"That this meeting believes that the fullest success for tho educational agricultural feature* of a fair, as well as the agricultural business features, can best be arrived at by co-operation throughout the whole district in bringing the exhibits to one central fair; and that tho difficulties which many of the Agricultural Societies find themselves in have arisen from having too many smaller fairs."

The committee consists of Mayor Hardle, Commissioner Grace, the members of the Lethbridge Agricultural Society directorate, and .Messrs. Dunham, Brymner, Home, Stncey, Simpson, Virtue and Ursen-bach.

Ray Knight and Secretary McXicol went out yesterday after the meeting to plan the changes necessary and work will be started right away. Meantime the committee in charge of the stampede, under Ray Knight, is lining up the events and making all'provision for the horses and riders who will appear. The stampede will be the largest event of its kind ever staged In this district, and It is going to be one of the best. All events will be pulled off immediately in front of the grandstand. The platform will be removed, also the judges stands.

Tho rain doos not seem in general, as such of tho town and wost it has not rained so mwih. Lo'ts of wind also camo with It, blowing over small buildings and cleaning tip tho alloys, A few ot the breaking rigs started up again and summer fallowing Is much easier on tho horses. Tho spring plowing was drying out but with these heavy rains and prospects of more it should make a fair yield. Quito a little mustard is seen this year In tho fields and should have immediate attention. MACLEOD. Macleod, July 16.--Crop reportB from the southern part ot tho district indlcato that a genonil rain would bonofit tho growing crops very much. The growth is very fast, these days, and much of tho early sown Is heading out, and has plenty of moisture to mature tho grain, tho later sown, also that on stubble Is beginning to show signs ot tho need of rain, and the weather Indications nro that showers will bo In tlmo to snvo all, also to insuro a crop. During the week showers foil on tho lift In wost, also on tho north of tho river, and onst of tho town, leaving only small portions for tho coming days to receive their tdinro. PINCHER CREEK. P.lncher Crook, July 14.-Tho crops in this district, nro In need .of rain. Timothy Is tho worst sufforcr, but all crops need if. A c.ouplo ot showers passed over the district on Friday, but. they woro scattered and missed several places. Sitinmorvlow received tho greatest benefit according to reports as they had a good shower which has done a world of good to tho crops there, mostly wheat. Fish-burn also got :i good sprinkling, and as thero Is considerable timothy in that district, it will do a world of good. Tito crops to the west of town nro snfo for a week or so yet as they can stand a dry spell longer. Hunch grass hnylng lias commenced and is a good yield, Tho timothy crop will not bo much more than halt of last year, according to the general opin* ion. CLARE3HOLM.

With a few more day such as wo have been having tho crops will bo as far ahead if not farther than thoy woro the same time last year.

"Meat Ma at the Palace" be called at some point in'�the south country within a couple ot months to develop all plans for the district fair for Lethbridge next year and w^rfc Will be started immediately on mak- j ing it a success. 1 With next year's big fair in Lethbridge thero will be held a stampede In which the stampede promoters of the district will be able to show their abilities. There Is no district in Western Canada with bo many good riders and horses as Southern Alberta and the stampede feature of the 1018 fair will be the big'drawing card. It will take the place ot the usual platform attractions and of part of the race meet. Yesterday afternoon's Joint meeting wak presided over by President Mar-noch of the board of trade who quoted Kipling to his purpose; It ain't the guns nor armament, nor funds that they can pay, But the close co-operation that makes them win the day. It ain't the individual, nor the army, as a whole, But the everlasting team work of every bloomln' soul. Mr. Marnoch said he believed the time had come when closer co-operation towards better fairs in Southern Alberta was both desired and possible, and he thought Lethbridge should do everything possible to make the present proposal from the people of the south country a success, looking to bigger things in the future. R, Bradshaw of MagTath told of the purpose of the meeting from their standpoint They want to put on an* entertainment that will do tfcem justice and at,the same time clear up, their debts.jso that they would be able to outer ah amalgamation of fairs with a clean slate. jRay Kolght of Raymond said that HOI, DRY SPELL (Continued prom Fhojjt Paob) rfr'Mivfyl all of the rains which fell to the east and west of here. This section is In need of a good general soak' ing rain which if it comes this week, will immensely aid the crops and bring them on to a good yield. Otherwise the yield will be only fair, although there are some good individual crops in the section. RAYMOND Raymond, Julv 1G.-A rain 5s seri ously needed here. Unless it comes right away the spring crop will be lost. The summerfallow grain looks flue yet, though. MAGRATH Magrath, July 15.-Crops in the Magrath district are standing the dry spoil very well and a rain at an early date would bring the yield up. Early grain is headed out but not very tall. In Borne parts it is getting pretty dry and others not Buffering. COALDALE Coaldalo, July 15.-Haying has been the order of the day hero for the past two weeks. The weather, while hot, has been ideal hay weathor. The alfalfa has been engaging tho attention GILLETTS LYE so far but the timothy will bo ready in a week or ten days. We need rain badly. The rains of two weeks ago passed all around us but only gave us a sprinkle. There is not a farmer but would gladly welcome ^ three or four days of a wet spell, hot merely a few hours' rain. It Is surprising how-well the grain Is doing In spite of the continued heat. Those who can, have been Irrigating the#lr wheat for the past two weeks, *,The later grain; seems to be in less danger than the | early. \ COWLEY Cowley, July 16,-In isolated Instances there was rain enough last week to help out the spring crop, but speaking generally the spring crop in this district is going to fall and fail badly unless a very speedy change takes place In the weather conditions. The fall wheat crop and such spring crops as are on summerfallow will make a crop, but all the rest of the crop is in grave danger; the unfortunate campaign for "increased acreage" had no doubt the effect of increasing the acreage hereabouts, but the yield will not be thereby increased because an enormous proportion of tho "increased acreage" has been put in on a "weti year" basis and the temperature and drouth of the past month are rapidly putting all that kind of crop out of business. The hay crop will not bo more than half a crop, labor is scarce and dear and getting scarcer and dearer. MILK RIVER Milk River. July 1G.-On ^account of the great heat, crops are rushing toward maturity. Wheat is heading out and although the dry hot weather has injured the crop to some extent the danger of frost is now reduced to a minimum. Thero have been some local showers, but no general rains for some three or four weeks. Wheat on well prepared summerfallow shows tho least injury from drouth, while that stubbled In is beginning to fare* badly. Gardens properly taken care of are still doing well. Pastures arc getting rather short although stock still looks I well. A largo acreage of new prairie has been broken. Farmers still plowing summerfallow, of which thero will not probably bo as much as usual. BOW ISLAND . Bow Island, July 16.-Your correspondent has been over the land adjacent to this town and finds that the crops are in very good shape and that If they have rain soon this point will be in position to compete with any other In the matter of grain to be shipped again this year. Special mention should be made of the field belonging to Frank Ream which now stands about waist high and very heavy on the ground and if weather conditions are favorable from now on this Held, should yield forty bushels per aero, and that is only a sample of many more fields, hut it re quires some more rain for the early grain and tho late grain Is needing It very much now. GRASSY LAKE. Grassy Luke, July 15.-The crops' are In splendid condition, both north and Bouth of town. The early sown grain Is all headed out, the later fields aro coming out in the.shot blade. We have had two or three good showers this week, a good hoavy rain Monday night, accompanied by a good dash of hall, but we haven't heard that any damage was dono. MoBt of the farmers are now putting In their time breaking, -the soil Ibeing In excellent crifcditlon. Very little hauling is bemg � done these' days. - TRAVER*' Travers, July IB.-Heavy rains have fallen the past tea' days.
