ENCOUNTERS AT TABER Fights the Order of the Week in New Town TABER TALK. (-"r, m ii H   U-i'"' ^-'1' y ) Last week a frail little mother. Mrs. Aiulrew Thompson, passed away.

Taber Jan. 5 -The heretofore peaceful town of Tal)er has devijl-oped into a fighting one. During the week not less than four mixii|)s have occnred. The first one was at the McPhee cojvl mine hetwet^i Miner Lewis, hea\-y, and Johnnie Russel, a Taber boy, liglitweiglit. Johnnie came out best. The ni'xt scinp was at the Taber hotel i)e-twtH'n a big German and a little Welshman. A sledge-hammer blow over the right eye flooretl the big chap. The third battle was fought at the schoolhouse between John Fallon, heavyweight, and Roy Lee, lightweight. Again the lighter 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 backwanl over a chair, when the barber immediately planted himself uiXJii the fallen man's stomach and rained a shower of blows uimn his face and head. In this case the barber was the lightweight, and in an astonishingly short time suo-ceedwl in building a mansaitl roof on the merchant's h( result was young Lisonbee was assessed .^ir).00 for his alleged improvements on tlie merchant's face. The court and a brace of policemen cam(> down from Lethbridge to investigate; the several dift'erences. but this was the only one that proved serious.
