Cattle a Poor Showing j Pleasing as the horsy exhibit was it must he confessed that the showiiiK in cattle was disappointing. Those shown wort all right hut the number was disappointingly small. It was sur prising too. for .Mucleod dis'Hct farm- ers are noted for enterprise iu ke-ep- ins-high -dairy cattle. It may be that the fair clashes 'with the early harvest and the fanners haven't time to bring in cattle which is a notorious-! ly slow procedure.

There was a fill horns and Holsteius were the favor- ites and some very line animals shown. Other Livestock Other lines of livestock were also a scant exhibit. There were a. few pens of sheep but it must lie confessed that aside from horses tho livestock dis- play was not a success. Some Fine Chickens The poultry exhibit was ;in excel- ent one. in fact vastly, superior to former years. Lethbrldgc birds were, numerous. Jones, of N'orth Lethbridge j list of entries in nearly every event and the contests were all on the level There were other attractions, includ- ing" highland hut next to tho horse racing came the human race. There was a baby show. Twenty-five cherubs, mothers' darlings, the best the world has yet seen, were lined up for inspection before a crowded grand stand. There were some mighty fine looking babies too. and just how they were- judged 'was not announced. Doc- tors and devotees of the science of eugenics .think babtes should be judg- carrying off many premiums. K, N. Barker of Cardston was judge in .this department and he said it was cons id- rably" above the average. White ed on points, just, like a chicken or a colt. So many points for this excel- lencc and that. It wasn't stated that the judges follower! that course, but Vyamiottes, Buff Orpingtons and Bar- 1 they selected two pretty fine nine- ed Plymoutha seem to be the favorite months'-old boys and tagged the wln- irds.- Authorities say the Buff Orp-jniiig ribbons on them.

It was a toss up which was the prouder, the baby or the mother. Mrs. D.

Hnlifnx, N. S., Aug. L. Htsely, of Bristol, England, arrived Jsst night in connection with tbe ceremonies of the formal dedication of tile memorial tffwer. Mr. Riaely brought with him to Halifax the sentation from Bristol of the tablet depicting the sailing of John Cabot from Bristol, on May 10, 1407, which been presented to Halifax, by the ciry or Bristol. The taolet is accom- panied by fac similes of the flags pre- sented to Cabot by Henry pre- vious to failing on his memorable voyage, with .the Instructions to plant tlicm in distant lands and take pos- spsnion of such lands In the'name of (he King of i bars and external friJIs the general utility features have declined. Be that as it may the barred bird has many fanciers. There were many fancy fowl, in faoi all classes seemed to be well filled. The Main Building A stroll through the main building proved rather a disappointment. There were no industrial exhibits be- yond a. fine display from the local print shops. There is ample room for "Cfefts M Grandpa] IN the' morning more than any other time of the day you need rood that is nourishing and refreshing.

The farmers have 'the stuff ing show was over there were 300 and it was probably again a case of] tired people, write it down to a sur being too busy. There was a fine -dis-j feit of pleasi play ci field roots and vegetables. Macleod gardens are certainly produc- tive of size and quality in vegetables. The development was surprising for the season of the year and one would not wish for finer cauliflower, cabbage peas and other vegetables. It is too early for tomatoes and some other lines, and Macleod people ate too honest to show California product as home grown. H has been done at other country fairs. Not Much Butter The dairy exhibit was siiih hut one under a scorch ing sun. President de Rinzy, Secre tary Richardson'and other hard 'work ing and courteous officials have rea- son to congratulate themselves on thi success scored. Macleod gave it! hundreds of visitors a cordial Macleod welcome and the'fair passed withoui a hitch as the old. proverb goes. The civic fathers co-operated, with the fair authorities and the town donned its glad rags. At night streamers of col ored electric lights across the streets produced an effect decidedly pi-easing to the eye. STERLING Stirling, Aug.

Tuck- er, of the fire department, has tend- ered his resignation to the council, to ke effect at cnee. It. is understooi .here was some friction between ilr. Tucker, and the members of the fire department over, some matters in connection with the provincial tourna- nent 'recently held here, and it was -a case of either tbe chief "tendering: his resignation or the entire brigade vould likely have done so. Rather than cause any split brigade, which is admitced to be one best volunteer.aggregations in he West, Chief Tucker apparently bought it best to. retire. Regardless of what these differen- :es may have been, Mr. Tucker cer- ainly served the town faithfully and well, and the citizens arc very much him for the efficient con- ition in which he leaves the brigade. The oid derrick, which has adorned be road leading to the depot for a dug has -been razed to the ;round, and will be removed either Q the oil wells south of town, or to he Segur properties west of High iver. A large number of Pinch-er Creek eople attended the fair at Macleod his afternoon." They a4I report a ood time, and are saying some nice hings about the exhibition there.
