Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 24, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta 'PAGE FOUR 71!E LfeTHBRlDGE DAILY HERALD TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 1918 zu...... Xetbbttfcge Iberalfc XetbbrtOjje, Hlbetta f" DAILY ANi> WEEKLY Proprietors and Publlahem fHB LETHBRIDGE HERALD PRINTING COMPANY, LIMITED Ml fitfi Street South, Lethbrldg* W. A. Buchanan est fighting time of the year there. On the west front there has been a marking time, though It is eviden: preparations are nnder way for a greater thrust than any yot reported, with the object ot clearing France ot the enemy this fall. Lloyd George is the only lender who can win an election in Great Britain at this period. Like every leader of a government, whethor in war times or poaco times, he has bitter enemies and unrelentless critics. These individuals are not very numerous or very powerful in Britain. A man may rant against Lloyd George, accuse him of betraying his old friends and his old policies, attack his associates iu the government and his policy in. Ireland, if there is such a thing as an Irish policy, but he is likely to end up his outburst by admitting that the little Welshman is the only man in Britain capable of directing a war government and retaining the support of the bulk of the people. Lloyd George hasn't abandoned his principles; he hasn't become a Tory; he hasn't become an anti-home ruler. All that he has done has been to put the war in the foreground and until i it is won nothing else matters. Britain is a hard domain to govern. It is democratic to the hilt, it has self-government of the broadest kind, but it is never satisfied. It demands something and gets it and then asks for mora. That is a characteristic of j all self-governing countries. The pea- j pie demanded Lloyd George and they j got him and some of t'.iem are not satisfied because he hasn't won the war or lower.ed taiation or cut off drink, or interned the aliens. It won't do Lloyd George any harm to have the people nagging him: he believes in the people and will heed what they say even if he doesn't always obey their orders. Lloyd George will win the nest election. He is the only leader for the occasion. More people agree- upon him than any other leader In Britain. Asquith still has a considerable following, hut very few rate him as a possible prime minister again. Arthur Henderson is a force and a factor with labor, but labor is divided and will- remain divided until after the ILK RIVER HAS A HEAVY RAIN (l'rom Our Own CorrcsDondenO Milk River, Sept. 24.-A heavy thunder storm passed ovor the district on Saturday night and on Sunday settled into a steady rain. This will help the farmers in their fall plowing. Communion services were conducted on Sunday night by Rev. Griffiths, Maslnasin, at the Union church, and though it was a wet night a large congregation turned out. Next Sunday Mr. Scott, our minister will preach his farewell sermon, and unless some new arrangement is made we will be without Protestant services for some time. Thomas Smith, representative of the Great War Veterans League visited Milk River last week to report on the possibilities of the district for a returned veterans' farming centre. He was much impressed, with our district and we hope to see many veterans located here. Mr. Ciias. Griffiths is in charge of the post office during the absence of , Postmaster Ford, who accompanied by his wife lias gone holidaying to r.iutff. >* PICKED UP IN **f V. C.

T. Bryrnner, Manager Warner Branch......J. H. S. Gordon, Manager Milk River Branch......J. V. Steele, Manager Teach the Children to Save Habits are acquired early in life. Children, who are taught the value of money and the habit of saving, grow up into good business men and capable women. The easiest way to teach children to save, is to start a Savings Account for each child ($1.00 each is sufficient). After a child has saved another dollar to make an additional deposit, he or she will have a better appreciation of just what a dollar stands for, and how much work and self-denial it represents.

Take wool-one of the big items in the making of good clothes-it costs 65c a pound compared with 20c. in 1914. On imported fabrics, freight rates and insurance-due to the submarine menahce -add enormously to the cost of the finished garment The cost of manufacturing has also advanced. Fit-Reform has tried to serve you faithfully and well. They can't begin to get all the cloth they want-but what they do get is good. They can't begin to make all the Fit-Reform clothes they could sell-but what they do make are right. If you have a Suit or Overcoat to buy, we urge you to do so now. With the limited quantities available, and no chance to duplicate orders, it is wise to buy while our assortments are so satisfactory. woo McKELVIE & McGUIRH LETHBRID^ 7 ;
