He watched the S. O. E. trim the Callies by two. goals At that a pretty, stifl hreeze: was blowing But at all other matches the weather has been either wet or boisterously raw and this no doubt lias been instrumental in putting a hamper on the attendances, .-which havo been mighty small, even con- sidering the inclination of the people at'these 'times to think of more ser- ious matters. The season got oil to a poor start and it will take an ex- traordinary interesting situation to briiig the usual folowers of >the game diuvn to the Athletic Park now. The Sons won the contest last in the first half, a half in which they 'outplayed their oppon- ents and earned what they acquired. To Bestwick belongs the honor, of scoring the Sons hrace of goals, 'and hoth counters were headed in by the Sons outeide right, the first on a pass from Stowe and the second on a rebound after the ball had struck Dunlop, the Callies goalie, in" the face. Turn The Callies. started in to push things in the second half and a hard battle. was, constantly seen going on at various quarters, of the field, hut mostly around the S. 'O. E. goal, which gave the Sons goal keeper, Parsons, an opportunity to display some of the cleverest goal tending that hns been shown in a football match here at any time. He was possessed with the knack of being Johnny on the spot -with startling consistency, and made many .hair- breadth saves which even brought forth rounds of approbation from the Callles quarters Parson" it as abh held .up by the backs, Nesbitt and Wallice, "Nesbitt in particular shone forth-witu his fancy back-heeling and general rangy work. Calliet Score The Callies deserved a goal for the amount of pressing they were' doing in this half, but when the lonely tal- did come, it! was somewhat of a present. The ball was kicked goal- ward. Nesbitt intercepted but fum- bled the ball as Knox came charging in. Parsons left his goal :wide open in going to Lee's assistance Thej both mixed it up between them "and Knor, gliding by, had'a clear field ahead, making the net with case. Notes on the Game There ware two daddy-lons-legs staging flashes 'of-briliiant Lee and Nesbitt. Lee wassail over the shop, and Nespttt's heeling was not only, spectacular, but. very .effect- ive. outside right Improvement to the Sons' team work, 'Fourth defeat for the Calliesi Third time to fall to the -prowess of file S. O E. Miss VIOLET ASQUITH Daughter of the British Premier, whose engagement to M. B. Carter, Mr. Asquith's private secretary, is announced. Brennan, right-half for the Callies, Is said-to be one of the headiest play- ers in Lethbridge, but 'he is not .in good training. However, he had., his opponents guessing. lp_st; night just the'same. Bennett, the Sone' centre-hatf, seemed to be'1 carrying an order that read after this fashion: "Keep after Willie Waning, and give all your at- tention to him." Home's rushes were .outstanding. The Callles new acquisition' improv- ed as the game grew old. 'Chesty" Parsons was centre of at- traction between the posts .in the last half Tlft was he handled the light nlng that the Callles directed at him was a treat DAVIS BREAKS RECORD Columbus, Ohio, July Davis at this city broke the world's motor- record for 100 miles on a dirt rack, here, according to an. announce- ment of the'official timers Dai is' time was 87 minutes 434-5 seconds.

Speaking of Speed If the Mike Gitib'ons-Packcy M'cFar- land fight is pulled off in .Minnesota, we-trust it will be held at the Twin City ''speedway. This would give Packey a better opportunity of dis- playing his footwork. Likewise, we like to see how far Packey could run before -Mike would catch up with him.

Indications are for Best Year in Alberta's History The Mberta branch of the Domin- ion Meteorological Survey depart- ment issues a vmy encouraging wea ther and crop report tor the month of June. It gives the tota-1 precipi- tation for June in the Lethbridge district as, 4 84 inches, which bow- el ec, does not include the raimihlch fell on the last evening of the month bringing the total for the month to 5 inches Of the weather and crop conditions geneialls the report states "Precipitation has been, abundant, and well especially over the southern areas, where in many localities exceptionally heavy rains have fallen; frequent thunder storms bringing the aggregate amount for the month to well above normal "The temperature on flie whole was most favorable to growth, the warm and open character of the latter l.alf of the month proving most beneficial- by counteracting to an extent the tarding tendency of .the earlier days] The month cannot be classed as nor- mal, as the deviation of the two; portant agricultural tactors, rairi and sunshine, ha' thrown it a little out of line, but the plentiful supply of-moisture, will no doubt offset the. early deficiency of. sunshine in face of 'the many sunny days to come.
