Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 7, 1911, Lethbridge, Alberta Tiiesdaj, March 7,1911. THE LETHBRTDGE DAILY HERALD THE BUCK-EYE VOL. Lethbriclge, Tuesday, March 7, 1911. No. 8. Enjoying a Week's Holiday I've washed up the silver and dishes, I've made all the beds for the day, I've finished preparing tlie fishes She ordered tor dinner today; The floors have been swept, and the parlor, I polished its floor up to par, When breakfast was eaten, the rugs were all beaten, And now for a BUCK-EYE ci igar. I've polished the mirrors and dusted The cupboard, they needed it too, I've mended a chair that was busted, And blackened the range and the fine; Tve hooked up the waist of my missus, Who's shopping-she's off on the car, I've done the week's washing, I'll have no more joshing, It's me to the BUCK-EYE cigar. P. S.-If your wife IS a suffragette and a man-driver, be thanlcful. BUCK-EYE , ^ * IS still your own. WINTER HAS BEEN HARD ON LIVE STOCK Ranchers Find Cattle in Critical Condition - A I Scarcity of Feed Magrath, March fi-Reports comiiiK into town from the various ranches say that the cattle are in a critical condition as a consequence of thd're-cent snow storms. To make matters worse hay has been extremely scarce, in tact, more so than ever before in this district, Stockmen arc feeding their cattle just sufTicient to keep them alive. The straw stacks arc fast disappearing, showing that tlie condition has reached such a point that the ranchers are feeding straw as a last resort: The snow is melting fast and the prairies will soon be bare a'gain, providing there are no more storms. But when the snow has gone oft another serious condition confronts the stock owners. The prairie is practically without grass or teed of any kind The only thing for the cattle owners to do, as one remarked the other day, is to feed hay until the grass grows high enough tor the cattle to graze Ranchmen and their riders have been out with the cattle day and night Many of them have become snow blind tlirough long exposure The sheep men arc also experiencing more or less riimciilty One of Mr I-lnrker's herders nearly froze to death while out witli his flock a short time ago With his faithful dog he remained at his post [or over fit-teen hours, without a morsel to eat and encountering a cold, piercing wind, Whon ho was found by another herder his condition was frightful. l?is limbs were stiff and all power of sensible speech had left him. After much difficulty he was taken to the camp and treated as best his comrade could with the meagre means at his disposal. This little' incident shows that the storms have been very .severe and that conditions are in some instances worse than is generally reported However, the danger point has now been passed and the loss of sheep in this district is not very heavy considering the climatic conditions.
