Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 9, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, AUGUST 9.1017 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HEP\LD PAGE FIVE) /ROYAL ]\ What the Press Agents Say AT THE EMPRESS Tho pictures of the Russian revolution attracted largo crowds to the Empress last night, iiml they will be Hhown again this evening. The big feature "Whose Wife", with Gail Kane as the star will also he shown again this evening. This is one of the best programs ever shown In the city. AT STARLAND For the last times tonight will bo shown the screen draniatiation of Wilkin Collins novel "Tho Woman in White" in six acts. As a story of mystery and thrilling incidents, it cannot be surpassed and we need say no more when we say the leading star is Miss Florence La Budio, tho star of tho "Million Dollar Mystery." In the same bill there is also the comedy you havo boon loSlcing for "Lonesome Luke, Plumber," in two reels! This is packed full of smiles and well satisfied a crowded houso at this popular theatre last night. AT THE ORPIIEUM Commencing with the regular matinee today the Harris and Proy company will present an entire change of programme. In Panama is the title of tho comedy to be presented for the last throe days of the present week. Some members of the company who have not yet made their appearance will bo seen to advantage in this merry musical mixture of laughLor und song. In Panama Is one of the biggest laughing conudies in the entire repertoire of the Harris and Proy players, and that is saying a lot. It is a scream from start to finish, with Murphy and Sweeny right on the job every minute of tho play. Sidesplitting situations follow one after another and are so knit together as to bring about a most pleasing climax in excellent style. The season's latest 8ot.E numbers are injected into the mixture and will tend to make it one of the season's best offerings. An entiro chango of pictures will also be presented. FRANK SUGGin IEL'lS of "OVER THE TOP The following very vivid description of an attack by the Canadians is given In a letter received by H. A. Suggit, of Coaldalo, from his brother Krnnk, who is at Vitny Ilidgo. The lotter follows: July 3rd, 1 hundred yards. Took our objective every time mid hold It. Captured a village. Tho enemy never even bothered to counter-attack, in fact I have never known him to | "eomo over" on us in a raid or any- j thing else, only 0110 time last winter when he tried to mako a raid on "H" Co.'y anil left most of Ills men hung on tho wire. Our casualties wore pro'tyy heavy, but there was a very large proportion slightly wounded. I never got into hand-to-linnd fighting, there was very littlo of it done. Thoy simply won't fight. Our artillery barrago was something terrible. It makes the blood rush to your head and you tremble like a leaf till the time comes when you climb over the top and Btart across to fritz. You don't then rush madly across the open with a yell, as 1 pictured an attack months ago. Tho ground is pitted with shell holes liko a honeycomb and so churned up that you sink to your ankles every s(ep. As you are loaded down with a bag of bombs, shovels, etc., or in any case machine gun paraphernalia, The beat time you can mako is littlo more than a walk, nnd you are doing your darn-dest, for comparative safety lies on your objective, that trench ahead of you. When you get there you get out your entrenching tool and dig, for our shells havo nearly levelled the tronch. You got a position where you have a good field to sweep with tho little Lewis. Then a wiring party comes up and puts the wire in front of the line, it it is dark enough to work in the open, and you sit there and wait for Fritz to come back, which he usually does. Meantime the sholls fnll all around nnd men pass up tho trench with a grin on, covered with blood, to the dressing station, which means Blighty, and a. rest from the war for a few weeks. It's a gay life, all right, judging from our own experience. Fritz has very little fight left in him, but Prussian militarism may die hard. importance of the water supply DEFINED.

Editor Hernld: Sir,-In your issuo of Saturdny you state, in connection with the sale of the Stovall corner, that "the second purchaser", snid to be Walter Ross, "is understood to be ready to make a fight for it." I am writing you to correct a mis-statement on your part and a wrong impression gained by the public. Mr. Ross was not the "second" purchaser of this property and to cloar myself and Mr. Ross from any wrong impression tho public may have gained I wish to state the following facts: 1, being a personal friend of Mrs. Sto-vall's, have been trying, ever since last winter, to dispose of this property, as other parties had boon endeavoring to sell it for the past ton years without effecting a sale. At the time the announcement was made in the Herald that the Boalim Motor Co. had purchased the property my deal was still oil. Later I received word from Mrs. Stovall that she would not accept the Baalim offer, as it was only an option, and that 1 was free to proceed with my own negotiations, which I did, with the result that Mr. Ross purchased the property, paid over his money and received-a properly signed agreement of sale from Mrs. Stovall. This was done through me, and there was not the slightest intention on my part or Mr. Ross' part to try to get tho property by any sharp practice, as convoyed by you in your statement that Mr. Ross was tho second purchaser. Ho was tho first purchaser and tho rightful owner of the property. I will state that MrB. Stovall's attorney, Mr. Hamilton Douglas, of Atlanta, Ga., and before whom all papers for tho transfer of property to Mr. Ross, were signed and approved, represented to Mrs. Stovall that it was necessary for him to go to Lethbridge to remove any fictitious claims that might bo made by other parties. Ho arrived hero July 26th and went to Calgary. Notwithstanding, Mrs. Stovall had received payment from Mr. Ross for the property and he fcirt the agreement duly signed by hor. As it stands It is a case for tho courts to decide. How-over, that the public may not gain a wrong Improssion, of the transaction in which Mr. Ross and myself took part I ask you to publish this. '  Yours truly, k Kstella Little. The Farmer's Advocate gives an extended reference In its most recent issuo to the water supply conference held nt Lcthbridge and makes the following editorial comment: "Wo ore not. giving away any sec-rots when we say that through tho southern and mlddb sections of Saskatchewan and Alberta the lack of satisfactory water supplies for tho house nnd for live stock Is a very serious drawback, not only affecting tho profitableness of the farm, but making the farm life less pleasant and attractive. "Wo know farms established for thirty years that draw water for house and stock at times as far as twelvo miles. It also seems a peculiar coincidence that it is over much 1 of the best land where it is impossible to secure wells that will yield water at nil or water of a quality fit for use in tho home. 'Tor years large sums of money havo been spent by farmers In an indiscriminate manner in sinking holes In the ground in these areas to no avail. They still draw the water in tanks for use for house and sometimes for stock. "In some districts this water scarcity has been overcome by digging out reservoirs and by damming ravines, but there has boon up to tho present no concrete or unified action to meeet this condition. Tho water convention, held recently in Lethbridge, and brought together through tho work of G. K. Mavnoch. president of the Lethbridge Hoard of Trade, is tho first effort towards systematizing research work in respect to securing water supplies in theso | waterless districts and gathering to-\ gother what data is already known. Through tho efforts of Mr! Marnoch there already has been a partial government geological survey of Southern Alberta to determine where water is likely to bo secured and at what depths, and also to map out theso areas where it is useless to undertako boring for water. Such a survey should bo extended through the whole of Western Canada, covering those areas where water is scarce. Such a survey would save farmers huge sums that are spent in boring dry holes down hundreds of feet. "Where it is impossible to secure well water of a satisfactory quality, what is to be done? In such district there should be a systematic work carried on towards conserving and storing up surface water in reservoirs made by dams in ravines or through excavating. This will give water for stock and, by suitable filtration, for the home also. Tanks should also be built to conserve rain water from buildings. The quantity of water that can bo stored up hi this manner from tho rain falling on house and barn ia no small item and must be taken into consideration. Chief of all the factors, though, to be considered in water supply for the farm house Is its purity. We know somewhat of the sickness that is caused by drinking impure water, particularly in relation to typhoid fever. This means that where surface water is used it must be purified. Filtration is the usual method. Filtration Is effective with a proper filtering plant, but it^-faay easily get out of order. The surest method of purifying the water is by distillation. While there are, as far as we know, no distillation plants on the market for farm home use, tho construction of such a plant Is very simple and, fol- lowing tho facts brought out at tho convention nt Lethbridge, there wilt llkoly be greater interns!. In thin manner of purifying water for the home, and manufacture of water stills will follow. "To satisfactorily meet tho situation there is- required roopenitivo work botweon governments, federal, provincial, nnd municipal, and also with and nmong farmers in these dry areas. Thon wo can lic-^ln to look for n measure of solution. In tho meantime credit is ' 230 13th Street North-One Door North of No. 2 Fire Hall Anchor-Donaldson Line Canadian Service Comfort and Economy.
