Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 18, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta fe<\ I- J-8 THE LETHBRTDfeE DAlLlT tiERALP Friday, April 18, 1913 GUNPOWDEIi D Oven Results From A Gumey-Oxford Range The value cf a stove to a woman is measured by the successful results in cooking obtained from the oven. With this primary object in view, stove experts have invented means of absolute control over the distribution of heat to every part of the range.- TheGurney-Oxford is constructed with a Divided Flue that carries the heat to the back vof'the. stove through two different divisions. By this scientific arrangement the two back lids of-the stove are given equar cooking value ,and the oven is thoroughly surrounded by a steady even heat. "With "ta'GUmey-Oxford, it is never heces-sary to open the oven door several times-dur-ipg^the, baking of a pan of biscuits, to turn them around next the heat. 'Biscuits, pastry, cake, or bread all bake evenly, rise evenlyj and brown evenly without any attention whatever from the cook. ;-t'A'.simple device aptly called the Economizer regpilates the exact temperature of the oven byiujoving a small leyer around a series of isix: nojicbes; A woman soon learns the impor-tJiitt<^iyaiIae.,'of each notchi' one;;Of which im-litne'diatelyr:checks the hottest fire and keeps it loyr.'until she requires it again.

Lithographed letters bearing the addresses of some prominent, supporters of the suffrage movement were sent out onMondaV to-a number of militants, inviting them to attend a private confldential gathering. A blank space, filled up, in hand-writing, announced that the object of the meeting was to consider what steps could be taken to bring about the reprisals, upon "the Standard" for its persistently hostile attitude toward militancy. The reprisals considered were the setting on fire of the print-jjig and publishing offices of the journal, which are in Shoe Lane, a narrow aller, running northward from Fleet St". Realizing the terrible risk of life, apait from the destruction of property that must attend such an occurrence, some of the persons who learned of it, disclosed their conspiracy. The crime was to be committed within a fortnight.- Uags, soaked in petrol were to be used as -firo balls, and every- endeavor was to be made to insure the fire getting a rapid and sure hold of the buildmgs.

NCIDEN GERMANS FLAGBANTIlY MOCKED IN "AUSACE" AND OTHER PLAYS London,, April iS-^Harold Spencer, the well ktJown London journalst, who was-recently in Francs, writes to the Uaily Ne-ws as follows : "The astonishing fracas between the French and 'Germans at Nancy has now been followed by an iffair at Grenoble. ' - ,. ' "These incidcitts cause no surprise to anyone who has recently visited France. They are just what I should e.xp^ct after .witnessing a play 'at 'Alsace.' There you have every type of Genmaa openly and flagrantly held iip to ridicule on the Frencli stage. The caricatures; presented by most skilful artists, are always put before the audience in the most aggressive and odious shapes. "The same plays are being acted on the frontier, and although there are many thousands of German residents in France who live quiet and peaceful, with their neighbors, yet these perpetual stage, pictures, deliberately permitted by th^ French government, must have a very,- disturbing mental and moral effdct upon the French people." Will Take .Precautions Paris, April 18.-The official report of the Nancy incident has not yet reached the ministfy of the interior, but it is clear that the authorities intend io take every possible precaution, especially on the frontier, to prevent a recurrence of such affairs.

It is reported that some fujictionaries" responsible tor public order at Nancy -will be punished tor lack of energy. � big c.e; convention Boston, April:,. 17.-Secretary . of State- Bryan, viiwonc of the hundred spenl:er.s fcheduled to address the twenty-sixth international Christlaa Endeavor convention, to meet in Los Angeles, July 9 .-.ito 14. next, according to the programmfe. announced yesterday at the soolety's;head
