Meantime an effort Is being made to arrange a game with the oracle' Raymond team. Raymond Quintet Ready for Clash with Lethbridge Raymond, Feb. 5.-The Ray-mondltes are again up to their old tricks in basketball. They have been quite alow In getting around this year on account of the dark age falling upon Ra/-mond. Now gas lamps have come to their rescue and the old warhorse spirit has taken hold of them again brihging In that man Walker noted for his shahts and Jumps at centre; Meldrum the tworslded boy 'who gets his opponents on one side when they ought to be on the other; Nalder the fleet-foot amateur who always finds the hoop; Woolfe and Ste- vens who sit at ease on the guard line. These together,with five imitating juniors need watching. The two teams are getting in line for some hard and interesting games which they expect to play In the near future.

From all reports the fans are going to get their money'S'wortii this season. Keep your eye on Raymond.. Telegraphic 10-pin Match Thurs. Night On Thursday night the first lelesraphic bowling match of the season will be pulled off between Calgary and Lethbridge. Two five-man teams are being lined up m each city for the event, and immediately after the game the Bcores v/lll bo exchanged by wire. ' The locals are right up on their ears to beat the crew from the northern metropolis and are trotting out their tep best trunrilcrs. They have no doubt of the result. One Lone "Biig" in Big Show In 1$83-Ancients Didn't Kriow Them -i? A -- Southt)a\V8 cut a big figure in major leagije" pitching records last Beas6n^ hut time', was when southpaws were priblloEiifly uiiknown in baseball. Tlie Si;: lioui^-Brow.ns of last season had as many "left-handers on their pitchiijg, staff as could be fouud in the two major league organizations back in 1884.- The only team that had a southpaw" of .any class in the National league during 1883-84 was Detroit, and Fred Shaw, otherwise, known as the "Flea" was ^he chap. Shaw was the first portsider to fill the shoes of the famous Dr. Lee Richmond, tlie daddy of all left-handers. Richmond hiad retired .from the ipltching game when the famous .Shaw blossomed out as h. full-fledged star. The'old American association co.uld boaist of just a single southpaw during the. seasons of 1883-84. Ed'die Morris was the lad whom the Coliim-bus dub hajd on its staff and he made tame as one of the pioneers and hur-lers of sauthpaw benders. After leaving Columbus Morris was with the Pittsburg team of the American association, and later the Nation'al league. Shaw Had Competition In the season of .1885, in the National, circuit, Shaw had some competition Jn flinging left-handed curves In the person or persons of Lady Baldwin and Dan Casey, both joining the Detroit team that season. The city of the istraits seemed to have a: monopoly on southpaws during that! period, However, flea like, Shaw jumped the team and Casey signed with tlie Pliiladelphla Nationals later j and was their star for several years. There was great rivalry between these three and they were as jealous of each other as a bunch of sou-brettes. ,Tho great Tom Ramsey made his appearance in' the American association with tlie Louisville club In the latter part of 1885, and qualified at once when he whitted 15 of the Baltimore team. The old Metropolitan cluib of New York that season, had on its. lineup the noted iSdward Cushman, whose feats of pitching a baseball were nuinerous and wonderful. Six Left Handers Uip to and including 1885 w? flndj that the two big leagues contained; only six. left-handed pitchers-Shaw, Baldwiii ,Ca;sey, Morris, Cushman and Ramsey. On the pitching staff of the St. Louis Americans for 1916 we find the names of Plank, Hamilton, Wellmap, Koob and Sisler, all qualified artists also a couple of southpaw recruits on the roster . Today wefljid over 30 left-handed' pitchers ill the two big leagues and eboiit that many on tiie sidelines or sent beick to the minors for a little more seasoning. The crop of south-naws has varied considerably from eeason to season. In the season of 1890 the names of 24 left-handers could be found in tho box scores of the games played in the three major | leagues and all %yore regulars. In the season of 1893, tlie second year of the i n 2-cIub � circuit, juef �fivo sputhpawq I had survived the change in the pitching rules-tho lengthened distance. Frank Klllen, Georgfe JSspor, Wee .Willie 'McGIll, .Centrifugal Clausen | and the $teat Theodore Breitenstcln were the ones who mastered the new distance. , V Gain Prominence Not until 1809 ditl the lelt-hauded fellows'come , Loudon, Feb. 3.-Following are the .results of today's English league, football games played on the grounds of the first mentioned club: Midland Section Birmingham 1, I.^eads 1. iBradford 1, Sheffield United 1.

" GEORGE MWLLIN DECLrNES Fort Smith, Ark., Feb. 5.-George MuUln, of Kokomo, Ind, fornier pitcher for the Detroit Americans, declined the management of the Fort Smith club of tho Western association. ' Mncleod, Feb.Tl.-Macleod public board- have had: their troubles keeping their staff of teachers up to the number required. The war has taken a number who arc now in the trenches, while cupid continues to seek recrnits and has ,bee;i successful in securing some, even among the teachers in our public school. The cold weather has had its effect on tho coal bin at the gchobli but so far they have been able to.beetj stock enough ahead to keep the school warm. At 3.30 p.m. today the thermometer began to rise, and^t G.:;o p.m. it had risen from 20 below to IS above. This, with a real chiriobk blowing, made tho hearts of raa'ny glad, as the fuel question has become a serious ono, whicli will take some time to overcome, so- that all eyes arc turned to the coal miners, and liis return to work. Early this morning or Into night the proprietor of tho Queen's hotel, toolc over the manageuKMit of the American iiotcl; thus whiia under one management, they will be run as scp-fjrate hotels. The travolling public are assured of tlje same good accommodation. Several of the rural schools ars setting good examples in making their local entertainments give the proceeds to the Red Cross or Patriotic fund, thus assisting in some way to provide our boys with comforts. Mud L.iks' school district did well by sending a substantial amount for one of these. Cattlemen from tlio hills report very little snow and plenty o� feed and water, with all stock in good condition for the winter.  H. Bruce & Sons, who moved their stocks from this district, for lack of grazing land, to the vicinity of Oil City, was a visitor to Maclood this week and reports feed plentiful for ali the stock in their new location, with plenty of shelter during stormy weather, the springs in many parts are not frozen. Ho smiled at the thought of fuel famine, as they have an abundance of wood on their own land, and tithber can bo purchased for the use of homesteaders at a very small price. He was delighted with the price of beef, it being higher than previous years. Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Metge are receiving congratulations over the arrival of their son and heir. The reported shortage of fuel in Maoleod lias proved a benefit to both buyer and seller, as one firm discovered they,had>^oal and wood; they advertised It, ahd have since sold. Does advertising .pay. Plumbers and .tinsmiths have been bu^y during the cold weather, dealing pipes and furnaces, and th-iw'ng frozen pipes. Many membei's of the 191st are home this week visiting their friends, some members of the Army Bledical Corps are on theii^final trip home. A statement has been compiled by Chief Inspector Forster of the convictions under the Alberta Liquor Act during the first six months . of its operation. The total convictions recorded between July Ist and December 31st, 1916, were 413.-thirty-one of those convicted of offences under the Act were sent to prison for various terms. The convictions covered all parts of tho provi;ice and are the result largely of tfie, work of provincial officers and city police foi-coF The assistance given by the R. N. yv. M. P. towards the enforcement of the old Liquor License Ordinance in the past has not been given towards enforcing the Liquor Act. A� classification of the convictions is' as follows: a o July .... 30 27 7 August . 51 47 3 September 73 70 .. October . 69 54 13 November 90 85 5 December 94 90 3 a wm 2 1 3 2 $ i,50o.or 3,812.00 ? 4,-214.00 2,99B.0C 5,547.00 5,980.00 413 373 31 9 $24,048.00 Poi" the same period of 1915, under the Liquor License Ordinance the convictions were as follows,: July ..... August ,.. September October .. i^ovcmtier December o O 26 49, 33 46 . 69. 52 & ? 1,492.50 4,107.00 6 Mos. 5 days 2,fll.00 22 mos. 3?124.00 4,967.00 5 mos. 2.379.13 34 mos. 275 ?18,180.63 A comparison between the two statements would go to show that considerable energy has been put into the enforcement of the new Act. The comparative smallness of the amount of money collected iii fines is due to the provision of The- Liquor Act makiriga $50.00 fine the minimum for a first conviction. The fine is too suifiU and is not adeterrant Y'li^re the crime of bootlegging is followed foiv the pxirpose of gain. Second convictions h^ve been obtained in a number of cases. A third conviction' means a substantial term in gaol. The above figures do .not take into account convictions for, drunkenness und'ei' municipal by-laws or the criminal code. Reports and records from the various centres of population in the'province _8how that drunkenness as-ia police court crime has practic-aUy-disappe|ired. MTEURPLAY 0 Ai mmmi (From Our Own Correspondent) Carmanga>^ Fob. 3.-Carftmngay is .still in tlie' grip of cold wcatii'^r. Business lias been affected, the farmers preferring the warmth of their firesides, rather thaji the cold nf tlio oiitflidc. Consequently evoi-jt'iiug aro.und town is rather quiet. Ono thing goes on as usual, the 'roarin' game' draws just a.s bi^' a crowd as ever and many iutercHting games have taken place. A partiiu-lariy interest group of spcc'Mo.-s wached the games between �the two Lethbridge rinks and two local rini's skipped by .las. McNaugliton an-1 B. C. Lav,-, We should be glad to Lte more Qvi'side rink-s. With the opening of the logis'ativo assembly close at hand, February tth, our local M. P. P., Mr. Jas. McN'aiigh-ton leaves for Edmonton this v,-e.".k. The Rod Cross social held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Harrison on Wednesday evening was a pronounced success. The items of the program were well received, the following artists taking part: I'lano solo, Mr. CrlBpo; vocal solo, Mr. Rolls; reading, Rov. Tolfer; vocal solo, Miss Follis; vocal solo. Miss Walker; ec-companists ^frs. Folk and I\Iiss Eyres. A cake weighc guessing competition was won by. Miss Eyres and three dollars was given for a cake auctioned by the chairman, Mr. E. O'. Follis. Light refreshments were served and a ideliahtlul evening came to a close with the singing of the national anthem. Cotisiderabie interest is being awakened in the play which is to be put on by local talent in the Oddfellows , hall -next Friday. The Bar of Civilisation is a forceful and picturesque presentation of the reasons for the world war. No less than twenty-six characters take part, I'epresenting the various nationalities involved in the world str.uggle, or testifying civilization, culture, kultur, mercy, justice, peace, etc. National songs -will be sung by a male quartette to add interest to the play, while the setting and costumes give a splendid opportunity for some good tableaux. The Bar of Civilization should be worth seeing. Tho Ruthven Macdonald evening held on Friday drew a fair-sized and deeply appreciated audience. Mr. Macdonald's selection o� song and story is wide in range and choice of character. He was heard to very good advantage and provided a pleasant evening for the people of Carmangay. We would appreciate more programs like that of Mr. Ruthven .Macdonald's. Mr. 0. H. Taylor left Saturday for Chicago and other points in the United States, for an extended visit. He will visit his old home before returning to Carmangay. .

With the active co-operation of the Mines Branch of the Department j of P.uhHc Works practically all the, data asked for in connection with the mining industry has been received and is now being tabulated. It is expected that the report on this section of tho survey will be printed and I ready for distribf-ition sometime in' -March. Dr. Miller, tho principal of the Institute has .recently visited Leth-bridso and Medicine Hat where he addressed tho Boards of Trade and tho municipal and educational authorities with the result that these cities have followed the example of Calgary and Edmonton and have appointed a local advisory committee to co-oper-ato with the survey staff. The mailing lists for productive and manufacturing industr^ies, wholesale business and dopartmoatal stores have been completed in Calgary. Mr. Dolan and Mr. Boyce of the institute staff u'ho are in executive charge of the survey are-receiving the active assistance of 20 local educationists who are interested in getting this first) hand contact witli conditions outside of their schools and into which their pupils -will go. The necessary form.s have been mailed to tho firms concerned and the managers have been requested to fill in the information asked for and to hold tiie form until calletl upon by representatives of the survey in the next two weeks, The; mailing lists id Edmonton,^ Lethbridge and Medicine Hat are in course of preparation and the survey will proceed as soon as they are completed. � The plan of those responsible is to take ,up and complete and report upon the survey in definite units rather than to attempt to carry the whole range of the survey work at one t|me. This will make possible not dnlyj more effective work but also quicker; results in the more important sec- j tions of the survey especially those dealing with occupations in -tvhich there will be the greatest number of openings for the employment j of returned soldiers. Where additional staff is necessary for the purposes of the survey the Minister of Educatioii OR STOMACH MISERY IN FIVE "Pape's DIapepsin" for Sour Acid Ston^ach, Heartburn. Dyspepsia.
