Mr. Falconer, Government weed inspector, passed through here lately on his way to Winnipegosis.
On, where, oh, where is the Winnipegosis football team that claims to have won so comfortably on the 24th. It was a close shave. The latest report is that they are waiting for a supply of air pumps as the farmer boys have the wind.
