MICHELIN TIRES and TUBES have stood the test for years. Bijou Motor Parlors Limited THE HOUSE OF SERVICE FIFTH STREET SOUTH LETHBRIDGE, ALT A. Toronto, March 9.-The Globe sporting editor says: "When the Kitchener team, O. H. A. senior champions meet the champion Ypres team of Winnipeg the Manitoba representatives in the Allan cup final, the Ontario team will have no such walkover as they had against Fort Arthur. The games will be played in this city on Tuesday and Thursday nights of this week. "The very decisive manner in which the Winnipeg boys polished off the Saskatoon Quakers after the latter had disposed of Kegina indicates that the Ypres outfit is a mighty one. "Ontario lovers of hockey who have seen Ypres perform this season have brought back stories of the prowess of Kitchener's opponents which indicate that the huter must be at its best to win the round." Boston, March 11. �-Twenty-one of the 27 members r.f ihc lloston National league baseball c nib. who will begin spring training a' .Miami, Fla.. have sent in their Kipm-il contracts, and of tills number it was announced that 17 I will receive higher salaries than last! lear. j "Patrons of baseball are not con-! corned in the amount paid to players" , Percy D. Haughmn. president of the club, said, "but in view of all the talk, recently about wholesale slashing it is J only fair to sUii- that there have been no sweeping redm t ons such as a few players whoso demands are out of all reason would make it appear. Of our 27 players 17 wen- sent contracts that showed increa.-es over what they received last four will get the same pay as heretofore, while only six have been reduced in salary over their 1917 figures. "The six players who have not. signed know what U.n been offered them 1 and wc know in fairness to ourselves and to other men on the team that wo can not and will not offer Ihem any more, but I be! eve all w'U come into the family foil long before the team starts south. Boclio to Yankees New York. March 7.-The New-York American league baseball club completed it deal today which added Frank (Ping) Bodie to the team as an outfielder. Bodio was obtained from the Philadelphia Athletics in exchange for George Burns, first baseman of iho Detroit Americans, whom the local club purchased for cash in order to put the deal through. Philadelphia, March 7.-George Burns, who comes to the Philadelphia Athletics in exchange for "Ping" Bodie is subject to the national army draft. Connie Mack of the Athletics tonight said he did notk now whether Burns had been placed in class one under the now classification, but lie-did know that his draft number was "well back." Browns To Keep Hale The St. Louis Browns have called a halt on the deal by which Catcher George Hale was to have ben sent to Salt Lake. Since Hank Severeid is a holdout, even to tiie desperate point of threatening to enlist in the army at S30 a month unless he gets what he wants, the Browns may need catchers, so Hale will be retained until Manager Jones has assured himself of a catching siafC. Hale is not a bad catcher, by any means. Given regular work he might be a star. Sisler Not an Indoor Star George Sisler is coming in for a good deal of kidding following his recent exhibition during a game of indoor baseball at St. Louis. George simply was n flivver. He went to bat four times and fanned every time. He didn't even touch the ball for a foul. George acknowledges that he's no $50,000 prize as an indoor player. Barrow Has Two Jobs Edward Barrow at present seems to have a sort of double-barreled job, one being a leftover from his International league activities. Edward is now manager for Harry Frazee of the Boston Bed Sex, but is still in the business of hunting up players for Connie Mack, a job it seems he undertook when ho saw the Ints had been torpedoed. It is now said Unit the Athletics of 1918 will look like a composite picture of the best of the Ints. Edmonton-Assurance that the Provincial government will introduce legislation at this session to establish an income tax within the province was made by Hon. C. R. Mitcheli. provincial treasurer, during the discussion of charter amendments asked by .Medicine Hat before the municipal law committee of the house. The subject came up in the discussion of amendment No. 2, in which Medicine Hat city seeks to obtain the power to go back to the old system of assessing improvements as well as hind. The same clause also asks the, power to assess "incomes," and Mr. Mitchell suggested that this word be eliminated as the provincial government was considering bringing in legislation affecting taxation in general, including incomes. Mr. Mitchell said that as there already was a dominion income tax, to give the power to Medicine Hat to establish such a tax when the province also was considering something along this line, would make three taxes of this nature, which might bo confusing. It was learned that the reference. Mr. Mitchell made to income taxation by the province is the feature which the government, is considering in connection with raising the money for the $800,000 contribution to the patriotic fund. It is said that this income tax will not apply to wages ami salaries, but to "unearned income," that is to say, a tax against interest returns on investments. E EST HOCKEY YET Toronto, March 11.-Winnipeg Ypres team will have to show unparalleled hotkey to beat Kitchener for the Allan Cup, according to the Toronto sporting editors.

BAALIM MOTOR CO. HOME OF THE CHEVROLET BACK OF UNION BANK HARRY H01.MAN, Mgr. PROF. P. J. BARRY BARONS, ALBERTA March 1st, 191S. ' We, the undersigned, wish to testify that Prof. Barry's course of instruction in horse Training is all and more than it is advertised to be, the first lesson in our opinion being worth the amount he charges for his full course. The term or expression Horse Breaking may and often does convey the idea that harsh or brutal treatment ia necessary la the subduing of "horses, but Prof. Barry'B system would commend itself to any humanitarian or member of the S. S. P. C. A,, as he emphasizes the importance of kindness in all his lessona. In conslusion we may say that Prof. Barry's system is a triumph of trained human intelligence over the animal mind, and is ot inestimable value to any one whose work or occupation makes it necessary for them to handle horses.
