CONYBEARE BLOCK LETHBRIDGE, ALTA. (Bpfcdu! to the MernM) Raymond, Sept. Romney, of the Beneficial Life Insurance com- pany, of Salt Lake City, and brother to President T. 0. Romney, of' ttie j Knight Academy, visiting in the I south for a week. His trip to Alberta IB more of u business mission than anything else, his comnany having a large business in this territory. They are not, however, soliciting new buni- ness, the federal government having passed prohibitive legislation against foreign companies doing business in the Dominion. Accordingly, the Bene- ficial Lifo withdrew from the Cana- dian field. Mr. Romney is visiting Canada for the first time, and he is amazed at tbn wonderful crops which he IB seeing. He pronounces them the best he baa seen this year and he is an extensive traveller. Raymond boys of the 113th High' landers, after a brief visit home, are hurrying back to Sarcee1 Camp in an- swer to the call precipitating.an early departure .overseas. Raymond has I about twenty men in the Kilties, and the possibility of a movement east has created quite a flurry of excitement. Applications made by members of the j 175th battalion residing here for har- vest, have been turned down. The lo- cal boys in. this battalion must conse- ciuontly report at the expiration of their month's leave. This is taken to mean that tho Medicine Hat battalion will not be on Alberta soil very much I longer. There are about fourteen Ray- thond men in the lY5th. That there is no race suicide in Ray- mond was evidenced yesterday at the sacrament meeting in the first ward when six babies were brought before the congregation to receive blessings and names. This does not include the children blessed in the seco'tid :yrarfl services. These ceremonies take place one Sunday in every month in the church, and when it is un- derstood- that the population Ray- mond-is just over 1200 souls, it rails't be admitted that Raymond is _ contri- buting its share to.

I'HINC too years 01 his Covenior-Uonoraisnip, ilotbtr.s lias I given His Royal Highness the Duke of Connaugllt. more pleasure thjn tbe terumony which made Ulin Chlet uf the Stony ludliins. This cereaiopy took place at Banlf, ivhere the Uuke and Duchoss, tosethor with Princess Patricia, spent a delightful holiday tuls Summer. The Stony Indiauu, who were once a distinctly warlike tribe, and some of whose exploits form tho background to Ralph Connor's "Sun Dane.) Patrol." are now good citizens au'd hold Annual Sports Day at tho great tourist resort In July. The pictttresijuo garb ot a Stony Indian Chiet admirably suits the tine figure and strong profile of the Duke. Princess Patricia found particular pleasure this Summer In riding her Mounted Police pony "Dandy" along the mountain trails which radiate from Banff through the passes and over the precipitous aides the sur- rounding mountains. The Duke himself spent much of his time In (Ish- inc for mountain, cut-throat and devil trout, but the largest fish of the season was caught by Miss Yorke, lady In waiting to the Duchess ot Connaught, who landed a monster ot no less than nine pounds. The sulphur water swimming pool attached to the C.P.R. hotel was a source of great delight (o the Royal party, and many amusing snapshots not for publication, are being taken back to England. The many visits of tho Con. naughts to Banff have resulted In this becoming the clilef social cen- tre of the West during lie summer months. The Americans who have the money .to travel have deserted their own National Parks so that they could be nearer to a real Duke.
