It is said that in the Okotoks mu- nicipal elections every voter in the town except two voted. That is a splendid record, especially so in view protected and not suffer loss of busi- ness through -work going to an office not advised as to who the men are -who are really behind the new rail- way company which proposed to build from Pilot Bay, B. C., to Hartney, I S Man., there is every reason to believe that there is some bis railway con- cern behind the scheme. It has been known for some time that the C.P. intends connecting up and build- ing a direct line from Winnipeg to er the fact that there was no mavor- contest. Uebts i J Geneva, "DH 111., YOU Dec. KID" you Vancouver by the shortest possible route which is through Weyburn and Lethbridge. That the aew line is one to be built to compete with this short line of the C.P.R. is a reason- able supposition. The actions of the the C.N. R. the CT.T.P., and this "new com- pany all demonstrate the reality of j claim made that Lethbridge will be a great railway centre. At the gate- way to the mountainous regions of British Columbia, aiwkalso at the point of easiest access from Mon- tana, besides being on'a direct line between Vancouver and Winnipeg, this city must-necessarily be the point for which as well as in- ternational railways will head. CARELESSNESS WITH POISONS The great number of poisoning ac- cidents due to taking poisons by mis- take, calls for some attention that should result in legislation. People go to the medicine chest or the pan- try or the closet to get a bottle con- taining some medicine. Without tak- ing care to see whether or not they have the right bottle, they take a dose. In too many cases a mistake has been made and some deadly pois- on is swallowed. The. laws-compelling easily distil kid the stale ditty of the 5-cent theatres and the vaudeville houses, was hashed into a sacred anthem hers with disastrous results to a prayer meeting at one of. the churches. The .pastor and the deacons are searching for the irreverent member of the choir who annexed the rlirsse guished labels on bottles arc good, ctical but do not cover the cases mention- ed. It has been suggested that some distinctive shape of bottles be used exclusively for poisons. If a law were passed making it compulsory to use, say, triangular shaped bottles for poisons and forbidding their use except with" original the would be obviated to "a .very large extent. As long as fools exist it is the duty of their wiser fellow citizens to legislate for their prot-ection. r: to the hymn with a lead pencil, much indignation they asserted list he is a fit subject 'for a muscular kind. The quotation made its fatal en- trance into -the-prayer meeting cuing a solo that was rendered by a so- prano .during the hush which folliw- ed a solemn exhortation by the preacher. The service had been fer- vent. The pastor had preached a stirring little sermon and ten or twelve of the laymen had given testimony. From the sober IOOKS ot several young men. and women on the back benches it looked as if c were soon to be gathered in. the spell and spirit of the i were broken by the words of the fri- volous song. The pastor had closed his eiotdlvim and had announced the solo. young woman lifted her voice in soue- She put so much fervor into the mu- sic itself that she followed the blindly and sang the anthem .exactly as it had been revised with sv J. J. HILL SPEAKS OF RAILROAD LABOR MATTERS Portland, Ore., Dec. discuss- ing general railroad conditions of the country yesterday, James J. Hill of Great Northern, contended that with the advance in cost of all ma- terials required for construction and maintenance of railroads, the large railway systems of the country are having trouble to make ends meet. "Engineers and said Mr. Hill, when asked' concerning the agitation in the 'East for a general strike among railway employees, "are among the best paid laborers in the country and their wages have been increased more in the last few years than any other class of workmen. For that reason I think the possibil- ities of a general strike among these men is altogether remote .and in fact not considered seriously by the men 'themselves. The recent strike by the switchmen employed on thev Nor- thern railroads was more 'the effect of rivalry between the two tions of these employees -than, any other cause. The organization which ordered the walkout hoped to. be successful and in that .way attract .to its membership all switchmen em- ployed on the other systems; who are affiliated with the Order of Trainmen to to As a result' the strike exists 'in. name onlv." i A NET PROFIT OF' PER ACRE.
