Tho stocks arc fairly dry In all parts of this district, but there ire some farmers who are stoking Un- bundles ridding them of the snow. With favorable weather, ten days will see all .of the crop in the Magrath ill trlet threshed. j Prior to the late snow storm, four- teen outfits were running in the dis- trica tributary to this town.

Brodle city gns engineer, of Edmon- ton, has been commissioned by the municipality to confer with officials of the geological survey department 'at Ottawa to secure additional infor- mation in respect to northern gas flows and other daia. This would iu- idicate that the commissioners are sirous of developing and operating a municipal-owned natural gas well. "A municipality owned supply of natural gas is one which, without doubt, appeals largely to the rate- payers." Air. Brodie said, "and the in- formation which I hope to get will i practically decide the matter ay far as my report is concerned." I C. S. McGregor, who says that he has had in coal and oil fields rn the western -states, 'has made a, proposition to tin1 city commission- ers lo drill for natural gas either in or near Edmonton. He said: I "Iu view of the tact that tho coiin- try around here shows indications of gas, and that the city has. no gas tf tho present tlnii', I thought that pos silily the city might consider putting down a well." -Mr. McGregor says that a well from to l.oOO feet should fairly de- monstrate the upper strata and, if required, but. little more expense would be needed to put it down fur- ther. As. there is plenty of cheap fuel and lots of water, he sees no difficulties in the. way of drilling. "My proposition is to furnish the labor on the well, consisting of the driller and tool dresser, and to super- vise the sinking of. the he adds "n his letter to the commissioner.; 'I will do this for a board for myself and established wages tar work of this dud in the oil country." ill1.
