In the Lethbridge Steam Laundry of which TVjJliam Headerson, F. W. Downer and L. Fabst are the chief owners, there .is an investment of twenty-two thousand dollars. The building is a large two-storey brick structure and 'it is equipped wfth the latest improved machinery, some of which is very expensive, the mangle costing many thousand dollars. Ev- erything is -the very best that could be got and there is 70 better-equip- ment in any western, laundry. Downstairs whero the washing and mangling is done. there are three large washing machines of different sizes which are used for the different kinds of washing. They are large cylinders 01 different sizes enclosed in cylindrical frames. The revolving: of the cylinders causes the clothes with- in to become thoroughly cleansed in the various processes mentioned later without having any chance to become injured. There is a special washing place for handling the flannels. The wringing ;s done in a centrifrugal wringer or extractor.

This machine revolves so quickly the water from the clothes is pressed out and forced through the small holes in side of the cylin- The mangle is a large five-roll Nel- son Kneuter machine with a cap- acity running up into thousands of articles p-r day. It is steam heated and almost every article becomes thoroughly dried by going through thr rollers once. Heavy'bed spreads to be put through again; Naturally there would be a great volume of steam from the various washing machines and the mangle but it is not in noticeable. In the south wall is a steam exhaust which not only takes all the steam from .the building but keeps the air pure and circulating., Anyone on the outside watching the steam from tlie Mr, Francis, the man- ager, says that people could got their laundry more quickly if they would separate the flatware from the rest of the washing and there would be Jess liklihood of mistakes oecuring The clothes are checked by the list 1 and a duplicate list made for the 1 fice. Starch work is taken in. up to Friday morning for Saturday deliv 'ery and hotel work for washing and mangling only every day. The l white clothes first put in one of the cylindrical washers and given a cold wash, with soda in the water, particularly if stained with blood or other hard stains. The cold is run oft and hot water and soap being put on, the machine is ,run for half an hour. Then follows a hot water rinse, then more hot water and soap, this time the cloth- ing befoig boiled. TWO hot rinses, the 'hotter the better follow, and a cold rjnse fou-'V.ev by tUi blueing wash. Each water is used, for half an "hour j The colored receive tiic same treatment except that "they tire not boiled and the rinsing waters do not exceed a certain temperature. j -Good flannels such as would not j stand this, process are washed by hand with a special olive-oil soap.

As it is impossible to handle blankets with other goods they are washed only on Saturdays.
