Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 27, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE HEKALD SPECIAL PUBLICITY NUMBER From a Western Window was HER POCKET. (His View.) a dainty, tiny thing, With curly hair and dreamy eyes, I watched her furtively, and wished That I could draw as dear a prize. When, suddenly, she seemed alarmed, Began to act a trifle queer, Poke anxiously around her waist And in her gloves to wildly peer. I looked at her in true alarm, Alas! that all my scattered wits Could not recall a thing to do For pretty maidens having fits! I watched her grab each arm in turn, And pinch it firmly every place, Until I saw a tiny lump Appear amid the filmy lace. j She. clutched it. Were it made of gold She could not wear a look more pleased. A two by She then, at last, she sneezed! York Herald. No day is well spent, that is spent without a still This bit of wisdom caught my eye the other day and haunted my brain, till at last I had to admit its presence, and give it some consideration. So now I pass it on. We all realize that there is a profound truth hidden in this modest little, remark, but prefer not to apply it personally. For it is a fact that" many of us live such busy days from early dawn to dewy eve, dayd filled with multitudinous du- in importance, but all clamoring for attention, that some- times, to our shame be it saiu. ihere is no "still moment" till we lay. our tired heads down at night. And even then there ing thought weary brain the events of the day are work and pleasure are planned. for the great clock of humanity." And so when Lent comes there is a quiet lime, when we may seek to get in tune with the universe, and find cur own little place in it. One does not to go into the seclusion of a nunnery to do this, as many people supposed in bye-gone ages. The strong soul is he who in the midst of duties keeps a tranquil mind. It's hard sometimes to keep this mental poise, but it is a habit well worth cultivating, and stands one in g-'od stead on Blue Mondays, when "everything goes from the time when the children's rubbers re- fuse to be found in time for school till the evening hour1, when unex- pected company arrives for dinner and it's a "scrap dinner." It takes stores of saved-up calm to get through such days, und this ireful ccmiiicui ty may be packed away in those half hours of quiet which I hope we'll all resolve to cultivate henceforth. At Christmas time many letters from the big cities of the East bore on the envelope flap gay red square stamps which were rather puzzling. One said Merry Christmas from a sanatorium for consumptives in Ham- ilton, and I made haste to open this I' MOVING I-RICTURES ADVANCED VAUDEVILLE 1 Poor Officer 2. Nervous Twitching 3.

That night ,as Mrs. Powler falter ingly 'told her husband all about it he burst out laughing, and said "Never mind, I'm about twenty thou- sand to the good in a land deal with La Poulet today, and traded in your old gas wagon, which Mrs. La Pou- let will never use. So you are even." We are told that the Bridge. Club never met again. SOCIAL AND PERSONAL. Last Wednesday afternoon Mrs. W. J. Armstrong received for the first time since her marriage, in her pret- ty home on Kedpath Street, and a stream of callers, many of whom had known the bride for years, and had watched her grow up, called to wish her all prosperity and joy in her new i home. The rooms looked very cosy land inviting, and the bride was a picture of girlisli grace in her wed- ding gown of white embroidered chif- fon, made in Empire effect. With her Mrs. O'Hagan received in a very handsome gown of champagne with touches of pale blue and yellow. Little Merle O'Hagan, the younger sister of the bride, made a pretty lit- tle picture in her white silk frock, as she opened the door for the visitors. The tea table was done in pink and tration, and if we all could take half an hour a 'day for rest and quiet it might make a difference in the world_'s. Not for nought was it said "In quietness shall be story in this month's Canada West, which is not without points of inter- est.

Mrs. La Poulet, smarting under the sting of the Pow- :ler red devil, heard of bridge as a ;of high society, promptly utilized and won. The bridge in- faction spread rapidly, a club was organized, and as it. seemed most un- becbmiing for Tangahoula to place itself in the same class as "those rural communities where they play- ed euchre at parties and served iced tea with soda it was. decid- ed to play for a nominal sum per point. At the first .club play they tnade this sum five cents. On this eventful afternoon Mrs. La H. Morris presided at the tea urn, and Mrs. Downer cut the ices. Mrs. E. B. Hill, in white point d'esprit over pink, and Miss Agnes O'Hagan, in the dainty pink gown that she wore _ as bridesmaid at -her sister's wedding, assisted in serving, the many dainties to the guests. Mrs. O'Hagan is to be congratulated that she is to, have her'daughter so near her, as it is only a step from the new home to the parental roof. Mrs. Conybeare gave a small Bridge last Saturday afternoon, at which Mrs. J. J. Johnston was the lucky prize winner. This little prize wag especially apropos, as it was a tiny jug covered with cards, so dear to the heart of the fair "Bridgeite." The social ball for this week was DON'T KNOW HEART AFFECTED. More People than Aware of It Have Heart Disease, Our; of one, people would surprised it num- ber of persons walking about suffering Iron htsHrt disease." This startling statement wu nude by r doctor at recent inquest. I should no; like to say that heart disease is M commor. as this would imply." said the expert. "but I am sure that the number of persons going about with weak hearts must be very large." Hundreds of people go about their daily work on the Terge of death, and do not know it. It is only when the shock comes that kills them that the unsuspected ness of the heart is made "Bub undoubtedly heart weakness, not ia more prevalent I should thiok that the stress of living, and rush of modern business life, have a lot to do -with heart trouble."

The tea table was a symphony in pink, with its centre of nodding pink carnations surround- ed by billowy masses of pink chif- fon.
