Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 19, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta MONDAY,; FEBRUARY -19, 1917 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE Sansom and Ellison are Anxious { '�' '' v� 4* 4* ' /' *^* 4* 4* Here is a Good Chance/ for a Promoter TO-DAY'S Sport Summary GUV SANSOM of Conrad, Montana, who is now wrestling in-Saskatchewan. He wants to meet Jack Ellison ot Cardston. Who will stage the bout?-, / .'r *  * 0-+  * but they are believed to. be those of Fred Dase, and his wife and wife's sister. , The night before.the fire it,is hnown..that there we're, six people in the hojise; Mr. and Mrs. Fred Dase and their two little girls, Elsie 'and Elma, aged six years and one year, and Minnie Tankratz and her little boy Albert, aged two years. As there were no'tracks in the snow when the fire was first discovered it is feared that all the above people lost their lives in the fire as the children and the two women were sleeping up stairs and the little ones were too young to help themselves. ' It appears, that Minnie Tankratz, who resides with her brother-in-law Ed. Dase a few miles further south, on the day before the fire drove into | town but on account of the heavy s^ow storm she apparently decided to stay with her sister over night. The fire evidently started between four-thirty and"1 five-thirty in the morning as a farmer living about seven miles away saw a fire then, but thinking it was \spmebody burning some straw paid no.attention to it and it was not until, about eleven-thirty in the morning when another farmer was driving by the place that it was discovered. There is a rumor around town that there was about four thousand dollars iii'cash in the house but nobody has been able to verify it so far. The finding of the charred remains told its own story. The family were evidently trapped completely by the fire which started from an over-heaf-ett stove, and made such quick headway' i that the family were probably suffocated by the smoke and had no chance to escape. FriSd>:*I>ase came to Taber several y.ear|i^fgoit and returned to Germany sometime later to bring out his"-wife to .this country and they have, both resided here for the past five or.six years. , 'The Bulldogs Arc Coming I TO KILL PAIN WITHOUT SLEEP Toronto, Ont., Feb. 17.-Superintendent Clarke, of the Toronto General hospital, states that Dr. James E. Cotton of the staff of that institution, has invented a valuable anaesthetic in the form of a new type of ether, odorless and non-irritating, which has been used at the hospital for some time. A combination of nitrous oxide gas and oxygen gives the same results, but is not nearly so convenient. The anaesthetic discovered by Dr. Cotton affords anaesthesia without sleep, although sleep is induced by more liberal application and without harmful effects. No after nausea is caused and patients are able to walk home a few minutes after an operation. It Can (be manufactured in commercial quantities very easily. In' the case of a girl who was suffering intensely from severe burns the patient was able to carry on conversation quite insensible to pain while her injuries were being dressed.

CAMS TO THE DOOR There seems to be little opposition to (the proposal that the city raise by debenture the sum of $48,000 for the purpose of clearing Up the Y. M. C. A, indebtedness to the sinking fund. The general opinion among ratepayers seems to be that the scheme . would make the best out of a bad job. The Y owes the sinking fund now $46,500, with very little hope of paying even the interest on the money, let alone reducing the principal. Under the latest proposal the amount needed annually to pay off the interest and a proportion of the principal would be $3487, or only about $200 more than is required now to pay the interest to the sinking fund., Mayor Hardie is quite satisfied that the Y building. could be used to advantage as city offices. While it is true that, at present, the city is paying only $125 per month for its offices in the Donnan block, the lease is only a year-to-year affair, and the city cannot hope to keep the premises at such a low rental with business conditions improving. It the offices are moved to the Y a contract would be made with the board of directors, and the city would be definitely assured that the first charge on the building would be the annual instalment to meet the debentures. Dormitory rentals at present are bringing in about $7000 per annum, so that with the dormitories, the gymnasium and the swimming pool, the mayor can see no reason why the association should not be able to do most of1 the work it is doing at present, while as an added asset it would have the rental paid by the city for the offices. The scheme is being thoroughly discussed by the ratepayers, who are anxious to secure complete details of the plan. It is being pointed out that in Saskatoon the city was forced to take over the Y for similar reasons ! to those which exist here, but in the case of the Saskatchewan city the building was turned over to the Military Hospitals Commission as a hos-. pital, and the revenue derived therefrom will be very much less than can ' be counted on if the proposed plan to i be followed here is adopted. lated without shame greater "than that involved in an affront ' to our government directly. Nevertheless, the Turks broke the seal of the American government upon the Frenph consulate at Beirut, and ravaged the archives that were under the solemn protection of the United'States. Out of those files they secured the names of various persons in Syria, cspecially leaders in the Maronite church, and straightway executed them as having been In correspondence with an enemy country. The American flag was not big enough to shelter those men, among them the most' enlightened and influential. citizens ot the Lebanon."
