February 22, 1912

The Cochrane curlers exercises great magnanimity at the Banff bonspiel last week.  They entered in many of the contests, but remembering that the Union Bank in Cochrane was already filled with valuable trophies won by local people they allowed their opponents to look in and have a chance.

The bowling alleys have arrived, and the day of the formal opening of Little Coney Island will be announced shortly.

We have been informed that thirty thousand dollars in cold cash have been deposited in the local bank during the pat week, as the result of cattle sales.  Come to think of it, it has been cold near the bank during the past few days.  But the temperature in this office is the same.

The Board of Trade

     The Board of Trade held their monthly meeting on Saturday last in the Council Chamber, there being present A. Chapman, president; T.S. Fisher, W.J. Simpson, T.C. Patterson, j.G. Tweed, G. Mortimer, and the secretary, A.E. Strickland.

     The principal topic of discussion was on railways, and it is evident the directors realize the vital importancde of efficient service, and are determined not only to make the most of the railway accommodation we have, but they have invited the engineer of the Interurban railway to meet them and discuss the matter of the projected route between Banff and Calgary. The board also sent a letter to Supt. Price of Calgary, asking him to provide cold storage facilities at the CPR depot.
