Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 23, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER THE LETHBRiIDGE DAILY HERAfcW PAGE FIVE That tho farmers In Alberta liro not Betting a square dcnl from tile rail- ways, is tho opinion of a prominent shipper of livestock, residing near Barons, who was In tiio city tills morn- Ing. In addition to the complaint tone, by a Seattle livestock man buy- lug in the south, that tho C.P.R. Would not extend yard null loading facill' ties for stock bound tor American markets, ami that they would not dou- ble-dock cars for American buyers, this stockman claims that there is practically no use in trying to buy southern Alberta stock on account of the revolting of the rate formerly in effect. Tills rate, from points in Al- berta to Soattle, was 08 cents a hun- dred, and the cost ol shipping a car to that place was approximately This tariff has been taken off, so tliat the cost now is in the neighborhood of A rate of cents a hun- dred applies from here to Sunms, and Jrom there to the Seattle yard the lo- cal rates apply, making the cost almost prohibitive. The- farmer interviewed by the Her- ald states that this has practically knocked out all sales to American buyers, that the buyers are removiufi from the field, and that tlie southern Alberta farmer Is losing a valuable and profitable market, solely through the treatment tendered by the rail- way. This same farmer, whoso name Is withheld for very proper reason, thinks that Lethbridge'is neglecting a fine opportunity to establish a per- manent livestock market and yards. Much of the stock that is ultimately sold to American buyers for shipment to coast markets, Is shipped to Cal- gary from the south, and thence back again over the same trail, to Seattle nnil Spokane, tlie cost of sucii doubl- ing -back being paid by the farmer, to the advantage of the railway. RETLAW Mrs. JIosc "VVhealan has been very sick tlie past week, and liopcs for her recovery were almost despaired of. But wo are glad to report that sho is some better at this writing. Mr. anil Mrs. Frank Carpenter, who have "been visiting friends., started buck to Iowa last Monday. They were much surprised to find the country looking BO good for a dry year, and were pleased with tlie climate and soil, and said we would have one of the finest fanning districts in America and that land values were bound to go up hete as they have done: in, other places. Oscar Nelson is fixing up his house, oh "ails farm, and .will move b'ack tliere and farm his land himself next year. The O.P.K. contsructlon Head engin- eer left Retlaw .loot week. The com- pany are doing away'with his services here for this.year. What little 'threshing there "was to do in this district is done, and farm- ers are now 'plowing for next year's crop. It's too bad wev have not enough, feed now we need it. Some oC our farmers are selling their 6-weeks'-old pigs for cash. A year ago there was a good demand for them at each. Our-machine men report a good trade on plq'ws. TJiey are giving next year's terms on them. This should be done on all machinery.

His old place.of business will be used for a dance hall. Reports coming from the north and east fey "their crops are not as good aa last year, and the best wages for a man is per day and board. Mr. E. A. Everett says his potato crop is fully as good as last year, If not better. He sent a sample of'four potatoes that would average about ond pound each, to let the'people in Iowa see what we call a total failure. i SCENE OF WORLD'S GREATEST BATTLE The armies of the 'Czar have won a great victory at Zamose, 70 miles north ot Lomberg, They have also severed that Austrian city from Buk- ovlnia in the south by cutting the railway forty milca away, The city has since ibeen captured.

Jonee, sales manager of the head of- fice at Chicago, were callers In ttioj city today, on their annual' western tour. Mr. Hosluns stated that coiloctipns In tho west are coining In much botj ter than was anticipated In face, of stringent conditions, owing tp tho high prices tho -farmers are getting for tihelr wheat.

The movement is supported by the ju- diciary and the-bishops of the prov- nce. Hon.

He added.that the- leading public men of both parties would follow the example of Prime Minister Asnuith. -and Arthur Ba'ifour in England, and take the platform in (he interest oE a recruitine campaign from one end of the province to tlie other.

'The German fire seemed to slack- en for an instant, that instant the bridge was blown up, for the twelfth man, dashing across tho space lined with bodies of his comrades, reached the fuse and lighted it.

Almost everyone knows .that Sago Tea and Sulphur, properly compound- ed, brings back (he natural color and lustre to the hair when faded, streak- ed or gray; also ends dandruff, itch- ing scalp and stops falling hair.
