RoHo Kinsey of the Knight Sugar stepped Into the corral In front of the grand stand packed to Its full capacity Thursday afternoon to rope against time In the calf roping and branding the big crowd did not realUe that It was about to see a worlds record neither did though he had a hunch there would be afew seconds clipped off But when the hat was dropped after the branding Irons had siuled on the 2Bth and It was announced that the Kinsey team had turned the trick In nlni and three seconds a cheer went up from It was the greatest bit of range worked ever pulled off before a stampede Incidentally It set a new Canadian record and a new record for the and unless that record Is smashed when Joe winner of the event last essays to lower Kinsey will go back to with five cen turies In cold cash In his pocket and the knowledge that he has 3roven himself about the niftiest alf roper In these One Every And the wonderful part of it was that the crowd didnt realize how fast these calves were being It was better than one calf every half It was one calf every sec That includes riding out to the catching the calf by either one or two hind no other shak ing it up to the fire where two bull doggers take It and throw the rope holding the calf until the red hot branding irons in the hands oftwo more men have done their It sounds but just try it ana The Kinsey team was composed or Rollo Mike of and Tex of Leth and Smith and Dick The mark Kiusey had to beat was 16 minutes and 28 seconds made on Tuesday by Charlie of Brown On Wednesday Sam Garrett didnt ctay with the game long enough to the whole so there no But Kinsey was out to do consider ably better than 16 For lasf year he lost the event to Joe and he wanted to set a mark for Joe and his little horse Weasel to shoot at this Peters time at the 1917 stampede here was 11 19 while Klnseys time last year was 12 minutes 34 Kinseys time yesterday was therefore 2 min utes better than Peters winning time last Got Bad The

was on the 19th Kinsey used a now horse this year and it was notice able that ho did not mill tho cattle about BO much as on his first at tempt last That gained him a lot of Hie bulldoggers were also on the Job and mighty few of the precious seconds were wasted waiting for the rope after the calf was up to the His team is understood to have been working together at the Knight ranch at Raymond lately practicing for the and it is stated that out on the open out of a herd of 600 they have set up a mark that is one minute bet ter than the worlds championship fig ure established Plenty To the real stampede who like to see action just as they see it the open the branding con test yesterday was along worth go ing miles to But they witnessed many other thrilling exhibitions of frontier and If there was one man who went home dissatisfied he would be a So smoothly did everything go that at six oclock the program was over as scheduled for the afternoon and the crowd went away to satisfy the inner man before coming back for There was only one kick the crowfl and that was tho fact that the bulldogging wai pulled off before many were in the And if there is one thing a stampede fan likes more than an other it is to see the busters fling themselves from the back of a racing horse on to the neck of a wild steer which Is running for its life and by pure bulldoggedness bend the steers neck until the critter falls to the Thats tho stuff the old timers talk Mike who won the event here last cinched first place again yesterday for the third turning the trick in 39 That Js 16 seconds
