It'* the place where lights are .dimmer than the down-turned gas in the parlor. It's the place where the lanes wind round and round. It's the place for that cozy chat with Mollie. it beats the top of the auto bus through the park, an' it only costs a dime. Don't crowd and don't let the girlies blush.

The total sum lent amounted to about six or seven thousand dollars; and nil of this has been repaid except about eight hundred  dollars not yet due ;>nd for which there is ample security. The usefulness of thp plan is now practically at an end. because the success thf.t it achieved showed the government, that ft would be a great bone-fit to the fanners if they could buy livestock and givo security on It direct to the hanks.' This is now allowed by law, and it is being largely taken advantage of. It was not possible for farmers to borrow and give such security in 1914 when the plan was started, and so the business men of I I.ethbridge pledged their personal ore- ! dit to help the farmers.
