If you know any news, let the Herald in on the proposition. The management would consider it a threat favor for anyone to let them mow of unythiug of interest to the people. Lethbridge is one of the best equipped towns, as far as hotels are concerned, to be found in the West. Not only are the buildings modern and well furnished, but the service surpasses that to be found in many eastern towns. Several delegates from the state of Washington were here during the last ten days looking over the country with a view to becoming settlers This district is attaining much attention by those who know a good thing when they see it. Brother Hairell, of the News, is the kind of a gentleman with whom it is a pleasure to transact business as a business competitor. Mr. Hagell is entirely devoid of a small, petty spirit, and has placed the Herald management under many obligations for kindly courtesies shown. Lawrence McKim gave a goose dinner to a number of friendsat his home on Hallowe'en night, and a yery pleasurable time was spent.

Kennedy a Winnipeg candy traveller, was in the city a I days ago and exhibited a curio which at this time of Trafalgar memories attracted great interest. It was one of the admission tickets to the funeral of Lord Nelson at Westminster Abbey on January 9th, ISOt), and bore the signature of Dean Lincoln. J Hart, proprietor of the l'ala. e restaurant in the t'oaldale hotel, is an example of what a hustler who understands his business, can do. Not long ago he started with little or nothing, but by industry and close attention to business he has built up a reiniineiali\e business and made his place a popular resort for those who want their money's worth at the table. There has been a report gaining circulation of late to the effect that the ranchers are being compelled to dump their cattle on account of lack of feed. Some of the prominent stock raisers of the district have requested th.i Herald to deny this report, and say that the ranchers ^have plenty of feed at their command and also that they find the buyers quite hard to deal with, inasmuch as they will sign their checks for nothing but Al beef cattle. Merchants desiring to change their ads. must . avo the copy in this odice not later Hum ten o'clock Tuesday morning. The country around Lethbridge is a veritable paradise for the lovers of automobiling, anil the time is not far distant when automobiles will be as common in Lethbridge as dust on a windy day. Hallowe'en passed off very quietly here, and no complaints of ' damage by over-oxuborant kids j have "been heard. Time was when they made it an occasion to practice ! all kinds of deviltry. And many 1 older heads of unprincipled character, we regret to Bay, often lay for this occasion to work themselves rid of a fancied grudge by damaging his neighbor's property, etc. But the times advance in all things and this silly relic of the dark ages is also being relegated to a back seat. | Some very attractive and artistic ' signs add greatly to the metropoli-tan appearance of tho now Southard building. At the upper front corner on either side is a sign *)0xl7 feet, with black background and white lettering, bearing Mr. Southard's name and business in letters ranging from Sl� to 4Jj feel in length. In raised letters on the front cornice "Southard" stands out strikingly in gilded letters J. (J. Leadbetter. of Bradley Co.. Cranbrook, is the well-known sign-writing artist who did the work; and the job is certainly one that will in no wise detract from his reputation in this line. Young Bros., the extensive sheep dealers, have an interesting report from their ranch in township o. range S. on Badwater lake, about 00 miles east. They will winter some 0000 head of sheep. Then-is lots of feed at present, but for winter emergencies they have put up over 100 tons of hay, which will be fed in three sheds HX) feet square, which have recently been erected. They have raised UTUU lambs with a loss of only -10 since May last. The sheep will shear at about 00 per head for wool, and tin* average expense per head per year for running is about ."iOcents. Besides the winter sheep Young Bros, have 2000 head of mutton ready for sale. They report the market the best, for some time, and the selling price is from SM.liO to &5.(>.">. The average breeding for country is given at 7.") per cent. PHOTOS Hammond Bros. Photographers To ndverttse their fine and up-to-date Portraits, will give Free Sittings To all who call THIS WEEK.

Wakely of the firm of Hick & Wakely, has been at Raymond tho past week, installing plumbing und heating fixtures in the new Bank of Montreal Mr. Clark, of the firm of Butcher & Publow, musical instrument dealers, of Calgary, was in town a few days last week, accompanied by his wife and family. Mr. Clark was combining pleasure with business and will probably open a branch store for the firm. Hick & Wakley have a busy time of it these days, with all their contracts for furnishing several of the new buildings in town with steam fittings, plumbing, etc. This energetic firm now has six men in its employ, and have been tapping the wires the last few days for more help. Win. Ott has a couple as fine stallions quartered in his stables as one could wish to look at. They were brought here from Manitoba by his brother, and are of the Perchoron and Shire breed, weighing about 1700 and 11)00 pounds respectively. Mr. Ott will place tho animals on the market. R.A. Wright has added a beautiful piece of furniture to his store in the shape of a panel 7x6 feet, set in a h frame. It staud�l|t tore bttjkwMptM Lethbridge is not a Frank, but it has its own atmospheric tantrums. On Wednesday last J. (i. Leadbetter's buggy was being backed out of Whitney's livery stable when a frolicksomc gust caught the vehicle and whirled it along the avenue. Frantic efforts wore made by several bystanders to capture tht3 strange runaway, but it kept on its wayward course until brought to a halt by coming in contact with the curbstone with such force as to break both shafts. A bunch of 1)50 head of cattle, which P. Burns & Co. had picked up from among the ranchers of the district and were corralled in the CP.It. stock yards, broke through the enclosure the other day and led the punchers a merry chase in gathering them in. They eventually succeeded, however, and on Wednesday afternoon last this bunch, with just 2.*)Sl more, that were driven in from various quarters, were started for Calgary by trail. It was a magnificent sight to see this immense number of fine cattle marching off in one 88. The Dallas' First Anniversary Among the numerous business enterprises which of recent years have proven abundantly successful in Lethbridge. owing to the foresight and business staminn of their promoters, the Hotel Dallas stands prominently in the front ranks. On Tuesday of last week this now famous hostelry celebrated its initial anniversary. Just one year previously the doors of the Dallas were thrown open to the public and tin* first guests, lAdeihert ami Orson Cazier. contractors, of Milk River, t penned their autographs to the register. Since the time Mr. Kckstortn first contemplated his hotel until its completion he was often given the chilly mitt and not a few of the wise ones predicted for him a business funeral in less than half a year's time. This, too, might have easily been the result had the venture been in less capable hands lint when the busiuessabilities of Landlord Eckstorm were put into play success was assured from the juinp-otV. Today, after only one short year of life, the Dallas is in excellent financial shape and one of the most modem institutions in this sect ion of the west. For service and comforts it is unsurpassed and its cuisine is a byword with the traveling public. You hear of it at both ends of tho line. It pays to be up-to-date. A Modern Institution.. Lethbridge Iuib many public industries and institutions that re-quire no apology for the greatest degree of pride she may bear in them. By no means to be overlooked among these is tho Lethbridge Electric Company, which, with its recently acquired improve-wonts has a plant of the most up-to-datc typo and of large capacity, and it would be hard to find a more com pleto ar more compact one in many a day's travel. The concern has made many radical changes in its equipment during tho paBt two or three years,, advancing stage by stage, throwing out antiquated machinery and replacing it with the latest and best, until today it stands a model modern electrical power manufactory. The latest addition to the plant is a direct connected Bullock generator Robb-Armstong engine, which is now being installed with a capacity of 200 KW. This is a duplicate of the other monster engine in use only the latter has not the direct connection appliances. The new marble panel switchboard, whereby the control and direction of currents is greatly simplified is another wonder of modern invention. These improvements bring into vogue a duplicate system, whereby if one part of the mechanical organism is disarranged the other can at once lieconnected and pntctically no cessation of service result. The plant now has a capacity of 10.(JO0 sixteen candle-power lights, and is supplying a most adequate motive power service. There are many other features in this concern that are most interesting, and anyone who can enjoy the throb and pulse of mammoth engines or the wonderful humanlike workings of 1905 mechanism should avail themselves of the first opportunity to take a jaunt through this up-to-date institution. Many people never give a thought as to whence conies the light that so effectually radiates and beautifies their homes, places of business, etc. An investigation would delight and surprise them. Manager Freeman and his capable assistants are to be congratulated on their (nterprise, and the expense to which the company is going is just another instance to illustrate the well-founded confidence that is generally felt in Lethbridge and her environs. nomical heat as the at for the Used... ater and S; ii s our specialty fiick * Olakcly Fit-Rite Clothing fotmen Stanfield Unshrinkable Undeiwear fot me, The Ames Holden Boob , and Shoes Tooke Bros, fi Hen s Fur Jos.

Lethbridge has been extremely lucky in never having any drawbacks in thi' way of serionB fires, and probably that, to some extent] at least, accounts for tho apparent ( indill'ereiice in many instances to the matter of insurance rates. In some portions of the town the rate is extremely high. That may have been all right beforo the present system of wtiterworks wnB installed or the tire-fighting apparatus' brought to its present excellent standard. But things have chang-i"! since those days. We understand there has been no effective movement taken since the town has been supplied with this splendid protection to effect a modification in the rates. This is by no means as it should be. It is unjust that Lethridgo should pay as high a rate, or higher, as many places that are veritable tire traps and with but meagre protection, while here buildings generally are fairly well isolated and the town is in possession of as line a system for fire fighting as will be found iu almost any other city of its size in the whole Dominion. Wo know of more than one instance in this fair city where buildings are entirely unprotected by insurance owing to the excessive rate. This is a Btate of affairs that is to be deplored, and the matter is worthy of more than passing interest. Wo hope to Bee the board of trade or council, back ed by the citi/.enB in general, take this matter up with the under ' " de Big Surprises in Watches, Lockets and Jewelry Absolutely New Designs in Gold Rings, Cold Jewelry, Rich Cut Glass, Hand Painted China, Sterling Novelettes, Leather Goods and Ebony WRIGHT BROS ' UP-to-DATE CATALOGUE will give you the pricas on the above goods j~ _j' m_f\j~u^f\jmumw~\_r\j~ i_n_i~i_j u-n_ri-tlj-lj-!-r-i "L-nu~Lj-i-^ -i - -j""-~_~___ro-u-u-.j-i.r-i- ----- --.-j-^-j-ii-t-u-j-u-i-i-u-u-i-n.
