Two men were in Letlihridge this morning, one old trooper and the other a young lad who wuh too young when he made bin ffi-Nt. attempt. u> enlist earlier in the war. A number of recruits are also coming up this evening from Coutts. The appeal for men for the mounted police Ik a strong one, and Supt. ronnefntlior la hopeful of doing u brisk business. The fact that tho exemption!* of all young men from 20 to 'i'i are to be cnncelled is likoly to cause a rush to volunteer with tbo mounted division. This will- bo especially true on the part of young men from tho farms and ranches who are good riders and like borons. Not Breaking Up It appears now that tho famous H. N.W.M.P. are not. being broknn up. The present members of the force are being given furlough for the time they may be in active service with overseas units.

Ktzikom, April 13.-The regular meeting of the Flowery Plains rural council was held on March 18. The members present were Reeve Weeks, Councillor Cooper, iMorris, McKarlaiie, Wfrtdup and Jackson. It was decided to take no action regarding soldiers' taxes until after the legislature had adjourned. The tuxes of Chas. Kimball were cuncelled as he had not filed before the 1st of June, 1910. It was decided to grant aid to those whom the council decided were un-siMc to pay their taxes. The council heard a delegation of business men of Etzikom with regard to a hospital. After much discussion it was decided to endeavor to raise a loan of $1000 for a temporary hospital to be equipped and maintained in Ktzikom. ..

Mr. Fagan preached another strong sermon last night using for his text "The Man- up a Tree". He termed Zaccheus for convenience as "Little Each" staling that he was rich but not populur, ifo was the Shylock of Jericho. "Little Zach" wanted to see Jesus but was hindered by the crowd, and here the evangelist made a most striking application of many in Lethbridge, who would want to see Jesus, but would be hindered by the crowd vjith which they run. Zaccheus was little but all man and had the grit to over come difficulties. Will you be one like him? Jesus did not pass him by and will not pass any who are looking for Him, and here he made" a touching use 6f the song "Pass Me Not Oh Gentle Saviour." Zaccheus was not. ashamed to accept the invitation of Jesus and again the evangelist threw out the challenge for any one to show one thing that. Jesus ever said or did that you i\e9*1 to be ashamed to be His dis-c,iple.- , . Contact with Jesus made Zaccheus a greater man. Prom that time his life was characterized by two things that are fundamental in every Christian, and that is that he became a benevolent and penitent man. Jesus said to htm "today is salvation come to this home and here Mr. Pagan reached the climax when ke said the greatest need of the city of Lethbridge would be that eVery home should welcome Christ. The greatest need of the nation 13 more homes that are really Christians. An added feature ito the meetings is the children's choir. Mrs. Fagan is growing in the hearts of the people and will sing at each service. Subject tonight "Moses as a type of Christ." But a New and Larger Body it! Being Ordered-The "Village Grousers." "The village grousers are at. it again." That's the way Commissioner Grace commented on the criticism of the new two-ton auto garbage truck to the Herald this morning. Commissioner Freeman intimated that the criticisms were by people who do not know what they are talking about. Commissioner Grace said that, the truck did not cost fliiOi) but. $4000 und that it was not. 72-horse-power. He declared the truck hud not been made in accordance with specifications in the matter of tho size of the box. A new box is being ordered which will be considerably larger, and will con-lain two tons of garbage. "People do not know how much garbage weighs," explained Commissioner Freeman. "Uy actual tests we have made, garbage weighs (ill pounds to the cubic foot. A box six feet wide, eight feet long and IS inches deep will hold two toiif of garbage.'' Commissioner Freeman also explained that an actual test had been I made with the truck. In 12 hours with ihree men the truck had moved I lie same amount of garbage as one of the one-horse carts and one man moved in six days. He declares that, even with the present box, the truck will pay for itself this year. The suggestion that one or two lighter, one-ton trucks would have done just as well is scouted by the commissioners, though there was an admission that the new trunk as it stands at. present will, do little more work than would one of the small trucks now being used by some of the transfer men in the city. The efficiency would be lost in using two light trucks as so many additional trips would have to be made to the dump. rumor without seeing �m first." said Commissioner Grace with ;i show of anger. "Whether 1 resign or not is my private affair.'' The Herald disagreed with the commissioner on the ground lhat he is holding pubTIc office and his Intentions with regard to the office were of public interest. "Is it really true you are Koing (o resign?" the Herald man asked. "You wait unlil I make an announcement. I am writing a statement for publication. I d9.84 \ri\\ be required during the year. Of this amount it is estimated that the government grant will cover $1100 leaving $13,269.8^ to be raised by taxation. Last year the amount asked from the city was over |14,000. The public school estimates are being held up owing to the failure to receive the audit. However work on this is proceeding and within a couple of days the public schools will make their demands, and it will be possible for the city to strike the tax rate next week. The public school ostimater, are likely to be considerably higher than those of year owing to salary increases and an Increase in the number of members on the teaching staff. the pioneer* motor machine CO.
