Alfalfa and Flax One sample of alfalfa wouki prob- ably measure over four feet. Flax, too, can be successfully rais- ed as shown by the samples. Thresh- ed boans and peas were also in. evi- dence. City cooks would linger longingly looking at the large collections of vegetables grouped in piles in the middle of the floor. In each collec- tion there was enough for a large family for a week or two. The first prize was won by T. B. Hull, and the second by'G-.'W. Quibbel. There were a flowers and house plants but' the settlements are too new for a large collection. The house- wives thowed .their ability in the good exhibits of bread and cheese. Butter and Eggs Butter and eggs'were also exhibited though the entries were not large. All the butter was in prints and one exhibitor ha-d a printed wrapper. Eaised in Taber One of the attractive exhibits of the fair was the special exhibit of preserves all raised, in Taber iby Mrs. Layton. There were gooseWr es, red currants, white currants, rhubarb and w that she has 27 qtiarts of preserves from. 30- currant bushes. Besides she had used plenty for pies, etc., from day to day. Live "Stock The live stock exhibits and ..the sports were in-.the ball grounds. To help the fair to financial success a small admission fee was charged to the grounds yet a few stayed outside and looked through, the wire fence at the cattle and horses 'tied to the fence inside. There were about forty entries in the. various classes for horses. D.C. Robertson, of Edmonton, in judging frequently took occasion to drop a. few remarks of educational value to the horsemen. In a kindly way he would point out any .defect in an an- imal exhibited and explained why one animal came nearer to the class type than did another. One point he emphasized was that exhibitors "of horses should satisfy themselves that their animals are sound, for at some fairs an'animal is disqualified if in the least unsound. Exciting1. Walking: Hace There was tees'conpet'itibsfcr the best walking the prize was a 25-foot Taber town'lot, value ?50 offered by the Hammer Land Co. Four teams hitched to -heavy wagons entered. They were lined up at one end of the field, the brakes bfeing re- eased. On the word "go" they started for the other end, where they turned and came back-to the starting- Joint. The rattle of the four wagons excited one broncho which wanted to trot and gallop- but the owner was not allowed to set his brake. The vinning team struck a steady stride and guite unconcerned came in an asy winner amid the cheers of the rowd. As their driver reached the aome stretch he looked over his shoul !er at the. prancing bronchos, and the traq-glers behind, and while he gent- y waved his whip the team ctucken- d their walk till they reached the cratch and the driver won Ms Taber own lot. As there was no second >rize the broncho buster and number our turned aside -discouraged. But number three pluckUy plodded along nd won the honor of second place. Cattle and Swine W. R. Winslow, of Lacomfce, judged the cattle and swine. About twenty- cattle were entered. The dairy attle were very fair' and the beef attle were -good. The few swine on chibition were of fair quality. The busy threshing season would ccount for the absence of many orses. As yet most farmers devote 11 attention to grain growinb. This ill no doubt be changed in a year r two. There is money in raising grain crops but year in and year out mixed farming may be safer. Live stock would help up some cf tho big straw piles which, now are useless The success found with, alfalfa anrl tame grasses shows tha.t it will be possible to large herds on small- er area than heretofore. Such exhib-1 its of roots show another source of fat-producing food for stock. People will want the meat from the butchers SJ-V IM will If. A AIJ. .-.Hi viCiiiauvi oeei cat- tle from the farmers of Alberta. Poultry E. N. Barker, of Calgary, judged the poultry. The entries were not numerous but were good. Among the varieties shown were" Buff Orphing- tons, Brown and White Leghorns, Barred Rocks and only one pair of ducks. Lady Fakir Works the Children One thing worthy of cote was the few side show fakirs present. One lady had a speculative game whereby the innocent young children, paid ten cents.' for the privilege of drawing eight "numbered cards. The numbers were then quickly added up and the child got a prize corresponding to the number of the total... On the ,n unit er-j ed squares were prizes; .off various i kinds of doubtful value. Alarm' clock razors, stick pins and of brass were .the prizes. If the number- od cards were large it would im- 1 possible to get a -small total -and win prize of any value. It was tho only black spot on the whole fair. NO Taber mother would conduct such a business still this ady had a swarm of little boys and girls from eight to twelve years of age around the gambling table muchj of tho time.' The adults preferred the more exciting sport of throwing baae- mlls at dolls, but here too a lady vas helping to run the show. Music by the Band The band discoursed sweet music from a sheltered corner of the grand stand during the afternoon. A game of baseball was played -between the Taber team and one from McPhee's! show company whose tent was pitch- j ed on another street. j Football Match j An exciting football match was j played between the "old timers" and; ITS PURITY ITS FLAVOR ITS FRAGRANCE ITS RELIABILITY Are retpontible for ITS ENORMOUS SALE of OOP OOP packets SALADA" Sealed lead packets only 40c., 50c. and 60c. per pound At all growers.
