A Big Real Estate Deal

     Many evidences in support of the belief that Cochrane will be one of the busiest little towns in the west within the next year have been seen during the past few days.  A big deal was put through last week, when 175 acres, immediately south of the C.P.R. track and depot were sold at a price in the neighborhood of $50,000 to a syndicate.  George Pitter, representing the Wittichen Investment Co. put through the deal.


The Club

     A meeting of the directors of the Cochrane Social and Athletic Club was held in the club house on Wednesday, and a considerable amount of business was dealt with.  The following appointments were made:  A. Chapman, chairman; F. Maggs, sec-treas.; J. G. Tweed, librarian; Rev. Harrison, assistant librarian; R. Chapman, instructor in athletics and calisthenics.

     It was arranged to form a literary and debating society and also make application to the McGill traveling library for a supply of books.  It is anticipated that many very pleasant and edifying evenings will be spent during the winter.
