Winnipeg, Fell. 1 !l. A weird tale
of a young Indian girl slaying her
father to sav,- hij soul from perdi
tion has been brought in from the
Lake Niplgon country. The Indian
had killed his best friend and it so
preyed upon his mind that he came
to believe the only way to save his
soul was to give up his own life.
Ifjs friends refused his request to
kill him so he placed an ax In his
daughter's hands an, commanded her
to do so. She at first declined, but
when her father told her he would
commit more murders unless she did.
she consented. She ordered her par
ent to stand w ith his back to her, and
swinging the ax with all her strength,
she severed his head from his body.
It Is held by the police Investigating
the case that the killing was in self
defense as the father had threatened
to take the lives of his two young
hum if his daughter did not kill him.

Torreon, Mexico, Feb. 19, In how
great a degree has bull fighting to do
with the decline of Spain as a world
power? This question Is raised by
ondres Osuna, director of public ed
ucation, who has asked the state gov;
eminent of t'oahuila to enact an or
der prohibiting school teachers and
children, from attending bull tights.
Henor Osuna contends that wit
nessing such brutal exhibitions tends
to harden the minds of school chil
dren und make them unlit for. citi
zenship. The bull ring, contends Os
una. has been responsible for the de
cline of Spain us a world power, Just
us gluditorial contests and similar
tloody exhibitions caused the decline
f the Roman empire.
Whatever action may be taken by
the xtate government it is a fact that
the sentiment against hull fighting is
gradually growing among the best el
ement In Mexico.

San Francisco, Feb. 19. It Is expected that as soon as Margaret Illing
ton Frohman recovers sufficiently from her present illness she will begin the
active prosecution of her suit for divorce from Daniel Frohman, well known
theatrical manager. In an Interview, here she declared that the only reason
she is suing for a divorce Is because she wanted n home and her huxlmnd.
Instead of providing It, wanted her to continue on the stage and become
even a greater star than she is.
"I crave a home and children." suld Mrs. Frohman. "Even darning
socks would be better than the life I lead. U Is abnormal and I want to lead
a normal life. It Is for that reason 1 am suing for divorce."
House Committee Makes Re
port of Investigation
of the Paper
Washington, Feb. 19. A reduction
in the duty- on news print paper from
$! a ton to $L a ton, the placing of
ground wood on the free llt and the
establishment of a duty of one
twelfth cent a pound on mechanic
ally ground wood pulp are the rec
ommendations of the select cominii
tee nit pulp und paper luvestigatiaii
which reported lo the House today.
The report states that It presents th
unanimous report of the entire com
mittee. Tlte committee report says It would
mem that the production of news
print paper or the other cheap grades
of paper are today dependent upon
the continuation of cheap ground
wood produced. from spruce trees and
that that condition is likely to prevail
In the future. The am lunt of spru;:e
consumed In the United States In
1907 according- to the report was
about l.L'OO.OOO cords for ground
wood, about l.tUO.UOU cords for sul
phite fibre and about .1.450.(1(10 cor Is
for lumber. The amount of standing
-piucc Is variously estimated but is
roughly guessed to be about Ta.oOO.-
oio cords east uf the Hoekies.
An appeal Is made for the conser
vation of the forests, the e nnmitte
urging that an organized fire depart
ment should be maintained to tight
ll'-e in every considerable forest In
tin country and that young trees
.-lionld lie exempted bv the various
st.it. s in the ordinary rate of taxation.
It is iils.i suggested that the national
government start large trjcH of
young spruce trees.
The paragraph recommended for
insertion in the tariff bill placing a
duty of one-twelfth cent per pound
on mechanically ground wood pu'p
provides that thirl article shall be ad
mitted free .f duty from any country
dependency, or otin r sub-division of
a government which does not forbid
or restrict the exportation or does not
impose an export duty or charge upon
mechanically ground wood or pulp
for u In tile manufacture of wood
pulp. Duties recommended for print
paper are: One print paper valued
at not over 2 and one quarter cents
per pound, one cent a pound; and on
paper valued at over 2 and one quar
ter a pound, one cent a pound; and
on paper valued at over two and one
quarter cents a pound and not over

this morning when Sanchez re-introduced
the Tuft county bill, killed by
the Council yesterday under the name
of Jaffa county, which new bill pass
ed the House under suspension of
the rules by an almost unanimous
vote. In support Of the bill Sanches
scored the Council for having passed
the Curry county bill aid for defeat
ing the Hent and Taft county meas
ures and told his colleagues It was
time the House took action compell
ing the Council to respect its wishes
in the matter of legislation. It Is
stated that unless the Council comes
to time the House will adopt a res

on the calendar and giving prefer

a dead-lock and making the Council
sue for pence by asking for a Joint
conference to settle the trouble. It Is
understood the Pent county bill Is to
be re-introduced under another name,
but this time no portion is to be
taken from San Miguel county, as
was the case in the original bill.
