AXE, SHAfiP AS OF yORE, FALLS ON PIE6AN AND BLOOD AGENTS R. B. Bennett's Recent Visit to Macleocl Results in Trail of Heads of Former Indian Department Officials-Sheriff Wanted Change of Job (Special to the Herald) ; Macleod, April 28.-Since the viBit 'of the Bonfire man to " Macleod, at which time ihe met the few faithful office seekers, and all they asked for was promised. The Indian agent and clerk at the PJegan Reserve have received notice that their services will not be required after May lat, 1913. Theec men are among the oldest in tho Indian department service and have always been faithful to the department, and are now told to go as Bomo one else wants their jobs. If Wie department officials carry out their duty for their own Interests and that of the agency,' they will appoint C. Clark, wlio has been true to the Conservatives in all these years and a man who knows the work pf this agency well, understands tlie Indiana, and would fill the position in every detail. Agent Hyde at the Blood Reserve has in his possession a neat little letter, asking him to hand over to hia successor on May Ist all that belongs to the Indian department, his succej-sor, it is understood, to be the shwIK at Macleod, as he asks for a change, and hence this move. Other official.^ on this Resei've who are known as Libernls will not receive any further jgovernment pay, as there are so many waiting to take their' places and receive the- pay cheques. Other positions have been promised to all who voted and worked for Bob, as soon as Premier Michener took over the roina oC power, which they realize now iii a very long way off. Trusty Escapes Sunday morning one of the trusties at the Barrwcks was doing the work assigned him, and noticing no guard in sight, quickly changed his clothes for some ofiers nearby in the house where he was working, and took a walk. Up to the time of writing he had not returned. Monday mornilng the fire boys had a rem at 7 o'clock to an old building on the bank of the river, occupied by some foreigners as a dwelling. Not much damage was done by fire, but some of the inmates were alarmed when tbe water fell on tliem enough to v/ot thera. Mayor Stedman is busy looking over the estimates for the year, and expects to have a large amount of work under way in a very short time. Finances do not alarm the mp.yor. He is i\n oytlmlat of a very good kind, ivad sees ahead the silver lining of She durk cloud. BuUiliug permits are being issued every day, with prospects for a great-*r number of new buildings for this than in any previous year. Seeding is well on, practically 75 per cent, being done. The fine weather lias aided much, and May 1st will have little of the large acreage to be Seeded. Macleod Creamery began operations last week, with prospects for a good season. Cardston, Alta., April 21.-With the passing of Crop-^Barod AVolI, one o� the last of the old-time Indians is gone. The deceased Indian was chief of the'Blood band, whoso reserve is one of the largest m Canada. WoH was the head of some 1200 Indians, treaty gave the land to the Indians as long as water ran and grass grew, and from this position he could not be moved, j It is said that one of the last things Crop-Eared Wolf did before his death was to call his minor chiefs and people together and make them Ellas Pennington, a steeplejack, was killed by falling nearly 160 feet from a hoist cradle near the top of a chimney stack which is ibeing built for a.^teel works extension at Port Talbot, Glamorgan. and nothing of.iraiiortance was done promise that they would never sell without his advice and sanction, Pie, their laud to the white man. Their was steirn with his people, but kind tract is one of tho^ most fertile in with the white man so long as noth- i the whole province of Alberta and ing was said or done to interfere would he valuable as a tract for col with the Indian or his rights. He onization purposes.' was a most careful guardian of In-j TPorori m^it . dian rights. Some six years ago an ^ P'^P"^ agitation was raised among the In- ?�1hf chief, nt H.'f "'^"^ ^Siven dians to sell th., portion of their r Cardstou in Southern Alberta.

At the time Charcoal was at large, Crop-Eared Wolf was one of the party constantly on the watch lor his capture. It was through his help that Jas. Wilson, now registrar of brands at Medicine Hat, then Indian agent at Macleod, was able to 'finally make the capture that brought the murderer to the gallows. � The old chief was, of course, a brave. On more than one occasion he hos shown the writer the scars of many a severe test. His breast is covered from the armpits to his very throat with thong, marks, but never in one of the ordeals did he fliiloh or sho\y anything but bravery^ that would one day elect him chief of his Indian band. Crop-Eared Wolf had rather a greater sense of the fitness of things than is usually found in an Indian. It is Said that on one occasion a missionary from one of the stations near the reserve took, an interpreter with hitn and called on the old chief for the purpose-ot taking his picture. Wolf was very indignant. He explained through the interpreter that' > it would have been all right if he had asked the camera man to visit him for tlie purpose set forth, but it. was a violation of good taste for him to oome unsolicited. Crop had an aversion to having his face snapped and the photographer .had to go home without gaining the end he came for. It might surprise most people to know that Crop-Eared Wolf 'had a liouse as well furnished as thf aver-ago home in most towns or cities. Carpets covered the floors. The wigwam with its open'fire was replaced with the kitchen .with its modern range. Instead of sleeping on a blanket on tho ground, this Indian and his squaws had their comfortable mattre,s3 and iron-bedstead. Lamps lit tho house, blinds covered, the windows, paint kept the exterior from becoming weather-beaten, cooking utensils hung" in their proper places, and a table was set to which the Indian agent, farm instructor or any one else might Bit up. While Crop-Eared Wolf was averse to selling any part of the ' Indian lands, he was not'in.favor of allowing the whole to fie idle. When the Indian Department, under R. N. Wilson, inaugurated a plan by which the. Indians would, work a portion ol the land the old chief was one of the first to fall heartily in lino and. work for the accomplishment of' the. .purr, po?D.

In later years he has worked with the agent, Mr. Hyde, in preventing the old sun-dancp, a I^agan festival in which tlie Bloods would be sporting themselves now if per-mi.ssion were granted. Crop-Eared Wolf became an adherent of the Roman Catholic faith and in his latter days was ministered to by Father Bauax, of the Stand-Ofi Mission. At his funeral a band of Indian boys consisting of 15 instruments, played 'Nearer My God to Thee." The direct cause of death was cancer. It is rather amusing that the Indians should call it lump jaw, for, the reason that it is on thr jaw about the place a cow throws out a lump when infected with lump-jaw. CropjBared Wolf M'as a patient sufferer, and while he suffered much pain during the last several months, his end was peaceful, and unlike so many of his predecessors in the chief office of the Indian hand, he has not gone to the happy hunting grounds, but to the abode of his Father in heaven. The funeral was attended by all the Indian Department staff on the reserve as well as by many friends of the old chief from Macleod and otheriiplaces. ^lis burial was at Stand-Off in the cemetery of the Roman Catholic church' there.

Dublin, April 29. - "Compulsory tillage will be one of the questions in the near future in Ireland. In ino.st foreign countries those who are entrusted with tUc care of the land are compelled to till a certain portion of it. But, in Ireland, although there have been several land acts, no such condition of proprietor-.sliip ha.s yet been introduced. The result is that in every locality large farmers, grazier.s and store-keepers have purchased large tracts of laud and are conserving them as grazing farms and as a consequence, are employing only, one herd, where twenty or thirty farm laborers could be profitably employed. This is nothing more or loss than perpetuating graz-iordom in its worst form and those who live by the land, as well as those who have no direct interest in it, .are going to set steadily to work to alter this state of things directly home rule is given to Ireland." Says James Haverty, of Galway, a prominent agitator of this topic ; "At the present time we have to import such classes of agricultural produce as hay, straw, oats and meat, while our land is allowed to grow furze and moss for want of being acquainted with the plow. There is also another very important thing to be considered in connection with this subject of compulsory tillage. The chief topic for discussion tor Irishmen at present is to change our system of exporting store cattle and substitute a dead meat trade. . Does anyone ever consider where we are going to get our fodder from to fatten our cattle unless wc compel thpse who have land to cultivate it. "If we must import our fodder, it would not pay to fatten pur cattle, and all our talk about hriiiging about a change in our cattle trade is useless unless we first take up -the question of compulsory tillage. An Irish farmer with ten . or twenty acres should till one acre out of four. Farms of from 26 to 50 acres shquld till one acre in five and so on, in proportion to.the size of the farm." Big Fight in British Courts Over Estate Sir John Scott Absohttely CUAfE 'A-ND S'A'NUaitN A MOlSTTftKAIi' London, April 28.-Interest has been Revived in the disposal of the estate of the late Sir John Murray Scott to Lady Sackville and is renewed because of a suit over the probate and adverse, decision,of the high court of justice. When Sir Johii died, his will left his estate, amounting to $5,000,000 and his splendid art collection, to Lady Sackville. Shortly after his death a reward of $50,000 Was offered for the production of an alleged codicil to the will in which the bulk of the, estate was bequeathed to Sir John's next of kin and Lady' Sack-vllle's bequest was reduced to the income from a legacy of $150,000. The reward, was offered by D. M. Scott, a brother of Sir' John.  At yesterday's hearing Jesse Short, a former valet of Sir John, was examined. He told of a mysterious envelope which his employer always carried 'with hiin when he was travelling abroad and kept locked up while ho was at home. Short said he understood that th;s envelope i contained the codicil referred to. He mentioned an automobile trip ^yhich Sir John and Lady SjickviUe took in January, 1912, prior to which the envelope disappeared. It is tliought to have been found by one of Sir John's relatives alter his death. Tho judge ordered the evidence placed on record, but did not proceed . with the hearing of the case. CONSERVATIVE PAPER'S SESSION PREDICTION Ottawa, April 28.-The Ottawa Evening Joutnal says: ^'It Is. expected- that the session will (be QVSir by May 2't. The government is anxious to expedite matters, and in order to get through by that time, morning a?S8ion& will be resorted to. , , "There is talk of a special sesiaioii In Septenabfer:. to deal with' several matters, which, In all probability will hj^ve to be left oyer, but the government has not yet taken the matter Into consideration." ' Purity in food, lower cost of living- these are the demands of the day. Pure food is health, and health is economy itself. We cannot have health without healthful food. The most healthful foods are the quickly-raised flour foods - biscuit, cake, muffins, crusts and other pastry, when perfectly made from wholesome ingredients. Dr. PRICE'S baking powder makes these foods in specially attractive, appetizing and wholesome form, and for both economic and hygienic reasons, such food should be more largely substituted for meat in the daily diet. But bear in mind that alum, or unwholesome baking powder, can never make pure, wholesome food. sweet valli:y Sweet Valley, April 25.-Everybody's doing it in Sweet Valley. Doing what ?

The Full Value of Coal , You will never derive the full value of the money you pay for coal unless your stove is con-trolled by the Gurney Economizer. It actually saves! ton of coal in every 6 you would ordinarily burn in other ranges. It also assures a thorough, steady, .even* heat throughout the entire stove. There is no waste heat going' up the chimney. The Economizer makes sure that the purpose for which fuel is being burnt is carried out. / The Gurney Economizer is a simple device that; requires just a light pressure on the lever to result in a consistently heated oven-the secret of successful baking. No sane person can afford to ignore this saving in coal bills, so make sure that your new range has an Economizer. The Gurney-Oxford is equipped with other exclusive devices, the Divided Flue, the New Special grate, and the Broiler attachment. It also is made with a perfectly smooth polished top which forever requires no black lead. There are; no crevices where dirt may lodge --above all itis sanitary. No intelligent housekeeper to-day can afford to ignore the benefits which science has brought to ^ her through the Gurney-Oxford. C. W. GRAY 310-5th ShS. Phone 761 ;
