DREWRY, LIMITED Winnipeg - - Manitoba' 27 CELESTIAL DIES AFTER ANOTHER SlIICIDALATTEWIPT Breaks Water Glass In Hospital and Slashes His Arms and L�gs (From Our Own Cori-osuondint) Plnchcr Crook, July 20.-In splto of tho efforts of our physicians and hospital staff to keep our suicide Celestial alive, ho died on Thursday. After being taken to hospital ho asked for water, and then broko tho glass on tho bed and with a long narrow ploce of glass clenched In his hand ho proceeded to slash his arms and body. Mr. Held, who had him in care had a moBt Htrenuous time persuading him to desist. The funeral took place this aftor-noon at the Plnchcr Creek cemetery, a number of his countrymen acting as pallbearers and accompanying his brother, and save tho laying of a brick wrapped in paper at tlio foot of tho codln which won lowered to the grave without tho usual sholl, and a brief chattering In their natlvo tongue, luore was no ceremony, tho friends of the deceased having stated that they did not wish a clergyman's services, morely wanted Mr. Hood, our undertaker, who was accompanied by several townsmen on his weird mission. The grave is beside that of A. Bathgate, who suicided horo last fall. This seems to be the "promised land" or at least the stopping off place for a number of most stalwart species of mankind, for several days strange men in groups of from three to eleven havo sauntered around or lined up on tho steps of the old Alberta Hotel. They may be a delegation of farm work aoekerB, or possibly on a keen watchout for a recruiting officer, as one chap seems vory patriotic - wearing a red, white and blue sport hat. However be their mission what it may; they remind one very greatly of tho "proverbial frog". In these days of stress there doesn't seem to be any need or excuse for any one but an invalid to be "sitting around." COUNCIL MEETS fFrom Our Own Correspondent) Blairmore, July 20.-A meeting of the Dlalrmoro branch, Canadian Patriotic Fund, was held on Wednesday and was attended by a large majority of the members of tho committee. Some important business was transacted and representatives wore appointed to attend the annual meeting of the South Alberta Branch, C.P.F., which wilt be held in Calgary, on Thursday, August 2nd. Tho secretary, J. B. Harmer, and Mr. J. K. Gillis were appointed to attend this meeting. Following is the report of tho secretary-treasurer of the finances of the branch for the six months ended June 30th, 1917: Receipts Balance on hand, 1916...... $63.15 West Canadian Colliers, em- ploynos.................. 730.40 West Canadian Collieries, office staff............. 125.15 McLaren Lumber Co. employees .................. 348.00 Town subscriptions ......... 521.00 Other subscriptions ......... 100.00 Total...... .........11,887.70 Disbursements Sent to South Alberta Branch C.P.F.............. Printing and Postago .. Incidental expenses .... Balance onhaiHi....... .$1,800.00 25.50 42.00 20.20 Total ... ... .........$1887.70 People's Forum DENIES STATEMENT The following letter has been re coived by The Herald from Capt. Mc Caskill, chaplain of the 12th Brigade in France, denying statements alleg ed to have been made recently in Lethbridge. The chaplain evidently has been misinformed, as The Herald has no knowiedgo of the spoaker referred to making any such remarks in Lethbridge at any time. Editor, The Lethbridge Herald. Sir,-I saw an extract from a, letter a few days ago received by. one of our boys from his home In Lethbridge, in which it 1b stated that a certain Capt. Itoid in the Anglican church there, made the charge that a large proportion of our soldier J In Franco contracted diseases from contact with French women, whom, he stated, were nearer the front line than tho Y.M.C.A. Tho statement is a slander on the French women and on the Canadian soldiers. The battalion to which the man that received this letter is attached, has not had one case of disease of this nature in the course of a year's fighting in France. So there you are. The preacher could count all the cases of this naturo in the Canadian corps on the fingers of both hands and his long ears, If by chance the fingers are not sufficient, I would suggest that when the good people of Lethbridge, on the Sabbath Day loose this ass from the stall and lead him away to braying that they llrst whiBper in IiIb ear to refrain from slandering the boys who are bearing a somewhat heavy burden with a nobility of soul that Btunds without a parallel in history.
