Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 25, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBi^lDdlE, ALBERTA, PRIDAV. SEPTEMBER 26, I90�. Nothing Gained Without Effort No effort-no gain. Yet that does not mean tliat the greatest gain comes with the greatest effort. For instance, it requires very little effort to insist on having "Progress Brand" Clothing, and the gain is proportionately great. If, on the other hand, a man is satisfied to accept the first suit or overcoat that is banded down, and will make no effort to secure a reliable make like "Progress Brand" -he can't expect to have otlicr than shabby clothes and be a walking advertisement of his own indifference. Progress Brand*' Suits and Overcoats 1,00k what yon gain by buying 'ProgressErand': -stylish, perfect fitting garments -made of dependable goods -by expert tailors -and .sold wilh an uncondilional llicy must give salii;f;ict-ion or your mi^iiey back. The man who looks for the "Progress Brand" dealer and the "Progress Brand" label gains a great deal with very little cfT rt. The gain is not merely one of dollars and (always an important consideration) but is the greater gaiii of commanding attention and respect by being always well dressed. 18 SOLD AND GUARANTEED BY McKelvie 8i McGuire OUR LETTER BOX.

W. W.

Honest, upright, able men, who could not be elected in an.v single con stituency, would now be elected by the joint vote of ,thcir friends throughout the province, and without incurring any e\i>ense tj> secure theif election. .\nd when in parliament they cindd act according to the dictates of their own conscience without fear of displeasing party or unreasonable eleclors. That such a sxslein of ecpiitnble elections will yet prevail, I have no doubt, and f trnsi that Alberta will lead the wa.v. David C'urrie. Montreal Witness Ollice, .Sept. 17. Lethbridge. Sept. 23, l!)08 lOditor of Herald: Sir,-I_,want to speak n word with you about our acting postnnvster. We have a box with a number on it (or to it) an'l iiartics making; our family order their letters to he addressed to the number of our bo.v. Hut as there happens to be persons with sonic-thing near tho same name wilh boxes, nioro than half their letters arc carried miles away, and the jiarties fail to have honesty to return them. Now, our- postmaster has been spo-I ken to about the matter, and has j promised to reinedy it, hut he fails ^ lo do so. It seems to me thnt T.ethbridge is large ,'nough to afford better timber to make into postmasters. I'erharis our 1'.
