Postoffice Giving Excellent Service Another indication of the efficient service being given by the nostoflice at Raymond was seen in the distribu- tion of late mails last week, it niny not be known to many that postoflico clerks are not. compelled to sort mail after tho arrival of the train from the north at night and it is only through the courtesy of Postmaster King, As- sistant Sclmnn and his assistant Miss Anderson that; letters and papers are nut in after seven o'clock at night. Tho mail train on the Cartl- Bton branch was hold for n couple of hours several nights during th-a Con- gress, to Raymond about i) o'clock. Notwithstanding the fact that the office was working short handed mail was distributed as usual. For this Raymond business.and read-i public arc justly thankful.

Since its Installation Ray- mond lodge No. 83 has had a steady growth and today numbers consider- ably over 50 members.

Being of a big Rume- ly engine for the best -bushel of wheat in the world has brought with it public notice that Raymond's humble citizen little dreamed of This week Mr Holmes has been fairly deluged with enquiries regarding wheat, land, cultivation, etc, to the Herald's Raymond; that if enquiries cohtfiiiSbp.d' come in ua will need, a stenographer' to do his respsniierice And by the way Henry, Holmes cannotibe disassociat- ed with Raymond and the town is getting' like publicity. 'Commissioner of the Asi representative, Is in his office again In-the Security block and will 'be glad to meet Raymond public tho tran- saction of the business of this paper. Subscriptions may be paid nt any iinuj and other matters settled. Tho value of a lost ad. in the Her- ald's classified page was exemplified in the return of Mrs. Alof Ericsson's watch and chain.

This is their first Visit to tho west and in an interview with the Herald representative at Raymond Mr. Amos expressed himself as ,WQ ptoased with Southern Alberta.. He however found fault with tlie rough way in which farming was done in many localities which had visited and was surprised that, the methods of agriculture used by many produced such abundant crops. The land In the vicinity of Raymond was inary value. This wag found lo be 10 case also at Magrath and Card ton, and as a result of suggestion fferotl at different times through i.he and by individual business men ml citizens the company decided to nvestigate. The service proposed t present is to be paid for on ommission basis and will be done hrough an uptown office. Rumor has that the location will he in the ical drug store with Win.

A mix- ed quartette was rendered by Mrs. Toombs, Air. and Mrs. Amos and W. McD. Tait. Raymond has now abundant pro vision for the supply of the food cravings of Its citizens. The time is not long since it was impossible to get a square meal in town after the hotel had closed.

The Congress is over and things are running normally again. During the rush of the exhibition a few com- plaints came in to the Herald otlice regarding irregularity in -receiving papers.
