Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 25, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta \ s FRIDAY. MAY 'i5, 1017 THIS LliTI I BRIDGE- DAILY HERALD PAGE NINE G HIT Wins First in Three Classes- School Children Were , Royally Entertained FMmonton, May 23- Tlip number of entries of tho city for tho-musical festival Is liu'BCly In advan children's choir, twenty volcon strong' under tho leadership of Miss Bthol Waterman,' of LelhbridBu. These 'young people tire all under 16 years of hro, and In many, cases it is the first visit to" the capital of tho province, so the festival Is one ol" pure ,|oy to them. Tliey-will lie" in the city till Friday morning .and will !>m Our Own CoiTt'fmonclcnt) Foremost, May 2S.--The amount of trade coming in from the west of town is indicative of a. di-volplng community in that direction. We are given to understand that several la rue land deals have been.put. through and that more extensive settlement is probable. Such as have already commenced operations display an exi-eedinsly pro Hii'Ksive spirit ami have undertaken farming on a law rcale depending almost exclusively on tractor power. So great, in fact, has been Ihe trade west, of here that one local train Is frequently kept hack from arriving in town here on schedule lime. Wo rejoice because cultivation oT the lauds west of here has opened up for the soil is good anil, hitherto, the uncultivated stretches was anything hut a good advertisement. We feel that, we are strategically si'icled In the heart of a developing countryside. And we ran certainly say that oujr town is keeping up w-ith the community development. We make nil boast of mushroom growth for we realize that that which springs up in a night reaches full development quickly. WeMiave i'etyi on the map for nearly four years now and can show a creditable growth for that lime. No inducements have been held out. ailt) no false claims made but business men have steadily been on the iincrease in our midst and steady growth has brought about: stability in eveijy departnient of town life. It is some time since we had a big celebration bero but the proposed celebration of Dominion Day promises to unite ail towns people in a uniform effort to prove our efficiency. We noted with pleasure the movement in the Lethbridgc Hoard of Trade to secure a more efficient service along this line and we can promise the whole-hearted interest and cooperation of our local Hoard of Trade, for we feel that Increased train service should be given, for (to mention only one advantage out of many) three trains a week would relieve the congestion often experienced in our mail service and would give our merchants a better chance to attend to business correspondence more satisfactorily. ' It is "some mail" that comes into our post office now. too. for wo have, become the distributing point for lipst offices situated in the country to the south of town. The mail carrier has given over the use of his car and lias resorted to the reliable Korse and democrat method of distribution until tlio. rush subsides a little. , , There has even been a fair amount of hauling into town of lato because of damp weather, leisure from seeding activity, and the certainty of securing elevator room and a good- price. The roads have been uniformly good ever since the early spring improvements were made and the only inconvenience has been caused by the prevalence of mosquitoes. They have been very numerous lately and the most popular line of purchase has been mosquito nettings for facial protection and chemical ointments for the healing of bites. Prof. Ottavrcll from the Provincial" I'niversity spent, a few hours in' town last week enroute to tho south-country to meet certain engagements in country school houses. We are sorry that we were deprived of the. privilege of hearing him speak and of seeing the pictures--which he had on exhibition for we are told his remarks and pictures were very enlightening regarding the war situation. The people of the Durlifigton school district heard tho Professor on Wednesday evening and the Altorado folk gathered on Thursday evening to welcome him. After both meetings refreshments and dancing were enjoyed nnd a contribution was raised in the interest of the-military V. II. C. A. Mother's Day services were held in Altorado school house on Sunday, May (>, in the afternoon by Bev. A. C. I3aker. A splendid crofcd turned out to hear this welcome" speaker and to show respect for mothers In general. A liberal collection :wasr taken in the interest of I the' military Y.M. c.A. .

[ News Was Kept Secret 1 The news of the incorporation was \ kept, secret, until it became certain that through some sources it had leak- ; ed to England nnd thence to Ciertnany. All reason for concealment, therefore; vanished. This invention, in the eyes . of the American. French and Rrftish ! strategists, is Germany's deathblow.
