May Declare Half-Holiday The Commissioners are favorable to granting the request of the Ray- mond carnival management for a half- holiday in Lethbridge, on the after- noon of August 31, in order that the j Lethbridge people may have the op- i portunity of taking ir. the big affair without inconvenience. The Commis- sioners have passed the request on to the Board of Trade for an opinion, and it will be discussed at the regular luncheon Thursday noon. The holi- day will likely be declared. Freight Movement Heavy The movement of freight through the Lethbridge yards has taken a de- cided increase during the '.ast two weeks, and the movement of grain is not responsible. Since August 1. three more locomotives have been put into commission, with headquarters here. Also four more crews have been "outfitted and sent from Leth- bridge to other parts of .the south. The increase in freight traffic is due to the movements of livestock, farm implements and binder twine chiefly. Also the distribution of cars in pre- paration for the loading of grain is requiring a lot of work. Another Movie House Thursday night will see the open- ing of another, "movie" theatre in Lethbridge, when The- atre in North Lcthbridge will be op- ened to the public. This cosy little picture house, formel'iy the Monarch, has been thoroughly renovated and is under entirely new management. There will be three changes of pic- tures weekly, and the service will be equal to that of any other theatre in the city. To celebrate the opening of the theatre, the management have decided to throw th house open to the public free of charge on Thurs- day njght. North Lethbringe long felt the need'of movies on that side of 'he city and the opening of the Re- gent will fill the bill for northelders, as well as for many southstders.

A special arrangement has been made with the Provincial racing associa- tion, and a fine purse list has heen prepared. Some of the best in the country claim Raymond as their home, and the invaders will need to get out and dust to heat them. The agricultural end of the fair is unique.
