The revenue of the Lethbridgie post office as given in another column proves conclusively that this city is more entitled to a post office building than Medicine Hat.

Mr. Cope upheld the home mission cause from the financial standpoint. T. Taylor told of the greater blessing of the church Ixicauso of foreign mission activity. Miss IVmnott lor the negative, in a clever speech refuted many of the�ir opponents arguments which tho loader of the afllrniativo in closing tried to reestablish. The judges J. D. Higinbotham, W.

Twenty Sunday School pupils gave a missionary exercise in a pleasing manner. Refreshments were served in the ba..�}ment bringing to a close a very pleasant meeting, ly a .s'tock sliipping point.

Oliver, as a crty father of long standing, defended the action of tho councils for the! last few years therb by drawing the flro of Jas. Barclay who thougi|t thait ' the Council had To the Editor of The Herald,- As a worklngman I do not agree with Mr. Ives criticism of the Small Debt Ordinance io youir paper last week. It is all very well for this gentleman tu complain abourt the foes of the lawyer lieing hit but heav.en knows tho lawyers have plenty of chances to ntake up on the larger cas est I think' tho Albopta government is to be commended for this act. If 1 go to a grocer and order goods and the grocx'r gives me credit he is taking a risk. If he finds I cannot pa^ the account when expected ho sues me and if Mr. Ives had his way the law costs in >the action ct^uld be made more than the account itself. We don't want anything of that sort. We all may get into debt sometimes but most of us are anxious to pay though we cannot do it Just when wo like. Mr. Ives would like to see us sued and make us whack up a big bill of kosts too. As you explained it is easy for the merchant under this act to proceed to collect without the services of a lawyer and thus avoid costs. This ought to be satisfactory �Vours truly, A TOILEUf Lethbridge, Nov. cth, 1907. To the Editor of The Herald: I understand tho Small Debt Ordln ancc is about tho same as the law in Ontario and alms to prevent lawyers piling up heavy bills of costs in small cases. That seems to be a Sensible measure. am also told the existence of the District Court with sittings at every important point in every Judicial district every month or so will expadiate the MBttlbmentl you can have local view Post Cards, a la Caunt, and ALL other kinds at Si cents each.
