Patriotic * Concert.

Concert Monday, Sept. 21
If contributions of men and
money are au indication of loyalty
to the empire, then we do not
take second place to any town its
size in the "Dominions beyond
the seas," for this city has already sent its share of men and
money. But the loyal Rebeccas
realize that more can be done and
have decided to give a. patriotic
concert in the Oddfellows Hall
next Monday night. The admission is only SO cen*s and the proceeds will be sent to the Canadian
Patriotic Fund. It is not a matter of charity, but plain duty and
everybody will attend to swell
the funds for the relief of families whose bread winners are
fighting for the honor and defence of the Empire. It is' your
patriotic duty to attend this concert.
Apart from it being our duty
to attend, there will be a fine time.
Cards will be played, a good program rendered, refreshments
and probably dancing.

in darning socks and lugging a

Auto Fatality.
On Monday night about a mile
from Bridesville occurred a sad
accident which resulted in the
death of Mrs. Alex. McKenzie, of
Phoenix. Allan F. Eddy, of
Bridesville, took Mr. and Mrs.-
McKenzie, Mr. and Mrs. Brooks,
and Mrs. E. A. Black, of Phoenix
a ride in his auto from Bridesville
to Molson and on their return
trip had trouble with the lights,
the batteries being weak. The
night was dark and rainy, and
quite suddenly the lights went
out. Mr. Eddy grabbed the lever
to stop the car but in that moment the car went over the bank.
All the occupants were thrown
ciear of the car except Mrs. McKenzie and Mr. Eddy who were
sitting on the ��� front seat, Mr.
Eddy was pinned under the front
door and remained there about an
hour before they managed to pull
him out. He was unhurt. Mrs.
McKenzie was caught under the
back of the front seat and} she
was heard to ask if her husband
was hurt. That was the last she
said. The car then seemed to
settle down and about an hour
later when she was pulled out it
was found that her head was
doubled on her chest, Death was
due to suffocation. On Tuesday
Coroner Black, of Greenwood,
held an enquiry when the above
was brought out in evidence. The
Body was brought to the undertaking parlors at Greenwood.
Mrs. McKenzie is the daughter
of Wm. Clark, who resides about
a mile above Bridesville, and was
40 year of age. The funeral arrangements will be made upon
] arrival of her father who is expected here this (Wednesday)
j morning.
