Just after aunsot one day, a call tor help was picked up by tho yuclic whIcJi immediately headed in the dlroctlon Indicated, diverting several stouraors from the danger zono as alio went along. Halt an hour later the look outs sighted the periscope of a submarine wliich was apparently proj.'ar-Ing to attack a merclmntraan approaching from tho opposite direction. The periscope was barely 150 toot from tho port bow of the yacht. Full speed was at once ordered and the yacht drove right over tlio submarine just as tho periscope disappeared. A dlBl;inct jar throughout the yacht pointed to tho probability that sho had rammed the enemy's conning tower. Two deplb- charges wore dropped almost immediately afterward. While bringing hla vessel around to l)asa over tho spot again tho captain ot the yacht observed a disturbance In tho water and as he approached there appeared in the centre ot tho disturbance a bubbling rush of water evidently caused by volumes oj nir escaping to the surfaco. A third depth charge was dropped in tho centre of tho disturbance which presently died away. .One survivor covered with a 'i Ick coating of oil was picked up.

Average Clip. The average clip per head, based on the total shipments, wa.'i in tho neighborhood ot 8 pounds. This is about one potmd per head heavier than usual showing that tlie clip is almost 15 per cent, better than that of a year ago. This is attributed to the tact that many ot the flockmastcis fed ihclr bands heavily last winter. Some ot them clipped aa high as ten pounds per head average, which is nearly 5t) por cent, better than a year ago. Mr. MacLeod also states that up to date more than 50,000 sheep, or one quarter of the total, have been shipped to ranges in the mountains west of Lethbrldgo, or to points north of Red Deer. Ho states that this number would have boon greatly exceeded had rates been in effect to points be-tAveen Calgary and Red Deer on the C. and E. line, as many ranchers wished to ship their sheep to tho mountains west ot the C. and E. where there are thousands ot square miles ot excellent summer range.

Lieut, Hurry I'^ill of Cowlchan iJay, 11, C, participated in sixty nlp^raids won nionlhs. V'"'' 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. 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 duty as a patriotic citizen to see that everybody obeys this order of the'Food Controller and uses the Vequlred 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, hi 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.......................................... 2Sc 9 Loaves for ........................ ...... $1.00 WHOLESALE 11 Loaves for........... ......... $1.00 N. / Schweitzer FredD.
