Lethbridge people know the brand of ball .the Warner team can put up; their team has been seen in action many times in the past: The famous tierg and Lnker battery is a Idrawing card in itself. North of tho city the little towns have been'falling over themselves to produce winning combinations and Champion, Stavely, Nantou, Travers and'dther burgs have winners. Tire other day Warner journeyed to Champion and took the measure of the squad of that budding city by a score of 6 to 5. There were six dou- Me plays pulled off during the Warner annexing four of them and saving a possible defeat. This shows the brand of stuff the teams have. As it is meet that the championship of Southern Alberta should be decided, the -teams got together and picked on Lethbridge as neutral ground for the encounter. Wednesday afternoon next Is a half holiday and Lethbridge fans and fanettes are just dying to see a good game. It's a good bet, too, that half the south country will be in for the clash. Carmangay, Travers, Lo- mond, Vulcan, Nanton and Stavely an sure to send along large delegations of bugs for the doings, while Champion and Warner will each have their root- ing squads to cheer their teams to victory.'.- i B. Downing will handle the indica- tor, and. the opposing teams can be as- sured of a square deal in that depart- ment. BASEBALL SCORES NATIONAL Brooklyn Boston....... Philadelphia New York.....
