St. Paul-Toledo, postponod, ratal. The pairs competition is providing some very close and exciting games. It is too early yot to make much of a guess at the winners, but with a little luck Bob Scott might pull through. There are, of courso, others. Dick Ward is likely to run a bard race and Scott will have to Keep his weather eye on him. Jim Peacock, of course, might upset the calculation of both, and then, Bill Adams ha* by no means given up hope, but the other night a dark horse waa beard to wonder what be would do with tho prize as he already had a pair of bowls.

TI12 Xew Dayton team was always favorites among the vfsitors here for Earl Gorrill, hurler do. luxe of the southern crew, formerly slanted them over for Lethbridge in tho days when Dad Wheeler piloted the locals. Just who will pitch for the locals it is hard to say. . Jt is likely, however, that the Gillis boys will be back in harness and if so, .Joe will do the box work. Joe hasn't lost a start for the locals to date. The Baseball Club is just waiting to hear from Magrath as to the exact date of the big stampede here next month, to start arrangements for the baseball tourney now proposed to take the place of the week of baseball which was proposed eome time ago. It is expected that about oight teams will enter the tourney, which will give seven games in the three days. Next Saturday evening's fixture with Turin promises to bring in a monster crowd for on that night the Flora Bella feature nt the Majestic is due to'draw them for miles around. This show is tho best since the Red Rose played in Lethbridge, and the double attraction will be a great magnet for the Saturday evening crowd that looks to Lethbridge as the .Mecca of the South.
