Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 16, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1918 THE XETIfBRIDGE BAILY HERALD UPHELD TRADITIONS THE SEA article entitled � "Stick It," the ',oLndon Otobe gives this ndmlr-�blo{review and exhortation: Ppjf.thre* years and n lialf weJiavo koen'flghtlng In tl^e greatest warNiver knovrn, and the enemy is not beaten yet. ' Thousands upon thousands o� our youth have been slaughtered: thousands upon thousands more have been broken and maimed; we have piled' hot water over the LUX flakes -"pure essence of soap." Whisk into a lather. At once you get the richest, creamiest lather you ever saw, which dissolves dirt without rubbing.) . After cooling.stir the clothes about in this heavy lather. Do not rub or twist them. Rinse in two or three relays of water of the same temperature you washed them in. So thoroughly is LUX dissolved that not a trace remains in the garment to discolor it. LUX woii't harm anything that pure water 3Jone wilf not injure. For silks use lukewarm water. Now York, Fob. 17. - Tradl-tionals of tho sea wore uphold heroically by Captain E.

If her under-water boats are a ntilsance and a peril, her flag has been swept from the surface of ever>-' ocean in the world. Not a square yard of British territory has been seized by her, while what we hi^e taken ot hers'is only to be measured in thousands of square miles. Her troops have never once broken through our line; ours ha%e pierced theirs again and again. Italy has^ecovered both her spirit and her strength, and, it Russia has fallen out, America has come In, and we wish the Bosches joy ot the exchange. If Cambrai did not give us all we hoped it gave us a great deal, and it shattered once for all the legend ot the Hin-denburg line. If the High Seas Fleet escaped us iu the Jutland fog it has remained bottled up ever since, and seems mightily reluctant to -win another "victory" like that. "Calais at all costs" has turned out to be Ostend, and "Paris in three weeks" has meant no Parii? in three years. "It's the last 15,1 round as settles it." Whether this is j the last round tor which Hlndeaburg is * aparrlng now we do not Icnov-. But we do know that it Is either, the last or the last but one, and that we have only to stick It out to see Ms seconds I throwing up the sponge. We are not in this ring to "win on points"; we are there tor "a fight to a tinlsh." StiqJ-iknow themr j selves for better men than Fritz, and they ask tor nothing better than tp see him coming ov^ "the top to give , them another chance ot proving.

' to the glory of the sacrifice and aplen-idor of their aims. Stick it. This Is ;not the first hard fight we have had > in the thousand years through which tho sons of "the llttlo fog-bound Is jland in the Northern Qa" tiave shat-, tered despotisms,-defied Popos and 1 Kings and Emporers, made all the seas I their playmates; and filled with free 'and happy people the waste places ot the earth. Now, as in the old days -the days of Drake and Nelson, ot Clive and Wellington, wo are fighting for life and honor and freedom. Be ashamed to doubt or falter in this most righteous cause. "Either God is dead or Germany is doomed." So spoke the dying Gorman, and hoispoke truth in the btttoruess ot his 'heart. Do ybu think God/is dead? Will you be the man to betray our noble sons and brothers at the front--you, whom the real horrors of war have hardly touch-ed? Stick It. Perhaps'that la all you can do or.all you need do. But for your manhood's sake at least do thaL Ottawa, Feb. 16.-summary ot the roturhs of a number of the largest city bakers in Canada for the years lOIit to 1916 shows that the earnings on a capital ot $1,250,000 amounted to an average of 15 per cent alter all Interest and depreciation charges wore met, according to a report issued today by W. P. O'Connor, acUng cost of living commissioner. "I do not," says the commissioner, consider these as excessive profits. It must be reraemberod that modern biking plants are expensive In first costs, and In renewals. One baker shows a larger protlt than stated above In the early days of the war, due to tho fact that he purchased extensively before tho price of flour advanced, and had low management charges. The net earnings ot many of the smaller bakers are less than the profljls shown above, owing to tho smaller volume of production and leas efficlont methods. While men with limited capital can enter tho bakery business at any time, there is a general active competition in the trade which tends to control prices. On the whole I find no present evidence of unfair doallngri on tho part of the bakers." ORGANSoWy bureau. Tho appolntmetit of trade represen'-tatlvcs to;tho principal oversona markets.
