The Stewart ranch had xome in the horse classes and won a prize or two. In the sport- ing event Laudoff was second in the 5-8 dash to Beaver Dam Lad and was also third in the Alberta Derby to the same horse, but on this oc- casion he was palpably not himself for some mysterious reason. Ranch Kinr was very unlucky in .the Gen- tlemen's Purse, being left at the post a loag way and then finished third in a field of eleven. This liorse is un- fortunately a very slow starter. The Stewart ranch nominated Ranch King and Star for the Inter-Western relay race which lasted or three days as they made the best total time they were awarded first prize. Some dissatisaction is expressed locally about the management of the local exhibit at the Fair. Of course, it was not realized that the exhibits were to be judged and arranged in order of merit and it was perhaps a mistake that was done because it might happen that a little town for want of funds would be unable to ive an exhibit like a city.

Milk River Milk River, July seems our rainy season is over. It is get- ting quite dry and hot weather now. People round here would like to see more business houses opening up at Milk River. The country around here is getting thickly settled because it has so many advantages. As the country around here, es- pecially to the east is so fast settling up, its a great surprise to everybody why the townsite of Milk River sta- tion is not opened up yet. One hears this complaint from all sides. iiUt people rouiiu. Gers "want is at least two large general stores, a com- plete harness business, and by all means, a large hardware store and a large hotel, also a mill, blacksmith shop and wagon-maker, in fact almost any kind of a business would do well here. If Milk River townsite should be opened up and only half as much ad- vertised as some neighboring towns it would become one the best towns between Great Falls and Lethbridge. Why? Because the country around nere has an excellent soil, with few exceptions, free from stones, plenty of water, the large irrigation ditches adjoin the townsite, it has the swift running stream of Milk River.
