CONTRACT JUMPING HURTING PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL Throngs of people suUg'iit refuge from the heat yesterday by going in bathing at the lake. The biggest I of the season took advantage I of the cooling waters and an exc'el- to attempt a feat which probably not been accomplished at the i lake' belore Vincent Parks of the JY.M.C.A., yesterday afternoon dived off the west wall of the InJcc and swam to the eastern extremity in 39 in in. and-20 sec. The lake is said to te a little over a mile in length ami makes a nice little water mara- thon. The swimmer was accompanied a canoeist. His next feat will be an attempt tn swim-the'length of the lake and back and then he will issue a chal- lenge'tn all comers for a race. As well as being an expert 'swim- mer Vincent Parks is an accomplish- ed diver and tho lake doesn't con- tain anything high enough to suit his am-bition as a pinnacle for diving purposes. Ball players who jump their con- tracts or threaten to jump them are the greatest enemies of the national game and of all other players. Scarcely any of the players realize this- fact, but it is the truth and every careful observer in the country knows it to he so. Baseball is a sport which depends for its success on local sentiment and loyalty-df the fans' for one or the other, While the game is a splendid spectacle in ite-If, the fact reniains that the ele- ment of-contest and the desire of the fans to have their team win is the mcfit important thing about it from a drawing standpoint. The fans like to, think of their favorites as heroes, who. are out there trying their best to bring home the victory.

REASON'S FOR USING "Alberta's Pride99 BEER AT MEAL TIMES "ALBERTA'S PRIDE BEER" is a concentrated liquid food. Tea and Coffee are in no wise fo6ds. In countries where beer is used as a table bever- age, dyspepsia is practically unknown. So is stomach trouble in general. In Germany beer is more frequent- ly drank than at meal time. x The prejudice against strong stimulants lias in no Wise impaired the value of "Alberta's Pride the most nutritious of all liquid foods. This beer is absolutely pure. This is no idle claim, but one that we can back up by proof. Coine to our Brewery and we will show you. To those who value strong digestive organs we advise "Alberta's Pride Beer" and we recommend it to convalescents because it is a tonic. THE LETHBRIDGE BREWING MALTING COMPANY, Limited PHONE 554 ;
