Limited (From Bow Island Review) During tho storm on Tuesday \night lightning struck the Liddie barn, north of town, and In addition to damaging the building, nearly resulted In a fatality. About naif a dozen boys were in the barn at the time seeking shelter, and one.of these, Harold Llddlo, age about 1*. was struck by lightning ami thrown to the ground in an unconscious condition. A. horse standing near was also struck and knocked down. At first grave fears were entertained that Liddie hnd received n fatal injury, but nfter a while both he and the horse recovered consciousness, and apparently were little the worse for their alarm ing experience. The barn had a large hole torn in the north end and Was considerably damaged. G. C. Cropley, our local builder, sustained a rather bad accident Inst Tuesday, when a scaffolding upon which he with three or four other men were working gave way and threw them to the ground. Mr; Crop ley received an injury to his ankle and is now confined to his house. Another man, P. Hallett, was also hurt but not seriously. ' The Burdett hotel was opened by E. Brown for the first time on Wednesday, and judging from the remarks made by the people who patronize the establishment we should imagine it will supply a "long felt want." The hotel is as yet not quite completed, and it will take several more days ere it will be quite ready to accommodate the public. GLENGARRY RANCH BUYS HEREFORDS AT FANCY PRICES BOW ISLAND (Prom the Review) The dry weather of the past few-weeks was beginning to affect the crops injuriously, and the rain on Tuesday was therefore, more than welcome. As a whole, except on the land sown late, farmers are fairly well satisfied with the prospect, and at present we have good reason to hope for an excellent yield. Operations have been discontinued at No. 18 by the Canadian Western Natural Gas Co. The hole is what is technically termed a "dry one." We understand that in all probability no further steps will be taken to get gas further west, but that the activity of the company will be devoted to drilling in a more south-easterly direction. At last night's meeting of the town council it was decided to fix the tax rate for the ensuing year at twenty-five mills. It was announced on Monday night at the dance that a sum of over $1,100 had been realized for the Red Cross as a result of the day's celebration. The expenses, however, will have to be taken out of this, leaving a balance for the society possibly of six or seven hundred dollars. E. G. Allen, who for some time occupied a position at the Review office, has accepted th� position ot managing editor of the Bassano Mail. BLAIRMORE (From the Enterprise) Two boys, aged 10 and 15 years, appeared before Justices Beebe and Pinkney on Saturday morning last, charged with stealing copper 'wire, the property of the West Canadian Collieries. The boys pleaded guilty to the charge and admitted having sold the to local junk dealers. They were each given six months' suspended sentence. A rather serious fire occurred on Sunday night in the Paden rooming house on State street, which with Us contents was practically demolished. Fire is supposed to have originated from a defective electric wire passing through some of the back rooms, which were practically gutted before the flames could break loose. The damage done would amount to about $1,000, which we understand is partly covered by insurance. W. Hilton, formerly with the Franco-Canadian Collieries Co., at Frank, has accepted a position aB engineer with the West Canadian Collieries at Blairmore. TABER (From the Times) Corp. Caswell, of the provincial police, who was assisted by Chief Faulds, was successful this morning in securing convictions for violating the liquor act against Geo. H. Anderson and his son, Geo. W. Anderson, of Barnwell. Both were fined $50 and costs. These cases were to have been heard on Saturday last, but at the request of defendants were laid over until today to enable them to have their lawyer, R. A. Smith, of Leth-bridge, present. In the second caBe, that of Geo. W. Anderson on the same charge, the witnesses were the same and the evidence practically the same. Defendants' council claimed in this case also that no case had been made out, but the magistrates again thought different and assessed the same fine. It. A. Smith, council for the defendants, gave notice that an appeal would be taken in both cases. RAYMOND (From the Leader) Modern authors are often criticized for the use of coincidents. One critic has said that the writer of today would be helpleas without these handy scenes. But Mrs, Wltbeck firmly believes that guch event* do take place. In fact she has seen It (From Our Own Cor--�svom1.-nti Claresholm, July 11.-About HO cars from Claresholm district left here Monday and Tuesday for the Medicine Hat stampede. Wm.

A hall storm passed west and south west of town last evening, doing considerable damage to u very small area of country. Tito long looked for street grading has started and it will not bo long before our streets will take on a different aspect. High prices for pure brod cattle has been tho rago for some little time past with cattle fanciers, but the honors np to date will have to be handed tho Glengarry Ranch, Co. of Claresholm for a time at least. This progressive ranch nre expecting a shipment of pure bred Herefords bought at the Harris Hereford sale which was recently hold at Harris, Mo.

The Glengarry Ranch are going into the Hereford breed of cattle very extensively. We are sorry to report the serious accident which happened to Nels C. Olsen on Tuesday last. Ho was driving along the road and being a little deaf, he did not hear a runaway team coming from behind. The runaways turned out to pass him but one wheel of the wagon caught the buggy, throwing Mr. Olsen heavily to the ground. The extent of his injuries are not known as yet.
