Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 23, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HBRALD WEDNESDAY, JUNE 23; IMS .ttbe e Blbcrta DAILY AND WEEKLY. KATES: Oatly, delivered, per yenr Daily. by nail, per year 7 mill, per yenr. 8.00 TELEPHONES; Office ]252 Editorial Office 12S1 W. A. John TorranM llanazlnj Director Business Manager ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR A cursory view of tile war Bituauon us indicated by yesterday's dispatches shows that, while the Russians are admitting the capture of Lembers by the Germans is imminent and that they appear to be unable to resist the onrush o! the Teutonic hordes, yet in other theatres of war the positlou o the Allies is satisfactory. For th first time since last (all the effort of the Allied forces in norther France to drive the Germans entire- ly off French soil, appear to be pro- ceeding with signal success. The trL luendous conflict now waging in th vicinity, of Arras, it is believed, wil ultimately decide the fate of the ter ritory now held by the Germans, bu KraduaHy and surely being wreste from their grasp. The cost is great however. The entire front between the two vasi armies is said to bi strewn with groat numbers of dead o Both, sides. The casualty lists will b heavy, but the'advantages to be TTO are of vast importance. In Gallipoli, the fighting continue: to be strenuous, with slight advantage for the Allies. Along the Italian fron the Austrians have been unable to check Ihe advances of the Italians. Keep discing oui Ihe weeds. Tho Wnlkervllle, outrage, proves tlio urgent need of Home Guards. Every community may havu enemies in its midst, and should be prepared to defend itsolf. One of the practical results of the war is the suspension of daily Press reports of weather forecasts in Great Britain, due to the part played by th aerial fleet of the enemy. Since Apri iS79, weather forecasts have beer available for circulation through tin medium of the daily Press, but frou May 1 last these have been no longe supplied by the British Meteorologies Office. These regulations apply als to tho allied countries, which care- fully abstain from publishing the Brl tish observations. HICKEDUPIN FOR TUB VUSV MAN MIXED FARMING IS ON ADVANCE Jfany fanners throughout the coun try have not lost faith in mixed farm ing "any more than they might have lost faith in grain growing as a re- EUU of the conditions which existec In 1914. A dry year is not any. more advantageous to stock raising than ii Is to grain, growing. The absence o; feed last year aid much to set back the mixed farming movement. Farm GTS could not afford to buy any hay and other feed at the high prices were asked, and consequently they were forced to sacrifice a lot o stock, more especially hogs and milk cows. However, the farmers did noi dispose of all of their hogs, and as a result this year is going'' to see iarge increase in the number of hogs in this southern part of the province over the number that farmers bad in the fall of last year. Dairy farming is also becoming more general' amongst the farmers, even as far distant as from ten to twelve miles from the railroad. Nearly erery farm has its dairy cow, but it is not very profitable to go i ------fnr- butter, making or the shipping of cream when the distance from the rail road is very In the' country east and west of Milk Hirer there are farm ers who are bringing in cream twice a "Veek and shipping It to Calgary and Lethhridge creameries, and as dairy farming expands in that country, it Vill not be long before there are Creameries at places like Milk River and Warner.- One fanner who is ten miles east of Milk River reports that bis-'present revenue from the sale of a Calgary creamery is a.monthi and this amount of money, ,lie' is sufficient to operate the the present time. There would be more dairy farming throughout this south country if the farmers had the capital to procure the.cowR. The Lethhridge Board of Trade's, plan to assiat the farmers in .the district tributary to this city ap- peals to farmers aK over the country, and if it could be.extended to .cover more territory, it would be utilized by hundreds of farmers. ;Another immeiate want that has tteen impressed upon the people time and again, and is growing in Import- ance daily, Is a cold storage plant at SLethb ridge. As it is now, there Js no steady market for eggs and butter. The production would he increased and the-prices would be more settled if a cold storage plant only existed in thii lection. -Farmers will tell you is one of the requirements of and that mixed farm ing wnl not be developed until there is a' cold storage plant at iLethbridge directed and operated by people the farmers a square deal TheTeJs'much: encouragement to be -X found'frpm a visit through the district homestead country" of ttic line of the C P R Cropmnerer looked better there, the ftrtien are cheerful, and these con- ditions, added to the alow but steady ctoreioplttent farming lead ua to. believe that-the future of this part southern Alberta IB assured.

His calculation is has ed on recent British returns show- ing, that on an average live men are wounded or captured tor every one iiiledl He estimates the enemy's cas- ualties at six wounded or captured for each man killed, because the Aus- trians have lost enormously more in proportion In prisoners than the Bri- tish. His conclusion is that "the enemy's potential manhood for actual lighting has probably been diminished within the first' year by nearly one- islf from all causes." The announcement that the new Lord Chancellor, Sir Stanley Buck- master, has been raised to the peer- ,ge. has given rise to some misunder- standing regarding- the relations be- ;ween the Lord Chancellor and th upper Hctase, points out the Toronto Globe. It is commonly supposed that must be a peer to preside over the deliberations of the House of Lords, )ut this is not the case. In fact, the Lord Chancellor is not hound to ac- cept a peerage, aSthough the custom las been so long established that it would be difficult to conceive of a lommoner -occupying ihe woolsack, xird iLoreburn once astonished the by declaring: "Where I sit is not part of the House, and I might sit even if I were not a member of he House."
