Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 27, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta is Costing Mud) iMore :f;;;Now-All Increase Going i To Producer �"IE the people of i^thbndBO oiily i3ali;!ed Uiat 320 quarts of milk n day ^re being shipped in from north ot Gftlgary to meet tho demand, because so many local dairies bavc been torc-out of business by lev prices, they would know that there was some good cause for the announced increase iu fhe^ price of jnillc."-. -This, from W. J. Uoyd of Lioyd and Ucvine, one of; Oie largest milk producing firms iii;the'district, is one of IMPORtANT LINKS Hygiene, rest, pi�e air^ sxinshine and a well-bal&nced diet,'plus SCdTt'S EMULSiaN ia improve the blood-quality, uicrease body-weight and build np resistance, are important links in the logical treatment of incipient pulmonary affections.

Mr. Lloyd declares that the whole of the latest increase" goes to the producers, none going to tho retailers, who are niaJciug no more money than they were previously. Following are some of tlie price increases quoted by Mr.'Lloyd ns being responsible tor the increase in,the price of milk: Alfalfa, now 52.i a ton ii\ stack, a year ago" $13 a ton in stack. Bran, same. Malt, now $20 a brew, a. year ago $,'5 a brow. Wages, now ITS and board, a year ago $45 and board. A year ago the milk producers wore receiving $2.50 per hundredweight for milk. Today they are receiving $4.50. Those prices are for milk delivered in Lethbridge. a premium or discount being allowed, depending ou the percentage of butterfat in the milk. Root Crop n Failure. MrrLloyd also pointed out that the root crop, this year was a failure, with the result that expensive feed must be purchased to make up fo:o this loss. It is one of tJie practices of daio' concerns to veal their male calves. I The price of these has dropped with ! the price of beef, and another loss has to be reckoned with. The case of one local dairyman who. before the increase in the price of milk was feeding his cows at a daily cost of 70 cents a day and receiving in return 52 cents worth of milk was instanced. "It is either a caijo of tho dairymen getting enough money for their product to keep tliem in business, or ot selling out the herds and going into a more lucrative line," said Mr. Uoyd. Already six dairy bams stand empty in the district, evidence that the dairy business has not paid in the past. It is not right to expect the dairy man to lose �U the money. Better for 10,000 people in the city to pay a few cents extra each and keep him in business. . Those 80 gallons of milk being skipped in each diy from the north should all be produced right here. It would be-better for the district." Mayor Hardie said this morning that he had not yet been asked to investigate, milk prices as the council has a right to do, but he had been thinking of.asklng the councit to do so. However they would gather some facts as to production costs first. It would be a bad business to drive tbe tlaii-ymen iilto'qulttin^.

Application is being made today hy tho Lethbridge Rotar.v Club for a charter for the Bank of Monte Carlo, capitalized at $2,500,000 through which to transact the business of tho Victory Dance Carnival on Dec. 12, 13 and 14. This news will indicate the gigantic task the,Rotarlans have undertaken, and indicates that there will be at least $2,500,000 worth of fun at tho big doings. The new bank will also bo tho headquarters for Santa Glaus when-he arrives from the frozen north. Ho will circulate between tho bank and the Christinas Treo where he intends to keep his stock of good things for the Kiddies. Santa Clans is making a special trip to Lethbridge on Saturday, Dec. llth owing'to the heavy load his reindeer will be required to carry on tUjU occasion. Seven hundred kiddies expect to see him arrive. Arthur Baalim who is now in commvmication with Santa was first thinking of bringing him down from the North Pole by airplane, but it was decided to stick to the old reliable reiiideer so that the kiddies would know when he arrived. SaiitA Claus is ot course most concern^ about the boys and girls but the dub has arranged for him to give a good time for all those who attend the carnival. At present indications tliat will be at least lOOO each of the three nights. * � ? SIBERIA SOMEWHAT > *: LIKE CANADA. > > * : > t ? > .-point8 dt- re-, semblance. Iu physical and geographical features they have much in common, and this likeness ;ih naturally reflected to a large extent in the fauna and flora of the two countries. Both ' countries ;;are the, reservoirs of food and raw .materials' for great Empire^;- , Both � have uncounted wealth in'titieir mfneral resources and.both the richeS' of thelt, forests and streams are incalculable;" although in both lauds the real wealth lies in the "black earth" of the steppes and prairies. The settlers of Siberia and Canada have both had to face peculiar hardships and suffering as pioneers of their new domain. Climatic conditions have been a barrier to rapid development in both ^countries Politically each country, has developed along the lines of local self-government wtih central Parliaments and the final say in matters affecting its national destiny left to the supreme governance of the Empire. Siberia-the Russian Siblr- is a vast territory of abcftit five and a. half million square miles, and supports a population of about fourteen million persons. It is bounded in the west by the Ural Mountains, iu the north by the Arctic and Pacific Deeans, and on the south along the Tarbagatai range and the Chinese frontier to the edge of Korea.. Much of its geography is still imperfectly known, especially in the uninhabited hilly tracks. , Siberia can. roughly be divided into three east and west zones. Of these the "tundra." the most northerly, is practically a treeless v belt, with perpetually frozen subsoil, the upper layers forming a vast swamp in the summer. Nest comes the "taiga" or forest belt, mountainous over a large portion of its area and thickly wooded with poplar, spruce; birch and alder. To the south lies the more open or agricultural belt, with an area suitable for cultivation two and a half times the size of France. Through this runs the great Trans-Siberian railroad from Vladivostok on the "Pacinc Ocean to, a distance of approximately 4,000 mile.s. This is about one thousand miles more than the distance from Montreal to Vancouver, although, on the other hand, while the total mileage ot the railways of Canada is approximately 36,000 miles, the total mileage of the Siberian railways is not more than 8.000. Vladivostok, where It i.s expected the Canadian overseas force will land, is a modem city in every respect. Situated ou the tip of the Golden Horn, it is fringed with forests of oak, birch, maple, walnut and lime, beneath, which Is a rich undergrowth of the moat varied shrubs. The annual mean temperature is only 40 Kahr., but the gulf itself never freezes, although  a thin crust of ice forms about December and does not disappear until April. In industry, population and location, Vladivostok m^y be compared with Prince Rupert, although it is considerably larger tBan the British Columbia port, but in the raodem-ness of the two places there is no comparison. A magnificent cathedral, a museum, observatory, naval hospital and an Oriental , Institute lift "Vladivostok at once Into the rank of the world's cltlee, w'nile the shops of its well laid-out streets and boulevards contain the latest novelties from Paris, London, New York and Tokio. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 1918 THE LATE ALEX. ADAM One of the best known Lethbridge boys to make the supremd sacrifice in France was the lute Pte. Adam who was killed on Sept. 3Sth last. Alex.

He was a splendid type of young man, and is mourned by a host of friends. His parents are at present resident in Coalhurst. They have received the following comforting letter from Lieut.
