Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 1, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE FOURTEEN THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY EISRALD . - ~ \ - ---'---J , WEDNESDAY, DEJCEMBER 1, 1920 / :J|LM0SI2m00LBS. FALLING OFF IN CUSTOMS' REGBIPTS Customs Fair For Best Grades But f Faltinit aff Fif Lower 1^. � � iUBds:, * at the present tim�. Value ,gf Clip if ftkonth. th^ pElce ^1 wool' is At whait It niigU be, It iiould'be wor^ teoMlOK to N. T. 'McLeod, secretary ot Soatbern Alberts Wool GroTv-m'^^piooiatlon, the largest wool shlp-pinr ^licanizatlon in Western Canada, nd (Aifl of the largest on the continent.; To the Herald Mr. HcLeod staled that up to date this year the members of the assoclAtlon have shipped 1,437,-S41f pounds ot wool and another carload will go forward within a few days. This will make 67 carloads of wool frail this section, with a few odd-lot shi^xnents In addition. With what prl-T&ttt buyers have shipped out, the total wool shipments from South Alberta ^r 1920 will total close to 2,000,000 poinds, which considering the very hard winter through which sheep passed, just about creates a recbrd. Demand Is Spotted Wool prices are not by. any means good. According to Mr. Mclieod this Is biteause of the spotted demand. fPine wools are higheV than they have been dttring.tbe summer, while the lower iid ^coarse wools are off from 10 to 2S per cent on the British markets. The.same is true to a greater or less degibe In Canada and the United SUtes. Aja the wool of the association was shiived to the Canadian Co-oper-atito Wool Growers, Ltd., at Toronto, andctllis year was sorted and graded in the .warehouse there Instead of this work being done' in the field. Half Clip �old Otitbe wool shipped approximately BO per centhas been sold to date.'What hasfbeen sold consists mainly of the fine ^staple and fine clothing wools which brougkt from 4d to 52 cents a poutid and the fine medium clothing whioh brought 54 to 56 cents. The low , staple and coarse wools have also; fourfd a fairly ready market bringing 29 aq0 30 cents a pound. What re-mainfs includes' mostly the medium stapliB and the medium clothing wools, some, of which sold at Sg to 40,cents. It Is hardly expected, however, that the^ grades will' bring over 35 cents On the wIj|bTe;,the;6elling price' of the yvar's clip willbi around ,38 to 4* .'^nts on the |^e^g(>> Hhough j one i rancher sol^ n^stiW^ti ail 51 ten|^ early In the; seaafcni^Whe total returns from the clip will therefore be in the neighborhood \)i |5^0,000 for what was shipped through the association or $800,000 for the total Southern Alberta clip as against $1,100,000 for the clip of 1919.' Wwe it not for the fact that l^sheep ranchers were compelled to par very higKprlces for hay last winter the industry would be in very good condition, but what wtth the cost at wintering sheep Inst year and the low prices for mutton now prevailing sheepmen are not tallying very loudly about the profits in the business. But the same is true in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and Utah, so that Southern Alberta wool growers do not feel that they are all the-situatioii they are facing. "It will take a couple of years for the IndUdtry to get on a good solid basis again," said Mr. McLeod to thQ Herald, "but the rancher who stays with it is going .to make good at the receijjls for November showed a decrease of over $13,000 as compared to November 1019.. The figures are - NoveiQber, 1920, $S6,88S.90;. November, 1919, ISS.SSS.Sa. Sales taxes amounted to $3,273.06. �While building permits for the month showed a decrease in value of $3,000, as cooipared to No'vemb�r, 1919, the permits issued for.the year to the end ot November were $80,000 In excefSB of the same period last year. The figures are, November, 1920, $9,9S5; November, 1919, $12,890. Period to November 30, 1920, $142,190; to corresponding period '1919, $162,110.

European nations are either refusing to buy or have not tho money to buy at tho prevailing rates of exchange in favor of North American countries. "Wo are no more than filling the our own area,' domestic demand in .. the bterald was told at the Ellison Mills. "Export business is dead. There Is no export to Jai>an and China where we had a nice business before the war. There are millions ot barrels of fiour in the warehouses at Atlantic seaboard points, the. big millers in the east having prepared for a big export demand" in Europe commencing wUU Sept. 1 when the Dew crop came on the market. But Europe is not buying and the flour lies stored there w-here it has bee^j for three mouths! "That la the real reason for the slump In wheat prices.

He saw the hunter tramp down the road out of sight while Farmer Brown's boy watched. He saw Farmer Brown's boy hide the hunter's gun and then turn back toward the tree in which poor j Rusty tha Fox Squirrel had hidden. Chatterer guessed Just what Farmer Brown's boy was going to do. "He is going back to see Just how badly Rusty was hurt by that hunter with the terrible gun," thought Chatterer. "If Rusty isn't much hurt he probably has left that-hole by this time, but if he is much hurt'Farmer Brown's boy will find him in that hole and will try to So something tor hlra. Rusty doesn't know it. but he was mighty lucky to have Fai-mer Brown's boy happen along Just when he did. If anything can be done for Rusty it will be done by Farmer Brown's boy." You see.
