Galop 'WILL KNOCK JOHNSON'S HEAD OFF" SAYS BERGEN Of J eff n "the Two Piigi I Tits Will Meet Chicago, Oct. -will meet Johnson as. soon as the details for a, bout can be agreed upon, and he'll knock Jack's head This was the. prediction -made by Sam B er recently sp arring and with Jeffries, who passed through the city yesterday. And his. assertion was hacked up by Edward Jeffries, brother of Jim, who -is on his .way to New York to meet the big fellow when he lands from the steamer. "That .bout out west looks queer in a good many said Berger, commenting on the Johnson-Ketchell fight. "It was a mistake to send Ketchell against a man-so much hea- vier than himself in the first place. It was just putting money into John- son's, pockets. Jeffries has. written that the baths at Carlsbad have done him a world of good and that he is coming back home fifty per cent bet- ter than when he went awayV It is only a question of time now before the final arrangements can be made for the fight." ;y; In case arrangements" can be made for a go in the near future Berger says Jeffries will probably drop any vaudeville arrangements he may have been considering. He expects to re- main for a few days in New York.

To be sur- rounded for several hours bv a school of 30 or more whale while travelling with companions in a small skill, about three miles from land, was the exciting experience of W. I. Crafts of this city, while at the coast recently. Mr. Crafts went from here to Van- couver and thence by boat to Thomp- son's Sound in company with a man. to whom he wished to exhibit a tim- ber tract lying contiguous to the sound. The last part of the journey was accomplished in a small boat, a four oared skiff. It was at Port Harvey that Mr. Crafts, his compan- ion and a guide, embarked in a small boat and proceeded to Thompson's sound. The trip to the sound was unevent- ful, but it was en route back that the party experienced "several narrow escapes. Having returned as far as Knight's Inlet and being eager to .reach their destination as quickly as possible, the guide attempted to cross the in- let at a time which proved to be rather inopportune on account of the rapidly rising tide, and it was there that they very narrowly averted be- ing driven on dangerous rocks by the tide and wind. The guide had taken them in to-the most dangerous situation possible" be- fore, he realized it. They found them- selves attempting to pass through an exceedingly swift tidal current, which was- rushing- towards the inlet, and bid fair to drive them onto a very dangerous reef. After a. desperate "to keep" the boat ahead in the right direction and.keep them from being -driven on the': -reef 'the guide to give up, saying that they were lost and beyond-hope. Mr. Crafts and" his companion, however, took the oars. After a-terrible strug- gle they managed to reach calm wa- ter" and were free from the tidal cur- rent which -had so- nearly dashed them to" certain death oh the rocks. But their trials were not past. Presently the great foamy spouting of a whale was "seen within a short distance of 'the frail craft. Nothing, however, was thought of -the incident and the oarsmen' proceeded to pull their frail craft towards Port 'Har- vey. Then another whale was seen to rise from beneath the surface of the sea. The monster spouted a stream of water.high, in-to the air, then tip- ping forward-and raising its tail high in the air he disappeared even more quickly than' he had appeared. 'Presently two more whales made their appearance" and this time alarm- ingly near. They sported themselves about on the surf ace-for a time and were'no sooner ready'" to disappear beneath the surface again than they were joined by several of the huge mammals which appeared like so many mountains, some of them with- in a hundred feet 'of the' boat.- Surrounded by Leviathans It was now apparent.that-they were surrounded by a school'of the-amphi- bious monsters; Crafts -had 'but meagre knowledge, of whales and their habits and his companion knew less, while the guide appeared to be in terrible fearT Arrest After frolicking about on the sur- face for a 'few moments "the monsters would toss their tails high in the air and suddenly It did not require''theveye of an ex- pert, to.detedtrthe .element of danger. Any one-of-the huge-animals might without" a second's" warning rise from out the 'dark blue waters and crush their fragile atoms or with, one flip of his. terrible tail dash them to death. They a dilemma, but. there nothing for it out to ,await the pleasure of the beasts. They were fully three miles from the nearest island, and had only one hope of safety and that, was to reach Once :pn land they decided that they would await the departure of the whales before venturing on the again so they camped for the night. By the last ray of daylight they could see on every side whales sounding and playing in the calm "waters. In the morning there was not a sign of the mammoth fishes, and the only trace of them was an occasional dark speck far out at sea, from which would arise dense clouds of spray. Mr. Crafts described the whales as appearing like huge mounds of mud when close at hand. Some of them he said were from 60 to 90 feet in length. The remainder of the journey back to Port Harvey was accomplished without -difficulty. After relating his experiences to some experienced sea dogs, Mr. Crafts was startled to learn that their escape had been miraculous as i at this season of the year whales j were very dangerous, it -being the mating season.

Swift Current, Oct. Cur- rent's first annual fair was held on Oct. 12th. In the midst of a busy- threshing season, with only improvis- ed accommodation, and the first cold snap of the fall season prevailing, this initial exhibition was held- and to say the least it gave hopeful pro- mises for the future. It was felt by most of those inter- ested that the best they could do this'season was to make a start, and now it appears that in a country cf bi.< grain crops the fall is not the time to, ho'd an. exhibition. There were some .horse classes :a which there was not a single entry, and the cattle, while very good in quality were very few in numbers. T. R. Bell of Seward helped out this feature considerably with his herd of" grade Herefords, .for which he got a considerable sum of prize money. There.were no exhibits of swine or sheep although entries were made, the people evidently being too busy to bring them in. In poultry the entries were .confined to pens and the exhibit was of a good quality. The vegetables baking, and the women's work were, 'the re- deeming feature of the fair. The la- dies did nobly and their exhibits would do credit larger town and older exhibitio'nl jThe promoters of the fair appreciate' the assistance of the women of the' town and country. There was valuable! work of domestic manufacture, and "of art, which is an emphatic tribute -to the citizens of this district, and; the women from the farm have been equally successful with their competitors in the town. There is said for the ve- getable display, and the collections of Messrs. Doonan, Backmann, New- ell and "VValker, and Mrs. Nastor ell and Walker, and' Mrs. Walker would attract attention in any exhibi tion hall. The home baking was very good, and Misses Cooper and Graham bad a nice display, the pro- duct of their new bakery. Arrangements were made with Mes- srs. Cooper and for the use of the covered rink for exhibition purposes, and considering the prepar- ations necessary the place afforded good accommodation. The judges supplied by the govern- ment did not have a heavy task, but the local judges, on the women's work, particularly, found.their duties more exacting, although so far as can be learned, there 'is general satisfac- tion with their awards. .Many en- tries were in the wrong classes, which was responsible for consider- annoyance to the judges. This was able annoyance to judges. This was the horse classes, and in the latter case the prize list -was clearly at fault but with the experiences of this sea- son, ;the fair management will -be able to do better next year. Every one did the best they could and the re- sults are not discouraging. P. M. Bredt, of Regina, 'the govern ment cattle judge, said that he con- sidered the exhibits very good, con- sidering all conditions, and he looks forward to a splendid. fair here next year providing it is held at a more convenient date for the farmers. The Swift Current band was good enough to turn out afternoon j and discourse several selections both j at the grounds and in the rink. I RI; LE ASSN.

Provision Made For Public Health The report of the Health Commit- tee read at -the council meeting last night suggested some very timely im- jprovements in this department. It ad- vised the licensing and inspecting of all lodging and rooming houses in the city that the health by-law be so amended that when a person knows he is affected with an infec- tious disease, or of any other person, he shall be required to give notice of same to the health officer. It advis- ed strongly the providing of a septic tank or some method of purifying the sewage, as at present grave danger of infection for those using the water of the river below the out- let of the sewers. It advised also that more strict attention be paid to the dairies and bakeries of the city by the health officers, and that two thousand copies of the amended hf.Uth regulations be procured for 'distribution throughout the city.. A communication from D. A. Smith was read in which he enquired as to the nature of the scavenger's duties, .stating that the garbage was ffot be- ing collected as should be done. It was moved by Aid. King that a letter be. sent to Mr. Cook advising him .of these complaints and to attend to them. The mo- tion was carried. It was remarked by Alderman Hatch that the health inspector should be required to ac- quaint with in which this refuse was required to be collected, ami thus a great deal of trouble be saved.
