OCCUR AT TABER Small Boy Injured Fanner Meets With Accident BY-LAW WAS HELD TO BE GOOD Year's Wheat High Judge Winter Quashes the Early Closing Appeal (From Monday's Daily.) The judgment in the appeal of Robt.' Sage against a conviction by Magistrate Humphries for infraction of the early closing by-law of the city of Lethbridge, has beezi handed down by Judge- Winter of the District Court. The appeal was quashed on every count. The judge held that the by-law is sufficiently clear in defin- ing the days and hours during which closure is to..take effect. .The classes of shops to be affected is suf- ficiently stated. Regarding the con- tention that the by-law, has not been published as provided by sub-section 3 of section 2 of the Amending Act, the judge refused to hear evidence-6f ion-publication following the views of Justices Taylor and Burns in sim- ilar cases. The by-law is clear as to who shall be guilty of an 'infraction of the by-law. He finds that the ap- pellant did keep open during prohib- it hours and that, a sale did ac- ually take place during such hours. His Honor therefore affirmed the conviction and ordered the appellant to pay the respondent's costs, fixed at ;ths Clerk of the Court. F. P.

Herald says: Samples of- this year's wheat were yesterday received by a. number of the local grain companies, suod they are enthusiastic regarding the quality. Some of the grain men are going so far as to slate that the grain submitted is of a quality %hat would warrant a grade of a trine higher than Xo. 1 red. They claim that the grain is-close to the quality of the spring wheat raised in Mani- toba. It was reported, ..on the very best of authority this'morning, that the new grain was the equal of that which was sent from Alberta to Chi- cago some two-years ago and creat- ed such a sensation among the grain men .of that word is very cheering to the citizens of Alberta, and with the continued fine .weather of the past few days the enormous crop of this year will be successfully harvested.

The water was deep- er than he expected find the horses were swept off their feet. A horse which was tied to the rear of the wagon was thrown on a projection and Severely cut in the breast. The team gained the waters edge re- peatedly but the bank was so steep that it was impossible for the horses to gain a foothold. The wagon box was swept away by the swiftly flowing river and Mr. Brittain thinking he had ridden far enough swam tr the shore. One ot the horses became ex- hausted and as is the habit, of horses when they become hopeless in the water, held its head under .-until it drowned. The other horse found a foothold on some stones and held its mate and the waggon against the cur- rent. Mr. Brittain swam to the res- cue and cur. the harness allowing the wagon and the drowned horse to be carried away. Taber, Aug. Free Press says: C. R.

Mr. Wil liamson travels over.a-very large por tion of Southern Alberta and he tells us that one of the finest crops of fall wheat he has seen is that grown by Mr. Nelson on section 5, six miles south, of Tuber. His crop will easily yield 45 bushels to the acre. In speaking- of the fall wheat generally he says it will nearly all grade No, 1 hard, Mr. Williamson is a firm believer m the future of Southern Al- berta as the greatest wheat produc- ing section in Canada. In no case where the land has been properly cul- tivated does he know of a poor crop. He says that the hard ximes of the past has been of untold benefit to the homesteaders. They Uave had to go onto their and. as a re- ult they have done i considerable I work breaking and preparing land for crop. The acreage of fall wheat sown, this yee.r will three -times as great as last year. Even with the present large acreage under crop Acre is comparatively small percen- tage of under cultivation With the way settlers have been com- ing in there will- be a vast change in the appearance of the district in the next two or three years.
