(Formerly Barbers for W. A. Ott.) Calgary, Aug. 17.-Despite the fact that the regulations only call for the non-serving of beef and bacon, Calgary restaurants inaugurated a regular meatless day today. In none of the leading- eating places of the city was meat available in any shape or form, not even chicken. Fish and vegetables Were served up in many new and attractive forms and there was little grumbling. It is not known yet if meatless day's twice a week is to be steadily kt'nt by the Calgary restauranleurs but there is no doubt that they have started the observance with a vengeance.

Higinbothaa & Co -- Limited �Alberta'* Pioneer DrwgglataV WholesaU erH -etall ehemlate TELEPHONE NO. st� Riga in!, Que., Aug. IS.-The great plant here of Curtis & Harvey, Limited, explosive manufacturers, wao wrecked today by a series of terrific explosions and buried beneath the ruins of a dozen or so structures that comprised the factory are an unknown number of dead. Several thousand male and female workers employed at the plant were in the danger zone for hours. Early estimates,' based on first reports, placed the number of killed at about 250, but indications were this afternoon that" there were comparatively few casualties. A relief traiu arrived from Montreal at noon bring:ng doctors and nurses but owing to the fierce heat from the burning mints of the plant they were unable to approach. No death list can bo obtained until the ruins cool. The loss in value of buildings and stock will reach well up intof millions. The first explosion was caused by the overheating of machinery in the nitric acid building, lame.s leaped along through the building and another explosion occurred. Other explosions occurred every five minutes or so, shaking the surrounding country like a series of earthquakes: ' Altogether fifteen detonations were counted. One of the explosions blew down several houses in Dragon where most of tVie workers lived ami farm houses in the vicinity also caught fire. Provision was made by the people of Rfgaud for the accommodation of, homeless workers. ! CITY AND DISTRICT For Patriotic Fund R. .7. R.
