Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 9, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta CtTMBRIDUt GAILY MERALL, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER t, AT SEATTLE LEARN OF ALBERTA ;f ,C" (Special to the Heiald) 7.-A clear, fresh, show in Seattle sounds like To those who have as- in their minds the idea of l noisy, brick-paved, clattering, booming, metropolis of Puget Sound with the A. Y. P. Exposition, 'vvisit to the fair grounds comes in nature of a great but delightful transaction, in'fact .the Seattle spirit wild desire to make a noise. But what a wonderful contrast out at the fair grounds. Hire forty or fifty thousand people a day move about and are taken of with a, quiitm-Sij, a neatness and a compla- cency that or should be, an ob- ject lesson to the anti-noise societies of the. world. The whole thing shows When the inquirer for information as to homesites in" the West bumps against a Washington talking ma- chine, he is enthusiastically informed that for One-hundred and Five-hun- dred dollars an acre he can get sage HURT BY I FLYING COW Pontiac. Barton lies in u critical condition as> the result of a accident. While cows across the Northwestern brush land such and such a coun-; Railroad tracks, one of the cows was _ _ VIT- 4 fllfflWtl t.nTPP awakening. In all the expositions a 'that the United States has produced a wonderful organization in which in the last two decado.s there never has been, and probably never can be anything .prettier -than Seattle has to offer. Seattle is a lucky town. -Its luck has followed it in the fair business as in everything else. When they started out to look for grounds they found, right in their in the University site, the finest grounds that Nature could provide. Lying between Lake Washington and Lake Union, timbered with the natural .which have by wonderful good luck escaped the forest fires, the land undulating and picturesque., the sce- nic artist and the architect found ready to hand the ideal in natural beauty upoa which to construct their White City and in their construc- .tion they took.full advantage of all the natural advantages. The build- ings "are architectural triumphs. The grass plots are as pretty as an Eng- lish lawn. Only the fact that the paths are asphalt removes the_ feeling that the thing is some great park., And there, is a har- mony in design -and a sequence in construction -which proves that over all some master artist mind presided to bring out one great- scheme of a 1 city, Dreamily beautiful. Next, to the beautiful, the thing, that strikes the visitor forcibly is the quietness with which the "whole thing is carried out. Away from the grounds, down in the crowded city, whole Seattle idea seems to be 'to make -a row. The town IP blatant, P .crude, riotous in its clamor. There 'is no cessation by day or by night. Two hundred and fifty thousand peo- 1 pie seem to be unanimously endeav- oring to create a universal din. A fire 'brigade would pass dowc the streets of a Canadian city with lees noise than one of their street cars makes on Second avenue. The ordinary business seem to xe- main -idea seems to have been to allow visitors to see the t-xhibits free from the nerve- wracking noises of tbv city. In fact, one hundred yards away from the blatant Pay Streak, there'.is nut a jarring sound; 'nothing but subdued hum the thousands of visitors as tlu-y pass from build- ing to; building. try, that for a few hundred more per acre he can plant it with trees, get the water to :it drive off'the taran- tulas and rattlers, etc., and that then the frost does not get his buds he will ha TO in three years for a mere bagatelle of or thereabout, the 'entire.product of 10 acres of fruit all ior his own except what he has to j hand over to the irrigation company. Most cheerful prospect. The man Kansas or Missouri usually es- capes with 'a slight pallor, but some new idea.s about the cost of irrigated fruit lands. 'quire a clamor ,to accompany seems io fce aH wrapped up in its to this the great and disting- uishing feature ''is., the astonishing of money; that have been laid out by Washington and Oregon counties to display their respective allurements. The several states have their respective buildings all their splendor, but this was to have been expected. But to find jtinarle coun- ties in the Inland Empire with lav- ish -displays, tons of literature and regiments of talking, writing and boosting publicity experts deed a .surprise. These Western Am- ericans are certainly good advertis- :ers and they know an opportunity when it, crops up. They are taking full advantage of the A. Y. P. and like the bread cast upon the water, it will return to them a hundred fold. Tn this respect British Columbia made a terrible fall down. If ever there a country that needed the advprtising to set its emigration (that country is British Columbia, but except for the -efforts of the Vancouver World, which has es- tablished a publicity department of its own; the coast' province is-un- represented. Alberta, however, is "there with the poods." All the Washington and Ore- gon counties' displays are in the Agri- cultural building, under the very same roof is "the Alberta Provincial exhibit and the Canadian Pacific Land Department's -exhibit. The ar- rangement could not be more advan- tageous. In fact, the proximity of the two entirely different classes of exhibits and the great contrast in the opportunities offered, constitutes a '''feature by which Alberta suffers nothing.
