Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 9, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta S'MPSON 4 BtrCHANAM Publishera ALD : r E, SIMPSON W. A. BUCHANAN saBSCRIPTtOM: n Advauce  91.50 a year O nerwisa  92.00 a year ADVERTISlNa: Per Month  91.00 Per Inch USE THEN wax To-morrow tethbridga will �iijoy the privllage of ntertaininc the membora of the Arat Legialatura of Alberta, as veil aa the gentlemen who ait in the Houae of Commons and Senate at Ottawa aa representative of the people of Alberta. It behovca LetM>rid�e to give the entire party a rousing welcome. Let them Imow that this city is as wi awaked energetic and prosperous as any in the province. Oive the visitors the warm hand of friendship, show them about the city and vicinity and impress them with our location as the capital of Southern , AlberU. round into their ears, Orit and Tory, Cabinet Minister and member, the fact that Lethbridge must have a lands titles oAce. Show them where the C.P.R. intends building 7�s' high level Drid^e and point out the absolute necessity of the government a.ssisting in constructing a traffic bridge beneath the other bridge, os a.convenience to the people of this district. Keep Lethbridgc and its nee figure when it estimated its population at 18,000 or 20,000. Of course a ramble through the corridors of the hotels and on the C.P.R. platform would lead one to believe the population was as big as that of New York and probably that is what our dear friend, the Herald, is ct'iut ing in its estimate. The Edmonton Bulletin is be.^ion  ing to talk of the population north and south of Red Deer again. For goodness sake cut out the referun-'o to a division in the province. Let us be united and talk of the provini;e as it is, bounded on the south by the United States, the east by ."-'.is-katchewan, the west by Britisn Columbia and the north by tho Arcti few of the replies: "That the city buy and maintain a herd of 1,000 goats because there is never sickness in a family where a goat is." "That a law be passed restraining hens to their owners' premises, because hens use the next door porch for a chicken- run, but never lay eggs there." "That all the city's electric lights be made "to wink the hour, so that a man need not take his watch out in the winter." "That it be a misdemeanor to leave a gate open, bacause it's bad luck to close a gate aftef* anybody has left it open. "That every citizen be compelled to plant a rosebdsh before his house, to make the air sweeter." "That there be no brass street signs and that mirrors shall not be carried through the streets, because they reflect the sun into weak eyes." "That there be daily parades in summer to amuse the children." "Tiiat the city supply megaphones to street car conductors, so that deaf {passengers may not be carried past their streets." lire -sum. lie has at one time nuld us much as five thousand shares of this stock, all paid, and this is but one of nian,v in which he deals. What Ibo nl'it man get.s out of life it is hard to say. Year by year ho piles up money, compounding his interest time and again, and the only funds he is known to spcnh is ahat he pa.ys the authorities ever.v so often for keeping an tmcleonly dwelling. When Geo. Ham, the well known C. P. R. official, was in Nelson last week, a deputation waited upon him and urged in eloquent language that tbe C. r. R. should build an hotel in that city to acconKwiatc the tourist trade. George listened partiently to the harangue and at its close ro-uiarketl, "Well, boys, I don't think the V,. V. 11. can afford to put up an hotel here, but" and he put his hand in his poclet and pulled out an imitation 9100,000 bill given to him as an ad for Saskatoon and handed it to the leader-a( the deputation, am glad to contribute personally this amount towards the scheme. Nothing more wos said about the hotel. THERE IS MONEY TO JBE MAPE IN THE FOLLOWING; # 8 lots Bartlett street. A few weeks ago I copied a char -acteristic item from the Macleod Gazette but in sonte way or other credit was not given to that spirited weekly- and I am now burdened with its authorship. Here is what the St. Thomas Journal says: The following significant article from the Lotnbridgo Herald is cal -culatcd to make people here wonder whether Brer, Buchanan, so peaceful and genial when conducting the Journal here, has put on warpaint and cultivated muscle. Evidently there's trouble brewing: As the editor will be out of town for the next three days and fear of immediate physical damage has temporarily left him, we would like to insinuate in ^ mild manner and in gentle terms void of all intention to offend, that it is a blockhead fool or a d-n thin skinned scoundrel who thinks that the real knockers of Maoleod are not the persons who mismanage its affairs and events and ruin its fair reputation rather than this paper that is doing its utmost to raise the name of the town out of the sloth and mire that has for some time distinguished it, and induce its citizens to awaken to a knowledge of their duties and responsibilities. .$200 eac]i, may terms I 20 lots Asbmead street................................................$175 each, easy terms I 8 lots Glyn street......................................................$250 each, eiiny terms J  12 lots, Block 94........................................................... *126 each, terms  4 lots Bompas street......................................................1250 each, terms I 3 lots Bomins street................................................... 9275 t^ach, terms I 4 lots Asbmead street............................................^.......1250 each, terms 4 lots Pord street...............................................................$900, terms i 4 business lots.

Liberty or Death! Dcrry Walls; No Surrender! To Hell with the Pope!!! . Despatches in the papers indicate that the Southern Alberta expert -mental farm will be at Lethbridge, and that "380 acres of excellent land on the irrigation ditch" have bcu/i purchased. It looks at first sight as if a grave mistake had been made. Southern Alberta wants farm education along tho lines of dry farm ing. The veriest dolt of a farmer can grow crops in a sunny country with irrigation, but it takes an intelligent farmer to get results without irrigation. We do 'not think the people o Southern Alberta desire confirmation as the result of experiments with ir rigation. They want the results o experimenting in our prairie soil un der the conditions imposed by nature. Nine out of ten of our farmers will bo located upon farms where irrigation is impossible, and it is these men who should haye the ben-eflt of intelligent experimenting un der government auspices. The other tenth, on the irrigated lands, don't need it. Our people desire education on dry land farming, the same as in Kansas, Nebraska and other dry states, and it was for this object we had expected that the farm would have been started. An irrigated farm will no doubt make a better showing, but for practical results a "dry land:' farm thing wo need.-Medicine Hat News. GEORGE M. HATCH C. R.

There is room between Taber and tile Mountains for a dozen cities ns large un Denver and Omaha. Thor are resources in the country to ;iulld up tho cities. Medicine Hat will be one of them.-Medicine Hat News. UNNECESSARY EXPKNSE. Acute attacks of colic and diarrhoea come on without warning and prompt relief must be obtained. There is no necessity of incurring the expense of a physician's service in such cases if Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remed.v is at hand. A dose of this remedy vlll relieve tho patient before a doctor could arrive. It has never been known to tail, even in the most severe and dangerous cases and no family should be without it. Pur by all druggists.' sale Capt.- Deane haa arrived at C il-gary tp take command of the R. N. W. M. P. there. A picked team of ball players wended their way to Taber on Monday last to trj' conclusions with Talxtr snappy aggregation. The loca'sweut ddwn with five regular "Savages" and were unfortunate to lose thoi catcher llouk, in the early part of the game, he received a nasty cracK on the hand. The score at the en I of the ninth innings was 11-7 in favor of Taber. Following is the line-up: Lethbridge:-Ilouk c, Moore ).b Kenny c.f., I.f., Sb.; Barber 3b, C ; Bailey Sb., Peterson s.s., p.; Anl.u*-son p., S.8.; Scanlan r.f., c.f.; Bean-ley r.f., Davics I.f., c.f.

Houk received a nasty hit on tht: hand which put him out of the gam). Pincher Creek Echo:-The Crnn-brook protest in the lacrosse league match with Lethbridge was heard in Frank on Wednesday and the protest was sustained. Another match and perhaps two^ will be played to do -cide the championship. If Cranbrook wins the first one then that settles it, but if Lethbridge wins then a second match will have to be played. These will be the greatest matches ever played in AlbeKa, and as it was decided that they would have to be pla.ved on neutral ground it is up to Pincher Creek to get busy and see if one of them cannot be playod here. Mr. IT. .1. Skeith, tho I,etli-bridge delegate, was hero for an hour or so yesterday evening and visitetl our grounds and informed us th.ifc they were the best grounds he had seen. The dat^ of the first match will he either  the tSth or 20th of August. Fernie Free Press:-Lethbridge's ob jection to the Fernie grounds is not well founded. Tho game played here on July 4 may have been played on grounds slightly smaller than the regulation size, but a much larger size, quite up to the standard is a-vailable as used in former years front corner to corner. Lethbridge may rest assured of getting fair play if the game is brought to Fernie. More than that, Fernie ought to be in a position to offer better terms than any other town in the Pass, for ;t has a larger population to draw upon for gate receipts. A CHALLENGE. Messrs.
