Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 19, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta ^SATjjRbAY, JANUARY Iff. 1918 THE LETHBRIDCfE -DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE 'BRINGING UP FATHER' By G. McManus Tait Gets Sound Trouncing Rocky Kansas Was Too Fast Champion Badly Mussed Up  Buffalo, N. y., Jan. 19.-Rocky Kansas, of Buffalo, won all the way from Clonic TaR, Canadian champion, In ten rounds nere last night. Talt showed flashes of form but was utterly lost at Inf'ghtlng, nt which Kansas gave him a sound trouncinc Talt was badly fussed up It the finish while Rocky finished With plenty to spare. This Is the first troui.clng Talt, the Canad Ian champion, has received for many a long day. It'ts understood that the articles of the �crap were so framed that the bout would not result m Talt losing his championship, which he did not care to defend or risk south of the '.me. Tait expects to leave Buffalo direct for Winnipeg immediately after this.,scrap, and should be in the western city In a few-days He. has a fight lined up for Winnipeg and nhen expects to leave for Letbbridge, and it Is quite within the bounds of possibility that he will bo seen in action here along about February 10. Just who his opponent will be Is not known, but he will be a good one. In Spirited Game-LetHbridgfe Loses Grand Challenge- Taber Taliies Walker Cup James Johnson tonight. Most of the curlers got away this evening and the remainder of thev isttors leave tomorrow. No finer lot of sportsmen could be found than the boys who took part In the Fernie Bonsplel of 1918, and they will all remember with uo regrets, tlie good time they passed in a ^week's sports, marred by not a single untoward incident. They will carry away with them a fine lot of Jewelry, along with the prize ,cups to remind them of the good time they had. May they all live to enjoy a ioUier^ time next year. (Speelal to the Herald) Parnie, Jan. J9.-The last day of the most successful bonsplel ever held In Fernie, was one of exciting interest, though the condition of the ice was not what good curlers would have wished for, In the Grand Challenge Cup competition, Baldrey won out from'Mc-Nab,-^hii8 iUftiiig' the clip,, from Letb-bridge baclc to Fernie. McN^b had woii ,tb{s;.ticb^Uy. from. Kastner at Xieth|t>ridge la^t; year, and Kastner played in'^Baldry's rink today when ba woa^ Jt Jback'.ffoin n most worthy -con-teatajfj.',. J.

He likes golf as o recreation, but the Insurance com; panles that guarantee the condition of his fingers and his ability to cori tinue with his hllUard exhibitions won't let him play. Not ao many years, ago WllJlo would drop anything to play baseball with the boys. But his ovn good sense told him that a billiard star couldn't afford to be taking chances of crippling his fingers for lite. So Willie turned to golf and was lust getting nic()Iy into\hi8 stride when word came from the Insurance com' pany that he must stop. "It,'8 just this way," said llopp^ "the insurance people told mo that l' was taking a chanc* of injuring my arm./ I am insured up to $100,000 and they put a stop to that sport. I was sorry, ^oo, because I enjoyed golf and consider it a great gama.", Two new Union Bank ^directors are A. Hitchcock, Moose Jaw, and W. H. Malklo, Vancouver. .

Finance The plan adopted tor raising finances proved very successful, and IE a similar iPturn is made for 1918 the financial end ot the board's' work will be assured. Correspondence Of a general character has been heavy during the year, many enquiries being received from Eastern Canada, the Western and Eastern States, and also from soldiers convalescing In the Old Country. The Water Conference also entailed an extra amount of mailing of publicity matter.

They prepare exaggerated descriptions for use on boxes of "imported" cigars.-Superlative adjectives and glowing terms are their stock in trade. The DAVIS "NOBLEMEN" CIGAR . (2 for2Sc.)' ^ , is equal to the finest imported brands, yet the cost is half. All we claim for "NOBLEMEN" is that it is blended from the choicest Havana leaf by skilled workmen. An exaggerated description on a box of cigars is no more guarantee of quality than a tombstone inscription is a passport to Paradise. Look for "Quality" only and you will find the "NOBLEMEN" qgar. S.
