S assurance that thoy were given Mm moat skilful treatment possible, film paid 11 tribute to Urn doctors and Mm nurses who work nh;!it and day for Mm safety and comfort of Mm hoys. Miss Ward also pleaded for the utmost activity on Mm iiiirt of everyone in (ho interests of the Ited Cross. "If you knew the need as I do you would need no urging," she declared. Miss Ward also told of a visit, to a horse hospital behind Mm lines, of how the. dumb animals ar.' nursed back to health, and pleaded for aid for the Ulue Cross. And to the Y.M'.C.A. and the work it Is doing she paid A tribute. "Tommy Atkins says it means 'You Must Come Again.' the darling," said Miss Ward. Miss Ward is a wonderful entertainer and sho can make chalk talk to enhance the point she is trying to make. Shi! is brilliant in her little stories, and makes frequent use of Mm cockney dialect to imitate the Tommy as he really is. And she has had the experience which brings home Untouch of realism that keeps the audience hanging breathless on every word. Twice she lias been aboard a vessel which was chased by a German sub. Once she got a whiff of poison gas while in the trendies. And her appeal to the women of Canada to knit, knit, knit was delivered with such wonderful earnestness that a realization of the great needs of the boys at the front was brought home to the ladies in the audience as no other appeal could have done. "Go on," she said, "not for a month or six months or a year, but until the war is over, and a crown of glory will be yours." Miss Ward spoke shortly last night again and was given a wonderful reception. She has captured the heart of Lethbridgo. The Chautauqua orchestra and Miss Oiive McCormiek entertained the large audience last night. Miss McCorm-ick's voice has a wonderful range and is so flute-Uke in the higher ranges that the prolonged applause at the conclusion of her performance was more than deserved. The orchestra is well balanced and one of the loading musical attractions of tho Chautauqua. TOUR WESTERN PROVINCES Ottawa, Aug. 10.-G. 11.

All Seats Free ;io Collection wild west has not altogether gone. There are boys on the ranches south and east of the city who pull off stampede stunts in their everyday occupation. It is to give the newcomers to the west a chance to get a breath of the old range atmosphero that tho stampede is being staged. The old-timers are determined, \that the old-fashioned round-up shall not pass out of memory. There is one rider who will not lively perform at the big stampede, and that is "Tex" Smith. "Tex" arrived in the city the other day all primed for the wild ones that will he turned loose in front of the grandstand next week from half a doen chutes. By way of getting himself in shape ho went out to the country and essayed to conquer a wild one. It roared, falling on its back and "Tex" has, a broken collar bone. But he says he will ride if the bone is knit enough to hold together till he. gets on. j Merchants, restauranteurs and hotel keepers are preparing to handle tho biggest crowd of their lives. So is Commissioner Freeman, who will have the street railway schedule all fixed to handle the crowds to the park. In this particular Lethbridgo leads over Medicine Hat whore during its stampede, it cost each person a dollar for transportation to and from tho grounds. Tho crowds next week will be lurger than was at first thought. A weok ago it looked as if harvest would be general all over the south by next week. But owing to the heavy rains the grain is remaining greon in many sections and harvest, will �, interfere very little with the stampede crowds. Altogether the. outlook is due for a big stampede, big crowds and a general good time which will do much to make the amalgamated fair here next year n success in point of popular interest, it will be Lethbridge's first real try at a modern stampede and will bo far and away ahead of anything of the kind ever staged hero in tho past.

CI BILL Ottawa, Aug. 10.-T*ho house spent the day in consideration of a bill to bring the Intercolonial railway under the jurisdiction of the railway commission. Considerable discussion "centered round the measure, which received a second reading and entered committee). The question of the imposition of penalties against the crown came in for. considerable debato, several Liberal members contending that the King, if he run a railway should be as much subject to penalties for damage committed to life or property as the head of n privately owned road. W. S. Middlehoro moved that his niajoaty or the. minister of railway should not be liable to any line or penalty excepting such as the railway commission might impose. The motion stood pvar. Calgary. Aug. 1(1.-The progress of the British-Canadian work in the United States was outlined in an interview by Col. .1. S. Dennis, who has just returned from Chicago. Col. Dennis is in command of the western division of the British-Canadian recruiting mission in the United States, with headquarters at Chicago. Speaking of the work of tho mission, Col. Dennis explained that an agreement had been entered into between the British and United States governments under which the British-Canadian recruiting mission is authorized to establish recruiting depots throughout the United States to give Britons and Canadians, who are not citizens of the U.S., and therefore not subject to draft tinder U.S. conscription law, a chance to enlist in the British or Canadian armies. Tho mission is commanded by Brig. Gen. \V. A. White, C.M.G., a British officer who went to France with the first British army, and has been there over since, lie having been decorated by both the British and French governments for distinguished servico. The headquarters of the mission are In New York, but it was thought wise to divide the United States into eastern and western divisions, and Col. Dennis, owing to his intimate knowledge of conditions in the United States, was invited by Gen. White and the Canadian government to take command of tho western division, ho being loaned temporarily by Lord Shaughnessy for this service. In the western division, headquarters have been opened at Chicago and other depots established at Minneapolis, St. Paul, Duluth, Omaha, Kansas City, Spokane, San Francisco, and additional depots are being opened at Seattlo, Portland, Los Angeles and other points where recruits are offering. The mission has only been at work two months, but to date some five thousand men have beon recruited and an average of five hundred men a week are now being sent forward to Canada for overseas service. All tho recruiting depots in the western division are being manned with returned officers and non-com-missioned officers from the western provinces, and Col. Dennis already has on his staff several men from Alberta, including Lt.:Col. F. C. Jam-leson, who commands tho Chicago depot. Speaking of the visit of the 4Sth Highlanders to New York and Chicago, which aroused ro much enthusiasm in those cities, Col. Dennis explained that this trip was undertaken to stimulate recruiting by givins people in the United States a chance to see a typical Canadian fighting battalion. The cost of the trip, amounting to somo eleven thousand dollars, was borno by a small group of eastern Canadians who wished to help tho good work in the United Statos, nnd the visit was historical in the sense that it was the first time sinco tho war of 1812 that British troops under arms, carrying their battalion colors, had visited the U.S., and also because during all thoir parades in New York and Chicago, tho 48th Highlanders carried with the British and battalion colors, the battalion colors of the 71st Regiment of New York, loaned to them by that regiment. Col. Dennis leaves in the morning for 'Soattle to meet Gon. White and complete the arrangements for opening the recruiting depot there and at other Pacific coast points, but expects to return to Calgary for a few days at the end of next week. He points out that all the recruits obtained through the Spokane depot with sub-depots at Great Falls, Helena. Butte and other points in Montana nnd eastern Washington, will come to Calgary to be trained at the Sarcee camp. ' .

Myra Henderson, Slocan City, B.C., saved a small girl from drowning by holding her shoulder until help arrived. LETHBRIDGE MERCANTILE CO., LTD, Exclusive Agents and Distributors for Southern Alberta.
