Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 23, 1906, Lethbridge, Alberta BERiLD �*s*)rt)r� prior to vviiag to- ' nwrrowf V'  liOthbridgp.

To-morrow (iv^s tba people the opiwrtunity o' twbllshinc our prestifs as an ;lBdus-trial centra. ^ we deliver to the readers . the parting niessagie get j>ut and votn, and bring out yonr friAids to vote for PLOUR MUX BY-IAW.

"One, two, three, go!" and 1.0th-bridge is off to .a .big.start as an industrial cvnirc. Make Ijolhbridge the Munchestcr of Wt'slcrn Canada. i -jfcw industries mean more population. More population iiicuns more money circulated in the city. The erection of the flour \wH und woollen mill will give employnwnt to Lethbridge mechanics. Medicine Hat is jealous of Loth bridge and that* is the reason it' is tiying to knock the Woollen MilL Cuttle roaming about the streets night and day arc doing damage to tre�s and boulevards. For good  nese sake let us banish the cattle from our streets and give citizens some encouragement to plant and cultivate boulevards. trees With the increased capital iMiiig invested in Taber mines, it looks as though that town was going to keap forging ahead. The end of this year, will see Lethbridge in the possession of four Uno new business buildings; The Hudson's Bay, J. D.|HiginbOtht tn's, Wm. Oliver's and �ie North West Jobbing Cp.'s warehouse. No better augury of*the future of lethbridge could be desired than in the investment in costlSr buildings by its own people. Do a good turn for the city that givea you a living, by voting for the by-laws to-morrow. At the time of rain, we should prepare for the erection of more crossings on our streeta It is simply an outrage, the way some of our citizens have to plough through the mud to get down to business. / ' If we only had a few paved streets life would be worth living during a rain storm. square and on the streets, Tiiey at-' is it not? "Theros nothing like a sense of humor," said Rear Admiral Iluehlor at Atlantic City. "Jn a woman, in a soldier, in a sailor, in a clerk, n sense of humor is a help and u blessing through life. 'At tho same time, even a sense of humor moy exist in e.xccss. I, for my part, shouldii:t cure to have to great a sense of humor as u soldiei-I once heurd about. "This soldier was ordered to be flogged. During the flogging he laughed continually. The lash >vas laid on all the harder, but under tite rain of blows the .soldier laughed. "What are jou laughing ut?" the sergeant finaily uslied. "Why," the soldier chuckled, "I'm the wrong imin."-Philadelphia iltU-Ictin.

Kvoi-y ratepayer ought to qui::' Just as they liked. But those thoughts have passed away, and wo realize the older we gel, that the best daj's of life were those spon at school. The idea that manhood vos the happy state is removed urd we find that the older one becomes the busier life and the more burdens we have to boar. Few of us get any holidays now and the years long gone by, when we had two month's rollicking good loaf in the sumnizr, arc merely pleasant memories now. PRESS GMNDINGS. Saskatoon Phoeni.x: Jesse James, Jr., is now a lull fledged lawyer. Jvn inherited instinct, probably. ^ Winni|)eg Tribune:-AVjs, when Dave Phillip saw that sprinkling cart on Main Street this morning, "Le.'id utj to it," says he. "Lead me to it, let mo feel it with iiM!,own fair hands, before ithe vision fades." And the spectators wi|)ed their eyes with iheir elbows. Toronto Telegram: The Ontario Railway CommisHion, per jMr. A. II. rngram, is in doubt to its power to inforcc a two cent a mile rate upon th^' Metropolitan Railway. Of course. It is the way of all Oovernment comiruissions in this country. Canndian commissioners are ai -ways in doubt abdut everything bii'. the size of their salaries and 'ho date upon which it is due. If Lethbridge is a good enough place to live in, it is sui-ely good enough to boost. If you can't rustle for your own city, you had 'letter "skidoo." Vote for the by-law* tomorrow.

It iMediclna Hat property ia as valr Lethbridge ought to have a poultry fattening station. There ie no better climate on the face of the earth tor poultry than southern .VI-berta; right about Lethbridge, too. We ought to be able to raise enough poultry and eggs to supply the British Columbia markets at least. In Kansas millions of dollars are made each year out of poultr>'. Why can't we hit the money niaking trail in the same line too? Push Lethbridge to the front. ^Strathcona will go into paroxysms of d( light over thd suggestion of the Toronto Globe that Strathcona and lijdmonton will soon be united ' as other that they can hardly hold the one city. They are so fond of each wedding olTa day longer. At the .corner of the crcas-roads when you don't exactly know Which is the better turning and whic way you ought to go. There's oft a man who sadly errs and takes the downward road, To And that rue and wormwood on his pathway thei-e are sowe.l; .4nd-ho walks with pain and doubting, as a host of men have done. Missing ever in the shadows all the glory of the sun; But there's still a consolation for the most astray of n>en; He can go tuick.to the cross-roads, and in brief, I'm tellina: you. Of my somewhat vagrant journey, that 1 very often do; And so must every man who hopes at last to w-in a prize, For, one and all, we sotnctimcs stray, as haply you surmise;' But there's no road, that leaJeth. down which may not be re traced, , And many a man who jouroiys wrong another way has faced. And still we hold it is a truth, the best of all ve'ken; We can go back to the cross-roads and try the thing again.

The fuliKiinenesa of the flattery ofTcrcd to women on their personal attractions and the el^fance of their dress is surely being carried beyond all bounds.

It is not ou the writers that tho responsibility chiefly rests. They are meetiny the demand of the day, and they can hardly help furnisoin>; the adulation for which their fair readers crave more than the miilliner can help furnishing the dress which is in fashion, however absurd it may be. The malady is by no modns peculiar to Canada. Evcrywherethervs rages the same passion for publicity and self-display.
