NOTES The crowd was as big as that of the first day last yss-r end today promises to be th'ii big day. A remarkable feature yesterday was the great 'Crowds of people on the grounds who did not go to the grand stand to watch the races. -The poul- try, the horses, and the hall exhibits held hundreds all the afternoon. The agricultural fair idea is growing. The stock parade consisted, entire- ly of horses but was as good as could seen anywhere. There were'horses re" that prizes at the greatest fairs in the country. Canada and the "United States and ai thoy marched past the crowd they sarri.d the ai-i? of an aristocracy. The parade was most creditable and was convincing pmof that the Leth. llriclgo Fair is a great howse show. The bucking contest provided much amusonir'nt to the crowd, and con_ sid ruble wonderment to the strang- ers. The first two horses were rid- den successfully by a white man and an Indian respectively. The third horse, a long Innky sorrel, made two bucks and landed his rider an In- dian on the track with a bump. He would not buck for the next rider so the prize money was divided be- tween the first two riders. MINING TOWN DESTROYED Ely, N. D..

The enthusiasm dis- played by Liberals since the opening of the contest three weeks ago has been remarkable and the feeling of confidence in the result has been in- creased daily by the satisfactoey re- ports and assurances of victory pour- ing in from every constituency In the province. What Taber Expects To Do This Year Taber, Aug. talk with some of our farm implement merchants goes to sliow that the implement trade during the three weeks just end truly, amazing. previous season during the history of Taber has there been so many reapers, drills mowers and rakes sold, as during the time above stated. "Last year It would be a good to have two stairways in the hall, one to go up and the other down. The stair is too small. The music provided by the Leth- bridge City Band was frequently and fav r.ibly comment d upon. The band was liberal with its music and helped materially in the afternoon's enjoyment.
