With the largest crowd which ever greeted the opening' (lay of a fair In the success of the exhibi- tion was yesterday placed beyond the confines of doubt. The above fig- ures speak eloquently of the final re- sults. Today the crowds started fair- wards early and there is no doubt that there will be an ever increasing crowd until the fair closes. There were some who went to the gate yes- terday and turned back, refusing to pay the' dollar admittance, and the management was strongly criticised (or. advertising the twenty-five cent admittance fee and raising; it at the last minute.. The directors, however, were able to show good having entered into'a contract with Barney Oldfield which made the higher fee imperative. From this on the admit- tance will be twenty-five centi and those who go" will get their money's 'worth and then some. There is much to describe it is difficult to de- cide where to start.

Some 'were of the opinion that the pan-ers were .trying to teach the farmers how to farm. That, they are butting into a sphere not. their own! The farmers say they quite appreciate the advantages of mlxftd farming., but where is ihe mon- ey to come from, and where is the stock to be By the time the newspaper man receives a dressing down of this kind he is (iiiite humble and pleads not guilty of dictating to farmers, hilt having1 merely tried in a hiimble way to hasten on the good clays coming when every farmer will make more money than is made by raising grain only. j Crack at the C. P. R. And these farm-era who come to ex- hibitions to see the best and hear the latest have other criticisms to make, arid it ig intensely interesting to hear! them roast C. P. R. It, is unite! the fashionable thing in the west to j hold the C. P. R. responsible for all j the evils, but the -farmers seem to j have some cause for complaint. The stock men say that when they did, raise cattle to ship 'to tho 'British! markets the railway company took j over a head for carrying them to j the sea board and .ihe business was s run at a loss. There wasn't a dollar j in raising cattle. It seems to tickle j soni-a farmers to rend of the C. P. R. magnates advocating mixed farming and they are wondering when the an- nouncement-of cheaper rates to bring cattle into the country isxgoing to be made.

The cattle judges got to work and about, j finished the Molstem and Jersey'class- There were several large exhib- itors in both classes nnd the judges j had no easy task In reaching riecis-j ions.

This is the j first time he has exhibited cattle at, a big fair and he is today the proud j possesser of five firsla and six sec- ond prixfift. Jersey's Leading Favorites As wns pointed out yesterday (here are several exhibitors of Jerseys and tho judges had to ocrafch their heads and look for defects in order to dis- tribute tho ribbons.
