Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 8, 1921, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, JANUARY 8, 1921 THF T.FTWPPTTV.P PAOE KI.KVKM LETHBRIDGE BOARD OF TRADE-ANNUAL REPORT FOR 1920 department of Soils, under Prof. tnd 1'rof, Macgregor Smith luis tnkcii charge of a brunch dealing with gvucrnl farm engineering, building, etc. .Several boys who completed their High School course at Lethbridgt! witli credit hove taken (he-courses provided at the Agricultural Schools, and some of them will go forward to the College. Thceo young men have worked (during the Summer on farms near Lethbndge. During- the summer months tho professors from the Agri- cultural Schools carry out extension work among the farms in their districts; there is room for great expansion in the use- fulness of this work. AOHICULTUHAI, FAIR IN 1921. Tne buildings and other facilities for conducting an Agri- cultural Fair at Lethbridge are very complete, and in attrac- tive surroundings near the Henderson Park and Lake. Arrange- ments arc being made to hold a Fair some time during 1921. Under the auspices of the Goaldale Commercial Club" and the itotary Club pf Lethbridge, n small autumn Fair was held in 1920. CANADIAN' JlANCFAfciuitEns' VISIT. During the Summer was visited by a large body of men from the industrial centres of Eastern Canada, under the auspices of tha Canadian Manufacturers Associa- tion. During their short visit they made a trip around some of the farming districts close to the city, and many of them for the first time in their experience saw irrigation farming being practised. They wore also brought into contact with the great coal-raining operations that are carried on within eight of the city. Such visits haVB considerable educational value, and it is a pity that opportunity has not yet been afforded for a corresponding visit by Western farmers and business men to look around the great industrial and manu- facturing establishments in Eastern Canada. GOVERNMENT LABOUK. BUREAU. This Bureau has given excellent service during the year, and over men have found employment through this agency, as well as between four and five hundred women. Far- mers and other employers make their wants known to the Bureau, uhri pcoplt looking for work register there, and they are tMis brought tof ether. Connections are maintained with Government offices performing i-he same work throughout Canada, and surplus of labour in one place readily finds means of getting in touch with places where there is a dearth. THE TRAVELLEES This association continues its excellent work of meeting the incoming trains, and .preferring assistance especially to unattended girls. A home is maintained by these ladies, with pome iinancial help from the city, and there is accommodation for i'armcrs' wives who come in with their families for the day for shopping and entertainment in the city; they may leave their children at the home while they attend to their business. SCHOOLS. The educational facilities provided in Lethbridge of a very high order. A pupil who received his early education in tho Public Schools and the High School at Lethbridge, AValker Dunham, has brought distinction to himself and to the schools, and the Alberta University, by receiving tha nomination for 1920 for Alberta to a Rhodes' Scholarship at Oxford NOBMAI, SCHOOL. 'nave continued to urge the Alberta government to erect a Normal School for training teachers in Lethbridge. This request has been endorsed by the school authorities throughout the districts surrounding Lethbridge. LAND TITLES Omca. The people throughout this district have continued their representations to the Alberta Government as to the- necewity. for the establishment of u Ijand'Titles Ollico at the need for which becomes greater and greater as transactions in imids and property increase. There aw but two Land Titles OH'ioe.s in Alberts; before the war tho Alberta Government had agreed that a of decentralization of the work of these ollices should be insti- tuted, and that an office should be established at Lethbridge, as asked for by representatives from the country and the various town and village communities in this district. Part IX. Board of Trade EjTTEKTAISMEN'T. At the invitation of C.. S. Noble the members of the Board of Trade visited the farms of the Nobln Foundation at: the Cameron lianch cast of Lethbridge during the harvest season. After driving around tho farms the patty inspected the plant installed for transporting, the crop. These ingenious arrange-- ments provide means for dropping the grain. from the. higft north bank of the .Old Man Hiver down -wire ferry, and so into as enormous bin, from which, it ilows iilto the'wagons that carry it to Chin station, about 20 miles. of Lethbridge. After this inspection the. party was hospitably entertained by Mr. Noble and his staff. The ladies of the Women's Civic Club'-of the Bowel" of Trade gave their willing aid to the City officials in entertaining the Canadian. Manufacturers Association on their visit Here, the Lethbridge and Coaldale Automobile Clubs having :pre- viously taken the visitors .around the district. On the occasion of the Western Canada Irrigation Asso- ciation's meeting, the ladies' and the Auto Club gave similar help, and the ladies of Coaldale provided refreshments for the party, which was conducted by members of the Coaldale Com- merciul Club, when they rested during the afternoon for a while at the Hamilton's delightful garden. FINANCE AND MEMBERSHIP. The membership is now over two the .sub- scriptions have been sufficient to carry on the current business for, the year and to pay the Secretary's salary. The total ex- penditures for the year amounted to MEETINGS. The business of the Board is., transacted weekly lunch- eons of the and the members generally _ also attend these meetings-. General meetings are held from, and business of particular importance is there dealt with- ..L; Early in the year, owing to his transference to another post, the Board lost the. Brymn'er as several years'. ,t THANKS. Your President desires to record his special thanks to' C. JF. Jomioson, Vice-president; to W. H.

THE LETHBIUDGE DISTRICT. A Description. The commercial activities of Lethbridge are based upon agriculture and coal. The population Is and apart from those living In the City directly concerned -with coal mining, the rest of the population Is concerned with the collection and market- Ing of agricultural produce, and In the wholesale, and retail distri- bution of the needs of the rich country surrounding the City up to a radius of 100 miles or more, and In financing the business. o( that part of Southern Alberta. For instance, the largest wholesale agricultural implement warehouse In the province is in Lethbridge, and there la no other City in Western Canada that has a greater business with coal mining centres; for, in addition to mines within a seven mile radius of the City which produce themselves 4000 tons or more dally In the. busy season, the geographical position of Lethbridge makes it the distributing centre for the great steam coal: mines in -the Crow's Pass which have a production of over .-tons ,a year.' The agricultural activities of the sur- .roupding country; are Sneni. Quality of wheat is grown, a- well as oats, rye and barley on the grain farms. The irrigated, farms, covering 'about: acre's, produce alfalfa hay, giving ;friiir to five tons'per'acre annually with'Unfailing regularity; while timothy hay makes IVs tons 'to the .acre, and u variety of other produce Is. also grown under i.-rlgation, including potatoes and vegetables..... The climate'', to the City .and' District. Is very livable; lying towards the'south-western edge of the great plains area of Canada, and in the lee of the Rocky Mountains, there are no fierce heats in the summer months, and even- the warmest day Is followed by a cool night. The mast delicate garden are hardly ever touched by an unseasonably late or early frost. It is seldom that a cold spell of longer than a week or ten days comes at one time; during the winter, the temperature rarely falls below 20 degrees below zero; such cold spells are always followed by mild weather around or above freezing point, owing to the action of the Chinook winds. The only drawback to the climate appears when these winds blow hard In the early winter or late spring. Production of wheat has run at high as 70 to the acre1, when In 1015 with favourable rainfalls the avenge yields over the whole 100 miles surrounding Lethbridge was around 60 bushels per acre. Occasional really dry seasons hare to be con- tended with, and for this reason "summer fallowing" every alter- nate year is being recognised as desirable; by this means the moisture of two seasons la made available for one crop. liesldcb tho cattle am! cheep raised on the cultlvaUd lands. large numbers are carried on prairie pastures, with llfbt feeding during the winter months. Much to the astonishment of living on tho prairies at lower olovalloiiK where the cold Is morn Intense, and of farmers accustomed to climates that have slaet and rain during tho winter, live stock in the Lethbrldge district can remain out of doors the winter through, and hones, cattle and sheep rarely seek such shelter as is provided. A climate such as this has proved to be the most useful in Western Canada for the growth of crops under irrigation, and in tha splendid results achieved In an experience of nearly 20 years on the lands irrigated there is a widespread demand for further supplies of irrigatton water. Fortunately this Is available from the streams riling in Rocky Mountains and (lowing In volume at such altitudes as to reader easy the diverting of these rivers, and making it readily possible to convey these waters in tho canals along the higher ruiges, so that they may be spread over, the great and lortlla plains at lower elevations. G The LoihbrhH'o Northern Irrigation District formed by tha farmers to be benefited, is now in position to proceed with the construction of irrigation works which will bring acres of their lands under irrigation. Tho cost of the works will bo about and tlio farmers know that they will flnd the investment very profitable, for the lands now irrigated actually produced crops iu 1919 that brought gross returns, for that one year of per acre, ami in 1920 per acre, Other irriga- tion works 'will be constructed later: there is water available for, roundly, acres over and above the now irrigated, and the acres in the Lethbridga Northern. Bank clearings give a good general Index to the volume ot b-slness in Lethbridge, and these are the figures for seven years: 1914.............................. 1915 1917 .1918.............................. 1919.............................. 1920 The principal exports of the district show annual averages seven years as follows: Coal................................. Wheat and other grains Alfalfa and hay Live stock Wool................................ 750.000 Yearly average There is plenty of amusement for the City population ot IAI'J- bridge and for the visitors from the country, both in summer iiirl winter. The Gait occupying the area of about four City blocks, are right in the centre of the business part of the town; during the spring, summer and autumn they are ablaze with color. The spacious lawns are attractive, and the whole park is encircled with trees that provide shady and cool retreats. The Henderson Lake can he reached by a ride ot about a in the street cars, and swimming, boating and sailing .inil other amusements can indulged in. There are otlior Parks and Bowling Greens as well as attractive spots down iij the valley of. the river which flows past the city. There are several "Movey" and Vaudeville .Theatres, as -well as a fully equipped Majestic Theatre: facili- ties are provided for all indoor sports at the Y.'M.C.A., a swimming pool, open summer and winter, being available there. AutomobilisU are interested in the fact that Lethbridge Is on the King's International Highway, which passes through the City on the way from Winnipeg; It takea from Lethbridge the pictur- esque route through the Rockies by the Crow's Nest Pass on easy with good roads to Cranbrook, B. thence southward to Spokane, Wash., and westwards to Vancouver. Side trips may be made from Lethbridge to the Canadian National Park a1. Waterton Lakes, a run of 95 miles, and also to tho TJ. S. Glacier National Park, on a 102 mile run. For commercial traffic and other tourist routes, the railway services east, west, north and south are convenient, with three alternative routes to the United States. The railway position of Lethbridge causm a great grain and coal traffic to flow through the railway yards, and correspondingly the wholesale and retail supply distribution area over which the mileages into and out from Lethbridge provide most economical distribution Is very large. Mrs lama Peach SHOOTS UP THE DANCE By J. S. K makes the cork go "ping" like a rifle bullet. I noe. It's a kill or cure mixture, if taken internally, but by bathing forehead with it, the same results are obtained as when you send to .Maple Creek. Only you do not have to say to the expressman, "Are you -share this is the rite address." That's an old'stall, the express man knows you have been sitting at the window watching for him ever since the train cum in. This is not digression, I took a bot- tle of that cough medicine to the dance I placed my coat safely on the floor, but Katy tripped and the cork blew out with a "Bans" just as George Honk stepped through the smoke at They thought the entrance.

I said thanks I thought you were trying to make an adhesive plaster out of my remains. I then went to the waiting room to adjust my plumage.
