Mr. Bray was born .Tan. I!!, 1S40, in the city of Worcester. England, and obtained his education at Bewdley near that city. At the age of eighteen fired with tho martial spirit of youth ho joined the 10th Mu.^SBrs, of which the Prince of Wales (afterwards King Idward Vll.) was the colonel. For the next twenty-one years Mr. Bray followed the careor of a soldier atid had many stirring adventures in a!! parts of the world, /In 1873 Mr. Bray came to Cana;la and was the man in Toronto to oiri the Mounties. that force being organjized ai that time. His ability and previous experience were soon recognliied � "and he was promoted to the rank of sergeant major with Sam Steele (now Major General Sir Sam Steele) and 1j. K. I'^irtescue, who has isen to be comptroller of the R.K.W. M.P., and the three officers licked tho new force into shape during, the winter of 1873-'74. In 1882 .Air. Bray left the police and engaged in rancing in the Pincher Creek .district, but was called Irom his peaceful vocation by the Rell rebellion In 1885, when lie once more donned the King's uniform as a member of the Rocky Mountain Rangers. After peace was established he once more took up ranchine, which he was engaged in until 1892, when he came to Medicine Hat. ' For the next fe.v yeocs he was employed as a forem'.a �at the Public Works depai-tment of the N. W. T., after which he was appointed as stock inspector iu 1891!, which position he has held ever since. He has always been interested In tUo development of the stbck Industry an-.l as a means of promot'lng it he aided in organizing and' starting the stock ^association ia southern Alberta, of which the first preaident was Mr. J. F. Sanderson and Mr. Bray secretary. The association merged into the RangSiStock Growers' association, and later Into the Western Stock Growers' association. For the first ten years of tlie ^Istence of the' Stock association Mr. Bray Was Its capable and highly appreciated, secretary-treasurer and was largely ; reaponBlble for, the Ciourishing conditions of the stock industry up till 1909, wlien the coming of the homesteader and the introduction of barbed wire on the prairies spelt the doom of the large ranches and heralded the dawn of a new era. Oh N'dv. .16, 187C, at Fort Walsh, ho was joined in marriage with Miss J. McKay,'.who tor forty-two years has walked life's busy way with him. They had thirteen children, of whom ten are still living to congratulate 'him on having exceeded by eight years the allotted span of life, according to the psalmist of ."three score years and ten." � , AT THE EMPRESS Crowds saw "The Slacker" last night at the Empres.'s nnd all were of the opinion that it was one of thp strongest war pictures ever siiowh.^ "The Slacker' will be shown again tonight, and those who did not see it. should not fail to come around and see It. The story is of a >;oung man who absolutely refused to do anythlna in the war until things happened to show him his duty. There is also a sparkling aomcdy, "Her Barebaclc Career," AT THE MAJESTIC The elaborate revival of that most charming of comedy dramas, "Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch," for a coast to coast tour of the larger cities, brouglit up a discussion recently in the Lambs Club of New York^ as to tho r'easoiis for U� gi-eat popularity, for the play has shown a verllity that promises to equal "Rip Van .Winkle," "The Old Homestead," and the "Music Master." It was finally agreed that it ft'as dUe to Its capacity to please more different kinds of people tiian any other play, combinedi with the advertising that it received from the book which .in Bnglish speaking countries was the best seller for from three to five years, and Is still ottered iu every shop that sells books, regardless of howi small the slock may be. "Mrs.- Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch" comes to the Majestic theatre on Friday and iSaturday, with a special matinee oii Saturday attei'noon. Seats are now selling at the boi office. Playfe may come and plays may go, but it will be many a day before an author will succeed In evolving a stage production that is as ta.scinating as Irving Berlin's International s.vnco-patcd musical success "Watch Your AT THE ORPREUM | High class vaudeville is now being shown at the Orpheum together with j a picture program. i AT STARLAND The reproduction of an Algerian village recently Iiuilt in Port L,ee, under tlie direction of Maurice Tourneur for Klsle Ferguson's initial Artcraft picture, "Barbai-y' Sheep," attracted great attention in the New'Jersey "picture" colony. It is the most re-markia>lo duplication ' of architecture and "local color" ever staged for a motion picture. There is even a dilapidated horse car of the very kind to be found In Algeria, where rapid transit is still' In its primitive stages, which .play.s its part in the plctnrlza-tion of Robert Hlcliens' famous story. At the' time these scenes were being filmed thousands of motion . picture "fans" from New York and New Jer-.sey gathered on the roofs of houses and streets around the studio grounds lo view the usual proceedlng.s. The photoplay appears at Starland for the Inst limes tonight. - "Mrs. Wiggs" Says: Somehow I njjver feol the good things in this world belong to me. until I pass 'em on to somebody else. The old saying reads that a woman is as old as she feels, but Fannie Ward, Paramount Slar, amends this statement by substituting the word "thinks" for feels." "Show me the clothes a woman wears and 1 will tell you how old her mind is," soid Jliss Ward. "The first TWO NIGHTS COMMENCING Fri. Feb. 8 Matinee Saturday at 2.30 The United Producing Ce., Ltd..
