Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 9, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta ALL THE LOCAL NEWS WHERE YOU EXPECT IT THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD THE HERALD'S PAGE OP LIVE LOCAL NEWS' MONDAY, AUGUST 9, 1920 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, PAGE The Rhyming Optimist (By Al'lne Michael's.) Aleleorological Keport Shows That Rain During Month Was.Patchy Following Is the Alberta ther report (or July' Issued from Ed- monton by authority of the Dominion director of Meteorological services: Throughout the province July, can best be as a lino month. Areas which were lett dry from June ivore refreshed with rains early In July anil the sunsblno throughout the mouth v.-ell up to a high average. Thunderstorms, A natural accompani- ment .weather, were not in- frequent and were accompanied hy hall in some cases. The damage done by the hail- is fortunately coufined to srjiall areas and seldom has led to to- tal loss. Frost has only been reported say that inspiration shovel the painter's brush along, that It's what the- poat uses when he starts to sing a song; that he simply turns a faucet sod the words come "pouring out, all that be any need of, lu a wordy waterspout. They remark that inspiration tMches fellows how to play on the food old ukelele In the jinost astoondlns.jrarv-.They do not ae9d any practice, any work, to that old Is beloved ty every .shirk.' Always must wait his pleasa re, and "for houra'th'ey sit around when they Bay Old Inspiration hasn't showed up oh the ground. 'Yet these fellows who keep waiting on this inspiration chap often find that they are losing In the race, lap by lap. And they (ear that he has left them, plainly speaking, up a tree, but they hover once have figur? cd that they might get lip to see. For the. fact is, inspiration Is not very often found on the premises of fel lows who are prone'to loaf around. It Is pretty nearly certain that the spot where he. hangs out. will be held down by a chappie that's a good, hard- from one station so far. that is one at. working scout. Inspiration-is most a high altitude and no damage Is re- corded. In the south (he nionlh opened with wet weather in fairly large quantities. the fifth this moisture spread to northern Alberta :nul lasted lor several days. A hot spoil than set In which, was broken rarely by scattered .tbandersbowere. Tin's hot spell seems to have reached its: climax about the 17th when.high temperatures; .'wers quite general, reaching Hat. The hiiianci: of the month was warni but seldom unpleasantly hot and. showers became more frequent and of a heav- ier, nature. The total precipitation varied con- sideralily according to the district and Ihro'ueLjput the province c-an best be described ;by.tho word The southern foothills seem to .have had nhn'ost four Inches'during the month. This dwindles to an .average of an inch and a half to two inches in the eastern, portions. The general total would "be from two and a half to three inches. In northern Alberta the total may be less but with the heavy raina of June is quite, sufficient.' The sunshine records throughout the country indicate a very high per- centage of the total possible amount one point recording S3% of the total possible. The lowest record is nearly 72% of the total possible. have moderate. High ..wind .velocities'1: were'' B'ehWm reached except in; squalls before rain- storms. A .very high .wind WES re- corded at Medicine, Hat on the 22nd which-, was-apparently local aud very welcome; but for him no worker waits, for "most every one who knows him says he Joys in breaking dates. Maybe sometimes inspiration puts the colors on the brush, but a lot ot all such chatter can' be safely labelled temporary. The warm.dp Uthbridge Aircrafts Will Use It for Work Throughout the District The Ixithbridge Alrcratts, Limited, are 'already to break into a new field, hat of photographing. Their camera arrived yesterday and they two largo contracts to fulfil -at once. The Noble are again In the, lead, having.arranged for com- plete photographs of their world fara- ous farms. The other contract is In connection with the government Irri- gation iiirvey work. The camera IB the regulation aero- plane machine used for map work. It carries sixteen plates which are snap- ped and Blacked by a lever worked ay observer, The lente takes In a 6 in. by.G in. picture, but the plates themselves are 4 in. by 5 in. so that there are no dim edges Grasshopper Situation on the plates proper. The operator pulls the lever at about ten to fifteen second Intervals, and the plates being numbered from one to sixteen and it being possible to carry several loads of 15 plates at s. time a complete picture of any given area may be made. By trimming and fitting, a whole town may' be pieced, together, and then If desired enlarged so that every detail can be made' to stand out. The'possibilities of this branch of aircraft work are limitless. The field is untouched and it Is work for which the demand will be increasing. The big ranch owner, the farmer or 'any one interested in buying or sell- ing land, will call In tho air photo- grapher before he starts on his cam- paign. It will he but a matter of when a real estate dealer will be show- ing his prospective customers his ac- tual photographs ot the whole place of land that he has for sale. From these, selections can be made and lost time travelling to show land will be minimized. Every town will havo for sale photos of the whole burg at one shot. which they will never forget. They The government already Is pressing spells gave grasshop- u'crs some advantage In the south but were fought with a considerable of success, farmers taking full v-ausJirilage of the means provided by Dominion and Provincial govern- mVnts.' At the close of tho nionlh the first crop ot.alfalfa is practically complet- ed-with good results. Haying is g'eii- era! all over.' The progress of grains varies -considerably Irom heading to coloring, according to the area. All reports are optimistic- the least so at least looking -forward with confidence a good average crop.

In Bellevue' one minute- 'after the shooting ended, and wero iu their a. few feet of the bandit Akroff as he gasped his last. The party was composed of David Donald, city Mrs.'-Donald, Miss Gerber, who. has cha.rge of. the children's playgrounds here, and Miss Taborr of-'Medicifc, Hstrhad Elko on a fishing trip. They turning to Le'thbridge and rounded the road Into the.mairi street of Bello- vue just as the last shots were lircd. They proceeded down'the ..street a short distance when '.someone stopped them. They thought there, was a gen- eral hold-up of the-tpwh. Oh'the side- walk slumped down against'the wall of a building only 'a'- few, .feet from hem Akroff was breathing his last. Some one was supporting his head, >ut tho bandit died' without speaking i word..The whole town was In an uproar in the' excitement of looking after the remains of two dead constables, and the (lead bandit and organizing a posse ;to follow BassofT. Mr.' Donald left Bellevue a few minutes afterwards, and- proceeded homewards. On his way, he saw some- thing on the outskirts of Bellevue, which he has reported to.the police and which may have Home bearing on tho case. This Information he can- not Kive for publication as It may bo clue which will help in landing Bassoff. The ladles of tho party say they will repiember the experience the rest of their lives. It was a real touch of the west at its wildest, !t la Improbable that very much more bait will be used for grasshop- pers this aeason. All of the most de- structive species have been flying for more than two weeks, and are now be- coming generally scattered through the fields.' Such damage as they may now be doing Is not very evident. If the season remains dry until harvest there may he a little feeding on tho hfiRds, In addition to some beheading of wheat. This danger has been large- ly reduced throughout the Infested ter- ritory by the excellent work that has done by. the. majority of farmers in killing off the young hoppurs, In anil around their fields, thereby not only saving their own crops, but also .reducing the number of winged speci- mens that now scattering uniform- ly throughout the country. There aro neglected fields, however, in which the hoppers hare removed every blade from the plants, (eaving only the straw and the head. It Is impossible' for this grain to fill.. Nearly all ot this dariiage was done by young hoppers, before they had their wings, and it cculfl have hceh avoided by tho appli- cation ot a little itolson to the edges of the field early in the season. Some three to four hundred tons of poison- ed bait has been used in Southern Alberta this summer, and It is. prob- able, that every handful 61 this has killed at least 50 grasshoppers. In some of the early poisoning of young hoppers, they were still'crowded together on the headlands, we know that a single handful has killed over of them. There are still, however, far more hoppers In many'dlslricts than there were this time last year, and Wo do not see any very definite prospects ot their numbers being reduced it the season remains dry, and conditions for hatching are favorable nest spring. Some valuable enemies of the grass- hopper are increasing in numbers. Many complaints have been received regarding a beautiful purple and green beetle'that has beeu found devouring beans; and caraganas. Harmful as the Western Blister beetle is in gardens, it, like the Heal Webworm, probabiy doea far more good.than harm, for the grub of this Insect feeds entirely upon grasshopper eggs!

Camera men, amateurs and professional will be Interested in this magnificent instrument also. until These will remain in "the soil next spring, and since, as we heve already stated, hoppers are more numerous than they were last year; we must be prepared to face an out- break next year that may be more serious than the present one, and which.will probably cover much ter- ritory that has escaped infestation tula All farmers living iu dis- tricts bordering on those that have suffered this will be advised to take advantage of the experience that has been gained in these Infested dis- tricts. It has been demonstrated this summer that In Alberta, as elsewhere, tho farmer who is'on the lookout for the breeding places of grasshoppers, and who treats these before the hop- pers spread from them into the ad- joining iielde, has little to fear either from the expense of control measures, or from damago to his crops, though these'may both he considerably In- creased if bio "neighbors are not doing their share In holding down the post on adjoining fields. On the other hand there are farmers who realize that they have lost a large percentage of their crops because they did not prac- tise control measures sufficiently early In the season. B. H.

MAMaCrop f Record Likely Te Some Farmers Report Three Tons to the Acre in the First Culling When the returns are all In, it may bo fouud that tho 1520 alfalfa cron In Ihe Coilclalc-Rayiuoud-Magrath Irriga- tion district will beat the 1S19 crop, which was the record for the district up to that lime. According to Sam G. Tortcr. super- intendent ol tho district, several far- mers are reporting three tons aero In their first cutting, while many report a heavier yield than last year. There aro In all about 12.000' acres under alfalfa aud the firlt .'cutting will probably total almost tons. Tho first cut was about ten day's or two weeks later than last year, but Is a better quality of hay.

Their holiday was cut short thereby-. Last week the boys decided to lake- a jitney and go tamping up at Bnnals. They made camp on'Tuesday; and on Wednesday afternoon they went doWn to the V i slide for the purpose nf cliffiMii; it. mads the c'.'inh, and came back to their car ueir eastern end ot Uti> slide late in the evening. It was about eleven o'clock when they got jr. the car to'stuift to csmp. They'had gone only a shoit distance when they were-stopped by three men, who ordered them to throw up their hands. One ot the holdups pulled a gun, and tho boys were searched. Between them they deliver- ed up ?14 to 'the trio who then told them to heat it. The .boys went to Bel lev ue to report.the case the I police, but owing to the fact that the hunt for the' bandits was on, there was no one at police headquarters. The campers waited for about an hour, hut no one showing up they decided that probably there wasn't much to it after all and went back to .camp.." Now that such sensational develop- ments, have the boys seem quite certain that they irrigation farmers can do to get this crop off before the grain harvest be- gins.
