WILLIAMSON'S, NORTH LETHBRIDGE and Patterson- McKinnon Agency, building BANK 'HARRY LAUDER Here is a little story about art triumphing over the mere question of dollars, a iiUle story that is interesting because it shows that a man valued his work as something sacred to himself, and all the more interesting because it is a true story of Harry Lauder, whose love of "brass" the paragraphist has delighted to ring the Changes on. Lauder was appearing under William Morris' management at tho New York theatre. Across the street in the Hotel Astor a big organization with nationwide ramifications'was lioldng its annual banquet. One of its promoters told .Morris that the organization wanted Lauder to sing a few songs at'the banquet. He. explained that it would lake but ten [ minutes of the singer's time at the most; that he could jump into a taxi, be taken across the street, and be back in time to go in his turn at the theatre. For these ten minutes the organization was willing to pay $2500.( A vfhlle later Lauder came into Morris' office and he told Lauder of it. "Here's a few easy baubees^for you, Sandy," said Morris, addressing him by the name'he has always used to Harry, "nnd i objections to your making them." "Of course they drink a lot-and have altogether some uproarious time at the dinner," said X'&uder. Mr. Morris said they probably did, and after a moment's thought Laudev turned' down the offer flat. Hfi communicated the comedian's decision to the representative of the organization and the laleer promptly raised the aifte to $3,-500 for the few minutes. The decision was communicated to Lauder. I won't attempt to give his characteristic talk hut this is the gist of it: "You know I take a deep interest in my work. It means a lot to me," said Lauder, "and T couldn't hope to get the attention which i think it deserves from those jolly boys over there. Tho money makes no difference, and much as 1 appreciate the offer 1 couldn't accept it." Then turning to Mrs. Morris, whose interest in charitable work is well, known in New York and to please whom he sings every, year for the insane poor on Ward's Island, Lauder said: "But don't forget that tomorrow I have an engagement to sing to your poor boys and girls down on the Island, and nothing is going to lnterfeie*nvtth that."

IHco I t.5l)o,ooi ::,sun,oin ::.iioo,ooi j'i.:;oo,iiiii STILL IN PROGRESS In supreme court tills morning the case of Van Doru vs C. D. Fellger of Magrath, claiming" damages for dispossessing the plaintiff of the services of his wife, viae still in progress. The case for the plaintiff was finished and the defense was in progress during the morning. Mrs. Van Dorn was on the stand for a long time under' cross-examination by H. Ostium! for the plaintiff and a wordy session ensued. The main point Of the examination centered about the fact that Mrs. Van Dorn, while in the employ of Mr. Fellger, had refused to continue to occupy the bed of the plaintiff, moving to another part of the house. This, she said, was due to the fact that she and her husband were continually fighting. Her evidence indicated that she did not desire to go back to live with her husband and five children, who now reside in Lethbridge. SAMMIES SUCCESSFUL With the American Army in France, Feb. 22.-(By the Associated Press).-In a partol fight, Americans from units under instruction in the famous Chemin Des Dames sector,'killed one German and captured another. One American was slightly wounded. !* * * > '> > * * * : * * �� 5 per com of it is yet to lie shipped. The figures are carefully compiled anil go to show that there has been some overestimating of the. total crop. It lias generally been believed to be about Jo,000,000 bushels aud there were 10.000,nun bushels still to ship, but. this ha.i been about S.iiiHi.oim bu�h-els over the inarlt. The Herald's purpose in gatlieritig these figures was to give, the fanners who are asking whether the embargo on shipments to Fort William would be lifted the information on which they would be able to figure it out for themselves. The government's purpose In enforcing the embargo was to keep enough wheat in the west, to ke�p the mills going until such time as the new crop comes in. flap the west a surplus of wheat, and should it he shipped out'.' So far as the Lethbridge district is concerned, there are about 5,000,oo(i bushels of marketable wheat, iu addi tion to wheat for spring seeding, still In the farmers' hands. The milWng capacity of the mills on the Lethbridge division is about U'OO barrels a day, requiring some 5400 bushels of wheat dally. There are about 150 days until the new crop comes in so that the mills on the division will require about HiiO.ijoo bushels of wheat, to tide them over until the new crop. ThlH leaves 4,000.000 bushels for shipment. Where will it go'.' Is In the Lead If every district in the we:-t had as large a percentage of wheat on hand, the mills of the west could not grind all the wheat in the hands of the farmers and in the elevators, but Lethbridge district is in the lead and from its surplus will very likely have to supply the mills and other districts. The indications, therefore, are that very little of the surplus will go forward to Fort William for shipment overseas hut. will be distributed to various points in the west for milling purposes. This makes very little real j difference to the fanner for the price J is fixed in any' event. What it will jinean, however, is a very gradual movement throughout the summer months. The total Alberta wheat yield last year was 5H,000,000 bushels, estimated, so that the Lethbridge district raised one-third of the total. > * * > WEDDINGGS > }'� �> ? GENERAL ITEMS' ? Seventeen fanners of Claresholm district, decided during one day to go to California. There is no need to comment on the prosperity of the farmers. * * * "Crossing one day to Windsor," The Cricket writes,-"! noticed on a big piece of floating' ice in the distance, the just discernable figure of a dog. i called the attention of one of .the passengers to it and he told me a pathetic tale about the poor follow. It seems some days before men on the boats noticed him. Then he was very near the channel and they made .strenuous efforts to rescue him, but when hi3 deliverers came he refused to %o and snapped and snarled at thelh viciously. Most of the time he. spent staring down in to the icy water until they came to the. conclusion that his master had tried to cross the river on the ice and had gone down, leaving this mourner faithful ta the last. Through my mind passed tho words of a little liioem by St. John Lucas: MY dog The curate thinks you have no soul, I know th�t he has none. But you. Dear friend! whose solemn self-control In our four square, familiar pen, Was pattern to my youth-whose bark Called me in summer dawns to r6vo. Have you gone down into the dark, Where none is welcome, none may love'.' I will not think those good brown eyes Have spent their light of truth so soon But iu some canine Paradise your wraith, i know, rebukes the moon. And quarters every plain'and hill, Seeking its master... .As for me, This prayer at least the Gods fulfil, That when I pass the flood and see-Old Charon by the Stygian coast, Take toll of all the' shades who land, Your little, faithful barking ghost. May leap to lick my phantom iwi. Washington.
