This was suf- ficient for the soldier's hoard but did not by 'any means prove enough to keep the family, and to add to the expense of the home, the winter was a severe one.

In July of this year Mr. and T represented the Lethbridge branch at the convention held at'Edmonton, where Sir Herbert Ames met .the patriotic workers of Alberta.

B. Bowman, a small office has been loaned the committee of the I. O. D. E.
