Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 15, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta PLUCK AND GOOD NATURE OF NEWG.G. Prince Alexander of Tcck Haa Rea! Business Capacity, Should. Be Popular. FOUGHT IN BOER WAR His Charming Wife Was Known as "Princess Alice of Won- derland" When a Child. PLUCK, business capacity, geni- ality, and good nature arc the chief chnracterlsUcs of; Prince Alexander of Tcck, who is to suc- ceed UIQ Unite of Conriaught as Gov- ernor-General of Canada, when the latter's term of office expires In ''October next. "That thB .Prince .possesses Just those qualities which will make him popular in Canada Is generally says London Tit-Bits, "ills democratic unassum- ing ways will undoubtedly appeal to our overseas cousins. In the Army the "Tommijs" loved him because' he had ho and know his business. As a .fellow- officer put it, when they went out with the Prince's regiment- the Seventh Hussars, and first saw ac- tive service in the Matabcle War in IS9G, "lie was not a military clothes- horse, but one who knew what sol- diering meant." He was no shirker from "roughing: and he took risks with the most reckless ot our sol- diers out there, being on several oc- casions mentioned In despatches. A striking illustration of his Royal tllghness's enthusiasm for soldering is illustrated by the fact that when the South African War broke out the Prince at once volunteered for immediate service, and within forty- eight hours sailed with the Inniskill- v ing Dragoons, who took part In the opcraUdns' round CoJesborg, the routing of, General Cronje, the relief of Kimberlpy, and the march to Bloemfontein. His Unassuming Way OF one of the "I-rince's South Af- rican fights an' interesting etory is told. An Australian war correspondent who rode towards one of the khaki-clad regiments was ap- proached by a young, unassuming man, who.was anxious to hear news of the outside world. "Have you been under he asked the correspondent. "I should was -the reply, "and I don't mucb appreciate it. iAnybody who likes can have my. share." have to go under fire whether ive like it or said the Quiet young Englishmen. "At a chirped the Corn- MaIIc- The young man shrugged his shoulders and walked away. Then the Australian heard that tlie un- assuming young soldier was Erincc Alexander of Teck, and he went back in the direction from which he had conifl. That, however, was just the Prlnces'a way. Kays one who met him during the war, "I once traveled half a day with him., net knowing ivho he was. Then I learned how earnest a soldier the Prince is, and liow thoroughly wedded to his pro- I't'ssion. He is a good trekker, and a ijood camp-man, As a boy before be went to 'Eton, the 'Prince spent his days at Ken- sington Palace and Lodge, Richmond Park, where, with his two brothers and sister, Queen Mary, he romped and ran like a merry eand- lioy. He was her [Majesty's, favor- ite, and it was a black day when he first went off to "prepara- tory" for Eton, for, in spite of the seven years' difference in their ages, the sister and brother were eon- is tan I companions. Business Capacity AT Eton tlie Prince was known as ood-tempered, jolly fellow, very- fond of games, a roputatlonpwhlch he has always maintained. The business enterprise and cnpa- .billtlcs of Prince Alexander were displayed when ho carried on the task of raising funds for the Mid- dlesex' Hospital, begun by his brother, the ffite Prince Francis of Teck, four years ago. In this work lie was largely assisted by his wife, Priccss Alexander, who devoted a great deal of time to practical phil- anthropy. Indeed-few big charitable schemes are. launched In does not take a personal interest. A daughter ot the late Duke of Albany, and a sister of the reigning Duke of the Princess Alexander of Teck married in 3901, when she was twenty-one years of ago. ".Exactly how mucb truth there may bo In romantic stories that are told of foreign aspirants to the band of "Princess Alice as she was cnllcd in her younger days; because, of her passionate de- votion to the works of Lewis Car- roll, Is not known; but It is stated that she early determined, like her cousin the Princess Roynl, that she would net marry a fore-ten prince. Certainly her marriage to Prince: Alexander gave the grcates_t sfilis- marrlage has been an ideally -happy i imp, and thero is little doubt thru the Prjncess, like her husband, will en- dear herself to Canadians.

This is his Bible! he conducts a part oi_ trie and whose members declare real help to them. An interesting fact about is that It lias in its 200 membership about twenty Roman ho attend regularly and''who have a small'organization, exclusive- ly Roman 'Catholic, within the class organization. In his instructions to'thls Class, Sir. Rockefeller invariably Uses' many il- lustrations from the business world, but never refers to himself or to his business affairs......... The two other, activities, both of them national in their relations, arc social service, with particular atten- tion to morals, and evangelism, in which ho is a firm believer and gen- erous supporter. The moral work came a.3 result of acceptance of a "white investi- gation committee, and finally fore- unship of a grand jury. Later the work has developed Into an insti- tution and. into national relations.
