HARDIE "STANDS CORRECTED" "1 stand was thci 'way mayoralty condldate liar- die put it today in referring to the statement of Aid. Skeith, in connection with the offer ot 80 cents for the bondu from the Wood-Gundy Co. Mr. Ilardie had been emphatic in his crit- lecigm on this point, and rather disposed to doubt the accuracy of Aid. Skeith'B statement. However, he made an investi- gation and found out that the alderman's statement wan ab- solutely correct, and, like a good sport, Mr. Hardie admitt- ed his mistake and accepted the correction. CHILDREN MET London, Dec.

Siflon and Sir James to express publicly ON 1BIW EXPLANATION OF HOW THE HERALD ONLY PUBLISHED THREE YESTERDAY The Herald has made a mistake. The sample ballot on the commis- sion, form of government question which appeared in last evening's issue was not correct. It contained three questions instead of-four. On Wednesday afternoon, at the regular meeting of the council Seer.-' tarv-Trcasurer Robinson askrd tl e council to tell him what form ol bal- lot to get out. He submitted rough draft of the three questions in the barn, and her cries brought Mrs. Chiislcy and Mrs.Jlanda. With agonizing cries, the three mothers tried to break down the bnra door, and failing, attempted to pull boards from the side of the building. When help arrived, the three women .were raving like maniacs. They, were car- ried to their homes, and rescuers cut a hole into the barn.- Before- they suc- ceeded in entering the building too children were burned to a crisp. Do you live the unselfish life? What do you think about helping out In a scheme to make Christmas a more joyous occasion for n bunch of little kiddles who will not get any- thing unless you do? A dollar or two from you spout in a scheme of this kind will do more good than lavishing it on others 'who will ;et more than enough, or spending It in selfish indulgence. The-Herald has made investigation ind there is no doubt but that Leth- bridge has its share of children who need the kindly smile and cheery help, jjlncss of the society of pood Fellows. This society wasn't started this year, nor is it peculiar to Lethbridge.. It embraces a world-wide fraternity of men and women who think of others. !t is a great greatest the world. It doesn't take any time to >ecome initiated. Join it today. If yon were down and out, wouldn't yon like to have someone show you real friendship? Of course yon would .nd so do others. Don't let it be said that there will be one home in Ji'idgc in 'which there is no sunshine at Christmas. The Herald doesn't mow where all the little ones live who need the cheer, but there are those who do, and through them the Herald is going to send whatever can be collected to see that It is properly spent so as to give the greatest am- ount of happiness. Mrs. Corry, matron of the children's borne, wants to arrange a dinner for kiddies who get no plum pudding or turkey otherwise, and the members of the nursing mission and others may know of homes which would not -be reached except by this means. The Herald believes that by everyone con. tributing to a common .fund, greater ;svtnshine' scattered. Join the good- fellows movement.
