The Eskimos took three games from Lethbridge this afternoon. The managers of the two teams agreed to play five inning games. Dell pitched the first two games, allowing only one hit, striking out seventeen, men and passing only one. Hickey pitched the third, allow- ing only three hits. Edmonton played errorless tall throughout the 'three games. (First Game) AB R O'Hayer, Miller, Averv. Baxter, lb 2 Morse, ss 3 Lussi. cf 2 Cox, rf 1 Spencer, c 2 Brennan, 3b 1 Walters, 2b 2 Dell, p 1 all, says a Boston baseball writer. We see him every day away out in center, field, making difficult fly balls look easy, running like a greyhound into the right fielder's or left fielder's territory, sprinting up 'behind second base and covering an immense amount of territory and' we see him at the plate swinging his bat nonchalantly, eyeing the pitcher like a hawk and waiting for him to send up the kind of ball he is waiting for; -but the public never gets very -close to a ball player knows wiiat kind of a man he really is. Tris Speaker is a Texan. How did he come by that name of Tris? I asked him the question one 'day. "Oh, I don't he replied; "they just called me that." Speaker is 28 years old, weighs 180 pounds and stands 5 feet 11 high.'He has the rough complexion of one who has spent most of his life in the open air. He has heavy, muddy, bloodshot eyes, not the kind one would imagine could pick out a good ball and paste It to the far corner of the field, or could start after the iball at the crack and judge to an inch wiiere that ball is going to land. He has a voice like rumbling thunder, and his softest words sound like the growl of a mas- tiff. He has large, powerful hands, ireckied. Speaker lives in winter in Hubbard 'City, Texas, which is not a city at all, but a small post village near Dallas, having a population of 894 in -summer and 895 when Speaker is there. He goes back home at the close of the season and spends the first! few weeks hunting and then turns his hand to cattle industry. He is a reg- ular Texas cowboy in the saddle, and can -do as much with a horse as he can with a baseball bat is only a boy in actions. Trifling things amuse him. He cares nothing for books, and as for newspa- pers he simply glances at the Red' Sox to see if the reporters have giv- en credit to all the base hits he made, j Walters, 2b He wants to ibe out of doors all the j time.

Lethbridge 1; time 50 minutes; um- Recently he bought an automobile I pire Smith. and next winter it will the only! car in Hubbard City, Texas. He has j learned the mechanism of the machine and now spends his mornings speed- ing on the suburban roads. And doubt- less this same automobile has affect- ed his batting eye. No one can. guide an automobile for 20 miles without returning with a kind of squint in the eyes. So it is with -Speaker. It is a good bet that he will Jbat better on the western trip than he has on the home grounds recently. Hans Wagner, of the Pittsourg club, who owns and operated an automobile had to riding in it because ISs batting fell off to nothing. Since tten he has picked up wonderfully. Speaker could easily bat for .400 if he wotfcl leave the automobile alone. (Third Game) AB R P. 0. GARAGE BBOWNE- COSMAIs1 CO. Five Stalls, with lockers, etc. Rates reasonable.

Winnipeg -Maroons bid the Regina Wanderers farewell taking "the last game of the-season with them by the count of three to two after ten innings' of the closest play seen here 'this year.

Syfert twirled good ball. -Winnipeg has won 24 out of the last 27 games played. BERRY PiCK-ERS TAKE ONE FROM COWiPUNCHERS Calgary, Aug. took the first of a double (header today from Calgary by the score of 4 to 2. Pad- dock twirled for the locals and had the game cincned until 'the seventh, when he weakened and allowed four to cross the plate. He allowed three hits, passed one and hit two. Dunn pitch- ed good ball for Saskatoon, giving the locals only six safeties. Clynes biffed a three-bagger, which Droved to be the feature. DEERFOOT PUT UP A GREAT RACE AGAINST MARSH Englishman Beat the Indian by Lap and a Half Large Crowd Admired the Red Man's Showing Fair Time Made John D. Marsh demonstrated to a large crowd last evening at the ball park in his 12-mile race with Deer- foot, that he is a runner of class. His style and judgment 01 his opponent whom he beat by a lap and a haH bore ample evidence of the fact. Mike Deerfoot, or Mike Mountain, he is generally known, was a huge surprise to the onlookers. Al- though Marsh, apparently did tend himself, Deerfoot made, himself an opponent worthy ol the most ser- ious kind of consideration at times, and it was not until the tenth mile had been travelled -that the 15-mile champion was sure of winning.." At that stage he pulled to the front and soon, distanced the Indian, before long completing a lap in 'advance. He .then again forged to the front but the Redman was close on. Ms heels, and although Marsh set ,ofi at a kill- everything being considered, it may be rated as very fair. It was 1 hr. 1G ruin. 5-i sec. The track was not over smooth and high altitude is in- imical to speed. The first mile saw the runners go- ing even at a 5-5 gait. The second mile they were still shoulder to. shoulder, alternating in the lead and going the same rate as at the start. In the third Deerfoot went to the front and finished the mile 20 seconds ahead of Marsh. The. next raile the Indian was overhauled, Marsh, pass- ing the mile-post 3 seconds in the lead. He was ahead in the fifth by two seconds and at half the distance seconds. in "the seventh mile show- ed Marsh a, clean pair of heels by nearly a quarter of a lap, and in the eighth, increased it to well night a half. Marsh then commenqed to stoke IT WOULD PAY YOU TO PACK A TRUNK. with nothing else but bats, balls, rackets, clubs, fishing tackle, etc., to take along on the family vaca- tion.
