I). Metiiot, lawyer of Piii(;her Creek, which occurred on Tueflday morning last, was quite a shock to the community us he had boon in his usual health a few days before. The cause ot his death was hemorrhage brought on by a touch of grin. Mr. Methot was born at Arthabasl?a, Que., in 188G. Ho was admitted to the Bar of Quebec in 1911 and came west to Edmonton. Shortly after he was admittod to the Alberta Bar in 1912 and came (o PIncher Croek the same year, where he took over the law practice of U. .Ij. Ormond. Ho was married April, 101.5, to Miss (Jathorine Cyr, the only danghtor of Mr. and Mrs. Dolphus Cyr, and leaves no children. A head of cabbage was brought into town Wednesday from the ranch of Mr. J. J. Heppner, south of town, which weighed 28 lbs. Joe has quite a patch of them though not quite as good as that one. Charged Woman With Assault During the early part of September Tom Dier, ot Stavely, laid information that Miss Clotilda Pinse, of Ifish-burn, did assault him. The accused appeared before T. Elliott, J.P., on Sept. 10, and pleaded not guilty to the charge. The complainant gave evidence that the accused and her brother beat him and fired two shots at him. The accused gave evidence In her own behalf, and stated that the complainant had become a pest around the house, and the only way she could get rid of him was with the assistance of Iier brother to throw him out. and that when they had succeeded in doing so she fired two shots from a 32 caliber revolver to scare him uway. Charlio Pinse, a witness for . the defence, stated that he thought it his duty to assist and protect his sister and throw tile complainant oft their place, as he was not invited there. The case was dismissed and the swain forelorno paid the cost of the court $3.75. Willie M. Cyr appeared before Elliott and Schofield, J.P.'s on Sept. Kith ,charged with indecently assaulting a female, contrary to the provisions of Sec. 292, C. Code of Canada. He was given the option of being tried by them or by Judge and Jury. He elected to be tried summarily and pleaded guilty. Thoir Worships, after hearing the evidence, fined the accused $75 and costs, $10.05 or in default two months hard labor. Fine and costs were paid. Some Nasty Cases ' Agnes Burns, who was one of the women gathered into the fold,' was arrested at Grover Matthews' place near Beaver Mines and appeared before His Worship T. Elliott, J. P., charged with having no means of support, living without employment, which proved that the charge was well founded, and that her two children were being reared in a very improper and immoral manner. Accused gave evidence on her own be-lialf, which, under cross examination, went against hor. His Worship T. Elliott, J.P., found the accused guilty and sentenced her to three months imprisonment in the gaol at Fort Saskatchewan. Florence Matthews was arrested at the homo of Henry Matthaws and on a similar charge to that of Agnes Burns laid before His Worship. The accused pleaded guilty at thn same time, stating that she was not married to Charles Matthews, but lived with hira as his wife, and that her real has-band'.? name was Ward. His AVor-shlp took a lenient view ot the case and gave a suspended sentence of three months and six days for the woman to leave the town and district. The case of Agnes Burns' two children then took place. They were consequently made wards of the Government nad turned over to Mr. Brooks, of the Children's Shelter, at Lethbridge. SH INFLUENZA OFANCIENIHISIORY Dates Back to the Ancient Days -Whole World Has Epidemic. PTWITH AO OF WHISKEY Taken in Champion; Seven Cases of Firewater in His Possession. Washington, Oct. 12.-Spanish in-fli?onza, Pul^llc Health Service scl-! entlsts believe, is very similar to the epidemic of grippe which swept the country during the winter ot . 1889 and 1890. Very probably, the infection, resurrected in Europe, and after sweeping the war-torn countries, now has appeared in the United States, has a very ancient history, taking it back to the day of Hippocrates and Livius more than four hundred years before Christ. The best means of treatment of influenza cases were communicated to the country a few days ago by Surgeon General Blue through the Associated Press. Now General Blue has i.9sued a leaflet vrhich tells something about the strange malady. "It seems probable that in 1918, as in 1889-90, the earliest appearance was in eastern Europe, it says." By April .cases were occurring on the western front. In Spain, according to reports, 30 per cent, of the population were qttadked In May. The 1889 epidemic, starting in northern Europe, also fell heavily on Spain; the present ruler, then thic^ years old, being one ot the first attacked in Madrid The King of Spain is said also to have been. attacked in the present epidemic. The epidemic of 1918 was at its height in Germany in June and July.' It has appeared in, jaiKtlcally every section of Europe.' In England the epidemic prevailed in May, June and July, "Outbreaks have been reported Vulcan, Oct. 18. - The Advocate says: A.P.P. Mackie of Barons, made a rich haul last Pr'day night in Champion, when he caught Orlando Ditto, a farmer who resides a few miles west ot Champion, with seven cases of whisky in his possession. At the time the policeman was on the street and noticed the car, which had one occupant, was without lights. Ho got into conversation with the occupant, wlio did not appear to relish the convers.a-tion with the policeman. On being asked who was the owner of the car the man stated that it belonged to Ditto. The policeman waited until Ditto appeared on the scene and then arrested him. Ditto and the car were brought to Vulcan, The car and Its contents ai-e .still held here, and Ditto is out on bail for eight days, until October 20th, on two sureties ot $500. the. public all merchants and business men are requested to terminate their correspondence with the following words, in place of the customary ending.
