Meeks re Council to collect the outstanding ant current electric light accounts their due dates. Some of the people in to'wn Had not paid for this month at Monday night's meeting ol Council. With these people it is sim- ply neglect, ami cutting off theh lights once would probably centive to .help their memories'.when their electric light bill becomes due next month. There are another class of people whose bill is not paid other reasons than simple neglect. These have been repeatedly notified through tho post, some }10 having toeen spent for postage in the.past two months, but they have refuged to come through. Supervisor Harris re- ports that in some cases where he has cut pf'f lights, the users now re- fuse to speak to him on the street, .and Secretary Wride could tell of some severe tongue thrashings which he received over the telephone from both sexes of light users when he at- tempted to do them the kindness of 'phoning them that they were in ar- rears. Secretary Wride, at Monday's meeting announced tliat it cost the town five cents for every ?1.0p worth of light used over and above the act- ual cost of the light to the town. Chairman Allen, of, the Finance committee, announced that the town, could cut out 100 or 200 lights, and still retain the number 'required. In their contract with tho Sugar GO. The Council have in mine! the absolute en- forcement of the bylaw regarding pay- ment oC electric light accounts. Defective Work Has Tied Up Part of Water System Portions of Raymond's water sys- tem are in very bad shape .at. the present time. .Through gome fault on the pure of somebody, presumably parties Instating systems for water us- ers throughout the town, the valves it some of the crossings were turned off, causing dead ends, where the 'wa- ;er became stagnant. When these valves were turned on last week by the Supervisor of Public Works, a part of the system became so affect- that it was impossible to use the water, and the only thing that can be done is to make a thorough Investi- gation of all valves, turning on those .hat aro now off, and aHowjng UicL water to run until the pipes are clear- on which the obscnulcs were held. ed. In some cases users have repori ed that water is as bad as any slougl water they ever used. Circus May Show for At the Council on Monday night a tiueetion was brought up which has boen engaging the attention of Leth bridge Council for BO me little time It hac! to do with the license paid b; travelling circuses and similar organ izatlone'that come to town and lak out a great amount of money. Letli bridge has pin almost a prohibitive license on a circus, reEiuiring pay ment of something like ?500. Ray morid's license is regularly a daj with a separate licence of a daj for each several additional show. When'the advance agent erf Banger's show came to Raymond, Secretarj Wride was out of town, and the by law respecting licenses was locked ir the safe. Councillor O'Brien, cbalr man of the License and Police com mlttee. endeavored to look up an old bylaw, but instead found a receipt for ?25, which had beeu given a siin ilar organization'some time ago, anc in consultation with the Mayor it was decided under the circumstances that, license.had to be namet before the bills could 'be posted, that it be set at this include side- shows. It was distinctly understood, however, among the councillors thai the full license of will hereaf- ter be collected, from .such organize tlons visiting ithe Wat Baptized by Joseph Smith .at Nauvoo A very, interesting .visitor in Ray- mond this week is peo. Rust, of iManti, Utah, who. is his .wife at the home of. their, daughter Mrs. Walter Rust was .a NauvoOjVat time of Oie. great Mormon trek 'to Utah in 1847. As a boy of nine years of age he was baptized by the Mormon Pro- phet Jos. Smithy and has many inter- esting reminiscences, regarding the early days and experiences of' Mor- monlsm in the Southern .Mormon State. This is Mr. Rust's first.visit to Alberta, and Herald yesterday that the thing that had; im- pressed him most about the country is its vast extent and the great size of Its farms. Serious Accident'Narrowly Averted What might have 'proved a' very serious accident was narrowly averted by good fortune in the Citizens Lum- beryard here last'week. A team be- longing to Mr. Ray Knight was partly loaded with lumber, having some 000 feet on the wagon; and a binder was being put. in, when in some way the team became scared, and knock- ing down tile driver passed over him. The man was 'between the wheels, and It was just by good fortune that he was not crushed under the heavy load of lumber. The team ran into lha fence, breaking it. down but were stop- ped before.any serious damage was done. It was announced on the front of last Saturday's Herald that there was-a probability that Raymond would have a beet palace at the forthcoming Dry-Farming Congress1 at Lethbridge October next. Since thai- time the Heruid representative has been in con .versntion with prominent men, not only in tho town, but along the entire railway system south of Letbbridge, and 'bringing up the matter of Ray inond's exhibits at the Congress they all spolie enthusiastically regarding Raymond's move along'this-line. With in tho town, the announcement has created the most intense interest, and is going to serve as an incentive to Apostle Whitney also gave an ad- dress at. the funeral on. the way to look at death. Me advised that in- stead of speaking.of departure from this life as death, we should refer to it as falling asleep. Death, he eaJd, was simply a .change of scene, and a return from one mission and calling to another. The funeral was largely attended, testifying to -the esteem In which the deceased lady was held. The Secretary of the Board of Trade has received from the chair- man, of the International Dry.tfarming Congress, a copy of the floor plans for the exposition.
