The brick fell with such force that it caused the plaster on the ceiling in the room below to fall. Miss Ena McLeay, who has been ill for some weeks, was occupying this room and the plaster fell on her body but fortunately did not strike her head.

Co. private car, 'Lethbridge," which was here a few weeks ago, was built at the C. P. R. shops, Montreal.

The South Alberta Land and Colonization Company had a remarkably successful year, as theii-financial statement, published in another column, evidences. This company owns a fine tract of land east of Leavings, and through their efforts a good deal of it has been settled upon by enterprising farmers. The shareholders decided to reduce the number of directors from seven to five, and these were elected: Messrs. Livingstone, Bruce, Simmons, Rooney and Dr. Mc-Clure The directors electetl Dr. McClure, president; W. C. Simmons, vice-president and manager; and Dr. Cragg, secretary. A thing that is very greatly needed in conjunction- with the Gait hospital is a small building thai would serve as a combined morgue and chapwii a short time ago from Nortli Dakota, The plans show two eottagf": and a double house, in one of which Mr, Ingram will live, the others being held for tenants. These residences willadd greatly to that section of the tomi. An iuiiiiedJate necessity is !he (extension of the water and S(nvernge system along Crabb sti'eef to C'onrt-land. We understand that an ap-pliealion for such an extension is ikely lo lie made to the town authorities. Mr. Ingram iiii.s ev(?ry confidence in the future uf the Lethbridge district, and lias shown his faith by purchasing irrigation lands, and by puttiu.g his money in town property.
