The great bulk of cocoa beans are l6w-priced and low-grade. But they are used. For what? Handlers of cocoa beans will tell cocoa. Who buys the cocoa? Housekeepers. These housekeepers unknowingly miss the real flavor of cocoa produced from the finer-flavored cocoa beans. They miss a rare, wholesome treat. "Rare" is the word. The finer cocoa beans are rare. Cocoa produced from them is rare. Handlers of cocoa beans will tell you that we buy the very cocoa beans to be the most costly. The flavor of Lowney's Cocoa shows it. This flavor could not be secured from anything but the very cream of beans that the tropics yield. Our Montreal factory has a model equipment. It is as neat as your own kitchen.

I cannot deny myself the pleas- re of again congratulating you, your ommittee.and your citizens upon the lagaificent entertainment given yoi isliors. Considering the size of the ity, I think I never saw anything one so well and with such splendid pirit back of it. I look back with pleasure over 10 polite and willing attention show- 1 all of the guests of the city by the hakl uniformed cadets, the boys of our city, who acted as guides and mnei-s.for us all. From the first watched them and I do not recall earing any one of the boys using lytiling but the most polite language showing anything but tho greatest iliingness in the face of the mini- eriess requests for help that came om the visiting delegates. The oys are certainly entitled to a great eal of credit and If they continue in same spirit they should develop to a splendid citizenship for the Jung and growing province of Al- erta. Please convey to Mrs. Downer my gh regards, and believe mo Very sincerely yours, John A. Widtsoe CREAM BfflONGfOWHER Its fame is world-wide. Its superiority un- questioned.

Drivers of motor cars in this city should take warning from the above section of tho Motor Vehicles Act, for Chief Davis has given orders that it be en- forced.

The other inmates of the house claim that hotli the murdered man and the one on whom suspicion rests left about 11 o'clock, although it might have been Inter. Chairman Wilson, Of the Staf- ford Village council, who has been working on the case with the police, claims that, if Durda had been mur- dered where the body was found, it would have been discovered earlier, as it was found on the main street, where miners are continually passing back awl forth at all hours of tin; night, and one could not pass down- Alain St., or 7tli Ave., N., without almost stepping on the victim of the tragedy. This seems lo bear out the contention that Durda was nob struck down where found, but was murdered elsewhere later in and (he body dragged there. In this case the police are making enquiries to Itmi out where Besoia. and Dunl.i' parted, and if they went elsewhere1 after diet wedding dance.
