Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 4, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta --r*r veto +'- r , BATti^DAY, DECEMBER A, 1915 \---- THE LET H BRIDGE DAILY HBRALft PAGE SBVE&t Everybody! Hear these FIRST Records of Marimba Music Marimba music is a new sensation, to Canadian ears. Favorite compositions played on the marimba assume a new individuality-the effects obtained are brilliant and startling. ; This little known Central American instrument has been one of the features of the San Francisco Fair, under the able presentation of the Hurtado Bros, of Guatamala, and the Columbia Company is the first to present its novel music in record (form. The marimba, as pictured above, i| over twelve feet long and has wooden keys as in the xylophone and is played in a similar manner. Unlike it, however, each key of this marimba is equipped with a novel "resonator;,,.-ra,triangular, wooden tube that reverberates with tremendous sonority as the key is struck. Columbia Double-Disc Records No. ____________ ---------, A-1832, Suppe's Poet and Peasant," and "Pique Daane," and No. A-184S, Strauss' "Blue Danube," and "The Tnrpe Jewels," two-step by More'ho are genuine musical novelties of extraordinary interest. The resonant, booming base?accords; the sparkling, vivid "trilling" as the scale is sharply ascended; the new impressiveness or gaiety each passage gains in this unique interpretation are delightful indeed and will give you that new thrills-marimba music at its best. Your nearest Columbia dealer^yvill giadly play them for you, without obligation, at your request. Trice, 85c. each.

Mrs. St. Denis died half an hour after being carried into the house. Her skull was battered in with a shotgun which St. Denis first attempted to discharge. No one ventured near the barn until High Constable Peters arrived. The officer found St. Denis hanging by his neck from a beam in the barn. He had been dead almost an hour. . St. Denis bad been released on bail. He went home last night in a partly intoxicated condition, and this morning continued drinking. He' started abusing his wife, and she ran towards a neighbor's. The husband followed with a shotgun in his hand, and overtook her within a hundred feet of the. house. He battered in, her . skull with the butt-end of the gun, and without a word went to the house and then to the barn. Six children, the eldest fifteen and the youngest two, were the only eye-witnesses of the tragedy which. has made them orphans. The family have been living in Harwich since spring, having come from Tilbury. The children relate that the father when he attacked their mother said he would not go. back to jail again, and would kill her and then himself.

'" GERMAN EDITOR SCORES HIS OWN PEOPLE Philadelphia;' Pa.1-J. Koettgen, a solid looking German, for twenty years editor of the Berlin Vorwaerts, speaking at the Broad street Theatre, here, shook his finger at the audience that filled the house, and shouted: "Democracy will suffer if Germany wins the war." He was talking on "Imperialism and World Politics"  before the .Socialist -Literary Society. Referring ' to the German Crown Prince, who' had expressed a desire for a "jolly war," Mr- Koettgen said he had got it, and the "probable result iti that he'will lose his crown about it." ? iably spoken of as "blighty," the reason thereof being a profound mystery; "gone to Mighty,'" means "gone home." The soldier, while he calls English bread "bread," never falls to call French bread "doo pain"; a comrade never dies, but "goes west';; a scare is a "wind up"; and the enemy.: are always "the Bodies." , -,; Major Gen.
