Box 378 Office Royal Bank Building, c/o Aaqulth & Llnd��y Orlando Bjorklrlad, a Lothhridge boy, who, as an incorrigible, was taken in hand a year ago by the local children's protective officers, following petty thieveries in which tlie lad was mixed up, was picked up in Calgary a couple of days a.^o by the police after he had been wandering about tor ten weeks in that city, living in the open air, with no means of support other than refuse which lie could pick up at the rear of restaurants and hoteis. ffhe lad's mother lives in, Leth-ibridge, but his father has not been a resident of the city for some time. Probation Officer I.,amb will see Mrs. B]orkblad today, and it is likely arrangements will be made to have the boy sent home. Mr. Lamb says the youngster is one of the brightest boys he has ever kno'wn, but got travelling in the wrong kind of society, w,hich necessitated his being sent away from home in an effprt to reform him. The Calgary AlberUm tells the strange story of the boy's disappearance and precarious existence in Calgary as follows: With his clothes in tatters, his hair long and unkempt, his face pale as chalk, and trembling and shaking like a leaf from cold and exposure, Orlando BjorjWall. aged 14, wiho says he has slept in the heart of tlie city in the open air for ten weeks, was brought to police headquarters yesterday morning at .S o'clock by Patrolman Jlilier. Emaciated from hunger and naiurally small and stunted, the boy was a pitiful object, as he stood quaking before the police desk ;and told a tale lh?.t even shocked the men at headquarters, who are accustomed to see the worst phases of life every day in the round of their regular duties. "I ran away from a farm neai' Edmonton," said tho boy to Deakman Woodliouae. "I was sent there ten weeks ago by a charity society in Lethbridge. T walked all the way from Edmonton to Calgary ten weeks ago and since I came here I have net been inside a house. I have slept in lanes and have eaten at the rear of restaurants. I wa^jted to get back home to see my father nnd mother, but never got any farther than here. The work on tho farm was too hard and I ran away;" On Monday tho city police received word that a boy was sleeping under a big plaltorni at the roar of the DunlO)) 'Tire agency, 8tli avenue West, and DeLectivps Ritchie and McDonald and Patrol Sergeant Davidson made a search f,or him, but could not find him. lie may have been, liuddled in the dirt some place under the platfcrm, however, as it was only a sliort distance from the platform whoi'e Constable Miller found him in the lane. His clothes were in such a filthy condition that they had to be buriici. The bey was handed over to the Children's Aid Society and will, be kept at the slieiter till something is found out about him. from the Lethbridge authorities. As Was Expected the Rummage Sale Drew the Crowds We have spent months in preparing for this great Sale. With money so scarce, and sales of all descriptions all over the city, we realized it was up to us to make our annual clean-up or " Rummage Sale," stand out, where it belongs -at the top of the list. It did not take long for the buying public to catch on the fact we had planned A Sale That Would Crowd the Busy Store for Nine Lucky Days -($150.00 in Prizes Given Away) The bargains have never been equalled in this city because we have had the co-operation of the Mills and Wholesalers in the East~they send us Mill Ends, Samples and Odd Lines which we turn over to you at factory prices plus the freight. do iF^"^^ simply to show the people of Lethbridge that when it comes to a Sale, we take second place to no one.

Because he forged certain C. P. R. bills of lading, thereby nearly doing the Ei'iisou Milling Co. for the neat sum of $1500, George Armstrong was yesterday afternoon sentenced to spend the next three months in the barracks working for the government. The story surraundlag Armstrong's operations is somewhat spectacular, and out of the ordinary. He appeared before Inspector Lindsay on the charge some days ago for preliminary hearing. Being committed to stand trial. Be elected to be tried summarily, appearing before Judge Jackson In ciliarobers yesterday, pleaded guilty and was sentenced. Representing himself: as connected with the Ellison Mill, Armstrong visited the Grassy Lake and Burdett districts, where he offered 98 cents a busliel for 'wiieat. He bought four thousand bushels at this price, but the farmers would not turn over the bills of lading without receiving some cash deposit. Armstrong aiad no cash. So forged a bill of lading, using the Burdett C.P.R. agent's name. With this document, he cams to Lethbridge where be sold the wheat at the market price, to the Ellison Milling Co. The manager of the mill asked him how much he would like on the shipment, Armstrong replying that $1500 would be sufficient. The cheque 'was 'written out, but just as it w-as being handed 16 him. Sergeant Coleridge appeared on the scene, and place Armstrong under arrest. Sergeant Coleridge merely ihad suspicions that Armstrong's transactions were not legitimate. He knew something about the market price of, wheat and having heard that Armstrong had offered 98 cents, he Immediately cam'ped on Ibis trail. The farmers who sold to Armstrong are not out of pocket, as they still have the wheat. But 98 cents a busih-el created a stir throughout the Burdett district, and some farmers wont out and bought alt the wheat they could find at th� market price, Intending to sell to this optimistic buyer, and tihua make about 30 cents a bushel on the transaction. They are tho only ones that got bumped. If Sergeant Coleridge had not known the price of wheat, the Ellison people would ihave lost the JIBOO. Armstrong conducted the project on an almost nil pocketbook, aa he had exactly |1.50 when arrested.
