Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 7, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta
TUESDAY, JULY 7, 1914 THE LETHR'RIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE FIVE SECRETARY Conditions Not, So Bad as Some Reports Would Indicate He Declares The south country is not anywhere ficar as badly off as lias been reported according to Secretary Finley of the Associate Boards of Trade, who re- turned yesterday from a trip to Sweet Grass, where he accompanied Joseph .Wacdonald for the Fourth of July cel- ebration of the residents along the boundary. "There are signs of it having been very dry in many places, but there will be a fai.'iy good crop in most of the districts south of Lath said Mr. Finley. "There, are fine fields of grain around New Dayton, Warner and Milk River, and particularly east I of Milk River, and there has been lots (of rain throughout the homestead country, along the Saskatchewan bor- der. South of Milk River, there is IUH likely to he a very large amount of grain harvested; in about all that obtainable will be some feed. Is the condition alt around Coutts and over into Montana. They have seen it raining many days miles away, but have had only a small shower or two. But they usual Fourth of July shower Saturday afternoon, and It was, a dandy, continuing through most'of the night. This will assure them a good feed crop, and some of them iWl.ll get their .seed i money back. Around Warner to the east there has been lots of rain, arid the crops are looking good, and just i east of New Dayton there are fields that look like what, is usually called a 25-bushel crop. But they will need more rain yet-to make it in lots of these pluces. "One of tiia nioiit gratify ing reports I heard all along was that the home- ateadery wore coming into their own this fall, for .the; entire homestead country east ijf the; Cqiitts line lias had lots of -rain, arid-the. crops are re- ported excellent.' "There'Is-'marked increase in the iiuantity of potatoes in this year over last year in the country between hem and Coutts, but there will he need for all of them for the local markets. Poultry, too, ;is getting more atten- tion and every farmer has a good lot of chickens this summer, and have a good income from them when marketed this'fall and winter. Turlt eys are not as-plentiful us a year ago while ducks are very scares. are not as plentiful ail along the line as they have'been, and'.are likely to command a higher price in the mar kets shortly, in are going up a little every .week now. 'I made for the ship- ment to the Lethbridge public market of a large quantity of choice buttei nd fresh eggs regularly throughout the summer and, fall, and-the people of the south country are already be- ginning to appreciate the advantage Lhls market win" he to them. It will be but a short time before they will iave the time come into market themselves, instead of sending tlieii irodncts, and there, are some forming co-operative marketing associations, so that each member takes a turn at oing to market and selling the pro- ducts of the ones in the association. This should he adopted everywhere, as it 'will have a. tendency to Interest more farmers to supply the market and satisfy .the. consumers they are getting their produce direct from, the 'aruiers." THE SPOT FOR Oil Campany Working Quietly the Lundbrek Field-- Derrick Erected in Travers, Alta., July was a Bhock to the people'here to iearn lhat .fTotn Turner-lost-his- life in th'o Hill- crest mine. His brother Will also loat ]iis life. These people bad-been gone from here for a year and a-half. "The C.P.R. agent, sold twenty-five ]ots here. Mr. Ar.not, the local agent, ihas sold two Mr. Roads, from near Champion, just completed a'well'for Mr. Van- liorne, getting plenty of water at 115 feet. He is now drilling for Mr. Erick- son. Most of the farmers have started since the recent rains. George Taylor's house burned down m Sunday morning. He had started rthe fire and Mrs..Taylor had gone out ;to feed the chickens. The oldest child came out, carrying the baby, say- ing the house was on iire. They were to save anything, and forty dollars in money was burned, too. They live about, teii-.iailes- north of town. Jerry Ricketts returned Friday from the norUvhaving'purchased 160 acres, and leased'the rest of the sec- tion, with plenty of water and. trees on it. They -will" live between El- mora Alta.ron .the G. T. P. railroad. On'our own elevator they have started cribbing now, and part of the lumber is here for the Ogllvle eleva- tor. Mr. Reynolds lias put up. a small harness shop on Main street. Ltmdbreck, July G. be the result of their enterprise, no one can accused -the i Kalier-Mackenzie people with noising themselves abroad, in their endeavor to strike oil. The same con set vat ive silence, which has prevailed from the very start of their operations, has caused a groat deal of speculation as to the. company's intentions, and more than one expression of surprise was heard during the last tew days, see a large ami businesslike der- rick fully erected on the site for.-their, first on Sec. 4, Tp. 8, R. 2, W. 5. Several of ma- chinery, too, wended their way to the scene of operations, and by what can be learned, it will only he a week or so before the second derrick is completed. Already the activities of this com- pany have caused more lhan a pass- ing flurry in leases, as a'large deal in township 6 was consummated nn Saturday last, at a fancy price per acre. It is with a lot of difficulty one lias to lean: of the Faiber people's doings, but it can be stated on good au- thority, that the drill will make its way. in the early part of this week, to that- part of the earth, which may mean riches for -the lucky ones. By the amount of money the syndicate are spending, they must feel fairly sanguine as to the ultimate outcome of their enterprise, as the machinery alone must have caused a large de- (crease in their bank account. This, together with the rest of the mater- ial of their operation, can only cause one to hope t-hat their1'virtue may have its reward, and that gushers will spring now, only sites can be seen. ULSTER WILL NOT COME IN'AT POINT :OF BAYONET London, July Edward' Car- son. the Ulster Unionist leader, ad- dressing a gathering of Unionists in South London tonight, declared that Ulster would reject fcny proposals, made by the government, placing a' Lime limit of any sort on her ei'chi- jton from Home Rule. ever we go into the Irish 'Parlia- Jie said; "we shall go in not at Jie point of the bayonet but of our own free will."
