Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 10, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta \ / WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10, 1918 THE iJITHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE FIVE Canadians Will Exact a Terrible toll from Huns i (fly the Canadian Overseas Correspondent i.

'Canada with its liard won Vfmy ItMge hehinti it waits for Ccnnany to deliver a front attack. YesLerdr.y tifterrloon and evening and this morning our guns have an-wivered those of the enemy; Throughout the ;irea from tho Searpe to Kou-ehez villages have known again tho Wood price of Wattle:' Women and children are evacuating loved homes. Death "lias visited many: War broods m-or flic ridge. From Lens to Arras ruin is being added to ruin. Smoky by day, rimmed in fire by night, our old battle wounds live agaiiii Constant crumping of shells in Arras, Ijlevin, Acouero Ivere.s and other big and little centres is answered by the roar of our suns, sweeping the enemy front, assembly and soar areas. Our men wait In trenches without fear for the future. Rvcrywhcre there is confidence in the knowledge that If the enemy attacks our heights his price for that attack will be terrible. The temper of our forces is magnificent. It found repeated expression yesterday. At one point two Canadian parties raided enemy lines. The find, advancing after urtillory barrage, found the enemy outpost line deserted. It pushed on to the front lino and with no better success, only two of the enemy being found. They resisted and were killed. The other party, in a stealthy raid, found tho oneniy In some strength and killed five and captured one. Later in the afterrioon the Canadians took three more prisoners. Early this afternoon under the cover of an artillery barrage twp more raids were carried out against tho enemy. One raiding party had no luck, but. the other, twenty-five strong took no fewer than ten prisoners. 1 says an Office A most remarkable and interesting human document, in the shape of a Jotter from a former hospital worker behind tho French lines lias been received by Madame Olga Petrova.

The p.bsoiute, mobility of the Fordson Is the big feature which impressed itself on thoso witnessing the demonstration. The fact that it did as high a;: seven- miles an hour at high speed in going from one spot, to another, thus putting It in the class with horses for road work has already determined many farmers to put one of the little machines on order. Do Work of Four Hcrsvs In putting out the Fordson, all that the makers, Henry Ford and Son, claim for it is that, it will do the work of four horses. But that it will do the work of a regular six horse plow team was demonstrated today in the breaking demonstration. It. is capable of handling two fourteen inch plows on virgin prairie and doing it at a speed of 2% miles per hour or' even better. It was doing .this work today, and making an excellent job of it. To 'give spectators a line on the speed it i-.vill develop it was put to" work dragging four weighted sections of drag harrow on the golf course, and was working almost twice the speed horses would do tho same work.

It bums kerosene, but for cold mornings it has a gasoline arrangement for easy starting. From two to two and one-half gallons of kerosene are consumed in ploughing an acre and one quart of lubricating oil Is also needed. The cost is less than tho price of a bushel ot oats at present prices. 'rhe machine in ploughing has a specially constructed Oliver plough with two fourteen inch/bottoms, and working t}ie ordinary day will aver-, age eight acres. It wjll handle other farm machinery equally as well. The Fordson demonstrator will be kept at the Ford Oarage and Manager Virtue .will be glad at any time to demonstrate it to intending purchasers. Orders, however^ must be sent to the department of agriculture at Edmonton accompanied by the cash, and shipment will be made direct, in turn j 'as the orders are received. Sixty machines are now on the way to tho prairie provinces. Experts Here W. T. Kogers, of Regina, a Ford expert and T. E. McGinnis are here handling the demonstration, having been appointed by the Food Control Board for that Purpose. A. C. Hart, of the Oliver Plow Works is accompanying them as plow expert during the demonstrations. "It is a dandy little machine, and I would like to get one for the city street work." said Commissioner Orace to the Herald. "The speed the^ can develop is one of the blg^featuresn for what we require." The machine has three Bpeede forward, low at about 114 miles an hour, intermediate at about 2v2. and high at fl miles. It also has a reverse speed. Mr. Rogers suggests that the demonstrations in future should be made profitable by using the outfit to plow larger garden tracts within tho city and this 'will probably be the course followed.

With his charming little loading lady, .Molly Malone, and his clever young director, .Jack Ford, he has produced another of these red-blooded tales of the West, which is called "Bucking Broadway," and which- will be the offering at Starland tonight, and tomorrow. It tells tho story of a puncher who rescues iiis sweetheart, from tho villain in a single-handed f^ght against great odds. This Homeric conflict, in which the hero is later joined by some of his cowboy friends. takes place in a most, original environment -a roof garden of a fashionable hotel. The tremendous fight, which is staged among little tallies, chairs, supper dishes and champagne buckets, is one of tile most thrilling affairs which lias ever been photographed, and the result is held in suspense until the very last moment.  i is as clever and entertaining as ever. I'.illee O'N'eil is still the show. Tho whole company of girls have a I (dean refreshing stage appearance, the costumes are spotless, and colorful, and the play is enhanced with a pretty stage setting. The Bostonians will appear again at the .Majestic tonight, and will doubtless draw a large audience on the sheer merit of their performance last night. 1 ily lur.tses.

Got the genuine made by "California Fig Syruli Com uaiiy.''-Advertisement. Toronto, April 10.-That 98 per cent, of the stock of the C. N. H. has been transferred to and vested in the Dominion government and that the government controls the road, was stated by, F. H. Phippen. K.C.. at this morn: ing's session of the' C.N.R. arbitration board. Sir William Meredith, chairman, pointed out that it. might make an Important difference if it was conceded that the go/ernment owned the road as the Ontario land grant through the clay belt was upon terms which would cause it to be forfeited if the railway came into the hands of tho government. The chairman commented on the fact that there was an increase of nearly a million dollars in the monthly operating expenses of the road as submitted by Air. Phippen. The figures which had been much wanted by Mr. Tilley, chief goverrr-ment counsel, yesterday were forthcoming this morning and were filed as exhibits. Carlos Hays, general manager of the Canadian Government Railways eastern Hues, used the figures to illustrate-the danger of relying too strongly on bright prospects. The figures submitted were signed by D. B. Hanna and bore tho explanation that tho loss in operating was due to severe snow storms and tint excessive cost of locomotive equipment and mataerials. "There seems to be no end to the demand of labor organization," remarked Mr. Hays while discusBing the increased cost of supplies. Mr. Nesbitt: "What will happen after the war .with regard to labor?" Mr. Hays: "I would not like to predict." - * lice. ?

This was amply demonstrated last night at the Majestic when the Famous" Bostonians returned for their annual vi3it to Lethoridge, Their offering this season is styled, "The Girl from Over There." but it must frankly be said that the title is somewhat misleading. There is not the least vestige of anything military about the play.
