Da New Ruling By Pollock On Seed Wheat Liens In denying a motion for a new trial in, the case of Schlosser vs. Moore this morning, Judge Pol lock gave an opinion on an im portant poin^of law that should be of great interest to farmers and merchants in the state, es pecially if the supreme court should sustain Judge Pollock. The case was tried at Sher brooke at the last term of court and this morning Judge Pollock took up the motion for a new trial. The action was to fore close a seed lien on a crop of wheat, flax and barley, all of which was sown on a certain quarter section of land. No flax was raised and it was contended that the lien would attach to the wheat and barley to fray the price of the flax seed as well and the wheat and barley seed. Al though the transaction in buying the grain had been made at one time, the court held that the lien could only attach to the wheat and barley for the price of the same and could not be held for the flax seed since no flax was raised. The motion for anew trial was preliminary to an appeal to the supreme court. While the amount involved in the case is only about $100, the point in volved is of such importance to farmers, merchants and grain men that the case will be con tested to the limit.—Forum. At the W. C. T. U. entertaiment given a couple of weeks ago at the opera house, the Ladies of that organization presented the high school of Hope with a beauti ful picture of Mrs. Frances D. Willard. Mrs. Dr. Philip made the presentation speech, and Mr. Jacobson, president of the board, responded. I. H. Brekke, who has been ill the past year and a half with a form of Brights disease, died on Tuesday evening. Mr. Brekke moved here from Page about two years ago and opened a hardware store, but sickness overtook him andcompelled him toclose up his business. A number of children survive him. He was in the neigh borhood of 55 years of age—Port land Republican. A Dangerous Question. Assistant District Attorney William Band Jr., of New York, was talking about the dislike that women have to telling their age in court. "As a rule," he said, "a woman, not withstanding her disinclination, gives her age civilly. Now and then, though, she makes some caustic comment that strikes with unpleasant force the lawyer questioning her. It is always dangerous to ask a woman how old she is. "In a New York court I once heard a lawyer examining a maiden lady. He was by no means young, but he strove to conceal his years. He wore a wig and his mustache was dyed When he asked the lady her age she bit her lip and frowned at him. "'Your age, ii^dam' he repeated "She conti ued silent. She frown ed harder than ever. "•Really, madam,' said the lawyer, 'I must insist upon your answering my question. Obstinacy is useless here. How old are you?' 'Forty-three,', sho said savagely. 'How old are you, you fool? You look about ninety.'" Old Age Pension Scheme. The British consul at Calais tells la his annual report of an effort to deal with old age pensions. Twenty three years ago M. Ch&telus formed a society, the rules for membership be Ing a monthly payment of a franc, all the funds to be invested, and at the end of twenty years the interest on capital to be equally divided among members, and in each succeeding year those who had been members for twenty years to receive their equal share of this interest. The present rate of pension is £14 18s. a year. The membership. now stands at 347,951, with a capital of more than £1, 500.000. Uncomfortable Chairs.

He leaves a wife and a number of small children to mourn his demise. We did not learn the details of the dis position of the remains. Emil: Sollin, with the Gold Medal Pharmacy, met with a pe culiar accident last Saturday, which came near causing the loss of his right ear.' In stooping to pick up a nail he hit the handle of a hand, ax which was lying upon one of. the shelves, causing it in some un known manner to strike him on the ear and cutting that member so badly that it was necessary for the doctor to take eight or ten stitches in dressing the wound. It is healing quite rap idly now and Mr. S. is thanking his lucky stars that he still has that most useful appendage left.
