Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 20, 1905, Lethbridge, Alberta S' 'iPSON & BjSNNETT Putlialit'rs E. SIMPSON A. S. BENNKTT Iff' yo BSCS IP'"ION: Vi Advaace - $1.50 a year therwise - " S2.00 a year ADVERTISING; Ker Month - SI.00 Per Inch THE YULETIDE SEASON. The festive season is again hand; and before another issue the Herald is placed beside your dinner plate the most joyous day of the whole year shall have come and gone. The stockings will have been filled and emptied, the Christmas trees strippetl, the ring given, ' the big heads reduced, and so on. It is a gladsome time. Who does not look forwaixl to Christmas with pleasi\rable anticipation-young or old, rich or poor? Some^f course, legarcl it not so enthusiastically as others, yet everyone feels charitably inclined on this occasion. It's contagious. The influence that was sent whirling down through  time on the birth of that manger-chikl over 20 centuries ago can never be erased or become obsolete, and the birthday anniversury will always be celebrated in christian lands by acts of charity and good fellowship. Christmas always comes as God-send to the poor and needy o the larger cities all over Canada and the United States. Charitable workers everywhere at this time make preparation for big dinners , for the destitute, and provide them ^vith other necessities as far as in their power in the way of clothes, fuel, etc. We read in the daily �papers of big spreads being arrang ed for the cities' poor. It is a noble work. Most everyone "becomes disciple of "Old Scrooge" along a bo u t'Christmas. Even Mr Kockefeller has loosened up with considerable jingle to be devotee to Christmas charities. It will do good, and we cannot censure him too harshly supposing he is liable to put kerosene up a notch by New Years. We must remember that J.D.'s stomach is "on the hummer' and he'has a license to envy the lowliest poor, who could knaw ime turkey leg or a dozen and tunities of the west appealed to him. There were openings galore-in the east for him, as men of his iibility do not go begging for positions. But in the west there was ; hope, there was opportunity, there I was a chai\ce for the futiire that : every man worthy the name of man, is looking for. Yet, Mr. Buchanan did not act hastily. Became west ^ and visited the various centers ~ ! of ixjpulation iu Alberta, Saskat-I ehewan and British Columbia. I Ho wantetl a place that wotild prove at I a permanent home, a place that of i iii-.d a future, and a business that woukl respond to his energy and ability. He thinks that he has found aU that he was looking for in Lethbridge and the Herald. We know that he has. We know that he will be more and more satisfied as time goes on. We know that he will like the people of Lethbridge. We know that he will find them responsive fo his best efforts as we have found them, and he will also find them anxious to aid and abet him in his work for the prosperity of Lethbridge. We have confidence in Lethbridge, we have confidence in Mr. Buchanan, and we have a certain degree of confidence in ourself. Those three factors insure success, if backed by xmlimited energy and reasonable intelligence. This is a little heait to heart talk with the readers of the Herald. We want to take them into our confidence. After the first of the year the Herald will receive an equipment that will equal that owned by any office m a tovm the size of Lethbridge or larger, including a type setting machine and other modern machinery. When this additional material is installed the Herald will then be able to publish a paper that we have had in mind from the start and one that the people of Lethbridge will be proud of. Commending Mr. Buchanan to your kindly natures and looking ahead to the future of Lethbridge with the hope based on ' convictions, we remain yours for jwosperity, F. E. Simpson. never , Not only^will God's workers in . the vineyards of charity' care for ? ;the physical needs of the poverty-Btricked, but the hospitals for the poor will be visited, where sick and invalid children fiom the slums will be told of the Christ child, and, perchance, hear the story of "Little Nell'' as told by some sweet-voiced woman whom these wan and suffering waifs of humanity wish could be always near them. Other institutions will also be visited^where the spirit of the time will be infused and Christmas cheer dispensed with lavish hand. We notice by ths Toronto Globe that the knights of the tomato can are already coming round to interview the good housewives of that city for holiday handouts. This is rather overdoing the thing, but let those same weary Willies drop around to the back porch Christmas eve or Christmas day and the chilliest dame that ever unchained the tramp bull-dog will thaw out and I�ss over a snack that would be liable to cause a serious distension of the ini^er lining were it all con Bumed in one meal. That's Christmas. And it shows that the mil of human kindness is not all dried up, even though it flows from some hearts only once in a twelvemonth Herald Hammerlets. eweiry -A N D- Xmas.
