Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 31, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta ROYAL CROWN A Clean Shavei a Smooth Face, is the natural result where the nea shaving sticic has been used. The rich, creamy lather, which does not dry on the face, exerts a marvellous influence on the beaj^d. It softens the whiskers to a degree that makes it an easy and pleasant matter for the razor to remove them. The Witch Hazel properties in the soap soothe and refresh the skin as no other shaving soap will. The ne� and better shaving stick is sold in a neat nickel box, at the price of others.

Eilinonton, Octohijr, 28.-The Alberta Oovcrnnicnt'.s doci.s-ion to in-trodi'fo an oight-liour law at the coming sc.ssion of thu logislatiiro is in accord with it.s oft cxpri^.ssorl do-U'rmination to advance the intt'ro.sls of the working clussos. It has iiut on the statutt'.s a Afechanics Lien Act, which is pronoiinccf.l by coiniw-tent judges to lie the best, from the .s'tandpoint of the worloingman, to ba foiintcd legislation that will .save the great mass ot the people from being presented with huge bills of costs' t).v the law.vers any time they may be comi>elled to go to law. To the W(jrkingman that means a great deal. It shows him that the L/iberal party in Allierta is not catering to the professions-and a man was heard to say the other day that the medical and legal professions were the worst combines in c-Tti-stencc-but on the other hand is eager to make legal procedure as ex-peilitious and inexpcnstve as possible. Then again, and to my mind one of the most helpful moves on behalf of the workingman, one that may not be appreciated at the moment, but will be the ^onger the act if n force, was the provision in the Liquor License Ordinance, preventing wagesj checks licing cashed in hotels. It was too fiwiuently the case for laboring men to go to the bar, buy a drink and in payment pass over a check to be cashetl. Once the change came hack to them there was a temp tation to sjicnd more of 'the weekly earnings in Hquor and in more cases than one men have"gone home with hardly a cent of money to meet the household expenses of the week. The Jaw comas to the protection of the wives and children, if not the men, and says that a wage check cannot bo cashed in a hotel and con.sequent-ly the main purpose of the visit of mosit men to' a hotel is removed. The vi)rkingman will g�t his check cached somewhere else whew the temptation to s|jcnd all the earnings foolishly does not exist. This is a good law Bind should assist the temperance cause as w�ll as enable the workingman to save the money that would otherwise would be spent in As mctrlioned before (ho acrengu of insurable graiii.s under croiJ in Iho province this year was estiinntefl at T'lU.DOf) ncruK.
