" ' HELD AT MAGRATH Magrath /Alberta, December .4. - In. appreciation of his past' seven years as superintendent of the Latter Day Saints' Sunday school, the teachers of that organization gave Mr. Ernest Bcnnion a hapny surprise social last Thursday evening at the licninon residence.

A handsome'token of remembrance was pre-, sentcd, and Mr. Bennion in a few well chosen words voiced his regrets at severing his connections with- his coworkers and thanked them for their concrete demonstration of their apr prcciation for his past labors.

McLEOD KILLED North Sydney, N.S"., Dec. 5-A telegram this evening from the militia department to relatives here announced that Lieut.-Col. Harvey G. Mc-Leod,-Oth battery, 2nd artillery brigade, was accidentally killed at the front.'. � : ; . , ," - ,: Wearing a considerable smile, and loaded up with parcels of merchandise bought in the Lethbrtdge stores, a farmer stepped into the board of trade .rooms on Saturday. "I have come In to sec if I could pay off these notes thai, are due in February and May after I ship my last two or three cars of wheat"- that was how he opened his talk. "These four cows I got a year ago hare each got a calf, and we are shipping in our milk and getting a good price for it. I didn't dream when I got these cows a year ago, that there was so much to be made out of livestock." "This is how it happened. My wife and yl were resting in at the Leth-bridge Hotel one day last winter, when my wife happened to hear two farmers talking about a plan that the Lethbridge ' board of trade had for helping1 men who were too hard-up to get assistance from the hanks, to get cows or sheep or hogs. She said to me, 'Do you think there would be any chance, Hiram, for us to get one or two Cows ?' ,1 said, 'I don't see how we could have the face to ask, for we couldn't pay a cent of a first payment.' Well, the wife kept on after me till at last T said 1 would step "over and see. So, after a little talk with Mr. Marnoch about how it was done, . I put in an application, and sure enough after a few days I got a letter saying 1 could go ahead and buy four cows. Each cow has had" a calf, ' so I have eight head wheie^l started in with four." ' "Now T have 53* bushels of wheat to the acre for my crap and I want to tell you I'm- fcelin1 pretty good. .These 'four cows showed me what we 'could do with our little hay and pasture and stubble and straw heaps, and "I have put all my spare grain money into more young stock; and I '.jiayev-all told| 42 head of cows and calves and voting cattle. "This grain farming is all right in a year like 1915, and I got a fair crop'bff my* summerfallow in 1914; but I know' now that, mv land can't stand too many 53 bushel crops without getting manure. I am not going to trust my luck any more to all-grain farming. Milk'cows will bring us in, something everv weeK even in the dryest times ; and what is more, please the Lord, we'll have some irrigation water and alfalfa pietty soon. "I just want you to tell your Lethbridge business men who helped us out when we were in low water, that we stand' by -Lethbridge- now ; we know the place -where we are treated good. We liked .Iowa all right, hut Lethbridge beats" it." HOUSE LIKELY TO PHONE 1224 Corp. A.,D. Lafferty, 13th C. M. R. Medicine-Hat,'spent- the week end with his parents, Dr. and Mrs, Lafferty. .'
