The Keatlsh association .boasts oi over sixty members and this num- her does not include all those who have conic from Kent County, bug- land, to reside here. The Kentish association came into being some years ago and L. L, .-As. niiith, Fred Robins and J. L. Man- waring arc credited with being the originators. Anyway the association exists and it is a mighty achve .or- ganization. Us social activities aic Constant in the winter months, at any rate; and no body nl men mingle so freely together 'and enjoy them- selves a's much as these men from Kent. The organization is ceaseless in its efforts to assist the less lortun- ate oi their fellow countrymen, and :is we all know, they are ever to the fore in patriotic cr.rtoavors. The" occasion to inspire this illusion. to the. Kentish association was the farewell tendered to Kent men who arc going to the iront with thu Mounted Rifles and the Battery, llic affair was held on Saturday evening in the S.O.E. hall, and it was cer- tainly a right jolly evening tliat the association provided for its guests. Of course the soldier boys were _.he lions of the evening and the Kent men in- kliaki leave Lethbridgc with happy recollections of the send-off their fellow countrymen gave them. It was a free and easy evening. The refreshments were served after the manner of picnics and the inno- vation hclpeiLalong the free and easy side'of- things. Everybody enjoyed the refreshments and after they had been exhausted, Edward Hagell, the genial president of the Kentish took in hand the program of toasts anil songs and the crowd bad something to interest' them until midnight. It was a capital program too. Maritial songs were the feature and the gath- ering joined in the choruses .with a yim until the 'hall resounded with the refrains. The host oi local talent was oniliand to do the entertaining, the ever popular vocalists, H. iu. Cooper J. T..Petts, Geo. Fleming, W. Stott, J. B. Miller, W. Carncll, Driver Mclmloo oi the Battery, and A. T.

The venerable gentleman still lias a good, strong voice. In his youth he was a chorister in Westminster Cathedral. Bert Clarke was most generous and satisfactory in his services as accom- panist during the evening. Naturally there were sjicei'hes. This part of the evening found occasion for stirring words about our soldier boys the British Empire, the worthy cause for which we are struggling, ynd strong denunciation of German (methods with, as might be expected, special application to the torpedoing of the Lusitania.
