Fugitive Gives Up Easily Poole came out of hiding as the men drew close to him, and, throwing down his weapon and with his hands in the air, said: "Don't shoot." Poole and his pursuers were all ex- hausted but the sheriff and Attorney Husting on the march back to Fond du Lac had much trouble in persuad- ing the angry villagers of Oakfield to permit Poole to get to the jail alive. The murder occurred at 11.45 in the morning. It would be difficult to find a more dramatic setting for a tragedy. The Methodist church of Oakfield is one of the. oldest in this section and its congregation includes practically all of the church going people in the village and community. Its pastor, Dr. Hasley, is one of the leading mem- bers of the Methodist clergy in Wis- consin, was for years pastor of the Grand avenue church in 3 Cries of "Lynch Him" Heard "Lynch him.'

He tells a great yarn. He says that some time ago he gave a man named Strong to deposit in Strong's name in a bank at Calgary and thought he could draw cheques in his own name in Lethbridge on the strength of that. When the chief re- marked that that was not the usual custom, he said that he thought it was alright but he had never done any banking before. That was too thin for the chief and Magistrate Humphries, so he was remanded a few days until more is learned of him. RAIN HAS CEASED EALUNG AND THE SUN NOW SHINES BRIGHT!

The bridge west is now getting in bad shape, and the bridge east, is em- passable. The passengers of the extra eastbound was sidetracked at St. Mary's for over four hours on ac- count of mud slides and will have to be transferred at the bridge about 9 miles east. The C. P.

The St. Mary's river is still rising and no telling what damage will yet be done.
