MeKeuzie. a returned veteran, who has been in close touch with the needs of returned men. ��"Such a hospital I undoubtedly vlll he. a necessity and would be ni great acquisition.

My I I idea is that the statue can be Incur- I porated right into the facade of the.  building. There is no reason why a great entry arch, depleting the war !and what our soldiers fought and died for might not be made a part of the building.

Tho office will be . located in the People's Drug Store on t3th Strect'north. and business will be done in money orders, registered i mall, parcels and stamps-while a post ; box and a parcel box will be provided for tho convenience of the public. No mail delivery, however, will lie made from the sub-oflice.

PORTER, AUCTIONEER ' Almost Certain City Will Secure Some of These War . Trophies Lethbridge is going; to secure some captured German cannon as war trophies. That i.s considered a fairly sure thing. Hut what is Lothbridgo going to do In the way of a museum of-war trophies? There are hundreds of Interesting trophies which aro picked up on the battlefields, and Lethbridge will bo losing an opportunity if, as a city, It does not secure enough to make a fairly complete and historical collection. This idea wa� discussed by the Herald with Mayor Hardie on Wednesday afternoon, with the result that he agreed tho suggestion was a good ono and that u start on making the collection should bo made right away. Tho mayor's nlan in outline is this: If some trophy could b� secured from every LethbridgA soldier, together with what could be secured In other ways, a very fine collection could ba made. And In order 4.0 make some return to/the soldiers donating the trophies it would be the city's Idea to have a disc engraved with the donor's name attached to tbo trophy given by each soldier. In this way the collection would become doubly historical for it would not only depict In a measure The Great War, but it would also link it up with Lethbridge through tho names of the Lethbridge soldiers whose names appeared on. the trophies as the donors, if Lethbridge gets a public library a room inlgoi be set apart as a war museum nil owing the trophies brought buck by Lethbridge soldieis. Rut In the meantime it is well that a t.tart bo made in collecting the various trophies, and the niayor suggests that a case be provided iu the hallway of the city hall where the. beginning of tho collec-tion might be exhibited. The niayor in anxious to hear from the people of the city, and especially from the returned soldiers, to leurn if the plan Is workable, and it so, a start will be made at once In carry-Ins it out. , It is pointed out that, should Lethbridge build a library>.aB a memorial to the soldiers nothing would be more fitting thuu to havf sLfarge room set apart as a war mlsepii, This, with captured cannon guarding the entrunce of tho building, wou) },B�U> U> create tfe� proper sotting, PURE BRED HORSES CATTLE, PIGS, FARM IMPLEMENTSJETC.
