Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 2, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta PAOt ItfVtM Lacombe Home Dressing Rev. Father Lacombe, one of the venerable figures of the West, was a visitor in the city yesterday, arriv- ing here on Monday evening from his home in Midnapore. The object of his visit to the city was to make ar- rangements for the shipment of a donation of coal from the Gait mines for the "Lacombe Home." He stated that that institution is progressing favorably now. Half of the building is now nearly complet- ed. The work was stopped for the present on account of the cold wea- t-ber, but would begin again in" the spring, and was expected to "be com- pleted at the end of June. The sisters are already in residence there in the meantime, in temporary quarters, and Father Lacombe is liv- ing close by with an Indian boy. He is attending as chaplain to the sis- ters and holding services oti Sundays for the few Catholic ranchers of that country.

Almanac about Doan's Kidney Pills, and began using them, and after the first box began to feel better. I only used four boxes and they completely cured me. I am very thankful to have found so speedy a cure, and would advise even-one suffering from kidney disease to try'them." Perhaps _no other "organs work harder than the kidneys.to preserve the general health of the body and most people are troubled with some kind of Kidney but do not suspect it. It may have been in the system for some time.

He had been in Lethbridge over twen- ty-three years ago and was at that time travelling among the Blackfoot Blood Indians. He then remark- ed on the quantity of coal along these rivers and had made a report to the government to that effect. He considered at that time, although not a coal expert and not having much time, being always with the Indians, that there was pl-enty of coal from the Missouri all along the Rocky Mountains north beyond Edmonton- Not a bit of it was touched or even known of till that time. He had met Sir Alexander G-alt j here in the. old days when he was organizing'a company with the view mining, and had encour- aged him to go ahead with the pro- ject, assuring him of success. That that success was abundantly achiev- ed could be easily seen to-day in Lethbridge. NOBLEMAN IN EXILE British Lord Rusticating on a Farm Near Gueloh Guelph. Nov. Lord Gooderich. from British Earl, the north of Hving on a farm just out- side the city limits. He Is here see- ing how he likes Canada and its peo- ple. After, seeing the Northwest on a recent trip, he declared himself im- pressed with the large-heartedness of its people, believing them more neigh- borly than in the older portions of the Dominion. JJis family dates back to 1648. when King Charles conferred the title. Part of the Gooderich es- tate, including Markenfield Hall, was sold by the present Lord's grand- father in 1SS2. and the remaining por- tion divided betwee There is not a shadow his two sons., of doubt aboutj Pinober Creek, Dec. of the most enthusiastic "gathering of the clans" was held here at the Ed- ward Hotel, when the Scotsmen of Pincher Creek and district congre- gated and had a jolly time of such as Scotsmen alone know how to hold. J Dr. Warnock, M.P.P., was chairman j of the it was a right royal banquet with all that is I coming to the sons of the heather, i even to a piper all the way from j Lethbridge. But everybody was hap- that is saying the least of not a participant in the affair "lost their babpoe." Speeches were made by two of the l-i'-Jiug divines of the town, namely. 5lev. W. J. James, M., A., and Rev. V. Hunter, but perhaps the most j popular speaker of the evening was Rev. H. G. Grant of and so well known to Herald readers for his good work among the working class- cs all along the Pass. j Besides the speakers already men- I tioned there were G. N. Gould, and i Inspector Belcher, responding to the toast of the "Army and D. Thomson, to "The Day and all who .honor W. H. Jackson and A. E. Cox to "England and R. Henderson and D.

Let me j say, however, that if Scotland has ias many well wishers and patriots in j the councils of the nation as was so eloquently exemplified at this ban- quet, there is but little to fear as to the future of the British Empire. Not only did the Scotch enthuse over the subject, but the English, the Irish and even the Welsh were there with the. goods in point of loyalty. It was a memorable night in Pinch- er Creek, and may there be more ol them when St. George's and St. Pat- rick's days come along.

P. the reality of this obscure nobleman's title, one of his trusted friends claims, but he simply chooses, under j the circumstances, not to disclose his i identity. (The Canadian Courier) Wmie the opinion of the writer is strongly in favor of a Canadian navy, he sympathises with those who think that the Canadian people, not Sir Wilfrid Laurler and Mr. R. L. Borden, should have decided the question. Indeed, he believes that the proper method for those opposed to the Can- adian navy idea is to invite the po- litical leaders to open up half a dozen close constituencies and let the peo- ple vote on the question. This is the method which the Britisher adopts. For example, let Mr. C. A. Magrath, member for the constituency of "Medi- cine Hat, offer to resign his seat and contest the constituency with a man, Liberal or Conservative, who is in favor of a Canadian navy rather lhan a cash contribution to the British na.- fund. Let them agree beforehand (rhat this is to be :he m.pn topic argument, and that no other is to -he 'discussed.

District News IRON SPRINGS Iron Springs, Nov. enter- tainment was given in the Huntsville schoolbouse on Nov. 23. By dint of a lot of hard work on the part ot the teacher, Mrs. King, and several of the friends, an entertainment was provided such as has not been sur- passed in quality or quantity during the history.of the settlement. Rev. K. Kingston occupied the chair. Recitations were given by Masters Arthur Heeter, Sydney Ten- nant, Ralph Pearson, Clarence Dick- out, Pay Pearson, Arthur Brady, Bert Hunt, Fred Dickout and Misses ertie Wright, Jean Fraser, Ruth Vbblc, Marguerite Hunt. Several solos and several choruses were well rendered. Among the solo- sts were, Misses Ruth Noble, Tilly Powell. Marguerite Hunt, and Ralph and Fay Pearson. There were several dialogues, each showing signs of long and careful'pre- paration. Mr. Frank Le Bar proved himself well qualified to undertake the solil- oquy entitled, "A Bachelor's Sweet- hearts." A series of charades and a good stock of refreshments concluded a very interesting program. A missionary meeting was held in the school-house Nov. 26. Several ;peakers were expected from Leth- bridge, but as they did not arrive an address on "The Missionary Enter- prise" was given by thespastor. Rev. K. Kingston. A good audience was present and a good sum of money was contributed for the missionary cause. Mr. Joseph Hunt is confined to his nome by illness. Several homesteaders have arrived recently to spend the winter on their claims. Mr. T. A. Macdonald, of Lethbridgc. is building a large house on his land near the river. Mr. Bert 1 Wyman is also building a new cot- j ;age for himself. Roliday Windows Will pull Big Business if you take pains to make them attractive.
