Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 11, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, JULY 11, 1918 THE LETIinniDGR DAILY HERVCfi �'AGE SEVEN LATEST NEWS OF LETHBRIDGE AND THE SURROUNDING DISTRICT i REASON FOR STOCK IN lOBEPANICKY ABOUT FEED "TUoro is no reason for farmers nntl Rtockmcn to bocoino panicky about tlio food situation," dcclnred A. K. Qunl-ly, tho district agont ot the provlnclnl Bovornniont today after having completed a tour ot his district for the purpoflo oi: making a special Investigation Into conditions in this regard. 'I undorstund that some stock owners are making arrangemonts to ship their stock out of the .country. .1 think that would be a very bad moivo ttt the present .time. If wo have rain this month, or oven the beginning ot next month, there will bo a great deal ot feed produced on cropped land. Unln within a month would aiso do wonders for the range. One has only to remember 1914 conditions to be aseured that anything in tho way of panic over feed conditions is absolutely unwarranted for several weeks yot." Mr. Qually admitted that there �would be very little hay cut in tho south country this year, and there will he a scarcity next winter. Hut ho also pointed out tliat to move Southern Alberta stock to Northern Alberta tor winter tcoding would bo very costly, tor tho reason that stock must be tod much more heavily and for a mucli longer period in tho north. Hay from the north could be shipped in and tod In the south to much better advant-ogo. He stated that tho provincial government is now getting In touch with the districts in the north where u good hay crop is hoing raised this year, and an endeavor will be made to put the southern ranchers in toucii with the northern hay districts so that thoy may arrange for hay for ship-mont to this district next winter. Mr. Fairfield of tho experimental farm is in ngrcomont with Mr. Qually on this matter, and urges tbn stock owners not to bo Btaniiicded. A Sheep Rancher's View. Tho shoepmon of tho dl.strict are taking full advantage ot the momitaln range this summer, and already ton largo band."! have been taken up. Mr. Hacking ot Magrath who, with Mr. Minor and Mr.-Chlpman, has just returned from placHig his sheep on the mountain range, told Tho Herald this morning the pivsture there was bettor this year than iaet. Mr. Hacking took his sheep to tho mountains last summer, saving his winter range. During the winter ho also ted his shcop llborally, about 150 pounds of huy to each sheep being tho amount. The result was that liis nheep sheared about nino pounds ot wool this spring, while his lamb crop was over 90 per cent. "It pays to toed," said -Mr. Hocking. ".My nclglibor,' Mr. Minor, bought alfalfa hay last fall and ted his sheep through the winter, feeding a llttlo grain when necessary, and his ehoep averaged within a shade of ten pounds of wool this spring. That is nearly three pounds more than the average where tho sheep are not liber ally ted during the winter, and at tho present price of wool that means about $2.00, which is more than the cost of tho extra winter teed. And besides tlie la?nb crop is so much ho;i vler that there is no question as to whether it pays to toed." Not Worrying. Mr. Hacking is not worrying about winter toed for his sheep. Ho looks for plenty ot rain later to bring along the crop so that It will make lots ot feed in thn fields this fall, while the range grans will be greatly benefitted as ifwns in 191-1. CAPT.BEEMAN TELLSOFWORKOF THE RED CROSS 'i'ho tolUnvIng most Intereating letter on tho work of the Red Cross at tho front, liaa been received by It. W. Ilradshaw, ot Magrath, from Capt. Heaman. the well known doctor from Mograth: France, July Ifll, 1918. H. W. Uradsbaw, Esn., Magrath, Alberta, Canada. My Dear II. W.: Some two months ago when life was not as strenuous here as it has been Tor tho past few weeks I started to write you a more or less formal and elaborate letter about tills end ot tho lied Cross work. This letter was prompted by reading an account !n an old I.othbridgo Herald of ono of your meetings and the work you have been doing la the Red Cross lino. I tried to make this letter elaborate enough that you'might read it at one of your meetings and five the people some idea ot how the Red Cross supp'les were used over hero and how greatly they v,'ere appreciated. I thought that .1 might well do so aw I have now seen all phases of our work hero, from base hospital to front trenches, jvnd from one end of thn line to the other. However, the day I started my letter it was not fin- ished, then things bGciiiuo lively over here and it passed from niy mind for 0, few days. When I did think of it I had no time, bo It wuh ijhssihI along. Ultimately my kit Uhk received a soaking in the rain and the letter was dostroyod. So now that I am having ;i few days off duty-lying in'bed with a mild attack ot trcncii fever- 1 wisli to express to you personally a word of appreciation for the wnrk that the Red Cross has done and lor (lie work that your branch has dtmiv Vin- tho thousands of small braii;lic!i worlilng throughout Canada niiiko up tho enormous fitock of materiiil that wo use hero dally. You people in Canada work and give and in only a general way do you learn ot tlu! i�siilt or receive thanks for your efforts. Here wo draw upon the iictiiimilatod bull: ot your work and gifts and we seo tho expending of thom.^ A clearing station horn in Franco could hardly be run without the help of the Red Cross. 1 am sate in saying that fifty per cont. of our supplies are drawn from ili.' ited Cross.

Red Cross aJr pads euflo his Imck, etc. Then, as he beconies'able to eat, Red Cross delicacies tempt his appetite. Then ho goes to a base or stationary hospital via ambulance train, where lie is looked after and over 2."i per cent, ot supplies and equipment are ited Croes. If lucky, lie goes t i niighty, where he is still receiving Red ('ross comforts. With your usual love tor an argument, 1 hear you, 'Well, what does the governmenL supply? Why do they not supply these things?" Tlrey do supply tho shell-the grosrf material-the e.sscntials and that Is all. Probably i am wrong when I say the essentials, for without tho Red Cross we would lose thousands and thousands ot our cases, and untold suftei-Ing would result. It la the lilflo thing.? that count. You should ace tho difference in the men's faces wlien they are in u i.lean suit ot pyjamas, clasping a clean little kit bag in one hand and probably looking at a clean white handkerchief In tho other. They look like different men. Tlioso who stay at home and work and give can feel that (liey hnvo had a part in this terrible struggle as well as who huve-rrossed tlie pond. Tliere is much more that I Bliould like to say, but am not accustomed to' writing In bed and I question whether you can read it or not. However, liojie you will take it in the spirit iii which It Is sent, for Ood knows wliat we would do without Red Cross sup-plies over here. Trusting you and family are well, Vours sincerely N. T.

Harford, Bow Island, ;cT THIS YEAR That an average crowd of at least 2000 will attend the sessions ot the Chautauqua here from August 12th to 17th inclusive la the belief ot S. S. Dunham, convenor of the local committee, as expressed at a meeting of tho committee on accommodations held in the mayor's office this tore-noon. Mr. Le Moyne of the Chautauqua staff was here to make arrangements for the staging ot the entertainments, and discuss whether or not the Chautauqua should be housed this year in the Eckstorm auditorium, where it was held lact year, or -vs'he-ther tho tents provided by the circuit should bo used. It was felt that the tents would not be large enough, as tho seating accommodation is only 1200, so if the auditorium Is again available it will likely be used, and better acouatlo arrangements aV^II be provided. The Chautauqua program this year la very attractive, according to the representative hare today. Among tho feature speakers will be Edwin F. Tretz, who thrilled a largo audience in Wesley auditorium some weeks ago when he epolce on behalf of food conservation. Dr. Salem G. Bland, who has also boon hoard here, will be another of tho speakers. J. C. Herbs-man, who was heard to such good advantage here last year during the Chautauqiui is BtlU 'another 'speaker. Sorgt. GlbDons of the 3rd Canadians, who epent; several months in a German prison camp, and Dr. Y. Mlna-kuchl, a celebrated Japanese educator will also be on the program. The musical numbers are superior to those ' offered last year, so It looks as If Mr. I Dunham were not far- wrong In his estimate of (an average evening attendance ot 2000 people.
