Ottawa correspondent of the Winnipeg Tele- gram save: "It is understood that steps will be taken at once to'remove the name of J. Allison irom the list of honorary colonels." "WOOL IS WOOL" AND THEN SOME (By C. M. McLennan, in the Ameri- can Sheep Breeder.) Chicago, Aug. is really nnite astonishing the way wool dealers can yhc-.l bear-skins when they Ket hack to Uealltown with the burden of the country's clip in Llmlr hands. They have turned bnlls with a rush, anil are, doing fill in their power now to got the iirice up so they will make :t nice little profit on their season's "shearing." Hut they are getting a bit of their own medicine Just now for the manufacturers nmn't buying the new clips with as much gusto as the dealers would like. Demand con- I linues somewhat slack, though this is I accounted for partially by the hold- Ing off of certain New York goods I buyers. The situation is summed up I very nicely by the New York Trade I Record. Remember this paper re- presents the trade and doesn't claim to be the champion of the producer. i The paper is published in the interest i of the mills, the dealers and the brokers, but .nevertheless It is im- partial, and draws its conclusions j from facts as they are presented, not I as they are misrepresented. This j little sidelight on wool will support the claims I have made since early in the year, ihat this country was facing a famine in foreign wools, and hence the domestic price would ad- vance very materially and that it will nrlvance still more in the weeks to come. "Tilers can bo 12 doubt about the strength of the current domestic wool market. Dealers may have some high priced wools on their hands, but these burdens are plainly not worry- Ing them, because there is every likeli- hood that they will be called format the present asking prices before many have gono round. The current wool holdings of many of tho mills may bo abnormally large, but the domestic consumption of this raw material la now on such a scale that even the enormous weight of foreign wool acquired, last season embargoes were established on English and colonial wools) has dropped off to normal burden. There Is little probability that the domestic supplies of foreign wool can bo materially added to fpr months to come, .and, even conservative pre- dictions regarding the Australian outlook' favor no In embargo restrictions before the first of the year. Operators .will' have to place some goods within the next two months, and .the domestic wool market will get a, boost from this buying." That's what I've been telling grow- ers right along ImL perhaps some of them will realize more deeply the truth of the statements coming from for No other low priced car has such. power comfort efficiency economy beauty No other popular-priced car is so complete.

Horsepower that prices were being-lowered by the dealers owing to the fact that Great Ilrltnln bad decided, to allow the exportation of nil classes of wool to tho United States and would issue licenses for shipment. No New Licenses The latest cable on that score will soon make this teddy bear blto the dust. Here it is, dated Uradford, Aug. 1: "The wool committee of the war trade department met today and de- cided to allow no exports of wool to the United merino crossbreds. or English ilcec.es." Consequently we arc forced to such statistics as these, and they will be repeated for many more months: Exports from England, wool: June, nil: July, nil. "Wool is Wool" Someone said that the growers didn't know the difference In the of the various grades, and that "wool y. F. A. .imply wool" to them. Such a situation, if it is general ,is appalling. it exists to a large do- here in this" country, but you icing overcome. Wool gree bet it growers here have been in the dark long enough but once let them learn that their pockctbooks are suffering and they soon got wise.

Calgary Holds I notice in an eastern paper that the Calgary sale had been postponed to August 5 on account of bids being ____......_______ too small. I should say they were, win to do my share toward too small ff they were only 29% centsj him -in the .next Remember that the first thing a buy- letters. er estimates in a clip is its probable shrinkage. Merino wools, or those who didn't know the dlffevenc? tween milk that yielded 1 per cf butter fat, and milk that yielded per cant, would bo- laughed at. Why shouldn't he knoiv the difference be- tween flue combing and with il merino foundation on account of possessing much more natural oil or yolk, scour- heavier than the cross- bred wools, such as are raised in the Calgary district. Ordinarily the lat- ter should he Tvorth more In the grease than the range-bred merino wools, Eimply because they sconr lighter, not having so much merino blood. Then they would not contain so much dirt "and uuat, not being grazed in the open country, where the high winds blow the dirt Into the fleeces. (It is not as windy anyway at Calgary as at Lethbridge. On this basis Macleort wools would he worth little or nothing.) So unless the Cal- gary wools are faulty in some par- ticular they should he worth as medium crdssbreds 32 to 35 as bright fleeces and 30 to 32 as dark. On this sanie. basis fine wools are worth about five cents less 'in the grease. Any parties who have wool still on their owa hands, should hold It. Don't worry about this midsummer quietness. It always occurs at about this time of year. Up to the current week unusually activity was noted for this season, and an immense volume of wool changed hands. _ .Manufactur- ers have shown considerable anxiety regarding the- better grades of comb- Ing wools and the extent to whjch these wools have been sold. Primary markets are about cleaned up. The close of the London sales placed best merino combing 5 to 1% per cent dearer than at the: close of the June sales. Medium merinos are ten per cent higher, medium and inferior per cent. All good greasy crosabreds are ten per cent higher, faulty lo per scoured 5 per cent. Best Cape greasy and scoureds per cent dearer.

Uarrett, prealdent and secretary of the United Faun Wo- men of Alberta, and Messrs. Held, 11. and W. .1. Jaskmau representing local improvement dist- ricts and rural municipalities' boards. After a full discussion the following definite policy as a basis for legisla- tion was decided upon and unanimous- ly adopted by all present on behalf of their respective organizations: that the rural por- tions of the province of Alberta should be dividO'l into districts for hospital purposes, according to geographical and natural boundaries, having .con- sideration also for the regular lines of travel. The districts should be large enough to make the erection and maintenance of the hospitals' eas- ily borne by the ratepayers, but not too large for easy accessibility. We would suggest as a standard district, an area approximately equal to that of four miiniuipal units: that after the hospit- al districts have heen definitely decid- ed upon, a referendum must he held in each district as to whether it is desirable to construct aud maintain a hospital within its boundaries. 4- reasonable time must be allowed for consideration, Sut a definite .date must be set. on or before which date the vote must he taken. A majority of the vote in any hospital district shall decide for that district. that provision mUBt be made for gathering statistics for each district, covering: (a) The taxable area; (b) The estimated cost of a hospit- al and equipment for the (c) Probable cost of maintenance based on figures secured from various rural hospitals already in existence. (d) Any other facts bearing on. the necessity and desirability of sucrr.an enterprise. This information must be distribut- ed free In the districts to which it refers. We recommend that the departmenj ot municipal affairs be made respon- sible for the gathering of this in- formation and that the government bo required to assume the cost of print- ing.
