The police wen- at once notified, ami with Coroner Connor, of PInchci Creek, went out as uulekly as bio to investigate. On examination, papers were found in the man's .pockets, which proved his identity to b0 that of Robert Ash- bridge, of Carlisle, Cumberland coun- ty, Knghiml, He came to Ontario ab- out two years ngo. It was quite- evident by tho condi- tion of his that 1m had been trying to wade across ilie river, tmd being a stranger in the country, was evidently mistaken in his estimate of the depth oE the water by reason.of its clearness. Getting into deep wa- ter in this way, it is supposed he lost his balance, and was swept away by tho swift rushing waters of the South, The young man Jiad evidently i been drowned some time ago, us the body was badly decomposed, so much so, In fact, that it was impossible to move it any -distance. Deceased was apparently a young man of good chai actcr, as ho had in his possessio: numerous recommendations from rtil ferent places where he Imd workei in England. It is known that his me the i- is living in England at the acl dress given. The body was interrei within a few feet of where it wai found. The death took place today of Pet er Birtles, an. old-timer of the Pinchei Creek'district, and one of our mos' highly respected citizens. Mr. Birtles had been very ill for many mouths with heart disease, and his demise was scarcely unexpected by his fani- iiy and friends; Like many other old timers in this part of tho country, de ceased was at one time connected with the Mounted Police force. .After retiring from the force, he located permanently in 'Piiicuer Creek. He was engaged in the lumber business for some time, disposing of his yard! some months ago'to the South Alber- ta Hay -Since then he has lived retired. A 'wife and one son survive him; J..C.

Want Telephone Farmers living in the Sumnierview and Twin Eutte districts are anxiously waiting for the advent of tho tele- phone into these localities.

In'the case of Twin Butte at least, the petition bag been .the hands of the proper authorities for something like three years. Such tardiness as that is An inspector recently spent a couple of days in the districts referred to, nothing ever came of his visit. These friendly little calls' by the inspectors are becoming an anual event, tho farmers claim, hut they accomplish nothing.
