Briefly speaking that's our guarantee; and it's
just as broad as we can make it. In fact, it's
so broad that unless El Sidelo Cigars please
your taste and win your approval, they cost you
absolutely nothing.   Here is our offer:
Step into a cigar store
and buy 50c worth of El Sidelo Cigars (Chesterfield or Club House size). Smoke them critically; note their mild, delicate flavor, and
rich fragrance. Judge them from the standpoint
of your own likes and dislikes. Then if you are
not thoroughly satisfied, return the bands to us
and get your money back.

nious support of the farmers, without |
which the Fair would be an absolute '
failure, no matter how hard the Fair'
officials worked.
The display of Cattle. Horses, Hogs.
Chtckens, drains. Fruits, Vegetables,
etc., WOS wonderful ulltl wus evidence'
enough tint the country is going a-
hend Instead of haokwoid.
At one time the Directors were urged to cancel the Fair us it was predicted a failure; a special meeting
was called and. characteristic of the
true East Kootenay boosters, the
Directors said no. the country Is ai-
rlght, and tlie knocker bus no place In
it, we Will hold the Fair and. with tbe
co-operation of tho fnrmers, of which ;
they were assured, make it a success. ■
The stock barns wore ull filled, the
poultry building wns filled to overflowing and extra coops had to lie
provided, the big main building wns
jammed full from top to bottom.
1 wish to express my gratitude to
our gootl friends from Creston, who
carted off mosl of our Jewelery for
tbeir display of fruits and vegetables.
I wish them good luck ..nil hope they
will come again. Their wonderful exhibit will spur our people to do greater things next year and will give our
rreston friends n harder fight: tliey
are all good sports und we can rest
assured tbey will give n good account
of themselves. I appreciate tlie help
of the farmers of tliis district: they
came out to win cud 1 um sure the
many words nf praise were well deserved and tlieir efforts next year will
he greater,
The Ladles with their display of
Cimkery. Preserved Fruits, and Vegetables, Fancy Work, etc., were u greM
factor iu the success of the fair and j
words of praise were heard, and 1
wish to thank them loo.
Thc School Children's display wus
wonderful and witiiout it the Fair
would have been Incomplete; und I
also wish to thank them and trust next
J'Onr they will do even belter.
I   wish   to express   my   I hunks   mid
giutitiide to tlie Secretary and Directors for their hard work and hearty co-
Ini conclusion I wlih to thank those
who look part In the sports; tholr
assistance and good fellowship made
it easy to adjust any dlflctilttos wlilch
arose and, unfortuutttoly, some misunderstandings nre bound to creep lu.
I hnve heard nothing hut word* of
praise for Fair In general nud 1 am
sure, wiih the snme co-opcralion nnd'
au  early  start, nexl  year's  F:ilr  will
surpass this om*.
Again thanking every one. 1 am,
Yours very truly.
