A broken down iflckey trained this horse for him and  it was entered a' a certain meetin.g, j and in a field of four, started the out-! sider at 10 to 1. To the surtirise of i most it won. greatly to the owner's delight, and after the winning number was lioisted he leant over the back of one of the stands and said to his little son: ".Moike, gow home and tel yoer mother that Payra .Xayna's won," and the poor boy had to trudge home, about five miles, lo convey the glad news to the wife at hope, and of course miss the rest of Ihe day's sport. T. n. did not like to pay too much for liis racehorses and after a selling purse he was always at the side of the auction ring and he had a bid in for anything which looked going cheap. Conseipjenlly Instead of having one or two good horses he always had half a dozen moderate ones, though on different occasions out of the cheap lots he found something useful. Change of scene and climate often worked marvels with his horses. His colors were green and yellow sash and were very conspicuous. He really bet very little, about $511.1)0 being his biggest Invesiment. 1 shall never forget another of his victories. It was In what is kiiowi) as a Welter llindie.ip.

In addition to Manager Fred Clarke, Catcher George Gibson, Pitchers Phlllippe, Steele and Ferry, Jack Flynn, who will �try to wake good as a catcher, Ed. Laforce, the Pirates' trainer, and Claude Rltchey. Although Manager Clark held a conference with Honus Wagner, the big German has not yet signed a contract. Officials of the local club intimated that there is a perfect understanding with the star, and that Flans will probably leave for Hot Springs the latter part of the week. Has'nt "Come Alive" to Baseball Matters Yet Begina, March 10.-There appears some little likelihood that Reglna may be counted out of the Western Canada Baaeball League this coining season. No one turned up at this evening's meeting called by Tom Letcher, who is handling the Regina franchise, and he intimated the possibility of intimation to President Eck-storm that he is through,with baseball so far as Regina is concerned. Will Be Put Up By the Herald for District Baseball League  Interest In all amateur sport <^ Is always Increased by having a trophy for competition in  leagues. It Is not so much ^ the Intrinsic value of the Iro-  phy. but it Is representative, of the championship, and Is  scmetli.lng to show for the  efforts made to win out.  As Lethbridge Is out of the professional baseball league  this year, It is necessary to  have a good district league  organized and maint.alned diir-  ing the season. This leajrue 4^ to serve the best ends of sport ^ should be strictly amateur. To  encourage the formation of  sue*, a league the Daily Her-  aid will give a suitable tro-  phy lo represent the cham-  pionship of the league. This ^ Is the word given the Sport-  ing Editor by W. A. Buchan-  an, the managing director of  the Herald. *  Medals for the city amateur  league are also In sight. o OTTAWAS WIN Ottawa, .March 11.-The Ottawaf took the measure of the Canadiens last night by 5 to 0, which was the first and only shut-out of the present season in the N. H. A. The game was .fast although the heavy ice niade the players lag somewhat toward the end of each tiuarter. The play was rough, fifteen nenalties on each side being given. Lalonde and Ridpath Vere forced to retire, the latter by being knocked cold by being bumped iiito the boards by Payan, may not be able lo play in the Stanley Cup games. THE COST OF SPORT Plunge of Athleies Into; Icy River to Decide | Bet The enormous amoumt of money spent every year to keep up and furnish sport for the world can only be approximately determined. To compute the expenditure of any one country on its national pastimes is rendered impossible by lack of systematic means of ascertaining necessary data. Wrestling Supplanting Boxing "Wrestling is Slowly but surely crowding the boxing game off the aport map," says F. A Mclnery In the St. Dispatch. "The mat paitime Is growing: in popularity daily, while the ring followers are losing out here and there, and it will be only a matter of time until the fighting days will be over and wrestlinglooked upon as the major winter sport. There lare only a few cities in the United States at present In which fighting is allowed, and the lawmakers are working hard to have the game killed, Winnipeg, looked upon as a fiTBt-class fighting town, has been wiped off the map, and several fighters were arrested charged with being about to engage in a prize fight. Other pugs were chased out of the city, and to-day wrestling is posted as the major pastime in the Canadian City. Other Canadian lighting towns will be closed up. It la aaid, and then watch for a grand stampede of American wrestlers into Lu
