These lands are beautifully situated on the Arrow Lakes where Irrigation is not Required If you were offered a home situated on the shores of a beautiful lake or stream, amidst what is acknowledged to be the finest scenery in the world; where bear, deer, goat, grouse and trout abound; where the climate is exceptionally fine and where boating of all kinds may be enjoyed: with the Canadian Pacific boat service passing your door .twice every day winter and summer; with guaranteed returns from your land sufficient to ensure you a comfortable living, and with property increasing in value at the rate of 25 per cent per year All for or Payable in 4 Years WOULD YOU INVEST If so drop a line to M. FREEMAN, Gen'I Agent The Arrow Lake Orchards, lethhridge, llherta, Canada And you will receive full particulars .Union Bank of Canada, Lethbridge HIGH SCHOOL OBSERVER Monarch Monarch, Dec. has gathered such an impetus that there have been erected fifteen places of business and now comes competition First the restaurant was so crowd- ed and the table getting so long that the proprietor was contemplating a horseback service for the waiters, but this was obviated by another large boarding house opening for business: Another general store is built and just awaiting its stock of goods while the second hardware man is just in sight rattling his stoves, pans and horseshoes. Our dance hall is completed and the floor is so slick that a leach would have to wear rubber heels to keep his feet. We have had two dances which have been well attend- ed, some of the young folks coming from as far as Lethbridge. All were united in their expression of pleas- ure. A New Years Eve dance will be j held Dec. 31st while the second week in January will see our first masque- rade. We hope all our friends ,jattend. A general good time is an- ticipated. Our blacksmith, Jim Bia.nchard, who by the way has been in that business for the last twenty years and is expert in his line, is a fast and furious fiddler. At the last dance while playing "Turkey in the Straw" at top speed a fair dizzy dancer cast her shoe so far it took four admirers 23 minutes to discover wlio could play Prince to Cinderella. The telephone poles have been placed right into town and in another two weeks communication with all outside pojnts will be established. Visitors coming in every day, ;md express surprise at the rapid growth of Monarch and we will con- tinue to astonish for with such splen- did weather conditions Monarch will forge ahead for building opera- tions bid fair to continue all winter.

All through the term the lack of contributions has been the cause of much sorrow to the editors. Only a few energetic pupils have responded to our call, while the majority do nothing.

The three delegates from the Barr Hill district being present on the invitation of the organ- izer ror the Bov.-ville district. No other delegates from the surrounding townships were present. After read- ing the minutes of the different dis- tricts, the wording of the petition was criticised by the Barr Hill dele- gates as being evidently the work of Mr. Magrath for the pixrpose of keeping rival railroads out, and that Premier Rutherford wished to give us competition in the shape of a rival railroad so that we might ob- tain better service and cheaper rates. The -wording of the petition should be 0-hanged from "the C. P. R. and other Western Railroads" to "the C. P. R. and especially the Grand Trunk Pacific and other railroads." The meeting decided that any suggested change in the proceedings should be discussed at the next meeting which is to bs held Dec. 23th when all the delegates from the other surrounding districts should be represented, each district to send 3 delegates.
