According to a local engineer with fifteen years' practical experience, the steam coal from the Mitford mines has no superior in the whole of Canada.

Cochrane Races

     The Cochrane Races were brought off on a Wednesday afternoon.  The weather was everything that could be desired.  The attendance was good, and had the special train from Calgary only arrived the number attending would have been a record.  The delay of the train made the races late in starting, but when the cause of the non-appearance of the party from Calgary became known, a damper was put on the whole proceedings, and caused many wearisome waits.  The judge, Hon. F. A. MacNaughton, was on the train derailed, his place being filled by W. Hutchinson.
