Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 27, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta 27, 1910 THK LETHBRFDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE HiBEE GOOD RACES AT MATINEE fUP. SPOILED THE CROWD RUNNERS ALLTOTHE MERRY That pestiferous old party, .Inn. Pluv. for short, is always taking tho joy out of life, and he did it yester- day quite nicely 1'or the bunch of racing fans who wanted to hiu them- selves to Henderson Park fair grounds to watch the yee-gees work out. Hut if he put a crimp in the crowd, like- wise the gate receipts, he couldn't do a thing with the races, and they were iworth a thousand dollar crowd where the exact amount was calculated by the experts to be somewhere in the neigh- borhood of ?28.25. Ask George Hatch, he handled the roll. It was tough luck on the promoters. They had a nice card arranged anil things went oil smoothly, so that there 'Would have beorn a good time had there been enough present to keep the grandstand seats warm. The only disappointment was that Homer Mac wasn't there. He wont lame a couple, of days ago, after recovering from a limping spell that has kept him out of the big circuit this year but tho it a crowd for convenience seem to mind. Eight races were run off, two harness and six running, and they were all good. Nobody was pulling ponies for the sake of a, rake off on the betting. It was a case of "let 'or go" every foot of the way. The track was ii great shape, too, tliough no records ware broken. The first racy was free for all, with three entries. Stewart's horse lialduo, with Furman no copped the money, taking the 1st'and 3rd heats quito handily. In the'2nd heat O.U.W. with Stewart up was given a Hying start and was never headed. He is a lijitl actor, and refused to score like ii gentlemanly ,horse should, but when he got going with the others in the rear lie was a comer. This horse has n mark of 2.12 as a three year old but his cranky habits have brought him many masters and no one seemn to be able to get the psychological view- point that will make him score down the track for a right and proper start. Bonnell's Pathfinder with Jack Wales as'pilot came second each trip under the wire. He was game but couldn't quite make-the grade. The other harness race brought out five green horses, mostly coits and they went two nice heats. .Tim Barber, belonging to Furman with Furman up took the first lap, while Niclt Car- ter, owned by Moen of Vancouver, owner driving, took second. Carno entered the race but was distanced in "Matty" Begins To PulHiie "Cinci's" From The Cellar the first heat. One sad was intimated 10 the crowd that someone had robbud a milk waggon, but Carno is a nice looking liorsu, though not exactly of the race variety. Meeks, Kinsey and Do Loss Lund of Raymond, the old rivals of the south, furnished the excitement in the run- ning events. They had brought in their best from Magrath and the crowd scared away by the rain missed some mighty fine going. In the ii-Sth dash Lund's Sllvertip made the fam- ous Muck's mare Esther L. extend hersBlf to win in seeouds. Two of Kinsey's string fouyht it out in the 3-8th dash, Flossie Johnston winning by'a lip from Dr. Tom in 40 seconds. "The quarter mile dash was taken in another hair raising finish by Kin- sey's Jack from Lund's find in 20 sec- onds. Kinsey again won the bacon in a half mile dash with his Lillie F'ergus- Luud's Silvcrtip. It was a great race. Two great Indian races were pulled off, Henry Bells, a famous old gray that has won many a race in th" south, winning both times for his lor and master, by sheer strength and sticktoltiveness.

Livingston LeBlanc Hedley Preise 7 Kenny -17 Henderson 6 Ascroft 12 Rose IB 21 An interesting schedule of closely contested games nave been played off eliminating by the 21 point score, which brought L. Dunsworth. reyre senting Knox courts against Raworth of St. Augustln's. The game last night was fast and furious with bril- liant plays, DuuGworth taking an early lead and maintaining it after the first game. it was a case of youth and speed against generalship and exper- ience, which finally closed the contest after many deuce games with youth the conqueror, in points. In the semi-finals Raworth won from Toombs by default and Dunsworth brought Murray down to defeat-to the tune of Murray exhibited much speed in the initial stages .of .the con- test, but his terrific side :line Iciriren began to go askew and Dunsworth nosed out his speedy court mate. WILLIAMS, TENNIS CHAMP, FALLS BEFORE MORRIS of the greatest upsets recorded in the' quarter century of LpngwoocT Tennis history cccurred in the second round of the singles tour- nament today -when C. J. Griffin of San Francisco defeated R. Norris Wil- liams bf Cambridge, Mass., the former national champion Williams plainly showed lack of practice.' The only department where he was at all formidable was his service, hut "even there he made a maximum number of double faults for match.-His volleys .wore weak ami his game overhead erratic. Who is the manager of the Old baseball iquad? Since Harry Nlcholjon left the fold the team has been without a head, and now Commerce wants a return game but doesn't know lo whom to apply. The Com- merce bunch thinks Lethbridge should go out there to do a little pastlmlng. So, up to .you to. pick leader and call up Mr. Brown at Here's your'chance; your hurry?

Raymond, July celebration held yesterday, Pioneer Day, under the direction of'the stake primary assoc- iation, was very successfully carried out. There was a good attendance both at the morning and afternoon at- :ractidns. At nine o'clock the various floats for the parade assembled at the opera house, and half an hour later be- gan their mavch through the main streets of the town. The parade brought home to the public very vivid- y the life of the Mormon pioneers of 1847, and with prairie carts, the Mormon battalion, Indians, etc., in the pageant, a striking picture was created. The service at the opera house was largely attended. The program was especially planned to recall the trials and vicissitudes of the pioneers, their social and religious life and their place n history as empire-builders. A num- ber of pioneers were present and spoke briefly. Thomas G. Romney acted as chairman, and Mrs. Allen, stake president, gave 'a short opening address. At Victoria Park, in the afternoon a program of sports was held. Al- though the attendance was not as arge as at some celebrations held lere, the program was thoroughly en- oyed. The children's races, novelty races and a number of other events formed a good afternoon of enjoyment. All efforts to locate the perpetrator of the theft of from the box of- Ice of Hie Opera House last night, lave thus far proven .fruitless. A number of clues have been run down vith no material results, and in the neantime show men, theatre-manage- ment and the general public are still liseusslng the coolly planned and clev- irly executed game.
