Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 19, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FHIDAY, JULY If). lOlS TilE LETIinninOE daily MERALil PAGE SEVEN LATEST NEWS OF LETHBRIDGE AND THE SURROUNDING DISTRICT GIVE FLIGHTS BIG GROWDS AR SUGGESTS TOWNS MniuiKci' Mooro ot tho big fair oamo bnck fiuni Atodlctnn lint last nlBlit Willi tliQ contract tor two lUglilH by MIsa Knthorlne Stlnsnii in his pocket, Tho little blrdwomnn who thrillcil tho ^vcst by \\cr fuut of fiylng from Ciil-Kary to Ktlmonton In 2 hours uiid ii nilnutos win mnke two flights In Leth-brldgn on Saturday, thn last day of tho fair, one In tho ufternoou and one In flio ovoiiing. She will aino drive a racing car In a race ugalnsl time. At IMmonlon ^lo lowered the track record to 1.04 and It Is expected that she will brfat this mark here. With a program of stampede, Indian races, and Bpcclal features provided for Saturday, tho last day ot the fair promfsoa to lie one of the best and a big repeat crowd l8 sure to be on hand. Big Crowds ' Mr. Mooro slatew that pront rrowds may be expected from every point nlon/T tho line Xrom as far oast as Medicine Hat. while even Maple Creek Is ulso sendlns a largo delegation. From Groat Palls there are a number of uuto parties coming through, while Cranbrook and Fcrnio people have been waiting for this opportunity to visit tho city. Tho news of (ho cxcei-3ence ot last year's stampede has spread far and wide, and thi! propiira-tiona tor the event this year, which will ho slaged williin lOO feet ot tho grandstand instead of a couple ot iiuiidred yards away are going to prove ft big attraction. Mr. Moore states that tho performers at Medicine Hat wore of iilgh quality but the oven,(s wore ao far from the grand stand that tho crowd didn't get a chance to see everything. This la the very thing tl^nt has boon guarded against here, and on that account tho stampede attraction will rank a little ahead ot anything In the nature ot a wild west show ever staged in Western Canada. Tho midway which la providing tho sideshow attractions at Medicine Hat Is the best that ever attended the fairs in tho smaller cities In the west, says Mr. Mooro, and this feature alone will be worth the price of admission. Tho free attractions in front of tho grandstand which will bo combined with tho stampede and tho horse races each afternoon and evening, will provide programs as full of thrills and action ae a three-ring circus. Accommodation Reports from the Major Jack Rosa Chapter I. O. D. E. which is after accommodation for the visitors show that Lethbrldge .ought to he able to take care of the crowds In good style. The fair board management and tho city will brook nothing in tho way of excessive charges during the fair, and this fact will prove a drawing card In Itself. This was the plan followed last year, and it will be tho case this year again. OXEFOUR NEWS (Prom Our Own Con oSDonannf) Onefour,'July 15.-J. W. Chambers, weed inspector, was around last week ^)ut found it was too dry for weeds to grow. Louis Domuolonaere has returned from St. Kllda and Is again riding for \Vallaco and Uoss. Tho 4tli of July celebration at Com-roy was well attended by Onefour pooplo and thoroughly enjoyed by all. A prairie firo started on tho west Aide of tho Lost River Saturday, tho Gth, but by the energetic efforts of tho settlers it was driven down onto tho peninsula between Loat River and .Milk River, and beaten o\it against the cut banks and "bad land-s" without doing any serious harm. 13. B. Hunson, ot Aldorson, came In WednoBdny to visit his people at Croono's. A now post office is proposed at Anthony's on Section i5-;t-7, and Samuel Cross, mall contractor, has been asked to add it to his route frbiii Manyberrles. ^ Commissioner Freeman is also arranging to handle the largcHt crowds over transporlod on tho street railway system. All cars will run to the park iind in order to keep then) moving without the twiml oxcosslvo waits on tho red lino, n crows' nest has been erected opposito the pavilion in Henderson Park from which cars will bo semaphored where to stoj) and where to pass. By this method it is exjiccted AND FARM IHl This is Suggestion of Prof. Adams At Town Phinning Commission Meeting (.'ommls.sloner Mooch rctinMied last night from the second conference hold In Calgary dealing with the government's iiroposal to remove certain subdivislous from tho limits ot the tour largo cltlea ot tho province. The conferVjuce.was In connection with the town planning convention, and Mr. Adams, of tho Dominion commission of conservation, was the principal speaker. Mr. Adams, according to Mr. Meoch'H report, is rather favorably in- to bo able to carry one-third more (.ijncj to the ptoposai to koop farm passengers. Good transportation to i ^.^J^^^f^ ^vithin tho city and to use them the grounds at five cents each way is m,. Mooch's report follows: one of tho thingj) visitors like about tho LothUridge fair. It not necessary to take a jitney at SO cents each way, thus reducing the cost of seeing the fair. The Fees Entrance to the grounds this year will be 50 cents for the afternoon program and 25 cents at night. In the afternoon tho gi'andstand seats wHl be 50 cents and tho reserved seats 50 cents additional, so that one may have tho best seat in the stand for a total admission cas.t of ?L50. This was less than was charged for tho stampede last year. Tho afternoon programs will start at one and tin five while the evening programs will run from about C.30 till 10 o'clock. This double program is a new feature ot tho big fair and is bound to prove The morning session was given over entirely (o .Mr. Adams, who onllincd the pienerul principles ot assessment and mndo It dear that our,system of taxation in Western Canada was in the nature ot an ex-provincial. The system in voguo here was a change from what might be called the established system of taxation and apparently was not sound. We had gone farther than Henry George contemplated and It was necessary to recoK-iilza that there was no halfway house between individual ownership ot land and private ownership.- Land is a necessity tor production and that does not mean-production ot food only. Mr. Adams strongly advised having farms outside tho city limils and gave numerous instances such as tho City ot Slielfleld. England, which city had Hoasment there.

This concern, in a recent advertisement in tho Tniro News advified people to buy a barrel of Hour and a sack ot sugar. In the case of sugar, the statement was made "the price is advancing."
