Knight Academy Notes "Miss Boy-son and .Mr. Speakman. of the public school staff, have enrolled ,in President class in ad- vanced pschology. A new student from one of tho far northern settlements enrolled this [week, Ella Lybbcrt, of Brant. Several other students are expected from the northern this Winter. A class has been oijj'.imued in cur- rent topics. Current literature will be studied. The popular winter roursfi will start on Nov. 1 and it is expected tbat a large clasti will be school at that time. Besides -a1 general course pupils may take up domefttic science and arts, and chorus ami manual training. Tho faculty has derided to dismiss school to allow students and faculty members to attend tbe Dry-Farming; Congress. j Arrange men ts 'been mad-s; whereby any sindent who 1ms not thei money for his or her tuition, but whoi has a .desire-for an. education, may; have their tuition rtrovided for. Such students should ccjnmunicato direct: to the president. i This year looks as though it was the 'history, of. the- .Knight.

Monday WHS a very nice day but Tuesday, snow, rain and aleei fell all through the day putting an end fo cutting and threshing for an in definite length of time. However, il cleared off Wednesday night anc Thursday and Friday were clear.''Dur- ing the evening H has frozen excep' tionally hard. A groat deal of the grain that was not cut is knocked flat Luckily most of the crops 'were safely harvested before the snow came or the loss would have been very mater- ial. As it is there is practically no loss with, 'the exception of time. II is reported that some potatoes have been frozen, but .where they had a reasonable covering of earth ovei them they are undoubtedly safe. Threshing will probably 'be recom- menced on Monday morning. It is the thought that tbe grain will be ready for threshing then, although il will1 not bo any too dry. There has been quite a lot of moisture fallen and as a rule the bundles are fairly wet. It has also been impossible to pro- ceed with the sugar beet harvest. Tho company started their full campaign lust Monday morning but the gang of diggers were driven .to sbeltcr when the storm came. .There is this splen- did advantage in sugar beets, they do not depreciate in value through beinsf frozen. Although the snow has not done them any particular good, it surely has done them no harm. The company will likely begin on their beete ou Monday also. Ladles Will Have Display One part of the Raymond section at the Dry-Farming Congress exposi- tion has 'been allotted to the Womens' at a meeting of that or- ganization held 'Wednesday plans were j consummated for filling the space with the best exhibition of ladies' W0rk that could -be found hi the dis- trict. Coal Is Scarce Article There is a serious dearth of coal in Raymond and this condition has ex- isted for several weeks past. There are two coal dealers hi town an-d they both claim it is almost impossible to get cars for coal. They do their ut- most to supply the demand, tout this is, apparently an impossibility under existing conditions. During the cold snap a rush was nra-de "or coal bins but they were found empty. Something should he done and done quick for winter. It is deliberate fool- ishness to put oft stocking up with coal until winter sets, in and then be- gin to bestir oneself in a hustle to get n supply when the dealers are getting only one or two cars a week. Raymond Exhibit Arrangements are rapidly being per- fected in regards to tbe Raymond dis- tricc exhibit at the exposition to he held in connection v. national Dry-Farming Lethbridge, October ith the Inter- Congress at 19-20. T. W. Harris and his assistants are working hard, and they arc meeting with en- couraging success hi their work. Some splendid material is being gathered for the exhibit and tbe other features are going on apace. Early next week a gang nf men under the supervision of Mr. llurrls will commence on the exhibit at exposition hall in Lcthbrldge. The display promises to bo one that will do credit to the progress and development of the Su- gar Town. Tomorrow at the Latter Day Saints first 'warn meeting house at the Sun- day school session a lecture will be delivered by Prof, Ernest of the Knight Academy, before the parr outs'- clase, the subject of his ad- dress being "Child Culture." While in kethbridge some time ago visiting her parents Miss Bthelyn Young, daughter of '.Mr. and Mrs. B. S. Young, was severely scalded ou the arm.' ft was found necessary to call} in Dr. McNally who dressed the wound and according to latest reports she is getting along nicely. Quite a ntHQber of loyal Raymond ites journeyed to Lethbridge lasl Thursday to get a glimpse of royalty the Duke and Duchess of Connaughi and Princess Patricia. The fitorm pre- vented some from going who other- wise would have taken in the trip, as a general desire was expressed to see the new Governor -Gneral and his charming wife aud daughter. Those who visited Lethbridge on Thursday were more than delighted and, they feel .bigger and better citizens as a result. During1 tbe past week the Knight Sugar company shipped another con- signment to Calgary. There were about four hundred head in the shipmqnt and it required 22. ears- to transport them. The lot brought in. an amount-In .the neighborhood oi fifty thousand dollars. This fall the company is shipping a train load every week. They have about two 01- three more shipments to make !before their fall sales are completed. Mr. anil Mrs. W., S.

While in Utah they were married, and spent the .remainder of the time visiting with their numerous' The young eouple will .make their future home in Raymond., The Herald joins with their many friends in wishing them a.long and prosperous wedded life. About eighteen young ladies held a most delifhtful social at the home of Miss Hazel Skouson last Wednesday eveniiig, and a most is re- ported 'by those who -were so fortun- ate, as to receive a.ibid. The evening was pleasantly spent in uiusie; and games and at half time a splendid Chicken dinner was partaken of. Miss Skouson is most pleasing hostess it Recital a Success The recital given on Thursday even- ing by little Miss Ilortense Gordon Was an unqualified "success, the child artist conducting herself much grace and dignity. She .plays remark- ably well, and her selections were well received. In the sextette from Lucia she was assisted by her bro- ther, Fairfax, and tho two made a de- cided bit. Miss Gordon was assisted by Mrs. Francis Tahner, in select readings; SK Wasden, contralto; Miss Urscnbach, soprano, and Mr. Nye, tenor. They all did splendid ser- vice. Miss Gordon -ig a promising young artisl, and her first appearance certainly surprised her audience.-She is a pupil of Mr. Jones, of Lethbridge. A Denial A report has boon in circulation on thf streets of. Raymond to the effect that T, through having had access to the books of the municipality, bad stated that certain sums of money, aggregating to a large been misappropriated. What motive tho individual hud in starting such a malicious story I do not know, nor ,rc, but I do wish to publicly nail the statement as a monstrous lie. True, my business has caused me to be in the town office a great deal dur- ing tho past mouth, but so far as the council's business is concerned it has always been iis safe with me as it has been with any member of the muni- cipal government. 1 -have never made comment on the financial status of the town, and therefore the story ac- credited to me lacks the very semb- lance- of I trust tbat the citi- zens ot' Raymond have not generally DELIVERY OF HERALD There have been lome, com- lattly in respect to the ser- vice given by the Herald in the wiy of the delivery of the papers. Some wy they do not get their papers rtflularly, and claim they only receive one, two or three a week. There is a mistake somewhere and the Her- ald investigating it. A search- Ing inquiry has been initltuted, but the reaion why the papers are not delivered still remains a profound mystery.

The management.sincerely wishes to give good service to the people of the south. It has made a name In this part of the country, and do you think it would be good busi- ness neglect its readers in its strongholds? This would be folly; it would be1 suicidal. Parties who do not get their pa- pers when they ought to get them "should advice the management promptly. This Is the only way a paper has of knowing the true condition of affaire as to its cir- culation. You would confer a great "favor on the central office and avoid personal annoyance by send- ing a postcard'promptly to either the Circulation Department, Leth- brldge, or the local representative. It would probably be quicker'by communicating direct to the head office, where all matter pertaining to circulation Are administered. It Is the desire of this paper to sat- isfy its readers, and we therefore ssk ycy to cs-spcratc with us irs overcoming a slight hitch in an Intricate system.

Minnie Bulwlulile, janitress of the Alexander chapel, is dying in St. Vincent's Hos- pital here of burns which she receiv- ed on Friday, when the sun's rays, fccuBsed in a big brass lamp reflector, started a. tiny lire in the material of her skirt. Mrs. Biihvinble was standing on the front steps of the chapel, awaiting her son's return from school, and she had the reflector, which she had hoen polishing-, under her left arm. Sud- denly she felt a sharp pain in her leg, looked down, anil saw that her skirt was on fire. The woman lost her head completely, and ran into the street screaming, anil fanned the tiny flame into a 'blaze, and in a moment all her clothes were ignited. The woman, who cannot live, "was removed to the Hospital.

The affair was purely an accident, and everything was done to save the poor child's life. It's suf- fering was intense and hud it lived there is a probability of it's being: partially paralyzed for life.
