Second Harrisburg (Providence Smith and Hcckinger A few Callies' supporters thought before the game that the Scots might slip it over North Lethbridge last night by an off chance, but the gen- eral opinion favored the North side eleven to win without much trouble North Lethbridse won, 'but not will ease. This the score indicates. The youngsters, who for the most part compose the Callies line-up, made il interesting for the blue shirts, and kept the issue in doubt until the end. North iLethbridge nut up the strong er appearance, and certainly the besl eleven won, even though the lone goal ot the match was a questionable one. The score came in tbe second half Holberton kicked toward the Caliie goal. Gurr, who occupied offside ter rltory, was struck with the. bail il Its progress. The ball rebounded of G.urr, and Holberton shot it again this time into the net. The Caliie claimed an offside, but as Gurr dii 2 not voluntarily contribute to the scoi of the goal, an offside was not al lowed. The result of tbe match ties u] the Son? ami Uniteds, and necessi tales a play-off for the champlonshi] next Thursday evening.

To' Davis is coming coi siderable credit for the showing o the Callies against a mighty stron; aggregation.

Take Your Pick The figures show that the Ameri- can league base-runners this season are nearly 50 per cent, better than their rivals in the National. The American leaguers have stolen S32 bases, against ,669 for the Nation- s. These figures, incidentally, bring up a rather" interesting question. Is it that the catchers in the National are better, or is it true that thqir base-runners are really slower? Experts who -have timed the vari- ous runners declare the National lea- gue has more fast nien than the Am- eri Lace or Button, Black or Tan, Sizes 4, 4 K, K., K only Fathers and mothers who want a good and dressy shoe for their boys will do well to call early, as stock is limited and will not last long at the price This is also a rare opportunity to men, who can find their shoe in sizes named, to get a Fiorsheim Shoe at Half Price Oliver Block Fifth Street i line of fire that carried the fight in o the North Lethbridge territory, ind more than made it interesting or the blue shirts. However, the steady defence of the North siders prevailed against the most determin- ed onslaught, and proved impregnable .ill the end. NOTES OF THE GAME The North Lethbridge defence was strong when' the trying times came. Hewitt was called upon to save only a few shots and he executed them well. i The young blood that the Callies have instituted in their team is very promising. With a couple of more years' experience, oUi fans say, they will make., a good team. Dunlop was kept busy enough and displayed classy form. His work in goal was big league stuff and his many brilliant saves'were responsible for the low score. The-combination work of .-the N. :L IL was good, and the forward line was kept busy running down field. F. Simm and Tennant and A. Gurr fig- ured prominently in the playing. Jack Davis, the soldier boy, play- ing left back for the Callies, had in him Ihe stuff that resembled the old Mclntyrc, liaston, Bannerman trio. Jack spoilt many chances for scor- ing and was always there. 'Joncsy1, playing outside right lor the Callies in the second half, show- ed up well. Features of his playing were the pretty shots that he drop- ped in front of the N. L. goal from the outside. The spectators for the most part were tickled to see the junior player circle around Holberton with'the ball. The North Lethbridge players hac 1 in weight am it on the1 Callies height. ...On one or two 'occasions RARE SERVICE FOOLED McLQUGHLIN BUT HE 'WON MATCH EASILY Seabright, N. J., Aug. E.

Days of Real .Fighters A different crop of fighters were 'harvested in the old days. In these days tbe first consideration of a fight- er is the dollar. In the past the thought was money. Many years ago, Jack Dempsey fought" Jack Fogarty with skin-tight gloves in the woods near New York City. The fight was for a side bet and a purse, winner to take all. Fogarty put up a wonderful fight, but in the 27th round Dempsey shot a terrific right swing to Fogarty's jaw, and the latter went down for the- count. When Fogarty revived he saw sev- eral spectators passing the hat. "Why are-they doing he asked, through his bleeding, swol. len lips. "They're collection for was the answer.
