Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 23, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta HMSE TE^ THE LETiraniDf.E DAILY IIEnALD FRIDAY, AUGUST 23. Iflt SAYS HUN CAUSE : EXALTED ONE, BUI Amsterdam, Aug. 23.-"Our caute is an exalted one, but it ia In grvut danger." Admiral Von Hintre, the German foreign secretary, told a conference of German Journalists In Berlin, according to the Bologne Volks Zeitung. He asked tliem to cooperate with him. After asserting In what high es-' *eem he held the press, the admiral said: "The government, the press and the nation must hold together w|th ne aim-to win the war. If these factors do not hold together we �hall be defeated. "The post of forei^ secretary is bj-BO Tneams � desirable one.

"I am not at all concerned regarding attacks either ou my person or against the Imperial policy. I am merely concerned with our cause. Our cause is an exalted one. but it Is in great danger. I therefore call on you to cooperate." The foreign secretary then had a confidential talk with the newspapermen, who represented the most Important papers In Germany.

RABBIT IS A TIN EFLEIV1ISH DOE BRED IN CANADA. One of the Hutcves at the Dominion Experimental Farm, Ottawa, where rabbit breeding has recently beer started. It 1^ customary to think of rabbits as being the pots of cliildron rather than of grown-ups, l)ut just lately they have been nibbling their way into the adult world on the plea of being second lieutenants of the Food Controllers of the Allied nations. Having presented themselves in thi.s guise, people are inclined to study them from a new angle ami to consider Madame Biinny more in tlio light^ of a patriot than a ehildreu's plaything- Europe found out long ago that rabbit was v/holesome fare, with tho result that it has been in general use many year;!. We have been nior? conservative about it on this contiu ent. chiefly because rabbits have not been bred to any extent and we lacked the first-hand acQuaintance and familiarity with them that would have made them popular. It is all a matter of custom. A\'e are not used to having rabbits on our tables in Canada, whereas in Britain it has long been of deli- considered more or less 1 eacy. t .-^nd to give it the piquancy of a j 191S war story, there is a lady in Lon-j don Town. Lady Deeies. whose latest I joy and pride is a ribbatry right in the heart of the West End. where she caters to rich and poor alike from the picturesque cover of a mauve overall and a barrage of hutches filled with all kinds and classes of bunnies. Before the war Lady Decies was one of the leading specialists in Pekingese in a palatial establlshment.'where the West End foregathered to buy its pet poodles. This shme establishment has n6w been transformed irio a remarkable rabbitry wHere., edible bunnies are.sold at reasobBble;prices; Duchesses still patronize it, but the'rliientele has been enlarged and slum'dwellers haunt it. too. for the British meat coupon Is goo^i for more ittujjit than It is for beet or mutton. She Tells You Why. "Why do this?". - "The government asks everyone to keep rabbits." replies Lady rDecies. "My rabbitry is partly propaganda and partly a business enterprise. I want everybody to know how easy it is to keep rabbits healthy and comfortable in small quarters. I am also anxious later to teach wounded soldiers how to keep rabbits and how to make their hutches."

The Dominion Experimental Farm recently started to breed rabbits, with excellent results. In .Montreal a number of women have taken it. up as an individual business enterprise, and as a form of war work, too. Hamilton has been showing especially keen interest in the rabbit question, and at tlio Peerless 'Rabbit Houses there are nearly 100 bunnies. Mr. John Peart, of that city. Secretary of the Canadian Hare and Rabbit Society, has recently enlarged his mountain plant, and reports that a great many men and women have started out to breed rabbits. The case of what a returned soldier (lid in England is an evidence of how rapidly they multiply, and how easy it is to care for them. He interested himself in rabbits and worked away in his spare time, with never an Inch of yard or garden and only one small room. The result was that since May, 1916, ho has raised 2.00O rabbits. When the management of the factory in which he worked decided to include rabbits In its self-supporting program, this man was puf in charge of tho rabbitry with 100 docs and bucks to start with. It Is estimated that this winter from the original "one hundred" there will be at; least 100 a week available tor the canteen menus. All they get in the way of food is grass, with a cup of bran twice a week and a little milk for the mothers with young families. . Great Foreign Industry... , It would bQ itjpossiblo to estimate' e.'cuctly how^ many^yabbits are market-ed'and eaten in Gr^at Britain, because there- is such a supply of the wild variety. Before the' Var not only were home \\Tirrens and farms drawn upon for supply, ljut from 10,000 to.i2,000 tons w-ere imported; annually.'partly from the continent, but-chiefly from Australia and , New Zealand. In France. Holland and Belgium rabbits are common fare and rabbit breeding is very general, especially on the smaller farms. Spain, is regarded as the original homd oE'the common European" rabbit. ' ' ' While not exactly the belle of her family, the Belgian hare surpasses all her sisters by reason of her edible qualities and the general excellence of her behavior. Sho is really a domesticated form of thp wild rabbit of Europe. The Flemish rabbit Is a cross between the Belgian hare and other breeds. At four months old a young Belgian hare should be ready for the table, and it it has'been properly fed It will weigh six pounds or more. Despite the fact that the rabbit seems to be nibbling as eternally as the brook is chattering, sho is really not at all fastidious and can be fed easily and economically. She needs a diversity of vegetable foods, and Is quite adaptable to sudden changes of diet. IVIultiply Rapidly. If pairing begins in February each doe may be expected to produce four litters a year. Belgian hares frequently have litters of ten or twelve young ones, but only six or seven of these should bo saved. The cooking of domestic rabbit Is very the cooking of poultry, and the experienced houswite will find It easy to handle. An added source of income is to he derived by tho rabbit breeder from the pelts, for war has interfered with the importations on this continent of rabbit fur from Europe and- Australia. Groy rabbits are dyed brown or black and become "Baltic black fox" or I "Baltic brown fox"; seal-dyed, they j Uecorno "Inland seal,", "electric seal," � "coast seal," or "near seal." Many women could keep rabbits on the Bide. It is not the kind of thing that takes up all one's time. Indeed, they are a more profitable backyard Investment than hens, and are certainly loss trouble. The youngsters should be encouraged to keep them as pots. It Is thriftless to ignore a source of food supply so full of opportunities, interest and profit. Indeed, It Is patriotic now to turn to rabbit keeping as an industry of potential national Importance. RICH VELOUR COATS $42.50 Shades wine, taupe, brown, castor, green and navy.

The SIMPSON COMPANY, Limilea DON'l BEUEVE HUN Maj.-Gen. Lessard Does Not Think Subs Can Get Much From U. S. /i The body of Torrance Curran, Dominion govcrnnienl mining rocorder at WhltohorsB, was dlHCOvered in the waters below Whitohorso by an Indian. He had lived for many years in tho Yukon.

Peterson was in district court at^Jlpvelstolfo. A. U. Wustberg is tho Qodislii&if\i witness. St. .lohn, N. B., Aug. 23.-"I do not believe tho German under sea boats operating along the Atlantic Coast are securing any appreciable amount of information as to conditions in tho Maritime Provinces," said Major General Lessard, acting officer commanding Military Blstrlct No. 6 and inspector general for eastern Canada, who arrived hero last night. "Tho majority of the U-boat commanders are men who were formerly employed in sMpping activities on this coast prior to tho war," he continued. "And this ia one of the roasonB why they Impress our seamen with the Idea that they are well Informed of activities, military and naval, In Canada. A Good Guss* "I never liotlovod that tho Germans know tho number of oftlcer.i on the Llandovery C!astlo," ho continued. "They made a good guoss at It, that was all.

"The Uritisb are securing all the ilrfformatlon they desire from Germany. .We know tho typo of submarines they aire turning out there and many of their military secrots, but how ar? we getting the Information?

RETURNED MEN, s STUDENTS, WALK OUT IN PROTEST Montreal, Aug, 23.-Something new In tho way of a strike was stagod In Montreal today .when the students at the vocational training school, returned soldiers, who are being fitted for trades In civil life, "walked out" as a protest against tho governmont's policy In regard to tho pay of returned men who are boing trained In faotor-iles, The nion complained because tho commlHslon in charge of vocational training discouragos manufaaturors from paying soldiers who nro undergoing training In tlieir plants. During that period tho men are on pay and allowance fj'om tho dopartmont. This is tlio policy that Is being carried out all ovor Canada. The men further complain that thoy cannot get their pay regularly as tlioy did when over-sous wlioro it was forthcoming once a week whlio horo flvo weeks somo-tlnioH pass withofut being any payday. About 300 moil are aftcctod by the strike, DRY FARMING PRACTICES In discussing the principles of dry farming at tho irrigation convention Nelson, B.C., Hon. W. It. IVIotherwell spoke in part aa follows: '"The practice of stubble burning and stubble farming, sound enough In some localities and for a time, has about had Its day and should be permitted to pass quietly into history. There Is no .auostlon that tho burning of Etubblo together with all top fibrous matter tor the past 25 or 30 years has had much to do with tho soils gradual increasing tendency to drift. On the other hand, sowing on stubble, especially on poor stnbblo, has. had the effect of encouraging and ostablishinK perennial weeds, such as quack and similarly rooted grasses, thistles, dan-dlllons, poverty weeds, etc., until thoy have become a positive and growing menace to tho most approved dry farming practices." "Although fully 80 per cont. of Saskatchewan's open plains wheat has suffered severely from drought thl.h season, It is generally admitted that tho 'cow country,' or more recent preemption area suffers In this respect more froqucintly and more acutely than the remainder of tho province. In view of this, it would appear advisable to try out at least a portion of one's farm In tho west and southwest country by summorfallowlng every other year, Instead of onco In throo years or not at all as Is tho custom with some. Tho fact that this dry area in 1915 not only made ii record crop yield for Canada but for tho wholo world, proves that It la highly productive. But the phenomenal, though occasional productivity tempts many to gamble on its early rocurreuce with the result that when a dry y^ar cOmes Instead, crop failure Is tho Inovitablo roBull; on lands whoro a �ufflulent store of raolsturo has not been laid by-not tor a 'rainy day' but for a dry day. Ill dlHtrlcts where early autumn frosts occur the problem la more com-, plex and this additional factor must thora bQ taUoninto account," _ 927?32 ;
