Thrills Galore. It's a whop-o-e-e bunch of boys who ore performing for the delectation of the fans at the par)? tor the 4. Pink Gist of Montana also threw his steer, lila time being 1.29%. Then Jlike Hastings riding for Jim Jlla'ssey, showed that could duplicate tho trick by tlirowing a second steer in one minute., , The ladles' bucking event produced thrills .for.the crowd and tho ladles showed that tHpy could ride too. Those contefltlng yesterday were . Prairie Lily Allen, ot Wilcox, Ariz., MlM Kate Canutt, Colfax, Wash., and 'Mrs. Klolse Fox Hastings. , No Brutality. Tlie steer roping this year is being iconduoted on a different plan. Instead of throwing and tying the steer it is only necessary the catch t^ animal about both horns. This does away with the brutality and savQB killing the animals. Last year f two wore killed. Art Barton, of Medicine Hat, had the rope on his stocM-In 8. seconds after tho word "go" whicfi Is considered very fast time. Other times were; Sam Garrett. 13 secinda, Stan Whitney 371^, John Mullpns 10%, Ohas. Powell 11.-Slim Parker 16, Calgary Red 13H. The cveiA la run oft much more rapidly than under the old plan. Only three out of 10 ropera succeded in roping end tying a calf In the calf-roping contest, The lucky three were Johl^ Mullen of Kngle*' N.M., . who turned the triok jn seconds. Ray Knight showed the crowd he was as young aa ever by doing It In one minute,,'three seoonda, while Tex McLeod took 90 eeccnda, picking a hard calt to handle. Tom Three Persons, riding with his hands tree from the surcingle, made the prettiest ride in the bull-rlding contest. The 2-mile relay race was a runaway tor Parsons ot Poison. Mont., but tho light for second between Chas. � Powley of Drowrilhg and Dutch Sledol of Butte was pretty to watch, Powley nosing out by having tho faster horse in tho last half. He won In the last 100 y^rds. � It waa a Scrqam. The wild horse .race is always a scream and with 10 starters aad 10 bad horses. there was a good windup lor; ihe day's proceedings.

MACLEOD One of the brilliant rope artists at the Stampede. ers. A. Dubois ot Drumheller got away next., Charlie Chortler of St. Kllda was the third man away from tho post while "I'om Throe Persons and MIkQ Hastings were fourth and nfth away. Tom Three Persona had a runner under him, and his main Idea seemed to he to get around that track and get out of the saddle. But when he; was within 100 yards of the wire, he took a dIffGrorit notion and turning ran practically the entire way In the opposite direction, with the result that Morris slipped in first with Slim Parker, a late Starter, second. The Judges for the events were Art Barton, Bill Hyssop and Jack.Orown, Ray Knight and Ad Day wore tho moving spirits, and kept the^performers on the hump. Altogether the itampede is all that was expected ot It, and the crowds to come may expect to lie treated to the. finest frontier performance they have ever had an opportunity to witness. This is Sister Cities' Day, and the.performers are out to extend themselves for the benefit of the visitors. UNIQUE EXHIBIT T One ot the" moot unique and yet one^of tho most Instructive exhibits In the main building is that compiled at considerable trouble by Mrs. Nor-tham, of Albion Ridge. Mrs. Northam has been tor years, living as she does in a windy saotlon ot the country, a student of soil tillage and blowing ond drifting ot the soil. As a result of her study she,has eatabllahed three very vital points: First-The umvlsdom ot tilling the soli till a powdery mulch Is obtained. Rather till for a lump muloU. ^Second-Tilling the land north and south,' Instead of eaat and west, greatly helpa to save the soil from drifting in such a way as to blow out the seed. Third-The value of windbreaks. Mrs.' Northam has gathered exhib-ita of wheat showing the "different growth produced on soil tilled in tho two different ways and protected or .unprotected .by windbreak. This exhibit should :be, the centre ot much Interest to the'farmers.
