Lehman, was united in  marriage to Mr. Ellsworth Evans,  second aom, (olf Mr. and Mrs. J. Evans of Vancouver.   The bride was  given away by her father and was  smartly attired im ai ,neat blue taii-  ormade suit 'over   a   white blouse  and a  chic 'white h|at, and carried  a   shower biqquet oif white chrysanthemums.   The bride was attend  ed by Miss Olive Patrick who wore  a   lavender silk gown, and carried  a   beautiful boquet of pifnk carnations.   The grolqm was .ably assisted by Mr. Wm. ������atchell brother of  the bride.   The bridal party entered the 'parlor ijo| the tune jaf Mend-  lessohn's wedding march played by  Professor Jay.   After the ceremony  which was (performed by the Rev-.  Dr. P.

The  table   was 'prettily ^arranged  and  was centred with   a   basket filled  with white carnations.   The happy  couple were the recipients of many  handsome and useful presents.

Nicomen comes again to the front  this time as the scene of lone of the  most cold-blooded, murders in  the  history .of the province.   The murderer is still at large in the dense , .  forest near the place of the .crime.  For   some  time   past   there  has  been trouble in the Jasper andMc-<  Laughlin families, owing to the attention loMone Scotty McNeil pay-  Lag   undue   attention   to  Mrs.  Mc-f  .Laughlin   and   the   murderer   had     ���������  I rrvide the threat, it is understood,  that  the -next time he  fouind  his  wife in the company of McNeil that ������������������  he  would   shoot  him.   On   Sunday  last McNeil and Mrs. McLaughlin,  company with (others, were driving  some two  mtiles  east  of Deroche,  ���������when McLaughlin saw them.     He,  it is reported, jumped into the wag  an and shot Mrs. Jasper, am aged  Indian, Billy Jasper, uncle of Airs.  McLaughlin, and  also Scotty  McNeil.   Before   being -shot,   McNeil*  picked up  a rifle' lying in' the bottom of  the  wagon  and  shot McLaughlin through the chest.     Mrs:  McLaughlin then 'then quietly ana  calmly drove to Deroche with the  three  dead bodies in- the wagon.  This was the first intimation' of the  triple murder .shortly after which  .word was sent to the police both  in Vancouver and New Westmin^  ster.   McNeil is  a white man, 30 is  the ' murderer,  but the  others  are  either full blooded Indians or halt  breeds. -��������� ���������'  It is reported tha tMcLaughlin is  seriously wounded and that he cannot live without medical attention.  His wife attempted to fix,up the  wound but .was unable to stop the  flow iof bliolod.   He was able ,to go  to his shack and secure more amr  munition,  a distance of two. miles.  He   then   again  (disappeared   into;  the woods and "since that time has  not been seen, although an armed  posse .of constables and specials are  in the vicinity and have commenced   scouring   the   wo������ods.   He   has  has plenty of ammunition and also  a  rifle and as 'he <'is desperate and  wounded he would probably show  fight if cornered.I. ��������� ^   ' '.  Both- McNeil, the fdead man, and  McLaughlin the murderer, bear a  rather unsavory reputation, and  have been in the habit' of peddling  whiskey to the Indians. "Silas"'  McLaughlin is as assumed name,  he has lived 'in Nicomen ifor about  two years. He has served time for  a   stabbing affair some two year's  ago.  The police are uot on the trail  of the murderer and if is though  that it will be merely a shoVt time  before he is captured.

Though Senator Casgrain .has been  in .many a political fight and dealt  some hard blows to his opponantsj he  has always played" the game squarely,  witill the result that to-day he hasn't  an enemy, and now the worthy senator  aits -amongst the select and practically out of- the fighting line, his  popularity increases each session.  Senator Casgrain, who is a land  surveyor, was born in Quebec in 1856.  His family on both sides had for generations taken a prominent part in  the public' life of Canada, so that  young Casgrain early in life imbibed  ideas of public work.  ' His scholastic training at the Seminary of Quebec was followed by a  hard training In Engineering and surveying; after, which Mr. Casgrain took  -OOOOOOOOOCJOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  ������ O  o -  OQOOOOOOOOObOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.  ���������HOUSING THE POULTRY  Ono   of   <he' Hardest   Problems   tho  Western Parmer Has (o Solve  During the Winter Months.  3������f  &%  The ��������� hardest . problem Western  farmers have to solve is sutable  housing, during the winter for the  poultry. Hens ..will live through the  winter in almost.any kind of a house  but those.that live in such a houso  fail to turn in their share of eggs, or,  as it sometimes happens, none at all.  Those who have separate poultry  houses.will find two factors to meet  ���������either ,'stuffness and dampness, or  the'house' is too cola. The former  difficulty must be. oa. rccuie; of tho  two it is the -most injurious to tho  health of tho' poultry.. Put in ventilation-shafts to. draw off. the air  from both, the bottom and top of the  house, even go so far ;-.s to use cheese  cloth in a small'portion of the window. Doubtless .this will cool. the  house very materially, but the chances  of- producing- eggs aro far. greater  th*m if the hoube is -damp.  . in the cold-house it must be remembered- where there is -a good supply  of chaff and straw in which the feed  is thoroughly mixed, lb'3 h'-is v.-ill  not feel the effects of .rue cold while  working for-the scattered and buried  grain.

A thing that has caused many people to wonder is the fact that a  chicken never falls off Its perch. The  reason is that whenever the fowl's  leg is bent, the toes are involuntarily forced to close inwards, clenching  the foot like a fist. Thus, when a  chicken wishes to roost, it mounts  the perch with legs straight, and,  having , selected a foothold, lowers  i.Ublf"b7 bending its legs.

West where great  heaps of straw are burned every  season, the cutting of rough feed is  not a general practice. Nevertheless,  there are many stockmen and dairymen- who would' not think of trying  to winter their stock without running their roughage through a cutting  box. Not only is there is a saving  in feed, but also the manure is in  much more desirable condition for  spreading on the land. In addition,  the cut straw makes it possible to  save practically all the liquid manure.  As mixed farming and stock-raising  become more general,, the number of  straw cuters will increase. Most  farmers have some kind of power on  the farm that can be used during the  winter for this purpose. When they  have started, they do not as a rule  give it up.
