Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 10, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 1916 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE FIVE I Initial Spring Showing Of Recognized Standard in Latest Styles of FOOTWEAR FOR MEN ... WOMEN AND CHILDREN . . The Revival of Parliament By Arthur Hawkca, in the Christian Guardian. Olio who was brouKlit. uj) ol' the atrcngtli from the fnct thai: Sir George Istraltest of the Methodist porsua-i Foster Is not only a member ot the slon cherishes the sense of rcoral IUHB>f I'w stiouiit] ndvieo,-it will l>o ouiitlduntlul. ORIRLCCA ASM miENCE 1 cedliifi youth. We wore alwuy.s look- liiK for tlio cloud tho hIzc or a nian'H hand, and listcniiiK for the thundor, the gutluM-ed dynamic of thn sky which announced that showers were soon to fall. The Htato Is the seven-j day-a-'.veek church, in which the trl- hiilc to Caesar in none the the Irihutii of a humble and coiitrite heart , because 11 Is exjiressed In terms of committees and billH and ballot boxes and the reports of returning omccrs. I In parliament yo\i neither look for a row of legislators at the ))enitent form, nor expect to see phalanxes of Ihora arrayed in while sheets. Con- fes-iion is good: but Ihere can bo too nmch of a good thlnf. As obedience is better than sacrifice, it Is more blessed to show a new spirit than to mourn over un old failing. Still, the now Mouse of Commons is bettor furnished with mourners' benclies than the old one was, and every now and then you hear it asking, with unmistakable sincerity, what it must do to , 1)0 saved from the worse legacies of the past. I Any man with the power and courage to touch the House of Commons always wins a gratifying response. A.s the session proceeds the readiness to , occupy higher ground is more appar-|ent, the willingness to recognize open-: ly the worth of honorable gentlemen opposite becomes more willing. It is not all the work of the llro, excellent as the effect of that disaster was upon the morale of opponents who were thankful to Providence for escape from the aamo i)eril. The fire has released for the public eye an amonnt of pure humanity that was tliere all the time, bondaged to ideas of political propriety that belong to a far less enlightened, though quite recent age. However it may reflect the worse features of partisan life, the House of Commons is really better than its average form. Now and then a day come.s when you rejoice with exceeding joy over the manifestation of its inherent Quality, when it does justice to itself and to the country which It desires to serve. Such a day was Thursday, when speeches were made by the junior member for Halifax, by tho member for North Toronto and by the member for Medicine Hat. The j lutUviduals east, the centre and the west spoke with one voice, one heart and, indeed, with one soul. A paraphrase of what they said? "baying aside every weight and the sin that doth bo easily beset us, let us run with patience the race set before us." They know from luKlde how patron ago pollutes everything ft touches. To read what they isnld is to know that they were spenking In sincerity and truth. Those who have hail tne advantage of dlHfuH.ting thi.s matter privately with thorn and with others know how sincere they are. If you had heard tho cry of gratitude that went up from both sides of the house when Sir George siioke against tUo canker whicli Is eating Into our vlr. illty, you would have known that here Is something on which all patriots in public life are agreed, and that It is up to all good men outside to come to the aid of their party in securing an epoch of better things. I had come back lo tho house from a visit to a local option town in Dun-das county; we luid had an oxcellent rocnilting meeting in the Methodist church, by far the largest building In the place. They told me that tho petition for provincial )irohlbttlon had been signed there and elsewhere by those who were most beset by the drink ovil. Well, the House of Commons is full of men who feel that way about patronage. Mr. Buchanan declared that ho would rather his party remained In opposition than be personally saddled with the incubus of patronage. You know a man who when he came here was annoyed at the idea that no greater happiness could come to a man than that which arises from the power to appoint your friends to offices for wliich their spirits long as the hart pants for the water brooks. That man today would thltik hla bitterest opponent well punished i( he had to dodge the offlce-seekers who make of parliament a purgatory. Of another member it was aald to me today by one of his staunchest supporters, "He has been made 'an old man by four years of the patronage In our riding." Sir, when it hath conceived, bring-oth forth death. Patronage, when It has had its way. Sir George Foster says, "breaks yp government after government and party after party." The strength of sin is the law. The strength of patronage is the election law and the funds which. It Is as-'; sumed, electioneers must draw from and corporationB. One National Preparedness does not come from guns and dreadnoughts alone, but from men who are fit for tlie day's work. The making of men is a question of food and rational exercise. You can't build stalwart men out of an unbalanced "ration." Shredded Wheat Biscuit contains all the material needed for building the perfect human body. It is the whole wheat grain made digestible by steam-cooking, shredding and baking. One or more Shredded Wheat Biscuits for breakfast with milk or cream makes a man fit for work or play. It is ready-cooked and ready-to-serve. Made in Canada. cannot recall when the beginning and the ending ot evil in the body politic was bo frankly, so Influantlally avowed in parliament as it was yesterday. Unless all tho signs belle, parliament is ready for an advance. But parliament depends upon the powers In the country, if it is loft Isolated from the public opinion which can express Itself most potently In the personal word more than it can In the press, It may sink again into the semi-indifferent, seml-cynlcal temper which too frequently distinguishes Its attitude toward itself. For a real revival of civic nobility In parliament there must be a corresponding change outsido. And that change, as the situation presents itself from tho meridian of an Ottawa which welcomes such manifestations as those ot Mr. MacLean, Sir Georgo Foster and Mr. Buchanan, depends on the individual citizen communicating his aspiration to his neighbor, and getting something done in readiness for the next election, which may he R far more real testing ground ot faith and works than a conference or a convocation. COL. OGILVIE TO COMMAND QUNS Victoria. B.C., March 7.-Col. A. T. Ogilvle, D.O.C., ot military district No. 11, has been offered and has accepted the command ot a western brigade o� artillery for overseas service. Tha area in which the brigade will be recruited is not yet known. Risking his life 'In the icy waters of the lower Arrow Lakes, being plunged into the depths throe times while his team of horses and sleigh were lost, W. S. Johnston ot Edge-wood, B. C, formerly of Lethhrldge, succeeded in saving the three sacks of mail which he was delivering to Edgewood. Mr. .lohnston had undertaken tho mail contract between Needles and Edgewood, a distance of eight miles, owing to the discontinuance of the C.P.R. mall service steamer. The road being heavy Mr. Johnston took his team over the lake and was within three miles of ISdgewood on the south trip with a ton of freight in addition to the mall sacks when the back runners of the sleigli dropped through the Ice, dragging tho front part and thon the team of horses in quick succession. Mr. Johnston succeeded in saving the three sacks ot mail by lierolc efforts, plunging Into the water and below the surface in order to rescue the last one. The horses were drowned and the freight and sleigh lost. Jlr. Johnston formerly operated a dairy in Lethhrldge, and is well known here.

Y. Experiments at Doctor Pierce's Hospital for several years proved that there is no other eliminator of uric acid that can be compared to it. For those cnaily recognized symptoms of inllnra-mation -as backache, scalding urine and frequent urination, as well as sediment In the urine, or if uric acid in the blood has caused rheumatism, it is simply wonderful how surely "Anuric" nets. The beat of results are always obtained in cases of noute rhpumatism in the joints, in gravel and gout, and invariably the pains and stiffness which so frequently and persistently accompany trie disease rapidly disappear, Go to your nearest drug store and simply ask for a 50-cent package of "Aunrio," manufactured by Dr. Pierce, or Bend 10 cents to Dr.' Pierce for a large trial package. 1/ you snspect kiclnoy or bladder trouble send him a Bimipfo of your water and describe Byinptoms.

Mr. Maclxjan, of Halifax: "I am not now engaging in the unprofitable task of accusing tho present administration of being more guilty than others. But when and where is it going to end? Is this not the time in our history when reforms should appear, and should not we who are here today as the people's representatives avail ourselves of this opportunity to do real service to the state, now and hereafter? I think all reflecting men have thought more of this during the past few months than ever before in their lives. Surely the fact that many of our citizens are sacrificing their lives for the nation and for principles should prompt ,us to adopt higher principles in public expenditures, to'deal more justly with the taxes of the pu'bllc, and save democracy from the corrupting influences flowing from Improperly expended public moneys. Should not members of parliament be leaders in the movement? . . The estimates of the Canadian parliament is the j book to read and to revise If we want to bring about reform in public expenditure, the reduction ot patronage evils, and generally political and commercial corruption; for political lite Is not alono In need of regeneration in Canada." i Sir George Poster, of North Toronto: "Patronage almost always causes tlie dry rot and disintegration that | break up government after govern- : ment and party after party, and I wish | now. In the white heat and light of, this groat contest and struggle and , the self-sacrifice that we are called ' upon to make, that we might speak from the heart out, and make an agreement in this country between parties, that hereafter patronage shall not be applied by political parties in the construction of our public works. ... If there is any laxity in the public virtue of this country today. It there is any canker of public corruption, in ninety-nine cases out ot a hundred you can trace it to the baleful effect of political party pat- i ronage. . . . The thing that we \ especially- need to do now in this | country is to throw old shibboleths aside, forget-many of us-the the-' ories that we have retained from our boyhood days, face conditions as they ; are In this country, and work toge-, ther, both parties and all tho people, for a sane, solid, syateraatio mobilization ot the best products aiid the best torcos ot Canada," Mr. Buchanan, ot ^1;edIcine Hat; Since this war commenced T have changed my viewpoint on many sub. jects. We have developed tho high-est Ideals of citizenship, and out of this war will come a better Canada, a better Empire, and, I hope, a bettor world. . . . AVo nvufit abandon tho petty things ot iiartizanshlp. . . I have even come to the conclusion that I would much rather remain In oppo-Bltlon that boct.ji6 a supporter of a government and have to handle patronage. During tho war at all events, 1 think the patronage system should be wiped o�t."
