Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 18, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LKTHJHIPQI DAILY HERALD COWAN'S PERFECTION COCOA MAPLE UAFLAflEL) Its richness and exquisite flavorgive an added ness to homemade "sweets" and dainties. Be sure you get COWAN'S cocoa with the Mapie Leaf Label. THE COWAN CO. LIMITED, TOBONTO. 133 FROM A WESTERN WINDOW -BY AN ME- TRE CLOSING- YEAR By F. W. Bourdilon. Faster than petals fall on windy days From ruined roses, Hope after hope falls fluttering, and decays Ere'the year closes. For little hopes, that open but to die. And little pleasures Divide the long sad year that labors by Into short measures. Yet, Jet them go our daily-lived hopes are not The life we cherisk Love lives, till disappointments are forgot, And sorrows perish. On withered boughs, where still the old leaf clings, New leaves come never And in the hope hangs faded, springs No new endeavor. Word comes from Washington that to Mrs. Taft's recent ill-health. there is a possibility that she may Tae forced to retire throughout the coming season. Whoever has read anything of this "dominantly endow- ed lady requant" knows that she is nothing, if no-t ambitious and re- sourceful. Few Presidents' wives have taken up the duties of mistress of the White House with better quali- fications than sjie- She has had much experience of public life, and is a charming hostess. When -a child, slie stayed a good deal at the White House, as her father was the legal partner of President Hayes, so it was not as a stranger that she her new' home.' Mrs. Taft 'is -mu- sical, much interested in arts and let- ters, and has a lively sense of hum- or, an indispensable attribute in a successful hostess. Yet, it' that it has not proved a ta'.is- man against the inevitable nervou, breakdown. Mrs. Taft's favorite book is -Taue Austen's "Pride and Prejudice." and indeed in her versatility not unlike the witty heroine, Elizabeth Bennett, who has charmed so macv generations of readers. If, -to eavrv it further, Mrs. Taft resembles Eliza- beth, Mrs. Roosevelt was like Jauj Bennett, the quiet, loyal, generous- hearted sister, who was quite tent to bask in reflected light, desir- ing no glory of, her own. During the seven years of Mrs.' Roosevelt's regime, she was like Mrs. Gladstone, never absent from her husband's side. She performed- the duties that fell to her gracefully, but had no desire to establish a social precedent. With such a forceful hus- band, she no doubt felt that that was move. Mrs. Taft, on the other hand, seems to be the "best man" of the amily, and had it not been for her persistent influence, it is said the President would not have achieved the success he has. The story goes that some time ago some one asked Mrs. Taft who first thought of her husband as President, and she re- plied at once "I did." "When did you think of was the next question. 1 'When I was somewhere about six- came the surprising answer. So it is no wonder that such a wo- I man had planned to make her social j reign compare favorably with that, of Dolly Madison and Mrs. Cleveland. She had entered with great spirit in- to details of all kinds, personally su- perintending such things as the liv- ery of her servants, the personnel of the household staff, the laying out of, parks and driveways for the public.! and dozens of other things. I A woman needs to be strongly en-1 (lowed physically to cope with such! exacting tasks, and there are those in Washington who shook their heads at such dommatiiiK energy. It could not last, for not even a President's wife may burn the candle at 'both ends, and so, for a time, there must be a halt. Physicians sa'y that a eood rest will set things right, but meanwhile there is consternation in Washington society. If the tifuth were known there is a large and increasing number of women in this country who are going to the limit of their strength and who might, with profit benefit by this example. We hear constantly of "nerves" till we are sick of the very word, but un- fortunately we cannot do away with their reality. Critics tell us to "cul- tivate but that's the rub. It's easier to prescribe for others than to take one's OTKI medicine. Yet we ail feel the charm a reposeful personality, and hold it up as our ideal. There is a beautiful little bit one of James Lane Allen's books "The Choir which' seems to sum up womanly dignity. Speak- ing of the heroine, one of the most beautiful women in fiction, he says: "Through seasons and changes she had gone softly never retreating from life, but drawing about her as closely as she could its ties, its sym- pathies, its duties, in all things a character of the finest equipoise, the truest moderation." After all it is better to "go softly." The illustrated Christmas number of the Toronto Globe is .out again, and a very good number it is. Cana- dians need not speak of it, as they so often do of our own publications, apologetic tones. There are eight pages in colors, and three supple- ments for the picture part, while the reading matter is of unusual interest. Mrs. McClung, of "Danuy" fame, who is said, by the by, to be writing another book, has a story. "The Last Buffalo -by M. 0. Ham- mond, is worth reading. In addition there is the usual number of short sketches and bits of poetry. In the Canadian Magazine for De- Miss Montgomery, who charmed us with her stories of Anne, has an amusing sketch. The editor. Newton MacTavish, who has been writing on the big round-up of the buffalo since his visit to the West, contributes some cow-boy photo- graphs which are very good. We could wish for a suggestion, of more excite- ment in the broncho-busting one, but the days of wild exhibitions are over. A beautiful: translation of a French Chanson, 'D'Ou Viens, Tu is of peculiar interest at Christmas time. men who carried off the spoils were Mr. Seatle and Mr. Cunningham. Last Friday afternoon Mrs. David Donald received for the first time since her marriage in. her new home on London Road, Mrs. Donald wore a rose silk gown, in Princesse style. In the tea-room where yellow chrys- anthemums centred the polished table, Mrs. Nelson and Mrs. Stewart presided, while Miss Murray and Miss Mills passed the refreshments. Mrs. McCullough was the guest of honor on Monday afternoon at an in- formal little bridge given by Mrs. Cunningham. The pretty prizes were captured by Mrs. Wilson and Mrs. Piigby. Of All the Plans For CHoosing of P resents SOCIAL AND PERSONAL Mrs. H. Goode was the hostess on Tuesday evening at Five Hundred, in honor of her "of St. Thomas. The ladies who took the prizes were Mrs. Wilson and Miss Anderson, -while the. gentleman's prize weot to Mr. Me Arthur. Mrs. E. H. Wilson entertained again last Frj-day evening at a most de- lightful euchre. It was quite a large affair, as ten tables played, and the games were very exciting. Yellow chrysanthemums in the drawing-room and pale mauve ones in the dining- room made effective decorations. Mrs. Wilson wore a becoming black gown with touches "of gold, and Mrs. Starnes was in gray satin. The first prize for the ladies went to Mrs. rethbridge, while .Mrs. McCullough Hon. Angus Macdonnell spent las Monday in town on his way to th coast, and entertained a few of hi friends at luncheon at the Alexan dra. Big Crowd At Lyceum A packed house greeted the pre- sentation of "The Devil" at the Ly ceum last night when his satanic ma- jesty appeared before the footlights as represented by Will Stewart of the Stoddart players. The play from it took the Lone Hand one. The gentle- j originality and striking prolematic LYCEUM TO-NIGHT 'The Wolf Monday Night, "The Music Master" 50c. 75c. situations was one of absorbing in- terest. The character of the devil was well portrayed by Mr. Stewart, his facial expression and make-up were all that could be desired. Mr. W. R. Todd as the artist in whom his Satanic majesty is most interested, was exceptionally good. The char- acter required a great deal of clever and- the player did remarkably well. There were many strong emo tional situations throughout the play and a considerable amount .of satiri- cal or satanical humor too. The cli- max is not what might be termed pleasing, nevertheless the play leaves much to think about and much of pro- fit if rightly thought about.
