They had to do It to even up on tho barnstorming series, so Hill turned them loose and they did the trielc. The liattery battery fllvvered. Blair essayed to hand out the slants with I'ottB as bis receiving mate, lilair hadn't had a ball in his hand this year while I'otts is just a few days out of the hospital, so there may have been some excuse. When the Kilties bad piled up 11 juicy runs, Cap. Stewart of the Battery ragged himself to the mound. As a rule ho has somehtlng on the ball but all that, could be noticed last night was the cover and the High- landers just about knocked that off. Seven loud and clamorous swats ripen- ing into seven tallies was the result of his round on the .mouil'l, so in the riflh ho cnased himself to second base and Gunner Bonnell took up the bur- den Mo was the only hurler put up who sot away with It, blanking I he llulli in tile fifth and last period. Only five innings were played. The spectat- ors figured out what nine inninp would have been for to H. i Card was on the hump for .the Kilt- ies. He was boasting a sore wing and yielded up enough hits which combin- ed with errors gave the Battery eight runs. In the first they annexed throe hits for a total of runs. In the fifth and last frame they got two more, making eight. And ,'nat's about all. To say more would bo as superfluous as sixteen or so of the runs made during the same. A couple of accidents added spice lo the proceedings. Tn tho second Mas- on on second for picked up a hot one on the point of bis mid- dle finger and went out of the pro- ceedings with the member split bill not broken. Then in the third Holts and Home went after a high fly. It looked like.the catcher's ball but when the smoke had cleared away Potts was out. He stayed with tho game through the innings but afterwards fainted and went to the hospital with a broken rib.

The K.-UDB. while not the best seen in parts, was a good one and on account of Stavely'ts errors Lomond pulled out of the fray with 3 runs to the good, the score lie- ing 7-4. According to Hoyie. Stavoly should have won if the game had gone the way llaynes, their pitcher, would have it go. He only allowed cluan hits arid struck out 7 men. with no passes. Lomond's twlrler, Wigg. was also working In good order although he was hit harder than Haynes, he was able to keep them scattered and was "there" in the tight places. His support was good too, every man on the team playing the game from the start. "Doc" Nelson and Torgesuu gave de- cisions so satisfactorily that argu- ments were few.

North Bay, Out, Aug. es- tablishment by the government of customs smelters In Northern Ontario was hinted at in a speech here Satur- day night by-Hon. G. Howard Fergu- son, minister of lands, forests and mines, who said that he would not be surprised if the government took up- on itself the task of establishing cus- toms smelters, which would be a ben- efit to small mine owners in that part of the country. mm OF (CONTINUED Fitoai FRONT PAGE) MAGRATH Alagrnth, Aug. a continua- tion of warm weather, harvesting will be brought on as soon as last year, a few tall grain patches will be cut this week, some early harlcy and rye was lie latter part of last week, and the earliest spring grain will be seen in the shock some time during next week. The acreage is almost as large as last year, but will possibly not yield quite so heavily, on acouut of a large acreage being disced in. .CARDSTON Cardaton, Aug. district has fairly jumped along toward har- vestiiig time the last two" weeks, ow- ing to.the dry, warm weather. To the west and south crops are still -eported from a week to ten days later .but. rapidly. To the north along the Belly and Wa- ;ertqn Jlirera crops are almost as far advanced as last year. East to Raley ind .Wqqlford, crops arc .very.little Inter-tliih'iiiBt year at this time. -AHvain.will be shorter as to straw, ;nit. yield will make a splendid in some parts of the hill country will be even better than last year. Late grain will need more moisture to raoke a good the early grain' is in fine condition and fall wheat will be ready for cutting by the 20th of August if not before. .Haying Es hi full blast and tlmotfcy is a splendid hay is also nit excellent stand. Taken as a whole, tho Cardston ills- "Nobleman'" trict never looked mure only iiilvnrKo point IB tho decreas- cct acreage whluli will be about twenty- five cent under hist year. PINCHER CREEK HiK'lHii1 ('reek, Aug. la estim- ated by good authority that crops In tills 'district will not exceed 60 per cent, of tho crops garnered last year. This is owing mostly to tho unfavor- able weather for ploughing last making a Kbortage of land ready for seeding tins spring. If the weather continues warm and dry, it is expect- ed that In the last week of this month we will again hoar tho song of tho binder. The general estimate oi! the different grains and hay in crop are as follows: JiiiOO acres of wheat, which wMl average 25 bus.; IJ.OflO acres of oals. average G5 bus.; -100 acres bar- ley. There easily acres of hay, tho timothy of which averages abont tons to the acre, timothy hay has novor been of a hotter (jiinl- ity than this year, hut the quantity doer, not quite come np to tho past record. COWLEY Cowley. Aug. hot days and far from cold nights have worked won- ders with the crop. The acreage actu- ally in crop is probably (if; per cent of last year, the prospects per acre are probably SO per cent of last year, but every hot day improves those pros- pects. Spring wheat is coming very fast, some of the spring wheat, south- east of Cowley on the Old Man river will feel the, knife in less than ten days, given a continuance of this wea- ther. The fall wheat is going to be a good crop and is assured. The hay crop Is going up very fast and very well, the actual yield is probably lid per cent, of last year, hut the finality is hotter and the slacker and appear to be successfully replacing the men who have enlisted. The labor question Is nut going to be any more serious than expected, probably less so. MONARCH Monarch, Aug. around this point are improving daiiy. To tho south-east of here crops are nearly as heavy as last year, direct south the crops looks about an average of "0 bushels to the acre, west of here the crops are very heavy and north and nortii-west fully tip to last year, but the best looking crops He north-east of town, where 4a bushels and up look like being threshed. Cutting will start about the 28th, on the south side, and about -1 days later on the north of the C. P. H. track. The average will he about U5 per cent wheat, 35 per cent oats and no flax or barley. NOBLEFORD Nobleford, August in this district are progressing favorably and many of them look exceptionally fine. About 80 per cent of the total crop Is in wheat, 15 per cent in oats and abont PAGE THREE Prompt Relief from the ali-tqo-common ills of the digestive organs weak Stomach, torpid liver and inac- tive is found in the always safe, sure, quick-acting BEECHAM'S PILLS Urititt Sale oFAnr Mcdicinn m t tin World.

Many of the crops arc hardly so far ad- viinced as they were last year, al- though there are some fields which will he cut just as early. No damage ha.s been done by runt or hail in this district. Some few fields have been slightly affected by a blight which, came about three weeks ago, but this is not at all general. Cutting will start within the next two weeks, in some places next week. The wheat is rapid- ly ripening and will soon be ready tor the binder. TABER Tabpr. Aug. 5. The various crops, In tins district, were never better than. now. The weather lias been all 'that could be desired. All crops are free from smut, and hail damage is nil. Out north of town Mr. Thorpe lias made preparation to start cutting 200 acres oC wheat on "Monday. Perry Love 1ms about a 1500 acre crop which wiil be ready In six days. South- west, Mr. Schnrn has started today to cut his barley. The crops south ftnd east are not so far advanced, and will not be ready for about 10 days. Hay- malting IK now in full swing and heavy. crops are reported all round. BOW ISLAND Bow Taland. Aug. The percentage of crops comparing with the year 1915 is: Wheat 85. oats 75, barley 75, flax 100, and the crons at the present aro nearly as far advanced as they were at this time last year, and with the continued warm weather they will be ready in another week. There are no indications of. rust or damage of any kind and many farmers will be cutting within the next week or ten days and will be in full blast within two weeks if weather continuea as now, indications excellent. VULCAN Vulcan. Aug. Harvest will be gei> era! in three weeKs. The present wea- ther is ideal for ripening grain in some places is well turned. Your correspondent made a trip through the east country, to Lomond, and saw field after field ot grain which will easily make forty bushels to the acre.
