Premier Zaimis has been asked to form a new cabinet.

Germans attacked in a new place near Rheims 'on the western front on Tuesday, hut were repulsed. The Russians are attacking the German lines on the eastern front with con- siderable success.

ALBERTA'S RECRUITING FIGURES PLEASING Figures published in yesterday's Herald setting forth the availabl number of men of military age in th Interesting, an dhow what Canada can do if th worst comes. Over Brltis and Canadian, born men of military age reside la Canada. Of these Cam da is put in khaki It should not be a hard task anu haye" not "doubt It .wi be consummated. The figures for Alberta and othe restern provinces however are th most. Interesting. Recent statistics o recruiting show that Alberta ha raised to date about men. Br tish and bom of mllitai the province numbered abou to the last census rhis means that we have almost ha] JUT available men of military age ir thakl.' It must-lie remembered how aver-, that a. lot of men in khaki in ills province are American born, ant .herefore are classed In the figuri riven in yesterday's report as foreign wra. But the statistics all go to show hat we have enlisted close to hal lur British subjects of military age earing m the province about Jritish of military age and over oreign horn men of military age. This 3 a most peculiar situation which has lot arisen in any other province In Canada and. is worth some study. Alberta has nothing to be ashamed f so far as her -recruiting record oesT and the figures "just given out onfinn that opinion the packers frequently phono first to know what the clubs have ready for sale. "At one said Mr. Tucker, "the packers told us the price that was ruling for the week and wo could take It or leave it. That is no longer the case. We havo a say in the price ow, and the packers have to coma to what we consider a fair figure. On reputation is so well established tha buyers know what sort of stuff we have to offer, and they bid us so much on board at shipping point. hnvp credit at the bank, and when eacl member brings in his hogs he is paid for them by check at the price the packer has bid, leas So cents per 10G pounds. Tha So cents is deducted to coyer, shrinkage in carriage. This usually more Than covers shrinkage balance left over is either applied to our reserve fund or dividei ti surplus profits among those sup plying hogs as the occasion calls for iVe are 120 miles from Toronto, he average shrinkage in shipping at hat point in spring and fal! is five or six pounds per hundredweight, and to Montreal six or seven pounds. In hot veather the shrinkage is a little wavier. said Mr. Tucker, in reply to a uesllon, "it has not ail been plain ailing with us. "When we first began iperations local drovers undertook to nit us out of business by paying fgher prices than tha market war- anted. to meet this cora- etition, and in doing so went about 300 in the hole. But we won out. We ave the field to ourselves now and, nstead of a debt of we have a urplus of about the same amount. Yhile piling up this surplus we have ecured good prices for our members, n the week ending May 27th we pro- ured for them on board cars, ver and above manager's fees, etc., and deduction for shrinkage. "We anally ship once a week, and on one ay we have had as many as five cars n one shipment." The price., received by the co- perative shippers in the last week of month was from 25 to 35 ceats bove the "country point" prices quot- d in the'Globe report for the same week. The Dalesman who is engaged is al- owed so much for each hog, cow or Kit handled. "For hogs the charge is 0. cents each, lor cows 75 cents and ess for smaller animals. He spends bout two days a' week in handling IB stock of the members, the rest of is time being spent on his farm. The above gives a very good idea f what may .be done by co-operative elling. Alberta farmers now have co- perative 'selling of grain. They can xtend their activities very much far- with good results to themselves. THE .SPIRITS STILL LEAD THE RISING WAVE." 'NTARIO LESSONS V FARM CO-OPERATION Co-operation among farmers is the ttnt of the times, speaking from a iral standpoint In "Western Canada is United Fanners are a strong in- itution, working all the time towards and making good bead- ay. There is however always room .and new Ideas' are elcome.

The victory of the Liberals in the Nova Scotia general elections was quite expected. Even the fat mu- nition contracts handed out to Otta wa favorites; in Nova Scotia coul not overcome' the Liberal lead. Th Allison Incident is too re cent to'offset such things as mu nition contracts. If the city can find any way-to-dig up ?800, it should be used to help buy. the .proper, instruments for the 113th regimental band. The 113th is the first unit to go out from here with Lethbrldge'on its uniforms, and we not afford to let this opportunity slip to keep the boys to the fore. Am we can. use the other instruments iere very nicely. "As a country Canada seems to developed, the faculty of dispos- ng of her surplus wheat at the lowest iossible said Mr. W. Saaford Cyans in his address on Canada's Wheat Problem In Edmonton. This s a sad state of affairs in a country 6 on the wealth produced from her grain crops. It. behooves very man in the Dominion to help to vercome this state of affairs, and no Evans' address tonight will elp greatly to set the facts properly efore the people. Every man in jethbridge should be at the Y.M.C.A. .ohight to hear Mr. Evani. The Toronto Telegram suggests that Canada wants daylight saving as a ational scheme we should "see Alll- on.w' Maybe Lethbrldge daylight sav- ng fans would employ Allison to pre- all upon the city fathers to introduce icheme here. Here's the Toronto elegram idea; Why not "see Allison" and request e Hon. Col. J. .Wesley of. that ilk have the Borden government enact daylight saying bill applicable to he whole country? Assuredly CpL.Alliion would be en- tied to a commission on all the day- ght he saved for the Canadian na- on instead of pittances of er pittance on a fraction of the the Colonel saved to Britain nd her allies. Canada's too brief summer would e lengthened by thirty days; Sep- ember would be made a summer month by the simple, common-sense ction of bringing, the beginning of le working day an hour nearer sun- ise, the, end an hour further away rom sunset.
