Durftg tlie first three rounds Miske boxed in a croucliiiig position, with Fulton straighteniiiK jiim up with left uppercuts, which .Aiiske took and rushed back for.more. Pulton's superior boxing ability held MIske'at long range at limes, but the latter bored in until he reached Fulton's stomach with some stiff punches. In two rounds .MisliQ stung Fulton with a shower ot liRht and left hand |pui(Ches, with the larger man unable to land telling blows The last tv.'o rounds were very fast, Miske showing'to advantage In the ninth with T.uitou trying hard to land a punch which would give him a knociiout.

Great is the drawing power ot baseball, boxing, football and thoroughbred racing in this country when some vital issue is at stake. College football holds tho record In numbers at 80,000 in round figures. Boxing holds the record in gross receipt* with ?270,-775. Baseball and racing are behind football and boxing In attendance as Well as in receipts only because of space limitations. Football set Us high mark when Yalo defeated Harvard In the Yale Bowl at New Haven in November, 1916. Boxing climbed to dizzy heights when Jack Johnson knocked out ,Ilm Jeffries in the heart of' the Rockies. Baseball's record in both attondaiftce and. receipts was set in tho fifth game of the world's series between the Boston Red Sox and the Brooklyn Robins' nt Boston In 1916, when 42,620 men.Vomen and boys paid $83,673 to see the Red Sox clinch tho title. Close to 60,000i men and women were jammed In Belmont Park on Memorial day ot 1908, when tho late James R. Keene's unbeaten Co)in beat August Belmont's Fair Play Jn the: Belmont stakes. It la said that fully 70,000 watched "Snapper" Garrison ride Boundlosa to victory In the American derby of 1893, the year of the wifrld's fair In Cbli^go, and no doubt racing receipts for  single day have approached close to the |200,000 mark.

Hall Insurance On Wednesday the report of tho hail insurance committee will fie made. This is one of the most Important topics to como before the convention, and It is believed that the directors' resolution on the matter will be adopted. This resolution calla for the extension of the hail Insurance act to every municipality in the province, and asks that when new municipalities are formed, they become automatically participants in the niuRlcipal scheme. As premium rates in Alberta are higher than those prevailing in Saskatchewan, where the munKipal idea Is generally operative, it la hoped that an extension of the scheme in Alberta will have the effect of lowering rates charged by line companies.

He empha.. sized that conditions In the Yictnlty of enemy ports are wholly different to those near BriUsh ports. Absence ot mercantile traffic enables the Ger-mans to do extenslye mining, whilst .-the volume of, mercantile traffic in 3 British ports necessitated the keeping v� of British ports clear of mines.
