Splendid Exhibits, Both of Animals and Grain, Won Admiration of Judges and Spectators. One of the most Interesting sights at the International Live Stock show at Chicago was the evening parades of horses and cattle. As the Cana dian section of these parades came in to view, and as it passed around the ring, there was continued applause. There were two or three reasons for this, the principal ,one being that in this section there were the wonderful Clydesdales, the Belgians and the Per cherons that had carried off champion ships and first prizes. The province of Saskatchewan had a splendid dis play of Clydesdales and showed In a number of classes, and In every class they got In the money. A remarkable and noted winning was that of the University of Saskatchewan, showing "Lady Bruce," female Clydesdale, In a class of 24 and taking second. In competition there were entries from such famous studs as Conyngham Bros, of Wilkesbarre, P. L. James of Easton, Mass., and George Chiett of the same state. She was beaten by an Imported mare, but was later made champion American-bred mare and reserve grand champion, an honor never before conferred upon anything but an Im ported animal. The following are some of the good things that Canada won at the Inter national, in a fair fight and no favors. Grand championship for Clydesdale stallions ; championship for American bred Clydesdale mares; reserve senior and reserve grand championships for Clydesdale mares; grand champion ship for Southdown sheep ; sweepstakes grand championship for wheat for the continent of America ; championship for Durum wheat for America. Another of the reasons for the ap plause given the Canadian sections of the parade was the heartiness with which the American spirit was imbued that Impelled it to greet with the full est appreciation the efforts of the win ner, and the hundreds of Canadians in the immense audience of the amphi theater appreciated It. The purpose that Canada had In making exhibits from their farms, whether It was of live stock and they had It there In all branches grains, grasses or roots, was to demonstrate that the war had not created devasta tion, that the country was alive with interest in the matter of production and that It had ability to produce In a manner that would bring It champion ships, and what better place than the International, where it would be placed before thousands, many of whom, with the enlightenment thus gained and with a desire to better their condition, would be made to realize that in the neighboring country to the north there was an opportunity that It might be of advantage to them to embrace.
