There were about six auto loads from Warner, and as many if not more than that from Sweet Grass, besides countless uugaies and rids from the surrounding country.

A feature of tho dance was the presence ol F. S. Lelilngwcll, M. r P and W. S. Ball, tho Conserva- tive candidate for the federal seat.

He alone in a single- seated aeroplane in pursuit of a Ger- man machine. While Irving to reload his machine gun he lost control of the steering gear and the aeroplane turned upside down. The belt around his waist happened to be loose and the jerk of the turn almost threw him out of the machine, but he saved imself by clutching the rear centre strut, the belt slipping down around his legs. While he hung head down- wards, making desperate efiorts to disengage his legs, the aeroplane fell a height ot leet to about spinning round and round like a fall- ing leaf.
