I'...'. Dr. Gaibraith on Typhoid Fever. [This letter was was received too late for insertion last week.-Ed ] Lethbridge, Alta Dec. 111905. To the Editor of the Herald. Dear Sir.-I desire to present to your readers a few suggestions concerning the prevention of diseases iti the piovince, which it seems to me the new provincial government could very wisely take up at their first session. The imrticular disease to the preventidn of which I desire to call attention is typhoid fever and the particular method of its prevention is the keeping pure of our streams. The investigations of many sanitory commissions and board of health present conclusively the fact that typhoid bacilli are always water-borne, even those found in milk being conveyed to the dairies in the water sujj-ply, and further, that only the most elaborate"? and costly plants are able to entirely eradicate them. At the present time, Mr. Editor, there are fourjor five of our big towns sewage into the rivers upon which they are situated without any attempt to prevent the ful ed'ecf, of the filth being pissed on to tliose who live further, down the stream and it will only take a few years of this sort of thing to make our waterways modified sewers. These towns in some instances take their water sii^jply from the same stream, only higher up, and they are themselves subject to the same contamination that they inflict upon others. A current fallacy that has been impressed upon the public in this connection is the supposition that within a few miles a running stream has the power of purifying itself, and this is perhaps the sand in which ostrich-like we have been hiding our heads, but there is no evidence to show beyond the es-cjipe of odors and the deposit of the heavier parts, that even a long rapid has anything but the slightest eil'ect upon genu life and to trust to such a fallacy for our lealth would be nothing but the veriest folly. reasonable thing to ask that municipalities and others be forbidden to empty sewage into running streams until they have used al' reasonable means of rendering it harmless to those below them. It would of course be necessary to go to some expense to produce this result but the expenditiire would be very trifling in comparison to the result attained and the terrible cost in men and money its neglect entails. The methods of purification that could be applied with compari-tive ease in this part of the world are the septic tank and the sewf farm either together or sejmrately It is not claimed that either of tiiese systems protluce absolutely pure water, but ttiken together it is not too much to say that they destroy practically everything of a bacterial character that is present-ed to them, and the inexpensive and easily worked septic tank does to a very large extent. It is only necessary in conclusion that I should refer to the very much increased percentage of cases of typhoid fever in All)erta during the past few years to justify this appeal for speedy and urgent action before it becomes epidemic with us. I, am, sir, Yours traly, W. S. Gaibraith. UNIQUE INDIAN TIE-UP An Up-to-dete Matrimonial Even Takes Place at the Blood Indian Reserve New Paper tor Edmonton. A. Balmer Wati. a nephew of the late Andrew Patullo, M.P.P,, Woodstock, and son of Slieritf Waft. Brantford, after looking over several points in Alberta, has entered the newspiper field in Edmonton aud is now the publisher of the Saturday News, a weekly paper. It will not only give the news, bnt will make a feature of comment uixm live tojjics. Watt is a good writer and Edmonton will learn very quickly that he can turn out a piper that will be bright and newsy. He used to be editoi- of the Woodstock, Ont., Sentinel-Review. Surprise parties are in style at Raymond, where they discuss tlie Saskatchewan e'.ections after the taffy that is made from Raymond sugar is iiulled. There was much fXDpular interest shown in the marriage at the Blood resen'e village on Wednesday of Young Chief Yellow Tail and Miss Millie Moccasin String, eldest daugher of Old-Fly-Up-The-Creek. The village is built on the north east corner of the Blood Indian reserve, a short drive from Lethbridge, the famous scenic andjjlea-sure resort of Sunny Southern. Gloriously fine weather favored the happy occasion, the sun shining during the moniing with all the warmth and briglitness of a typical Southern Alberta morning The charming bride who looked, even lovelier than usual, is a young lady of singularly attr;;ctive disposition, towards whom the Indians entertain tlie warmest feelings. The bridegroom was educated at the Indian mission, and graduated with high honors as a big drum soloist and also holds several diplomas for broncho steering and other feats of strength. A great crowd assembled at the village church ou Weclnesday, and many were uu able to find room in the interior of of the building. The church had been handsomely decorated witl three festoons of bull pines, form ing an arbor under which the guests walked. In the centre of these fes toons were hung Tipixjrary apples and pine burrs, and at the chance were Oregon grape vines and young popular trees spreading out to the sides of the church. In the unavoidable absence of of the Bishop of Strawberry Can-you,the very Eev. Tarantula .Jake, ot the Copioer King and Paradise Valley Mining Camp, officiated, assisted by Old Mexlicine Snake,-a friend of the family. Black Rabbit and Running Wolf acted as ushers. The sers'ice was fully choral. Four Crown McTavish presiding with the bag uipes. Tall mirl graceful the beautiful bride jjassed into the church through an arch of wild hops and sun flowers, ascending the centre of theaisle,leaning on the arm of her eldest brother, Whistle-Like-The-Wi nd. The anthem, "Are There Any More At Home Like You," was exquisitely rendered by the choir, and the bridesmaids distributed to numerous guests lovely souvenirs of fancy bead work. The bride was beautifully attired, having nickel-plated sateen lx)dice with hanging buckskin sleeves I'aught with weasel tail tassels. There was a gauged yoke and vest of cheap cheese cloth, with rivers of assorted colored bead embroidery in a snow shoe design, finished with weasel tail tassels. The skirt was of full length, gathered and outlined with pink mosquito chiffon opening over a front of gauged chiffon strapped with buckskin string and bead embroidery, and finished with weasel tail tas-sals. The train ,which hmig from her classic shoulders, was of old buffalo robe, a family heirloom, lined with colored cotten tissiie and caught with bows of sheepherder's plaid. Her veil was of bandana silk lace, surmounted with a tiara-shaiJed wreath of Sunny Southern forget-me-nots. She carried a wai-club that had seen service in these hills, and also a lovely shower bouquet of sweet peas and morning glories, The bride's train was borne by her young cousin, Hole-In-The-Blanket, who made a very pretty little figure in a typical Indian buckskin suit, with slathers of bead-work jewerly, a plug hat as big as a bass drum aud a Magrath turkey plume. The four bridesmaids were Miss Sally Two-Kettle, Miss Leaping-Antelop, Miss Stella Big-Moon, and M iss Black-Tomahawk. The y were attired in very pretty picture dime-novel gowns of unsmoked buckskin, the fully gathered skirts of which were trimmetl with rows of mountain goat chiffon, while the bodice had transparent yokes of skim-milk lace, outlined with buffalo chiffon over folds of pine-colored print and a deep lace frill. Elbow sleeves with trout netting lace frills and wool blanket cross belts. They all wore very pietty smoked-tanned, tooth-picked-toes mocca- with an icific 3mg , the sins and white straw hats, advertisement ou the rim. The bridegroom woie a pair of cowboy's stripped, beaded moccasins, bright colored silk stripped skirt and a smile that would melt an iceberg. The bride as she came down tlie aisle on the arm of her husband, in spite of her copper-colorecl complexion, looked *Jme-whfit pale. f The charming bridesmaida| loolt-e
