Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 1, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE WEEKLY HERALD Lethbridge Herald PRINTING CO., LTD. W. A. Btduui, irector and Editor. SUBSCRIPTION In Advance fruitful of much hardship, many set- j tiers having lost their holdings after earning them dearly, by the machina- tions of unscrupulous usurers. It is often said that farmers are not a body easily organised, -but in a I matter so intimately o-ffeeting their rights it seerus only right that they should not remain quiescent. The lands bill is likely to meet with ser- rs BACKACHE ADVERTISING Per Month f 1.00 per Inch a yearjious opposition from parties who al- a year I ways put private interest before pub- lic right. It might be well, therefore for settlers throughout the west to strengthen the hands of the minister by some united expression of opinion in favor of the measure. Such a pro THE PRE-EMPTION LAW The new public lands bill of the minister of the interior will come as tidings of great joy to stout-hearted western settlers, points out the Sas- katoon Phoenix. Hon. Frank Oliver knows the wants and the temper of the west and the embodirnont of the preemption clauses in the remodelled proposals is a victory won over strong opposition. It will be realiz- ed that when the measure was intro- duced last year the proposal to grant homesteaders the right to pm-chase an extra quarter section on easy terms was assailed from both sides house. Hon. Frank Oliver made many enemies against the party of privilege and there were rumors that he would be forced to abandon the objectionable clauses. But with that grit and determination which is j characteristic of the pioneer, the niin pose. It would stimulate the zeal of the men who are fighting for the mea sure and intimidate skulking oppon- ents, of it who, afrajd of popular cla- inor, will not openly oppose, but will knife it, if possible, in the dark. FRU IT GROW! NG Lethbridge as a fruit growing dis- fe UtWO SOB ..v Dad's Council did not have a very strenuous time at ihe Court of Revis- ion this year. There were a few pieces of information handed out con- cerning changes in ownership and the kick against the assessment of auto- mobiles.

Conscious that the railway en- terprise would not be a paying one unless the country- was brought un- der cultivation, land was sold at small prices with abates for cultiva- tion. But the rush for land during the past dozen of years has changed all this. Prices have gone up bv leaps and until, the purchase of a quartsr or half section means in most cases a considerable cash pay- ment, or at the best a long, steady- drain upon the annual profits of the settler. The result of this has been a grum- ble loud and deep. Poor men strug- gling to make a home' on the plains have watched with uneasiness the ra- pid rise in land values. They recog- nize that they themselves are render- ing the adjoining land valuable by improvinfr thejr own. and to be held up for a big- price when disposed to buy is ga.ilinjr in the extreme. The pre-emption proposals will mi- tigate this evil to a great degree, and while serving as a further inducement new settiers will enhance wealth and prosperity of those ready settled upon the land.

In the case of settlers who occupy' holdings where BO vacant government land is avail- able a fresh entry involves certain necessary duties, which, however, are in no sense exacting. The measure is fresh evidence of the sincerity of the intentions of the Liberal party. The policy is the broad one of throwing the land open to bona fide settlers who can be de- pended upon to cultivate it. During their term of ofEce the Liberal gov- tion is within his reach.

Xot only has the old Con servative policy hampered settlement and caused needless hardship to home steaders, but it has consolidated the opposition to Liberal reforms. The same parties and corporations to whom the land was gifted are now amaugst the strongest opponents of j any measure for the public good. There are cthor features of the re- vised lands bill which will work out in the interests of the settler. The measure proposes for instance to es- tablish the right 01' a man to the price of the improvement he may make on a homestead in the event of finding it necessary to abandon it. It also safeguards the right of a man incapacitated by illness or accident and preserves his right to his heirs in the event of his death.

KINGSTON. ONTARIO ARTS EDUCATION THEOLOGY MEDICINE SCIENCE (Including Engineering) The Arts Course may be taken with- out attendance. For Calendars, write the Registrar, GEO. Y. CHOWN, J Kingston, Ontario, assist in matter by observing a few general cautions. Camp fires should- not be any larger than neces- sary, and no one should leave, a fire even for a short time, without mak- ing sure that it is thoroughly put out. A lighted match, or cigar end or other burning object should never be thrown down in the woods; it should be thor- oughly extinguished before being thrown away. Fires should nou be built among leaves, rotten wood or in places where they are likely to spread on account o fthe inflatnmable nature of the surroundings; build the fire on a rock if possible, or if there is no rock convenient at least clear away the leaves, humus, etc., down to the mineral soil, if at ail possible, Nor should fires be built against large or hollow logs as in such places it is hard to be sure when they are en- tirely extinguished. If the weather is windy, it is well to confine the fire in a hole, dug right down into the mineral soil. Only a few days ago, newspaper despatches told of very serious fires in the Lake St., John region in Que- bec, destroying one village; these are supposed to have been started by careless fishermen who neglected to extinguish their camp fires. ]STew York, June 'World' says: "With stumps for legs, a stump for his. right arm, and his left hand minus several fingers, Joseph Gilligan. aged eighteen years, swam to the rescue of two boys in a gravel pit poncl at Morris Plains, N. J., and saved their lives. Alexander Patterson and Augustus Monahan, each twelve years old, were in an old boat on the pond, which is about ten feet deep at its greatest depth, and it was at this point that the boys upset the boat while play- ing. Patterson could not swim, he clasped Monahan around the neck. Before he was dragged under, Mona- han cried help. Gilligan was sitting with other boys in the shade of a tree, but out of sight of the pond. He had been show- ing his friends the artificial Dunk took her prize winning forty pound buiiciog to Riverside rark this afternoon. When the dog spied a buck deer he upset Mrs. Dunk .pull- ing the chain from her pick- ed a fight with the deer. The dog missed landing on the first rush and the buck met the second rush with a kick that sent the dog flying. Several times the dog came, only to be floored by the buck, which finally jumped into the air, coming down on all four feei on the prostrate dog, killing him. (From Saturday's Daily.) Last evening at eight o'clock at the residence of the bride's mother, Mrs. Easton, at Staffordville, William Stephen Johnston, dairyman of Loth- bridge, formerly, of Auchterless, Ab- erdcenshire, Scotland, and Miss Nich- olas Waugh Easton of Lethbridge, formerly of New Monklancl, Lanark- shire, Scotland, were marrie.d by Rev. A.M. Gordon. The groom was sup- ported by the bride's brother, James, and the bride by the groom's sister Maggie. After the ceremony was over, ,1 large company of friends par- took of the sumptuous supper pre- pared and lator spent the evening in speeches nn..l music. his parents had p'rocured for him. He had unstrapped the limbs when he heard the cry for help. Net stopping to put them on, Giligan hurried to the pond. Bunging in he swam to the spot, where the boys were struggling, grasped the two lads and pushed them apart. He then swam with one hand and pushed Patterson ashore. Return- ing, Giligan sought Monahan, who was sinking. The cripple also pushed him ashore safely, and the two boys grateful to theii rescuer, carried him to his home, where he received drv clothing. Gilligan, ten years ago, was run over by a trolley car in Brooklyn. He lost one leg above tne knee and the other below the kne'j, his right arm was taken off at elbow, and three fingers from his left hand. He learned to swim a years ago.
