(From Our Own CorresoonflontI Iiarona, July 25.-A rough citlmato of tho now buildings erected, in tho village nlono during tho past twolvo months, places tlieir valuo at about $150,000. This may seem a small item to dwollors in cities, but there ^aru tow villages in Alberta, or anywhoro olso, that can equal It. The value oE hutldlngs constructed during'. tho sanio period In the surrounding district would exceed tho village osti-ninto by a wide margin. The cpinmitteos of the Barone anil Whitolako Churches have decided to discontinue tho practice of holding tho service at each place In the afternoon on aUornato Sundays. In future tho Whitolako servlcos will bo a 3.00 o'clock every Sunday and tho Barons at 7.30.  At'tjie church sorvlco on Sunday ovoning Uev. ilr.

AWARDS IN HORSE CLASSES AT THE FAIR PEOPLE SrtOW THEY WANT THE BEST POSSIBLE. Whenitlie greatest crowd In the-his-, , tory of an exhibition in this'city packed the fair grounds yesterday the, measure of the appreciation of the people of Sunny Southern Alberta.for the efforte being put forth by fair board to put the Southern Alberta fair on a sound and permanent basis once more was shown. And by the crowds which attend today and to-morrow will next year's efforts pi the board be measured. There Is no masking the fact that the livestock exhibits except in certain classes are not ^vell filled this year, but that le not a bad feature. It Is noticeable that few large eastern show herds are here. Most of the livestock on the grounds Is Alberta-owned and bred, and that will be encouragement for other Alberta owners to "enter their etock next year. The attondanco on Thursday proved, when the grandstand -was sold out, that the people of Southern Alberta will support a fair. It Is now up to tho directors to. commence planning right sway for a bigger and better one next year wltb empUaela to- be placed on the livestock end of the program. We can do It if we educate the owners to phow thoir fltock, TELERHONIC CONNECTIONS IWITH MOVING TRAINS." AauQcesatul tost o� telephone com- " 'Clydesdale brood mare, with foal by 'Bide-1st,- W. D.
