lumber camp. Saturday, Mav 23, a
terrible tragedy was enacted be
tween father and son.

young man aged 25. Both father
and son were men of passionate,

her little fortune. The old man
had great influence over the girl,
who stood much in fear of him, and
it was due to persistent persuasion
on his part that she promised to
marrv him, although she preferred
the son. The latter learned of his
father’s intention and got the girl
to promise to elope with him. Sat

steal away while the elder Oldshaw
was away, but he returned unex

act. In a fit of rage he drew a re

girljumped between them and re-
ceived the ball in her shoulder.
In falling, she knocked the pistol
out of Oldershaw’s hand, and he
grabbed an ax to save himself from
his son, who rushed at him armed
with a similar weapon. The two
men fought like tigers. Loth being
