The com- mittee in charge consisting of A. M. Grace, James Alrd and L. F. BonneLl with the secretary, E. Lu- chia, have been working overtime lo get everything in readiness for tht best matinee ever staged here, and judging by the interest shown by lovers of good horseflesh they they have done their part well.

The card calls for a free-for-all event, purse 2.30 pace or 2-2-i trot, puree and a green trot, mile hcaU, 2 In 3, puric 5150 En the harness events. A mile dash, purse and n local pony race, heals, purse J75, will try out the runners. Two foot 1 races, 100 yards dash free-for-all, and 100 yards dash for boys under 16 will lend iome variety to the afternoon's entertainment. With a baseball game at Eckstorm Park in the evening between the locals and the Taber Crescents there will be a day's program thai is going to attract thousands from the cour.'ry round, and a big time will be had providing Jupiter Pluvlui is willing. Entries for the races must be in by May at 6 o'clock.
