Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 7, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta IKIDAY? APItlL 7, THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGfc' FIVE National Preparedness does not come from guns and dreadnoughts alone, but from men who are fit for the day's work. The making of men is a question of food and rational exercise. You can't build stalwart men out of an unbalanced "ration," Shredded "Wheat Biscuit contains all the material needed for building the perfect human body. It is the whole wheat grain made digestible by steam-cooking, shredding and baking. One or more Shredded Wheat Biscuits for breakfast with milk or cream makes a man fit for work or play. It is ready-cooked and ready-to-serve. Made in Canada, GEN. LESSARD RETURNING FORTS DESTROYED Toronto. April fi.-A laliln from 1/Onilon to the lOveuliig Telosrnm tonight sa.vs that Gen.

He is an actor of till modern school, and though his career has really just comineneoil ho .las licorod sucji-ELfts In various Canod-iiui and Aiueric;-.!! theatrical .successes.

At the Empress 'I'heatrc goers will have their storo of reminiscences lapped by the World Film Corporation's release "As Ye Sow" tonight at tho Kmpross, in which Alice Brady appears as the star. The play was written about ten years ago by the rtnv. .lohn Snyder, and produced with conspicuous success by Brady and Orlsmer. Tho fact that a clergyman had written a successful play, attracted considerable attention at tlio time-tho thing was certainly uncommon, If not unliiiio. Clergynien by mental environment shoukl bo good playwrights-thftt Is to say, their intimate knowledge of tho actualities of life, should nuike them Judges of, the value of dramatic material. in "As Ye Sow" we have tho terrible fato of Iho unrepontont profil-gato giving us an Impressive warn-i ing. Dora Loland, played by Alice ! Brady, Is a girl of good family, persuaded Into an tnisultablo nnu'rlugo by a country scapegrace, having a chunco of BuccoBs by straightforward raonns lu New York, but casting that chance aside. Profligacy converts hini Into a bad husband and father; and he goes awuy to soa. Years afterward hfl Is wrecked and Is rescued by his brother, now a clergyman, and about to marry a widowed girl of whose ox-act antecedents lio Is ignorant. Tlio girl Is Dora, But tho rosciie and ru-mrirof her husband aisarraneeH those plans.

It was found given' probably more "gratuitous time I that the team had already crossed ont� and trouble to the movement and received less tiianks for it than any other man. That is one noticeable thing about a movement of this description, it is a queer fact but it is a fact that though everyone is ready to profit by the jirice reduction it causes, yet there Is always a heavy percentage of able, bodied but cripple-minded men witli a strong right arm trestle in safety on the ties.
