NOLAN A Calgary Breed Fargad Name of the Well K nown BarrUUr to a Cheque (Calgary Albertan.) P. J. Nolan, K.C., will have to en- icr the police court under a new role shortly, to give evidence against a half-breed who forged Mr. Nolan's name to a cheque for IU.OO. The prisoner, under the name of Henry Anderson, was arrested yesterday af- ternoon. The prisoner went to the Western Clothing Co., with a fourteen dollar cheque and bought a pair of trousers, and took the change in real cash. It was easy picking for the pris- oner at the start, as the cheque with such good backing was easily caah- ed, and just when Anderson was complimenting himself on hU good luck and that it was time to make his get-away, he was nabbed by the local police, ajjd to his sorrow, found he had tarried just a little too long.
