Mrs. Robertson, with five Children, came from Lachute, Quebec, to join her husband who has been here some months working in the car shops. They have taken one of the company houses in which to live. We welcome them to our village. So high did the water in the reser- voir creek rise that the stables were in danger and had to be moved. This a gang of twelve men did, taking it fully sixty feet from the bank onto solid ground. Hamar and Davis .will soon have the new bridge completed over the Creek and when finished it will prove for the celebration. Some of the interesting items already on the pro- gram are: Races for the children. Egg and spoon race, for the ladies. Bannock race for the hungry. Tug of war between four men and eight women.

The men, or a large number of them, are paid bv the ton and this being a remarkably- easy mine to work they are able to-- make surprisingly large wages.

Every new family that comes to Westem'Canada should be users of Royal Crown Soap right from the start. Ask any of the people you settle near, and they will tell you it is the best soap to use. It is specially made for the West. The water in tin's country is very hard. Royal Crown Soap is made from a special formula to suit this hard water. Don't begin your life in the West by using any other soap, and thus wasting money and getting poor results. Tests made show that 6 bars of Royal Crown Soap do mere work than 8 bars of ordinary soap. Royal Crown Soap will save you money. It is easier on the clothes. It washes whiter than ordinary soaps. Don't make the mistake of starting with any but Royal Crown Soap. You will find that your neighbors are using it as they know it is die best soap for use in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Start away and save your wrappers for premiums. We will send a list of premiums free to any who ask for it. Royal Crown Soap has been in use1 almost exclusively for over 20 years in Western Canada. THE ROYAL CROWN, Ltd. WINNIPEG Prof. K. W.
