Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 26, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, JULY 2fi, 1J>1� TIIE LETHBRrt)GE DAILY HERALD PAGE SEVEN THE BIG RoUo Kinsey Breaks World Record For Calf-Branding; 25 Calves in 9 Min., 3 Sec. When Rollo Kinsey of the Knight Sugar Co., stepped Into the corral In front of the Brand-stand packed to Its full capacity Thursday afternoon to rope against time In the calf roping and branding contest, the big crowd did not realize that It was about to see a world's record broken, neither did Kinsey, though he had a hunch there would be a'few seconds clipped off It. But when the hat was dropped after the branding Irons^ had sizzled on the 2Sth calf, and' it was announced that the Kinsey team had turned the trick In nine minutes and three seconds a cheer went up from 10,000 throats, it was the greatest bit of range worked ever pulled off before a stampede crowd. Incidentally It set a new Canadian record and a new world's record for the event, and unless that record is smashed to-day, when Joe Peters, winner of the event last year, essays to lower It, Kinsey will go back to Raymond, Alberta, with five centuries in cold cash In his pocket and the knowledge that he has oroven himself about the niftiest :alf roper in these parts. One Every 21.7 Seconds. And tho womlcrtul part of it was tliat tho crowd didn't realize how fast tlieao calves were being branded. It was better than one calf every half minute. It was one calf every 21.7 seconds. That Includes riding out to the . lioril, catching the calf by either one or two hind legs, no other way, shaking it up to tho flro where two buU-doggers take it and throw the rope off, holding tho calf until the red hot branding Irons in the hands of-two more men have done their worl:. It sounds simple, but just try it and see. Tho Kinsey team was composed of HoUo Kinsey, roper, Mike Hastings ot Cheyenne, and Tex Smith, of Leth bridge, bulldoggers, and IS. Smith and Dick Kinsey, brandere. The mark Kinsey had to beat was 16 minutes and 28 seconds made on Tuesday by Charlie Powell, of Brown ing, Mont. On Wednesday Sam Garrett didn'.t ctay with the.gamo long enough to rope, tlie wh6lo '25, so there was, uo award. But Kinsey was out l.o do consider ably better than K, minutes. For last year ho lost tho event to Joe Peters, and ho wanted to set a mark for Joo ' and his little horse "Weasel" to shoot at this year. Peters' time at the 191 stampodo hero was 11 minutes,' 19 seconds, while Kinsey's time last year was 12 minutes, 34 seconds. Kinsey's time yesterday was therefore 2% minutes better than Peters' winning time last year. Got Bad Start. The Raymond marvel started out bad yesterday by catching his first calf about tho body. It was n foul catch and the calf had to be let go. This took considerable time. But Clean to handle. Sold by all Drug* gists, Grocers and General Store*- from then on he was snaking them up to the fire with charming regularity. During tho whole procoedinge he made seven misses. Only once did two ot them come In succession and that was on tho 19tl\ calf. Kinsey used a now horse this year and it was nollcc-abio that ho did not mill tho cattle about so much as on his first attempt last year. That gained him a lot of time. Hie bulldoggers were aKso on the job and mighty few ot the precious seconds were wasted waiting lor the rope after tho calf was up to the (Ire. His team is understood to have been working together at tho Knight ranch at Raymond lately practicing for the event, and it is staled that out on the open range, out ot a herd of GOO they have sot up a mark that is almost one minute bettor than tho world's cljamplonship figure established yesterday. Plenty of- Excitement. To the real etampede tana, who like to ace action just as they see it on tho open range, tho branding con-tost yesterday was along worth going miles to see. 13ut they wltno^ssed many other thrilling exhibition,? of frontier stuff, and it there was one man who went home dissatisfied ho would be a curiosity. So flmoothly did everything go that at six o'clock the program was over as scheduled for tho afternoon and the crowd went away to satisfy the inner man before coming back for more. There was only one kick the crowd had, and that was tho tact that the buUdogging was pulled off before many were in the stands. And if there is one thing a stampede fan likes more than another it is to see the bustera fling themselves from the back of a racing horse on to tho neck ot a wild steer whicli is running for its life and by pure bulldoggedness bend the 8teer''3 neck until tho critter tails to the ground. That's tho stuff tho old timers talk about. Mike Hastings, who won the event here last year, cinched first place again yesterday for the third time, turning the trick in ?>[!% seconds. That is 16 seconds under his record established hero last year. Three Persons' Ride. Tom Three Persons, who is one Indian who has the honor of iiaving ridden for royalty, always furnishes some excitement for the crowd. On Wednesday it took the form ot being piled from Tommy, 'i'estcrday he varied It by plunging into the fence in front ot the grandstand with .Tack Rabbit. This horae, which was turned loose in tho finals in tho evening has a hesitation style of bucking. When ho took to the fence after Three Persons had made a great ride from the chute across the track. Tommy did a quick change stunt by transferring himself to the top rail. It brought the crowd to its feet. The rider was later given another horse and placed third in tho day's bucking. Slim Parkor, of Medicine Hat, took the first money and Walt Whitney, the previous day's winner, got second place. Announcer Allen Hurt. In the finals ot the bucking competition, which took place during the evening program, Slim Allen, of Wilcox, Ariz., the very efficient announcer of tlie stampede events, picked Reservation. Reaervatlon ie more assertive than reserved, and after Slim had made a fine ride across the track tho horse turned quickly to keep trbm craaliing into the fence, and Allon was thrown, wrenching his shoulder. He was game, however, and after a little attention from the first aid boys he took up the wprk ot announcing again as It nothing had happened. Allen, is a typical cowboy and he can both ride and announce to perfection. A Serious Accident. The only other accident during the The Great War Ve terans day was in tho preliminary riding in the buckinluSt. sa Torast., 0>i. Paris, July 26.-The Ukrainian government has announced it' abandoned Its claim for Bessarabia, says a Bucharest dispatch to the German press, transmitted by the Zurich correspondent of the Matin, as a result diplomatic relations between Rumania and the Ukraine have been resumed. Tlie peace treaty between, the Central Powers and Rumania ceded the Bessar.:ibla to Rumania In return for Oobrudja. mm brand ��^^i POFFEB^ l'lH|]^un> Douglas 8.C0.1TP { Free Demonstration Nabob Dc Luxe Tea 1 OF Nabob Vacuum Packed Coffee BY MISS FERGUSON AT GEO.
