DISTRIBUTOR FOR SOUTHERN ALBERTA ALLEN JACK LETHBRlDGE-WEYBURN BUILDING, 18T AVE,, S, LETHBRIDGE, PHONE 1344 -TP A BOOM IN WOOL Clothes to Cost More, Says a London Newspaper The London Telegraph of recent date contains the following: "Only those in close touch with tho wool end of the textile industry know the tremendous advances wliich have taken place sinro Ihe outbreak of war; but as siring draws nigh the general public will have lo pay appreciably more money for new gar-meuls, or else be satisfied with wearing niucli poorer class of fabric Ih.iii they purchased twelve months ago. "However much the gospel of economy is preached by iiariiamentarians. It ia hardly likely that the average working man will be content to be olotlied in shoddy and cotton when ho is earning big wages; hence some really good lines are still being made. The only drawback will be lhat colors will be more liable to fade, and to a Tory large extent blacks and blues are the colors which are being dyed, if women buyers find that bright colors lose some of their appearance they must not unduly criticize, but remember that ciioro is a scarcity of dye-wares, which is a perplexing problem in manufacturing circles. "The (|Uostion has been put; Why are such tremendous advances being named hy manufacturers'; Tlio reason can be supplied quite easily. The war ha.s jirodueed the very opposite effect to that anticipated in August and September, 1014. Fine wools mot with a partial slnmi) in December, 1914, but last year values practically doubled, and instead of wool being clionp nil qualities are selling at record values. At tho recent series of London sales [i further advance of often 10 per cent, in merinos has taken place, and cross-breds have also moved up sensibly. As a matter of fact tho nation has not yet realized tho immense quantities of wool which are being absorbed in the production of kliaki fabrics for our own army and those of our allies, and one may assert that if the war continues anotiior twelve months all prospective supplies will he wanted for array purpoBos alone. "A soldier on active servieo can not do without at least three or four complete , outllts per year, and us it requires, taking it all round, VI to 13 pounds of wool to produce a full out-Ill, the immense quantities of raw material that are neejlod to clothe tlte armies pt Great Britain and her allies will be veallze(V. It must be remembered tUat wool loses all round half \\'oiBlit in iscourlng, wUicU luenus � The Empire's Demands for food are greater this year than Zosfc, Less summer-fallow and less fall ploughing than usual in 1915 make it necessary that the farmers of the Prairie provinces in 1916 shall sow extensively on stubble land MR. J. H, GRISDALE, Director, and the Superintendents of the Dominion Experimental Farrns, urge the following upon the Farmers: STUBBLE LAND OF FIRST CROP AFTER FALLOW Burn stubble thoroviglily a.s soon as surfftto is dry. Fire about noon time when steady wind 'is blowing. Cultivate at once about two inclie.s deep, tlien sow tlio wheat nnd liarrow inmiediatoly afterwards. If possible, where area is large, harrow first, tlinn cultivate, soe bush, per acre; in Western Saskuteiiewnn IM bush. On light soils and dry lands sow i4 hush. less. STUBBLE LAND OF SECOND CROP AFTER FALLOW Usually this land should be summer-fallowed, but this year muoli of it must be in crop. Burn stubble if possible. Tills maj' bo lu'lpod by scattering straw freely over the field. Wrap old sacking about the end of a 4-tQOt stick. Dip in guBoliuo. Set on tiro and shako on straw and stubble. Carry gasoline in open nail. If stubble is too light to burn tiien cultivate, Imrrowrtnd aecci a little lighter tlian above, Oats and Inirley will do bolter than wheat. If shoo drills are useil ploupli instead of cultivating. Plough, pack or roll, and then luirrow, if land is grassy or weedy. In llie drier sections at least one-third of all cropping laud should bo summor-fuliowed every year, STUBBLE LAND OF THIRD CROP AFTER FALLOW Do not BOW to grain, but suinmor-fallow. Bolter use your spring labour on other stubble laud and tbiui make sure of crops in 1910 and 1017. Put your labour on laud that is likely to give best rotuVns. SEED , Sow only clean, plump seed of tostwi variety. Use tho fanning mill thoroughly and treat seed for smut.. Have horses, harness and maohinos in goo'd shape before starting work. i .
