Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 5, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PA6E15MHT THE LETHBRIDOE DATLT HERALD FRIDAY, APRILS. IMS VULCAN MAN A L! llTrom Our Own C"my(>si>on;1cnO Vulcan, Apr. 4.-Weather Londitions are still anil it does one good to see the farmers! working'on the laud again. Great, activity prevails and all of then) are optimist!? as to the crop this year. Survivor of Raid U was with great interest the writer Jiatened to a survivor of an air raid over London. England. Ho is a resident of our town and as his experiences are so recent ii will be interesting lor them to he printed.' He was living with his parents in \orth London and he was sleeping in a bedroom at the top of the house which was three storeys up. The raid took place in '.ho early hours of the morning ami a homo was dropped which struck the extreme edge of the roof. Needles* to say it splintered the honse_ bringing hint down to the bottom with bed. furniture, plaster and beams. He claims ho never lost consciousness, although his collar bone was broken, also his ankle and ;irm. He also sustained n �.itvero wound ;>r the li:sck of the neck His njother and sister were fortunately unharmed owing to being under n largo table in the dining room below, the table acting as a shield. The young man claims that there is no ]�lacc. like Canada anil we certainly agree with him. Spring Rush The spring rush of Americans has commenced and Vulcan is apparently well known, judging by the number of strange faces appearing in this town. i On Monday evening last week the members of the L.O.B.A. club gave a large audience a splendid and clever reproduction of "The Village Doctor," under the able supervision of Miss Belle Peace. ! It was a treat to see '"Mrs. Crane" nnd "Jane" in ihefr quaint attire and the "Doctor" acted his part very well considering that he was on (he stage practically all evening. It was hard for the critic to single any one person out. as everybody gave of their best and the  large audience showed their appreciation of the "home talent." The members themselves enjoyed acting Just as much and everybody seemed to be proud that this small town possessed such a supply of talent. At the, conclusion of the play a musical program was arranged and several ;TOcal numbers were fir-,' on. Miss Annie Smart rendered three I Scotch solos which were received splendidly by the audience. Miss Levins Wilson contributed a solo as did Miss Belle Peace. The last named al- ; so gave us some recitations. Mr. Dav- j is supplied us with music which would � 'have been-a credit to a "Jazz Band/' Mr. H. T. Steed, one of our farmer cittcens, returned to Vulcan last �Mk and brought a bride with him. We attend best wishes to the happy Couple. Death of Mrs. Murphy It is with regret we have to ail- ! nounce the death of Mrs. Murphy of : Vulcan. Her illness extended for quite � a while and during the last few- weeks ) the immediate relatives knew that her | life was nearly at a close. The funeral arrangements were conducted by Geo. L. Jacques of Vulcac, and inter-merit took place at the Vulcan cento-; tery . We extend our heartfelt sym- j pathies to the family and relatives. 1 The income Lux forms have kept ev-1 erybody in town busy these last few '� days, and though they were supposed , to be completed by the 1st of April, yet ; there still remains a large percentage * to do yet, owing to shortage of forms. Vulcan is quite up to date in regard j to the "great allied drive" and bulle- j tins arrive regularly every day here reporting the progress of the allied troops. There are rumors of another brick building in town. We shall soon have our fire insurance rates decreased to about one-half and the fire brigade will be given notice that their services are no longer required. Several farmers have reported that they have commenced seeding, one CORRECT THE ACT Ottawa, April 4.-Notice of amendments to the Women's franchise bill was given In the house of commons tonight by Sir Robert Borden, tinder the bill as presented to the house, the franchise granted to women in certain provinces would he wider than that already possessed by men. The amendment seeks to remove the differences. It provides that the qualification of women shall be the name ns would entitle any person to vote at a Dominion election In the province in which women seek to vote..  ! man having about 100 acres already in. Harry \V. Noel, proprietor of tho Imperial hotel here, is still trying to figure out where all the people come from and how to find room for them all. He always carries a worried look around train time and does the best ho can to satisfy everybody. We hear that quite a number of our young people are contemplating marriage in the near future. We shall soou have to use an S. O. S. call for siziglo young men. as we are getting acarcc around these parts. Farm laborers seem to be very plentiful these times, judging by the number of men hanging around Vulcan these days. .Every train sees more arriving and Vulcan certainly is known far nnd wide and wc hope it will never lose Its reputation. Easter Services Last Sunday evening the Rov. A. It. j Shrag delivered a splendid Easter j Sermon to a fairly good audience and j the church was beautifully decorated i with flowers. A specially augmented : choir was on hand and pave a fine rendering of "There is a Grceu Hill" under the direction of Miss Belle, Peace. i H. C. Jones, accountant of the Bank of Hamilton. Vulcan, received a hur-j ried call to Dundas. Ontario, owing to ; the sudden death of his father. We{ extend our sympathies to him in hit, sad bereavement. An auction sale of horses and cattle took place yesterday on the old Hoad-ley ranch near Vulcan and the owners, Messrs. Stewart. Bros, were highly pleased with the result. The total amount realized was HOyOOO, and at this time of the year the prices were i exceptionally good. j Seeding has been delayed a little; owing to th� ground being frozen a little, but It will be recommenced very > soon again. Details of the baseball meeting held �� are not yet to hand, but will appear next resort Another List of Attractively Priced Quality LIEUTENANT HARRISON, JR- Harrison "and hef little son leaving Investiture, - carries his deed lather's V.

Gillies from his home to the hospital at Exhibition Camp was returned by Coroner Bateman's jury.

OUR DEFENSE In the spring we may be attacked as any moment. Toxic poisons pile up within us after a hard winter, ana we feel "run-down," tired out, blue and discouraged.

Yob cau obtain an alterative extract from Blood root, Golden Seal, Stone and Queen's root, Cherry bark, rolled into a sugar-coated tablet and sold by most druggists, in fifty-cent vials, aa Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. This blood ionic, in tablet or liquid form, is just what yon need lor '' Spring Fever," for that lack of ambition. It will fill you full of vim, vigor and vitality. Lwosat, Ostario.-" When my little aughter was live years old her liver was so sluggish that I feared .she might be troubled with habitual constipation. I had read a i great deal about Ductor Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and decided to try it with her, giving her small noses. I found that it not only helped her liver tint it also proved to be a splendid tonic, as well. It, was such a splendid medicine "biit I would never hesitate to give It to her again if she needed it, and 1 take pleasure in recommending it to other mothers whose little ones senm to need a liver regulator and blood maker."-Maa> Lolisa Beach, lias ANNIVERSARY SERVICES ARE HELD AT FRANK (From Our Oton Correspondent) Blalrmore, April 3.-March went out with its usual lion-like attitude on Saturday and Sunday.
