"I >av9 always c-jntended that tho playefs of the present do not put up the!e of ball that was seen in the old balional league," says Anson. "Of the present day pitchers Mcthew-3on was the greatest. Alexander and Johnson are first class performers. Joiinson has as nice a delivery as any pftcher I ever witnessed. He gets great speed Without apparent effort, and shoult} last for many years. "In the olden days we had a dozen stars, and there are not over two now. CoiUni is prohably th� greatest, with Gobi) a close second. "When I picked my all time all star team I gace all the places to the Did timers, and they deseired them. B�(Ore we had professional ball thsre w4s a period of twenty years In ijviich the players were in .the making. The very best of the lot were taken for the big show. Later we replenished dtr supply by taking the cream of the American association. "Billy Sunday, in his prime, could run rings around Ty Cobb. Where are the players nowadays who compare with Buck Bwing, Fred Dunlap, Fred Pfeffer and Billy McPhee? Buck Swing was the best catcher who ever worked behind the bat. John Clark-son was probably the best of the old time pitchers. The Boston club paid CJhJcago 120,000 for Ml^e Kelly and ClarkBon, and they wel-e worth the money. "1 had to wreck my old Chicago team in much tlie same way that Connitf .Mack wrecked the present day .\thletics. My team was just as much ahead of the other teams of my day i as Mack'i chaiirpionshlp Athletics ' were better than the other teams of j the American and National leagues : just a few years ago.

Amos Rusie had more speed than any other pitcher. Clark Griffith would probably have been the bes't if he had had the speed. He had control developed as no other pitcher ever had and knew every batter in the league. "When we took our first trip around the world we had intended to go only as far as Australia.

THE HOUSE OP SERVICE LETHBRIDGE, ALTA. Zucli Wheat, Brooklyn holdout, has 11 been placed in class A4 by his local j di-afi iioard at Polo. Soldiering is one I! job tliai hp can't refuse to do because wages don't suit liim. tor greater hog production. At first he was inclined to look at the whole food control program as if it were more^or less of a joke, but on reading secret telegrams from Lord Rhondda, Briti.^li food controllei-, he saw that he was niist?ken. Ho saw that a shorfage of bacon, one of the most-needed foods at the front, was threatened, and lie took hold, with the result that eastern Canada waa organized right down to the township lines witiiin a few days, while the west was well organized shortly afterwards. He said the farmers were more tlian willing to fe'ed high priced grain io hogs when they learned the need, lie then told of the difficulties surrounding the commercial side of the enteri)rl?e. The bacon produced must be taken away, in this connection lie said ('anada 'had been much more suecpsHfiil than the Unit-' od States, owing chiefly to the tact that the Canadian railways had never once failed lo deliver goods to the seaboard when ships were available. In the I/. S. there was a surplus of bacon because tho railways had not acoompUalied thi.s. H was a great tribute to the Canadian railways. Answering the que.stioii why the use of bacon in Canada was not stopped altogether, he said lliere waa no need for hysteria. If the bacon were all needed, its use by Canadians would be stopped, but there is always a certain amount of what is called domestic bacon, which it \voi\ld be unproflt-ablc! to .ship, and this must be used at home. "If the-! pf;ople of Canada will live up to the regulations now, in force (hero will be no need to go fur-Ihcr at present." Sugar Question Mealing with llic sugar situation, lie .said all the sugar available to the ullieg is rtonirolled by the allies. A sugar board has cdntrol and Canada has. one representatiN o on that board. The needs of the allies are' llret met, then the remainder is divided between (Janada iind the United States, and the neufrals. i^ast year Canadar was cut down OO.Ouo tons on her sugar supply. This vear she is cut down 100,000 tons. This shurtage i� um prliicipally hy cuiiini iovu ilx�lfiif ifi.j'\ lrn is taking its place. Mr. .McGregor has great faith In tlid people of Canada. "When they nre told the need they'll rise to the occasion every time." Mr. McGregor declared in closing I that Canada, properly organized, could produce all the foodstuffs the allie.s nee(>, and It a start had been made in such an organization at the beginning of the war we would be doing so now. He also spoke a good word for .Mr, Trefz oX tho U. S. board who will speak here next Monday night, and iirged every man, woman and child In i^ethbrldge lo hear liim. Mr. McGregor was heartily thanked by President Marnoch and the members of the board for toming to Leth-bridgo and clearing up so^e of the misunderstandings . about Iho food control. He left at midnight tor Champion, where he owns two large farms which are under cultivation this year. Altogether Mr. '.McGregor win have 5000 acres under crop this year so that he is one member of tho food control'board wlio is doing his.] tie. Damaged Cruiser When the attacking ship and its landing party had completed thoir work, the sailors and marinea were taken aboard again despite the damaged condition of the cruiser, which then began to make its way out of the harbor. One of the seventeen inch shells, out of the hundreds of various calibres fired at the cruiser, got well home in her upper works. Her steering gears were Irfjured. and she signalled an escort, ship to show her the way out, but before help arrived she had found her way out and had taken-her place under lier own steam behind the lines ol protecting cruisers. One man who watched the operation from an escorting ship said lo the nally Chronlcla's correspondent: "When we saw the damage she had suffered It seemed scarcely possible that she was able to keep afloat. The men below must have worked like trojnns' for she was throwing flames ten feet high from her funnels and she made the fastest time she probably ever accomplished." Ten-fold Hell The narralai- described the combined noise or the Get-man gun fire and the explosions on the mole as a ':ten-fold hell." He added: "We were only four or five hundred yards away from the point of the mole but were afraid to fire a shot lest we reveal our exact whereabouts to the enerfly. Apparently, he nearly Judged it for he threw any number of shells around us. At a moderate estimate between, 300o and 4000 shell:^ W0)fe fired at the attacking squadron." The German destroyer which was sunk was ram^iKid amidships 'and torpedoed. Tliose who returned lo the Kentish, port also say that boarders rushed info the German destroy-er:s anchored in thte harbor, taking them completely by surprise. Some of the Germans liurrled up the hatchways in their night clothes but before they could reach the decks, the British sailors knocked theta on the head with clubs and rifles and 'sent them .tumblinfe down the hatchways. Beats Hobion's Feat London, .'Vpril 24.-Articles by naval writers and editorials in the morning newspapers eulogized with noturHl pride the volunteers who carried,out the raid at Zeebrugge and Ostend. Lieut. Hobson's feat at Santiago and Togo's exploit at Port Arthur are recalled as notable precedents, but the landing on the beach at Galllpol! is regarded by some writers .as the only real parellel. Curiosity is expressed as to tho tale of the crews of two old submarines which were assigned to blow u\.n!iefiuent draining of tho ^ Brut;i'ii Canal lack confirraatiun. If'subs'iii-ti-ted this presuin.ibly would bo the gifutcat achievement of the raidiuy squadron. Estimates of the time the Germans will need to remove the obatruction.s from the channel and repair the damaged mole vary. Son)e'''a38urae that many days will intervene, others many weeks, while still others seem to suppose that the damage cannot be repaired for a very loiigtirae. Warns of Disappointment London, April 24.-Admiral '�Lord Boresford in an interview on the raid on German submarine bases, while eulogizing the Zeebrugge achievement as a splendid thing .and quite worlli attempting, wmna against disappointment if the results do not reach tho most sanguiiie expectations.
