On Saturday afternoon "they held an ice cream social for the bene- fit of a young man to help in sending him to a sanitarium. They also have a plan for each member to take ten cents and invest it in some way and the profits to. go" to the mission fund of the church. A social is plaujj, ed at the end .of this month for hear- ing the result of rbe investments. The investments have "been of various kinds. One started out, by selling some embroidery investing the profits in cloth for shirts, then selling the shirts to her-husband, then reinvest- again. Another started with rhubarb. Another started with as- paragys while another started with thirteen eggs. At the social there will no doubt be some interesting: sto j ries told about the investments.

Board of Trade Should4 Act There as a daily maai -which, arrives on the east bound train at 1.08 a-ir. and occasionally the westbound train leaves off mail if the trains happen, to meet here. There is no mail on Sun-day morning. Saturday's mail from Lethbridge does not" reach Coal- dale till Monday morning.- The mail from Coaldale to Leth- bridge goes on east and is brought back the same morning or tjhe fol- lowing morning on the westbound-, i night train to Lethbridge. If the eastbound train is late there is not time for the mail clerk to sort the mail and send the Lethbridge mail back on the westbound train. Yet Lethbridge is only about ten miles from Coaldale and it .thus takes ab- out "a day to send a letter that dis- tance. Lethb'ridge Board of Trade should interest themselves in getting the C. P. R. to have the night trains stop at Coaldale when flagged. At pres- ent Coaldale citizens can go .to Leth- bridge only on the afternoon trains but have only forty-five minutes in Lethbridge, unless they stay over till next day, which, would mean twenty- i four hoiirs and, fifty-five minutes and many are too busy to' stay so long. away. j Poor-Mail Service i There is also need" for still further improvement in the mail service. The Herald representative was shown a letter that took five days in going from Calgary to Coaldale. A letter from Tabcr took four days in reach- ing Coaldale, a distance of twenty miles. These ddj- trains should carry mails. There is already too much mail for clerks on the night j trains, who arc rushed so much that they cannot help making an occasion- j al mistake. Putting inail clerks on the day trains would' divide the work making it easier and would vastly' increase the amount of post office iriess done.

The Old Glory Well (From the Herald's Travelling Correspondent) Bow Island, Aug. Herald'.? travelling correspondent today visit- ed "Old Glory" gas well. There is not much to see. Of course as a person descends the hill into the val- ley there is a fine view of the wind- ing, shining river and the valley be- yond. At the foot of the hill is the residence of the two pump men ,who keep the pump going night and day to pump the ,water from the river, j four miles to the tank at Bow Island station. There is a telephone line between the station and the pump house. .Every train that, passes stops and waters there, even to the Soo- Spokane flyer, so the pump is kept busy for the traffic on. this line is now heavy and trains are frequent. The pump is operated by a Fair- bank Morris gas or gasoline 25 h.p. engine. Natural gas from the Old Glory well is now used to run the engine, and for fuel and light in the pump house and residence. Only an ordinary inch pipe line conveys the gas from the well to the pump house. Three regulators re- duce the pressure. It is 800 pounds at the jwell -which is reduced to 450 pounds and again reduced to 130 pounds and again is reduced to two pounds, which is sufficient to run the engine and furnish fuel for tho stoves and light for the lamps. You can distinctly heat tlie gas whistling near the well and at the regulators, and at one of the regulators you can smell the escaping gas quite strong. Yet there are no notices up for pass- ers by to beware of lighting matches or lighting their pipes, and the trail to the ferry-'passes quite close to the gas well. Of course some have heard of the arrest and nine days' confine- ment of the man who carelessly lighted a match a few weeks ago and set fire to the escaping gas, and such no doubt be cautious. .But at Cleverville a farmer lost his long whiskers by, innocently lighting his OF CANADA tat art IMMM totts Eictri You have no guarantee that you will always be able to do your present work, or make your present income.
