Mr.. Carruthers was a member of

worker among the craft.
The funeral Is being held Saturday
afternoon. The lemafns will be forwarded to Ottawa, his old home, where
a sister resides.
Mr. Arthur Wilson, of this city, will
leave tomorrow for Lethbridge, to represent the local Order of Trainmen.
The following account Is taken from
today's Lethbridge Herald :
The Union Jack at the Battery barracks was at half mast this morning
for the nVst time, in respect to Bombardier Peter Carruthers, who died
early this morning, presumably of
heart failure. Mr. Carruthers was on
guard duty last night and at two
o'clock this morning was suddenly
taken 111. Lieut. Dr. Mewburn was
immediately called and then Dr.
Thompson, but to no avail, and In
twenty minutes death occurred.
The deceased was an old-timer ln
this country.   He came to Cranbrook
some 12 years ago, where he was lu
the employ of the C. P. R.     He waB
a member of the famous lacrosse team
of Cranbrook   and played ln   Leth-

resided with Mr. Win. Scott, 1215 4th
; Ave. s.   On January 4th he volunteer-
! ed, and since then has been with the
j 20th,battery. Proof of the appreciation
of his worth was shown some time
[ ago when promotion was offered him.
His modesty caused him to refuse the
stripes and it was not until April 1st
that he accepted the rank of Bombardier.
Bombardier Crotheers was born In
Ottawa in 1880. He Is survived by his
father, who lives there, and several
brothers and sisterB in this country,
among them being Mrs. Reynolds of
Granum. His father was notified this
morning. ^»
Naturally his sudden death was a
great blow to his comrades of the
20th Battery, among whom he was
very popular and greatly beloved.
Major Stewart, In an Interview this
morning spoke very highly of him,
saying that he was as good a soldier
as he was lacrosse player.
Funeral arrangements will not be
made until word is received from the
father of the deceased.
