Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 16, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, AUGUST 16,1918 THE LETHfifeffiGE DAILY IIERALD PAGE SEVEN MDIANSFIGHTLIKEAHUGE FAMILY OF BROTHERS; SOMEGOOD ANCEOOTES OF I HE RECENT FIGHTING |(J. F. B. Llvosay, Onnmllan ProBS CoiTOspontlent) With tho Canadian Forces in Franco, Aug. IB,-Tlio bettor one conios to know the Canadlona tho moro one realizes tho baud of brothers tlioy nro. Thero la no Jealousy between divisions and dlviHlons, brigade and brigade, or �battalion and battftlion. All have tlio highest admiration for tlio other follow and most modest conception o� tho value of their own particular job. Thoro is a total absonco of "swank," They have pride in their force and in tho intonso satisfaction that they are Canadians but there Is nothing personal about it. They are part and parcel of a wonderfully efficient machine,  each carrying on his a^ptted job in liumblenesB of spirit. Ancedotes of Battle The ancedote�^of battle that follow are garnered in a visit to two .units and are therefore typical ot.-the entire force. Tho diaries of battalion com inandors must teem with them, and in time those will be available to the Can adiaii people as a prlcoiless roebrd of a great feat of arms, ih'.tho meantime, such as those may. serve. All day Thursday when tho 'battle opened, great dlinculty was met in; aAvjinclng on our extreme loft. The nature of the ground and strength njid'depth of tho enemy defense maile- pt this a much harder nut to crack than the comparatively free-going over the prairie to'tho north. Quebec Fiahters Finally, It was decided that the only way to advance was to turn tho loft flank. A famous Quebec battalion was entrusted with tho task. Thoy had to take up their position in tho dark by tho aid only of the stars, maps and compasses.

Herbsman, Mr. Goiirlny of Toronto and Supt. Stem of The Chautauqua can nnderBtand the rtifriculty o^ the underlaUing. At 4.30 o'clock in tho morning-tho appointed .hour- tliey wore on their ground -whence they advanced and took the position, torc-ins the enemy line in this .sector tc fail back, with trifling losses to us. One olllccr had a hot with anotlie.* that he would bo In tho Bochc divisional headquarters at Chesnil flrst on Thursday night. It was a wild race, and was not settled until Friday morning, when tho winner actually took possession ot the quarters, while his troops were still fighting at tho far end of the town. , He captured the entire enemy divisional plant. Shortly-after tlie' loser came along and had to content himself wlih humbler billets. This was nine miles from the starting point of Thursday morning. Manitoba Unit The advance of a Manitoba battal-' ion was the recprd of the battle, being more than twenty thousand yards from our front line. One officer fell while leading on his men against a machine gun nest that was establishing the line. "Come on, boys," he' cried. "Wo don't care for machine guns." He bore five wound stripes. Another battalion was directed to take a wood. Tho colonel found it alive with Bochcs, making it impossible to pass without being mown down by machine guns. The first three companies were engaged solely, and could not bo broken off. The colonel got hold of tho fourth company and personally organized an attack on a corner of the wood in face ot a heavy machine gun fire. That portion of the wood was cleared, making it possible foF the other companies to proceed toward their objective and outflank tlie entire position, compelling its garrison tc surrender. Dodged Airships Willie marching dojyn a road this battalion was attacked by IS German airplanes, flying low and swooping tho road with machine gun fire. Tlio order was given tor the men to scatter and not one was hit. A cavalry squadron galloping down the same road also escaped without'a casualty. One ofllcer. summing up the battle, said it was the best organized show he had over seen. The arrangements wero perfect* and worked without a hitch. Within twenty-four hours of the casualties, the men reported to replace them and the supplies came through as regularly as in tho camp. CO. OPEN HANDSOME NEWSIORE HERE Take Whole Ground Floor of New Acadia Block For Their Business  - ' 1 After having been closed since the' disastrous Acadia block fire last spring, Clarice and Co., dry goods and ladies' wear, are opening ihoir new store in tho same block on Saturday afternoon to what Mr. Clarke confidently expects will bo a larger custom than ever. Mr. Clarke is expecting bigger business in Lethbrldge, and to tliat end he has shown his faith by taking tlie whole ground floor of the block for his business quarters. A splendidly arranged store 50 feet by 125 feet will greet Mr. Clarke's friends when thoy call upon him on Saturday after two o'clock. One of tho big changes is soon in tho front ot the store. There two large windows divided by the sot-in entrance stretch across tho entire front ot the store. Tho windows haire a depth o� 11 feet giving a splendid space on each side of the entrance in which to display goods. Another feature of the new store will be the rest room in tho southeast corner of the store. Mr. Clarke invites the ladles ot the city and district to make uso of this freely. Mr. Clarke Is very anxious that the ladies feel free to make use of the conveaience. It is being nicely fitted up and will be quite comfortable. Mr. Clarke is carrying all his old lines, and Is extending considerably in the niilJinery and children's wear departments, special sections for which have been sat apart. The ready to wear section takes up most of tho oast side of tho store, and a fine display ot the season's latest is already on view. Altogether the new store Isa credit to Lethbrldge, and Mr. Clarke hopes tc grow with the city until a much larger establishment lb needed to mefet the demand. / CATCH OF COD SMALL At a well attended lunclieon lodny over tho Alberta Dutroi, J. C. Herbs-man, the community buililpr, who Is lecturing on the Chauiamma cllTuit. Mr. Oourlay, vice vvf'Kli)rRolnto tho Canadians, and as tiio Canadians would bo in the.minority in tho proposed pact it would have been a very doubtful cpmmorclnl aRrecmont. But since that time 'Canada lias proven to tho world that her men are a unit In purse, in spirit and in tlieir lifeblood. Today wo can enter into a, buslneas deal with any country spcurc in the knowledge that the wnrtli of Canada and Canadians is realiznil, and wo would be entering tho pact ou an even footing. And in view of this possibility, Mr. Gourlay had a word of encouragement for Lethliridge. Standing as it does at one of tlio gateways to tlie great west, whence thousands upon thousands ot lAmorlcans will seek in the future ovon more freely than in the past, I..cthl)ridge has a brilliant opportunity, and it is up to tho business men of lln' rity to measure up to the opportunity and tho responsibility it entails. Mr. Herbsman. Mr. Herbsman has iipon heard in Lethbrldge before, and thr, people have not forgotten him. Uo is a community builder, y'io lielicves every Lethbrldge resident' ."liould In; loyal to Lethbrldge and sliould have a vision ot what LetliliridKo should grow to be in the futiin-. The ethical side ot the city, he considers, is being well looked after in tlie schools, and tho churches and the parks. Tlio commercial and Industrial future are founded on the agricultural tuluro. and it is therefore incumbent on the business men of.J.be country to niako the greate.st agricultural clevelopmeut ot which tho splendid district is possible. .Mr. Herbsman fui-tlior omplia-sized tho point made liy .Mr. Gourlay, that Lethbrldge is-one ol>^the gateways to the smith, and the opportunity thus afforded should i>e grasped. He. pointed out some of the things Letli-.Tjridgo needs, suoli as a new stathiii, a Imodern city hotel, and a solution of tho taxation pnihleni. in this regard ho advocated liirniug the unused subdivisions ' into a comniunily farm as Swift Current, .Mo'^se Jaw and some other western cities ai'e doing. He urged tile strongest possible co-operation of the business men of the city and community to deal with after-the-war opportunities so that Lethbrldge might take its proper placo in the future. And above all he urged tho people ot Lethbridpe to bo loyal to Lethbrldge and lo have a vision for Its future.
