Meech is at present busy working on mans tor i'uese buiiuiiiss, aliii it is understood that the same style of architecture will be followed i as that on the main hail, which .has many complimentary remarks from visitors 'from every part of the coun- try.

Mr. .McNlcol has already closed contracts for the vauile vllle features, .which will be blgfier and twttor than ever before. Last year the attractions of this' nature were rather a .disappointment to the fair management. This year the at- tractions are all guaranteed to be of a high class order. There is a rumor lo the effect that the management .is at present negotiating for nn attrac- tion, which. If landed. be tlie means of bringing hundreds of people to the city to witness that alone. Tlie new racing circuit Is also bound to prove a great drawing card, and already the city lias received much desirable publicity from the fact lhat Lethbridge occupies a place on the calendar of the Western Can- ada Racing Circuit. There will be con- tinuous racing from June 15 to August on this circuit, and Lethbridge is assured of the best programme of rac- es ever pulled off here. Due feitture of the races will be that there will be an official starter with the circuit who lias had wide experience on the Am- erican side, and the races will be pull- ed a clean and classy manner, which -will make them worth watch- g. The -fairs also are arranged to suit the racing dates, so that the big exhib- itors of cattle and horses, will be able to follow the -western fairs witli less Expense than usual, thus ensuring the-.very best kind of exhibits in the live stock classes, which it would be possible to get together in the West. The premium list is also coming in for more than a little attention from the fair management, and Secretary 'McKicol announced this morning that already several valuable premium cups havs been .offered for various'classes. The prize list will be large, and there will be moraspecial ev eiv so esiicsiticn or the big fair will be the most at- tractive presented in Southern Alberta. No Pvpeuse will be and there is no-doubt that the Leth- bridge fair this year will he just a lit- tle better than ever, before. C.P.R. WILL SELL THE CITY TWO CARS OF TIES Contractors Full Down Badly in Gelling; Stuff llere on Time Stlpt. Reid of the street railway sys- tem appeared before the city council yesterday afternoon complaining- about the delay in the arrival or the ties being'supplied by.Krhgsley Bros, from Washington. He blamed both the contractors tln-r' p- for delay. When leaving ihe factory near- ly two weeks ago. the sixth car was just being shipped out of the yard. So far only four cars have arrived. In order not to delay the work, Mr. Reid asked that he be allowed to pur- chase two cars. of ties from the C. P. R. Suut. Cameron'of Medicine Hal. has intimated that he will allow the ,city to buy two cars from the company's stock and Superintendent Reid thought they .coiild be'used to advantage in. .the Hendej-son Park division of -the road. The council agreed to the purchase, and the ties will be supplied it once, so lhaj there should he no further1 delay in the work of laying the track. Good work is being done by the track laying department. The track on Sixth Avenue is now .ballasted, while on Fifih Street Soiith the Bit- Co. this morning started work laying the. cement ballast and .sub- base before paving on that s'treet. Other city work is.alsb being push- ed.

WORK STARTED ON THE NEW BLOCK Work was commenced this morning by Contractor W. r. Hayne, on the al- terations to the office formerly occu- pied by the Pioneer Lumber Co., on Fifth street. This property, compris- ng fifty feet, was bought from the lumber company some time ago by Messrs. D. .1. Whitney, K. V. Gibbon, and Dr. iMc.Vall.v, and is now to be con- verted into a business block. A brick front will be tuo stores furnished, making a rain- able addition to the business houses on The cost of the al- terations will be in. the neighbor- hood of One of the stores will be used as an office, and in the other a restaurant will be started.

PREMIUMS POUR IN FOR THE CONGRESS Offers-of special, premiums su1" roll in to the headquarters of the Dry- Farming Congress. If the offers con- tinue to come alorig at the present rate, there is little doubt that the special premium for the exposi- tion in connection with the Congress will reach the mark be.'ore the doors of the Congress open on October 21' next. TMs morning the Gem State Rural and Live Stock Journal, published ai Caldwell, Idaho, wrote the exposition committee" of the Congress that they would donate a large silver cup -for the best display of ninety-day corn ex- hibited at the exposition. The cup will have to be won'Uo years in suc- cession in order to become the prop- srty of the n-iimer. This publication is making a big fight to get the Con- jress for Boise, Idaho, next year, and sre therefore trying to stir up as much interest as possible in their own State. Another premium for corn is also being donated by the Farmers' Advo- of Winnipeg, Man. Two medals, a gold and a silver, are being award- ed .'or the best sheaf ot fodder corn grown in or Alberta. Some of the hoards of iraJe in Southern Alberta also intimated their Intenlion of donating special premiums, although no definite an- nouncements have been made so fur. CARL R.
