Tlie postpone d Trafalgar concert was hiild in Olivev's Hall Thursday, 2nd instant, and was a rare musical treat. Lethbridge is lo be congratulated upon the amount and quality of musical talent which exists in town, The first number, a piano duet from Gottschaltz by Madame Begin and her daughter, Miss Regi-nala, was artistically and brilliant-ly rendered and evidently delighted the audience. Next a song by Mr. Cherry, "The Death of Nelson," was well received, This was followed by the Harmony Male Quartette composed of Messrs. Harrop, Hings, Kilner and Cunningham, who rendered the amusing selection, "The Catastrophe," in fine style ; they also rendered during the evening "The Madrigal," "From the Mikado." "Alice" and responded lo several encores, Miss Burnett's �eong. "Island of Dreams," was very sweetly rendered and evoked much applause and an^ encore. Mrs. Reeve, owing to a severe cold, was unable to appear and in her place Miss Grace consented to recite "The Volunteer Organist," and in response to an encore rftcited a humorous piece which was received with storms of applause. Mr. H.G. Kilner was very happy in the selection of his song, "The Wolf." difficult song to interpret, but hich found adequate expression in his rendering. It. was a pleasing surprise to his friends when the "lev. J. S. Chivers stepped forward and delivered in an inimitable manner several comic selections. While Mr. Chivers is well known as a pulpit orator and music composer not many were aware he possessed dramatic talent of so high an order. Later in the evening Mr. Chivers gave another proof of his versatility by the rendition of a song of his own composition. H. M.S.," words by Miss Pauline Johnson. Mr. F. W. Harrop excelled himself in his song. "The Sailor's Grave," by Sir Arthur Sullivan, followed by an encore. Eileen Alannah,"and later he and Mr. Kilner made a hit in their descriptive duet, "Tenor and Baritone." Mrs. Reeve's second place in the programme was acceptably niltxl tiy~HtlbS"Tiolc-n "SiOw iiuriT \Vuo rendered the well known and ditli-ult Second Mazourka, by Godard. in a most creditable manner and merited her encore. Mr. Cunningham sang "His Majesty the King" with an encore, the "Stein Sony." which were both well received. Mrs. Rogers' and Miss Burnett's duet was rendered in a most pleasing manner and was followed by oud applause and call for an encore. One of the gems of the evening was Mr. Hings' song, "I'll Sing the Songs of Araby"; another his encore. Spring Flowers." Mr. Hings is :io possessor of a pure, sweet tenor yoice and uses it to advantage. Mrs. Neale contributed a great deal towards the success of the evening by her artistic accompaniments to the various numbers-particularly so in Mr. Hings' songs. The report would not be complete without mentioning Mr. .1. II. Fleetwood, on whose initiative the concert was undertaken, the programme being handled by Mr. E. A. Cunningham. The net proceeds we are informed, amount to f>l.f)0 and will be dovoted to the fund for furnishing the now nurses'home in connection with the Gait hospital. a b: AJTO OA* Office, Southard Block -..e y to Lend on Town and Farm Property muss, B.A., Crown Prosecutor suit, B. A W. TULLER A BRIGHT FUTURE Lethbridge Bound to Be a Commercial Centre. BACKED BY A DOMAIN OF WEALTH Ulimited Area or Virgin Soil Awaiting the Pkighshare of the Husbandman. The casual observer traveling through Albi"-ta, after visiting the principal cities, is firmly impressed with the idea that throughout this great domain that promises prosperous in mes to many thousands, there i� not a town with brighter prosructs for a promising future than Lethbridge, It is useless for newspapers or individuals to talk about a town and predict unparalleled prosperity unless there is it basic foundation upon which one can legitimately rest the claims made. Fortunately for the people of Lethbridge there is no need to resort to imagination or the methods of the u >reliable boomer to give to the world at large interesting information regarding one of the best towns in the great province of Alberta today. First, nowhere on the American continent is there n land that is i \ore talked of today, than the province of Alberta. In the homes of the Yankees from west as far' as the railway tariffs will permit its shipment. From f)(X) to HU0 meti are employed year in and year out, and the pay roll of. the country runs into many thousands each month. Thero are other industries, while the railway interests are large and are rapidly increasing. The past year has been one of great improvement in Lethbridge, and the magnificent business blocks constructed, and the important buildings of both a public and private nature now planned and fully arranged for, tell the story of the growth of the town and the confidence of the people. When corporations with millions in capital decide to expend thousands in permanent buildings in thiBtown, they furnish the evidence that even the blind may read, as to what the future is bound to be. The wise man of today will not hesitate when it comes to Leth-bridge's future. If he cau read the signs of the time, if he can gaze through a mill stone with the traditional hole, he will tie to the town that is destined to be the commercial and railway centre of Southern Alberta, and stands today with better opportunities than any other town in this glorious province, Little Tot Breaks Arm. Flossie, the four-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs John Mitchell met with an unfortunate accident about 5.30 Saturday evening that might have caused her death.

Oct. 2d. It is not difficult to account for the decreasing population in parts of Umatilla county, although the country is now richer and producing more wheat, hay, fruit and livestock than over before. This week about 15 persons will leave Athena for Canada and in the past two years about 200 people from different parts of the county have preceded this party. Frank Rank, deputy stock inspector for Umatilla county .yesterday inspected about 70 head of work horses which will be sent to Canada this week. Among those who are in the last party to lea\e forCanada are the following: Ste\ e Canargy and Alex. Lemery with 40 head of horses for Claresliohu and E. G. Taylor, A. C. McJntyiv with 30 head of horses for Nanton. Canada. All these peoplo have been engaged in fanning in the vicinity of Athonea, and will buy land in Canada and locate permanently thero. Within the past two years, one entire district near Claresliohu. has been settled by Umatilla coiin* ty people and all are well satisf with there new homes. Wheat land can bo sold n vicinity of Athene for from $85 per acre and raw land carnal bought in Canada for from $10 $15 per acre, fame of Alberta is known in the palace of tlv rich and in the home of the poor. The new west and tho last west is the Mecca for thousands who look upon the plains of Alberta as the promised land, where industry will yield wealth, independence and the contentment of nr.nd that is the natural attribute of a happy home and a prosperous family. Located as is tho city of Lethbridge. amidst thousands of acreB of fertile soil, the natural centre of this vast section, which has hardly been touched by the ploughshare, it is not strange that her advancement during the past few years has been rapid, or that the growth is conceded by all to bo of a most permanent nature. Tin pessimist, taking a most unfair view of the past, could hardly say that there had been a boom in Lethbridge. The optimist would surely say that the gcowth has been depressingly slow when the coi ditions aw iukou-1ally 4U cousidur-tiou Butfittffi^gapuable- man, unbi.ibed ba^Mecnvo profito or untouched %'$^io8fhii-*df the past, must acknowledge that every step forward ittken by this town has been taken tb-iueet the legit imate demand of |bo growth of tho tributary territory!

Her brother had just placed ittle Flossie on the back of a young horse, when the animal, evidently becoming nervous, ran across the yard into tho stable, where the little tot was thrown off right among several other horses. The force of the fall broke her arm and it was indeed lucky that she was not irampled upon by the oth-r horses. The fractured member jer was cared for by Drs..Mewburn and Galbraith, and Flossie is doing as well as could be hoped for. Cupid is Busy.
