Sunny Alberta has i coino to ilG own. Mr. Mclntyrc oi Iron Springs, has just moveil to town and liuilt a fine new Blacksmith shop on Main street. The town now has two blacksmith shops, two hardware stores, two ernl stores, two restaurants, two liv- ery barns and two grain elevators. A third one, belonging to the farm- ers, hurucil down last fall, hut n. is expected that it will be rebuilt soon. We also have a harness shop, a bar- ber shop and pool room, two butcher a lumber ynnl and one iiiiple- jmrot building in charge oi H. L-l- rieii. Tlie farmers' union have a -large hall which is used for all important gatherings during the week and for church services en. Sunday, and last hut not least, we have a baseball j learn who think1 they cau do all 'other teams to a finish. Anywaj.i ithey can whip Lomond, and did it j easily. i Mr. has rented the Green- man building on Main street and will! move his family in at once. We would like tc have a good doc- tor and a dentist locate here. We al- so need a (lour mill1. We raise in this district some of the finest No. I hard wheat in Alberta, as the ( sel- dom catches it, for it ripens here cariy. i The Lr. F.

Another Complete New Stock of Ladies' Blouses and %1M Charges Untrue That German Internes are Very Lavishly Treatedj Charges published hi the '-'algaiy newspapers last evening to the eltecl that German internes ir. the l.oth- hridicc detention camp were being ev- tendcd all niaiinct ,il privileges at the r-mci'sc oi the Canadian government, and out ot all accord with what treatment of German prisoners should be, are. substantially without founda- "TI'IC charges W internes are allowed to drink ir, local bars, play HoH and enjoy other privileges, under escort oi course. It is quite true that ono or two German officers interned here enjoy pritileps oi nnicers mess. One ot them even plays goli uiidci escort. But these officers pay for Uicse privileges. They pay for then escorts when out oi the camp, 'they pav lor their meals at the same as they would pay it holding similar rank in the British army. That -is the Canadian regulation re- garding internes, and the officers are merely fulfilling their duties hcie when 'allowing the Herman officers such privileges. So far as the ordm- ,nrv German internes arc concerned, t'fiev are. allowed no privileges out- side of the ordinary benefits allowed all German internes in Canada. Whether the internes should be a.- I lowed privileges in .view oi the treatment being accorded British in- ternes in Germany, is oi course an- other -matter. The general opinion in the citv is that the internes here are bci'iiE pretty well fed and pretty well; treated generally, as compared British prisoners in Germany accord-. ing to all reports: The internes hale j good meals without a doubt, while this might be objected to so far as the internes themselves are concerned, local people argue that this has meant a substantial cir- i 'dilation of money amongst the local, merchants and has really redounded to the benefit of the community at large. Col. Stewart Interviewed I Col. Stewart, interviewed by Herald this morning, in regard to tie _ claims made by the Calgary Herald that local officers were with interned officers at the local re- tuition camp said "There is abso- hitclv ao truth in this statement, nor j grounds for truth. For myself the ex-, tent oi mv association with these i 'men is to'say 'Good day' when meet them. I am sure that the othel members of my stall do not lorget themselves any more than I do in this regard." There is considerable indication among the officers who iecl that they have been insulted by the Calgary 'paper's statement.
