"Magnificent," "wonderful," "home grown" are some of the exclaimutions made by wcstei-n visitors as they JcPok at the exhibit of grains and grassios. T. Woolfoi-d was first here winter wheat as he wos at Winnipeg. In grain in shoaf, competition was close in all varieties. The samples showing the clean still straw, the long heads, and plump grains that make pu.siiiole the Ing yields that Southern Allicrta fanners look for. .Pawson s Spring Wheat and Jomcs' oats, superb ,h they are, are pressed close by worthy competitors.

They have good ponies, of considorahle speed, great strength, and wonderful endurance, and they know It. Asi long ,Bs the Indians provide such rapid transit the strei't-car problem will be shelved. People as a rule are slow, to loo,m the "Eyes on; Hands OR" nuHto. Dirty, grimy fingnrs were often fondly holding within their grasp the delicate faiui.v work displayed by the ladies.
