McAllister returned from the meeting of the Presbyterian Alberta Synod on Saturday, and Mr. McAllister has been confined to his bed since with a very severe cold, but is now improving. Hallowe'en night was observed in the usual manner by the young "bloods" in Penhold. "Fun is fun, and tricks are tricks," but when such public buildings as school and Memorial Hall are molested with no option for "Treat or Trick," we can not see where either fun or trick is enjoyed by the participants. A most enjoyable Hallowe'en party was given by Mrs.

N. Stewart to Irene and Jack, with about a dozen schoolmates present, on Friday evening. Miss Edith Haise is visiting her relatives, Mr. and Mrs. Coffey, of Little Red Deer, at present.

J. Annear moved his family to Red Deer the first of the week, while Mrs. Annear, who has been in such poor health for some time, is going to winter at the Coast with the hope of the climate proving beneficial. The new furnace was installed at the school, and so far proves quite satisfactory. The Board, at its last meeting on Monday night, moved for the purchase of new blackboards for both rooms.

Penhold friends of the Elliot family of Red Deer sympathize with them in the death of Mr. Elliot at Calgary on Wednesday. Mr. and Mrs. Eldon McKenzie spent the as visitors with Mr.

Domoney's nephew arrived here Monday on a visit from the Coast. Mr. Frost and son, of Vulcan, were up to view the Co-operative Store last week with the object of seeing the possibilities of the district. Mrs. England and daughter are holidaying at Mirror over Thanksgiving.

A very successful bazaar, considering the very severe weather and bad roads, was held by the Women's Institute on Wednesday, the proceeds amounting to over $40. On account of the cold day, there were only three babies out, but the competition was keen nevertheless, as all babies were so nearly perfect. Nurse Malcolm, now with Drs. Parsons and MacKenzie, of Red Deer, kindly acted as judge. The prize-winners were: Baby Tweeton, first, and Baby Hoyle, second, and each was presented with a lovely baby dress.

The lucky winner of the tablecentre and buffet runner was Miss Margaret McCulloch, with the name "Julia" as her choice. The following -winners were successful in obtaining the $5 set aside for work not exhibited at any fair this fall: Map of Alberta--George Biswanger, James Walker, Agnes Wells.

F. A. ELKS BOXING EVENTS The boxing events at the Rex Theatre on Thursday night last under the auspices of the Elks made up a good programme, though the bad weather and bad roads detracted materially from the attendance. In the main bout between Whiteside, Penhold, 168 pounds, and "Bud" Taylor, Edmonton, 185 pounds, Whiteside was never in danger, his better condition, quickness, and experience being too much for his weightier, slower, and less skilled opponent. Taylor took his manfully and in the ninth round was quite exhausted, throwing up the sponge.

He is well built with a long reach and with more experience and better training, he will make quite a hitter. The preliminaries brought out some good boxing, Stanley and Alfred Dancocks opening out with some clever hitting: Geo. Dancocks getting the decision on points over Chummy Moore, Ridgewood; and Murray McKinnon Spider Griffith, Penhold, going to a draw. All the work was clean and in temper. Rex Creelman refereed.

Fred good, Lund contributed a step dance, and the Rex Theatre a couple of reels of lively comedy to the programme. POPLAR RIDGE The pie social held in the schoolhouse on Hallowe'en night proved a most enjoyable evening for those who attended, but the attendance was very small, therefore it was not a success financially, only $6.40 being realized. These who stayed at home certainly missed lots of fun, and- Miss Soderman is to be heartily congratulated on the evening's programme. A vote of thanks was passed to her at the close of the evening. Don't forget the ten cent tea.

sale of home-cooking, to be held in the basement of the Baptist church by the church in this district on Saturday afternoon (to-morrow). Everybody come and get a good cup of tea. Mr. Staples returned home on Saturday from his trip to B.C. The U.F.W.A.
