Pingree Tanner, who gave very good addresses on the excellent subjects cho3eri. Miss Hillier.treated the subject "Labor Conditions in the Ford Factory," while Mr. Tanner's topic was "Forming of Character." The ladies' quartette "Ye Merry Birds," was very nicely rendered by the Misses Woolley, Gibb, Bab cock and Alston, accompanied by Mrs. Keeler. Miss Bdith Hacning rendered very nicely a piano selection. ' This was (followed by a retold story by Horace Ririe entitled "The Bar of Gold." The Junior Girl's chorus sang very well, "Ladle, in Khaki," as also their well deserved encore. The retold story by Miss Theta Rich held the audience spellbound, everyone was so deeply interested in the tale of "Hod Smith." The male quartette "Your Mother is Praying for You," was one of the best numbers. This was composed of Messrs. Blunnel, J. H. Bridge, Clarke and Rich, accompanied by Miss. Blunnel. All those on the program did extremely well and the people in attendance were well paid for coming out. On .March 26 th Magrath Ward M.I.A. meet with the Jtaymond Second Ward In a district tryout. * Messrs. Harold Wood, Erl Harker and D. T. Fowler are'in Lethbridge on the jury. Mrs. L.

Bennlon, who has had considerable experience in this line. too, our own people are seen preparing for spring work. John Thompson arrived home Tuesday. Mrs. Orrock is spending a week with relatives in Lethbridge.* Miss Parkinson* who has hatf a month's visit at the parental home, arrived in Spring Coulee last evening. Mr. Runqnist, of /Herbert, (Swift Current district), Saskatchewan, has paid a visit to this district, as he owns land in this vicinity. It seems rather a pity that so mnch of this valuable 1-and Is owned by nonresident settler-s who spend all the year (outside*of a few weeks in harvest) in the U. S., making it hard *�or the few remaining residents to maintain church and school with only a handrul of children. However, we sure see a great improvement of late in the church attendance. Sunday last Mr. Byron Nelson of Wisconsin University, gave the address for Rev. inglis. This young man and his good wife conducted the service in the same manner as the minister. Although the day was stormy a very good congregation assembled. We congratulate Mr. Nelson, as we know the nwany duties they have^ on the farm each day to perform. His prayers were earnest and the whole con- j"; gregation appreciated'his kindness in} driving miles through the storm not to disappoint a waiting congregation.
