ALL SET FOR BOXING Ross and Norway Boy Express Confidence-First Bout At 11 o'Clock RUSSELL-MILLER TO MIX Second Match of Week Will Find Rutledge Opposed to the Crescents Tonight's big ball gamo will see Lethbridge and Taber tho opponents at Eekstorm park. The game will start at 6.15 sharp. Hutlodgc will make his second appearance In the box before a Lethbridge crowd, pitching for the locals. Just who will oppose him is not known but Taber is coming up strong. Tomorrow night will bring Turin to the city, and Damon Noble will likely be the pitcher. Lethbridge has played a tie and a win with Turin so far this year. On Friday night tho biggest game of the year will be staged when Vulcan and Lethbridge come together. This will he the first opportunity to see this team in action. They have been going great guns of late. Lethbridge will bo strengthened for the game. On Saturday night Coaldale will be here to wind up the series. Good deeds can speak for themselves when thoy call for improved real estate. "I expect to have no trouble in disposing of the big fellow from Many-berries. I have met both Fred Fulton and Joe Bond, both bigger and more clever than he, and I know how to handle myself when 1 am up against a bigger fellow. I don't think tho match will, go ten rounds. My infighting will stop him." So says Young Al. Ross, who is ready to go the distance if necessary. > "Just turn him into the ring. My friends have their wads on me and 1 am not going to disappoint, them. I have made better men than Ross quit inside the ten round Unlit.. I am in the best shape of my fighting career." And that's the way the Norway Boy views the fight which will draw hundreds of city fans and stampede visitors to the ringside at the Majestic theatre tomorrow morning at 11 o'clock. There is going to be the biggest crowd in the history of tho city at the big bout tomorrow morning between Young Ross and the Norway Boy when the light heavyweight championship of Canada will he the title under discussion. Followers of the game know both men are in the pink, and they have every expectancy of seeing tho mill of the year. Those who saw Ross and Durable Ike Cohen in the ring last winter couldn't be kept away from the match on a bet. They expect to see more action tomorrow for a great deal more hangs on the result. As the Old Boy Says: "The demand for Promoter "y Blunt Cigars is steadily growing. To quote the breakfast food chap, 'this is susceptible of explanation.'" (The 3-for-a-quarter Cigar) S. DAVIS & SONS, LIMITED, MONTREAL. Heavy sidebots have already been posted. As for the preliminaries, it Is only necessary to state that Andy Russell, welterweight champion of Alberta, and Benny Miller, welterweight champion of Ontario, will be In the ring for a six round go. These boys have never been up against one another before, and if they deliver the goods they will be back for a ten round bout, likely on Labor Day. Al. Hoselton is expected to be in the city today from Manyherries, and if he is he will be tho third man in the ring. If not there will be other men available. There need bo no fear that the match will not be handled properly. The six-round bout will start sharp at 11 o'clock. .This should bring the main bout on at 11.30 sharp, and it will be all over by 12.10 if it goes ten rounds, thus giving everyone a chance to get to the stampodo in plenty of time.

A DASHING SPORTSMAN WAS GEN. BROADWOOD "Tho death of General Broa^wood (s a distinct loss to the army 'and to (he country," writes "Diarist," in the Westminster Gazatte, "for ho was a man of great and varied abilities. He was something more than a dashing cavalry captain and an ardent sportsman," Mr. ,1. Saxon Mills tells me. "I remember how surprised I was when lie informed me that he had once been undecided whether to Join tho army or become a professional Jockey. He was certainly a great horseman, but his strong literary and philosophical tastes seemed rather incongruous with professional jockeyship, He was a great render. I remember once visiting him at the hospital at Wynberg and finding his bed encumbered with the works of Herbert Spencer and other by no means light literature. He took tho deepest interest in all the political and scientific thought of the day, and was unmistakably a Liberal In his views."
