Tho mines are ojK-ialed by tho Alberta Railway and irrigation Compuny, which is u wealthy English concern that came into this country some years ago, uad went uu developing not ouly coal mining, but railroading and irrigation. Messrs. and Ma-graih uru iho olllccrs in charge of liils largo concern. They tell you "tho supply of Lethbridgo coal will bo ample for a long lime to come, and thut the company's railway system take this coat out iu the interest of the public; the company persevered in building up this railway system until it came to bo recognised by tho other great railways of the West. No tloubt could exist for a mom  ent in tho mind of any visitor who saw lethbrldgo with keen vision but that it will very soon be one of the foremost manufacturing centres of our great West. The presence of coal ami accessibility ot raw material makes manufacturing enterprises suro of success. The attitude of the Hoard of Trade hero toward manufacturers who are inclined to locate ut, lethbridge, is of a most kindly and co-operative nature. They will bo lenient in the matter of taxation and generous in regard to water and light. In fact, there is a grant opening hero right now, for manufacturers of every kind of material. Hitch conditions will not long remain at lethbridge. Every day sees new comers eager to lako root in the thriving place, it will be no tine before natural gas is developed he. j. Summed up. here are Lethhridgo's advantages: Low prlco coal and plenty of it, close probability of operative natural gas; tho cattle pro -ducts indigenous to a cattle country raw material for the manufacture of wood products (easily brought here from British Columbia ) opportunities, just at prosent, for a woolen mill, tannery, a shoo factory, and a packing house. One might add "good hoarding house facilities. A furniture factory would do great business at lethbridgo. Why? Re eauso such a factory is noeded horo and bocauso fuel is cheap here and Vancouver is tho nearest place where furniture is manufactured for the lethbridgo prairie section. Freight is high, tho lethbridge manufacturer would have a largo percentage in his favor, for he can bring In coast luin-Iwr, cedar-tho best In the world-oak, mahogany, rosewood and other woods; and freight on raw material is not high, lethbridgo, asido from mining and manufacturing, lies In the heart of a well Irrigated wheat belt, tlrent is it for Winter Wheal. More than two-thirds of the cullce wheat crop tor' 1905 aas grown within ninety miles, of Lethbridge-per official report. Sugar beets are raised In this tils irlct in vast quantities. Raymond's sugar factory ahsorl.s tho great heel, crops of the region. There are tw > well-kept Indian reservations near tho city; there arc handsome hou*�s and many banks. Financially, leth -bridge is strong. Tho Hudson's Buy Company is putting up a line, new. and commodious store. Tho city's prosperity is so apparent that ho who runu may read. And now to lighter things: The Chinook Club of Lethbridgo, opened its doors- and uncommonly handsome doors they were-to ladles, for the first time in the club's history, when the women journalists invadcnod? "Fran-coiso" Miss Hurry, of Montreal, gifted and lovely woman, brilliant ami sparkling and sincere nnd kind!spoke to us on tho part of proud Quebec. Old France! Ami every woman . of tho I'ress Club felt honored iu having her for their vice-president. Then came Miss Wallace, ".loan," of tho Halifax Mail, u charming and cultured woman, who spoke feelingly of her "kingdom by the sea." One felt in that moment the wonder of Canada! Agnes Deans Cameron, star speaker, and most charming ami '.en-dor of women, from Victoria, It. '.. linked hands, us it were, with 'Fran coiso,' of Quebec, who again reached friendly fingers toward "Joan." of Halifax. Tho Pacific to the Atlantic, greeting! And the great uniter of all. the Canadian Pacific Railway! "Oft In the stilly night." sang the soft voices of lethbrldge's muslml girls, nnd one fell a-ound lite, Sad memories bring tho light Of othor days around nv\" "Tho light of other days;" Jlow ii made sunrise In that crowded room ut tho Chinook Club ut Lulhbrldgol Tho kind girls, who wore singing so softly, so genii*, so-plorcingly, little know how ono Irish heart was waking to old, and exquisite, and childish memories; how it vus aching for Iho "Touch of a vanished hand And Iho sound of a voice still."' that Then camo a violin solo, and a girl's voice singing Novin's lovely "Night of a Thousand Stars"-and "Killarney," and "I'll Sing Thns; Hongs of Araqy." What an ovenin of culture und music it was to hungry travellers! I see it as I write; tho pretty rooms, the piano, the brilliant woman who was playing so softly yet brilliantly, the cluster of girls about her; tho clubmen, our hosts, everywhere, making us wel  come; tho long bright supper-room where tho dainties were-tho whole big, warm welcome!, Dour lethbridgo Dour and kind and cultured men and women with tho big hearts, the warm welcome! There are i o words-......     Long after midnight a wide circle formed at foot of tho departing train. All tho club turned out for that touching moonlight furewell. We held hands and sang collegesnngs old ballads coon lilts-everything. "Old Land Syne," with crossed hands, feelingly, "Jolly Good ' Fol  lows." heartily-and tho "Maple Leaf" (Ood love it!) with all the vim that was in us. Then it was "Oood-byo Lethbrldgo!:' "going East," sighed an Ontario girl- And the lights of Tethhridge faded Get � S cent box of Lax-ots at our store please. We think they are groat.
