Claresholm Review: Patrons of the Queen's Hotel! were somewhat siirpris cd to find its bar closed during the past ten days. It ap]>eurs that complaints were made to the Attorney-Aeneral, under whose department the Liquor License Act is being enforced, that this particular hostelry was not carrying out the new law in regard to providing sufficient heating accom modation, and it was decided that] the bar business be suspended until such time as arrangements could be made to felly comply wkh the Liquor License Ordinnnce in this respect. Via understand this has now been completed and is in every way satisfactory both to the public and to the provincial government. It would appear that tho Attorney-General's department have been very active throughout the whole province in enforcing every detail of the new 1 cense law,, and hotels have in consequence been called upon to make many important changes.

Tlie Herald haft, the definite information that this much tttlked-of train will be disconr tinued but there is no wondi of am-othcr being put on to replace' it.. It is likely that the Calgary local leaving here at 10.80 wilt be discontinued on the fifth of this month. A train will run between Lethbridge and Macleod connecting with the regular trains between Macleod and Calgary. This means thmt the train will leave Lethbridge about six o'clock in the morning and return in the middle of the afternoon. There will be no mail from Calgary on the local traia Station-Agent Graham could not con firm tho report beyond saying that it might be correct.

Below Tacoma, Wash., Jan. 3. - News comes down from Kntrat of a serious accident occurring on Mad river, in which over 7,000 sheep belonging to John Guye were lost. The herd was being driven down a mountain slope which was covered with sleet. Suddenly seven of the leaders lost their footing and started rolling down the steep declivity towards the river. This precipitated others and soon the entire herd was demoralized and rolling down the slope, The sheep were forced into the rushing torrent and those not drowned were maimed and injured, their valuable wool being torn from their bodies by the jagged rocks. ;IN0IAN FROZEN TO DEATH Edmonton, Jan. 3.-An Indian was frosen to death' at Stony Plain reserve yesterday.
