Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 16, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT "THE' LETHfiftlDGE* DAH& F DOMINION DAY Likely To Be Big Affair For Red Cross-Light Plant Is Delayed Magrath. June 14.-Tho ladies of the Red Cross have opened a lunch mid Ire cream room in the lately completed building adjoining: Wood Bros.' store. The place will be open for business every Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Last Saturday the new venture was given its first trial. A snug sum was realized although the weather was nothing favorable. The ladies who have undertaken the responsibility of the work, are Mrs. Harold Wood. Angus and Mae Turner. Alice Wooley, Sarah Mercer. Eliza Rich. Mrs. Bruce Cope. M. Shelton and L. Harker. Two different ladies �will take their turn at managing the business each succeeding week. Two ^iew sewing machines have been purchased and the officers of the local branch are very desirous that all women in town and district lend their efforts toward Red Cross work, and help maintain the splendid record they have made in the past. A good shipment has been sent from Magrath practically every month, which has proven more than satisfactory, the ladies are to be congratulated on their worthy attainments in the past, and should be commended and supported in the new undertaking they have launched. The city fathers held a special meeting Wednesday evening. Mayor Bennion and Aldermen. Harold Wood, J. T. Henninger Sr.. and E. Piugree Tanner were in attendance. The advisability of holding a mammoth celebration on Dominion Day was discussed pro and con. all were in favor of celebrating. A recommendation was made and sustained that the day be turned over to the Red Cross society, if they so desired, and that they have the proceeds of the day over expenses. It was thought that this would be an efficient method of raising money for the society on account of so much money being in circulation. The mayor and aldermen pledged themselves to assist in any way possible on committee work, should the Red Cross , decide to monopolize the day. Mr. Crane, of the Crane Cassidy Electric Co.. was present, and the time when the lights would be on was discussed. It was discovered that the time had expired as stipulated in the agreement between the town and the electric company which stated that the lights were to* be in opera, tion within two months after the bylaw was voted on by the ratepayers. Mr. Cane explained, that, they. _were doing everything in their power to facilitate the operation, but were unavoidably delayed on account of a shipment of poles from Fernie, and the dynamo from Minneapolis. He stated that the poles were on the way and that he would wire Minneapolis and ascertain if the dynamo had been shipped. - The council in discussing road work decided to do away with the irrigation ditch running along one side of the main street, pull the dirt into the centra of the street, then specify a certain day, call for donation work, and put a good coat of gravel on top and fix the drains so as to put the road in first class shatje. A number of citizens have volunteered their services, when ever required for a good road day. Mrs. L. S. Taylor has returned home after spending the winter in Salt Lake City -with her mother. Latest reports from Pte. George Baxter state that he has nearly recovered from his wounds, and expects soon to be in the front trenches again. Magrath is sorely in need of more adequate hotel accommodation. Any enterprising hotelman would do well to' erect an up-to-date hotel on the main street. His financial Buc'cess �would be assured, as present hotel accommodation is .not sufficient to meet the demands of a growing community. Magrath has been rightly named the Garden City. Travellers invariably assert that Magrath has got any town cheated In Alberta or Saskatchewan for trees and shrubbery; therefore, it holds out extra inducements as a residential town especially in view of the fact that modern conveniences .will soon be a reality.
