The aim of the dance to be held on Monday is to get sufficient funds nlsh the hospital with an operat- ing table. To the women of the ,city, particularly, and to the men the sentiment behind the; dance should appeal. The Gait Hospital Is not by any means a self-support- ing Institution] and for this re a'- not able to provide Ittelf >vith anything beyond the margin of absolute necessities. Whatever added; comfort or equipment needed to benefit patients can only'' be obtained by sympathetic Inter-. est of the public. When realized there should be a big demand for the tickets for Mon- day's dance- which arc how being sold in the druggists' stores in the city. _ .Coaldale has half T'jing G5 pounds .to, tlie. bushel .and tliese articles may come doivn'as 'Reason progresses..

Four or five years ago, when tbo I'Hited Oils. Ltd., was drilling au well at Foremost, a flow of feet of gas daily was struck. At tlwit time" gas was a nuisance; oil was wanted.

At present prices being charged for natural to consumers in Calgary and I.eth- bridge, this would give the gas com- pany 20 cents per 1000 feet for dis- tributing and profit. The offer was made at Calgary on Friday to Eugene Coste, president of of Natural gas company. It will take a 3C mile pipe Hue lo de- liver gas from tho company's well southeast of Foremost to the gas company's pipe line and the estimat- ed cost ot this line is H the gas company will award Unit- ed Oils a contract at this figure, drill- ing on the company's leases at Fore- most will start at once.

The United Oils, states that it is ready to enter into the contract for fivo or ten years on the basis of the price offered, subject of course to a provision releasing them from dam- ages in case the field played out. Officials of the gas company iiuli cale Ihat the minfmunr amount the United Oils offers to sell-is Iwo-thirds of the total requirements of the com pany..and is therefore too high consider at the present time.
