BENEFITS GF WATER Ottawa, July ft.-Consideration of tin- details of the military service bill \.as continued in committee of lhi� house today. There was an almost complete absence of partisan feeling, and members on both sides of the house, both English and French, appeared to vie with each other in maklii'T" suggestions which in their opinion would improve the bill. Several clauses of the bill were finally disposed of by the committer, and others were partially passed, certain subsections being held over for further consideration. Those included a*snb.-ection of clause six providing for a board of selection to be established by joint resolution of tho commons and senate, which shall name one or two members of all local tribunals. Sir Robert Borden said that no definite conclusion had been reached as to th? proper constitution of the board, and that suggestions would be welcomed. On the suggestion of Sir Wilfrid Laurier the subsection stood over. The only formal amendment moved was one by F. B. Carvell. providing that when the minister of militia takes an appeal from tho lower tribunal he should make a deposit to cover the costs of the appeal so that there should be no unfairness to the person concerned. The prime minister thought the suggestion worthy of consideration and ta? matter stood over for further coasidoration. _ When the penalties clause was under discussion. H. 13. Morphy and others suggested a more drastic measure. He suggested 10 years penalty for desertion and five years for failure to report. Fred Pardee remarked that the object of the bill was to make soldiers and not outlaws. Mr. Meighcn agreed. The object of the bill, he said, was to provide reinforcements and not to make jailbirds.

MIEAN'S OFFICIAL IS just the Tho final official return has been made in the election in Taber riding, showing the. majority of Hon. A. J. McLean to be S28. The vote by polls was as follows:. E O'.'ONTINtJED FROM Fttn.VT 1*AGE| matters, it is just as well to confess that many farm buildings aveyiot provided with eaves troughs, barrels anil cisterns. This neglect is criminal. The weather clerk lays the water on the roof, and if you only give him a little bit of pipe he will put the finest, softest rain water right into the barrel or down in the cistern for you. A farmer's wife said to me the other day, "Yes, he has been talking of doing It for the last four or five years," and the way she said it seemed to indicate that if she waited four or five years longer, he might get round to it. In one of the new towns along the Manyberries line only two buildings out of about two hundred have eaves , troughs, yet the people pay sixty cents a barrel for water from a slough! I find it necessary to mention such things as this to farmers who complain about the painfully slow actions of the governments. I almost think the water conference should have passed a resolution requiring every farmer to do what his wife told him to do in regard to getting domestic water, and to do it at enca. Further cheering news comes as to the development of Mr. Dowling's artesian water basin. Another well has been brought in on the N.E. coiner of Tp. 7, Rg. 13, about ten miles north of Legend on the Foremost line. The yater, which is clear and good, was struck at 5S1 feet, So there seems to be no doubt that a valuable source of supply is gradually coming to light. fThe well in the Etzikom coulee, the cne at Foremost, this one north of Legend; then the C.P.R. are boring at Conrad, and they will presently drill another at Foremost. EDMONTON FAIR OPENS. Edmonton, July '29.-With perfect weather prevailing Edmonton's annual exhibition waB formally opened this afternoon by Hon. Duncan Marshall, Alberta's minister of agriculture. As in previous years the exhibition shows a growth in all departments, especially cattle and horses. 'Every available inch of space in both the machinery and manufacturers buildings has been taken up. Good racing programmes are scheduled for the six days of the fair, and an excellent line, of attractions, including automobile races, daily aeroplane flights and mimic trench warfare, am provided. (From Our Own Oirrosponaer.t) Magrath. July 9.-Mrs. Gibson, - i mother-in-law of Dr. Dice, has return-oil to her home in the states after spending a few weeks in Magrath. Mrs. Jennie Barclay and little daughter, of Calgary, are spending a month with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Baxter. Harold Wood and Andrew Peterson spent the week-end at Waterton Lakes. Their "catch" amounted to a round dozen. We appeal to the ladies of Magrath and district in aid of Red Cross sewing. Two new sewing machines have been purchased by the society and one lias been donated by the Women's Institute which makes five machines now in the sewing room. We would ask that more ladles come out and do your bit during the summer months. The Women's Institute sew each Wednesday afternoon end the Red Cross society day is Thursday. Any lady is welcome either day, or sewing can be taken home. A roll for summer sewers has been made and will be hanging on tho wall in the room. Come and bave.,your name on the roll and see if you can be present each Thursday. A total of $1,500 was sent by the local branch of the Red Cross to the central office tit Calgary. More will be sent later on if needed by the central office. It was thought advisable by the local branch to send $1,500 at present and more later, and keep enough on hand to carry the work on here until after harvest. About 54,300 was raised by the Magrath branch on Red Cross day, I July 2, and we are proud of our Gar-j den City and think we can beast of raising the largest amount on that day for any town this sizo in the Dominion. In a meeting of the executive of the Red Cross held on Thursday afternoon a committee was appointed to make up boxes and comforts for our local soldier boys over seas. This committee is Mrs. A. Mercer, chairman, Mrs. Geddes, Mrs. R. W. Brad-shaw, Mrs. Fowler. Mrs. L. Barker, .Mrs. Woolley and Miss L. Hull. A very enjoyable evening was Bpent at the home of Bishop Harker on Friday, July G, when all the committees of the July 2 celebration met in a lawn party. The president and. oiiic-ers of the local Red Cross wish to thank each one who helped In any way to make the day such a grand success. The evening was spent in playing games and the seJor, of nerg ElliDgson were much enjoyed by all present. Last, but not least, was the feast of,ice cream which was furnished by our president, R. W. Bradshaw. About eighty people were present and all report the best time of the season. The beautiful and spacious lawn was lit up by electricity furnished by Mr. Marker's Doico lighting (system, the wrong being done by tho electricians of the Craiie-Cassidy Co. Mrs. Joseph Evans Is at present in the Van Harlem hospital, Lethbridge, whore she underwent an operation last weok. Little Rena Dow is also at the same hospital with a broken arm. Magrath people will be pleased to noto that G. A. G. Geddes, manager of tho Bank of Montreal here, and at present in the hospital at Lethbridge, is progressing nicely after his recont operation.

In the morning Prussia won the opening game from Champion handily, the score being lo to 4. Batteries: Prussia, Theilman and Stefnert; Champion, Slier, Wiggs and F. Lewis. In the afternoon -Medicine Hat Monarchs, with Snow and Rogers aB a battery, defeated the Forty-Mile team by 11 to 2. Walker did great execution for the losers, striking out 14 men, but his support was poor. This evening Sceptre took the long end of a 15 to 5 score against Antelope Lake . The Sceptre battery was Shields and Mc.N'eeley; Antelope Lake, Davidson, G. Young and E. Young, Lloyd and (1. Young. Despite large scores all games were keenly contested, and provided the crowd of fans with good exhibitions. ' have to go some. There aro very people in the Claresholm district who are aware that they have a world beater like Maurice in their midst. The town has been practically deserted this last week on account of the Calgary fair. The many friends of the Inte Mr. Seigel. of Calgary, who was well known in nnd around Claresholm, greatly deplore his untimely death by an accident while warming up for an auto race on the Calgary race track. Your correspondent has the idea that it is about time that exhibition managers, where there are not suitable tracks, would take a tumble as In nearly every case where auto racing is indulged in, there are accidents to either the driver or spectators. The .Moffat entry in the Calgary races. "Princess Pat," made a verjr creditable showing in tho three-year-old race for Canadian bred colts, as also did the Simroond's entry "Our Lassie." We noticed in a late Issue of the Lethbridge Herald an item as to grain shipments from different points throughout the south country. There is one matter that we wish to put clearly before your readers as we know that the facts as they are are not understood by the greater part of them. Claresholm is placed fifth on the list as to shipments for the last ten months. If you will take a map and mark a place just five miles south, of Claresholm, you will find the thriving village, of Woodhouse, and this place you will find will also show you that they have out of their five elevators shipped a tremendous number of bushels of wheat. The elevators of Woodhouse naturally draw custom from within three, and in numerous cases, two and .a half miles from Claresholm, their supply of empties in the grain season being pro-rata. Take the cases of Vulcan, Bow Island, Carmangay, Barons, etc., and you will readily see that on account of no competition to the east of them, their shipments as compared with Claresholm are not at all as large, as Claresholm to the west has not more than eight miles to draw from and naturally has to divide with Carmangay and Barons to the east, Woodhouse, five miles south, and Stavely nine miles north.: The amount of building in Claresholm at the present time looks very much like old times. The extension to the Methodist church is about completed and is a credit to S. Furgueson, the contractor, and also to the Methodist people of Claresholm. Quite a number of Claresholm people visited Stavely on Friday last to witness the bucking contest, the principals being "J.J.," the bad horse owned by Mr. Orr of'Little Bow, and "Miner," of Nanton. Quite a bunch of long green was in evidence and Miner sure had a cinch on the money as "J.J." refused to do her ordinary stunts. The ball game between Stavely and Champion proved to be a walk-away for Champion to the tune jf 18 to 8. The game throughout \va3 marked by very ragged ball and for two semi-professional teams, was away below the standard. The vote on tho waterworks bylaw, which is to be taken on July 23, is causing very wide discussion and a very warm time is looked for cn July 23rd. The Claresholm band will supply tho music for the Barons celebration to be held on July 20. "DONKEY" TOO GOOD FOR KAISER A German officer walking on ttjo street in a Belgian town encountered a small Belgian boy leading a donkey. "Ach, that is a fine mule," the officer remarked. "What have you named him? Albert, 1 suppose. "Oh. no," said tho youngster, love my king too much for that. "I hope you haven't named Wllhelm." "Oh. no, monsieur l'offleer, 1 tho donkey far too much for that." La Llberte, which tells tho story and vouches for-Its authenticity, says "the fate of the boy was not learned." "1 him love E TO SETTLE HERE Winnipeg, July 0.-All Investigations lead to the decided belief Mint (hero will ho a tremendous immigration of imperial army ex-servlco men to Canada after tho war. declared .1. Bruce Walker, commissioner of Immigration, who has just, returned from London. Mr, Walker has been In the old country for five months, acting on the empire settlement committee, In connection with the settlement of soldiers. Air. Walker continued: "The committee took special stepa to ascertain the# opinion of all nielli-hern, and we are abundantly satisfied that a vast proportion of the men of honors. sedentary occupations will not return to such work, but will �ock to perpotuato the out-door life by emigrating to one of the overseas dominions. It. is generally recognized in England that the conditions offered by tho Canadian government are moro attractive nnd provide groator inducements Mum those of any of the other dominions. As soon as the war Is over demobilization takes place, and if tho necessary transportation cqulp-niont can be provided thoro will bo a tremendous Immigration, and particularly to tho western provinces."
