Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 10, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, ATIGUST 10, 1917 THE LET1IBRIDCF. DAILY HERALD Rid the Skin of disfiguring blemish** fcy quickly purifying the blood, improving tlie circulation, and r* gut axing the habits with BEEOUN'S PIUS LnrtMl Sti� mf Amr MmNcEiw In �h* WarU. 14 ninwWn, In bna. 2Se- CARDSTON (l''i'cim Our Own Cnrrcxpomlpnl) CnvdHton, August 8-This dlHtrfct received it flue local /tthowor on Krl-dny uflernoon, tho extent wnH not �h Kruat na denorved aw only tho district frniu Olonwood south and from I.eav-Jlt oust rcoulvwl much rain. Howovor, tin; Cnrdston gardens and fields surrounding havo rocoivod a Rood drenching and will be greatly hunofittcd. Grain has boon doing remarkably veil despite tho continued dry weather arid the liny harvest lins gone forward rnpidly, Tlio crop is lighter than usual htit will be sufficient for nil local requirements and possibly a ll(tlo for sliinmont. Tho excursion lo tlio Demonstration Farm last Tuesday was not well attended by llio people of the south line and there Is a reason. Tho excursion was not well advertised in the Cards,ton district or there would have been many more In attendance.' There organizations of the l'. F. A. at TayloLvillo, Woolford, Aetna, Cnrdston, O'enwood and Hill Spring, and had the officers of these locals boon notified concerning it, would have been a local interest created resulting in many men attending. Some parties went by auto from this district, but few by train. On ringing up the above points your norrosponddnt found that none of them knew of tho excursion ns announced for July :!lst. All of them expressed regret that Information had not been earlier as despite haying operations, many would hav*- taken the day for such a trip at. the very favofublo rate given by the railroads. �J,et us have nilolbcr excursion next year and giv�>. us a better chance to advertise ij and results will bo worth whi^jj. Those who attended at Clares-holm are loud in their praises of tho line treatment accorded all and the many items of valuable information received by them from tho farm staff. Tho Liberal call, for a meeting to send delegates to the big convention was fairly well attended though tho outside districts were not well represented. .Mr. J. A. Hammer, chairman of tho district, presided. The delegates named wore K. N. Barker, 11. 11. Jirown, n. A. Pilling and I'\ \V. Atkins, with h. Williams, ('. \V. Pickup and John Holmes ns alternates. Tho delegates were all 'on hand Saturday morning and took the train for Winnipeg. Our provincial member, Mr. Martin Woolf, will lead tile delegation. It. is a great occasion and we trust our representatives will be equal to It. - TURKS IN BAD PLIGHT The Turkish soldiers In Anatolia are �aid to be in a bad plight. They are miscellaneously armed -with Mausers, Martinis and almost any available kind of rifles, and are commanded by Gorman non-commissioned officers whoso rule is Biieh as to provide an irritation that cannot be disguised or concealed. The situation is the worse for the fact that the fare of the troops is getting steadily worse. Meat, which once was plentiful and cheap Is now almost unobtainable, because the Germans are said to have sent away everything they could lay hands on, even to dead horses. EVIDENCE STILL NOT FORTHCOMING Ottawa, Aug. 8.-Sir Wilfrid Lnur-lor In the commons today again drew the attention of tho prime minister to the fact that the evidence upon which tho MeLcod-Tellier commission based Its report had no*, yet been laid on the table. Sir Itohort Borden said tho matter wos in the hands of the minister of Justice. Sir. Doherty wag hot. present. V. )!. Oarvell asked If It was possible for tlio minister of finance to give a statement,to the public as to the details of the taxation under the business profits tax. He said he had given the minister of _ finance the names of fotir or five New firtmswlclt companies which had mado large profits and he desired to know If they had paid a fair tax. He had been given some private Information,-but this was of no public value. The matter, he said, was of so much itnportanoe (hat the house was entitled' to a straight declaration, from the government regarding what was expected from this tax. -Sir Thomas White replied that-when the business profits tux was under consideration in 11*16, the statement, was made that return* would be made provided a resolution was passed providing for such information, but It was thought inadvisable that details of the private-business.of ii firm fhnuld be made publkv- Bo far did- that obtain that a clause was Inserted In tho act providing for a penalty upon any official giving Information regarding tho prlvato bun'./tcaH of taxpayers. Ho did not desire '.hut the administration of the act should exempt from public criticism, but ho hhd come to the conclusion, that,if a member desired detailed iniornintlon he ought to move in tho house for it and should give the grounds upon which he desired iho information. It was important to 1 firms that the details of their private business should not be made public to their competitors. This was the practice in Great Britain. Mr. Carvell asked if a member could use the information given him. Sir Thomas said he could use such information consistently with his responsibilities as a member of parliament. The house then went into commit-too on the resolution to nationalize tho Canadian Northern, and give fin-uncial assistance to tho extent of seven and a half millions to the Grand Trunk Pacifio. 24,000,000 MEN FIGHTING Combatants Would Take Fortnight to Pass Given Point Ten Abreast The fighting armies of Die belligerents today, according to Sir William Tlobortson, number twenty-four millions of men. Such a figure as this is impossible of realization, but a few familiar comparisons may help tho public to grasp what It means. Suffereo From Bacuohe Rheubatiji, Dropst. Dtar Mr. Editor-I wish to tell ytm I  recent experience I had. when snf-faring from backache, weak back, rheo-niatiiui, dropsy, and congestion of the kidneys.

This medicine acted upon me in a '.vo'iderful manner. 1 never have taken any medicine so helpful in such quick time. I do wish anyone in need of such a remedy would give it a trial. (Signed) ii. 11.

"When tho bayonet is plunged into a soldier," it says, ''the heat of tho body will melt tho capsule and relonso its healing contents, the anaesthetic deadening tho wounded man's pain, the antiseptic preventing infection, and tho gelatin stopping the How of blood.
