Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 28, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta t ALiEKTA., FRIDAY, MAY M. 1Et Daily Herald Piloted by ths Daily Herald Printing Cc. Ltd.. every lawful evening at office, Round St.. Lethbridfe. Alberta. Canada W. A. BUCHANAN, Manafinf Di- and Editor Subscription Daily, one year, delivered ......J4-00 Gaily, air month a, delivered 2.00 Duly, three months, delivered 1.00 Daily, one month, delivered.....36 Daily, one year, by mail .......3.00 Daily, six months, by mail .....1.75 Daily., three by mail.....85 Weekly Herald, one year .......1.50 Addresses changed as often de- but both new and old address must be given. zations of different sorts, in the city and when an; rone talks of organizing a new society, a strange knowing smile conies over the face of the knowing ones and they re- miink that Lethbridge already has enough dead societies. There ought, however, to be some-" person or per- sons to take up the work usually done by Humane Societies. There is too much cruelty to animals allowed in the city. Attention has been called to the way some teamsters abused their horses and action has boon tak- en. There ought to be some power ti> deal with the owner of an okl skate of a hoi-se that has been wandering around the city on three logs half a dozen running sores uid weak and thin it can hardly walk. Such a man should be dealt witb by the law. Other cases perhaps not so bid are regular occurrences. CARRIAGE WINDOW CRITICISM "Carriage window is a very apt phrase originated by one of the delegates from Australia descriptive of the hasty judgments and criticisms given by tourists of a 'country. Every place has suffered more or less from "carriage window criticism." The person crossing Can- j ada from ocean to ocean on the train If he judges the whole country from j what he can see from the car window forms a very erroneous opinion of the j country. It is a well known fact that j railways have a way of building their j lines in places that are generally the j poorest from the sightseeing stand- point. The gravel and sandy ridges that are good for making roadbeds are not the best land for agricultural and other productive purposes. Dis- tances aie considered -rather than scenery and hence many undesirable parts are traversed by railroads. There is another reason why "car- riage window criticism" is unfair. The sightseer has been accustomed to dif- ferent conditions from those he sees! around him. He is not therefore in a position to judge or form opinions j without- s. more careful study, A! man from the East or South or Eu- rope or Australia does not understand the conditions in a western commun- ity whether it be a province, district, city or town. So -even if he stays for several days and drives around and talks with other people, it is a re- markably discerning man who can form a correct opinion of the real con- ditions that exist. New countries and communities suf- fer more than the older places from this sort- of criticism for most of the older places are more or less alike in their conditions but new places are harder to understand and that is where the carriage window view falls short. WONDERFUL HEN FINDS A FORTUNE COUNCIL AND PRESS The Calgary newspapers are -once more after the city council for adopt- ing Star Chamber methods in the city business. In the meetings to discusa the city hall situation the aldj.-mttn have decided that the press sbom.l be exeiuded. The papers at once scent nigger in the and pro- wed to give'the citizens the same idea. This does the council mere harm than the possible publication rf something that they did not v ish published. The question, of publicity is a rex- ed one with public bodies as there aiv many. matters coming up for dis- cussion, the premature pubHcd'ioti of which would cause a great deal., of trouble. Many'newspapers do i. ,t seem to recognize this fact -md sotk on the principle that everything is news. The council as' a public dy should recognize the press as tne j.ub- lic. organ. The press in turn h.-is a right to recognize' the fact that as the public organ it should consider the interests of the citizens by holding matters the publication of which, would prejudice the public in- terest as well as the fact that- it its duty "to. give the people the news. The best protection the councils have is the presence of the press as the people's representative. This is true, however, only when the press is willing to consider the people's in- terests. Many a paper true to its position as a public organ has had to deny itself the -satisfaction of pub- lishing a real hot live story because the publication of it might prejudice the interests of the municipality. If a paper is true to its there is no reason, why" it should be "excluded from council meetings and it-is worse than foolishness for a council to- take this action. The council and press of Calgary might well follow the example of Lethbridge council and press in j this .matter. Both bodies work for the public interest and though their! opinions on matters of public policy: may differ they seldom have any i complaint against each other matter of giving or withholding pub- licity of the affairs transacted around the council board. OUR POINT OF VIEW The fighting editors have been go- ing it hard. One took a journalistic, crack at a judge and got fined a hun- dred dollars. Another took a fistic poke at a cabinet minister and was sent; down for fifteen days without the option of fine. may be sat- isfaction in hitting the other fellow bat the return blow takes a lot of the fan away. The paper formerly known as the Maeleod Advance has come out in a new and enlarged form under a new name, The Advertiser, The- now. edi- tor and publisher, John E. Pember, promise of making the paper live up to iti name. His iniiial num- ber is agood start. Lethbridge has a great many an Egg with Map af Place Where Gold Was Bur-ed New York, May 'Vii'iw: ig tale comes from Tyson, Vermont: Ezra Bun, who lives uh ut a mile east of the Corners, has a hen which no amount o! money will buy. It is a scrawny, ill-appearing fowl, with draggled feathers and a senir-bald: Bead, and, what is it has laid only one egg.'in its entire two years' existence. Still, old Betsy, as the hen is coiled has a niche in Ezra's heart, and gets the very best grain the farm affords. The secret of all this is. that the one egg Betsy laid contained on its shell a raised water line map of the spot where old Jeremiah Burt, Ezra's great grand-father, buried his gold at the time of the Revolutionary war. and with the aid of this map Ezra recovered the treasure. Just- how much this was no one has been able to find out, but it is known that the mortgage _ on the farm has been paid off, 'and the Burt family' is living in comfort. The Burts gave up hunting for the secret., wealth forty years ago after they had searched and dug until they were tired out. They knew that the paternal Burt sunk his gold some- where in the earth, and went off to war without telling his family1 where he had placed it further, than thai? it was on the farm. Last summer a gypsy came along, selling beads and laces, and, offered to go into a trance and solve the treas- ure riddle, providing Ezra bought a dollar's worth of her wares. Burt took the offer, and in her trance the wo- man said that' some day on old scrawny hen would lay an egg on which would be found a map. If this were followed- the treasure would bs found. Nothing more happened until a month ago, when Betsy was found in the- wood box behind the kitchen stove. Horrified at the idea of having a hen in her kitchen. Mrs.Burt shooed her out, and was surprised to find an egg nestling- in the shavings. The egg had peculiar raised lines on.the shell, and Ezra was called. He re- membered, the prophecy of the gypsy and carefully studied the shell- Sure enough there was a map, with a lit- tle star at the base of an old maple txee in a sugar orchard. With a pick and shovel Burt set forth and an hour later returned with a discolored copper soap kettle, heavy with gold. The family kept the se- cret until the mortgage was paid., when it became cowmen property. All efforts to get Ezra to tell how much, money he found in the kettle have failed.
