Prom the time the work of succor- ing the Belgians began, Mr. Hill took a leading-part In the movement. It [probably will never be known how much money he sent to King Albert, an old personal-friend, and how much he induced others to send. His place-as-an international figure never was more prominently display- ed, than when-the. representatives of the allies came .to .New.York in quest of a huge loan..One.of the first men to be sent .for .by ,J. P. Morgan was .Tames J. Hill, .and.his assurance that meetings will con- he and the people of the northwest were prepared tp do. their share in taking up foreign. jjorids is believed to have contributed largely to success of the negotiations. Names of contributors of the bouus by which Armours were brought to St. Paul were not made public, but it. is said on good authority that with- out Mr. Hill's financial and moral support the deal would never have been consummated. His claim to having been the origin- al advocate of livestock development in the northwest is unquestioned and since the retirement of A. B. Stickney he has been the most ardent pro- ponent of the upbuilding of the indus- try at this centre, work which has been taken up enthusiastically by his son, Louis W. Hill.

WILL PUT DHIH OF Lethbridge citizens were greatly shocked to learn of the sudden death ast evening of Mrs, Marie Antoinette young wife of Dr. Roy, 13th St. South. Death took place at 9.30 last evening. No funeral arrangements vill be made until'the arrival of the deceased lady's mother, Madame Va- ade, of Ottawa, who is expected to ar- rive today. The deceased was but 27 years of age, and had been married only last September. The late Mrs. Hoy was he only child of Dr. and Madame Valade, prominent citizens of Otta- ttnd was a graduate nurse of Royal Victoria hospital, Montreal. !he was a grand-daughter of former jieutenant-Governor Royal, of the sTorthweat Territbrles. Last September she came to Leth- ridga as the bride of Dr. Roy, a jopular young practising physician ere, and member of the firm of De- reber, Campbell and Roy. Since then fie deceased has made a host of riends, who are grieving her untimely eath'-today. Magrath, May F. shaw, one of the sheep barons of the south country, and extensive land holder, has returned to Magrath, af- ter spending the winter at hie Utah home. Mr. (Bradshaw has his shearers all engaged, and expects to start shearing tomorrow at his Caidwell ranch south-west ot Cardston, he stat- ed that copious rains of last week were general, and that he encounter- id them all along on his journey to Canada. The city fathers in special session Friday night, passed a bylaw, impos- ing a license, of ?50 for the first pool table, and for oach succeeding one, the next morning when Marshall Fowler demanded the payment of the license, both pool hall proprietors re- fused, stating the tax was excessive, and immediately covered their tables and signified their Intentions by a few remarks, that they intended testing the bylaw. In Raymond the license is for the first tahle, the pool hall manager having paid it after consuHicg a Leth- -bridge attorney. 1 The towns in the province have been given the power to tax, and, ob- tain a reasonable amount of revenue from the pool halls, by an act passed at the recent sitting of tha legisla- ture. On June a three-act entitled "A Family will be staged in the opera house, under the direction of the Red. Cross society, Ernest Benniou is immediately in charge of the affair, composed of lo- cal talent, and judging from the suc- cess Mr. Benhion has attained, in. the past with his plays, the house should be crowded on the occasion. The warm weather after the re- freshing rains has wrought wonders with the grain, which can almost be seen growing. If the weather clears up entirely so the farmers on. the land, more oats and.barley will be seeded, together with late stuff for feeding purposes, all that is need- ed now is plenty of sunshine, and the wind to keep still.

Should Agnes Just show herself and do nothing more her act would he a success. She ia as vivacious ax she a pudgy, and her original line of com- edy is absolutely contagious. 'When she came down amongst the. audience Saturday for a fat man created a stir through the en- tire house. Her personal play was I given and taken good naturedlj, there being nothing offensive ahout the act. Smith and Quinn added a modern touch to the musical part of the pro- gram.

The work of Mr. Smith at the piano was extra special. The Pour Nelsons' close bill. These agile young men have probably the biggest reputatioa of any set bit the kind in vaudeville. They do "many of the most intricate acrobatic stunts with ease, their comedy and slap-stick work just being sufficiently strong to tone down the thrills. A lack of would-be comedy conversation usually attending these acts Is missing'from that.presented, by the Nelsons, thus oddlnjj much to its drawing powers. The bill is well varied and contains just enough.of tho ridiculous and the serious to strike a balance. It should appeal to everyone with a mine. Young Brown was working on the haulage and was caught under some cars and badly bruised. He was 'brought to the hospital and is being treated by the medical' staff.
