Crops looking extra good, and a large yield is generally anticipated. On Dominion Day, the 46th anniversary of Cnnada's hirthday, the set-tlora and resldeats of this part for many miles around began to gather about the school house here to cele-Tsrate the day, until some 500 people had assembled. They were most all fi-ora the United iStates only a few years ago but took as much interest in celebrating Dominion Day as they ever did the national holiday of their native country. So close to the United States this celebration, took place, and on the eve ot their 4th of July that the, eagle could easiily have been heard to scream across the way. But many from the state of Montana came over the boundary to celebrate Dominion Day with us. So on Dominion Day here there was a celebration ot good will and handshaking that will have a permanent and lasting effect on the people from both sides of the international line. The score of the ball game was 6 to 2 in favor of the boys JErom 1-10. Quite a number of exciting foot races were pulled off. The honors in the high pole jump and the running jump were \yon by Sidney Glasgow, with Mr. Graham ot 1-12 a close second. The buoTting contest, which proved to he the most e.voiting sport of the day, caused tho crowd to shut their eyes and hold their breath while some of the daring riders were thrown to ' the ground. The horse Icnown as "Sage Hen," owned by Mr. Thompson of 1-13. caused more amusement for the crowd than the rest. This aniinal was flTst mounted by B. W. Baker. Aftei; a few jumps the saddle girth broke and Mr. Baker dismounted without fofrmality, "Sage Hen" w'as soon caught and another saddle buckled on. Mr. Barnss was the next to try his horsemanship but failed, and also dismounted without ceremony. Mr. Baker then made the second attempt to ride "Sage Hen" but after one of the most exciting and heart thrilling scenes he was thrown to the ground a second time. The next broncho buster was ah. expert rider, Vancleve, but he, lilce the rest, came to the ground on his first attempt, but the second time succeeded in breaking, the outlaw broncho. The liorse and pony races were all good and the ntton'ioon was speiat with one continuous round ol\ pleasure. A largo crowd stayed until the music stopped on the morning of tlw 3nd', when, the merry dancers turned their faces homeward, wishing evei'y day was a holiday.  =. Ret law, .July 7.-The Dominion Day celohratiou came off .splendid. It was a nice day aiid there was a crowd of SOO people all ot whom seemed to enter right into the spirit of tlje day. The big baseball game ca,me' first, when the noted Brunetta club lined up against (he home team. Everyone expected to see a good game.of hall and were not disappointed. At; the end of tho ninth inning the score was G to 6. It was necessary to play the tenth inning to decide the game. The Brunetta secured two runs on good Iiittlng and the home team secured a goose egg, so the sccre ended S-fi in favor of Brunetta. Wc hope a return game can bo arranged when we believe the result will bo different. Other Contests '] Half mile pony race-1, Billy .Andrews; 2. B. Blake.
