Lotbbridge is a big oiioug-h placo to have a wngoi.- for express delivei-j-purposes. The oxiiross company should be petitioned to put one on tlie strocts immediately. It is a nuisance for merchants anii others to be compelled to go to the station for every parcel that conids to them. HeiV! is a clianco for tho H�nrfl of Trade to make itself useful. SCARCITY OF HOUSES. \Vhat Lelhbriflgc iioocls at the nn-s-cnt time is a supply of new housc-j with niodoi'ii ooiiv ivsitlences nl once 'to supply the domanil. Strangers are coming liei-c every day with tho ;ntcntiO)� of locatiii{j but when thuy find they cannot got comfortable homes to rent they become discon -tented and leave the city. Surely .some of our citizen.s who haw money to invest can readily realize that an investment of this sort, would pay a big dividend, ami also help the city along. With business places there is rn equal scare.ty. Several men have Ijoen here recently looking for Ioi;at ions hut not a vacartt store of any kind is to be had in the city. Our citizens who ovn lots on tho busi -nes9 .streets should arrange to nut up substantial blocks right awnv. The.v Wouldn't be vacant a second after they were completeil. money, a tradlc br.dgc in contioct-ion with the new CT-'.K. I>riresent heavy climbs in and out of tho city will guarantee to this city the. trade of iho county to the north nr.d west for all time. If we don't get it a town will siiring i p on the other side of the river that will cut a big chunk of business a-way from us, bocatise the farmers detest the drive into the city undi-r present conditions. Our people ought to pet togeUi.-i-and make a strong appeal for .lid for a high levoJ trafBc bri. tween here and Macleod means that -several towns will spring up vest here, just as soon as tlMj tracks are laid. Medicine Hat is figuring on securing a Presbyterian Ladies' College that is to bo established in Alberta. Lethbridgc is the best place for su.-h an institution. It is a central point It has all modern conveniences. H it alove all it is the home of n host of l>nchelors and th-> f- " roild qu.ckly graduate from the College into positions of mistress of a ha 'Py Ijpthbridgo home. Lethbridgc is growing fast, never was its development more markiHl. In a year's time, the transfonnat -ion will bo wonderful. THEjTRAmC BRIDGE. It is up to the citizens, the council and lionixl of trade to make a dead set on Ottawa and Edmonton governuK'nt.'? ond tho CIMJ to secure even if it costs this city a slice of na^s off to tho C.r.n. They ,ir.' doing and are going to do more for this city than any other irstitutio'i The erection of the new bridgemo?.r.s wonderful things for this city. Don't forgot aliout making every mayoralty and Alderinanic candidate promise to pist our streets in dec.-iit shajio next .vear. Our fanners are pi>terprising. W.' know of four near tho city who iuivo applied for the exten. keep the prairie prov.nccs i'roin fr^'�/ ing to death this winlei'. Socalisin will crain strength if a groat natural resoiirco like coal at our peopU^'s very doors is kept from the people this winter. A man named Vray has Ixvn elected to Congress in Montana. Ho '.o-licves moiv than ever in the poui':-that goes with his nnme. GOSSlP|�r.i� ON THE SIDE '""I" A ni?gro has h(vn eli'cted to th.^ Legislature of M.nnesoln. The sonili will not recognize Jlir.nosotn as a state after committing such a terrible sin as that. Ifearst, the Democratic candidat . would not address Sunday uieetint;s in New York Slate. He made 1 is Sunday papers do his campaigning on that day instead. Onto fellow is Hearst. Watch Cranbrook grow! \ve meuu '.ti Consv^rvative porities.-Cranbrook Prospector. This is a very foolish hope. The. loss praces grow in any kind of politics the better. What e\-ery city, town and hamlet in tlv west needs and mu.st has'O bel'or.i they can pr'!."--prr is unit.^ and uniL.v will not pre vail if tnc ambition is to pu.'ih party ism. rolilics should le kept out of every institiKion in evorj' place. A Toronto minister says the Ontario bank directors \TOre ncTt fit to manage a hen roost. Hear, hoar. The^y- were a lot of bad eggs. The Toronto Telegram la.9t week said Hcar.st was a force. It is up to that paper to remark now that lie is a "busted phenom." The wish was evidently father to the thought when the Toronto (Siooo reportwl that Hon. Chns. S. Hyman had resigned. Hon. Mr. Motherwell is right. A coal famine this w.nter will give a black eye to immigration. Tho public will soon bo warranto 1 in demalKling that the government Lake over the operntiim of onr coal mines. Coal was not given to this country by tlie Creator for the purpose of causing rows betwe^^n mine own -ers and their employees. Coal wns intendofl for use of the i>eople an.l if they don't gel il. th.-ro'll be trouble. " IvClhbridge is lively. Soo that li\o men are elected to the Council. I-et the motto of the new Council Hon. Chas. S. llyniai. is wrongly Jiuring the initiatory services o( tho Methodist church, F'ort William, according to tho Timcs-.lourial, when forty now members weix� added to the congregTvtion, the big sw ni? door was pushed open wide and u goat entered. Blnnchwli fncas w.rc turned tovards tho unbidden fcuest, anlcrboro, a man from the north country thought he struck the reason for their presence, when he remarked, "That's (or an overhead sewer." Uilly Short of High Uiver, claims the wind blew so hard at Macleod tho other night that the electric lights were blown out. And every -\nnty knows how serious "Billy" is in his conversations. Tho winsome chorus and duncing girls who wore here lust week with /.inn's Tra\-c8ty troupe, caught the fancy of a ruuilier of our yotuig nun After their lust performance here the girls were dined at one of the cafes bj- tho ga.lants and later escorted to the depot, the young nwr. carrying the girl's suit cases with all tho delight of a hotel porter, who has been given a nice lip. .\t the depot the cruel stroke caiuk'. The actresses gave the noys the inoro' ha ha, and boarded Iho train with-o\)t even u bow of tho head. The now proprietor is already infusing fresh vigor lirto.tho Medicine H�t Times. In a month's time Mr. AnH>y will make iho IHmes a dis -tinct credit to Medicine Hat if tho initial ntimber under his niamtge-inent is any criterion. SPORTING GOSSIP. --\ld. K. .1. Stuart is a cawlidate for Mayor of Calgary. 1 use' cables were l>eing C.ncinnati is still talking aljout ttic strange sermon delivered toy Huv. Don. tJ. Tullis, pastor of tho Popular St. rresbyterian Church, on the death of the late "Uuck" Ewing.

Everything is ir. the balance. "This day will decide, not t'le world's championship, but the groat cr struggle of eternity. "One there ts among the war-scir-red veterans upon whom all eyes are fostewd. "He has won man.v a game before "He has heard the plaudrls of thousands, and recei\'edi tlwj applause of nviUions in his da.v. "Will he be able to win this game.

"Strike one, the umpire cries. ".'Vgain the sifhere flics, by while tha battor stands unmoved. " '.Strike two' come.s the voce through the gloom. "He pulls himaelf together, liii� frame like iron. "His features arc immovable; the hall once more speeds toward ihv! plate.

Now that the profcssiona stage has f.Hvu rached, his presoaci in the city us a club rcprcsentalivj will be a great 'help to the game. MtNlicinc Hat has also a great d.uj of enthusiasm ami will do its sharj towards making tho new cluti a such ooss. There is � good crowd Ushinil tho (ranchi.se, and the citizens wil support the team. ^monton-well, yes, there pntb-ably win be some enthusiasm there. There vma some report, in baseball circles last year that they had a good teoin. This .war it �vill bo ; jitter, for Ueacon White says so. As far as can l� judged from un untried experimooit the arrangement looks good in tBfferent lines of sport'. The travelling expenses will not be wryheavy as the circuit is a compact one. The salary limit placed at $1,200 a month, looks large to some. Possibly It is a lot of money, but (o get first-clttss XiaiM or something near it, good salaries have to Ix) paid. Thciv? is very little doUbt that the finances can be easily arnvn).:"d The expor.ence of the Calgary rmi IWmonton teams last season 'vns that if they had only had >niore games, and consecfuentl'y inoru gate mone.v, there would not haw been any trouble in supporting a team.
