ROUND STREET Old Safe Store J. A. R. ROME, Manager. Lethbridge Branch By Gee! that was a great dig at j Pud and the council that "Prospect-j ive Purchaser" handed out. Dad j never had any idea that his smoking j was of such'great consequence as to j change man's mind about buying Lethbridge property. That's a good j one sure. Dud is going to clip that letter paste it in his joke book j to rehearse at his next after-dinner speech. But about this smoking! business anyway, it seems to me thatf there is a law somewhere, either written or unwritten, that regulates the matter so that the aldermen can smoke while they are in committee j of the whole but not when the mayor j is in the chair. There is a certain j amount of dignity attached to the mayoralty chair when His Worship- is in it that is not there in committee when air are on the same footing and j Dad is no better than anyone else. It has therefore beeri considered the proper thing to refrain from smoking j while the mayor is in the chair but! just as goon as he gets out it is just as proper to light up. Dad's council are just an ordinary bunch ol busi- ness men who -conduct the city's business as they would their own, as far as rites and ceremonies are concerned at any rate. So those that are accustomed to doing business with a cigar in one corner of their faces do just the same when they are in council. Dad smokes once in a while and when he lights up while in the chair the bunch of uncles I have there feel-at liberty to do like- wise, and usually do. .If I may express an opinion ohi "Prospective Purchaser's scrup- j les I would say that it makes a darn j sight bigger difference to him howj the business is transacted than the J etiquette observed while transacting! it. It makes no difference to the value of Ms "prospective purchase" j whether Dad and the rest of the bunch smoke or not. DINGWALL.

I a lifelong sufferer from Chronic Constipation, and the only medicine I ever secured to do me any ical good This medicine cured roe when everything failed.

There lire some other points which the pub- lic- ciay notice when the affair is made public and I merely point out this as an instance of what is in the franchise. The company have a darn guod right tv> ask for theae things and get them ii they can, but the council have to look out for the peo- ple. It's just a case of business for all concerned. CITY AND DISTRICT Miies Winnifred Hyssop, Hyssop, 0. G-.. Nimmons and the etudents Lethbridge at the Alberta University left for oona. yesterday to resume their stu- dies. Gr. Deo. O'Grady, grain buyer for John Geddes of Calgary and Leth- bridge -was at Monarch yesterday. The crops there are splendid- TTTO elevators are being built by the Tay- lor Milling Co. and Morris Co. Today is the last day of the sale at A. Macdonald Co.'s. This sale is proving to be a success. Well, -Dad and the council have got a gas -proposition on thcdr hands again. It's a darn ticklish question and must be gone into carefully. I have not seen'the proposed franchise ithat tth'e company, are asking for, hut I hear they :re asking for a good 'deal that they are not going to get ii the people Itnow -what they are do- inf. I am told, and I think my in- formation is not more than a mile out of the that, they want to be allowed five years to bore one hole thirty-five hundred feet deep and to have a twenty-iyear franchise after that ii they get the gas. Uncle George armed himself with a copy of the Calgary franchise and company is bound to bore four holes j four thousand feet deep in four years. I That looks' more like business. This I burg does not want to give any com- pany the power to sink a hole a few feet deep and then leave it the six months allowed before going ahead again, and in the meantime try to traffic with the franchise. That is not what this little burg wants. I don't say that the men who are be- hind the concern would do such a thing, but such things have been done. And the fact that they are lo- cal men should not cut any ice with Dad and the council. They should, be dealt with exactly the same as if! 'they were strangers and on the There's nothing like asking for a lot and getting all you can whether us individuals or companies or cities. The property owners who own the b ittom of Duff's lake believe this im- plicitly and so asked the council to drain that lake off for them so that they would not be flooded out in the spring. According to my; notion, al- though I am not a lawyer, Dad's council would be exceedingly easy to do any such stunt. As long as they look after the streets so. as not to turn any water onto any property, and take care of the flow of water on the streets they are doing all that they should do. If property is bolow the street grade it.seems to me it is up to the owners to fix it up." Dad's council have got to get a move on about getting ready for the Alberta Municipalities Convention here October 8 and 9. They have a number of subjects for discussion to provide and there is not much time left for any one to get a. paper up. One of the men who is -usually call- ed upon to give papers at these con- ventions is City Engineer. Arnold. His papers are' always received well and printed in full. It has been sug- gested by one interested in the wel- fare of the convention and of the municipalities of Alberta that he be asked to prepare a paper on the fol- lowing subject: "The best method of obtaining the correct obtuse angle of difference between the proper high and low levels as applied to civic salaries when subjected to the King's regulations." I think the city en- gineer has some data on this and could give .a lucid elaboration of the best method. 1HEMOLSONSBANK j Established 1855 Capital (Paid Up) Reserve Fund HEAD OFFICE MONTREAL 68 BRANCHES IN CANADA U.S. Exchange Bought and Sold at Lowest Rates Accounts of All Ivinds Carried upon Favorable Terms SAVINGS DEPARTMENT Deposits of SI and upwards received.

To the Editor of the Herald: Dear correspondent "A Prospective Investor" evidently is a crank of deepest dye! Because the city fathers enjoy a .smoke over their deliberations he '-writes an indignant to the preee arid is extravagant enough to hint .that if this sort of thing continues it will prevent him from becoming an investor in the city. Merciful heavens! Where does he come from? Did he expect to see the "presiding officer" sitting in state- with a gold chain round his neck, a darned great mace in .front of him, and bearing himself with the pomp- ous dignity of a judge High Court? If he did he was disappoint- ed. He only saw plain Bill Hender- he was smoking a cigar- and the other aldermen more shocking! This awful state of affairs so upsets our friend the Stranger that he rushes into print to ask whether hope" to be a ratepayer of this city. He wants to 'know at an 'early date' from which it is to be inferred that the momentous decision as to whether he. becomes a ratepayer rests upon whether the council quit smoking of no. My advice to- Mr. Stranger is not to. try to interfere with the priv- ileges of the a tough bunch and they do dislike being told what they ought to do. He should seek an investment in a town the. council of. which is run by cranks HARVEST TIME Should be a season of plentiful money for many of our people, and much of this ehould find its way in- to the Bank. We wish to remind all of the fa- cilities of the BANli OF for conducting the hanking business of farmers and town and city people. Surplus money should be deposited in our Savings Department where it will earn in- terest and where it will be SAFE intil required for use. Small or large amounts may be deposited- or withdrawn at any time. INCORPORATED 1865 LETHBRiDGE BRANCH F. W. McEachern Manager like who don't smoke. Faithfully yours, One of The Boys.
