If you know any news, let the Herald in on tlie proposition. The maiuigeinent would consider it a great favor for anyone to let them know of unythiug of inten^st to the iJeople. Lethbridge is one of the best equipped towns, as far as hotels are concerned, to he. fonnd in tJie West. Not only are the buildings modern and well furnislied, 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 v,'heen ruijoying with a party in the southern country. P. Bums & Co. shipped 1000 head of sheep from Lethbridge Thursday. They have already shippetl 6000 head from here to Calgary this fall, and expect to obtain between 9.000 and 10,000 more. These sheep are all raised between the Milk and Belly rivers. The company will winter 15,000 head at Calgary. Wm. Kennedy a Winnipeg candy traveller, was in the city a few days ago and exhibited a curio, which at this time of Trafalgar memories attracti'd great interest. It was one of the admission tickets to the funeral of Lord Nelson at Westminster Abbey on January 9th, 1806, and bore the signature of Dean Lincoln. J Hart, proprietor of the Pahice restaurant in the Coaldale 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 reijnunerative business and made his place a popular resort for those who want liieir 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 tha 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. Lethbridge is not a Frank, but it has its own atmospheric tantrums. On Wednesday last J. G. Leadbetter's buggy was being backed out of Whitney's livery stable when a irolicksome gust caught the vehicle and whirled it along the avenue. Frantic efforts were made by several bystanders to capture this strange runaway, but it kept on its wayward course until brought to a halt by conung in contact with the curbstone with such force as to break both shafts. A bunch of 650 head of cattle, which P. Burns & Co. had picked up from among the ranchers of the district and were corralled in the C.P.R. stock yards, broke througli 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 2,581 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 sr. Merchants desiring to change their ads. must : ave the copy in this office nof, later than ten o'clock Tuesday morning. The country around Lethbridge is a veritable paradise for the lovers of automobiling, and 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 uietly here, and no complaints of ] aniage by over-exuberant kids have been heanl. Time was when they made it anoccasion to practice all kinds of deviltry. And many older lieads of unprincipled character, we regret to say, often lay for this occasion to work themselves i rid of a fancied grudge by damag-1 ing 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 scat. Some very attractive and artistic signs add greatly to the metropolitan appearance of the new Southard building. At the upper front corner on either side is a sign .50x17 feet, with black background and white lettering, bearing Mr. Southard's name and business in letters ranging from 3^ to 4 J feet in length. In raised letters on the front cornice "Southard" stands out strikingly in gilded letters J. G. Leadbetter, of Bradley & Co., Cranbrook, is the well-known sign-writing artist who -i-" -^' rr...v!tJ6mpany, Ltd. I. Neyin returned last ii� Calgary, where she has ing her sons.

Jpity this woek looking ^...__iiegarding th/ standpipo iMl^ifbout �i yeiiVNago, in the A Modern Institution.. Lethbridge has many public industries and institutions that re-quire no apology for the greatest clegree of pride she may bear in them. By no means to be overlooked among these is the Lethbridge Electric Company, which, with its recently acquired improvements has a plant of the most up-to-date type and of large capacity, and it would be hard to find a more complete ar more compact one in many a day's travel. The concern has made many radical changes in its equipment during the past 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 modem electrical power manufactory. The latest addition to the plant is a direct connected Bulock 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 be connected and pnlctically no cessation of service result. The plant now has a capacity of 10,000 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, aiid 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 comes the light that so effectually radiates and beautifies their homes, places of business, etc. An investigation would delight and surprise them. Manager Freeniian and his capable assistants are to be congratulated on their enterprise, and the expense to which the company is going is just another instance to illustrate the well-founded confidence that is generaUy felt in Lethbridge and her environs. Insurance Rates in Lethbridge. Lethbridge has been extremely lucky in never having any drawbacks in the way of serious fires, and .jjiobably that, to some extent at least, accounts for the apparent indifference in many instances to the matter of insurance rates. In some ijortions of the town the rate is extrc^mely high. That may have been all right before the present system of waterworks was installed or the fire-fighting apparatus brought to its present excellent standard. But things have changed 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 Letliridge should pay as high a rate, or higher, as many places that are N'critable tire traps and with but meagre protection, while here buildings generally are fairly well isolated and the town is in possession of us tine a system for fire lighting as will be found in almost any other city of its size in the whole Dominion. We know of more than one instance in this fair city where buildings are entirely unpioti'cted by insurance owing to the excessive rate. This is a state of att'nirs that is to be deplored, and the matter is worthy of more than passing interest. We hope to see the board of trade or council, back-eil hy the citizens in general, take this matter up with the underwriters and not only ask but demand a just and reasonable rate for tire ins";"r�>^-,f^*-.-;iT*!Ji!lr^5; and JEWELRY FROM privilege to pass the winter even - Pi'"!^ ^ ^Jl?* * T ings in the midst of pleasant amuse-' ViffiJ ments and good associations. , $ ZILLIAXI Before the 20th  oi this month ?
