Entries for the Pair would close a week before. In the box car would be a man with the exhibition tags all made out ready to put on the exhibits, and he would-take all exhibits other than live stock and take care of them. "The live stock would be placed in the cattle cars, and the train pulled into Lethbridge, where it, would unload, and the exhibits be properly placed. ''After the fair was over the same train would so back to each place, and the exhibitors would come to the station and get their exhibits. "The Pair management would pay the cost of the freight, and the local exhibitor would have no more work cvi-exnense than if he had as usual to take the exhibit to the local fair grounds. '.'As for the people themselves: with a fair the size; that the combined fair would be, arrangements could be made with the railroads to run specials from every place, leaving in the morning; and returning at night, at a single fare rate. . "The sports feature of the fair might be-Ja little-difficult to handle the first ?year, owing- to financial reasons, but jtye. believe that some horse races open tmly to^local' horses could be put on, wh'ich.}jw)uld be of much mere real in. i�r,est^toi the-local spectator than S rape, .whioh,- while it might be a little 1'as'tejvwould .be-between horses that he had never heard of. "ThiB,, however, is not at the moment an Important matter, as It is, wq *�!fevo, the intention of all to Have an agricultural fair, rather than a cir-cui. "There are many other small details which would have to be worked out, but they can easily be arranged. "As regards the financial end of it, Lethbridge is prepared to assume all the financial responsibility of the fair. Will Get Government Support "The issuing of a separate premium list for each place, and the keeping of the identity of each district, will mean that" the usual government grant will be wid fcr each fair, regardless of the fact that they are all held at the same time on the same grounds. "The government grant comes in two pieces. There is the earned grant on the premium list; this grant would, of course, have to be paid to the Board of Directors, managing the combined fair and applied to the expense of the fair. "The other piece of the grant is the membership grant, and this can be made �0c Now boys, hurry up, it's your chance to get one of these warm sweaters- grey, trimmed wiifii blue or red. i Regular $1.00; Saturday ...... ' SHOP HERE EARLY SATURDAY THESE PRICES ARE FOR CASH ONLY - NO EXCHANGE About 20 Ladies' 3-4 Length Sweater ed. The prices range from $7.50 Coats, mostly all white but there are a few color-to $1 2.50 to clear Saturday morning at, each . $4.50 Remember these Prices are for Saturday Only The Big Store j. of Satisfaction which would be an education to the people, a fair which would bring publicity, and which would cause the outsider to sit up and take notice.  "Remember, that at present, we are only proposing to try this for one year but if after a trial we are all satisfied that it is a good thing, and a five-years arrangement can be made between us, Lethbridge is prepared to jump out of the "big eight" circuit in which its fair now is, and go on with this combined fall fair, and put Into it all its financial resources, which include a special government grant and a city grant. This year, as Leth-�bridfe has to l>old its circuit fair in Juno, we will only be able to put la a part of these grants. We also believe that a still further grant could be obtained from the government fcr such a fair as the combined fairs would make, "N'ow, gentlemen, we would ask yo;i to consider this matter from the broad standpoint of a Southern Alberta fair; consider if such a plan as outlined would not be a grand thing for Southern Alberta. "Sink any small sectional differences there may be, and decide to give the combined plan a fair trial this year. , "Remember that, if you decide to do so, the fair is as much your fair as it is ours, and that ytu will have to go home and work for it, boost for it and hustle in its interest, for each place must make a success of its part of the fair, and then we will have a Southern Alberta Agricultural Fair in which we will all have our part, and of which we will all be proud." Favors Proposition Mr. Fairfield inclined to the opinion that the proposition outlined in Mr. McNicol's remarks was an excellent one, inasmuch as it would give greater weight from the standpoint of education and publicity. Fairs, conducted on a small scale did not attract in the same way as those carried on upon a larger scale. Mayor .T. B. Ririe, of Magrath, thought, it would be a good idea for the delegates of the south country to adjourn for a while in order to discuss the matter, and report later to the Lethbridge Fair association, D. J. Whitney was in favor of amalgamating the fairs, as the publicity part of thifl and tha attendance would be much' more in evidence. The successful carrying out of the plan, ne thought, would be a great boost fcr Southern Alberta; as a whole. E. N. Barker was defiply interested in the subject, which he had considered very carefully. As a result o; his large experience, attending falrB, Mr. Barker had no hesitation in savin:,' that he believed the holding of one big fair .Tould prove to be the mos advantageous way of dealing with tlu fair question. ' Mr. Barker strongly advocated the project, and hoped the delegates would consider if seriously. Ex-Mayor Hatch, representing the city, at the request of Mayor Hardle, could see nothing bu* advantage in Mnvinv iihmif the Cj> ,"(&gpunatioa, HANNEGAN CASE � JUDGMENT RESERVE ST. PAUL BRAKEMAN CI.
