The boosters were on the 'war jmth and the people oE tho goodly terri- tory from -hore to Cardston knew it. There wasn't anything half-hearted about the way it. was done, and if so- da to bankers, -merdumts and other business men unbended for a while, aiirf gave vent to fusty lung work, made rooter rattles work overtime, and rang cow bells, it was all for a purpose. And the purpose succeeded admir- ably. It was to arouse lui-ereat in the big event to bo pulled off in beth- ''Ijridgfi on October and the week following. The South country ha's always stood loyally by this city, and past is to 'bo ocliipsed by the achievements this .coming October.

Cards Urn was tho next order, -and for miles the train passed-through one of the richest ag- ricultural districts in all Canad; At 'Cardston a largo crowd was at tho station, and as the train pulled in the crack Cardston band played a welcome, and the people cheered. Headed toy the Kilties, a procession formed and marched .to the exhibition where a -monster Pioneer Day celebration was irr progress and the visitors were recorded another re- ception. It was getting" on to six o'clock, and the order' sounded to pa rude Cor sup- per. Knowing something of the prow- ress'of-the Cardston ladies as cooks, and added to .this an appetite worked up en'.route to the snug little city, disposition to disobey or dere, the handsome Oddfel- lows' hall was filled with two hundred hungry excursionists. It didn't make any difference ho'w hungry they were. The, Cardston ladies w.ere there with tbe goods, and a supper was nerved well to vindicate tko pro- verbial hospitality of the people o1' Cardston. .Mayor Hammer occupied the'chair'of'honor, and in a few words welcomed the guests and bade them fall to. And they fell Just what conception the ladies of Cardston have of 'L-ethbridge capacit- ies for putting raway grub was not stated, but-if thoroughly enjoying the tempting food is a compliment, the of the visitors seeing the town, but I good handsome the pipers 'band led the procession to i 'vantage spot, 'where three lines of railway could be seen, and topK up position. Mr. .f. B.

Mayor Hatch replied for the city and expressed appreciation of the wel- come. and -invited Stirling people -to come to Lcthbridge and return tie visit. Bishop Brantley was, called, for; and m a, earnest words rea sou of the success ot the -people here was that chej in their coun try. "Mi Tolin T Burni in a words took his -favorite theme, the Congress; for a text, and urged tho 'Stirling neo- pie to come stiong with a liibit, and to commence right awayrat getting it ready, A- few; more skirls from 'the pipes, and the train Vas 're-boarded aud a start made for the Sugar towa. At Busy Raymond Rajmond nas reached on schedule time, and there was quite a" represent- atue to meet the It would have been much larger but for .the fact that Raymond people are a neighborly bunch, and were at Ma- grath .helping, the sister town cele- brate Pioneer JJ-n Mayor Evans was there and that is saying a lot, for the mayor is fully representative of his people. He; is a splendid speaker, in fact one of the best heard on the trip. He expressed pleasure In 'behalf- of the people in welcoming the visitors and aaid .that the heartiest co-operation of: the peo- ple of Raymond would be extended in helping to make the Dry-Fawning Con- gress a credit" to 'this -South country He said that Lethbridge a few short years ago was a aural 1 prairie town, iuid its rapid (jcpanaion was a cause for wonder and surprise. In 'the lexi- con o-i Lethbridge was apparent- ly no such word as fail. He predicted n great. success for the Dry- Barm ing Congress, aud saati Raymond, would be at it. Mayor Hatch replied to the civic welcome, and introduced 'Mr. F. W. who spoke for the Congress and paid a graceful tribute to the Su- ir town. Big Time at Magrath On lo Magrath was the.

A great- shout greeted "the; artd- many -were'.', the predic-j tions, that he would soon he a major-! general. In felicitous terms, the or returned thanks .for the welcome, and Mr. Downer was introduced, and paid a few deserved compliments to the town of Magmth, and, of not forgetting the Dry-Farming Con- gress. Air. J. W. McNichol was next intro- duced, and, 'waving a fine-looking bou--, quet, of flaxr in full bloom, the Leth- bridge hooster said it was but an or- dinary sample of Ihe jiro'dnntlvenesa of the rich Magrath district. He was., looking to Miffrttii to uphold the ies of Cardstoo may consider them- sehes fullv repaid Lethbridge ifolk: enjoyed that meal, and the heartiness.of the welcome to the festive board 'made the supper all the mbNTen joy able There was some noise when it was air over. top.

Such a noise never before was in the-pretty valley The' rattles-rattled, the cow toolls rang, and sang the praises of their (hosts, !llld there was certainly doing for a few minutest After the supper a big bunch of hot air balloons ..were sent up, and while the kiddies werte supposed in the wire and get a onlj a few succeeded in doing so Those balloons out billooiied any ch cus balloon ever seen.

All the speakers boosted Dry-farm- .ing Congress, and there isn't a sha do TV of doubt but that.Cardston will i big nidi viduai exhibits at the big.moot here in Octob-ar. A feature of the .meeting was the rendering of a couple of anthems by the Cardstoa Choral Society, about one hundred strong, under the baton cf Prof. There was a furtive wish in many a Lethbridge heart Mat 'if the choir belonged to Leth" Too.-m.uch praise.could not 'be given the singers and the visitors, wcro giv- en, a. faint .idea of ,the. treat in store for LelhbrJdge. when thes.e singers in- vade Aba city at the time of'the Con- gress, .Mr, .Dowuer In complimenting them., said, be had been in the big temple at Salt Lake City, and could truthfully" say that the singing there did not surpass what he had just list- ened to.

Canon McMillan PraUes "Kine- macolor" Durbar The following letter has oecn re- ceived by Uio management of the .Majestic Theatre praising the Durbar pictures In Altu., July 22. Gentlemen: Please accept my thanks -for complimentary ticket to a timid exhibition of Klnemacolor pic- lures oT Durbar ami my. deep regrets that be-cause of my absence from the city I -am unable to be present. Hav- ing seen the Klnemacolor pictures of the Coronation In the last year, it was one of my regrets that my holiday was to take place when the pictures were to be given in Leth- bridge. What ''was my joy, therefore, when I read Ju the Calgary papers that -they were being given In Calgary and I was enabled to see them in passing through that city last Mon- day. To say that 1 was delighted is to pu't it mildly. My great wish was that these same pictures might be shown In every town and village of our country. They 'would give an added impetus to bur; already loyal Canadians and make us all proud to be part of th-e Great British Empire that in one part alone could carry put such a magnificent pageant as that shown toy the pictures. We have taken1 the opportunity of writing back to many of our fiends in the city advising them to go and get their friends also to attend. 1 believe' nothing of such an educational value or of-greater, pleasure has visit- ed pur-.ctty. wish the management every success in its efforts -to put such good things -before the people of L-ethbridge, and I hope wherever the Kinemacolor Go. of- Canada go they may meet also with every success, which they so fully deserve with this new discovery in photographic sci- ence. Believe me, Sincerely yours, "W." V. The .Great Albinl The forthcoming engagement at the Majestic Theatre for three nights, commencing next Monday night of the Sreat Albini-Avolo Aggregation of. world-famed stars is of such import- ance that an extract from a recent ssue of Bu'tte, paper is given herewith: "Aibini makes good the claim that he is the greatest illusionist and ma- gician before' the American public to- day. His marvelous work must be seen before you can understand. It would require columns of this paper to describe them. In addition to his wonderful illusions seen here, he him new ones. Over 000 has been, expended on his act alone. AJbini does not carry xlie ordinary magical act as heretofore, but a large and costly production that Herman or Keller in their palmy days never dreamt of." In addition to the incomparable Al- binf, there, are ten other -feature acts included in a performance that lasts for ..two and one half hours of solid enjoyment. These artists have won their spurs through the display of of ,a, high order in the theatres in which they have played in Eng- land, the, European continent, and througnou't America.
