Here JT.TC shown the fniiL and such of itlie vegntablus :ia Imvu not found a placo in main provincial exhibit in bwJaicg 3. A wise notion it was to provide a big, wide fireplace in the building, where a most welcome fire burned away for the visitors. The ladies seemed to appreciate the glow j more than any exhibit on the ground. j The mineral" exhibit is one of quite I exceptional interest, not so much I from its extent or size which are re- jmarliable, but from the fact that all the ore comes from a radius of twen- iy Mies around Crnnbrook. This j hibit was got together in ten days by -Judge Ryau on the suggestion of the members of the'Board of Trade and it is admitted that he did his work and stayed with it on the ground thoroughly. Here are shown ores nev- before exhibited in public, notably :-the nickel ores from Skookumchuck Creek above Wasa and the Wild Horse Creek. The Skookurachuck ores have never been even named and though .submitted to the Provincial pies run to pretty well a ton weight. The entire exhibit is- to be taken as it stands to tlio great Land Fair in Chicago at the expense of the cial Government of H. U. It would be hard for the Hon. Price Ellison, the .Minister of Agriculture, to show u more practical proof of his appre-' ciatipn of the value of the exhibit. It really is in that it represents merely a small corner of a great mineral district. The Cranbrook Sash Door Co. show soni'e doors which attract a world of attention. Mr. Harry Mc- I Kowan, who is in charge, hit upon a 1 plan of bringing out the grains oi the wood by scorching the surface with a torch. The effect is that the softer j parts are charred somewhat, while itie harder stand np sharper. tone of the finished work is. remark- ably beautiful.

It be rc- tiuembert'll that Cranlirook is only two j years old in the matter of iruii mil vegetable culture, but is already nsak- ;ias its name one of iame and re- On Thursday no less than seven thousand visitors passed through the Cranbrook building making for' the four clays considerably over twenty thousand who saw things not to be duplicated in any part of the Con- gress exhibition. Very great credit is due to the enterprising men who put their shoulders to tiie wheel in this relation and made a success oi what. threatened at one time to prove a to some petty jealousies of some of the smaller places local to mi.. They are sorry enough for it now. i i The system of registration adopted by the Cranbrook Board oi Trade of- I fieials in their building is oiie that ought to be more freely made use oi by other organizations. We are told I that the brand of ink used for the purpose is one of a liiehly attractive j color and character. Tlie only diifi- 'culty seems to be to prevent a too ircnerous use heing made of the regis- tration facilities. The officials had 11 draw the line where one man KI- slered under six- names both Chris- tian and heathen. 1C.-GOT FINE MAN1TOBAJR0PHY JVEN CUP FOR FRUU1T EX- OF AL.
