The minister Mililia will give free ammunition to so as to assist in preventing an accumulation of stores. When. Webster edited his dictionary he fell down badly on liig supply of .superlatives. One lady writer from Winnipeg formally entered thai cluirge against him yesterday, at any cveni. She alleged that lie had not been informed of such events as the Dry-Fanning Congress at Leibbrldgc. I-Iad lie, she believed that she might have been able to do justice to the exhibits nou- shown at, the grounds, which go to make up one of the most. complete exhibits of dry-funned pro- ducts which it would be possible to gather- together in any country on 'which the sun shines. The International Dry-Farming Con- gre'ss is a world's Fair'except in the amount of financial support it re- reives, tind in Iho length of time the exposition is before the public. Would it'be :i surprise to know that the ex- hibits now being shown cost at least to gather together, without taking account of the time and energy expended by enthusiastic men and women, from which they get nothing but a certain feeling of pride in a pub- lic service well performed. There; are some exhiibiU in the! Congress exposition. From the chain-j pion turnip of the local tall fair, to I Alberta Loan Investment Company, Limited Office 416 5th Street S. Phone 1214 the provincial or state exhibit which has taken two or three men, with abundance of funds at their command, a whole year to gather together, and then on to the acme of perfection, llio display of is best of the two greatest agricultural countries of the world, exhibiting side by side in Irieiidly rivalry -their federal displays these are displayed 'with such profusion, and with such artistic taste in their arrangement, that Worst, past president of the Congress, spoke truly when he said, "It seems too bad that they are arranged only for n -week: they should be a permanent, ex- hibit, some place where the nations of the world might come and see." World's fairs have their state, pro- vincial and national displays of the products of the countries represented. 13uL they are not confined rt) dry- farmed products only, and for this reason it seems hardly fair to com- pare the Dry-Farming Congress expo- sition to a World's fair. However, that is what some of the widely trav-. elled experts are doing, and they mean; it when they say that there never was a better collection of dry-farmed products assembled in tlie history of the world, than that now attracting such wide attention at Lethbridge. Alberta Again to the Fore To picture the evolution of Alberta from the wild and 'woolly stretch of raw prairie, as so many people un- acquainted with facts seem to ccive it, to the land of richest 'bless- ing as they believe when they do see it, is a task many a man would give up in despair. Not so E. L, Richard- sou, who for the past three years has been iu charge of the Alberta gov- ernment exhibit at expositions of the Dry-Farming Congress and at other important exhibitions outside the boundaries of the province. Mr. Rich- ardson has built up a reputation for the province and himself at tlio same time through the general excellence of his exhibits wherever shown, and the provincial department of agricul- ture considers itself fortunate that it has such a man to whom it may dele- gate the task of making known to the world (ho resources of the soil of Sunny Alberta. True, he has always received the hearty support, of the provincial authorities in preparing the exhibits, but the fact that for the past two years lie has carried off for Al- berta the sweepstakes for the best exhibit at (he Dry-Farming Exposi- tions seems to be. enough proof that their trust.has not been misplaced. The Alberta exhibit at the fair grounds needs no introduction to the people of Alberta. Picturing in strik- ing reality the passing of the co'wboy of romance in two large oil paintings, "Another Trail Cut Off" and "Keep- ing His Hand the exhibit is built up so artistically that visitors cannot help but say. "Well, there is certainly one of the 'best exhibits in the exposi- tion." It would be impossible to tell in de- tail all the agricultural resources of the' province portrayed so faithfully there. It is enough to say that the champion wheat has its place along with the ohampion vegetables, with1 some champion grasses thrown in for good measure. A little fruit is added to show what Alberta can do in a pinch. A little coal is shown to con- vince the public that there is wealth below the if it were DOB. sihle a little of Sunny Al's store of sunshine would havei 'been added to complete the picture. It is to say that it is the best exhibit ever gathered by the pro- vince both in point of Quality and di- versity of, products, and it seems a pity that it could not ibe established at the gateway of the 'world, where all nations might see, and realize the possibilities of the. great west of which Alberta is a part.
