Behnke of Pinoher Creek, who died in the General hospital Nov. 18th, heard Dr. Smyth, the coroner, read a report today from Charlton, the government analyist at Regina, conveying the startling information liat chloral hydrate, a deadly poison, had been found in considerable quantities in the stomach contents and urine of the dead man. The station master who put him on the train, and the boarding house proprietor, Beraatz, gave evidence but threw no light. This poison is commonly known as knock-out droijs. When Behnke reached the hospital he carried the same amoimt of money as when he left home, $1,300. Investigation adjourned for more information.

Chief Justice Meredith, of Toronto, is opposed to the bringing of small cases to the Supreme Court, contending that it is an oiftragous thing and almost a scandatto bring a suit involving $250 into high court, and spend over $400 in doing so. He says that the supreme court is not. intended for these little cases. At the last session of the supreme Couit lielct in Macleod, we heard the remark made that the time of the court was being taken up with frivolous cases which should never have been brought into court. We were in attendonce it the court a part of the time and could see ourselvi's there was much truth in the contention made. What Judge Harvey thought we cannot say but .judging from the bored expression on his face he also was of the siinie opinion as the general public-Macleod Advance. DR. P. W.

Mr. Williams, superintendent of the beet sugar factory at Raymond was a caller at the Herald palace yesterday. He says that the factory there has.practically closed down, only repair work now going on. The company has had a very successful season, everything considered. The fall frosts were more severe this year than for any year within the recollection of the "oldest inhabitant," and -^did a little damage to the beets. But, withal, the season juat eloped has been a very satisfactory one to the promoters of Southern Alberta's great industry. Over 18,000 tons of beets were handled, and these produced 4,630,000 pounds of sugar. Mr. Wiliiams has every confidence in the section down there and tlie prospects of the country in general. Social Function Madame Begin gave a very enjoyable euchre parly to a number of her young frifnds on Wednesday evening last, in lienor of her guest, Miss Gigot, of Nelson.

The dainty supjjer following was not tlie least delightfid feature of the evening. An excellent program of songs, instrumental music, etc., was then rendered, prolonging the merry-making into the small hours; the happy gathering finally dispersing about half past one.
