Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 6, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta E'liPSOU^ BUCHANAN Ii l>ound live weight for chicken, and six cents for fowl upon receipt (f tin advice from the oficrator of the fattening station. 8. The department of agriculture agrees to .provide suitable accommodation and efHcient 'management for such co-operative poultry fattening stations as may Ite established and to properly crate and fatten thu birds accepted from patrons, and to market the same to the liest advin-tagc. 9. The department of agriculture agrees to keep an account of all revenue received from the sale of poul--try and after deducting the amount of the original advance, and the actual cost of fattening, and markqt-ing to return the balance at the close of the se�son to the patrons in proportion to the weight of poultry cratic but it worships dear old roy-aitV all the same. The post ofHce department ought to put a ban on some of the stuff that appears in the Noclety columns of our newspapers. Lowrcy's Claiirf had to go out of busincs-i it was nasty, but �� quostion . If his talk was much worse than .some of the silly stulT one sees dished up for the ladies to ivad. The Toronto Saturday Night is a well-ttlitcd paper, c.tccpt in its Society Columns, In these it gives occitsion for a visit of the censor as we Ijelievo the following piece of twaddle will prove: "A splendid little chap, hugging a v-hite plush bear (one of the latest toys in babyland), attracted attention on Tuesday from the crowds going in and out of the King F^d-ward. He was Master Forsoe of St. Louie, grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Ileid. who was celebrating his third birthday with groat oclnt." The poor little kid. Imagine how conceited he must have felt, as he stood in the corridors of the King Edward with the crowds rushing out of cafe find dining rooms to gape at the ".splendid little c4iap." Saskatchewan went east for a Deputy Attorney General and the selection of Frank Ford of Toronto, could not be improvod upon. We know Mr. Ford and in Ontario his reputation as a lawyer is of a high character. He has been in touch with public affairs indirectly, for years. For several years he was the confidential secretary of the late D'.VIton McCarthy and later he was private secretary to the late I'lvmicr Hardy of Ontario. Then he'lKy a wise and a progressive gov -crnment and the next few years will see wonderful development in Al  l>crta. reccivefl from each. EMTOIML NITEL Another flour mill la talking of locating here. We told you so. Once Lethbridge gets its name up as an industrial centre, manufacturers will v-ant to eatablish concema .here. Macieod is all puffed up because the governor general spent two houra in that place this week, without even asking 'How far is H to !jethl�ldge," A report ie in circulation tltat the Dominion Oovenument will be asked to allow SOOO Chinese to be faroitght in to assist in building the Grand Trunk Pacific thuiUl-ings arc arising ever.vwhore the e.\e turns. The mines are all busy anil the people arc confident the .:ew owners of the I'aber mine will jxish things along at a li%'ely clip. They tell me down there that the new manager e.xf>ccts to turn out 2.000 tons a day in a year's time, as well as eniploy ntany more hundrixl lianvls If this comes true, the boom at Taber will not cease. The depot at Taber looks well. It is not completed yet, but its arch -itectural design and arrangeniant makes it a neat and commodious building. Alex. Oanipbetl, is going to .'iiove hack into his old store, as soon as the Eastern Township's Ikink moves into the brick block now being i'lvct-ed by W. W. Douglas. Mr. Camplwll expects his wife and family out in three week's time. Keep boosting for lethbridge. To listen to some of the speeches ftt the Labor Day celebration tne vould imagine another political elec-tion was on. Senator McMullen, a Lilicral Senator with a narrow vision, complains that Ontario newspapers are to blame for the great exodus from Ontario to the West, because they keep talking about the west all the time. Now, the Senator wouldn't object to talk about Wellington county, Ontario, all the time, even if it might cause the depopulation of bordering counties. The Senator will fbid out, that a good thing always attracts people and that is the casj in the vest. People come out here because there are better opportun -ities to nuvke money than in Ontario. The son of an Ontario farmer can't get a farm of his own in Ontario unless he pays a big price, but he can come a-est and pick up a half section of as fertile land as is to be found in the world, for a more pittance as compared with Eastern prices. Don't worry Senator McMullen, the growth of the West isn't hurting Ontario. The wholesale houses, and manufacturers would have been out of business long ago if it hadn't been for the great growth of Western Canada. Taber is not the only place that is growing. The Stcttler Indepc^n dent in discussing the census returns says: "In December, last the pop -ulation of Stettler was about ten. rhe official census for the village just completed and sworn to  gives the population at 631. These returns are for perntanent residents, the village overseer who superviseJ the talcing of the census would not permit transients to be included. The overseer as.serts that were transients and campers in tents and so forth included the population of Stettler at present is quite 800." Did you ever try a twenty mile rifhi in the saddle, after having sat on cushions or office chairs most of your life. Well if you did, you can sympathize and understand that even cushions are not comfortable when you sit down after so long-a tide My memories of a saddle now are that it is a raggcil rock, which to sit upon is to sutTer all kimis of torment. They told mo after the first day's journey that I would lie ntitt but the next day the riding aouW not lie nearly so pain creating. But tfie "next" day hasn't arrived and I am still lame, disjointed, swollen and sore, Senator McMullen probably has noticed Ontario school teachers are rushing to the West. Why? Because the west pays bigger salaries than the E^st. So long as Ontario makes coppers the minimum of its wage cale Just so long will the west steal the best of Ontario's teachers. A.Hamilton man died at Minin-cognashenc. Probably his death was brought about in attempting to pronounce the name of that place. American newspapers have gone crazy oyer this -paragraph, which came over the wires from Europe: ; . ./'King Edward of England travelled to. Karlebod by automobil� yesterday, where he lunched with Mrs. Townsend of Chicago."  They look upon it as another great ; ylotor>v for an American woman. To think that - -Rngland's Ktog would aiitooioblle a few. miles to dine with laiilAnierican lady, swells their heads ao badly that thoy have to load �iipeolttiin after column of their pap-era with a.deacription of the King's trip; this 'Itineheon, etc. The Vnltsd Statli Hkea to ft!cl It is very demo- This man Sherrlng, the winner of the Marathon is being done to death aiid Winnipeg Council acted seneibty when it decided not to give him a civic reception when he visits that city. It was all very well for hie home city to give him a blow out.but why other Caitadian cities should be asked to assist in swelling his head, la more than we can understand. Sherring did nobly at Athens, but he did not bring any more fame to. the country, than a score of other young Canadians a-ho haven't even lieen "mentioned in despatches." Canadian boys win distinguished success at Oxford and Cambrid'^, but no fireworks are set olT in their honor, but when a fellow wins a foot lace^ the country kneels down and worships him. Intellectual sue  cess should be honored more than athletic distinction. Dut withal these pains, the ride supplied me with knowledge I never possessed before. I saw a round up of huiidreds of cattle and became acquainted with the easy way experienced ranchers have of picking out good beef steers from a big herd without even getting out of the saddle. The trained eye detects the beefs" that are lit for shipment. The good steers arc run out and herded together in a very short time An Ontario cattle man would bo entirely lost at this work. Ho picks out the cattle by feeling them but, if he was to try that oi�t here w:th a herd of six or seven hundred ho would soon have the "tired" WheiS^I first came to this country I thought the scenery- well I thought there wasn't any scenery - but now I have begun to like the prairie and especially the rolling hills, the river banks and the Vieau-tiful river bottoms. The scenery n-round the C. Y. ranch is beautiful. I ne^vr saw such rich green slopt's, level and velvety bottoms, deep banks and well treed shores. What views artists could paint, if they got a glimpse of theee spots in the early morn as the sun rises, or at night, when the golden rays of the western sun are pouring their 'lame and fire over the prairie and down the river beds. ^ Gathcml ky CMcf Hamphrics at . Cil^iry Coiivciilion> Chief Humphries and Walker have returned from the Fire Chiefs Convention at Calgary. I'rotniuont fii-e chiefs frotn all over the West^^rii States and Western Canada wcie present and must helpful papers were read. The Herald asked Chief Humph -rios to give the impressions he received which Hhould be helpful to f.othbridgc. Mr. Humphries said a discussion took place on combination trucks ami hose wagons, that is a combined chemical ami truck or combined wagon and clieiuical, but opinion was dividoro was no pavement and long runs, like I>�thbridge. W.VTEU MAINS AND HYDRANTS. All hydrants to bc'placed under direction of fin; department. They should ijo attaclicd to mains of not less than six inches in diameter. Hjxlrants should bo placce drained into sewer, thus making, them fi-ost proof. In this discussion the question of tlio superiority of Wooden or iron piiHs was brought up. It �-as generally conceded that wiicre the soil consists of a heiv.v clay, as in Lethbridge, that wooden pipe made of staves, the mat 'rial being flawless, is superior lo iron I�i|>c, the idea being this pi|x> l>e-conios watersoaked. and being hermetically sealed b.v the heavy soil, all air is thus kept from it, ami thus it has been known to be in i>erfect .state of preservation in some of tlio obler cities of the United Stat s lOO years after it was put down. In the case of light, gravelly .soils, iron pipe is liest as the air penetrates this kind of soil and causes rot in wooden pipes from the outer side. Woo�len pipes not tivnted with tar on the outside are supposed to be superior to those treated as it al-lou-s the water to soak thoroughly through the wood from the pressure on the inside. ARE THE SMALLER TOWNS TAKING THE INTEREST IN VOLUNTEER DEP.UtTMENTS WHICH THEV SHOULD. On this question there was no doubt that such was not the case, but it was the consensus of opin,;on that the best way to handle the department for the larger towns and smaller cities was the one now in vogue in the city of Lethbridge that is to pa.v the men so much ouarter-iy, a much better plan than so much per call. It was also recommended that for the larger towns a chief of department should Ix? retained permanently, paid a fixed salary and lie also made building inspector ns well, thus becoming con\'ersant with the construction of each building as it is erected In hi.s city. The of alarm bo.xes was also highly lo-coniinended, thus reducing the in -siirance rates in one year sufflcieutly to pay for same. SHOULD FIRE ENGINE OR HOSE HAOON PROCEED!

Thfe Gentleman With Ready Money Can Save in Many Ways. More than one business fallacy was shorn of Its acceptance when the Semi-ready tailoring proved Miat the ready-for-fltting was an advance on the old customHtailor method of selling from the cloth. Tiie cash idea was one factor, too. You can buy Semi-ready suits for $15.00 equal to walt-to-onler suits nt �a5.00 because of other reasons, but the cash system helpa aoino. The gentleman who aeara a Seml-renily suit or overcoat paid cash for it.' He gath -erod one of the coupons of wisdom, tor he retained to himself and hi.s own uses much good money. The^ Semi-Ready Wardrobe for ihis district is presided over by A. Southard. Hose vngon ala-ays first, because the smoke from the engine would have a tendency to blind the driver of the hose wagon; secondly, the hose wagon being lighter will arrive more quickly than the engine and can be attached to hydrant and' the hydrant pressure usee on c x-terior of building with a connection for hose at each flat, said stnndpipc to run along side of fire escape so that men could nuike hose connections with same from escape balconies. 1 0 looinetl new house, 3 lots, Fonl street................................... ............2000 2 ^ (5 roomed house bam fttc. 3 lots, Ford street............................................$2700 % 12 rooinetl house, barn, etc, 4 lots, Ford street.................................... �.   .14000 [ 7 roouieil house, barn, etc, 3 lots, Fonl street...................................$3000 I Double house nnd lot,Retlpath street..................................................$2500 ^ \ 6 roomed brick house, 2 lots, Redpath street........................................   $2000 ^ Brick house, shack and 3 lots, Redpath West..........................................$2500 ^ 10 roomed frame house, 2 lots, Bompas street........................................$2800 6 roomed new brick house. 2 lots, Bompas street........................................$3500 J U roomed new frame house, 2 lots, Bompas street.......................................$1700 , 6 roomed frame house, 4 lots, Bompas street................................;..........$1600 | I 4 roomed house, Argyle avenue....................................................,... .$1100 I 6 rooinetl frame house 2| lots, Argyle avenue...........................................$2100 \ I 6 roomed new frame house, 10 lots, Bartlett street...................................... $2500 i * 5 roometl brick house. 2 lots, Courtland st.............................................. $1100 ^ 7 roomeil brick house, 4 lots, Round st.................................................$3000 0 roometl new frame house, 2 lots.
