Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 29, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, AUGUST 29, 1910 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HEIULD' PAGE THKEfi There's going to be no chance tor a nap between acts at the Labor Day sports at Henderson Park next Mon- day afternoon. The committee has a bill a mile long all doped out and there won't be an idle minute. Be- tween bucking, riding, roping and fancy ntunts on tlio part of the buck- aroos of 'the stampede which is being staged under direction of Hyssop the horse races and a program of track and field aports for men, wo- men and children, the committee feels in need of a little daylight saving to get away with the whole show. In the morning there will be a big parade down town and all the own- ers of new benzine chugwaggons are polishing up and decorating to be in line. A dozen floats will be on deck and with the Kilties Silver band lead- ing the procession, it threatens to be the best parade ever held in the city. In the afternoon Commissioner Freeman Is going to put on a few ex- tra cars to carry the crowd to the park. He expects to make some money for the old system that day, so cume along and help him out to the extent of a couple of jits. At the grounds there will be everything. One of the features besides the stampede and the horse races will be a first aid competition in which soveral teams will 'be entered. An 100-yard race for soldiers also promises to be an event. This is about the only big program of Labor Day sports for Southern Alberta, and while many duck hunt- ers wil be out of town on that clay, tliero wilt bo many in- town from out- side points. The day should be all to the merry. The Ducks Will Say What Sherman Said Next Friday There is going to-be one'grand as- sault on Friday, September .let, and it isn't going to be at Verdun either. That happens to be tho opening of season and ducks promise to be duck-soup for the avenging hunters. They are planning to go out in force. The trusty flintlock is being given a dose oC goose-oil, the wnders are be- ing patched up and all the flivvers in the countryside are being pressed In- to service. The are warned, that ow- ing to the cartridge companies all on large munition contracts, that shotgun shells will not be so easy to get, one local firm reporting that they had only received so far, about one-third the amount that they had on hand at this time last year. Shells have also risen slightly in price, es- pecially those manufactured on tlie other side of the boundary. Another essential to' a duck hunter is the annual license, which can be obtained from any game guardian, or at the court house. The to be very numerous _i-.jJJi, but there are many your' yet, and it is to be in the interests of true sportsmanship, they will not be molested or "potted" by the indis- criminatiug hunter. How The Majors Are Stacking Up New York, Aug. and National league teams entered the IDlti home stretch in probably the most closely contested races of a de- cade. No team has" yet gained a com- manding lead. Boston, Isador iu the American almost doubled its advan- tage during the week, while Brooklyn the National league leader, fell back and ended the week only 19 points ahead of Boston. In tin American, Boston has a lead -which again may bring the champion- ship- Five other teams, however, are ready to step ahead should the Red Sox falter. At the end of play Fri- day, Detroit, St. Louis, New York, Chicago and Cleveland were bunched .so closely that only four points sep- arated die Tigers and the Indians in second and sixth places. New York is making a gallant fort to regain the lead and up to Thursday had won eight out of nine games. Tho Yankees met St. Louis Thursday and Friday ami lost two out of three. They beat the Browns 6aturday and moved into third place. Boston, played the best ball in the National circuit, winning six straight The Braves, 45 points behind Brook- lyn at the beginning of the week, nar- rowed this to 10 by the week-end. The Superbas are not doing so well on their "western trip, winning only "three of sereif games. Philadelphia lost four out of five games to Pittsburg and went to third place. The champions arc not out of the racei however. New York's grip on fourth: place is loosening. The Giants scored only one run in their first fqur games of the week against St. Louis and Pittsburg. Iriterseetiona! results for the week were: 12; west 14. American: East 15; west 12. Joe Bush, Philadelphia Americans, with, a no-hit, no-ran victory over Cleveland at Philadelphia Saturday, led the pitchers for the week. "ZIM" IS TRADED Chicago, Aug. Zimmer- man, third baseman, was traded by the Chicago National league club to- night to :the New York Giants for Larry Doyle, captain of the New York Hunter, a first baseman and Jacobson, an outfielder. Zimmerman left tonight to join the Giants The New York players ivill'join the Cubs tomorrow and play in game against tb.e Phillies in the afternoon. the equal of most 15c. Cigars.

But those on the heavier ten miles or so south and southeast, say that much of the wheat will not be ripo enough to nut until about the middle of next though some will be a little ear- lier. There are no reports of a notteeablf amount of damage from any blight, hail or pests.- The yield this year will be about two-thirds of the 19.15 yield. This is accounted for to a great ex- tent by (he larger per cent of summer fallow this year! Some pieces of sum- mer fallow are "thought to be as prorn- isinir as any in this locality in- 1915.

Listen to what Herman Rosscld, advertising manager for Hears, Koe- buck Company, recently told the members the American Ad. Club at a. convention: "We have a bureau whose duty it is to read each week the country newspapers from all over the country. There is not a paper of any quence in our trade terri- tory that our bureau does not get, Tliis bureau looks over these papers iiiul when we find a town where the merchants arc not advertising in the al paper, we immediately flood that territory with our literature. It "always brings results far in ex- teess of the same effort put forth in territory where the local merchants use their local papers." v The Shadow of Death Hangs Over Belgium People are Living Within A Few Days of Actual Starvation. The situation in Belgium grows more critical with every passing week. The fate of women, children and old and wounded men, in steadily growing numbers, depends abspr lutely on the Belgian Relief Commission. If the food'supplied. by the Commission were'cut off, the third day would find the weaker.ones starving to death. Within two weeks would be dead or dying, and more would be suffering acutely. Compare this with our huge crops and ,twsy abundance of plenty of money Think of the average Belgian The father is in the. dead. Tlie mother takes her place in the length- ening bread lines, to get the meager rations served out by the Belgian Relief Committee.- The children, thin and pinched, and clad in rags, wait for what she will bring home.
