Late In Starting 'As usual the teams were. late In taking the. field, and wnen Ltej 'the wind was blowing strongly; from the south. The Overseas with tbelr xisual good luck won the toss and sent the Cullies to Play against tte wind. la the initial stages of play there was to catch the eye of the soccer .beyond an excellent at- tempt on the part of Brennan of the fieas to 'heat the Callie goalkeeper, the hall going yards wide JioweVer. Neither team seemed to play as well it did on tho former occanion when both failed to get a decision. The spoiled the game entirely and e ball continually blowing into keeper should have saved. Half-time ended with the score In favor of the Seas by one goal. On resuming the Callies, with the wind in their favor began to press on the goal sad sfter a "erles of attacks, Lining shot a. magnificent goal, putting his team on even terms The crowd sent up a deafening roar and the Callies bom- barded the Overseas goal, but they could not score. Parker obtained pos- session of the ball in mid field and Initiated a, run on his own account which culminated in him scoring the second goal for his team. Sumner of the Seas a few minutes later just suc- ceeded in holding a dangerous shot sent in by the Callies. Towards the call of time Huttoa of the Seas re- ceived a bad crack over'the eye which compelled him to retire. It looked for a time as if tha Callies would tie the score, but they were doomed to dis- appointment as the game ended in favor of the Overseas by two goals AQUATIC MEETING There will be a meeting of the L.A.A. on Monday next at S.30 p.m. As matters of im- portance will come up for dis- cussltfl, a lull, attendance of members Is requested.

GAMES IN THE BIG LEAGUES National FOOTgALL Remarks on the "Slavordale" NOTES ON THE GAME (By "Stavordale" Contrary to expectations, tbo gamo between tho Callies and Overseas !u Iho replayed Scctt Cup final, was not at all a good exhibition of soccer. The strong wind was, of course, responsi- ble, and It was a pity, for with Uio elements normal, both teams would certainly have given a much bettor display. But wo have to take thoao things' as wo.find them, and lu foot- ball, as in all else, the man who takes advantage of his opportunity wins. This is what tho Overseas did last they won. lie defence men, and Banner- man, played their usual steady game, but Smith in was anything but of The Overseas 'had a mighty Mg advantage 'with the wind in their backs and it helped them lot Both appeared very evenly matched, but the wemed to have the advantage o[ weifht and Parker VM inclined to be over anxious at timeSj but as the game proceeded be improved Tenant of the Calltes took a pet at Sumner, but the ball miood going home. The Seas were not eaiy to keep btck and eventually after working with dossed determination to'wwdj Smith, Park er scoied a soft goal which thg goal- Donor Present!

HURDLE RACE CLOSED FAIR MEET Ranch King was an Easy Winner-Novelty Race Feature Event SUNDAY BELL WON THE LOCAL EVENT Merry Direct Took 2.10 Trot After Battle With Topsy M. The races at the exhibition yester- day were replete with ail the charac- teristics of the average fair closing day. There wns a slim crowd and the races lacked the class of the pre- vious days. Four events were on the card for the afternoon, but the judges ind the fair association saw tit to nclude one of the three events sched- uled to take place in the evening and conclude the meet, it being evident that the evening crowd would bo too slim to warrant putting the evening events on. The local harness race, deferred from evening before, was also run off. The whole program was completed by 5 o'clock. The 2.15 pace or 2.10 trot for a purse of 5300 was won by Merry Direct. It took live heats to declare n winner, Topsy M. and Merry Direct, the favorite, fighting it out for first money. These horses put up a tight exhibition but Merry Direct was easily the best horse of the two. In the ttrst heat Topsy M. beat Merry Direct un- der the wire, and In the next time out they rau a dead heat, with Leah, the oulv other horse in the race, bringing on the Overseas' goal; but Parker splendid footballer that ho is, lay on hulk of tho'.half-back work fell n Cauldwoll, who wan in brilliant orm, and ho fed hla forwards with judgment and 'precision which mark- d him as a player of class.

New- ark outhit Toronto nearly two to one, the Leafs made their hits at oppor- tune times, and won this afternoon's game, by 5 to 3. Tim Jordin made his thirteenth homer of the season in the third inning, driving in O'Hara ahead of him. Both teams made changes in tiielr line-up: .McMillan, a veteran Callie, was included in 'the halt-back line, but otherwise their team was tho same as last week. Tenuant, how- ever, occupied his usual place at centre, Clark partnering .Mcllveua on tho left wing. "Jock" Mullen and Hnl- kerston were missing iron-, ths Over- seas team, Button and Bannerman taking their places. Slmm au-d Joyco were again together on the left, while Brennan played outside right to Thompson, with Parker In tlio centre Both forward lines were much improv ed over last week, particularly the Overseas. Parker last night had all the room he wanted, and nindo decid- ed use of all his opportunities. In fact, the ex-S. 0. E. man was quite tho hero of the game, and it is not doing too much to say that he won the game for tho 'Seas. He scored both their goals. The first one was the result of a corn-bin ed Overseas eKort in the first half when they bad the strong wind In their favor. But the second was en tlrely an unassisted effort on Park er's part. Aided by the wind, the Caledonians were lying well down Bill Found a Billet Montreal, Aug. ror, combined with Corcoran's muff in the fifth, kept the Baltimore pitch- er from shutting out 'the locals today. The 'batting feature was Murphy's home run in the seventh, the ball' travelling high in the air to the left field fence, and lodging securely wedg- ed between some rotten planks of one of the sign boards adorning 'St Catherine street U1, the rear. The next three, heats were won by Merry Direct, her rival putting up a battle in all but the last go, when the winner led the way un- hampered. The best time was 2.20. Pony Race The second event was a half-mile pony race for a purse of ?100. Five started. Horie romped home a win- ner, followed by Eunice. Madge and Cantata; Pet'bolted into the paddock right from the post. Five Furlongs The third event, a running race of live furlongs' for a purse of ?300, was won by Cunningham at 2% to 1, who le-d'all theiwaj.'' Swagerlater, the fav- orite nt 2 to 5, ran second, beating out Alberta Boy rounding the turn into the stretch, and finishing close to the winner. Alberta Boy finished a good third arid well up. Novelty Lady Rennslaer was tho first home in the one mile novelty and led at the three-quarter, post, while Warfare showed the way'at the half. Warfare was conceded by the books for the and -went to the post at the pro- bitive price of 2 to 5. Serveta and Icker were 3 to 2 and .Lady Renn- aer even money. For the three- larter post Slicker went at 3 to 1, rarfare 3 to 10 and Lady Rennslaer same price; Serveta was doubtful the fringe of the cro'wd, knowing ful well that the Overseas' only hope wa: to get away with the 'ball, and trus to speed to overcome the Scotch de fence.

He is, with- out any question, the best goalkeeper n the city, and has given his team excellent servlco this season. The Callies went down to defeat like the good sportsmen ari. Every man of them played for all ha was worth, right1 up to the last min- ute, and there was not a weak spot in the ieam. .Mcllvena improved im- mensely on his display of the previous week, and McMillen was in the game all the time, and stayed with It up 'to the end. Johnny Huston's booting was ineffective, owing to the wind, but Bannerman, his partner, played finely. Glenn was not so good as us- ual, and Bill whyte did not put tho life Into his play that he usually does. Tennant tried all he knew to put his team In front, and employed every subterfuge in his repertoire to do so, but all lu vain.
