The for- the best -bushel of-wheat-opfen-to the world was announced by Chairman Fair- field; of the jury of awards, last night. Henry Holmes, of Raymond, is the winner, so that the big Rume- ly oil pull- engine, the biggest prize ever given in any open com- petition of such a nature, will re- main in Southern Alberta. Once more, also, Marquis wheat won the big prize, and added an- other-laurel to its already famous It the first attempt of Mr. Holmes, to grow Marquis, and will establish ;t as the coming grain in Southern Alberta. "1 never in all my life saw such a collection of winning wheat as the 200 or more exhibits displayed in the sweepstakes said Mr. Harshman, of the Centennial Mill Co., of Spokane, one of the judges.. "We took the four classes cf hard wheat entered, el- iminated all but the firsts in each, and then we had to sweat blood before we could decide on the champion bushel. There was ex- cellent wheat from all over the continent on exhibition, and most cf it was almost perfect milling wheat." Geo. C. .Armstrong, of the sup- ply department of the Ogilvie Milling Co., Winnipeg, and Mr. McKillican, superintendent of the Dominion Seed branch, were the other two judges, worked with Mr. Harshman in deciding the winner, and they concurred in saying that a better collection of commercjal wheat was never seen- at any exposition. Seager Wheel- er and other prominent wheat growers had are per- fectly satisfied with the result. "The wheat was judged accord- Ing to the rules laid down by the Congress. Commercial value was the basis of judging, so We did not judge on points, as is often the case in such expositions. The winning sample was as nearly per- fect as wheat could be, taking in- to consideration commercial qual- ity, weight and'color. The weight was sixty-five and one-quarter pounds per bushel." This state- ment, from Mr. Harsnmanr one of the best known judges of wheat in the Western States carries a great deal of weight. The winning bushel is being put in a glass case today, and will be exhibited in a prominent place throughout the remainder of the Exposition. No second or third prizes were given out by the judges, this be- ing a sweepstakes event. Coming to Lethbridye yester- day on an urgent call from some of his friends ,and believing him- self to he in some dire trouble, Henry Holmes of Raymond was apprised of the fact that he was the owt.'er of a brand new Rumely, 30 horsf; power, oil pull tractor en- gine, apprised also of the fact th'at he was ihe new champion wheat grower of world, and incident- ally the most famous man in South- ern Alberta vor the time being.
