Hon. Diehard McBride, Dr. Young,

country, The Premier und his par
ty left on the "Plyer" Thursdny

receptions at ull points iu the Uppo
Maiuland.
Puree comedy makes one forgot the
weather, his troubles, and banishes
the blues like sunshine dispels the
mists. Rven the countenance of the
most confirmed misanthrope would
be constrained to relax Into a smile,
followed hy an outburst of laughter
if he could be prevailed upon to attend "Christopher Jr." which is the
opening bill at the Auditorium by
the Geo B. Howard Coinpuny next
Monday   night. Mr.   Howard  and
his company have been here before
and we know what an excellent com
pany it is, they will play here one
week, and tbe advance agent states
that the Company will give a change
of bill each night. This Oompany
has been strengthened since they
re here last and curry their own
scenery for their productions.
The Ceo B. Howard Company confidently hope to eclipse their previous
success here in our eity iu "Christopher Jr." and other high class com
edies. They will put on, in addition tu being eminently well suited
for presentation by this versatile
company uf players "Christ oplier
Jr." is just the right kind of a cum
cdy for a summer evening's enter
tainment. There is a clever plot to
lt, but it don't require any great
exertion of the brain to discover it.
There is an abundance of mirth
provoking material in it however,
and Mr. Howard and bis supporting
artists do not miss any chalice t
create laughter,
  . if the
hill was sinking a trille so the C, P.
It. asked Gunn & Sous to sink a
hole nearby to see if the foundations
were secure. This hole was sunk
about twenty-live feet when it was
found thut the pier was resting over
one of the old abandoned entries to
the Gait mines und thut it was only
partially filled with slack and other
debris. A week ago Thursday the
engineers ordered work to stop ut
the bole because of the gas that was
arising making it impossible for men
to work mure than half an hour at
a time, ami ordered a fun tu be
(joiistriicted to tuke out tbe foul air,
Little George Anderson and Willie
Neidig were playing around this afternoon when the former started to
climb down the timbers of the hole.
Nut hearing anything of him Willie
looked into the hole and saw his
companion lying on bis buck on a
timber fifteen feet below. He immediately ran to tell his mother wbo
gave tbe alarm. Some uf the employees of J. (iuiin ■& Sons were
working at tbe tup of the hill and
nediately came to the scene. W.
A. Campbell a well known carpenter
immediately went down into the hole
without waiting to get a rope. He
bad picked tbe boy up and was starting up with him when he was overcome and fell nver.
Two others, Rush and Thompson,
the deceased, immediately volunteered to go down for him. They got
the ropes attached to the boy and to
Campbell when they were overcome
and fell tu the bottom of the hole,
Campbell and the lad were hauled
up with the aid uf Engineer Blair,
Ripley and Rodman McDonuld who
went part way down to secure the
ropes. They got up again and
another man, P. Hodson volunteer
ed tu bring up the men at tbe hot
tain but collapsed before he reached
the bottom aud had tu be hauled up
gain. W. W. Cavris, who is Thomson's brother-in-law, volunteered tu
go down und with proper protection
managed to secure the bodies uf
Rush and Thumpsun which were
brought up. Bnth Hodson ami
Cavris were in a bud way but sunn
recovered,
As sunn as Rush and Thumpsun
were brought up, it was seen that
there wus small chance of life. Dr.
Mewburn was on the scene in a few
minutes nnd although every effort
was made tu bring them back they
were unavailing, It is the doctor's
opinion that they were dead before
being  brought up.
All the men were employees of J,
Gunn & Sons. Rush und Thompson
are both single. The former is an
Englishman from London und came
here with un extra gang from Toronto lost fall. Thumpsun came from
Nurth Dakota eight or ten weeks
ago. Bnth were guud workmen and
highly esteemed by their fellow
workmen.
Engineer Ripley was down to tbe
bottom of the hole on Priday aud
part way down on Saturday. At
these times, though the air was bad,
the gas was not particularly dun
gerotts, and it is strange thut the
gas should so suddenly become so
strong.
The little boy, Anderson, who is
about ton years old, will he all
right in a short time, but he had a
very narrow escape. Tbe men wim
escaped appear to have suffered very
little harm as a result of their
hemic efforts tn save others. Lethbridge Herald.

a distance, if t judge correctly of
about a mile. First we entered the
quadrangle of the Free Ohttrch Assembly Hull where stands, wc were
told tho hest statue of .lohn Knox.
High street wns at ono time, occupied hy the. aristocracy. Home of
the most historic buildings are here.
Monuments      of  distinguished  sons.
(irayfriar Church, where the solemn League and Oovenant was signed, and where there is a monument
of thu Coventors who sacrificed their
lives for civil and religious liberty.
Further un is the bouse where, .len
nie Dean was tried and condemned to
death. See Scott's "Heart of Midlothian." Here also is St. QUofl
Cathedral where Jennie (leddes threw
her stool it*t tho head of the functionary wim attempted to introduce
the litany in tho reign of tho Stew-
urts. The stool itself is preserved
in tho National Museum. In front
of St. (files is a monument without
uny inscription, but a cab-man kindly explained Ms character and the
figures cut ou It, Here also is the
"Heart" of Midlothian. The figure
of a heart laid in the pavement
marks the centre of Edinburgh.
Holyrood is not far away, but we
must visit, John Knox's house first.
Tlie old building is partly out on the
street., We uscended a narrow stair,
here we found n woman in charge.
The window lnnu which Knox used
lu preach looking up the streel, old
vuluuies, the thumbscrew nn Implc

the words of Knox before Mary.

TII COSIEST PLACE IN TOWN
Nowhere, unless artificial means are
used, is so low a temperature to be
found than in a large Hardware
Store. This is due to the quantity
of iron and steel goods kept in
stock, these resist the heat. Drop
in and feel for yourself and ask for
an "iced chiselette" with a | bolt
in the bottom.
