Then! is every indication of trouble at the Canadian-American Coal CV.'s mine at Frank, between the employees of that, mine and the company. It is claimed by the miners that the contract lately entered into between them ami 'his company is being deliberately violated by the latter, and that also the protection of human life in the mine is not being properly safeguarded. The union is trying, apparently without success, to negotiate with the company in regaed to the first complaint and the provin-cial mine inspector has been requested by them to investigate the latter cause of complaint. In the contract entered into between the local union and the company a scale of wages was fixed and agreed upon which it is now claimed by the minors is being violated by the com]jany. In regard to the second complaint of the union it is claimed that then' are raises or working places in the mine up as high as 2ended ro|M': that these places are working and that during working hours coal is continually falling down tin in which is liable to cut the rope. Men coming oil' shift are obliged to swing out upon this rope to descend and if the rope should break they might be maimed for life or killed outright. Dave Elton's Birthday. Cardston Star. A crowd of "Married Surprisers" stormed the home of Mr. and Mrs. i). H. Elton last Thursday night. They caught the "paiM-r man" in his shirt slce\ts just preparing to apply a little "cold tar soap" for the removal of much ink. Through much persuasion they allowed him to get acquainted with the "wash dish" before making his appearance. All sorts of games were indulged in the making of the will, ami the "consequences of Mrs. IJ rimes" being the most interesting to the writer anyway. There was another game which made a lasting impression. The "hediter" had a biithday coniinu and just as the clock stnu-k 12 he was invited to try a trapci-act o\vr a couple of sofa pillows witii his eyes blinded by a handkerchief. Tenderly gently ami gingerly knowing the care of the Mrs. for the pillows he proc. edi d when he found his ponderous anatomy ensconced in the broad lap of Will Wolsey and like a thousand bees and hor-nd.-. swarming beneath his coat-tails, came the patter, patter, pat, shipper, shipper, slap of everyone present. Supper was afterwards served, which was more than these "slapping surprisers" deserved. Mother and the frying pan is far more preferable than a score of full growns" without mercy or padding. BIG WHEAT GROWERS Owners of Large Farms in katchewan. Sas- C. W. Speer, in an interview at Winnijieg. said: "We think we have the largest grower of hard wheat in the world in Saskatchewan. This is Mr. Detchon, the patent medicine man of Chicago. This year Mr. Detchon had :*200 acres in wheat. lie threshed '.Hi,. c opened for traffic. As an example of how fast wheat grows in the Peace River region, spring wheat sown on the 10th of May last summer was ripe and ready to cut on tho 4th of \ugust, allowing only 8b' days for growth from the seed to maturity. This record is probably unbeaten any whore in the world. David Black, of Pincher Creek, a director and acting manager of the Canadian Northwestern Oil Company, is in the oity. His company is preparing to prospect their oil lauds extensively, and four cars of machinery are now on their way to Pincher. They are boring some 85 miles from thot town and their property is about seven miles from 8^ t^t HERALDS NEW - OFFICE Rffl T in HE HERALD is now located new quarters, at the rear of the Qlaio! ware- brick A walk leads office door.
