Heart Trouble was Cured by Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills. Mrs. Andrew Savoy, N.B., the year 1905 I was token and did not think I could live any length of time. My trouble was with my heart and people told mo that nothing could be for a case like mine. I consulted the very best doctors but they could do me no gcKXJ. For seven weeks 1 could hardly cross the floor. I had no pain, but was so weak nobody in the world can believe how J felt. I had given up all hopes of living and had givea my little girl to my sister- in-law. One day a friend came to see me, tnd calling me by name, said, Lizzie, if I were you I would try a dose of Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills as they are good for heart trouble.' My husband got me a box, but for two days I was not feeling any better, but on the fourth my huaband said I believe those pills are doing you good.' I was able to say, Yes, I feel a good deal better this morning.' He said, Well, I will get yon another box right away.'' I Stock two boxes and three doses out of the third one, and I was perfectly well and have not been sick since then. "I will never be without them in my home for God knows if it had not been for Mil- burn's Heart and Nerve Pills, I would not have been'alive now."

FLEMING OF MEDICINE HAT SCOUTING4 AROUNu That the highly scientific game o K ,x n -n baseba11 Wl11 n professionally in Alberta this year seems very pro bable. A league taking in cities as far east as Winnipeg and as far west as Cal-1 gary is not generally accepted as prac ticable by those who" have nad exper- ience in running professional sporting aggregations of this kind. The places are too wide apart and make the jumps too expensive in railroad fare, and this is no small item in base- ball club expenditure. It cost the professional teams of 1907 CLOSE DURING NIGHT Vacouver, B. C., Jan. lio- tel proprietors of Nanaimo have is- sued notice of the voluntary closing of hotel bars from one to six a.m. They give the reason that a man should go home at one o'clock if he is to be fit for work the next- day. EVER The Eureka has in the past had some good acts, but never an act that pleased the theatre-goers more than 'The Three Pearce Sisters This act alone is worth the price of the show. The youngest of the trio, a little girl of not more than six summers, is one of the best child comedians on the vaudeville stage, and she is well supported by her two older sisters (though the older sisters may not like it stated in this Lew Diamond, Irish Comedian is first-class. His songs, jokes, etc., are above the average and were received with much applause. Motion pictures were a feature last night. Mgr, Morris says he is on the best and most expensive circuit a.nd the pictures were well up to their reputation. The illustrated song was one of the best yet put on. The singing was ex- cellent. in the neighborhood of apiece for railroad fares. In, Lethbridge there is a strong feeling among the fans for the old league of 1907 again, this city, Medicine Hat. Calgary and Edmonton. With the experience of years ago a much better start is possible. Each of the four cities mentioned know just where they are at on the question. It has been suggested that instead of sending the teams on ex- pensive training trips it would an- swer quite as well to have the play- ers report at .their respective places and work out there previous to the opening of the league. Jas. Fleming, well known baseball enthusiast of Medicine Hat, has been on a scouting tour, by the way of feeling out The pleasure of the pro- moters of the game in some of the other towns. It is understood that he visited Edmonton and Calgary and his propositions were favorably receiv ed in regard to reforming the league of" 1907.

Mr. hopes to States, relative tox the waters of the St. Marys and Milk Kivers, is contain- ed in a letter received yesterday by Secretary W. A. Remington, of the Great Falls Board of Commerce, from Senator Jos. M. Dixon, to the effect that the to governments have each agreed to take one-naif of the waters of the two rivers. A Tribune Washington dispatch stated that the terms of the treaty, which had not been made public, satisfactory to the Montana congres- sional delegation and to the reelama- iou service. Another dispatch pub- lished in a state paper said that the -reaty provided that the Canadian government should be entitled to only such waters as found their source in Janada, and that the United States should have the waters that, found their source in this country. Natural- y it was hoped this was the basis on which tne treaty was framed, but rom Senator Dixon's letter, it ap- pears otherwise. Senator Dixon's letter follows: Washington, Jan. 21, 1909. My Dear have your of re- cent date enclosing copy ol the_reso- utions of the Great Falls board of jommerce, urging the appropriation 3f a sum of money to conserve the raters of the St. Mary's river. You have probably seen in the VIontana papers before this the news hat a long.delayed treaty between Canada and the United States has at ast been negotiated and was trns- mitted to the senate for ratification ome days ago. The treaty will un- oubtedly be ratified soon and, as nder its provisions, the two gov- rnments have agreed to each take ne-half of the waters of the St. lary's and Milk Rivers, this will set. .e the controversy and upon ratificaj on of the treaty, the reclamation ervice will at once proceed with the fact that a treaty between the United States and the Canadian gov- ernments has been agreed to, subject to action of the Senate thereon, such discussion of the subject as would be occasioned by the introduction of this bill would be unwise at "this time. The treaty is now pending before the Senate committee on foreign re- lations of which committee I am a member, and the clause relating to the use of the waters of the St. Mary's lake and river, as well as the- use of the channel of the Milk river tc con- duct the same is in iny charge. While the terms of the treaty -cannot be made public belore the same has been ratified by the Senate, I can assure you that the rights' of the United States in these waters are properly safeguarded by the treaty provisions. As scon as the treaty has been ra- tified, which will be before the close of this session of Congress, the re. clamation will at once take up the St. Mary's and Milk River projects in earnest and push the same to com- pletion. Very truly CARTER. A third letter from Congressman Pray says that the recent settlement of the controversy, "ought to lead to a favorable solution of the problem that has been under consideration for a number of years." Thecommunica- tion from Congressman Pray follows: Washington, Jan. 16, 1909. Mr. W. A. Remington, Secretary, Great Falls Board of Comerce, Great Falls, Montana, Dear letter of the 12th last.., with a copy of the resolutions concerning St. Mary's lake and river las just been received.
