This society was first opened up for business on May 9, 1912, being organJz8d,?ntli"ely by the �miners of the ittown. -The Indtial capital upon which the eonoern commenced operations was under $4,000. VKlth thl? moneyat their command they averaged approxlmaitely $3600 a' month for their sales; a record that any concern mlgW Jufltiyjbe proud of. There are at the preeent time some IBO sbareholders, their amounts invested ranging, from five to one hundred, dollars. These are-distributed over the neighboring towns of BeUevue, Paas-burg.

Theife figures'have everytJjlng else beaten so far as the results of other co-operative stores In Alberta and leaatiBTa British Columbia are concerned.
