F, Htm.JMMMM MM The fire hrigade got a run this ternpon. One of" the suwll boys' the Public School while playing with' matches in IOUK dry grass, started the grass burning. The wind took hold of the bhte and started it towards the school -building. U'hc alarm was sounded and the brigade turned out but the fire was practically out fore they arrived, the pupils having POOR BUSINESS Buainesc principles do not seem to be understood by some business con- Just at present work on manj buildings ia this city is at a stand still thro ugh "the failure of an out .side concern to supply pressed brick which was ordered long ago, Thu firm regularly solicits orders nere and promises prompt delivery, but, whil it has secured the orders, it has been mighty slow in liUing them. It is entirely to blame for the present state of the building trade here and "it is not likely it will ever get an- other order in this city, unless its name is attached, to an. agreement, 'with a clause providing for a'heavy, penalty, if the terms are not met. This habit of taking orders and pro- mising to fill them in a certain time, when it is known that the promise cannot be carried out, is too com- mon and it is about time the con- cerns guilty of the practice were taught a lesson.

HELP THE TRANSPORTATION COMPANIES It it- perhaps the case that at no tinve transportation facilities in Western Canada gone ahead of re- quirements. It is a, safe guess tha. railroad capital .does not seek to run its steel into- lands that are not clea ly safe dividend payers. In some cas es they have drawn light traffic bu the cost of construction has been partly borne by the governments for the purpose of promoting myfionai development. It is certainly the case too that present lines of jail- way in the West fail to meet every wish and requirement of the wheat grower who is rushing his' output to market at the same time that every other wheat grower is doing the same- thing. While the wheat grower appears fa sufferer it just happens that the companies providing transportation service are in a position of just as serious inconvenience. It is said that this year the cattle shipments will be nearly all over before the moving of the wheat is on, which rineher Creek, Sfpt. Bail- lie, of Toronto, is here on a visit to his son, 0. E.

For some time past Mrs. Mostad has been matron in charge and superintendent of a hospital in town where her as- iduous attention and kindly man- ler endeared her to all the patients 'he- deceased lady was of a very like- ble disposition and leaves many riends to mourn her loss. The cause of death was typhoid fever. The shortage of cars is causing some anxiety and it is to be hoped that tint situation will be relieved BOOH.
