Cardston annual fall fair opened yesterday morning, and as usual ilie- exhibition is of an exceedingly high standard. The weather was fine, in gpite of the bad rains of the previous day and night. The attendance was not as large as 011-3 would expect of a town the dimensions of Cards ton and tri- butary territory, hut those who did attend manifested keen interest in the judging. All of the classes were well filled up, and the secretary of the fair, Joseph Y, Card, places the total of exhibits at one thous- and. This'compares favorably with the number of previous fairs. The horse display, like that of Ray- mond and Mag-rath, was exceedingly strong, and the government judge, R. J. Upper of Calgary, pronounced them the best he hod seen in the province taken on a whole, and could not be beaten outside of the older provinces. All of the! horses were judged yes terday with the exception of the Per cheron class, which was delayed so as to allo'w H. Bradshaw to bring his string in from Magrath. There are, however, some fine Percherons on tlie grounds already, hicludhi; magnificent stallion owned by Jameb Hansen, Hansen's Clydcs Sweep Mr. "Hansen's. splendid string; of CJytles swept everything in that ela He. has some of the 'best Clyde horses hi the west, according to Judge Up- per, who was delighted with them. .Mr. Hansen's Hackney stallion carried the first ribbon also, and his brood mare, winner at the Calgary and Reglua shows, -was awarded tiie' first ribbon without any hesitation what- ever. Mr. Hansen is indeed worthy of commendation on his efforts to briug in good animals. In tbe Shire J. B. Ririe, of Magrath, again took mosl of the pre- miums.

The cattle exhi Big Entry of Poultry t The poultry department, was ihe largest at the exhibition, und the judge, William Pollard, had no easy task. Very few .of the birds were judged lust night, but it Is expected that, by noon today it will be all ac- complished. All of the standard strains oi poultry aro entered, and the competition IB uncommonly strong. The vegetable booth, displayed in a temporary building constructed for the purpose, is a revelation, and con- tains almost everything the soil pro-j ducea. Parley Carter again shows his prize taking vegetables and thej took a good share of the premiums although the Cardston people mani- fested their ability 10 raise good, getables, tailing several of tho lead- ing prizes away from the Garden City gardener. The grains and grass- es were fine, alfalfa grown from taking first money in that class. Crim son clover, two magnificent samples of which were was .shown, for the first-time in Western Canada at th-e, Cardston fair. They thus made a record. The wheat is excellent and shows not the least signs of froat, smut or any other damaging quali- ties. E, N. Barker, 'who was one of the judges in. the vegetable department, and ''who is collecting the Cardston exhibit for the International Dry Farming Congress, secured one of the of the'Crimson clover for exhibition purposes, ilr. Barker was surprised to see the sample as he was of the opinion that it would not thrive in this northern climate. From' the vegetables and 'field roots one passes on to the more artistic portion of the fair, that oC the ladies' department. Here the ladies hold sway, and for a few happy moments one forgets the Farm and its" pro- ducts. That the women of. Cardston and surrounding district are by nature artistic was amply demonstrated, con- crete evidence in the form of cooking, fancy work and painting being shown substantiation of this claim. The display in this department, although terribly crowded and not so taste- fully arranged as it might have been, was on actual points just the least hit better than at any other fair along the Hue. This is one for the ladies of Cardston, but. it is the honest opin- ion of the Herald representative.

The Herald was led to believe, how- ever, by the officials that next year things 'will be altogether different. They purpose building a mammoth grandstand, a race course, and a fine: new park. The M.

Kaymond, Cardston and -Magralh, will go on record as ihree of the very best in the west. On actual points they excel many fairs in the larger centres.
