Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 10, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY. OCTOBER 10, 101R THE LETHBKIOG^ DAILY HERALD PAGE SEVEN- F Annual Meeting Held-E. N. Barker Honored - Major Brown Back. fFrom Our Own Correspondent) Cardston, Oct. 8.-The people of Cardston wore treated to one of the most enjoyable and talented musical performances from local people, that they have ever listened to. Saturday night in the school auditorium. According to the program, and as a sort of winding up to the K. C. Hut Fund, the good people of Raley. and Wool-lord district, gave us a rare musical treat. Mr. b. H. Jollifr, the genial "father of Raley" acted as chairman and paid a most eloquent tribute to the Red Cross workers, not. 'forgetting to mention the sainted Florence Night, ingale, and Clara Barton, the originators of this school of mercy which has been such a -wonderful factor in this war. Some $50.00 was realized from the concert and a round sum was also taken in at the dance which immediately followed about 11 o'clock. The program was as follows: Piano solo, MrB, Shwert; vocal solo, "Glorious Devon", Mr. Birkelt; Quartett, "Oh Hail Us You Free," F. Layne Co.; piano.solo, "Second Nocture", Lettchglskey, H, S, Flock; vocal solo, "Thora", H. S. Wixoiri; patriotic quartett, F. Layne Co.; vocal solo "Love's Old Sweet Song", Marshal Hazard; piano solo, Mrs. Shworf.; vo cal solo, "The Admiral's Broom," Mr Birkett; .quartett, "Farewell to Thee' Haley Quartett; solo, "A May Morning," II. 8. WUom; piano solo, "Voices of Spring," H. S. Flock. K. C. Hut Fund Mr. H. J. Flock, the only member of the Knights of Columbus organization of this district, reports a very favorable response and a hearty one through the whole district, over which he had charge. Some $1200.00 were raised and the canvassers report prac tically no turn down, and contributions ranging from Jl.flO to $40.00 from each individual, who was canvassed. The district was from Spring Coulee, west, but there was very little country work done. Mr. Flock is very pleased to report the progress of this district in its loyal response to this worthy cause, as he finally remarked to your correspondent, "the people down here are Strong, Forceful Men With Plenty of Iron In Their Blood- The�e Are the Ones With the Power and Energy To Win "Many a capable man or woman falls just short of winning because they don't iack'up their mentality with the physical strength and energy which come fromhav- ing plenty of Iron in the blood," says Dr. James Francis Sullivan, formerly physician of Bcllevue Hospital (Outdoor Dept.), New York, and tlie Westchester County Hospital. "Lack of Iron in the blood not only makes a man a physical and mental weakling, nervous, irritable, easily fatigued, but it utterly robs him of that virile force, that stamina and strength of will which are so necessary to success and power in every walk of life. It may also transform a beautiful, sweet-tempered woman into one who is cross, nervous and irritable. To help make strong, keen red-blooded Americans there is nothing in my experience which I have found so valuable as organic iron-Nuxated Iron. It often increases the strength and endurance of weak, nervous, run-down people in two weeks' time." Nuxated Iron is now being used by over three million people annually, including such men as Hon. Leslie M. Shaw, former Secretary of the Treasury, and ex-Governor of Iowa; former United States Senator and Vice-Presidential nominee Charles A. Towne, General John L. Clem (retired), ihe drummer boy of Shiloh who was sergeant in the U. S. Army when only twelve years of age; also United States Judge G. W. Atkinson of the Court of Claims of Washington, and others. MANUFACTURERS' NOTE: Nuxated fron, which is tecommended above, is not a secret remedy, but one which is well known to druggists everywhere. Unlike the older inor-game iron products, it is easily assimilated, does not injure the teeth, make them black nor upset the stomach. The manufacturers guarantee successful and entirely satisfactory results to every purchaser or they will . I una your money. . It is dispensed by all good druggists.

A. SMITH, Auctioneer very willing to support every worthy cause." Heartily Welcomed Few visitors have returned to Cardston and received a higher welcome, and a longer handshake than our old friend and fellow citizen, Mr. William Laurie, of Battleford, Sask., � former barrister ot this town. He and his good wife are here, the guests of Dr. and Mrs. 'H. B. Stacpoole, to spend a month's vacation. Mr. Laurie is the proud father of two gallant soldiers, Telford in. the Flying Corps, and Douglas, attached to the Divisional headquarters staff in France. Douglas has been wounded several times, and now snows six red scars, as the marks of,, this present conflict. In times past, some rather looked askance at the extreme party loyally by William Laurie, but this liar, shown itself in. the sons, and they too showed, loyalty to their country, as (heir father before them, and in the early stages of the war voluuteered their services, and have been bravely at. it since, and write home their determination to "stay with it until Fritz is absolutely beaten." Both Mr. and Mrs. liaurie show signs of anxiety for their only two children who are now overseas, and the gray hairs bespeak the parental anxiety "for the boys." The Late Mrs. Je**e Woolf The funeral services were held for the remains of Mrs. Woolf, who passed away early Monday morning. She has been a constant sufferer for several years, and heart failure is the immediate cause of her death. She leaves a family of three little girls and a boy, also a fond husband to mourn her loss. Mrs. Woolf was much loved by the whole community . on account of her kindly nature. She is the daughter of President Thomas Duce, of the Stake Presidency, and has a large number of brothers and sisters located throughout the district. Interment was made at . the Cardston cemetery. Major Brown Back Major H. B. Brown who has been absent for the past three or four months, taking a company of soldiers to England, returned Sunday night by automobile from Lethbridge. The major is looking well, and proudly speaks of the gallant work of our Canadian men. He is still on the strength, and may be called for duty in conducting other parties overseas, unless orders are received to the contrary. Tonight the Young Men's and Young Women's Mutual Improvement Associations of the Cardston two wards are holding a social, musical program consisting chiefly of patriotic numbers, etc., in the Cardston school auditorium. This winter the two organizations who are akin to the Y.M.C.A. and the Y.W.C.A. will hold regular weekly classes each evening, studying the principles of the gospel, and helpful principles of how to live every day. Mr. Sterling O. Low and Mrs. David M. Steed are presidents of the organization of the first ward, while Air. Gerald Brown and Mrs. ricott Brown are presidents ot the Second Ward. Red Cross Annual Meeting. i The annual meeting of the Cards-ton district branch was held in the | court house on Friday evening, Oct. 5th. Before the meeting commenced its serious business a short program was put on by the school children, superintended by Miss N. Sykes, Miss Bessette and Miss Hall. The program consisted of a very pretty knitting song given by the very young ladies suitably equipped with the materials for their work. Then followed a charming duet by two also very young ladles entitled "I Want My Daddy." Then followed "Nursing Daddy's Men" by a larger group very nicely attired in Red Cross nurse costumes. The music concluded with "Keep the Home Fires Burning," which was admirably staged, with a fire for the performers to sit around, and was very well sung by Misses Casia Folsom, June Lamb, Geneva Duce, Priscilla Layton, Rosetta Woolf and Thelma Beeder. A reading followed by Mrs. H. B. Stacpoole and then the serious work ot reorganization was taken up. As soon as the program was over the minutes of the last annual meeting were read and the reports of the work accomplished, since Oct. 1st, 1917, were handed in. The results are as follows: > Total of money collected, $3885.59; expenditures, $3528.88;-balance in the Union Bank, $356.71. The money has been expended as follows: Cash to provincial office. $572.90; paid for merchandise. $2683.03; buttons, tags and badges, $49.00; sundries, $223.95. The sundries consist of sewing machines, chairs and necessaries which remain the property of the society and are part ot its assets which can later be turned into money if not required. The work room h*s yielded great results, especially during the last eight months. The following is a list of the work forwarded to Calgarv in the last year; Amputation covers 222, nurses' aprons 65, arm slings 334, kit bags 113, P.P. bags 674. comfort bags 45, T bandages 740, triangular bandages 122, -M T bandages 193, bed socks 352, cotton binders 1142, flannel binders 266, stretcher caps 24, surgeon caps 12, B P covers 454, dressing gowns 74, surgical gowns 90, handkerchiefs 360, housewives 14, pillow cases 1322, pyjama suits 189, quilts 3, sheets 60, day shirts 161, surgeon sleeves 26, nurse sleeves 5, slings, shaped 50, socks 390 pairs, operating stockings 154, towels 118, pyjama trousers 2, fomentation wringers 265, shoulder wraps 7, wash cloths 110.

Mr. Martin Woolf, M.P.P., gave a very instructive talk upon the needs of the Red Cross and the part the provincial government had undertaken, stating that we could not expect that even if the war came to an end. we should be absolved from. Red Gross work for many years, therefore we might as well make up our minds to keep together and work together in this great cause which had the active support of the provincial government in this province. Mr. Woolf stated that his services were always at the beck and call of the society In any capacity that would be found most needed. A resolution of condolence was passed, and ordered to be forwarded to MrB.. F. Best, in regard to the unfortunate accident that had overtaken Mr. Best, as it was felt by one and all that the loss of one of our most efficient and always ready Red Cross workers was a serious loss to the society at this or at any time. A Life Membership. The secretary, IS. N. Barker, was then presented with a life membership in the society by the members of the Ladies' Committees, and he expressed the deep satisfaction this generous donation afforded him, saying that no [ greater honor could be conferred upon any1 man or woman thaw a life membership in this noble society. The Cardston branch intends to start the new year with accelerated speed and intends to turn out a greater volume ot work than ever and hopes to raise far more money this year than last, which, owing to our greater losses every day is becoming more and more, needed. A resolution of thanks was tendered to the outgoing committees and workers and also to the generous help that had been given by both men and ' women in the several places surrounding Cardston.
