The G erman gun which has been shelling Paris periodically, has been located in the Forest of St. Gobain, 76 miles (listen t. Ordnance experts are producing several theories as to bbw it may be possible to throw a shell 76 miles or over. H ore are three with what the aerial torpedo, with pronellor and wings iB probably shooting out of the gun. Another theory is that the gun Bhoots a re-fired shell. In this feature the shell leaves the gun and before it. has reached its destination a timing arrangement causes and second exposion, giving a new impetus to the missile. The third is that the gun itself is charged with some new super-explosive will throw a shell 76 miles. This might mean shooting a shell so high that it would run clear of the atmospheric licit surrounding the earth for most of the distance, thus evading the greatest resistance.

Edmonton, April 9.-Very creditable to the officials of the department, was the comment of James Weir, member for Nanton, on the evidence Tuesday morning at the sitting of the public accounts committee of the legislature of A. E. Meyer, superintendent of the schools of agriculture, and S. G. Car-lyle, superintendent of demonstration farms in regard to the purchase of stock by these officials for the government. Observing .that there was a feeling in some parts of the province in regard to what sort of purchases were being made the member for Nanton asked both the officials as to trips they had made to Ontario and . the States in 1915, 1916 and 1917. and both explicitly stated that on no occasion had any purchases been made by them of livestock for any others than the provincial government or the university. On these occasions they had been accompanied by Hon. Duncan Marshall or by both the minister and deputy minister Craig. Mr. Marshal' had purchased some stock for himself but not at the places tttock had been bought for the government.  Mr. Carlyle was asked by A. F. Ew-ing if he -had assisted in buying stock for the C. P. R. He replied that he had not. Mr. Weir remarked there would be nothing wrong if Dr. Rutherford had requested him to pick up something for him when he was east. Mr. Carlyle replied trfat no s:ich request had been made and he was responsible for the buying of the stock for the government. Edmonton, Alta., April 9.--Six classes of the public service of the province are created by the public service efficiency bill which stands in'the name of the Premier for second reading in the legislature. In the first are included all the higher offic ials such as deputy minister*, mem^ bers of commissions and ministers' private secretaries. Technical officers from the second class, and in the third are the administrative executive officers who will be known as first class clerks. In class four are second class clerks who discharge similar duties to those of first class clerks, but have not the same responsibility. In tho fifth class are minor clerks, stenographers and typists and in the sixth are what acaj described as fourth class employees such as the provincial police, gaol guards, janitors, and such like. The act will be administered by an efficiency officer whey in addition to making regulations and reporting as to grading and classification, shall when directed to do so, report to the president of the council upon any scheme for superannuation or for paying a.retiring allowance. Any employee may be transferred from one class to another iipon the recommendation of the president of the council on the report of the efficiency officer. Nc person shall be appointed to classes two, three, four or five, until the efficiency officer has certified in writing that the person to be appointed, is duly qualified. Because Superintendent Chris Donaldson dismissed Mat 1'elras, an alien enemy of Austrian birth, :i0 miners of the Federal Coals. Ltd.. mines on the river bottom yesterday held a meeting and delivered an ultimatum' to tho company that if Petras was not, reinstated without, delay the men would go out; on strike. Petras was not: reinstated and the mine is closed today. Is Secretary Union Tctras is secretary of Local Union No, J.J85 which embraces tlic miners working in Federal No. 1 and 2. Up till yesterday the miners have all been working on day wage, but there had been an agitation to be put on the contract schedule. Yesterday morning Siuperintendent Donaldson put the men to work on contract, hut at the line time he dismissed I'etras who been agitating the men against iJompany on various grounds, one being that the bosses were driving the men too hard. On the other hand Petras, according to Mr. Mack, the managing director, had said some time ago that the company was not pelting the work out of the men that they should get. It appears that tho reason for Petras' agitation is that he was at one time fire boss of the mine, but was superseded in that position for very good reasons. Since that time ho has been a source of trouble, accord-ing to the manager of the mine. Makes Threats When told that he would have to seek employment elsewhere, Petras told Supt. Donaldson that he would close the mine down "tight as hell." It is closed down tight enough today. No Violation Manager Mack states that the^com-pany has violated not a single clause in its agreement. The right to hire and discharge men rests with the company, and it merely asserted that right in tho case of an alien enemy employee who has been a source of trouble. The closing down of the mine, lie says affects about 50 men as several teamsters arc employed in hauling the coal to the railway yards. Another feature of the strike is that it shuts off a source of supply of about 70 tons, nearly two cars, a day which has all been going-to the Winnipeg market. "Just at. this time when it is Alberta's effort to suppl;? the Winnipeg market, and when so many Alberta mines are closed down owing to lack of orders, it is regrettable that a strike over such a petty question should be allowed." Mr. Mack is taking the matter up with the coaljCOiumissiofters and hopes to have the trouble adjusted shortly. As for reinstating arixalien enemy agitator he declares thie time has not come in this country when alien enemies can dictate to him how he shall conduct his business.

This last ignorance was terribly important to Jimmic, for he had chosen this precise moment to enter the French window in!o the back parlor. "Hands up" commanded a voice, and there was such Western authority in it. that. Jimmie's hands went up with alacrity. His feet obeyed with the same alacrity when he was ordered to stand up beside a beautiful girl whom ho had never seen, and to "marry her or die." That's some situation. That master novelist and playwrighl. George Bron-son Howard, devised it, and it is hut the first situation in the most exciting and entertaining story of the year. AT STARLAND Jack Pickford and Louise Huff, the young stars who have appeared together in many of the best known Paramount pictures of recent date, such as "Seventeen," "Great Expectations," "Freckles," and "The Varmint," are now being seen in their latest production, "Jack and Jill." which is the feature at Starland tonight. This is not a child's play, although the kiddies will love it. it is one of tiie wholesomest,- cheeriest little comedy-dramas for grown-ups in which' the two have worked-which is saying a great deal. The two-reel comedy "Roping Her Romeo,'' on the same program is a scream. help just as the train leaves the station. Putting his horse, Pete, who is almost, as well known as -Carey himself, to the gallop, Carey pursued the flying train, and not. content with leaping from the horse to Uie platform, insisted upon taking his saddle with him. How he managed to unsaddle the horse, and make the jump encumbered with tho heavy Mexican saddle and many yards of rope, is one of the mysteries of picture making which are inexplicable to the uninitiated. However, the fans will sec him doing it. and seeing is believing.

They compose the commercial ambassadors of foreign extraction, working in our very midst, vielng with British and Canadian subjects for the supremacy in world commerce. Big business, corporations, and shell like have awakened to the realization that regardless of the cost, men with outstanding faculties, men v/ith commanding ingenuity, vision, and farsightedness, they must have, to maintain the standard efficiency, to meet the demand* of the future, in" trade and commerce. To this end then, why not encourage the business man at home?, This city is full of such men. The travelling salesman is not a spoke in the wheel. He represents a more vital part in the mechanism of merchandising! 8g import ness suffers, factories close down. Therefore the Travelling Salesman is essentially a business man. . The Order of United Commercial Travellers of America is composed entirely of business men. And why? Why do its members claim the right to this appellation more than any other fraternal organization. In the first place the initial obligation of a Travelling Salesman is that of business building. To build up your employers business requires opTif'>ence in the employee. The Travelling Salesman has all the national traits, reliability, good habits, industry, politeness. He is a gentleman. He commands respect. He is worth associating with. He is worth encouraging. This city has a branch of the Order of United Commercial Travellers of America, known as Lethbridge Council No. 511. This Council meets once a month. At the coming session on April 27th, an open invitation is extended to the men of our city to participate in a good social time. There is much to talk over these stirring times in which men of all shades of opinion meet on common ground. Coine up and meet the Commercial Travellers at the Oddfellows Hall on April 27th.

For little cost a quarter of an ounce of freezons can be obtained from any drug store-which is claimed to be sufficient to remove every hard or soft corn or callus from one's feet.

A great, love comes to the heroine out of a morass of lies, deceit, intrigue and passion and, like all tremendous psychological conflicts, there is a high price to pay.
