Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT urrmmmr.E DAILT HERALD WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 19TJ FROM FhON? Will Be Satisfied Calgary. Sept. a whole the tanners of Alberta will, 1 iMnfc. bo satisfied with price of }2.21 for No 1 Northern, fiscd by the super- stated Mr. P. P. secretary of the Alberta li. F. A. "There will be a certain amount of dissatisfaction from fanners in dis- tricts that have a poor crop this year, but on the whole it Is satisfactory. There is one feature that is perhaps "tetter than we anticipated: that is. the closeness of the spread on the three grades Is eminently satisfac- tory. The mere fact that the gove-n- ment bss set a price on wheat is very much to our advantage for we are justified in asSins that prices he fixed on other commodities, such us farming machinery and flour." Local Comment "I would have thought they would havo made tbe price "id J. J. Tasker, ot Harems, la tbe }lerald this morning when he was told of tbe fiicd price ol 52.21 for wheat on a No. 1 f.o.b. Fort William. "Consider- ing that V. S. grades are lower lhau ours, the Canadian price should have been 52.25. However. I am. not dissat isfied." "It chould have been !2.2s.' was the comment of T. C. Beaver, who Is hear -llv producing farms in Soulheru Alberta. "I believe a lot 01 farmers will ship to the Minneapolis market If. Ihey can gel the cars." The farmers are wrong in thlntmg that they will get more by shipping to said a local grain man. "Since free wheat went into effect Minneapolis dealers havo been setting their grades higher. The sample mar- ket there might; however, give them a slight advantage, though they would probably be 'offset by the difficulty In getting cars and the additional freight rate.1' Altogether lie Herald was unaole to find a farmer who would mate more tthan a slight kick at the al- there were many who were, APPLES, ORANGES, FIBS to The Four Frits Used in Making "Fnfl-J-tim "FKU1T-A-TIVES" only mediciad in the nortd that U made from lie juices of fresh rijx fruits.
