Montreal, Oct. 21.-As the result of the annual meeting of the National Hockey League at the Windsor hotel Saturday, a three-club schedule is assured tor thi-i season and there is every liklihood that four clubs will ] compete for professional hockey honors during the coming winter. ! Whether Qulnn will operate the ; franchise in the National Hockey �League is still a problem, but it is likely that, with no other league in sight, there will be two teams in Toronto this winter, one to be operated by the Toronto Arena Company, which j won the title last season, and the other by the Shamrock club. (By J. F. B. Livesay. Canadian Press Correspondent.) . With the Canadian Forces, Oct. 21.- Here are more outstanding deeds of Canadian soldiers, whoso bugle note, clear and loud, will ring iu, every Canadian heart. One of the hardest initial tasks ot the opening phase ot the battle of Cambrai was the crossing of the Canal du Nord by the Canadian 1st division, which then turned due north, as well as east, thus cleaning np the east bank and capturing the strongholds of lans-les-Marquoln and Marquoin from the flank and rear. In this operation the attacking brigade was assigned the e.xtremely difficult task of passing over the canal on a narrow front of 1-4 mile, thereafter fanning out to a front of over three miles. While every valiant ofR-cers commanded three battalions in the attack they were battalions in the :ittack, they were only seconds in :pmraand, with no previous experience 'n battle command. This greatly increased the responsibilities of the brlg-idier, who, therefore, kept in closest touch throughout the crossing of the ;anal. Shortly after zero, under a heavy 'ire, while the enemy still held part of the left bank, entirely regardless ot persoi;.-!? i';:nger, he spent the whole lay Iv. tff -'icinity of the attacking battalitiLiably directing and dealing with the difiicult situations as they arose. Tbroughout he displayed conspicuous gallantry, splendid initiative and-outstanding leadership during the battle of Cam(>rai. .

Bna ONE DEATH F FLU AT BARONS (Prom Onr Own corresporidcnt) Barons, Oct. 22.-Eleven oasqs ot Spanish influenza have developed in this district and one death, that of the ten-year-old daughter of Die Folles-tad, occurred this.morning. The little girl had only been ill two days and had been refused transportation on tl}e railway when her father tried to get her to Lethbridge yesterday.^ One ot the most unfortunate circumstances connected with the epidemic is that Dr. Wallwin is laid up with the disease and that the nearest medical practitioner is at Claresholm, a distance ot nearly thirty miles away. The schools have been closed and church services cancelled, and the entertainment for. returned soldiers, arranged for Friday night, has been called off. Most of the cases of influenza are in the country. On Friday evening Ben Keller brought in a load of booze in his automobile and, under the impression that Constable Mackie of the A.P.P. had gone to 'Vulcan, began peddling the hot stuff openly on the street. Unfortunately for him the constable had dropped off the train a short distance from the station and caught the bootlegger red-handed. Keller is to be tried' by Mr. Welsh, J.P., on Saturday. W WAIT UNTIL EPIDEMIC IS OVE That night he made a daring reconnaissance and next, day, disregarding his wound when the troops on the right failed to keep up^ with the advance of his unit, he established contact with them, covering the gap and thus securing a very dangerous �position. Led the Attack. On the following day, discovering i!5at at 9 o'clock all the officers of two companies on his right were casualties, he took charge and led the attack successfully through double belts of wire, swept by shell and machine gun fire, personally rusbing an entire group, and single-handed capturing 22 prisoners. When the troops on the eastern flank failed to keep up he connected the line and beat off three enemy counter-attacks. At 2.30 that afternoon he was knocked unconscious by a shell, but recov- The Herald wishes to announce to the citizens of Lethbridge and vicinity who have so kindly donated reading matter for the convalescent soldiers at Prank, that until the Spanish influenza is over, there will bo no more shipments made to that place.

Murphy, aged 30, better' known as "Corey," who played with Edmonton in the W^est-ern Canada League and also with Hamilton in the Canadian League, died this morning after a week's illness from Spanish Influenza. He was a member of the Wellingtons of the local semi-professional league and played in the recent series for the championship. against counter-attacks, refusing to evacuate until the battalion was relieved. His coolness and daring won this glorious battle. A sergeant of the same battalion during the operations described above, when all the officers in his vicinity bad become casualties and Jthough seriously wounded in the leg, recognized that the situation was most serious and must be controlled, remained in a shell hole, whence, though unable to move, he directed the men for ten hours, heartening them by his counsel and refusing to be evacuated until the battalion was relievet). Not only his courage and fortitude, but hie cool and accurate messages to headquarters throughout the day saved a very tight corner. Southeast of Eplnoy on Sept. 28, a private of an Edmonton battalion on^ his own initiative went ahead alone'and cut a lane through the enemy wire, a distance of 30 yards, under a terrific shell and machine gun fire. As the task was completed, he was severely wounded in the leg, but finished it, enabling our attack to go forward and storm-an objective. Vancouver Man's Deed Finally, here is the story ot a major from 'Vancouver, who commanded a Scottish-Canadian battalion, who gave up his chance of life that his men might live. This too was on Oct. 1, at Cuvlllers, where, after skillfully leading in the attack through the darkness until all the objectives were taken, he traversed the entire line, exposing himself fearlessly - and reorganizing the battalion, which had lost severely and constructing both front and outpost positions In preparation for the pending enemy counterattack. This developed in great force on the battalion's left while he was in outpost. He directed the fire ot two Lewis guns until all the 'ammunition was exhausted. Seeing the-flank was In danger of being enveloped by masses of the enemy, he ordered the withdrawal of the outpost line, himself remaining until all the men were out of the outpost. While Tetlring to the main line. of resistahoe he was severely wounded; but refused' to allow his men to' stay- by 'him,- as the enemy was rapidly nurroundlng tha spot where I�e lay.
