In the task of replacing- this grea1 factor In the advancement of our chll dren none have shown greater luteres than the Daughters of the Empire, and this energetic organization, whose head is one of our ex-teachers, Mrs V. V. Christie, has presented a verj valuable set of books to our school "The Book of Knowledge" in 20 vol- umes. Other organizations mighl well follow this good lead and heli; to replace our school library. School Athletics The new gymnasium is one of the busiest spots at our new school. Two basketball leagues have been formed, a public school, two teams, and a high school, three teams. The boys are rounding into good form rapidly and enjoying tho sport immensely. The first league game of the High school was played between XI and X about a week ago aim resulted in the score of 2a to 14 in favor of Grade XT. Last Friday tne school' league game was played off between X and IX, the victory going to the X Grade, The public school first game was played on Wednesday jsst between vn and VIII, and resulted in a win for the last named grade. A tennis league is also being form- ed and several new games to tho young folks are being introduced, in- door hockey and baseball, with sev- eral others. Each room in the lower grades lias a period the gymnasium Just! as they might have a lesson in any other branch of. the school work. The larger pupils get a period three times a week. The. evenings are occupied by Uie Athletic association by which a basketball .league has been formed with four competing teams: The Busi- ness Men, the1 Farmers, the Profes- sional men, and the scrubs. Thus good use is made of our school's big gym all the hours o[ the ordinary day. All parents and citizens should visit it and thus be able to appreciate the good it is doing all classes.

He came to Magratli 1002 and at mice engaged In farming, which occupation he has pursued ever since. He has served a term on the old council and during the last six months was deputy mayor. Mr. fien- niou has always taken a livo interest in the municipal, business and social affairs of the town and while his de- termined stand and outspokenness on certain subjects have brought down the displeasure of a particular cle- ment he will undoubtedly make one of the best mayors who has yet occu- pied the chair. i The contest for a place on the cotui-i 11 was also close. The votes run as 'ollows: Retiring Mayor .1. B. Ririej 79, B. Plugree Tanner Harold' >Voods 69, Joseph Evans 55 and Hen- ry UilHer 47.

One of tiie most interesting cases relating to the value or lack of value j oC a caveat was finished Friday after- noon in the appellate division of the supreme court at Calgary. John Stein- brecker, whose financial transactions are already well known in local, eir- I cles, was at the root of He sold land in the province to Walter Keubler and Carl Brunner amounting to in price. the Clrdt payment he' sold out his interest to.A. It. Grace of Lethbridge. Grace filed a caveat against the property in the 'land titles office, but did not noti- fy the purchasers that he was the now owner; of the land. When the pur- chasers were ready to' pay, they turn- ed over the money to Steinbrecker, thinking he was still the owner. He did not enlighten their ignorance, and, as a special inducement to their ready payment, offered, it is to accept S12.000 instead of The deal was closed. Steinbrecker is; said to have pocketed the money, and. forthwith disappeared, leaving Grace' without a cent of the funds justly due him. At the initial trial of the case be-! fore Chief Justice Harvey, Grace! sought to the money from; Keubler and Bruimer which they had wrongly paid to Steinbrecker, but the chief justice ruled that Grace should have notifed the purchasers of the :hange in ownership, as well as filing the caveat. The ;appeal is by Grace from that decision. The solicitors acting in. the case were O M Biggar, K G and A. H. Clarke. Stelnbracker is nowhere to be found, so that no claims filed against him are considered of value. Judgment reserved.
