A NEW LETHBRIDGE CITIZEN The East Lambton Tribune, pub- lished at Thedford, Out., has the following in reference to a gentle- i man who has recently token a posi- tion with JR. A. Wright, jeweller "A meeting of the band committee was held on Wednesday evening of last week for the purpose of taking over the accounts of L. P. Smith, the retiring secretary-treasurer, and electing a successor. The books were found to be in first class shape and handed over to A. B. Powell, who was elected to the office. The mem- bers of the band were present and took advantage of the opportunity to work in a surprise on Mr. Smith. Waiter Rogers read an address which spoke in glowing terms of -Mr. Smith's efforts in connection with the wb-iie r." Tudor presented him with a handsome fitted club-baa" on behalf of the band and the com- mittee. 3Ir. Smith though so'me- j what affected by thc surprise, made j a fitting reply. i "After adjournment the business men of the town tendered Mr. Smith a farewell supper at the Holwell Father House. Dr. Grant acted as toast- master and introduced the usual list of toasts. Many of the speakers ex- pressed their regret for his depart- ure and paid big tribute to his in- tegrity as a business man and his sterling worth as a citizen. Mr. irurn rendered a very fine solo, .which was much appreciated.

I was accompanied by Donald Smith, now Lard Strathc'.na, We found Kiel alone, and there and then beseached him not to execute Scott and not to dishonor, by a stain that would never be wiped out the provisional government.

For- tunately, however, no such drastic measures were considered necessary, by the medical health officer, Dr. Law. On Friday it was discovered that the young son of Senator Coineau of Digby county, JN. S., was suffer- ing with an incipient case of small- pox. The boy had taken breakfast that morning his father in the Parliamentary restaurant, and had been for a part of the day in the lat- ter's room on the Senate side" of the house.
