Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 3, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE FOURTEEN THK ' IT 'HimroClK DAfT Y ilEHALD i SATURDAY, APRIL 3, 1920 Ten-Mile-an-Hour Speed Limit to Stop Joy Riding Chief of Police Gillespie wants a leu-mlle^n-hour �p�od limit in Xjeth-bHdge. The Chief is doine what is right and motor car drlrers have only thttmaelves to blame for it. The remedy for the motor car menace on-the streets of L.ethbridgp re�t8 entirely with the drivers. It Is the duty of careful and coriatcero'te drivers to force the careless and foolish motorists to have some seuso. There is too much "Joy riding" going on in the city and that i� probably the reason Chief Oillejpie wants the speed limit reduced. 'His recomm�nda.tion does not meet with the approval of motor car drivers and they have good reasons for It. But neverfheless someUiing^ bM to be done to stop all the foolishness that ]s goins on. The. younger lement of drivers is chieily responaJtHe for ail the kicks that Jiave been heard About the manner in which motor cars are being driven. ' ' Xutomohiles are only machines and do the bidding of the driver who is Incapahle of rsstorlng human life. If tho younger men. who so often deilra to show their lady friends "what wontlea-ful stunts they can pull with their cars would bear this fact in mind there would be less of the Mbsatlonal and careless driving going on. TlioM who want to see L^thbrldge streets sate for pedestrians are oblectliig to Chief (lillesple'a recommendation. They argup that it is �ator to" have a car running c1obi� to twenty railea an hour than it Is to hare it running ten. This argument might not apply on.the ^-ell-paved treetain the centre of the city but In the other sections, where mud and ruts prevail, it is necessary to have a certain amount of lieadway on the oar BO that It can be handled by the driver in the proper manner. In these districts the danger of accidents is far greater than in the down town section. It is In the residential sections where children play CO the streets, where the children are likely to run out in -front of a paaaing car. In such a case the driver wants to have absolute control of his car. He wants to bo confident that his car will go whjre he wants it to go and will not stall. The chances tor the latter occurring at a jipeed of ten miles an hour on a dirt road are many. nearly $100,000,000 annually for motor license foas and taxes.

ONE GREAT ESm TOAWOMAN'SHEALTH IS e NERVES Ifatiin Intended women to be strong, healtliy and happy as the day is long, instead of being sick and wretched. But How can any wqman be healthy and happy when, the whole nervous ystem ia unstrung. The trouble is ^ey par more attention to their social and household duties than they dio to their health. Is it any wonder then that ^ey become irritable and nervous, have hot flushes, faint and spells, smothering and sinking apells, become weak and nervous, and everything in life becomes dark and gloomy. Mllbum's Heart and N�rve Pills are the very remedy that nerV-ous, tired-out, (weary women need to restore them to the blessings of good health. Mrs. P. H. Ryan, Sand Point, N. S.. writea:-"I have been a great sufferer from nerve troubles. I was so weak and nervous I could not sleep at night and iny aippetite was very poor.' 1 could' not walk across the floor without trembling. I had hot flushes and fainting spells. Wlien I was on ray second box of Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills I began to feel better and kept on until I had usied six boxes when I felt like a different person. I am never without them in the housa and recommend them to all who suffer with their nervee." Price 50c a box at all dealers or mailed direct on receipt of price by The T.

LL SPEND BritisH Columbia Plans To Complete Interprovincial Highway Work in Province Will Take From Three to Five Years To Complete VICTORIA, B. C, April S.-Announcement is made by Hon. J. H. King, provincial minister of public works, that approximately $8,000,000 will be expended on highways in the province during the next three to five years. Among the projects is one to fill in a gap in the trans-provincial road, which, when completed, will give an uninterrupted route for automobiles from the coast to the prairies. * ?*????> : in addition to the standard equipment of some of the latest medium priced passenger automobiles, a folding kodak, compass, vanity case and smoking sets are included. It was during 1912 that an impetus was given to motor transportation in Turkey, and in July, 1914, the number of automobiles circulating In Constantinople was less than 400. GJen H. Ciirtlss, the inventor of the aeroplane, has a "motor bungalow" which in compactness and serviceability far surpasses any vehicla yet produced for outdoor life. The State Senate of Kansas ro-cently passed a bill to make the penalty for theft of an automobile imprisonment for from 5 to 15 years. The House already has passed tho bill. The first motor truck to be produced in America on a commercial scale was in Cleveland, Ohio in 1S9S, when eight five-horse power rom-mercial vehicles were made and marketed. Many of the raw materials, including the magneto and electric systems of the Sp;;nish automobile production, are iir ported from the United States. Two companies are planning to operate motor bus lines along Broad street and adjoining traffic lanes in Philadelphia on a five cent fare basis. Appro.ximately $16,000 was realized in the recent auction, sale of Covern-ment automobiles, motorcycles, and trucks, at Fort Jay Governor's Island, N.Y.

An average of 28 cars a minute, or a total of 15,979 motor vehicles, is the daily traffic ''record' at Forty-Second street and Fifth avenue, Xew York City.

Oao result of the iovernment'.i efforts to Increase , the production of wheat during tile last two years, has been the creation of the largest wheat farm in the~#oriav some 200,000 acres of Indiau'landk Montana and Wyo> ming. It this farm yields-only 20; bushels per icita'it will mean 4,000,000 bushels of wheat added to the 1919 crop, which at the government price of 12.26 Rer bushel, would be. worth 19,040.000.' There are two cipher remarkable things about this farm; In the'.first place, it was conceived and is. heing managed by one man, Thomas D. Campbell, formerly a North DakoU farmer; in the second place, not a single horse will be in use on the prop^ erty. Instead, huge tractors, the largest ever built. Will do all the work of plowing, seeding, and* harvesting. They will also do It niore quickly than has ever been done by the use of hofaes. As a matter of fact, without tractors it would be inpossibla to run-this big farm at all. The number of hotBes, or other animals, required would be prohibitive, to say nothing of the expense of feeding them and extra farm laborers to handle them The fartta has. been divided Into unit! qt,6,000 acres and to each unit has been assigned ono giant tractor, with a dozen held in general reserve In ciise'of accident. Baohvunlt also has. its own group of permanent buildings, lAodenxly equipped, and is under the direct charge of a competent farm manager. Under this manager is a taqeral foreman, who will see to hiring the help and> getting the work done. But over ail stands IMr. Campbell, who is .constantly on. the go from unit to unit, supervising the more important features of the edtire job. In the beginning Mr. Campbell figured ont the'whole thing; how much macftsiaarr would be :requii�d, and how much time should be allowed fur plowing, seeding, harvesting, and sc on. BhreiTthing Is done on a schedule and as this is dry farming land, no altowsBce has to be made for bad WMthar. The greater part of the plowing was d()tt6jtlai�t!Iair.� Some idea of the capac)^;of*the hHge tracto may he gain�itt?*f6B�iifie!;ifi6t"f^^^ fourteen, of th�iini^fpl6i^ed:v>nK>ra. than. 350 acres'^lri ii day,: nbiiiqi',ipt j'lvhlch had ever h^'o'""' ttS^.B broken by. ;t^ Before h^
