Mr. Lloyd's reason foi stating that prices will be high is found in the fact that the ha} crop in the north, although the northerns hate to.admit it, is practically a failure Last jear to hen the north crop a bumper, the southern men, who raise an extra fine quality of alfalfa, were crowded off t he market. The northern farmers raise a good qualiU of timoth) on cheap land, and there was so much hay raised last }ear that ttfe irngat- had no.chance. The whole surplus from the north went on the market, and the price fell to 'a point where the southern: growers could better afford to keep their'crop and feed it The ,in figures that unless he ban get a ton for in the stack, or about a ton 'on the cars .from the average iarm, he nould better dold and.feed his hay; as it more profitable fJ lie product is plac- ed on an actual value basis, and it sannot he purchased for less. But. this price is low Mr. li figures that there an advance this.year of several dollars a'1 ton. The hay "is" not quite so heav> this 3 ear as it was last, but it is of much finer quality The img-ited section to the east of the citv is a veritable garden spot'at the present time, and the sing of the mower is heard-on every hand. Hay- ing is in full swing, and the farmers are taking advantage of the prime ing weather to get crops cut and stacked. The alfalfa: cures so fast in the, swi .that'. cutting .is ready for the stack on the day. 'fol- lowing.

Kihgsbury, the popular postmistress, would be the "telephone girl." Buchanan made a .patriotic speech, emphasizing the value-of Ca- nadian and British citizenship, and urging every settler to become a real actively and intelligently in- terested, in municipal, provincial and Federal affairs. The day being the Fourth of July, the anniversary of the foundation of the American''Republic, from -v.'hich .most of the settlers had come, .the Dominion member paid a graceful tribute to the wonderful de- velopment. oC tho United States. He pointed Canada they 'would enjoy as free government, AS much personal liberty, and as high a type of citizenship as in llieii- native country, and his remarks in this connection were liberally applauded, showing that our new citizens are thoroughly appreciative of their new honie-'iand.

The remainder of the. afternoon was taken up HI the enjoyment of an ex- citing programme of sports and the last 'item had just heen concluded when the big storm broke and the crowd rushed to shelter. The base- ball match between Lucky Strike and Doon'dale proved an. easy victory for the latter nine, the score being 15-7. The horse races created much inter- est ,and resulted as follows: -Pony F.

In the evening, a dance was held in. the fine hall over the store. CITY AND DISTRICT g Celebration at Cameron Field-Sweet Grass Too- A Taste Here A fine big get-together old-fashion- ;.cd re-union took place at the Camer- on field on Saturday under the aus- pices of the Cameron Club, and al- ;thoiigh the attendance was not just as large as was expected, there were four hundred people present, nearly all Anglo-Americans. One of the finest dinners ever eaten out of doors was served by the lad- ies, and their refreshments'were eag- erly sought throughout- :the day.. The principal sport event of'the day was the baseball game Chin and Turin as the contestants. The Chin team succeeded in stowing the away early in the and the final score was 11-5.. The most noticeable feature of the .whole proceeding was the predomin- auce oi the Union Jack, and although the Stars and Stripes were very much in evidence, the British colors flew from the top of each which goes to show that though thero is still a love for the great "republic from which these people came, they arc now U'UB .Canadians. The-GtotiuUS' Fourth was celebrat- ed at.Sweet Grass, and Coutts and also at the Waterton Lakes, where the new -Hazzard Hotel was formally iipened on Saturday. The chief feature at Sweet Grass was the boxing bout between "Young" Ross, a sturdy Yankee, and Jiid Fo- ley of Milk River.. The bout went 7 rounds and was stopped by the ref- eree, the decision vviug handed to Ross. Folcy fought a gooi fight, but his lack of training proved his undo- ing. The first five rounds made an ex- cellent go, both battlers mixing will- ingly, but it was a pretty tame af- fair during the next two. Sweet Grass put a baseball victory over Raymond in the to 0. Lethbririgc' had a little, celebration all her own. Somebody had an irre- sistible desire to touch off a .few and in two minutes the whole downtown section was in an uproar, the drug stores and Chinese shops doing a rushing business in fireworks up until closing time. There Was one policeman on the street when the celebration-commenced, but oth- ers bobbed up in short order. They allowed the firing to proceed until a late hour, when with the aid of spe- cial'men, they put a stop to it. Chief Skelton has the names of half a dozen hilarious Americans who arc said to have used too much steam in throwing lighted fireworks' on the street, and-they, will be hauled up be- fore the magistrate to. answer-foril.'.
