In that despatch the affair, is pictured as an attempt on the part of the Mor- mons to rnob "Gentiles" because they were "Gentiles" or ia other words that it was Mormon vs. non-Mormon fight. Such was nut the case by any jir.-aiis as none of the parties are Mor- mons, the Baxters all being Presby- terians. Regrettable and unjustifi- able as it is., the affair is such as is quite likely to happen ia any com- munity under similar circumstances. The despatch is a libel on the peo- ple ,of Magrath in stating that their religious belief is the cause of it. The person who sent that despatch must have done it with intent to cast re- flection on the Mormon people, hop- POINTED (Chicago News) A magnetic speaker is naturally a. drawing card. Men who know themselves are of- ten suspicious of others. A woman's heartbreaks are almost as bad as a man's indigestion. The less said about the age of a woman and canned goods the bolter. He who isn't a progressive musician s always up to his old tricks. Any man become? an idval husband the day his wife becomes a widow. For reasons unnecessary to mention some people never have brain fng. A woman isn't necessarily smart because she says things that make others smart. Any man may be justified in blow- ing his horn, but not on going on a toot. If a man tells a woman she is all the world to him she can forgive him for wanting the earth. Many a ma.n lias been caught at his own game by people who K-t him think he was fooling them. Mont-y may make the mare it falls down when it attempts i-> start a stubborn mule down the pike.

"COMRADE CHURCHILL" Grayson, Thinks "Master Win- ston" Nearly a Socialist Mr. Victor Grayson, M. P., has hope of Mr. Winston Churchill becoming a Socialist "comrade." Mr. Gruysou said in a speech at Rochdale recent- ly: "The ineviiableness of Socialism is shown by Mr. Winston Churchill's pleading in the House of Commons in reference to railway amalgamation, which, he said, was 'only a prepara- ion for the groat and he looked across at the sympathetically as he said :t. "If we change the word and make .it 'the great amalgauiau !l think Mr. Winston Churchi'l w.ll jjoin us. When Mr. Churchill says the inevitable tendency of the railway j companies is to combine to elimin- iate competition and substitute c for the chaos of waste and competition, I feel 1 am listen rig 10 j isorue chap making a speech. to one of my to hide behind the regular corres- 1 pondents to the outside papers who naturally would be blamed for send- ing the despatch. There is no doubt that a good deal of harm has been done by the false report sent out and it is impossible to have contradic- tions given as much prominence as such, startling news News- papers should have their regular cor- respondents confirm such wild des- patches sent by irresponsibles before publishing them. The Telegram got a scoop but the other papers which withheld the item for confirmation got the facts. REMEDY THIS GRIEVANCE It is difficult to lunderstand why the mails put on the eastbound train here each night ior Bow Island and Grassy Lake are carried through to Medicine Hat and then sent back the following day and dropped off at these stations. It ought to be enough to assort the mail and place a bag off at these points from the east bound train. There is no reason why the letters and papers posted at Leth- bridge should take two days to reach these towns less than a hundred miles from here. The Post-office Department fail to realize the inconvenience of the pre- sent service to these towns and to Lethbridge for the matter has been brought to their attention by Sen- ator DeVeber and the Board ..d Trade on several occasions. These places should prepare a peti- tion a mile long if necessary and fire it at the Department. The drop of the huge document may waken up the department of the government able to report a sur- plus. Let us have a better service and a little less surplus. KEEP THEM OUT Despatches tell us that the Dowie- ites are looking forward to a nev home in the neighborhood of Edmon- the coming of these lunatics. Let us populate the province with sane peo- ple and keep out the freaks. Edmonton should see to 't that The
