Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 22, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22, 1917 THE LETHBWDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE SEVEH .�� "Get-Away in Summer is a i Your Power __________ matter of fuel-food for the human engine. Food that is hard to digest and low in nutritive value does not sup-I ply energy > for the day's work. It uses up needed power by overtaxing the digestive organs. Shredded Wheat Biscuit is all food.

Changing from meat and potatoes to Shredded Wheat brings a mental buoyancy and physical alertness that makes one eager for the day's task. Eat it for any meal with sliced bananas, berries, or o'iher fruits. Made in Canada.

Dear Sir,-As Chnirman of the local organization, permit me through the columns of The Herald to reply to your letter published in tho Herald on Monday, Aug. 20th. Knowing you as I do, I am somewhat puzzled at the contents of this letter. First I wish to congratulate you and the people of Taber upon the success of the Chautauqua at Taber, and upon Far more effective than Sticky Fly Catchers. Clean to handle. Sold by Druggists and Grocers everywhere. Come Examine our Jewelry AN EXAMINATION OF OUR JEWELRY WILL MEAN A PURCHASE. THE OUTWARD APPEARANCE WILL PLEASE YOU; THE "INWARD" HIGH QUALITY OUR NAME ASSURES. JUDGES OF JEWELRY WILL BUY OUR JEWELRY WHEN THEY SHE IT; THOSE WHO ARE NOT JUDGES MUST TRUST TO ONE THING-THE "REPUTATION" OF THE ESTABLISHMENT WITH WHICH THEY DEAL, WE REFER THOSE WHO ARE NOT OUR CUSTOMERS TO THOSE WHO ARE. WE MAKE "QUALITY" RIGHT; THEN THE PRICE RIGHT. ARMSTRONG & RAWORTH tho success of your public meeting at which I am glad to learn from your letter that you raised $218.00 for the Red Cross. I also wish to thank you for tho high estimation that you put upon tho liberality and generosity of the Lethbrldge people in estimating the amount that we should contribute to be $1,000.00 or $1,000.00, It is good to have people think well of ua and what we should do, even if our actual contribution is only $343.00. Doubtless your estimation of our jpeople comes from your iong acquaintance with us, and we- are thankful for it. But in' giving credit by this Interpretation of your'letter. It 1b difficult for us to account for tho spirit that is uppermost throughout its sentences when you speak of the "grand scoop of the Talent we were counting on and had a right to count on," and of references to "Hog Town," and to "jolts such as this handed out from Lothbridge to smaller towns.'' In the first place tho Lethbridge committee had never been informed that Taber contemplated holding a meeting on Sunday night, and therefore did not know wo were apt to approach Talent that Tab.or might have wished to sec ure. In the second place no one had a right "to count on"Chautauqua tal ent for outside work unless they make special arrangements with the talent for that work. ,In the third place, Lethbridge had pre-engaged only one person for Sunday night, and that was Captain Hindloy. The statement that tho Comus Players took part in our program is erroneous. Miss Olive Mc-Cormick was not spoken to until It was learned that sho had arranged to spend Sunday with friends in the city, and we did not know that Miss Ward would honor us at the meeting until Sunday afternoon, she having returned to meet her husband who had just arrived from tho trenches. Mr. Moron Olsen also was asked to recite after it was learned that ho was returning to Lethbridge from Maclood to spend the day in the city. It was not until wo went to settle with Mr. Hindloy that wo learned that our good neighbor Taber, had invited him to speak for them. Now if there was anything in your remark about having a right to any particular talent, it would seem that Lothbridge would have a right to Captain -Hind, ley, but wo do not blame Tabor for trying to secure Captain Hindley, In fact we honor Tabor the more for it.
