LATHROP Firm Stafford Block Farms Loam MIXED FARMING PAYS WELL GOVERNMENT is Claresholm Creamery an Example Corn- wall Moved Cluresholm, Repl. wheat- growing Is only one of Southern Al- sources of revenue has boon iwoved moat Conclusively by the ex- perience of H number of ihe most pro- gressive townsmen and runners ot' this district. Jiarly last summer a joint slock company was formed io operate creamery in Claresholm. The num- ber of shareholders was at first only seven, but throughout, the summer months this number has steadily in- creased until there are today about sixty enthusiastic profit-sharers. The creamery was opened for busi- ness of June 7, 1912, and has been most successfully operated since that time by Mr. B. Lundb. The following gentlemen form tbe company's execu- tive body: W. J. Rigby. president; T. C. Millies, vice-president; C. G. Bra- ren, secretary-treasurer; directors, Wm. Hoffman, P. W. Elliott, L. N. .Maxwell and J. W. During (he month of August the output was 5760 pounds of butter, which, according to the government test was graded first in quality am- ong the product of 911 the creameries "n this province. About five thous- and pounds of the August product was shipped to the Yukon and Alaska points. The patrons find iiie returns from th-o sale of cream to be most accept- able, particularly comes to them during- the summer months when the sale of other farm products is at a minimum. Tjhe Department of Agriculture has assisted very materially in the sup- port of. this enterprise by shipping a largo number of llolstein dairv cows Into this district and tilling them on easy terms among, the .farmers. Mr. Cornwall Moved U'e regret to learn of ihe removal of, A. Cornwall, manager of the Dank of Commerce; and family, from our city. '.Mr. Cornwall has lived here for over six years, and during this time lias proved himself an active and useful member of ihe commun- ity. ClariJBholm can ill spare it citi- zen of bis character, birr we wish him good luck in his new sphure of work in Niagara Falls. Out. Railway Accident A very distressing accident occurr- ed on .the -Calgary-.Macleod railway, some -distance south of here on Fri- day evening. A freight train, north- bound, was taking the siding to allow the northbound 17.10 passenger train to go past. As brakesman Thompson crossed the track to open the switch lie missed his footing, fell, and was caught under the "cowcatcher" of the freight. He sustained severe bruises about the lower parts of hie body. Dr. Steeves was called, and after a hasty examination had the injured man hur- ried to 'the Macleod hospital by means of the freight engine and ca- boose. The accident occurred Friday th-e thirteenth, but we hope it is not a serious one. Skating Rink Wanted A lively gathering of those interest- ed in the .construction of a skating rink in Claresholm was held in the Council Chamber on Friday evening last. After A. Cornwall was ap- pointed to the chair, and H. Haslam to the office of secretary, a general discussion as to the size of tbe build- ing and its probable cost ensued. Fi- nance and construction committees were ultimately drafted to report on October 1. Prospects for the erec- tion of a commodious rink arc ex- tremely good. REV.

HobbitiK of Btainnore, wlio is overseeing the work performed by tbe Alherta on the wagon road through the Crows N'est Pass, making a good job of it. Mr. Roh- bins1 instructions 'arc to make a sin- gle trail from C'oleman west to the Divide, and he has a large gang of men working from Crows Nest lake to the summit. This portion of tho roail is about completed and should gladden the hearts of automobile owners. Trees, stumps and Jitones have been removed, tho roadbed lev- elled and given a coating of clay, and that once dreaded climb is now easy of negotiation by a 20-horse- power machine. Krom Coleman east as far as Burmix will be a double trail which, when finished, will be as smooth as a city street. A new road- way will be made through the. Frank slide, care being taken to inake it of sufficient width to accommodate all kinds oi traffic. All grades arc bein; hills cut down and every ef- fort made to make this road throng tlie Pass as attractive as possible for touring automobiles. There is one had stretch of between four and live miles west of the Divide, in British Columbia, hut as the B. C. govern- ment is improving the roadway still farther west it is altogether probable they will put that portion in thor- ough repair.
