SPEAKING OF AUTOMOBILES Did you ever stop to think how much it means to you to have your car, factory built instead of assembled? Assembled cars are built in a dozen or more factories, and to as many standards. Parts are not always interchangeable and considerable delay is often experienced in obtaining parts. With factory built cars, there is but one standard. Parts are interchangeable and easily obtained. Factory built cars are sold under a guarantee, and in case- of defects, the factory protects you. THE MITCHELL IS A FACTORY BUILT CAR. The next two or three weeks will be busy ones for the local basketball club with art average very likely of two games a week. All final arrangements have been concluded for the game with Raymond on their floor, which will definitely take place next Friday, Feb. 8th. The following Monday the two teams will journey to Tab- er, the first team to play Taber and the 2nd Barnwell. Very likely the Wednesday of the same week will mean a visit to Stirling. The games now on are to settle the Southern Alberta championship, after which inter-city games wilt be arranged between the winners of the south and the Calgary-Edmonton champs. New Ruling Proposed For the Majors-Set Waiver Price of $1,500 Chicago Heavyweight Seems to Have Necessary Punch Chicago.-Chicago admirers of Bill Brennan, the north side lad who had to go east to get a reputation, are jubilant because of a recent victory scored by Brennan over Homer Smith, the Benton Harbor (Mich.) heavyweight. Sam Langford beat Fred Fulton, and, since Brennan beat Smith, his admirers assert Bill is the leading candidate for Jess Willard's crown. One thing Brennan owns that is an asset to any scrapper is a punch. Just about two-thirds of his bout3 have ended in a knockout, and not all of Hrennan's victims have been "dubs.'' Brennan could not plant a knockout on Smith, but he had the big Michigan man on the defensive throughout and slightly groggy at the finish. Smith is by no means a novice in the ring game, although he lacks experience, and Brennan s victory over him places the Chicago scrapper pretty well up in the ranks of the heavies Although he was eager to win, Smith is not dfscouraged over his defeat by Brennan and attributes it to over anxiety, which led him to train j until he became stale. Smith believes he can beat Brennan if given another chance, and it is probable the men maybe rematcbed. New York, Feb. 4.-Announcement was made Saturday night by Secretary Heydler of the national baseball league that an amendment to its constitution would be offered at the spring meeting of the league on February 12 to make it possible to play double headers any time during the season. Another amendment would be offered to fix a minimum waiver price of $1,500 on any player who is purchased from a minor league or who is a jfree agent when signed. Heretofore the president of the league has been asked to fix the waiver price on such a player when rival clubs were unable to agree on a reasonable price. DE ORA LOST Chicago.

Livestock Alex. Galbraith gave a vivid picture of the beef animal, by the many slides, showing all parts of the animal, and a lecture as to the best way to produce stock for profit, not only in beef, but for the market of every day. The Hog James McCaig, spoke of his favorite! [roll for the years .1914, 1915 and 1916 ! There was a long discussion to decidi whether the 1916 arrears should b� included in the sale but the mayoi pointed out that the legislature would likely pass a uniform tax enforcemeni law for the cities of the province ai the coming session of the legislature which would make it necessary to hol< a tax sale in 1919 to include tax ar rears of 19.17 and 1918, so in his opln ion it would be unwise to leave th< 191G arrears to be included at thai time.

KILDA NEWS (From Our Own Correspondent) St. Kilda, Jan. 28.-Heavy snows are still visiting this district and the cold weather seems to hang on. If the snow helps any for the crops the prairie will surely have a bumper crop in 1918. The G.T.P. Developing Co. had a slight accident on Thursday last when they were pulling on their casing and pulled the machinery all off of the top of the derrick. As luck would, hare-it, there was no one hurt and as they were just about done they considered it was a cheap way of getting the machinery down. The things that fell weighed a little over 4800 pounds and made some smash. J. McTaggart and mother-in-law were business visitors in the city of Lethbridge a few days last week. Mrs. Robt. Fairbanks and son Lawrence gave a most enjoyable card party and dance at their home on Jan. 18, 191S. A most delicious supper was served at 12 o'clock and everybody reported a good time. The Deer Creek local U.F.A. of this district are preparing to kill off all the gophers here next summer by ordering gopher poison so anybody in need of Kill-'em-quick, better order early, through Mr. G. H. Ingle. The Farmers Union dance given on Friday night Jan. 25th proved a success in every way and all reported a good time. Music was furnished by the local musicians of the district. 3.
