And Lady Creech announced that she intended to have ".forty winks" in her own room. Five minutes later Daniel, look- ing up from a superb rendition of "Dolly saw her glaring at him from her window. j Then, came the Herr von Grollerha-; gen from the hotel. He was the calm, imperturbable individual as evec and he "smoked with tbe languid aban- don of a man born to ease. He ap- proached Daniel with a smile. i "You my be asked, and Daniel smiled ,at. him.

"Now, you go down to the kitchen and make for some of the help to give you a bunch of nice clean rajs." For an instant the German drew himself up haughtily. ?What is it you ask me to "Get me some more said M quietly, and Von Grollerhagen low. I'd go myself, but it wouldn't safe to leave the machine."

WOODEN NUTMEG A BACK NUMBER Wood Pulp Cigarettes Are The Latest of the Sharp American's Fakes Toronto, Oct. two well- known brands of cigarette tobacco are each 90 per cent, wood pulp, is a statement made by a speaker before the Street Railway Men's convention at the Labor Temple yesterday. The speaker was a representative of the Cigar and Tobacco Workers' Union., -which, he said, had a chemi- cal analysis of the two brands c-f to- bacco, made. They are the output of non-union shops, amd while they are supposed to be Carolina-tobacco, the only thing about them- savoring of Carolina is that" the product is turn- ed out there. Ninety per cent, of them is wood, but that does not mean that the other ten per cent, is tobacco. The analysis, said the speager, show- ed that the remaining t-en per cent. is 9nly partly tobacco, and that it is mostly other adulterated stuff. Non-U niton Ratferns Another speaker, condemned the many patterns for ladies' and chil- drens' dresses that are turned out by half a dozen American firms and spread broadcast through both the States and Canada. They are intend- ed to be free, and for that purpose are left on counters and other no- ticeable places so that the public cam pick them up. These, he said, are all turned out by non-union firms, and as they represent unfair conditions they should be avoided by every good union man and his wife. President Mathon presented his' an- nual financial statement, which show- ed that the Railway Men's Union is strong in every branch. During the morning the delegates congregated on .the steps of the city hall and had their photo taken.

William Rhyndress, a farmer, of Georgina township, was the de- fendant. Some time sgo some of the man's neighbors called at his home and told him that his wife had been' j acting improperly'with a man of the neighborhood. Rhyndress refused to believe the stories, and put the in- formants out of his house. Then his wife confessed that the neighbors had told the.truth. Rhyndress there- upon told her that either one.of two- things must happen: he would leave her or whip her, just as she chosei' The woman elected for the She removed her clothing, art! i: v.-.v, Inflictod with a whip having a I eighteen inches long. Some of. tha blows broke the skin and drew blood. Oh the welts salt was applied. The next day the.woman appears to told some of .the Tieighbors'what had and'the result was that a, complaint was made before a magis- trate, and Rhyndress was arrested; charged with: aggravated- assault. "The warrant was: .secured on 'an affidavit made by his wife. When the woman placed on the stand at the trial before Judge Winchester, she ad- mitted that she had been guilty of im- proper and had consented to being whipped by her husband in preference to having him leave her. She had left his house for a few days after the occurrence, but had then returned to him, and had been living happily with him ever since.' The jury- found Rhyndress not guilty, of the charge of aggravated assault, but on the direction of'the judge found that he had committed simple assault. The judge suspend- ed sentence. TO LEAVE I. C.

FRIENDS NOW BUT ENEMIES AT BATOCHE Former Secretary of Louis Riel Meets Lestock Reid in Saskatchewan Express Winnipeg, Oct. interesting and dramatic meeting occurred on the Saskatchewan express between Saska- toon and Regina Tuesday afternoon, when Lestock Reid, surveyor for the Indian department, and an old- timer of the west, came face to face Jaion, secretary in the days of the rebellion for Louis Riel. The two men had heen old friends in the days before the rebellion, but had fought on opposite sides, 'and their last meeting had been at after the historic; battle, when Hon- ore Jaxon had been taken prisoner. The two men shook hands with the utmost warmth and forgetting: the old feeling of enmity proceeded to talk over old times, and to discuss with almost 'alarming familiarity the pro- minent figures of the rebellion on both sides. Both men axe still young so far as vigor and energy is con- cerned, and the manner in which they in mind traversed' the entire wide west was nothing 'short of start- ling. At the close of the talk Reid allowed himself to be snap> shotted by his old enemy and friend. FALL OF STONE" KILLED A MINER North Sydney, N.

OLD DAYS AT FORT WHOOP UP This mouth's Canadian Life and i Resources has a cut of old Fort Whoop-up, and the following article An interesting picture of old Fort Whoop-up, near Lethbrklge, Alberta, is here reproduced. This was the most important of all i-he whiskey trading posts in the Canadian West. The sale of liquor to the Indians was as lucrative as it was danger-! ous, in the lawless days of the six-j ties. American traders came up over the border from Fort Benton with supplies, which they doled out to the; Blackfeet, Crees and Assiniboines for their valuable buffalo skins. .Fights were common and many an illicit trader left his" bones to bleach along- side the buffalo's on the prairie. J'crts Kipp and Whoop-up were per- j .'aaent camps, erected by the most curing of these traders. Whoop-up-- so-called because one trader describ- ed himself as Whoop ing-it-up" this particular spot, so rich was the harvest of a regular stockaded fort with a gun mounted at each corner- (One of these weap- ons can now be seen in the garden of Mr. Higinbotham at Lethb'ridge.) In the lawless days described by Cap- tain Palliser and others, these camps were the centres of the worst kinds of villainy and crime. It was to sup- press them -that the North-West Mounted Police were formed. When in the autumn of 1874, after their ar- duous march across the unknown prairie, the first" body of this fam- ous force reached the neighborhood of the fort, they lost their way and were only guMed'to their objective point by the famous half-breed, Jerry Potts, one of the most interesting characters of the early days in Southern Alberta. When they found that the long-expected force had real- ly come, the traders showed no re- sistance. All the' illicit spirit had been got rid of and from the arrival of the- N.W.M.P. lawlessness disap- pears from the annals of the Canadi- an West. The old fort building stood practically intact well into the eight- ies and was at one time occupied-by an amusing character, Dan Healy. There was a great fireplace in the 'corner of the chief living-room and an acquaintance of the- writer, who often went to Whoop-up when Dan was there, had many a chat with him as the cup that cheers atid also inebriates, passed across the hearth.
