Town Gethng Many improve ments-Drillers Get ' Contracts (From Our Own CorrcsBOndfnt) � Wrentham, Feb, 18.-Since our last budget appeared we almost toel that oUr apology for not keeping pace with . other tow'ns along the line to be some-�r'haf out of place. Since that date wo hare got a barber shop,, a grist mill and a consolidated school. To ay nothing of the first baby to ar rive in the town, a tine big black-smitli, at the home of Charles Pota. Weddings are not out of place in our district either. Jim Connor step ped off the train the other morning %vJtb a blushing bride on bis arm. The band was not In attendance but any-way the reception given them was one the bride can surely write home about. However, Mr. and Mrs. Connor, since it Is no longer a secret, we alt join In wishing you a long, happy and prosperous lite and hoping It will be spent in our district. Driller* 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 ,8ome contracts. Mr. Van Over from Champion, where he rece-ntly sold his farm, has purchased section l-T-16, six miles northeast of Wrentham where he is putting up about f2,000 worth of improvements. His brotherln-Iaw 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. IMck Howe recently from Blairmore, but perbap^ better known around Foremost and Etalkom 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 baa a family of five children, he would not make the move until official word was.received from Edmonton that con-olldatlon can-led. So Mr. farmer when th'e tousorial artist is putting thi. finishing touches on a good mas-(� can yon imaginia it to be a remit of having a consolidated school. Mrs. A. Westergreen returned from Letbbrldge on Tueaday^ bringing with ber a fine big baby. May Buy Land Ur.

X Ijewis and John Holmeraon have leased Mr. Westergreeri's farm for six years. M^. 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 tbey will do considerable breaking this season.. The boys purchased twenty head of horses from Mr. Westergreen .80 they will have a good dutlit to go' ahead with. ^ .

Mr. Henneger tells us that be has .y lost comparatively few sheep this win-vter.. Considering this to be a very bard winter on aheei^, we can account , tor thit, only by the fact of Mr, Hen-.neger'sirery efficient equipment and methods of handling sheep. He spent thooaanda of dollars last summer in buildings, sheds and corrals, etc. He has about 15,000 sheep in this district and baa fed about twenty car loads of � hay so lar this winter. /The ladles of the church are enter-ftalning the gentlemen at the home of ' Mr. and Mrs. B.

There Is a very large Increase In fish holdings and a substantial Increase in holdings of beef. The other coramodltlos show decreases as compared with the same ditte in 1917, The commissioner's observations on the above figures follow: "I must again say that a hundred per cent. Increase of egg holdings and an almost equivalent Increase of cheese holdings over those of a year ago fall to Justify prevailing prices ior these commodities. As to ch^so I know that less than five per cent, of our production will serve our ordinary needs and that a large amount of thq stored cheese Is the property of tho cheese comihlsslon, but,-! cannot, nor need I, shut ray 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 o-wners, and while the price to the Canadian con-liumer is maintained at an altitude which does not allow him to occasionally substitute this wholesome feed for meat, the cheese producers are reinforcing' for a demand for yet higher prices tor the cheese commission." PERFECTS NEW ROTARY AERIAL MOTOR HERE Mr. B, H, 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 rotaiy method used in Mr. Tompkins' motor for compressing and ' exploding the gases elimli^ates all de-strnctlye vibration (which Is encountered in the motors now being used) and redncea friction to a minimum,' iwhlch will,give the motor uhexcelJed. endurance/As well as endurance thls^ motor displays other features of speed, j economy, and It Is claimed by the in.> irentor that it will produce at least a^ horsepower per each pound and a half' weight, making it far superior to the mdtors now in use. The invention is being financed by Lethbridge and New York capital. Mr. Tompkins add his promoter expect to leave in a fisw weeks for New York and Washington. SOCIAl EVENT); AT COAlDiaE SCHOOL (From our Own Correspondtnt) Qoaldate, P'eb. 21.-'TUo Oood Times Club gave another most enjoyable dance on Frlddy evottlug In tho hall. Tho room was tnstefully decorated with ponnunis and hearts featuring St. Valentine's day and presented a pleasing appearance. Tho mualp was pronounced to bo tl^e best this season. The hostesses were prettily gowned In-evening costume and did their utmost to ontortain tholr guests. Tho whole evening was 'the most enjoyablo of its kind held hero this season. It la to be regretted however, that tho expenses In connection with hall rent and music are so high that those affairs can only be conducted with a deficit. On tho following evening Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Dolaney entertained a large number of their friends at a dnnce. A thoroughly good time was spent by all. Return From Trips Last week saw a number of our citizens return from trips abroad.

Tho total ni|mber of school days would not be decreased at all and the time gained on Sdturdays would be spent to excellent advantage. Whon food Is needed more than any-' thing else within tho empire any reasonable expedient Is Justified. If this is to be of any use this season, It must be acted upon at once, as each week one Saturday slips awny. Mr. S.,A.
