The Lethbridge Daily Herald V. se, Alberta. Friday, .September Number 231) GARDEN AND FIELD Cranbrook's Exhibition Opened Yesterday With a Fine was a Splendid Program and the Fair's Success is Assured (Special to The Heratd.) Sept. first day of UKJ Cranbrool; Fait Fair brought out an unusual crowd of people, who treated to it good display of all kinds of farm and garden produce, UK us a.most surprising display of homo grown fruits. The showing of live stock was ra- tlier disappointing, but was 'made up for by u fine display of poultry. Tho ladfos were to the fore with a large showing or all kinds of ncedte- cooking, and canned and pre- served, fruits. There were KOmo very noticeable displays of photographic work; and -the (lien-lay of ler color work had some fine samples of arl. The drawing ami pemnauHhiu of school Children allowed excel- lent work, some six of the penman- chip prizes were carried off by the "pupils from the Fort. Stcelc school. Several collective displays of farm jmd garden products were to be seen, among these bx'liig a display from the Si. Eugcno Mission, and one from the "YVyclirf farms, and displays of grass- es, vegetables aud sheaf grains. These displays, as well as many others, are to bo kept 'by the Cran- brook association for exhibition at the Lethbridge Dry-Farming Congress, aud they will show the prairie farm- ers just 'what can be done on the west aide of the Rockies in die way of farming. A notable feature of the fair today was the presence a squad cf Boy Scouts iu uniform. These boys pre- sented a natty appearance, and they were a most useful 'part of thy per- formance. They were on guard at dif- ferent, places, and served as messen- ger boys 1'or the officials, thus ren- dering a most useful service. A.Novel Exhibition Before leaving the turnips, and po- tato show, it is worth while to note a novel exhibit by Gus Theis and G. Carr. of Perry Creek. Besides some samples of gold-bearing quartz, -whic! attracted much attention, these two old-timo prospectors had a lot of po- tatoes grovfti on the riianntain side at an elevation of 6750 which were certainly a wonder in. their line. Potatoes grown so near the sky should command the highest, prices. Thos. Gill, the veteran 'bee-keeper, and 11. Sainabury and Wm. Hamilton had fine displays of bees and honey. The Sports Programme The day's programme of horse rac- ing was not long, but proved most exciting; at times.
