Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 28, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta rage 8 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD Wednesday, August 28,1912 BACKACHE NOT A DISEASE The Grain Commissioners Hear an Excellent Case But a Symptom, a Danger Signal Which Every Woman Should Heed. 1^ Backache is a symptom of organic Weakness or derangement. If you have backache don't neglect it. To get permanent relief you must reach the root of the trouble. Read about Mrs. Wood-til'a experience. * ' Morton's Gap, Kentucky.-"! suffered two yeara with female disorders, my health was very bad and I had a continual backache which was simply awful. 1 could not stand on my feet long enough to cook a meal's victuals without my back nearly killing me, mm ft it [| such dragging sensa-� tions I could hardly bear it. I had soreness in each side, could not stand tight clothing, and was irregular. I was completely run down. On adVice I took Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and am enjoying good health. It is now more than two years and I have not had an ache or pain since. I do all my own work, washing and everything, and never have backache any more. I think your medicine is grand aad I praise it to all my'neighbors. If you think my testimony will help others you may publish it."-Mrs. Olue Woodall, Morton's Gap, Kentucky. � If you b�T� tb� slightest donbt that Lydia E.

Freckle-Face New Remedy That Removes Freckles or Costs Nothing Here's a chance Miss Freckle Pa�e to try a new remedy for freckles with the guarantee ol a reliable dealer that it will not cost you a penny unless it re-Moves the freckles, while If it does give you a clear complex-Ion, the expense in trifling.

Be sure to ask for the double strength otbine as this is the only prescription sold under a guarantee of money back if it falls to remove freckles. J. D. Higiubothara & Co., Ltd. The Central Point Mr. Ives tlien submitted a map of Southern Alberta showing the various railway lines over which wheat is routed which must come through Lethbridge, which holds the position 01" an assembly point. All wheat west on the Crow's Nest, on the ('. ami K. as far north as High River, on the Aldersyde line as far as Aldersyde, from th? A. K. & I. lines, and the Letbbridge-Weyburn line, is necessarily routed through Lethbridge. Having set forth the position Lethbridge enjoys in relation to the south, Mr. Ives went on to show the advantages which the creation of an inspection point here would bring the producer. First-Effects of Congestion For several years it has been ap parent to western shippers that there has been much congestion in the Winnipeg yards and consequent delay in inspection. The average time between the date of shipment of western grain and date of inspection is about fifteen days, and in a number of instances it has reached forty days. I cite instances as follows : Jones & Dill report H to 60 days, ("arclston Mill reports 30 to GO days. Ellison Mill reports 1!) to BO days Others report similar results. Therefore, if the average is fifteen days in ! transit, and if some cars are forty I days, it must be apparent that wpj>- | tern shippers are seriously handicap-  ped and are buying thousands of cars before they even know the official grade of a single oar. To illustrate : I Suppose an elevator using ordinary j care and good judgment ami buying usual amounts of grain offered at the beginning of the season (wh*ch is about two cars per day) would have thirty or forty cars bought before the first car had reached an inspection point ; if the elevator has missed grade on fifteen cars at the prevailing spread of 1911, the loss would be $1500.00. Producers consign cars to Fort William and, with their bills of lading, go to the bank for the usual advances of 75 to 90 per cent, of values and frequently have had to take 50 per cent, advance because the grain was not inspected, and they have to wait three to six weeks for returns. With western inspection the producer could realize the usual and leg timate advance he is entitled to. | the many delays that occur at present in the Winnipeg yards. Lethbridge should also be made an order point where the producer could consign his grain and receive the benefit of bids from local mills. The crop report lor districts Nos. 1 to 10 as compiled by government reports is as follows : Rushcls 1 907 ........................ r>,5tiO,U76 1 or 800 miles away from the point of shipment. If this obstacle could be "IMPOSSIBLE TO HELP MYKIDNEYS" Until I Used "Frult-a-tfres" Worlds 6reatest Kidney Cure Practically everybody in Toronto knows Professor J. F. Davis. For years, the elite of that city has taken lessons from Prof. Davis in the art of Dancing and Deportment. Ills constant activity gradually weakened his Kidneys, which calamity threatened to nuke him an invalid. But read Prof. Davis' letter- 563 Church St., Toronto, Ont. Deckmher 29th. 1911 "I want to say that "Fruit-a-tives" is my only medicine, and has been for the past five years. Previous to that, I had been troubled with Rheumatism and Kidney Disease, and had taken many remedies without satisfactory results. Noticing the advertisements of "Fruit-i-tive's" I adopted this treatment altogether, and as everyone knows, I am now-and havebeen since taking "Fruit-a-lives"-enjoying the best of health". J. F. DAVIS. If Rheumatism or Kidney Trouble is making you miserable, take "Fruit-a-tives" and get well. 50c a box, 6 for J2.50, trial size, 35c. At all dealers or sent on receipt of price by Fruit-a-tives Limited, Ottawa. sion in Saskatchewan. I found some curious problems in Kansas, owing to the fact that Kansas is a winter wheat State. Although the State is not on the water at all, there are great, assembly elevators where winter wheat [ is shipped and stored and then re-1 shipped to all parts of the world. Southern Alberta is the winter wheat growing region of the West, and I think that special attention might, be given it on this account. The winter wheat growing industry might well be fostered. , 1 The local consumption of Southern removed so that the producer . ., Albe,.ta,g crop wa8 another ,lvatter on be within a few hours' reach of ".he winter wheat district. Winter wheat Is one of the beet milling wheats in the world, but does not receive fair treatment In comparison with the bard spring wheats. Alberta wheat is characteristic, and he believed that the grading should be so governed that those characteristics might be taken into consideration. As a practical farmer he urged the Board of Grain Commissioners to make Lethbridge an Inspection point. The eastern 'provinces .have enough advantnges In being closer to the water front. Give the province of Alberta the benefit of inspection at home, and he was sure thut the farmers would benefit by several cents per bushel. Chairman Maglll then expressed the difficulty which they had to take into consideration. Since 1909 it had lieen 1 the policy of the government not to I create any more Inspection points. I They now had to show good reason | why that policy should be changed, and also that it would be practicable to change It.

Second-Benefits of Inspection If the grain is inspected at Lethbridge, the grades would be established as soon as the first shipment reached Lethbridge, which would be j within twenty-four hours after ship- [ ment. This would have the effect of ' establishing more uniform grades among the buyers and a fairer and more equitable basia for the seller or producer. Lethbridge being the junction oi the Cardston-Kaymond, Weyburn, Coutts, Aldersyde, Calgary via Macleod, Crows Nest, and Medicine Hat line to Lethbridge, therefore, nearly all j inspection point, and if the farmers 1 could be put in a better position lo I talk to his banker, then he thought ' there would have to be some serious objection entered on the part nf 'he ' government if the inspection \ oint' were to be not granted. The Western Outlet He also pointed out that, if an in-' spection point were granted ::ere it would likely lead to the establishment of a drying plant which would relieve the congestion along the Mue at the lake front. It would .r.lso encourage the milling interests in Southern Alberta. Before concluding he also '.rew the attention of the commissioners 10 ".he fact that within a few years it was hoped that a large volume of the grain in Alberta and Saskatchewan would find an outlet at the Pacific coast. The major portion of this train which the commissioners required evidence. The following points with mills, and their consumption annually were given: Lethbridge, 600,000 bushels: Raymond, 150,000; Magrath, 150.000; Car-dston, 150,000; Pincher Creek.  150,-000; Macleod, 150,000; Medicine Hat, 200,000; Redeliffe, 200,000; making a total consumption of 1,750,000 bushels.

('., the main obstacle at present against the western freight over the C. P the grain hauled over these linca is | With the western movement of grain brought into Lethbridge and held long enough to make up trains for Winnipeg, during which time it could be inspected and no further delay nead occur, as trains could then be made up direct for Fort William or tor western terminals when the grades are established. This would save All Leather Collars These collars are nil in perfect condition, anil are good buying'. Just the collar you require to wear out that old harness. The Alberta Saddlery Co., Ltd. 5th Street, Lethbridge ft* the had a reality, an inspection point for grain at Lethbridge will handle thousands of cars annually, for the shipments west will then equal the shipments east from the prairie provinces. In taking a broad view of the situation that point should not be overlooked. Case Impressed Him Chairman MagiII replied that case had more merits than he thought, and wanted all the infornfa-tion possible to give. He was banded the various resolutions passed by the farmers' organizations, and the Boards of Trade in Southern Alberta dealing with the matter, and also statistical iaiormation regarding the crop estimate as compiled by the Associated Boards of Trade of Southern Alberta. Mr. Mugill: The questions* I want answered now are: How long are cars kept here in transit now? Does that give sufficient time to allow for inspection of grain without further delay? We want evidence 'in these matters. It was impossible to get the information necessary together for the morning session, so those questions were left over for the afternoon, when the Board will endeavor to bring in statistical evidence covering the enquiries. He was given some general information showing that Lethbridge is an* assembly point for cars from the Southern Alberta district, and that trains are made up here for shipment to Winnipeg and Font. William. A Case In Point Air. i.Maglll: It would appear that Lethbridge is an assembly point, and If the volume of business mentioned passes through there, I am inclined to think that Lethbridge might be made an order point if It is created an Inspection point. There is another thing I would like to mention also: A couple of years ago I was called upon to go to Kansas to look into certain elevator problems there in coanectioa meViv tfee elevator coinmis' Calgary's Limitations Calgary is an inspection point for grain for western shipment, and for western shipment only. It is illegal for the inspector there to give a grading on eastern shipments. The commissioner then wanted to know how many cars, or what percentage of grain, shipped to Calgary for grading and western shipment, are returned over the same line, or shipped east because the grade fell below that which would make it [profitable to ship to the west. Only high grades of wheat are sbipped west, where it is all used for local consumption. No one could answer this question although Mr. Campbell, of the McLaughlin Grain Co., stated that during the past year he had shipped at least thirty cars to Calgary, which he thought would grade No. 3. On arrival in Calgary the inspector had graded them No. 4, and they had to be shipped to Winnipeg. In several cases the Winnipeg inspectors save a No. 3 shipment- of j grading, with the result, that there was R. main line. I a great deal of dissatisfaction to the ] shipper, who was never sure of his grade. Chief Inspector Series said that he could not credit this statement, and will make a very thorough investigation into it. The commission bad received similar complaints before reach ing Lethbridge. The commissioners then wanted the Board of Trade to get information as to the number of cars of grain routed west from this division, and the number turned back ait Calgary on account of low grade. Mr. Jeliff's Address L. H. Jellff, of Spring Coulee, then addressed the commimasloners at some length, stating that a convention had been held in Calgary in 1909, which had been called by Premier Rutherford, when the elevator and Inspection question was discussed. He bad been 'present ait the meeting, and their contention was that there should be three inspection points created in Alberta, one at Calgary, one at Lethbridge, and one at Edmonton, the west em terminals of the three transcontin ental lines in the grain growing provinces. He himself had been insistent that Lethbridge should be one of the points, because of the fact that Southern Alberta is the centre of a1 Heavy Rains at Vork'ton Yorkton, Sask., Aug. 28.-ILuvest-inu; operations would have been general in this district commencing yesterday had the weather permitted. Everywhere large acreages of wheat and oats are ready for the binder, but heavy and frequent rains prevent fanners commencing work. Rain fell Friday night, Saturday-night and Sunday afternoon and an eight-hour rain fell yesterday. Harvesting operations will be delayed two days at least as a result. Situation at Boissevain Boissevain, Man., Aug. 28.- Harvest has been delayed by wet weather. About 25 per cent, of wheat is cut. The sample of wheat is good and the yield about the average. Estimated yield : Wheat, 20 bushels per acre ; barley, 45 to 50 ; oats, 60. The binder twine situation has been relieved by the arrival of a car lot twine by emergency special on Monday last. There is a big demand for harvesters, and farmers are offering big wages. Conditions Around Brandon Brandon, Man., Aug. 28.-Despite heavy rain, which fell over Brandon district yesterday, the majority of farmers around here are again busy in their fields today slashing down grain. That, rain would do practically little or no damage owing chiefly to the fact that very little grain has been cut_ in this district, is the concensus of opinion among farmers. In the meantime standing grain has been bent, by the moisture, and with danger by vfrost now very distant, prospects for splendid crops are bright. Helped Fill the Berry Saskatoon, Sask., Aug. 28.-With a cloudy, threatening sky and cool breezes from the west, today dawned with poor prospects for harvesting of any grain In this immediate .district. Farmers in the city today for supplies from the country say that all that is now needed is sunshine to dry up the pools of water which, in many cases, are lying on their fields. The rain, however, Is not an unmixed curse, for it has filled out the berry of the wheat to a great extent in the last week. Afraid Wheat Will Sprout Morden, Man., Aug. i!8.-Another heavy rain fell here last night, making it impossible for the farmers to continue harvesting. It will take a couple of days of fine weather to dry the fields enough to cut the grain. Should the damp weather continue, the grain in stook will be damaged by sprouting. Storm Delays Harvest Regina, Sask., Aug. 27.-Heavy rain fell about seven o'clock this morning and delayed harvest for a day, the first delay since cutting started. For-; tunately the sky kept cloudy Inst j night and there was no frost damage. Cutting is half done in this district: and reports received at Regina indicate that twenty-five pur cent of cutting in southern Saskatchewan is com-r'ct?d.

Professor It. H. Daniels, who is to lecture at the. Morris Theatre tonight, states emphatically that "the white slave trade" is, without doubt, the greatest crime in all history. In fact, this business assumed such gfceat proportions that the United States government felt compelled to take a hand in suppressing it. That "white slavery" is a fact can be attested .by hundreds of prominent officials. Professor Daniels, while lecturing, will exhibit a set of stereop-tican views dealing with vice.
