Cut Off Water Connections An action of the town council which created considerable commotion was the cutting off of the water connect- ions; in the homes of many of the de- linquent water users. The policy of the-town is plain on this point, that the water counot remain past due. This must be paid up to date or" the water will be stopped. The council has been forced to inflict severe meas- ures as. some of the people have taken tho matter all too lightly. But this will not be. tolerated in the future. The dues must be paid up and that promptly or those in arrears must take the consequences. The council does nui wish to work any hardship on the citizens of the town, but they claim the town can only run .on a strictly business baais. From now on strict methods will in the municipal office, delinquency a reasonable time has expired. Temple Will be Built. At the in the sec- ond ward last Brim- Mi! of the Brigham Young University, was the principal speaker. Among other things he spoke of the temple which would be built in Canada. Prof, Brimhall said" tbe anti-tor it! of -the church meant what.- they said, and would go through with tbe project despite the remarks that had been made from various sources, that the temple would .never be completed. 1'orf. Brimhall ridiculed these fallacies a-nd made an earnest, appeal to tbe people for their undivided support ami moral encouragement to this, the mightiest work from .a religious stand- point that tbe Latter Day Saint's have witnessed in this great northern do- minion. Dr. Brimhall is an eloquent speaker, and bis .sermon wag indeed food Cor the soul. Threshers Busy Threshing operations are going on at full speed, and the stooU-covered fields 'are rapidly disappearing. It is a pleasant piece of news, too, for everyone breathes a sigh of relief when 'threshing is done, peop- le sit down by the fireside for the long winter happy in the 'thought of a successful and profitable seas- on. The crops are splendid, not one load of really bad wheat has been delivered. The average is very sat- isfactory, and the outlook for a brisk fall and winter trade is particularly encouraging. and Mrs. W. McTalt returned from the east last Sunday, after a long and somewhat tiring ride by rail over the C. P. R. They immediately took up their residence in their apart- ment-.? in tho Security building. Mr. and Mrs. Tait brought west with them presents amounting lo Will Budd, brother of flcorge H I3udd, and who is a visitor from Sail Lake City left on Tuesday for Leth bridge to visit the congress and position.

The Knight Sugar Company'expects to ship another consignment nf cattle this Saturday, the shipment to con- sist of about five hundred Lead prime beef steers. Raymond is one of tho foremost eattle shipping points in the, province, and this year will probably equal the shipments of form- er years, when some amazing figures were shown.

Letters inquiring about the famous wheat and asking for some of it have literally swamped tho victor- ious farmer. Among tho number who wrote asking for wheat Is J.-N. Grieve, Canadian agent, at Spokane, Wash., who wishes a bushel at any price. Mr. Grieve wants 'to know a number facts about the winning wheat, as it will be used for advertising pur- poses in connection with HID Domin- ion', government Immigration agency at Spokane.

TAIT RAYMOND ALBERTA VILL APPOINT THEATRE CENSOR Toronto, Out., Oct, was decid- d by the board of police commission- rs recently that the time had arrived 'hen the censorship of theatrical at- ractions should be taken out of the ands of the police department. A recommendation will be sent on the board of control, asking that ody to appoint -a qualified dramatic ensor, and that the police "department e relieved of the duties a pertaining the matter entirely. Staff Inspector Kennedy, iu charge the morality department, whose ork1 as theatrical censor has come hi such adverse criticism, now passes from that position to the oiilce in- spector detectives, ,aud his auccesa- sor, when named, will bo informed that the offerings at present at playhouses hnve been 'removed from his jurisdic- tion. It was acknowledged by the commis- sioners that a policeman was hardly the proper person to net in the capa-' city of a dramatic censor, and at the present time a committee of prominent business men are engaged in framing a series of condemnatory resolutions for submission to 'the mass meeting of citizens to be called shortly dealing with the lax manner in which this work has been performed during the past few years.
