Harold was essentially a Lethbridge boy, having come hero when five years old and received all his schooling here. His brother Tom, who Is with one of the later Lethbridge batteries, had soon Harold a short time before the latter was hit. In a letter to his parents he gave some of the details but stated that he had not been able to locate bis brother's grave, It i3 understood the Canadian batteries at Passchcndaele were moved to another section only a couple of days later. Tell* of Fighting In a letter which is dated November 20th, but which his father thinks was misdated and must'have been wr.'ttcn on tiie morning of the day he was killed, Harold tells of the fighting in the open which characterized the Pass-chendaele scrap for somo days. "A couple of days ago," he writes, "the Hun put up ono of the heaviest barrages I have ever witnessed on our artillery position, nothing leas than 5.9's, lots of eight-Inch and some 12 and 15 inch shells. The country was an awful s'ght. There was something in the air all the time, guns, planks from the road, motor lorries fiercely burning, men and horses blown to bits, ammunition going up-It was certainly an awful hammering. Was partially buried once, blown clean into a shell hole of water by an eight incli shell that lit not ten feet away, and covered with the mud and water from it and that's all. This mud which we so everlastingly curse has saved the lives of thousands of men, and it is a wonder how men p.seape, how we come through it all. But bad as our lot is, Fritz's must be worse for our heavies never let up and we sure send an awful lot MR. MARRIOTT 73 Lees Ave,, Ottawa, Ont., August 9th, 1915.

Having read of " Fruit-a-tives", I thought I would try them. The result was surprising. During the 'A\ years past, I have take% them regularly and would not change for a�ything.

Stales consular agent here, shipped to the United States during 1917, goods to the value of % 1,502,430.60 according to a report prepared by Mr. Johnston for dispatch to Washington. Last year Hie expoitB from the district were only f591,000, bo that the increase is nearly 200 percent. "Tripling the exports of the district to one country in one year speaks mighty well for Sunny Southern Alberta" said Mr. Johnston. "Although 1 kuew as the moiutis went by that there was a big gain, I was astounded when 1 added up the figures for the total." Some time ago Kegiua announced the figures for the gr ;ds exported to V. S. in 1917 from that district and made quite a feature out of the fact that they had exported some $800,000 worth of produce to the States last year. Lethbridge almost doubled this figure. Enormous Wool Exports Wool was the loading commodity lo cross the line from the Lethbridge district. In spite of the fact that over 650.000 pounds of wool were marketed in Toronto at one time, there were cleared through the consular agency here 1,400,000 pounds valued at $755,-928, This puts the Lethbridge district easily in the van of all ttye rest Of Western Canada put together in the matter of wool shipments, representing as it does about 70 carloads. Other shipments are shown in the following figures. Flour, 23,000 barrels........ $275,000 Bran ... ............... 51,000 Cattle................. 29,000 Hides .;................. 71,090 Middlings ............. 44,000 Oats........ ............� 26,000 Potatoes, 695 tons ........... 29,000 Rye.................... 14,085 Wheat, 50,267 bushels ...... 81,000 Coal, 2255 tons.............. 9,000 Cattle Figures Not Actual The total for cattle is very small as compared with the actual shipments but the consular papers must have been made out elsewhere. It is kuowa that hundreds of thousands'of dollars worth of cattle have been shipped from the Lethbridge district to the Chicago yards this year, whereas only $29,000 is shown. Were the cattle figures complete the totai exports of the district, to our neighbor would pans the 2.000.000 mark. UQar Machinery Returned Another interesting item of the report, is found in the list of American goods returned to the States where sugar machinery valued at $101,616.80 is shown. This Is the machinery of the Raymond sugar factory which was removed and shipped to Utah last uuminer. RECOGNIZE UKRAINE TAKES UP NEW POST (From Our Own Correspondent) New Dayton.
