of dollars most of them Newmarket Thats up north American are spent by tourists of Toronto somewhere but I dont in towns and summer resorts Every year there is an unending stream of thousands of automo biles travelling up Yonge St Most tourists stop off in the small towns and stock up with provisions on their way north Many of them like to wander through small town stores and pick up articles they cant find at home like china woollen goods unusual gift articles bathing suits fishing tackle and sports wear Newmarket has a disadvan tage in being several hundred yards east of the most beaten track St highway Sum mer holiday traffic passes on Us way up the west side of the lake and it is probable that a large percentage of them never notice this town nestling in a valley away from the

bylaw Is designed to protect the man who buys a lot for a house and ensures that the property can be identified 100 years from now municipalities In York county have similar bylaws and St is believed that King completes the building lot policy for the county If a person buys an area of land the townships asks that he have a licenced surveyor survey the land and that it be registered at the land office in Newmarket It gives the person who buys land and builds a house proper title for a mortgage In the past some properties in King have been defined from a clone to a tree and after the the may been used for building and the tree cut down The resulting over property defini tion is obvious It also protects the man who buys and builds no matter what the size or shape of his property is It is known that in the past several persons have bought lots on blueprints in Toronto and af ter they have bought them dis cover that they are half under water Under the provisions of the by law before the council will al low persons to build subdivisions It must know about such things as proper seepage for septic condition of roads proxim ity of schools and services As Reeve Elton Armstrong said Is
