FORD TRUCKS A SAVING TO FARMERS The motoi .driven truck can work constantly at maximum load under the burning summer sun, or in the coldest weather. Unlike the horse it needs no rests while working, it eats only while in actual use, and when the day's work is done it requires very little attention, and leaves you free for other "Chores" about the Jace. Then, it can be housed in one-quarter the space of the horses, wagon and larness it replaces. It is a mistaken idea that a truck is useful only for driving upon paved roads. The Ford can be driven all over the farm, and used for hauling grain, potatoes, fruit 'roots, fertilizer, wood, stock milk, or any other product. The speed it travels, the time it saves, and its low upkeep cost appeal very strongly to all users of the Ford Truck. FORDSON TRACTORS ^ This is the tractor the provincial government distributed over the province this spring. It is giving good satisfaction. Its reliability has been proven. We have a full line of repairs for this tractor on hand. f We have on hand a COMPLETE STOCK OF REPAIRS AND ACCESSORIES of Ford Cars and Trucks and can fill any orders on short notice. FORD GARAGE C. C. McCREERY, Manager H. E. MEIBACH, Proprietor Canon City, Oolo. In ilu' latter part of Slay. 1917, Canon City, a municipality of about tl.Oii;! iiupulalion, pur-ciiased one 3 \-1 ton fiileral truck- a combination sand iu'd with Wood, hydraulic hoist attiulinient. and 1.0001 gallon gravity wal'r sjiriiiklcr. This' truck was dolivere.i (iuring the latter i part of July, and been in use by ! city for Hfl wm-'iiiig days from the j timo it was installed to March 1, i JIUIS. with the fo!!nving.results: We have delivei-d tio'J loads of sand each coutuiniii.i; " 1-2 cubic yards of sandjfor strei'i surfacing-a total of 3,332 yards. I;i connection with this | sand truck tli;' city installed a Galion sand loader: tv.o men operate the! loader, one as tiiginoer and attendant,! the other emiiloycd with a team in i drawing .sand to lie loaded. In the cost of operating tlie truck we include the co.st of loading. For the Ul) days during which the I truck has been in operation, the cn-tira cost to the city has been ?2,121.77. or a total per clay of ?17.S3, divided as follows: Engineer for loader Driver for truci; . . Man and team lor sand to loader Oil and gasoline for loader and truck ..................... ,5.03 Sand.........................Sn supplying ? 3.00 3.00 G.OO 517.S3 To have hauled 3,332 yards of sand on the street liy the old method of team and wagon would have cost the city $4,998.00 or .$1.50 per yard-a din'erence of $2,S7G.23 was saved to the city during this period. Using tile truck as a street sprinkler, we are ;ible lo cover about eleven blocks with one tank of water. It requires three trips to cover, from curb to curb, our broadest street, which is 100 feet wide, other street being covered by two Iriiiii. and the service obtalnea is fully equal to that given by six liorse-drawn sprinkler,s of liflO gallons capacity. Tlie cost of reiiairs on this combination truck lias been nominal. The truck has traveled appro.ximntely 7,-140 miles and tlie Firestone tiros are still in very good condition. It: is safe to say tluil, within ten months' op-ei-ation the tnuk lins fully paid for Itself, in the difi'erenee of upkeep and the better service given. Canon City is well pleased with its' Investment and recommends to cities which find themselves in about the saiiie conditions that we were in, that the.matter of initial cost sliotikl not ho too seriously considered.

' THE McLEAN TRANSFER 313 SIXTH STREET SOUTH PHONE 109? 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. 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 tiiat 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 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: 'i �' RETAIL 1 Loaf........................................... 15c 2 Loaves..................................... 25c 9 Loaves for.....................................$1.00 WHOLESALE 11 Loaves for............... .................... $1.00 A^. / Schweitzer Fred.
