SPLENDID OUTLOOK IN SOUTHERN ALBERTA. .\ll Southern Alberta was visited by .a good rain and sleet storm on Wednesday night and Thursday, and ever since we have not heard a word from the pessimists who had been , prophesying a year of drought. Southern Alberta needs more rain than fell Wednesday to produce a . .crop this year, but from what we havg experienced to date this month, we,believe the outlook is good that we will get It. There are none of the usual. .Indications of a . dry season, and that, at least. Is promising. And-It weather conditions do continue favorable throughout the growing season. Southern Alberta Is going to produce the greatest crop In its history. On the Lethbrldge railway district there will be almost ! 2,000,000 acres,in.crop. This Is an Im-i mense area. In 1915, on an area of 1.-j SPOJOOO acres we produced nejrly ; 50,000,000 bushels of grain, mostly ( wheat, of which 38,800,000 bushels ' were marketed before Septemjjer 1, i 19IC, That this great record will be beaten this year la the. hope .of every ' Southern/Albertan who \i8 anxious that this district 'continue'" to do Us ahare ot feeding the Allies. / DECLARES Alli)E>RICANS ;TALK TOO MUCH. Honest confession Is.good for the I soul. At least, that Is what one , : would take from reading an opinion ; advamred by the Pittsburg BIspatch ; that the .Americans talk too much. It . Is a tact which tew Americans will i deny. The Dispatch sizes the Amerl-- can tendency up this way. .Major General B, D, Swinton, credited with being the Inventor of -the /'tank," and who, as "eyewitness" for V the British �staff, roported the earlier battles in France, has addressed a '^..few irieijdjy worda to Amerleaps that seen) needed at �Washington, ; "Oni thing you .Americans must 4o," he Bfiyi, "&nd that is not talk so niudU alioiit jroup war preparations. I see no\v some talk about buildlni; a gun fo shoot JOD miles. Well, if you $Mll(|, wch a gun, build It, but dop'i tdjlf pbbut It. The same Is true about your wlrplwe iirogram. Let tlio Gor-mans have-their first taste when ihoy -.see your, nlr lleets In. 'the ali ovej-�their jines," General Swinton pi-aoticos what M ':/*Iii'eachBs. The first theGermftus ' ; jifliew ot his "tanks" was when tlioy '""came waddling across No Man's Land ' 'acatterlPK death and destruction as they Jijtnbered tor'Wiircl- 3o with the; QMwant. The; - did- not advertise WHAT IS THE COST OF .THE GARBAGE TRUCK? vMayor Harflle having failed tie yet to give the public any idea as to ,the cost of operation ot the new'garbage truck for its first uiontii. Tiie Herald might venture to do a little figuring on Its own account. The Herald will | be glad to have the mayor correct, the figures If they are wrqng. and I to give the right ones. For instance. The Herald notes that it requires three men to mann the tiuck. This means at least 110 a day for labor. In addition to this, by present prices and coets, it must require at least $3.50 a day for gasoline and oil. That makes a total of �1S.50 a day. It, as the mayor believes, the truck will pay for itself in a year, this means an extra amount added on to cover this cost. The truck cost $4,-300. There are 300 working days in the year, roughly speaking. This meane a charge ot $14 a day, bringing the total cdst ot the operation ot the truck to $27.50 a day. The old' system ot garbage collection required four horses and carts at a total cost ot $24 a day. But the new truck takes the place ot only three ot these carts, so that the cost of the one horse and cart still required to do the �work, would bring the cost of th^ present system up to ?33.60 a day, or $9.60 more than the old system. But Mayor Hardle has ordered a new body for the truck. In the hope that the truck wlU then be able to do ,the work of all four carts of the old system. In this case, the new system would cost $27.30 a day, or $3,50 more than the old system, that is, of couree, figuring tho cost of the truck to bo cleared.up in one year. But if the cost ot the truck was spread over for three years, it would reduce the dally cost to'$23.25, or just about the coat ot tho old system. And this Is not figuring in the cost of a new set ot tires, which would be necessary surely in three years and which would mean another $400, Then there aro other repairs to bo counted upon.
