for which 1 cannot account.

LONGS FOR DRINK
A letter recently received from
Harry Kennard who is now work-
ing on railroad construction work
at Bussano, in Alberta country,
state*» that he is well pleased
with Bussano, and the only draw-
pack is the kind of waters person
has to drink there*. He says it
has a soapy taste. The* natives
say that the taste will not la*
noticed after a while, but Harry
says he can still taste the first
drink o f water he took there.
" I f there was only some way to
ship a little o f the Redmond water
up this way. other things could
be endured” .
Bussano is a town about the
sire o f Redmond, and is the head
quarters for railroad construction
work o f the Canadian Pacrfic
where a line is being built to
tap a rich agricultural section.
Everything is wheat up there,
Harry says. An irrigation pro-
ject has lately been started that
will cost $5,000,000 to complete,
and the country to be irrigated
is all tributary to Bussano. which
will give the town a good boom.
