" (from Our Own Correspondent) Lomond, Aug. 6.--The rain today and last night was welcomed by the farmers. Yesterday was the first day of the Lomond fair and a baseball tournament was the big feature of the day. All sports and the dance have beau called off on account of the rain and mud. Jock Hartwtck will soon have his brick house finished. t Harvest la here once more. The binders on several farms have commenced work. The rain last night and today will make the grain All splendidly. The ripe wheat is good on summerfullbw and breaking and the stubble is better than was expected. Cutting will practically be general lu iv few days, many having fifty awes of wheat in the shock already. DONE Patient-"One thousand dollars? Would you mind itemizing the bill?"" Doctor-"Certainly not. Twenty-five dollars for the operation itself, five hundred for my reputation, and the remainder because you have the money."--Judgo. Winnipeg, Aug. S.-Clonic Tnit, the new Canadian lightweight champion, was tho unanimous choice over Benny l-laskell in the 12-rmmd bout held in tlie open air at Norwood Park baseball grounds tonight. Kxcept in the opening round, Haskell was completely outclassed. The first round was oven. Haskell was good at the infighting and landed often, but Talt came hack strong with a nasty left, and earned an even break. The second and third sessions went to Tait, who gained confidence rapidly. He had a good left poke working well, which Benny could not fathom, and he landed time and again without a return. Haskell woke up in thu fourth, and had the crowd on its feet with right and left swings to the body. Tait fiuished strong, but- Haskell won by a shade. Haskell started tho fifth with a spectacular crouch, working his arms like a windmill. Ho landed hard on the champion's ribs with no outward effect, and Tait kept shooting his left at Benny's faco. Haskell was groggy whon tho hell rang. The sixth and seventh rounds wero oven. Haskell took a lot of punishment, but ho landed twice with deceptive leads to tho body, which kept the champion guessing. The next three'rou-.ds went to Tait by av wide margin. Haskell was strong at the opening, but weakened considerably, and Tait got his left working to damaging effect. It looked as though Benny would ho put away at ai)y time now, but his wonderful stamina kept him on his feet against the fearful punching. Haskell landed low in the tenth round, but the champion's claim was ignored by Referee Bun Foley. Has-' kcll's best showing was in tho eleventh. Too to toe, tho combatants stood nnd exchanged wallops, but Tait's blows were the most effective, although an even break was all it was worth. The final session was Tait's. Haskoll was wild and missed liinuf chances to land by rocklessnoss, Tait connected a terrific left to the chin which made Haskell cover up. NOBLEMEN CIGARS "Made for those who want the best."

TRIPLE PLAY BY LOCALS FEATURE CAI First Staged Here In Many Years-Locals Couldn't Hit Beazer and Lost 9-3 retire in the third. L. Dunsworth went to centre and misjudged a couple of flies. The Cardston boys stung the ball hard while the locals couldn't find Beazer. Beazer lived up to his reputation. He held the locals to six hits, only two of which came in one innings. In four innings they didn't get a scratch. There was some grousing on the part of somo of the fans over the ten cent grandstand charge. It cost tho locals a ?G0 guarantee to bring Cards-ton here. The gate receipts were 563.25. Balls for the game cost $4.50 and His Umps a five spot. The grand stand charge was sufficient to covor these expenses and leave the club $13.45 to cover all other expenses. The box score: DEFINED. "Pa, what Is temperament?"
