Two hours is a long time to spend in going three miles, but that is the lime it 'takes a farmer to cross the coulee on the Macleod trail, with a load of wheat. It is a thorn in the flesh to the farmers from the north. We know one fanner who has had to have ten -wagon tires set in the past two weeks on account of the jolting in-going over the stones on the MIL Couldn't these loose stones be re- moved? Would be a gigantic task to fill up the biggest pitch holes and away with the sand nuisance on the'bottom. This hill costs the fann- ers dollars and cents. "II time were but they spend both.

Mother Superior and Father Van Tighein, assisted by the various sisters of the teaching staff of the 'atholic School entertained the riende and parents of the scholars at ire Convent School New Year's after- noon.
