S The Lethbridge-Weyburn Realty Co., Ltd Phone 122 Ground Floor Offices. First Door South of Balmoral Hotel Round Street Dad did quite a stunt this week, when he issued a letter savins what he would do if he had the runninc- of things another year. In his piece nf advice He said many things that are the real thing and require no com- mendation or boosting by his dutiful son. I can't exactly agree on -his Board of Control idea or his subway proposition, although what he drives at is alright. By the time Dad and I talk these things over a few times we'll likely come to some understand- ing on the matter. 3Tit these are rnstters for later consideration. has been telling us all year that he "has been doing the best he and that "he -was there for that that "we have a great city, it has got all the others skin- ned a and that "there was nothing to it" but to "put.oip the money" to keep it great and make it greater. From time to time he has told the people how they could put up the money and what for, and thev have always agreed that his proposi- tion was a good one, and voted the money he wanted. Now he comes along and tells the people how to Sold by all Reliable Dealers Sole Canadian Agent D. O. Roblin, of Toronto. Whisky of Real SIS make the city still greater, and how ip spend some money to good ad- vantage for that purpose. Most of the people who have expressed the re- sult of the deliberations of their grav matter cells have agreed on the whole with Dad's say-so, and the things he suggests are not anyway new. But Dad isn't going .to be mayor next .year and he won't have the spending of the money. Uncle Shorty bids fair to hold down the job ?that goes with the big chair in the auto- Now, I think with W. D. L.. Hardie that it would be a darn good stunt for Uncle Shortv to issue a statement of his platform for the year, and tell the dear great gen- erally suffering and trusting public what he'll do about it if they make him the main 'guv in the city. I i know Uncle Shorty well enough to know that he has got some darn good ideas, and that he has abilitv to put them into effect. I think ought to trot them out, and let people know where they would be at when he is mayor. Everybody who knows him at all would trust Uncle Lengthy to do wtiat is right accord- ing to his best judgment (which bv the way is pretty darn but even good judgments often differ. It seems to me that the people ought to think carefully over this The Best Dressed Young Men of Today "Wear Sovereign Brand Clothing Sec that your suit bears this label This label denotes Correct Style and superiority HAMILTON If you want to be absolutely sure of the style of yonr garments. of the quality of the fabrics and workmanship, see that they the Sovereign Brand. If your deader does not keep-it, write us W.E. Sanford Mfg. Co., Ltd. WINNIPEG confounded, street car business. As J read the papers from the east and west and read about the scraps the municipalities are having with the street car companies, and of the poor service the people get, and then rea-l the high praises of Guelph, Calgary artd Edmonton for their municipally owned street car outfits, I'll ed if I can help wishing to see this city make a stab at putting in -and operating the business itself. The main trouble is going to Be putting up the money in the first place, but even at that I think the city has as much money and credit as thf; fol- lows who propose to put the tji.ny; in. I -have bern told, (but 1 don't know how true i' thai t-he coin- panv intends to start llie business off with not more than Thirty., thousand dollars put up. If thi- company can finance the affair on chat ajnoimt o: capital, it's a darned easy thing fur the city to do it, for thirty thousand is a .mighty small amount for this city to consider on a sure thing. I'm against, the city putting up anv large amount of .money on a like a natural gas well, but if indi- viduals want to take it up that wav that's their business and none of mine. I've-heard Dad say that hr all the cost of the street car sys- tem figured. out, that the city's con- sulting engineer, Mr. Kensit. has fig- ured out the whole shenanagan. If Dad has these figures let him trot them out and let the people see how they look. They know that the street car system is a sure thing as an in- vestment here sometime, and if thev can handle the investment they want it for themselves. They put up the monev anyway by buying the tickets, and if they can put up the capital as well as the ticket money and get good interest on both, why shouldn't they It's their own money in cases, the streets are theirs and the city is 'ditto. Let's have the ficrurcs and see how the darn thing looks be-' I forft deciding to srive ,to a few men. 'know that some of my uncles agree I that any guy who imagines he can find a man who will serve the city I better, and who knows more about j the work of which he is the superin.- j tendent has got to go some to make 'his imagination a reality. He is-not one to blow a lot about himself, but i he does a Sam Hill of a lot of work and knows what he is about all the it takes a better man than I some fellow who didn't get a con- jtract to shoV him up; Several men j tried that before, but Reid had- a trump hand every time, and when it came to a shown down it Tas like trying to beat a full house "with a pair of deuces. children, the youngest of which was- born a few days ago.

Blum, Kittitas, county. i And by taking a considerable jump from one thing to another, I feel con- strained to remark upon the mean. shyster-like criticism that Dad and jmy uncles have to suffer sometimes. There are a mean lot of guys -who have always got their noses, stuck out to try to scent a-rat. The jov Supt. Reid's attempt to pry open the treasury box and shake out an- other twenty-five a month has caused some discussion on both sides of the question. One guy undertook to ex- press himself publicly in the press, and privately behind an assumed name, by saying that Mr. Reid was getting all he was worth, and that, the city with hand should have -a man with wider experience than what. Mr. Reid has had. I'm not saying that Mr. Reid should get any- more salary, for I really think that with S.I50 a month, ja free house, free fuel and free light j and water, ho has got a pretty good [thing, and that it is about all that the job is worth even though Mr. Reid may be worth more. But T i want to express my opinion and I think 't.feftv have Vii-wj J found something makes one think that to them the smell of the backyard of a Chink restaurant is all the same as attar of roses. These guys are al- ways trying to peek in behind the j scenes to find some ulterjior motive for every man's action. They seem to think that everyone who advocates anything is going to work-a graft out of it. So when Dad says that the Smith street spur should be built so as to he more convenient for pres- ent and future wholesalers, he is al- leged to be doing it to increase the value of his own pioporty. When Ex- j uncle Ives undertakes to look after J the'city's interests he is accused of I looking out for himself by drawing fees from -both ends by looking after" the interests "of the other fellow." rif Uncle Charlie or Uncle George sug- gcst anything in Council it is be- cause they want to sell some real estate or get a better price as-a re- sult. It certainly shows the idea some fellows have of the work of a citv Dad. If they only knew it. and it would not be hard to prove, every alderman in the city loses business and lots of it, every month he spends on the Council looking after the in- terests of such, who, like curs, bite the hand that cares for them. I'd awfully hate to trust men with such diseased and contorted ideas on the Council. Gee! they'd stand all kinds of watching. It would do me good when they make such, sneaking insin- j nations without foundation to play a tattoo on their slats and use my drum-slicks on their base drums to the tune that the ok) cow died on. 30 This is tlae Mark!

Every good work is preceded by a dream which most folks think will never come true. In 1897 the Semi-ready system of tailoring was "predicted" to failure by its many 190 merchant tailors applied for Semi-ready agencies in Canada during the past year. Every city of size has its Semi- ready tailoring centre of correct fashion for men.
