Fourth Avenue-Near Post Office. RAYMOND WILL HELP. Raymond, July 19.-Ray-  raond will hold no fair this  year. This was decided at a  meeting of tho directors held In  tho town hall last ovenlng.  The officials of the Agricul-  tural Society will devote their * time to making the stampede  at Lethhrldge a success.  FRIDAY, JULY 20, 1912 _ __i-i___�A E London, July 10.-Supplementing his talk on the military operations Gonoftil Maurice remarked: "I am told that in the United States the ordinnry man has got a general impression that whon any really stiff fighting Job is to bo done tho Englishman calls on the Australian, Canadian or Scotchman to take the van. This Idea Is being carefully fostered by tho Germans with the foolish Idea ot spreading dissension or dissatisfaction between tho branches ot the Anglo-Saxon race and they soon will bo trying tho late propaganda to push a wedge between Great Britain and tho United States. "As a matter of fact the greatest part of tho fighting slnco tho war was begun has naturally fallen to English troops-they are the largest part of the army and have borne the brunt of the work. The casualty lists show that the English regiments have fought just as gallantly and bravely and have lost as heavily as any regiment in the imperial army." PARDON SUFFRAGISTS. Washington, July 19.-President Wilson today issued pardons for the 16 suffragists who are serving a 60 day sentence In the workhouse at Occoquan, Va., for picketing in front of tho White House. Secretary Tumulty said the pardon must speak for itself and that the White House would have no statement to make of the president's reason for his action. GREAT (CoSTlVUED fROlf FltONT PaGB) the breweries for the manufacture of alcohol for fuel. The gasoline supply of the world is fast giving out. Alcohol will be the natural fuel to replace It. In fact in Germany it is now In large measure replacing gasoline. Alcohol can be made from unmarketable potatoes for about 25 cents per gallon if the potatoes are grown in large enough quantities to make It feasible. Spoiled grain can also be used tor the purpose. Western Canada offers great possibilities for the manufacture of the product, and the Lethbrldge brewery has much of the equipment standing idle. Gasoline is going to keep on advancing in price, so that before many years the manufacture of alcohol for commercial purposes will be an accomplished tact in this country. Investigate Tar Sands. The research council Is also Investigating practical means of reducing the tar sands in the Athabasca district in northern Alberta. There is an area of these tar sands there forty miles square running from four to ten feet deep. Canada produces no other tar except a^little as the by-product of some Industries. The sand and tar are mixed In the ratio of about nine to one. Obviously it would be Impossible to use the product if the sand had to be shipped, but if the sand can be extracted and the tar secured in a pure form, It opens up great possibilities in road making in the w6at. Tho task of finding a commercial method of accomplishing this result has been given to the University of Alberta and tho Mines Branch at Ottawa, and they are now working on it. These are a few ot the plans on which the research council is working, and Dr. McCallum explained them to the meeting in order to show the possibilities of our immense natural resources and the manner in which they inay be made to help pay for Canada's part in the war. The doctor showed how Canada had been lagging behind, as had the mother country, In the application of science to the speeding up of manufacturing and other Industries. Hundreds of Canadian chemists and other scientists had gone to the U.S. where research work in connection with the industries was much more closely connected up than In Canada or Great Britain. Canada must make use of these men, muBt train young men along these lines if she Is. to do her share after tho war. Germany will try to make the rest of the world pay her share of the war cost by grasping the trade which other countries might overlook as was the case In the dye industry before the war. Dr. Mc-Callum's Idea 1b that the Dominion must be as far as possible self-supporting. That Is the task the government has set him and his colleagues. On this trip the members of the council are just getting acquainted with the Industries and men of the country. But they are forming plans for further research work. They are also preparing for an Inventory of the natural resources of the country. One of their great aims Is to make the discoveries of the various departments of the government and ot the universities an open book to the Industries ot the country In order that the Industrial life of the people may be co-ordinated ztA that the most rspld advance may be made with the great natural resources at our disposal, � Every Day Brings Bigger and Better Business at RYLANDS' RUMMAGE SALE For tomorrow we have arranged an entirely new lot of Bargains.
