Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 23, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD MONDAY, JULY 23, 1917 GUARANTEED TO CONTAIN .NO IMPURITIES. A little of Sunlight foci  \ long way; every particle is Eure; there is nothing to 1 arm the clothes or impede the rapid progress of the wash. Every cake of Sunlight Soap carries a $5,000 guarantee of purity. ui Sunlight Soap FEW BOYS ARE IE ON LEAVE ( to tho TTcraUD Frrnir. July -2.-Four more boys from the front in France have reached Feniio to spent! :\ short furlong!! prior to entering the convalescent hospital at the coast to undergo additional examinations and treatment of vounds received in action upon the memorable field of Vimy Ridge, where so many gallant Canadian hoys met the enemy and left a vivid impression upon the imaginations of the German jnind regarding rabble from the west. Corporal Wm. Carroll and Privates John Gill, Haynes and Armour were in the 54th and 225th Battalions. Corporal Carroll and Pte. Gill were of the 54til and are Coal Creek boys. The other two were in the 225th. Pte. Haynes also being a Coal Creek boy. Tte. Gill bears with him what is likely to prove a life-long disability in the shape of a shattered elbow, caused by a machine gun bullet. Pte. Haynes has ti stiff knee, but it is hoped that this may be improved with careful surgical attention. Mayor Uphill and others were at the station to meet the boys and they were taken to Coal Creek by auto. Pte. Gill also brings with him another souvenir in the shape of the Jlilitary Service Jledal, awarded for bravery on the battlefield in aiding wounded comrades while under severe tire from the enemy machine guns. Major MafTatt was by his side, and they were rendering first aid to a wounded comrade when the major admonished him, telling him that he should lie down, but just as he was in the act of obeying the caution, he was struck by a bullet in the elbow and thus was added to those to whom his major was rendering his aid. Major Moffatt came off with no more serious injury than a scratch from a passing bullet, which left its mark upon his neck. Vimy Hidge will long live in the memory of Fernie people, as it was there that Major R. J. Black laid down his life as a result of a third hit from the same murderous machine gun fire through which the Canadian boys waded to get at the Huns face to face. The facing was not good for the Germans and many brave boys from the west Bhed their blood upon that ridge, and in the words of Lincoln at Gettysburg, consecrated the ground beyond what mere words can do in fixing that spot of France in memory of the martyrs who won it with their lives. All the boys serving under Major Moffatt speak in the highest terms of their commander as an officer, and as a man, every moment of his life with them at the front. i These boys came across in the Meta- gama. a vessel which seems to have become a floating homo for returning soldiers. They will return to Vancouver after a short visit to friends, and while all of them are anxious to get hack to the front, it is hardly probable that all of them will recover in time to again become active soldiers on the living line. Major Moffatt went away with his company as captain and has won his promotion through constant care of his men and unflinching bravery on the battlefield. He is the only officer remaining with the boys who went with him. all the others having either been killed or transferred to other commands. SAFE PASSAGE FOR ALL DUTCH SHIPS The Hague, July 21.-The British government has agreed to leave a safe passage open for Dutch overseas shipping pending the result of negotiations now proceeding between the two governments. It is officially announced. This is probably in return for the Dutch having undertaken to bring food for the Belgian relief commission in their own ships. PAGET RESIGNS SEAT London, July 21.-Almerlc Hugh Paget has resigned his seat in parliament In order to provide n seat for Sir Eric Geddes, the new first lord of the admiralty. Mr. Paget has sat for the Cambridge borough constituency clnce 1010. 1 A number of Mobile, Ala., girls have adopted the fad of branding upon their bare arms the initials of their sweethearts who are in military service. The process is said to he as painless as it is startling. It is usually accomplished by the devoted ono pasting court plaster initials of her fiance on the skin. A few trips to the eastern shore, where the skin is browned by the sun, completes the work and the letters of the loved one's name stand out in pure white after the plaster is removed. ALBERTA'S NURSE NOMINEE INTERVIEWED London. J-ily 20.-Catherine McAdams. with the medicals at Orpington hospital, who was nominated as women's candidate for tho Alberta legislature interviewed by the Daily Express, said: "You want women in parliament because they are less likely than men to forget all the sacrifices of humanity in the war and what it me&ns. Women think in terms of human life, men in terms of money, and tho government's great problem after the war will be social organization.. The life of women must be made less rural in Canada; this is being done in part by the Alberta department of Agriculture." : *�>>>>�>�>>) .> ONTARIO BABY I MADE STRONG *tr�.
