DONALDSON'S 801 NINTH AVENUE SOUTH the slogan of the Fair association this year, and the record will show that the achievement justified the hoped-for end. Two days, 20th and 21st, have 1 been one continued round ot good times for all the attendants, wbether youngsters or adults. The exhibits as to live stock were not quite so good as in previous years, but were strong in the beef classes, dairy stock being I somewhat neglected. A tine feature | of the cattle show was the aggregation I of Red Polled dual purpose cattle, shown by J. P. Low. These were imported last fall and winter from the Dakotas. Two classy cows, a splendid herd leader in the big dairy type bull, and four yearlings of exceptional quality served to Introduce the breed to this district. All are registered animals and Mr. Low reports the performance of the cows as dairy animals very satisfactory. Fewer horses were shown than formerly, possibly due to the fact that haying and harvesting are on, and the swine classes also made a poor showing. Sheep were much better and evidenced the increased interest of the farmers and small herd owners. Some specially good stuff was shown by Mr. L. A. Little of Taylorville, his Delaine ewes being fine specimens. The grand stand was crowded both days, and never were the crowds given more entertainment. The midway was well patronized, the ferris wheel and the merry-go-round proving specially attractive to the youngsters, The races were good, but tow local horses participated. The prettiest race was the matched quarter of a | mile between Leavitt's grey and Stat-ford's bay. taken by the local horse by only half a neck. No local horses participated in the trotting races except , the bay horse of E. J. Wood, which I took the 2.18 trot or pace In two straight heatB yesterday. "Car crazy" is the latest psychological disease to strike this region. There must have been around two hundred at tho fair here, and we are getting a late start in this neck of the woods, The Cardston baseball team has made a splendid record this season and the boys as well as their managers are to bo congratulated on their success Washington, Aug. 23- The situation in Russia continued the centre of war \ interest here today with mystery surrounding the nature ot official dispatches the government has received from Petrograd within the last forty-eight hours still undispelled. Today's news dispatches from the Russian capital referring to speculation in Petrograd and Moscow newspapers concerning "expected dramatic announcements of events," and expressing the view of the press that "If no agreement is reached between the contending groups open conflict must follow" were taken to support the unofficial interpretation of the government's dispatches as relating to political conditions within the provisional government and probably undercurrents of German intrigue working for the un seating of Premier Keren sky with either a counter-revolution seeking to re-establish the autocracy or the breaking down altogether of the provisional government and resulting chaos. Whether the official advices deal with an alarming need for immediate physical support of new Russia fay her allies if she is in the face of a menacing military situation was not established, but it is known that the need of sending immediate and adequate physical assistance to Russia has been urged upon the government by all members of the American mission recently returned from Petrograd. This has not applied to the sending of troops, to which a majority ot the mission is opposed but to sending supplies and principally transport facilities. . American officials frankly admit their uneasiness over the tenor-of the confidential advices. SENATE AMENDS PROHIBITION BILL Would Permit Circulation of Newspapers Containing Liquor Advertisements.
