"NATIONALIZED (.'aiilston, Dec. agitation is on at present to amalgamate tlic Ag- ricultural fairs of the towns of Ma- gfutli. and Ciirdsioii idea of amalgamation originated Hen the enterprising secrc tary Of Magrath Agricultural Society and the proposition is being taken lip enthusiastically by tlie secretaries m oilier towns. The matter ot pushing Ihe enterprise has fallen largely on secretary, .1. Card. Mr. t'ard bus communicated witli F. T. I loll and W. Tail of Haymond, in an effort lo have the matter final- ly decided for Haymond the annual meeting of that society. The wisdom of the move will be seen in the sug- gestion that a lair shall he held in each town only once in three years. It is believed that in this way an agricultural lair can he made to pay rather lhan go in the hole as all of Ihe three arc doing at present. In this way south-western Alberta will be put prominently on the map and a price list will be possible that will compare favorably with Lethbridgc ami other large towns and cities. The expense of running a large fair will he little greater than a small one. Threshing is iairly well done in the Cardston district. West oi town there are a few stacks still waiting, but all grain can now be said to be safe from any weather conditions that- might prevail. The Board of Trade arc busy still with details of the business relating to the shipment of Ircight tor the S. Reclamation service. It is hoped that soon everything will be settled and the stuff coming in. A few local land sales have been re- ported this week indicating that the public eye is still on Cardston matters of real estate.
