C  Pv  Lost His Cane Protector  There are .always some people hi  this world who are always learning  something that wilUbe to'their future advantage,' arid , Abbptsford  town .is where some people -learn  what is good for themV Tom Nash  of South Vancouver 'has made several trips to Abbotsford within the  past few weeks, land .now he knows  more, and his .pocket is lighter than  it was on Thursday last unless he  has made about $15.00 more than  usual 'during the. past two days.  Tom says he is an American citizen  but he looks like a Japanese, and  from appearances a very desperate fellow. He says he is a good  fighter, but he. once got the worst  of it from a hobo, and for the sake  of self-protection he flays he purchased a sword-cane at a sceund  hand store :*n Vancouver, so that  when he went,out into the country  to ouy real estate, even if it was  after dark, he need not fear man  nor   beast.  It was noticed by one of our citizens .that Tommy's dragon cane  was nothing less than a concealed  weapon, and the word was passed  on to Constable Black that he  should get busy. He.did, and with  the assistance of ye editor enticed  Nash inside the\ jail, when Tom received a ' surprise that cost him  a fine aaid the confiscation of his  cane, and nowi,it decorates the hall  of Justice, along with severraloth-\  ���������er curiosities. ���������  Messrs McPhee and Authier, J.  P's, notwithstanding the .protestations-'of the timid real estate a-  gent, had Tom Nash before them  for   carrying   concealed .weapons,  and the fine above mentioned imposed. It was better thaoi going  lo 'ail however, and now the ho-  boes'and the denizens of the foest  have a better chance for their life  when they meet Tom Nash of South  Vancouver, 'either in the dark or  the , daylight. .Our constable iwill  hereafter know a cane of a similar nature when he .sees' it.
