One vessel which on her' last trip had-only 300 first cabin passengers, came this week with more than SOO. The horse show and must be a regular part of the credit for this The horse show attracted many visit- ors irom the continent, while ruanv more delayed their coming uniil As- cot week which has been made par- ticulailj brilliant this jear by 'the King and Queen. ASCOT SUNDAY was Ascot Sunday which marts Ihc apogee of the season on the Thames summer Sunda) pre- sents a beautuul picture of color and animation on the favored reaches ,oi the rivrr, but jesterdaj could be seen at its hest at Eoultos lock, Cliveden reach. This vear there has been a great change made at Boulters rock, how- cur, destroying its old beauties The lock'has been enlarged to nearly twice its former sizs. The new. lock is 203 feet "li inches long and, 21 feet four inches wide, nith a minimum depth of seven ject A double of working on the familiar jack ladder plan has teen ided to carrv punts, dinghvs and such small vessels up and doun without the delay necessary in passing through'the locks. In'makiri? the improvements, the onlj loss stored is that of the cele- t tested old mill on Kaj Mill Island It had to be removed hut the old mill house still stands HENLEY. The river will be the scene of still another spectacle on July sixth, w heaj the Kiirg and Queen go up irom Windsor m their state barge for the Henley regatta.

Not only have the' King Queen undertaken to revive the pop- ularity of Henley, but the races ire ot added importance this year. Four Olympic crews, will row lor the grand .challenge.cup, and this will afford a good opportunity to judge their re- spective chances at Stockholm. The Leandei Four, England's main- stay at Stockholm, New College Ox- Argonauts ol Toronto and the Sydney Rowing .Club of .New .South Wales are. the crews to partici- pate. score of 3 to 1, and Macleod defeated Taber bv the same score A couple of big scores have been pulled off but at that they were gamea full of interest and pleasing'to -the fans. Qood crowds have been attending the games m each of the four towns and the interest taken in the teams showing runs high In Lethbridge the largest crowds that have over attended an amateur ball game here, have turned out on each occasion and the only complaint is that they don't play 'often enough.

ANOTHER HOT GAME IN THE Coleman Lost to Fernie in Soccer Tilt in Whicli -Referee Gets; Into a 'Peck of, Trouble BELLVUE LEADING Coleman, June" 23.

Quarrels were the rule of the game, while the referee culled down on himself as much op- jirobriurn as ever did a baschall um- pire, and though pop bottles not were. Both df Fernie's goals were by II. Adamson, one in the one in the second, who, bv the way, looked be offside when lie drove in tho last one, but the "ref." who took his position in the centre of the-ficld, and seldom abandoned it, could not be induced .to view it in that light. Holmes and Sndworth, of Coleman's fonvar'ds, strove: in vain to score on Adamson, who1, stopped for Ferme some tAceedinglv dangerous shots Holmes, struck the edge ot the goal', post, and bounding across the front of the-goal, struck the oth- er post and then lolled out. of dan- ger It Aras a close for '-Coleman, played his usual etfpctne game Near the end of the first half a lush vim' rose, which carried Fernie real estate "-to a height not experienced for some lime, and incidentally made play a haphazard matter A.
