When driving west from Bow, Is- land a person can see a strange white object shining in the sun away to the west. The writer wondered what it was. But when nearing Grassy Lake it showed to be elevator No. 4 of the Medicine Hat Millmg Co. which had been built at Grassy Lake since the Herald man was here, a few days ago. A view' from the top gives a pano- rama of homesteads, grain stacks, and over the country for fifty mile's. They also -do considerable dray work around Grassy Lake.

So said a. citizen of Grassy Lake to the Herald man.. There is great talk of arranging for the bringing of gas from'Old Glory. Why not go in with Lethbridge and Taber and have a pipe line from Old Glory right through to Lethbridge. The gas bottled up in the'pipe is no more use than if it -were still undet the rocks. The wire: and poles for tfce exten- sion of the Government Telephone line from Taber to Medicine Hat are already here. The business men are anxiously waiting to see the erection of the line when Grassy Lake can say Hello to the rest of the province. The C. P. R. have three tracks be-, sides the main line. Six trains met here at one time today. No water tank but a contract has been let to Mr. Fleming to bore fqr water. There is a loading platform and a good .large stock yard. There is: now a large ex- tra gang of men working on the grade. Lumber is already here for the erec- tion of a new depot. ATI operator and an agent are.'now-! sttioned here and both day and night I trains stop big improvement j since last winter. The Maunsell ranch-shipped twen- ty-five carloads of cattle today.
