Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 27, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SAlUflDAY, JULY 27, m3,^ THE liiTMBRIDGE DAILY HERALD t�.VGE SEVEN : NEWS Of THE BIG Mike Hastings Champion BuUdogger of Stampede MIko Hastlnfen te the champion bull-dogger of the stampede. No oncp of the pcrformerB cun rob him of th^t honor. In the most hnzardous of all atampcde evontB, tho winner of the. 1917 championship hero has led the fleld-^vory day. On PrlSay h� repeated the trick by making a gr^at throw ,'aijd pinning his Bteer to the .ground (n Sflji seconds. His time ifor the four days Is: Tuesday "^28% seconds, Wednesday D3U second^, Thur8da> 39% seconds, Friday 30%'seconds. Last year Mike turned the trick hero In 23 seconds, which Is the Canadian record. He Is out to break it before the stampedo is over. The rain, which started to fall about three o'clock on Friday afternoon, bringing tho stampedo to a close at four, was responsible for a couple of fiasly accldenfa in the bucking contests. Katie Canutt, of Coltax., Wash., �rho had- hard luck the previous day, ftad her foot.pinned under her horso when it slipped and fell a few feet Crom tho .chute, and she was carried off. It was first stated that she had (her leg broken,'but later it was announced that she wks not eeriously Injured apd.would ride on Saturday. Noll Campbell had a similar experience, but the horso got up and It was only with difficulty that Campbell got his foot loose from the stirrup to ave being dragged. What might have been a nasty accident but which he turned to account, happened to Jim Massey, tbo 1912 Calgary champion, in the bulldog-ding contest. His steer collided head-on ivlth the. fence, near the Judges' �tand with Massey hanging on. The �yire on the fence caused tho steer to Tobound. Massey stayed with it, and put his animal down In 39 seconds, "which was second fast time for the day. Tho huUdogglng all through was the most exciting event of the day. OrvlUe Banks, dt Pendleton, licked a tough-necked critter and struggled �'lth him for one minute, 35'/^ eec-onds before making tho throw. Jim Daley, of Great Falls, wrestled with his for fully two minutes, riding Its head and taking all kinds of wild chances, but was compelled to give up finally. Miko Hastings made his throw directly In front of the movie camera. He turned tha.steer over directly on top of hip, for tho prettiest throw of the stampede. In the riding with saddlee Slim Al- len drew Scarhead, and as usual he bucked directly across the track, piling Into the 'fence in front of the grai� The abrupt close to the day's proceedings Interfered with several of tho main events,, but all the boys are hoping for good weather to-day to ride off the finals. Among those who witnessed the stampede yesterday was .Miss Stinspn. It is the first stampede i;he has ever seen, and she thinks the boys take greater risks even tiian the 'filers. The Rotary Club and the Commercial Travellers were also present in. a body. The grandstand was well filled, tho crowd being estimated at about [),000. Having received an Inheritance of about 12,000,000, of which ?638,780. 01 is in cash and' the rest in gilt edga securi^tiej, Guetav Schulman. 21 years old, enlisted as a. private in the British army at the British and Cftnadian Recruiting JWs&lon,' iNew York.

' AN EXPERT IN CHARGE OF THIS LINE OF WORK. E. AINSWORTH, Manager SOLDIERS OF THE SOILEVENTSAI THE STAMPEDE STAWIPEDElflVlES" TO APPEAL ON HIT One of the new features, at the fair this year was the program put on by the Soldiers of the Soil of Southern Alberta on Thursday morning. At 10 a.m. a procession of farm teams hitched to stock wagons, grain tanks and other farm vehicles and several saddle horses, all driven by S.O.S. boys pfir-aded the town. Flags, S.O.S. pennants and other sign decorations wel-e evi; dences sufficient to indicate to the spectators on the street what all the excitement was about. The music rendered by the Letbbrldge brass bahd did much to attract'the attention of the crowd's that thronged Fifth St., to this debut of Southern Alberta's youup; agriculturists. Enroute to. the fair grounds the procession stopped In front of the Y. M. C. A., where A. K. Smith, photographer, took their pIc: ture. Their entrance to the fair grounds attracted not a large cro*d but many who were interested in knowing what the boys, wore doing at farm work. Strange to say, yet characteristic of what the S.O.S. movement is doing, only one of the boys present was country bred, all the rest being city lads, one all the .way from a Va^ office in Winnipeg. Mr. Lettlngwell, M.P.P., of Warner, was present to take charge of and judge the first contest which called for the harnessing and hitching ot i two horse team to a wagon. Five cpn testants entered and five teams wore lined up for the affair. Mr. Lefflng: well read tho conditions of the contest, gave the word and the boys started. The calm certainty with which they went to work Indicated that their city training was *not interfering in any way with their c'ftciency for farm work. When the work was dohe and tho judge stepped forward to award the prizes, all the boys were sitting In the seats of their wagon�, their line" in hands, with teams all. almost in a state of readiness to drive oft. The Judge expressed his satisfaction with tho work the lioys did and awarded tho prizes as follows: R. Van Haaricm of the E.vperlmental'Farm, Lethbrlilgo got the first money easy, J. Gould, of the Coaldale district, got second. Paul MatBon, of the Experimental Farm, thlrdT. Archie McKenzie ot Purple Springs,' fourth, and Allan Hamilton, of Lethbrldge, fifth. Mr. Leftingwell's lecture on tho humane method of harnessing and bitching horses was much appreciated by the S.O.S. boys and many farmers wHo gathered around. He denounced the method of tying four horse.i together bit to bit; while at work on the fatm as inhumane and said it sh'ould be against the law: With extra' straps which he had with him for the occas Ion he dei^nstrated a simple, convou-iont niothbd which would give ft driver absolute control of his horses liiid yet give each horse perfect ease. Ho said the horse, the farmer'."! best friend, would only reach the acme ot efficiency when allowed to do hia work as comfortably as possible. Everett Hunt, a local farmer was lu charge ot and judged the second con' test-digging a post-hole 2% feet deep and setting a post. He awarded the prizes as follows: 1st, Paul Mat-son; 2nd, Archie McKenzie": Trd, R. Van Haarlem; 4th, Allen Hamilton. The first two boys did the work in less than six minutes each. . Captain Porter staged contest No. 3, rising supposedly at 5 a.m., dressing, �addling a horse and riding once around the ring. Allan, Hamilton made a speedy getaway for first place with Ernest Mercer following cluvflly ou his heals. Archie McKenzie arrived In time to get third place. The pto anting cntest was in charge of J. B. Wllkie The boys were each to eat a plooo of pie and on finishing whiotle. The pie* were Kirkby's and were relished by the boys. Archie McKenzie tlW Winnipeg boy at Purple Springs having the largest larynx got his tucked away first, Allan Hamilton was the secohd to look around tor more pie. Paul Mat-son who was acting oh instructions from his physician to eat carefully finished some time later getting third place. I These contests accom^llstaod the purpose the S.O.S, movement Intehded th^y should In demonstrating to tbQ farmers of Southern Alberta the possi-blltty of 'teen age boys from tb^e oitietf being ot real service to them as hired holp. The contestants satisfied judges that they could,eat well, sle^p well and work well, three outstanding essentials to success. in the business of farming.

Numberless refinements add that .finish, smoothness of operation, sturdiness of construction, that make this car heaping value. The changes in the motor out-distance all recent light-car engineering. With larger,cylinders, improved carburetor, larger radiator, fan, and water-jackets, the Gray-Dort motor reaches a new record foi* power, speed, acceleration and economy for a car of this size. Our body-designers have paralleled the success of our engineers in the new, modela. The higher radiator gives a new aiid smarter sweep to the streamline body. French-pleated upholstery is another big-car feature. Numberless minor refinements give the fine-car look of the Gray-Dort-double-curve fenders, piano-finish mahqgany instrument board, a special long-lasting finish of wonderful lustre. From every standpoint of service, comfort, performance, appearance and price, you should see and ride in the Gray-Dort. The five-passenger tourittg car is tt,195; the five-passenger Gray-Dort, Special'beauiijully finished and with extra details oj. equipment, is %125 more; the three-passenger flenr-de-lys roadster is $1,050.
