OUR LETTER BOX WORK FOR BUILD- ING INSPECTOR V Lethbridge, Sept..8, 1908 Editor Lethbriclgo Herald: would ask for space la your valuable paper to air a, common grie- mnoe which every citizen of: our thriv in j city has, and that is in regard to our building inspector. Our city fa- thers undertook to make and did pass some bylaws regarding buildings within a certain limit, and did so, ami the residents of the city are sat- isfied that we should have the busi- j ness part of the city built up with good substantial buildings, both in regard to strength and fire defence. Now, our Building Inspector must be blind to the fact that a building is being erected, if you can call such a structure a -building, within two bleaks of his office, that is not being built according to the building and j tire bylaws. Mr. Editor, don't you think that it is .tame for the people to sit up and take notice. This bylaw has been broken before, but that is no reason why wo should allow it to be broken again. "Our building inspector is be- ing paid for looking after our interest our city fathers. Yours truly. Citizen. Daily Herald Market Place (live uytbing to or 10 rent place Hit this coluni.

There are good stock yards here' and running- water from the town waterworks. In the Maple Creek district the C. P. R. planted thousands of trees to grow "hedses to protect the cuts from the drifting snow. These trees are all doing well.. A number of farmers are also growing trees successfully and these trees get no water more than the natural rainfall. There is already a grain loading platform, but an elevator is expected to be built -this- iall. Last night the contract was award editor the erection of a three-roomed addition, to the Maple Creek Public School. There are three steam plows in the Maple Creek -district this' year. They have been here for a couple of years. Only one has been operating this year but many people have been breaking with horses. The cutting is all done and most of the farmers are threshing from the stock. Threshing began on Aug. 23.
