Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 20, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHamDGE, ALBERTA, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY IS, w Rambling Reveries BY A DREAMER There are too many fathers who will tie up the dog at night mid let. the boy run loose. Some women are awfully touchy. A widow has brought an action against a paper which said that her husband had gone to a happier home. v What is needed most of all in bringing up children is example. What they 'see and hear and take in by absorption 'in their young years, will, in most cases, become the ruling traits of their lives. Parents rarely fully realize to what extent they stand as models to their children. There is no surer safeguard against the temptations that come to young men and women than a love for home. It has brought back and held many a wanderer in a safe place. It t? 10Ve- .training of the child. What 'here is In such ji home-, of home than in anv other spot on he'rue spmt of motherhood, of that earth i tender care which the child will re- member in after years, and which sits up into the wee small hours of the night working on dainty gowns in which all the childish impulses for play are stifled forever in dress ar- rsy. The over-dressed child is always the unhappy child. She is a pert miss who has learned early to regard overmuch the and vanities of life, or she is a poor little discontent- ed victim, who has never a chance for childish pluy. and looks with en- vy at the ragtrt'd little tumbling ur. chins_ who mud pies on the The over-dressed boy is even more unhappy than the over-dressed girl. T3ie Little Lord Fauntleroy boys who were seen a few years ago iii their velvet suit, -though they were pictur- fsquo. were a very unhappy set of little gentlemen, and were probably very thankful when the fashion changed and they could .wear blue flannel sailor suiits and double-kneed trousers, and play marbles ab lib- itum. "Do you like your suit, John- said a visitor to a boy in long blonde curls and Fauntjferoy dress. he replied. "I don't want to be a girl. It's my rua wants me to be a little angel.' How much sacrifice do such poor mothers make on the altar of person- al vanity, and how little, time and temper must be left to 'devote to the T. E. PATTERSON, Office, Oliver Block. Phone 887.

There is a charity that consists in withholding words, in keeping back harsh judgments, in abstaining from speech, if to speak is to condemn. -Such charity hears the tales of slan- der, but does not it, listens in silence, but forbears comment; then fitted him to meet the great tempta- tions outside.

How these lines of living light- shine on the pathway of the weary and heavy laden, making the foot- paths easier to find and pleasenter to follow, throughout the varieties and vicissitudes of the journey of human life; all of which are unseen in "marble and unknown in richly appointed where only fashion rules the hour, and folly crowds home affections to the wall, where veiled faces and ach- ing hearts tell of gilded "shams, and fields of desolation and decay of the "life that is--worth the Purity in Womanhood A German Philosopher has poetic- ally and truthfully said, "The two most beautiful things in the universe are the starry heavens over our heads and the sentiment, of duty in the human soul." Few objects are rich- er for the contemplation of the truly high-minded man than is a young woman who lives, acts speaks and exerts her powers for an enlighten- ing conviction of duty, in whose soul the. voice of duty is the voice of God. In such women .there is a mighty force of moral power. Though they may be as gentle as a lamb, or retiring and modest in their demean- there, is in them what commands respect, what enforces esteem. They are'the strong women. The suri is not truer in its course than they are to theirs. They- are -reliable as the everlasting rocks. Every day finds them in the same steady and1 moral firmness. Men look to them with confidence that knows no W In Washington, IMPROVED FRUIT LAND brings from to per acre. We tell better Sands unimproved at to per acre, according to location. You csn make a good living and pay for the planting and cultivating of your orchard, by growing garden truck between the trees. OR You can have your land improved k to a six.year old fruit bearing or- chard, for to per acre. We have experienced orchardists to do this work and charge per acre for same, which includes clearing, cultivating, supplying and planting two-year old trees {your selection) and the subsequent care of same for four years.. Do these prices appear high to you? An Apple Orchard in full bearing, yields from 500 to boxes per acre, and nets the grower from to per box, hence if fruit land will yield a profit of even per acre, that profit is equal to ten per cent, on or ONE HUN- DRED AND SIXTY PEJ?

Do a little figuring for yourself, The climate of THE ARROW LAKE DISTRICT is admirably adapted to the growth of vegetation. The win- ters are so short and mild, that semi, tropical fruits, figs for example, can be successfully grown. The soils of this valley are a com- bination of volcanic ash, sand from the disintegration of igneous rocks, silt from old lake beds, and humus from the decay of vegetation. They comprise all the elements necessary to plant life, being from two to three hundred feet in depth, and are of inexhaustible fertility. says the New York Wall Street Journal, "are stubborn things and they won't down." .British Co- lumbia possesses lumber resources, greater than all the states of the Union, East of the Rocky Mountains. British Columbia is moreover now recognized as the orchard of the Em- pire. .It has the soil, the climate and it will have the people. NOTE.

Buy your home now while prices are low. .They will never be lower and will certainly be higher in a I' very short time. We do not claim to have the only Fruit Lands in British Columbia, but what we wish to explain, That our lands were personally se- by two old residents of the country, who understood conditions necessary for profitable fruit culture, and who were at the same time fa- miliar with the climate and soil con- ditions of the country. That, at-the same time our lands were selected they had practically the choice of the country. That our lands were chosen for the purpose of fruit-growing, was in their opinion, the best obtainable. That due consideration was given to sections requiring irrigation and those said not to require it. That our lands were chosen with a view to irrigation, should it be found necessary, and can be Irrigated at a very small expense. That since that time it has been satisfactorily demonstrated that ir- rigation is not required. That transportation facilities and conveniencesto market were not over- looked. That the choosing of land in small isolated tracts where schools and churches could not be maintained, was, carefully avoided. That we believe, there are no bet- ter fruit lands in British Columbia, than we are offering at the present market price. We are not selling on COMMIS- SION. We own our lands and are interested in satisfying our customers. Write, us for full particulars and. literature. The ARROW LAKE ORCHARDS LETHBRIDGE ALBERTA doubt.
