Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 3, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta LETMBRIDQt, ALTA., SATURDAY, APRIL 3, 1909. From a Western Window Why Not? Because the rose must fade Shall I not love the rose? the summer shade, Passes when winter blows, Shall I not rest me there In the cool air? Because the sunset sky Makes music in rnv Only to fall r.-ii die. Shall I not uik .jho Of beauty tln.1 it give While vet it lives? I've just finised the book, Anne of Green Gables, a book by a Canadian girl, L. M. Montgomery, of Prince things so freckles and the green eyes and my skinniness. But 1 cannot imagine that re'd hair away. It will be my lifelong sorrow." But in spite ot the hated red hair, the freckles, the wiucy dress, "terri- ble the heartbreak look- ing out of her eyes, and the lack of folks Anne had yet boundless com- pensations. A Dame o' Dreams had been present at her christening and had touched the child's eyelids with' "magic fingers, so that all she saw took on subtle and beautiful meaning, and had the power of making her happy in her own thoughts." When5.-conditions' were not ideal Anne "just went to work and imag- PJdward Island, who takes her -story ined." In the train after leavin to an American publisher in Boston. But be that as it may. It doesn't af- fect Anne's value and in her own way sht; is quite as lovable as "Re- becca of Sunnybrook Farm." The lat- ter has the advantage of having as her biographer u charming woman who has followed the art of letters far a lifetime and the style of the first story suffers somewhat in 'compari- son. The character of Anne 'herself is done delightfully, and we wish there were more of her kind to brighten this dull old world. We, of course, remember the his- toric instance c.f Betsey Trotwood'a displeasure at discovering that her nephew David Copperfield was not 'a girl. In this case the tables are re- versed, and poor (Arine's story of Green Gables, the country home Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert, was' threatened with a speedy ending when it was found that she was not a boy. These two elderly people had sent to the orphan's home for a boy to adopt, and the neighbor who was entrusted with the commission, made a mis- take The story tells in an entertaining how Anne made a place for her- self at in spite of many disadvantages. The greatest of all, according to Anne's own view- point, was her red hair. "Now, you see why I can't be perfectly happy." she said as Matthew Cuthbert drove her home. "Nobody could, who has red hair. I don't mind the other the Orphan's Home she Bought ev- eryone was looking at her and pity- ing her, so imagined she. had on a beautiful pale blue silk dress, and a big hat all flowers and plume, and a gold watch and kid gloves and boots. This imagining or "getting as she called it, applied to every- the tree-lined avenue into, "the white way of the pond into "the lake of shining wa- and then bestowed on her a "beautiful rose leaf complexion and lovely starry violet eyes." But its power rather failed when it came to the "lifelong the red hair. "Did you ever know of anybody -whose hair rod when she was -young but t" be another colour when she Anne asked anxiously one day and when Marilla Cuthbert- mer- cilessly poor Anne said "Well that is another hope gone. My life is a perfect graveyard of buried hopes." When Marilla remonstrated with her on not saying her prayers, Anne said, "You'd find it easier to be bad than good if you had red hair. People who haven't Jed hair don't know what trouble is. Mrs. Thomas told that God made my hair red on purpose, and I've never cared about him since." Anne was frankly de- sirous of being beautiful and "would rather be pretty than as she herself said being feminine to the In time she did reach this and other ideals, won the love of the Green Gables folk, attained to high honor in learning, was accounted "so stylish looking" in spite of the once despised hair, and kept, through all, her power of 'make wonderful Ailadin's lamp so precious. If you care at all for the stories of Kate Douglas Wiggins and "the simple creed of you will like I think. "Anne spell- ed with an c. .It makes such a difference. It looks so much nicer. A-n-n looks dreadful, but A-n-n-e looks 60 much more distinguished." But if you chance to read it on a Sunday afternoon, don't let another member of the family dip into it before you do, or you may be dis-, appointed in your afternoon's "good read." The days of the "dim. religious light" are past, so far as modern church architecture is concerned. The ideals of the Dark Ages are not those of and this thought came to me on seeing the interior of the., new Presbyterian, church for the first- time the other evening. "Splendid said a man at my elbow looking admiringly at the bip; electroliers with their blaze of light which penetrated every corner and cranny. One could not disagree, for the lighting IS excellent and turns the colored glass windows into things of beauty and brings out the delicate green tinting oi the walls. It's all a matter of taste, but I must own that a little less light- suits me better in a church and my thoughts would go back to an old cathedral, well known in other days in' one. of our own., Canadian cities where at Evensong in the long summer twilight all was hushed and quiet, and seem- ed -in the dim growing darkness to hold peace 'within its walls. The lengthening shadows crept softly through the stained glass windows, past the little children pictured there, past the aureoled Christ with the gentle face and across the sculptured figures, of his parents. The organ played softly in'the gathering gloom and the blended voices of the Sis- ters in the hidden choir loft, remind- ed one irresistibly of that "choir in- visible, whose music is the gladness of the world." It was inevitable to yield one's "self to the comfort and soothing of the darkness, the peace and the gentle insistency of the mu- sic, and one said a little prayer and slipped out again perhaps somewhat better for the quiet hour. M M M M Here's another little squib that the Billikin controversy has brought forth in Toronto. The .booklet sent out by Eyrie's .of the city with tempt- ing things as Easter gifts, devotes a page to Billikin brooches, cuff links and -what not. The fad in that form, has not reach- j ed here as yet, but we may expect j it unless Inspector Archibald drives i Billikin from the land. i STANDARD (registered) To the God of Things-as-They-Might- Be.

SOCIAL AND PERSONAL On the front page of the Edmonton Saturday News last week were three photographs taken by Mrs. Bulyea of Government House. One showed His Honor the Lieutenant Governor behind his fine team of horses, Ax-; tell -and Altell, another "the the summer house of the family on Okanagan Lake and the third a moonlight scene on this same lake. The pictures are well taken and very following paragraph from "Peggy's" column in the News will be of interest to us all. Indeed the First Lady of Alberta is an all round accomplished woman, being without doubt the most- graceful skater in Edmonton, an expert rider, a fine amateur photographer as her pictures this week demonstrate, and .having a great many other accomplishments which on account of her great modes- ty the general world is not aware of.

TWO ONLY No. 1 EMPIRE Citizens Have a Meeting To Discuss School Problem Coleman, AHa., March meet ing of the ratepayers of Coleman pub lie school -district was held last nicht al the school house to discuss a mat- ter which is full of significance to the town and to the community at large. It v.-as known that the trust- ees have been ior some time past] wrestling with the problem of increas ed accommodation for the ever in- creasing number of children who have overcrowded the present school build- ings. Some preliminary steps were but before doing anything de- finite the trustees considered it ad- visable to call the ratepayers er and have the matter discussed and pronounced upon by them. Before the meeting was called to order plans for an addition to the present school building were laid on a table and were examined by quite a number present. The meeting was not very largely attended. It was presided over by Alex. Cameron, chairman of the school board of trus- tees. Cameron explained the oh- ject of the meeting. The trustees had for the past winter been 'consid- ering plans for enlarging the school. Coleman's juvenile populations had grown so fast and the attendance a.t school was so large that in order to comply with the requirements of the law something would, have to be done immediately to alleviate the" present congested state of things. The prim ary classes which were taught in the smaller building showed an enroll- ment of eighty-five under the care one teacher. This was only made possible by arranging a double shift, about half of the number of children attended in the forenoon and the other half in the afternoon.

Mrs. Eylands looked very well in a champagne voile and Miss Macbeth helped in the tea room. The polished table was centred with car- nations, and the flowers in the draw- ing room were very lovely indeed, and called forth much delighted com- ment. A large bowl of pink and cream roses was specially fragrant. Miss Helen Mewburn gave some mu- sic during the afternoon which was very enjoyable. This new part of on.

MAKING A SITTING HEN'S NEST It may be considered a simple mat- ter to make a. nest for a sitting hen. When the hen sits in the early spring however, when nights frequently are cold, often to freezing or below, a good nest is needed to protect the eggs, that is. to sufficiently hold the heat from the hen's body. Often whole oatcbes have been spoiled bv SUPPLIES of which we have a complete and wide sortment We can now supply tkose who were ask- ing for Two-Hole Laundry Stoves I Let us Quote you on Metallic Roof- J V ing and Siding SAILOR'S BRAVERY WAS RECOGNIZED London, April Board of j Trade has received from the Can- adian Government gold watches, sil- i ver cups and money for members of the crew of the steamer St. Helena, in recognition of the rescue of the crew of .the Canadian barque 0. S. Bergen at Maitland, N. S., on Nov. 9th last year. C, W.Cray The Oldest Established Hardware in the City 4 spector had pronounced against this plan and now that spring was here, the attendance was sure to be increas ed. Another teacher will be secured at once and the trustees had engaged the club rooms of the Presbyterian Church -as a temporary arrangement. The speaker then made reference to the plans for the remodelling of the present buildings. The plans which seemed most suitable and which were the ones open Tor inspection by anv one present would provide for four more roams, and would mean an out- lay of almost This would make six rooms in all and while some would question the advisability of constructing- so large a building, four of the rooms would be used immed- iately and possibly five would be in use within a year. The board were looking forward to the time when high school work would be done in Coleman. The town had grown fast and was the largest of those in the Alberta side of the Pass. ad- ditions would likely be made to the population in the near future and it was only reasonable to expect that with the support of the other villages in the vicinity, there would be a de- mand for a work of this character ere many months. In regard to the financial side of the scheme it was proposed to issue debentures payable in ten years. Thej assessment would fully warrant this. The present assessment roll worth of taxable property in the village and school district as against last year, which was a marvellous increase in one year. This would be substantially increased by possibly more within a short time as it is under- stood that the McGillivray Creek Coal and Coke Co. would erect a tio- ple and other parts of their plant immediately west of the town. The present income of six and one-half mills amounted to over The cost of maintaining the school at present was which includ- ed as payments on debentures. In the general discussion W. H. Hayson thought that four rooms would be ample for the present but was not greatly opposed to tbe scheme. F. G. Graham explained that the new building would have a basement with cement floors, would be heated with steam and have mod- ern plumbing throughout. Edward Eacott asked about the mand for a school in West Coleman, or Slavtown. The chairman stated that the council fully anticipated that the government would cut a road through the rock ledge this sum mer and thus the main street would be connected up to the burg to the west, which would doaway with the plan for a school out there. Mr. Xeal asked about the possibil- ity of the government turning the plans -down. The chairman said that the plans of the enlarged building would of course have to meet with the approval of the department of ed- pectcd no material opposition to thoj present scheme to the splendid j splendid standing of the school dis- .trict. It was comparable to a son with security for nearly a mil-i lion dollars and wanting to raise; at the bank, Three financial j hnri already written him garding- the possibility of advancing a loan. This indicated that Colo- man's securities were gilt edged. After some further discussion it was moved by J. C. McDon- ald and seconded by H. Gate that this meeting of the ratepayers of Coleman approve of the proposal of the trustees to increase the school building accommodation in the man- ner indicated. The motion carrto'. unanimously. the owner making a nest of coarse straw or hay through which the cold air reached the eggs. A clean box with tobacco stems or lice killing powder sprinkled in the bottom, and then bedded thickly with fine hay, makes the bestvjnest for the early sitter. It should-; be made deep and round with the bot- tom not too flat, but flat enough so that the eggs will not roll too tight- ly against each other. If. it is severely cold when the hen goes off the nest every day to eat and drink, a piece of blanket may be put over the egjrs, especially during .the first ten days of the incubating The Fanner.
