Towards the end of the first half the piav became des ultorr, and Burmis, though pressing. Jailed to score From a breakaway Cooper made a fine Individual run, and capped it with a well taken goal Padgett made a fine effort to saie, but it was bejond his reach Half time arrived with the score standing 1 0 In favor of Lille. When the second half was resumed It was noticed that Bunnis had re-ar- ranged their team, Sloan playing centre-forward, Skilling in centre half and Farnworth at full back. From the kick-off ic was evident that Bur mis meant business A nice run by the left wing brought the Ulle goal in danger, Fraaer shot, but Dawson clear ed brilliantly The Lille had breakaway, and from a fine run by the left wing, the ball waj crested over, and a scrimmace ensued In front of the Burmis goal, from which Cooper netted number iwo for At this point Burmis began to get des- lerate, and Sloan, adopting ruahmg tactics, which had the desired effect, the Lille defence became demoralized, Fraaer scored with a, fine low drtve, which Dawgon stopped, hut failed to hold The bail being ajaln kicked off, Btirmis kept up the pres- and Sloan, getting the ball from a wheeled quickly, and shot taking Dawton by stlrpriie At this point of the game It was Burmis and Burmla only, they simplj plajed Ulle off their feet The Burmis de- fence had the Lille attack well in hand, and the stray runs the} were easily repulsed Burmis forwards kept np the attack, and four successive corners fell to their lot, but they failed to produce the much-sought for goal On time being called the score stood, Burmis2, Lille t file following players lined up tor ttetr respective teams.

The way Mr Asauith explains the defeat of the favorites is this- Leth. bridge plajed five games in six dajs Port William played but three The locals were, therefore, not In the best of condition to go into the last and hardest game at the series to play the Steady game which was necessary to grind out a victory At that ihey played better for the first half than might have been expected, and push- ed the game to the Fort i territory all the way. Just after the first half, however Easton let the ball in ou the merest fluke, and this signal of the departure of hick, comlEg os top of fojr hard victories, was enough to take the heart out of the boys, which they needed to carry them through. Mr Asquith, who inows football of old, says that the Lethbridge team played better ball than many profes- sional aggregations he has seen per- form In the Old Country. He does not think the best team won in spite of comments to the contrary He con- siders both the P-rmce Alberts and the Norwoods, both, of which teams Leth- bridge defeated before meeting up with the Port William brigade, be ter footballers than the champion The bojs made a name for themselve in Winnipeg, and are not only a cred to the city, but a food advertisemea as well.

IMARQUARD LOST WHEN NEAR MARK t IF qiANT .PITCHER COULD: HAVE WON ONE MORE HE WOULD HAVE EQUALED LUBY'S RECORD Rube the tccord of of the !sW club in 1888 Keefe pitched and won 19 consecutive games That ,feat was then, and is now aifar better record than that made by ihe present Giant, for the reason that in.those diys the pitcher was notr 'permitted to be changed evcept by sickness or consent of the umpire. They also had Onlv a couple of pitchers on the staff then, as com- pared with several at present, ao that the record of Keefe was the best of the pair, as his 19 full and com- plete games, none of them bob-tails, so that by many baseball 'authorities tne record of Keefe was the best in every, respect, Missed Record Mark But "Rube" missed the mark set, by John Lub) ot the'1800 National league club, when he won 30 straight, which ,is the best record ever made in major leagues One rec- ord is that of Thomas Loyett, after- ward a BrooWy prtchcr, who won 21 consecutive games while pitching for Bridgeport, then a member of tho Eastern hich he did in 188J, But Lubv, in June, after having lost eight games, won the 20, and probably would have won more had the season not ended October. 3. The reputed record of James Mc- Cormick, 24 m 1886, is not correct, as he never won the number of games he has been credited with. His best record was 13 that but in 188J ic had a strm? of 11 straight, while n 1884 he won 15 straight The record made by Radbourne in 1881, when that wonderful Providence twirler unaided won the pennant? ittet Charlej Sweeney 'had deserted us team, is one never to be en Radbourne won 18 consecutive ames in 18 days Imagine a pitcher f the present asked o do-that. A record not one in a tiun- rcd at the present day fans knows nythmg about, wa? that of Li, ushnwn, a iclt-hander, back Jn 1881, hen he won 13 consecutive Mctocics, len lost a I0-inning game 3 to 1, hen started in again and won 18 more victories, making 26 out of 27 consecutive games, an average'oi 963, the best ever recorded in organized baseball The record was made while Cushman was pitching for Milwaukee, then of -.Warner should have goua to Ray mond. Raymond had n couple of new men, Reid Card held down third base, Drto Selman second, and Dels Selman was at right field O'Brien in the box, and Skouson -behind the hat played good ball, had not good support, either on the bases "or on the" field. Johnson 6a first played his usual good game. Gorrel, the spltball, twirled for Warner, and Luker received. Both did. excellent work. Berg -was moved dovvri to second base, and' this was the only change in the line-up For the first six innings, Warner played ail 01- rorless game. The men on the field plajed big league ball and everybody was in.liis pla'ce at the right Umd. The game resulted in a victory for Warner, the score-being 12-5. This ictorv puts -ft arner in a place where. it will 'be impossible 'for them to lose the southern division of the league. Cardston -plays at Warner to- day, :and a close game is looked for.
