Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 16, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta I luitHtiay, January 10-, 1VJ& THE HERALD Pflfire 9 Mr. Dunlop Makes Reply To Rev, Mr. Watson's Letter Editor-Herald:- Sjv: My attention lias bean, called to a letter from Rev. A. C. Wateon appearing in last night's Herald in which he takes exception to a report of the annual meeting of the first riapttyt Church, held last Monday evening, But ,for the general tenor of Mr. Watson's  iTtHarliB 'and the misleading statements contained In his letter I would not take, tlte trouhlo to refer to the same. I am simply writing this leter so that the readers should know Uhe facts as they really are: First. Mr: -Watson denies that he admitted that the.transfer of the services, of the'church to the theatre had been' a "dismal failure"-what Mr. Watson actually said was that so far as finanoes aiid numbers were concerned aud idling solely by finances find number tihe change from the church to .the theatre had been a "howling failure." . In order to prove this It is only necessary fost$te that the attendance at the theatre on Sunday eret|ings has dropped from two hundred and fifty pr thereabouts to less than one hundred, while the morning services are not one halt as forge as they were in the ctiuroh when Mr. Watapn left there.- Saeond; Mr.: Watson also stated that (*bae oppojluf hlm had pnly contributed fifteen per cent to pastor's salary and current expenses during tho sit months he has been here. Mr. Watson diy-ton> for some weeks, leaves shortly for Vancouver from where he saila on the 22nd for Molbourne, Australia. Messrs.

At the lasc tennis fiance the ladies were- in the minoTlty and my attention was called by a married mail to the lack ot courtesy displayed by a man, who goes alone to a, dance, regardless of the fact that aome glil may b� compelled to jnlso the dance o� account of having no escort, 'it certainly 1b a disgrace especially {n-this - weafcrn land* where the wen far outnumber tno girl*, that such a state ot affairs should, exist. Yet you actually god--girls, whose hopes have ft9ord.e4 inen away from home ma�y a splendidly good time Cwbfoh 'iney did �ot hesitate to aoeepfc)'-staying away from a dance, because those very m^n are too selfish �ndv'Indifferent to display common courtesy in the little things' of life, -whicji> after all mean so much in the sum total o�; happiness or'thc reverse. Apart from it often- being -a duty, surely it. will not hurt a man to sometimes be first In consideration, for .the feelings of another, aud occasionally escort some girl, to whom lie does not really owe the kindness. Now it isn't that a girl particularly wants someone to take her, tout etiquette forbids her going alone, and, even were she brave enough to defy etiquette in order to enjoy a pleasant evening, she is not sure how she will be able to get home. Then, too, a girl isn't going to think a roan is In love with her because he asks permission to escort her to a party. Some men ^appear to be afraid she might think so. Just in this connection, It is surely dispicable for a man (he couldn't properly Die called by the finer name, gentleman) to allow a girl to go home alone, while he sneaks away with a bunch.of fellows, or alone. But there are men pf that stamp, who even after-being entertained at a house affair, have so little respect for their hostess, as well as the girl in question, that they allow a more gallant man (one who couldn't do less, having the instincts of a true gentleman) to take home more than one girl. Inconsistent as it may seem, the man who goes alone to ,a dance is the very man who complains most loudly when he haB difficulty in filling his program. By taking a girl he makes sure of at least some dances. To be perfectly just, there 1b a point In extenuation of the non-gentlemanly man. He may be afraid of intruding, but will it hurt him In any way if a girl (tells liim in a kindly manner, as she undoubtedly will it she is. a lady, that she already has company for the occasion named. She will appreciate none the lees his courtesy in asking her, even if she cannot accept it, in that particular instance. Be very sure that these remarks by no means apply to the majority of western men, who generally speaking are as gallant as any to be found else where. Suoh men by holding in contempt the discourteous man will soon eliminate him entirely from social gatherings. INO. Sure Diagnosis The teaoh^r was, trying to get the boy to say "dessert."

This change was ,dfcided upon yesterday at the meeting of the executive board of the general conference of the; Methodist Church. The Teport of the board of finance was presented and adopted, and such steps will be taken in the future as will add to the utility and success of the department. An annual budget Is to be prepared including all the conuexional funds, which are to be presented through the annual conference and the district meetings in each of the circuits of the church. The circuits will include in the budget the amount estimated by the local boards and the connexlonal funds. By the adoption of this system the financial work of the depart-" ment will be greatly expedited. The board of finance was strengthened by the addition of a number of prominent Methodist laymen, and their assistance will render great benefit to the fund.
