DOWN british government rushes significant" bill through the commons' London, Feb. 13.-Tie British parliament is rtrthtng through an aerial navigation BUI* .which, will expose any foreign airship travelling over England to the risk of 'being fltred upon, under certain specified conditions, al-though.-the (state of war may nofcesiat between this country and that whence the airship had flown. No secret-Is made ot the jfadti that the bill Is: designed to check; German exploits of thlB kind.v For several months past at intervals; there have been reports ofr mysterious flights",c* airships over.; one or other. iipsfftsN of the country, and the introduction of the new measure coupled with/a governmental request :�' to the ^opposition not to delay Its progress, through parliament is taken to' mean that the government has awakened'to the fact that foreign airships have actually flown over English territory. Col. Seeley,.minister of war; introduced the bill last Friday. It prohibits the passage of air craft over certain areas, or If the government deems it necessary over the whole coast line of the-klngdom and adjacent territorial. waters.. If any aerial vessel infringes this, law proper officers shall be entitled; 'after giving a prescribed warning: signal-to fire at, or into any such air craft and use any and every other means, to prevent an infraction of the law.  This bill will become law before many days, having.passed its.second reading -on . Monday; Its remaining stagea^lnt the- .Commons were pasfred in a singly session on Tuesday.

Following are some of the answers received: The First Received The-show window all Lethbridge merchants use is: The Lethbridge Herald's Advertising Column. .7. WISHART, ^ 138 18th St. N. He Knows The merchants use the Herald for the show window. PAUL MATS ON, 520 12th St. C N. Merchants Are Wise Dear Editor:-I think all the successful merchants of this city uee the Lethbridge Daily Herald as their shop window. I think this is a very wise thing because everybody gets the Herald to see all the news every day, and so by advertising in the Lethbridge Herald they let everyone see what they have to sell cheap. DORIS STITT, Age 10. Everyone Looks In It The window provided to advertisers by the columns of the Lethbridge Herald, because everybody looks in it.  MELVIN BOLDERSON, 323''l6th St. N. The Herald of Course What kind of show window do all Lethbridge merchants use? The Lethbridge Herald is the show window. , , PHIL OTT, , 320 7th St. S. Is Eagerly Read,, All progressive merchants believe in going after business instead of waiting for it to come to them. The way to do this is to advertise. The Lethlrrldge merchants all ;use the. ".'show window" aff^r^cd' by the Leth-1 bridge Daily Herald, because that paper goes into every home, and the merchants have proved that'the advertising news is eagerly read by all the thrifty housewives. -EDITH IHINN, "' 125 20th St. N. - T! IS AT LYTTLETON, N.Z. OFFICERS HAVE DIARIES OF DEAD HEROES WHICH WILL BE GIVEN TO FAMILIES L ; Unity, Sask., Feb. 13.-Mrs. Anton Christianson, wife of a Norwegian farmer, living 12 miles south-west of Unity, was yesterday shot and fatally-wounded, and her daughter, Annie brutally beaten with a flat iron by Lars Peterson, a young Scandinavian who resides on the next quarter section. Jealousy was the cause. Two bullets took effect in the head oK the older woman and her life is only a question of a few hours. The girl, though terribly injured, will, It is thought, recover. Peterson is still at large, but the Mounted police are hard on his trail and his capture is expected shortly, especially as he is without money and the entire district , is alarmed ami on the lookout for him; Wellington, N. 7,,, Feb. 13.-The Scott Antarctic expedition ship, the Terra Nova, was berthed at Lyttleton this morning. Commander E, R. (}. Evans, R. N., who was pn board, spoke briefly of the tragedy near the South Pole. He said the gallautry of Captain Scott and the men with him had never been surpassed, but the survivors were not disposed to advertise themselves at the expense of the others. His ship's party, on nearihg Cape Evans, had arranged to give Capt. Scott and his comrades a great ovation. Accommodation was made ready and luxuries were brought up from the stores. The ship steamed easily to her winter Quarters and anchored a quarter of a mile off shore, with colors flying. A large party 'ashore cheered and the ship's company responded. Commander Evans identified Lieut. Campbell. As Commander Scott could not be discovered in the group, Evans then shouted: "Are you all well?" Campbell .replied: "The southern party reached thd pole on the 18th of January last year, bub all were lost on the way back. We have their re-cords." The ship brought back every writ-1 ten record of the southern party including the private diaries oi Scott, Bowers, Wilson, Oates and Evens. These will not he published at once, but will first be handed to the dead men's relatives. Dr. Nansen suggests that Captain Scott and his party were attacked by scurvy. He says: "I believe Scott's calculations were correct, and had he only adverse weather to contend with, would have been back with all his. men safe and sound, but the treacherous enemy which defeated them was surely scurvy, of which he had no suspicion, and therefore could not take it into his calculations. When it was stated that Petty Officer Evans was ill, this cannot have been anything but scurvy, -and for several days they had to take him with them, until at last he �"�wi from concussion of the brain, which a weak man suffering might easily get when descending a glacier. "Then Captain Oates' illness must surely have been scurvy, also frost bitten hand's and feet are just what scurvy patients are so liable to, because the circulation is impaired and tt is not improbable, either, that Captain Scott and others were suffering from ^incipient scurvy .and their physical powers thus reduced without they themselves being aware of it. "Thus this appears to have been the real enemy, but one which Scott could not know of and of which there could he no means of combating after having once* left winter quarters." ' New Material London, Feb. .13.-A new material for the production of paper was suggested at the Royal Society of Arts last night. It was stated that if a plant named heydchium coronarium, which is a nativo.of India, were cultivated over vast tropical or semi-tropical spaces, mankind should have no need to cut down the forests and make them into paper. > The forests, if; was said, could go on fulfilling their natural purpose and newsapers could be printed on the substance which looked just like what Is now culled paper., Nansen's Tribute London, Feb. 13.-The Daily Mail publishes �.n interview its Christiania correspondent had with Dr. Frledtjof Nansen, who was deeply moved at the news of Captain Scott's death. "It is a terrible calamity," said Dr. Nansen, "and an immense loss to Elngland and the whole world.
