September 19, 1912

     Over two million bricks have been turned out by the Bruel Brickyard this summer.

     Last week a man wished to celebrate the visit of the Duke, and a birthday coming on top of that, nothing but champagne could fittingly mark the event.  The penalty for his excesses came next morning with a burning sensation which only a fire extinguisher could remove.  Moral, touch not.

     An engineer in the employ of the Canadian Northern spent a few days in Cochrane last week, looking over the country.

     Altogether there are seven projected railways into Cochrane.  Surely we shall get some of these.

     Plans for the erection of the necessary buildings in connection with the C.P.R. demonstration farm are being arranged, and the heads of the Land Department have been in consultation with Mr. Cook concerning the most desirable stock and equipment.

The Boy Scouts

     The Cochrane Boy Scouts enjoyed their trip to Calgary to take part in the Duke of Connaught demonstrations.  The boys earned for themselves the credit of being one of the smartest troops present, their conduct was irreproachable, and it was quite a feather in their caps to be given the place of honour in the bodyguard formed by the boy scouts.
