Very little faith-was put In Ihe story at thai time, ibiit he men- tioned it In -a casual way-to Inspector Harker at Medicine Hat.- When In- spector Parker told Sergeant Ashe on a recent trip to Medicine Hat he at once connected the story with the mysterious disappearance of Thomas, and from that time he has worked faithfully, and with the utmost skill lo solve the mystery. Everything was done i'n the most secret manner, and when on lion-day last when the particulars were made known Whit- ford was in the cells 'on suspicion, and all the imporlant witnesses were on Hand. It was a strange unravelling of a strange mystery, but if.the evi- dence submitted by the witnesses may he relied upon, Mrs. Thomas sees the fulfillment of her prediction that "God will not let you go very far.
