STAJWPEDE WEEK RELIEF; SERBIAN ANO~ LIEF; SOLDIERS' COMFO "QOD SAVE,THE KINO" FOR, FRENCH RELIEF; SERBIAN AND MONTENEGRIN RELIEF; SOLDIERS' COMFORTS Judging is in tull swing In all departments o� the exhibition today and by night most of the poultry and live-stock will bo judged. Well lliled barns are drawing a largo number of farmers who are greatly Interested in tlio stock oxlilblts, and tliey are not being disappointed. There are rather less of the big circuit herds this your than In pa�t years ot the Lothbridgo fair but the individual oompotltion is keener and augurs well tor another year. The fact that the.specially prepared herds are not strongly repre-sentedjs encouragettient for Southern Alberta breeders td fit their stock for next year's show, an. dthe Herald has talked to a number who are profiting by this year's oxperiebce In that regard. A. M. Sleed, the Shorthorn breeder of Stirling, told the Herald that he expected there would be a number ot circuit herd* entered, and was disappointed, In finding  there were not, that he had not entered his herd ot high class animals. TUey were not in the best show condition so ho did not enter them, but ho believes that he could have cleaned up heavily had he been a little mora ambitious. So next year he will be out in force. And it Is the same way with many. Horae Claaaea. Id the horse classos the Percherons ot course are the leading feature, the fact ot the Alberta futurity being Judged here this year having the effect ot bringing the breeders together. There are 10 llllttia In tbe.Iuturity class and ieren stailions entered, and the entrants naturally brought along their older stock, George Lane 6t Calgary la present witli his- bis string, and they in themselves make a wonderful showing. Mr. Lano has always been a consistent exhibitor ,at the Leth-brldge fair, and this year la no exception. Arneatad Broa. of Stavely, Mr. Hunt of Lethbrldge, Mr. Dygert, the local Percheron Importer and Wm. Stewart ot this district are all showing, so that individual competition is fairly keen. Judging In the horse classes-is in progress today, but up till'noon little wasichbwh of the winners. In the Belgian 'classes, A. W. Pitcher of Woolford, with his stallion "Dessert," Imp.,77J20,-. and his two purebred mares, "Sirene," Imp 1575 and "Let Do' Montlgiiies," Imp. 1574, cleaned up ihoat'ot the prizes, showing against Dygert of Lethbrldge and Meeks ot Raymond, Resaert won first and champion, against the Meeka stallion, the Dygert horse, which was entered, not being shown, Lea Qe Mont-, ignles won first female and chatnplon,; while Slrene was second, bea Do Montignles' colt won first and reserve champion in Its cftiss;' Mr. Pitcher al-so:wi>n'&pat and reserve champion with lJls:fllly, Thia sheep and awlne exhibits were stronger *n the ;Whole thatt at any sh�w> ever held in Lethbridjiie,- ' They were judged b^,Jas. McCalg of the department of-i6rlcultufe'at''::Edmon-toii who believes^- Lethbrlde'e. district will shortly come to the fron;. in these departnients. /EspeSfally Til 'slieep as there Is. a nkai-ked .increase this year, and tHo, fact thatiflipiy. ol.the; entries were Southern'AlbJBfta- stuft-added to the attraction for the sheepmen ot the district. ^ : The Sheepr Claaaea' � R-. C; Harvey ot'Lethbrldge-with his Romney Marsh; imported; � "was the only exhibitor in thfeto^gsi-but his stuff was of such-high (juallty.that It would win against almost ahy competition this continent could produce. He had a pen of five two year old Imported Romneys that were a strong and fine quality ot bucks.- He is using them to grade up hiB,ra;nge heri with great success and hie, experiments are attracting wide attention. In addition to his purebreds he is also showing some sheep of theRamboul-let-HampsUlre cross which have a beautiful covering. He also has full pens of ewes. Some of his unshort sheep show'Wool ten Inches in length of a particularly flno staple. Archie Stewart of Lethbrldge had entries In most sections of the-purebred Lincoln classes and won a large number of prizes. He also showed some Lincoln crosses, The Western Stock Ranches of Cluny and H. S. Cur-rie were the principal competitors in the Oxford breed which comprise the strongest olass - in the departtnent. Both had entries in all sections aUd the honors were pretty well divided. Mr, Currie got most ot the Individual championships, but on the other hand, when it camp to the grade classes .the Western Stock Ranches showed a remarkably strohg .class of young stuff, especially in lambs. In the grade ewe lambs they got first, second and third, with, five exhibitors showing, Mr. Wemyss RentOn, manager of,the company is In the-city todfty.a yisftor-at the fair. ...
