Our genial station agent and his wife. Mr. and Mrs. McNeil. left this week for an extended vacation in Hie east. We wish them a safe journey �nd a very pleasant time. Last Friday evening there was great excitement in tho village when Noble-ford and Rocky Coulee came together in a baseball match. It Is tho first time tb(g season that these teams have met. and as the Coulee had an unbeaten record the local team were out to put n nice little hole in It.

All the townspeople were out and cam from Diamond City, Koho and White Lake also brought In a crowd of fans to help with ihe shouting. The many friends here of Mr. and Mrs. Marsh have heard with regijet the news of tho serious illness of Mrs. Marsh. It is the hope of all that she may soon rocover and be out again. During the wind storm on Monday night the chicken shed belonging to Mr. Swailes was blown over and they had to lake all the stock into their homo. At a mooting of the board ot trade, which was held on Monday the question of organizing Nobloford into a village was thoroughly discussed. Mr. Kilkpatrick, the president, had got a lot of Information from the government regarding ways and means and also the advantages that would como to the place if it was incorporated. Tho whole mutter was gono Into and eventuully It was decided that, the nucossary steps should bo taken,'and tho following were appointed a committee to get up the petition and niako all arrangements, Messrs.

I A number of local automobilists I have complained of the recent prnc- j lice of some children in Coalluir.-:i I and Wiguii. who run out in front of Hie cars, or try to jump onto them while they arc in motion. Under such conditions accidents are sure to happen, no matter how provincial policeman here now. Wo do not, mean to suggesi 'that the. village Is particularly bad. but the present1!' of a policeman would serve to prevent a lot of the present open law-broaking. A shipment of nearly :!0rt articles was sent forward today from tho local Red Cross Society. There is still room for more workers among ihe ladles of the village. lent, the driver. It is hoped that parents will warn their children of-'lhe danger of this foolish play. Labor conditions arc as quiet as ever and the familiar sound of the tipple is no more heard. The men are doing nothing and some are moving out until work will be started again. A number of the men seem to have but little faith in the Minister ' of Labor but hope that the govern-j ment will do something to solve the , problem.

' CONYBEARE BLOCK , LETHBRIDGE, ALTA, WE feel that too little publicity has been given MALTUM""**16 ncw malt beverage-and we want to tell the public something about it. Realizing that the tendency of the times was steadily towards the use of lighter beverages, we have for several years been working on and -perfecting a fermented malt beverage containing all the appetizing, nourishing and refreshing properties of ordinary ale, beer and Stout-but jpractically eliminating the alcohol. In MALTUM this has been accomplished, and a scientifically brewed, well-matured really high-class beer is added to the list of temperance drinks-a distinct boon to those who, either from inability to drink the heavier beers or by reason of conscientious scruples, were opposed to their use, may now find in MALTUISA the ideal malt beverage they have sought. (Registzhcd) is Not a Cheap Substitute for Beer Is manufactured and bottled in absolute cleanliness. 7\ii contains as much malt, hops and food properties as ordinary beer. Si will stand any analysis-each brew is analyzed, not in our own laboratory, but by independent analytical chemists. We invite any test or inspection. MA13HSI is a thoroughly wholesome and strengthening beverage. I, owing to the intricate process of manufacture, costs more to produce than ordinary ale or beer. MALTUM WILL BENEFIT MANY-IT CAN HARM NONE WHAT we haye said about MALTUM applies equally to MALTUM STOUT, except that the latter, being brewed from caramelized malt, is somewhat heavier and therefore more blood making. MALTUM and MALTUM STOUT fully comply with all government regulations and may be freely y used or sold by anyone, anywhere. MALTUM is registered at Ottawa and is manufactured only by E. L.
