THE LATE HENDERSON The Lethbridge. were shocked this'morning to learn of the death of William Henderson, the may- or of ihe city. It was generally that for several weeks be lias beet unwell and unable to Ms-official duties as zaaypr, but foV E. any idea that his illness was of kci serious nature. illiam Henderson passed away the scene of bis activities i'or r a quarter of a century, wearing the time of his decease the highest onOr in the gift-of his fellow-citizens. He was a valued member of the first municipal council when the town was incorporated and has ever since taken an active Intelligent interest in the .public affairs of the city. Two years p today he was elected mayor of the From of his election he .stinted and untiring service to devoting practically his en- municipal For his .as received the unani- ,1 of bis fellow-citizens not only of those of tbut of the citizens of lities far and near. As s progressive, business- and honorable in all 'doubtful if Lethbridge or any oCH5f similar city ever had a mayor who received more of praise and less of blame than has the late mayor. In a business way. the deceased was eminently successful. As a contractor and builder and as a hotel proprietor he has been one. of the factors in building up Lethbridge and in provid- ing for those who came to the city. As a man, William Henderson was lilted by all. His was the genial gen- erous character that ever was ready to help and never ready, to injure an- other. From coast to coast there are thou- sands of who will feel that in his death they have lost a dear friend. Any worthy cause or any worthy per- son nev.r was denied assistance by Mr. Henderson and his public spirited generosity was an outstanding char- acteristic. Devoted, as he was to tne interests of the city as a whole, to its citizens and to his fai the iate William Henderson was a citizen whom Leth- bridge could ill afford to lose and whose place will be hard to fill. The Herald is confident that it ex- presses the sentiments of the city of Lethbridge in these statements and in expressing to his widow and fam- ily its heartfelt sympathy in their sad bereavement. A CHRISTMAS JOY, With Christmas Day less, than myo weeks av.-ay it is high time thai tltai 'public should be- reminded of a ing Christmas duty. The dominant note of Christmas-tide is Joy and Good Will, anci the nvotr-l nixed nie.-i.ns by which this noto isj best struck is by Giving. To many I the of Christmas from I Getting rather ;.lhan from Giving. the words of TTirn in whose honor Use1 is celebrated give the rtssuninef it "it, -pleased to give than >ia- nteon that it is not blessed to reoiMve as well but dot s moan that. the bless- ing of receiving is great, that of giv- ing is much greater. Every act of giving, therefore, like the acts of mercy, is twice blessed. .There is a great pleasure and sat- isfaction in seeing the joy oxorcised by ot'.ers upon the receipt of our Christmas gifts. But he who would stop at these misses a very import- ant part of his Christmas blessing and joy. The- greatest joy comes from rendering Christmas choor to those who in the ordinary sonao of the word have no claims upon one. Tn every city and town there aro a number, greater or smaller, ;o i Christmas brings but little joy cheer. Lethbridge has a these people, and the knows not of prosperity of the last: has attracted to hoped to share i perity. Many h they are mis-fits never anywhere perity.

But there are in the citv. the Salvation Army, the Relief Society, the C. T. the Churches md others who make a business of finding out the poor and the needy and supplying their needs as far as possible. It is not out of place, therefore, to remind those who have of the needs of those who have not, to re-nind the people of this prosperous city that their Christmas joys ca'n be greatly increased giving a share af their Christmas Divings to those .vho can and will appreciate it the iiost. Donations of money or goods iiven eitiier directly or through the agencies mentioned, with a Christ-uas spirit, the spirit which prompt-id the coming of Him. who was an-lounced as bringing "Peace on earth ;ood-will to men" will prove to the ionors the blessedness of giving and ncrease the sum total of Christmas jheer throughout the you want your presents to arrive at their destination on time ship early; if you don't want to go bankrupt, stop early. the time a few more fellows get soaked two hundred and costs for supplying liqtjor to Indians, it will be considered unprofitable to break tue law in that respect. i A Toronto young man faked a story of his being held up to cover the fact that he had been off on a time.

Walker Jell, Dan Macdonald and Wm. Cochrane, of Granuni, were in town last week. Mr. Macdonald purchased lots for the purpose of building, a business block which is to be started immediately. W. I.

A LESSON FROM EXPERIENCE The recurrence during the municipal campaign of the question of videning Westminster Road, north >f the railroad, bears with it a lesson o other places as well as Lethbridge. rhis city is being forced to spend uite large sums of money to acquire and in order th'at greets may be pened up, or widened or straigbten-d. IE there had been a by-law re-uiring all sub-divisions and acreages o have been laid out in lots accord-cg to a set plan adopted by the city 11 this would have been obviated. New towns just starting out, and here are hundreds of them through-ut the west, would do well to learn he lesson from the experience of and other older places I'hose experience in this line has cei' much more expensive. In a recent interview. Mr. W. L. rant, a Canadian teacher of colon-il Iiisrc-ry in the University of Ox-crd. gave a much-needed warning gainst the results of lack of fore-ighf in the, laying out of town sites, inconveniences are unavoidable and vils of many sorts are prone to conr wherever people are compelled i live very close together. This is reason for the exercise 'of the ut-lost care, the highest intelligence, nd the most varied experience in uarding against the defects which re sure to become crystallized m the Ian of a town, the laying-out of -hich. is left to the caprice of the roperty owners and the chapter of ccidents. Among the things that ought to e secured are, according to Mr. .rant, adequate space for parks, mple width of streets, distance be-ween dwelling houses, and efficient anitation. Every one of these is im-ortant, and yet in the laying-out of ew towns and the extension of old nes they are the very things that re almost certain to be neglected, idvantages that would cost very lit-le, often nothing at all, if secured efore land ceases to be rural and ctually becomes urban, come very xpensive at later times and much rouble experienced in securing OF SENSATIONAL NOVELS James McMath, Mere Youth. Who Arranged Murder and Suicide Toronto, Dec. James McMath, the adopted son of Hugh McMath, who attempted to shoot his foster mother, afterwards committing suicide, was the victim of reading sensational murder stories, brooding over them, and the fact that he had developed physically at an enormous rate. When a found him shot dead in a public lavatory, he reported that it was a man 2S years of age. McMath was actually 15. but he stood five feet seven inches, in height and had been shaving for the last two years. His favorite reading was the Kinrade and Thaw murder eases, whicj Le had read over and over. He was an adopted did not know who his real parents were. The McMaths" knew but would not tell him. PREPARATIONS TO PHOTOGRAPH THE COMET Wis.. Dec. 10. The astrom ical and astrophical society of America through the chairman of its committee on comets. Professor George C. Comstock of the University of Wisconsin, has just issued a statement to astronomers throughout the country in regard to the observation of Halley's comet. A long and continuous photographic campaign in order to secure the best possible picture of the interesting visitor to the Solar system is urged by the committee. As there is no observatory with proper facilities for photographing the comet in the large area of the Pacific Ocean the committee is about to send an expedition to the Hawaiian Islands to piiotograph the comet during its greatest brilliancy, which will be in May.

Evidence is multiplying that Zelaya intends to retire from the presidency of Nicaragua .Reports to this effect are general throughout that country and the United States consulate officers seem to give credence to them. The latest scrap of news from Nicaragua reached the state department this morning and stated that Jose Madriz was being talked of as Zelaya's successor. Madriz was chairman of the Nicarag-uan delegation of the Central American peace conference in 1907 and he was also elected secretary at conference. At present he is the representative of the Nicaraguan govern TtriH in the Central American court cf justice at Carthage, which is charged with the settlement of questions .'iris-ing among the several centra: American countries.

Dec. Dr. Anabel Zelaya, second son of the president of Nicaragua, and a graduate of the medical school of Columbia University, appeared in the supreme court rootyf today to defend a suit against him for brought by Elizabeth Juliet Hero, who claims that young Zelaya courted her while he was a student at Columbia and that he promised to marry her. The papers allege that after the young woman's mother gave a dinner at which the engagement was formally announced, President Zehiya forbade the. marriage calling it mis-alliance on the part, of his son.
