The ^iffatt JfcMW Wholesale and retail ehsmlsts TELEPHONE NO. 122 Late Andrew Hood. The Herald was in error in the name of the Hillcrest man whose death occurred here. The name was Andrc\v Hood, not Andrew Flood. Deceased came to Lethbrldgo .'13 years ago, and was engaged as a miner for years before taking up farming at Hillcrest. He was a brother-in-law of D. H. McKay of Lethbrldgo. The body was sent to Hillcrest for interment. additional work to get tho system properly under way. There were medical boards to be appointed, there were the tribunals to be selected for tho purpose of hearing claims for exemption, there were., the- countless forms to be printed, and tho appointment of the officers to tho various districts. The Probable System. In Franco, as in other countries* where conscription ; dates from Uto pre-war period, a call was sent out for the manhood of the nation which was horn in a certain year, everyone to present himself within a certain time Threshers and Canned Goods. The ban on canned goods is hitting the threshing crews hard according to Mr. Glover of Vulcan, who was in the city yesterday. Threshing crews are moving about continually and it is not always possible to got fresh fruits or vegetables, so that -they aro practically forced to use canned goods. Mr. Glover has wired the government at Ottawa setting forth the facts, and asking that the restrictions be removed in this case. PROBABLE SYSTEM to the tribunal of the district in which ho resided tinder a penalty of bolng considered a deserter, for on the call being made under the republic law tho men called auto'mntiea'.ly became soldiers, and were therefore liable to military law. Perhaps with the establishment of the local tribunals, the. same rule will apply, so that the military will bo relieved of all civic worries and tho man who does not answer the call of the Dominion Immediately becomes a deserter, and can be dealt with accordingly. FOREST FIRE CRISIS IS PAST AT FERNIE Fernie, B. C, Aug. 2S.-The forest fire in this territory for the past ten days has been very satisfactory as rains greatly minimized the danger by creating conditions unfavorable to rapid progress of new fires and practically extinguishing all old fires. Those conversant with conditions believe the crisis has passed for this season but another prolonged hot spell would soon result in former dangerous condition being restored. THRESHING AT BURDETT. Calgary, Aug. 2'j.-No orders or arrangements as to conscription have come through to the commander of military district No. 13, Col. G. Mac-Donald, that officer announced yesterday over the phone, in response to a request as to whether he had been notified of the probable organization that will be set moving to.handle the first draft called tip. The colonel said he, had had no instructions whatever as to procedure to bo followed, and that no orders had been issued as to making ready for examining the conscripts. It is possible that the military headquarters at Ottawa have a thoroughly efficient system cut and dried for tho purpose by this time, as moBt war offices have the plans ready for the introduction of the system before the parliaments come round to the point of agreeing to tho principle. The ages have been published at which tho various drafts will be called up, and there is likely to be very little alteration In the apportionment of tho classes now that tho bill is passed. Lord Derby's scheme helped greatly tho organization that followed the introduction-of conscription in the old country, but then it took months of Fall Term Opening DAY'SCHOOL-Tuesday, September 4th.
