November 28, 1912

     We advise those who visit bars to take the precaution to wear rubbers now the streets are so slippery.  We saw a gentleman the other day walking along under great difficulties.  "There is an awful sea running to-day.  I can't keep my legs.  I thought I would strike an iceberg before it was all over," said the poor man as he struck his nose on the icy sidewalk.

     The ladies of the Cochrane district are invited to a meeting to be held at the club room on Sat. Dec. 7, at 8 p.m., to arrange for the formation of a branch of the Women's Institute of Alberta.

     The hockey boys intend doing big things this year.  T. Quigley is making a rink.  They have decided to enter the league and a deputation of two will attend the league meeting in Canmore.

     The MacKenzie Glover concert in the Oddfellows' Hall on Thursday last was attended not only by a large audience, but a highly appreciative one.  Evey item was interesting, and not a dull moment or wearisome waits to bore the audience, in fact, we may say, and our concert and stage experience is wide, that we have never known just two people give such a good entertainment.  As an actress Mrs. MacKenzie is superb, any role she fills is carried out with a naturalness that comes only from talent and training.  Her impersonation of the bonny fisher lass was complete and clever, but we think she reaches greater perfection in Shakespearian drama.  Mr. MacKenzie most readily takes any part such as Wild Oats or a husband who thinks more of his horse than his wife after a few months of married life.  What we like about these entertainments is their good tone, they are not only amusing, but elevating, and deserve all the support the town and district can give.  The concert arranged for Grand Valley has been postponed.
