Summary of Prizes Won - Business Changes - News of Sugar Town Raymond, Aug. 27.-As was predicted In a recent issue of tho Raymond news the Sugar Town and district figured largely in winning in the Lethbridge. exhibition. There were some classes not represented, 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 department full complement of Raymond's stock was not shown. Ray Knight was the largest winner in the ihorse class, having eight firsts and six seconds, and all but one for Suffold Punch stock to his credit. In this number were two championships, one for saddle horses which was won by Blue Bird, Mr; Ray Knight's gray which has been taking this prize at Lethbridge and other fairs foT the past three years; the other was for Monarch, a Suffold Punch stallion which Mr. Knight bought at the Calgary horse show last spring; this horse weighs ton, and is credited this year with the championship, sweepstakes, arid the silver cup at Lethbridge fair. Mr, Knight as well got 1st and 2nd for yearling mares, 1st and 2nd for yearling stallions, 1st and 2nd for two year-old mares, 1st and 2nd in mares and colts, 1st and 2nd for dry mares, and 1st for Dutch, a 2-year-old stal lion which today weighs 1600 pounds' and was bred by Mr. Knight on his Buck ranch at Raymond. Mark, H. Brimhall was second in order of the number of prizes awarded for horses.

They also showed their race mare, La Doctor, for which they received 1st, and for her foal 2nd. Raymond received prizes for every horse shown and this is a record which no district exhibiting at the fair can lay claim to. On Thursday night Ray Knight ran a match race with Uncle Sam Buchanan. Mr. Knight, rode his chain pionship saddle horse Blue Bird, and it is said made a very easy win, coming in several lengths ahead. In the swine class L. O. Norton was the only Raymond exhibitor.

CHARED $700 IN RESTAURANT RAYMOND CHURCH DID WELL IN CATERING AT LETHBRIDGE FAIR Raymond, Aug. 27.-After reckoning up most of the expenses of the second ward church at Raymond it is estimated that they will clear on their Lethbridge undertaking something in the neighborhood of |700. This of course is not counting anything for the labor which the members of the church here put on the undertaking. The Herald approached Bishop Evans yesterday with the enquiry as to whether his church would undertake to supply the meals for the Dry Farming Congress next October, and be replied that he was not quite sure. The building underneath the grand stand at the exhibition grounds is to be used as an exhibition hall and this will not bo available. The Congress management have agreed, however, to provide a �canvas building of several small buildings in which to conduct the enterprise. This does not seem to satisfy the officers of the church here and it is doubtful if they will do the work.
