Co 'FURNITURE DEPARTMENT UPSTAIRS Tho Lethbridge press for sever- al weeks back, have' been telling about the decision of the C. P. R. to erect a big bridge at this point but the' Winning Free Press only "got next" to this important news item the other day but it made a big 'spread about it nevertheless. I'mler the heading, "One of the Wonders of the World" the Win- nipeg daily says: It is believed to have been practi- cally decided by the Canadian Pa- cific railway to enter at once: upon the construction of a steel bridge which will be one of the wonders of the world. Second Vice-presi- dent. W hyie, af the 0. P. K. is at present in Montreal con- ferring with President Sir Thomas Shaughnessy- regarding the enter- prise, and it is understood that the decision has been virtually reached to go on with the work during the present season. The new bridge will be about one mile in length and will be 300 feet in height: As compared with other badges of the world, the Brooklyn bridge is not longer, and is not more than one-half as high. The well known bridge of the Tyne in England, built by Robert Ste'ph- enson fifty years ago, is about one- half as high and one-half as long as the one proposed to be built by theO. P. K. The new steel structure of the Canadian Pacific will span; 'the Belly river at Lethbridge. Alberta, The purpose of the company iu building it is to straighten the track and shorten the distance be- tween Lethbridge and Alacleod. The grade on the new proposed line will also be 'imtoli easier, and heavy louds can be carried at very much less coat. 'The iron mills are exceedingly busy at the present time, and it is thought that difficulty would lie experienc- ed in getting any of the required material this year. The const rue- lion of the '.masonry work will. however gone on with immedi- -Uely, and the iron girders will hung during the season of 1907. As a result ot the building the ne.w structure the track of the company will be diverted to the north side of the Belly river. The work of track diversion in the country between Macleod and Leth- bridge is similar to that which has been earru-.d out by the company at various points in the.'.wust, us at Broadview, and Ixjtween this city and Fort William at several places. The .plan of the new structure is to construct a double bridge, the rail way bridge boiug with a traffic bridge as the ease of bridge over theTyue. [t is believed that there is no doubt regarding the adoption of Hendrie, neator of tlie turf, dial at his residence here after several month's illness. diicussion of the Lord's yestehlay produced a tilt between Aylesworth and Kor- den.

Oliver and McClnre: That this council considers the Remedial Clothes RT begins where Nature left off! Uneven shoulders and hips, portliness, thinness, and round shoulders can each have the defect softened by the Semi-ready methods of adjustment. A loose-fitting coat, with soft rolling collar, but rather full in front, and with plenty of cloth in the back, makes round-shouldered man look more erect and symmetrical. Unobtrusive "pepper and salt" patterns or small pin checks give least accent to round shoulders, where pronounced stripes would aggravate the defect. There's everything in seeing the shape and pattern on your own form before you order the cloth made into a suit, which you must accept from a Custom Tailor whether you like the finished effect or not.
