Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 7, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT THE LETHBIUnr.R. DAILY HERALD TllimSDAY, DECKMBIiK 7, IVEKY il OF COAL Only Six Curs in Past "Saul, King of j Splendidly Rendered (SpC'-iuI to the Hei'nliN Cardston. Dec. three linns here handling coal have had dinlculty in getting coal here for the past month. Only about six cars of do- mestic coal hava been received and a few cars of briquettes in the month preceding the strike, so that unless there is some relief soon, matters be serious. Some steam coal has come in. so that the school and town lighting plant have kept going thus far. Two local mines, one at Beazer rc-f cently opened by Frank May. and one at Boundary Creek operated last year. by Crawford Bros., have been a great boon to the settlers south, ami some of the townspeople as well. Coal is costing S4 per ton at those mines ami tbey are from 12 to 16 miles distant. Fire Scare What might have been a disastrous j Maze occurred at about 11 o'clock; From causes unknown, hut which look suspicious, the hay at 7 E Harris' small barn was discover-; eil burning beautifully by Mrs. Burton, j next door neighbor. The fire whistle brought out ai crowd and the hose wagon, and the; blaze was soon under control with i only a nominal loss, under one him-! ured dollars. As the wind was from, the west, had the fire not been dis-; covered in its early stage, the there! would have been very serious results" a? this is the most thickly built up; block of residences in the town and numerous houses and barns would; have been in the path of the fire. A Superior Production On Friday and Saturday evenings the -Uberia Stake Theatrical company' presented the sacred opera "Saul.; King of Israel." The attendance was i only fair iiie first evening, while the! rendition musically was said to be erior to that of Saturday night. How-j evgr Was there on the last evening" and all expressions heard seemed to indicate criticism of a very favorable kind. The title role was very creditably bandied by Mr. Arthur L. Smith, basso., "David" was impersonated by Mr. A. i B Cure, whose singing is nl-l ways pleasing and accurate. As "Sam-1 Mr. Jno. S. Smith ibaritone) hail j a most striking makeup and his sing-' ing was sood. Mr. Scott B. Brown. (tenor) as Jonathan, was a very at- j ceptable character and sustained the; part carefully. The ladies of course acquitted them- selves in the musical renditions even i better than the gentlemen. As Mich- nl. Saul's daughter. Miss Eliza Hart- ley (alto) carried away tile honors of the evening-and while she is well known to Cardston audiences, never appeared to better advantage than in this presentation. Mis Luella Steed (soprano) was a charming Abigal, but had less oppor- mnitj- than in some roles. In the Witches' scene, Miss Winona Brown (cotitralto) and her'four aids did some fine work and won hearty applause. The chorus' work" was excellent its the soldiers, heralds, and guards with the dancing damsels and general at- tendants seemed even better prepar- ed than some of the principals. The costuming and stage effects left little to he desired and it is putting it mild- ly to say that the majority of those witnessing the performance were very agreeably surprised by the high class work of the local talent. It is to he regretted that the large numbers required Jn the chorus work makes travelling to neighboring towns difficult, as the production outclasses any of the road companies ever com- ing into our local towns. It is rumored that the performance will be repeated at Aetna nest Friday night as the .stage there -is large enough to accommodate the numbers participating. To Mr. J. F. Layne as musical dir- ector and his assistants, Messrs. A: L. Smith, Jno. S. Smith, W. T. Meridew, and others, great credit is due for the so well done.

The robbers were committed for trial on Tuesday at Medicine Hat. It is just possible that the trial will be held in Lethbridge if a change in venue can lie sacurfid, as Letljjmdge is much more convenient for Manyberries wit- nessfjs than Medicine Hat. Some further: details of the Many- berries seiisation have been received by the Herald. It appears that the two robbers on arriving in Manyber- rtes last Saturday "-morning went to the banlit carrying their famous black bag, and introduced themselves as representatives of .f. L. Peacock, the well known cattle and sheen rancher of and .Medicine Hat. They said they had about with them they wisher! to deposit in. the fcank untiPilomlny as they were go- ing to cattle through the district.
