There is a great deal more talent in the city lor the teams than last year 'and the teams could.--be up- on. As in.everything-.else, Edmonton is even after Calgary's scalp in base- ball. The way the Edlllonton Bulle- tin, gets after Crist and his White Sox for allowing the amateurs to pull off an break last Saturday is simply crude. With two. the eighth inning of the game at Cincinnati yesterday. the Cubs broke loose and gave one of the grandest exhibitions of hitting, running and inside playing ever seen.

Go into any of the big offices. Pick out a hundred men. Separate the shabby from the well dressed. And you'll find the un- reliable men, the careless men, the men-at-the-bottom, are shabby men. Shabby clothes seem to breed a shabby mind, just as bad thoughts breed bad habits. It's the clothes we wear every day, that influence our lives, just as it is the things we do every day that make us what we are. A frock coat and an hour in churdh on Sunday, won't equalize six days of shabbiness and dishonesty. Dress your body and you dress your mind. "Progress Brand" Clothing is an incentive to good work.
