Kroning, former- ly sergeant of the city police of Leth- bridge, and last week appointed to the position of chief of the fire de- partment in the southern city. Chief Kroning is spending a few days in Edmonton looking over the fire de- partment, with which he is highly pleased. He comes to Edmonton largely on the recommendation of Chairman Geo. M. Hatch, of the fire committee of the Lethbridge Coun- cil, who paid a visit Edmonton at the time of the Edmonton conven- tion' of Alberta municipalities. In his letter of introduction to Chief Davidson, Mr. Hatch says that he has recently made an extensive trip visiting fire departments in Western Piano Tuning w. H.

The meeting between the two was cordial, not say affectionate A friendly face In New York to Richard was like a water hole in the desert- To the earl he was as welcome as a "ft" pun note when I'm strapped, by Lord suggested a spin tin his mator, and Richard, who had but leisure on his hands and was glad of any break in the dull mo cotony, accepted with alacrity. The motor was a four cylinder Layton, with a vicious back fire and a hoarse, wet cough, which would have warned an expert to look after his igniter and relieve the oil vent. The auto car was rented, and, besides, machinery was a detail to be looked after in'the garage; therefore the driver hiccoughed up Riv- erside drive with a charming disregard for signs and omens. The Englishman talked, and the Tex- an listened, though he adroitly kept the conversation in a social vein on the chance of finding some opening, for an attack on Irvington. In this he was not disappointed- The earl bad se- cured letters of Introduction to Jacob Renwyck, but on calling at the Broad offices had found the-gentleman absent. He left his letters, together with a note of regret, and had prompt- ly received a cordial Invitation to join a small house party in the home of the Renwycks on the Hudson. He had accepted and intended to go there on the following day, where his valet would join liim, bringing his luggage from Washington. Richard's heart rose and rejoiced. Hci-s "sras a possible chance to 'meet Hiss Renwyck, yet he must proceed with caution. be said thoughtfully. "Seems to me I've beard that name.

"It's a fair game, isn't itr "No, it snapped the Texan, falling into? the vernacular of the plains. "It's a dingy deal with a cold deck.

"Birthright, mess of pottage and a pig in a poke." suggested Richard rather warmly. "But what of you? gicHv SCOtt, Djau. JOu'Vc Sever teen ber!

I've even known it to con- done a Here the conversation stopped, sud- denly. The machine had done the trotting beside the wheeL The earl drawled something about It being "most extrawd'n'ry" and began to manipulate the various levers, but without results. Clearly he was un- familiar with the vagaries of this par- ticular brand of motor. He descended from the car and turned his engine over, being rewarded by a clattering roar which caused him to leap back 1 into bis seat again. He released his brake and Inadvertently threw, his weight upon the speed controller. Th machine arose and rejoiced as a strong man going to battle. As Mr. Richard Williams afterward described it, ithe thing first buckec and then bolted for nowhere in partic ular. It attended to the yellow" dog first then ate up the farmer's wagon, turned over on Its back and kicked up its he'els, hollering like a calf under the branding iron. The graphic historian found himself sailing gracefully over a barbed wire fence until he alighted in a soft field where he plowed up considerable earth, but sustained no serious Injury, The Earl of Croyland had fared worse. In his headlong plunge he had struck a fence post wrenching one leg badly and fracturing his right collar bone. The irate farmer arose from the dust with a bleeding nose and Immediately put in a claim for damages, not only for his wagon and his valuable dog, but for losa of-time and the" greater portion of his costume. Nothing seemed to have happened, to bis vocab- ulary, it was noticed, Richard crawled under the barbed wire fence back to the road and turn- ed his attention to his injured friend- In the meantime a correctly attired young woman driving a Panhard stopped to view the general wreck, while a road patrolman galloped up and took bustling charge of every one: "What's the gentleman's name and he demanded of Richard, who was in the act the Eng- lishman's head. The Texan was about to answer truthfully when the earl. opened bis eyes and drawled out languidly, but iu a sufficiently clear voice: name Is Richard Williams of San Antonio St. I pay all' damages. This gentleman bas one of ray cards In his pocket" The earl then closed his eyes delib- erately, as though the matter were en- tirely disposed to shut out Richard's surprised and reproachful glance. The real Richard Williams of San Antonio, Tex., was thunderstruck at 'this display of nerve, but bis vigorous protest was checked by an elaborate wink from the sufferer. Ac- cordingly be banded the-officer one of his own cards and stood forth ready and eager to answer all questions. "What Is your asked the pa- trolman, notebook In hand.
