A sweeping clearance of all winter goods-prices featured by far the lowest ever heard of in this vicinity for goods of such sterling qualities and thorough dependability RECORD COLD SPELL IN soirra Temperature Below Freezing Point At Gulf Of Mexico On February 1st wc take stock. We would sooner count up the money in the bank than check up the goods on the shelves: and we do not intend to put a single item on the inventory sheets that we an find other owners for before that time. That is why the values for this yearly event are more pronounced than at any time in the past. Assortments are limited^ and we strongly urge early buying. Chicago, Jan. 7.-Chicago experienced Ita coldest weather In several years today when the thermometer registered five degrees below zero from six to nlue In the morning. In Tennnessee and Southern Kentucky the coldest weather In many years is reported. Freezing temperature prevails as far south as the Gull ol Mexico and as far east In the southern country as the Apalachlcola river In Florida. The snow storm which has prevailed for more than twelve bours over Eastern Arkansas and Northern Mississippi has subsided. Memphis reports a temperature of 12 above 2ero; Nashville 7; Knox-ville 18; Atlanta 20; Mobile 26 and New Orleans 28. Louisville, Ky., Jan. 7.-Attending the heaviest snow fall In tuis section for twenty-two years, there has been a return of cold weather which has served to tighten the numerous gorges in the Ohio river between Cairo and Cincinnati. Packet companies here and at points above/and below the Ohio are certain that It will be Impossible to resume operations for many days. The thermometer here today registered two above zero. ALBERTA OATS FOR PHILLIPPINE8 Vancouver, Jan. 7.-Thrfee thousand tons of Alberta oats are to be shipped from this .port to the Phllllppines on account of the shortage.

NINEDOUAR HOGS ARRIVE Chicago, Jan. 7.-The $9 boe arriv-led �t Hw Union Stock yards here, and hia coming maiked an epoch in high prices in hogs. Except for a short period in 1882, when the price reached $ per hundredweight the $9 bogs have not been seen here since the civil war. Continued cold impending transportation and apparent hesitation of producers to market their hogs are the primal forces in tie advancsE in prices which involves all hog product;;^. GRASSY LAKE HAS A UNION CHURCH Grassy Lake is organizing a Union church and already a Union Church Society has been organized with Mrs. McCrostiet formerly of Lethbridge, as president. This Is a step in the right direction and if organized under broad lines should solve many of the difficult problems of a small town where different churches would have to struggle to support their own church and minister. Such an organization should succeed. SUBDIVISION HAS BEEN SOLD H. A Driggs, of Orassy Lake, was in the city this week completing the deal whereby he sold the Alexander farm of about thirty acres, situated in the south-east corner of the city, and on both sides cf the old Crow's Nest line of the C.P.R., to the Lonn-quist Sharp Co., of Spokane. Wash., who will sub-divide It and place it on the market as Roscdale addition to the City of Lethbridge. This property was formerly owned by Mr. Brown, and used as a chicken ranch, and is immediately south of the new city park. This property was purchased by Mr. Driggs a few years ago for a few hundred dollars, and we understand the price to the Lonnquist Sharp Co. was $25,000. This is an instance whereby the public can sec the growth of our city and see that outside capitalists have active faith in a Greater Lethbridge. GRAIN GROWERS PLAN PROGRESSING Winnipeg, uan. -There was a full attendance of the members of the Grain Growers' Association committee engaged in formulating a plan of elevator ownership to submit to the government this morning, when splendid progress was made with the drafting of the AsEOciationSs plans to be submitted to the government tomorrow.

Ottawa, Jan. 6.-R. L. Borden was asked today what he supposed to be meant by the Toronto Globe's expression, "The Laurier-Borden naval progi-am." Mr. Borden replied that if the expression has any foundation whatever in record it probably referred to the naval resolutionn passed uanimously by parlL^ment last spring. In but the only decision we have had since then of the government Interpretation of that resolution is., the item in the estimates of three millions for naval purposes. Apart from that I am convinced that the expression "Laurier-Borden naval program' is used as an attempt to make the Conservatives responsible for what the government has not yet annoanc-eiJ in the way of naval policy and what the Conservative party does not know anythln;; about."
