Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 19, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Mi �J VOLUMIE VI. TW15IjVE pages Lelhbridjfe, Alberta. Saturday, April 19, lt)i:5 PRICE-ITVK CENTH Number 109 G 2000 TREES 10 SCHOOL CHILDREN ON ARBOR DAY. Manager Dodman of Hudson's Bay Co. Announces an Innovation BEAUTIFY CITY Arbor Day in Lethbridge this Year Promises to be Rather Busy One For Arbor day, (May �), the Hudson's Bay company have decided to give away 3000 Norway Poplar trees to the school children of Lethbridge for, planting around; the school buildings, and their homes. This is an innovation in Lethbridge, and will be the means of beautifying the whole city. Several of the larger cities have had these donations made, but Lethbridge is the first city of its size to profit from the scheme. Mr. Dodman, manager of the'Hudson's Bay store, has received the assurance of the school board that they will lend their hearty co-operation and support. The trees will likely be distributed on May 7th and 8th. They are all the one vatietyj namely, the Norway Poplar, which is a very hardy tree, a rapid grower and beau-itifuUy symmetrical. It appears to combine more desirable .qualities than any other tree that has been placed on the'market. Its prigin is in doubt, as there is no evidence that it came from Nor-.way. It has been found to be decidedly hardier than the Carolina Poplar, which-is aii; extensively grown variety, and has never been known to winter, kill. to. the snow line in se-.vero seasons; . Many of the large retail- liouses in the East have followed the plan of giving trees away with purchases amounting to a certain amounti^tut, the Hudson's Bay arc establishing a; precedent m that their gift is absolutely unaccompanied by any condi-,tion of purchase. ' The trees are from four to aix feet in height and are bemg obtained from the Prairie Nurseries, Ltd., of Este-,van, Sask. .TOOK SEVEN YEARS TO KILL HIM � Hamburg, Germany, April 18.-Slow .�working snalte venom was tho cause of the death of Karl Hagenback, the famous animal collector, oa April 4, according to the-, physician who at-, tended him.'
