Folcy is built like a scrapper, much on the same plan as Tommy Burns, and Is about the same weight. This fight that Tolej has on his hands lor the Fourth will do much to test his right to ex- pect a fight nitli Burns, now that the tn-rnpl champion has entered the roped arena aagin and appears will- jog to meet all who have the class prepared to oppose him.

The locals were faced by a bunch of youngsters, hut the way they handled the pill during the encounter testified to tho fact ibat they .have ome skill on the diamond, and there is a mighty dangerous chance of tlieni looming up threateningly in the fut- ure. It was some swatfest. Heavy slugging 'was the order of the game, but the invincible infiekl work of the locals accounted 'for the small score of tlie visitors. Engleliart did the firing for the-War ner team, and acquitted himself i feather in his already, star-spangled cap. He was opposed by Beazley, a kid who knows how to pitch. He handed out some hot stuff during Hie janne, and had he had the supiioit he deserved the result of the game would have been entirely different. In several innings it resolved into a pitchers'- battle, and the way Beazley tame out of the pinches pretty smart. Hut Bnglehart also showed his class to good advantage, and seven strikeouts to his credit. Beaz- ley fanned five, and only walked one, while three, ilagrath lads tool; an easy stroll to first from the Warner twirler. He Was Ashamed The game got off about a quarter to four. .It. started brisk with Ma- grath to bat. Scott was first up, and succeeded in picking a beauty from Bnglehart's offering, making first safely. Coleman followed Scott and: shot a hot bingle to right, making! first and .advancing Scott to third.' Hocking was retired, much ashamed of himself, but A.. Mercer made con- nections and lined out a single. Poor fielding was seen for a moment, and Scott sneakod across home plate. This cheered- the visitors somewhat, and Manager Heathersha'w -was wear- ing some two-by-four smile. But their chances 'some more were rudely shattered when Deglow and werofSent hack to their seats in quick succession. Warner put two on ice in the first, the credit being due Gorrill .and Engl-e- hart. sillihilm was fifst to bat and biffed out a pippin to right. He landed safely on the, first sack. Applet's eyes failed to discern the twisty course of Beazley's offering, and he was soon sent the way of his fathers. Berg died on third, and Bigford fan- ned, concluding the round. Jonah Struck Them The next inning was the Jonah ,of both teams. There was nothing doing in the score line, both twirlers pitch- ing like demons. Mercar did excel-( lent service behind the bat, and he and the Garden City 'twirler mak-e a They will probably he in better form next game, as it was their first duel this season. Luker did the receiving for Warner, and as usual showed up brilliantly. Engle- nart was sure of his catch, thus mak- ing it possible to' hand out dope that was in baseball calendar and dope that 'wasn't. The third was a repitltion of tlie lecond, both teams' doing fine infield work. No tallies were chalked up for jither team. In the fourth :iad a fighting chance for a score, b-t failed. Beazley and J.. Mercer were retired in short order, but the next batter up, Evans, knocked a DIC.I bingle to right, landing him on Br-c. Scott, the giant sw-itsman ot the Ma- srath team, was next to bat, bit: suf- "ered the humiliation of a clean fan. Magrath took it all in good part, and chased out. Warner did things in their half of ;he 'fourth, Luker and Graham both naking the circuit. But Beazley again on the job in his usual form, and Millliaim, Berg arid Bigford were killed, sending them to the yard along their companions. Something to Remember The fifth will always linger in tho memory of tlie Magrath team, ond in he club-house ot the Homesteaders jow hangs a tribute to the innings, implanted in an imperishable frame. Magrath came to bat with full conn- donee of their prowess, but were si- lenced in great style, but they took their medicine like men. And then he fun. is for Warner. 'Picnic" was right, for In ihis Water- loo innings the death blow to tlie Garden City hoys from which they never recovered. The Jinx took .hand 'with the and It .ras some Job for tlie scorers to keep thoir eyes peeled nnd tliolr quill going. Millliaim was retired, and'It was up o Applein to start tho merry-go-round.

It began to look ai though they never put the Warner bunch out. Jensen made a couple of costly errors in centre and'the infieldeTs thought they just might as well take a -peek irift the upper regions with their comrades and threw the ball hither and thithei in. a vain attempt to silence their foes. Six runs! It was -staggering, and from then on the Mag-rath troop- ers played really sloppy ball. In the sixth Beazley struck out two ?nen in succession, but -in the next time at bat Warner slipped two more over their enemy. And the Band Played On And thus the game went on. It looked as though .Magrath was going to emerge from the figlit with one lone tally to her credit. The ninth inning came it found grath still on the job, badly battered but still in the ring. Well sir, that was some event. With two men down everyone thought the game -was done. But it wasn't. Cyclone Scott grabbed 'the stick, 'and with a mighty Swat, drove the pill to right. Hock- ing, the whirlwind second baseman, did a similar trick. The next man filled the bases, and it began to look the least bit exciting. Tension ran high, and when A. Mercer took up the cudgel everyone held their breath. Morcer has some reputation and it by no means suffered. Rather, he .wrote another page ja his already glittering baseball history by slam- ming out one of those home runs for which he is famous. It was on his third strike to boot, and when he lost the ball, Warner, both the team and the fans, stared In amazement. It was certainly a' pippin of a hit and made the score five to twelve. With another. suurt Mag-rath put' men on second and third, but Jensen was re- tired and the game was over. Warner Had Luck Warner won on the good merits of her infield and luck. It-was evident- ly jVIagratb's off day, at least it was Jensen's, for be is generally there with stellar fielding. The Magrath team is young and inexperienced, speaking generally. It was the first time they had gotten together, this year, and 'they certainly handed out a good class of ball, when all things are considered. By the next game their team will be materially strength- ened, and will be in a position to show up to better advantage. Man- ager Heathershaw feels greatly en- couraged with the outlook, and has confidence in his aggregation. War- ner has a strong team. That goes without saying, but the result of the season is as yet very much in doubt. They meet Magrath in Magrath next Thursday. Aii interesting game is expected.

Mornington Cannon Takes Issue With Tod Sloan's Statement London, June Momington Can- non, the most famous of. the genera- tion of Jockeys, which lias almost pass- ed away, vigorously denies "Tod" Sloan's asertion, based on the Derby race, that the horsemanship' of Eng- lish jockeys Is disgraceful. "Sloan's charge might be that jock- ey's lack nerve, is absurd. The trouble is that owners are now constantly putting Frenchmen and Americans on horses and the unfortunate Eng- lishman .rides every race in fear of being superseded, "This fear at the bottom causes the lack of Initiative by English jockeys. If owners will stick to English jock- eys and give them a fair chance they Vill find them as good as ever." Cannon, who dislikes tho American crouch seat, admits it.has forever sup- erseded the old English style ot rid- ing, an opinion in which Walter Griggs one of England's foremost jockeys, concurs, saying the American style is better, giving the jockey full control THE COMPLETE SUPPLY HOUSE Engine Room Supplies JENKINS VALVES OF ALt.
