Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 10, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta fiHGE FOUR THE LETHBRTDGE DAILY HERAL^ XetbDrtDflc, Hltjcrta I* ^ DAILY AWO WKKKLY . PreprletQra and Pabllther* WM LETHBRIOGE HERALD PRINT. INQ COMPANY, LIMiTEO M of Education can maie himself strong at the beginning of his administration, by making it clear that new citizens now coming to the country must be taught the English language and that the German ''eld the territory gained at that time unless they lacked the men to hold it. Back home in Germany the people must wonder -what has caused the defeat, and it will take a good deal ot explaining to satisfy the already war I weary Germans. The ease with which I the allies have been able to drive ' back the enemy in recent weeks is a confession of weakness on the part of the enemy. It means tliat he lacka the resources to put up a real fight to hold back the allies. And- the retirement, with such great loss is bound to have a marked effect on the morale not only of the^ army but of the people. When will the war end? If the present push can be kept. up, so that the Gerznan army will not have the opportunity to gather together and prepare for battle,' the end may coma much sooner than we imagine. Thei German people will lose heart and so will the soldiers, and a weakened morale will cripple the fighting �forces very' rapidly. The danger is that Germany may throw up its hands and ask for peace before it is properly punished. It it sees the odds ot battle - against it and realizes that America is in the war to the limit, it may want to quit and sue for peace ^PICKED UP m-* PASSING f^STTSS Creston, B.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER id, 19i8 Nothing higher than this has been reported yet. Many crops are going much lower than that. The encouraging feature is that, contrary to first expectations, tho whole district will �;et more than seed back from the crops,  PINCHER CREE.K. PlnCher Creek, Septi 8.-A week of beautiful weather followed the down pour of rain which fell over the entire district on Saturday and Sunday last. The grain - in stock received such a thorough wetting however, that even at the last ot tho week it was unfit to thresh. Saturday evening, again, ushered In a rain which tell continuously during the night and all Simday forenoon, and though the rain has ceased, the clouds are low and show no signs ot clearing. - As soon as weather conditions permit; threshing will bo commenced in this district. K Is thought that where fields were sowu comparatively late, the yields will be very good. But as an extra effort was made this past spring to get in evjery acre possible, a great many fields were killed cut by the drought, and this will pull down the average yield to a grave extent. Thiare isn't tho slightest doubt,, but that for the present, the rains of late have saved the pasture situation. threshing prelude, wheat and barley. Mr. J. Hv ArbhlUW has started lUs threshing rig also, beginning at Mr. E. N, VVoeku' wJU� fall rye and going south to tho farm.of Mossrs. Frod and James Qiilntonl" �This oiitlil also began on the fifth.

CJlaresholm, Sept. 7,-Threshing is in full swing in this district and the sainple of grain coming to the elevators has been all No. 1 so far. The yields on stubble crops are running fjCom 8 to 12 and in a few cases 15 bushels per acre. The summer fallow crops are holding up to expectiitlons, some yields are being reported at 32 bushels per acre, which is a very good yield tor this season.  MrLkrRlVER -Milk R!vor,.Sopt. T.-Wo are nil so sure of our tllstrlot here.thai il takes more than oite poor Crop to worry us.

From all parts of tho MacUod district i.a5 grain is reported Xo 1, and the quiin'.ity. is over tlio estimates. The rata of last Saturday and Sunday has again improved the feed problem, and much hay is being cut, this with tho.slraw will materially help out tlie 'feed proposition for the coming-winter. (From Our Own Coriospondent) Fernle, Sept, 9.-A dance which was to have been hold la Femie �n Saturday night "In aid ot the Ukrainian Labor Temple, Winnipeg," was stopped by the chief of police on inatrlic-tlons from the mayor.

IN THE PROVINCE Edmonton,-Sept. 7i-From reports received by the department during the past week, harvesting has proceeded^ with very little Interruption throughout the whole province. Local showers with light frost m a few districts but no damage reported, fn the Boutb-ern districts seventy-five per cent, of the grain is already in atook-threshing has started In a number ot Idfcali-tio.s and reported good samples and yield.s, iully justifying termer reports, -in a few places as high as \ forty bushels ot No. 1 has been marketed,- In others a yield from five to fifteen bushels is reported. .,.

LETHBRIDGE'S OWN GENERAL. Brigadier-General Sterwart's recog-altlon by the French authorities Is not aurpnsing to those familiar with the place he has gained in Prance since the war started. General Stewart Is very modest; he exacted a /promise that nothing should said bout him through the press or on .'the platform. And the promise was . made, but alnce the' French have placed thel^. approval upon Tiis military services 'by giving him the Cross of War -we are goteg to break the promise, so far as to say . that General Stewart is recognized as one of the most efficient artillery officers ia the Held today. He knows his business and tnows It well. Today- he is a brigadier; he may rise to even bigh� rank, Ijut whatever he is today or may be tomorrow, he has won wholly on Ills merits as a soldier. It wasn't f uU, or It wasn't favoritism that made Jack Stewart a brigadier-general, it was his excellent qualities as an ar-tUlery officer. Gen. Stewart Is very popular with his men. He is aa approachable ntiw as be was when he was Lieut-Colonel. The men can come to him with their troubles, knowing that they will be listened to and helped. Popular is a very common word, and often used out of place, but Gen. Stewart Is all that-and more than that he is respected, admired and-If the expres- - sloq is not too effeminate to attach to one man's thoughts ot another , man-Joved. , before there has been a complete d&;, tion of uniform divorce la-ws so far teat of its armies. There are certainj as possible in all the provinces, elements in all countries willing' to accept an early peace _ but they are a small minority. The bulk of 'the people want a hundred per cent, peace. That is what'Tjijcre' Sain" is after. The American confesses- his country went into the war very late bnt he says now that he is going .to make up for his delay by staying In the game until it is won,and the aspirations and spirit of the enemy are crushed. He wants to get over the Rhine; he wants to give Kaiser Bill a dose of.his o-wn medicine; a bombing here and there every day in the week, and be ii likely to carry out his plans. Germany will get a taste of air-raiding -in the next few months that will turn the German people yellow. Hands will go up and peace will be demanded. Watch and see. Tbe end of the war is nearer maybe than most of us imagine, hut that end whenever It comes must bring with it complete victory. If not, then it will not mean the end, it will be merely a recess. resourceful able men, one of our big men, and Canada ought to have his services in some capacity or other at this time. Hon. Newton Rowell is wasting time corresponding with Lucien Cannon, M.P, for Dorchester. He might as well try to argue with the Kaiser about the merits ot the nations engaged in the war. The Winnipeg Free Press has an editprial "Summer has Stopped." Wbo stopped it? It is still summer around here. But then Winnipeg always did have long winters and short summers. The C. P. K. seems to enjoy taking Advantage of s country that is at its mercy. .J, D. McGregor has ault the Pood ^Board. He eays there was no frlc-'- tlop whatever with the other mem-'.-fce'rs. It is ft, thankless Job but he , �homd have remained on the bpard. too valuable a man to losel J. ft, 'McGregor j8 one of Canada's real The C. P. R. brings people lato a country and guarantees them adequate railway facilities. And then when it gets them in, and is not facing any competition, it cuts down the facilities. It pays to be honest. An epigram attributed to U. S. Con-gresaman Gallivan reads: "Rum has more enemies In public and more friends in private than any other substance the world bas ever known." So some breaths would lead us to believe. ' As a fair illustration of the rabbit pest in certain portions of New Zealand, and especially in the drier sections of the South Island, it is stated that on ah estate lately taken over by the New Zealand Government, comprising 12.446 acres of freehold and a pastoral run of 19,230 acres, there were killed or captured about 120,000 rabbits in order to clear up the property so as to make il aullablo for the location of returned soldiers.
