Kootenay Frank Clubs to Death
Another Indian named flntoine
and Sinks Body in the Lake
-An Atrocious Act.
Nakisc, Aug. 21,— It is evident that
a foul murder has been committed on
the Lower Arrow Lakes, about HO miles
louth of here, resulting from a drunken brawl among some Indiana.
On Sunday last two members of the
almost extinct tribe, there being but
20 odd lelt, departed from Fauquier's
ranch, and, after securing two bottles
of whisky from a Chinaman, proceeded iu a rowboat to Burton City. Only
one arrived there, and he stated that
his partner bad returned to The
Needles hy the shore.
F. U. Fauquier had occasion to come
to Burton, and, finding tbat both men
hid uot arrived, cane on to Nakusp
and reported the matter to the police.
Chief Constable Devitt immediately
started on tbe hunt, and last night
arrested Frank Kootenay for the murder of Antoine lliptiste. his partner,
near Grassy Kiver, Airow LakcH,
about three miles from The Needles
Chief Devitt had followed his man
since Tuesday and arrested him iu
the bush between Thrums and the
mouth of the Kootenay Kiver. He
aod another Indian had purchnsed
changes ol clothes aud a rille when
arrested.
Suspicion attached to Kootenay
Frank, because when he lelt The
Needles Ranch be was without, funds,
and later Chief Devitt discovered that
h- mis opcudlnp $20 bills.
Subsequent tu his arrest he made a
complete confession to Chief Devitt
and said that he killed Antoine by
clubbing his rille and hitting him on
tbe back ol the head. He then opened
his stomach and bowels with his knife,
tied a stone to his wrist, aud towed
him to mid-lake, wbere he sank the
body and rifle.
Cbiel Devitt brougb bis man to
Nakusp this morning and lodged bim
in gaol, returning with grsppling
irons for a search of the lake.
Both Indians are well-known here,
and it is consider! d almost inconceivable that the man could commit
such a loul deed.

CHILDREN SENT AWAY
Four Bickerton Children Consigned to the
Children's Aid Society
C. .1. South of Vancouver, Superintendent under the Children's Protection Act, was in the city yesterday,
aud secured by consent of Samuel
Bickerton and bis wife, an order transferring tlieir four children to the care
of tbe Children's Aid Society at the
Home in Vancouver. The order was
made out yesterday alternoon by
Police Magistrate Foster in tbe presence of tbe parents and children all
quite willingly consenting to it. Mr.
Bickerton further agreed to make a
contribution of $25 a month towards
tbeir support in the borne.
As it was a consent order no evidence was taken. Mr. Soutb explained
to tbe court that Irom bis ioformation
there were unhappy circumstances in
tbe home that made it desirable that
the children should be sent where
tbey could be reared under wholesome
and moral inlluences. They would be
well cared lor, but tbe parents must
understand that t: ey would be completely out ol their control, that being
vested wholly in tbe directors of tbe
Children's Aid Society.
Mr. Bickerton asked il they could
bave the children buck if their conduct warranted it.
Mr. Smith said that would be a
matter optional with the directors of
tbe Society.
Mr. and Mre. Bickerton appeared
satislicd snd signed the order giving
the children to the care of the society-
Mr. South said they would ask Ior no
support Ior the eldest girl who is fit-
lien ycun. old. hut would expect tbe
lather to contribute whit he could to
the support ol  the others.
The children were lell  in   the  care
ol tlieir parents lor the night, and
will probably be lorwarded to Vancouver today, the father paying tlieir
fare. The children consist of two
girls aged 15 and 12, and two boyB
aged 13 and 4. Tbey are a bright and
handsome looking family, and it seemed pitiful that they should be separated from their parents, but it is
admitted to be tlie best lor their own
sakes.
Mr. South went down to Nelson this
morning, and wil! then go on to
Phoenix where he bus other children
to gather in for the Homo, an institution tbat is certainly doing nobli
work in this province.

More bread and Better
 And the Reason for it
A STRONG FLOT'R can only
** be made from strong wheat.
Manitoba hard wheat is acknowledged the strongest in the world—
and that is the kind used for
Purity Flour.
But that's not all. Every grain
of this wheat contains both high-
grade and low-grade properties.
In separating the high-grade parts
from the low-grade the Westeru
Caoada Flour Mills put the hard
wheat through a process so exacting
that not a single low-grade part
has the remotest chance of getting
In with the high-grade.
Of course tli i.s special process is
more expensive to operate but it
means a lot to Purity llour users—
that's why we use it.
It means that Purity Flour is
made entirely of the highest-grade
flour putts <if the strongest wheat
iu the world.
It means a high-class, strong flour
and therefore yields "more bread
and better bread."
Purity may- cost a little more
thnn sonic flours, but results prove
it the cheapest and most economical after all.

where tu this timet" "Roger's Pass,"
replies the missionary. 'Only sixty
miles'.' Well, that's pretty good before
breakfast."
Such ii the frequent experience of
the missionary who lives in the little
lumbering village ol Three Valley, B,
C., and whose domain extends from
Roger's Pass to Sicamous Junction on
tlie main line ol the C P.R. Ninciy
mllei is the length ol the held and in
tbis distance eight places require the
services the iniwiioiiary. The travelling must all be done by rail, but this
is grrally helped this summer by the
generosity ol tlie C.P.R. Co., who gave
the missionary a pass over the entire
d i-1 a nee.
llie lllcoillewait minion Beld is well
characterised by Ibe word "variety."
At otic end ol the Beld you enjoy the
b'iglltest sunshine while at the other
extreme a wild snowstorm ragas A'
one extreme the children play in tin
sandy dun, while m the o*.!ier Bud
clothed in mitts ami ovorcoats, they
roll in the si.owb.mks winch remain
trom the winter.
As lo oooupatlon there is also variety. Three appointments are villages
populated only by railway employees
aud their families; two appointments
are lumbering villages; one a lumber
camp, oue a tourist resort fur mountain climbers and the remaining one a
fruit growiug district.
Resulting from this variety in occupation one finds a corresponding variety iu the people themselves. The
lumbering villages are filled mainly
with Americans. The railway villages
have all kinds ol people, though perhaps Caoadians predominate; the
lumber camps aro tilled wish men
who have got, to get away from town
because of their wmkness for drink;
while the Iruit griving district has
Swedes us its most progressive ranchers. In all these places a large number of Japanese, Obinamen, Hindus,
^inlanders and Italians are also to be
(ound.
No other denomination is at work
oil the held, nntl the missionary seldom learns the Oburob preference of
any individual, No objection would
be made to church union on this held.
Besides the usual denominations, the
missionary finds at his Be vices a large
number of Swedes and a lew Finland-
era and Chiuatneu. He also finds
many good friends among the Japanese, Hindus and Italians.—Hislop

A SUNDAY HOLD-UP
Two Men Allege That They Were
Coming from Lower Town
The story ot a hold-up between the
upper and lower towns was told to the
poli-e on Monday morning by two men
named David Love and William Beg
gie, who board at the Queen's hotel.
They sny that about eight o'clock on
Siiiul iy evening ub they were coming
iqi ibe hill Irom the 1 nver town two
men sprang upon Ihem and knocked
them down, but left them after giving
them a good beating as they could
find nothing on them.
The men appeared befoie Chief Bain
on Monday morning with their faces
badly bruised and plastered. They
were unable, however, to give any
very accurate description of the men
who assaulted them. From what they
did say, however, the chief of police
believes that the assault was committed by two men who were Beeu walking
along the track about twelve miles
west by some train hands at an early
hour on Monday morning; but the
descriptions given were not detailed
or accurate enough to warrant arresting or holding them.

"A man shot three times at section

Such was tbe substance ol a telegram
received here hue on Sunday night
from .Miilukwii. In response Provincial
Constable Kington and Dr. Hamilton
went out on the Brat train available,
When Ihey arrived, however, they
found that no worse injury bud been
done than thut one ol I lie in mutes bud

a Hungarian named Victor Taliviltie
who bud then challenged lhe others to

when tbey refused, hnl taken bis rille

Bring it off around tbe house. It was
iu tbe scare tbat be created 1 hat the
telegram wus sent. The phrase, "nmn
shot three times," evidently meant
that Talivitlie had tired oil' his rille
that Dumber ol times or that tney
(eared that the Finn whose face was
hleding, had actually been bit by
bullets.
Dr. Hamilton dressed the wounds of
the Finn whom Taliviltie had pounded
with his list, and Constable Kington
arretted Talivittie and brought him
into the city. He came up befo e
Magistrate Foster on Monday morning and pleaded guilty of creating a
disturbance, saying that he was so
dniok that he did not ktmw what he
was doing. It. came out in the evi.

Bush Fires
Many bush tires have been reported
lately us raging in the country to the
smith, but so lar no serious damage
has been done. A big fire was burning in the St. l.eon distriel Monday,
tint was conliued- to the bush. Reports were published in Vancouver
pipers on Saturday of serious damage
d me by fires around (irand Fi rks
and Cranbrook, but, ou furUier inquiry
these proved to lie without foundation
There were tires in the bush in those
districts, but at no time weie the
towns in danger, though some of the
lumbering companies suffered losses
in standing timber and speut a great
deal of money in lighting the lires.
