Last, year ii bjg sionn blew up and blew down' UIB nmin exhibi- tion tent. This year the weather was cold, ami rain threatened ail day, In fuel, a few showers helped 'iu make exhibition seeing anything bui a pleas- ure to cheer for. It was, a disappointing crowd, which gathered at. the grounds Garden Products In tho imiln show, however, tho big feature was the fine display of roots iind vegetables. The lateness at the fair is held certainly iier- mits ot the full maturity of the gard- en stuff, and there were turnips, car- rots, cabbage and other stuff which well i-eveated the character of Ihtj soil around Carnuiugay. and a whole wag- on load of it. was kept for the Pry- Farming Congress exhibit. Great interest was shown in the judging of tho horses, and the deci- sions of .Mr. Upper generally approv- ed. The proverbial loyalty ot Car- majlgay people to home men was ab- undantly in evidence at the pleasure shown, when local men beat out ex- Ijibitors from it distance. This was iCTlIcularly noticeable .when McKay not more than six hundred being jire' sent, all told. Th-e exhibition wad a good one, and worthy of much better patronage. Next year an effort'will bo made to hold the fair in August before the farmers get busy at the harvest. In addition to the unfavor- able weather the farmers are busy s, rothers wonutrom colhi n tot- son, of Claresholm, with a heavy team of Clydes. Mr. Tillolson had won the first honors at Lethbridge, Macleod, Granum, Nanlon, Claresholm and'oth- er points, ami the fact that he was beaten out by a Carmangny team was a source of more than ordinary pleasure.

The outstanding-feature of the Car- j mangay show' this year was the j bition of 'There were some good cattle, hut the attraction was the horses, and Judge Upper had to do some very careful '-'inspecting at times before handing, out the ribbons.

The ladies were to the front with a llJce display of fancy wnrh and the exhibit of honi-e-madu cooking, can- ned fruits, etc.. was very pleasing. Taken as a whole, tbe fair was very pleasing: so far as the exhibits wore concerned, and tbe only disappoint- ment, was the aUeirdajlce and tlie mis- erable weather; The opinion gener- ally expressed by the directors was that an earlier dJte would be selected next year.
