A splendid job has been made of the grading through the lake in the vicinity of.Chas. McCarty's farm east of Raymond on the Stirling and New Dayton road. The lake has been drained and u road graded through so that traffic does not now need to divert itself around the lake. It was decided at the service in the Presbyterian church on Sunday last to change the hour of the service from 7.30 at night to 11 o'clock in the morning. This change was made at the request of the New Dayton appointment, which is much larger than Raymond, and is composed mostly of a farming community of young people who prefer a service in the evening, A leak has just recently been closed up in the water main along Broadway near the Card Hotel, and Supervisor Harris says there is another leak in the same vicinity. This is a very serious condition to be in, Mr. Harris believing that owing to some irregularity in the laying of the pipe lines there will probably be trouble all over the town from the same quarter. He is instituting a thorough investigation, and his actions are being endorsed by the town council. W. Vaughan left for Magrath on Tuesday with two-chair shop fixtures loaded on L. O.

AlcKenney of the seed and weed branch of the de partment of agriculture of the province of Alberta, with reference to the worm which in some districts is working such havoc to the growing grain. From the description given, Air. AlcKenney seems to be of the opinion that it Is one of the several pecimens of cut worm, and he recommends the poison bran mixture 'as the only practical remedy. The recipe he gave is as follows: "Take one half pound of and thoroughly mix with 50 pounds of bran. This latter should then be moistened slightly with sweetened water and should be thoroughly stirred until practically every particle of the bran is poisoned."
