It Is tiuroilcsB. ..... .That Lethbrldge's population is showing no signs of decrease i.s well established by the registration figures made publfc to-day by Capt. Geo. Porter, chief registrar for tho Leth-brldge constituency, who with hia staff, hae just completed a complla-Upn of (the registraL'.on result^ in Lothbrldge. The cards show 4,,')17 males registered on June 22nd and 3,258 females, making a total of 7,775 people over the age of 16 yeara in the city. In addition to those registered, thero are known to be about 2,200 school children In Lethbrldge under sixteen, while 11 ie estimated there are about 2,000 more under school age. Using these figures for purposes of estimation, the population of the city is 11,975. This does not take account of the large number out of the city on the day of registration, so that tho last police census of 12,145 may be considered to be very near the proper mark. Capt. Porter and his staff will now commence compiling the figures for outside points, after which a compilation for the whole constituency will be made. At the last Dominion election about 3,000 voters cast their ballots In the city, Edmonton, July 4,-Another atep hna been taken In the consolidation of the teachera' organizations of this province by the formal Incorporation last week of "Tho Teachers' Alliance of the Province of Alberta."

A general aim of the Teachers' Alliance is to assist in giving the pro-feaalon a. permanence which It has not heretofore had In this province, and to thereby benefit the cause of education. Several committees will be at work during the next fortnight with a View to formulating some definite proposals which it la expected will bo made to the department before tjio next meeting of the legUlature.

Amsterdam, July 4.-A conspiracy at Warsaw against the Polish Regency Couricil In which many leaders of the Polish, party are involved, has been discovered by the author|tle� thers, according to a Vienna dispatch to-day. The news of tho reported conspiracy is publiijhed In th* Zl�t, which cayo It was directed aaalnst the Central Powers. AIRMAN KILLEO. Camp Bbrrten, .On't., 'July 4.-Oaaet 11, Kaplan, Royal Air Force, in trsln-Ing here, was killed this moratw as the reauli of an airplane Mfldent. Vllfl next ot kin is MrB. F. Kaplan, Uwinnlpefc, Evidently abandoned by Ita piolher, a perfectly, sound, healthy baby boy of about two weeks of age was found on Wednesday afternoon north of the traclcB by two littlo boys, Tommy .\lc-Corinack und Tommy .loneS, as they wero on iliclr v/ay from the hualnesa district to Iholr honifin on 12th Street X. The two boya carried their predoua package to Nw. 1 fire hall to report to Chief Hardy, and il was taken in and cared lor by Mr.s. Hardy nntll the chief arrived. He had tho child removed to the Cliildren'a Shelter. The spot where the child was found waa a rather deserted place between the overhdud bridge approach and the "V" on the north aide of the (MMt. yarda, uacd for turning paaBongor trains. The boya were going home between five and six when they heard a sound Isauing from what appeared to be a pile of Tliey thoimht it might bo a cat and investigated. Instead, they found a baby boy, clean and bright, but clothed only in a shawl. Over the child's head was a cardboard box, while over all was turned a sheet of tin. There waa not a mark or a name on the body or clothing to denote the name of the parents, and Chief Hardy la quite certain that It was a deliberate attempt to abandon the baby. Not Long Abandoned. That the child could not have been abandoned for more than two hours la the opinion of the chief. Mis theory is that the mother arrived on one ot tho early afte.''noon trains from out of town, crosaed the overhead brldko and picked out a deaorted apot, leaving her baby and then leaving on one of the later trains for her home. This ie Juat a theory but color is lent it by the belief that no one living in Lethbrldge would attempt' to abandon a baby In the city in broad daylight. No attempt was made to make away with the child. There were no marks of violence on its body. Uather IL appeared well oared for, its little body being powdered .and clean. It waa also well nourished, for though tho chief found MrH. Hardy feeding it milk from a spoon when he arrived, the body showed no signs of emaciation. The little fellow has . a dark complexion. The chief is instituting a vigorous search for the mother of the child. Child desertion la a crime, hut had it not been that the baby waa picked up during the warm afternoon, it would very likely have been found dead thia morning, following the cold rain last evening and the chill of the night, in which case a more serious charge would have been preferred against the unknown mother. FINE NEW ARTESIAN WELLS OISCOVEREO Within a radius ot six mllea In a district about 12 miles south of Grassy Lake, six wells have been drilled within the past year In the artesian area, ail bringing in water. A number more are now being sunk. The difficulty that portion of Southern Alberta always had in securing a water supply appears to have been solved. Further details of drilling for well water southeast ot tho city are contained In a letter to the Board ot Ti-ade from E. Gardiner, Medicine Hat well driller, on recolpf of a copy of tho WBtev conference bulletin. He says: Wo have drilled In all i3 wells in the Foremost country and 'all flowed but ono which is 100 fee^ higher than Foremost. The well which we drilled for Mr. Wheatley Vi mile west ot Foremost ehowed a pressure of 17 lbs. That would indicate that .we were within 34 feet of the top of tho artesian flow. Wo also drilled one for the village ot Foremost which gave about tho same amount of water as .Mr. Wheatley's well which was 5 gallons per minute. As you go south and southeast of Foremost the country gets higher and you got the arteeian sand and water but you have to pump the wells. Two wells sonth ot Pore-most Just ran .over not enough to supply in urgent time but they can be pumped very easily on account o� water standing so near tlio surface. We drilled two wells 9 ralloa west of Foremost, one tor Mr. Andereon, which flowed one gallon per minute. The moat of our operations wero acroBS tho coulee north of Foremost ami northeast and northwest. Our first well in ' district waa started on Soptember 2l8t, 1917 for Mr. Alox. Miller. We also drilled tor his nolgh- WOMAN'S STATEMENT WILL HELP LETHBRIDGE "I hated cooking because whatever I ate Bpvo mo sour stomacli and a blotted feeling. 1 drank hot water and oUvo oli by the gallon.
