Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 30, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD I FAIR A SUCCESS (contivped f ROM front^ PaOI) Ind domestic products and women's �Work. The vegetable and grain exhibits called forth much commendation, and were realty fine, consiclerltiK that this section of the country felt tho dry spell perhaps more than any other section. The quality of grain both threshed and in sheaf, was really good, and the garden truck was splendid. Alfalfa a Feature The feature of the grain and grass exhibit war, that of alfalfa. Dry land, dry year.-but line alfalfa just the same. This exhibit proved beyond n doubt whn; can be done on dry land even in a dry year, with alfalfa and careful cultivation.

Maddangh, of the agricultural society, was a heavy prize winner in the giuius. grasses, vegetables and other classes. He got a good many first prizes, lie is a hardworking, unassuming little fnrmer, with iittense faith in the country and in his own ability to product anything that can reasonably be produced with scientific, farming and hard work, in this country. One of his feature exhibits was that of preserved home grown fruit. He exhibited cherries, strawberries, raspberries, and many other classes of fr.iit, grown right on his farm south-west of Etzikom, and grown to perfection, good enough to satisfy the most exacting of fruit-lov-ers. "It is easy enough," said Mr. Maddaugb, while showing his exhibit to the Herald man, "to grow this fruit in this country. Get your wind-break first; that is essential. The fruit will grow all right if you give it the proper attention." Domestic Product* Good " , JThe domestic products, butter, eggs, bread, cake, and so forth, and the exhibit of women's fancy work, nil done by Euikom district women, was one of tho features of the exhibition, and was admired by all who attended the fair.

Otic woman of 'Russian nationality who lives near Etzikom. brought in 44 exhibits to tho women's classes alone. She got some good prizes too.. The Ked Cross ladles during the day served refreshments on the grounds and netted a good sun;. Hard-Working Directors The hard work pui in oy the directors Is worthy of comment, and they have done wonders for their first year's fair.

REGRET AT BACON BAN Toronto, Aug. 29.-Food Controller Hnnna today expressed regret at the ban ou bacon imports in Britain, and declared it had never been a matter for discussion with Canada.

The food controller hinted that his order ngarnst the use of bacon ofi Tuesdays and Fridays might now be rescinded but he desired to consult the rf&visory council before making a definite statement. TRAVELS 7,500 MILES A YEAR Outside of Watch's, Balance Wheel Is a Great Traveller An astute French mathematician has found that In certain watches the motions exceed two hundred million a year in little equal jumps. In the game time the outside of the average balance travels 7.500 miles. Yet, despite this astonishing distance traveled by the ordinary watch, the amount of power consumed is trifling, states the Popular Science Monthly-for August. One horse-power is sufficient to run Iwo hundred and seventy million watches. This is probably all the watches that are in existence. But if there should be more there would be enough power left in the one hora�-power to run an additional thousand watches or so., COSTS To get your boy ready for school when you get his clothes here :: STRONG NEAT SHOES We have no better value to offer than our boys' school shoes.

N. R. BILL TO THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 1917 E Will Limit Speeches-Governor Assents to Service Bill Before Large Crowd Ottawa, Aug. 2!).-Tho third reading of the Canadian Northern bill will be carried tomorrow under tho closure rule. Notice ti this effect wns given by Sir Thomas White on tho eve of the adjournment tonight of a debate on an amendment to tho motion for third rending, moved by Hon. William Pugsley. The amendment was one providing that tho award of the board of arbitration that will fix the value of Canadian Northern Railway slock to be purchased by the government must not be accepted until approved by parliament. When the adjournment of the dobat-e was moved by K. M. tyacDonald, Sir Thomas White gave formal notiOe of the closure tomorrow, stating that tho debate had already been in progress for two wer\s and it was necessnry that the bill should be disposed of. He added that with the consort of the house, tho leader of the opposition, if ho desired to speak, would not be confined to the time limit of i;o minutes. During the course of the debate, Sir Robert Borden made an important speech outlining the probable policy of the government in regard to railway in the'future, lie said that when the government acquired tho Canadian Northern railway, as far as he was concerned, he would devote his best energies to making the operation ot the road as efficient as any l?ne in Canada. He regarded it as impossible for any department of tho government to undertnko the management of a great railway system. However this wa3 a matter for tho next parliament to solve. He believed it was necespary for the railways and the government to get together in the immediate future and deal with the possibility of having a system of cooperative management of all the railways of Canada. The Dominion had nearly 40,000 miles of railway. He did not pretend that this was too much but the mileage was not properly distributed. We should have less transcontinental lines, without cooperation in management there will continue ,. to- fee unnecessary and absurd duplication' of lines. Sir Robert went on to say that in studying this bill it hhd been borne^ upon him that the acojiisltiou of the C. oy the Canadian Pacific Railway would result in the saving by the Canadian Pacific ot $10,000,0(10 in construction. He thought, that by co-operative management this sum could be saved to the country. Sir Robert said that he had gone'Into this question with a number ef railway experts and they believed that such a system could be carried out. It would produce ' two' important results, it would save enormous sums in capital expenditure and would reduce operation expenditures. Is Now Law. Ottawa, Aug. 29.-The Military Service Bill is now law. Promptly at i 3.15 this afternoon Blackrod summoned members of the house of commons to the senate'- whore Mr. Justice Duff, acting administrator on behalf of his excellency, the governor-general gave assent to the bill. There was a large attendance of members of both houses and the formal giving of assent was greeted with applause. In the commons when the house met Sir Robert Borden brought up an important, matter relating to the enforcement of the bill. He said that the local tribunals as provided by the act would consist -of 24 members, half of whom are to be named by a board of selection to be appointed by joint resolution of the senate and the house of commons. Jt had been decided that thin board should consist of 24 members, four from Quebec, four from Ontario, two from each of the other provinces and two from the Yukon. The prime minister asked Sir Wilfrid Laurlcr to nominate 12 of the members of the board. Sir Wilfrid rose to reply just when the heavy knocks of Blackrod announced his arrival at the door of the commons. There was general laughter and cries of "closure." On the return of the members from the senato, Sir Wilfrid said he found himself in a delicate position because of the fact that he was opposed to the principles of the bill. t There were members of the opposition who favored the bill and others who were opposed to It, However, the bill was of such Importance and it had now become law. It was therefore tho duty of everybody to see that It was carried out as harmoniously as possible. Under such circumstances ho would accede to the recjuest of the prime minister. In doing so, he would confer with Liberal members irrespective of whether they opposed or supported the measure. Third reading of the Military Voters' bill was called, but Sir Wilfrid said that notice had not been given and asked that it stand over. Sir Robert said that the third reading had been moved under a misapBTe-henslon. ' Consideration of the bill was therefore postponed, the house taking up the concurrence ot supply. Hon. William Pugsley objected to the vote of three million, dollars for tho Hudson's Bay railway. The financial situation, he said, was becoming acute. The last loan had cost the country eight per cent, to negotiate. The government, he said, does not realizo the financial conditions-which confront the country. There was no need, he said, of spending so on the railway. Us. completion wji.VJ involve other large expenditures Including money required for the purchase of tho steamships. Mr. Pugsley asked tho minister to at, least reduce tho expenditure. K. \V. Nesbltt of .North Oxford supported tho suggestion. There was no' real necosslty tor the expenditure.'-It wu Vartic- One of our School SUITS if You Let Him Decide- He likes a suit that will give him a neat, manly appearance for which Sanford's clothing is noted.

Stock never was larger or finer. . x THAELL �08 Third Avenue South ~ ularly wrong at the time this vote should he reduced. Hon. Frank Cochrane said that a portion of the vote was necessary to coVer the cost of a bridge being constructed across tho Nelson river. This would involve an expenditure of 1350,000. Mr. Pugsley asked why three millions should be voted. Mr. Cochrane replied that the money need not be spent even if it is voted. B. M. Macdonald objected to this statement-money should not be voted, ho said, unless it is proposed to spend it. The government should exercise more economy. , E. M. Macdonald declared that- the government was appropriating money raised for war purposes for other and unnecessary purposes. L I (From Our Own Correspondent) Macieod, Aug.. 29.-Five miles west of Macieod, lying in the bend of the river and at the foot of the Porcupine Hills, with the mighty "Rocky Mountains and their snow caps In tho distance, is a farm that is up-to-dato in almost every particular. Six sections aro enclosed by the wire fences that show tho dividing lines from their neighbors. The buildings are all frame, on good foundations. Barns, stables, drive sheds and corrals have running water all tho year round, with sheds for implements. Thrf house ion a rising ground commands a view of the greater part of this farm, and this has all modern improvements, well supplied with water, heated with furnace, and all that will make the work of the housewife easy. It is surrounded with a flower garden and a great background of vegetable garden. The wheat fields cover two sections of land, while the other grains occupy not a few acres of great producing land. Bight binders were busy in these field's cutting wheat, which the owner thinks will yield 25- bushels of the golden grain per acre. Beyond is the coming growth ot trees that helps to make every farm home look like a real home where all live in peace and_har-inony and' where the. boys and Igirls love to come back. Such a farm home is that of J. C. Maxwell. . Farmer W. H. Cox was in towu this week delivering a few head of beef cattle, \yhich averaged over $75,00 each. He reports the crops a little later, but very good in tho hills.- S. A. Sarge sold his farm of three quarter' sections with horses, .cattlo, machinery and crop for a good price, and received the cash. Meatless days are being closely observed in Macieod in  the home, restaurant' and, hotel. Farmers report using a greater quantity of twine than they anticipated. The crops are so much better than expected. An auto accident was avoided yesterday py the sudden thought of one of our farmer friends who had his machine tinder  control, at the crossing of a street. No one was hurt, enrs were not even damaged, only an old fence ,was torn down, thus saving all parties in .the cars....... Grocery Specials Phone 1766 FOR FRli>AY AMI SATURDAY ONLY 20 lb. sack of B.
