Raiman was driving his horses- and cows to water, the horse he was riding threw ,him off and kicked him in the hack. He was tonnd by his wife in the field unconscious and with the aid of her neighbor, Mrs. Zootaman, she brought him to the house where he was cared for, and is now recovering from the shock. He is able to sit up, and expects to be out in a few days. �- Hail insurance is the popular cry these days. Almost every one who has grain has hail insurance. Mrs. A. D.

FREIGHTER T ' 'An Atlantic Port, June 23.-A fight tetween an American freighter and a German submarine which took place June 6, one day out from Genoa, Italy, and resulted in the navy gunners on the American vessel scoring at least tine hit, waB reported today hy the cap-i iain of the steamer.

The second shot, .the "captain said, struck the periscope, ; throwing it high in the air and the last �hot fired hit the water on the exact - spot where "the U-boat disappeared. ;The American vessel suffered no dam- age. > This is the second .encounter reported within two-days in which an American ship successfully defended her- � gelf against submarine attack. (From Our Own Correspondent* Foremost, Alta., June 22. "Come to Foremost to keo**rcool!" seems to be the motto of the near-to-town farmers these warm days and local conditions go a long way toward Justifying the effectiveness of such an action. On every hand are evidences of honest endeavors to keep cool and attractive retreats in readiness for the use of the hot and dusty traveller. Store doors are open to admit the fresh breezes, and store blinds are all partly drawn to keep out the hot rays of the sun. Music is freely sup-piled on every hand and the restaurants and the ice cream servers arc doing a first class trade. The splendid spell of summery weather recently enjoyed hB3 enabled the farmers to do considerable roading, for the trails and roadways are.dry and safe for travel. The recent high winds have made hauling pleasant because of the absence of mosquitoes and many country folk have brought in their gold-producing grain. This excessive trade has reacted agreeably on the livery barn trade and both barns have had about all the patronage they can handle. It has also had its effect on elevator activity and the rattle of ingoing and outgoing gram is almost continuous in the elevator neighborhood. The merchants of the town, too, have experienced a large increase in trade for the farmer seldom comes to town without orders from the "head of the house" in reference to groceries, etc. Indeed, if present road lmprove-ments^are carried on to a completion to the north of town we will have a splendid system of roadways hereabouts. Work has been progressing now for over a week and the changes already brought about promise greatly for future comfort in teaming. Work is also being carried on down south in the vicinity of Klpp coulee, so we shall very soon be able to boast regarding our unexcelled roadways north and south of town. This road improvement is a very timely thing in this neighborhood for more reasons than one. . In the main, it is timely because of the great move recently made by land owners hereabouts to fence in their fields. This movement has cut �>fl._a lot of short cut trails and many farmers will have to travel an extra mile or two to reach town. While we regret the extra mileage we are glad that fencing Is being strung because it means progressive and extensive farming. There are quite a few large steam ploughing outfits at work in the country adjacent to town and gasoline rigs, both large and small, are also busily engaged in getting the land ready for an extensive crop next year. ^ More breaking is being done around here this year than at any time up to the present. Ploughing conditions vary greatly in different localities and, whilst very little breaking was done for the last few days, before Tuesday's storm to the north of town, very-few persons have found it necessary to "rest up" in the south country. Stone digging has been the nightmare of many farming folk of late, and the dryness of the soil in places made this a heavy task. There will be a great amount of stone taken from the ground as the plows are replaced by the binders as a mode of farm exercise around here because rock is fairly plentiful on some sections marked for cultivation. ' The crop prospects throughout the' countryside aro very encouraging on the whole. Summerfallow wheat is developing splendidly in a good, even, healthy growth and well disced fall ploughing is promising satisfactory returns. Stubbled land is not showing up very well but even at that It is more productive J�an the spring ploughing, for moisture has not been over abundant of late. Taking everything into consideration crop rvos-pects are encouraging, more espe-claly since the recent rains. Flax and oats, though of late sowing in many cases are coming along splendidly and give evidence to at least, a satisfactory amount of seed germinating warmth and moisture still in the gitund. One pleasing aspect of country life and interest that we have noticed is the increasing popularity of tree cultivation. Already several homes close In to town have very creditable hedges around about garden plots or small lawns. It gives a pleasant and homelike touch to the otherwise monotonous and tiring prairie scenery. It is the artist in humanity that craves for beauty and comfort around the home and indicative of neighborhood interest to see fresh groves of trees planted and cared for. We would make the same comment on the move which at least one or two town homes have sot on foot for the cultivation of garden *plots of flowers and climbing vines. Nothing sets a town house off so neatly and effectively as a well planned flower garden and the beauty of tha. flowers, themselves, and the sweetness of their perfume, are rewards enough in them selves. Surely-this is a movement worthy of town Interest. Building operations are still continuing in town. Several very roomy and artistic homes have just been completed and numerous ones of smaller dimensions and less pretentious style are under course of construction. Several new plots are already staked out ready for the excavation of basements and^ the erection of buildings, but foremost among the buildings propoaed stands the new garage of imposing dimensions, which It to grace the west side of our Main street at the southern oxtremlty of the town. Several ijuliaings have boon undergoing alterations in the interest of increased efficiency and accommodation auqng whlph rfass hag baev the pool hall fif JSTelB OMIlorn, in whiofi a bowling alley has been installed. Bowline f* now one.of the popular sports of too town'and the alleys are continually In UBe. The rooming house of J. B. Carrlng-ton,- which has done yoeman service in the accommodation of transients, Is now closed, pending extensive alterations tti the interest of increased store accommodation. The entire downstair section of the building Is now to bo remodelled Into a large and np-to-dato store and n larger and moro miscellaneous stock will be carried In future because of the steadily increasing trade. The town people are commencing to renltzo now that July 2 IS not vory far away and grent efforts aro being made to have everything In excellent ship shape style. The popular opinion Is that the day is bound to be a success so far as patronage is concerned, and every effort is being put forward to ensure that the town will not "fall down" In Its work. The race tra.'k Is being prepared and carefully worked up Into perfect shape, programmes are being prepared to serve the double purpose of advertising and avoiding disorder and everywhere flaring posters, large and small, aro being stuck up, whilst the merchants of town have drawn up a subscription list to ensure the successful financing of the event. No pains are being spared to make it "the dny." and everyone is assured of a pleasant and enjoyable time. Big, special and novel features are promised, and a treat is in store for all. Rev. E. Davidge, the local minister under the supervision: of the Methodist Missionary society, leaves this week for his new field of service southeast of Calgary and is being replaced by Rev. E. Wfnfleld, who comes to us with good recommendations and considerable experience. We trust that he may be well received and that sympathetic support will be given. We welcome hfm and his wife and family into our town life and trust that they ADOPT Pfl&HjBmON * OPT PjROKlB Washington, Juno 23.-Repre- sentattve Mtirkley's amendment to the food control bill which  would prohibit the use, of food, food materials or malts for the * may find congenial companionship in our midst. Monday evening, Juno IS, was celebrated in the Burlington school district by a gathering of the neighbors at the new home of Mrs. Chas. Walkor for the purpose of giving their pastor an old fashioned send-off. The evening was beautiful and clear and a largo crowd assembled. A general spirit of good fellowship prevailed, and after n considerable programme of music, impromptu numbers were rendered by different members of the party. During tho evening, h. Sheets, on behalf of the assembled friends, presented the outgoing pastor with a purse of money after which refreshments were served and good old fashioned choruses were sung. The evening was brought to a close In the wee sma' hours with the singing of "Blest Be the Tie That Binds," "Auld Lang Sync" and "God Save the King." The refreshments were generously contributed by the ladles and were heartily enjoyed by all. Monday evening was also notable, on account of the big Red Cross concert and dance which was held in the Empire theatre in town. " Tho ladles went to considerable trouble In preparation for tho event and this ac- counted for Its splendid success. The programme was.of exceptional merit and the audience was appreciative and attentive. R. amis ably acted as .Chairman tor the occasion nnd Interspersed the programme with his ready wit. Not only was the concert a flnanclnl success but It wns also n "membership" success, no less tlinn sixty now members being enrolled In the course of the ovoning. After the programme had been completed the majority of tho crowd remained for the dance. Ober's slx-plece orchestra supplied the music with Miss V Maw-hlnney ns plnnlst ami Miss O. Mc-Rae as violin lend. The mewltnont continued Into the woo small hottre of' Tuesday but everyone enjoyod the exorcise and music.

Being a member of long standing and practical experience in the Pythian sisters, the honor of dedicating nnd opening tho new. temple, Maple Leaf No. 2, was extended to her, nnd proving her ability In team work, an honorary office in the new temple was given her, that of honorary past chief.
