Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 18, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY. OCTOBER 18, 1918 'PAGE TIIREB THAT SON-IN-LAW OF PA'S By Wellington ] Nursing PURE FRESH MILK From tiibBroiiloala-teBtod cows -AiiyoTiB requiring such milk for babiea may do so dally. The milk Is (roe to thone who cannot pay for it, and at cost to those who can. Three G ienerals From Middlesex (A. E. Miller In London Kreo Pre.is). I liavo n6t BO far in theae talks of inino attempted to spoak of .Major-(Icn. Sir Arthur Currie, commander of tlio Canadian Corps in l-^-ance. I have been reserving the relation of juy oxperionces with the great and eallanl Canadian In the hope that thereby I might the better be able to do Justice to these expevlonce.s, which were among the most memorable In a �wonderful serius. It was my pleasure the past week to i)articlpale In an in-i;ident that is closely related to Sir Arthur, however, and I am taking the liberty of here setting down the facts, albeit 1 am aware that the story is quite out of the regular order of things. Mr. F. R Mao.klin, business manager of The Winnipeg Free Press, and niy-Hcir, had,dinner with Gen. Currie the I'ir.-t night we were at the hattle front. V/hen we were coming away, the geu-f'ral asked that we should call upon his molher and say to her that he was iiuito well and perhaps would soon bi>, home to see her. It was good to !-ee the light in the eyes of the great v,-arrior when he spoke of his mother. Men soften with the experiences they have over there. They speak the Diiiigs that are on their minds, and hij?> nothing. What they say and do is sincere, to the crossing of the last "I"' and the dotting of the last "I." Tliore were many tilings that might have been uppermost In the thoughts 111' Cnn. Currie that startling nlglit. iiul the thought that was first as he stood, in the beautiful moonlight that liaMunl his chateau and its gardens in Hofi liglu, with we Canadians, one of K'.i froMi so close to his birthplace, was of his mother. Where Gen, Currie Grew to Manhood ' And so when the opportunity came we motored to Strathroy, in West Mld-dlesex, 3U miles from London, the birthplace of the famous general, and whore Mrs. Currie, sr., lives with her son. ,lolin Currie. on one of the finest farms in the west riding, ller two daughters are her companions. The time that wci wore jirivileged to spend there is a memory that we shall long treasure, so freighted was it witli sentiment, in relation to llie absent hoy In Fmnce. To the mother heart the glories that her son has won are fully acceptable. But It was not of these that she would consent to speak. Her anxiety was to know of his health, and the dangers that surrounded him. How soon might we e.xpeet the war to end. and her son to return? The genera Is sisters were his inseparable companions in his youth-ho is yet a relatively young man-and they spoke lovingly of these days gone hy. I am quite sure the honors that he has won are not Inst ui)on (hem. But these are.Jhlngs that they treasure in the inner temple, and do not dwell upon nor allow otliers to dwell unon In their presence. The greate.st boon that fortune might confer upon mother and sisters would be (he sound of the footstep of the stalwart Arthur. John Currie, the brother, is known the conn, ty over for his sterling character. The Strathroy Viir was in progress when we were there, and ",Tack" Currie is a director and had his hands full. Over in France a handsome young, engineer named Lindsay is giving services to his country that are greater In value than may readily bo estimated. He is the chief engineer of the Canadian Forces. He went over In 1D14, at the first call of his country, and has been there ever since. I sat next to him at the dinner party at Currie's chateau. Mr. Macklin occupied the next chair. Macklin had known hini in the West; I/had known his father, Dr. Lindsay, in Strathroy. Together we engaged him in lively conYersatlon, 'for there was much that he wanted to kiiow of the homo land, both east and west. His interest, like that of Gen. Currie, was clearly greatest in relation to Strathroy, and I found the reason ere long. Not only Is it his birthplace, but his mother also lives there. Aud such -was our fortune that when we vyere at Strathroy WB were privileged to meet with Mrs. Lindsay, and to tell her that her son, the major-general, is in splendid health. How foi-tunate a lown is Strathroy, that it should have been the birtlrplace of two men so illustrious in the services of their country, so unsparing of self, and each capable of givln|r leadership'ahd help in the great hour of crisis. -A Major-General Who Is Close to Inner Circle Nor was this all, for we motored over to Glenooe, only a few miles distant, /ind here found the mother aud Histers Ot auoUier splendid son. ot Canada, who is serving his native land without flnanciel return and at great sacrifice to business Interests, in a capacity that calls for the exercise of the utmost sUill and unwearying devotion. The fortunate mother is Mrs. MacRne, of Gloncoe, and the son is Major-Gen. A. D, MacRae of Van. * � � ? THE NEW C. P. R. VICE- ? : PRESIDENT : ^^.c-o^ D. C.
