Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 1, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta Of Inters to the Fanner CANADIAN SEED GROWERS.

Tlx; matter of fkikl coiiv-Jpetftions and the utility of such n ewtitig a giwtcr interest in bettor 'crops was discussed and the follow-l>g rosolu't'ion was passt*d, viz.:- ''That tlle Council approves of the , rinciple of holding field competit -i>n8 of crops commends the notion of I hose agricultural societies which liave arranged for such competitions ns being one of the exoellent moons far encouraging the Improvement of rops. It wxis also decid�d to pre -J ore a collection of special selections to be placed on exhibition at the flbminion K-xhibition to Im h>>ld at horbrooke.

In view of the virulence of the dy pest this season reported from so mony districts, the following obser -vations from the Nor'weat Farmer ore seasonable ond necessary. "With the numlwr of sprays, emulsions and various other preparations ropulsivc to the common littip black flics that swamv on cattle, there is Very little excuse for the man who leaves his stock unprotected. Reference of course is made to the average farmer's herd, it being impraoticablc however ^sirable rt OMght be, to �reat cattle on the range or in a large pasture, which hardly come near a corral or a stable all sumoner. The question as to whether it will poy to protect the onimals, where sonic preparation may be regularly applied, is readily nnswvred in the afilrmative by noting the average difference, .9oy for one week, between two bunches of cows, one of which has been given prott>stion and the other has not. The value of protection is probably most marked in the cose of the dairy hei-d, n-fiich, if she expends her nervous energy in fighting (ties will not be able to nse it in making milk. Because the beeT ani -ma I is not so high strung and so sensitive, the benefits of protecting ft agtt'inst flies are perhaps not so strongly marked; it is also true tlwrt we cannot judge' of the loss of flesh in a beef beast, duo to the tonnents of flies, as can of the decreased milk-flow of a dairy cow from the hiiitif!! eaum, tioitcti'r, tfld bcof ftnlnt-al lays on flesh as a r'csult df the food it ����, )h�t �s the dairy cow givesmilk as a result of the same action, and it is h reasonable conclusion that what will lessen the milk-flow in one ca.se, will als�o lessen the amount of flesh laid on in the other. A spray recommended by the Xor'-w(>st farmer is: Ono gallon of fish oil; one pint of cool oil and two ounces of crude corlx>lic acid, mixed in this antount or in this proportion as roituired. It can be handily applied from a little pa'il by the use ot a small whtto-wa^ brush, nndthough r�iuiring monc- time than spraying, it needs only to lie repeated two or thm; times a week. THE USES OF CONCRETE. Concrete as a substitute for timber in building is making rapid and gratifying progress. The material is toeing put to new uses from day to day. The latest advance noted is a patented concrete door of which it is said: "The 'body of the door is nmdc ot finely woven wire mesh suited in size o'ml strength to the purpose for which the door is to be used. Over this the concrete 'is poured, and the door when moulded and dried can bo smoothed off like �vood. The doors can be staiined any color." The door is not on the market yet and it will doubtless be a long tinw before it or any other sinnilnr door will be in sufficient supply to mi�t the denmnd for H. Another innovation is,the concrete shingle; about it we again quote: "These shittgles are only a little heavier than slate, and not much more expensive than those of the best wood. They are practicoUy in-destruottblc, and in tho end miich cheaper than shingles of any other nwteriair They may be mode in a variety ot designs, are neinf breed with metal skeletons, which terminate in loops at the edges for nailing to the roof. The shingles become more durable with exposure to the weather." These examples serve to iwlicate the vast variety of uses this wonderful material may be put to in addition to t'he other and heavier uses with which all are familiar. The situation is added evidence of the a>bility of mother earth to re -spond to every dcm�nd made upon her to supply the needs of her ehtl -dred. As one necessary reaouroe tails either new sources of supply ore found or a substitute is evolved; this has stood in evidence of our good mother's beneflcence ever since she has had human chiWren to cai\. for, and there seems to be little dnn-Ber of exhausting her goodness or her wealth-^Farm, Stock and 'Home. lONARD's LiNnraaiT COU>S, Ac. CURES LAUOIEM fltE IDOL t�* fHH SATIOiV. .(Momi�al Witness.) "Ijauriof. the idol of the nation," is the oppropriu'te heading uiKter which o Ik- soon iv|iea't�d, miless in his iwrsofv. lOntfausiasni, like �a wind, nay, lilvo n tornado, has swept thru crowd ailor crowd, nil the way from Quoliec lo Montivnl �nd Ottawa; theix! huve been triumphant arches, gorgeous ligirts and liunting, bands and syrens and crowds in thousands. No inj\n so tar in this countr>' hn.s got so near to the hearts of tho people as has Wilfrid Laurier, nnil it would not be easy to find a parallel elsewhere. Sir John Mnodonald, our grontcst fig;ure in the past, was the Klol iti'ther of a vwrty than of n nation. Gladstone was well-l�lovcd, but he was finely hated too; Lord Denconsficltl, afUn- the Ucrlin Con-gnass', came home with 'Peace wit.h Honor," sotting one half of the English people itelirous v ith joy nn�l the other hal,f wiki with rage or scorn; but nobody hates Sir Wilfrid, no one begrudges him his groat European triumph. Even those who professmost to di.9trust and dislike hie policy and some of his colleagues, assure us that for Sir Wilcrld personally they have the highest admiration. This is naturall.v accounted for by his innate courtesy and the spirit of conciliation fhnt has dominated his policy where the two races are conceni-M and tt'hich has overflowed, as' it wcixi, into tho field of politics. Add to this that Sir Wilfrid is easily tho mo.^t knightly figure upon the stogc of ou life to-day and his universal popularity is easily accounted for. So, as tho 'Prossc' expresses it, it is a country not a jiarty which cx-prusses 'the nirdst cordial and thomost onthu.'iiastic of welcomes to the chief of the state. We would rather hear a man t^^ll a "fake " animal story than tc soo him kill, an animal in mi^re want.one.4s. Every once in a while we meet n man who has been ruined by success. And now and then we meet a man who has won by failure. STRAYED. . Strayed from lethbrtdge, heavy dark bay mare, branded R left shoul S-7' der. 2 left thigh.
