Saturday afternoon the Coleman football team with many of their lay al. supporters drove to Bellevue to play a, league match with that' team there. Report says the game was a good one, each team playing for all they ware worth. Superior skill and more thorough practice told hawever; and Coleman came off victorious with a score of 6 to 1. Owing to the conflict in the hours between the Baptist and Presbyterian services it has been decided to change the hours of the Baptist service from eleven in the morning to three in the afternoon. It is to be hoped many will avail themselves of the opportun ity thus afforded them by these ser- vices to attend and enjoy the treat that is in store for them. The Christian Endeavor Society of the Presbyterian Church will hold its meeting this week on Thursday night instead of Wednesday, its regular meeting night, on account of the so- cial to be held on that night. Mr. O'Dell, the student at Blairmore, occupied the pulpit in the Presbyterian Church on Sunday both morning and evening. The fine new bridge on Third St. over the Reservoir Creek was thrown open to the public (pedestrians only) on Sunday and from morning till late at night was well patronized, men, women and children enjoying the no- velty and the residents of the second bench using this easy means of travel to overcome the steep hill they so long have had to climb. Mrs. Beck who with her little son has been visiting Mrs. Charlie Dun- lop during the past few weeks, left Saturday night for her home in Ta- ber. Mrs. Comminsky with ber little boy Bennie, who has been visiting her sister Mrs. Edward Holmes, left Sat- urday on the local for her home in Sparwood, B. C. Coleman, June H. D. II. Little of the firm of Randal Little of Calgary, real estate dealers, is spending a few days in Coleman, selling lots in Calgary. They have something less than a thousand lots left out of three thousand they bought six months ago. There was no service in the English Church on Sunday the minister who was to have come finding himself un- able to get here. It is probable that Canon Webb of Calgary will be here next Sunday and possibly the Bishop the following Sunday. The parish needs a good live energetic man to overtake the work and it is the in- tention of the Bishop to visit the field that he may be able to know the kind of a man to send. Inspector Brown visited the schools here Tuesday and found things in a very favorable condition. He was only making a flying visit but called in all the rooms and not- ed the attendance, the improvements that have already hoen made and the need there is for othyr improvements. As the town grows, and it certainly1' is growing, the number of pupils reg- istered grows until the present accom modation is inadequate. Especially is this true of the primary room where there are seventy on the roll and seating capacity for forty-six. So great indeed has the congestion been that during the past few months half-day attendance has had to be ra- sorted to, part of the little ones at- tending in the morning and the rest in the afternoon. The Board is stu- dying the matter and it is hoped will soon arrive at a satisfactory solu- tion. Because of a misunderstamuBg am- ong those from whom most of the prizes were to be forthcoming there was a danger that the celebration planned for July 1st would have to be called off. It is a pleasure to state that this has been straightened out and Coleraan's annual event will be a -surety and we hope as great a success as it now promises to be. The baseball and football clubs will have the event in charge and as these are composed of men in close touch with the miners and all are genuine sports of the right kind, the may look for something snappy and up-to-date on that day. All kinds of games, racing, etc., will be pulled off and the prize list will rt od i one. All are invited. Mr. John Moore and his brother Albert Moore, taking with them their nephews Louis and John Brennan leave for an extended trip to Scot- land this week. The men may possi- bly return but the boys will remain in the old land where they were born and finish their education before re- turning to Canada. Mr. Albert Jones, inspector of coal for.the C.P.R. company, who some time since met with a severe accident .is still confined to his room. Unfor- tunately he stepped outside his house just as some boys were getting ready to shoot at a target with a twenty- two rifle. Carelessly they had the gun fit fijl] cock -xnd in their csccita- inent pulled the trigger, the bullet striking Mr. Jones in the calf of the left leg and passing completely through. He expects to be around in a few days. The box social in the Club rooms of the Presbyterian Church in the aus pices of the Ladies Aid was a decided success. It was held on Wednesday night when few other things would interfere with it and consequently was well attended. To attract the crowd the band play ed several selections on the street and when they had finished most of those present went inside to enjoy the good things prepared for them. There a splendid programme was rendered, consisting of pianola selections, reci- tations by Mr. Haymes, and Mr. Morrison, vocal solos by Mr. Ley- shorn, Mr. Chalmers, Mr. Hayson and Miss Marjory Fraser, violin solos by Mr. McMillan. Piano selections by Miss Gladys Hilling and a cornet and trombone duet by Messrs Robert and Alex. Easton. 'After the programme a dancing competition between the men was pulled off and a nail driving competition among the ladies. These were highly amusing to the onlookers The prize for the gentlemen's contest was won by Mr. French while Mrs. French won the ladies' prize. Light refreshments were- served during the evening. Perhaps the most appreciat ed feature of the evening was the vio- lin playing by Mr. McMillan, he be- ing encored repeatedly.

WYNACHT Bridgcwater. Cardston, June Raymond team visited Cardston for a return game which was played Friday after- noon. As this was a half holiday a big crowd tunied. out to witness it. The new grounds made necessary since the flood were located just west of the sta- tion on the Blood Heserve. The grass proved somewhat slippery at times, but otherwise the location was satis- factory. The game at first was somewhat one- sided and the Cardston boys did not come up to expectations. The visitors spun round the diamond 5 times while the home team had a solitary run. Thus stood the score at the be- "innin" of ths 6 whsn mond made 2 more. Ths outlook seemed hopeless but the tide turned and Cardston woke up or Rnymonl was rattled. The 7th and 8th innings went all the home team's way, at its end, 7-7 was the score. 9 innings made no change. The game went on until in the 12th inning with two mea on bases, E. Harris went to bat and brought them both home and w -uld have reached there himself had it not been for the mad rush ths crowd into the field. The official will therefore star.d 10 to 7 in i ard ston's favor. Harris proved himself all r'ebt. in the box for Cardston and deserv-i: honorable mention for his good, worfc. Basket Ball In the evening there was a ball game between Cardston anJ. i.i-av- itt. The visitors were the mtors. Score, 5-3. This morning another team faced up for Cardston to try with Raymond in basketball. There was a hard fought be- tween 8.30 and 10 a.m. The hour be- ing early the spectators weie n> t numerous. The honors however, went to Cardston.. Doubtless the result is largely due to the return of our from .College as Messrs. Willie WV-lf and Clyde Brown were big aids to Messrs. Devoe Woclf, Leo Cc-on.hs and Jno. Ellison. Sunday School Conferei-.i: Owing to the of. measles at Aetna, the broiday School cvn'f-r ence that- sho-ud have come ff Sunday has been postponed indefin- itely. At Kimball The removal of one span of the bridge has put the cheese factory at a great disadvantage. Its patrons are on one side of. the St. Mary's, or the majority of them and the factory on the other. However, efforts are being made to put in a boat and run a small ferry so that passengers and sundry milk shipments can be crossed. It is sincerely desired that repairs be made here as soon as possible by the Public Works department as the trip now has to be made via the Card- ston bridge near Harker and Allen's mill for all residents east of the St. Mary's. Personals Insp. W. J. Brown of Medicine Hat came in this week and paid us a brief visit. The country schools were not visit- ed and some teachers are sorrowing in consequence. The visit was made to Cardston School only. Mr. Brown is always welcome in Cardston as his visits here always prove of much benefit to the school, staff and the trustees. No other inspector ever proved more helpful. Mr. Win. A. Tolman narowly avert- ed a serious mishap in the Belly riv- er today. While attempting to cross where the ford had been in part washed out, he struck rather too low for his team to gain footing. The wagon and outfit veered downstream and only by some good use of the whip did he force his team out upon the bar and save himself and out- fit. delegates to the Coaventfou of West- ern Boards of Trade to be held at the Hat ISth to 21st at the last meeting of the Board. Messrs. Har- ris and Beach left yesterday for this purpose. BASEBALL The Leavitt te-am paid us a visit on Tuesday und had a friendly game with our The score will not represent the shows too many runs, but Curdstory' was an ea- sy victor. As Leavitt has beaten us twice at basket ball perhaps the toam will not feel bad at the loss of this game. again. DKY FARMING- LECTURE Sec. S. M. Vv'oolf of the .Fairs As- sociation was busy on Tuesday in all in readiness for the lec- ture by Prof. Campbell. It was sur- mised tnat at this particular season there would be few farmers who would feel the droughth sufficiently to attend the meeting. The chief ques- tion has been how to get rid of the surplus moisture. However there was a good attend- ance at the coming in from Mountain View, Leavitt, Wool- ford, etc.; to be present at this meet- ing. The old timers know that there are seasons in our weather cycle requir- ing just such information as Prof. Campbell can give relative to hus- banding the moisture for .the dry time. Mr. Henderson, provincial weed in- spector, accompanied Mr. Qampbell. Y.esterday they were given a drive throughout the district and Mr. Thos H. "Woolford, president of the local A. F. A., who finally landed them at Raley in time for the down train. PERSONALS Messrs. Jas. Parker, cattle manag- er for the Cochrane Ranch and Henry Downs were in from the round up yes terday. By advice to W. -Laurie tonight from Mr. Coiiybeare was learned that the trustee business was settled by Judge Scott's decision, against the respondent Mr. S. Williams. The re- lator was Mr. A. E. Austin. This decision will likely result in anothe'r election of a trustee upon the School Board. TRY WM. OLIVER (TOT?

The real estate firms of the town were also duly commissioned to take charge of the display route and at the ejdiibition grounds.

The Kangers -were successful at Macleod yesterday in the replayed game, and thus qualify to go to Cal- gary during the Fair, winning by 6 goals to 2. Macleod put up a great game but tine Lethbridge team, were back to bticii' um iuijii, aliu pi'uVed LliaL iasi Saturday was an off day and if they took too much for granted then the experience did them good. The home team won the toss and set the "Rangers" to face the winrl and Macleod with this advantage put up a hot attack, giving our boys a warm time, the ball being difficult to get away owing to the wind. Macleod scored the opening goal from a well placed corner, and this being soon followed by a second, put the local supporters in a good frame of mind and gave them visions ol Calgary. Lethbridge tried hard to get through but were unable to pierce the defence, although were successful in preventing Macleod increasing their score. Half time: 2-0. After the interval, Lethbridge had the wind behind them, but soon be- came very evident that Macleod would have a busy time to keep their lead. It was fully 20 minutes though, be- fore Lethbridge opened their score, through H. Smith, although the play was principally in Macleod's half, they were unable to find the net. Once the start was made, however, there was no holding our boys, and settling down to a short passing game further goals came very quickly.

The time is short, but we are go- ing to dig in right away. child but without success and it is now thought that she may have been kidnapped. Passengers on train No. 96 say that the chances of finding her are very small. The train was stopped near Pine, a station consisting of a box car, placed in one of the wildest spots along the C. P. R. The track is bordered with dense tamarac and spruce, scattered rocks, interspersed with lakes, deep swampy muskeg. and black and A few steps from the track would carry anyone out of sight and the rough character of the country makes a search almost im- possible. The train had-stopped at Pine, awaiting orders to pas the sink- hole near Gilbert, and the conductor had left his charges while he went t'o receive his orders before starting. Upon his return he found the sister of the younger child crying bitterly on the. seat because she said she was unable to find her sister. A search was at once instituted and every passen- ger and member of the train crew took active part in it. The train was de- layed six hours in a vain attempt to find some trace of the lost child and the whistle was blown at intervals in the hope that the little girl would hear it and come towards the sound. The searchers came back from the bush tired and unsuccessful and the train was compelled to resume its journey. A collection of 75 was taken up among the passengers.
