So far as I can see nothing will take me into the ring again. "What brought me back in a hurry was a desire to see Conan Doyle. He has virtually consented to write me a one-act play, the hero, of course, to be a prize fighter. I shall use it as a sketch in the music halls."

It had been hoped Coleman might trim Macleod on the home ice and thus practically ensure the championship for the West as the Macleod rink is small and the local players being "onto" its pecul- iarities, it was felt that if Coleman could win there the return game at Coleman on a large rink would be a cinch.

Gardiner is one of the best for- wards in the game and although not a spectacular player like Tom Philips, he is very effective and is a gcod goal getter. Frank play Coleman at Coleman These games will wind up the hockey season as far as any games are sche- duled. In addition 'to the discomfiture of being beaten at Macleod, the Coleman team had another distasteful dose of medicine to take, as, returning to Pincher Creek the team stopped to play today, and again got trimmed, this time by a score of 5 to 3.
