No rca-fcon'.w&s given for these doubts, but [they were freely bruited abroad..... ; Mrs. Scott left London five � weeks ago for Now- Zealand to �meet her The last direct w.orcl received from Captain Scott himself was brought ' liy the Commander of the Terra :No\'a. from the 'southern � ice regions when' she returned ;to Akaroa, N. Z., on March 31, last year. The brief message was in Captain Scott's own hand-writing and said : "I am remaining in the Antarctic for another winter, in order to continue and coru-r pi etc my work.". ..... Captain Scott hail shortly before sent back word irom his base at Mc-Murdo Sound, which showed that on .January 3, ,1912, he had reached a point .150 miles from, the pole, and was advancing toward his destination. .......... On Return Trip The despatch from Oamam, N. Ji., this morning shows that in 15 davs lie covered the remaining 150 miles, having travelled at the ratp, of ten miles ,a day. It was on Ins return that he and his party were overwhelmed bv one of'the terrific blizzards so prevalent in the Antarctic region.

WHERE'S THE MISSING FUND Somewhere, somehow, sometime, flomebody in the employ -oi' the. city overlooked something in the shape of a charge for local Improvements done during the past-five years. Up to date no one has found it, and the city has-lost some rnoney,- to locate which -all eudeav.ofs.have, been in vain. Mayor-Hardie mentioned it for tho iirat time ,at the city odunoil meet ing a couple of. days ago. Money has been paid out somewhere,,for which their is no accounting. Haw jnuch it it, or'hbwj loiig-out'staiiding it may be, tho Mayor refused to say this morning, as ho,, is"-very reticent on the subject.Asked.-'At* iU would be re-. vealed on the annual audit he said he did not believe it would.. It does not seem to be anybody's fauljt. It .'.is an oversight, that whereby Calgary received . a few days ago ,a chetiue for over $6,000, overpaid the firm of Gorman, Clancy: &�' Grindle^y, for street car rails. The mayor intimated this morning that every effort w.tfuld be made to find the lost'sum, as.,it is probably in oversight in ichavgirjg- frontages 'i?or either sidewalks ant},- bQUlovards.1 7.11 any taxpayer has n. -nice /sidewalk, or boulevard in front of', his reflidejice'for which he: had paid iijOtliing;vthe-mayor would be pleased to/make'his:aciiuairi-tauco.

All the incorporators are employed in the Winnipeg office of Campbell, Pitblado Company, solicitors for the Canadian Swift' Co., who1 are rapidly coming to the fore in the packing and meat business of the west. Their large Alberta plant is in Edmonton and employs-several hundred men; Last season, C. Roy Strotz, the Canadian manager of the firm, spent several days in Lethbndge/ and on all his visits intimated that the company might erect a cold storage .warehouse here. To this end a sit of two .lots was purchased on Second avenue S. He also intimated that a second Alberta packing plant might be established here within a few years, provided the farmers of Southern Alberta would supply the cattle, pork and mutton. It was on his suggestion that the Board of Trade inaugurated its camaign for mixed farming throughout the south. No other reason can be given for the above incorporators entering the sold storage business than that they are secretely preparing for a Swift invasion of the south.
