J. E. Hughson last evening in Mc- JDougall Methodist Church, to the j charge. of which he was recently ap- j pointed. Mr. Hughson took as his text Psa. 72-S: "He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river to the ends of the earth." "Seven years ago last month." said the preacher, "I left a quiet little town on the eastern coast and turned my footsteps towards the setting sun, I had been a minister for some years In the Jtfova Scotia conference, but jthe Western fever bad got into my veins and I was restless.

"Later I saw that town grow into an incorporated ejty, with splendid brick and stone blocks, and with all the improvements and facilities of a modern city. I saw the old frame church put away and a handsome brick structure take its place. I saw the country for fifty miles around i springing into life. j "It has been so all through the West. I cannot tell you how sur- prised I am at the marvellous pro- gress made in this city since the time when I last walked up its streets four years ago.

Times says: About a week ago, on instruc- tions received from R. E. Chad wick, of Edmonton, superintendent 01 de- pendent and neglected children for the province, Sergeant Thomas of the R. jST.W.M.P., proceeded to the home of Robert Sallenbach, a farmer of Brant district, and took possession of six children, ranging from four to four- teen years ot age. He returned the same day and took the children to the Children's Shelter in Calgary, where they will remain temporarily. This action was taken on account of various complaints having been received as to the cruelty of Mr. Sallenbach to his family and also af- Never before has passenger traffic in all directions to and from Leth- ter careful investigation on the part bridge been so heavy as it is LOW. The afternoon locals appear to be the most popular with the travelling pub- lic. Day after day the two passen- ger coaches on each train each way arrive packed, are emptied and are quickly filled again, until, for many pa'ssengers, there is standing room j of Sergt. Thomas. On the 15th inst. Mr. Chadwick arrived at High River to be present at the taking of evi- dence in the case, which was Heard by Messrs. W. E. G. Holmes and Col. Wyndham. Stabbed One of Children The Evidence of Mrs. Sallenbach, only, while for the space usually of I and "the eldest daughter, three quarters of an hour the ticket wickets are fairly mobbed. A visit to the depot -when the afternoon lo- cals pass through, not oae day, but every day for a couple ol weeks mil soon convince anyone ihat the train accommodation, the ticket office commodation and 'the platform ac- commodation is altogether too limit- ed for the requirements of the city. .ASK FOR SPACE AT DRY FARMING Macleod, Aug. Board of Trade Council, at Its meeting Tues- day night, voted to apply for 'two spaces at the Dry Farming Exposition in Spokane in September and to en- gage a man to collect exhibits of grain and other products of the district, for exhibition there, to supplement those already secured. W. H. Jeffries will probably take charge of this. Mr. Jef- fries will also submit a plan-for the cost of a special car and will ibe in- formed as to these particulars in a few days.

A dispatch aged 18 years, showed clearly that on many occasions Mr, Sallenbach had illused his wife and family-. On one occasion he stabbed of the little children with a butcher kniie and attempted sew the wound up with needle and cotton thread. On another occasion j one of the little girls froze her'fing- ers -while holding a lantern for her father. Upon making a, complaint he hit his child over the fingers with a rope. To further prove that Mr. Sal- lehbach -was possessed of an ungov- ernable temper, evidence was given that, upon one cold winter's night he turned his wife out of the house and forced her to spend the night in the stable, even refusing to give her a Special Attention!

Shortly after he left j Cardston and came to Brant. The justices, upon hearing the evi-; dence, decided to issue an order toi Mr. Chadwick to keep the children permanently, Mr. Chadwick stated! that Mr. Salienbach's movements j would be watched closely in the fu-j ture and if the state of affairs would improve in the Sallenbach home that probably the two eldest boys would J be allowed to return to their home. In extenuation of his actions, Mr. j i Sallenbach acknowledged that he had i a quick temper, but having a large family and not being possessed with much of the world's goods, he was unable at all times to give them the clothes or food they required, but he tried to do the best he could. When, not in a temper he was an indulgent father and at the court he displayed evidence that he bore considerable love for his family and promised that if the children were returned to his fold he would protect them as a fa- ther should. In explanation of his giving horse meat to his children he said that the horse was shot by himself and that it had not died a natural death. Born in Switzerland, he remarked that the J eating of horse flesh was not an un- usual thing and that he had frequent- ly enjoyed horse meat for many meals. Upon the arrival of the children at Calgary, they were medically exam- ined and were found, to be covered with vermin and suiTering from a dis- ease which was r.o doubt caused by the impure food partaken of by the children while at home.
