Cranbrook, Sept. second day of the Cranbrook Agricultural Fair brought out a much larger at- tendance than was on thy grounds yes- terday, and the program of racing was also much better. The matched race between Fresh Breeze and Midget K., three best five heats, was the fastest time race of the day, the last heat being made in two thirty-one. The green race was an exciting one in which there wero four entries. Owners drove and Dr. Hall's Bess won in one, two, three, time." James Bates had a lire punctured In the first heat and this caused a delay for the second. The driver of Topsy took a sup of poison out of a bottle linuuieuf: in mistake for a sup of brandy, and the services of a doctor to-be requisitioned to straighten him out before tho second heat could be run. He came up smiling, however and drove Topsy to second place in the aext two heats. A run-away behind .the grandstand ill the afternoon caused a wild scramble among women and children near the tent in which the baby show was being conducted and in the excite-: ment the runaway horse ran over aj saby buggy in which a baby was aleep- ng. Fortunately, the little buggy was strteig cnoiisl: {o ERVS iho baby from njury, and save for some bruises re- ceived by one or two children, the damage was not great. There were SL' babies and as many mothers in that tent on exhibition be- 'ore two very anxious, and bewildered ndges, Mrs. K. 0. Rogers, of Creston, ind Mrs. Paul llandlcy, of Marysville. E, A. Hill was made the proud- est of the lot by seeing the blue rib- ion tied on her little one, and Mrs V. DJ Laidlriw came a close second. One of the most interesting events if the afternoon was the five mile Jarathon race, in which wero hree entries. A. L-Ilwell, Ramsey. Klwell won the race in twenty -nine ,nd a. half minutes. The day was perfect and the 1D12 air has gone into history with a rec- rd that will inspire the association o still greater exertion than ever be- oro.
