The teller one Whitfield Lancaster, proprietor of the Westminster rink, who on ac- count of his ancestors' connection Wars of the ftoses, ia some- times known as "Sir Whitfield Lan- caster, Bart." Last night after church Sir Whit- field took a survey of the miniature which marked the spot within his rink whera once had been solid ice in the days of the good Canadian winter. It, was not a pleasant sight arid the heart of the bold knight was sad. Suddenly, however, he saw some- thing floating in. the water.

Editor "The i Lethbridjje. j Dear a citizen of Ixjtli- j bridge I have, ia common with mam- i others of tho same opinion, followed i with interest your remarks retarding j tho location of the iTow Court House in the. public square rather than as proposed, on a Crabb Street corner. The trouble is that to some extent in matters of this kind the old saying "Everybody's business is nobody's business" unfortunately holds only too true, and we usually view with something like apathy the erection of public building- or the construc- tion of a public work.

The question now is how that fish got in tbe waters of the rmk. It has not been brought up from the river and it is thought the creature must have come through the water pipes and frozen into the ice. Despite the efforts of.its rescuer the little fish died.
