INHALED GAS FUMES Medicine Hat, Alta,, Feb. 5.--0iie unmarried I'oroiguer is dead, and three others dying, as a result ot Inhaling gas fumes. Caiiipiug out ill the open, with the mercury forty de.sirees be'low zero may not be the pleasantest occupation on earth, but in some cases it is worth the effort .and trouble and exposiire. Tomorrow morning, the s.^w. H ot .section Tp. S, R. 22, is open for |il-ing at the land office. This laud i& just acio.SB the river, on the edge o! the Blood Reserve, and'naturally is very valuable. But It is subject to clause "A" of the preemption regulations, which provides that homesteaders in the vicinity who are eligible to ti'le, may have the first chance at the land tor a pre-emption. They are given fifteen days to file their entry, and after that it is open to any one who may be eligible, regardless of where they come from. Somebody took the trouble to find out how many homesteaders came, under this regulation. The result of his investigations led lo the eoncluslpn that there were only two men who could come under the tlttoeii-da.vs' clause. One of these, it Is said, is dead, and the other has sold out Hud moved away. - With these deductions under hU hat, the wily one determined to have that choice bit ot Southern .\lberla as his very tfwu. To this end he hired three men to. hold down first place on the land-offlc'e steps. Alex. McLean is the head holder-down, and in spite of every ruse to find out the name o! the man who engaged him, .McLean remained mute. Two men take shifts of eight liours each, the other supplies the grub. Their camp outfit Is not very large, but it is comfortable and warm. The men have been on the job since Saturday, and will remain until February lil. when the last chance of the two eliglbles e.xplrea,^ The tent Is heated by a small coal oil stove, and the men say that they did not feel the cold last night at all. The seeker after the land, according^ to his assistants, is confident ot win- � ning out. He knows good land wheir he sees it, and a $3500 homestead looks good to him. It it didn't he couldn't afford three men to hold 'his place. If there had been more who knew about the opening of the �'and for filing, no doubt there woiiid h�ve been a miniature rush, but as yet is tU* only wise guy. i-i'�-.v!5vl,l' 0 92 44 ;
