Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 6, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta HERE IT fiT MOTION PICTURE PARODIES AMUSE you can have fun with very little trouble and no expense by.giv- ing parodies. on motion pictures "Tounjr LoebJnvar" was the. time one group of young people- gave with great, success. The stage was the lawn. One member of 'iho party read-the pceni slowly while the ac- tors illustrated .'Jt: Lochinvar, .on. came prancing forth, clad in a-cloak, a plumed _hat, and, tall booty, and with a. kitchen knife for a sword. He gave a stiff imitation'of leaping over rocks and bushes; swam the Esfc River, and boldly dashed into Neth- erby hall, where the festivities pre- ceding the wedding were in progress. The bride wore a costume that in- cluded an old lace she. car- vied an armful of weeds and brush fcr a bridal bouquet. The Tjride- grocm hung back, and the bride's father demanded the intruder's rea son for intruding The bride's mother rah about, fuss- Jus and making motions of-disap- proval to the guests> and trying to stir the bridegroom to act, but "with- out succeat The goblet was a big kitchen tin, black and but thd bride kissed it and then ran off ivith Lochinvar. At once: the father and the other men seized'brooms in waiting by a tree and galloped madly after Ixjch- Invar and the bride, but soon re- turned, shaking their heads, and empty-handed. The reader mourn- fully announced: "The lost bride: of Itetherbr ne'er did they and the .picture was over.

LEFT-HAND BALL PLAYER HAS CERTAIN ADVANTAGES W BY-SHINING JJOX X'T waste rour time in longing For bright impossible things, Don't sit supinely yearning For the swiftness of angels' wings; Don't spurn to be a rush light, Because you are not a star- But brighten- of darkness By shining just where you are. There is need of the tiniest candle, As well as Ore garish sun; The humblest deed is en- nobled When it is worthily done; Tou may never be called to brighten darkened regions afar; So fill, for the day, your mis- sion By shining just where yo" are. IJITIXG on baseball to hii. brother, Bill of the varsitj squad says; The player who bats .left-handed has a big advantage It is somewhat easier to hit the bal on the left side of the plate, and i is distinctly easier to reach first, ter you do strike. The experienced college pitcher has no difficulty pitching to a left-hsnder, but an> pitcher who is lacking in experience is likely Jo he a bit shy of them. -He is used to pitching to right-handers and a left-hand hitter may trouble him. This is especially true on High school teams. But the distinct advantage of the left-hander is in beating out htts The swing I make to hit the ball carries me toward .first base. If I connect, the crack of ball and hat' finds me in my stride and on my way to first. Thus I get a running start The swing ot the right-hander car- ries him away from first, and' after hitting the ball. he must recover his balance and get his start. When I am batting left-handed I am several feet closer to first base, and 'several feel often makes the difference be- tween a hit and an out. Of course it would be unwise for the right-hand batter who'is hitting hegm io seem handy, the plajer may base to gne up and start all again Not etery piaver can o: should leain. to bat left handed, bu man-v right hand throwers ivho-e hit ting is weak and who therefore haie eieijthing set to lean about batting can well start in on the left hand and take adiantage of its pos sibihties well to switch to the other style. He would lose the benefit ot much train- ng to gain the advantage of position 3ut the boy who is just starting to earn io bat, and who has the deter- mination to practice until he suc- ceeds, -would do well to try the left- landed style. If, after a week's prac- tice, tie left-handed style doesn't Too manv boii mink the; have to bat the same way they throw. Thai ts far fiom true Probably a major ify of the best hitters hat ieft-handed and throw right-handed. Uon't think you are limited "to one side of the plate because, you.throw with youi- right hand. Consider all the con-Ji- ions, study yourself, and try to make a wise choice. Each player must de- 'de for himself. Batting practice is the regular these days. Two or..sometimes' hree pitchers work in the batting ages and the varsity squad comes round and around in order. Often we have a batting practice on the diamond, sometimes with a full set of fielders, more often with only two or three to stop the balls. Hit, hit, hit, is the call. I have to work be- hind the bat part of the time, but you may be sure I get in all the time with a bat that I eaa, ami I a ways pick out the best pitcher to practice against, for those are th. kind one has to face in a game.

A WONDERFUL FLIGHT 1ET SCISSORS TINY WAGON JfEARLY all children like to with something that moves and [that they can make themselves. To 'make a small wagon, take a candy 30X, four pastboard covers of milk jottles, and four ordinary collar but- '.ous with small heads. Punch holes in the centres of covers (these form :he, and in the sides of the iox one inch from each corner; then orce the collar buttons through the wheels into the box. The wheels will revolve and a string may be at- ached to the front of the box so that he-child can draw it around.

Now hang he scissors up by the string, which knotted at the end. v The trick is to. get the string off the scissors, or the scissors off the string, withouti-touching the knotted end of the string.

The way to do it is to pull the lo.op loose from the one handle of tfe scissors, pass it "OT noontime when the sun comes out 'he birds complain ot thirst, And so dunk the tuneful dew, Till into song they burst! a strange thing happens Don't be a dunce1 V, Hh all those notes inside them they Can sing four parts at onto' Io' now, Dp guess!
