Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 22, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, February 22,1917 THE- � tETHfiHiriGrt' DAILY ITERATE PAGE FIVE^h'^ (From bur. Onfn Correspondent) ; Foremost, Feb. 20.-The absence of mt'Of town. trade during the cold spill hat made the town appear comparatively quiet recently, but the merchants are making good use of the lulkin business by re-arranging - their stockand preparing for the increased demand -which, follows hard on Just . such a holiday as they are today enjoying." Tuesday's: train brought in quite > a rush of. business men and returning toUristB and . another room famine was 'almost experienced, but thp.accoiivmodatipn for the public is being developed''how .and'wei will soon be able to guarantee r8om and bdard tor all.' The cold spell has put a stop to lien buildings' as require exterior work, but workmen are defying Jack Frost inside of such building as are completed 'externally. It Isn't every prairie town' that can say that nine n�w buildings are in course of construction in February, yet that Is the case In-Foremost just now, and still We .hear, of new buildings soou to be proctetl/offices,' places of business, una residences'. Among the most recent of our town improvements stands out prominently the- neat Office being erected by A. D. Medhurst, in full view of the Station and .railway tracks. We are given to understand that this is to be his ylace of, business'hereafter. Work-> men' are alsd working on an eighteen foot' extension to Mac's pool hall, which the pressure of business made' necessary. In the absence of counter attraction* Muc is enjoying a apicin- north east of town on" Marclia. ;, We understand that our Jofeal butcher is considering the Installation of a cold storage plant, in his store.

Bird came In on Tuesday's. train and went out into the country wl|h Her f\ brother. We suppose that she. purposes spending a few clays at Blrdshohn. We might also make note of the fact that C. Carrlrigton is back with his brother in the afore at the " end or the brock," and yalso that Jack Greene has again returned to his customary place of business, > the pharmacy. We might also express our pleasure at seeing J;,- Oillls. back once again at his post of duty .and voice bur hope that these (and others) after a short absence agree oh the fact that "theres' qo place l.lke the old place," even when It la' but a new place. - �-  -" , �� '' ' Mrs! Q. Millar.has. returned once again to her home north east of town after an absence of nearly two months in Ontario.

The absence, oil Jthe band boys on town band business, arid the' reluctance of tic ladies''to attempt a dance with anything .but first class music forced the. Women's Institute to cancer their dance of February 14. The same is only held in abeyance for a more opportune' tirtie in the future, COMMITTEE ON REWftNED LARGE CITIES Ottawa, Feb. 22-The parliamentary committee appointed the day the house rose to deal with the. matter of the care of* returned soldiers held Its first meeting this morning in the committee room of "-the publtc accounts committee of the house of commons.

Charles Marcil, till they arrived on the other side. Not being a medical man ho would not "express an opinion as to thr responsibility for this. In some cases no doubt- the' facts developed after soldiers had gone overseas. Colone.' Sharpie's told the committee that all soldiers who had lost a leg are sent to Toronto toube supplied with artificial limbs. He had never known of a man so treated being returned to service in any capacity. That sixteen thousand soldiers have already passed through the discharge depots was new Information given to the committee by Col.. Sharpies. Practically no complaints had been received froir returned soldiers, except occasional . complaints in regard to food supplies. I That was natural, more particularly lin t^e case of invalids. Discipline in I hospitals, he said, was, on the whole ! good. Occasionally it had been necessary to confine the men to barrackr ! for drunke'nessj but no more severe ! form of punishment has ever been ! imposed.

CARSON PRAISES JELUCOE London, Feb. 21.-In introducing Die naval estimates in the house of commons today, Sir Edward Carson, first lord of the admiralty, said the vote for 400,000 men which the government was asking demonstrated the strength of the navy. He expressed the opinion that the country wvv'j exlromoly fortunate in having Admiral .Tellicoe at the head of the admiralty. "In his record of service and experience Admiral Jellicoe occupies a unique position," the speaker commented. As an officer at the admiralty for two and a half years he has held the destiny of the country in his hands. - Admiral Beatty, continued Sir Edward, was now commanding the greatest fleet which ever sailed the sea and had the complete confidence of the officers and men. A fifth sea lord had been appointed to deal with the air service, he announced, while the transport department of the navy, except in so far as it was concerned with the transport of troops had -been transferred to the shipping controller. Sir Edward said he was certain the problem of the submarine menace could be solved, but it could only be solved if the nation acted in the way indicated in conjunction with the navy. UNIVERSAL TRAINING IN THE UNITED STATES Washington, Feb. 21.-After a conference with President Wilson, Secretary Eaker said today he would send to conj gress this week the universal military training bill drawn up by the army general staff.
