Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 14, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1918 THE LETHBRroGE DAILY ITERALD Baron Shaughnessy Thinks Canada Will Recover Quickly From War Conditions neglna, Saslc, Sept. 13.-"Canaila Will fiiiU In SibovUi and a reawakonoU liussla a now market for iraploinontB and for llioir nianufactiired prodiicts tiildv tlio coiichiBion of tho war," said Haron}', president of llie (.'aiiadian Pacific Kullway upon liis arrival in .Regina this afternoon. His Lordship looks to the establishment of new markets as one of tlio Important factors hi the readjustment of tlio commercial and economic fahric at thu conclusion of hostilities and in this connection ho said that important IH-eparations were already being made vv'liich enabled him to feel assured that the war would not bo followed by any -�crlou.s di.siof'ution of industrial con-fiUloiis in thi.s connti'y or by unemployment. I)eu4ins with Siberia at; a potential objective for Clanadian manufaoturcd products the baron stated that the pos-Blhilitios offered for agricultural and industrial e>pansion in that country wore beginning Co be realized. He endorsed the statement of 1j. D. Wllgress, the Canadian trade coniraisKioncr. that that portion of the Russian Empire was already giving indications of its ability to shako off the old shackles and to construct its future founded on a more permanent basis. Dealing with conditions In western Canada, Baron Shaughnessy expressed his pleasure at finding that so far as he had penetrated the west on this jirescnt trip crop conditions were beyond earlier expectations and he was satisfied with what he had seen and heard up to the time ho reached Regina.  Short Stay at Calpary Calgary, Sept. 14.-Lord Shaughnessy, president of the Canadian Pacific Railway, and tho party of directors accompanying him on his tour of inspection of western lines, passed through Calgary this' morning,_ spending two hours, in tho city. A Btay of 24 hours will ho made on the return journey. Lord Shauffhiicssy, when Interviewed, had little to say that had not been previously covered. In regard to the controversy now going on with respect to the'taxatioh of Victory boilds his lordship thought it would liavfa been better If tho issue iiad been inude subject to taxation,'but, he said, it must be romemljored that the finance minister had to considOr the necessity of the occasion and the best means of getting tiie mone'y. -The party left for the west shortly, after 9 o'clock. AllENIATtY CAPTURED GUNS One Unique Incident of Recent Fighting on tlie British Front Smce She Tried "FRlTIT-A-TtVCS", The Femeui Fruit Medidae. ST OF STAFE flFF�FORTHE FORCES With the American Army on tho Bri-tish ]i>ont, Sept. 14.-Tho capture of a German battery by two British air-pianos was one of the unique incidents of I ho recent fighting in this area. Tho two airplanes, fighting scouts, sent out to harry the German infantry in the course of an important "local action," undertaken by tho Bvitish and American troop.s, had dispersed a battalion of German infantry marching up to the battle area, when they sighted, a quarter of a mile behind tho German line, a suspicious group of objects under some trees. Near the group of objects were 40 or 60 horses which were evidently being harnessed to something. The secret was soon out. The Germans were trying to remove a battery of field guns before the British and American infantry appeared on the scone. * Stampeded Horses- Without horses, this task would be impossible, so thn airmen decided quickly that the horses must either be killed or stampeded. The airmen dived down until they were less than 100 feet from tho ground. Then they opened fire, aiming at the guns and the demoralized gunners, but seeking chiefly to frighten the horses as much as possible. The horses required little encouragement in this direction, for their drivers deserted them iu search of cover and soon the horses were running off in all directions. For nearly a mile the airmen followed them across the fields. Then the airplanes were turned once more toward the batteries. Here it was found surprisingly easy to drive off the remaining men on the batteries and Tery soon the reason became obvious, for only a short distance away, across the ridge, tho British and American vanguards were advancing. Tho last cartridge In the airplanes was gone and two .9Couts landed In the field nearby and walked up to the guns and in a few minutes calmly handed thom over to tho British commander.

Gray Dort Motor Cars  Advance Rumely Engines Sharpies Cream Separators GIVE us A CALJ4 ALLEN JACK OPPOSITE L.ETHBRIDGE HOTEL PHONE 1544 The Universal Car .. There are more than two mllUon and a quarter Ford cars In service today. Practically one-half of all the cars on Canadian high-Wa>'b fire Ford cars. The Ford is the lightest car for Its power made -and lightness Is an absolute essential for economy in maintenance and for comfort in riding. It weighs several hundred pounds less than the ordinary car of the same power and carrying capacity. It puts more-tiro surface on tho ground per pound of car Uian any other. And Its lightness is also a big safety factor. Lightness minimizes the cost of upkeep by. reducing the wear and tear on the tires-by giving nioro mileage per gallon of gasoline -and by lessening tho strain and stress upon the co.r itself, Tires for Ford cars are comparatively inexpensive, because large ones are not required-and they give nia"XImufti service because the car is lightest. Ford owners have a minimum of tire troubles and other e.xpensos-and that's a big factor to consider in the buying of'a car. It Is surprisingly low in^price-and surprlBinBly high in value -because It Js produced upon a scale so gigaivtic as to reduce the cost of manufacture and distributing to a minimum, There is one outstanding roason/why the Ford car so far outsells all others. It-is a better car. ' \ . . Ford Garage C. C. McGREERY, Manager H. E. MEiaACH,Proprietor It is gratifying to note how the cities of the west are following the lead of the Dominion Convention of the G.W.V.A. and petitioning the government to increase the separa tion allowance for all ranks below the rank of captain, but why is it left to Calgary, Edmonton. Saskatoon and the Alberta Returned Soldier Commission when the same conditions face the dependents' of Southern Alberta? Taking the same thing from another anglej the city df. Calgary are figuring on the provision of a fund to obtain coal for the dependents of our boys at cost. Tho Great War Veterans Association of this city are taking the matter up also, but it would strengthen their case greatly If the city would take a hand as well. As we said last week, the councils of our cities and towns, because they are in direct contact witli conditions,, and because their deliberations are usually of a reliable nature, are the best ones to take up the cudgels on behalf of "the girls they left behtod them." T>oes your husband sigh in his sleep, Mrs. Veteran? Please don't worry about it, hels only dreaming of the time ho had at Cardston. Old Bill: "Suppose we lose this blinking war after all?" .

Witli the British Ai'my in France, Sept. 13.-(By tlic Associated Press.) -Fighting along the new British lino in the Havrincourt-Gouzeaucourt .sector today was confined mainly to mopping up operations, wliich were being conducted at various points by tliQ aggressors.. Havrincourt village was being bombarded fiercely by the Germans, however, 'and there were some indications that they might make another thrust any time in order to- regain points near Havrincourt, which they had been brdered to hold at all coats. More than 1200 prison ers were captured yesterday and the German casualties were severe. The fighting yesterday was bitter, especially in its final stages as the British reached high ground. Captured German officers state that they had been ordered to fight'to the last and that they carried out their instructions to the letter at many points. Some officers taken yesterday appear to be very gloomy over the situation from their standpoint. They state that the German high command had staked everything on the battle of: the Marne, which has failed so completely. > NEED LABORERS Moose Jaw, Sept. 13.-The harvest help situation: In the Moose Jaw.district has become very acute, now ithat threshing Is iu full swing.

Universal Usefulness ^�QWADAYS many tire-makers are urging motorists ��^ to use non-skids on rear -wheels arid smooth-treads or "driving" tires on front wheels. The reason given is that ordinary non-skids, with their small projections, make steering diificult when used in front, the effect being much the same as driving over rough roads. Thoujjh some non-skids are unsatisfactory on front wheels, it is evident that the. use of two different kinds of tires involves serious disadvantages. ^ In the first place it becomes necessary to carry an additional sparo in order to be properly equipped for emergencies. > Secondly, a smooth-tread driving tiro does not afford protectipn against skidding. The ideal tire is a n'on-skid' constructed so that it protects against skidding and yet steers easily and smoothly. Such a tire is the Michelin Universal Non-Skid. It is a Universal tire m fact as zvell as in name. Its patented tread is Hie most effective rubber m-n-skid ever devised. Yet this tread is so broad and fiat that it steers just as smoothly and easily as'a plain tread. When used on all four wheels Michelins ensure the utmost economy, satisfaction and safety all around. losk (or lUi Sits 03 Lndisf Giracn MicheiinUnivwalf Asv Ideal Noit-^ddr Sole Distributors for Alberta Foundry Products Limited, CALGARY ALBERTA Lethbridge Agents Bp Mor Parlors ltd. 9?776?7941 9 13?14?85528631106?637934282689 7493 ;
