Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 27, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, JUNE 27, 1914 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE FIVE EAR, EAST (1) Native Divers surround the liners (3) Pier and custom Island and entertain passengers by diving of Jqlo :_ for coins. r Native House on .Stilts. (2) Ancient fortress surrounding Empress of-Asia in Manila town of Jolo. B.ay, Canada has just forged another link in her commercial chain with the Orient. She has extended her routes until now they include Man- ila, the largest city and chief trail- ing centre in tlic PhUlipine Islands1 In adding this port to her long chain of connections in the Far East, Can- ada, through her most powerful transportation agent, the Canadian Pacific, has rendered very signal service to Manila as well as to her- self. Heretofore, the best time from the Pacific Coast of North America to Manila uy any regularly establish- ed trade route was twenty-eight days. By the inauguration of the steamship sci'viee of the Empress KtegmtihiiJS of the Pacific to Manila' this lime has hecn cut to seventeen days, thureby lopping oR 11 days from the best time ever made. Obviously the advantage is great. It brings, Vancouver, the chief Can- adian city on the Pacific, a very lucrative trade and connects Canada with this rich tropical "land of pine and palm" and in such a way that all others are distinctly second. From the PhilUpine point of view, ft js most advantageous for it opens a market 11 days closer and.hrings the islands and their vast resources of minerals, fruits, tobacco, rice, sugar; rubber and hard woods within closer range of the countries to which they, look for purchasers. Merchants of New York, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia as well as ila have been striving for years to cut the in transporta- tion terms, is time, between the Phil- lipincs and the North American ports. Added to these advantages is an- other benefit which transportation men declare will be by no means small. This is the tourist travwl that will undoubtedly flow in an an- nually increasing stream to the Phil- lipines, as the world wide water and rail routes of the vast Canadian Pa- cific system will be diverted to make Manila another attractive visiting place for the traveller to the Far East. For ages the riches' of the PMllir pine- Islands have been recognized by the peoples of the world and trade relations have been carried' on :first; by the Chinese and Malays, then by the .Spanish, the Portuguese, the English, the Danes, the Americans, and now l-ha Canadians. War and re- bellion, bloodshed in ,the name of Christianity and Mohammedanism, tribal conflicts and strife of one kind and another have for centures swept from one end of this island group to the other. It has only been in the past decade that decided steps have lieen made towards improvement and development, with the co-operation and participation of foreign capital. hi the short period the American government has been working .with the natives of 'the Philippines to- wards civilizing the country, marvel- lous changes have been wrought and today these as the first port of call-and "the chief city; arc attracting the attention oE the travelling and tourist public. Eu- ropean and American customs have been adopted both in the hotels and trains, so that the tourist will not feel at a loss in a strange land. Two Out of Every Three Pupils Have Bad Teeth CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE To the Lethibridge 'Public School Board: I beg leave to submit my report re Medical Examination of the schools for 1913 ami 1914: In -all I have examined 1579 (students and they are divided as follows: High and Central, Westminster, 371; Oalbraith, 220; Fleetwood, 235; Hardieville, 1570. ,The percentage of defects found in eacii school and the 'total percentage ptre as follows: Gal- Fleet- Hardie- minster braith wood ville Total H. fl. 7. 8.

I did not mention vaccination in the above list, but will say that ev- ery student cither had a vaccination mark, or hold a certificate that he had been vaccinated or was not phy- sically strong enough to have it done, This has been one of the picas- ing features of the examination this year. There have not been 3113" epidemics Of any kind during the school year -owing to the fact that we got a good- proportion of the students ex- amined. It is impossible to yet them all, as sonic of them only go a very short time and they have come and Korte before one can get around to them. The percentage of defects is less ibis year than it.was last, taking itj as a whole, still not the decrease one I would like to sec. There is no reason in the work! why some of these de-" fects are not remedied by the par- ents with very-little cost, and at the same time give the child a much bet-1 ter chancefto fight his or her way Ihe world. A great many-Jinvc hwn reported with defective teeth) but so many of thfm arc just at stage where the teeth are changing, from the first to the permanent set, and are very often not worth filling, and at the same j time arc a help 1o the permanent ones. While 1 have not time to dis- tinguish between' those pupils whose' teeth need attention and those who j will have to wait, parents can tinri this out without cost by calling on j a dentist. There f.s no uncertainty about somfi of them that they should j have something done, onft of the' prominent dentists happened to be in j my office as I was writing this re- port and I was speaking to him on the subject, and he suggested that children should make more use of the tooth-brush. There is another point that I have not mentioned in the report and that is the cleanliness of the schools. The condition as a whole is very good in- deed but there is a small percentage that should have more attention at home. This would not cost anything more than a little extra time, which I would think well spent. We. that niivke the examination have a far hotter chance to see those con- ditions than the teacher that is with them every day. Home of them are very hard to examine as their clothes are sewed in places where buttons should be and one dislikes to take out the stitches, especially in cold weather, as one has no means of fastening them up again. I have real- ly SOPH as many as three heavy siiirts, a sweater, a vest and a coat on one boy and he all day in school that-way, which is enough in itself to- take the life and ambi- tion out of any one. I would think it would he a good idea [or the teach- ers to take a little time and give a few lessons on personal hygiene. Pcr- haps you will think I am a little hard, but if you went through these cases as have, done yoit would see Ihe necessity of dwelling on it. It is very hard not to make comparisons in the children from this standpoint' when we know that a. little morn time and cnrc is nil thnt is necde'l ii tii-Jio them look nice and a great help, to their general condition. In regards vision, percent, of .the whole school have defective vision. I found quite a number who told me that they had glasses hut would not wear them because the others; made fun of them and called them names. It seems too bad and it should be someone's business to stop such things. The- defective hearing in the schools is not large and a great deal of that in all probability is simply due to wax in the ear. It would be impos- sible to make an external examina- tion of all ears at the school to find out the cause, and anyway, I think it enough for the parents to know that there is trouble and it is then for them to find out the cause. Enlarged tonsils is another thing that is quite prevalent which shows 14 per cent, and which I think the parents should look after, for I do' not think there is anything that makes a pupil more backward at school than enlarged tonsils and ade- noids, t have only shown 4.5 per cent with adenoids, but these were the ones- where the symptoms were much in evidence, but 1 venture to say that 75 per cent, of the tonsil cases have adenoids also. j TOTAL DEAD NUMBER 189 Murray was one of the first ,to out of the mine after the explosion, went back for .his sons. His own body was among the first brought out dead, 'closely Followed by those of his sons. They formerly resided in Blair- more. Their remains were taken to Fernle for interment.

Greatest Crop West Ever Harvested CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE found the belief was gradually taking hold that it would be better to-de- velop the. surrounding country rather than to endeavor to attract a great- er population than the surrounding j country would support. Had this pol- I icy, which has been consistently been followed earlier, there would not be the disappointment that is found in some places at the pres- ent, and for which every cause but j the right one is blamed. The external eye troubles made up of. blefcrUes, which is a per cent, of the male population simple thing in itself and easily Millcrest has been wiped out.

This docs not necessarily mean that they will be Till tlioir llitii if they are properly looked after dur- ing their growing years, most, of 'them under good conditions will grow up to be useful men and wo- men. Goitre or enlarged thyroid shows itself in- 1.7 per cent, and mostly in girls from L2 to If! years. think a great deal of it will disappear., as they grow'older. Enlarged cervical glands shows 2.5 per cent., which is of a 'tubercular tendency hut not necessarily present. These cases should he looked after in regards to general health.
