THE LBTHBRIDGE -j_________..........-......-j..m-........ DATLT HEIXAID WEDNESDAY, JULY 4, 1*17 <*PICKED UP IN* PASSING FOX THE BUSY MAN THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The resumption of the offensive by the Russians has created the greatest enthusiasm both among their own people at home and among those of the allies. And the offensive has been ot the most spectacular character. Russian troops with regenerated hopes and ambitions of the true democratic kind, have attacked with great Vigor along the Galician front, making considerable progress and capturing nearly 20,000 prisoners. Their advance has been chiefly in the neighborhood of Brzenany, south of Lem-berg, in the vicinity of the great advances made In the earlier days of the �war when the Russians penetrated into Hungaria. There is every indication that the Russians are iti a position now to keep up the new drive, both with regard to men and munitions. On the western front fighting is still proceeding about Lens, the encircling movement being continued with success. DONT WORRY ABOUT THE HAIL STORM. Reports from the district visited by yesterday evening's hail storm indicates that while it covered a fairly large area, the total damage will not seriously affect our 1917 total yield. The grain is too young yet for hall to destroy It outright. In this we were much moire fortunate than in 1911 when the big storm came in August when the crop was almost ready for the binder. There isn't much doubt that yesterday's precipitation accompanying the hail will do in the main more good than harm. There were many fields in the country east of the city that were badly in need of rain. The dry spell was causing anxiety. The weather ^s broken now, and the outlook immensely brighter. Altogether we haven't very much to grouse about. As a matter of fact Southern Alberta in the past three years has been blessed with crop sea-sona such as no other part of the American continent enjoyed. Let us bt thankful. WATER TON PARK SHOULD BE DEVELOPED. While the present is not the proper time to spend much money on tho development of Canada's park system, nevertheless it is the t'tne when a broader policy in connection with our national playgrounds should be drr.wn up so that when the proper time does come, there will bo a plan to work to which wljl result in making our parks as attractive to Canadian people as U.S. parks are to the American people. < Southern Alberta should be interested in the development of our parks far to the southwest lios tho Waterton Lakes park which should be to Lethbridge what Banff is to Calgary. Waterton Lakes is a beautiful spot but it is in its Infancy so far as development to make it attractive goes. Some arrangements must be made to get the people there and to give them service whey they nro in the park. With Glacier park on tho south of the line, the two form an international park of which feature much could be made. Glacier park offers Canada a splendid suggestion as to the means which might be employed to popularize Waterton Lakes park. During the" spring, the Canadian government parks service had lecturers on the road in an effort to popularize our park system. That is a move in the right direction. We hope that they will not overlook Waterton Lakes in their effort to build up the system. With the right kind of direction and with encouragement to some hotel concern to give park visitors tho service they demand. Waterton can be made as popular as any park iu Canada. Incidentally the people of Leth-bridge should boost for it at every opportunity. Its proper development means much to this city. Never mind about what the hall did to your spuds. They'll come along alright. And look what the moisture will do for our wheat crops. Nothing at all to worry about. W. It. Lee. a well known old timer of Calgary, died from typhoid fovcr.

(Head Office  Winnipeg) Alberta Branch, Macleod Block, Edmonton, or write to W. A. Davit, Alberta Block, Lethbridge. The Russian beer has come out of his hole. The Huns have been trying to make him think it was winter for a long time, but he wasn't to be fooled all tho time. If they will only keep the good work up it will mean much towards cementing the various factions of their population so that Russia will come out of the war a true republic and 100 years advanced over her state in August, 1914. Blame Only Tfourself Iforf Touchy Corns I REMEMBER, I REMEMBER PUTTING IT SQUARELY UP TO CONTROLLER HANNA. The choice of W. J. Hanna as food controller is view by some journals with a certain measure of suspicion. The Toronto Telegram hinted strongly bout the appointment of a corporation lawyer to such a position when he was named. But they are not leaving him any loophole to escape doing bis duty. In a recent editorial they put It squarely up to him as follows: Canada will be disappointed if Hon. W. J. Hanna does not instruct the people in the virtue of grabbing less of the nation's food. Canada will be still more grievously disappointed if Hon. W. J. Hanna does not instruct the flour mill interests, the cold storage interests and the packing house interests in the virtue ot grabbing less of the peoples' money. Flour mills, packing houses and cold Storage warehouses are not morally entitled to make more money in war time than in peace time. The agencies that are engaged in the distribution Ot food should be protected against lander. Tho people to whom these agencieg distribute food should be protected against extortion. Publicity would disclose the exact profit made in flour mills, packing houses and cold storage warehouses. High priceB would not embitter people who are now maddened by tho suspicion that these high prices are due to manipulation, not to the operation of natural laws. Tho true way to protect tho producer against slander and tho consumer against actual robbery is for Sir Robert Borden, on tho initiative of Hon. W. J. Hanna, to servo notice somewhat as follows upon all agencies employed in thu distribution of food. Controllers of flour mills, packing houses and cold storage plants need not expect, to get rich out of increased prices for food. The average profit per annum for five years previous to the outbreak of war is the maximum of profit that thesfc industries will be allowed to retain in war time. Every cent above that maximum will be taken into the treasury by the government. You may just well let the prices stay down and keep' the money in the pockets of tho consum-. era as put up the price* and have the i proceeds of these high prices diverted (Canadian Courier) I remember, I remember, The house where I was born; The little window where the sun Came peeping in at morn.

NTELLIGENT economy in tne kitchen can do much to prevent the threatened world famine-can counteract the effect of high prices- and can replace growing debt with systematic saving. Careful investigations show that before the war the average British family wasted 25% of their food-and we Canadians were even more extravagant. This waste is not in a few big things, but in many little ones, each, we used to think, too small to bother about-such as careless peeling of vegetables and fruit-failure to make good use of dripping and "left* overs"-and such others as will occur to every thrifty housekeeper.
