It is essential that Taber. as the largest town in Alberta and centre of a great farming area, should occupy the leading place in the matter of an exhibit, and with the co-operation of every business man and farmer and with the financial help the town must give, this can be accomplished. Now is the time thai something must be doing, so Mr Farmer if you would uphold the prestige of your district, get busy right now. "fust EVa Joke j. j.
