Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 6, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta Lethbrldgc Pally Herald, -Tuesday, Sept. 6, J910: As the enamelled metal bed Is to the wooden bedstead, so the "Ideal" Guaranteed Metal Bed is to ordinary metal beds. If it were not above the average in every detail, the "Ideal" Guarantee would not be on the fco trail. For while any metal bed is satr.tary, sensible, practical, the "Ideal" Metal Bed is all these and more besides. The Guarantee label means satisfaction to the buyer. Because "Ideal" Metal Beds retain the snowiness of their no chance of its turning yellow or dingy. Take it down or set it up without risk of breaking it, and with no need for a mallet and much parts fit snugly. Forty inspections make us so sure of that that we can afford to guarantee you. Maybe you will be asked a little more for "Ideal" forty cents more. But that cannot weigh against the certainty the "Ideal" Guarantee gives you of genuine of the same quality in material and workmanship, even though you pay but four dollars Write for Booklet No. 140 for your Metal Bed. aw fcUte U dtthrnt GEO.L.LING, AGENT FOR LETHBRlDQE.

FREDERICK HAMILTON COPYRIGHT 1910 1Y PUBL.I8HER8 Canada has embarked upon a very big, a very expensive and a very pro- tracted piece of work in attempting to organize a naval force of her own. It is important that she should have clear ideas as to what she wants; that she should get afcout her work in ac- cordance with a sound plan; and that she should do nothing at the outset which1 will at a later stage work mis- chief. First, regard to our object. We are building over navy to be use- ful in Imperial wars. An Imperial war is likely to spread itself over a very large proportion of the earth's surface, and so large a theatre of operations, will divide itself into pri- mary and secondary fields of action; into regions where 'the big fighting is done, and into regions where less im- portant fighting is done. In an Im- perial war Canada might be the scene of the big fighting, but she is rather more likely to be a secondary sphere of operations; that is, that while the great fleets will contend on the other side, of one or other of the oceans which touch her shores, she may be n danger of annoyance by casual raid- ngs from detached naval forces of the enemy. Thus there are two distinct sorts of work a Canadian Naval Ser- ice may contemplate. It may aim at defending the country against second- ary attacks, leaving it to the Royal Navy to look after the big fighting; and It may aim high'er, and desire ufther to bear a hand in the big fight- ng. Of course, the former is the earl- est duty to which we must address ourselves. The Canadian coast line, Janadian Coastal waters, Canadian mds of ocean trade routes, must be protected. When that is done we may help in the main operations. I am wholly in favor of going fur- ther ,of taking part in the main opera- tions of any Imperial war; and of or- ganizing our service from the outset thither as the situation demands. 2. The Canadian seamen must be trained in the idea that they must serve anywhere in the world. They must not be taken by surprise at an or- der to cross the Atlantic and report to the Admiral in command of such and s.uch a fleet. When I lay down this latter condition, I demand a great deal. It will not do for our men mere- ly to be willing. They must be also skilful. The business of handling ships is skilled work in the very high- est sense... It is one thing for "a cap- tain to command a single ship and be better business to pack off our vin Sharp, chauffeur, left -Warner this in view. ,For us to do hoth- REBATE OF DUTY ON SUGAR USED IN MAKING WINE.

Sept. order in coun- cil -has been passed declaring that when imported sugar on which duties nave been paid is used in the manu- facture wine produced from the juice of the grape, there may be al- lowed a. draw-back of ninety-nine per cent, of duties. Such draw-back, how ever, shall not be paid unless the duty 3ias 'been paid on sugar so used as aforesaid within three years of the date of tine manufacture of the wine, unless the claims are presented -by the manufacturer at any. one time ag- gregate ten Rev. Father Bonbat. 70 years old, one of the oldest priests in Ontario, lied at Windsor, Ont. aoout 9 a.ih., and made the .drive to Lethbrldge In aa. auto by Tray of New Uayton. We.lle and Raymond, reaching our destination about noon, and-after listening to the addresses both at the depot and on the square, returned the same evening. Although, the day not s. perfect one, had a pleasant trip, the. roads very good nearly all, the way. Raymond we found several evidences of recent raine, an-d.-this with the ov- erflow' of the Irrigation ditches made some very bad .'-Please fix-up your roads a little, -Sister' Raymond, and we may auto-over again. There were evidences of .some very -good crops having been harvested all ,the way along, and some: good crops -still to be cut. but there were -places wheri tite crops were not worth, cutting. These conditions exist nearly all over thii district, and we are the more convinced that the .fields that pro- duced the good crops were those that j ing but attend to our local defence, leaving the care of the main -war to Great Britain, or rather -to ithe rest of the Empire, -would be like a man undertaking to keep the grass .cut on his lawn, but leaving his father and brothers to pay the ren-t of the house.' So long as the main fighting is on the other. side, of the ocean, very, slight forces usually will suffice for strictly local defence. The cruisers which an enemy would spare for the purpose of harassing a secondary sphere of op- erations, such as "the Canadian coast would be, if the main fighting were in the North sea, or offothe- coast of Australia, as a rule, would be lew and weak, and could be driven away by a few ships of ,no. great strength. The real fighting on our behalf be done by the big British fleet far a way; and If that fleet ..were the en- emy would soon "place upon our'coasts a force with which no local defence squadron could cope. Our- plight would be like that of the man already men- dred yards behind him why then the Sub sweats big drops till he gets used to it. Let us suppose he is third in a line of four, that the hour is near mid- night, and that> he has been on watch since eight So far, we have kept our distance beautifully; we have even sneered .at the next line a mile away to the right, where they have once or twice been, "all over the shop." In twen-ty minutes there will come relief a bowl of hot cocoa, three p.ulls at a pipe and blessed bed. The sub watches the speed-lights of the next ahead, for as those lanterns change so must he adjust his pace. But the next ahead is using up all the basest coal she can find ,and the wind blows not less than two million samples of it into his straining eyes. He has he -had the distance absolutely correct; he would swear. -to it. The Quarter master by the tiny wheel heaves up one bi shoulder. TJU that moment he has given no sign of life. The Sub's hee] taps impatiently on the planking; his mo.uth hovers over the engine room voice tube; his lips open to speak to the Quartermaster in case in case it should necessary to steer out of line for something has gone wrong with the next ahead. She has badly over- run her station, and steers to left of our leading .ship.

MiiBORN A few armoured cruisers -would make short work of a force amply strong enough for secondary local defence Thus, to take part in our own rea defence we must help In "the main battle. It does not follow that we must b.uild only the biggest pow- erful ships if we are to help in the main fighting. The very large ships are needed, of course, and sooner or later we should provide them., Bat all sorts of ships are needed in a fleet; not merely the Dreadnoughts and In- domltables, but also cruisers and de- stroyers, and all sorts of cruisers at that. Here is the raal problem.. In every Imperial war the intensity ol the local dangers the need- for strength in the central vary. In one war there will be very little danger from raiding cruisers; in another war :here will be greater danger. Suppose Canada has half a -dozen moderate siz- ed crnisars and a score of destroyers on the coast nearest the scene of hos- tilities. In a._war of the. first type a couple of cruisers and a half dozen destroyers might be ample for local the whole of her force might be need- ed. In the first case it surely would niore necessary than good ships. If the Japanese and Russians -had chang- ed ships before Tsa-Shima the result would have been the same. In most British naval victories the enemy had the better ships. I am infinitely more concerned in the men we train than In the ships we provide for them. Needs of the Situation Thus we seem to have arrived at two she situation. 1. Canadian public must recog- nize its ships raust eome- on the Canadian coast-Hue and away from it; that its >s will be doing it sen-Ice when across the ocean. It must be Filling to soe seat'-aitiw au4 build. The important thing is the men we train, and the -spirit in which we train them. Good officers, good men, well educated ,well trained, well disciplined, skilful, and brave, are far as those lanterns change-so must he vice; it is another thing for him to command a ship which js one of a squadron. To illustrate this point, I shall make two quotations; one from Kipling's "Fleet in the other from the melancholy book In which the Russian naval officer Semenoff tells of the courage of Ro- jestvensky s fleet from Lriban to Tsus- hima. First "But when he stands on the bridge at midnight and essays to keep the proper distance in front of the next Wake tHe Caplsin "This strike's Sub' with b.uried clearness; but the impetus of the re- cent ten knots is on us" all, and we are all going, much faster than we think.

'The'pointer.on the dial before, the Quartermaster moves through sonie -minute arc, and our head falls off to the left. It is exces- sively lonely, on this high and lofty bridge, and the spindle shaped hull beneath looks very unmanageable. Our next ahead- _ draws away slowly from port and we continue at a safe distance to starboard of her. The line is less of a lump and more of a diagonal than it was. Our next astern is sliding back to where she belongs. Now. two resolutions at a time, the Sub i-ets out 'till he sees our erring sister ahead, return to her place, and joyfully slinks in behind her. The mops his' heated bro'w. thanking heaven that the Captain didn't wake up and the tangle was straightened before the end of the watch. "But the Captain was awake all the time. The change of speed roused him, and he lay watching the tell-tale compass overhead, his mouth at the bridge voice tube; one eye cocked through 'the open port, and one leg over the.-edge. of -the case. The Sub must learn his business for find confidence in iso- lation, as the Captain did a quarter of a century ago. It is not good for him to know that he is being watched." Testimony from Russia That is a picture of the training of a small cruiser in company with the fleet To see what such training does, let us turn to the Russian's testimony. It will be remembered that Rojesven- sfcy's fleet while passing over the Dog- ger Bank fired by mistake on some British fishing vessels, and greatly ex- asperated the "British nation. The fleet went to "V'igo, and on leav- ing that anchorage a British Cruiser Squadron shadowed it to its next stop- ping place. Listen to Commander Semenoff, -who was on the Russian flagship: "At 10 p. m. a man of mast three up on PERFECTION COCOA (MAPLC IXAF.LASIU' Give tne children Cowan's fection Cocoa and 'drink it yourself; It is the best beverage for young; and old. u', TEE COWAN TORONTO. north and to the south of us, 5 to.'1" miles off.
