His name is A. W. Light, and lie has many years' experience at the creamery business, and furnished excellent testimonials as to his ability. He has carried off medals for his butter, and in a conversation said that the Magrath plant was capable of putting out a product second to none in the Dominion. He is getting the cream in line now* and making all preliminary arrangements looking to the opening of the plant at an early date. Many farmers residing in Stirling and Raymond are anxious to ship their cream to this point, and it is very probable that this wish will "be gratified as Mr. Light says he can handle all the fa-rmers can provide. Special rates have been secured; for the transportation of cream from the railway company, so that the plan is very-feasible. The officers of the association aiin to issue-their patrons checks every two-\veeks, believing that this -will serve'to encourage them. They have sound financial backing, and are confident that they will build upv aj flourishing business. Oid Folks Entertained The Old Folks' committee entertained in right royal style all resi-. . dents of the: town and district over si-sty years'of age, wido'w.s, widowers, orphans and .many specially invited guests at the Electric Theatre yesterday. No discrimination was made as to creed or nationality, and the old veterans congregated in great numbers as honor guests. They were feasted sumptuously at noon, after which a splendid program was rmd- and speeches. The commendsble affair was concluded by a first class picture show, Manager Godfrey showing a very fine series of films, specially secured for the occasion. This is a most praiseworthy movement and is observed throughout the whole Mormon church, although it is not sectarian in character. Magrath has a particularly live committee, and they hold two entertainments annually, one indoors in the winter and one in the summer at Carter's magnificent grove west of town. Tliey are , always wonderful successes and the hearts of all rejoice to overflowing* A, Mercer is committee chairman and he is assisted by a number of live energetic ladles and gentlemen, who are masters at the art of entertaining. Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Rasmussen have returned home after a most enjoyable visit to the States. They report cold weather in the south. C. Christian Jensen, late president of the Saxnoan mission of the Mormon church, will arrive home from San Francisco Saturday, after spending two years in the South Sea Islands. Ill health was the cause of tris early return from the mission field. :. Berlin, Feb. 7.-All Germany is laughing homericaliy over the . full dress parade oi the Strassburg Garrison, on the strength qt a bogus telegram announcing a visit by t)ie Kaiser. The Kopeir.ck cobbler has been outdone. Every despatch from Strassburg adds amusing details. The perpetrator oi the hoax,. August WoKer, turns out to be an ex-sergeant, 35 years of age. He was recently discharged from the colors on account of alleged defalcations. Ho escaped punishment on the ground that he was mentally deficient, but 1-..V. UttlM1 .... , sun. ELECTRICAL MEN GET MORE PAY Peterboro, Out., Feb. 6.-An increase of. ten per cent; is to be given the mechanics of the Canadian General Electric Company, who now receive 30 cents, cr under, an.hour. Tne same inc. ease applies to female help of two years' service, and five psr cent.,when the. service has reached one year. . ne oujecteu iu italic as feeble-minded and bragged that it would not be long before^ he performed a feat which would show his superiors that he was still capable  of wonderous things. Accounts differ regarding the exact manner in which he carried out the hoax. Several versions allege: that the telegram was delivered by' Woltnr himself, disguised as a telegraph messenger, at the headquarters to . the military governor of Strassburg. It is added that it was in cipher. Other versions say it was an open message and sinip!,y read : ' i "Arrive at 12 o'clock. Am coming by motor car and proceeding to the Polygon parade grounds. The entire garrison is to be alarmed. "(Signed) Wilhelm." The-effect- oi the message was electric. Sublime.lv oblivious' to the fact that the Kaiser was at that moment at Kocmgsberg,, one thousand miles away, General Baron Von SgloR-stem, the military governor of Strassburg, acted with the utmost alacrity. Fife and drum corps were sent scurrying through the streets to sound the alarm in order that all officers and soldiers � on leave would hurrv back ; to the barracks with all possible speed. Prince Oscar qt Prussia, the Kaiser's fifth son, who is a student at the Strassburg university,; was naught in the midst of a noonday luncheon. In the meantime tear-lul: scenes were taking place in hundreds of Strassburg homes. The pop-I'lace were seized with fear that mobilization had been ordered . and that was; was imminent and  the sobs of women and children mingled with the clatter of men and hprses hurrying to-headquarters. ' Scarcely two hours after the bogus ROGERSare firm friends of Windsor Table Salt. They like to sell it, because it is pure and clean and good. Ask any grocer {or his best salt, and he will give you Windsor Salt every time. :r Not because it costs more-it does not-r-but because trie grocers know that Windsor Table Salt pleases their customers. The event^ was made still more impressive by'the appearance overhead of the new .Zeppelin army airship to participate !h the parade. As the Kaiser, who is seldom late, failed to "arrive at noon, a rumor presently spread that his majesty was in the airship, and would land from it. After the garrison and a throng, of between 20,000 and 311,000 spectators had waited on the field until two j o'clock, n council of war was held ; between the military governor, the I Viceroy of Alsace-Lorraine, Count, Wcdel, Pi-ince Joachim of Prussia and 1 the chief of police of Strassburg, and lice should hurry hack to town, a distance of two and a half miles, in a motor car antf ask Berlin by telephone if any light could be thrown" upon the1 mysterious non-appearance of the Kaiser. Word came back that his majesty, so far' from being in Alsace-Lorraine or intending to be there, was at the opposite corner of the empire at Koenigsberg. It Dawned on Them When the chief of police returned to the Polygon with the information it finally dawned upon the military authorities that; somebody had been fooled. The military governor then ordered the garrison to execute some minor parade movements, and the': troops afterward marched home. � . Among the spectators was the man Wolter, who caused the parade to be held. He said last night aftsr his arrest, that he watched  the march, out and back. He was evidently pleased with his dav's work. He will probabh be sunt to .an asylum. If placed on trial, he can he convicted on any number of indictments, ranging'"from lese majeste SOLD VALUABLE GAINSBOROUGH TO CHRISTIE'S London, Feb. 6.-The absorbing dispute over the ownership of the Gainsborough portrait. of Lady Anne Burton still occupies Justice Darling's' attention, his court being turned into a veritable'picture gallery in the effort to unravel the mystery. .
