There are .nine from Raymond writing on Standard VII and seven on Standard VI, Minister of Railways promising a thorough investigation, all under the supervision of this chief coinissioner, the officials aforenamed are less pleas- ed than ever. In fact, some of the law- yers show symptoms of peevishness. For Chief Commissioner Mabee is a physically and a big, strong, ruthless man with a mind controlled by a fund of practical common sense which refuses to allow the clouding of issues by legal fogs, and with a knowledge of law which discourages chicanery. And there is that ruthlcssness which has been hinted at, a habit of speak- ing his mind, of stripping the gilded verbiage from an ugly fact, which frequently brings anguish to the sen- sitive souls of corporation lawyers. "When railway companies go ahead and do work they know is contrary to the statutes they can get out of the difficulty the best way they can. I don't propose to help you in any he said to C. P. E.

Which line of conversation is no received with enthusiasm by the rail no means.. But think of the joy of the joy of the common pee- pul. Under the guidance of its new chief the Railway has developed into a tri- bunal before which the most insigni- ficant layman can appear and receive justice.

After tho ball game there was the fol- CAPTURING A LION While the agent of Campbell Bro- thers Great Consolidated Shows which will exhibit in Lethbridge on July 7, was in our office, he related a story of the capture of an African lion in its native forest. Mr. H. C. Brashear, the purchas ing agent of the show, made a trip t0 Africa to try and secure some wild animals for the menagerie. While there the natives told him of a male lion that had evaded capture for years. Mr. Brashear immediate- ly offered a large sum for the cap- ture of the animal and the natives began at once to plan how to secure the reward. First a large circular pit was dug about fifteen feet deep, and all the dirt from the excavation was carefullly carried away, as a lion is very sus- picious. Thc hole was then thor- oughly covered with light brash, and grass, and made to appear as if the ground had never been touched. The next step was to secure some oh ject tempting enough to attract Mr. Lion to the place. A live lamb was hung by a strong cord from the -limb of a tree that reached out over the covered pit. All these preparations were made late in the evening. That night the (Monarch of the for- est, while stalking for prey the lamb bleating and made -a spring for it; catching it, of course the string broke, and the lion and lamb both went crashing down into the" pit. At daybreak the natives brought a large net- which they threw down over the lion in the pit. In his rage at being caught, and in his efforts to claw his way free from- thc net covering him, he only got more tan- gled up in it, till at last he was so thoroughly enmeshed that the na- tives had little-trouble in placing him in a strong crate and he was a cap- proving to be a notorious were subsequently lodged In a safe re- treat which the Hon.
