Local Basketballers Lose Both Matches at Raymond The Haymond basketball team displayed a great, come-back stunt last night., when they brought the local learns to defeat upon the Knight Acad-omy floor. The score of the senior game was 42-26, the junior game 30-28. They were both fast, but the junior ^amo was the best to watch, the score zigzagging from one side to tho other till the last minute. The first half of the senior game was nip and tuck, fhe "V" taking, the north basket, which is the hardest to shoot in because it is right against ihe wall. Raymond made a i^ood start but were soon evened up and the score swayed from one aide to ths other till the whistle blew, showing the �core to be 16-10. With the good basket to shoot in and everyone feeling fresh the locals felt confident of victory, but their combination was poor and shooting poorer, while Raymnd got going juat as the "V did in the game here. Th3 local forwards were held tight from the start to the finish but the Raymond guards had many fouls called on them and Skouson committed the four per-Bonal fouls which disqualifies. For the winners the forwards did good shooting, Meldrum getting away from "Irish" Kane as never before in ihe second half, securing 9 field baskets in one half. Xalder was shooting long shots well. Burr was in the game ihe full period at his beat. Buhler was rlieir most effective guard. !14 117 138 123- -37S 1S3 w,\ 139- -375 L'oO 241 2(3?- -753 .TenningH and Williams took Raymond and Aird into camp in the don-Ides howling competition last night, la-king three straight games, thereby putting themselves on top of the heap. They are the first team to win three straight, and as the competition goes by games won rather than total >fns, they have the edge on the other teams.

President Weegh-man declared today in reply to^Alex-ander's statement that he must have a $10,000 bonus and a salary of $12,000 a year. "Nothing but war will keep Alexander out of the game," said Weegh-man.

E. Ewing, manager of the Bank of Commerce, who has been transferred to Ft. William, at a banquet and smoker last evening in the King George, which was remarkable for the geniality and goodfellow-ship. Mayor Willard was toastmaster, and there were about 60 present. Those present from Lethbridge were Dr. Leech. H. T. Brymner, Chas. Moe, and John H. Wilkie. There were only two toasts, the King and the boys overseas, responded to by Dr. Leech. Then the affair became informal, and many speeches ( were made eulogistic of the qualities HoiL'a'w. Cross, Hon! j\ 'it. "Boyle! i �r *M Ewm6. The finest touch of the - ! MOORE WON Baltimore.

V v ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?   o HOW JOHN L. DIED Boston.-John L. Sullivan passed away suddenly at his home in North Abington last Saturday. The old fighter "died with shoes on." * His death was a knockout typical of the mysterious punch of tire sinister champion, "heart trouble." And it came as the loss of Mb title to Corbett came, these twenty-six years ago, out of a clear sky. John L. was up early in the morning. His friends, George Bush and William Kelly, who had been sharing the house with him, told that he had stayed up till midnight, absorbed in a new solitaire game. Following his usual tasks around the house, he dressed to go to Boston. He had just finished dressing when he fainted suddenly. Bush, who was with him at the time, saw him fall across the bed. The bedroom, with the two men alone, staged a scene that has preceded many a real knockout in tho "squared circle." - Sullivan went down under the mysterious force of the punch of the unseen adversary. Bush, as one might second a fallen fighter, rushed for water and dashed it into his face. Under the treatment the old champion revived. He looked about him, sat on the edge of the bed with his face in his hands, complaining of a pain around his heart. Willing, game and anxious, as ever, to go on, he was beginning to "take the count" and he seemed to know it. Bush, meanwhile, sent Kelly for a doctor and the physician came. Finding Sullivan sitting on the bed, he ordered him to retire. Bush tells the rest of the story himself, briefly, thus: ' "I don't know how he went or when. He just simply slipped away, somehow, so quickly that I didn't realize that he had gone." According to Bush, there was. simply one of Death's "haymakers" that floored the Boston . "strong boy" for good, a wile} punch delivered Just when John L. seemed to be having all the better of the battle of life. He was 59 years old. ? I* ? ? ? ? ? V ? ? ? ? ? ? V ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Hon.

Anderson rose to make a presentation of an engraved gold watch and chain and a gold headed cane to Mr. Ewing. Mr. Anderson's speech was a most happy one, referring to the many friends .Mr. Ewing had and his work for the community and countryside. Mr. Ewing in replying reviewed his nine years' residence In Taber, and said that he had always Jhad faith in the country and in the people of the community and distrfct and that faith had been justified.
