LETHBRIDGE THE CONGRESS CITY (From the Home Journal Ltepartineni of the Farmers' The exigencies of the time table compelled us to reach Lethbrldge a! the somewhat unconventional hour oj 4 a.m., an hour which we would uevei hav-e chosen voluntarily. Fraukly, wt did not look forward with any pleas- ure to the hour when we would be forced to forsake our -berths aud veil ture out into the darkness of a city. How little we knew our Leth- bi-'idge! Even iu "Sunny Alberta" th is not always on duly, but w> did not miss it as we drovx; to our hotel through 'b'rilliatiily lighted streets thai would bn a credit to any great city. Considering that a good many trains arrive and depart dur- ing, the, night watches, the city fath- ers ,liave displayed great wisdom in providing such a gay and cheery wel- come and such a friendly farewell as lights supply.- First-impressions are very important and to the travel- ing public the first gliarpKe of Leth- bridg-e conveys the idea that the city is v-ery wide-awake indeed.

I know there are many people who have a, vague but deep-rooted idea that farm women never have any leisure. Xonsense! Of course they have. It. is true that many of them work too hard and we harp a good deal on tire adverse conditions be- raii.st1 those art the- ones -want lo improve, but f think we should look at the oilier side of the picture also. The truth i.s that, on the whole, the I'itrm women have as or more. Ii-Msuri; than city women. Many a brave woman on a lonely homestead too much leisure; she has lime to tio books; time to sew nothing to sew with; time to ''s j no -neighbors. Her greatest J j danger Ik's in ihe adaptability- of hu- nian nature, in time she becomes in- ured to her lonely life and loses her social instincts to fi certain extent. And as a moans of keeping alive those intfreHis and furnishing an outlet for thfi nifMitnl and social activities of HQLBROOKS WORCESTERSHIRE SAUCE II ter than a women's institute. Iu talking1 with the women in charge of the institute work, some of whom had themselves done pioneer duty m this country, 'we found them all of one mind as to the potency of the oldest weapon of defence against discontent and idleness. And the exhibits prove that the dainty instrument hag uot lost its charm for most women. An Original Idea The Indies of the Magrath Institute, which is a very youthful organization, had a most original and attractive They: transformed theii booth into a charming two-roomed cottage of most picturesque appear- ance. The homely potato and carrol did duty as cobble stones on roof and fireplace, the vegetables being cut. half to get one Mat surface and then varnished. The tints of brown and red werp moat artistic and the fire- place, with its electric bulb concealed n masses of red tissue paper, lent most "homey" air to the little cottage .lardinieres and vases were fashioned of pumpkins, mangels, carrots, etc. (also varnished) and filled with flow- ers leaven they added the finish- ing Touch to the decorations. The general color scheme was white and yellow. By the way, the vegetable jardinieres may offer a suggestion to others 'who are in search of original decorative There was a beau- tiful display of needlework, some of the colored pieces being simply ex- riuisiLe while the hardanger embroid- ery was exceptionally tint.'. The ex- hibit of sewing Included a great many the home-made rugs and carpets elicited a yroat. deal of admira Uon. Iu the gunlle art of cookery heso ladies uphold the reputation of Im west, and from tlic hridescak-e to he sucking pig everything .he best. We were particularly interested to note in all the Alberta exhibits (hat icarly all the preserved fruits and vegetables were marked home grown. This display was in charge of Mcs- imcs Wyniau, Rasmusseii and Tay- or, and Misses Uasmusscn, Hall and broidery and dm wings, including ex- amples of many varieties of stHchery and some beautiful pieces of Irish crochet aud other laces. The da hit; baby dresses ornamented with tatting and embroidery aad all baud made were especially admired. In the cen Ire of the booth was a table centm by a. wedding cake that would have been a credit to any confectioner, am set fortli with home-made wine, cakes and candies was a most tempting, feast. The display of cook cry included bread, buns, cakes, and a very line assortment of preserves, the canned vegetables were most ap- petizing, and We vvere "'full of ques- tions" on the subject. We learned (hat the fresh-looking jars of peas and beans were preserved in brine, and that they supply fresh vegetables dur- ing the winter for the tables of those who have been far-sighted enough to provide 'in the day of abundance for the lean months. Preserved duck and prairie chicken was also shown. The floor of the booth was spread with several mats which greatly excited our curiosity until we learned "how it was done." They were made of burlap, ravelled and dyed in most artistic shades. "Th-e best, crop" of Cardston 'was proudly displayed in the -place of honor, a group of babies, thR dearest, chubbiest, babies imagin- able. 1 said the babies had the place of lionor-bur really there was another exhibit that shared that niche. On one wall hung a cross-stitch riuilt of which we heard the story. Long be- fore any regular institute was organ- ized the'women felt the need of some social bond and they formed it sewing ;irrte.

Their emblem the daisy, and their exhibit was quite out of the ordinary, being arranged in a "huge revolving wheel, divided in- to sections, each of which was devoted to some- Raymond product. Mrs. G. Kirkham, Mrs. Snow and Mrs. Allen 'were in charge ot" the women's in- stitute exhibit. One Woman's Work -Mrs. Jl. Ririe, of -Magrath. entered an "artistic display by a farm wo- man." Mrs. Ririe is a farm woman with four children but she finds time and inclination''for much besides her duties in the home.

The color scheme was white and pale green, and the booth was filled with evidences of 'Mrs. Ririe's mastery of the brush, the needle, and above all, the culin- ary arts and sciences.
