Sold and Guaranteed bjr McKELVlJL McGUIRR BAKtftt MUST BE OOOO Brs.d Sold in Spoksns Mutt Wtigh Spokane, Wasfcj Juno '5.-- One bun' dred dollars fin and 30 days imprison- ment in the city jail is the maximum peualty for the violation of a city ordinance, just in effect which pro- vides that every loaf of bread offered for gale in Spokane must weigh at least 14 ounces. A. E. Powell, inspec- tor of weights and measures, declares the new law will be enforced to the letter, while dealers are emphatic in saying that eithcj the law will have to be killed or the price of bread must go up. "The matter of increasing the price is optional with the Mr. Powell, said, adding: "During the recent breiul war, when some of the bakers were giving 40 loaves of bread for a dollar, many of the loaves weighed only 10 ounces, though the bakers gained customers under the pretext that their bread was put up in 16-ounce loaves. This is one reason why the passing of such an ordin- ance was made necessary." von Do Make Pastry?

Raymond Mftftrath Lctkbrirfge yw tevc to Mi rcit H to ii 29e far SI JUDGE MADE HIS CLAIM FIRST Lively Scramble for Home- steads at the Land Oice The pages of romance nor the re- cords of the lond rushes of America can give no more interesting incident than one that transpired in tho city through the long hours of Sunday night and the lengthening hours of Monday morning. The hero was an old and feeble man and the stake the northeast quarter of section thirteen township nineteen, range twenty-one, and the old man won. The old man, George Rodney Wright; generally known as Judge Wright, from the fact that in the early seventies he held the position of judge of jMontgonicry County, His souri, came to Lethbridge about eigh. years ago with his nephew George Talbot, a well known rancher of the Little Dow country. After .living here a year or so he wen back on the ranch and in .190-Lhe HI cd on a homestead near Wolf Coulee it was not much good so. he threv it up. 13ut that has nothing to do witl the N.E. quarter of 13: 19: 21. A man named on tui quarter but at the end of three years the department cancelled it as he ha not fulfilled the homestead duties, having less than five acres broke and no other improvements. In th meantime the country had Filled .u rapidly. The flourishing little tow of Bovi-ville is only a mile away. Th quarter is valuable, twenty-five hunt drcd dollars being a low valuation as it is a choice piece .of land. But' he had lost it. He determined to make a last elTort to regain it, though several were after it, among them the hero of the story. The quarter was open for re-entry yesterday morning and the first man in the land oflicc would get it. The old judge, with his nephew, Geo. Tal- bot, and a young friend Jack, were early on the scene, getting across the river before the flood was at its height. Reynolds delayed his coming but with his friends got in late, Sun- day evening, having to cross the swollen river on a raft. Several oth- ers also were on deck. When he arrived at the Land Office door determined to camp for the night, he found the old judge and Jlr. Talb'ot there ahead of him. But in the course of the early night the city policeman with his "move on" orders hove in sight and ordered the party away. Reynolds from the dis- tance, saw his chance, went around the court house, jumped the fence and at half past eleven had the oflice door held by both hands. J. L. Manwar- ing, a local newspaper man, got in- terested in the game and assisted the pair to get Reynolds beguiled away, for it certainly was as wrong for one man to camp on Ihc land office steps as it -is for another and the police have their "move-on" orders. Exit Mr. Reynolds. TCntcr tho Judge and party, the judge enrobed in a fur coat ready to stand min or cold, moonlight or darkness to win that homestead. Very carl> in the morning, about "five o'clock the judge's pnrty reassembles anf the door more firmly, and slowly, o very slowly, the minutes puss, ;roken occasionally by the jests of he central party and the dozen oth- rs around the door on the same rrand. At last the key turns in the lock ind the "door swings open. The judge SUNDAY SPLINTERS HIS PULPIT Baseball Player Evangelist Exponuds Gospel He Would Bat Home Run Sharon, Pa., June Rev. Billy Sunday, the ex-professional haseball player, closed a series of re- vival meetings at the Tabernacle here on Sunday. He got so excited preen- ing to a large audience, and was so intent on leaving an impression on his converts after he left the city, that he pounded the hardwood .pulpit into splinters with his fiat. He pulled .off a large sliver of wood from the desk and beat the air with it to emphasize his remarks. He would grasp the stick like a batter facing the pitcher, measure the distance with his beat the air as if pounding out a three bagger.

June Grand Trunk' railroad is considering the idea of taking over the Wabash-Pitts- burg Terminal Railway as soon as it can be taken from the receivers. .It develops that forty-eight hours before the public auouncement of the receivership, officials of the Grand Trunk made a thorough inspection of this property in a special train fur- nished by orders of George J. Gould. It is understood that one of the party which made the inspection will go direct to London with his report. It is also said that the Grand Trunk will not touch the property unless access can be gained to the Atlantic seaboard from Pittsburg, something that the Goxilds failed to obtain.

COMPLETE HOUSE FURNISHEtS Editor of the Herald: is suggested by tv resident of Lethbridgc Rho has had conversation with a good many of our visitors (luring t.hc pnst week that some ac- tion ought to be taken to imxovu the drainage system of the city, us the present condition creates copjiUl- crable unfavorable comment from outsiders. For instance, a visitor to the city tho past two or three could readily see that we were having good heavy ruins, but they say ilv. surely do not expect heavy- rains or more preparation would be made for taking care of the water so that it not stand in puddles n the streets and run into cellars. NTow, with the position of the city, o high above the river level, it ap- to them that the city hns cv- ry advantage for the best kind of drainage, and in order to prevent un-j avorable comment and avoid the drawing of such wrong conclusions the part of strangers it does seem that the matter should be taken in hand and properly worked out. Not only that, but surely there arc few citrons of the city take much pleasure in wading around in the mud when they consider it should not be necessary. Yours, etc., A New Comer.
