Two 'tragedies. which had their beginning in Innis- fail and were in some way interwov- en one with the other, marred the Christmas joy of this season. One death, that of Constable son. of the R.N.W.M.P., which was j self-inflicted, happened some time about midnight, while the other death, that of Mr. Johnson, Penhold. which was not so closely associated with this city, occurred at Red Deer hos- pital later in the day. Constable Wilson came to this town a few months ago. He had been sta- tioned previously in Red Deer and had been reduced in rank for the same cause that led directly to his death. He was well liked here and apparently was a- very efficient officer but for the failing of drink. He had MASONIC LODGES APPLAUSE OF EUROPE WON Will Refuse Prince Of Invitation To South Africa been drinking during the week.
