CHAPLIN 4 SON Old Sporting Goods Stand, 5th St. S MARKETS Hailed Out Flax Yield Heavily C. F.- Kincheloe, wfio- farms 930 acres on the other side oi the Pot- hole, is oiis oi the few farmers who have been hailed out this year. He had 369 acres including 320 acres of spring wheat and 50 acres of flax barely hit by hail- The loss on the wheat was 100 per cent, and the in- surance company with which he had tlm yrain insured allowed him claim of ?a total less. Mr. Kincheloe is patting himself on the back, how- ever. This is the first year ihat he ever was hailed out and also the first year he insured his wheat. The settlement for the loss, amounting to Si600 will cover the cost of-putting ih the crop. I A-peculiar thing about the hail was that 50 acres of flax which was supposed have been absolutely, .threshed out, promises to give a vield of about one-third more than usual. Mr. Kiffcheloe says that when ffche hail hit his flax he thought it would be an absolute loss.

JMiiuutriue, j the flax being set back for a couple i oE- weeks, is liable to be too late and 1 may get touched hy an-early frost. Mii. Ktacheloe says that he is teg to try out the idea and see if cutting the flax while young w.M cause it to branch out in the same that- the hail caused it to do. If it -does it may be that a new sec- ret in farming has been discovered arid the misfortune of one man may mean the benefit of himself and other farmers. said Mr. Kincheloe, "I have nothing to be down-hearted about. I have got crops every year oii dry land and tetter crops than were obtained on irrigated land south of me and I-have made money every year. I lost one of the biggest crops of my life this year, but I was lucky enough to have it'insured for S5 an acre and I will not lost much on it." FOR VEGETABLES Lettuce, 15c. to 2pc. a doz. "uunchea.

Heavy Storm A heavy thunderstorm was general over almost, the .entire south last night, visiting the various districts at different intervals from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m., when the storm was heaviest ov- er Lethbridge.-, A small amount uf bail is reported in some localities, hut so far as can be learned the damage was small.

To the south city and east, no dam- age is reported, but the rain was very heavy in the Raymond, Ma- grath and Cardston districts. Big Crowds at Park The smiling sunshine of yesterday afternoon brought huge crowds out to Henderson Park, where the worries of hardworking citizens -were forgot- ten among, the, beauties of nature. The diving and swimming which was participated !n by hundreds of young and old alike, attracted large crowds of people, who lined up along the bridge and on tbe sand beach, while the many water craft darted here and there on the calm surface of the 'Sake. The scene suggested one of the big watering places where the gay holi- daying crowds are wont to amuse themselves, and to a stranger was an experience entirely foreign to the west. The lowering clo.uds which ob- scured the sun in the late afternoon served to frighten some but only made it -Cosier for those who stayed. The splendid concert given by the Citizens'. Band was appreciat- ed by the big crowds both on and around the lake. Some fancy diving was done by members of the Aquatic club from the. fine new diving stand which has been erected in front oi the clubhouse. The pavilion did a rushing business and everybody had a good time. The lake is more popu- lar than ever and every improvement which is made increases the comfort and convenience of the public, and hence the popularity of the resort.

Through his lawyer he claimed .that he was a.native oi the province of, Bukowina in Galicia and was a an Aus- trian. He was interned iu July. The judge in a long judgment declared that it is provided by the war mea- sures Act that no person under ar- rest or detention as an alien enemy I or under suspicion can be released on bail or otherwise discharged from custody, that no habeas corpus ap- plies for a nation's enemy, who is a prisoner of war and that, an alien enemy has no rights under the com- mon law of England. The application was therefore refused.
