Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 4, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta ;PAGE.SIX T H 15 LE T H BRID G E D AI hX HERA LD TUESDAY, APRIL A, 1916 "Nothing But Leaves" Not Tea Leaves intermixed with Dtist, Dirt and Stems but all Virgin Leaves. .\ir. I'embei'ton DiUiug. tlu^ airman candidate who was recently elected to I'urliament, wearing his airman's liresi! during his election campaign. He lias been stirring up the aerial defence service. WHKK the Canadian Pacific Rall-.'riy was but a promise unfulHiled, and at the time when "Section Fifteen and -aection B" were live spots, and the Big Men ot ibe early- seventies gathered together. It was at "Flahen}-'s," Port Arthur, they met. Flaherty's door iwas bis a'i4 wide and hospitably open lat al! times and seasons. Flaherty .himself, big bodied, big minded, and big hearted, standing in the doorway 'of his popular hostel, used to wag his Ihead �nanding" its first Eocial stamp. The times were rough lias railway timet* ever are), but nothing was ever said or done at Fla- herty's which wouldn't "paes" in any drawing room on the continent. Mr.". Flaherty was an e.xacting '!06te�s: many a big fellow came into lUe houst- roaring like a Hon-it being sheer exhuberance of life-but in two seconds the biggest and roaringst of them was reduced to a Iamb-like bleat: What a "mother" the genile voiced lady was to all the down-and-outs In those early days: They were unafraid," under Mrs. Flaherty's smile, for no request was ever refused and empty pockets were housed as wei-e the "sure pays" In ihos� pioneer days. The town Itself was a one-street-aJong-the-bay aftair. The woods name right down to the water's edge. "Jim Conmee's mail" made the orerland run to and from Duluth by dbga, and I hope someone has kept a photograph ot the old "Onlario Bank,' which blocked the highway, and like the Catholic Chnrch, was "built upon a rock;" D. F. Burl: and "young Ray," now- a dlsting-jished ciliieu and financier ot the new town. Port Arthur, ware bursers of the bank, which was ."the size of a minute," in those historic days. But ' "Flaherty's" hotel. "The Queens," it was called, was then the rendezvous of the Big Men who were building the Big Road. Not one of them, no matter where hn be to-day, but will remember the "little room" off the hall where these gigantic minds met to discuss way and means of the work. That little room with its horse-hair covered seats was a sort of "House-of-Parliament," there some of the big deals undertaken were laid out, plannen and shaped in that little room off the hall at Flaherty's, and during the solemn conclave, no ono could get past Mrs. Flaherty herself, v^io like a bird defending a nest of her young, would keep oft all and sundry, sendlnsr them to right and left, while (hs "millions" for the great wcvk Were "raised" la that littiu room fronting the bay. Outside in the hall, dressed In his Sunday best, '-'homas O'Hag^n was waiting for "news." Thomas O'Hagan being the editor of "The Sentinel," whose voice filled nil the spaces between Toronto and Winnipeg in those early days. Gentlemen, do you recollect Thomas O'Hagan, who ran what lie called "The big-gest weekly in all -N'awrth Amurica:" Well, if some were to uproot old files of "the Sentinel," 1 feel sure pickings for 'Forty Years Ago" to-uay might be found. It was at Flaherty's I first met the late Mr. Van Home, even then a colossus of the day. Mr. Colllngwcod Schrleber too haunted Flaherty's.. Marcus Smith and Jas. MIngaye were large factors in the engineering work undertaken aiid "Big Rory" Mr-l-�Dnan, with "Sam' Hazelwood; "Paddy" Purcell, Hugh Ryan and Alex. Livingston, the bridge specialist, and B. A. Stewart were also striking forms in the early seventies and the C. P. R. 1 remember seeinp Mr Ppr-.--.-. ^M''''". , 1 . With the late Frank Mobcrly, whose .iame should live while the railway nins. Frank Mobcrly was one of ;he titantlc figures of the C. P. R., und these 1 have mentioned, as many more, used to meet and "talk thliigs over" at Flaherty's. Many a laugh went round the ample board at Flaherty's. Infractions of the game laws took place in the big dining room too, but Flaherty and his Irish wit could meet, make and break laws with a wink, for "in-the-out-of season," an lie used to say in his droll way, "shure the best venison is only frogs' legs," and "frogs legs" it went down on the menu: There was a time when nothing stronger than coffee waa allowed by a paternal act, and then the cotfee" went to men's heads; but they were level heads, as has been proved since, for, wherever you go and find men at the Jiead of affairs generally, (juestion them .ojid you"ll llnd they "worked on the C. P. B. In the seventies;" Flaherty Is no more. Its genial owner and master and hoii; has been ;!athered to his forefathers, whom he used to boast "were kings in Ireland:" and who that has partaken of the hospitality at Flaherty's will deny that royalty descended with the line. Not you, nor I, who met at Flaherty's, -\ow-a-days when I go to Port .-irthur, once Prince Arthur's Landing, and "Flaherty's," I find a grander, gayer hostel risen upon the old site. The eye is charged by changes, great changes, for the C. P. R. fulfilled Its every pro'mise and made a great city there, but memory brings back to mind the warm-hearted Flaherty himself and hl.s smiling wife who to-day sleeps iu the little cemetery beyond the town, where, if you go to a prettily kept green spot you will find; 'Sacred Lo the memory iif .I.TiiH:;; and Ullnabetii Flaherty," greece will deliver ultimatum to huns about saloniki Athens, via Paris, .Vpril 2.-.Macedonian nienibera of the Greek purliti-inoiit today prnsciited to Premier Skouloudis a writloii demand for the protection of Saloniki against aeroplane raids.. The cabinet Is called up- on to .send a declaration to the central l.ower.s stating that any bombardment of Greek territory by aeroplanes will be considered as directly against Greece. Preiiiier Skouloudis accepted the document and promised to ipake the representations demanded. mm A BUSIiSS THE POS or Vv^hen Health Breaks llii' ciiiKSf is oflcii round Id lie improper luibit.s of livinf^ 5 - priiK'iptilly wninf4 etilin^'. 1 Many liiods, ospeciiilly wliilu I'lour protlucls, lacl< ;cei'-lain luict'ssiiry inincral ck-menls. phosplialc of ])ola.'ih etc. 'riiose viiluablo energizing tiienieiils are abundaiilly supplied by tiie field grains, iiiit llirown oiil in llie inill-i'nt,' process lo make liie flour wiiile.

Are you aware that an ointment applied to the skin is absorbed into the system just as surely as medicine that is swallowed? It is I You see, therefore, how necessary it is we should use a pure ointment; and the purest you can get for yourself and your children is Zam-Buk Dr. Scott, the great English little son's head and bands annlyst; says: "1 have ana- were completely covered lysed Zam-Buk. It is composed entirely of herbal essences; is free from tlie harmful mineral drugs ant* nnlmal fats found in ordinary ointments, and I have no hesitation In certifying its purity." There is nnotlicr reason why you should prefer Zam-. BuU. It Is of such II refined nature that it can penetrate lo the very seat of skin diseases; whereas ordinary olntmentp, owing to their coarse ingredients, remain on the surface skin. Skin diseases, like plants, have their "roots." Zam-Buk can get down to the very root of the disease, kill alt the germs and thus effect lasting cures. There Is nothing like It for ending eczema, old sores, eruptions, or any of the skin diseases which occur at times in every family. 'Proof, Mrs. A. J. Cameron of Mellta. Man., writes: "My with eczema, and the agony ho suffered with the burning and Irritation was terrible, 1 tried numerous ointments and medicinal $oaps, a|td h� was under doctor's treatment for some time, biit nothing Would cure him. One day a friend said "Wliy don't you use Zam-Buk"? I procured some and commenced applying It. After a -week's treat-ment I noticed an (Improve-meiit, and porscvcraiicc with Zam-Buk resulted In a complete and permanent cure." Mrs. Deason of Peterboro writes: "Zam-Buk healed a,bad cut on my little girl's foot, caused by broken glass." All druggists and stores. 50c. box or Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, for price.
