July 6.-Tlio patriotic service '�which was held in the church hore last Sunday was a groat success. The. service itself was pood and there was also a good company out and all enjoyed the form of service and the addresses. Rev. J. Leslie and E. Ruble hod charge of the addresses, and both did well and the children who were present went away with a greater knowledge of what it means to tie a citizen of Canada and the British empire than ever before. At the close of the service each person present was presented with a small Canadian flag by the officials of the Sunday school. The loose collection was given to lhi> Belgian Relief fund and a cheque amounting to $10.75 was forwarded to W. A. Buchanan, M.P., on Monday. The holiday on Monday was very quiet here as most of the inhabitants of the village went away over the weekend. A few went into Loth-bridge for the Red Cross sports and others went for picnics in the vicinity of the village. All, however, reported a very good time. The local ball players had arranged to go to Carmangay last Friday evening and see what damage they could do to that team, but the clerk of the weather did not think that they should go, as a rainstorm came on just before'the time that they should have left, so the game was off. It is expected that Carmangay will come over here in the not distant future, and then we 3hall see a game worth while. Mr. Kilpatrick and Mr. Eberley, both of the Merchants' bank here, were away for the week-end. The first with friends at Maple Creek and the other was in Calgary at the fair. A good number of the townspeople and farmers from the outlying district took advantage of the two excursions that have been run to Calgary this week to attend the fair. Ail say what a good time they had. Miss Coleman is spending the vacation at the coast and from the cards that have been received by her friends here, she is having an enjoyable time. Miss Magee was in Banff for the holiday staying with friends. A party of our young people went across to Monarch last Friday for a small dance at the home of Mr. Mie-bach. A very good time was spent. On Wednesday the member in the provincial house for this district, J. Macnaughlon, of Carmangay, paid a visit to the village. During a brief conversation he stated that as far as he could see there was going to be s. serious shortage of labor with which to handle this year's crop. There would be no soldiers to depend upon as there has been during the last two years and he did not know jU6t bow the situation would have to be handled. The north country, he also stated, had a very good crop a�d those farmers who last year came down from there on account of crop failure in the district would this year ALOVELY, dear soft skin, natural and true to nature awaits those who daily use ABBEY'S SALT - blackhead* disappear, pimples vanish as the magnesia Is expelled through the pour* of the skin.

The Presbyterian Sabbath school held its annual picnic at the river bottom on Friday. There was a largo turn-out in spite of the high wind that prevailed throughout the day. Farmers from the surrounding district very kindly conveyed parents and children to and from tho picnic, where lunch was served nnd races and games indulged in. Everyone had � good time. SO Cents a Box have to stop at home arid get their own harvest in. Is not this labor question one thrtt tho Lethbridgo board of trade should get busy on? Even if the stores in the cities and towns had to be short of help for a time to enable the harvest to be got in would it do them any harm? Perhaps the best way to handle the whole question would be to have conscription of labor and send men where they would do the most good to the empire at this time. Mr. Caulder, the chief road Inspector, was in the diBtrict on Wednesday looking over the roads and seeing that everything was in good condition. On Monday some of our young folk went out to Coaldale for tho ball game in a borrowed auto, and coming back they ran into another car. After they get the damages paid for they will think that the trip was an expensive one and will consider twice before they borrow a car again. On the fourth of July the worthy inhabitants of the village heard a most melodious sound and woundered very much whatever it was. A few minutes later, however, they saw a procession made up of our allies from across the line who were marching round the village with all flags flying in celebration of their great day. So far as we have learnt there was no damage done, either by the hand or the procession. Mrs. C. S. Noble and children left on Thursday morning for Banff, where they will spend a few weeks; they were accompanied by Mrs. W. J. Buchanan and children. Mrs. Fraser. Mrs. Noble's mother, is also expected to arrive from Hawksbury, Out., this week-end and she will proceed to Banff to stay with them. The school trustees held a meeting on Wednesday evening and arranged some of the work necessary in connection with the new school. They also decided to advertise for a male teacher for the next session on the understanding that he would be the principal when the new school was opened. Mrs. J. Harris and Verna, of Lethbridge, have been spending a few days at the McDougail house. During tho last few days we have been having some very nice showers of rain which are doing a great amount of good to the whole of the crops. So far there has been no hail for which we are alt very glad. The crops all round here are in grand condition and everything points to a big harvest. On Monday your correspondent was over the Turin and Iron Springs districts and in both of these tho crops look good. Given ordinary weather the whole of this district will have a bumper crop again this year. Well may It be asked if there Is any better place to live in than Sunny Southern Alberta.

Tho ladles' aid who are holding a pantry sale in the McDougail house on next Saturday, are very busy so as to make it a great success.

The petition shows that tho proposed road will run from tho northwest corner of section 10 to the railroad tracks and then over them by a level crossing and then to run down tho cast side of tho track to the town.

Mrs. Barric, who has bcon sick for several weeks, was conveyed to the Gait hospital on Thursday where she is making fair progress. The high winds nnd bright sunshine of the past week dried up quite a lot of the moisture nnd many of our farmers were beginning to be-como alarmed. Some went so far as to say that another week of such weather would mean a crop failure. Happily, a lot of rain fell on Tuesday evening and through the night and the farmers are now smiling. Throughout this district, nnd especially in the Rolling Hills district, a large amount of new land is being broken. In some cases whole sections are being ploughed up. Farmers are experiencing a growing difficulty in the care of stock as all available pasture is being used for crops and it is getting to be almost impossible to keep much stock. J.

A very successful dance was held at Diamond City on Friday evening in aid of the Patriotic fund. The dance was organized by the Oddfellows' lodge and some eighteen or twenty who went from here say that tho whole affair was splendidly carried out. Owing fo the very hot weather the Dominion Day services were somewhat sparsely attended. Special addresses were delivered and at Rolling Hills appropriate musical - numbers were rendered. W. J.
