N SPITE of the fact that there were outcroppings of coal here and there, and that seHlers could cart lie notso-bitumimuis stuff away i',r two d3lars a |.011, some- ,ne went to the trouble to steal two t-n. of the wretched stuff from a settler's back yard one night, and the incidcat gave rise to some un- usoaJly delicate situations. The los- er, a hard-working and worthy na- tive Canadian, kept the news of his loss to himself for several days, meanwhile trying to do a bit of am- ateur detective work on his own. Ten days passed, without results, so one morning he saddled up and vis- ited the nearest post of the Royal Mounted. Both the Mounted and the settler realized, of course, that the amount involved was rather small. Never- theless, the laws concerning prop- erty rights must be upheld, and an experienced member of the Royal Mounted was assigned to look into the matter. Starting in on a "cold trail" has many disadvantages, and the Mounted failed to turn up the slightest clue, for it is impossible to identify stolen coal when all the coal in the district came from the same vein. Furthermore, cold weather had set in and, somewhere that coal was being burned. At any rate, it began to appear that the case of the stolen coal was to join the rather small index of unsolved cases. It was not forgotten, though, by the three men of the Royal Mounted stationed in that district. They stored the details away in the index of their minds confident that some day, somewhere, the first clue would come to light. Nor was their confidence misplaced. Then one morning a chap known as the "Smiling Constable" was trot- ting his horse along the patrol when he observed a settler, away over to his right, waving and beckoning him to come over. In a few min- utes the settler and the "Smiling Constable" were deep in whispered conversation behind the small stb- ble. "My daughters know the whole story about who stole the coal from MacPhee's place," said the settler, "but unless you promise to protect their modesty and woman- hood, we refuse to help you." "Protect themI" exclaimed the Man of the Mounted, "Why . . . of course I will. Witnesses, oh? That's fine. Now, just where were they when they saw the robbery?" "That's just the point. To shout that information in an open court room would be extremely em- barrassing to them. One's fourteen, the other's sixteen . . . and to go into details would . . " "Why 'extremely embarrauipg' . was it so awful . . .?" "No, perfectly natural. Fact is they were taking care of a little matter that isn't mentioned in po- lite society." And so it developed MT.

Within 24 hours the cul- prits were arrested and two days later the case came up for trial. Meanwhile the prisoners had hired As fashion dictates...

The Judge demanded explanations. The Man of the Mounted prosecuting the case asked the judge to step down from the bench for a moment. His honor complied, and the mounted policeman was soon whispering closely into the judge's ear. The Judge resumed his seat, at which the shyster began a display of tan- truss. Finally, the lawyer ran out of breath and words, and the judge asked if he were finished. "Yes . . . I am . . but what does your so-called British law amount to when witnesses are for- bidden to take the stand?" he shout- ed. "Why, my dear sir," smiled his honor, "it amounts to 18 months for your clients, imprisonment at hard labor, and if you don't .behave yourself, you'll do part of it with them. Next case." Later the shy- ster learned why the girls had be@n kept off the stand, and he threat- ened to reopen the case.
