VVoolfijrd was held in the Curdston a.s8einbly hall. The good people of the Woolford district turned out almost en masse to express their sympathy for the bereaved parents. The speakers were Messrs. Sctli H. Thomas, Vresidenl.s Wood, Duce and Williams. Ai)propriate nni-sic! was furnished by the Cardston Choir, At the cemetery the remains w.'re placed in a well constructed biick vault which was cement scaled, the dedication prayer being offered by Mr. TI. M. Brown. .\11 undortak-iiig arrangements were admirably ciirrii'd out under tiie supervision of Mr. W. O. Lee. New Bishop at Mt. View The tx'ople of Mountain View belonging to till! Ho-eiilled Mormon Church, were out in large numbers y.'sterdiiy on account of the re-organ-i/iition of i\w Bishopric. Bishop V. 1. .Stewart has acted in this position tor some sixteen years and at his own niiui'St was released yesterday. The iirw incumbent is Mr. .las. S. Parker will) is well anil favorably known in Southwestern .Mberta. His assistants are those formerly had by Jlp. yiewait, Mcsisrs. Jos. Payne and Kr-nt'st I'arrisli. Tlu' new stone church b/ing erected by the people of Mt. View is now being roofed in and will I),' a very creditable structure. They hope to complete it before the close of the yi'ar. The new building will Iiroviiltt adequate, accommodation for all depiirlments of tin; Sabbath school as well as a fine auditorium for genenil gatliorings. The visitors present yesterday were President Kdw. J. Wood,^ Tlio.s. Duce and S. Willfams, Me.ssr.s. Jno. V. I'arrish, Wiltard Sorenson, Will. West, 1,. I^r. Woolf and Krnest Wynder of the High Council. There was a general feeling of regret at the release of 15p, Stewart as well a* one of satisfaction because of the appointment of so worthy a suc-cstSKor.

All correspondence must bo aocompanlod by the writer's name otherwiso publication will �>o rofuaod. -EdHor.) Color, Flavor, Fragrance arc the strong points of Cardston, Nov. IG.-There has been no dearth of amusements for the Curdston public during the past week. On Monday evening last a .^very flattering audience greeted the Raymond Dramatic Company in their presentation of East I-ynne. It is needless to say that the por-formunce gave general .satisfaction- for a local organization the characters wer.e well sustained. .\s the smooth, selfish, villanous man of the w;orld Mr. Johnson's interpretation of the character of Francis I.evison could scarcely be imi)roved. Mr. B. 8. Young as Archibald Carlyle was also a good rendition while all the ladieiH ocrjuitted themselves with credit, the best sustainr-d character being that of Aunt Courney by Dorothy Young. Tlie only criticism of an adverse character that could be given wa.s the rather "too animated" death scene portrayal of the final act. The audience gave substantial evidence of thvir appreciation of the local talent-come again. The Scotch Entertainers met with less cordial reception than our Raymond friends. Only a scanty few were present. The advertising was not far enough ahead of the performance to let the public know of their coming. The New Bridge The steel has arrived and a large force of workers is now engaged in placing the same in position for the completion of the new bridge on Main street. We have been without it for a sufliciently long time to make us appreciative. The many teams hauling in grain from the Aetna, Kimball and Taylorville districts, have had serious difliculties at the Creek crossing. The ice has not been firm enougli to boar up the loads of grain and yet has held up the light loaded vehicles for a week past. The bridge will make an end of all our difhcul-ties at this point. There have been large deliveries of gram during the past week as the COMMUTED SENTENCES threshers have been running full Ottawa, Nov. 18.-The cabinet yes-time.

THE GRAIN YIELD Kditor of the Merahl: Dour ,Sir,-The Calvary Herald coinoH out in glaring headlines about the large sliipment of grain from OlareHholin. We have no objection to Claresholin advertiHing its wonderful shipments of ^^raln provided the\ would tie fair and square In their'-om pnriRoiiH. CompiirlsoiiH are odious at any Htugc of the game, but when they nie false they become obiio.xi.iiis. I'o" in.stiuK'c, (Mare.Hhotin elaiin.s 2(i0,.'>00 bu.shels, Lethbridgo l-,(.\,r,00.

The fact of the motter is that at one .station in the Lethliridge district, ;\lagrath, over �100,000 bushelH of wheat have been Bhlp))ed thl.s fall. Mere wc havt; two hirge mills running night and day and half a doziui elevators crowded to their full capacity. Three farmers in the I.ethliridge district have as much grain as the entire output from Claresholni, their own figures. They are Jlessis. Thomp.son, .leiisen mid Brailshnw. We are aware of the fact that ('laresholiii~ls a good grain district. Then" is no discoiint-inn' that fact. But there are others and there is nlsf) vitv little need for C'laresholm or any other portion of Southern Alhorta to rear up on its hind feet and brn.v abtnit another por tion of the district. ft is all good and in a fair way to raise one hundred times as much grain as has ever been raised before. We liave only been doing a little "hen scratching'" at' the iiresent time, before long we shall be engaged in actual farming. Fair Figures.
