It is true that our enterprising postmaster built a very substantial block, in which the poitofllce now occupies .larger and more up-to-date quarters but w� think that Mr. Higinbotham will agree with us that the growth of tlK cHy will very boor, if not at the present, warrant a larger and diatinct building (or the postal baai-tiesa of thia city. The turnover in the postofficc here each year is only e.xceeded by the cities of Calgary and Edmonton in this {Movinoc. These citiaa and Medicine Hat, with a �mailer revenue than ours have build-ingSi or are about to have buildings, lor the accommodation of the postnI business. Why not Lotbbridge? The only way to inipi-css. the government, with, our needs is to vontin-ually keep them btforc it. The postmaster general, on his western trip Should be urged to visit this city and made to understand that a post-wlflce is a necetsity here. Mr. Sim -mons, our energetic local mcniibcr has brought the matter to the attention of the Minister of the Interior and it is now lip to us to get after the Postmaster General. nmuseniont and intellectual advnn c -niciit.

An.iifiij'O.A.i;, We still cling to tho opinion that .the projier place for the location of our public buildings is the Public fjquare. Many of our citizens want to see the square held for all time to coinc as a park Init the presence of several public buildings there would .still leave, plenty of open .s[>ace for recreation purposes. Nothing wc.uld enhance the appearance of our city more than tlie presence of its public buiUiings on a square, surrounded by irees, and tvith paths, lined by rows of flowers and large green spaced dotted with flower beds and trees.' Such a scene would be a vast in� -provement on the square as it is at preseni. Do you ever compare Lt^hbridge with other places in the country? When you proud to hiwtio for Ihc'City.

Nothing like making good plans lor the future. Sooner or later the city will erect a sub-t^tantial municipal building. Prob -ably next year the erection of a nev court hcuse will be undertaken by tho provincial government and if'we keep pounding away a postoflico building will be granted us. Now is it not desirable that all those buildings should stand cn the present public square convenient to every -Jiody and in the heart of the busi -ness portion of the city. A traveller remarked the other day on the wonderful growth of western cities and in doing so expressed the hcipe that none of them ever suffer from cliques and political influence in the management of civic affairs. He instanced the case of an Ontario city that had practically stood still for the past ten years owing to the lack cf unity on the part of the people and the doiainittipa in the manage-iiMitt cl ciVic oflkiri of a clique, anxious to prontote the interests of in -dividuais in preference to the ad -^uuemeat'of'tha city. The west is a new country and has the opportunity of benelitting from the mistakes of older countries and in no one more than in the matter of civic govern -ment and civic advancement. Not only does the scheming of cliques and politicians enter municipal, life but Ivcal organixatio||8 of all kinds, also. These are used tO advoncc selfish in-ttreata to ttaa jeopardy uf the pur -poses originally iatended. To Lathbridii-eitiiMis we would �ay, "Keep Tofettber."

In the first C.P.R. crop report all that appeared opposite Lethbridge was the one word "favorite."

Hon. W.T. P'inln,v, Provincial Minister of Agriculture wns in the city on Tuesday nnd in conversation with the Hcrakl said that he wns here moroly looking after the Beef Coni-mi.s.sion investigtition which will be held,here on .luno 12 and 13. Com-plaiats had been made b.vthe farmers and small stockhohlers that a coin-bine existed among the larger hohl-ci's that was detrimcntnl, to their interests. TitL'y want to know the reason foif the dilVoi-ence �>etween the prices paid farmers ami the prices paid butchers for beef. The Honorable Minister said that the Conuiviss-ion had power to make a thoroug*j iiivcs'tigation nnd would -do .so. A great deal, however, i-ests with the con>,plninnnls who must nttenil the meetings nnd present their case fully H is therel'oic nf the greatest im-pcrtanio that those interested should bo on hand. Sfieaking of other matters in connection with his de(mrtmont, Mr. Finlny remarked that there was a demand that the government take up tho aork. packing industry as they had the creamery and poultr,v busi -ness and with such success. He thought it was hardly practicable yet but ithat the hog-raising industry was receiving every encourapBinent. The coming of Prof. Campbell of Kansas, the dry farming e.\pert, will bo a groat benefit to 'the farn^rs of .Southern Alberta as he will address meetings and grant interviews on the subject of dr.v ami irrigated farming.

That tlie " Semi-ready" system oi tailoring must ultimately prevail, iut tlie manufacture of the finest hoota have vanquisheJ the old custom-niaJe'boot, is the universal belief o{ the maiiy who have watched the splendid growth ol the idea. one difficulty which Semi-ready tailoring had to surmount was that of conveying in words the exact meaning oi the many mnovations and improvemenits ^ introduced under the one name, " Semi-rejidy. ^ This difficulty was oflset by the enthusiasm o{ all who bought Semi-ready garments and told their iriends about the Pliysiqtie Type System, based on height and weight measurements, and meetiiig every variation cauled^ environments or physical temperament.
