Keenly balanced are its displays of grains, grasses vegetables, while the display of houc hold products is comprehensive. T Lacombe Board of Trade decided car in tho spring to enter the distri competition and their exhibit is keeping with the energy displayed. Castor, east of "Lacomlje, is t 'OOO-pound 'baby of Alberta.

START TODAY Ellison Milling and Elevator Co. rMII.I.S AT LETHBRIDGE, RAYMOND AND MAGRATH the Olds district has an able chain plan, if. after visiting their exhibit ii needs to be championed. About a year ago tho Boards o Trade of several of the growing town cf Central .Alberta formed a eoimner organization for the itdvertisin of their districts, calling it the Cen iral Alberta Development Leagut1 Their exhibit is i" charge of the! able secretary, and is probably the most comprehensive of any undertak en outside those of the states am provinces. It is indicative of tho country in which it was produced fot and grasses, vegetables and even fruits all-have their place, and in point of quality the whole exhibit classes with anything on the grounds. Coming a little nearer Lethhridgo, nearer to the home of fhis ysar's Congress, tho different communities have done themselves proud in the ?copr and artistic effects of ilicir ex- hibits. Southern Albsrta hats been j busy threshing for the past six week; but that dill not deter DIG Boards of Trade from suiting busy in a manner which shews the spirit that made the Congress hero this year possible. The Spirit of the Congress An instance of this unquenchable spirit is socn in tho case Champion. Believing that rhey must not allow tbc-ir district to belie its name, E. Paiisou. Gco. A. Miller, M. Clever, the founder of 01-evorville, now Cham- pion, P. Watson and A. Carmieh- ael, started out en the afternoon of October 17th to.gather an exhibit for tho Congress. And they are showing grains ihresbe-d on Saturday after- noon Their spirit is what has made- possible the million bushel crop is harvested in. tho Cham- pier district this Grasses and vcijetahie.s also I1.old an important, part, iu llioi" display which is in every way ;i enrdij to that thriving com- muniiy. From up the same way comes the Carmani'.ny exhibit. CavKiaiigay lays claim to btiixm ono of the finest dry- running districts in the province, ai their displays have come to bo note Prominent In their booth are the ty large cups which the- district has wo at the last two exhibitions of tl Lethbridgc Agricultural Hoard fo sweepstakes In dry-farming dlstrlc exhibits. Their exhibit is especial wide In scope, and UK.VC is no doul that its appearance hero will al greatly in advertising the district. .Taber is here with an extensive e: Mbit in diarso of Mr. Sundal. Clain Ing to ibo a centre of wheat and coa it is rnoet that thv hitter should b shown even though not a dry-farm' product, so an enormous piece of co; has been placed in the booth as guessing ecu test feature. Tho coi js an enormous lump, but the cxhib of agricultural products might be e: pressed in like terms. Taber ha done nobly by the Congress, and the are opportunity to let th world know what they can do i growing grains, grasses and tables. Bow Island, claiming for 1012 th largest crop in the history of the dis Irict. has also a large display of th products of the soil in that comrnui ity, and of course grain is in the lead A. F. AVerts, a former L-eth-lmdge citi 2en, is in charge, and he does not hi tend that any visitor shall leave th grounds without having been tiior oughly convinced that, although ther may be spots in Western Canad; Which are just as good, there are noni better, for he has the goods to prov: it. A miniature gas well drilling ma chine, sitting in the midst of the pro ducts of the farms, is quite significan of the other great resources of BOM Grassy Lake is a purely agricultnra community, ami one can believe it b> looking at their display. It is no large, but it is representative what can bs time in the farming line in the .district. Here again grain to the fore, and their samples of she and sheaf grains is easily the 'be ever brought from tliat district. The South Has Done Nobly No part of Alberta has stood more nobly by Lcth'bridgs in its endcavoi tn bring the Congress home to the people of this province than the south of the city. Time after time Cardstoi Magrath and Raymond have given of their best In this movement, and when last year Arthur Perrcy, premier farm- er of the Cardston district, took Cardston district exhibit to Colorado Springs, and swept the board in all prizes in its class, besides winning innumerable Individual premimuins on liis own behalf, tlie. south came into prominence. Cgrdston Is in Front Again This year they arc here to duplicate. Carflston's exhibit, is in charge of E. X. Barker, although be has been ably Jacked by the Board of Trade, and also 'by Mr. Per rev, who is showing Individual class. For variety of exhibits, tho Cardston display lias ;ever been 'beaten. Not the pro- uncial riiui state exhibits themselves show ;i better variety cf dry- armed products than those in charge if the Cardston old-timer. Almost ivory conceivable variety of grain, or grass which can be grown n Alberta is to be found there, am he winner of the district exhibit pre nium will have to boat Cardston to erne out "it is certainly the est -exhibit which has ever come oui FUTURE SAILINGS Montrcal-Quebcc-Llverpooi Lakt; Manitoba .....Sat.

General A9tnt 210 Portr.ge Avc, Man. of tlie Cardston said Mr, Barker, and in making that statement he has said somutliliig significant to dry farmers-wlio know the reputation of the Cardston farmers so far as the Dry-Farming Congress is concerned. Mag-rath exhibit, in charge of G, W. Heathernhaw, is another winner, whe- ther or not 1t wins the premier prize. That the whole of Southern Alberta is given over to grain growing is dis- proved by a glance at their exhibit, where vegetables and fruits have a large place. The display is In every way artistic, and reflects credit on the energy of those who pride them- selves on the Garden City of t'i'3 south. Not only the product of the farms is there, but the ladies of the district have seized the opportunity to show what they can do in the way of home products, and that display too is ex- cellent. A Panoramic Exhibit Raymond does not believe in allow- ing the visitors to get away without a clear conception of the many-sided ad- vantages of their district. To this end they have erected a revolving exhibit divided into six parts. In these ccm-j partments will be found such products as flour, home baking, grains and! grasses, sugar and sugar beets, vege tables and confections. The flou mills and the sugar factory are to th fore, and the panoramic view leaves distinctly good impression of th Sugar Town. Win. Harris is In charg cf the exhibit, and with him are large corps of willing workers wh believe In Raymond. Macleod district is again to th fere. Macleod has attended the Drj Farming Congress before, and are no new to the job. In Spokane two years ago they took a score of prizes At Lethbridge this year they are hop ing their district will do 'even bettei Macleod district is known because o Lhe signal honors which have been achieved in the farming world by AV I. Glass, wheat grower. The Macleoi exhibit is distinctly good, and tfill be ivcll up with the leaders in the dis Irict exhibit competition. Mixed farm ng is emphasized, that being one o he mottoes of the Board of Trade which is responsible for the display Pincher Has Won Before Jf Pincher Creek comes last here t is by no means least. Occupying inarter of one whole building, it easily tho most comprehensive exhibit he Pincher Creek Board of Trade has ever gathered together. That inimlt- .ble booster, F. W. Forster is In barge. He has spent days and days his summer gathering an exhibit to- gether which he -believes; will be re- res sat stive of the best in the dis- rict. If better is to 'he found it must ie by means of a vlsii to the Pincher 'reek country. They have entered in oine thirty individual classes besides ringing their district exhibit, so it s plain they have- stood toy the Con- fess. Grains, both sheaf and thresh- (I, arc conspicuous in [he display, 'ineher Cree.lv won -bronze medals in at the World's Fair at Chicago, hey hope to repeat at this Congress, orage crops peculiar to Southern Al- erta are also in evidence. Pincher reek Is recognized as the leading ay centre of the south. To attempt, to describe every exhibit in detail EO that justice might be. done to (he advantages of the districts, be impossible. Suffice to say that Alberta need not be ashamed of Uie thriving agricultural communities which have- made this province known the world over as one of the best on ear tli. British Columbia's Fine Exhibit There is, .perhaps, no handsomer ex- hibit at the grounds than that of the British Columbia government. It is a biiperb arrangement of fruits and soil prcducts, and has only one drawback. It is not, in the main building, where it 'would have been one of the stellar! attractions. It is in the stock build-! "IV and, of course, has i.he ad-! ags- of being all by itself. Tho building has been fixed up in great style, and the exhibit is well designed 10 show the wealth of the Pacific pro- vince so far as agricultural and fruit wealth is conesrued. Of course, there is immense mineral wenlth.-Jiut that is nr-i shown, but th richness in timber] shewn in same huge blocks of tim- ber. Tho display of preserved and canned fruits will make housekeepers' mouths water. Hon. Price Ellison is here, also his capable- deputy, Mr. W. E. Rwt, and with thorn is Mr: Brando th, exhibition commissioner. They are hero to tell all about, it. and I if any one gees aw.iy without know- ing all about. B.
