Au occa- sional load is being worked for export trade but the market is advancing too rapidly for any considerable busi- ness to be done. e after 4'ave of buying struck the local mantel and the soft spots were tew and far be- tween. Almost everybody was long and wheu the bidding started no one cared to sell. Then prices shot up at n fast rate. A lot of wheat changed hands. Orders came in from the south which helped to increase the bullish sentiment. Reports' of dam- age to the Canadian crop caused it all 'ith the help of .bulisli estimates. Cash wheat sis in firm demand though the premiums were a hit off- Oats were in good demand, especially the low grades. II ARE DEPRECATED Lethbridge will shortly have a quali- jfied "bug Sanitary Inspector Vallance is in Edmonton for two months in the laboratory of the prov- ncial analyst learning to test'Water, milk, etc., for disease germs. This is in accordance with a suggestion made last spring by Dr. 'Jamieson, provincial analyst, that the. city should have a man here who would be able to make bacteriological tests of millt and water supplies without the delay of send- ing samples to Edmonton. Mr. Vallance has written Commis- sioner Freeman that the water from Henderson lake has been tested and seems to be not at all bad. The bac- terial count is low, and_the_ presence of colon bacilli almost inevitable as the result of the'amount of bathing. The weed from the lake is being ex- amined in an effort to locate the cause of the itch. Winnipeg, Aug. re- ports of the prevalence of black rust in this province are being industri-; ous'ly with the I design of strengthening the Chicago bull market. Black rust, indeed, has appeared and is prevalent over some districts of Southern Manitoba, but evidence accumulated, to date tends to show that perhaps not 10 per cent of the crop is affected. A spell of dry cool" weather would be welcome as tending to check the progress of the disease. HUN SCIENTIST DEAD Berlin, Aug. L. Al- bert Neisser, of Breslau university, died yesterday. Prof. Nelsser was a famous dermatologist, and had made many important discoveries about in- :urable diseases, notably leprosy. L. Ketcheson and John Carter, of Hungerford township, were the vic- tims of a runaway accident. The men were thrown violently to the ground, with the result that Mr. Ketcheson sustained a compound fracture of his right leg and Mr. Carter was probably fatally injured.

Supt. Pennefather of the Moun: ted Police has the program in hand. Early in the evening a fllg parade will be held which will be headed by the Miners' and Salvation Army bands. Then will follow the JUountecl Police at the right of the 1ine: followed by the 7Sth Battery, representatives of other overseas-units, returned, veterans, and fraternal orders. Supt. Pennefather would be glad to see the latter turn out in force. The parade will move from, the Y.M.C.A. corner, down Sec- ond avenue, and around Gait Gardens by the .Hudson's Bay corner into the park where addresses will be delivered by Mayor Hardie and Capt. Rev. A. H. Denoon. ID till. Ill That the United .States, so far as the middle western. states are con- cerned will not have a 70 per cent crop is the opinion of H. E. Craw- ford, business manager of the Chi-1 nook Collieries who has just returned j from a month spent in Kansas, 'and othe points across the border. Mr. Crawford returned yesterday ana says he has seen no crops on his trip that compare at. all favorably with those of Southern .Alberta. One part of Kansas has had no rain for 34 days, setting a record. Mr, Crawford states that labor in all lines, mining, rail- roading and farming, is very short across the line. Desjariais, St. Blwidge, Compton county, Quebec, was killed' in, an automobile accident near his; home, when his' car skidded and threw him out. His skuli was fractured.

This may be said, to be the dying message of Alwyn Bramley-Moore, of the Princess Pats, to the people of Al- berta. It'Is taken from a letter Just -received by Hon.

The letter was found in a i pocket when his effects were returned j to his relatives in England, and was I forwarded by Lesley Bramley-Moore, j a brother, to the minister, along with a book, "The War Drama of the i Eagles." by Edward Fraser, dealing I with events of the Napoleonic period, which Mr. Bramley-Mdore intended for the provincial library. Interesting Souvenir The book, which in the years to come will be regarded as a more than ordinarily interesting souvenir of the great war, .because of its persona! as- sociations, was read ,ln the trenches by the platoon of the Princess Pa- tricias, which the sender was .a mem- her.

Lethbridge is making one more grand effort to 'fill up the ranks of the 113th Lethbridge only Canadian unit that will go to the front bearing the Lethbridge emblem on its uniforms. At a meeting of a number of representative citizens held in the board., of .trade building, last night, presided over by A. H. McKeown it was decided to get behind the bat- talion in its effort to find 100 men so that it may be sent without further delay, secure in the knowledge that it will not be broken up on their arrival in the old country. Those attending the meeting last night were Mayor Hardie, Dr. Taylor, Sheriff Young, R. R. Davidson, A. J. B'.ackhourne, Jas. Dawson. A. Hugh Boyd, Lieut. Asriuith and the press. Lieut. Asquith outlined the .position of the battalion, which is just 100 men short of the renuired number. These must be obtained right away by some means. He asked the citizens of Lethbridge to get behind the recruit- ing agents as they did last winter and hejp to -bring it up to strength. A lit- tle money will be needed arid Mayor Hardie promised to vote from the citv treasury to cover recruiting ex- peiises. This was done this morning and a conditional offer of more if needed was added. With this money Lieut Asquith who has charge in the south, will send out recruiting agents to all parts for ten days or so, and be- lieves he can secure 50 men. The bat- talion-baseball team.is being brought down as an attraction and the mem- bers of the team will turn in and re- cruit during their trip. visit Lethbridge, Taber aud Warner this week and probably other parts in the district next week. The lieuten- ant is very sanguine as to the outlook. He admits many men have gone, but points oil 'that Lethbridge is still many men every week and thinks 'the reputation of the battalion at present in such that men.will be glad to join it so that they may get to'the front quickly. Haryey Bright, a Welshman and a new Highlander recruit was. signed on this morning. You Need it in Your Kitchen Your Grocer Will Supply It See that You Get "OUR BEST' the next Sack of Flour you buy.
