To Rev. Dr. Ferguson, Superintendent of Home Missions for the Northwest. Dear Sir,-To begin with will sayN that I am not a member of the Mormon church, hut a number of years ago joined the followers of Wesley, 'so that what f may say will perliaps have add. ed weight with those no! of that faith. I was both surprised and incensed that one occupying the position you do. should, according to an article in the Calgary Herald of February 11, the authenticity of which you have, never denied, make such an unwarranted, untruthful, libelous aunek on a good 'and noble people. Have you forgot-! ten the ten commandments and that one in particular, fthe yth^iliat says: "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neiphhnr," anil then the | other one that Christ gave (John l;i-:>4). "That ye love one another as L have loved you." also the SUi command ment: "Thou shalt not steal," which will apply in your case, as you have endeavored to si'-al their good name, which is "�more valuable than great , Morning trains -from t ne south brought Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Melntyre and C. B. Bender from California, and Mr. Melntyre brings back word that California will send more landseekers to Southern Alberta the coining spring than ever before. Mr. Mclntyro owns a farm near Lethbridge, and has been among friends in the sunny state all winter. Last spring there were hundreds of Caiifornians who came up and secured land in this section, but this year he says they will come in swarms. Other travellers returning from the States declare that the movement will be heavy in spite of the war. Hight now enquiries are coming, into the offices of the local real estate men in large numbers GVery day. and Lethbridge will he the*meoca of the land-seeker in the spring. The movement in farm lands is the heaviest, declares one agent, since 1012 when the last great rush was on. m unity. i wish your correspondent to know that J stand, by the Grace of( God, where I stood at the time above referred to. seven years ago. against every assailant of "the faith which was once delivered unto the saints." Jude " and welcome a public discussion of Mor-monism from a Biblical standpoint, with any of the "Apostles and Prophets" who have been *'called of God as was Aaron/' and are thus divinely licensed to speak, whether he be the ostensible non-polygamist of Canada or the practical polygamistof America. Yours respectfully, JOHN KAB. i had disposed of l'ringle of Macleod on the other end of the semifinals. Lawe and Nicholson cl�sited while Stewart and McNahb were playing off the Brewery.

How do i you reconcile .*your profession with your attitude towards these people whom you have denounced. J can attribute your^n'otive io but one of two things, groap ignorance, or pure maliciousness inched by jealousy of their success and perhaps your nonsuccess. I am nclined io the belief that tho latter cause is the (rue one. Incidentally you may have had it*in your mind that you would gain favor with a certain class; rest assured it will be a very small one.

Physical Habits Do you think such teachings will have an undermining effect on Christianity. Another thing, old and young are taught, is how to live, to grow and take care of the physical part. Tea, coffee, tobacco and all intoxicants are not considered necessary, but detrimental to the best physical development. Now does it not seem strange that scientific men have ju'3t^lately found that out. Couches for athletic * h teams, where strength, agility, endurance and clear heads are necessary for tho best results, forbid the use of all these. The Mormon? have known this nearly mo years. As a result of these teaching, go to one of their meetings., see the bright healthy children, sturdy boys.and girls, robust grown-ups; and men and women of years, some of them of four score or more, active and enjoying life. ] know of no other com. mnnities where vou can find the same. Solid Life They believe in cultivating the social side of life in all innocent amusements, music and entertainments which, with 'their strictly temperate living, leads to a long and happy life. While living, they are very much alive. In (heir "Articles of Faith," number 13. we -readf "We believe in being  honest, true, ehasie, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men:'1, then again, "If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things." Do you think the teachings of these can in any wav undermine Christian- jity? I think O. II. Snow has fully answered you in regard to'their loyalty aud THE LATTER DAY SAINTS  COMMONLY CALLED MORMONS Editor Lethbridge Herald:- Dear Sir,-Do anti-Mormon writers ('such as Dr. Ferguson) believe in their work, or can it be possible that a desire for money or publicity, with no regard for truth and others' rights create their inexhaustible supply of venom v * (Permit a few of the world's intellectually prominent citizens to suggest the answer.) Dr. James L. Hughes, the eminent Canadian educator, in the Canadian Magazine, of Toronto, has left on rec-[ord the following positive, unimpeach-I able testimony concerning the Latter Day Saints. "I had a hazy opinion that the 'Mormons' were an ignorant, unprogressive, rather fanatical people until 1900 when Mrs. Susa Young Gates, one of Brig-ham Young's daughters, startled and charmed the people of Toronto by her eloquence, her advanced ideas regarding education and sociology, her comprehensive enlightenment and her strong, yof gentle, womanliness. Those who heard her at the meeting of the National Household Kconomic associa-tion promptly asked each other *at the close of the first address: How can that combination of simplicity of man-men, practical common sense, broad general culture, originality and power be a, product of Monmpnism? "I was still further astonished when! 1 had the privilege of meeting the in-1 dividual members of the delegation at i ihe National Suffrage Convention tn ! Washington in 1902. In appearance j and in intelligence that delegation of wdmen stoofr in the front rank, and would not need to take a second place in any gathering of women in any part of the world. They seemed to have an added dignit}' from the consciousness that they represented a law abiding people. I found, too, that the Mormon people have very advanced, educational institutions. 'I had believed that the 'Mormon leaders tried to keep their people shut in from the world in order that they might more' easily be kept in the faith. 1 found it to be a cardinal principle of the church to send the leading young men and women abroad for study and work in order that/ they may bring j back to their homes the most advanced ideals of the highest civilization-in but to the material betterment-Df all it 3 disciples." (�published in the Chicago AmerL can, 'HJlla Wheeler Wilcox' has placed on record her positive, unimpeachable testimony concerning the Latter Day Saints, fcommonly called Mormons. ?
