This was the assurance given to the Me raid this jiftornoun by A. McDonald, who lias been in the city yester- day morning looking after his Inter- ests here. It has been generally known for the months that this company would build in Leth- brfdgc during the summer, b.ut Mr. McDonald's visit here verifies the statement. While hero Mr. McDonald concluded tho business of turning over the dry goods department of the A. McDonald po. to E. U. Rylands, and the store is being partitioned off, so that the gro- cery department, which will still bo run by i.he McDonald Co. will he en- tirely separated from the dry goods' store, which will now be owned by Mr. Rylands, Mr. McDonald seemed to be very op- timistic about the general business outlook In Lettibrfdge. he said, "things have not been very bright these last few months, Loth- bridge is going to have a great sea- son as soon as the harvest is over.

This will make the ninth of our series of warehouses In the West, and our distributing centres extend now from Kenora to VancQUVer. Loth- bridge will be just as important as any of them. Our stock will be in keep- ing with the busiiiesB being done at this point. Of course, the details have not yet been decided, and 1 cannot make any definite statements. How- ever, we will run the grocery depart- ment of the old store until the new building is finished and in commis- sion, when we will likely dispense with -The retailing department alto- gether. As for the location of the building on our site on Smith street, that is on the old laundry site, but since 1 have been here 1 have been looking over the ground, and am not sure now that it will be there.
