Browne, three times national champion, will go to France as a full-tibdged Red Cross nurse. Miss Browne already has done remarkable work for a worthy cause by attracting crowds to the tennis matches staged for tho purpose of raising $100,000 for an ambulance fund. Instead of devoting the timo be-tweon her strenuous matches to much-needod rest! Miss Browne has boon studying. She is taking a special course to qualify as a nurse.

OTHER CHALLENGES ALSO Just to set the wheels moving to settle a long-standing dispute as tu the best quarter mile horse in this part of Alberta,' De Loss Lund of Raymond dropped into the Herald office yesterday afternoon and issued a deli to all and sundry who have nags that are considered good at that distance. Ho is ready to stake $100 on his "Bud" that it can go the distance and brine home tho bacon against anything that can be brought out, circuit horses excepted. Mis defi is particularly aimed at Hob Hoarnc's "Bahly" and "Grey Dick," As the Old Boy Says : "Why not tonight ? For once in your lifetime enjoy an hour of supreme bliss.

If the ghost of any old M.CO. habitue glided on-Saturday afternoon Into the pavilion, what happened? Can gliosis swoon? Baseball, it may be said forthwith, is a superb evolution of our British game of "rounders." It is partly a game played between iwo "nines" i corresponding to our cricket "elevens"). It is still more a game played owned by i by the two "nines" and crowd against. FULTON STRONG J. Levitt of Cardstpn. The distance is a quarter mile, the, stakes 100 a corner, and each horse is to carry 110 pounds. lie suggests that tho race jbc run on the Lethbridge track on the Saturday afternon of the 15th or 22nd of September. No quarter mile horse will be barred on the above conditions. Incidentally, and to make it a race meet worth while he says ho has another horse that ho will match for a side bet, distance to be half a mile or further. Then he has a pony he will match against anything 14.2 or under. Likewise he is ready to match Lillie Ferguson against any local horse for any distance from five-eighths up to ono mile. And there is a match on between the harness horses, Pathfinder and Rnvencress. Pathfinder is the property of I-". Lucltln of Nobloford and stepped at 2.20 on tho first day of tho Stampede here. Rnvencress stepped second in the heat which was neck and neck. If all these challenges are taken up there will be enough races for a fine card some Saturday afternoon next month, and a big crowd of track fans would be on deck from all parts of the south. Acceptances of the challenges should be made through tho Herald. They will bo published and arrangements made between the various parties as to date, side money, etc. Minnesota Giant Who Meets Carl Morris Monday Picks His Pleasure We Have on Hand every facility for quick and thorough Auto Repair Work No delay here In getting your car ready for service again.

Bijou Motor Parlors THE HOUSE OF SERVICE At last, something new under the sun. A boxer with a temperament (no, not a temper, a temperament). Said boxer is Fred Fulton, Minnesota Giant, Minnesota Plasterer, Ferocious Fred, or whatever othor cognomen you Baseball may wish to hang on him, who is to meet Carl Morris in a 15-round battle at Canton, Labor day. Tho world at largo has always associated temperament with geniuses of all sorts, painters, musicians, prima donnas, sculptor*) and even with thoroughbred horses. But with a boxer, one of that class tho reformers are wont to class as "abysmal brutes," temperament does not seem quite right. Fulton's particular hobby outside tho ring is grand opera., This Bix-foot five-inch 325-pound place of battling machinery likes best to spohd his evenings listening to some fair-voiced singor in roles that have become fathoms, "II Trovatore," "Carmen," "Faust" and other great roles are listed among his favorites. As a relaxation he is partial to a rollicking southern melody, whllo several ot the bettor known popular airs also are liked by him. Noxt to hearing grand opera Fred 11 Ices to danco. Not the many now freak steps that are coming but every day, though most of those are among his repertoire, but a good old fashioned waits or two-step. Given a good partner nud tlie right kind of music, he is content to spend an entire niRlit dancing. . Fulton, however, finds that ho has little time to indulge in dancing, especially when he looks forward to meeting Jess Willurd eventually. IS SEEN AT LORD'S Game on Historic Ground Presents Unwonted Scene to English Writer - Sympathy for "Umpa"-First Aid For Casualties-A Great Game the umpire (who was Mr. Frederic William Wile). It is a stirring, glorious game, incomparably livelier than cricket, for players, for spectators, and above 'all, for the umpire. When, as a friend of the umpire, I was Invited to witness Saturday's baseball game from the unique view point of a position on the turf within a few yards of the batsmen and their toiTilieally "swiping" clubs. I looked at the wire netting that shielded the stands and asked tho umpire my chances of getting hit. Quick and Merciful "Of course you may get, hit," said tho umpire. 'Have you ever seen a baseball travel from the bat? I'll say this-it's quick and merciful-especially if it Rets you in the head." Behind the batsman stands the "catcher." close behind the "catcher" stands the umpire. The umpire and' tho catcher are armored. Tho catcher wears a sort of mattress over his midriff. He needs it-Unlf the bulls that the batsman 1'ail.s to bit are fielded by tho catcher. A baseball crowd thoroughly "rattles" the umpire oven before tho game starts. The umpire stands and smiles (or pretends to smilo) while the megaphones tell him his deplorablo past and his disgraceful future. If he takes off his mask tho "rooters" beg aim to put it on again lest his features provoke bad weather; If he resumes his mask the "rooters" implore him to take it off and 'give the ball a chance." An expert told me that Saturday's umpire was an excellent umpire, just and equitable ns Rhada-manthus, (but it mado no difference. Ho was an umpire-that is enough for a baseball crowd. Another expert sat by me and explained the game, enlivening his discourse by tales of baseball fatalities, of players who have fallen, "record" distances at which spectators have been slain. No one. in tho United States, he said, would he allowed where, we sat-but there, it was at. our own risk, and It would be our own inquest. When a player was struck by a ball and became unconscious my companion became anxious. "There ought to be an otlicial doctor on the. ground." be said. "We always have one it Pittsburg. An official doctor understands baseball casualties. An unofficial doctor might wire in at onco to an operation when there is no need for it." But the player was restored, mainly by other people shouting in his ear with megaphones, anu tho game proceeded. A "Home Run" As Canada's score mounted the roar and din of the "rooters" waxed great or. They were delirious in joy or delirious in anger. Among tho group of players sat a Canadian officer with a megaphone. JSvery time Canada scored the officer lept. up like a ram upon the grass, crying through the megaphone, "Hold mo down! Hold me down!" When six runs had been scored tho crowd sang "One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six" in a crescendo chorus. They repeated the chorus, adding a number each time, until the twelve runs were scored. The climax of hectic excitement was when a "homo run"-right round tho three 80-ft. bases of tho "diamond" was scored. In tho middle of that transcendental uproar the expert from the U.S.A. caught me lighting a pipe. He bogged me to refrain. "It's not cousiderbd dlgultied," ho urged, "to smoke pipes at baseball matches." It was during this climax of enthusiasm that the goat, who had hitherto maintained calmness, ended a war dance by charging his soldier leash-holder. Dasoball is a great game. It Is high time we imported it Into Britain. The after-war "gate money" public will demand something loss staid and pro-swift, bravo and skilled a game as exists. 11 is packed with thrills, It has not. a dull minute. longed than cricket.
