PRICES CREAM BAKING POWDER A Pure Cream 6f Tartar Powder Indispensable to beslTresuits saves health-saves complaints at table oral meeting of the board: Arthu Higinbotham, Inman Salberg am Hliynd Jamleson. Board of Trade Discusses Very Important Issue-Executive Meeting Koutino matters chiefly took up th time of the executive of the Board o Trade last evening. A communication from the Lethbridge Poultry Assocla tlon asking that a cup be donatet by the board for competition at the annual show of the association 'was favorably received and it was agreed to donate a trophy in order to encour Ego tha poultry industry. Arrange ments will also be made to hold a 'banquet to Henry Holmes and. other Southern Alberta wheat champion growers which will be held in the S. 6. Cafeteria on Friday, 29th lust. Gates at Crossing The question of agitating for gates at 13th street crossing was taken up as it was felt that these were neces- sary for the protection of the public. 'After some discussion it was decided that Mr. McKeowu should take up the matter with the city solicitor for the purpose of determining exactly the altitude which the C. P.' R. intend to take in the matter. i Industrial Question The secretary presented his report im his recent, trip-to Rogina in con- nectiou with the bonusing system to Industries and tills 'was received with favor. It was agreed to appoint a eirecial committee to examine into the matter of- subdividing the industrial sites as the question of de- velopment along this line was one which the city would have to face dur- ing the coming year. The Marks; Problem -Mr. McKeown produced a sketch Plan showing the kind of a market house which he suggested should be brought into use in the city. He ex- plained the advantage to "be gained iiy opening up a public market where the people could go and purchase meats, butter and eggs and other commodities at greatly reduced prices thereby in a measure helping to solv the question of the high cost of living Instead of the farmer coming wit lis goods to the merchant he woul go to tire market and sell from ther direct to the consumer. Mr. Keown gave illustrations where con eumers could save largely. Ho though tiie question was one which shoul. be taken up with the cily council John Taylor, ho'wever, thought the lo cal merchants should be first consult ed in the matter as care should be taken not to antagonize parties It was decided to leave the matter open for discussion at the next regular meeting of the hoard.

Canadian trade commissioner in New Zealand reports that there are splendid pros- pects for a good trade in British Co- 'lumbia apples In New Zealand. He reports that the steamer Mackinaw which arrived at the end of last month had two coasignments of ap- ples and some pears. He says in re- gard to this siiipment: "One firm took 629 cases of Jona- than apples and the other 80 cases of Wealthy apples and 20 cases of poars. The pears were all right until taken out of the vessel'and then they seemed to become over-ripe quickly and some cases of them were ruined. As to the 80 cases of apples they were of splendid quality but' unfor- tunately 'w-ere too largo for ta'ble pur- poses. They sold for 12s. a case but voultl have brought higher prices had they been smaller and better adapted for table use. The shipper of tlrese apples has arranged for another 1000 cases to he sent at once." Edmonton, Alta., Nov. hundred pure-bred chickens, turkeys, ducks and geese, owned by the pro- vincial government, have been trans- ferred from the Hudson's Hay re- servo to tire new poultry farm on the south side of Edmonton, where the department of agriculture lias aequir. ed a site on ground belonging to the University of Alberta. It is announc- ed that the farm will be developed along the most modern lines, and ex- tended iu various ways. The farm is not run in competition with local breeders, neither does the department exhibit birds in competi- tion with private growers. The pur- pose is to supply farmers with pure- bred stock and eggs and assist them in improving their flocks. 'Orders for commercial eggs are turned over to growers in tile district. On account of the lack of space the stock had to he restricted to about throe hun- dred birds, .but now that more room i available, it is expected several bun tired chickens will be added to mee the demands of tho growers. New features will be installed nex year, and it is hoped to add depart ments that will be adequate- to meet the conditions in the growing .country The swallow is the speed king of the air, with a record of 300 feet a second.

"The Mason HIsch Co. as you said Mr. Mason, "has seventeen branches n Western Canada today which com llied with out eastern .business keeps, ur factories In Toronto working to nil capacity." Opinion of Lethbridge Mr. Mason's visit to Lethbridge was rompte-d by his desire to inspect con- itions here at close range. "First npressions usually count a great said Mr. Mason, who immediate- y proceeded lo speak the excellent aoner in which the city was laid ut. On alighting from the train Mr. 1 ason was strongly impressed with oiie sight, namely, Gait Garden which he says will-in a very shor time be wortli millions of dollars t the city. On looking at tlrese gan ens visitors 'would scarcely believ but what they were coming into a cit with least tha is the.impression 1 addc-. Mr. Mason, who also referred to the crric improvements. "My experienc has been that you must make you, place of business attractive if yoi wish to succeed, and that In the build ing up of a city the same plan mus be followed." The foregoing significant, remarks were delivered by Mr. .Mason with earnestness and plainly showed his views as one of Canada's most suc- cessful business men. M the opinion of Mr. 'Mason Lethbridge is .building up a solid future along proper lines first looking after its attractive- ness, and finally by exploiting the in- dustrial policy. This gentleman also said that Edmonton, Calgary, Moose Jaw and Lethbridge would be tho big citi-es of the prairie provinces. As to the future of Lethbridge Mr. Mason had no doubt. "Indeed, there is a suggestive metropolitan appearance about your city that somehow or othei strongly impresses ha said. Likes Commission Government Mr. Mason also noted that the ques- tion of a commission form of govern- ment was occupying tile minds of the citizens. Regarding this he said it should be the policy of the citizens to manage the city through commis- sioners who 'were experts In the true sense of the term. It would prove of everlasting benefit to secure men of integrity and ability and pay them well for their services. The operat- ing of a city's affairs by aldermanic control is not as a rule satisfactory inasmuch as each year sees changes. Get your commission form of govern- ment established along sound chan- nels and see that everybody pulls to- gether for the welfare of the cit Mr. Mason is a great believer iu pr serving harmony. llt, does not se how any city or business can su ceed if there aro warring faction: The character of a public man mus always .be closely watched, as tli cleaner the public man the better fo the moral good of tiie city.
