Children along the way run and cry when they see us. They think we ate ,spirits, else we -wouldn't be white. On the river one day a woman asked me if I could see to the bottom of the stream. She thought'; blue' eyes could penetrate anything. All their eyes are black.

He never could attain the presidential chair," HAD TOUGH TIME Hallfa.\, N,S., Feb. 20.-Th'e Norwegian steamer Norfolk, hound from Narvik, Norway, 'to Philadelphia, 'with ore, came into this .port at dawn. Tliey had been twenty-eight days out, -when their coal supply gave out. One of the lifeboats was washed overboard, the bulkheads, were smashed in, and the crew had been compelled t-o use' one cabin for eleven days. The danger from floating ice was gi'�a,t. "The Girl From Toklo" "Tlio Girl From Tokio" will be seen on Friday, 28th inal,, und 'March 1 at the Mftjestic theatre, Lovora of good clean comedy will have an opportunity of witnessing in "The Gfrl from Toklo," one of the brightest and cleverest of thlt. style of entertainment. I/iko all sueoessful farces of the past decade, it has its orlRtn In the German, and enjoyed a phenomenal run of 215 nights at tli�' Court The-aive, Berlin, Uei'many, After consid-(rablo litigiitlon. Manager Frank O. Millei', who Is iporsonaily directing the tour, secured the American rights to the piece, and that it was worthy of the bitterest fight tor its possession is attested by the record breaking business accorded "The Girl from Tokio" in ev.ery city where it has a'p-peared. The leading characters are all portrayed by artjats who are all well kno'wn to every frequenter of the theatre to need any comment from us, further than the mere mention of their names, which Includes Julia Morton, Edraond Forde, Adelaide Matthews, Leo Hobbs Martin, May Helton, Sherry Snydei-, Rollin T, Holden, John Raymond and others. Notwithstanding this is a high priced attraction, the prices will not be advanced. The seat sale is at Kenny & AUin's drug and book store.  *  At the Bijou Friday and Saturday The week-end program at this 'premier photoplay house should be seen by all. "The Red Man's Honor," which is in two r�els, is without a doubt one of 'the best Indian pictures yet shown here. Tune Dew, a pretty Indian maiden, Is betrothed to Red Hawk, the bravest warrior of the tribe. Seated Bear, another hra.ve, also loves 'the dark beau, ty and his savage heart is InHamed with jealousy at tlie success of his rival. One day he surprls,es her alone and forcibly carries her off In his canoe. Red Hawk appears just in time to see the act, and springing into the stream soon overtakes his rival. A despei-ate struggle follows in which Red Hawk's arm, strengthened by the "Great "Spirit," mortally wounds his treacherous enemy. Red Hawk and the maiden return to the village and the wounded Indian painfully makes his way to shore, where he tells a greatly distorted story of Red Hawk's crime. The accused warrior is ordered before the great chief "White Eagle," and the death sentence imposed. "He that kills a brother must die. Twelve moons hence his spirli: shall join that of the dead �warrior." Red Hawk's lifart is filled with bitterness and he leaves his tribe to join the army of the pale faces. His bravery in surmounting indescribable diflficulties to destroy a mountain bridge, thus clipicking the advance of the en�my, gain.s him the high regard of the army, but his happiness is short lived as ho remombers the sentence and returns to his tribe to pay the debt of a red man's honor. With his beloved Juno Dsw he is taken to the funeral pyre and their souls go forth to join llie Ila; )y Hunting Ground of the "Urciit Spirit. ' The bill also shows two good comedies, which will make a .strong program. �Special children's matinee Satu'r-day, A dollar bill given away to the luckiest boy or girl. Jlatuieo, children 5c; adults 15c. * * * Par.^ageis Vaudeville fop Le-th. bridge The Pantages vaudeville, which opens at the Morris on Monday next, marks a new era In nmusemont for the Lethbridge public. Mr. Pantage, who i3 ili;^ largest individual owner, of amusement in the world, has needed some convincing that this city 'was of large enough population to support such attractions, and it was only after facts and figures were shown to him that Lethbridge is now on an ef|ual with the rest of Canada's big cities in regard 'to amusement. Manager Morris, to whoni a great deal of credit must be given in successfully closing the contract v/here-by for the next year, on the first three nights of the week the Pantages' attractions, will be seen here. There need not be the slightest doubt in anyone's mind, but what this is the genuine Pantages, and 'the support of the public, is now the only thing to prove that this city -will be ready to patronize of the best. There will he two shows each night and a matinee on Wednesdays. There will be further announcement In the Herald tomorrow, together with a full programme. Week-End at Starland The entire change of programm.e at Starland today �will contain many splendid attractions, foremost among which will be a stirring two-reel fea-�ture, "When Lincoln Paid," a Civil War story, that will cause the onlooker to run the entire-gamut of human emotions.

This picture was produced by the American Film Co, on their ranch in California, and it is safc to say is sufficiently strong to hold tlie 'breathless attention of onlookers from the beginning of the first reel to the close of the second. , In addition to the above two cracking good comedies will be shown, and a splendid military production "Sundered Ties." "The Pilgrim's ProgKss," In font reels, to be shown on Tuesday, iiob-ruary 25, is arousing great interest and crowded houses will no doubt be in order for this occasion. � , � � At the Morris Tonight the management are again presenting an attractive and pleasing bill for the many patrons.

R. Will be Asked to Sell City More Land-To buy Another Coal Mine If Lethbridge is to expand industrially as the council seems determined it shall, two items of capital expenditure must be incurred-free sibeB will require mo-re room in the industrial centre, and a coal mine will have to be acquired to meet the future demand for coal. When the free site proposltdon lent-ered into the industrial policy discussion last night Aid. Skeith moved: . "That we approach the C. P. R. with the view of buying the remainder of 'the south half of section. 4-9-21, lying north o't the company's track, for industrial purposes." The present site 'contains 69.4 acres.

P, H, would not be exhorbit*nt in its demands for the remainder of the half section. This 'will add about 240 acres to the site, maWng It about 300 acres in all. I' : The motion was seconded by Aid;,' McNabb, and carried unanlmousljTi Buy a Mln� Too When R. A. Ross, elecrtrical exp�rt, was here some time ago he recommended the immediate purchase of another mine for city power plant fuel supply purposes. He said that in ten years thc coal land of this province will be one of its most valuable assets, and that at the end of that time it will be impossible to obtain a mine anywhere near the city. For self pr.eeervatlon he advised the city to look to the future, especially If theywished to alwaya have a muni-; cipal mine on which to draw, to pro-: duce cheap power. , The fear was expi'essed laect night by some of the aldermen that, by, givr, Ing ch�ap power, the drain on the, mine 'would be Increased; and ,It' would not last more than 15 or/20 �years. ,,'�',�� It was therefore decided that 'the. city should lose no tlm.e In securing further ^al property. The only obstacle in the way oi the suggestion; is the city's financial condition at thS n present time, but it was argued that, money spent in that direction :now,;; 'would make/ a great profit In .�tbe future.
