Thomas Ashburnham received a- cable today announcing the death of ,hiB :-unclet the Ttiarl of Ashburaham, in England. -Hon. Mr. Ashburuhim, who /has A resided here for several years', succeeds >to the title and estate In Bngld.nd': -, Magrath, Jan. 14.-Riders coming in from the range, particularly those employed by the Mclntyre ranch, south of Magrath, report the presence of wolves and coyotes among the herds, and assert that they are making serious inroads on the cattle. Old timers declare that, never in their recollection have they seen the coyotes as ferocious as they are this year, the stories revealing almost incredulous facts in respect to the habits of tlie animals. � On the Mclntyre ranch several wolves have already been killed, but there is one fierce animal that thus far has defied all efforts toward his destruction. He is & leader of a band cf coyotes, numbering about thirty, an d is said to be as fleet of foot as a deer, and his cunning and- ferociousness is incomparable. Lured forth by the darkness' and the anticipation of a sure feast, the pack sallies forth at night, attacking small herds in the most unlikely spots o/njthte ranch. The cattle naturally stampede, but they are no match for this gaunt, silent pursuer, and his howling kinsinen. He overtakes the prey first, and in a tVvinklingshamestrings tie poor steer. The pack %oon devepir the animal and another itfetim is ^sought. It is a peculiarity of the wolf-leader that he rarely enters into the slaughter himself, but is satisfied in wounding the beast, leaving it to his following. It is strange that ne,stays with the coyotes, as most all o�, the wolves seen on the plains roam 'alone, shunning company rather than- courting it. His howl, according to the cowboys, is heard only occasionally, and may be distinguished from the shrill cries of the coyotes by its deep, awful tone. The depredations of the pack have become serious, and a' determined effort-is being made to get the wolf. It is believed that by killing him the courage of the coyotes will fail, and they will give up their career of destruction, on such a "wholesale scale, at least. The boys from the ranch also report the capture of an eagle. It had evidently forsaken its haunts in the Rockies and, penetrating too far into the unfamiliar prairie, had flown, aim. lessly on. During the capture the great bird was only slightly injured, and the boys on the ranch tied a bell to its neck, and it waB allowed to once more go out into the world, free. This seems to be. the season for surprising adventures, for a local man had the pleasure this fail of capturing a real deer on this same ranch. Harold Wood, the local butcher, was the man, and a nice big stag was the fruits of his long ride. He was riding the range one day looking over some cattle, and, sighting the deer, prdmpt-ly gave chase. He determined to capture the animal, if possible alive. Tfce chase kept up for several hours, and it began to look as though the hopes of bringing home such a fine and unique trophy as a deer, would go unratified. At length they came to the Milk River. Mr. Wood was riding full speed with the deer ahead making straight for the water. Arriving at the bank it plunged headlong into the stream. If he was going to save the beautiful animal he must act quick, so whirling his lariat, he cast it for the deer's horns. The thro'w was true and he succeeded in getting the splendid prize to land in an exhausted condition. But it was worth while, and Mr. Wood was the envied sportsman of Magrath fdr several weeks. ' During the year 1912 there were 1816 children in actual attendance in the schools of Letlibridge P. P. School District No. 51. 1 For the year the average attendance was 1122, and the number of teaching days was 197. The figures covering the attendance for the past two j-ears are as follows: P.O. 1912 1911 Inc. Enrolment for year 1816 1601 13 Average daily attendance ...... ...... 1122 98 25 In this connection the superintendent's report says: "Our population during 1912 was more stable; consequently pupils did not change so often." At the beginning of the present term there were -16 members on the staff including Supt. Hamilton and the three supervisors of special departments. From now on Letlibridge will rank with other cities so far as schools go in that all pupils are now given vocal instruction, Miss Lombard having been engaged as supervisor of music. Supt. Hamilton in his report also advocated that in future the school board publish' its annual report in pamphlet form. This is done in Edmonton and Calgsry. Four new teachers have been added to the staff since the close of the fall term in December. Auditors' Report. W. A. Henderson & Co., official auditors, submitted* their annual report. The income for the year amounted to $83,8-12.61 against an expenditure of $89,062.89, leaving a deficit on current account of $5,220.27. On capital account the receipts were $134,312.50 of which $95,874!32 has been expended for Galbraith, Manual Training, Hardieville and Physical Culture schools; The balance on the .credit side of 'this account is $34,600. The=balance on hand'at the end of the year on back accounts was $30,-876.22. Tliere was some discussion as to whether the school board should undertake to bear' $50 of the expense ol-bringing special swimming instruct}', or Mr. Brown ttrthe Y. M. C. A., the association to bear the remainder of the $100 expense. The matter, was left in the hands of the school management committee to; make a special report.c- ju-- .-aw2--s.--- TAXES GAS SUPPLY MEDICINE HAT HAD TO DRAW ON THE NEW HARGRAVE WELL Medicine Hat, Jan. 15.-Some time today the gas supply on this side of the river will be augmented by the additional supply from the-Hargrave well.

L'Hoste, a .handsome woman, who described her married existence in bitter words to the jury. The case resembles that of Mme. Block. Many witnesses testified to the unhappy relations between M. and Mme. L'Hoste. The husband's favorite maxim, said onej was "A man of the world ought to be able to live without doing any work." Daily brutalities, said Mme. L'Hoste were followed by his proposal that she g'ive up herself to a life of shame;* -At last she went to live in. a flat hired by her grandfather, and began -proceedings -for divorce. On July 1 ber husband entered her flat at ten o'clock at night. - "After taunts," said Mme. L'Hoate, *' he tdld me 1 must give up the divorce petition, or sign a bill for him for 10,000 francs ($2,000)V- I refused. He struck me. He took me by the throat, trying to strangle me. I secured a revolver, believing it to-beat halt cock, and wishing only to frighten my husban'd, but it went. off. I didjglj I could for -my; husbah.d, setift-ing"for" and 'prtea^.'andsiit* that moment I would, indeed, have given all to save him." The jury acquitted her, in spite.of the declaration of the public prosecutor, that "no one possesses the right to kill her husband, whatever his faults." 1L AND STEAMSHIP D. A.
