Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 4, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, MAY bib family the body went on this evening's train to Geneva, N.Y., which was his birthplace and boyhood home. Mr. Becker and family had lived in Buffalo for several years before com- ing here. He was just in .the prime of life, death having occurred in his year. SAYS C. N. R. WILL NOT SELL SHIPS ny ib pre- said D. Bl Hannfli third vice-president of the Canadian Nor- thern when asked for information in connection with.the Ixindon dispatch that the Cunard company will take over the Canadian Northern railway steamers. "There are certain negotiations tii.- der way, but-not for the sale of the ships by any means, Mr, Hannu went on. "There Is something developing but it has not yet come to a head." At the Majestic "Bringing up G. Hill's latest singing and dancing carnival oE fun, which comes to the Majestic next Monday and Tuesday, was founded on George famous cartoon aeries of the same name. The daily newspapers hand a laugh to tlveir many readers through the five or six i little cartoons depicting tiis troubles i of "ma" and daughter and their dte- comforture of the teaching ot "father" to be human. Their attempts to take 'him Into good society lead to many j side splitting incidents and much hilariously Many situations as has never been offered before In any play of any character. U is therefore natural to suppose that real flesh and blood characters upon the stage prove doubly funny especially so with a big company of talented performers of MrManus' "brain people." The fact of "Bringing Up Father" being a Gus Hill production lends it an importance and surety of success which no other name would suggest. Mr. Hill's many years of experience in the production nf cartoon plays extending back 30 j years, gives us the assurance that if 'Mr. Hill thought enough of the Mc- MamiH pictures to turn them into a, j play, their success was a matter of no j doubt whatever. The production of Up Father" is a magnificent cno in every particular, and surround- ed by a "girlie" chorus. The cast is made up entirely of specialty people, each of whom cannot only play their part but interpolate a specialty of their own. Reserved seats are now selling at Hedleys.

In the charge after the artillery preparation he Is equal to the best that France has pro- duced. Attempts have been made to find some hidden significance in this trans- fer of troops from one country to an- other. There seems to be nothing rnvateriOuH in it. These troops, what- ever their port of embarkation might have been, were undoubtedly dis- patched at a time when the French were being forced back from their po- sitions in Verdun.

McCORMICK PLANT IS FORCED TO CLOSE Chicago, May McCormick plant of the International Harvester A Big Part of the World Knows Grape-Nuts not alone for its delicious, nut-like flavour, but more for its wonderful nerve and brain making, bone and muscle building qualities. Grape-Nuts supplies certain essential elements, abun- dantly stored in the field grains, but which are lacking, in many foods. Especially is this true of foods .made from white flour, because in making flour white the larger purl of the energizing mineral elements are thrown oul in the milling process.

Ltd., Windsor, Out _ Appeal Made to Parlia- ment to Extend Scope of Investigation CONTINUED FHOM FRONT PAGE) only discussion today as it was a matter which conid not he decided at once. Hon. Robert Rogers, who was leading the house, said that it would be necessary to have all the facts Ibeforo tho house hotore a debate could take place. It was necessary that members should know all that had taken place before the commis- sioners. Then the matter could be discussed more intelligently. He sug- gested that Mr. Carvell allow his mo- tion to stand over until Friday, when printed evidence being taken by the commission would be available. Mr. Carvell said'he could not re- fuse to accede to the request asked for in such a pleasant manner. It was aslied, however, that a decision should soon be arrived at. as the same difficulty would arise in connec- tion with the majority of witnesses to bo examined. Mr. Melglien asked if the commissioners had suggested that parliament be requested to en- large its scope. Mr. Carvell said that the commissioners had said that if Mr. Johnslon wanted 10 pul cer- tain questions he would have to go to parliament and ask for extended powers for the commission. Mr, Mei- Khon "that is different." Mr. Carroll, "1 have no desire to deceive the house In regard to this matter and I ilo not want any nasty Insinuations from the solicitor general." it was then agreed between Mr. Rogers and Mr. Carvoll that the mat- ler would he discussed when the bouse meets tomorrow. latest move a political significance for Ger- many that will surely cause some mis- givings in the hearts of German lead- ers. Germany's aim in her great movement from the Dunajec was .to crush Russia so completely as to make a separate peace necessary- As the Russians swung back the German pa- pers in Berlin and in America declar- ed that the end of the war was in Eight, as Russia as an offensive force was no longer a consideration. Any further movement this spring or sum- mer which has for its object a drive deeper into Russian territory has also for its object the forcing of a separate peace. But this is more im- possible now than it was then. At no time since the war began have the Allies been In closer accord. Ger- many could ask no better proof of this "than to see the Russian soldiers fighting side by side with the trench on the western front. Another point: Gennauy is feeling now the first fruits of the unity of action of the Allies, as worked out by their combined council ot war. The Allies are now truly lumping their resources and each ;s giving what he haa to give, and, consequently what he can best alYord to give. Russia has the men; a horde of men, un- trained perhaps, but good fighting men. Her resources In men have not been touched, even though so many thousamls of them are prisoners in German camps. France and England have the money, the arms, tho equip- ment, and the factories of the neu- tral world behind them through con- trol of the sea. If these are com- bined so Hint the Russian resources in men nre transferred to a theatre where the money and arms of Kng- land and France are available. Gere- man defeat is Inevitable. For this reason the world will watch this new experiment this new manifestation of of command and council, with an interest us great as It IMS watched no other1 development ot the war. thinly for advertising purposes a ftRpering mailing tube has been in- vented that can be used by a reclp lent an egg tester. twelve thousand employees of the company are on strike.
