In a telegram received from Tom Walsh at Chicago yesterday he said' the Detroit middleweight would leave Chicago on Friday for 'his bout With Young Al Ross in Lethbridge next Tuesday evening, Jan. 19th. This should bring him into Lethbridge on Sunday, giving him two days to rest and show ' the fans his style in a public workout on Monday. Owing to the sudden change In the arrangements it Is impossible to get Brennan here any sooner, but as the famous '" ' .diewelght Is right now in fii' '.' � -londl'.ion there is no ne-cei 'J for him to train here.' Young Ross has put on an extra spurt In his training campaign since he heard Kayo-Brennan is to be his next opponent and the fans �ee him hard at work every afternoon over the Plaza. Ross Is doing roadwork for his wind, and with his tonsils removed he should not have the same trouble from this source as he had in the Harrison matcH where his wind was very bad " that match owing to the har.j ' /rk It was for him to get hiL ' ath he could not keep'hie chin (.own and cov�red as li his 'usual fighting style and thus he left himself open more than is his custom when mixing it in the ring. The fans are highly elated with the opportunity to see Brennan in action; Any man who has gone the route with such men as the Gibbons Bros., George Chip, Jack Dillon, etc., puts him away above anyone who has ever appeared In ' action here in point of reputation, though there are many who doubt that he can be any better than the young.anU coming Harrison. rjnt fight is destined ... draw the biggest crowd ever, and orders for seats are already pouring in from outlying points. * > : ? > * > ' � CURLING-TONIGHT'S DRAWS Tljo curlers are up iinil al it ag.ilti.

Claimed Championship on Return The Ksklmo cjulntette returned home, reported their success and were awarded by the generous-hearted sport writers of the Ednfonton papers the championship of .\lberta, which was in turn gratefully accepted by the barnstormers. Had No Amateur Lads Then the southern teams discovered that the friendly games were Just a .sort of cnmoutlage adonied by the visitors and, after some iflvestigatiou, it was found that despite the tact that they were from the haven of the Simon Pures, the 'Amateur Union fountains of the Amateur Union, none of the barn-stormers carried cards, 'and, incidentally, they took oii any loams, no matter what they were or who they wei-e.

They oven suggest the organization of a committee to control basketball, oVer. looking the .\,A.U. baskotball committee, of which Cecil B. Race, of Edmonton is chairman. Here is tho latest rej^rt from the tar north: "Considerable controversy has arisen in basketball circles regarding how the schedule for tho championship of Alberta is to be decided. "Calgn,ry. reaHzing the slrerigth^ of the Edmonton All-Stars, has proposed that they be broken up into two teams - namely, Namao and tho Y.M.CA.-^and that these teams journey to Calgary and play a schedule tor tho championship. This evidently would take the fonh of a three-loam contest, two pdmontou teams and one Calgary. While this proposal is flattering to Edmonton, tho sturdy basket tossers from this city were not born yesterday, and, although, thoy feel that they could yipe-Calgary off tho map oven with their teams broken up, still they are taking no chances, and have proposed the following; "Tl*t Raymond itnd Lethbrldgo play off to decide the southern title; Calgary Y.M.C.A. and Kdniuntun ,YlM,C..'V. play home and hopio games to. decide llio liiter-ciiy tltK'tho first game tabo played in Edn^twOon- on February 11, when Calgary can take advantage '6� tli'e cheap rales pvevaUing for the notary Club convention here.

This gives Calgary all the beat ot It, with two final games on their own floor, but Edmonton is willing to grant this edge, as the players feel confident �they havo nothing to fear from southern opposition. drfer Ten-point Handicap "It Calgary feels that this schedulo dooB not give them enough advantage, it might bo suggested that Edmbtiton give them a handicap of aboyt 10 points, { "It is undecstood that Letlibriage, llaymond, Taher, Barnwell and Stirling havo already played most ot tholB schedule, and are almost ready to plB)* tor tho champlonshli).

AIRD RINK WON : : : : : : : : : : > : : * In connection with the 14th annual bonspiel which has just come to a close it niigtit be interesllng to note that the Calgury Herald of 20 years ago, con'-talns some particulars regarding tlio bonspiel ot tliat year, and some ol-the same curlers that were busy then are still on the job. At that time there were only 16 rinks entered in the Grand Challenge trophy, which was then donated by Hiram Walker. It was valued at $250 and prizes to the value "of $100 also went with it. . Among the skips that were entered in that compctitinn and who are also in attendance at the bonspiel this year, might be mentioned Alrd ot Lethbridge, Edgar of Innistail, and the veteran of the Thistle Club, I. S. Freeze. It win be noticed from the results this year the Grand Challenge, having copped it in 1898 and again In 1918. Several other well-known name's appear on the draw lor the Grand Challenge that year and among them am Jns.

Ferguson seems greatly alarmed over,! I will state that in the year 1890, what is known as the ".Manlsfesto,'' was issued by President Wiltord Woodruff, and since that time the church has ceased solomnizing plural marriages.  Phiral marriages since (hat date-have; not been TOoro freciuent-than bigamy' among Methodists, or any other seit. Statistics published by the church are enough to ally tho fears ot those who believe that Mormonism is en- i croaching upon tho institutions (iC Canada, as they testify ot splendid social conditions. The i�ath rate 'is a fraction under 8 per thousand, and the birth rate 38. There are very few really Pooi- peoi)le in the church, as thousands ot dollars are spent annually in caring for the worthy poor, and there are but very fewllaniilies that do not own their own homes. As time goes on the world will more appreciate Mormonism, and the unselfish devotion of its members in saving souls, tor this is the mission of tho Ciiurcli of Jesus Christ, which has been in cxlstenco 88 years, bu the fith day ot next April, and has enjoyed ft thrifty growth since, and is continuing to expand, and some of its principles that have alway.s been maintained are being adopted by people in the world, although thoy realize it not. [ The main criticisms that are hurled ^t tho church, are from people that have investigated Its principles and doctrines of belief from a biased viewpoint, or have never investigated at all.
