Following is an excerpt from a French sporting journal: "The theaue is the ancient game of hall to the field modified and regulated. One can play to ten, but to well play the theque it is necessary to be 18 players. The dimensions of the ground Is Illimitable, all the same she ought not_to nave less than 300 square meters. One traces a polygon, of 3.0 meters. The bases are indicated by blocks of wood. The. first chamber (home plate) is ordinary a square o two meters or side. The post of emplacement of the lancer (pitcher) ought to find itself at four meters from the first base. The lancer ought not to eject the ball, but lance her in such a fashion that she arrive between the shoulder and the knee of the beater (batter). The role of beater is of to beat the ball, as soon as she is served In the direction which he desires (but nil the same before his field) and far enough to permit him *>f to run at least to the second base and thus soon again just to the base of return. The play of. the opposed field is to send back the ball the most rapidly possible to prevent the beater from making his run around." ? ? ? Raymond are visiting Leth-hridge with their best i'out forward tomorrow night in the first clash of the season tween the Sugar Town and local "Y." The whole countryside are coming with them and will hack their favorites to the last. Tliis particular game is being looked forward to as no other during the season'and the local supporters will also be there with bells on. There will be '-two games, junior and senior, and �either one will be worth the price oC admission. The local second team have been showing up much better in the last few practices, and can be expected to give a good account of themselves. LOR ROSEBERY * ? ? Warren Dfpew Suiters Loss Dick Kinsey Injured New Garage RAYMOND CREW 10 Toronto. Jan. 23.-A. special dispatch to the Globe says: "Jess Willard yesterday declared that Fred Fulton must redeem, himself before he can,hope to get a chance at the heavyweight title. The plasterer's showing against. "Billy'' Miske disappointed the_ champion. He is not anxious to have Fulton make a name for himself at the expense of the soldiers. Said Willard:' '* (J haven't given up hope.of meeting Fulton, but. before 1 do 1 want, to get public assurance that they consider him a worthy foe. I'm not boxing to make history for him or a name, t want to aid the hoys over there. If I do box Fulton and the show draws $100/000. 1 want that, much to go to the soldiers. . If it draws $1:0,000, I want to be sure they get it all. And to make Fulton's burden lighter I'll pay his training expenses, pay for the renting of the ring and other incidentals.'' REV. "BILLY" SUNDAY PRAYED IN CONGRESS ^ Washington-For the first tlme> in history the house applauded and yelled in greeting a prayer. The prayer abounded in such ' phrases as "We thank you," O Lord, that we. have never gone to bed hungry. We thank thee that we have never scraped the bottom of our flour barrel." It was delivered by Billy Sunday, who sent winged � shafts. "Thou kiiowest, O Lord," he prayed, "that no nation so infamous, vile, greedy, sensuous blood thirsty has ever disgraced the pages of history. Make bare thy mighty arm O Lord, and "smite the Hungry wolfish Hun, whose fangs drip with blood and we will forever raise our faces in Thy praise." WELL AT FEME Macldod..

Lamb. years old, is slightly over t> feet 2 inches in height, broad in proportion and with fists that look like uncov-erod hams in repose. Down among the longshoreamen in New York, where Lamb was frequently1 in action, it was reported that those fists resembled British tanks when they got to flying about. The lion-like Lamb was drawn early in the selective draft. Did he go? Not. he. He announced grimly through his teeth that he would like to see any qualified or any unqualified policeman come and get him. "Is that so?" commented the man in charge of that first branch detective bureau. "We'd better give this world beater the once over before we call out all the reserves." Thereupon he called before him a young man. Calmly the young man from, the bureau walked right up to the lbngshoresman and. grinning hopefully, asked if his name were Lamb, followed by the announcement that !f it happened to be such he, Lamb, was expected up at headquarters immediately. Every other longshoreaman joyously waited for the explosion. It never came. After a prolonged survey Lamb suddenly collapsed in the middle section and replied, as meekly as hlsiiiamo sounds: "All right, mister, I'll come." Come he did, subsequently Going to Trot Out Strongest Line-up Possible Against Lethhridge (Special to The Herald) -Raymond, Jan. 23.-Lethbridge will have to play ball every min ute of the time if they defeat Ray- i mond on Friday. The local boys have been practising steadily since the Edmonton game and those who have seen them at workouts say they have the rudiments of the game down to a science. The players are in the pink of condition and Coach Robbins states that they should make an excellent showing. The Nneup will probably see three new men in uniform, Skouson, . Buhler and Burr. The two first mentioned have played considerably in the states while Burr is a recruit from the junior team. Walker, Meldrum and Nalder will complete the lineup. The juniors also should make a good ' showing. That team is composed of practically the same youngsters as last year's crew. The Knight Academy band and a large number of rooters will accompany the team. . (From Our Own Correspondent) .Raymond, J**n. 20.-The residence or^Varren Depew was burned*to the ground this morning.

Although the National league club owners tentatively decided to pe*mit Tener to remain in the chair as president at the recent meeting in New York, they have come to the conclusion that their organization is too h'g to have him live only half his time to the duties.

'They feel that the task of running the affairs of the league is a big one and that the job requires all of one man's time and that Tener can not do himself or the position Justice by trying to be president of the league and at the siime time hold down another job. . The owners of the National league are looking forward to one of the best seasons in years despite war conditions.. Times have been a bit strenuous and may be this year and that is why the magnates desire that some one occupy the chair who cau give all of his time to the work. They will probably continue with Tener ns president until the February meeting * in New York, and by that time a new man will have been found and will he announced. Judge Landis Mentioned Judge Landis is one of the men who have been mentioned to succeed Tcner and it would not be at all surprising if he were offered the position. Charles W. Murphy also has been mentioned, as has .John Heydler, but what the league will do is a problem. Murphy is out of the question because the club owners do not feel kindly toward him. Because of past experience Heydler would make an ideal executive. He probably knows more about the game than any other man in it. Landis has always been a fan, is thoroughly familiar with all its angles, and the belief of some that a man better qualified could not be found anywhere.
