NEW ARRIVALS ADD TO OUR HANDSOME DRESS GOODS DISPLAY T takes time to get acquainted with all the newcomers in llcth- bridge, but we arc gradually in- creasing our circle of patrons wider and wider every day. Our buyers thought they bought, heavily in Dress Goods, but so many, customers saw their particular tastes gratified, and the goods went so fast, that we had the original order doubled. The goods are all in. What woman in Leth- bridge is proof against such a beautiful assortment Plain weaves and fancy novelties, pure wool and silk, and silk and wool mixtures. And the they excel anything we ever had in the store, and that should be the highest pos- sible recommendation we can give them. We invite you to examine our Dress Goods carefully and make careful com-' pariaon with other stores. We are quite sure you will come back to the Hudson's Bay Stores. LIVED IN T8E FAR NORTH MEARLY HALF CENTURY Making HU Flrrt VWt to Ed- monton Though In Since Far (Edmonton BuJlHiu.) north. from'- civilization upon the rugged banks of Athabasca Lake, in the land'of the midnight sun, hun- dreds of miles from-'the centres of population, tliere has lived for almost half a century a man who now is visiting- Edmonton the first time in his life. Now -lve'-is filing, when ast his three score years, and fast pproaching the allotted span of mman existence, some of the sights which he has inkny times heard of but never witnessed be-fore. To him or a generation .the progressive narch of civilization has been a closed book, and in': his declining years he -longs, again for the freedom mile overland tramp brought, the party to Chipewyan river, and down to the lake upon which the palisaded H.

Oir the incidents of the forty.five years spfnt by Mr. Wylie at Fort Chipewyan many a book might be written. But while there is much that is romantic in a lifetime spent far away from civilization among the Indians, there is also much that would seern prosaic to the dwellers of tin' plain. To the old Hudson's Hay employee, however, there is only one life. "I'm going down to Fort Chipe. wyari where I'm he said. "Here LJm a prisoner; when I'm home I can shoot, fish and cut wood to my heart's content." Thus the lure of the wild attracts u'm, and life in Edmonton is b.ut an rupatient wait for the more alluring ife of the. lonely country of the jor ili. First Vicit to Edmonton. Mr. Wylie came down to Edmonton n the early part of September, hav- ng left the fort on the 7th of August, t was his intention to go on a visit o his old home in the Orkneys, where -wo brothers and two sisters still live, he had been given a by the Hudson's Bay Company.

In the winter of 1362-1863 William Wylie gained his first experience of life on the American continent by his residence at Fort York.
