Dr. Watson, GOOD ICE TONIGHT There will bo real skating ice at the Henderson Park lake this evening. Somehow the wires got crossed yesterday, and those who went to the lake J. M. DOUGLAS & CO^ CuuMllaii'Agents, MONTREAL. last night lu eujoy a ukulc, had the skate all right, hut little o� the enjoyment. The ice was badly cut up. Toniglit. however, it will be different. At noon today the sprinklers got busy after the ice had been cleaned off, and Mr. Jack, in charge of the sports, tells the Herald that U will be a grand sheet tonight, bo that nobody need wtay awaj', tearing the ice will be bad. Mr. Jack is also trying to arrange a double car service be tween seven and eleven, so that the crowded condition of the cars will he obviated. During lijo holiday season it la promised that the band will perform at the lake at ileaut one evening, and probably two, each woelc. Ue one ot the thousand eujoyiug the sport tonight. Stop tba Rough Work There Js oa�x serious defect in th� sKatlne at the lake: tbeve i.% do drder and somebody geta buTt svery nlgbt by t)ie reckI�B� otves. Thore wai only a narrow strip ot Iqo in une last nlgbt, and the playtul ixiqlud�d got in a lot of their rough work, toppling over skaters right and left. There IB plenty of room for the fuu-maker� Without Interfe'rlnB with those bent on enjoying a good uumolested skate. Tho rough work is enttMly �ut of order. The city hockey league schedule was drawn up at a meeting of the clubs last night, the first date reading Christmas Day. Three clubs are all tba'i are embraced in tho league: the Sporting Goods, Y. M. C. A. and Aquatics, tho school team having united with the Y. M. C. A., and the Henderson garage seven with the Sporting GoodsyA'his will be the means of mSteitHr^i'eo last teams, the five-team league being considered too big for the amount of pood material available for each of the five club� first considered. Nothing definite has been done about a district hockey organization here yet. There is some demand, but as yel the situation to that end is doubtful in this neck-o'-the-woods. � The city league schedule is as follows, and has >been ottlclally declared correct: Sporting Goods vs. Y.W.C.A., We* nesday, December 25.

The same ^vlU apply to weather perinltting unless otherwiao arranged iiy the committee, Chicago, Dec. 16.-From gymnasium fighter to the logical claimant ot the white heavyweight cliampionahlp or the world Is the rise of Luther McCarty, ojinqueror ot Jim Flynn, has made In tho last year and a half. When he broke Into pugilism McCarty hung around Bill O'Conhell's gymnae lum in ibis city. Ho was ambitious to bo a fighter, and he became such pest that P'C{>nneli requested him to stay away from the gymnnalum. "It is one ot tho most peculiar ex perlences l ever have had since 1 hav been in this business," said O'Con nell. "I had to bar McCarty from the gymnaalum iu order to keep my pupils. Boxing lessons are given in tho mornings and evenings and the boxers use the gymnasium in the afternoons McCarty waa around the place all tho time, and I do not believe he even took time to go out and ent some days. He became such a detriment to business that I had to bar him. "Before I took drastic action I show cd him a few things about the game during my spare moments, and I saw he *aB quick to learn. I tried to find him a manager, but no one seemed to want to take a chance with hini. H went out to shift for hiraselt and found a manager. Then started his rise to fame. "1 am gli^d to hear of his success, He has ail the qualifications ot clever boxer. I think he will beat Al Palzer on New Year's Day, and it he does be will be entitled to the white heavyweight championship of the world." Elsvater Prlea* Northern ......,........,........
