Dobson. who Glasgow was alone in the office, if there was j a trunk for them. Dobson had just come out of the money cage with sev- eral packages of money amounting to intending to take'them to the express car on trcin number five, just about to leave. He placed them on the back counter in the office and asked the strangers' name, at the same time reaching below" the public counter for the address book of the packages on hand. As he reached down, one of the strangers struck -him on top of the head with a piece of piping, bound with .electric tape, felling him to the floor unconscious. Then the robbers jumped over the counter, gathered up the money pack- 'ages and escaped with his compan- ion. Some twelve or fifteen men were working a few feet away from where the robbery occurred, but all were busy loading baggage on the outgoing train and failed to notice the hold- up. When the agent, R. B. Brown, and help came to the office, just as the train was leaving, they found Cashier Dobson on the floor uncon- scious, his head in a pool of blood and an ugly gash back of his ear. The alarm was given, and Dr. Mc- Cary was called and administered re- storatives to Dobson, who was arous- ed sufficiently to describe one of the bandits as a short dark man with a looked like a for- eigner, the other as a dark, tall man. Then Dobson became unconscious again. Some one was found who saw a man jump onto a train as it was going out. the train was stopped by Programrrse Of Mat- ters Not Yet Made Up Quill Lake, Sask., Nov. tra gic events of the past few days in connection with the murder of George Thoburn, his wife and Mrs. McNiven.

No th- is definitely known as to how the accident happened as the other members of the family were away from home at ihe time, but from the fact that a water bucket was picked up by the pool at the bottom of which the child's body was found, such is supposed to be the case. The father of the'child s employed at Hillcrest and was on shift at the time. The mother, in the afternoon, went up town shopping and left Wil- helmina to look after four smaller children. It seems that after the mother left, the four small children went to a neighbors and had been home but a short time when the mo-1 ther returned. She asked them j where their sister was but they did not know as they had left her home and she was gone when they return- j ed.
