Many old friends of the bride were there to welcome her ba'ck after her extended trip abroad, and to offer all good wishes. In the evening several of Mr. Wilson's friends dropped in to tender felici- tations, and incidentally to get a bit of wedding cake to dream on. On Saturday afternoon last Mrs. W. H. Fairh'eld invited a few friends out to the Experimental Farm for afternoon tea. They were driven out and back to town again, and after the drive in the fresh air enjoyed very much the tea hour in the cosy surroundings at The Farm. Miss Meek, of St. Thomas, who has been with Mrs. C. V. Bennett for some'time, left last Saturday for Re- gina, but hopes to pay Lethbridge another visit before long, as she goes through to the coast.

A NEW UP TO DATd CAFE The opening dinner at the Alexan- dra Cafe will be served on Monday evening next. The standard on which this cafe will be run will, to say the least, be a surprise to those who patronize it. Mr. II. Murray, the proprietor has been led to open a restaurant in the city by repeated requests from the business element. He is well quali- fied to meet the demands of any in regard to catering whether it be as to surroundings, service or menu. He has had sixteen years' experience as a restaurant man at summer resorts and other places where a varied class of customers have been catered- to. Mr. Murray has secured the services of an ex-C.P.E. chef, a man whom he had in his employ some years ago. This man satisfied him to such an ex- tent as to warrant the endeavor to procure his services_ again. This chef comes from -the Jimpire Hotel at Winnipeg. Incidentally, Mr. Murray does not come to the business centre of the city as a stranger, he having been one of its most respected citizens for the past two years. The fact that he is known will indicate the class of restaurant he will manage. The Alexandra will be equipped in the most modern style. Seventeen On Tuesday evening Mrs. E.
