JOHN TIMOTHY Maybutt Post Odico Big Budget From Raymond (Continued from page Don Skouson, nnd these, together with Instructor and Mrs. Nye and In- structor and Mrs. Poulson, and the............... members of the junior class, .formed! from one the oest colleges in.Utah, a very happy throng. The' evenin was spent all too 'quickly, -Many en the next two weeks, (he.choir of the liaymond second ward will be con- ducted under the direction of .James Walker, a vocalist with some reputa- tion. Next Friday ovening a social will bo given in the new ward meeting house, to which the public is cordially invited to attend. This 'will take the form of an opening soc- ial, and it is expected that a large number of people will be in attend- ance. What premises the greatest gathering oi' Sunday School workers ever held in the Taylor Stak-e of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, will be held in the Knight Ac- ademy building here next Sunday. Two sessions 'will be held, the first convening at 9.2u a.m., and the sec- ond at 2 p.m. A prayer meeting will also be Jield at I' o'clock sharp. Supt. B-ruinwell, of the Stake, informed a Herald representative that he expect- ed fully seventy-five per cent, of the Sunday school workers under his jur- isdiction to be present. The event has been widely advertised, personal letters having been addressed to -the Stake presidency, the bishopric of every ward, and all in any way connected with the Sunday school cause. The General Board at Salt Lake are extremely rigid in .the matter of attendance, and a full re-, port wil be forwarded to them imme- diately after the convention is over, enumerating in detail just 'who were, present, ami what was done at the sessions. It is thought that this will stimulate the officers and teachers in'the several wards to put -forth a double effort to attend the conference, as it is not a desirable thing to allow their names to be sent in as being lax in their duties. The corridors of the usually live Ac- ademy will soon be deserted, the .school year being concluded, and the students having thrown aside books and pencils, to pursue the more pro- saic affairs ot life. All are glad the is done, especially since every student who wrote passed tlve examin- ations successfully. The faculty, too, are delighted with the year's work, and are now in a position to thorough- ly enjoy their well-deserved holiday. Instructor Wetzel, who has made a host of friemls during her sojourn here, severs her ccnneciion with the institution, as does also' Instructor Wright, who has accomplished such a wonderful work in the domestic sci- ence and arts department. Their fut- ures are a little uncertain as yet, al- though it is rumored that the latter will take up her residence in Nevada, where the Woolfs will reside. Another serious loss to the Academy will be that of Instructor Rasmusscn, Miss RasmusEen Is a most thorough teacher in her lines, and her absence will be keenly felt in the class room and the social and literary life of the Institution, It is with pleasure that we announce that president Bramwell will continue as head o'-r the institution for at least one mor-e term. It was fen red at. one lime that the board would lose Prof, Bramwell, as he bad a spl-sndid offer tertaiuing games were .indulged in, and a splendid toast list carried out, President Steele, of the junior class, acting as toastnmster. At eleven light refreshments, consisting of sandwiches, saiad, cake and ice cream 'were daintily served by the charming young ladies of the junior class. Tho luncheon was an outstanding feature of Ihe evening's program, and the. re- freshment committee is certainly to be commended for the excellence of the viands. It was midnight before good-byes n'ere said, and the guests departed for their homes. The affair will long remain memory of those who were so fortunate as to be in attendance, and-it, was ci suitable conclusion to the season at the Acad- emy. Rev. Hubert. W. Toombs preached an inspiring sermon on Sunday even- ing in the Presbyterian church. His subject was "Honoring God." Mr. Toombs is a- convincing speaker and is greatly pleasing the congregation of whom he is minister. In the absence of C, 13. Strong He, however, refused, after consulta- tion with the authorities of the church and the church school sys- tem, while in Salt. Lake City several months ago. In conversation with the Herald the president made the following sUitoment; I am go- ing to slay. I want to see the Knight put on a good, solid nnd enduring foundation. We have had a most suc- cessful year, and I am entirely pleas- ed with results of the year's work. The stafff has bad it sternnous season but they have been junply repaid in seeing students go through tholr final tests with honors. We will have :i nice class writing on the govern- ment examinations.' I look for them all to get through." In announcing his faculty to the Herald man. President Brain well iimiiMi iiiat, li Tvtla nil uxCuiniunuiiy strong one, all_. the members being eminently Iltled for their special de- partments. BUYS STAFFORD HOTEL .r. A. .lobnyon of Dresden has pur- chased the Itoyfcl Hotel, Stratford. WATER Good Wells Struck East of News of Junction Town Stirliilg. June Additional cas- ing has arrived for the well which Hie C. i'. H. liaye sunk on the townsite twenty-live miles east of Stirling. An abundant water supply tias been se- cured at 300 feet, the: water coming up to a point within four feet of the top. An endeavor has been made to pump out the well, but this has been fount! impossible. The finding of wa- ter at this point will mean much to the sale of tile townsite because the problem throughout homestead country, east of all the Stirling and New Dayton been a serious one, and it is quite, probable that be- fore putting tile townsite on the mar- ket the C. P. R. will sink a well to be used for town purposes. The well just completed willlje for the use of engines" only. W. T. Nichols on Satur- day from a trip to' his old' home at Morning Sun', Iowa! "HeJ also visited Burlington, Sioux fety, 'Sloan', Iowa, and Omaha, Neb. 'Asked with regard to crop thf States, Mr. said that his 'home state, Iowa, that they wer.e having very dry weather, and crops are being serious- ly affected. Most 'of 'the corn in his part of the state has required re- seeding, and rain comes very soon the second prop 'will bave the same fate as the 'first." Mr. Nichols told the Herald that during his three weeks' visit in tbis state that he car- ried with lilm this year's annual pub-. licity number of the Lethbrldge Daily Herald, and when American farmers were wanting to discredit some of his statements regarding Alberta ag- riculture, Mr. Nichols produced his printed matter to prove his state- ments. Since rehiniing to Stirling he is more satisfied than ever and is asking a considerable 'advance .in price for the reai estate "which .he owns between the station and the town. Rev. H. Tootnbs, Mr. -Tail's suc- cessor of the Presbyterian Church at Stirling, preached -for- ithe first time on .Sunday evening. The service at New yi Dayton and Raymond have exchanged time, Jir. Toombs being at the Sunday school service at Stirling shortly after two o'clock, Mr. Barber, civil engineer for the C. P. R., arrived in Stirling on Mon- day night, and was driven by Nels Nelson to Timothy's construction camp, from which point, in company with John Timothy, contractor for the line, and H. W. Tye, resident engineer, fie will make a tour of the line for the purpose of inspecting the work, and. .will also take over the which .the .con- tractors have completed'for the C, P. R. Co., on the ton-uslte miles east of Stirling. In conversation with a. prominent Stirling citizen on Monday, the Her- ald was told of a man, once a resi- dent of Stirling who had driven from here to New Mexico, and has again, lie remarked to the Herakl's informant that he was to get back to "Sunny Southern Al-j" and that in air the country j A traversed was none that would] compare with this province. The statement of ibis'man is significant. Driving through, a country one sees and knows.the country in a way that be could riot do otherwise. This man's experience is certainly a boost for Alberta. The Magratb baseball team, visited Stirling between trains on Saturday last, 'en route for Warner, where they received a bad trimming at the hands of the.Warner team. They en- gaged in a little practice on the sta- tion here, in which some of the Stir- ling people joined them. Stirling is given a prominent place in a rather extensive crop report ap- j pear ing in yesterday's Herald, Noth- ing was .said' of the abundant alfalfa no'w almost ready to in the vicinity of the town. Stirling's alfal- fa never looked better, and with the possibility of; Irrigation water, an ab- undant -srop will be. cut. Raymond. Knight's -buiich of sheep are pasturing in the district ad; jacent to Stirling, and a portion of them arc being taken back to their old grazing ground. Ed. Dudley was in from his camp on Monday, with an injured arm, re- sulting from his 'falling' off the grad- ing engine. Dr. Keillor attended the 'injured member, n. C. Harvey has just shipped 800 sheep to Pat'Burns, at Calgary. The] sheep are to be slaughtered for local; use, and for'shipment to the Burns'; B. C. markets. John Timothy, railway contractor; on the Stiriing-Weyburn line, arriv- ed from Edmonton on Saturday, ac- companied by his little son. There seems to be no clue as yet as to who the culprits wore who ef-; fected the -post office robbery. No! stone has been left unturned to se-j cure this information, but as yet all efforts seem of no avail. Gangs of men are at work along1 the'Cardstpn branch, and also along j the main line of the old A. R. system, cleaning- the ditches, paraJH eling the tracks, and putting the road bed in a somewhat better shape. W. T. Nichols returned on Satur- day from a. trip to his old home nt Morning Sun, Iowa. He also visited j Burlington, Sioux City, Sloan, Iowa, and Omaha, Neb. Asked with regard lo crop conditions In the States, -Mr. Nichols said that in his home State, Iowa, they were having dry and-the crops are being seriously fected. Most of tho corn in his part! of the State has required re-seeding, j and unless rain comes very soon, the second crop will have the same fate! as. the first. Mr. Nichols told Una j Herald that during his three weeks' j visit In this Stale, that he carried j with him this year's Annual Publicity i number ot the Lethbridge Daily Her- ald, and when American farmers: were wanting to discredit some of his j statements "regarding .Alberta agrlcul-; tnre, Mr. Nichols produced bis print-! ed matter to prove- bis Since returning to Stirling he ia more satisfied .than ever, and Is asking a considerable .advance in price for the real estate which he owns between the stf-tion and the town.
