Every curler Is an- xious to get down to the busy art of playing his stones on the ice, and thus .prepare for the honspiels to be held early in the new year. The cou-ncil will have the street pavement or covering to face as the continued breezes.with the light frost tends to loosen the .surface of the streets in their present condi- tion. It will no doubt carry out TUayor Stcduian's idea of an asphalt covering which used without street covering at present will make prac- tically an everlasting job. The new McDonnell block is being occupied, the ground floor contains tho K. A. Y. realty ofllce, on the east side, with J. T. Doney in ..the .west half. W. M. Campbell will occupy the spacious offices over the entire block, except one suite already taken by the A. P. Grady agency.. Thus the build- ing of this block will be a very pro- fltablo one to the owner. The C. P. R. Will during the coming season straighten the -line running north to Calgary by taking off several curves, also the air line west to the ijroiv's Nest. .Much interest is again being taken In tho oil fields lying west and south of Macleod. Tile new promoters have been moving very quietly but will be ready for work as soon as their ap- paratus is received, and freighted to the grounds.

THREE CRIMES IN CALGARY FOR WHICH NO PENALTY IS PAID Calgary, Dec. what were CO-OPEI STARTED IN Ktimonion. Alia.. Dec.

J. A. MacDougall, formerly head of a fanners' co-operative .store at QBklwln, is manager. The oth- er directors are: Harry ISell, Namuyo, president; Ft. P. GUewell, Clover Bar. vice-president; P. C. Peterson, Wetas- kiwin, organizer: C. MC'LaugulSn, Car- diff, secretary; Henry Wilford, Ed- monton. Mr. ..MacDougall announces that all products of the farm will be sold at farmers' prices, based on a fair pro-fit for labor and capital Invested, also that it is planned to use the branches to collect farm products for quick dispatch to the central .distributing point in Edmonton, and where the shareholders and others can obtain staple commodities at reasonable pric- es. The list of stockholders contains the names of farmers i-n the Edmonton dlstric-t. "The co-operative scheme is not to be confined solely to the Mr. MacDougall added. "Steps be taken in the near future to secure the co-operation of the trade unions of Edmonton, by their members as shareholders, and giving them "the benefit of the profits derived from the well as the benefit of with the -farmers; "Thirty-three per cent, of the profit wili be set aside to enlarge the busi- ness. -the rest being paid as dividends to shareholders.

Where the shareholders will derive ihe greatest benefit, is in the oppor- tunity ufforded them to sell their pro- ducts and purchase their commodities at prices that do not have to bear large profit to the middleman.

Scarlet fever shows an increase of 20 cases over last year, and It took considerable exertion on the part of the health department to stamp it out. hi measles we had an epidem- ic, 54 cases over the previous year. In fact, in June and July when it was at its height, I almosi despaired of controlling' it. Happily the holidays came tq my aid and before ihe re- opening of the schools fthe disease had disappeared. All contagious diseases are easy of control and easily stamjitd out if tho citizens will only co-operate with the health officials. Small pox, a disease that Is much dreaded, is easily con- trolled despito the fact that It is the most contagious of all. Scarlet fever, simply because people fL-ar it, hardly ever gets beyond bounds, but measles and the other light diseases in which the "patient is but indisposed for-a few days, is a thorn in tfie tlesh of any health department.

Tiio Indian chiefs from the various reserves in tile vicinity delivered the murderers to Mr. Cummiskey under threat their official dignities as chiefs would be cancelled if the out- wove not handed over before tile end of the year. As a result of the pressure, they have been produced at the eleventh hour. Paul and Spintlum, although somewhat emaciated, arc not in such dcplcnble condition as might be ex- pected from the long exposure and hardship, and as they quietly smoked iheir cigars in the walling room of the Ashcroft Hotel, they did not seem like the ilespcrato criminals which they i-sally are. The captives left Ashcroft on the 1.30 train for Kamloops, where they will in all probability await trial at til.; spring assizes.

The stables, cows, cow byros, milk houses and accessories have been re- gularly inspected and show contin- uous improvement. The barns of Messrs. Parry and G.

The unsightly and noxious privies are fast disappearing. Some dwellings, on streets with sewers have riot as yet been connect- ed. -This Is due to the fact that the necessary pipes not obtainable and an extension of time was unavoid able.' The 'regulations re this will be rigidly enforced April 1 next.

In March 3- cases or small pox were discovered and in April 9. Energetic measures were at once taken. A va- cant house in the outskirts was coin- maudered and a strict quarantine put in force. Happily the measures taken proved effective and the disease died a natural death. I wish to thank -tho retiring council for their efforts to place the health department in a position to favorably combat disease. Prior to July last we had' an isolation hospital, 'tis- true. but it was ill the needs or a rapidly growing city and its site at the point was anything hut desirable.

The present building is the mainten- ance building and when the two pa- vilions for patients are constructed, as is planned for the spring; will be in as good a position to cope with contagious diseases as any city of our size in America.

It has cost-money, n lot of money; hut it will relieve us of 'the horrible feeling that we are daily spreading typhoid amongst living on the river below tho city, and'who must-of necessity use river water fct drinking and other domestic purposes. We can also claim that Lethbridge is the most enterprising city of the plains in as 'much as It was the first city in Alberta to establish such a plant.

There are many ways in the citizens can aid the different depart- ments in their efforts and, if ail will but join in and heartily co-operate, our city can easily become the best con- ducted, most beautiful, the cleanest and most sanitary city oi the west.

Stewart, Jos. Chamberlain, ex-prem- ier A. J. Balfour, Prince Arthur of Cbnnaught, and the Marquis of Crowe. The idea of calling a foremost law- yer and politician like Lord Roseberry to whom even a fine channel cross- ing Is a nightmare, und Cham- berlain, the chief apostle of tariff re- form, by the nautical title of captain suggests a limit of Incongruity that is distinctly humorous, and It is hard- ly likely ot course that ftear Admiral Stewart will prefer to join his breth- ren of lower rank when choosing his position on an occasion or ceremony. Premier Asquith, by the way, us- jally wears the uniform of Trinity H'oueo, which is very much like that of an admiral, on ceremonial occas- ions. Of course, in these instances the title is purely one of courtesy, but it will doubtless be appreciated by the less known Trinity masters, whose functions are of the greatest Import- ance, for they are responsible for the maintenance of all lighthouses, and llg-lit ships in the waters of the Brit- ish Isles and for the licensing ot all pilots.
