Council  itself would also be more- |
alert, for  after  all  the attitude o
any  Council  is  but a reflection of
;the ra-tepayers themselves.
i     Mr. Embree says that  the Coun-
| ciilors  are  not lacking in Lusiness
[anility,   pointing  cut  that each ol
'them has  been  conspicuously successful in his cwn affairs.
That, no  c'< ubt is true, but tl e
general  complaint is, not that the
Coi'i'.iiiio.s are without ability, but
ih; t they do not apply to j>ubli_
taffairs enough of that ability which
has made them so successful in
! their own, and which the public
lhas a right to expect from them. I
I rather  think   that  Mr. Embree  is
not  that  sort   of man who   would
build,    lencc,    ditch,    operate    hi:
thresher or  anything   else, withou
first'a. certiiining the rot of this 01
tbat,   or what    his   operating   e:<
penses are likely to be.
Why not, then, apply such  principles to municipal affairs?
But instead we are   lo'd   (once a
year) that . lump sum  of so many
thousands has been spent, on roads
for   instance,   but   no   details  art
j available  to   show  what any   par  !
j ticular   piece   of   work   has   cost
I Councillors come before us to give
I an   ;.<count  of their stewardship,
' but seem to know little of what has
occuned, outside their own wards.
It seems  absurd  that a  ratepayer
seeking information sliould have to
give notice to the Vunicipal Clerk,
and then wait till he gets it.
Personally,   I   think    ti at   the
ward system is responsible for a lot
of our councillors'   . hortco__ings.
A man elected for any  waid is apt
to imagine that bis duty begins and
ends with that particular ward, and
only loo often  his chief aim is to
grind his own particular axe.

other man who built on the sands was
uttered before thc "house with modern
Improvements" hnd made Its appear
ance or modern sniiltniy science hnd
been evolved. A lock foundation is UU
Impeachable for stability, but It may
be very hnd when It eomes lo n matter
of drainage, whether tt be for the dls
posnl nf sewage or of surface or ground
Wnter. A cellar excavated lu the rock
Is usually ii \Vct cellnr. because the water leeches through the crevices and
_enms in the rock, and It Is bolh dilfl
cult and expensive to trench and drain
properly ubout the walls of a building
In a medium so hnvd to excavate. To
be sure, if the rock drops away ipaick-
ly on n sharp grade this difficulty may
be nl together n minor one. A good
gravel soil Is one of the best to build
upon In respect both to drainage and
to the stability of the house, und coui-
Vnct sand, If not subject to the notion
of running wnter. Is n moat excellent
foundation and a thoroughly good medium.

If you average the cost price of J-M Asbestos Roofing over
the period of years it is in service, you will see that "J-M" is
cheaper to use than any other prepared roofing. Being made of
A8be?!os, an indestructible mineral, it is permanently durable,
and as it does not require any coating or painting, its first cost is
the only cost.    Easily applied by anyone.
Asbestoside is an Asbestos Sheathing and is the most economical, durable and easily applied siding known.
