A TIP TO CITIZENS Lethbridge, Alta., July 27, 1909 Editor Daily Herald: see in your last Saturday's issue, a report of Mr. J. F. Johnson the weed inspector for this district, has been busy up north. Now I think he would be doing good to have .an inspection in town. And set upon some of the .grumblers of this town. As well as setting on the poor homo- steaders. He has only to walk along 'the side walk when he can find weeds of every kind in many' private residences and other parts o.f the town. And if a few hoes were set to work at, this time of the year and the weeds cut, j and if possible carted to the rubbish i heap and burnt, would soon destroy them. Unless Dad's Council takes the matter in hand, a letter to the weed inspector would do a lot of of good. I have seen other years the strong wind take the dry weeds from the .town-into the open quite as bad AS from one homestead to another. Yours, etc., Tom Parry, Diamond City. Girl, the.

Little Hock, Ark., July for the possession of a child reached a tragic climax at a conference, of the principals in the suit in the circuit court room late today when W. Y. Ellis, nephew of John F. Rulherc-urd, millionaire lumberman of Pine Bluff, Arkansas, shot and killed Nathanial Parker Willis, of Indianapolis, Ind., prominent business man and politi- cian, father of the child and former husband of Mrs. The suit at law was terminated yesterday, Judge Fulk instructing that the child be surrendered by Mrs. Ellis to the cus- tody of Willis. Today's conference was to arrange the details. Those participating were Willis and fJllis, the latter's wife, divorced from Wil- lis some years ago, U. S. Senator Jeff Davis, who appeared as attorney for Ellis, and Judge Fulk. Arrange- ments were being concluded when El- lis fired over the shoulder of Senator Davis at Willis. Court attaches struck his arm, however, and the bul- let went wide. Willis ran from the court room with Ellis in pursuit. El- lis fired again when he reached the doorway inflicting a wound from the effects of which Willis died within ten minutes. Ellis surrendered and was imprisoned. Later, however, he was taken from the city by officers in an automobile for an unknown des- tination. IMPORTANT BUSINESS CHANGE BALL PLAYER SAVES A LIFE Rescued Child in the Harbor of St. John, N. B.
