Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 3, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta "it AGE sra SATURDAY, FEBfty.ABt^i^iagl.? OUR MiaL BAG FROM THE _ F^MOST BOOMmO-NOBLEFORD HAS MANY IMPROVEMEm^^^ BUSINESS HAS BEEN GOOD AT FOREIST (From Ou" Own CGiTr-qonnHonti Foremost. Jan. 31-It almost seems kb tiiQugh Jack Frost was making a great effort to change the local expression of greeting. Hitherto it has been "Well, this is certainly some nice winter, eh!" but if the present cold snap continues there mU be a different storj- to tell. The latter part of last week was marked by Bplendid weather and the cbuntry trade flocked to the town accordingly- eo much so indeed that it almost made a record for winter weatlier but the cold spall which crept down upon the district Sunday has changed the tale slightly. The mercury dropped steadily until it registered 15 degrees at night fall and the town street-traffic responded by becoming con-epicuous by its absence. Even the church services suffered and the gathering was very small in numbers for pepple fear the cold weather. Monday  morning saw the mercury registering 27 below and by Tuesday morning U had sunk to the 34 below mark. It U little wonder that a ellence pervades the town and that such as do walk the streets huddle down within their winter garments and spend* no time In the customary Btreet-comer go�sip. The building activities which the mild weather of last week started so merrily have been partially stopped, except in such cases &8 where the work Is of the inside variety. The elevators, although occasionally called upon to take in grain are enjoying a rest and are spending their spare time in loading sach cars as are placed for them. In the matter of cars we feel that since the new year we have been treated with fair consideration but we grimly trust that the service will continue to be good lor this Is an excellent opportunity lor the elevators to prepare for the ruBh that, will follow hard on the heels Of. the breaK-ujp which is coming. Taking all things Into consideration the hauling of grain even now would be a popular occupation If it were not lor the cold spell. The roads are in excellent shape lor sledding once the trail is broken but woe to that team and driver that has to do the breaking lor steel runners hang and drag where thp trail is not hard-packed. The i country district north of town has an ad-rantaee over that south of town because of the fact that the southern sention has received half as much snow.kgalnas the nqrthem one. This , means a Tot" to'the larmer in niany wnvs but no one up north is grumb-linrr over the unfair distribution for tbov are satisfied with seeing stubble avri breakini? well coated with the m'^'sture producer. ^^ow that the month of January is pr-'Tif-ally over and the accounts are cbmrlet^d most of the merchants In to^-n are well pleased with the result of the month's business. Some report three times as much business as a year ago; another will assure you that January's trade over-tonoed the December trade by quite a little-and 35 cents for aduUg and 25 cents lor children (and it all goes to an exceedingly worthy and necessary cause.) So, who will support the ladies? Social activity amongst the kiddies of the town still _ runs high but the frosty air drives" them indoors and last week's event was the invitation party held by Master B. Hunt on Saturday evening. The gathering was of a goodly size and yet order prevailed and interfered not with, the fun. Such little gatherings are a credit to the life of the town and the youngsters are surely worthy of some social entertainment, A Board of Trade Meeting was held on Saturday evening last and a very creditable turnout resulted. Matters of Importance and  interest to the town and surrounding country were discussed and plans were formulated for a larger and more efficient Foremost. Hurrah! our local council chamber has at last appeared above the level of the ground and the ground flooring has been laid.
