Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 17, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDQE, ALBERTA, SATURDAY, APRIL 17, INI. EARLY DAYS OF THE RN.W. M.P. Col.

It 'was not west Mounted Police force and the J uncommon, said Colonel Steele, for part it had taken in life- the traders to take pot shots at the Colonel Steele, who was received drunken reeling Indians from inside with loud and prolonged the fort. 'DROVE OUT LEGITIMATE TRAD- ERS on legitimate traders had come along who sold boxed aminuni- j t on to the Indians. To this the American whiskey traders had ob- i j jected and they had organized a j f itary force known as the "Spitseef i Cavalry" from the Spitsee river in I Alberta, now known as the High Ri- ver. This force had driven out the traders. Subsequently thanked the Winnipeg Canadian Club very cordially kind reception.! He came before them with much tre- pidation and trusted that they woul.1 bear with his imperfections. There were many others who knew as much about the subject as he did and to whom the honor was due. There was Colonel Irvine sitting on his right, Mr. Mitchell, C. N. Bell and many others. TERRIBLE CALCULI It was erroneous to suppose, as. legitimate many did suppose, that the wild and j frjentj-ui woolly west had always been in Un-, HUmonton were whut were Call. cle Sam's dominions and that in Bri- j tish territory nothing wrong could ever take place. It had requircfd the Wolseley expeditionary force to make travel safe along the north trail towards the forts on the Sas- katchewan and thence down along the hills of the Rocky Mountains. IX THE EABLY DAYS But west of Moose Jaw it was still unsafe for anyone to travel without an armed escort. If they ventured they stood a good chance of losing i ed the Drunken Lakes, on the shores j of which dreadful things had occurr- j ed. Massacre and bloodshed had I reigned supreme. Among others Pia- j pot's frightful massacre of old men and women ami children near the sit> i of Lethbridge was described by thu j speaker. had finally suc- cumbed in a fight with Jerry Potts, a Scotch horrible slaugh- ter taking place. Potts himself scalp- ing 19 Indians. Later on Potts had become a capable and highly respect- their scalps. The Hudson's Bay ed interpreter. company had had to give up Chester field House after losing a lot of mo- ney there. Old Bow fort on the Bow Ic.ver above Calgary had also been given up. The Blackfeet and Crees were continuously at war in the neighborhood of Edmonton. The first time he to Edmonton he slept in a room in which there were still the blood stains of a Blackfeet chief who had been murdered a cou- ple Of years previously. A large What ha-d really made the British j government hurry up and take over the country was the terrible masss.cre in the Cypress Hills where a whole tribe of Indians was slaughtered by whiskey traders from the south. Col- onel" Steele then described the crea- tion of the Mounted Police force in the east and their journey to the west. He himself had come with the first division via the Dawson road and the north-west angle, the other' What Stone In the Bladder and Inflam- mation of the Bladder The kidney always. The kidneys should filter urine and urea (or waste matter) from the blood. When they do not, urea stays in the blood and is changed into uric acid. This uric acid inflames the bladder, and worse still, forms Stones or Calculi. The only possible way to cure these serious bladder troubles is to cure the kidneys. Gin Pills Cure They act directly on the kidneys them heal and enable them to filter the blood properly. This prevents uric acid being formed at all. With no ex- cess of uric acid, the bladder is no longer irritated and stones cannot be formed. Money Back Every bor of Gin Fills is sold with a guarantee of money back if not just as represented. Get six boxes at your dealer's for take them if you feel that they have not helped you, return the empty boxes and get your money.

Everyone who lives in the neighborhood of Hamilton, Ont. knows about the strange case of Mr. Herman. For a year, he puzzled Hamilton physicians. They said he had "Inflammation of theBladder.5' But all their treatment did him no good. Two and a half boxes of GIN PILLS (at a cost of 50 cents per box) did what the doctors couldn't. Messrs. The National Drug and hopeless but my wife noticed in the paper one Pills had done for others, and sent for a box Chemical Co., Toronto. I cannot express myself strongly enough when I speak of what Gin Pills lave done for me. When I remember how I suffered not so long ago from Kid- ney and Bladder trouble, and how now am healthy and well and strong and able to do a full day's work, I feel I should speak tell other sufferers of my experience .and of the wonderful merits of Gin Pills. Something over four years ago I was taken down withwhatihedoctors c-iiltxi inflammation of the bladder, intense pains in the back and loins, great pain and difficulty in urinating, and agony at times confined me to bei for three or four days at a time. Poultices were laid across my back and front, and by laying For.over a year I continued to get worse, and the doctors could do nothing _to relieve or cure me. My case seemed i___ 1..-J. f...... daywliatGin j, w wa. to tTjr find sec if they would help me. From the very first I noticed and felt that Gin Pills were doinjf me good. The pain was relieved at once and the at- tccks began to come at longer intervals, and hope that per- haps I might be cured returned to me once more. __ I continued talcing the pills for about six weeks, and then to my surprise and delight, the stone I sent you some time ago, come away from me and my pain stopped. I continued to take the pills for a short time longer, and rapidly re- gained health and strength. It is now three years since Gin Pills cured me, I have had no return of the trouble and I have not lost a day's work on'account of it since. You cannot understand how gratsful we are for Gin Pills. There is not the slightest doubt that they saved my life, and we recommend them to anyone who complains of pains in theback or bladder. Yours gratefully, JOHN HERHAST. 513 James St. North, Hamilton. HZBMAS in a certain position I could get relief and then gst up go to work, although freqnenily I would have to leave my work before nine o'clock and return home to bed. The" pain was greatest in the region of the bladder, and during the attacks, which occurred more and more frequently, amounted to unbearable airony, and I became so weak that I could not walk across the floor. We have known of this case for three years. We hesitated to tell all the facts to the public, until we were convinced, beyond the shadow of a' doubt, that Mr. Herman was is CURED they were FACTS. and is today a well, strong, active man.
