From the reports of condi- eighty people paid admission to the tions in Southern Alberta that they fair grounds yesterday as against had F. S. Keltey, one of the Wetaskiwin party, they Fernie, August Robert Ba- den-Powell, the well known South Af- rican soldier, hero of the celebrated siege of Mafeking, and the head -and originator of the Boy Scout movement, passed through Fernie yesterday, en route, to Nelson and the Coast cities. A son of Colonel J. A. Collins, of Barnes, London, England, who served in South Africa, met the distinguished soldier and introduced him to Mr. E.N. Lynn, a member of the. Loyal Legion of Frontiersmen, now a resident of Fernie, and this meeting resulted in Mr. Lynn boarding the train and ac- companying the general as far as Blko, n order that arrangements could be last year's record of about three two hundred people. In- cluding, the passes to exhibitors, di- and.the scores of men em- ployed upon the grounds for one pur- pose and another, Secretary McNicol estimates that there were well over six thousand people on the grounds yesterday. Only those who were on the ground bright and early were able to secure seats on the grand stand, hundred lined the fences, filled the paddocks never expected forgone minute to see such displays particularly of vegetables. The stock exhibits, too, all day yes- terday, continued to draw large ad- miring crowds. Day Was.Hitchless All the arrangements for the day worked; without a hitch. Everything ran according to. schedule the In- dians started' .it by being on parade to the minute, moving off the-grounds climbed on top of the stables and other buildings in order to see the1 J.T. 4, Macleod, Aug. large crowd of Macleod people have left to take in the Fair at Lethbridge, some of whom a-e W.

The Grier Block, which was last winter visited by fire is being repaint- ed.This greatly adds to the appearance of the building, which is on 2nd Ave- nue. The cement sidewalks are now, com- pleted along Main street and -the street is now clear for the first time tins year, 'having at other times been blocked partly with brick and stone for building purposes. A gang of men started tearing up this street this morning in order that they might start regrading it and put the crushed rock and roller on it. c As this street is in fine condition at present, having only two years ago been built and graded, it was-thought by several rate payers to be useless to regrade this street and a petition to 'the Mayor was circulated by Coun- cillor Hicks readily signed by most of the business men and rate payers. The petition reads to the ef- fect -that there are several streets of importance in the town that are in far worse need of grading and re- pair than the main street. As yet there has been "nothing done in re- gard to the matter by the Council. Dr. W. W. Milburn has left for a two weeks' holiday to che Coast. Mr. E. R. McCrea, of this town, re- turned tonight from Pincher Creek where he attended the funeral of the late Jas. SCOOT. C. H. Baker and W. H.

They left considerabl advertising with the people at the here. RUPERT'S LAND, SYNOD SESSION Archbishop Matheson On the Support Of Indian Schools Prince Albert, Sask. Aug. der sunny skies, Ruperts Land Ang- lican Synod met in St. Alban's Ladies College, -some seventy five delegates being present. The proceedings open- ed with service in the church, Bishop Lofthouse of Keewatm preaching. The regular sessions commenced this after- noon, Arch Bishop Matheson replied to a civic welcome tendered by Acting Mayor Baker and President McGuire of the Board of Trade. The open- ing business was mostly routine, in-1 eluding reports of the church mission- ary society of England. His Grace in a. lengthy and interesting address cov- ered the western problems thoroughly. Regretting he was unable to cover the western field entirely His Grace nev- ertheless was encouraged by the pro- gress made each year showing distinct advance in the number of clergy and self supporting districts in every di- ocese. His Grace referred gratefully to the way the Canadian church has risen to its obligations and for the substan- tial aid for the missionary society in races, balloon ascension and so forth, while hundreds more were unable -to catch-any thing but. a glinipse of 'ai race now and again, and amused themselves in the grounds at the rear of the grand stand, or inspecting the live stock and other exhibits. Visitors Amazed were tbe races led by Judge-Starter Fred with him with his foot, first one and then Four tribes were represented in yesterday's parade, the Bloods, Peigans, the Sarcees and the Crees. Splendid Parachute Drop The balloon ascension and para- chute drop made by Geo. H. Webster, proprietor of the balloon, was a great success. The day, at least, on the grounds, was ideal for the.ascent, al- though the movements of the para- chute and balloon, indicated that there was quite a pronounced .gyros- copic action Of the air higher up. Mr. Webster weighs only about 100 pounds, and as the balloon, is made commenced sharp at {for heavienmen, when the sphere was that the last.event on the afternoon programme was over by 5.45. Indian Parade It was promptly at 1 o'clock that the Indian marshalled by Geo. Houk, came down Round street People from other parts declared themselves amazed that a city of about population could'turm i and proceeded to the grounds, arriv- ing there by 1.30.'" In keeping with the wonderful advances in all other lines, the Indian parade was much out so many people to its fair. andljarger ami 'in the way. of dress and George H. Webster, the balloonist, who made an ascent from, the grounds, hunted up the Herald to say that he had attended eleven fairs through the states of Dakota and Minnesota this summer, but the Leth- bridge fair had got the whole bunch put together, beaten forty different ways. What pleased Mr. Webster most, as it did hundreds more, was the Indian parade, which he declares has Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show 'bucked off the boards." Capt. Bag ley, of Calgary, old-timer as he is, also declared the Indian parade was far and away tbe finest he had ever een. Surprised at Farm Products The exhibition of grains, grasses and vegetables, continued all day yes- terday to attract much attention. Scores gazed at them in admiration and could hardly be convinced that all the vegetables, grasses and sheaf- ed grain had been -grown in the Leth- bridge district this year. Among the most surprised in this regard were the Wetaskiwin people who came down from the north with an excel- lent exhibit of the farm products of before. 'There were; 236 Indians the parade, most of them mounted color, far more splendid than ever and decked all their paint, feathers, bead work trappings and other finery, arid would have been more, but they could not get painted up quick enough. "To-day, Geo. Houk promises .there will be at least 400. 125 Musicians Perform Together Heading this .parade around the race track were .President George M. Hatch; of the Agricultural Society, j released he shot up into the blue like J a bullet from a 'gun, and attained a height in a few minutes which he es- timated at feet. When, released from the balloon, Mr. Webster fell about 200 feet before his parachute opened, and a great gasp rose from the whole crowd. The daring para- chutist landed in a field east of the grounds, and his balloon fell a few minutes later on-' the south side of the park fence. Excellent Vaudeville Between the races, a series of splen did vaudeville "acts, under tbe. manage ment of Al. Morris, of the Eureka, who also supplied the parachute act, j took place on the stage in front of the grand stand, and the performanc- es were heartily applauded for their out of the usual cleverness.

He thanked the government for assistance it had giver, the railway. So serious were matters brought by the United Farmers of Alberta that Sir Wilfrid asked time to consider to His own." Premier Sifton congratulated Red Deer in that two railway companies were fighting for the privilege of get- ting to Red Deer.
