Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 19, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta m Daily VOL. II. LETHBRIDGK, ALBERTA, MONDAY, JULY 19, 1909. NO. ill OUR FUTURE WHAT OF IT? Rev. A. MS Gordon Uses Recent Trip As a Text Preaching yesterday morning at Knox church from the text, "The land whither you go to possess it" Mr. Gor- don took the theme of "Country a ad Character." It was suggested by drive to Rocky Coulee last Thbrsday. Three or four years ago lie kn' that stretch of country well, now he could hardly recognize it. The chang- es are incredible. One feels like Rip Van Winkle waking from a sleep of half'a. century. The old familiar Mac- leod trail is grass grown. Farms and fences are found, where till lately one saw only some cattle on the yellow prairie and a man on foot was the rarest of sights, one state of things j has almost vanished; another -has, be- gun. What will the :end be? What will" be the character of the soil? What the character of the people a score of years hence? The work of the public schools in making good Canadians and British subjects of the people -flocking to Alberta, is of vast import- ance. But school and church must always go side by side. -The condi- tion of the country just now is exact- ly that of many of its wo- men. The time of unknown possibili- ties is gone, with the years of child- hood big with undeveloped capabil- ities for good or evil. The free roam- ing ranching is almost ended with its years of boyhood when thoughts and hopes roam at large. The years of settlement and steady work have come, as they come to men and wo- men entering in this life career. If this career Is to be of any use, it demands the same Skill, the same pa- tience that is needed to agricultural life, only more so. There is no doubt of this wide land of wide resources becoming one of the .greatest grain producing countries of the .Egypt was in the time of Christ. But will our people come' up to this standard? The ques- tion is: 'Will they possess the land or the land.possess them? Character out- lasts crops. What are we making of this country, of this good' land, God has given us? What are we making of ourselves? -BIG PAY DAY AT FRANK Mounted Police to do Service for Fiva More Frank, July Is pay day in Frank. Over was paid out-j by C. A. C. C. Co. j It was stated by Inspector Belcher j of the R.N.W.M.P that the Dominion j government had renewed the old agreement with the Alberta govern- j ment with regard to leaving the po- lice in charge of the province for an- j other five years. People in the Crow's I Nest Pass consider it a good move as it requires police with experience and j courage to force the foreign element j to keep the "law. There will be an j attachment established in Hill Crest j with two R.N.W.M.P. stationed (there in a few days. There are two police in Frank, two in Lille and two in Coleman. v SACAMS DEATH AT FERN1E BACK AT WORK AT ROYAL COLLIERIES The miners ,ja.i the Royal Col- 4c lieries went back to work this morning on the A.
