Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - February 18, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta �ITS''.'. ' MONDAY, FEBRUARY IK, 1018 Sr. THE LLTrfBKlDGE DAILY HERALD pact, stcven OOL EXPERT HAS SERIES LECTURES !W. T. Ritch Gave Much Valu- able Information to Sheepmen Here ) That there is no reason why there hould not be established In Canada mi international wool market that will draw manufacturers*' buyers from all parts of the world was the opinion 1 expressed at the closing session of � Mr. W. T. Hitch's lectures to the wool growers of Southern Alberta on Saturday afternoon. Mr. Ritch stated that ; when he came to Canada lie did not I know of the scheme whioh had been � put forward by the Dominion Uvcv �tock branch for the nationalization of. j the selling end of the wool industry. Me was not in Canada to put any ob-' static in the way. He hoped it would be a success; in fact he hoped that out, of it would grow something larger than Mhe promoters at first expected. There ) was no reason lie said, why It should jnot be the basis Cor the formation ul' 'an international market in Canada on rhe same Hues as the international 'markets In New Zealand and Australia where ,buyers from the wide worId come to attend the daily sales in the various cities. Mr. Ritch stated that a start had been made in the United States. On January Hrd and again on Jaunary 23rd of this month, sales conducted along the lines or the Brisbane and Melbourne sales were conducted in Boston, As yet only one auction brokerage concern had been created in the United States but he hoped to see the time soon when there would be five or six. That would insure competition In handling the auction business, and would protect both the growers and the international buyers. Mr. Ritch declared that If he saw the *vool auction sale, as conduct change made' the recent Boston sales possible. Thoughtful Addresses Mr. Ultch's addroHHes were very carefully thought, out, and carried the local growers along with him from the lamb to the sale oE the finished wool product. lie showed how to ', cull lambs to keep l.ho best wool producers, lie snowed how to cross breed to got the beet, dual purpose animals for the range and for wool and mutton at the sumo time. lie dealt with the care ami handling of wool, and explained the latest up-to-date machine shearing plants in Australia, some of which are now being erected In the intcrmounfain states, and he showed exactly how the wool Ih shorn in them, classed and put up so that buyers front the world over will come ami buy them instead of leaving the growers at the mercy of the middlemen who buy the old Boston wayl The fleeces are carefully handled m the new shearing sheda. Thfy are skirted and rolled. The tags and pieces are carefully handled and selected, being placed in the various bales to which they belong, and no fleeces are tied with string as is the way in Canada at present. When the fleece comes from the sheep's back it is thrown on a large table in such a way as to open it up to the air and allow the dust to shake out, thus reducing the shrinkage. It is ftkjrted and the pieces picked out, and then the fleece is folded and roiled, but not tied. It is then passed on to the wool classer who I Continued fkom Fi:ont Vaumi \ as an enemy of (he Russian poople. Kit-mante is ordered to hand over the "murderers of Hussion aoldiera ami sailors." .

Mr. Hitch's whole course jf the public auction sale as they have lectures was practical to a degree and it south of the equator. They were � a groat benefit to every flockmuster possible because they drew buyers j who heard him. lie leaves today "or from every country that imports wool, [Salt Lake City, even North America. They were possible because the growers have their wool classed and packed in the international basis. Kach buyer knows by the examination of a sample bale of wool'just exactly what he is buying. There are no sealed bids. lOverything is as public as possible. In fact there cannot be a sale unless there is in the wool exchange at the time a disinterested public. In order for Canada and theTUnJtert States tpfpllow this lead, the old Boston wool grades will have to he abandoned and the international terms and methods of pack-! ing used. These terms and methods ' are n ot being used by the growers in the intermountain states, through the course of instruction of Mr. Ritch, aided by shearers and classers from Australia who have come over for the purpose since the war started.

Dr. Bland declared that uneducated labor, fighting for its existence had been left to fight and solve its own problems without ihe aid of the church. The most Christian thing in tho past 100 year::, he said, hud been ihe labor movement-greater than the missionary movement. Tho church iias also failed because } unconsciously it has become subser-; vient to men of wealth, so that the \ poor feel that they have not 'he, same j standing in church matters,, ; Nevertheless tho church has done, and is doing great things. I3�t the conceptions of the past must, not be the conceptions of the future. The church instead of continuing along the lines of individualism and inw.-irduin, making the saving of souls for heaven its great aim, must turn elsewhere and take up the wider service for mankind. The individual foot bos advanced as far as it can go. The church must now bring forward tho other foot and straighten up the social disorder all round us. Then you'll find that Christianity hasn't plnyed out. At United Church At tho United Church Rev. A. D. Archibald spoke along similar lines, using charts as did the others to show the work had been already accomplish-; ed by the league, and the work that was to be done. He spoke of the results of the prohibition legislation, and emphasized during his address the necessity for child conservation and child welfare, upon which topic he dwelt strongly. Dr. Stand at Knox Church Sunday morning Dr. Bland preached a powerful sermon at Knox church from the text Colossians 1:18, "And he ! is ihe head of the church: who is the beginning, the first-born from the dead; that in all things he might have pyp-eininence." The speaker drew attention to the wonders of the 19th century. This time in which we are living is the summit of all the past ages. "The wonderful century." Its gifts to humanity are many-inventions for the progress of business, evolution democracy, and many social reforms, but j the greatest gift is the re-discovery of4 Jesus Christ. Inspired men of this century have showed him to us in a new light as the man Christ ."lesus. Some of these great preachers and writers wore Beecher, Charles Kings-ley and Phillips Brooks. Whittier tells of Kingsley, saying to him, "I cannot live without the man Christ Jesus. Whittier had been brought up in the old orthodox way and was at first shocked. He imagiuod that Kingsley would have said, "I cannot live without the theory of the atonement, but latefc1 the old poet, writes, "Kingsley's words came back to me and I realized their truth and that he was right. The Bible is being studied as never before and free criticism has helped to raise it higher than ever. We seldom now seethe old ranting athlest- a product ofia narrow intolerant religion of.criticism and pride. The theology is not as vital as Christ and we think of the dear old stupid monk in the pure early days of .'the church who could only learn; "I love tho Lord, 1 trust the Lord, I hope the Lord to see." The church is purer and better than ever before. In tho 2nd century communicants often went to the Lord's table drunk. Later on, Christians hanged, burned and persecuted those they considered heretics. Tho old missionarietb thougb not lacking in courage %ad devoiieo, did not have the wonderful loving methods eC our day. Our religion is getting to be more that of love, more of the Christlike character. As .lesus is given ihe pre-eminence so the church is raised, but Ucv. Dr. S. G. Bland will giv* an ad-dreHS at Wesley church tonight on "Canada at the Cross Koads " under the auspices of Wesley Fraternity. Pr. Ulnud is out' of the uhl"?t men in the west, He has advanced views on many (uestions. He is a strike | out. from the shoulder at existing evils and call for a radical change in our attitude toward the country's, problems. Those who heard Or. Bland on Sunday will undoubtedly be anxious ! to hear him again tonight. for CONSTIPATION have stood the test of time. Purely vegetable.
