Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 29, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta LlTHtftlDOt, ALllftTA, FRIDAY, JANUARY ft, UN. MOVING ADVANCED VAUDEVILLE, VAUDE1VILI THRffi PEARCE SISTERS LEW DIAMOND _ MOVING i. ueippe Circuit 1908 2. Cumbersome Baby 3. Latest Style Airship ALL FEATURE' FILMS SoNG "I'd Rather Two-Step Than Waltz, Bill" COMPLETE CHANGE OF VAUDEVILLE TO-NIGHT To Be Dyspeptic Is To Be 'Miserable. Dyspepsia ia the prevailing civilized life. It is largely due to groti errors in diet, over-eating, too free indul- gence in stimulants and over-taxing Ktomaoh with indigestible food, eating too rapidly without chewing the food suffici- ently, indulging in hot biscuits, pastry, pickles, confectionery, etc. Constipation, headache, heartburn, sour stomach, distress after eating, belching of v.-incl, faintness, sud fulboas and riun of the stomach are a few of the many distressing symptoms of the poor, weary dvspeptic. Burdock Blood Bitters regn- htes the stomach, stimulates the secretion of the saliva and gastric juice tc facilitate digestion, removes acidity, purifies -the blood, and tones up the system to full health and vigor, and thereby cures dys- pepsia and all its tributary diseases. Mr. Amos Sawler, Gold River, N.S., was greatly troubled with dyspepsia, and after trying several doctors to no effect, I commenced taking Burdock Blood Bitters and I think it is the best medicine tliere is for that complaint."

But in its anxiety to boom Leth- bridge it sometimes gives impres- sions that are misleading, to put it mildly. Of late a number of dailies have published a despatch sent out from Lethbridge that a greater flow of gas had been struck at Bow Island than any of the Medicine Hat wells give. Naturally the headings read, "Gas at Lethbridge." The fact is that Bow Island is only 25 miles from Medicine Hat and was always sup- posed to be within the gas area. Lethbridge is 70 miles from Bow Is- land and can scarcely claim gas at that distance, especially when that pushing little city has tried for gas twice and failed tc get it. And speaking about gas, the same city is making much of Mr. Grace's figures that gas MIGHT be found at Lethbridge at' a depth of 3700 feet, prpviding that the slope remains re. gular for 100 miles. This is only pos- as it is possible that it is much steeper or takes a big turn Proceeding Of the Legislature Edmonton, Jan. the same Unit- that Leader Haultain of the Saskatchewan Opposition was stand- ing manfully up to endorse and sup- port the policy of his government the matter of guaranteeing the bonds of railway conin2Jiis2 to se- cure Saskatchewan twelve hundred miles of branch lines. Leader Robert- son of the Alberta Opposition was declaring in the House at Edmonton that if the Government proposed to guarantee bonds of the rail-way com. panies. then he would stand like Horatio at the bridge, guarding the honor of the Province. Of course it is statesmanlike to havt- a policy and it is glorious to be a hero at a bridge, hut Leader Robertson will have" neither a poli- cy nor heroism when the thing is over. Mr. McKenny of St. Albert, gavt; in anecdote form the predica- ment in which the distinguished leader would find himself at the close. "When they were building the Un- ion said Mr. McKenney, 'the line crossed a reservation of a tribe of Indians. The Indian Chief took the matter up with the Govern- ment at Washington and with the building railways for Albertu, if every- one is for it, who should bo against it? Mr. McKi.-mic, of Maclcod, was speaking to the motion to reply to the speech from the Throne.. In the course- of his remarks he called atten- tion to the fact that while LeaderJ Haultain of Saskatchewan support, ed the Government in the effort to secure railways, Leader Robertson of Alberta declared his intention to op- pose the Government to the death. "What reason did he give for sup- porting the asked Mr Robertson. "Oh, said McKenzie, "there has been so much twaddle talk about our being deprived of our lands that I dont' intend to answer." "Mr. Haultain in supporting hii Government's motion, observed tha1 if the Province owned its own lands it could build its own roads, but that since it did not own them the method of the government was wise and time- ly. The Opposition in Alberta, may well follow the lead of their Sas- katchewan brethren in this regard. Bocauso we have not our lands is no just reason why we should get along for the next fifty years without roads. The guaranteeing of the bonds of roads, if such should prove to be the Government's place, can hardly sibly over cost us a red cent. That the roads will pay, if at all wisely placed, is a foregone conclusion. Neither will the action impair OUT borrowing power, for the very rea- on that the lines built will pay, and instead of costing us, wfll result in the increase of Provincial wealth many tens of millions. Leader Robertson of the Opposition got tangled in the Law the other day at Edmonton, There have been: pass- ed altogether by the first Parliament something like a, hundred and eighty pills. Nothing was said of a hun_ I dred and seventy-nine of these by the leader of the Opposition in Ms review of the bad legislation enacted, but the other one, the Employer's Com- pensation Act, he picked out for the "horrible example." Although he ad- mitted this to be a good law and railway company them not to cross his land. gUJli tUIU WALJJ. 1'U.C t.v m, o. gwu.

The Indian Chief :iad profited by the sale of beef cattle to the contractors and one day while out looking at some fat steers with one oi the butchers an old cow made a run at them. The butcher had with him an umbrella, and as the cow- charged he spread the umbrella and the cow took fright and ran away. ''Keep wise, Indian Chief, said the old Indian to himself, and off he went to a trading place and bought an umbrella. He took it out on the track and waited till he saw the Over- land Limited "Your blood be on your own he cried, and as the engine ran down upon him he raised the umbrella. They picked him up for about four miles along the track, a dismembered example .of the fallacy of trying to stop an express train. While the speaker hoped the Opposition .Lead- era! did a good thing when ha intro- duced it, yet it was deserving of the censure of the great Censor. "A man" working on a building may fall and break a he cried, "and yet un- less he falls thirty feet he cannot re- cover damages." Now I submit that this is ridiculous.
