If LOSES -'A GOOD OFFICIAL The death in action of Major A. F. Mantle, deputy minister of agriculture "of the provinre of Saskatchewan, :serves to bring home very strongly to all the losses enUlIed by this war. '.Canada is sending of her beat. The, late Major Mantle was one of the Liismg young men of Western Canada. He was a leader in our most import-; -ant field of development, and though his loss most keenly affects our sister province, the west as a whole can ill 'afford to- lose men of his type. A high sense of ualy tor.H him from his important post to a more dangerous one :in which he considered he'was more MAGNIFICE.NT WORK OF THE'LOCAL RED CROSS Lethbridge has every reason to be proud of the ladies of the local branch of the Red Cross Society who toil so linceasingly in their work of mercy for the soldiers who are wounded on the seld of battle. The work of the society tor the past year has been phenomenal. The receipts for the year have been over and the amount of work entailed in collecting or ia" other ways earning this money has been, enormous. But outside this, I the work of the ladies individually and collectively is worthy of more than passing mention. Mrs. WashbrooJee has made 418 standardized Red: Cross articles in the first eight months of the year. Other ladies, including Mrs. Broome, Mrs. Hugh Tay- lor, Mrs. Higinbotham, Sirs. Hall and Mrs. Roy, have done just as well. How much work this entails the average person cannot conceive. Too much credit cannot be given to the ladies sb actively engaged in this great patri- otic work. The Sweet Grass Advocate, published sixty-six miles down the line, reprints .editorially an interview from one, E. S. Foster, in the Helena Record. If the Advocate were printed anywhere else but just across the international line, its ignorance might be over- looked, but as it is, one wonders at the reason for a supposedly well-in- formed man lending his efforts to spread .such reports as the following: "Keep away from is the warning brought back from northern Montana by E. D. Foster. "If the ex- periences related to me by scores of men who went to said Mr. Foster, "everybody should Keep out of the dominions. Canada is advertising extensively in Spokane for men to .help with the harvest. Wages of ?3.25 a day are promised. I met scores of men who said that after they arrived across the line the best they were offered was ?2-50 a day, and then they would have to sign a contract to re- main all season. If they refused to agree to remain-.for the: season, ?2 a day was the maximum wage. "But this matter of being promised high.wages and hot finding them is only incidental. Canada wants men for the army and can't Bnd them witli- n her own boundaries, so she is try- ing to get them in this country. 'And here is how she does it: Pro- hibition is supposed to be in eSect, but bootleggers are active and it is an easy.iDatter to get booze. The officers keep a strict lookout for men who have been drinking; they are arrested j and -arraigned in court. The judge finds them all guilty of violating the prohibition law and sentences them to a long term in jail. The sentence is suspended if the defendant will en- list, Many men prefer to take their chances In the army rather than serve a long, jail sentence, and I am told that hundreds" of men have thus been railroaded into the trenches. i'Keep awsy from Canada." If Mr. Foster, of Helena gets any satisfaction from spreading such wierd arns let him have it. But if he had finished his Interview with the advice, fighter s, keep away from Al- there might have been an ele- ment of truth in what he had to say. But for Mohtanans who want a fine prosperous place to live, his advice is all wrong. They don't make 'em any. better than Alberta this year. THE BOOT IS ON THE OTHER. FOOT The Calgary Albertan says: "The Lethbridge Herald Is fretting its heart out because it believes that Calgary newspapers look at everything from the' Calgary viewpoint. The Letii- bridge paper is old enough'and should he wise enough to know .better than that. This baby sectionalism was abandoned years ago, and there is no need of reviving it now."

These dyes had been imported from Germany in pre-war days, and the outbreak -of hostilities gave the members of that concern a chance to makje a heavy turnover with a correspondingly heavy margin. Pte. James Finlayson, D.C.M., was married at Hamilton to. Miss Miirio Bloc-he, a French lady who nursed him after he had been .wounded.

The police court in Milwaukee the other day looked like a reception, for Milwaukee's More than a dozen women of highest social rating were present to testify against Anna Moran, known in Chicago as Waugti, who is said to be one of the most dangerous pickpockets in the coun- try. After sis women had testified Anna decided to plead guilty. Warden Rivers of the provincial jail says that the only objection he has to. threshing first is that the other fellow knows the yield and lays out to beat it. At that it's worth while having a fifty bushel crop beaten by a sixty bushel one. Please noriry CENTRAL PROVINCIAL COMMITTEE Returned Soldiers' Bureau, LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA. J. R.
