Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 23, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta LITHMIDOi, ALTA., SATURDAY, JANUARY 31, IfW. A CASE OF BIGAMY. SherbrooKe, Quc., 'Jan. war- rant has been issued for thc arrest of wife of B. F. ClovoluiwE, secretary treasurer of the town of Hichmond, on a charge of bigamy. When thc high constable: went to serve .the warrant it was found that she had gone to Portland, Me. It appears that May Stephen of So- was married to John D. Smith, merchant, of Hichmond, at St. Sim- QJI'S church, Montreal, on Sept. 20, 1898. After living with him a few years she went to Dakota and secured a divorce. In April, 1908, she re- turned to "Richmond and married E. F, Cleveland at Island Point. Vt. The parties returned to Hichmond to re- side. The affair created quite a scandal in Richmond and the matter was tak- by the Ministerial Association, who, after securiag certificates of both marriages and other exhibits, submit ted the question loading attorneys of the province for who stat- ed .that bigamy had been committed. The matter was then submitted to the attorney general, who instructed thc officials here to proceed with the charge of bigainy. Her former hus- band, J. D. Smith, has instituted proceedings at Ottawa for divorce, and it is presumed Mrs. Cleveland went to Portland to escape service.

First in this calendar comes One hundred ago, on January ]fl, 1809, Edgar Allan Poe .was born in Boston. Forty years later he died in Baltimore and in his brief life showed glimpses of such splendid and daring' genuis as have Kiado debating ground for .the critics ever since. Poe's parents died before he was three >vars old, and he with a bro- ther and sister were set adrift in Richmond, Virginia. He was adopt- ed by the wife of John Allan, a Scotch tobacco merchant, and remained in Virginia till he was sixteen years of age, when he went with his foster parents to England and was put in a school there. On returning to Virginia he studied farther, and entered the University of Virginia in 1826. His career there not seem to have been alto- gether; to his credit, and his .gam- bling debts were so many that Mr. Allan took him from the university and put him as clerk in a tobacco house. This was so distasteful that he escaped from it, and in 1827 en- army. However, he and Mr. Allan became reconciled, and he entered West Point as a cadet. He stayed there only six months, and was dis- charged for neglect of duty. From that-time Poe became a wanderer, j and lived at times in New York, I Richmond, Philadelphia, and Balti-i more. In Richmond he met a beau- tiful young girl, Virginia -Clemm, who afterwards became his wife. In 1833 he won a prize of one hundred dollar? for his "M. S. Found in a and from 1834 to 1836 edited successfully the Southern Literary He did not keep this posi- tion, however, uiid worked at sucli newspaper work us he could procure New York and Philadelphia, find- ing it a hard struggle a-rninst Hick- ness and poverty, to earn enough for daily bread. la 1845 he published "The the poem which chief among his works, won him recogn lion amor.f: IfR contemporaries. A .Fordhani, a suburb of New York, hi 'Mittk' carv-buudle of a as Vir giaia called herself, died in her band's tirins, and Poe himself did no long survive her. He was found i a barroom in Baltimore, in an inebr: ated state, and carried to a hospita' where he died on Oct. 7, 1849. Perhaps no American poet has bee; so praised and blamed by schools o rival critics. As a man Poe wus er ratic. daring., moody, fond of effect rather superficial, but filled with love of beauty. And as-an artist s was he. Many of his prose stone deal with the supernatural and fear aud embody his speculations a to tho soul and the hereafter. Whil these are of interest to the student it i.s Jus povms which appeal more to the general reader; and if we ac cept his own definition of poetry tha it is "The rhythmical creation o beauty, we feel in yielding ourselve to the haunting melody of his verse that he approached the standard se by himself. Most of us, who per hops know no .more oi Poe, kno'R "The and can still feel thon for them as for their English- peaking neighbors, who often feel oath to tear themselves away from study of the tempting bargains. In' the in this country, I have; often heard it said that the arrival! of a new Eaton's catalogue was one i of the most important events in the i year. People lived far apart, and in' some districts did not meet often.: Books and newspapers were not plentiful as now, and not so fre qyently delivered, and a new cata login.- was a glimpses of the gay out side world of fashion that fed the starved imagination for many a day And while it served as reading mat- "tor for the family and often a first prinu-r for children by which to learn reiiuiag. its practical side was not forgotten. Lists were made out, and consultations held with the near- est neighbors, and nn order was soon sent off, embracing everything from needles to gramophones. And then the next excitement was the arrival of the order, and very often joy was mixed with grief when it was found that Johnny's suit was large enough to hold himself and Tom, and that try as mother would, the baby's slippers could not be induced to go on over his chubby little feet. It was necessary in those days to send East for goods, because in the West there were so few stores, and in some parts none, but surely it is not necessary now. A town having as many good .trading places as Leth- bridge has, whose- merchants are helping to build up the town, pay taxes and increase the value of real estate for us all. is good enough for the people to spend the money they have earned in it. It is amazing to hear of the amount of money orders sent to Eaton's weekly by women whose husbands are earning a good living here, and who are often own- ers of real estate and interested, for that reason, in seeing the town grow. That they could help it by buying of local merchants, who put up good stores, keep as good a stock as the market warrants, and, at busy sea- sons, are open late and early to suit the convenience of buyers, never seems to occur to these people. The merchants have rights, of which we do not always think; so before sit- ting down with the January -white- wear catalogue to'.do some ordering from an out of town store, take a few minutes to consider the advantageous circumstances under which the money you have to spend has been earned in Lethbridge, 'and quite like- ly you will decide to support your town by spending your money in it.

Walker returned on Wedn'ee- d.-iy night from Edmonton, where he accompanied by delegates from the eadinff hospitals in Alberta, with the ixception of Medicine Hat and Leth- oridge, interviewed the -provincial government, urging increased assist- ance for the treatment of patients. There was a full meeting of the cabinet, and the delegates were cour- teously received and the promise giv- en that their claims would receive lue consideration. .The. delegates pointed out that in the hospitals in conditions are not the same s those of the eastern provinces ow- ng to there being no rural munici- jalities from which to collect fees, or treatment of patients and because of the large number of immigrants arriving in the province. In Manitoba the government grants a flat rate of 37 1-2 cents per patient ,per day, while in Aiberta the grant is 50 cents for non-paying patients, aiid 25 cents for paying patients, which would on the basis of the num- ber of patients of each class treated, be to a flat rate of 30 cents each. What the delegates-asked for was a flat rate of 50 cents per patient. The delegates also interviewed a number of the private, members of the house and received assurances of support when the bill is introduc- ed. T. E. PATTEWOH, t Office, Oliver Block.

SHOUT OKKK AT All lOdS The William Briggs Publishing Co. state that the two "best sellers" among their publications during the Christmas season were R. H. Ser- vice's "Songs of a and Mrs. Nellie L. McClung's "Sowing Seeds in Danny." The book which followed as a close third was "Anne of Green by Miss L. M. Montgomery, of Prince Edward Is- land. Each .of these books is by a Canadian writer, and in them the far North, the Middle West, and the ex- treme East of Canada are represent- ed. Each, too, is the first venture of its author, and very creditable ventures, too. Mr. Service, of whose "Songs of a Sourdough" twenty-eight thousand copies have been issued, is soon to publish a- new book called "Ballads of a Cheechaco." The lat- ter term means- a and is rather puzzling to those not ac- quainted with the vernacular of the Yukon. Most of us know by this time that a "Sourdough" in Alaska means an old miner, and-that the name originated from a custom that the old miners had, and a most ne- cessary one, of keeping a piece of sour dough for their next baking, as Royal yeast cakes could not be pro- cured always at the corner grocery. The "tenderfoot" did not always ob- serve this custom, and so often came to grief. A friend from Dawson. told me that in order to be a properly initiated "Sourdough" one must have lived in the country long enough to have seen the ice "make and break" in thc Yukon Eiver, and that when one qxialifies congratulations ensue from all the other members of the community. This is a country of "quick turn- in the matter of real estate and business deals, and also in the weather. On Friday, a week ago, the thermometer stood at thirty-one de- grees below zero in the morning, and registered forty degrees above in the change of over seventy degrees. Truth is stranger than fic- tion, we have heard it said, and perhaps the reason that there are so few individuals in the West given to prevarication is that there is no temptation, as a recital of the ordin- ary, actual happenings is picturesque enough, without any recourse to the imagination. Whether the heads of families will agree that tha "actual happenings" during our recent cold spell Were "pieiuiCdiiutt'' QT not, WC do not know, as most of them were kept so busy shovelling eoal into the furnace and telephoning the plumber In Washington, IMPROVED FRUIT LAND brings from to per acre. We sell better lands unimproved at to per acre, according to location. You can make a good living and pay for the planting and cultivating of your orchard, by growing garden truck between the trees. OR You can have your land improved to a six-year old fruit bearing or- chard, for to per acre. We have experienced to do this work and charge per acre for same, which includes clearing, cultivating, supplying and planting two-year old trees (your selection) and the subsequent care of same for four years. Do these prices appear high to you? An Apple Orchard in full bearing, yields from 500 to boxes per acre, and nets the grower from to per box, hence if fruit land will yield a profit of even per acre, that profit equal to ten per cent, on or ONE HUN- DRED AND SIXTY PER CENT, on the actual cost price. How many of the best farms in other countries are netting the own- ers such profits annually on the price they actually paid for the land? We invite comparisons. Do a little figuring for yourself. The climate of THE ARROW LAKE DISTRICT is admirably adapted to the growth of vegetation. The win- ters are so short and mild, that semi- tropical fruits, figs for example, can be successfully grown. The soils of this valley are a com- bination of volcanic ash, sand from the disintegration of igneous rocks, silt from old lake ifcds, and humus from the decay of vegetation. They comprise all the elements necessary to plant life, being from two to three hundred feet in depth, and are of inexhaustible fertility. says the New Y6Yk Wall Street Journal, "are stubborn things and they won't down." .British Co- lumbia possesses lumber resources, greater than all the states of the Union, East of the Rocky Mountains. British Columbia is moreover now recognized as the orchard of the Em- pire. -It has the soil, the climate and it will have the people. NOTE.

They will never be lower and will certainly be higher in a very short time. We do not claim to have the only Fruit Lands in British Columbia, but what we wish, to explain, That our lands were personally se- lected by two old residents of the country, who understood necessary for profitable fruit culture, and who were at the stme fa- miliar with the climate and soil con- ditions of the country. That, at the same time our lands were selected they had practically the choice of the country. That our lands were choseni for tho purpose. of fruit-growing, and their opinion, the best obtainable. That due consideration given to sections requiring irrigation -and those said not to require It. That our lands were with a view to should ;t be found necessary, and can be irrigated at very small expense. That since that time it hat been satisfactorily demonstrated Ir- rigation is not .required. That transportation facilities and conveniencesto market were not over- looked. That the choosing of land in small isolated tracts where and churches could not be maintained, was carefully avoided. That we believe, there are no bet- ter fruit, lands in British Columbia, than we are offering at -the present market price. We are not selling on COMMIS- SION.
