' CALGARY, Dec. 3.-Strong exception to the bringing into force ot prohibition in the province of Alberta, is voiced by Charles Bell in a letter addressed by his solicitors, Barron. Barron and Hellman, to the secretary of state for Canada. In it, it Is declared that having regard to section 153 Of the Canada Temperance Act properly InteiTjreted and results in the electoral of Alberta, the prohibition could not be declared for the reason that two of the districts, east and west Edmonton went wet. The argument in favor of this Is that It is clear the intention of the act is to permit each district to accept or rc.1ect for itself the prohibition contained in part two of tlie said act. -.--. :-5?t:a^ MANITOBA APPROVES THE ALBERTA PJ.AN CITY AND DISTRICT Living alone, north of the village ot Vienna, Robt.

In the night's service before a crowded audience^ Sister Swanson spoke with powerful effect on the Bible subject. Her words brought conviction to the hearts of ail present. In all the meetings in which our dear christian friends' have .spoken there were good practical results for the service of Jesus Christ. The future of these consecrated young evangelists will bring a great harvest of souls into the kingdom of God.-Contributed. The Christian Church Mission The mission being conducted at present in the Christian church by the pastor, Rev. Jos. J. Pranklyn, has attracted satisfactory congregations throughout the week. There is an awakenei interest in the teachings of the Bible. The spirit ot enquiry is apparent. During a Bible study on the five N. .T. Baptisms the missionary stated that the Bible wag not a mystery, a secret, or a connundrum, not a puzzle for wise' heads, but a guide for wayfaring feet. It was the supreme duty of the religious teacher to rightly divide the Bible so that it > may be read intelligently and to l\ar-' monize the Book with itself. The need of the day, said the speaker, was not so much for sermons and platitudes, but a re-study of the Scrip-1 tures, plain every day expositions of j holy writ. The mission will be continued this ^'ftVenlng when the story ot the "Penitjgnt Thief" will form the basis of i;he.|i|daress.
