New Dayton With Gorrill In Box-Snow or Lund For Locals It looks like either Lund or Snow for'the mound for Lethbridgo in the big battle with Now Duyton in tho local ball lot tonight at 6.15. The locals are out to win to make up for their defeat at the hands of Carmangay on the last holiday game. New Dayton is coming up with the strongest team they can gather together along the Coutts line and with Gorrill eaolng them over they think there isn't much to it but the shouting. Bond of Lethbridgo caught Gorrill at Magrath the other night when the New Dayton pitcher plastered one on Magrath's eyebrow, and he says Gorrill has so much smoko that Magrath was swinging at them whilo ho was returning the ball to the pltchor's box. But Lethbridge had Gorrill's number in the game at New Dayton some time ago, and the locals hope they can do it again. The local team is stepping out with the idea of putting Carmangay to the tall grass in tho return game at Carmangay which will be played on Wednesday afternoon, August 1st. A big crowd is going up from Lethbridge for the fray to make up for what Lethbridge didn't do for Carmangay on the 11th. Champion, July 16.-Champion today administered the kayo to the Carmangay boys in tho tournament held at Champion, betwnon Champion, Carmangay, Stavely and Vulcan. Tho teams had played one game previous to today with Carmangay winners, at Carmangay. After Champion winning from Stavely, tho Carmangay team was too much for the Champion boys in ono afternoon. Today, however, both teams were fresh nnd Champion came out winners. Twice during the game was Hip score tied and an extra inning had to be played to decide the game. Siler, who was married on July 7, played his usual, good game, a smile on'his face all tho time. The Starr brothers were also in evidence, as well as "Alex," Barney and Lewis brothers. With the score 10-10 at the end of the ninth, Carmangay went to bat, and they certainly meant business, scoring two runs. Fortler came to Champion with two men down and two on bases and with a good drive brought home two runs and got to second base, which again tied the score. Siler came up to bat, his face all smiles as per usual and put tho finish to the game with a drive past the centre fielder which got him a home run. Well, done, Si, you've sure got the goods and know how to deliver them. In the second game, Stavely vs. Vulcan, Stavely proved far too good for tho Vulcanites, winning in easy fashion with a scoro of 13-1. Tomorrow the two winners battle it out, the game is called at 2 o'clock. Go it, "SI." He used a pebble in his day, to keep bis mouth moist- WE use IGLEY5 CAN'T STOP RUSSIANS. London, July 16.-Tho Times correspondent at headquarters of the southwestern armies cables via Pet-rograd: "Tho most gratifying feature has been the failure of tho Germans to checkmate the strength of tho Hits-slan army and so dispose their forces.

"But tho war and the had weather hurt the show business and I received notice that my contract was to be cancelled. That would leave mo out in the cold, so I bought the circus. "As owner of the show, nnd not an employe; I couldn't see where Jones and Curley should be entitled to any part of the gross receipts. So I discharged them." Willard confided that ho weighed in the neighborhood of 260 pounds, which is about 30 pounds above hU usual fighting weight, and that with a little training will be able to defend his honors in a, 20-round contest. "It isn't true that I have refused to box either Carl Morrla or Fred Pulton," Wlllavd's letter continued. "Why should I bar them it the public wants me to meet either ot them.
