The postpone d Trafalgar concert was held in Olivev's Hall Thursday, 2rid instant, and was a rare musical treat. Lctlibridge is to ha congratulated upon the amount and quality of musical talent which exists in town. The first numl^er, a piano duet from Gottschaltz by Madame Begin and her daughter. Miss Regi-nala, was artistically and brilliantly rendered and evidently delight-ed 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 to several encores. Miss Burnett's �6ong, "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 consentetl to recite "The Volunteer Organist," and in response to an encore rRcited 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," a difficult song to interpret, but which found adequate expression in his rendering. It was a pleasing surprise to his friends when the Rev. 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 hia own comjxjsition, "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,"aud 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 Tillea'tjy Miari 'jSelEirft ourii vviio' render�i the well known and difficult 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 Song." which were both well received. Mrs. Rogers' and Miss Burnett's duet was rendered in a most pleasing manner and was followed by loud 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 the possessor of a pure, sweet tenor voice 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. J. H. 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 $61.50 and will Ix-devoted to the fund for furnishing the new nurses' home in connection with the Gait hospital. A BRIGHT FUTURE Lethbridge Bound to Be a Commercial Centre. BACKED BY A DOMAIN OF WEALTH Ulimlted Area of Virgin Soil Await ingthe Pit ighshare of the Husbandman. The casuaL observer traveling through Albntta, after visiting the principal citioj, is firmly impressetl with the idta that throughout this great domain that promises prospoirous lirirjes to many thousands, there i^ not a town with brighter prosi ccts for promising future than Lethbridge, It is useless for newspapers or individuals to talk about a town and predict unparalleled prosperity unless there is a basic foundation ujjon which one can legitimately rest the claims made. Fortr-iiiitely for the people of Lethbridge there is no need to resort to iinagyjation or the methods of the unreliable boomer to give to tlie world at large interesting information regarding one of the best towns in the great province of Alberta today. First, nowhere on th(i American continent is there a land that is inore talked of today, than the province of Alberta, In the homes of the Yankees from west as far' as the railway tariffs ' will iK;nnit its shipment. From 500 to 800 men are employed year in and year out, and the pay roll of the country niiis into many thousands each month. There 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 impor. tant buildings of both a public and private nature now planaod 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 this town, 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 can 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. She and her playful twelve-year-old brother were amusing themselves Wish to annouiice that they are open im- business in the new store next to C, W.

Pendleton, Oct, 26,-It is not difficult to accoimt for the decreasing population in parts of Umatilla county, although the country is now richer and producing more wheat, hay, fruit and livestock than ever before. This week about 15 persons will leave Athena for Canada ynd in the past two years about 200 ixiople from different parts of the county have preceded this party. Frank Rank, deputy stock inspector for Umatilla comity (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 leave for Canada are the following: Steve Canargy and Alex, Lemery with 40 head of horses for Claresholui and E. G, Taylor, A. C. MiJntyre with 30 head of horses for Nanton. Canada. All these people have been engaged in farming in the vicinity of Athenea, and wiU buy land in Canada and locate permtinently there, Within the past two years, one entire district near Clareshol has been settled by Umatilla coui, ty people and all are well satis " with there new homes. Wheat land can be sold vicinity of Athene for from 185 per acre and raw land ci bought in Canada for from $10 $15 per acre, (thus giving the new settlers from fi^to seven acres in Canada to oue^lJmatilla county. This is a view of the new C. PTRrstatiori^aslVwiirKie'eirfrom the city. On tlie opposite side will be the tracks.

The building will cost complete abotit $20,000, Montana to Florida, from Washington to New Jersey, the length find breadth of Canada's great agricultural province is familiar. To the people of Eastern Canada the opportunities offered in tliis fair province seem like a fairy dream. In the homes of Old England brother talks to brother, and mother to father of the land of the golden west, while on the continent in the vfirious languages of varied countries the fame of Albf^rta is known in the palace of the rich and in the home of the [joor. The new west and the last west is the Mecca for thousands who look upon tlie plains of Alberta as the promised laud, wliere industrj' will yield w(!nlth, indeijendence and the contentment of miiid that is the natural attribute of a happy home and a prosperous family. Located as is the city of Lethbridge, amidst thousands of acres of fertile soil, the natural centre of tliis vast section, which has hardly been touched by the ploughshare, it is not strange that her advancement durnig the past few years has been rapid, or that the growth is conceded by all to be of a most permanent nature. The pessimist, taking a most unfair view of the past, could hardly say that there had been a boom in Lethbridge. The oi^tiinist would surely say that the gtowtli has been depressingly slow when the conditions iy;j�ijiji�^fcJu|li?'-i�;.CQi^ tion. unbiased im touched! past, must step forwati has been tal iniate demand tributary 1 years has . jjrovement^itt' proveuientltl witli thejdi try.

Her brother had just placed little Flossie on the back of a young horse, when the animal, evidently becoming nervous, ran across the yard into the 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 trampled upon by the other horses.
