ARE COMING HOME TO OFFER WILLARD Miss Winifred O'SulIivan, fiancee of the late Les Darcy, has written Miss Lily Molloy, of Australia, who is visiting in San Francisco, the following graphic, account of tho ceremonies and funeral of Darcy at Sydney and Maitland. "All poor Les' family, excepting his mother, was down to meet the boat, |and Oh, God, If I live to bo a hundred jl will never forget the scene," writes Miss O'SulIivan. "It made your heart ache. They all adored the very ground he walked on, and no wonder; ho was a son and a brother in a million. "They took the body to Wood Cof-fil's parlors, where over 100,000 persons went to see it. Tho police could not cope with the crowd. As far New York, Aug. 18. - Apparently j down as George street, as far as one there was real foundation for the re-1 could see, were throngs of people cent report that Joss Willard was , waiting their turn-stood there for preparing to re-enter the ring; that hours waiting to got in. he had his eye on the winner of the Even Priest Breaks Down Fred Fulton-Carl Morris bout as a I "From tiie parlors the body was prospective opponent.

S. DAVIS not regard a bout with either Fulton or Morris as a serious risk, He is confident that ho can boat any of the present crop of heavyweight challengers. His recent two-round exhibition at Platts-burg against Soldier Ke'arns proved that ho Is in much better physical condition than many wero prone to believe. He permitted Kearns to pound away at his body just to show the soldiers at tho training camp that hia body is practically as strong as it ever was, that he has not gone back very far from the time when he fought Frank Morau at Madison Square Gar-t Jen iu this city. From early morning streams of people could bo seen passing with lunch hampers going to the cemetery to wait until afternoon. "Everybody loved poor Les, and, as the priest said over his grave.

Princeton and Harvard, recognized as the leaders ln football, have suspended activities on the gridiron for tho duration of the war, has set the devotees of the game to thinking. The universal Question of those Interested in the matter is: What ultimate offoct will this have on tho sport pursued by the smaller colleges? Is football to die until after the war or will those who have the sport's interest at heart bring strong enough prossuro to bear for its conservation? Action by tho "Big Three" In cancelling their schedules is patriotic in-doed; it is true, J�ut there is probably some practical method obtainable which will give the young collegian a chance to Indulge in his" favorite autumn' sport. Football should not be allowed to die a natural death when means can be adopted for its preservation. It is part of every college man's life, and without its moral and physical eltecl" h'e will suffer. (continuicd iwom Fjiont Pacie) In 1912 Mr. Jamieson came from Nova Scotia to Medicine Hat, Alia., and there established the Morning Times, acting as editor of the paper and as director of the company of which ho was a large stock holder. Ho severed his connection with this paper in 1014 with the idea of going to Montreal as eastern representative of Stoner, Lockwood and Wheeler of Minneapolis and Redcliff. The outbreak of the war, however, caused a change of plans. On the formation of the Dominion constituency of Medicine Hat in 1014, and upon a Conservative nominating convention being held in that year, the name of Mr. Jamieson was placed before tho convention and although tho nomination ultimately went to Mr. Nelson Spencer by a narrow margin of vote, most enthusiastic support was accorded Mr. Jamles-son particularly by delegates from the city of Medicine Hat and other centres of population where ho was best known. Mr. Jamieson shortly afterwards decided to re-enter the legal profession, and upon considering his qualifications the law society of Alberta required that he should put in a short period of study under a barrister of this province and that he should pass two examinations. He then came to Lethbridge and entered the office of Mr. Charles F. Harris. In the recant examinations of tho law society Mr. Jamieson passed his finals with high marks, taking third place on tho list for the province, and his time of service having boen satisfactorily fulfilled, his admission to the bar has followed as a matter of course. Since coming to Lethbridge Mr. Jamioson has made many friends who will be glad to hear that ho has decided to make this city his permanent residence. As a journalist ho enjoyed a wide reputation as a fair-minded but extremely, vigorous writer, In politics he won tho esteem of his opponents by his broad mindedness and tolerance. Of a studious and somewhat retiring disposition, Mr. Jamieson is seldom heard on the public platform, but he Is generally regarded as oho of the best public speakers we havo in tho west. Corfu, Aug. 20.-One-quarter of the Servian city of Monastlr, has been destroyed by fire caused by a Bulgarian bombardment, the Servian press announces. The number of victims has not been ascertained.

Women and children who fled in all directions have been collected and taken to the rear.

JIM CALLAHAN HAD HARD TASK Action of Hugo Bezdek Show* What Pirate Bom Was Up Against New York, Aug. 18.-When Hugo Bezdek, new manager of the Pirates, suspended Al Mamaux he gave partial vindication, at ietist, of the measures taken by Jimmy Callahan to put something into the Pittsburg club. Callahan was pillored extensively for disciplining the temperamental star. It was declared Callahan didn't know how to handle Mamaux and that George Gibson, now with the Giants, was tho only man who could get any work out of the youngster. It,ls being directly charged now that Mamaux Is and has been playing for his release. He is not trying to win, it is stated, because he figures he eventually will be transferred to some other club, preferably the Giants. Evidently there is no chance of such a transfer, for John McQraw recently went out and pulled off a trade for Al Demaree, adding & mediocre righthander to his staff. If he could have obtained Mamaux be doubtless would have dono so.
