Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 14, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta 6ESIX THE LETHBRIDGE DA1I.T HERALD WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14,1918 3- 'BRINGING UP FATHER' By G. McMahus \*^"THE SCENERY TOO SHOULD T^KE ^ fiOLF CLUBS OWN THEIR RAILROADS �Two Chicago Organizations Op' crate Electric Trains to the Links j ChicaKO. Aug. 14.-Two golf clubs in the suburban region of Chicago have private railroads leading to tlieir links, which with their palatial club houses are sequestered far from the ordinary channels of travel. Both private lines use electric power, although the Jlidlothian Country club line formerly employed a small steam locomotive to haul members from a station on the Rock Island line to its club house. Tne other golf railroad is a crosscountry line, running to the Glen-view club from the aristocratic north shore suburbs. It also serves the Westmoreland Country club, where the western open championship was won last year by James Barnes with a record score of 283 strokes for 7? holes. This road, bearing tne pretentious name, North Shore & Western railroad, recently issued. the following notice describing its physical, financial and service status: Four Mllei Long. "Patrons should not ride over this Uno in a spirit of indifference, ennui or nonchalance. It is four miles long, four feet eight and one-half inches wide and has an ambitious name. It also has two standard streaks Of rust covered by an ample mortgage. It has but two paid employes, and its president and manager serve for glory only. It does not pay dividends, but has escaped receivership and government control. It has not escaped any other torment, tax or tribulation. It caters to two golf clubs and one cemetery; incidentally, it serves tlie public. It has a future, great expectations and complacent stockholders. Scenery Listed "You will note, in passing, truck gardens of great fertility, a cemetery rapidly increasing in population and from the zenith of the trestle another standard railroad, no better, but longer than the one over which you are privileged to ride. "Xear the western terminal, after entering the forest preserve, you cross a fork of one of the branches of the Chicago river, which is not very wide, nor yet very deep, but ebbs and flows with rainfall. The terminal itself is immediately adjacent, or rather, conveniently contiguous to the 19th hole of the Glen-view club. "Patrons are particularly reque.5ted not to complain or comment adversely upon the seYvice. We are doing the best we can on nothing a year." BASEBALL RESULTS AMERICAN Won Lost. P.O.

Jack Demp.if>y for thn world'!.- heavyweight ch.irapionship! That's the plum that the farsighted fight promoters will soon be trying to pluck. For Carpenter and Dempsey now shape up as the logical contenders for the world championship. Carpentier is conceded the best across the ocean and until Franco was plunged into war he was regarded as a possible contender for the world championship. Military service of the hardest kind in France, together with occasional bouts in Y. M. C. A. boxing programs in the French camps, have kept him in the best of shape and Carpentier should be oven more dangerjus as a world championship contender after the war. Dempsey Well Thought Of Dempsey has cleaned up his pathway of every other fighter who dared put forth a claim to championship honors-except Jess Willard, the champion who will not fight. The nnar future will answer definitely the riuestion as to whether AVillard and Dempsey will ever meet. The average light fan will Insist on believing that they never will meet; the average fan has no faith in Willard and is ready to concede Dempsey the championship. The prospects� of a bout between Dempsey and Carpentier for the world championship are not bright until after the war. In tact there is probably no chance of such a bout until the war is over. Carpentier ia in active service, has been wounded ,and gone back to active service. He will not be likely to be any world championship planning until his service tor his country is done. He is always ready to give ring exhibitions for the soldiers or tor a war fund, but a bout between Dempsey and Carpentier would be too big a battle to expect either principal to go into It on an exhibition ba.=jis. Dempsey Should Enlist If Dempsey can only be per'juaded to get into the world action In soma way at this time, it should be a grsat boost for an after the war match between the pair. il CHASE GETS CHANCE TO CLEAR HIMSELF Suspended on Charges by Matty That He Was Playing In-difterent Ball Car Conservation Is easily attained if you bring your repair work to us.

"Until than I cannot discuss the matter." EDDIE COLLINS ENUISTS (From Our Own CorresDondent) Barons. Aug. 13.-Harvesting is now general in this district. It is anticipated that summorfallow wheat will run from twenty to thirty bushels to the acre, with a few fields below the twenty mark. Henry Thorssell, west of town, expects thirty bushels and, judging by the appearance of his crop, his estimate is justified. John Myers, on the eastern boundary of the town, flgure.s on a similar yield and several other fields will give equally good returns. Farmers, far from feeling blue over tho result of their efforts this year, have only had their confidence in the district confirmed, as it is considered that a more unfavorable season could scarcely bo experienced; in spite of which good farming methods are giving highly satisfactory returns. There was a considerable area seeded on stubble this year, tho crop on which should have been plowed down a month ago but, owing to the dryness of the soil, this could not bo done. Heavy rains Sunday and yesterday have put tho laud in shape for plowing and this work will now be proceeded with. The area under crop next year will be extensive. Old residents predict lots of rain this fall, a hard winter, a wot summer and a bumper crop. Mrs. A. H. Johnson has returned from Lethbridge, completely recovered from her recent Illness. Mrs. J. H. Welsh has returned from her visit to Olds. Barons ball team travelled to Vulcan on Friday evening and got licked by the professionals of that town by a wide margin. In order to balance their accounts, however, they administered a sound beating to Coalliurst -who were visitors here on Sunday, the final score being something like 10 to 5. Coalhurst played a nice game but they were handicapped by having two or three substitutes on their lineup. Mr. and Mrs: C. W. Hansen and Master Bobby Hanson have returned from ther Vrlp through the north country. They state that they enjoyed every minute of their tour and passed through some good country but nothing to make them think of leaving Barons. The war record of the Hansen family is one to be' proud of. Harold is at present In hospital In England suffering from trench fever and shell shock, having been with the Canadian artillery at the front for some considerable time; John reports to the Royal Air Forces on the 22nd and Darrell (just turned 19) has volunteered for service with the same branch of tho army and awaits his summons to report. These are all the grown-up members of the family. The Rev. Malley is arranging with tho department of extension of Alberta University for the establishment of a library and hopes to have a supply of books in tho rooms at the buck of tho church next week. It is understood that a deal for tho sale to a colony of Mennonites, of tho Chow-GunnIng farm, about thirteen miles east of here, has fallen through^ This is good news to most of ub, aa a colony of these slackers from tho United States could hardly be considered a desirable acquisition, to the district.

Klacea the Jieavj' arWUery which the allies were not able to bring up fast enough to keep pace with their advance. Tho work of those airplanes is so organized that they Iramcdii\toly attack groups of Infantry, convoys and supply trains when they receive signals from reconnoitring, planes. In this their work is very similar to that of tho heavy,artillery In Its co-ordination with the aerial service . Bombarding squadrons are kept ready for instant service at airdromes so that they may take tho air at the Instant a call Is received from ai,gnal planes, troops or convoys in villages or road terminals. This system was employed at Lasslgny the other day. An observing piano reported the town encumbered with troop and supply trains.
