All currcspoDdence must bo accompanied by tlie writer's name otharwlio publication will t)o*rcru8oliihin, Nov. 4.-Surgery as n cure for mornl degenerncy hns had a roniarkttble domonstrntiou in this city througli ah .operation performed by Dr. porbert 1-. Nortlirup, dean of Hahneinnim College. By a single operation on tln! licad, ri;nioving prop.s�)ro on tiic brain, cmsed ))y an injury, Dr. Northrui) cliiinged u man from a drunkard and a Uiief to an Iionest industrious man respected by his employers. Tlic patient declares that his desire to drink and steal has disappear; 1. For twenty-two njonlhs he lins liv I an upright life, and during that time has been promoted twice by tlie co a-pnny i'mploying him. Previous Ic the operation lie drank a quart o' whiskey a day, stole money from h's employers and was unable to keep n job because of his habits. The case has.just been made pul>-r.c by Dr. Northrup. The operation was performed twenty-two months ago. It was not ^announced earlier because Dr. Northrup wanteeration: " 'I looked upon money and the spending of it as a thing which I was not responsible for. I spent it rigiit and left. I might say threw it away, afTd because I did not have enough of my own I helped myself to that which belonged to tiic company.' "His accident had no effect on his memory. His mind was every bit as clear afterward, and he could perfrom just as much mental labor and do it just as easily as ho could before the accident. The patient himself summed up tlie effectM of his head injury when he said he had all of his faculties except his sense of normal respoi'sibility. "On January 18, 1007, 1 mapped out the lissure of Kolando upon tlie right side and exposed tin' lower and middle thirds of the ascending frontal and adjacent frontal convolutions by means of a trephine and Rongr-ir forceps. "I did not find any depressed bone or peculiarity of the osseous wall at this point. The dura, however, was ndlierent to tht; inner plate of the ukull, and all three meningos were glued togteher. The cerebral cortex appeared normal. "I broke up the adhesions between the dura, on th(> one hand, and the arachnoid and pia on the- other, stitched the (lap of the dura lightly in place and closed the wound in tlie Hcalp. I "The patient recovered from the operation and wos discharged from the hospital two weeks later. "The result of this operation, up to the present time, has been satisfactory in every respect. The patient is now devoted to his wife and childron, has drunk no whiskey, and says the thought of taking a drink never enters his mind. "Two months after his operation hi; returned to the employ of the fiame company for which he worked before his downfall; ho-s been promoted twtce, with,an inoroaso of pay. - ^'The history of this case impresses me with this factr-the undoubted direct effect of the head injury on this man's moral choraeter." the labor convention LcthbrldKo, Altn., Nov. 5, 1908 To the Kditor of the Herald; Dear Kir,-Allow mc through tho medium of your valuable paper to cii-doaVot* to find out it thcro arc any unions In tho I^othbridgo riding who have not yet received from mo a let-tor of Invitation to our convention- which takes place on Monday next, Nov. i�th, at 9 a. m.-and which is for tho purpose of adopting a platform and KOlectlng a candidate lo contest tho seat at the coming Provincial nye-clcclion who will be acceptable to oil Hcctions of the labor movement. If Ihoro are any unions who have been overlooked, ^ we, tho Tradcj Council, hope they will not think .such omlsaion intentional, but Is caused by the fact that tho names of their ofllciuls arc not on our registered lint. If such unions will only notify me I shall be pleased to .send them a formal Invitation ond also crodcntial.s, while 1 urn sure their dol-ogales will bo warmly welcomed at our Convention as it is our earnest dcHlre to make it as represontat l"'u as possible. Your.s fraternally, S. \V. Tuckwell, llox 441, Ixthbridgc. Secreta-y after-election charge, lOdltor of the li/iraUl: I,ethbrid(?e, Alberta. Dear Sir,-1 have struck soinelh'nH pretty rich. It ought to iii.iki' J and your renders sit up an i lil'e notice. 1.1 ought to mukcyou exclaim, �A,Daniel come to judgment." I know you are all aglow to know what it is. Well hero it is; "In only one polling booth in both cities (IMedicino- Hat and I^Xithbridgo) did Simmons got a majority and that was in the mining district of Lethbridgo where I'o^cs, Austrians and Italians ijredomlnatc. In our own district the German settlements mostly favored Simmons, tho influenced used being known to everyone. In the south tho Jlormons supported Simmons imder similar circumstan ces." Now you wunl to know whcire 1 captured that screed, don't you? Well 1 mUHt confess. I got it from the editorial columns of the Medicine Hat Times, under date of Novcinlx'r .^rd. It's a dainty mor.scl, isn't it'/ Vou wouldn't think that the individual reHponHil)le for it would he allowed to go abroad without a guanl, would you'.' lJut he is. What can be hi.i intention in writing such a thing, I know not. Wliether ft is woeful ignorance, wilful falsehood or damnable prejudice, I am not prepared to say, I see no reason for it. It rather appeals lo me lis the nonsensical action of .some petty soul who liray.s like a jack ass and thinks lie is wafting mellifluous sounds with divine harmony. I'eople unfamiliar with the Jformons might lie led to believe that they are some kind of horned nationality instead of a religious body. Xo one would think of .saying f'Toles, lluhgarians. Italians and I'lv'sbyterlons." Not for a minute. Yet this blatant fellow doesn't know any better. I am inclined to believe that the I'oles, Austrians and Italians will not soon forget this slan-dei'ous reference. They are perfectly able to take caro of them.solves. Xo Consei-vative paper was bravo enough 1(1 condemn them four years ago when "Honest .Tohn" llerron captured a majority in the .sana- district. -Xo, oil no! It was their good judgment antl honesty that led them to vole for o Con.servative four years ago. Ipiil now, seeing Mr. Simmons secured the big majority o' .'10 votes, it is tlie'ir ignorance tliat prevails. Very ^ound logic and reinarkalile for Its cogency! What I wish to discuss is the Mormon of the (|uestion. The I'oles. Iho Austrians and the llal ians are nationalities, 11 is ti'uo, but Ihe Mormons are a religious body of worship)iers-90 per cent, of which are Ilrltish stock, whether by birth or descent-that is-the :\ror-lo'.is of Southern Alberta. You didn't know that before, did you Mr. Mad Iluttlng Times? Xow as concerns the Mormon vote. 'I'liere are non-Mormons in the town of Aragratli than nn.v of the so called .Moriiion towns-Curdston has probably the largest percentage of non-Arorinons. Of the tluvo larg* towns, Ilaymond. Alagrath and Stirling, C. A. Alagrath liad a total majority of 5. At Cardston Mr. Slm-tuoiis tallied a majorit.v of 11 while at ArountaiM View, the next largest setUement in tho Atormon district, Mr. Alagrath's majority was ;!.'">, so that at these live largest towns Mr. Magrath's total majority was i29 in excess of Simmons'. Air. Alagruth made another gain of 10 at Taylor-ville and yet the Alad Hat Times says, "In tho south the Alormons sup |)orted Simmons under similar circum stances." Is tho Afodicine Hat Times aware of tho fact that the man it so highly complimented for his splendid address at the Hat in opposition to Mr. Simmons, wna uiie of the loading Alormons of tho Alberta colony? This WIS Mr. James 1'. Low of Cardston. llo appeared at Tabor, Cllelchen, Iron Springs and Stirling in behalf of Mr. Ufagrath. These people voted as Ca- nadian citiw'ns, llr'UiHh ^ubjecl,*; and not as Alormons. 'They exefcised their according to their best Judgment and according to their party nlllllation as Conservatives and Ijiberals. Of course It may not have boon In keeping with tlu^ mirrow-mindedness of the editoi' of the Times It would indeed be hard for a broail-mindefl people to accommodate Ihem-Hclves t hour and a lialf the gentleman wailed at the Taber Hotel for the local westbound lo pull up to the station. Finally it stirted and instead of slopping at the station as was expected to take on passengers left them behind, Mr. Hanranhan being one of tlie number, .Vs the passenger' coach passed him In; sayis tlie eo!ag
