ALBERTA �"Itain and snow have been falling over the whole of Southern Alberta since about eight o'clock on Wednesday evening. Today light snow was falling during the morning, but towards noon it was considerably heavier and wetter. The total amount of precipitation is not large. Jt �'ill serve, however, to help germination, and it will have one other very benc-ficiil effect in that it will tend to keep the soil from drifting until aftfr the new grain is through the ground, after whic'n drifting of soil is not so likely to occur. . litports gathered by the Herald show that from Lethbridge east to Dunmore the precipitation lias been about ilio .-arae as at I^ethbridge. Along tlie Foremost line there was about two hours' steady rain last night and it i.= snov/ing today. .Xorth between Lethbridge and Calgary along both lines the precipitation has been HOmowliat iieavier than in Lethbridge. P'rom Pincher 'Creek west there are between four and six inches of snow over the fields. Seeding operations are at a standstill. The .-Vlderside and Macleod branches lead in seeding done with 80 per cent, of the wheal acreage already sown last Saturday night. Alderside ami .Mazepiia reported 100 per cent wheal seeding finished. AVest of Macleod about .')0 per cent" of the seeding is done. On the Cardston branch the percentage is not ro large, only ZTj por ('tint having been finished last Saturday. On the (;outts branch the figures are about lhe_ same. The Ta-ber branch shows only 2.") per cent seeded, while on the Foremost line better progress has been made, with 4(j i,er cent of the wheat in the ground. This is a great advance over progress last year at this time, when seeding was only just getting pro-pei-ly .starCfid during the third week of April. The greatest complaint the farmers have had this spring la the drifting of the soil which this storm will end. Fire which broke out in the blacksmith's shop of ftomeo Dagenais, at Oner Lake, eighteen ipflea from Br)'-son, at noon yesterday, destroyed the block ov,-ned by Mrs. Dagenais, and conl,?.ininK a store, boarding-liouse and post office. The decision of the United States government to take over the raw wool in tliat couutry at the i)rice which pre-! ^ailed at the end of last July is creating great interest among the sheepmen of Southern Alberta, as it Is thought this action south of the line may be the prelude to similar action in Canada. There is however, so far as the Herald can learn, no disposition on the part of the members of the Southent Alberta Wool Growers Association to' find fault vvitli the government even if the clip is taken over at a fixed price, for during the national conference of v.ool men at Toronto last winter it was decided to offer the 1918 clip to the government at the price received last year. Great Falls papers received in the city today indicate that the fixed price in the U. S. will be in the neighborhood of 60 cents a pound. The local assoc-fation received an average price of about 62 1-2 cents last year. It is felt that there is no need for hurry in Canada even if government action is contemplated as the wool harvest does ijot start until after June 1st. . � ' nnnnnnnnnnnannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn ni-�-in n n n n In n n n; n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n a: 1 iHIS is the age of Specialismr The nation-wide superiority of Fit-Reform Clothing is due to the fact that it is the work of specialists.
