The plac- ing of an attractive exhibit hi the exhibition hall brings their business j .to the attention of hundreds and thou sands of prospective customere, es- pecially, among the new comers fctd who expect to come to this city and district. ''.Outsiders also get a line on- the live .business 'firms and when they want to do business in they know the firms with which .they can deal: More tkan that, the fair display is an excellent harness, a part of the- parade missed yesterday.; It was good, how- ever, 'very good and was the occasion of much interest: .for grangers and new comers..

The Itwo J'ear olds tnat have been taking Indians' paint and dress were more the Pri2ss at Winnipeg, Regina, and here and the winners must be good horses. This year sev- eral of the biggest dealers in Alberta brought their prizewinners to the fair with the result that the horse exhi- bition is the best ever held. Among the large dealers and breeders who had a number of horses were J. R. Hinshaw of High River, Geo. Lane of the Bar U ranch, High River, R. W. Bradshaw, Magrath, Smith Lee of Cardston and others with smaller numbers of horses. J. R. Hinshaw had six stallions, three Clydesdales and three Percher- ons, all. prize winners. His'three two-year old Percherons are as fine a lot of horses as can "be seen any- where. Egypt was tirst in the two i year old class and won the special for best American bred with Avelin, a stable mate, second. These two beat the elaborate than previously.

A matched race 3-8 dash, between a runner belonging to Knight of.Kay- mond and one belonging to Austin of of Cardston, resulted- in a win for the latter. In the Main Building The exhibits in the main building this year in many respects excelled previous years. As might be expect- ed the exhibit of grain in the sheaf was particularly fine. The wheat with full heavy heads and clean, stiff straw, presented a prosperous sight. The oats, with long, heavy heads, and rich green straw bespoke great crops. The barley was a fine sample too. Those who say Alberta cannot grow corn, seeing D. J. Whitney's six-foot sheaf or green, corn, were convinced of their mistake. The grasses were very fine. T. H. Woolf- ord of Cardston had fine specimens of different clovers. The alfalfa was a goo.'.! display while the timothy ivas good enough for any eastern farmer. The vegetable exhibition was sim- ply great. There were a great many Brood mare with foal, W. H. Harvey Rest yearlings, 1, W. H, TTivrvov; 2, T. W. McCaugherty. Best foal. .1, G-. F. Russell; 2, T.

The house plants and cut flowers were very good indeed, although not so numerous as in former years. The fruit display xvas first class. No better currants and gooseberries could be produced anywhere and the apples proved that such fruit can be grown in Southern Alberta. The bread display this year was lacking in both quantity and quality. What was lacking in the regular ex- hibition was made up in a special by the Taylor Milling Co. 7.'his exhibit took the form of a free lunch made of fresh bread made of flour from this year's of Alber- now on a month's tour of Alberta. "How is the Act being enforced in the reporter asked. "We find the authorities-in Alber- ta are very ready to respond to --iny representations by. our organization with reference to "violations, of-'-the'-' Act, and on attention being drawn to certain cases the department aas- immediately instructed its represen- tatives in the locality concerned to give warning, and where this is neg- lected to prosecute." "Without making invidious com- parisons, I may say that the act is better enforced in Alberta than in any other province of the west. Peo- ple have every reason to be grateful at the disposition shown by the At- torney-General and his deputies to give the Act a reasonable enforce- ment in the province." Speaking of the' Sunday running of trains, the secretary said that the Alberta government were decidedly more energetic in 1.his regard than the sister provinces, and thus far is the only one that has taken up that question seriously. "The policy of the Alliance has been to confer with the railways _and secure voluntary recognition of the Act, and Dr. Moore, the general sec- retary, has stated that 95 per cent, of the violations that have come to the attention of the head ofnce in Toronto have been corrected without prosecution."
