The home-made products were also very much in evidence, and tile good housewives oi Carmangay showed that they rank second to none in this department. The grain exhibits were also good, although not large as might be expected on ac- count of tilt- fact that very little hrcshing has yet been done in the iistrict. In live slock, too, the Carmangay fair deserves special mention.

The Herald reproduces the this expert gave the Albertan. It-applies equally well to the people if Lethbridge, prices in the two cities being practically the same. The facts mil figures given speak for themselves. The effect of the reciprocity pact .upon the'consumer Is one which has been ost sight of to a certain -extent in this discussion. Every person has been 50 muchj-mterested in the effect upon the producer, that he has overlooked in equally impoflatit feature of this pact. The farmer will get a better irlce for.his wheat, oats, and cattle, the land owner will get a better price or his land, and.when the farmer is prosperous, every person Is prosperous But the consumer will very greatly benefit by the reciprocity pact The vestcrn farmer will gain a million dollars a year by1 cheaper agricultural I mplements, according to the statement of an implement man who knows But the man m the city will get cheaper living. He should have chenpe egetables, cheaper fruit, cheaper canned goods ,nnd cheaper flour The dutle pon vegetables and fruits have.been removed. The duty on flour has bee omewlmt reduced, though not so very much. Prices in western cities at th resent time -are excessive. They should be reduced and they will be re uced under reciprocity. The Albertan has made an effort to make a fair comparison of prices pa cross the. line and-in Calgary for certain articles of food. The list is no shows a vast margin against ,us.

Speaking of the ballot-box slander for which Gries- the Conservative candidate, has been served with a ten, tholsnnd dol- lar writ by Returning Officer May, the Minister of the Interior produced an order given to Ross Bros., local dealers, from H.
