While thoBe who plant go shy. -Washington Star. "That the deceased R. G. Cornish, came to his death by accidental drowning. The jury recommends that ' danger signals be put up at points where it is considered dangerous, and that life saving apparatus bo provided." This was the verdict, of the coroner's jury, A. Porter chairman, in the Inquest held this afternoon to determine the cause of the death of R. G. Cornish of Toronto in Henderson Lake yesterday afternoon. Witnesses examined were, Win. Hansen, T. W. Cain, Sergt. Bowker, Lieut. Short, and Bob Ahevn, who recovered the body. The evidence .showed that there wore two lifobuoys with lines attached, but thero'was no one present strong enough to'swim out to the drowning man. Bob Abeam said the weeds on the lake bottom were strong enough to hold a man down if he got tangled In them. The jury's recommendations are along the lines being considered by the' city commissioners for regulating boating and swimming at the lake. , CANADA'S GRAIN STOCKS LARGER. Washington, July 9.- Representatives of tho Canadian board of grain supervisors conferred today with Herbert C. Hoover on tho American and Canadian wheat situation. Stocks in Canada are larger now than In tho United States and an effort will be made to supply tho allies' presont requirements from Canada rather than from tho United States. The Canadians here wore Robert A. Magill, of Winnipeg, chairman; L. C. H. Gage, president of tho Winnipeg grain exchange; W. L. Best, representing union labor, and James Stewart, of Winnipeg, representing tho allied whoat buying commission. ��}* : * >>?> : > ?

GKASSY LAKE (Frem m' Cnvn c\n-ir'5:inn(tent) Grassy Lake, July 9.-Miss Grace Davis, formerly of Grassy Lake, but now of Stottler, is visiting her aunt, Mrs. McGrath. Mike Beimler, now of Montana, but formerly one of our pioneer residents, Is in town for a few days. .Mrs. Hrt Toinlinson and children, of Mngrath, ia visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. George James, east of town Miss Beryl Barrett, daughter of Rev. and Mrs. Barrett, is home from her teaching duties near Noblcford, for the summer vacation. Mr. and Mrs. II. 13. Sands, were in Calgary for the fair, also IT. J. Berlin attended the fair returning Friday night. A meeting of Eureka municipality No. 05 was hold at Purple Springs July 4. ' Reports from road and bridge committees were heard. The councillors arranged to have considerable! load work done this year. Wm. Rals-bock was nppointod weed inspector for this district. Pete Gommerod, who was recently married, gave his wedding dance in Morning Star schoolhouse Friday j night. A big crowd was in attend-1 aneo and all report a good time. I Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Gilbert, fifteen) miles south of town, gave a house. warming Friday night in their new: house, recently finished. Several car-j loads went out from town arid nil re-! port a very pleasant time. I Mr. and Mrs. Marlin, who enmo here ! from Spokano are opening the j Frank's restaurant, recently vaeatod by Mrs. Menard. The building is | being completely overhauled upstairs' and down, newly plastered and painted, new flooring, new linoleum and new furnishing. Mr. and Mrs. Marlin promise to cater to tho wonts of the travelling public in every way by running an up-to-dato restaurant. They expect to put in a short order counter 113 well. Several of our people are arranging to attend tho stampede in Medicine Hat next weok. The town was practically deserted on the holiday, July 2, most of our people, especially owners of cars, going over to Foromost for tho blg/eole-bration. Tho roads were very rough owing to the new work on the grade of the main road. Taking the big celebration from beginning to' end, wo wore very much disappointed in it and feel about Foremost as the citizens of Mndeod did about tho circus. It was too much of u hold-up and very little to son. Thero was a time when Southern Alberta thought Foremost was the only town on the map, but wo have changed our opinion. Tho ladios of tho Rod CrosB are doing u good work. A good attend- ance and great interest is shown by Hie ladle* at every meeting. The attendance lias increased so they had to move to larger quarters. They now meet in the old German hotel building where they have large and airy rooms. Tea is served every Saturday afternoon, which is proving very popular and also a good source of revenue. The proceeds last Saturday were $14.30. The National Elevator company's crow with their tents, throe in number, present a very busy sight; they are pitched inside the C.P.R. fence. They carry all their own equipment, have a cook tent, sleeping tent and oflice and move from place to place as they build. They came here from Burdott where they just finished building an elevator. A NATIONAL DUTY The urgent necessity for public contribution to national war loans was urged upon the British people by lit. Hon. Lord Devonport until recently Britain's Food Controller. "To save, to avoid at all costs a wasteful expenditure is as much tho urgent duty of tho wagi-eurner as is the imperative obligation of the richer classes to retrench their normal expenditures by eschewing all indulgence in luxuries and extravagance. Tho state has 'a legitimate claim to "borrow" from tho surplus wealth of all." Lord Devonport 's words are as applicable to ('anada as they were to the United Kingdom. The plea he made to Great. Britain is being made in Canada today by tho National Service Board. It lias pointed out a common way of service for all, without distinction or race or sex. By investing their money in War Savings Certificates, by practising thrift that they may have more money to invest, the men and women of Canada can help the mon at tho front and contribute directly to victory. WHERE DOMINION GOT NAME Just as enquiries at the present time as to where the name "Canada" was derived, so, also, is the origin of "Dominion" being argued. The general acceptation of the origin of "Canada" Is that sprung from the Iroquois word, "Canatha," meaning "a collection of huts," although others have it that its source was the Spanish word, "Acanada," meaning "There is nothing then;," and indicating that the Spaniards foolishly considered the country of no value. With regard to "Dominion," the name was given by tho Imperial Parliament, and it was offered as a substitute to a proposal by Sir John Mac-donald to call it "Kingdom of Canada." As to its origin, the explanation is offered by Leonard P. D. Til-ley, M.P.P., St. John, N.B., in a letter sent to George S. Homosted, K.C., senior registrar, High Court Division, Toronto. Mr. Tilley, who is a son of the late Sir Leonard Tilley, ono of the Fathers of Confederation, writes that his father told him how at the Britisli I North America Act Conference, dls-I cussing terms and conditions, there I had been many iiiggostions as to what [ the new linited Canada should be called, and the discussion was left over till next day. The next morning Sir Leonard, reading his Bible, according to custom, reached Psalm 72, verse 8: "He shall have dominion from sea to soa, and from tho river unto the ends of ! the earth." At once the thought oc-I curred to him that tho word "Domin-I ion" would be a splendid name. He suggested it that morning at the con-! vention, and it was agreed to, and Canada was called the "Dominion of Canada." 8. C. SPRUCE FOR AIRPLANES.
