Following a notable stage career she achieved wide prominenco in motion pictures, her characterization of the Countess Zitdora in "The Million Dollar Mystery" being well remembered. Miss Snow makes an ideal ".losic" in "iiroadway Jones," which is now showing nt Rtarland, and it is felt that her portrayal in this subject will prove one of the features of the photoplay. This great feature promises to be one of the funniest and most enjoyable pictures ever shown in the city. � George M. Cohan is undoubtedly at his best in this, the greatest of his productions.

PAPPAS, Owner Calgary, Aug. 20.-Earl Lewis' band of champion warriors stolo a inarch on Kerns' wildcats from Vulcan yesterday afternoon to tho tuno of 6 to I. Tho game was the first of the series for the Alberta championship and purse of $1,000. it was one of tho prettiest games to watch that has boon pulled off in theso parts for many a day, and tho contest was in doubt until Ault, the lust Vulcan batter in the ninth, wont out, Silor to first. The pitchers for tho occasion-Silcr, who twirled for Champion, and Webb, tho strikeout artist of tho Vulcan crew-gave a masterly exhibition of heaving. Siler hud 11 strikeouts to hi;; credit; dud Webb eight. Ault relieved Wobb in tho last of the eighth for Vulcan, and also struck out two batsmen, tho third batter flying out to short. Good in Pinches. Silor, however, appeared best in the pinches, and really won his own game in tho fourth inning, when ho slammed tho pill for a hit over the fence and on top of the car barns at Victoria Park for a cloan home run, sending in n run ahead of him. Tho tall boy was clouting the pill. There wero no real sensational fielding exhibitions, but tho steady all-round playing of Kerns, the brilliant shortstop for the Vulcanites, was the outstanding feature. A large crowd was on hand, and no doubt today, at 3 p.m., on account of the half-holiday, will see a monster crowd in attendance.

A thoroughly consistent, wholly pleasing story is told in "The Whip," the world's biggest motion picture, which will be the attraction :it tho Majestic theatre on Thursday and Friday. The story deals with the intrigue which is wound around a famous racehorse bearing the name of "The Whip." Upon the question of "The Whip" winning the great race depend the fortunes of several people. A love affair also hangs on the result of the race. When several of the people who nro betting against tho horso winning find that "The Whip" is certain to win tho raco they go to great lengths to prevent tlio horse from appearing on tho track. But their efforts fail. The hoi'Be makes the raco, but with Iho owner's daughter as the jockey, in place of the jockoy who had boon selected to make the raco.
