Don Skouson, and these, together with Instructor and Mrs. Nye and Instructor and Mrs. Poulson, and the members of the junior class, formed a very happy throng. The evening was spent all too quickly. Many entertaining games were indulged in, and a splendid toast list carried out, President. Steele, of the junior class, acting as toastiuaster. At eleven light refreshments, consisting of sandwiches, saiad, cakn and ice cream 'were daintily served by the (harming young ladies of the junior class. The luncheon was an outstanding feature j cessful year, and I am entirely pleas- the next two weeks, the. choir of the Raymond second ward will be conducted under the direction of .lames Walker, a vocalist with some reputation. Next Friday -evening a social, will be given in the new second ward meeting house, to which the public is cordially invited to attend. This will take the form of an opening social, and it is expected that a large number of people will be in attendance. What promises to,, be the greatest gathering of Sunday School workers ever held in the Taylor Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, will he held in the Knight Academy buiWing here next Sunday. Two sessions 'will be held, the first convening at 9.25 a.m., and the second at 2 p.m. A prayer meeting will also be Jield at li o'clock sharp. Supt. Bramwell, of the Stake, informed a Herald representative that he expected fully seventy-five per cent, of the Sunday school workers under his jurisdiction 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 interested, or 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 report wil be forwarded to them immediately after the convention is over, enumerating in detail just who were present, and 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 Academy will soon be deserted, the school year being concluded, and the students having thrown aside books and pencils, to pursue the more prosaic affairs of life. All are glad the 'work is done, especially since every student who wrote passed the examinations successfully. The faculty, too, are delighted with the year's work, and are now in a position to thoroughly enjoy their well-deserved holiday. Instructor Wetzel, who has made a host of friends during her sojourn here, severs her connection with the institution, as does also Instructor Wright, who has accomplished such a wonderful work in the domestic science and arts department. Their futures are a little uncertain as yet, although it is rumored that the latter will take up her residence in Nevada, where the Wooffs will reside. Another serious loss to the Academy will be that of Instructor Rasmiussen. Miss Rasmussen 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- the institution for at least one more term. It was feared nt one (ime that the board would lose Prof. Bramwell, as he had a splendid offer from one of the best colleges in Utah. He, however, refused, after consultation with the authorities of the church and those of the church school system, while in Salt Lake City several months ngo. In conversation with the Herald the president made the following slatament: ."Yes, 1 am going to slay. I want to see the Knight put on a good, solid and enduring foundation. We have had a most sue- C. P. R. DRILLING FOR WATER Good Wells Struck East of Stirling-News of Junction Town of the evening's program, and the refreshment committee is certainly to be commended for the excellence of the viands. It was midnight before good-byes >vere said, and the guests departed for their homes. The affair will long remain in., the memory of those who were so fortunate as to be in attendance, and it was a suitable conclusion to the season at the Academy. Rev. Hubert W. Toombs preached an iusplring sermon on Sunday evening in the Presbyterian church. His subject wasi "Honoring God." Mr. Toombs is a-convincing speaker and is greatly pleasing the congregation of whom he Is minister. In the absence of C. B, Strong for e-;l with results of the year's work The stafff has had n sternuous season but they have been amply repaid in seeing the. stud-ants go through their final tests with honors. We will have a nice class writing on the government examinations. I look for them all to got through." In announcing his faculty to the Herald man, President Bramwell stated that 11 was an exceptionally strong one, all, the members being eminently fitted for their special departments. Stirling, June 11,--Additional casing has arrived for the well which the C. P. R. have sunk on' the townsite twenty-five miles eaBt of Stirling. An abundant water supply has 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 found impossible. The finding of water at. this point will mean much to the sale of the townsite because the water problem throughout all the homestead country, east of Stirling and New Dayton has been a serious one, and it is quite probable that before putting the townsite on the market the C. P. R. will sink a well to be UBed for'town purposes. The well just completed will'"be for the use of engines only. W. T. Nichols returned on Saturday from a trip to' his old' home at Morning Sun, lowai He also visited Burlington, Sioux (�ity, Sloan, Iowa, and Omaha, Neb. '(^Lsked with regard to crop'conditlons,.,in tht-f States, Mr Nichols said that in his home state, Iowa, that they were haying very dry weather, and crops are being seriously, affected. Most of the corn in his part of the state has required re-seeding, and unless rain comes very soon the second frbp'will have the same fate as the first. Mr. Nichols told the Herald that during his three weeks' visit in this state that he carried with him this year's annual publicity number of the Lethbridge Daily Herald, and when American farmers were wanting to -discredit some of his statements regarding Alberta agriculture, Mr. Nichols produced his printed matter to prove his statements. Since returning- to Stirling he is more satisfied than ever and is asking a considerable advance in price for the real estate''which he owns between the station and the town. Rev. H. W. Toombs, Mr. Tait's successor of the Presbyterian Church at Stirling, preached for the first time on Sunday evening. . The service at New Dayton and Raymond have exchanged time, Mr. Toombs being at the Sunday school service at -Stirling shortly after two o'clock. Mr. Barber, oivil engineer for the C. P. R., arrived in Stirling on Monday night, and was driven by Nels Neison to Timothy's construction camp, from which point, in company with John Timothy, contractor for the Stirling-Weyburn line, and H. W. Tye, resident engineer, fie will make a tour of the lino for the purpose of inspecting the work, and will also take over the w>ll which the contractors have completed for the CP. R. Co., on the townsite twenty-five miles east of Stirling.

Price Will be In conversation with a. prominent Stirling citizen on Monday, the Her-(Since returning to Stirling he is move Herald's informant that he was glad to get back to "Sunny Southern Alberta," and that In all the country traversed there was none that would compare with this province. The statement of this man is significant. Driving through a country one sees and knows the country in a way that he could not do otherwise. This man's experience is certainly a boost for Alberta. The Magrath 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 station here, in which some of the Stirling people joined them. Stirling is given a prominent place in a rather extensive crop report appearing in yeBterday'B Herald. Nothing was said' of the abundant alfalfa cropj now almost ready to cut, in the vicinity of the town. Stirling's alfalfa never looked better, and with the possibility of, irrigation water, an abundant crop will be cut. Raymond Knight's bunch of 4,000 sheep are pasturing in the district adjacent to Stirling, and a portion of them are being taken back to their old grazing ground. Ed. Dudley was in from his camp on Monday, with an injured arm, resulting from his falling off the grading engine. Dr. Keillor attended the injured member. R. 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 Stirling-Weyburn line, arriv- �' ed from Edmonton on Saturday, accompanied by his little son. | There seems to be no clue as yetj as to who the culprits were who ef-: fected the post office robbery. No ' stone has been left unturned to se- i cure this information, but as yet all; efforts seem of no avail. j Gangs of men are at work along' the Cardsfon branch, and also along � the main line of the old A. R. and I., system, cleaning the ditches, parall-' eling the tracks, and putting the road j bed in a somewhat better shape. W. T. Nichols returned on Satur-; day from a trip to bis old home at; Morning Sun, Io-,va. He also visited i Burlington, Sioux City, Sloan, Iowa, and Omaha, Neb. Asked with regard to crop conditions in the States, Mr. Nichols said that in his home State, Iowa, they were having dry weather, and the crops are being seriously affected. Most of the corn in his part of the State has required re-seeding, and unless rain comes very soon, the second crop will have the same fate as the first.

Johnuon of Dvesden has purchased the Royal Hotel, Stratford. New Dayton. June 11.-A report comes from headquarters that the C. P. H. are to ninlie extensive alterations to their property at New Dayton. One,of the most important of these will be a large addition to the passenger platform at this point. The platform is now forty feet long and will be extended to 76 feet. This will obviate the difficulty of passengers having to get on some of the coaches without a platform on which to alight. Other important improvements are to be made 'in a short time, the one most desired being the erection of a depot on the side of the track next th-a town. ' On .Monday night's northbound train three citizens of New Dayton left for the north where they will make their homes. Alex Dunbar lias been manager of the Farmers' Lumber yard here for a year's time, and left, for Calgary where he will assume a similar position. Mr. and Mrs. G. C.

It 'was also decided that the service much. Mr. McCullough has secured t should be held at Raymond in the the position of manager of the dry goods department of 13.
