Middle- these Spring Nights Udmontoii, April Arm- strong, or Fonborg, us he is called the vicinity of Chlfmutn, ivas captured early lust night by a Russian home- threo miles west of Chipman, and was taken into that town this morning by Const. Matiliail, of tho Mounted Police. Fonborg, when ho walked up to tho Russian's shuck, wan wounded in two places In tho arm and n tho body and was very weak from loss 'M blood and lack of food ami drenched from wadlnp, creeks. will lie takon to Fort Saskatchewan this afternoon and later hrousht to Edmonton hospital. U wna evidently Fonberg's intention to get to thto north country, but he wnt unable ta do so owing to the fierlonmiens of his wounds, one of which may prove fatal. When interviewed at Chtiiman the prisoner would not talk, but mumbled in articulate sentences, afterwards, however, ho Htralsluoned up and said, "I'll fret them .vol." In appearance ho IB a mild looking man and it L-I only when DIP maniao streak is upon he la danger- ous. A physician has been sent for from Lain out. Wounded and limping Fouberg fled through tho brush with tho Mounted Police in dill chaso after him and tho .finish of his freedom was expected, soon. Fonberg'a wound, which 'Im- peded bis progress and caused Ills un- doing was received just at dawn this morning. The guard set by the polico lay In wait all night at tho Some- stead shivering In the chilly hours without fire or light, ready for the re- turn of the maniac. Not a sign was noticed throughout the hours, but at tho break of day shots rang' out from an outhouse; to the east ot where Fonberg'a 'old shack lay. Five dhots lu all wore fired. To Johnny Lee of Toneld belongs tho. credit and 'honor -of. when ho omorBed from tho brush lu the half light and having fired tho first shot.; Not a sound was heard, but as tho fleeing, man tore oft Into the brush a decided limp was evident In the poor light and evidences of blood were found when tho light im- proved. As soon as there was snC- Bcient light to permit tho man hun- ters to set the tracks, a pursuit.was started In a generally northwester- ly direction. The general belief that Fonberg was lying within the brush a few hundred yards ot tho homestead and that It would hava been possible for ihim to have at any time yesterday to have picked of( a half dozen of hiB pursuers. nut on the market in graded lots, nor properly bagged. The Calgary Quotations now are "rom 7Bc to 05c per cwt., and the supply comes chiefly from the Okan- agan Valley. This supply is properly graded and sacked, and Southern .Al- )erta potatoes, which are .not graded, mva a poor chance in competition with the Okanagan product. The necessity of grading potatoes seems now to be very apparent. It will put our article on the. market prepared to compete with the beat, Then if there is an over supply.they can be sent to the starch factory at good profit. Sell Spuds Now The Associate Boards wish to ad- vise the farmers to dispose of any "spuds" they now have on hand, at almost any price, because large ship- ments from Idaho and Washington are coming in now. It is Hie :end of the season practically and new potatoes will be on the market before long When this occurs -the old "spuds' will be worth little or nothing. In. the state of Maine, one year, i an over suunly in potatoes forced all sections of the state to build starch factories, and It has been found -that potatoes bring uiore pro- it from the manufacture of starch than they1 do when feti to stock or consumed .as human" Tfood. The sur- Dlus of potatoes in Maine, whicic at Srst seemed, a blow to the farmers, nas turned out to be a boon to them, and potato 'raising is one of the most profitable industries in the state of Maine. Southern Alberta is Ideal ideal for the growing of potatoes, and it is not difficult to believe that in a very short time similar results will follow here. Lethhridge has been named by the Associate Boards ns only logical point for the erection of starch factory.
