AUh.. Got. 22.-The good a short holiday as the school is closed at Calgary on account of the popular epidemic. Last evening we experienced our real frost, and it was not until this tliuo that our potato vines and sweet peas were frozen down. However, the weather is ideal for this time of the year. Horse Dealer Here Mr. T. Faeiistein recently purchased 21 head of horses which were shipped out this morning, tlie bulk of them having been secured from Messrs V. V. and Dan Chri.stle, from their farm at Twin Lakes. The horses wore two year olds and three year olds, and were fat and sound and in splendid condition, and it Is understood that a good price was paid for them. The shortage of houses to rent in towns people are somewhat wrought up In their feelings over the epidemic ! of influenza (hat hap swooped down | on the district. There are 15 houses; quarantined in Cardston, aiid some 20 J Cardston is felt rather keenly by those to 25 cases reported to the Medical � who would like' to "move in" for the Health Olliccr. It is pleasing to re-j winter for school and other reasons, port however, that perhaps only one It is not hard to see that some enter-of those cases appears to be danger-: prising individual will sooner or later �ous, compared with the large number, build a few terraces or flats iu town tliat there are, and it is hoped and I for renting purposee. expected that the disease will not j - jiiake !i very heavy inroad on the town here, and every reasonable precaution ' is being taken by ail parties, and all of' the doctor.s in toWn are very much :ilert. Richard A. Pilling who has l)een seriously ill Is reported very j.'iiicli improved. The Pitcher-Hardy water extension v/ill be completed in a couple of days, the trench having been several more water user ed to the already large list within the town. Local Hospital News In conversation with Miss Shorin, Superintendent of the Local Hospital, we find nine patients besides two babies are being cared tor. This says a great deal in favor of the speedy cstahiishmont of the hospital unit in Ibis district. From a financial standpoint alone, if these nine cases at ?2a,U0 a week were being cared tor People's Forum THE INFLUENZA EPIDEMIC Peter Lund has addressed the fol-T^'\nd'urns'''"''''"fc' '^^^^^ '� ^^"^ ^^"'^''l' ''^"'^ '^^^^ f,f w thfn n i and the Mayor of Calgary, FOR SALE CIIY PfiflPERTy BY TENDER j Pursuant to the judgment ami final I order for sale there is being offered elsewhere, this woiild amount to $225 \ for sale by tender, free aud clear of all a week, not to mention more than dou-' encumbrances, other than taxes for ble this amount wliich would undoubt-' the current year and subject, to the edly go for drugs and medical atten-' reservations and limitabions as appear lion, operations, etc. It is safe to esti-' in the original grant from the Crown mate that with the present number of | and in the duplicate Certificate of regarding the present epidemic: Dear Sir,-I am convinced that the propaganda now being spread broadcast over the land is more dangerous and demoralizing to the allied cause and freedom than all the activities of the central powers in Kurope. All agencies of publicity must change their present attitude to that of hope, courage, confidence and failh, and let us ask here who" first christened this so-called epidemic-� who first introduced it to our people who wore already in a life and death struggle with evil? From whence did this new enemy come? Where did the evil influenza originate? Who told the lie in the beginning? The heads of the allied governments must meet this new enemy and defeat its influence and propaKanda at once and .remove its evil inlluencu from the public mind, not in ihn name of any profession or creed. iMit in the name and on the authority of God. Many of our people are tilled with anguish and are highly susceptible. It is an epidemic of fear. .\s a man thinketh, so is he. Peter Lund.

Last Sunday was a very quiet day. Pew automobiles were seen on the sirnots or in the district, as there was no church, and people generally felt the need of .staying wiihhi their own premises on account of the possi-IMIity of spreading by contact, the mucli feared "Flu'." The only persons within town who seem to be thoroughly appreciating the epidemic and its necessary quarantine regulations, are the small school boys who are taking in their ftill quota of fresh air and sunshine, and looking with a certain degree of dread to the time when school will open again.
