Mag-rath Stirling Won Two Events Yesterday Stirling. July Day broke bounds. The score is no indication clear and bright and the colouration of the Mormons had nothing to mar Us success. A big crowd were fathered together and everybody came to en joy themselves. In the morning' SUi ling beat Raymond at basketball and in the afternoon the big attraction was the ball game between Stirling and Now Dayton. Play was close all through and in the last four innings extremely Hotu teams had a good ci-owd of rooters and ex- citement at times ran high. There, are players on both' teams eligible foi city leagues and both tennis should have beun in the Lothbrldge District League. Stirling won 1S-17. 1 he Moe battery was a.strong unit in the New Dayton team as was the work of Anplemaii on 1st and King on 3rd.

In the fifth Dayton went out with four men on 2nd and 3rd. In the 6th of the play. Brrors were niimerom but, for amateur teams without any IcaKuo aspirations Hho play was ex- cellent. In the relay race at the close of the game a New Dayton runner was intercepted by a coif on the track .and as n consequence Stirling won. The following is the line-up. NEW Moe, G.

But the invaders were doomed to disap- pointment for ties came out at the little end of a score of 12-S The bit, see- e is no criterion to use in estimating the real worth of the contest hovieier as it realh was Interesting and full of nerve-racking moments. The stand and grounds thronged, and 'fully twenty-five liundred people witnessed the game, ch will go donn in hlston as one of Magratb's greatest triumphs. _ Tate graced the mouud for 'Leth- bndge when the game opened with the invincible Pulley on the receiving end. For MagrathGray did the fir- Ing with Ott behind the hickory. In the field were many familiar faces in both of class tried Without doubt Magrath had the most formidable line-up she hits ever assembled for many season; .the Old Guard of the Metropolis ware in uniform bui evidently the fates were against them and as hicfe; would have it they fell a prey 10 thej terrible onslaught of the lads inj green T weal to ba' ihej first .men up landed on ihe pics of Tata's delivery and before they were _4t finally sent to, the taJi timber, three runswere chalked up on the credit Eide official records.! .Tate.appeared'to be in poor form, and! his to easy pict-j ings for Ibe Jlagrjth swstiers. batted him ail oier ga ad errors .tlie conflict would have leen the cleanest exhibition of bal een in Magrath Without doub't the ,ethbridge players were having their f day but This of course, did not nake the humiliation any sweeter.

They have Qiproved -wonderfully and.are worthy Jf'.the' respect of any team" in -the outhern country. A feature was -the slick double (the only one in the .me) play from Pulley to "Ran, and .Nicholson, putting two runners out This performance was warmly' ap- plauded. Before the game concluded, Tate, Seidenbecher and Clark had all tried their hand at twirling for the Lethbridge team.
