Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta MONDAY, MAY in; 1010 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE C. Limbcrg, Driver, and P..

Pullotti, Ills mechanician, leading llio field in I the IBtll lap 0( the J 50-mile race for the Metropolitan trophy, crashed Into a guard rail on the Shoepshead Bay track this afternoon. Limbers, who hnd been taking the turns near the very top of the high Baucer track, apparently lost control of ills car the bend at a. speed of more than 100 miles an hour. Both men were catapulted 100 feet over the rail and crushed to the ground about 30 feet below. The driver was impaled on an upright I piece of timber and was killed in- stantly. Pallotti died an the way to the Coney Island hospital. Machine Bursts into Flames The machine, one of three French I bars Imported for the race by Harry i B Harkness, crumpled .under the im- i pact and hurst into flames. The bla- i xing car clung to tile rail as the other I drivers flushed past without slacken- ing speed, ignorant of the fate of their fellow racer. A flash of flame aiid a cloud of smoke told the spectators that an accident had happened but as it occurred at the far turn of the two- mile saucer few realized that it marked a tragedy. ibiniberg's wife was in the grand- stand. As the other cars dashed by she missed her husband's machine and realized that he was the victim of the accident. An attendant escort- ed her from the stand and an automo- bile carried her to the hospital, as she was told Limbers had been token there. Not until she reached there did she learn that, he was dead. Few of those in the stands knew until the race was nearly over that two had lost Uieir lives. Rickenbacher is Winner Eddie Rickenbacher was an easy winner of the trophy in one hour .13 minutes and 31 seconds, an average of DO.311 miles an hour for the 150 miles. Jules Devigne finished second and Ira Vail third. After the accident Dario Resla i forged -ahead and led until the 144th mile, when engine trouble forced him to quit. Halph Mulfonl led in some of the early laps, but was forced to quit by trouble with his engine. A new world's record was estab- lished in the 20-mile race by Johnny Aikeu, -who won this event la 11 minutes 1 seconds, Lirnberg's Career Omberg was a long distance run- iier, and a bicycle arid motorcycle rac- er before automobile racing became popular.

Sterling is a 17-year old school Cardston, Jlay Creel' Lodge, I.O.O.F., is making history and gathering in strength and importance since its inauguration hist year. On Thursday evening the members of the lodge held a social, which was so well attended that there -would have been hardly standing room In the hall if more had been invited. The open- ing amusement was a whist drive con- sisting of thirteen tables; the winners were Miss Nan Syltes and Mr. Doug- las Oiand; evidently school teaching and house building lead to activity of the mind which.bear fruit on im- portant occasions. After the distri- bution of the prizes, supper was serv- ed, and when the inner man had been strengthened, V. V. Christie, N.G., an- nounced the most serious business of (CONTINUED ratal FHONT PAGE) a world wide shortage of wool that the situation is not likely to be alter- ed even if the war stops and normal rade relations- are resumed. Aus- tralia has lost some sheep due to drouths, millions have been depastured in Europe during tlie course of warfare, and the stock in this country has been greatly reduced owing to the general liquidation pre- ceding the inauguration of the demo- cratic administration, and consequent tariff changes. Flockmasters fn the American west are sitting back contented. The buy- ers from the east cannot pound values this year with the excuse that the imports of fleeces have increased the supplies and made a decrease in price necessary to do any business. The mports are far from being one quarter enough to supply American demands, and the supplies must come from the backs of sheep in America. "With this knowledge the growers are not any too anxious to sell their fleeces un- less they are paid a good price. Some of the buyers, scenting the shortage, got out west early and contracted a few million pounds on the sheep's back, but f doubt if 25 per cent, of the demand met this sup- ply. Wise shepherds bfere are holding against all offers until after shearing, as many believe that prices will ad- THE FAMILY "Fruit-a-tives" is the Standby in This Ontario Home SCOTLAND, Out., Aug. 25th, 1913.

It might interest some to know that the May sales in London closed strong with an advance of from 10 to 20 per cent on Merinos and1 5 to 10. per cent on crossbreds. The .TRremiali Williams company recently purchased a million pounds in Idaho at close to 30 cents, and a large Montana clip went the other day at 32. Domestic; and bright fleeces ol! the better grades, such as 3-8 and quarter bloods, are bringing 40 cents in Ohio today. Tho Alberta wool is classed as territory, and graded as fine medium clothing, and at present prices is worth from 2S to 32 cents. Medium fleeces are about twice the value that they "were two ago, and any growers there have medium stuff, they can cal- culate that it will be worth 'in tho neighborhood oC 34 cents, as 17 cents was the highest price received two years ago if. I remember correct- ly. Wool won't it is handled properly, and it certainly will pay Alberta growers to hang on as loug-as they can. One Illinois breeder has three clips of wool stored away on his farm, and it is the best fine wool 'in. the cuntnij west, and he is going to make a killing on it. It won't pay: to accept the first offer this year, believo me, and 'I hope they can all hold. Banks in the west are advancing mon- ey to growers who aro not in position to hold, so that they can get the bene- fit of the higher prices that are bound to come. Yours very truly, C. M.

G.; Canon Mpwat, the chap- lain of the lodge, and Mr. Alberta Mor- ris. Sir. .Ward, who has been made D.D.G.M., was presented by his fel- lows with a beautiful collar decorated with the insignia of his new rank; and he was also very much complimented upon his energy and enterprise in he- ing the moving spirit in the building up and cementing together of this new lodge. Mr. Ward made a suitable reply and gracejully acknowledged tho favors received. A Presentation Canon Mowat, who is leaving South- ern Alberta to reside in England in the future, was next called upon to receive, a very 'pretty .wrist watch as a token of regard and esteem from his fellow lodgers, and then Mr. Al- bert Morris, who has been secretary of the lodge, and who 'is leaving to take up another business in Calgary, was presented with a smart pair of sleeve links suitably inscribed with Headquarters; Tug-of-War The tug-.of-war was in a by the headquarters heavies. Six straight pulls they made and were never -headed the wrong way. In the first draw "A" met "C" and "C" won, two out of three. Headquarters then met "D1 and set them down .in two straight.

The battery was bill- ed ,to put in a team but didn't come through. Boxer Wins Mile Run The mile run was a pretty exhib- ition' with five starters. McDonald, the Kipp boxer, went out in the lead and set a stiff pace. He was pass- ed, however, in the first half and trail- ed for some .time.

Thus ended a very successful gather- ing which was rounded out, and, we may say, thoroughly filled out, by the forethought of the ladies in providing such a bountiful repast which, by the way, was served by the men as though to the manner born.
