Even vvltli all that to tlie pretent champion's credit, he is a poor specimen of the championship calibre of by-gone days.

All I have to say is that a lot of these wiao ones are going to be fooled. Tliu Washington team of lia� will bo a much stronger one than that of 1915. Last year Gandll and Morgan were out of the game most of the lime while our catching stafl* was not alway.s in the beat of shape. This year I have Judge, a wonderful prospect, as a first aacker and my intleld will be niHCh more dependable. I have Janileson for the outfield and Henri Hondeau is liable to make somebody hustle for a nosition in the outfield. I have the best pitching stafl!

He planned longer road run today and Hay.s he will surely get below 250 pounds before ho enters ihe ring, Moran, who has trained zealously is carefully watched by his trainer, Lewis, and his attendants so that he may not overdo work, either on the road or in the gyranaaiuni. Roughing It New York. iMarch 16.-in a driving snowstorm over frozen and slippery roads, both Jess Willard and. B'rank ^loran did hard work today in ;ire-paratlon for their bout. The rham-plon jogged about four miles through Central park and along nearby tlior-oughfare.*, while iVIoran's five-mile run was cross-country, near his Westchester training quarters. Neither wa� sorry when the outdoor work hail been completed.

Then he took on, his three sparring partners for two rounds each, and followed with a tour-minute wrestling bout with HouHsane, the Turk. The medicine ball, which was thrown vigorously by himselt and two attendants | wound up the most strenuous day of 1 his training.

Somewhat Nervous Moran's traineiH admitted lie is on edge and will need careful nursing to keep in condition. Ho said he wislicd his bout With Willard was on for tonight Instead of 10 days away. anxious to keep the. rural municipalities from going into delit for these works.

The contest was a thriller. ? ? : : : : : : : ? : ? ? : JESS WILLARD ADDS ? .^ CAMERA MAN TO LIST OF > ? ? ? r.not. The camera was iiiili,urt. est In her husband's estate. At present there are two laws In effect in the province which deal with this mailer but something bettor is required. "Tho Married Women's Relief" act gives a woman tho privilege of going to court to contest her husband's will provided he has left her less than her share would bo if he had died Intestate wiiich is the whole of tho ertato if there are no children and ono-thlrd if there any. Tho Homo Protection act gives a woman the privilege to file a caveat against her husband's estate preventing him from mortgaging or selling tho homestead without her consent. In both cases the woman has to go to law before she can receive her rights. What la wanted is that the woman has inchoate right lo her husband's estate without 'having to go to law courts. The second amendment that will be asked for is equal parental rights, which will mean that the mother win bo an equal guardian with her husband of hor children. At present a man is legally allowed to will the guardianship of his children to whom he pleases, and If no will is left a mother has to apply to the jcourts tor the guardianship of hor own children. In this nmondmoiit tho women wish to have the right of ro-fuqing their consent to the marriage of minor � children, at proaotl. in the hands of tho husband only. Another change Avanlod is the abatement of the red light district. It will be seen that all those are really essential to the well-being of the home. The study of proportional representation which is quite dlBtlnot from tho second cUoloe ballot, that Is in force at the nnjhlcipal elections at Leth-bridge, will be taken up by Uie women ab tUet tUoy will be conversant with that method of votljig It they should be required to vote in that uicmnor. ��A We're After the Mail Order Houses V\'(^ M-'\sh lo ,stato to tlic people' of SotUherji Alhorta ihnt Sir. llolit, A.
