We wish to remind all of the fa- cilities of the BANK OF TORONTO for conducting banking business of farmers-and town and city people.

Stirling is about twenty miles south of Lethbridge on the A. H- I. Co.'s main line running south to the border at Couits. At Stirling a branch leaves the main line to located near 'the Y and the Junction.

Nourse, Manager Opportunities of Stirling. The village of Stirling is'laid off in large blocks and the man who buys a lot gets plenty of .garden room. Irri- gation -ditches run along at the of nearly every street of the village, and there is no reason why this should not be a village of gardens. Already many of the citizens are rais- fine vegetables. Nearly every own- er has a row: of trees planted along his irrigation wonder they show. growth. Those who have. fruit trees have met with success, and their experience will be taken advantage of by others in stocking their own orchards. Small fruits, such as strawberries, currants, goose-berries, etc., give splendid yields. _ Opportunity is knocking at the doors of the citizens of the vill- age of Stirling, and it remains for th-3 citizens to grasp it. Letiibrldge city is grow ng and -will grow. The city market must be supplied with vegetables, small fruits, poultry, eggs, butter, etc. The demand for theso things is growing. Stirling peo- ple should wake up and set to work i to meet this demand. Why should Lethbridge need to import potatoes j all the way from 2fpva. Scotia and j Prince.

Much improvement in noted in -the village since last 3Tew Year. The Mor- mon-meeting house has ibeen. enlarged an-d is now quite a creditable build- inj. On Sunday morning there -was a large turnout at Sunday School. It was a pleasure to see tha smiling happy faces of the school children anil to feel the welcoming hearty handshake of the parents. Sun- day School workers "of other churches should visit some 'Latter Bay Saint Sunday School and study their meth- od of work aad organization. It suc- ceeds in keeping a large percentage cf the children and of older boys and girls in the Sunday Schools. Among Mormons organization is a strong feature. If the active workers in the Mormon, and other Christian churches of Southern Alberta could get to- gether and become better acquainted it might be to their mutual advant- age. Presbyterian Church. On Sunday afternoon Rev. J, j. Cameron, Presbyterian minister from Raymond, preached in one' of the new buildings near the station. There was a large turnout and an interest- ed congregation. Planks .placed on nail kegs ample seating room flower ixxls about the trees and on the north side of the walk. New out- buildings, nicely painted, have taken the place of the dilapidated, old ones. Inside the equipment is quite, up-to- date. In thi: library are fout hundred and fu'ty volumes. The high scfccol department is well supplied with ma- terial for the study of physical sci- ence and chemistry, new maps, bylo- plate blackboard, and tools and ma- terial for kindergarten work have Deen. purchased. A large new bell hangs in the belfry; and a new fir- nacc for heating the building by steam has just been installed.

Proud of School. Of the Stirling school the citizens ought to be proud, as we think they are. Five years ago the present'brick stood on a muddy street corner amid surroundings not calcu- lated to'cultivate, the aesthetic taste in the pupils. The" was most inadequate. .Three teachers comprised the swiff. Irregular attend- ance was the rule, and not the ex- ception. As is the case in all new school districts the grading of the school was A tough problem. But the school board did not 'flinch from the task of bettering matters educational, and from this date onward their diffi- culties 'will b'e such as are easily sur- mounted by a well organized district. To give.'an idea of what has been accomplished we may call attention to the improvements'in the last few years. Tho plasticclay of the school- grounds is; hidden tinder a coating- of grass, and the ground levelled. A modern, wire fence of beautiful pat- tern surrounds, the play-ground, and throe rows of trees have been set out- The pupils have planted children on the roll of the school reg- ister is now about two hundred and twenty-five, and the staff is to be in- creased to five thia. autumn, or at the beginning of the new year. This year there is for the first time a class do- ing-Standard VH. work. The ;present principal is Mr. P. H. Sheffield, who. after a brilliant course at Lethbridge high school, graduated at Calgary Normal school. The other teachers are; Mr. J. E. Earl, of Cardston, and Masses Hum- phries and Vjpond, of Eastern Can- ada. Much praise is due the school boards of the last few years for their energy and desire for having a first- class school. C. W. Brown, B.A'., who previous to last July was principal of Stirling school-, is also deserving of considerable credit for the high standing- of the school to-day. One graduate, Clarence now attending Alberta University, and another. Miss Mary Boyson, is at- tending Calgary JCormal school. The- telephone, pay station, is situat- ed in the Stirling hotel, but as yet there is no central. There are, nine subscribers on the line, which is con- nected with Raymond There are about thirty subscribers who have already signed up for telephones when an exchange is installed in Stirling.' R. A. Davis has a confectionery, fruit, and ice cream store, Gait Ave., quite convenient to the school corner, for the children all like sweets. He also deals in eggs he buys them retail and will sell them wholesale. The Council. The present councillors for the ik- corporated village of Stirling are: G-.

Moral Eeform League. -Rev. W- G-. W. Fortune, secretary of the Temperance and Moral Eeform League, was here last week and ad- dressed a. large, interested congrega- tion in the. meeting house. A local league was formed with John Sykes as president, and Mr. Sheffield as, sec- retary. Theo. Brandljey, Pioneer. Mr. Brandley is an old-timer in the town, for he pitched the first tent in Stirling on May 5th, 1899.. There was no house nearer than Cardston, Lethb'ridge or Coutts. The railway company -had a section house, hut outside of the railway buildings there was no dwelling or building of. any kind in that distance. J3ow there are hundreds of buildings and thousands of acres, of breaking. Mr. Brandley says prospects, for Stirling have. have never been, better than at pres- ent. Raw land is selling at from to ?27 per acre and cultivated land up to ?50. This fall Mr. Brand- ley expects to build a brick addition to the front of his store. The school was built from brick made at Stirling some years ago. a. good opening for a, brick- the villages Mr. Seeley alto .unu' n livery and feed stable 'in connection therewith. They often drive landmen out for thirty or forty J.

Mr, Kruse will open- up his barber, shop -in about two weeks, as soon as Mr. can move. Some line Gardens. Jacob Spaftgler has ono ot ua- gardens, in the village of Starling. He has a lot ol currants, which, besides-furnishing plejQty of. brought in -.twelve dollars. are about twenty apple trees, some of which should .bear fruit next year- Besides, he, has lot grown from seed sown of seedlings this spring.

Mr. Spangler had forty near Stirling which" he bought for an acre, but sold it- a month ago for an acre. He has- taken up a homestead and. no doubt will also make a success on- it. J. W. Hardy runs a general store. He reports business good and increas- ing. With the. present prospects of good-crops the: farmers ought to be able- to- clear, up all old accounts do business on a cash- basis.

Boards of Trade Last winter the villagers of Stir- ling organized a Board of Trade with the following officers: W. T; Ogden; as president, and Dr. Keillor as sec- retary-treasurer. Just lately, so as to be up-to-date, a Board of Trade was organised at the now town at the station, with the following nfficers O. H. Degener vice-pres., J. H. Gray to the acre. Nest year he expects to secretary, E. B. Judson treasurer, have, tw.o hundred acres of crop, and, A. H. Schimnowski. S Between the efforts of the two Boards of Trade they ought to do great things for Stirling. It is not every place that can of two .Boards of The New Town. If the new town has no gardens it certainly has some fine buildings. The trees and gardens will no doubt come in time.
