Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 28, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta round*, UrM iiiglUiika.�ta. air, the representative o(L-thB. considered perfect by experts. T1}W'grain was plant ed and the resuttiag igraifi saved for rthe next year. Oije huTidred grains wete planled 10 in'aj^row, 10 rows to the plot* pi �pcriinent' g^^ the ^ear .aft�r,lllrom the^ first yield. The best .of the.'jgrain was replanted each successive 'seueon, until now the 10 acre field shows yields of from 40 to 65 bushels an acre. "We hardly dare tell the public about this ritarvellbiis yield,." said-Prof; Crossley, "because even the farmers .iron't believerit. But down; in Mahaeka county j let a farmer have a sack of our new ^ain to use, and his yield was eWrmous, too." , The average grain; of'wheat will produiee]30Q to 600 grains on the stalk. 80 each time a grain is dropped in the soil at the college here it means 600 times iis much gobd to other farmers as it meant the first time Prof. Crossley began to experiment. AH the yield will be distributed among farmers. Bo pleased was Secretary Wilaon with results that the government- is [Tiow paying half the expense of opn-tinuing the experiments. W A.

He muat stop that sort of playing or he will have tc quit the.'gami^. Steps will be taken to overcome the possibilities of spiking- players. Jfust what action will bp talkn I am unable to state, but chances are that the players will be made to wear shorter spikes than before." TWOGAMESAT tflE HAT YESTERDAY Lethbridge Lost the First and Tied the Second Kaabit.; Mtel^., Aug. 2T:-'Ty" Cobb;' the star outfielder of the local American League team, positively denied today that he or any other members of the Detroit team have attempted to spike ^Isiyers on opposing teams. After reading the statement of President Bah Johnson, that he, Cobb, must stop spiking players or quit the game] Cobb said: "I have 'never attempted to spike another player, and I deny positively the charge that I have employed dirty Unities. � Of course. I run the base;^ hard, and slide hard, but the base lines by every 'rule of baseball, belong to the runner, and if the baseman chooses deliberately to get in the path and try to block tiie runner off. he does'so at his own pe'nl. I did not inalitriottsly spike Tliird' Baseman Baker, of the' Philadelphia team. I slid into third base and he was on the line. "The umpires whom President Johnson hires, have' Ken me every I'timel have,slid into a base, and the ba^emsnhli's been hurt. II I have munferously and deliberately .tried to putiaay of dieee men out of the game ^1^/ ^aye not the (imlpiires reported niie^-LTher luww perfectly well that theie;lha4 been no effort on my part to injure other players."

In the eigiith the (Miners hid a chance to tie up the game, as Pieh and Joe Corriaan got down an errors and made second and third in another heat. Chesty came through with a hit and scored Pieh, but infield outa retired tlie liext three men. For tlie Miners, Pieh was the offer-ing on,the ^lab. After he had walked ojie and had been touched for a three bagger and a single and-hit another, Ke Went to left field, Qqi coming in to third and McGarry going into the box. .As the summary shows he was hit hard but the ,sliaug!liter did not come until tlie eighth when Harper led off wjth a thcee bagger. Two errors, a squ'ecite play and three hits resulted in four rims being tallied. Up to this point the game was a most exciting one.

At^'Butkd , Profeeaional h^aeball in Lethbridge Ik a:, thing of the. paat/but baseball still livee. The employes of the O. Dnadheer Co. and H^ck Hardware Co. met last night on the local diamond to vent their haa^ball enthusiasm and put up, a pretty crediUble gainetftoo. The pltohlng: was not of thealyle oLLeiie and McNeill, and conaequentlf there was some heavy !battiiig;;^(|Dne on both sides. The Bradbeer Co. boys, however, aiH>ar-ently had their opponents outclassed as they started in with i big lead, and closed with a much bigger lead; Wedd. the pitcher of the Bradbeer jteam, in^e, the only home run of the''game vlanding a long fly along th�f^flrat' hue line. The play was al-ma�t duplieiited by Mahoney of the opposing team but Mahoney got out at the home plate. Sixteen to eight was a rather big lead for the victors but the Hick boys are not by any; means disoouraged and informec' the Herald last night that they are pre^ pared, to play any firm in the city at football, lacrosse and baseball. The following was the line up: Htck Hardware Co.: Spence. Orice. Shover, Mahoney, Watson, Taylor, Dickson, McGuire and Robinson. Bradbeer Co.: McBeth, B. McKay, Bradbeer, Murray, Posthill, Oeyer. R.

The game was a hard fought one all through for while Campbell was hit more often than McNeill, he passed t^wer men and struck out eight to "Tacks" two. Chesty Cox was the hero of the game, his two singles being- clean, hard hits, and his fleld-ive of bip league character. In the fourth he captured a fly in foul territory behind third base and got one off the very next batter in behind second; With errorless play on both sides the score would have been a oue-one tie, each tpam earning but a single run.
