with the Cranbrook Pall Pair are
more than satisfied with tho results
obtained. The weather, which for
the last few days has been inclined
to be a little boisterous, settled
down towards Thursday morning
and an afternoon resembling an
autumn day greeted tbe crowds of
people as they came into the city
from all directions. Vehicles ol every
description and automobiles were called into use to bring into our fair
city people whose desires and ambitions were solely to see the products
which it is possible to raise in the
city and district of Cranbrook.
Many outsiders have often been
beard*to express sceptical expressions as to the possibilities of the
soil in tbe Hunt Kootenay District,
As the old adage m.ys "Tbe Proof
of the Pudding is iu the Eating there
ot," so was it clearly proved by the
exhibits shown at this year's fair.
That all these scepticisms were unfounded, and the facts as shown by
the exhibits cnn be clearly proved.
Cranbrook, therefore, cnn now, even
more than ever before, still hold
tlrst place for small fruit farming,
vegetable growing, and general farming of all kinds and classes. Some
ot the wheat, rye, oats, alfalfa and
other well known varieties of grasses
were of such excellent quality, that
the Association have deemed it wise
to reserve many of these for the exhibit that is being prepared lor the
Lethbrldge Dry Farming Congress.
The interest in the Pall Fair this
year was very notably remarked upon
by    the   officials    of the  Association
('reek and shown at the Fair which
were grown at the height of 6,750
feet above sea level.
As one, after buying the entrance
ticket to the Exhibition grounds, enters through the gate a person might
easily imagine one's self on Coney
Island; for to look and behold on
your right are gathered together for*
tune tellers, Clairvoyants, shooting
galleries, nigger throwers, etc., etc.,
which afford vast amusement to all
sight seers and children in general
To one's left, however, one is again
impressed with the large display in
the permanent building of tbe East
Kootenay Mercantile Co. Their One
showing of democruts, heavy wagons,
agricultural implements, harness, etc.
Next to this exhibit is the large refreshment booth which, this year
was conducted by the ladles of
Christ Church. This booth, through
out the whole of the Fair, received a
large patronage, and did ample justice to the needs of the visiting populace. Reaching the larger permanent building In which are place the
various exhibits, one again observes
the interest taken by local tradesmen. To the left of the entrance,
W. H. Wilson is to be seen with his
excellent display of cut-glass, watches and jewelry of all kinds, also
his optical instruments which were
often hrought into use by enquiring
visitors. To the right, the Patmore
Bros, have a splendid showing of
Bathroom requisites of all kinds.
On the opposite aide of the Hall are
We have in the brief review already
given, called attention to tbe Siberian, German and Hogg millet, also
the- rye samples shown one of which
reached the height of 7 feet, but In
addition to these he had a general
display of various fruits, vegetables
and other grains and grasses. It
might be said in passing, that the
whole of this display was grown,
practically, on uncultivated ground.
This should be particularity noted on
account of the fine quality of the exhibit. Next to this was an exhibit
which drew the attention and admiration of all sight-seers. In the centre one beheld the sign, "Creston
Exhibit." We would like to draw to
the attention of our readers that this,
exhibit was not sent In by the Creston Fruit Growers' association, as
many observers thought. It was tbe
particular exhibit of two inhabitants of Creston; namely, Mrs. W. S,
Hyckman and Mrs. J. W. Dow. The
former's part of this selection consisted principally of various kinds of

carries a high percentage of gold.
By the side of tbe ore lay a special
exhibit of potatoes grown near the
claim at an altitude of 6,780 feet.
The Staples ranch sent in from WyclitTe nn exceptionally fine display of
vegetables of all kinds. Tbeir cabbages   especially   were ao large that

has the Interest of the general public been so aroused in the productiveness of our soils, or the power to
prove by results from the ranches tn
tbe Immediate vicinity of Cranbrook
been shown so clearly as by the gate
receipts of a record attendance on
the first day of the Fair. No matter
how small the ranches or gardens
were, no matter how small or insignificant the gardens of the working men of Oranbrook, nil of
them hnd results to show in small
fruits which were surprizing to tho
beholder, Larger farms, us for instance the Indian Industrial School,
Ht. Eugene Mission, A. K. Watta,
Wattsburg; Wycllfte (Staples Farm);
produced exhibits which brought
forth acclamations of HtirprlHing won
derment at the size and quality of
the products shown. Special reference should really he made of the
summer cabbages brought In by the
Wycllfle (Staples Farm), which reach
ed an average weight of about 32
lbs each, measuring aome 12-14 Inches In diameter, tbe largest one exhibited at the Fair was the product
of this ranch and reached the enormous weight of 87 J lbs, and measuring 17! Inches In diameter. Of tho
Wattsburg farm exhibits special men
tlon should ho drawn to the three
vuritles; Siberian, Gorman and
Hogg Millet, which Is supposed to he
the first grown in this district.
This was grown on uncultivated
ground, at altitude of over 3,000
feet and Is of the highest possible
quality; the rye shown In this exhibit stood over 7 feet in height.
Altitude   apparently   hns no effect
and proves no hindrance to the pro-
department; especially are they making n showing of Purity Flour.
Throughout the whole of the exhibition this company handed out cups
of tea nnd coffee to the ladies and
gentlemen in passing. On the other
side ot the entrance hall Campbell &
Manning's have again their old
stand with a goodly display of pure
health foods. It, might here be said
in passing that the display of Limoges China shown by this tirm drew
greal attention.
The p. Burns ft Oo, this year hnd
on display a first-class line of animal food fertilizers suitable for the
farmer, cattle raiser, poultry keeper,
and gardener. These fertilizers ure
almost a nnw product in the west
and drew much attention from the
enquiring public. The next stand
on exhibit was arranged by tho Women's Institute of Crnnbrook in
which was shown a wonderful display
of ferns and flowering plants, also a
splendid example of cakes by members were here exhibited. Next to
this was a flue display of Singer Sewing Machln?s as has ever heen shown
In Cranbrook, under the personal direction of their local agent, Mr. G.
Powell. Mr. Powell, for tbo convenience of numerous enquirers had a
demonstrator at work proving the
numerous usages to which a lady can
mako of the machine.
On the opposite cowee of the Exhibition Hall, Mr. A, K. Watts, very
generously sent in an exhibit (rom
his Wattsburg ranch, which was not
to he onterod for prizes,but solely to
show the possibilities and productive
neBs of tbe soil In, and around, the
district In  which he has his abode.
Mr. T. S. Gill, the owner thereof, is
the pioneer of the bee industry in
Eastern B.C., and some of the results of his work were displayed to
great advantage in this exhibit. On
this table Mr. Gill had some of the
honey bottled, which tor its transparency, clearness and quality would
he hard to excell. The owner had
also a large square hlock of wax on j
still lay claim to be pre-emlnegt in
♦heir capabilities along this line.
The exhibition of Flowering plants
FernB, Cut-Flowers and Bouquets re
celved a considerable amount of admiration from the ladles.
In the centre of tbe Hall, opposite
the stairwny. there wns arranged in
a specially prepared glass ense, one
of the finest nnd best exhibits ot
bottled fruits ever seen in the dis
trict. These were the property and
work of Mrs. W. F. Doran. The exhibit was not made ns nn entrant to

Tbis was the puss-word ol the Agri
tlirnl Fair Grounds When it became
known there were fit ontrles for thc
Bnby Show competition,
...This competition was arranged nn
der the auspices of tiie Women's Institute, the prizes wero given by local
tradesmen f< r the prettiest baby, undor eighteen months, plainly dressed,
ami living in East Kootonny, B.C.
The tirst prize con sis tod of a Seven
Drawer Sewing Machine valued at
165.00 donated by Gen. Powell, agent
for the Singer Sowing Machine Co.,
and was won by "Beulah" daughter
ot Mr. nnd Mrs. A. G, Hill of Cranhrook.
ttie second prize consisted of a
Wagner Go-cart, donated by the
0. c. s Oo, valued at $15.00 and
was won by "Gerald Alexander"
son of Mr. and Mrs. W. I).Laidlaw,
of Cranbrook.
The third prize was jtfi.OU In cash,
donated by (ins. Thols of Perry Creek
and was won by the daughtcs of
Mr, nnd Mrs. Nelson, of Yahk,  B.C.
The judges In this contest were
obtained from outside the city and
consisted of Mrs. Rogers of Creston,
Mrs. Ross of Waldo, aud Mrs Gilchrist of Fernie.
Unfortunately, owing to a mistake
that arose, many of the mothers
brought their little mites to the
booth on the first day, only tn Ond
to their disappointment that the
judging was to be done on the second day; however,nt the time of
judging eveyone began to wonder
where all the children were comng
from. Never has it been our pleasure to see so many smiling faces
nud to hear such good.naturedly
jokes as those passed by the mothers who wece confident their bnby
was tlic prettiest and the best.
The bnbies must really have known
what was expected of them, for
scarcely a cry arose or a whimper
was to be hoard, all wanted to do
the hest they could for their uarents
and uphold the confidence which was
so openly displayed in them. Ab one
gazed at their happy little faces we
can   easily   bring   to   mind a scrap
from an old song:—
"They   are   idols   of   hearts   and of
They ale angels of God in disguise."
AU the ladles in Uie Exhibition
Hall, those who had heen visiting I
the sports, those also who had been
in various parts of tlio grounds, as
the time drew near for the judging
tobegin, all turned their steps towards the spcciiil booth provided by
the 0. 0. S. Co for this purpose,
all deeply interested In the result ol
the judging, Mr. McFarlane hnd
very thoughtfully provided a liirgo
number uf Chairs for the mothers to
recline in duoiug the period ot wklv
iug—and they were appreciated too.
The task before the Judges wns no
light one to have in view but tbey
did not shirk their task. As they
biowed the little babies, one by one,
and considered the merits of each,
Ilrst one und then another was puss
ed by until the result narrowed
down to the few. Again and again
they were sorted out until dually
the allottod prizes were awarded.
And then the hubbub, the talk, oh
dear! ono had to hold their ears or
he deafened by the tumult, the why
and the wherefores where asked and
All was now over and the mothers
of the winning ones were the proud
recipients of numerous congratulations. As these were taken home
and the mother showed the baby tu
the fatjer, well might ■ one repeat
some more lines thnt come to mind
"As summer stars, in  tholr serenest
Shine down on Earth's fair flowerets
from above,
So shine   tho   mother's eye—so fond
so tender-
On   her   yodng child—the fair flower
of love.
And    proudly    as    the   morning sun
To look on earth,
To look on Earth, when ehe is glad
and bright
The   happy   father turns, with radi
ant glances
To    the   two   forms   that make his
World of Light."

There was a large attendance Friday, attractions were flrst-claan,
and everybody was satisfied.

were first-clas-v—something that the
Cranbrook district can be proud of.
Any woman that entered a baby in
the Singer Sewing Machine prize can
got a discount of $5. off, ansh and

A pony , owned by Harry White,
which was hitched to n fence, broke
loose, running through the exposition grounds and nearly destroying
several tents and injuring two Laby
children. Most fortunately nothing
serious resulted.
There seemed to have been a misr
understanding in regard to the "Baby" show nt the Foir. Many mothers hnd the opinion that the show
was to have taken place on Thursday
when It was announced for Friday.
Owing to this mistake a large number of those entered did not appear
on Friday. There was thirty babies,
everyone of which should have been
a prize winner.
Miss Olara Whitehead of Moyie,
won 2 firsts with her paintings in the
Animal and Fruit classes. These pictures are exceptionally worthy of
special mention, being executed by
this student of the Art and she is only 1G years old. Thoy drew considerable attention among the Art lovers
because of tbelr excellency and the
transparent colors used in producing
such fruit. One of these, the fruit
scene, is 30x45 inches in size, tho model fruits were grown in this district
Tho other landscape scene with cattle
this was 36x48 inches in size. Several
Scotchmen thought this was a scene
from dear old Scotland as it resembled in a very striking way the hoa
ther hills with cattle grazing in the
valley. Miss Whitehead is to bo con
gratulated on her skill which predict*
a big future in store for her.

"Do Thou Likewise"
To find the world's greatest fj.ii
it Is necessary to go to Russia,
where the remarkable fair in the
world is held annually. It is suid
that there has been an annual fair at
Nijni Novgorod ever since the middle
of the Fourteenth Century, and it is
reasonable to suppose that as long
us there was a desire on the part of
the people of Asia to exchange their
raw materials for the more finished
products of tSuropeau industry there
would be considerable trading at Nij-
ni. since it is the nntural meeting-
place between the two continents as
far as the Russian (Umpire is concerned. The city stands nt the confluence of the two great Russian rivers, the Olga and the Volga.
The market place is in the very-
centre of tbat water communication
that joins the Caspian nnd the Black
sea to the White flea and tbe Baltic.
It in the terminus of the railway
from MOSCOW, and the railway brings
the market in communication with
Russia in Kurope and the western
world, while tbe Volga does tho
same service for Asia. There is
every natural reason, therefore, for a
Nijni Novgorod to be a great center.
With all these advantages,  however
the   population   ot   the  citv fa only
about   50,00(1.     In   fact,   tbe fair is
bigger   than   the city.    It might almost   be said   to   be a   city    in    it
self,     and    to     be     independent   of j
Nljm     Novgorod,    for   the   citizens j
themselves have little or nothing beyond   feeding it's surplus population.
Tbe fair bus it's own streets! shops, j
hotels and places oi amusement, even
It's own churrh
The church,  indeed.  Is u very notable   one.    Hm    domes   being heavily I
coated   with   gold,   and    visible   for j
many mllOfl about.    The   admliiistra '
tlon of the fair Is bv no means equal
to it's reputation, for It  Ih c.onclud ,
ed on Oriental lines, und visitors run
the   rink of contracting n fever from
the   low   lands where the streots are
built     every    time   the? visit     the
grounds.    Nevertheless, they pour in
year after year in greater numbers
than the year before, and leave it to
European sightseers to make the
The Nijai Novgorod fair is different from such exhibitions as we are
familiar with because here the spectators form the bulk of the crowd.
In Russia, tive out of six people on
the fair grounds are there tor purely
business reasons. They want to buy
or sell. Few of them are there (or
the purpose of advertising goods
thnt mny be bought at some subsequent date.
All are to do business, and they
huve their goods to sell on the apot.
There is no fixed price for anything.
All business is done after a certain
amount of haggling. One price Is
asked another price Ih offered and
the deal is continued until the descent of one und the ascent of another
make it possible to close a bargain.
It ia suid thut the women vendors
are the worst oflendors in that they
Ilrst price, if they were the Hellers,
are au high, and so low if they are
purchasers, that n great amount ot
time is wasted before serious business Is approached. Practically every
sort of goods are bought and sold lu
the Nijni bazaar, from American
alarm clocks to Russian sables tbat
may some day form a part of a duch
ess' coronation robe, and from Oriental rugs to fountain pens.
The throe articles in which there is
tho greatest activity are ikons, samovars and furs. Kvery orthodox Run
slan has un Ikon, the religious emblem that plays auch a prominent
part in the ceremonies of tbe Greek
church. The fact, that a Russian has
one Ikon la the strongest reason for
blm to aupply himself wltb a hand
aomer one when he has the oppor
tunlty, and consequently there Is nov
or any slackening In the demand.
The Hamoval, which Is really a tea
urn, differing from the Kngllsh article ouly   l-ecuuse   tbe bot cinders to
boil the water are placed in an inner
tube Instead of underneath in a brazier, is probably the article most universally in use in Russia. Whole
streets are devoted to the sale of
snmovars, and the prices vary from
tbe peasants' samovar, which can be
bought tor a tew cents, to tbe ornate
samovar that costs mnny hundreds
of dollars.
The furs, though, are the great
feature of tbe show fair. Many acres
are devoted to shops that deal ln
furs alone. It would be expected
that only the furs taken in Russia
would be sold, hut tbe fur market nt
Nijni attracts hunters and dealers
from all parts of the world, and you
can buy a tiger skin .n the heart of
Russia as readily as in India.
It is tho fur market tbat has made
the great fair famous outside of Rus
Hia. It is said tbat tbe prices there
are much cheaper than those prevailing elsewhere, but the keen competition of rival bidders is surely forcing
them up to the standard, and the
sellers are becoming educated to the
fact The fair at Nijni Novgorod o-
penH in the latter part of July, but
there is not much doing until about
the middle of August.
From then until late in September
business never tings. When the fair
closes the unsold goods are packed
up and shipped away, the buildings
are cloned, the pontoon bridge connecting the fair grounds with the
town are removed and tho Governor-
General returns to hln residence. In
the Autumn the fair groimds is almost always under water and through
the Winter it remains a field of ice.
No attention Ih paid to the place until Hummer comes again, when a couple of week's preparation ih considered sufficient to put the place In
condition to receive the men-bantu
and tbe customers once more.
World Swinging to Republican Form of Government
The German emperor Ik reported to
have confessed to a historiun named
Kroon that "my (William's) Bon j
| will he the last of the emperors. All
the world within .IO years will be republican. Germany will be the last
ol the empires.   It Is* inevitable."
If Emperor William really uttered
this confession, which is startling ub I
coming Irom the staunchest modem
up-holder ol imperial perogatlve and
the divine right of kings, he showed
himself open-eyed to the signB ol tho
times. He is so far.sighted a states-1
man and so astute a politician, that
he can hardly be blind to tho
"Weighed and found wanting" that
democracy and socialism are writing
on the walls of the palace.
The   emperor   Is   right   nn   to tho j
growth of democratic ideals and re-
publican  Institutions throughout the
world.     Tho trend la unmintnkeahlc. :
Kven   China   has   nsrhleved   radical
changes in tbe shape and methods ol
government,   swim-in,:    in   n   single j
year    from absolutist  monarchy   to
representative monarchy to representative   democracy.    Republics, themselves,        whether      tiny     Switxer
laud,   aristocratic   Franco,  or  hugh
and plutocratic   America, evince     n
drift towards pure democracy. Nations of vast expanse nnd hugh population manifest a growing desire lor
direct government by tho people an
executive, judicary and legislative.
Whether thc present crown prince
ol Germany will prove to be the last
of thc German Emperors is another
question. The Germans, of course,
are capable of governing themselves
without uny over-ruling sovereign.
The day iB sure to dawn when they
will strip the Hohensollern dynnsty
ol its autocratic domination over ths
government. Bnt Kngland hns long
had a virtually ropublicnn government nnd yet remains satisfied to retain a king or queen. It cares more
lor the substance ol democracy than
for the name and enjoys the social
distinction conferred hy hnvlng a
sovereign and court. It mny be that
the Germans, likewise, will be con
lent to reduce their emperor to a dg-
urc head on the ship pf stnte, while .
putting ono ol thomoclvea on the
Captain's bridge. On the othor band
however, tho Germans aro more
thoroughgoing aud radical than the
Kngllsh anil may chop away tho royal figurehead altogether.

Shall bread be baked In the house?
Mrs. Henrietta W. Calvin, dean of
' the Home Bconomlcs department of
tbe Oregon Agricultural College be
llevte lt Is not only cheaper to bake
at home, hut that tho bread Is more

She has figures to support her argument.
"All Intelligent women uro now
interested in discussing questions relating to industries in the homo und
those which can with advantage lie
taken out of the homo and carried on
In large factories or centres," says
Mrs. Calvin.
"In regard to tho production ot
bread, certain factors must bo considered, as the comparative cost of
the borne produced article and that
purchased, tb* comparative quality
and cleanliness and the general sunt
tary conditions.
"In considering ths cost ol home
baked bread, it may be figured as
Cost of flour lor 4 loaves, 3 lbs lie
Cost of liquid, lqt slcm. mlk 02.

Tirre hope, for making the Fall
Fair such a big success.
We bespeak, for next year, your assistance in making it bigger and better than
ever. The District of South-east Kootenay need not be
ashamed of her Products— no other part of British Columbia, or Canada, can produce more or better Fruit or Vegetables, and, although not a grain district, the Grain Displays
were excellent.
THE DISTRICT DISPLAY, which is now being arranged for the Dry Farming Congress to
be held at Lethbridge next month, will not, we predict, be excelled. Yet it behoves you to lend your
assistance and make it so much better than any
other display that our ability will be heralded far
and wide
