PHONE iia MAGRATH BOARD OF TRADE CONCERT WAS ONE OF FINEST EVENT8 EVER PULLED OFF IN THE TOWN Magrath, July 23-The Board of Trade concert, which was held in the Klectric Theatre here last Tuesday evening, was positively the finest musical event ever staged before a local audience, and the splendid audience �that was in attendance was well repaid for their small outlay, and the Board of Trade has a substantial sum to their credit at the bank as a result of the entertainment. Every numbeT was a feature, and the best and most qualified artiste in the town supplied numbers. There were fifteen numbers in all and every performer received an enthusiastic reception. Jt would be unfair to single out any particular person as the star attraction but, of course, the principal soloists were all accorded cordial ovations on their appearance. Lynn Gihb, the sweet voiced baritone, was heard in the famous solo, "The Two Grenadiers," and the best indication of his success in this masterpiece is found in the continued rounds of applause that greeted him on completing the piece, lie rendered the sweet selction "Sylvia," for his encore, William Vaughn, twice winner of the provincial musical contest, gave a magnificent rendition of the "Bandolero." Mr. Vaughn possesses a rich, cultured voice, and it was heard to advantage in the execution of Stuart's masterpiece. On being recalled he rendered most ably "Thy Sentinel Am I." Miss Karren and Miss Vayton gave beautiful vocal selections, and .Mr. Roberts and Mites KaiTen rendered most acceptably "Forest Birds." Miss Sue Stacey did most of the accompaning and did so with her usual skill. In all the concert was a pronounced success, and ] the performers are to he highly commended for their excellent work.

MACBETH AGENCY Loans FIRE INSURANCE Real Estate SHERLOCK BUILDING, LETHBRIDGE Yesterday the regular ward conference of the Magrath ward was held in the opera house, wilh Bishop Levi Harker in charge. There were present all of the members of the stake presidency, Messrs. Allen, Brandley and Snow. The service was largely! attended .and some timely admoni-' tions were given by President Brand-ley, who delivered the address of the! meeting. There were some changes in ! the officers of the different auxiliary organizations of the church. J. C. Bridge and Miss Sue Stacey were succeeded as choirmaster and organist to succeed .1. A. Rasmussen and Mrs. Alston: Mrs. C. Jensen was m.uie president of The Young Ladies' Mutual Improvement association, with Miss! Grace Woolley and Miss Luclla Neil-son as her councillors; Mrs. B. Mat-' kin was made president of the prim-; ary association, with Mrs. Watson and Mrs. J. A. Rasmussen as her councillors. W. H. Ilindl-ey was sustained as president of the Young Men's Mutual Improvement Association, with A. J. Mercer as his first and Asor Brlggs as his second councillor. They were all unanimously sustained by the congregation, and Bishop Harker, who gave his report immediately after, declared that all cf the organizations were now complete and in good working order. In speaking of the meeting house he said that the tenders would close on Monday, and that actual construction work would be instituted \vithouf*fnrther delay. Ellis Heninger Mrs. Woolley and Mrs. Tomlinscn sub mitted reports of th r associations, and it proved to be most interesting. During the service .1. O. Bridge and Miss Grace Woolley rendered most feelingly the sacred duet, "I Will Mag nify Thee." Today tile bids for the new Latter Day Saint Chapel will be opened and the award made. Several bids have been submitted but there is only one tender freni a local firm. Messrs. Roberts and Newton. Much speculation is heard as to whom will land the job. .laved A. Mercer has just received word of his appointment, to the chair of mathematics in the Cassia Stake Academy of Hinkley. Idaho. Mr. Mercer is a Magrath boy and this year took out his B. A. degree in a II. S. university, and his appointment to this post is a signal honcr and testifies to the confidence his teachers have in his ability. He will leave in about a month for Idaho. Mr. -Mercer had an opportunity of entering a law office, well known in this province, at Edmonton, but preferred his old profession for some time yet. Mr. and Mrs. James Stacey last week returned from a mcst enjoyable trip to Idaho, where Mr. Stacey owns a splendid fruit and hay farm. They will not move to Idaho for some time yet. as Mr. Stacey's Interests here prevent him from doing so.

COLEMAN SCHOOL STAFF ENGAGED TORONTO MAN FOR PRINCIPAL �^-WILL HAVE SIX ASSISTANTS CclemaTi. .Inly 29.-The Coleman board of trustees has experienced some difficulty in securing a staff of teachers for the ensuing term of the Coleman public school. Several educators who had made application for positions on the teaching staff later declared their inability to accept. By persistent and unremitting efforts the board has finally succeeded in securing a competent staff of teachers. The fact that a large percent of the pupils are of foreign extraction, being the children of mine workers, made a selection of teachers unusually careful and difficult. The stiff will consist of the following: Principal-H. G. Gray of Toronto, Ontario. Grade teachers: Mi-ss Jessie Hughes of Walford. Ont..-. Miss Margaret McLaughlin, cf Collingwood, Ont.. and Misses W. Ball, F. E. McArthur, A. F,. Ball and A. Dodds, hold-overs from last. term. The Coleman public school contains seven rooms and tbey are all filled. It is only a question of time when an addition to the present commodious school building will be necessary to accommodate the pupils. BROKE L008E AT REGINA WRIST FRACTURED DRIVING AN AUTO Almonte, July L'fl.- Miss Gilles. of Pakenham, had a wrist hrcken yesterday afternoon while driving her automobile up Main street here. In some manner her arm was jammed in the steering gear nft*r she had lost control of the machine. Dr. Kelly was iu attendance and reduced the fracture Regina. July 29.-Though at present lacking official confirmation it is reported that a sensational escape was affected on the night of the 2fith from the Mounted Police barracks when �;wo prisoners, Victor Armstrong, alias Sjorgen. and Demitro N'arzon, both under sentence, escaped from the guard room while guard was making his- rciinda. Blood hounds, which arc kept at. the bairacks. were placed on the men's trail but lost the scent at the creek where the men crossed and were uiir.ble to pick it up again. Mean while the police are scouring the country for the runaways, whose re-cauture is looked for at any moment PROTEST AGAINST NOXIOUS WEEDS FARMERS DEMAND MORE. AND BETTER INSPECTION-MORE ELEVATORS FOR BURDETT Burdett. July 25.-A largely aliened meeting of the Burdett Farmers' Elevator and Trading Company, Limited, was held on Saturday last. The general opinion was that, considering the enormous crop to be handled at this point this year, a farmers' elevator was essential. Promises of financial support were freely given. The directors, as a result of the meeting, have arranged for a systematic canvass of the district during the next few dayB, and at a meeting to be held next Saturday, the question will be finally settled as to building this year. Contractors who would wish to tender for the work should get in com-tojunteation with the secretary at ence, as if it is decided to build, there will- be little time to advertise for tenders. The tumbling mustard question is very serious all.through this district. The inspector has much too large a territory to do anything like justice to. Where a small farmer Is at home it is very easy for him to be notified to clear his land, but in the case of absentee owners and the larger farms little or nothing is done. . In some cases orders are given for the weeds to' be mowed, but in the opinion of practical farmers this is much worse than letting them stand, as it only means that they at once blow on to the neighboring land. This is a most serious question, and one that should have the immediate attention of the department. On Friday evening a largely attended meeting was held in the Highfleld School district, which is about fourteen miles south of this town.' There the farmers unanimously passed resolutions protesting against the way in which the noxious weed inspection was .being worked, and a copy was sent to the deputy minister of agriculture at Edmonton, in the hope that further inspectors might be appointed, and that instructions would be issued for the large farms to have particular attention as well as the small-j er ones. j Preparations for handling the large j crop which is quickly ripening, are being rapidly completed. Every day | binders are seen, leaving the town, j accompanied by large quantities of ! twine. Up to the present there does not appear to be any likelihood of a. twine shortage, but already farmers from the two towns on either side are coming in for their supplies, presumably because they get better service here. We are glad to see that another line elevator has Etarted to build. More are needed. Last week one of the prominent restaurant keeper* from Bow Island decided to change his location, and will open up an up-to-date place here. Speculation is rife as to the intentions of tbe school trustees, respecting the teaching staff for the coming winter. The opinion is strong that the late teacher should be reengaged, but that she requires help, as the numbers are rapidly growing. Vegetables are a good crop this year, and if only some one would supervise the handling of it, a ready market could be found in the large towns, which now rely on B. C. for [ their supplies. Already many of the farmers are trying to obtain a direct market fcr butter and eggs in Lethbridge, which is the natural place for ithem to sell. Freight rates are. however, high, and the best accommodation for delivery has not yet been secured. The town has been .full during the last week of men who are proceeding to and from their work on the gas wells, which are immediately north of town. It is time these wells should be spoken of as the Burdett wells, instead of Bow Island. The Alberta Grain Growers are erecting an elevator here today, and there is every prospect of the farmers erecting another in a very short time, canvassers are out in the district now-getting subscriptions for their company. This will make three elevators at this point and as many as any station has along the line. The lBSt gas well bored here by the C. P. R. has proved the largest yet, and they are boring yet another which is only about 2 miles from Burdett. It is stated that they keep moving this way. away from the river with the intention of getting away from the strongest flow of gas, where they expect to be able to get oil. Crops in this district never looked better, the yield will be equal to or better than last year and in addition they are so well forward that there i* very-little danger of frost, cutting will be-j gin on a great many farms in about j two weeks. Flax looks exceptionally | well and should yield a large crop o.' | first class .grain. The farmers intend erecting a gro-| eery store in connection with their' elevator where the shareholders can, get their goods at. cost. We had heavy storms of rain here last Tuesday and Wednesday, which was just what was wanted and finished off the growing crops in great shape Third Avenue Business Site--3 lots block 14 Revenue Producing 4 ASQUITH & LINDSEY ^ Ileal Estate & Financial Broken OOMINION BLOOK.

ECONOMIZING AT CARD-8TON AN6 OTHER POINTSMAN INTERESTING LADY Cardston, .July 29.-A very interest* ing passenger on this morning!s train was Mrs. Erastus Snow, wife of one of the early prophets of the Mormon church. Mrs. Snow has recently returned from the east, where she had not visited for 70 years. Going, back to her old town she asked not to be directed to her old home, and without assistance after 70 years' absence she walked to the door of a house and said, "Here's where 1 was born and raised." Mrs. Snow is on her way back to Utah after a visit with Cardston friends. In keeping with a policy laid down hy the C.P.R. the electric lights hare been removed Irom the station here. The company have been giving attention lately to the rate charged at different points on their system. Swift Current and other places hate undergone a change similar to Cardston. The lights will be much missed both by the employees and the travelling public during the winter months, especially since the train from the north arrives at such a late hour at night. An effort is being made to get a delegation from each town south -of Lethbridge to meet and make arrangements for a large musical festival to be held in one of the towns rather than severe 1 festivals in each. Cardston now holds five nice shields and one more win will keep them south of Lethbridge. A concerted effort should be made not to let these trophies go north again. The agricultural society and town are still planning to have the race track and agricultural grounds in shape for the fall exhibition. H. C. Phipps and Wm. Duce visited Raymond recently and looked over Rav-mond track, a plan of which has since been received from .Supervisor of Public Works Harris. Miss Wilson, teacher at Gleichen, and her sister, Miss M. Wilson, of Medirirc Hat, both daughters of the of Brands for AVrrta, were v'sitors to Cardston on Saturday, driving from null Horn with E.
