In_tho To yard race for girls of ii> nd. under, 2C eager maidens lined p on the track and after several __ [false starts made the distance in re- a' time. The winners were Mar- --Hfion Burrell first, Marjory-Sherlock a second and Hilda Brandow third. The winner -was one of the smallest girls to enjer, but was fleet as a deer. Thirty-two boys entered the 100 yards race for boys 12 and under. The following winners.: Wil- lie Watt, 1; John Cropley, 2, and Geof- frey Waddington, 3. In the intervals between these rac- es an attractive pyramid drill was executed on the platform by ten boys from the under the supervision of Physical Director Thompson. The egg and spoon race afforded much excitement, and no small am- ount of amusement to the spectators The "Winners were .Willie Watt, 1: Gordon Hutton, 2, and Ecklami Kaake, 3. Perhaps the event of tho day that caused the greatest hilarity was the blind boxing contest. A miniature ring was rigged up on the platforn with the regulation ropes, etc. Into this were led the boxers, blindfolded four at a lime, and then the fun'com menced. No world championehii could have been more exciting, and no burlesque more amusing7 than, to see these blind warriors stabbing the air .with vieions uppercuts and. swings and at the same time getting fearful blows from, unknown sources. There was no' lack of competitors, was in turn followed by Hall, by about the same interval. Three entries for the Shetland pony race made an exciting contest be- U-een two of them. The winners were: W. II. Reid, 1; S. Drinkall, 2; and J. i.Mc'Adoo, 3. The greased pole had been set for the first of the programme, but it took some time before the thoughts of the Juicy ham high up ou the top could tempt the contestants .to enter. Finally, however, about half a dozen good sports volunteered, aud for the remainder of the afternoon the crowd kept in shrieks of laughter by the ludicrous attempts of the ham- seekers to scale the gresy heights. The only way advance could be made was to rub the grease off bv repeated attempts, and eventually the ham was touched by Adolpson, the win- ner of second place in the Herald road race, and became his property. A pony race was put on in the place of the bicycle race. The side-spllttingest event of the whole programme was the lively Jit- t'ie race between one small -black greased pig and 250 boys. The boys won after a very close race, in .the course of which' the pig played foul, repeatedly tripping up his opponents and recipitating them in the mud. The boys got their money's worth of excitement and mud, .and .the crowd. ts share of mirth. The pig was fin- ally captured by George Chollock, one of the Herald newsboys, and he took it home Kith him. Knox Trimmed Travelers in Second Encounter by I Run The League Standing W.

For thrills the five-mile motorcycle race was tho real thing, Although there were but three entries, ail of them were with Indian machines, with experienced drivers. The 'track was at first thought to be too wet, but the weather man was patriotic for once, and the sun> and wind soon- dried things up, so that very lair time was 'possible. E. J. McKenzle took tlie lead from the start and held it. Bert Taylor followed, and Har- vey Schweitzer collected dust in tho rear. This was the order at the f lu- sh of the race. The time was 6.22% for the five miles. The little tots had a chance to compete To? a cup thrqugh the gen- erosity of R. put up a cup for the beat baby between the iges of four and twelve months. Sev- enteen entries were made, and keen nterest was taken by crowds of lad- es who inspected the babies. The udges were Miss Dainty and Miss Til- ey, and thoy finally, after a great difficulty, awarded the prize o Mrs. Prank Hedley's exhibit, eight months old, with second place to Sirs. and North Lethbridge played some good ball, .until the game was forfeit- ed by Manager Green of the Travel- lers, who kicked on a 'couple of de- cisions handed out by Umpire Shover. In the last of the third Inning North Lethbridge had two men on, and two down when L. Dunsworth came to bat and hit a long fly, which Umpire Shover called fair, scoring two rims. From the pomilar decision of the fans and players, it appears that the fiy was foul by several feet. The Trav- ellers kicked strenuously at this, and resulted in Manager Green being rul- ed from the field. In the next inn- ing Bertrand's curve fooled. T. Tur- cott, who, in trying to get away from a big out got hit and was given first base. This was too much for Green, who drew his men from the field af- ter a big squabble with the .umpire. The score was then 4-1. Knex 4; '-Travellers 3 The second game, however, was snappy all the way through and ful'1 of interest. Four double plays .hroughout the ten innings set up a record for this year. Sang, who was n the box for Knox, pitched a good steady game, the support which was accorded him was of the best quality. Livingstone played ou short for Knox, and seemed to delight in gathering in the hot ones which look- ed like hits.

The bicycle race and the four-leg- ged race for adults were called off for want of competitors. The latter was changed to a race '.for boys un- der 16, and caused much amusement. The winning team was John Burrell, Gordon Jliuiton and Willie Martin, and the second team consisted of A. ilellvena, Norman Whitman and Ce- cil Hutton. In the race for girls of 16.and un- there were 46 entries, so that -wo heats had to be run. The win- ler of .the first heat was Nora afac- leod. and the winner of'the second heat Pauline Stickle.v. On the decid- ing heat, 'Nora Slac'ieod won out after a very close race. The 220 adults race was an excep- tionally good one. Six entries were niade. The race- was close all the way' down, but at. about the middle of the couiao Campbell began to pull earn, consisting of: Kane. McDonald, and Collier, was second. Special mention is the mem- bers of the Gity Band, who turned out in full force, and though unavoid- ably late, madeoip for that by the ex- cellence and liberality of their music.
