Mr. Le Barr is moving to his place up north. O.ur real estate men are receiving a deluge of inquiries from points in the U.S.A. concerning land and also opportunities for employment and wages. Some of these letters indicate that strange reports of military conscription hero have been circulated among the U.S. people, and they desire to be assured of the falsity of these before venturing across the line. The time-honored sport of following the hounds may be. superseded in Alberta by the more modern, pursuit of chasing the wolf with a motor car. E. A. Grant is the exponent of this thrill- ing and interesting pastime. One day last week, while driving along in his Dodge car some miles east of town, in company with his brother they sighted a prairie wolf on some open sections and Immediately started a cross-country chase. The badger holes being frozen over, the usually rough and uncertain prairie made a comparatively safe and swift speedway. The wolf had never been followed by a hound of such speed and endurance before and after a devious chase of three or four miles the denizen of the prairie was forced to capiiulate andj submit to capture. The hide was se-i cured as a trophy of the chase. Whether this pursuit will become popular or not we cannot say, but personally wo would prefer the old way.

P.O.Box 189 Doctor Tells How to Strengthen Eyesight 50 per cent In One Week's time In Many Instances A Free Prescription You Can Have � Filled and Use at Home. Philadelphia, Pa.-Do you wear glasses? Are you a victim of eye strain or other eye weaknesses ? If so, you glad to Know that according to Dr. Lewis there "Is real hope for ypu. Many whose eyes were falling say they have had their eyes restored through the principle'of this wonderful-free prescription. .One man says, after trying it: "I was almost blind; could not see to read at all. Now I can read everything without any glasses and jny eyes do not water any more. At night they would pain dreadfully; now they feel fine ail the time. It was like a miracle to me." A lady who used it Bays: "The atmosphere seemed hazy;' with or without glasses, hu' after using this prescription for fit-teen 'days everything seems clear. I can even read fine print without glasses." It is believed �hat thousands who .wear glasses can now discard them in a.reasonable time and multitudes more will be able to strengthen their, eyes so as to be spared the trouble and expense of ever getting glasses. .Eye trouble? of many descriptions"'may be wonderfully benefitted j by following the] jslmplg, jrutes. Here is the prescription: Go to any active drug store and get a_ bottle ot Bon-Opto tablets. Drop one Bon-Opto tablet into a fourth of a glass of water and allow it to dissolve. With this liquid bathe the eyes two to four times daily. You should notice you; eyes clear- up. perceptibly right from the start and inflammation will quickly disappear. If your eyes are bothering you, even a little, take steps to save thorn now before it is too late. Many hopelessly blind might have been saved if they had cared for their eyes in time. Note: Another prominent physician to whom the above article was submitted, said: "Bon-Opto is a very remarkable: remedy. Its constituent in gredients are well known to eminent eye specialists. and widely prescribed by them. The manufacturers guarantee it t,o strengthen eyesight 60% in one week's time in many instances or refund the money. It can be obtained from any good druggist and is- one of the very few preparations I feel should be kept on hand for regular use in almost every family." It is sold in Lethbridge by lied Cross Drug & Book Co. and other druggists.-Advt. Part of the N.%-17 and part of the S.
