Mr. Tubman, of the Lake ot the patriotic viewpoint is easily the most conspicuous and successful effort yet made in this promising young community, the sum of $95.20 being raised.

Mr. Tubman, we understand, will undergo a course in aviation. Although we appreciate the patriotic course he has taken, Winnifred will be sorry to see him go. Messrs. Larsen ant* Hinck have recently built an addition to their store. They have also made several improvements to the interior, thus adding greatly to its efficiency and appearance. The Winnifred Hotel was recently taken over by F. Lovegrove, who has completely re-modelled It. The rooms are now warm and comfortable, and are much appreciated by the Winnifred public. ! M.

Letter From Don Patterson The following is a letter from one of our Champion boys which we insert because of its relation to the public: The Field, Dec. 12, 1917. ; Dear Friends,-1 would be glad If you .would kindly convey my thanks to the members of your Sunday school for the parcel which has arrived here safely. It was very thoughtful thu3 to remember the boys who formerly lived in that district, and am quite sure the parcels will be greatly appreciated by all the recipients, and I am especially pleased to be remembered by the people of Champion. My address is No. 301969, D. W. Patterson, 39th Battery, Canadian Field Artillery, France. This is an important meeting' and should be well attended.

The solos by Miss $mart and Miss Gibbons were a rare treat. The instrumentals by the Champion orchestra delighted the audience immensely^ The exhibition of motion pictures by Mr. Haddon was very good, the pictures being interesting and instructive throughout. The boxes which were put up for auction during the evening showed a marked artistic taste among the liberal donors. The center-piece donated by Mrs. A. S. Roberts on display during the evening was the prettiest yet. Mr. M. .Moffat was the lucky man in-the final draw. The reception of welcome given to one of our returned soldiers, Percy Weatherby, was of a most hearty nature, A few briefs from the address of welcome: "Mr. Weatherby responded to the call of the empire some 18 months ago. During that time he has experienced the burdens and hardships of a soldiers' life. He has gone through the strenu-oifs, nerve-racking experiences of the trenches. He has fought nobly for , tho cause of democracy, freedom and right.
