ST Ry 45,000 DURING Well it's all over, and Lethbridge, from being a frontier town for a week with high hats and jingling spurs to the tore, settles back to the g�rb of 20th century civilization. What was without doubt the best stampede ever staged in Southern Alberta, with the strongest collection of performing cowboys in attendance, is over, and thousands of people have gone home voting Lethbridge the leading round' up town of Western Canada. "We're all coming again next year" said the cowboys. "Well, we'll be here too," eaid the crowd. So it's all settled. Stampede Next Year "I expect we'll have a stampede in connection with the fah- next year,' said President Fairfield to the Herald. "We -will make it a three-day affair, and for the other days we will get special attractions of a different nature. The crowd likes a stampede, and every summer they are ready for It." The championship in the bucking with saddles was decided on Saturday evening. With the riding for position in the Friday day money, which went to Slim Allen for first place, Dave White tor second and Tom Three Persons for third, the bucking cham-tplonship had narrowed down to three men, Dave White of Pendleton, Ore., Slim Parker of Medicine Hat and Walter Whitney of Lethbridge. The judges unanimously placed Whitney third on the week, but as neither White nor Parker had been thrown it was necessary to make another ride. The two worst horses in the corrals were picked, these being Reservation ' and Ray. The riders drew for horses and Reservation fell to White, Parker taking Ray. White mounted old Reservation and the gates of the chute were thrown open. Reservation lived up to his reputation. He bucked di^ ectly.^acroBs the track towards the grandatand, and whirling, came back to the mouth of the chute he made a quick turn-'which piled White directly In front of him. The horse bucked right over him, hut with real cowboy luck ^|ilte vfras not touched, though the bone's hoof grazed his head. Parker then made a beautiful,ride.on Ray, and being the oiily rider who ijaras not thrown during the week he was awarded first place. During the afternoon Mike Hastings had again demonstrated "Tils superiorly in the buUdogging competition, and having won for four days straight there was no trouble in deciding the winner.  Other Winners Other winners for the day were: Steer roping for special ten dollar prize-A. M. .Steed. 9 seconds. Indian Bareback Race-1, Donald; 2. Chief Poody; 3, Blackface. Maverick Race-Ray Knight, 'ilaverlok Race, ""evening-Tommy Three Persons. Two Mile Relay Race-1. Tommy Goin, Lethbridge; 2. Parsons. Poison, Mont.; 3, Sam Garrett, Cheyenne. A. R. Heap of Raymond, who won the maverick race twice during Uhe stampede, was declared the winner of the event, and the $150 saddle preseht-ed by D. D. McNabb of the City Harness Shop. One of .the features of the day's program was the attempt of Joe Peters on "Weasel," winner of the calf roping and branding contest last year, to lower the time for the event which had been established by Rollo KInsey on Thursday, For buUdoggers he had. O. Hanson and M. McComber,. while Tom .fllred and Jim Smith handled the irons. Joe didn't have the success he had last year when he turned the trick in 11 minutes and 19 seconds, making 19 misses during the roping of the 25 calves. The calves were logey after the rain, making them hard to catch, so that his tim^ for the event was 13 minutes 11% seconds ad against Kinsey's time of 9 minutes and 3 seconds made on Thursday. However, Joe says he will -be here next year and he thinks It is safe to say another world's record will be established. Altogether the stampede was all that was expected of it. There was a galaxy of splendid riders, plenty of bad horses, and lots of action. And no one was seriously Injured. So good were the horses that Mike Hastings has been commissioned to gather a car load of the best of them for the Pendleton Round Up. That's the repu tatlon the Lethbridge stampede has gained throughout the Western States. During tU^ flvo^Iays of the stam-ped^and fair the street railway system carried just over 43,000 passengers, according to figure.'! prepared by the accounUnt of the department after having worked alniost steadily over the week "end. It was the greatest week in the history of the railway system. For the whole week the number of passengers carried was well over the 50,000 mark, and the total receipts over $2500. Thursday of course was the best day, when 12,118 were carried, but on Saturday, after a slack morning, the total mounted to 10.S91. so that more were carried on Saturday afternoon than on CItl/ena' Day. "A few weeks like this wbuld make our deficit look small," said Commissioner Freeman when he heard the result. Stampede Visitors WELCOME TO LEtHBRlDGE Come in and see us while in the city.

The tent Is 80x110, and has a wall which can be lifted and the seating capacity extended if necessary.
