The Provincial Red Cross Society is vastly pleased with the good work be- ing done by the local Red Cross Soci- ety according to a letter received vosterday from the provincial secre- tary Miss Plnkham. Of course, the local officials are not yet satisfied and expect to quadruple last year's results in the work to be done from now on. The local superintendent, of supplies, Mrs. Swnilcs, .has .a large I quantity of material on hand to be made up, and the ladies In the country acMacent. to town are setting ready'ior a' hard winter's leav- ing the matter of financing die work to their husbands and sons. With .un- ited effort there is no reason why the record of the Nobleford branch'should not be proportionately as high as any in the province. Several local people are entertam- inc outside friends this week. Mr. and Mrs Smith and little daughter of Calgary are visiting Mrs. Taekaberry.

In tlieseTiays of local improvements there are matters of general interest ought to he cared for and winch for some kind of public concern. We think- that the Board of Trade td hold a re-organization meet- inc and look up some of these mat- ters. It is too bad to let the town Buffer for want of some p.ubhc-spirit- action. Posters are being displayed an- nouncing the big meeting to be held on December 7th in aid of the local Patriotic Fund campaign. The mark aimed at is ?1000. and it is well with- in actual possibility in such a time as this. We have talked with a num- ber local farmers, and the general feeling is that they have reaped such a harvest of wealth as a result of war- time prices for their grain, that thoy feel they want to give some tangible expression to their desire to help out In the big fight. D. H. Elton, and Jas. .McNaugbton, M.P.P. for Little .How. are the special speakers and tile, ser- vices of Miss Simm of Lethbridge have been secured for the vocal part of the program. The opportunity is one that none should mias. Local skating enthusiasts have tak- en up tho idea of a rink and see no reason why there should not be some good skating and curling this winter. The only thing needed is some defin- ite action and this yill be taken at a meeting which has been called for Tuesday at 'i p.m. The place of the meeting will be announced on bills by tho end of the week. It is to he hop- ed that there will be a full turn-oj.it at this meeting. V A Ebberly of the Merchants Banit, has been transferred to this branch from Okotoks to relieve A.

The company voluntarily granted an! increase to hourly men of two cents per hour.- The strike collapsed owing to the ability of the company to handle all freight offering, and the sympathy ot the general public being with them on .account of the very fair manner in which they offered to arbitrate business men of Toronto, both of which were refused by the men'; The men have to thank Mayor Church who Interceded with the company on their behalf in bringing about a settlement of the unfortunale strike.
