But Sky Rocket seems to h'j Tom Three Persons' nemesis. On July 1st here, Tom tried to riele him bnt pulled leath- er at.the second jump. Yesterelay af- ternoon at. Raymond, as a climax to nn afternoon's good riding Tom es- sayed to take it out of Sky Itokot as a special favor. Tom stayed with him for 50 feet, hut about that time tho bronk decided he had had enough and giving reiir-eml twitch, the champion Sky Rocket will be turned loose for tho benefit of the Labor Day crowd next Monday in connection with the CARDSTON AGRICULTURAL FAIR Friday and Saturday, September 1 st. and 2nd.

The stampede yesterday, attended by over two thousand people, was a Bplondid success. "With Hay Knight In charge the program was carried off without a hitch and with a despatch sop and W. .1. Hyssop, of Lethhridge; Bill Brown, colored, Retlge Cooper and Ray Knight, jr., Raymond. The race between Kinsey's horse and Spud Murphy's racing dog pro- vided some keen amusement for tlie crowd. This race was for a side bet of and was won by tho dog. Kin- sey aays he has a horse that can heat the dog if the race is made 150 yards instead of 100, and another meeting may take place soon. It made a good event. Oshorne, of Oregon, and making the leading western Canada fairs, took the quarter mile dash. The mile dash was won by Loss Lund's Silver Roberta, Roberts, of Calgary, second. The harness race was exceptionally In good, the best seen in the south. fact, it perhaps was not known that Stewart's the winner, Is one which is lacking at most celebrations. o[ tno ljest trottevs in the Dominion and a full brother to the horse that won first place at the San Francisco Not for a minute did the program lag, brother to the horse but the brand of sport improved as tho dav progressed. Everyone present was pleased, and today will Bee Hie gramiaiantl again packed when the gram! finals will be pulled off. Finan- cially the stampede ia already on the right siele of the ledger. the steer roping contest Ray Knight probably did the best work. Knight has one of the finest horses In Western Canada for roping and bad It. on his opponents on; this account. One regrettable feature of tho roping was- that two steers received broken lego in quick succession and were shot by the mounted police present on the grounds. Today there will be no rop- ing as the space is a little cramped anil other steers may be killed which Is something the management does not desire. Gus McGregor roped the first steer iiiat sustained the broken leg. In both instances it was purely accidental. In the riding events there was some fast work in evidence. Both horses and steers bucked in genuine, old stylo but the real excitement was started when a bunch, of Hyssop's trained huckers were run into the cor- ral and made their bow before the crowd. The best riding talent were assigned these animals but up to the time of writing they remain uncon- rniered. It is said today will see "Sky- ridden again and this time mastered. The riders all did brilliant work. Tom Three Persons rode some vicious horses Sefore he met his Jonah. Ray Knight, Jr., surprised the crowd with some excellent work, and Doillthobor Jlike and his bucking bull was one of tue best things of the day. The gal- axy of cowboys present at the big stampede includes Tom Three Per- sons, Spotted Bull, Alr.cleod; Lovaring, Frank and Davo -Whitney, W. S.

Aug. first natural turf tennis championship of 11116 was won on the courts of the West Side', club Tuesday when AV. .M. Johnston and Clarence J. Griffin of San Francisco successfully defended their doubles title against Maurice B. McLoughlih and "Ward Dawson of Los Angeles in a four-set match, that would nicely lit a board two feet wide. A young bull also showed class and before corning away A. 13. Ives of Lcthbridge, bought him for Ills ranch near the city. Mr. Kessler had just as good an exhibit of Short- lorus. The cows and heifers were an especially fine lot, though the herd bull was smaller than one might ex- pect to Und. Tlie animals are all a uniformly red color showing a good strain. The Holstein classes were fairly gooel, though not so good as one found in the cattle bred for range pur- poses. One flue bull, the largest at the fair, was exhibited by Jas. Walk- er In the Jersey class the prizes wore "war. by Hay Knight for some bred animals. Disappointment in Sheep The sheep and swine departments were a disappointment. One would expect to line! some especially good sheep exhibits in Southern Alberta hut they were only mediocre. It looks as if all opportunity is being lost to Th winners wrested the tloubles induce farmers to take up sheep. Good exhibits at the small fairs would do much to turn their attention in that direction. And as for the hog classes, they were conspicuous by their absence, and hogs are bringing 11 cents or better, liveweigbt. Are Snow and Mrs. jerkins in the school work.

PRINCESS PATRICIAS GET ACROSS QUICKLY the Raymond farmers forgetting the mortgage lifter, or have they sold i out their herds at the fancy prices? The poultry building was well fill- ed, an exhibit of about 150 birds by brook was the judge and bis task was not easy. In the exhibition hall there was a nice display of vegetables and, sheaf grains on the lower floor while above the laelies' and children's exhibits held sway. In the grain classes, m I-UTO.S Henry Holmes, of course took first Dawson. Except for the third set, in "oLonghlin flashed in his old- time form, the outcome was never in doubt.

His smashes and cross-court, placement drives from close to the net scored many points. John- steMi played a steady game. Diiwson showed flashes of form, bnt on the whole was erratic and much of (he play was directed to his side of the court. Both Johnston and Griffin re- peatedly bombarded him with over- head and half yqllpy drives. The play frequently caught him out of position. The entire first round of the singles ehnmptonshln was cleared without any upset, the more prominent players coming throug'n generally according to form and-ranking. The best match was the five-set contest between Karl H. Behr of New York and Conrad B. Doyle of Washington, which Behr won, ''The sales of Noblemen Cigars have more than trebled during the past three months, lato'y; Have you tried one WILLIAM LAWRENCE DEAD Wat- Hon Lawrence, president of Mm Nation- al Lead company, died here today iu his 67th year, Salmon kept up his splendid reputa- tion also by winning.some tirsts.

J. S. Ander- son was the winner in (be flax class. The exhibits were Judged by R. H. who was in charge of the display from the Lethbridge experi- mental farm, The vegetable displays showed that the season was a little too early for them, but still the exhibits were good. They showed by the winning names that the Chinese and Japanese gar- eicners who abound at Raymond, can garden stuff.

Owing to1 slow recruiting wi-.icb is prevalent everywhere'at present many units are compelled to remain in Can- ada for a ir.iici !oager imriod than they expected. The reinforcements to the Princess Patricias have overcome this difficulty by sending their men over in lota of fifty. In this way- drafts leave every six weeks or two months, or as soon as the men are recruited and practically trained. One draft has already gone overseas and will soon he In France, and only a few more men are needed to complete the next draft. On account of this method of send- ing their men across the Sixth Uni- versities Company never show a strength of much over fifty, which sometimes eivns tha impression that the company is not recruiting. Several splendid men have been tak- en on the strength lately. The number at present on the strength Includes nine qualified lieutenants who are proceeding overseas in the ranks and taking their promotion m England or France. The Patricias is a specially suited unit Cor these men as Major; Gault and the" senior officer always; try to follow the policy of laismg the men from the ranks who know the, traditions and spirit of the Hegimenj rather than taking on men from, other] regiments. At least ten of me officers at present with the Patricia's are who have gained their promotion in] this manner. The reinforcements arc re cruited at Molson Hall, McGUI Uni versity, Montreal, where their training' is faciliated by the use of some of the!
