I have also ONE GOOD TWO YEAR OLD BULL and a few good BULL CALVES. DUNCAN MARSHALL OLDS ALBERTA (CONTINUED PKOM FRONT Cranbrook, E. C.r con- dition? on St. Mary's prairie are ideal. The warm weather of the past month 'has brought the growth on marvel- lously. Some fields will average 45 f bushels to the acre in wheat. Fann- ers are now cutting hay and fodder crops, alfalfa being an exceptionally heavy yield. Farm labor is still scarce. Major Walker, of Calgary, was in this week making arrangements 'for the securing of recruits for the Forestrv battalion. The major is look- iing for able-bodied lumbermen who desire to go overseas and work in the forests of the old land. Recruiting will be carried 011 in the province of i1 Alberta and Eastern British Columbia J. F. Armstrong, water commission- er of British Columbia, held a session of the board of investigation at the government building Monday after- noon.

Parks Co.. received word from the old land today informing that his brother Clifford had been killed in action. There are four brothers serving with the colors. Pope Benedict has interceded in fav- or of Sir Roger Casement, endeavoring to obtain grace for him from the Brit- government. Influential Irish Nationalists have urged the pope to do all in his power to save Sir Roger, saying they do not consider him a traitor to the British cause, but in- spired in his actions by Irish patriot- ism. The pope, in addition 10 the in- thiont'G he is exerting in London, has interested Sir Henry Howard, the Brit- ish minister at the Vatican in case. the best summer's work they have ever had. Hut. if the ton per cent. In- crease in wages is granted the men the mine owners in this Hold will have to raise tlu> price of their product? with the result that they will lose the ndvantage thev have iust gained over the U. S. operators, and the summer business will fall off. Thus the min- ers will lose more In summer wajies than they will gain by a ten per cent, increase. The Herald, however, understands from union otlU'laU tlmt they have considered this phase of the qtiesllop and believe it will not make any diff- erence. They will return to the oper- ators with their demand for a straight ten per cent, increase in wages: Some Return at Fernte to lli? Feruiu, B. C.. July ninety I per cent of the miners went to work lihis morning but the coke oven men j are still out and insist upon their 1 claims, and there is ;t deadlock in consequence. Negotiating at Fcrnie Fernie. July has been i one of activity so far as negotiations j are concerned. A few men more than 'yesterday went to work, but the driv-j ers were still obdurate. A meeting of haulage men only was held at four; o'clock and it was announced at the j adjournment that they had voted to return to work pending further negot- j iaiious regarding an increase in pay. Endeavors to get the Coke oven j men to return to work are now being i exercised and if the result is equally successful the mines will soon be go- ing again at full blast. The district executive have been diligently at work through it all to keep the men at work and to keep the j question of an increase open though this will be accomplished further consideration. U now looks as throughout the district, much depend- j ing unon the action of the operators in meeting the new situation. A feeling; of relief is felt hare tinged only-by minors that the trouble would siireatl if negotiations are not resumed. Working at Taber j (Spechil the Tuber. July is no indi- cation as yet of any strike nuiong the miners of this camp. The miners at j the Canada West are not working to-1 I day. having laid off for a day.

The results of the recent "Adver- tise and Smile" contest conducted by the "Herald, have been announced to- day by D- H. Eltpn.jpolice magistrate, who acted as judge in the contest. The first prize winner is William West- cott aged years. The second is Dorothy Wakelen age lu years and the third is Jamie Deuoon. Mr. Elton has the following to say regarding the contest: "To judge a contest of the nature of "Advertise and Smile" when there are so many excellent contributions is about as difficult and unsatisfactory as judging a "baby show" at a "coun- try fair." as there is no court of appeal other than the reading public, one can but1 do his duty. In the contest there are two points (real- ly one one, but phased under two .headings) namely 1st. to so interpret the word "smile" as to the advantages of advertising in the Herald; 2nd, to the benefits a store Deceives by put- ting its store news before the people. You will observe .the selections I have made that these bear out partic- ularly those two features. There are number of others almost eciual to these and in fact all the contributions were exceptionally good and deserving of special mention. In the contribution which J have awarded 1st jam sentences arc all complete, intelligent, crisp and pithy, and tell a fairly good story in few words. The second prize Dorothy the same expressions and thought and carries out the paramount idea of smile gen- erating and pleasing results. In the third prize winner, Jamie have deviated hut my judg- ment in this particular one is based upon the completed sentence using all the letters of thV woril "smile" as initial lett The following are the replies of the winners in the contest: First Prize Advertise and smile, the Herald ads bring to its patrons a big that means j the goods. big profits. to. trade. the people to your store. results.
