NORTH WARD HAS THE PREFERENCE It looks pretty .-o.'t to sit in the the grandstand ur bleacuer.-; and watch the players go ihrougii ine pra'tice ond game. V.'hen you i oiiiemplate �ftbat tihey receive on the first tuiu fifteenth of each mouth for their efforts, you come to the conclusion that they must, be ashamed to take the money, ft must be admitted thii; it does look ;�ther soft from an easy chaJr In tshe grandstand, b'lt a little deliberation -will soon prove that there is easier money than received by the ball player, although he is certainly weJI paid for his time. Successful ball players, ball pla;- rs who get the money, are those wlio take chtiiices. are always doing the difficult or unexpected. It seems rath er ordinary to see Cobb make a daring steal of home, to watch Christy .VIat-hewson retire the side on strikes with men on second and third, and no one out, or marvel as Wagner or Lajoie pull off some sensational fielding play that averts defeat. .

NOTICE In Regard to the Formation of District Base Ball League The Herald has received several communications from towns in the south respecting the formation of a district baseball league. In order that definite steps may be taken to form one. the Herald requests that the neighboring towns wiahing to be included In an organix^ition of thi� \ kind. communicate with the Sporting Editor of this paper, stating the kind of a league which appeals to them be*t and when and where a meeting might be held to organize.

Instead of passing his time on the CorbI with hia aiiiompbiles and other pleasures, to tha exclusion of his "life work," it appejirs that the champion has been slyly pre-i paring himself for battle. A letter received from S�n Francisco today brings out the fact that Jack la ready to step Into the ring at n week'a notice. He has slipped away from hit match with Ous Schultz: J.

The cliih decided to write 10 ihe towiKS lietween Lethbridge and -Medicine Hat and make an effort lu form a league composed of clubs from those towns. ,\ew York. March 20.-We're certain I of it now. Packey .McFarland is the best boy of his weight on the map. We are not alone in that opinion, either. Packey thinks so himself, and isn't' a bit backward about it. Told Packey last night that a wire Los Angeles arrived here sayini? that Wolgast intended retiring after bo.viiig .Memsic and Hogan. "Weil, just say for me," chirped the Chicagoan. "that when he does I'll jump up and let out a whoop for the title. If there Is anyone left that I can't beat, .iust trot him out," he continued. "I've been tr.%ing to get on with Wolgast for a year past, but he's a better sidestepper than I thought. .Makes the bluff about bcxlng, but never does. I've beat .Murphy, Welsh, Mor an. Britt. Cross. Hyland, and a bunch of others-and If 1 can't get a whack at the chninpiou what am I going to do? If I'm not the best lightweight in the world, .Mr. 'WolgaBt will have to prove it to me." Owen Moran says that Packey .McFarland is by far the best man !;e has ever met. "He was too big for me. though," chirped the little Briton. "Get me some uf those birds my weight, Knock-,out Brown or Wolgast, they would fickle mo to death."-Tad. is the Future of Alberta --Why? -Tommy Bums Signifies His Faith (Jalgary. March 20.-In honor of the sunny province of Canada, Tommy Burns, former heavyweight champion, is to christen his baby girl ".Alberta." The erstwhile champion has brought the little baby to this city, and everybody is taking an interest in the child. Burn,g looked over a heavyweight novice. Luck .McCarthy, and said he was a good boxer, in Tommy's diplomatic way. .VIoCartliy may have the makings of a champion, but he is green yet, and Jake Pullerton, the local middleweight, can handle him readily. plonship event. This last go will probably bring Al Kaufman up as his opponent. Tha amount of that money which Mcintosh Bttggests Is 80 large that )i has caused Jack to forget tliere Is such a place as the Cnlted Stales, Moreover, ,rohnson realties he stands mora chance for enthusiastic backing a-broad than be does,here, as the raca feoHng does not exist there. This report from tlM> Coast, following so closely on the news that Hugh Mcintosh ie on the point of sailing for .\merlca. to try and induce Johnson to go abroad with him, shows Johnson has taken the affair seriously because he ia not the man to work for weeks and weeks .unless there is somo thing tangible In sight. From all Indications Jack will not fight in the United Stales for some time to ^rorae, and the fans here will not see hl.m In his battles for the title unless they go abroad.
