Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 4, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta "^ONDAY. NOVEMBER 4. 1918 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERAUD PAGE Thhbh;. THAT SON-IN-LAW OF PA'3 Pa and Ma's Ide^^f What's Music is Slightly Different. By Wellington PROFITS Lethl)ri(lge, Nov. 1, 1918. Editor Lethbrldge Herald: Sir,-In\the past the Herald has always been dauntlessly. against all unlawful profIteerp of every'shape and form. In view of this I ask you to publish enclosed clipping taken from "The Qulde,"' showing the enormous profits made by some of the iriilllng trust during the present year. No doubt j-^u will remember that about a month ago the aforesaid tru.^t called a meeting in Winnipeg to which practically every miller in Canada hied himself. At that meeting they decided to increase the price of flour 50c per barrel. How badly they'needed the Increase, the 136% percent, profit on common stock owned by the OgHvie sharehold-- -ors will show. No doubt you also remember that '�whbn the pffce of wheat was fixed In ' Canada 'the Lethbrldge Herald came ' out "boldly with the statement that /fiour could be milled and sold retail for lolOO per hundred lbs., at a good pi'otit to the millers and retailers. The Ideal millers denied your statement/but that it was true the enclosed clippinif will show; If you could only see the books of the local milling concerns you would � find that their profits are not far be-, hind the Ogllvie Milling Co. Sincerely yours. . J. H. JACKSON. , Attached .Is the article from the 'Grain Growers'. Guide.. ;^^TJiat ,tl^Q,'duptry 'oL .> .:..;. ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? (Grain ' Grower's Guide). The introducers of poison gas in warfare have in certain ways a diabolic craft and subtlety in their methods. Seeing defeat inevitable, and knowing that invasion of Germany would be fatal to their dynaslic sys--tem of autocratic militarism, they endeavored a few weeks ago to secure tin armistice, feigning a sincare desire for "a just peace." .,, . Their real purpose was twofold. First, they wanted- to gain-time, and entangle the Allies in negotiations and p'ai them in a > false light, for the effect upon the Gorman people. '.Second, to weaken; if possible, the morale of Canada and the United States, so as to hamper the siiccess of the "Victory and Liberty Loans this fall. I \ , We Canadians at home, mindful ot our duty to the men at the front, must not let ourselves to be affected by this subtle poison gas blown out from Germany across the Atlantic to us. We must .not let ourselves be Infected by the mado-in-Germany germs lot loose to produce in us" a delusion that the war is as good as won,, and that we can slacken up, and that there is not as great a need of our buying Victory Bonds now as there was laSt year. There is greater need now than ev^ of buying Victory. Bonds, There is greater need than, everof'gtannch'and resolute � waf effort. ' Hear -Lloyd George:-' � ' Our people have always faced diffipult times with courage, and with endless readiness jfor, necea-sary sacrifice. It requires a dlf-.' ferent kind of resolution to go on � saving and lending -when the springtide of victory has begun to flow. It is therefore .well to remind ourselves thatit is .just as urgent for up to go' on. helping ; now as It was during the dreary months of Inarch, April and June ' of this year. There will be Uttle use in having^aved.the aituation j If we are to throw it away for ' want of enduraiiCB tciday,' liE is'no to reach the heiphts. where we can see tne plain o? victory at our feet. We mi\flt;OCC)jpy it,. ' . , , And hei^r" the wftrnlnK- of Eloyd George's cplIeBgue; In the British' government,' who is in. charge #f the Admiralty, against any giving way to the delusion ..that thej*fe is .not a- greater heed now than ever of ef-, fort and energy-to win the war. �Says Sir Brie Geddes:^ "-� r There can be'no gi'eater peWl to tlie cause of iiborty, decency dition to. which there is a tnerchandise reserve of $500,000, making &: total of $300,000,000." No Less Than 68 Per Cent. From the~Montreal Gazette:- . "That the Russell Motor Car Com-; pany experienced a satisfactory per--iod for the fiscal year ending J61y 31, 1918, is evident from the aiinUal report which has just been Issued. 'WhUe the not profit of $628,581 after taxes,; etc.;, was about $15,000 less than {fflir the previous year, the balaivce earned on the common stock was at^he rate of no less than 68 per cent." L A.

In the engraving is combined � foi^' purposes of security processes of various kinds and machine work, also that ot the picture engraver the letter engraver, the work of the geometric lathe cycloldal engraving machine for fine patterns. All this is assembled in one plate, thus making it difllcult for one engraver to counterfeit. The tints are also in the nature of a similar protection. In making a design an infinite amount of labor is involved. Then the design is worked by hand on a steel plate; the plates are hardened to prepare them for the printing, liammered and rolled and, various other processes followed be-fore.^he plate is ready for the printing. An Intricate Operation When they are ready for that opera- �tion the paper is wet, or "mellowed" in order that It may take the Ink. There are three operations in the printing. The first prints the color In the face; the second the reading matter on the face; the third the color on the back. The sheets then go to the drying room and then to the finishing room. Each sheet is carefully examined for possible defects and the numbers are then printed on each bond and coupon. All the sheets are balanced and checked twice daily. The bonds are then delivered in steel boxes to the Fi.nance Department at the rate of 30,000 a day. Altogether the making of the Victory Bonds of 1918 has been done in a manner to reflect credit on Canadian enterprise and skill. The possession of one of those beautiful pieces of paper will, indeed, be worth while. WHO DOES the BEST CLEANING?
