This travel feat 'was accomplished by Hoy Missoula, Mont., who is in tlio city for tbo Stauipedo. Vlaherty came all the way from Mis- lOllln. lo Calgary on horseback. It ooR him fourteen days to make th-e rip, which was full of exciting inci- dents and hard grinds, over rough, tony roads. In fact, it became so trenuous that on one occasion Mr. feared that he would never r-each Calgary, hut would got hope- lessly lost in the mountain fastnesses. Probably the cost of living was high last -winter. Alont householders was, and they think also that they had reason to do so. But if- the forecast of the price of certain com- monly used commodities, as given in to the Herald this morning by a well known retail is'correct, there will ;be more reason than ever to talfe 'about high costs during the coming winter. "Butter is going; to be higher than he said, "and I would advise the thrifty housewife to seriously con- sider the1 question-of packing .butter for winter use. The other day I con- tracted for a winter supply of butter, several tons of .if; at'34 cents; f.o.'b., Edmonton. and a rea- sonable profit ts' that, and you can he sure that butter is going to nit pretty close to the half dollar mark before spring. In fact I believe it go higher than that in the early spring when contracts ending tho first of March run out." Egg, Will Be High Along with butter tie housewife asks for eggs and plenty them. She Is going to pay dearly for. hen fruit this winter without a doubt. The same merchant contracted for a win- ter supply of eggs a--.few days ago. At -wholesale he is paying 32 cents per .without counting freight. At that they are.'being shipped from Minneapolis and Chicago, and Eastern Canada. The west !is raising very few more eggs this year in spite of the fact that they Reached aeroplane winter. V: ;Cheeae Too When..cheese is the food product under discussion It might.'be'well to state that it will cost about five cents per pound more than, it did last year. Last winter the wholesalers cold it for 13% cents per pound. Now they are aiking for 17 cents. That means SIR THOMAS; SHAUGHNESSY at least five cents a pourid more out 'pf th.e housekeepers' pocket when she buys a pound. And it is one of th nipat important of Canada's .product tcb. 'Although fruit has not been very dear in the west this year a lias not been cheap enough to indue many to preserve much of it for win ter-use, and the demand for canned stuff' will 'be as strong as ever. Here again the purse sirlngs will receive a sbcclr. The tomato and fruit croj 5euorally is not good in Ontario, and he a. result -pric-ss for canned good; will be higher than usual. There is one slight beam of eon' solation however in that tho apple crop in the west 'will tfe very 3ieavy and appl-es will DP, sold more cheaply thnn even in the history of 'the city. Still cno cannot live all tho time on apples, so the conclusion is that the DANGER LURKS 1NTHE COURTS HERE'S EXAMPLE OF JUDGES BE ING INFLUENCED BY PRETTY WOMAN LAWYER a determin- ed fight, Slgnoriha Teresa Labriola, professor of philosophy in the Roman University, and a distinguished lead- er of the feminist movement in Italy, has succeeded in asserting the right of women lawyers to 'plead before the courts.
