A trip around this city tod iv
would convince the most slo p'i
cal that Kich Hill is improving,
probably more that at any time
in the history of the town. Kv.-ry
where houses are being raised
and enlarged, carpenters and
painters have more than they can
do; the concrete men are working
overtime; the plumbers are put
ting in gas fixtures all over
All these things go to prove
that Rich Hill is becoming a !- -
ter place in which to live. Prop
erty values in this city have in creased
wonderfully in the last
two years and with the improve
uients now being made they will
take another upward bound.

THE DISAPPEARING HOR6E.
That which was prophesied half in
jest a few yesrs ago is now actually
coming to pass. The horse is dis
appearing from England and tha
board cf trade returns afford the
proof of it. Anyone who notices the
traffic of London will understand
that the trains, the motor omnibuses,
the motor vans, the private motors
and the taxicals have driven tht
bona off tha streets, and in all the
proyincial towns the same thing is
going on. And it is not only in the
towns that the change has taken
plare. The trams are spreading out
into the country,- serrices of motor
omnibuses cover the roads, and even
