It will be no time before natural gas ia developed hei-j. ^uinmcd up, here are, l^thtoridgo's advaiitagoa: liow price coal and plenty "of it, ctoao probability of op> erative:.rnatural gas; the cattle pro  ducts indigenous to a cattle country raw material (or the manafacture of wood products (easily brought here from British Columbia ) opportunities. Just at present, for a woolen mill, tannery, a shoe factory, and a packing house. One might odd'-good boarding house facilities. A furniture factory yoiild dogreat business at Lethbridge. Why? Be cause such a factory is needed here and. because fuel is cheap her* ard Vancouver Is tho nearest plaee where fumitiire is manufactured for the .Lethbridge prairie section.

Mure than two-thirds uf the entinj wheat crop fur' 1905 was grown withiii ninety mil'M. of LuthbridgL-per ofllciul report. Sugar iHiets are raised in this dj.s-trict in vast ipiantities.

Financially, Lctli -bridge is strong. The Hudson's ihiy Compan.v is putting up a fine, new. and commodious store. The city's prosperity is so apparent that ... ho who runs may read. And now to lighter things: Tin; Chinook Club of I.cthbridgc, opened its doors- oml uncommonly hand-sonic doors they were-to ladies, for tho first time in the club's history, when the women journalists invad"d that ambitious Western city. It a'is a notable reception. With tho exception of the bands which met t h.rido-in Canad.i, and in her old and dear Motlior. And then ivhat hapiiened? "Fran-coiso" Miss Barry, of Montreal, giit-ed and lovely woman, brilliant and sparkling and sinccro and kind!s!>oke to us on tho part of proud Quebec. Old France! Anil every woman , of tho Press Club felt honored in having her for their vice-president. Then came Miss Walliue, "Joan," of the Halifax Mail, a cbarin:ng and cultured woman, who spoke feelingly of her "kingdom hy the sea." One felt in that moment tho wonder of Canada! Agnes Deans Cameron, star speaker, and most charming and lender 01 women, from Victoria, B. C, linked hands, os it were, with 'Fran-coisc,' of Quebec, who again reached friendly fingers toward "Joan," of Halifax. Tho Pacific to the Atlantic, greeting! And the great unitcr of all, the Canadian Pacific Railway!' "Oft in the stilly night," sang the soft voices of Lcthbridge's musical girls, and one fell a-dreaming. It was only a room somewhere, and, a big man lying on the'sofa and listening to the sweetest voice in all the world for him singing; and two little girls somewhere in dark sov-ners. Only father and mother, in tho old Irish house. Hut the echoes! tho ntcmorics! "Oft in the stilly nlRht f Ere slumlier's chains have l>ound me. Sad memories bring the light or other days around me." "The light of other days!" How it made sunrise in that crowded room at the Chinook Club at Lethbridge! Tho kind girls, who were singing so softly, so gentle, so-^plercingly, little knew how one Irish heart was waking to old, and exquisite, and childish memories; how it v as aish -ing for the "Touch of a vanished hand And the sound of a voice that is still."* Then came a violin solo, and {a girl's voice singing Ncvin's lovely "Night of a Thousand SUrs"-i^d "Killarney." and "I'll Sing Thifee Songs of Araqy." What an cveniii of culture and music it was to hungry travellers! I see it ns I write; tho pretty rooms, the piano, ^hc brilliant woman who was playing'so softly .vet brilliantly, the clustej of girls about her; the clubmen, cfnr hosts, everywhere, making us wsl * come; the long bright supper-room where the dainties were-T.the wliole big, waint welcome!, Dear Ijethbridgu Dear and kind and cultured men and women with the big hearts, the warm welcome!
