Poultry .Exhibit Raymond, Aug. was pre- dicted in a recent issue of the Ray- mond news the Sugar Town and dis- trict figured largely in winning iu the Raymond exhibition. There were somo classes not but in all classes in which exhibitions were placed Raymond was successful in carrying off prizes. Perhaps in no class did the district show up as well as in horses and even in this depart- ment a full complement of Ray- mond's stock was not shown. Tho fair is over and Raymond peo- ple of the second ward are home again resting from their labors of serving meals at the Raymond dining hall at the exhibition grounds. The work undertaken was a stupendous one and greatly exceeded the expec- tations of the most careful members of the "ward. On Thursday 1000 peo- ple were given service in the dining room and on the other days of the week a sufficient number were served to bring tho total considerably over the 3000 mark.' At Hfty cents per meal this would total which will be a nice 'sum to complete tbe improvements which the second, ward church have in minS for their ing house on Broadway. Something of the devotion with which the differ- ent workers labored may be seen in the act of A. B. Scovil, who had in charge .the prov.iding af .vegetables. He left Lethbridge at 10 o'clock at night, drove to Raymond, and, the next 'morning at 4 o'clock bad a load of vegetables backed up to the kitch- en door. The Herald inquired from Bishop Evans and 6hairmau King as to whether the church, would under- take to provide the meals for the Dry Farming Congress, and their answer was that if a satisfactory building could be secured the church probably would do the work, but they were not In any 'way certain that it could be taken up. Talks Straight to Raymond Board It is no secret from the Raymond public that the Board of Trade Is be- hind in its levies to the Associated Boards of Trade, and because of this and a few other things Commissioner Leach felt constrained to write some straight things 'to the board, and the following are some of the excerpts from Mr, Leach's letter: "If a man will not give his support and assistance to his own town out of which he is making his bread and butter there is something radically wrong with that individual. "We have endeavored to give the affiliated boards value received -anc much, moro for tbe small amount ot money we have asked them to con- I'ibuto to our funds. When Raymond or any other Board of Trade joined our ranks our executive committee ooked upon their money obligations as debts of honor and as such the ixecutive expected them to be set- .your board, and every other board in tho south country to stand shoulder to shoulder with us in the fight for a bigger, better Sunny Southern Al- berta! "Tab'er municipal council is this granting, its board and I understand Intends 4o do BO annually until .the town finances are In better shape when the grant la to be Increas- ed to one dollar per head of popula- tion. "If your council have not yet this year made you a grant, I would sug- gest that you get up a monster peti- tion of the ratepayers and get every possible aiame you can to it and then present it, hacked up iby the 'biggest, most enthusiastic delegation you can muster and ask that they give you tills year and ?500 for the next two years each. Put it up to them in no uncertain voice that the Board of Trade members are getting a little weary of -dipping down in iheir pock- ets (and by the way these are generally restricted to about a dozen at the outside) every week or two to finance some enterprise or pay some bill of She Board of Trade, and if they want their town to be a town senso of the word and not be unknown throughout the country- side a "dead" one, tb-ey had better come across and coine across liber- ally. "I wonder if the citizens of Ray- mond would like to see Cardston or Magrath outstrip importance, publicity, and generally. If Raymond does not try and her supremacy in the south .country, as sure'as God made little apples she will lose it, and lose it at 110 distant date at that. Today she. has the lead, and if she but will can keep it. It is easier to cure a sick horse than .re- Object to Poultry Exhibit Considerable .discussion has taken place in Raymond from the probabil- ity of Warrlngton, the big poultry raiser, bringing his exhibit' to Ray- mond. With regard to the matter the Herald rthis week Interviewed F. T. licit, secretary of the Agricultural Society, and he told the reporter that Warrington said he would return about ?50 of the prize money if-the committee would make classes for all the fowl which ,he has to show. Sir. Holt said that -tue Exhibit would no doubt 'be a great attraction for the Raymond -fair kn-ew that there was considerable opposition. The Herald then is'ent to W. C. Stone, director in charge of poultry. Mr. Sfone did not approve the asso- ciation letting Mr. Warrington come in on the ground that he Vas not a bona 0de breeder, he bought simply exhibition purposes. Mr. Stone explained that he would take out of Raymond some or As far as he was personally concerned he had no objections to his .coming, for none of the classes which he would exliibit' wouid interfere with Mr. Stone's own fowl, but Mr. Stone drew attention to the fact that such Ray- mond breeders as Jones, Anderson, Clarke and Kirkham were also ob- jecting and he. doubted whether they would exhibit If Warrington came in.

Lemar's Remains Laid to Rest The body of Joseph Lemar, who was killed while riding Stampede horses at Calgary last Saturday, ar- rived in Raymond, on Wednesday night. The funeral was held on Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock .and under tho auspices of ithe Inde- pendent Order of Oddfellows. regular memorial service was held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints of which Mr. Lemar was a member, and the Oddfellows' service was read at the cemetery. At the church D. F, .Fawns, J. S. Anderson, J. G. Allred aiid Bisho Anderson made addresses in' whic they eulogizedMthe character and lif of deceased. At MID cemetery -McD, Tait, acting chaplain of thi lodge of which the late 'Mr. Lema was chaplain, read tho simple buria service of tbe which thi "When every cent is paid in for his year.

His brother, Earl, is to represent Ray- mond in the bucking contest, and as he inherits many of bis brother's qualities there is a chance that In will bring some honor to Three Links Identified Him The worth of a fraternal organiza- tion has been very in the case of Joseph Lemar who was killed last Saturday ait Calgary. Mr. Lemar was riding at the time without a coat and there was nothing on his person by which he could he identi- fied. Ho was wearing, however, three liiiks, the emblem of Oddfellows-hip, and the Oddfellows' lodge of Calgary immediately gat the wires busy in-an endeavor to find out to what' lodge ha belonged. Tho only reason why the message was not received at Ray- mond soonor is tho fact that there Is no Sunday service at Raymond and it was not- possible to get the message through. Had it not been for the emblem which Mr. Lemar wore the possibility is that he would have been 'buried in Calgary without his relatives or friends knowing it. All the arrangements were "made at Cal- gary toy tho Oddfellows, and upon arriving here the 'body was met and taken charge of by the Oddfellows and laid to rest without a cent of cost to the relatives or friends of the de- ceased.
