He brought with him his manager, George Hitchcock, r/ianager of the Business 'Men's Athletic Club, of "Waterloo.

He comes from a big family. He has the distinction of being the ninth of a family of l.'i brothers and five sisters. He is just a kid himself yet. It is reported that on Clonie Tait's return to Winnipeg he will appear in a boxing sketch in vaudeville in the big burg. With Allison and Tait both here and the roads good, the fans are preparing to attend the last big fistic event of the winter season in droves.

Stirling rang up a basket making it ;n-3:' in favor of Stirling. Then in the last few seconds of play Nalder after a seond toss-up under the basket, tipped the ball in for the winning goal. The crowd was in a frenzy with excitement and when the pistol went off announcing time-up Raymond for the first time defeated Stirling.

BAALIM MOTOR ! March 1st, 1918. 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 Home Breaking may and often does convey the idea that harsh or brutal treatment la necessary In the subduing of horses, but Prof. Barry's system would commend itself to any humanitarian or member of the S. S. P. C. A.t an he emphasizes the importance of kindness in all his lessons. In consIiiHion wc may say that Prof. Barry's system is a triumph of trained human intelligence over the animal mind, and is of inestimable value to any one whose work or occupation makes it necessary for them to handle hortfea. i Signed: Alexander MacLean, Alex.
