ThOBO who hnvn not yet secured tlioir tlokKiB for Iho Chaiitauqua hore next wook, had bottor do ho Kb soon lis posBlblo. TIiIh is a wnrning to thcao wlio do not wish to bn loft out In the rnid next wetik. without a Heason ticket, or perhops without evon nn opportunity of ePttlng Into the big tout nt all. This Is the reason. This year's i)ro-gram 1h no per cnit. better ihiiu last year and ovory town in the country wbtcli la privllogfld to have Cliuiilau-qua thiH your 1b going wildly enthuH-laBtlc over the artlalH. Chautauqua does not merely moan liatunins to a lecturer for an hour or more. It also moans the beBt ot inuBic and enter-tttlnment Intermingled with the led-nrern. And eyon the lecturorn are of the highest order, bo that no one will bu disappointed who attendn Leth-bridge Chautauqua next week, In the big tent, capacity 1400 ,whlch 1h to be located on Seventh street JuHt north oC the poHt office. 13q on hand, (lot the Chautauqua habit. to the i:nnimlllee of the cabinet and will Investigate labor condlllonH gnu-orally throughout the Dominion. Tills was not Mr. Wiittcr's flr.^t trip to IjOlhbrldgo, having vlKlted the city four .venrs ago but lie liiid little time to remain here ho tliiit. he illd not meet any of the locul labor leaders. iUSIRIAL UNREST WILL NOT CEASE UNllLPRICESFI)(EO,SAYSIC.mERS That the Indualrlal unrest Bweeplng over Canada will never cease until something sorlotiB is dono In the way of prieo-flxing in connection with the noc6B3llleB of life is the opinion of President J. C. W'utters. of the Trades and Labor CongrcHs of Canada who was in the city for a few lioura this niornflng r;ji hfi.way through from Ottawa to Denver where he will bo a delegate from Canadian labor to the convention of the Western Federation ot Minora next week. Interviewed by the Herald for a few minutes before the train loft. Mr. Walters declared that Indtistrlal peace rests on a foundation of living coats, iind so long us those coats keei) mounting there is liound to be a demand for higher wages to offset them. THE COOLEST SPOT IN H LETHBRIDGE HENDERSON LAKE____ PAVILION . SWIMMING AND BOATING ice Cream Parlor and All Kinds of Soft Drinks Come and Enjoy the Hot Summer Evenings at "The Lake." PUICLO AGAIN OCT. 2] Thin is Definite Inforniiition Received By C. P. K. Offices Here "Labor cannot be blamed tor taking this stand" he said, "but It necessarily creatofl a great deal ot trouble In the labor world, and strikes result. Two years ago I advocated a scheme of prlco-llxlng for Canada and gained considerable 111 repute for rayBcU because ot the stand I took ut that time, but 1 am more convinced than ever that 1 waB right then and am still right. I asked the government to put at the head of the department such a man as Dr. HobertBon, a scientific agriculturist who is now doing good work for til.? allies, and have hlra start at a fixed point. The price ot what the farmers raise could be set to give them n good margin ot profit just as the price ot wheat has been set. Tranaportation costs could then bo figured and sot, and from ihls the price of comniodltlcH of life to lh(i,deal-ers could be set. Thus we would arrive at a standard for living costs, and from that point It \h but a step to a standard of wages. As it Is now everything is haphazard, a climbing spiral with no end in sight. Higher wages are paid one branch of labor, and living costs are consequently alTectod in all branches, producing unrest. "It is of no use to say that it cannot be done. It lias been done to a great extent in Great Dritain, and more so in the United States than in Canada. I admit that it is a big problem but it Is one that should be tackled it Canada is to keep her mind on- the winning of the war more than on internal problems which cause unrest and lake our minds off the war to that extent." Mr. Walters is one of Iho two repre aontalives ot labor on the new sub committee on reconstruction, the personnel of which was announced by the press yesterday. He states tha"t ''the new committee is merely advisory Tliat Canada will suspend daytight saving on Sunday, Oct. 27 Is the dclin-ito information received by the local oIllcGB ot the C.P.R. llirough an order from the Hoard ot Hallway commissioners. DayKglit aavlng in the Ifnit-ed Stales will cease tor the year on the same date. There Is considerable difference of oiMnlon as to tlie advantages ot the measure. People with large families still complain that it Is imposslbli^ to get the youngsters to bed early eno\igh in Iho evening to bo able to rise early in the morning. The farmers ot the dlislrlct go by the s\in, and use llic old time nlmoHl exclusively. But the amateur gardeners have found ii a bonellt, and Lethbrldgo has grown more garden truck this year than ever In its history. Goiters and other sport-lovers also swear by daylieht saving, while the electric light companies condemn It because of the great reduction in the amount of current consumed.

SHERLOCK BUIU)ING A Statement to Our Customers from the Bakers of Lethbridge We are now compelled by the Food Controller to use 10% of Substitutes in all our bread and as soon as the supply of substitutes is available this percentage will be increased to 20%. The use of substitutes by the bakers is a new thing and requires considerable experimenting to find out the best method of using them, and also to find the best substitute to use. We are improving our goods all the time and today the bakers of Lethbridge are turning out a good loaf of bread, sweet, clean, nutritious and palatable. ' i These substitutes cost us considerably, more than Government Standard White Flour. The Food Controller in ordering their use was not thinking of saving money, his only idea is to save wheat flour so that all the Allies may have enough to go> round. It is your duly as a patriotic citizen to see that e>jerybody obeys this order of the Food Controller and uses the required amount of substitute in their bread whether it is bakery-made, home-made or Chinese-made. The cost of doing business is rising higher all the time. Horse feed is away up, wages are going up, freight rates are up 20%, shortening, sugar, malt are all up in price and there will be another raise in coal soon. In view of these facts we can no longer sell bread at the same price as we have been doing so that starting on Monday, August 12th, the price of bread in Lethbridge will be as follows: RETAIL 1 Loaf.......................................... 15c 2 Loaves................. ......... ............. 25c 9 Loaves for.................................... $1.00 WHOLESALE 11 Loaves for..............---- ............ $1.00 N. /.
