Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 15, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta The Educatioii or Girls Mzc Essay Wrtticn by Miss Dora E. NinifflMis. One of the flUl)joets ^ivon for the Standard VII. essny conii�et'itian at I he lieihbridse and District A�ricui-tiirnl P'alr Ihis year was "The ICd-uiatioii of OirJs." The first prize was Won by Miss Dora Niminons, the VoiinK dauH'h'ter of HoUt. Nimmons of this city, 'iihe Ilorald is publisiiing the essay in full nnd would draw the ntten>tion of ita readors, not only to the l,nngunge and construction of the I'ssuy, l�wt also to iha splendid grnsp of this dilDcul't subject by one who is so young in years. "A countevtancc in which did nu>9t awe�?t KKorM, ns sw�;et." Wordsworth has in ilhoso tow linns pictured for, us an id^al voina"; the oountonancc which portrays a lovely past and n fccautirnl future; not Ijovc-ly and Iwnutiful in api�oarantd that she may be enabled to look nt tijc facts of life with n clwr iind son.sible view nnd thus (j.? fittorl to cope with later M Mn of Sir WilMd Laurier This is how Mr. T. P. O'Connor, the witity Irishman who recently vls-itwl Toronto, and who has boon the pioneer in the joui-nnlisin of ance.-dote, sketches Sir Wilfrid Laurier in P.T.O., his new weekly. After siJoak-ing of tlKJ core of government, Mr. O'Connor snys: "And now whot manner of man is he who bears upon his shoulders this A'tlanteon burden? The best description 1 ever heaid of Sir Wilfrid Lau -rier w�.s given to me 'by a very interesting CunaxJinn iJcr-ionnlity. Mr. Uoss, who was ior many .\ears prinie minLster of the j>rovincc of Ontario. 'Sir Wilfrid I�uricr,' sai"i this sour, gnarlenranee of Sir Wilfrid Ld down from the walls of a imc'diaeval Fi'ench earth. You couW never nvistukc him for any -thing but a man of French blooil, iVor could you, ut the same tim.', ever take him for a modsm French -man. With all his 'ntensel.v progr.!s sive and 'bwad spirit, Sir Will'ritl 'looks the man of the chateau and of the 18'1'h cmlury; tljo Frenctimun Iw-irn bsfoje the Fi-cnoh i-evoiut'iort; one who hflfl oxchang'Wl ic-inignly nt some of TAIIaynind's jukes on 'tbe gullHyil'it.v of mankind. Im'.igiue a vory toll, a very slight, vii;w jaliiKiBt a lM)ny li'SurB; iiiiugiiic u lace exactly the .same-that is to say, long, narrow and bony-ami you will have some idea of what Sir Wilfrid Ijiurier is like in tiie fles'h. There is 4iot a spare ounce on that liody, which, n'avei'theless, seem�) us utci't, active and enduring n.s that of .�some r you might fancy that he was a This great ruler lives with Ilia sini-brill'iant wit and encyctopBodist-one 'plieity of u professional m'.in with a of the (and that prepared the Fivncli moflost income.

And there is about the whole man a certain ifimnefi.s aiivl precision which are almost suggestive of France and of tli..' 18th cciKuri'. Mo di\>sso� vith a iJci-foct appropriate  I typical modost Canadian house-with noss to his figure, hi.s face, aii'd even his position. Tlio cnnt is usually a frock coot with spacious tails, the wmistcoat-if I renuiin.'or rightly-is �om�Jvhal low cut; nnd his collars are, in their way, as prominent and roiuiiriialilo as those of Mr. Olad . stone. Like Jfr. Gladstone's, Sir Wilfrid's CDilnrs are stnnd-up, iin  meriKie, slightly old-fashioned in cut its two or threo stories, Its long verandah, its goneral im;)ro.ssion of lightness, airiness �smd comfort. Here It wn.s-ill this small mtxlel house- that there dwelt a mnn who rules soiix! millions of iii&ii and one of ihn vast,?st and most powerful countries in the world. .Suoh � ha'bitation be-siie.iks the character nnd also the carpt?r of the man. I 'thing can l)o ol>ta'inod it j lai'ge-as is the mouth usually of an is necessary that she have good,!oraitor-mobile, slightly pursod. The teaclicrs-'teachers that she can re-B|)ect and love, nnil ye-t who will lead her onward with a gentle, firm, and kindl.v rule. It is'ble to have a perfect | woman without physical health. This ! is a |>art, and a very important i�art of education. Turn her loose in the fields and let nature teach her, softening her heart and endowing her with the queenly possessions of health and strength; a true beauty of nvind and boj' soem naturally fttlod. Music, drawi -ing, painting, or in fact any one subject might bo taken up, with the - purpose of perfecting herself in 'that art. In this way she will bo not only educating and strengthening hor self but she will lie trul^- advancing in life. In the rosult of such an education as this, we may renlizo our id^al woman. "Hig'h Finance is. not confuted entirely to Wall street," said John E. Wilkio, Chief of the Socrot Service "I naw an example of it the other day that made ino dizzy.

To Take the PULSE of ALBERTA Put Your Finger on COLERIDGE! It is one point in all of Alberta at which you can definitely determine the major portion of incoming and outgoing freight, because all trains or cars bound East or West on the main line of the C. P. R-stop at Coleridge and are checked up. All trains or cars en route for Southern Alberta, Crow's Nest, Kootenay, Washington or Oregon are made up at Coleridge, the Railway Gate to the Great Southern Country. Of the greater Canadian West, with Winnipeg on the East and Vancouver on the West, Coleridge is at the same time the geographical and railway centre. Put Your FINGER on Coleridge at any time during the year, and you can form a good idea ot what ia 'doing" in the outer circle of this GREATER WEST. So much, then, for the railway attributes of the com-ing CHICAGO OF OUR CANADIAN WEST -a country with a future without parallel. COLemOGE AS A /M/LWAY C�NTR� IT I^M. C OPYf^fCH T A PPU�?)

Yon can buy to-day at the first price on very easy terms, a small cash pnynient down nnd the remainder easy. If, for instance, you buy a $150 lot to>day, paying a small amount of cash down, it is a safe estimate that before you make your last payment the price will be more than doublet).
