ALL ABOARD FOR Ball Club Lining Up Fast Bunch -Rutledge Will Be in the Box RAYMOND WINS. Raymond, July 28.-Raymond defeated Magrath in a game of ball here on Saturday, tho final score being 8 to 5. The game, which as a whole was loosely played, was featured by the pitching of Lang. Lefty was right in his glory, striking out fifteen men, and as a batter he was right there too, a triple and two doubles were credited him. His support had an off day, costly errors woro repeatedly made. An exceptionally bad hole was found at short, the Raymond batsmen soon discovered it and seemed to play for that territory. Fairbanks and Hlcken did the battery stunt for Raymond. Tho former, who has been out ot the game for a tew years pitched a good game. His support was good. Brewerton replaced him in the ninth. Ott umpired the game. The crowd was not large as the grounds are too far from town. If tho games were staged on tho Roadway diamond the crowds undoubted-I ly would be larger and tho receipts ' would be greater too, even it the grounds are not enclose-1. GOLF Chick Brans gives the following valuable hints to golf beglnnors: If I were a beginning golfur, there are Jnst a few things I would do, and I would let all details come under tho word praotlie. While practising, one can discover for himself many little golden rules that may not be precisely applicable to the other man's game, but will suit your's exactly. These are the tew Instructions I would give to the golfer Just startlag. First-learn to grip the club In the fingers, never In the paltn. Second-Use (square stance for full shots; open for halt and shorter. Third-Learn to left your clubhead form Its right anglo with Itn imaginary line, so that neither heel nor toe is off the ground: Fourth-In swinging, make the descent and ascent the same on both drawing back and follow through. Fifth-Cultivate the forward press. If you begin with the rules you are bound to make progress; but I add one more, the sixth, and that Is practise. Furthermore, it will give me great pleasure to explain fully any point in these rules that a reader does not understand. Things are looking bright for the big game tomorrow when Lethbridge goes to Carmangay. The make-up of the team will not be decided definitely till the meeting of the executive and players tonight at the Elks Club, but fans may be certain that the strongest line-up of tfte season will oppose the Carmangay professionals. Rutledge will pitch, and it is Just possible his brother may be on the receiving end, though Walsh will probably be available to do the receiving. The Auto CluE> promises to do Itself proud on this, its first excursion. The entertainment committee has lists In the hands of each member of the committee: J. T. Qraham, chairman, A. G. Baalim, D. A. Simpson, R. R. Davidson and D. H. Elton. See any of these men, Mr. Auto Owner, put your name down and let them know if you can take any passengers. The club has contracted to take the ball team, so some extra space will be needed. The big crowd will have an opportunity to pats through part of the country that has the best crops of the south. It will be a fine outing. The return trip to Lethbridge will be made after aix o'clock.

"Yes, I'm dropping him a Hue."- Boston TrauscripL  EVEN AS YOU AND I  A pitcher there was, and he left his home, Even as you and I; With his nerve and his mitt and his ivory dome- Even as you and I. In a major league he would seek his fame; And the world's respect he would soon obtain- Even of you and I. He worked him out in the summer's sun, He sweat like you and I; And miles and miles he was forced to run, 'Till he thought he'd surely die, For all the fat dwelt not In his bean. The manager labored to make him lean, So he'd for the opening game be keen- Keen as you and I. The season opened on a balmy day, Even for you and I; The crowd went wild when the umpa said play, Even did you and I. He toed the slab with an air of grace; The first ball over the plate found place- That pellet was'knocked Into Infinite space, FaBt as a bird could fly. They took him out and they sent him home, With hla nerve and his mitt and his Ivory ^Some, And his well-framed alibi. Now he has a Job where the pumpkins grow. And BayB to himself as he wields the hoe: , "I'd of won that game It they'd give me a show."- Even as you and i. - MADE JIM BAGBY Did you ever hear ot a ball player breaking his arm' and then jumpii-.g") from the ordinary class to a star ! pitcher? No, you probably never heard of such a thing, yet this is exactly what happened to Jim Bagby in 1913, and at present Sergeant Jim is Cleveland's leading moundsman. The accident to Bagby was described by Tim Hendryx of the New York Yankees. "If it hadn't been for me, Bagby would never have been heard of as a pitcher," announced Tim. "Jim and I are old pals and former teammates, you know. Well, one hot day down in New Orleans I was playing second base and Bagby centre field. We both chased after a short; fly ball. Bagby stretched out his hands to make the catch and I bumped into him. His right hand landed in the middle of my back and, of course, the ball dropped safe. After the collision Jim said there was something the matter with his wrist. Ho had to quit the game, and when a physician had made an examination it was discovered that the large bone had been fractured Just above the wrist. "When Bagby's arm was able to stand the strain he began pitching and In a short, time it was apparent to everybody that he had more stuff than ever before. I .made a great pitcher out of Bagby when I broke his arm. If ypu don't believe me, ask Jim himself." Bagby was, of course, interviewed for it verification of this statement and admitted everything except that the broken arm made him a better pitcher. "I always could'pitch and knew that somo day I'd be heard from, but I'll never forget that game if I live to be a million," Bagby said. "It was on July 17, 1913, In New Orleans. I happenod to be played centre field and, as Hendryx says, we both chased after a short fly. The only difference In Tim's story and tho true facts is that instead of my right hand coming In contact with his back it landed on his head." To look at Bagby's right arm ono would hardly suspect him of being a pitcher. His arm is long, thin, slender and the muscles soft and pliable. TO CONTINUE POLO IN PHILADELPHIA Although many of the polo players ot Philadelphia will soon be leaving to join their regiments, there will be in accordance with the desire of tho commanding general of, the eastern department, more strenuous polo played in Philadelphia and vicinity this summer than in many years. The three polo-clubs, Bryn Mawr, Phlla-delphla Country club and Devon, have formed a central committee,' ot which E. Lowber Stokes, who captained the All-Philadelphia team last October, Is chairman. There is, a-sufficient number ot older and married players who are not able to leave business at the first call, and of boys under nineteen years of age. to assume a season of (hot competition. 8ERS GOT ONLY FAIR SHARE Jack Curley Defends System Whereby Willard Paid Out 40 Per Cent, of Earnings to make him feel the offer was genuine, $1000 moro to get Johnson to South America, ?1000 to rush me to Cuba to try to induce Johnson to come to Mexico, etc. Besides, a $3*,-000 guarantee had to be furnished Johnson before he would step into the ring. "Now, don't you think Webber and Frazce. were entitled to 10 per cent, each of Wlllard's earnings for three years? The 10 per cent. I received was not soft at the best; it amounted to not over $10,000 a year." (By Ringside) Chicago, July 30.-Jack Curley, deposed manager of tho heavyweight champion. Jess Willard, in defending thb system whereby Wlllard's managers got 40 per cent, of the boxer's receipts, quoted the following precedents : John L. Sullivan paid Billy Madden, Al Smith and J. Dunn each, as he was handled by them in turn. 50 per cent. James J. Corbett paid Billy Brady 50 per cent. Later George Considine got 40 per cent, of his ring and safe earnings. Bob Fitzsimmons paid Martin Julian 50 per cent. * James J. Jeffries paid Billy Delaney and Billy Brady 50 per cent. Jack Johnson paid Sam Fitzpatrick 40 per cent., and in tho Jeffries fight paid George Little 30 per cent. Why He Matched Willard With Johnson "Regarding my associations with Willard, I will go back to Jack Johnson's days, when the big black fought Choynski, George Gardner, Marvin Hart, Stanley Ketchel, Tommy BuriiB, Jim Jeffries, Jim Flynn and then Willard," said Curley. "Here is my sum-up, and I've always held to this therefore, my association with Willard or my present trouble has nothing to do with it. All I said at the time of offering my excuse for matching Willard with Johnson was along this line: "Klondike made Johnson quit. "Gardner, then sick, went twenty rounds with Johnson, "Hart beat him (referee's decision). "Kotchell, a middleweight, floored him. "Johnson beat ""Jeffries, but should have won in two rounds. Jeffries was a shell. Flynn Almost Beat Him "Flynn lost standing on his feet, stopped through the over zealousness ot a captain ot police who never before witnessed a ring match. I saw Johnson in a state of collapse for three hours after the mill. "Therefore, you can see at a glance I had no high opinion of Johnson, and when I saw Willard stall through ten rounds with Carl Morris in New York I made up my mind that either one could beat Johnson if neither did any more than clinch with him. "Ot course, I am not In the game aa a philanthropist, and 1 proceeded to look up the tighter to beat Johnson. I found Morris making money, tied up with the managers, and not likely to take a chance of wasting any time to chase Johnson tor a match. Willard Was Broke "I found Willard broke to the last cent; Jones, his manager, broke; both helpless financially, and no ring work in sight. H. H. Fracee and L. L. Webber offered to finance me In anything good and we took up Willard. "First, it was 1800 to bring Willard east, another 1501) to keep himself and family, 11000 to send me to Europe to see Johnson, $1000 advance to Johnson HISTORY REPEATS History goes on repeating itself century after century, and this is especially true of celebrated conflfcts between famous fighters, ancient and modern. There is an interesting similarity in the experience ot the late Mr. Achilles a perfectly good Greek warrior, who had one serious drawback, consisting of a vulnerable spot in his right heel, and Joseph Steelier, a modern wrestler. The most notable victory achieved by Achilles was over a combative person named Hector, who, knowing nothing ot the weak right heel of his, opponent, directed his attack to the/1 head and body without effect. Hector took the full count and Achilles cele- j brated his winning by dragging Hec-1 tor behind his charrlot about  the \ streets of the city. Anything of thatj sort is now prohibited by the rules of the boxing commissions. In an evil hour a prince named Paris heard a little yarn to the effect that the mother ot Achilles had as- sured htm protection against spears and arrows by dipping him while an infant in the river Styx. But .tJmre is the interesting part ot It, she held him by the right heel and thus left the one weak spot in his anatomy.
