Macleod, March 7.-The funeral ot John Ryan, sr., was the largest seen in Macleod. He has been confined to his house tor some months, and to i/Ws bed for the past month, and gradually slipped away "Daddy" Ryan, as he was called by all, old and Voung, was a favorite with all, and his presents of flowers, fruits and vegetables to all his friends will never be forgotten. He was a gardener of noto, hence his gifl-s. He was'in--terested in the historical Macl^d, and has many relics which will in the future tell future generations of what happened during the early "eighties" in and around Macleod. He took great interest in the agricultural fairs and was a specialist on poultry He also held a position with the town, of Macleod for many years, and the past ten years has been an employee -of the provincial government. Father Lacombe, who is his senior by some years, travelled all the way to Macleod to pay his last tribute and pronounce his brief eulogy, which was, "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord." Friends from all parts of the West were in attendance at the funeral. Mr. Ryan, was 86 years of age.

DESTROY EPIDEMICS IN FIFIY YEARS PROF. LEWIS SAYS SCIENCE WILL SOON MAKE EPIDEMICS IMPOSSIBLE If booeters and bullder.i were synonymous, Lethbrldge would be well bullded. The Lethbrldge builders are boosters of the first water. It Is logical, . therefore,, to presume that Lethbrldge Isjbullded well. Anyone who doubted that the builders of .this city were not the best boosters to l>e found anywhere should have attended the second annual banquet given by that organization in the ;L'ethbrldge Hotel dining room last night, and his doubts v.'ouId have been i'eadlly dispelled. One thing he would have been impressed with was the 'general feeling of optimism which per vaded the evening. The West is a great "next year" country. That is a joke of th^ outsider. But, according to the builders, Lethbrldge is to prove the exception to the rule, and make this year once more a record breaker. Hard times are not to be allowed to enter into thg argument. � Two years ago the hullders of Let)  bridge organized themselves into the Lethbrldge Builders Exchange for their mutual benefit, and not the least tor the benefit of the city as a whole. Last night they culminated, around the festive board, the second year of their activity, and the banquet was sufficient to prove fiiat their interest in their work dofia not lag with time. Builders were there, practically all of them. They were ably supported by the material supply men, one of whom occupied the seat of honor at the head of the board. Besides there were representatives of the city in the persons of Aid. Williamson, acting mayor; City Solicitor Ball and City Building Inspector Meech. The archl-nis nil- t^c's, able lieutenants o� the builders, favorable. He ^^""e there, as were also members of the various professions and the press. It was a -representative gathering of the men who are bent on building in Lethbrldge a city 'which shall equal the best in the Canadian West. And all were proud to be there. J. Jackson officiated most capably in the position of toast master, and after the good things provided iby Mine 'Host Miebach, and his able lieu tenants in Steward Gardiner and the ladles, had been done probably more than ample justice to," a lengthy program of toasts, songs and speeches occupied the evening and part of the �morning. Nothing was lacking in any direction. -V-i- ' . "The King" having been duly toasted, Toastmaster Jackson celled on President Sm'ith of the Exchange, who replied in a neat address, welcoming the builders to their second banquet, Edmonton, Alta., March 6.-Professor Francis ..T.

However, he would not isted during the tertiary period, or find  any fault the city could claim justly some credit for carrying the city through the past two years. They had been glad to do so, and were always glad to aid legitimate development. He hoped that after the cessation of the Balkan trouble and other European disturbances, the money market would assume the noi;mal once more, and that with a few more good crops, the ere-;. It of the West would be again Impeachable. C. SadowBkl, Lethbridge's rising young violinist, contributed a well rendered solo at this stage ot the game, and the banquet proceeded apace. The toast to the Lethbrldge Builders Exchange was proposed by Jas. Glenlster, vice president, who told of the "live wires" they had met In Edmonton and Calgary at the recent convention, and urged that the local members turn out at all meetings so that matters might be threshed out In the proper place by the right men. He asked that they give the president their hearty support. The architects and the supply men were behind t.he exchange and would do all in their power to help It along as they had always done In the past. The toast was responded to by C. D. Leader in a neat speech in which he predicted bright things for the future of Lethbrldge. "The Architects" are generally supposed to be the bane of the lives of the builders, but the remarks passed last night when the toast to the designers was proposed would lead one to believe differently. W. L. McKen-zie in proposing the health of the architects of the city said that the builders were supposed to build what the architects created out of nothing. However, he had always found them live wires when it came to getting business, and only hoped they would be a little more generous with their certificates of work done la future. In response H. M. Whlddlngton did not forget the part played in all building by the workmen, and be spoke for them the best treatment in the power of the builders to give. The four forces In the building world are the owners who supply the cash, the building contractors, the architects and the workmen. Mr. Whld dington 'was reminded after his i-eply that he had forgotten all about the supply men. A song by B^A. Cunningham and a dialect recitation, by Mr. Fletcher, secretary'of tie exchange, were here Interspersed, after which the "Ladles" came In for their fair share of appreciation for their work In home building. The'toast ;Was proposed by Fred Hick and responded to by Mr. Cunningham in his usual happy fashion. In which he did full justice to a worthy subject. The City of Lethbrldge, close to the last, but not lea^t, was proposed by H, J. Gfoode, who had just returned from a trip to older lands, and was glad to find himself in a place where he was known and had (helped to build. Amoijg the things, he said, the builders owe to the city are the building bylaw, the plumbing bylaw and the electrical bylaw. That should h61d them for a while. Acting Mayor Williamson responded. He wasi sorry the mayor was not present to respond to such an Important toast at such a fine gathering, but hoped that the builders as well as other civic organizations would -x-_'j i,_v,i,j fi,o.'nitv PjiiiTiMi this In 1662 Dr.Stvtbbswroteabook aboutduJC* plate called "Thejndian Nectar."j Here are some passages from his treatiseJy "-the Indians (of the tropics) by the help of cacao nuts (cocoa beans) alone do subsist all day* notwithstanding their great labor, and heat."^ ^ "\ dare avow that one ounce of Cacao-paste (beaten cocoa beans) well digested, will yield more fat than a pound of fat beef or mutton."

EHmonton, Alta., March 6.-Two ambitious projects were outlined here today, when Hon. John R; Boyle, mlr� ister of education, and Hon.
