Tuber Jan. 5--The heretofore peaceful town of Taber has devel- oped into a fighting one. During '.he week not less than four mixnps lave occured. The lirst one was it the McPhee coal mine between Miner Lewis, heavy, and Johnnie' Russel, a Taber boy, lightweight. Johnnie came out. best. The next iciap was at the Taber hotel be- ,ween a big German and a little Welshman. A sledge-hammer blow over the right eye floored the big hap. The third battle was fought at the schoolhoiisc between John Fa lion, heavy weight, and Roy Lee. lightweight. Again the fighter man won. The hottest encounter of all was between Andie Lisonbee, barber, and Alex. Lyon, merchant. The trouble arose over some lumber. The barber attacked his man in his den. The merchant fell backward over a chair, when the barber immediately planted him- self upon the fallen man's stomach and rained a shower of blows upon his face and head. In this case the barber was the lightweight, and in an astonishingly short time suc- ceeded in building a mansard roof on the merchant's head, and ex- panding his countenance to an alarming degree, for soon after the poor merchant, could hardly be recognized by his nearest and dear- est friends. Next day His Majesty's court sat in the big room at the lotel. where the case was discussed jro and con. The result was yonng Lisonbee was assessed for iis alleged improvements on the merchant's face. The court and a jrace of policemen came down from Lethbridge to investigate the several differences, but this was the only one that proved serious.
