Cragg as pastor, at the expiration of the latter gentleman's successful pastorale iu Juno next Mr. Melvin has accepted the invita- tion subject to the action of the trans- fer committee and the stationing com- ouittee. According to the ul! the Methodist church, a minister can only bo transferred from one confer- ence to another with the sanction the transfer committee which meets annually. The only difficulty that faces Wesley church in obtaining Mr. iMelvin Is in connection .with tlie transfer but it is hoped that a solu- tion will be found, IEEJTOFALLEN HEV. G. II.

The Mystery Receipt The pivot ou which the Schwartz- 1 Oucrin case hinges is the receipt for Mr. Melvin is a young man of high mortgages executed by Schwartz, Intellectual attainments and for a Ilis wife aml for tno purpose o( number ot years was a professor at obtaining a loan from Ouerin's bank.

Cragg to the London conference will follow his acceptance of a call to the Wing- ham, Ont., Methodist Church. Rev. Mr. Cragg has been for four years pastor of Wesley church, during Schwartz, was lost by the latter anil found some months later. The top j of it is torn, and this, according 'to the carbon copy in possession of Criieriu, is alleged to have borne tho j words Sweet Grass, with tho date I August 25th. and the amount of the liability ot Schwartz to the hank.

Rev. Mr. Crags has also Had an offer from a words do Winnipeg church but is understood to have preferred the Ontario call. E Resume of Case to Date Which Is Taking So Much Time in Court After having occupied the attention of the court for eight days, the Schwartz-CJuerin case was on Friday to Monday morn- Ing. In his opening address Mr. Ben- nett, iu concluding it, referred to tlio lact that in the statement Schwartz Kave Guerin, ou the return of the latter from the rest be had been tak- ing at his old home in Minnesota, his liabilities to his creditors were He referred to the quantity of liquor In the basement of the Farmers and Merchants Bank at Sweet Grass, which Schwartz in his evidence spolco of, stating that this had nothing to do with Guerin or the bank; that the liquor was placed there for safe keep- Ing by the parties to whom it belong- od, and .was removed from the hotel Just before prohibition came into lorce in Montana. The door was re- moved and the aperture bricked up, BO it was impossible for Schwartz or any one. else to have gone down to tho basement. Up to the time of adjournment Mr. Johnston, formerly on the staff of tho Sweot Grass bajik, and now with the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, under examination. His evidence occupied much time as he was taken over all the transactions of Schwartz with the Farmers and Merchants Bank, with the bank books before him. It transpired that in the case ol notes due the bank by Schwartz the mortgages Schwartz. not appear iu the carbon copy, nor is there any sign in the original that thny were Interpolated. The document reads straight ou.' Schwartz disputes that the receipt was signed on August 25th. lie claims that it was signed at Milk River on a date prior to this. He did not, he alleged, notice that in the lift he held the date was mention- ed as August 25th. Case in a Nutshell The case in a nutshell Is that Schwartz claims that the JIG.000 loan for which the mortgages worn given was for the purpose of paying off his creditors and for carrying on his business, and that at the time he was not indebted to the bank. Ouerin, he claims, used the money, which was never given him, for the purposes of clearing oft the indebtedness of Schwartz to tho bank. The creditors got nothing, and Schwartz himself, as ho claims, got nothing. Schwartz claims that in spite- of tho words In She receipt he holds from Ouerin, that the mortgages were to be returned if no loan -was obtainable, that C-ueriu procured one R. K. Dunhlozier, pur- porting to be a notary public iu the state of Montana, to certify that Schwartz and his wife took oath be- fore him, whereas in fact the said Dunblozler was not present when the plaintiff nor when his wife signed the affidavits, nor did they ever sweur before him. Schwartz further claims that on the strength of the false affi- davit of Boyce who, as lie alleges, was procured by the defendant Guerin to make an affidavit before a notary public that he was present when the mortgages were signed and executed, and with the false certifi- cate ot Dunblozler, that Guerin did procure the mortgage to be registered in the land titles office of Southern Alberta, when the same should have been returned to him, according to the receipt he held, in the failure, as Schwartz alleges, of his obtaining the loan. These statements the defence denies, and will proceed to try to con- trovert. Ceremony at Morning; Session By Brig.-Gen. Cobbledick Speaker On Sunday next the lablet erected to tho memory or tho men "who con- sidered not their lives dear unto themselves, but freely laid them down for their is to. bo unveiled. This memorial service will be hold III the morning, n seems eminently appropriate that the pastor in tharga of tho church at the outbreak of the war, and who was personally ac- quainted with the majority of the fallen heroes, should be tho preach- er on this occasion.

I jurnflhe GETTING RID OF BRIGHT'S DISEASE SATURDAY HEALTH TALK NO. 19 (By Hyrum Smith, D.C.Ph.C.) The coming on of Bright's Disease Is always gradual. The first Indica- tion, is usually puffiness of the eye- lids, weakness, and general ill health. The urine .is scanty, highly colored, ami contains albumen. As the dropsi- cal condition increases, it interferes respiration and requires the suf- ferer to keep ;iu erect position. This disease is caused by a disturbance of the spinal Joints at what is called "kidney place." In severe cases, such as Bright's disease, tho misalignment of the "kidney place" joint is so great as to cause practically a paralysis of the kidneys. Instead of disposing of waste, the kidneys become inactive, and the wastes poison the body. Chiro- practic spinal adjustments bring back a normal action, of tho kidneys and that means n. disappearance of tho dropsical conditions and a gradual return to health.
