Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 13, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta "BRINGING UP FATHER" THE LETHBR1PGE, DAILY HEfULD ---------- "...... ity: to like to KNOW NOV TMBV qil AV/AX WITH IT ' ' fo� instance  why HE put*, his arm* arouno her neck. and aumo*t loves YOU �>MD a WOULD HAVE  CHOKEO HER to DEATH  F THE.PoLiCE HADN'T  NTERFERE6- ,,,'///,' BASEBALL BOXING RACING 1-SPORT HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING Local Ball Fans Show Lack Interest ,_. -�- -*- But there will be a Team in Field it some kind soul were to drop tows into Lethbridgo with a ready-made winning ball team. Lethbridge fans wpuld no doubt support, it, but when it comes to a matter like organizing a club and getting together and whipping a team into shape, the fans are conspicuous by their' absence. '. The meeting of the bugs called tor last night to talk over the situation was about zero in enthusiasm. Four or five were present and nothing was done. So Vulcan will be informed today that Lethbridge will await developments before entering a team in the proposed league. Lethbridge would be a good bail town this summer it someone would supply the team. That is about the sum- and Bnbstance of the situation here. Just what will be the outcome remains to be seen. It will be better known after the first practice is called- That there will be some good new' material "available for the team was learned last night. Two new pitcher* hate pat in an appearance in Scott and/^ennetwiti. The former played _wlth -a winning Ontario amateur team last year, while the latter was a member of the famous Shasta ieam of the Southern Pacific. It is aisp whispered about that there is a third pitcher in the district who will shov. something new in slants. He is farming near Lethbridge but has played pro ball. ijeantime the 1917 uniforms are being'gathered together. All those who have suits, put,, are requested to turn them in tb the Herald Office. Thef will be ptft fts shape for the first game of the season which will likely be arranged to take place early in May. A practice is likely to be called shortly when the boys themselves will probably arrange for a temporary manager to put them'through their paces until something ie definitely settled as to entering the league. Cox Tells Story of Mabel Trask, Great Racing Nag of Circuit. � ^^^^ Buy* Speedy Trotter From An lowsn Before He Ever Saw Her and Tbouoht He Had Been Stung-Did Not Take Mare Long to Show Speed. (By W. H. Cocher) ~ "There she is." remarked Walter Cox; as he stopped in front of a box till,, in the canary colored barn near the entrance to the Granite State Park at Dover, N.H. At the sound of bis voice the occupant of the stall walked towards the halt door, over which she stuck her chestnut head with a couple of spots of white in the face and whinnied softly for sugar. As none was forthcoming she took a glance down the line at Young Todd, FrlBCo Worthy. Busy's Lass, and Lu Princeton.and turned away, while the rolnsman, whose skill had made her name a household word, took up the thread of the conversation and uaid: "In my opinion and trom what 1 can . learn, she is the greatest mare that,] ever .wore a "harness." "Later In the day, in response to an Inquiry as to haw he selected Mabel Frank from the hundreds of horses ottered him every year. Cox said: "I . owned her two or three weeks before I aaw her, �nd I have always thought that someone wished her on to me, because none of the western people that had seen her trained and raced considered her worth bothering with. Boasts Other Horse ."I never heard of Mabel Trask until one morning in April, 1915, when I received a long night better from Ijd. Allen, of Marion, la. He must have been saving up al^ winter to pay for that message, the substance of .which wa� that there were two 4-year-old tillles by Peter the Great out in the corn country that were for sale. He piled the bouquets on Jeanette Speed and wanted me to believe that she sould win all the purses in the Grand Circuit, while her mate was a little side reigning spitfire, with a three-year-old record of 2:14 1-1. made over a mile track. Now what do you think of that with 2 year olds going 2,04, while I had to take the two or lose Jeanette? For all of this information, with the two'fillies throwa in Allen only wanted $3,500, and in oTder to I keep him from sending any more mes-! sages i sent 1iim the money. "James Hogan, who had trained > the fillies and "filled Allen to the lid j with Jeanette Speed, was moving cast I to Rochester, N. Y.. so he and Allen I packed the two fillies into a freight j car; with Hogan's household goods and ' kissed thern good-bye. From Rochester, to Dover the pair put on a few airs, i and some more expenses, by riding in 1 an express car. Mabel Full of Whims "When they arrived all of the big events of the year had closed, except at Columbus and Lexington. Like all of my horses, I started Mabel Trask off with a loose check rein and did not even put the bit in her mouth. I also soon found that she was as full of �whims as a schoolgirl. She would stop whenever she felt so disposed, and- would only turn one way on the track, and sometimes she would not even dp ttfat. She quit side reining,' which I think was caused by heiug checked high.but it took some time to-ha*e-heri~j|0'-where and-when I wanted her. "Frequently when I was jogging her on the sand roads outside the park she would hear tomeone chopping In the -buafa or�a squirrel rustling in the leaves and stop for four or "fiTe inimites. Then, like a flash she would rush off at a ten gait. One-day I decided to try what a stroke of the whip would do. I made the application, for the next five minutes I was so busy dodging heels and keeping her from jumping the fence that I never tried it again. Between times I also found that she had more speed for a brush than any horse I ever sat behind, but in order to use-it I had to get control and have her respond when 1 touched the button. In the interval I also wrote Barton Pardee, -who had requested me to find him a couple of trotters, and told him what Ed. Allen had wished on me. At the same time I also told him that he could have the pair at cost. Mr. Pardee bought thenr just as I did. without seeing them, but before he did, I wrote him that one of them was a wonderful trotter. 1 suppose it sounded like' the "same old story, as he suggested that I enter the good one in a couple of small purses at Cleveland, while I also named her in the ?10,000 race at Columbus. "Mr. Pardee joined the stable at Cleveland about a week before the meeting. As soon as he arrived, 1 advised him to hold Mabel Trask over I also showed him a mile in 2.10. but that did not impress him very much. However, he decided to -declare her out, and when lie did, Mabel was started on a slow preparation for 1916. When we arrived at Hartford Mr. Pardee said he was going1' home. I Ssked him to remain over 'for' ai}-pther day. and told him to get out to Charter Oak Park bright and early with his watch. He was' thexe,, and after timing Mary Putney a half in 1.01 he saw Mabel , Trask trot a mile in 2.04 .1-1. That made him smile, and I think � -was the first time that summer. Later in the day when someone offered $25,000"1for her he shook his head and.walked away. After this mile ^ I also_ decided to start-her at Columbus. "With but two weeks to get her ready, she trotted second to Peter Scott, ivjjile her manners were perfect. * o "After that rate buyers were thicker than bees on a berry bush in June, and one of them finally offered $35,000. You can better. be)leve that I coaxed Mr. Parde$ tpysetlj. Finally one morning wb,en; hk iha'^-igrowS weary of listemiu 'to "my talk; Mr. Pardee said that He: would sell'Jfabel Trask, -but that .1 wn's'not to bother him again until I was offered his price" When I asked him what it was h^ said. $250,000. It took me about three days to get my breath back. However, the mare was not sold, and (was glad she was hot,'even at that figure. 'Which was twice the amount paid for Arino. and more money than was etfer asked for any horse in the history of the world;" Latter. .Would Have Been Bad Medicine For Meteoric Youngster Mitchell Springs both front and rear, are of the shock absorbing type.

Nashville, Tenri., April 11.-After deliberating several hours the jury in j the case of Fred Toney, pitcher of the t Cincinnati National league ->~bajeball I club, charged with violation of the ' draft law, reported last night that it wa% unable to reach an agreement.

A match that should prove of more than ordinary interest to the boxing fans, now that Willard and' Fulton are signed up, will be a clash between Billy Mlske, the St. Paul light-heavyweight, and Jack Dempsey, one of the contenders for the heavyweight crown. Dempsey and his manager, Jack Kearns, tried every means possible to force their way to a match with Willard and side-track Fred Fulton^ They tried hard to match himSip with Fulton, with the hope that txempsey iiight defeat him and thus get the Willard match; but Mike Colling, manager of Fulton, had been after the champion a long time and bad taken on too many matches to be pushed aside at the last moment, Dempsey made a great splurge during the last five months, coming out of oblivion into* the bright sunlight; but when it came right down to cases, Fulton was on hand with a record that could not bo cast aside, and, as a result, he was the man chosen to go up against the' champion in , a title match on July 4. Miske recently put up a fine 10-round battle with Fulton ut St. "Paul, but just the same Billy feels down in his heart that he would have little chance to win from Fulton In a match of any distance. Miake is built more after the style of Dempsey and his fighting is very similar to that of the coast man; bo that when they,clash April 26 at St. Paul they are expected to put up a red-hot argument. Dempsey will, have the advantage in weight by about 10 pounds, but he will find Mlsko a tough proposition, no matter what happens. �  � � 0- * ? * * �  Los Angeles 1, 5, 1; Vernon 5, 8, 0.
