As the entire population of the town was streaming to the scene of the fire the bandit rode toward the bank. He leisurely tied his horse and en- tered the bank, where A. J." Breda was in charge alone. Levelling two guns at the cashier he commanded him to throw up his hands. Mr. Bre- da, however, dodged and made a dash for the door, the outlaw firing at'Tiim as he ran and just missing the bank- er's head. The crowd by this time, was at- tracted by the shooting to the bank, and the desperado, standing- off the people with his six-shooters, reached Ms: horse and at a gallop .'fled down the'street. Turning qouckly toward the hills over a cement crossing the animal slipped and fell, throwing the robber heavily to.the ground, Tender- ing him unconscious. He was remov- ed to the jail.

Stevens, provincial live stock commissioner, and F. M. Morgan, stock inspector of the Dominion ani- mals branch of the department of agriculture, had a meeting with a number of South Alberta sheepmen yesterday and discussed the matter of extending the limits of the sheep range. The sheep district is at pres- ent bounded by the Belly River on the north and west and the Interna- tional boundary on the south. The iheepmen want to be allowed to range sheep on the recently created Rocky Mountain forest reserve, ex- tending from the foot-hills to the sum- mit of the Rockies. They maintain that sheep, or stock of any kind, can do no harm to" the reserve, and by eating off the grass and undergrowth, greatly assist in the work of keeping down forest fires. In the wiate'- months they could bring their band down out of the mountains and. few them on the farmers' straw piles. Messrs. Stevens and Morgan wil take the matter up with the depart ment at Ottawa. The meeting yes terday was held in the parlors of the Dallas Hotel.
