Ross is well known to local fans. They know his style and his hitting powerB. They know very little about the Norway Boy, except that from the reports the local mitt manipulator has his work cut out for him. In fact, there are those in the city who have some simoleons to say that Ross has more than his work cut out for him. Quite a lot of money Is being posted to ,say that Ross will not get the decision. Ross is as confident as can be that he will come out an easy winner. The Foremost line fans are coming in with money in their jeans to back up their own favorite. Definite news of the preliminaries will be received today. They are likely to bring together Andy Russell of Calgary and Miller, the Ontario welterweight champion, in a six-round mill. Russell is a great favorite here and his appearance in the ring would be a welcome addition to the program. L. S. S. WON Tonight, the first game of the special stampede week baseball series will bo staged at Eckstorm Park at fi.15 when Magrath will play its first game of the year here. Lethbridgo will go up against Lefty Lang, who has been pitching great bail for the Garden City team. It is quite likely that Roger Lund will be back in uniform with the. locals. Lund hasn't pitched a game for Lethbridge for a long time, but his arm has not lost its cunning as shown by the fact that, pitching for Raymond he defeated the Taber team the other evening in an 11-in-ning game. Just who will play tomorrow evening is not known, but an effort will be made to bring iri" Raymond. If not Turin or Coaldale may be secured. On Wednesday night Taber is booked to play the locals. Thursday evening's opponents have not been lined up as yet, but on Friday evening the rejuvenated Vulcan team with Emory Webb on the mound will be the offering. For Saturday evening an effort will be made to get another of the fast Aldorside lino teams. There is going to be plenty of baseball this week and no mistake. Livingston and Murphy are out of the line-up for the rest of the season, but there will be no dearth of material for the big games of the week.

MACLEOD FAIR BEST EVER HELD E With District Ball Teams The Life-Saving ' Scouts of Loth-bridge played their second baseball match of this season with the United Sunday school team of North Ward, tho score being 1G to 15 in favor of the Scouts. The game was well contested from start to finish, lasting six innings. In the first innings the score was 4 to 2, in favor of N. W. In tho second innings G to 6. In the fifth the score was 1G to 12. In the final in-terminating at 1G to was a.5 follows: Scouts nings the result 15. The line-up N. W. Tambor Gryst Lakie Chapelow Jackson Walton Gant Ifedenstrom Hndley Wostley S. Holt Archibald D. Holt Clappon Coffoo Scott Joyce Payne The pitchers on both teams held the men down in good order, and bases on balls were infrequent. The hitting was good on both teams, especially | among tho older players, as each toam ! had some new men on. The decisions given by the umpire wore fair for both teams, although in some instances were surely criticized, but such is the lot of the umpire. We look for- some interesting work by these teams before^ tho close of the season. THE OPPOSITE NOT TRUE "It's a queer world." "What now?" "The more money a man has the more he wants." "Well?" "But you can't always Bay that tho less money a man had' the Idea he wants." THAT RAYMOND-TABER GAME Raymond defeated Taber at Taber Wednesday night in a hard-fought eleven-Inning battle with the final score 8 to 7. Taber was dangerous only in one inning in which they scored five runs on two bases on balls three errors and a hit batter. Tlaymond came back in the fourth with two runs nncl three in the fifth. Raymond scored two in the j 6th and Taber one, tieing the score. j From then on it was a pitchers' battle ; between Lund and Toddhunter. ' Lund used his spitter for the first time this year, and from the third inning had tho batters from Tabor going down in one, two, three order. In tho oleventh Naldor drove out a cloan single, stole second, was sacrificed to third and wont home on a passed ball. The next two batters grounded out. In Taber's half of the eleventh Lund struck out the first man up, the second flow out to center. Lund struck out tho (bird batter after having three balls and no strikes on him.

On his return home she questioned him as to how he had behaved. "Well, mamma," he said, "I gat along very woll until the meat came, but while I was trying to cut mine it slipped off on the floor. But I made it all right, mamma." "What did you do?" "Oh, I Just said sort of carelessly, 'That's always the way with tough meat.'" INGENIOUS "Your wife is very ingenious." "I should say so. It seems to she finds a new place to hide dress shirt studs every time." me my R. II.E. 110 2 2 0 1 1 0 1 0 0 1 (From Our Own Correspondent) Macleotl, Aug. 12. - Fair week in Macleod was the greatest in the history of the town, as for crowds and exhibits. Early Thursday morning the people began to gather, coming in cars from a distance, and when the hour | for opening arrived the number of ticket sellers were doubled in order to accommodate tho number of people. The live stock exhibit was not excelled by any fairs held so far this year, while the dairy products were tho best ever seen in Southern Alberta. Vegetables were particularly fine, none being tully grown, but all gave promise ot a great crop to be gathered this year. Grain was excellent, and many varietios were on exhibition, and from this exhibit we received information that the yield of this district will reach the average of 20 bushels. Poultry was good, the judges finding it very difficult to make decisions. The class of poultry Is much improved over previous years. On the whole the officials are pleased with the results, as their indebtedness will be reduced when the fair returns are all in. The Red Cross ladies served tea each day. This work was much appreciated by the crowds, but on the last day they had to close up on account of running short of provisions. Their treasury is strengthened to the extent of a few hundred dollars. The provincial police are very proud of this dry Alberta, as at all the fairs held recently, no arrests wore made, and no drunkenness was seen. Another proof of the vnluo of prohibition was seen in Macleod during the fair, the large number of motor cars. One man said it cost him less to buy and run mi automobile than to come to town with his horses, before prohibition, and pay his way, as tho amount spent in buying- drinks exceeded the upkeep of hia car. (Special to the Herald) Macleod, Aug. 13.-On Tuesday evening while Mr. and Mrs. A. Young were talking with friends on their lawn, John, youngest son, fivo years of age, went upstairs and out on the balcony, there he found a small ladder which he was able to stand up, afterwards climbing on tho roof where be found a roof ladder. Proud of his achievements, he saw a higher point from whero he would be able to view the country. He tried to reach this point, but in some way missed his hold and fell to the ground near the friends, about 50 feet. He was picked and carried to his bed as if dead. On tho arrival of the doctor ho could find nothing wrong with him, and a few hours later the boy awoke and asked why they had him in bed so early. Ho is now up and around as if nothing had happened and tells when the hour j his mother that next time he will reach the highest point of the roof of the house. "Were there any witnesses present when the defendant proposed marriage to you?" "Only the eternal stars." "Well, there's no use, to subpoena them." Notice to Creditors Claimants and Almost a serious accident on Saturday came to Frank Thompson, who waB standing on 24th street, and seeing one of his young lady friends going to crank a car, he did it for her. He started the car quickly and it jumped forward pinning Mr. Thompson against a telephone pole and injuring him so that he was taken to the hospital where he still remains. The delegation to tho big convention in Winnipeg returned Saturday. The local member, G. Skelding, D. Gil-len, W. J. Muldoon and A. F. Grady. They will report at a meeting next week. Mr. and Mrs Eaker have returned from visiting friends in Lethbrldge. W. J. Markle, inspector of Inrt'an agencies passed through Macleod c.n his way home after inspecting the Piogan and Blood reserves. Ho reports the crops of grain on these reserves as fair and looks for an average of 18 bushels. Rev. W. A.
