To pirnle IWonday The prospects look very bright for the District Bonspiel at Fernie on .Monday, when Lethbridge Is due In largo numbers and will get a big welcome.. A new Grand Aggregate Trophy has been presented by the ITritos-Wood Co. of Ferule, which will make five compeliLionii iu all. It' is proposed to take, in the skating rink next door to the Fernie Curling rink, which, added � to the live sheets In the curling rink v.ill give ample accommodation and run the 'spieli off in good time. Fernie favors Lolhbridgo when the 'spiel is here, .with about si.x rinks aud this town is due there in �ul! force. The acting secretary should know by tonight or early Saturday moi-uinfj the personnel of rinks going, so that arrangements con be made In good iGirls^ Ba^^^^^ Rules For 1918 iMatee JEpr Less Strenuous Playing |iUnHer:New Rules Five Fouls of Any Kind Will Disqualify  Player From Further Participation in the Game; Must Play Under New Rules I .The 19.18 girls' basketball rules have !ju�t made their appearance. Not maAy change^ aro\ noted,' although two of these will doubtless do much to Insure cleaner play, . Tho first rule that shows' an Improve-imont. over previous years has to do Iwltli'guarding at. the basket. Heretofore, it has frequently happened that av -'ri|liBg,Mawe:ver, five fouls of anyiklnd iWill ^IstjuMltjr'a'playier;' ' > Another change makes it possible for U girl to loss the ball !n the air and catch It herself to avoid the penalty for holding the ball mora than three seconds. Heret;ofore, when tho ball was tossed into the air by a player, she could not catch it again uWil it had, first been played by some other player,' except when she.was shooting for. a basket,  , New Rules for Centres A fourth change in tho rules makes It compulsory for both players to ac^ ually jump for the-ball on a toss-up It , has frequently happened that a short player, realizing that she had no chance to get the bjiU in .ifi toss-up^ would not try to jump l)ut would back |away at the toss in the hope of catching tho ball after it bad been batted by her opponent. � The last change doate with tho awarding of the ball after a call of time. If a player holds the ball when time Is'called for any season, the ball Is returned to, this player ^by the reteroo when the game Is, rasuined. Heretofore the ball has boon tossed between this player and her opponent. Tl^e revision committee urge upon all girls' teams to play under'the new rules without variation. In order that they may bo" given a thorough try-out, � 'I Now, when You Buy a Mitchell The repairs do cost you more here than they do at ' the factory^ but you will need them so seljjotn that I even at that they are cheapier than the repairs fo^ other qars, ! ; AND BESIDES ' \yougeV31 extra .features with the car.

Post-mortems on the Ross-IIar-rison mill were the order of the day yesterday, and. the fans fouglit It all out again a dozen as they gaUiered in littJe knots on the .qtr/ots, hotel corridors and barber shops. "What was lost?" the reason Ross T!i,at was tho question everybody was' askia^g. There wasn't a single dissenting voice as to Jud Foley's decision. Even Ross' most intimate friends were of the opinion that Jud could have given no other decision, so the fans had to look for some other reason. "He v/as up aeainst a bett6r fighter." ' "Ross wasn't in condition. He had no chance to got in condition, having DO sparring partner who can maVii him mil). And ho had boon winning so eniuly previously tlir.t he had eomo to believe he could got by without much training-" Those v,-cre tho two opinions often exprcssfid, and porhap,"! tht; latter wa.s tho most generally accepted by tho fans. They real'zod that Harrison is' one of tho In the game, and were mi.c;hty glad of the chance of seeing him iu action, but they have not gone back on tho local favorite, of many fi.-itic encounters by , a long .shot. They pont to (ho fact that Harrison, located as hq is in Chicago where there are plenfy of scrapijors. can got a good stiff workout any day und^er tho best of conditions, thus keeping improving continually. But Ross' workouts are moroor less jokes. He dare not let himself out or the sparring partners who  . are available would quit the game. , The result is that the local man's footwork was not up to the mark, nor was his Judgment in aiming and timing his blows. . It takes practice to keep up efllciency in these two important departments  . of the fight game, and it was liore that Harrison established his superiority. It is up to Ross himself to remedy those defects into which ho has fallen by reason of being' so far from tlie big boxing cen- ' tres. ilN'SINSTIIUIE A mwm TO m Tho unruly pitcher of the Pittsburg Pirates yesterday, was traded to the Brooklyn team. With him went Ward and Grimes, and tlie Pirates received tu. exchange Casey' Stengel- and Cut-shaw. Mamaux in 1015 and .1916 was, among the! most, effective pitchers in the National league, winning a big majoitity i of his games despite tho fact t\vA^ his ' toam was always woU down in tho second division. Last year he had trouble with the management for failure to koep'^iu trim and was suspended.

That Ross fought a pretty defensive fight after he found- ho was.up against a real scrapper^is generally conceded, and tho fans as a rule do not admit that he was outgamod. , Whether he 90uld ever beat Harrison ev(?n if he was; in the best of shape is a moot; question, but most of the fans be-; -llevo. he. could do a lot better than he did on Wednesday night. And that Is tho reason, tlie tans Willi continue to go to see Rosa fight it he win show by Jils training that, he is doing his best to got to the) tpp of his form. They like him . and they want to see him go against another good one to give him a chance to prove he is the fighter they think him; . � Harrison Is returning to Chicago via the Pacific Coast where it Is ' said the fight .game la going strong.

The locals will know some time today.

They challenge any two bowlers in the city for a,match of five games of ten-pins. No doubt th^re will be ma/iy who are'willing to try conclusions with thorn, and It may result In a two or three-men league  being started ,instead of five-men, as was originally intended. Arty two bowlers who, think" thoy can'take these two bowlers into camp, kindly notify the alley management and arrangements will bje made for the match. A meeting of bowlers will likely soon be called to form a league. , b Citizens Meet to Discuss it- -Part of Building for Red Cross ^ CFrom Our Own CorreanonO-iit > Magrath, Jan. 9.-If the plans formed work out satisfactorily Magrath will have a fine gymnasium in the near future.
