Tho Dominion minister ot agriculture has announced that the Dominion grant will pay tho other halt of the cost but I'lnal arrangements in that oonn'oction liavo hot yet been male. - -----______" Hope Weather Will Clear For Rest of Week-Judging Proceeds "The feed probloni is solving Itsolt, and 1 believo all'\ho stock in tho country will come through sallsfnc-lorlly." This is tho opinion of Hon. Duncan Marahall. minister ot agriculture!, who is in the city today to olfi-cinlly open tho fair and stampede. "Tho government has had represeu-latives throughout tho province and thoy have siiccoedcd in locating a largo anmunl of hay and much good range. Cattlo and sheep are now taken to tho range, and the hay will he cut and shipped into tho districts that arc sliorl of toed, so that, taking It altogether. 1 think that conditions will be very good this winter. "This rain is alao going to help a great deal, lil tlie north heavy rains the past tow days aasures a large crop of food on fields which previously did not look as It they would mako a crop ot uny kind. The oats will also make a good crop In tho north. And In the south a few good rains would result in a freshening ot the range.=>, so that a surprising amount ot teed may yet be obtained. In 1914, when conditions on tho ango were Just as bad as thoy are now, late summer rains produced a fine crop of grass on the prairies and the stock came, through the win ter in fine shajio." Hay Situation. Speaking of the hay situation in the north Mr. .Marshall said he thought that the Lesser Slave bake region would produce 50,000 tons. Machinery tor cutting it will bo shipped In at half rale, while the cost of transportation ot the hay from the loading point to tho feeding grounds in tho south is being borne by tho railways and government. Thus the coat ot feed Is really only the cost of cutting and haling and hauling to tlie railway. A little enterprise on the part of the stock owner therefore will provide him with hie winter's supply of feed. Crop Failure. Speaking of general conditions in the province, Mr. Marshall says there; can by no stretch ot imagination be considered a crop la the south. A few fields which received exceptional attention in preparation will have a ten to tifteen bushel crop, but on the whole the crop is practically a total failure. However, it. there is a wot fall, thoro ' will he an enormous amount ot land prepared for next year, and the largest acreage in the history of tho province will be seeded. Snowed at Olds. Mr. Marshall had just received a telephone call from Olds before talking to tho Herald and tho report was that the ground was covered v,'ith anow there at the time and it was still snowing. Though the rain and chilly northeast wind (his morning had a dnmpon-Ing effect on the fair, preparations, ro-Bulting in the ponlpjnemcnt of tho parade until Wedncidny forenoon, largo numbers of people vero comlnn into the city, and at noon It looked as if the fair would go on durin,-; the afternoon. At any rale tho judging was to start at two o'clock, and will continue according to tho program until all clasHoa are judged. It was not dnflnltely known either whether tho stampede program for tho afternoon would be ccrrled out. Tho riders and tho stock were all in tliolr places at noon ready to go to 11 at the crack of tho gun, and thougli the afternoon crowd was expected to bo ellm It waa thought that if the afternoon program wore staged it would pave tlio way for a smooth ex-lilbitlon tomorrow. Slater Cities Day when the whole of Cardston, Raymond and Magrath would be on hand. "The Vfet weather. It It docs not continue too long, will liave no ill effect on the attendance," said Manager Moore. "People are ao glad to see rain that they will brave tho elements to he present, while tho farmers, not having anything in particular to do at this time, will come in all the greater numbers. We have .''our days ot crowded programs ;iftcr today, and with any kind ot decent v/ealher wo should have monster crowds." During the night aomo of tho midway tents were blown down by the strong wind, and the occupants had to find a fresli spot In which to sleep. The grounds are taking on tho appearance ot a fair ot the old-time char-actor, and there will he plenty ot amusement tor young and old. and in it them Is al| the iKuipln that you over iioard of.
