A. of tho rfnrraers of the. immediate vicinity of the city. Mr.; Dunham^Js of the opinion that the farming interest of the city should ^ represented by a local and some marl is being made toward the organization of one. This local would naturally affiliate itself with the working of the board of trade and would be a medium of- discussing and handling the farmers Interests in connectin with that body. It is also more than likely that if such a farmers organization were in existence that the question of organizing a unit of the Grain Growers Association and possibly the purchasing of this efcvator so as to connect the farmers in an effective way witli the United Grain Growers would he feasible and practicable, but the fact that the farmers in this locality are not organized renders even the discussion of such' a proposition very difficult. The fact that the farmers are organized at Crystal Lake. Wilson Siding and West Lethbridge has heretofore made an organization at Lethbridge somewhat le.--s urgent, but an'organization at the City of Lethbridge would have means of dealing is'ith problems such as the above and many other problems, that would indirectly effect the farmers of the outlaying district, in such a way that these smaller organizations, representing; only separate localities, do not have. In the drive that i.s being instituted by the U. F. A.. ;Mr. Dunham hopes lliat it i*iU result in an organization in the city also. OF An inquest was held yealevday at two o'clock by Coroner Ilumpbrlcs and a Jury composed ot A. G. Bmvllm, foro-man. W. H. Kostcr, W. ,1. Nelson. W. N. Kliig.

Leech antl Chief Hardy were the principal witnesses, and the following vordlct was returned: "We find from the evidence given nt this court of inquiry that JIlss Delia Allan camo to her death from shock caused by bum.? received from the explosion ot gasoline used in cleaning garments, (cause oi igititlon of same unknown). iiWe, the jury would strongly r^com-ment that pt>mo law be ennctotf rogu-f-iating the sale of gasoline for eloantng aild household purposes requiring that priKtcd inatructlons bo".^iven as ^o tho Ignition while in use in open vessels." lers' Commission tor Saskatchewan enlisted as a private soldier while hp was a principal of Westminster schoAl at Lethbridge. He went to France and fought in the.front line trerfchea as a private for eight months with the 8th Battalion and after the Vimy Hidgo offensive was retunied to Canada for duty with the Invalided Soldiers' Commission, then known as the Jlilltary Jlospitals Commission and under Military control.

Tho British crews got out ot Hel-singfors only twelve hours ahead of the Germans entrance to the town. The men assured the correspondent that they had effected tlip destruction of their underwater craft* before leaving. The submarines which had entered tho Biiltic at early periods in tho w'nr and had been in constant service ainco wore frozen solidly in the ice In Hel-singfors, which made thcir,.escapB, ti^-possible. It was suggested that the ice lie dug out around them and that they should then make an attempt to dive nnderi\enth tho ice and reach clear water. After considering the plan carefully, however, tho British commanders decided that it was impracticable. For the purpose ot destroying the submarinea large quantities ot ex; plosives were placed inside them and' exploded by means ot fuses. The series of explosions which fol- \owad shook the entire city ot Uelsing-(ora and tHe craDh of the detonations Avns heard for miles around, At tho same lime the largo ctocU ot torpodooa and sparo parts on hand wore also blown up. After an inspention had shown that tho work liad been ettoc-tivoly tiono tho BrlClah crows left the city and retired northward ncrdss Finland into Russia, reporting tor duty a fortnight later at a aubraarlno bas� in England.  Tho property value of tho craft rtnd tho material dcatroyod reached � total ot about �500,000. i SHAPE The Board of Directors of the Y. M. r, A. at its monthly meeting last evening.

SUBJECT TO ACT In view of the recent order tor the registration ot men 19 years ot age, the. .�\merican Consular .^gent wishes to state that at the present time American citizens are not subject to the Military Servd-e Act of Canada and should not register thereunder unless they wish to volunteer for service witU, the Canadian. forces. The Consulate has made many requests for intervention on behalf of Americans who, through erroneous advice, registered oc claimed exemption under the Military Service Act last autumn: and it Is to 9bvlate as far as possible a repetition of lbl� that the present annouticement Is made. Each man should, of course, be sure ot l^s citizenship; and if any uncertainty exists, the advice of the Consulate should be sought. The proper time to do this Is now, not after registering and being drafted. In this conpectlon It Is -well to state, that when a father (or mother, if a widow) has become naturalized as a British subject in Canada, every child of such father or mother who, while a minor, became resident with such father or mother, in Canada, is a British subject in Canada if the parents' naturalization occurred idur-ing the child's minority. Tills Is not always true, however, of iperaons whose parents were naturalized under the .Sttturallzatlon Act ot 1914. Americiin cttizena of Canadian draft age are urged to,obtain legal proof ot their American, citizenahlp. It they have not already, done so, as upon them will re^t the burden ot proving that they, ,ar� noC British subjects liable to 4raft under, the Military Service Act.
