Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 8, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta , A Twelve-Mile Coulee correspondent reports tho following wonderful yield to the Herald: "We munt congratulate B. R. Tal-'bot on his orou on a pleoe of summer fallow on the n.w. V* of 19-11-21 w. 4th, -two bushels short of 74 bushels of wheat per acre from 31 acres, a total of 2292 bushels, and there are a few odd sheaves dropped In the long stubble that would even up the shortage. "When we remember � that 'Benny' Is only just a farmer, and has taken no Instruction .from any city man or from the department of Agriculture on how to. grow wheat, and has- no costly government seed or ball Insurance premium to pay for out of this crop, we admire Ills nerve in taking upon 'himself the grave responsibility of trying to grow a whole crop alone. "There were,' also about ten acres in tho centre of this piece hammered ho hard by the wind after it came up, 'that it never quite caught up with the rest of the piece, and must have been 20 bushels per acre below the average, at least. Well done, Benny. Any doubting Thomas can get these figures verified with very little trouble. We think it constitutes a record outside of experimental plots. DOLLAR WHEAT MALTA. SOON Calgary, Alta, Nov. 6.-"Wheat is destined to foe stronger. 1 look for dollar wheat In the west." This was the statement of W. H. Moore, secretary of the Alberta Farmers' Co-operative Eflevator Co., Saturday morning. Mr. Moore', in his position as secretary of the big Alberta elevator company, is probably as well informed on wheat values as any one in the west. "Take notice of the quotations on options," Mri Moore continued. "December and May are now selling at about the same figure in Chicago. On Friday the closing quotations at Chicago were 104% for December and 105% for.May. � Usually there is 5 cents difference or tyioreabout between these figures. The fact that they are practically the same at this time leads me to the belief that the professionals in the big American pit anticipate a keen demand in the near future. ." In ' my opinion, the wheat situation is getting to exactly the same status as it was in last fall about this' time, when, foreseeing the demand for flour and wheat, quotations rose to a very high level. I do hot look for the same high prices as pre vailed last year, because of the greal yield, but 1 dp look for dollar wheal in Calgary." ' BRITISH TOMMIES SERVED WITH "PUDDING BA8IN8" London, Nov. 7.-On some parts of the Flanders battlefront tho British army authorities have begun serving out to the men in the. fire trenches steel helmets similar to those introduced by the French. The British helmet is perfectly plain, and not decorated like the French, which has a grenade crest, and a rigid crown. The, British helmet exactly resembles a" pudding basin. It is lined with soft leather, and while light, it, is very warm. The men are said to be delighted with the new equipment because of the added sense of security against splinters, bullets and bomb fragments. AGED GRANDMOTHER 6o Weak She Could Hardly Stand-Made Strong by Vinol Right here ,in Lethbridge we have seen such excellent results from Vinol that it is a pleasure to know it is doing so much'good for old people in other parts of the country. Woodbridge, N.J.-"My Grandma was recovering from the grippe and was so weak she could hardly stand, and as she keeps house for my father and myself, she could not get around at all. She had taken cod liver oil and many,other medicines, but nothing seemed to do her any good. At last we heard of Vinol and tried it, and Grandma commenced to feel better right away and got strong very soon, so she. gets around as well as ever. We all.praise Vinol for it is a splendid xnedicine."Myrtle H, Biinn. The reason' Vinol is so successful in restoring strength to the aged is ibecause of the rare combination of tonic iron, the curative medicinal xtractives of fresh cods' livers, beef eptone and- mild native wine. It supplies iron to the blood, quickens the appetite, aids digestion, promotes 'proper assimilation of food, and enriches the blood, and brings back the strength of renewed .health. -Advertisement.
