Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 24, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Daily Herald, Thursday, March 24.1010. Whether You Come To Us Or Not, We Say ____________ IN LETHBRJ KND DO IT NOiAl There was a time a few years ago when the future of this city was uncertain. It hadn't really commenced to grow. That stage has passed. The largest and most conservative banks in Canada have established branches here in their own buildings, The interests of capital are too large to let the town remain where it is, even if it could. Three new railroads will be here in a comparatively short time. Settlers are crowding every train both from the east and west to make their homes on the .wonderful wheat lands sur- rounding the city. It is the finest land a farmer ever put a plough into, and now selling at one-fourth of what it will bring in five years. And remember it's the surrounding country that makes a city. With the wheat lands developed and the cheap coal here, Lethbridge is also bound to become a large milling centre. Now a word as to SUNNYSIDE ADDITION I It lies south east of the city, the only direction the best residence district can grow.

THE CITY'S DUTY TO ITS YOUNG WOMEN Aim and Object Of the Young Women's Home Presented By the Secretary Of the W. C. T. U. A most novel and successful social was held in Wesley clmrch on Tues- day evening under the auspices of the committee who have been collecting for ithe Young Woman's'Home. The ladies and gentlemen paid the en- trance fee at the door by the donation of a towel. About a hundred towels were thus collected and pinned on the! line which was stretched around the room. The meeting opened with a short in- teresting program of music, recita- tions and songs, including the follow- ing paper read by Mrs. Rodgers, ex- plaining the aims of the Young Wo- men's Home. ".Everyone present will oc aware, through personal observation, or from reports, of the rapid increase of popu- lation in our city, an increase in five years of from to persons. lems before city; one of 'the chief of such problems being the providing of Through the generosity of the. citi- zens and others ithis need will be filled homes for the young men and partic- so far as the young men are concern- larly for the young women. It is not to be expected that those who have homes must share them with the strangers coming into the city, nor should it be expected that the homeless ones coming in are to have no place to go for information, help, nor a place to abide. As loyal citizens we should all do our share toward welcoming and enter- taining the strangers and the home- less. The hotels, hoarding houses and many private homes do their best to- ward furnishing acommodation, the -restaurants also do their part, but with the exception of a very few pri- vate homes nothing has been done to- ward supplying the need of a hpme for ed, as the amount required for the Y. M.C.A. has been subscribed. The local .branch of -the vv.o.i.U. feeling that the young women are in great need of the surrounding of a home, considered the subject and de- cided that the best way of supplying that need was to open a Young Wo- man's Home. It was decided to commence on a small scale with a rented house. An advertisement was put in the paper iand the largest house possible, in a ceutral location, was secured. The house referred to is on the north-west corner of Smith and Bompas streets The lease which the W.C.T.U. have or Such an brings its prob- young women. and the sleeping apartments.

For the women of the surrounding country the nome will afford a rest- ing-place when weary from sfaopping and with an hour or two to spare. Table-board also will foe supplied to those women and girls desiring it. The dining room is ibeing planned to accommodate many more -than the regular number of boarders. To help the girls who'are not board- ers, certain evenings of the .week, class es for instruction in sewing and cook- ig willl bo held as well as literary evenings.
