Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 23, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGES!* THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 1917 L HIGH RIVER AT WAS Be Clean-and Safe. Think of the gerni-Isdcn things your skin and clothes must come into contact with every day. Then remember that there is a splendid nntiscptic soap LIFEBUOY HEALTH S3 AP Uso Lifebuoy for the hands, the bath, the clothes, and the home. Its rich, abundant lather means safety. The mild, antiseptic odor vanishes lickly after use. , LEVER BROTHERS Limited TORONTOj m tCtJNTIVTJKD FHOM FliONT PaQ�> Hut the difference between sura-merfnllowed crop and stubble crop was limply demonstrated on one sec-lion of Mr. Noble's crop. Going north from tIn* Grand View farm .Mr. Noble ! led Hie party past this field, where on one end grew the stubble crop and at the other grew the summer-litllow crop. The difference was quite evfdeul. The stnlihle crop, a good crop, hut thin, naturally, will yield about .'b> hiis'ltels. The summcrfnllow crop. Mr. Xoi)ie hopes, will yield ">0 j bushels, or at least 4ii. It is very j heavy, so heavy that it is difficult to wade through It. ' The parly were then taken up to I the east farm, which is the main Noble j farm, and where one gets a good idea j of what Mr. Noble is doing in the various lines of experiment with seed crops and so forth. The party were taken through this farm and into Nobleford, where the ladies aid of the j town served the party with refreshments of the most deliciousAim!. As one man of the party remarked, at the risk of a divorce from his wife, "This is the best cake I ever tasted," and with all due respect to their own | home cooking, this remark was applied by all the men of the party to the good things that were provided. Mr. Hayr. who was in charge of the party from Lethbridge. and Mr. Mar-noeh made u few remarks, thanking the Nobleford people for their entertainment, and -Mr. Noble on behalf of the residents of the district, welcomed the visitors, and said he was glad they could see what the farmers of the district wcvt, doing in the way of right farming. The party were then taken west to the Mountain View farm, from where a splendid view of the country between there and Lethbridge could be obtained, a section dotted with crops in stook and summerfallowed fields ready for next year's seeding. Krom there the party passed through the Monarch district, a prosperous settlement of industrious farmers, and thence homeward. Some Fine Farms Some of the finest farms In the west were seen during the trip. On the way out tiie Patterson, Boulton, Hayden and Thackaberry farms were passed. Mr. Patterson bought a half section from Mr. Noble last year and has a splendid farm. All these farmers have good crops this year. Mr. Thackaberry last year had TO bushels an acre on his crop. On the way home the Tucker. Mc-Olean. Koole and Meibach farms were passed. These farms presented sights that gladdened the eye. Noble Farm Statistics) j The Noble foundation this year has nearly 10,000 acres in crop on its �Various farms. The big organization is j more of a suo this am-i noon Sir George Foster re-; and ilvls is due to tlu� wonderful or-sponrled to the request by Mr. Knowles : ...u;ization Mr. Noble has built up, and of Moose Jaw for a statement of the tll0 ]ovaI support given him by hfs  �oal situation in Canada with partial- j u-i,0le force, office staff, foreman. 10 10 VOTES' BILL (Continued ?r.o;.t Fijont Page! (tentative of both sides being present. This defect, he said, could be easily remedied. He also objected to any officer being allowed' to carry around for clays and weeks open bags containing votes. These bag.s should be sealed at the closo of every polling day. After some other discussion Mr. Doherty give notices of a couple of amendments which may to some extent satisfy the opposition. One provides that in Canada the deputy presiding officer shall give the scrutineers notice and *hat outside Canada he shall do so whenever it is possible. At n late hour an amendment was adopted making provision for labor candidates on the ballot papers. Another amendment accepted provides that ballots shall be marked by the voter", in the presence of the presiding officer and the deputy scrutineers or milictry electors at ii;>g in their stead. The Coal Situation lar. relation to the needs for the ap prb:ichlng winter. lie said that Canada's production of bitur.-V.ons coal last years was thirteen, million tons while our importations were about the same. Canada also imported 4,500.000 tons of anthracite coal. Anthracite stocks are low and this year 1.000.000 additional tons would be required. Turning to the United Slates Sir George expressed that while production is increasing so are the demands because cf the changed conditions due to the war. After explaining activities of the fuel controller Sir George said that it was altogether likely both the United States and Canada will have to be put on rations in regard to coal supplies. The use of coal might have to be in some measure restricted to the Indispensable industries while the railways would be asked to so-called ordinate their services as to use a minimum amount of coal. An appeal would also be made to the general public to exercise economy. Hon. Frank Oliver -wanted to make a suggestion to the minister of trade and commerce as to how tha situation In Alberta should be dealt" with but Speaker Rhodes thought he would be out of order in doing so at that stage of the proceedings in the house. .Emmanuel Devlin of Wright, inquired of the minister of justice as to What progress was being made in the establishing of tribunals in connection With the military service bill. Hon. C. J. Doherty replied that some general progress was being made. They had to wait, however, until the governor-general gave his assent. "Then may I ask," said Mr. Devlin, whether'when Mr. Plaxton was appointed to secure information from members and arrange for tribunals, the government, as bound by the constitution so to do, had secured assurance from his excellency the governor-general that such assent would bo given." Speaker Rhodes suggested that the question should be put on the order paper. "The question is one of great public importance," said Mr. Devlin. The speaker ruled, however, that the question was one which should be placed on the order book. workmen and all. To these Mr. Noble pays a great tribute. The Foundation this year has ?ZS2 acres of wheat on summer fallow, 3060 acres of wheat on spring plowing, 1570 acres oats on spring plowing, 500 acres rye on summerfallow, 235 acres flax on spring plowing, 150 acres corn. 40 acres potatoes, making a total of 077? acres under cultivation. | To give some idea of the enormous expense the foundation is under, Mr. Noble quotes the following figures: Total expenses for one day. $1,'J00. There are 250 horses employed. The cost of feeding one horse is 50 cents a day, "making an expense of $125 a day for horse feed. There are 150 men employed, with an actual cash outlay for food of CO cents apiece per day, making a total of $90 a day. Mr. Noble says that the total cost lor food per man per day is at least $1, including the produce that is grown on the farms. There are 40 binders running altogether, at an average cost of $200 each, making a total for binders of $8,000. The Lethbridge party was organized under direction of Arthur Hayr, chairman of the entertainment committee of the board of trade, and was a success, without a doubt. High River. Aug. 22.-Terrific la a word hardly sufficient to describe the hail storm which covered High River district on Tuesday. The terrifying drum of the violently driven hail of large size and immense quantity was accompanied by quickly-repeating flashes of lightning and roars of thunder and i now a desolate waste. The complete destruction by hail cannot at all be comprehended until witnessed; the loss of grain crop alone can be conservatively estimated at from SO0.00O to 1,000,000 bushels, and in money the loss may be put. at two million dollars. Everything Suffers. Everything in the course of the deluge suffered, including the hay crop and pastures' and the windows and buildings in the country were broken and damaged. Hail insurance was carried to some considerable extent in the ravaged area, but it is smaii in comparison with the loss sustained. . Injury* to one person has been reported. The ca3e is that of a young lad who was caught on the road with a team of horses and heavy load. When he reached shelter he was bareheaded, and his face and head were cut and bleeding and his hands were terribly swollen.

A SUCCESSFUL T T LIVING UP TO THE PART Calgary, Aug. 22.-The I.W.W.'s that mysterious organization of restless, anarchial, unskilled laborers rapidly spreading throughout North America, j are causing some alarm in different parts of southern Alberta. Reports of activity come to tho city from Vulcan, where they have been endeavoring to tie up harvesting operations at this critical season. Across the line tho I. W. W.'s have made much trouble, tieing up grain operations and going even further. Authorities there seem to have little doubt but that the I.W.W.'s are financed by German agencies. The methods adopted about Vulcan are very similar to the more moderate methods across the line. These men decline to work themselves, and endeavor to keep others from working. The Vulcan farmers are offering $4 per day for stookers and $4.50 for binders. Some of these men have declined $9 per day. On Sunday last the I.W.W.'s held a meeting in the Vulcan park and decided on a plan of campaign. Their destructive work has been in preventing laborers from working. The I.W. W.'s threatened to burn down the printing plant of the editor who was fearless enough to criticize them. TJie farmers, held a meeting and F. Dunsmuir decided' to come, to Calgary to get 60 men. Some of the I. W.W.'s came up on the same train on Monday night and threatened to throw him off if he didn't get off.'He didn't get off, but came, on to Calgary. He succeeded in getting a number of men from here. Some of these men have been hanging about the office of W. Grant, provincial harvesting- officer, and spreading their pernicious gospel among men seeking employment. "We can make the farmers pay our price or make them leave their grain on the ground to rot," was one of the expressions overheard just outside of Mr. Grant's office door. Mr. Grant reports that 25 men arrived from Seattle Monday night and booked for the south country. (From Our Own Correspondent) .
