Buchanan John Torrance Managing Director Business Manager A GOOD TIME COMING Tlie finding of crude oil lu the Monarch well is a matter of importance not only to the shareholders In the particular concern, and to those personally interested in oil stock companies, but to the province at large. It betokens the fact that here in Alberta ihere exists the genuine commercial article which, for all ^e know may extend throughout its entire portion. The news comes at an opportune time when -R-ith tlie � prevailing dry veather we have become a little ap^ prehensive as to the future of the grain crop. It solidifies oiir faith that if not in one thing, then in another, the hand of time points to the realiza, tion of that rosy anticipation begotten of the spirit of optimism which has become part of our creed. From . present indications there is Dot much-room for doubt that'when the ground has been thoroug-hly tested the province will be found In possession of a commercial asset of world-wide importance. Meanwhile it should be a matter of governmental care that oil share pushers should not work harm to the reputation of the province, as has ibeen done in previous years by unscrupulous "real estate agents." With the encouragement given to mixed farming by organizations of the kind recently .formed in this city for lieiping the farmer in the 'purchase of stock, much good will result. Na- ture's teaching that scratching the soil for wheat crops to the neglect of other methods of farming 1* a mistake will, likewise, bear. its. fruits. ^. With the new methods cf agriculture takeai up, and with tile prospects of the possibilities of crude oil being 'found established,, we can cheerfully looS-forwapd^tp the good-t4meB,aJiead.4 Irish Nationalists are appealing to .Vniorica for funds for volunteers.

AITKKN, Manager. Twenty thousand signatures ha\-e been attahich It had ;,been given .ji trial. Among the other things charged up on the commissioners' debit side, was one contained in the statement that Commissioner Raid had promised at a former meeting, that the cars on the Blue line would always be run with two men, and that the one-man car system would not aflect North Lethbridge. This promise, he claimed, had been violated. Atr. Nimmons was in favor of the recall, and favor of the return to the aldermanic form of government, but not in favor ol recalling the commissioners at the present time. "The city is in a bad position financially," he said, "and Mayor ITardie, as we all know, is a Heaven-bom financier, and is not going to burden us with, any more debts. But the commission form of government is a farce and a fraud ; it takes away the interest of our "young men in public affairs, and it will be a failure." Mr. Nimmons also charged that Mr. Reid had refused to allow the streamers to be placed on the sides of the street cars, and tliat Mayor Hardie had arranged to allow the same, thereby infending to show that Mr. Reid did not know his business. ANY MINER COULD DO BETTER Another ratepayer arose to remark that men could be found down in any of the mines near the city, who co The only mention made of Cornmis-nored tlicir \vitf.fc.

Shortly after 3 o'clock, Cossoboom, one of the most experienced and most renowned divers on this continent, pjuhged over the side. Crawled Along the Plates Cossoboom landed on the great steel-Bheathed side of the ship, and crawling up to the rail, he climbed over and hung for a moment, and thei� he dropped. He had seen the �\viiite 'wall of the cabins just a short distance beneath hie feet, and on this slippery surface his feet landed. He was fairly well aft, and the long wall \A dim- grey under the water, seemed hto stretch interminably to the fore-Jiart of the ship. Carefully watching the lines and tubing which trailed up from his helmet, he crawled along. Suddenly, just above his head he saw something bumping against' the rail of the ship, the rail that should be perpendicular, but now. was horf-' zohtal. He stood up and knew It in a moment tor a body. A woman's hair streamed out from the head into the still water, -.^l"; ,. .-. He managed to.climb, up over the rail, and pul'ied the body around after him.' And as' he bent over- he saw,' just a little farther on, another. Marking well its position, he gave the signal, and In another moment was on his way to the top, the gruesome weight held tightly in his arms. Willing hands reached down and took the body from him as he reached the surface. He climbed up after it, and lay on the deck, exhausted. The undertaker, who was on board, at once prepared to embalm the body. The doctor whom the expedition carries, had given Cossoboom restoratives, and in about twenty minutes he was ready for another descent. His helmet was screwed on, and the va'lves and tubes were tested. Then over the side he went again. In a few minutes he 'was crawMixg along the cabin side again. 'He reached the body, which was in some way resting quietly in the corner formed by the deck and the cabin wall. Liook-ing around him, he saw that it would not be BO very difficult to crawl along farther, and by crawling up on the ship's side, make fast the mooring chain to the propeller. And so, leaving the body tor the moment, he scrambled along toward the stern. Soon he was down by the shaft, and a few moments of expert working made the chain fast. Then he carefully went back tor the body. .The body that he sought was just below him. He dropped and grasped it. The short hair told him that it was a man that he had found. The trousers confirmed this, and, without waiting to look at the white, still face, with a livid mark across the cheek, he started on his upward journey. Diver W�a Exhausted When they pulled his lielmet off, ho gasped: "I fastened a chain to the propeller." He could say no more. Ex-iiaustion overcame him, but he heard his chief, Weatherspoon, call out: "Good work, old man." Truly the businesB of diving Is strenuous. The man was wearing his shirt, his trousers, and heavy grey woollen socks. It may be that his delay to put on even these few clothes cost him his life. It is more probable that he was pulled down by the vessel when she sank, and in some manner was held to the deck. In his pocket were found several receipts with the name Cresswell on them. Evidently they were made out in Lethbridge, Alta. His body also was given over to the undertaker. All valuables and money, about five dollars, found on the man, were placed in seperate envelopes, and sealed. Captain Kjerland took charge- of these. The sun was dipping beyond the western horizon when the two ships returned to their berths at Rimouski wharf. Tenderly the bodies, on rough Stretchers, made by the Bhfp'a carpenter, were lifted to the wharf, and were deposited in the shed, where so many have lain these last two weeks.

It seeks to be interested, instructed and informed as much in the season of midsummer heat as in the season of midwinter cold.  The mind^ofman docs not change from month lo month as does the season; nor does it go io sleep for months at -a time as does ihe hear. In summer the mind is less jjre-occupicd with cares than in the more strenuous months of social and business demands.
