Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 8, 1905, Lethbridge, Alberta 111 ltH advance- fertising Inerehnn-tnoney a platform is jugh, long enough and strong enough for nny honest newspaper. The Herald has no prom-ises to mako, but pvel'ere to bo judged upon its merits alone. The firs'' issues will not bo up to the standard that the proprietors of the Herald propose to maintain. They are handicapped by delays in securing machinery already ordered, yet they hope to give evidence from tho start of their intent to publish a paper that will be :i credit to Lethbridge. The proprietors have come to jetljbridge with tho firm convict ion thfw the town has a great future, a future that will be brightened by the unlimited jiossibilios of Southern alberta. The development of this vtst domain, at present hardly touches moans the addition of ma.iy tiousands in population and increafd. prosperity for those who (vine here and stri>c to take advantage of the opportunities presented. The growth of Lethbridge will depend, first upon the development of the country tributary to tho town, and second upon the promptness with which the people will take advantage of the opjwr-tunity to make Lethbridge a great commercial centre. The Herald will do all it can to promote the interests of the town and the country, and upon this assurance alone asks for the patronage of the people. dwards' Dye Opener is a ritnble political buzz saw these days, and men of l>oth parties are feeling its sting. The express messenger who stole $100,000 got six years. If lie had stolen a five dollar suit, lie would have gotten life. Alberta's strenuously contested baby election will all be over with tomorrow; but the big heads-well, that's another kind of a fight. After tho smoke of the political j battle has cleared away, tho people will be ready to take off their hats I and cheer on the new province. The Herald appreciates to the fullest extent the many kind words that have been said of the pros pective paper and its proprietors. tends greetings In friends in the Province ! Iborta. They arc a rustlinu. t istling lot, in love with their j buntry and their res|>ective towns.: andare doing more to make Alberta fatuous than the Dominion parlia-1 ineiit witli its expenditures of hundreds of thousands. The future generations of this province will owe an heavy debt of gratitude to the newspai>er publishers of this generation in Alberta, "there will bo no prodigal pirliam *v.t to grant pensions to these 'empire builders, no mourning or sympathetic people to place* tributes of love and admiration upon the graves of the departed ones, but, thank (iod. here and there will be found a man with red blood coursing through his veins, who will say, 'So that poor devil of a newspaper man is death Well, lie was a good fellow for the country if ho didn't leave his family a cent." A Few Remarks. Lethbridge climate is of Mie invigorating plan. An Egyptian mummy would take on new life after six months residence in this town.

Then the silence was broken. 'I am ready to do busiic v.s." said the Herald man. "Come right into the other room." With the light of victory in his eye, the man with the one hundred votes in his pockets and visions of wealth before him, made haste to follow his grand opportunity. "This i-> Mr. Iieiinett, who is ready to do business with yon." said thi' Herald man. and at once the visitor supposed he was meeting the nirrs'. eloquent talker in Western Canada. "Yes. Sir." said Mr. Pennett. "I am ready for business. The Herald will appear next week. What do you want.advertising, job work or subscription?" The look on the man's face would have caused a sphinx to smile.

The Herald believes in patronizing home industries, and for that reason home merchants and home industries of every charm-tor will receive the patronage of the Herald, and should receive the patronage of every one of the residents of Lethbridge. There are excellent reasons for this. The home business man pays taxes in Lethbridge. lie contributes to the welfare of tho community by his contributions to every movement that is for the benefit of the town. He is always reudy with his time and. his money to advance the best interests of his people, and it is this spirit, this liberality, this loyalty to home interests that make western towns grow. Every man who owns a foot of property in Lethbridge and every man who holds a position in the town, should besj in mind that it is tho patronage of homo industries that gives added value to property ami insures permanency to their positions. Give the homo merchant a chance After you compare the quality of goods and tho price, lake into consideration tho cost of express and the fact that when you buy at home you cau see what you are getting. You will readily conclude that it will pay to buy at home.
