NOBODY KNOWS NUMBER Owing to a mistdlce a certain number in our contest has received some prominence Why the Right Number is Not Known . At our request Mayor Hatch chose a number from the 1,000 cards in the following manner: In the presence of witnesses sevien pieces of paper were numbered between 1 and 1,000 at tandom, these were laid face down on the table and one was chosen and sealed in an envelope, while the others were destroyed without being identified. Absolutely no person knows what the chosen number is. On Saturday afternoon Mayor Hatch will open the envelope at DOMINION SQUARE and the winning number will he publicly announced. Until then NOBODY KNOWS THE NUMBER Be sure to be there with your ticket, you may be the fortunate winner. Cars leave Batik of Montreal COmer every ten minutes after 10 o'clock.

Wind, rain and snow foreboded conditions for t&e morrow which would, in a. great mea-�ure spoil the nature of the welcoane to the royal guesls. Consequently, much of the program for the frontier celebration was countermanded, and the scheme of decorations also suffer-ed. Happily, the day broke fine and fair on Wednesday, and Sunny Alberta Jcopt up to ita reputation. F.laj,� and Btreamers decked the main route, \\r an arch of Alberta wheat with the Bign "Welcome." The snow of the jprevlcus night wreiathing itself halfway raund the telephone polos helped. A Mto of thi.'i and a taste of that, )! day JlongiduUt the appetite and weakens tha |, digeellen.

On a carpeted dias, wa'ltiiig to receive His Roya) Highness and Ills party, were Mayor Steadmau, Councillor Grady, R. 0. AlcUonnell and other prominent citizens. Among the visitors were Premier Sitton and Chief Justice Harvey. A suuail of boy scouts and the 'Indian cacUns of the at.

Tlif military urraugcmenls wero under the charge of Inspector Tuckor. Shaking hands with the nmyor on stepping from his car, iha Duke, who was in civilian dress, ijleasanlly remarked, "I met you in Ualgary." After ft few introductlouB, smiX presentutlcn of the officers of the 1{. N. \V. .M. P., the Duke proceeded to ;in&i)ect the veterans, addressing a l/.lndly word to each of them. Moanw|iilo thn DuoUesB convorBed amiably with those present. She was much lnleref.^ted in I lie Am-ericans-here, and was. very pkiasod to hoar from the mayor- that tlicy made the best of citizens.

Union Jack, To thi strains of the Hiiy band the youngsters sang the Naticnial Anthem. When the royal jiart^v .lv.i�l seated themselves on the tompo|'ar:y stand erected, the civic adtlress AVas read by the Secretary- Treasurer, Mr. Foster-Brown, as follows: "In presenting this address to your Royal Highness, the citizens of Macleod feel that you are Jiow in a town, which has not been inaptly termed, 'The future city in the Granarj- of the Empire.' We would also draw your attention to tho tact of Macleod e.v-emplifying in. the most realist4e manner tiie adaptability of western people to changed conditions which have arisen. Macleod notably hnving been the premier town in what but a few years ago the last remaining portion of the great cattle ranching conn-try, and now being tho cen'ti-e of a region which raises and exports more wheat to tho mile of railway operated than any other portion of the nrltleh Empire, all of which changed conditions have taken place in the last seven years. "We feel that you will find here strikingly exemplKicd :tho readiiness of pooplo troma 11 parts of the world to assimilate and speedily become loyal Canadian citizens, particularly so with those of our fellow citizens, who have done so much to develop this portion of Alberta and, hitherto, residing south of the '19th parallel. jOur Amorlcnn- cousins, In common with the rest of tho people of tho Dominion, feel that wo have been aignally honored in the selectimi of a member of the Roynl family as the vice-rcgal representative, being another tribute of our Craclons Sovereign's kindly consideration of his loyal sub,|octE, WF'lfaro In Canada, and whose citizens whatever their raqe or origin, we tr\ist he will never Und lacking in strengthening and preserving every defence commensurate with our. Empire's safety and well-being. A belief In which doubtless your Royal High-nesB, from a long nciiualntance of Canada ami its pooplo, will heartily concur." To which the Puke gave the follow, ing reply. "Your Worship and Gentlemen; I am gl.iil to have had an opportunity of payiufV Ihls short visit to Macleod, and beg to thank yoii most heartily for your address of welcome. 'l am well aware that among those whom I am now addressing there are a very gi'cat proportion who werp not burn under tlie British flag. "i.Most of will have rcAllzed by now that residence under that flag implies no disabilities; all wo ask is that the laws of Canada should be obeyed. , "With this proviso everyone Is free to come and go, to marry, to live, and to -die as seems best to him and as It pleases Providence. "We bring no pressure to bear on anyone to ndoi)t tho Canadian nationality, for we do not value citizenship which is obtainable under compulsion. "Our American cousins are welcome from over tho border; thrice welcome are our Canadian and Uritdsh brothers who return to the Union Jack after living under the Stars and Stripes. , "History is repeating itself. For SHE SUFFERED TEN MONTHS Mrs. Blankenship TelUof Her Restoration to Health by Lydia E. Pinkham't Veg� etable Compound. Elliston, Va.-"I feel It my duty to express my thanks for wh�t Lydis E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound haa done for me. I was a sufferer from fc'-male troubles and had been confined in bed over one third of my tim* (or ten monthi. I eould not do my housework and had fainting spells ao that myhua-band could not leava me alone for five minutes at a time. "Now I have been restored to health and it haa come from taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. Whenever I sec a suffering woman I want to tell her what this medicine has done for mo and 1 will alwnya s|Mak a good word for it" -Mrs. ROBERT BLANK-ENSUir, Elliston, Va., Montgomery Co. Was Helpless -Now Well. Trenton, Mo.-"About two years ago I had female trouble and inflammation so bad that 1 was literally halpleas and had to be tended like a baby. I could not move my baly or lift my foot for such severe pains that I had to scream. I was very nervous and had a weakness. "Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has helped me to such an extent that I think there is no medicine like it for female troubles. I am up and able J to do mywork again and I give you full permission to publish my letter for th� sake of other suffering women."-Mra \V.T.PuiiNRU,.32Q-10th SL.Xreaton.JUia many years hundreds of young Britishers have sought fortune In the western states; time has 'brought about a change 'find tho tide has set in the_ other direction, bringing across the frontier numbers of our neighbors to whom we are glad to return hospitality. "Macleod, one of the chief dispensers of such hospitality in proportion to its population, has, as you have said, changed its character from the important cattle towoi, to the centre of a thriving, wheat-prO'ducing area. "What it has lost from the picturesque point of view it has gained on the material side, and I wish in conclusion to express tho hope that the prosjMjrity which has evidenced itself here in the past ten ye.Tra may continue unabated in the future." A bouquet of rod roses was presented the Duchess by Miss Olive Young, and one of pink carnations to the Princess by Clarence -Matthews. The Duchess also received a bouquet from an Indian girl on behalf of the Indian school. Tho Duke than proceeded to present colors to tho Boy Scouts, ad dressing them briefly on theiir duty, and impressing on them the remembrance of the rules of the Scout code, particularly the first relating to kindness to (he weak and respect to su-perioi-s. He trusted that the scout movement would go on lncren.9lng. Tho Indian cadet corps also came under his attention. Presentations of cdtizon.s and their wives followed, and the procession ro-fovmed and drove througli tho city. One of the kindly acts performed by tho Duke was a visit to tho veteran John Ryan, who nenring ninety years of age was unaiblo to he present at ih public fuuctloii. Ho had served through the Indian MuUny, being attached to the GOth Rifles. In bis few mdnutes converse with tho Duke, who greeted him warmly, tho old soldier lived In memory his battles over again and proudly exhibited for Ills Roynl Hlghnos.?' Inspection tho modnlB be hud earned. Luncheon was taken privately on tho train, and the afternoon was devoted to the Frontier celebration on the agricultural grounds. Hero the Duke and iris parly wore presented with handsome hjind-palnted programs displaying on leather the Union Jack sido by side with tho Oiinadlan Hag. Another unique souvenir icndorc was in tho shape of two military buttons connected by links. On the one was cmboBsod a picture of old Fort Whoop-np with the American flag, showing how slight British tenure was in those days, with tho date 1874. On the other was the coat of arms ol Colonel Macleod (lanked by the Union Jack with date 191:2.. The design originated wltb U, U. -McDouaeli, and was lintended to show the striking contrast between then and now. The Frontier celebration was shorn of much of its attraction through the absence of the Indian parade and other features which were countermanded owing to weather prospects. A novel event was the pony express race In which horses were charge'd at full gallop. There were buck-jumping contests In which the redoubtable Tom "rhreo Persons again distinguished himself. He was presented to the Duke, and received at the hands of the Duchess tho medal for the world's championship. The Chinese of Macleod were well to the tore in according the Duke their respects. They furnished a float in the parade, supplied with a Chinese iband of musicians, and also presented an address In Chinese through It. G. McDonnell, who explained Its coiitonits to the Duke, embodying their sentiments. In the proces-�.ion of floats of tho local merchants the Hudson's Bay Company exhibited a fac-slmilo of an old outpost with fur-skins. Tlio royai party followed the proceedings throughout with keon interest, and at tho conclusion left for the train which conveyed them to Lethbridge. ^ � The Duke's visit has grAitly pleased i the citizens of Macleod, and the bon- . homie, affability and absence of formality on the part of himself and tho royal party limpressed orerybody most favorably. A civic holiday was declar-od for the occasion, and all stores wero closed. FORMER MINISTEA KILLED Edmonton, Oct, 10.-ReV. W.
