Xcxt week will see the sheep growers o'l Southern AJbnrta into the year's wool harvest. According to intormat-ion given the Herald this morning by Frank Colpman, business nianager'of the Southern Allierta Wool Growers Association, the big camp at Conrad svlll open during the fore part ot next week, and will continue open until 60,000 sheep, representing over 400,000 pounds of wool, are shorn. C. C. Boynton ot Great Falls is here to open up tlio Harvey Alachine shearing plant on, Chin Coulee, and several smaller camps will be opened up. It is likely that another large camp will be opened this year ut ISIiik River. Hay Knight will shear his large bands near lirooka. "Tlie clip promises to be very good," said .Mr. Colpman. "Moat of the sheep ranchers fed talrly heavily/during ihc winter and there was a .steady growth ot wool, so that the clips should turn out well." Speaking of the lamb crop Mr. Colpman stated that tho bands wliicli lambed in April did about 20 per cent, better than those which lambed during May. Tlie percentage ot dry ewes this year is rather higher than UHUal_ and this (lus J(ad its effect on tho percentage of lambs. Altogether however, Mr. Colpman thinks tho percentage is about the same as in 11117. The early lambs are In good condition, and the sHeop on the whole arc In somewhat better condition than tlicy were at shearing season a year ago. AMERICAN BAGS ANOTHER GERMAN With American .\rmy in France, June 1.-Another Gorman airplane this morning was shot down 'by an American pilot in ail air battle, the Gorman crasUlng near St. Mihiol, in the sector to the north of Toul, according to unofficial information. The duel was one of a series of aerial combats that occurred this morning. The enemy machine brought down began falling after the American had poured a slroiini of bullets into the opposing piano. For example : In Canada from coast to coast, there are approximately 10,000 dealers wiio.sell shoes. They sell thousands and thousands of pairs of shoes each day. It surprising if among these thousands of business transactions' some mistakes or misunderstandings did _ not occur. ^ Now then, when something goes wrong with your purchase, wliat is your attitudtf .towards your dcalci'?. In most cases, of course, the basis of adjustment is evident,' and most dealers in Canada arc quite ready to give prompt attention to reasonable claims. That is the understanding on which all business-should be aone. If you buy a suit and a sbam rips or any other little thing goes wrong, you do not ask or desire a new suit, but merely have the trouble repaired. Are you equally reasonable, aboufSnoes?, Do you make dcinands on your shoe dealers which in comparison witii other business would _bc^ unreasonable or excessive ? Do you fully realize that footwear nas to stand the roughest treatment of any wearing apparel, dnd is oftentimes subject to actual abuse and rough usage? All reliable manufacttircrs stand fully behind their dealers in cases, of reasonable claims arising from chance defects of workmanship and material. Rut if you force your dealer to make allowance for a claim that is unjust, he has to stand the loss. Appreciate the fact that your retail shoe dealer wants your trade, and that he wants to nnve you consider his store a pleasant and satisfactory place to shop. He wants to be just, even at financial loss to -^himself. So the next time you have a complaint ,or a re-adjustment to'bring to his attention, why not be sure that your claims are well founded and' that what you ask him. to do i| reasonable. Be fair to your dealer. Whtn you tee the A. H. M.' trade mark on a shoe, you know that not only is that mark an endorsement by the largest shoe concern in Canada, but that being the product of a highly organized industry, the shoe you are buying represents the utmost in value, ttyle and wearing qualities w^ic/i can be obtained at the price.
