He is moreover modest and gave "his interviewer to understand that he did not wish aay unneces- sary fuss made over his achievements.

There is some speculation as to the probable action of the Great Northern in case the rate is cancelled, and there has been a growing feeling-that a summary can- cellation will result in the Hill inter- ests casting longing eyes toward, Leth- bridgo with a view to building a Hue from Coutts to this city as possible in order to keep this avenue of traffic open to them.

With nearly 5.- 000 acres of wheat in western coun- ties, he will have a crop o-i approxi- bushels, which will bring him between and 000 when the wheat is marketed. He expects to get not less thau a bushel. Mr. Trousdale has been growing wheat several years, but never before such a large acreage. .This .year he Las eight full'sections and some smal- ler patches, several of which he leas- ed last fall in. the belief that this wculd be a banner year in wheat. Earlier in the year he expected to get. nearly bushels, but some of, the 'wheat was winter, killed, cut- ting down his acre average, which will .be a litlle over twenty bushels.

Goes a T-bone at seventy-five cents per constitute a dinner in. the eyes oC.the law more than a dish of ice cream and a piece fluffy cake? Chief Gillespie is racking- his brain to answer-those questions. He wants to know whether the restaurants in the city have the right to remain op- en on Sunday, so right to r( tfcf they may sell ice cream and other -frozen d-elicacies or not. He fought, the question out in court some years ago, and wun out; then the Attorney-General's depart- ment took a hand in the matter, and the fines in every conviction were ordered refunded to the parties con ceTned. Now it looks as if the whole contro- versy is to be re-oponed. Several of tho .clergy of .the, city have been en- tering strenuous protests .with the po- lice against the ice cream emporiums remaining open for business on Sun- day; They believe .that the police should prosecute. But the police can- not prosecute without a document from the Attorney-General, called IV fiat. A fiat is a formidable document, just as .formidable as its name. :K allows all hinds of prosecutions un- der the Lord's Day Observance Act. And now the Chief believes thai will be issued allowing the po- lice in every city in the province to prosecute these who sell ice cream on Sundr.y. Some time ago the local by the clergy of the city, obtained necessary evidence .to lay. '-nrgos against several ice cream in the city, should the ne- cessa-ry fiat be granted. The: fiats were not granted at the' time, 'as a test case 'was under w'ay in Calgary, and the Attorney-General Wished 'to await, the decision -of the test case. Yesterday .Magistrate Saiiders in the Calgary police court, decided that a dish of. ice cream did not. constitute even on Sunday and fined a restaurant keeper the -mini- ium fine of one dollar and costs for dlslii.'.'j Out the (jellcacy contrary to the Lord's Day Act. With this case as a precedent for the province likely that fiats which have been applied for will be granted, and in that case there will be'several prosecutions in Lethhridge. The ice cream retailer in Calgary. -'riot; satisfied with..the .decision .of the Calgary magistrate and has ap- pealed the case. It may. be .that the fiats will be withhold 'pending the appeal case, and in tho meantime those wishing to cool their burning thirsts on Sunday will be able to do so.
