Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 17, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta Tnc^sday, Dccembcf 17,1012 MOKANE MAN SIZING UP POSSIBILITIES OF OLD MAN RIVER AT MACLEOD Maclcod, Dec. 16.-City F-nginect AlUiiiin is very much deliKlilcil with tlic progress itiurtc on U>o filtration plant. So tar Imvc tlicy advanceil that with continued tine weather ho cxpcct.s to have tlie first unit ot the machinery erected, nnd thus he alile to have all in place [or the early flow of rtvater in the spring. It is a groat satisfaction to the water and light consumers that since the installation, both these utilities have given an almost uninterrupted service. The daily, addition of new consumers keeps the crews husy making the various connections, but with tho ' new steel mains, the pumping is reduced to half, making a great saving on tho machinery and me;i. The fire brigade had a run to the C.P.R. yards, and saved the company a fine box car. Notice has been received fronv the Gas Co. of a reduction in the price of their products for the winter months. Miss Hall, whQ is now in the Moy-er Bros.' Hospital, Rochester, Minn., was successfully operated on, and hopes arc entertained of her recovery nnrt early return home. A visitor last week from Melford, Sask., was delighted to enjoy what Le termed summer weather, as in his own home the thermometer had not riscn-above 22 degrees below zero for over a month. The Masquerade Ball givca by the ;Crickct Club on Friday night, was a success in every way. The hall was crowded, the costumes good, the music ail that could be desired, while the floor suited those who tripped tho light fantastic. Tea was served hy the Purity Bakery in a style that brought them many flattering remarks. All churches are busy preparing for 'Christmas.- Special music is being studied.by all the choirs,' so that tha Christmas music will far exceed all ))rcvious records in Maclcod churches. A- W- Kerr, of Spokane, was a visitor in Maclcod last week. Ho is interested in many large undertakings in Montana and Washington  also in South-east Kootenay. He is a largo shareliolder in one of the largest syndicates in real estate, and was look-Sng at the river with a view to harnessing it for motive power. His idea is to have all the electric light and power required in Southern Alberta distributed from one point, thus re-r elucing the cost to the consumer v al-'so giving to every farmer necessary light and power tor his farm. It is OS he expressed himself, a large order, but one that can a^id will be carried into successful etiect. Hei expects to visit Macleod again in a few weeks, and also in the spring, so that he can. see for himself the highest and lowest water mark on the river, and the power going to waste for want of using.
