The "Y" cnrae back strong and before the ne.xt 5 minutes elapsed had tied the score, 15-15. From then on till the close things zigzagged and at tho sound qf the gong, tho score was announced as 23-19, In favor Stirling. , Jlorning trains -from tBe south brought Mr. and 5Irs. H. H. Mclntyre and C. B. Bender from California, and Mr. Mclntyre brings back word that California will send more landseekers to Southern Alberta the coming spring than ever before. Mr. Mclntyre- owns a farm near Lethbridge, and has been: among friends In the sunny state all winter. Last spring there were hundreds ot Callfornians who canie up and secured land in this section, but this year he says they will come in swarms. Other travellers returning from the States declare that the movement will be heavy in spite ot the war. hlght now enquli'les are comlngj iiito the offices of W�e local real estate men in large numbers ^ery day, and Lethbridge wijl bo the.mecca of the land-seeker in tiie spring. The movement in farm lands is the heaviest, de^ joined'the'followers of Wesley, lio that; clares one agent, since 1912 when the last great rush was on. munity. I wisli your correspondent to know that I stand, by tho Grace of) God, where I stoo^ at the time above referred to, seven years ago, against every assailant of "the faith which was once delivered unto the saints." Jude 3 and welcome a public discussion of Mor-monism from a. Biblical standpoint, with any of the "Apostles and Prophets" who have been "called of God as was Aaron," and,are thus divinely licensed to speak, whether he be the ostensible non-polygamist of Canada or the practical polygamist of America, Yours respectfully, JOHN bab; what I may say will perhaps have add. ed weight with those not ot that faith. I was both surprised and incensed that one occuijying the ixisiiion you do, sliould, according to an article in the Calgary Herald of Feljiuary U, the authenticity of which .voii have, never denied, maUo, such an iiuwarranted, untruUitul, libelous attack on a good and noble people. Have you forgotten the ten commandments and that one Irt particular, (llie 9thk.that says: "Thou Shalt not bear, false witneiss against thy nei.^li/jor," and tlien the other ope that Christ gave (John 13-34). "That yo love one another as I have loved you." also the Stb command ment: "Thou shalt hot steal," which will apply in your case, as you have endeavored to stoal their good name, which is "more, valuable than great rlches.v Shpver and >VilleUs took two out of three from Benton and Dickson in the doubles touriiey at the Dominion alleys last; night, winntrig the first and third but losing the second by the narrow maniiii -ot' eight pins.

Phyaical Habits Do you think' such' teachings will have an undermining effect on Clirlst-iauity. Another thing, old and young are taught, Is how to live, to grow and take care of tjie physical part. Tea, coffee, tobacco and all intoxicants are not- considered necessary, but detrimental to the best physical development. Now does It not seem strange that scientific men have jii'st^lately foyntl tliut out. Conches tor athletic team's, whore strength, agility, endurance and clear heads are necessary for tho,host.results, forbid the use ot all these. The Jlormons have known this UQg^rly 90 years. As a result of these teaching, one of their meetings, see tho bright healthy children, sturdy boys,and girls, robust grown-ups; and men and women of years, some of them of four score or more, active and enjoying life. I know ot no other com. numltleB where you can find the same. Solid Life They believe In cultivating the social side of lite in all innocent amusements, music and entertainments which, ivlth' their strictly temperate living, le^da to a long and happy life. While living, they are very much alive. In their "Articles of Faith," number 13, we -I'eadr "We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and In doing good to all men;"' then again, -"If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these'things. Do you think the teachings ot these can in any way undermine Christianity? -' - 1 tlilnk O. H. Snow has fully,answer ed you in regard to'their loyally and strict observance of the lawsv .Summing up all, and I s|iy'this deliberately, and from pierSb'nal observation ot the different denominations, I will say that the Mormons come nearer living up to tho' teachings, of Christ than any otlipr sect with'which ,1 am acquainted, I make tio exceptions.
