Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 12, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDae, ALBERTA, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 12, IMS. PAGE THREE Speaks Of Lethbridge In Favorable Terms What Viiitor of the United States Has to Say (UcUe Pluin (Kanaoa) News.) Monday morning found ua apccd-Ing over Southern Alberta. At Calgary the train loft the main lino and Hwung to the aouth, stopping at Mo-Lcod, where lunch was served. From Macleod to Lethbridge the track takes a very circuitous route. The wagon road is only 28 miles between these stations, but the railroad is forced to go 48 miles. This is caused by the Belly River having such a wido gorge and very deep. The railroad crosses the hend of St. Mary's Uiver at its entronco into the IJelly River. So numy gorges are on each side of the river it is Called the "Bad Ijonds." At one place seven trestle bridges are visible, making rather n rare sight. So many trestles make it very unsatisfactory, so the C.P.R. Capital.

Lethbridge is m city of G,000. It is II conl city ns well as a great cat. lie centre, It is in a big wheat sec tion, and many of the farms ore as big as "all outdoors." Upon reaching the city we were met by a committee, and the usual rii-thbridge, adjoining a 'lew town begun on the right of way. Some little entertainment was furnished by Lethbridge principally a concert in the i)ark by the band. The writer met the loader and was invited to play with them which was agreeable to us. They have a fine band, currying a saxaphone and a double B bass, botii instruments very much needed by the band at home. Their suits were like ours with but one exception, braid in front, and were bought at the same place. It made one feel quite at home. Llhbridge is a peculiar city, the laws "being very strict as to closing at six o'clock, when all stores must close, except drug stores which close at 8 and bar rooms which must close at 10. Kven then the drug store we called on could not sell postal cards after six because they were not of its line of busii\esH. One store had a sign up ' on, we were fined five dollars for selling a magazine after G o'clock." Another fellow was out in front of his store and stopped our people by saying, "You are from a free country._aren't you?" In reply to this inevitnble reply he would continue, "why don't you come up to a country where no one is free?" Kvi-dently Lethbridge has some versatile town knockers.

The front of the oven in a Gurney-Oxford Canadian Range is as hot as the back-the heat is evenly distributed throughout This is done by the new Oxford Division flue. The old style flue drew the heat of the fire to the back of the oven making that the hottest part.
