IS.-Since our last budget appeared we almost feel that our apology for not keeping pace with other towns along the line to be somewhat out of place. Since ilwt date we have got a barber shop,, a grist mill and a consolidated school. To say nothing of the first baby to arrive in the town, a fine big blacksmith, at the home of Charles Pota. Weddings are not out of place in our district either. Jim Connor stepped off the train the other morning with a blushing bride on his arm. The band was not in attendance but anyway the reception given them was one the bride can surely write homo about. However, Mr. and Mrs. Connor, since it is no longer a secret, we all join in wishing you a long, happy and prosperous life and hoping it wili be spent in our district. Drillers Get Contracts As a result of an item In our last budget that a well driller could get plenty of work in this district. Mr. Vail B. Smith of Lucky Strike, has been in the district signing up some contracts. Mr. Van Over from Champion, where he recently sold his farm, has purchased section 1-7-16. six miles north-1 east of Wrentham where he is putting up about $2,000 worth of improvements. His brother-in-law Mr. Alley is also improving section 12, lying directly north of him. They both expect to move here as soon as the buildings are completed. Pick Howe recently from Blairmore, but perhaps better known around Foremost and Etzikom where he opened the first business in the town is to open a barber shop in Wrentham. Mr. Howe was in and looked over the proposition some time ago but as he has a family of five children, he would not make the move until official word was received from Edmonton that consolidation carried. So Mr. Farmer when the tonsorial artist is putting the finishing touches on a good massage can you imagine it to be a re-suit of having a consolidated school. Mrs. A. Westergreen returned from Lethbridge on Tuesday bringing with her a fine big baby. May Buy Land Mr. Pharis from Missouri was In the district a couple of (Jays this week looking over land with' a view of buying. He says it looks good to him. W. E. Sturgie, Jr., went to Taber via Lethbridge on Wednesday where he is taking Masonic degree work. Our lumberman is busy these days unloading several cars of lumber besides the local stuff which is going out continually. J. Lewis and John Holmerson have leased Mr. Westergreen's farm for six years. Mjr. Westergreen will remain on the place where he has plenty of stock to require his time. He is putting up a set of buildings on the Hudson Bay section for the renters, where they will do considerable breaking this season. The boys purchased twenty head of horses from Mr. Westergreen so they will have a good outfit to go ahead with. Will Extend Line Our section foreman tells us that he has been advised by the road master that this line will be extended at least two stations this season and connected up if the steel can possibly be secured. It is reported that little Hazel Pel-ham who has been seriously ill in the Gait hospital Js improving. Mr. Henneger tells us that he has lost comparatively few sheep this winter. Considering this to be a very hard winter on sheep we can account for this, only by the fact of Mr. Hen-neger's very efficient equipment and methods of handling sheep. He spent thousands of dollars last summer in buildingB, sheds and corrals, etc. He has about 15,000 sheep in this district and has fed about twenty car loads of hay so far this winter. The ladies of the church are entertaining the gentlemen at the home of Mr. and Mrs. B. A. Perkins on Friday evenirtg. The gentlemen are expected to return the compliment at a later date. t;.tr>7.7s;'. and ! 1."'.' and !''ll!> .Ml �s -is ui.i;:i.�P4 ii!'!',5;'7 12.S0r.,4S2 4.SHI.HHi Ui.l'.S-.Too 2.;!45.20S j Cheese .. 1 Kh'Bs..... : Uot-r, fresh jpickled .... !

There is a I very large increase in fish holdings I and a substantial increase in holdings of beef. The other commodities show I decreases as compared with the same ,' d;ite in 1017. The commissioner's ob-] serrations oa the above figures fol-I low: "I must again say that a hundred per cent, increase of egg holdings and | an almost equivalent increase of I cheese holdings over those of a year ago fail to justify prevailing prices for these commodities. As to chqeso I know that less than five per cent, of our production will serve our ordinary needs and that a large amount of the stored cheese is the property of the cheese commission, but,I cannot, nor need I. shut my eyes to the fact that fairly apart from the cheese bought by or offered to the cheese commission, there Is an enormous amount of cheese stored by private owners, and while the price to the Canadian consumer is maintained at an altitude which does not allow him to occasionally substitute this wholesome food for maat, the cheese producers are reinforcing for a demand for yet higher prices for the cheese commission." L PRESENT PRICES EGGS ARE NOT JUSTIFIED Ottawa, Feb. 20.-The cost of living Commissioner of the ministry of labor has issued his ordinary monthly statement of the quantities of food held in storage as of February 1, 1918. His figures are derived from the returns of companies holding about 99 per cent of the total cold storage space available in Canada. They include dairy products, pickled and barrelled M well as frozen meats and the hold-lags of practically all the large fish companies in Canada. The amounts of food commodities in storage on February 1, 1918 were: Butter 7,542,447 pounds; cheese 7,529,923 pounds; eggs, 1,560,039 dozen; beef, fresh and pickled 40,197,654 pounds; pork, fresh and pickled 20,917,495 pounds; bacon, ham and smoked meats 13,036,104 pounds; mutton and lamb 4,832,230 pounds; fish 16,440,734, and fowl, all varieties 3,105,535 pounds. The preceding figures cover only-goods reported as held in storage. To estimate the quantity of any such j goods available from cold storage coin- \ panies for consumption and export, j add about 10 per cent to represent | goods in transit and certain eoirtpar.i-! lively insignificant quantities unreported.  The holdings of the firms representing quantities of food commodities on hand, February 1, 1918, who also reported for February 1, 1917, show the following comparisons.

Tompkins, a local automobile mechanic, has perfected the design of his new rotary turbine gasoline aerial motor, which he has been working on for several months, and hopes soon to place the plans of his motor before the war office committee for their inspection. The rotary method used in Mr. Tompkins* motor for compressing and exploding the gases eliminates all destructive vibration (which is encountered in the motors now being used) and reduces friction to a minimum, �which, will give the motor unexcelled endurance. As well as endurance this motor displays other features of speed, economy, and it is claimed by the in-ventor that it will produce at least a horsepower per each pound and a half weight, making it far superior to the motors now in use. The invention is being financed by Lethbridge and New York capital. Mr. J Tompkins arid his promoter expect 10 ; leave in a few weeks for New York and Washington. � Kiom Our Own Corrrs'Bnrident.i Ooaldaie. Feb. 21.--The Good Times Chili gave another moat enjoyable dance on Friday pruning In the hall. The room was tastefully decorated with pennants and hearts featuring St. Valentino's day and presented a pleasing appearance. The music was pronounced to be the best this season. The hostesses were prettily gowned in evening costume and did their utmost to entertain their guests. The whole evening was the most enjoyable, of its kind hold here tills season. It is to be regretted however, that the expenses in connection with hall rent and music are so high that these affairs can only be conducted with a deficit. On the following evening Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Delnncy entertained a large number of their friends at a dance. A thoroughly good time was spent by all. Return From Trips Last week saw a number of our citizens return from trips abroad. This week sees the number augmented. Mrs. T. 1\ Brown has returned from Seattle where she has been for a month or six weeks. Mrs. Glaspey has returned from a trip in the States. Mr. and Mrs. B. S. Pawsou and family have returned from three months' visit in Long Beach, Cal. Mr. and Mrs. 11. \V. Daine have returned from an extended visit to Chicago,"1 Minneapolis and other points. Miss R. Armstrong and K. McPhee, of Lethbridge, were guests of Miss Hunt on Saturday. Miss Olive Norman and Master Billy Norman, formerly of Coleman, but now of Lethbridge are spending the* week at the parsonage. Mrs. (Rev.) Pike of Iron Springs, is spending the week with Mrs. (Rev.) Fawcett. Miss Hunt spent the week-end in Lethbridge. Teacher*' At Home A very' pleasant afternoon was spent last.Friday at the school, wher. the pupils and teachers were "at home" to the parents and friends of the district. A goodly number were present. A short program was rendered in the auditorium, refreshments were served iii the domestic science room, and ari altogether good time spent by all. The proposal was made by the pupils in the school parliament that In view of tho noon hour being longer than necessary, and the good advantage to which a similar period could bo spent at home in the assisting in production both in farm and garden, that permission bo secured to reduce the uoon hour from 1)0 minutes to 30 minutes, ami to dismiss school at 3 o'clock instead of 4 as at present. Thero is much to be said in favor of such a move at the present time when increased production of foodstuffs is paramount. A boy or girl can accomplish a good deal in an hour a day in a gnrtlen. Sinco then tho further proposition has been made that school be operated on Saturdays the same as other days during the remainder of the winter and a recess of ten days to two weeks be allowed in tho seeding season to allow pupils and teachers alike to par. ticipate in the "spring drive" for larger production. The total number of school days would not bo decreased at all and the time gained on Saturdays would be spent to excellent advantage. When food is needed more than anything else within the empire any reasonable expedient is justified. If this is to be of any use this season, it must be acted \ipon at once, as each week one Saturday slips away. Mr. S. A. Lindbfad C.P.R. section foreman here for a number of years is at the Hot Springs for his health. He has been in poor health all winter. Messrs. Lancaster and Paulson, builders and contractors, are back again at work after a few weeks with their families in Calgary. A pleasant little party assembled on Monday evening at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jno. Calven. in honor of G. K. Hazel, who leaves this week to begin training in Calgary in the A.M.C. R. J. Baldry is spending a few days this week in .Lethbridge participating in the "roarin' game" at the bonspiel. Rev. J. M. Fawcett is in Calgary this week in attendance at the Alberta Social Service conference. A party of young people assembled on Wednesday at J. P. Thomas' for a skating party. A good time is report-' CU. Jno. McD. Davidson, who has been indisposed for the past couple of weeks is recovering arid able to be around again. Bert Heighs who has recently bden receiving and surgical treatment In Lethbridge hospital Is recovering and able to meet his friends again. Miss Gertrude lloneysott, of Clnrns-holm Agricultural school was a weekend visitor at her homo here. Tho Indies met yesterday again, In spite of the extreme cold for Hod Gross sowing. The sowing classes at school arc all busy at Red Cross sowing also.
