Cherish Your Childhood Dear don't be so often wish ing you were grown up to women that you will ueglect your childhood In a rush and hurry of these fas times, there is danger that you will reach and strain after "young lady hood too much. Be girls a while loving, obedient and industrious. Wornaunooci, with its privileges and power, its burdens and will come soon enough On this point one has said: "Wai patiently, my children, through the whole time of your girlhood. Go no- after womanhood, come to you Keep out of public view. .Cultivate refinement and modesty. The care and responsibilities of life will come soon enough. When they come, you will meet them, 1 trust, as true wo- men should. But, oh, be not un- wise as to throw away your jnrlliOGd Kob not yuurseif of this beautiful sea- son, which, wisely spent, will bright- en all vour future life. Not Over-worked. Numberless alleged to be hurt by overwork, do not work half enough. Their trouble comes from superabundance of'leisure and activ- ity. They yawn through three or four hours in the office or counting room, are too indolent to walk up town, eat too heavy and rich a din- ner, go out afterwords to see merr chants, bankers' and the and I join boon companions who wait I around billiard tables or sit at cards, and keep very thirsty until the drowsy steeples toil two and three. This is oi IflaairdtDmhktDW overwork, but overwork in the wrong direction, and of a very different kind from that supposed. Overwork covers a multitude of bad habits; it is made a. scape goat for countless transgres- sions, it is very often a shallow pre- tense, a miserable sham. While, there arc far too-many who there are a great many that .break down and kill, themselces by indulgence ..and dissipations. Very decidedly, overwork is overdone. Appreciate Your Mother The graveyards are full of mothers who died taking care of their child- ren. Better appreciate yOur-'inOuiei" before your appreciation of her will be no kindness to her, and the post mortem regrets will be more and more j oi an agony -as the years, pass on. Big j headstones: of polished Aberdeen and the best "epitaphs which the family put together could compose and a gar- land of whitest roses from the con- servatory are often the attempt to at- one for the thanks we ought to have uttered in living ears and the kind words that would have done more good thaji all the cajla lilies-.aver piled up on the silent mounrs of r.he- ceme- teries. The world makes apjplauditory aclo. 'over the work of mothers who have raised boys to be great men and most of our own readers could turn to their buoks and find the names of fifty distinguished men who had great. mother, Wal- ter Scott's St. the, Benjamin West's mother.' Btft who praises mothers or what the3r do for daughters who make the homes of this lond. We do not know of an in- stance ei such recognition. You nev- er hear a word in .appreciation of the self-denial, of the fatigues and good sense and prayers which those iHotrL VTS. go through who ;navigate a family of girls from -the- edge of the cradle. to the schoolhouse door and from .the. schoolhouse door up to the marriage altar. That is an achievement wliich the eternal. God celebrates high, up in the heavens, though, .for it human; hands so seldom clap faint applause. My! My! What a time that mother had with those youngsters, and. if she had relaxed -care and work and advice and solicitation of heavenly help, that next generation would have land- ed in the .poor house, idiot asylum-or penitentiary. It is while she is living _ but 'riiever. while she is dead, that j some, girls call their mother "mater- I nal or "the old woman." LOCKHART RETURNS LIBERAL MEETING In of the candidature of W. A. Buchanan will be bold in 1 OLIVER'S HALL, MARCH 18 Speeches will be Given by J W. C Simmons, ex-MP.P. i and the Candidate Opposition Speakers Invited CHAIR TAKEN AT 8 P M. I I GOD SAVE THE KING To the Electors Of the City TO Fernic. B. C. March 17. At a meeting' of the Relief Committee held on Friday last hart provided the sum of .was" placed to the. credit of the fund, to cover the alleged deficit and incident- al expenses arid give him an oppor- tunity to make any explanation h might wisrh to offer. This was don and Lockhart was released fror custody. Mr. Lockhart came bad THE ELECTOES OF THE ELECTORAL DIVISION OF LETHBEJDGE CITY. As a candidate seeking your votes at this election, it is proper that you should be well advised of my opinion on public matters, in so far'as this space will permit me to advance them. At the outset let me say that I do not propose to inflict ycu with a self- written introduction --_- Many of you have known me in this city the past eight years, and are as fully acquainted with my acts c's a citizen, during that time, as I am myself; and of my acts and my solicitude for the advancement of this city and the province, I leave you to judge. I cannot believe that it is'the honest opinion of any-voter, that if elected as your' representative; "my actions would be other than unceasing m ad- vancing the interests'of this city division as largely and rapidly in every way as my ability would'enable it- to be done. My home is-here, what resources I have art here, and what ability I may have is at your disposal. Do not believe that my election means an obstinate or stupid opposi- tion in Assembly to all Government measures either pastor to come, because they happen to 'be fathered by a Liberal Government. It is not true. I believe I am as broad minded as the average man, and aK_ legislation wall have my support, or according as I believe it to be good or bad business for the people whom I represent; and this whether it- is a "Liberal- or Conservative. Government that administers the affairs of ihc Province. For example, th'i word 'Railways, at the present time spalLs a great need of the Province at large, and particularly oi the city of Letttbridge. Let me say therefore that the present, or. any Government, .will, get every as- sistance from me to push to a rapid completion every foot cf Railway pro- jected today, by the Xiberal Government. ;We must have them, and more of them; do -believe .that in granting such valuablS franchisee, the legislation should. be carefully considered before finally passed. As to the present project of Kailways and the Charters granted, I be. e that the Government should have demanded -of these companies, in the. .-.interests of the people, a.larger control of the proposed railways and their operation; the Board of Railway- Commis- sioners for Gannda; have no jurisdiction over Provincial Railways. These: railways will be built upon the credit of the people of Alberta, assuming the liability of their construction, and if T had been in the Assembly, I should have demanded protection for the Municipalities throughout Alberta, so railway company could possibly hold up-the rate-payers of any municipality, by a demand for .grants of money or exemp- tions from taxation, as the price, for entering such municipality. You know, and I know, that thia is-the railway companies; large sums of money and iarge exemptions, as the price of iheir entering a municipality, aod has taken plate in this and every other Canadian Province. I would have used'every effort to eliminate from every railway chatter, that allowed .to the railway company any-_ choice as to-whether or should build into such cities as Lethbridge, because I Delieve that there should be no option, and that they should be compelled, under the present legislation, to build into'municipalities of end character .-Without being allowed to bargain with tis "for a price to do so. Further, gentlemen, the railway legislation is now an Act. of this yince, and the election of myself, or of a majority of Conservatives in this r it was decided to release Mr. Lock-_ provjace on March the 22nd., will not stop the building of railways to ii A_J. ui ,1 J- U AIIVM Cl CfUl i-rrrt n I A voluntarily, arriving this morning, a, tial trnthens the which materially strengthens th general belief that his innocence wil be established.

Mtfftoetod Bronchitis fe one of most general oauaea of CODJtUQptlon. it at by OM Dr. Norway Pine Syrup. Mrs. D. D. Miller, Allandale, writes hubaKd got a bottle of Dr. Wood'a Norway Syrup for my girl who had Brooehitia. She wheezed ao badly you oooM hear her from cue room to the bat it wn not long until oould tbe efleut yomr had on her. That winter when we liTtdia Toronto., She had a bad oold this winter, bat stead of getting anotber bottle of Dr. Wood's Norway Fine Byrap, I tried a hone made receipt whkfc I got from a neighbor bat foajKl that her ooW laeted about twice as long. My hwbmnd highly praicn 'Dr. Woody' and wiHawtlwta bottte of it alwayi Iwfi Ttii im a yellow wrapper, tbiw pirn trm tbe tndt Mark, prke S6 ota. Be awt MM of tlw MMJ atit this or point, and will not for one moment impede or delay the advancement, which we hope to .derive from the legislation now in force. You know, as I do, that the'railway companies will build other and will enter this city irrespective of the way in which you cast youi vote, ,and whether one candidate .or the other, now before you, is and the assertion that a vote for any but thu Government candidate would impede the city's advancement, delay railway construction or prevent expenditure pi. public .-money is as unwarranted and indefensible-ti it is insulting to the integrity of the members of the Government and your own intelligence. If the expenditure of money in the different constituencies depends- upon the election of a Government candidate, why does it come about that during the past three and a half years, large expenditures have been made in the District Messrs. Robertson and Hiebert, the two Opposition members in the Legislature, while the City of Lethbrdge has yet to receive its' first Government favor, although we hare never elected an Opposition candidate from this.riding. If we are to be lashed by the whip of Government patronage for the exercise of our franchise, which we consider free, where the necessity for increasing the membership of the Legislative Assembly from 25 to 41 members? If it is bad business to a Conservative, then the converse must be true, and it is good business to elect only Liberal members, in which case surely 25 Liberals can as well administer the'affairs of our Province as 41. And as to the representation, gentlemen, why doea the Government, in the face of population and production, give to the South a representation of but 18 members, while the North gets 23? Do you call that Legislation in your interests, and do you approve it? In conclusion, gentlemen, I beg to remind my old time Liberal friends in this city, of their promise made to me at the time of the De Veber-Ivw election, that if I ever stood again they would vote for me. That the >letJge many of you freely gave. I "now ask you to redeem it, and I also appeal to all voters to make this a clean election, devoid of all unfortunate and irrevelant words and acts. 1 have every respect and ft Jwmrm eeling for each oi the other candidates in the'field, and I for them from my supporters, the same fair and gentlemanly treatment thlt-1 expect to eceive at their hands; For political conduct, if elected, I have before me xample of G. A. Magrath, your Federal member, which I will strive to ollow, and whether returned at the polls or not, I shall be ready and arnest as ever to further the interests of the City of and the ai large.
