MAY BE A STRIKE Trouble between Ccmpany Men at Frank. and From Blairmore Times. There is every indication of troii-ble at the Canadian-American Coal Co's mine at Frank, between the einiiloycu^s of that mine and the company, it is claimed liy the miners that the contract lately entered into between thom and *.his company is being deliberately violated by the latter, and that also the protection of human life in the mine is Tiot being properly safeguarded. The union is irying. apparently without succi'ss. to negotiate with the company in regaed to the first complaint and the provin--cial mine inspector has been re-(luested 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 nix)n which it is now claimed by the miners is Ijeing violated by the comimny. 1 n regard to the second complaint of the union it is claimed tliat there are raises or working places in the mine np as high as 200 feet; that there art; no ladders or other way of ascending or descending them except by a suspended ro\x>-, that these places are working and that during working hours coal is con-tinua ly fallii>g down them which is liable to cut the rope. Men coming off shift are obliged to swing out upon this rope to descend and if thi; rope should break they might be maimed for life or killed outright. CHIPS FROM THE BLOCK Breezy Round-up of Live News Items rrom All Over the District. case BIG WHEAT GROWERS Owners of Large Farms in katchewan. Sas- C. W. Speer, in an interview at Winnipeg, said: ''We think wo lave the largest grower of hard wheat in the world in Saskatchewan. This is Mr. Detchon, the patent medicine man of Chicatro, This year Mr. Detc-hon had H200 acres in wheat. He threshed IKJ,-100 bushels of wheat from his farm m average of 80 bushels per acre. In all he had 105,000 bushels of grain. Next year he will largely increase his acreage under crop. At Dundurn, Senator Melican, of Nebraska, raised 40,000 bushels from two sections of land, a little over 80 bushels to the acre. Dave Elton's Birthday. Cardston Star. A crowd of "Married Surprisers" stormed the home of Mr. and Mrs. D. H. Elton last Thursday night. They caught the "'pajxjr man" in his shirt sleeves just preparing to api^ly a little "cold tar soap" for the remova 1 of much ink. Through much persuasion they allowed him to get ac(|uainled with the "wash dish" before making his appearance. All sorts of games were indulged in-the making of the will, and the "consequences of Mrs. Grimes" being the most interesting-to the writer anyway. There was another game which made a lasting impression. The "hediter" had a birthday coming and just as the clock struck 12 he was invited to try a trapese act over a couple of sofa pillows with his eyes blinded by a handkerchief. Tenderly gently and gingerly-knowing the care of the Mrs, for the pillows-he proceeded v.-hen he found his pojiderous anatomy ensconced in the broad lap of Will Wolsey and like a thousand bees and hornets swarming beneath his coat-tails, came the patter, patter, pat, shipper, shipper, sllip 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 padding. or Don't Stop Advertising. Cranbrook Herald Hill & Co. have the right idea about talking to the people. This time of the year many iseople in business reduce their advertising, thinking thatthe people are through buying. "I believe that this is the time of the year to let them know that you are giving bargains," said Mr. Hill to the Herald man. "I have followed that policy and found that the people respond very quickly. W ith the class of goods we are selling and the l>ig cut in prices we are doing abetter trade than we overdid before in .Januaiy, Bnt there is no use giving attractive bargains unless you let tlu' jjeople know about it. That is why I keep talking to the peojjle thnjugh the columns of newspapers. This big stock of ours has got to be re
