The 'balance of the day was spent, in resting and sight-seeing, Johnson took some short sprints on the road and went through his regular training in the stadium in the afternoon. Both men say that the climate of Havana has helped them to arrive in good shape. Cuban government offlicials are determined to take no chances on a serious accident due to a fight (between such big men. They have appointed three physicians to attend at the ringside. They will have oxygen and other stimulants to revive the fighters in case of an unusual knockout. They, say, however, that they will not Interfere with the proper termination of the battle according' to the code of the prize ring. The relatively gigantic size of the pugilists has evidently impressed the Cuban officials that the fight will be nn unusual one. * Havana,.

Hi's sparring partners were tired when their turns ended, Johnson was on the road in the morning, doing about six miles, Jogging and sprinting alternately.

CAPIURES mm MY Tlie Moose hall was packed last night with an enthusiastic crowd of carpet btiW fans to witness the flnal games oAthe City league's first sea-sou.. The Moose, A. 0. F. and Sons of England teams were tied at the close of the series, necessitating a play oft, and in the draw for'position the S. O. E. drew a bye, having to play the 'winners of the A.O.F.-Moose match. Those who had followed the games through were confldent that the team that won the latter match would certainly win the final, owing to the great advantage gained through the practise of the flrst game. But the best laid plans, etc., failed to materialize, for the Sons of England handed out the surprise of the evening, running away from their opponents and handing them a good drubbing, the score being 17 to 5. Right from the flrst end the Sons took the lead and shut the Foresters right out "of the game until the ninth end was reached, 'when the score stood 13-0, after this the game was more even, both sides scoring until the last end when the S. O. H. stood 17 and the A, O. F. 5. In the first game the Moose had to acknowledge the superior play of the A. O. P., the latter having no difficulty in winning the match, the score being 16 6. Taking the season through the carpet ball 'league have every reason to be satisfied with the result of the first season's work. Although the 'game was new to the city it has taken quite a hold and next winter will likely see a greater number of teams in the league. Carpet ball is a fine addition to the city's indoor sport, and is here to stay. The Sons of England will hold the City Sign Works shield, donated by R. Barrowman, for the first year.

The crowd, which had watched Wells' clever boxing enthusiaBticai'iy seemed stunned, then cheers burst forth, and Wells' gooonds lifted his prostrate form and carried it over the ropes. In the first round Moran outfought and outgeneralled the Englishman, but in the second Wells seemed to regain his nerve, and from then unti'i the knockout fought a cleaner and a more scientific battle, although Moran's blows seemed to do the greater damage. The second round went to Wells on points; in the third honors were even, but Wells had the advantage in the fourth. Both men were now bleeding over the left eye. Again in ttie fifth Wells' superiority was marked, but Moran shaded him in the sixth, and before the eighth round was over We'ils was bleeding profusely and appeared to be tired, while Moran was smiling and confll-dent.

Good crops, are unavoidable. SUMMER FALLOW How summer fallow was- the result of an accidcnt'Tvas related. When Mr. IVfcKayi came to Indian Head in 1883 he took up land. He grew a big crop which froze. ..Discouraged, a number oi acres were lett imsown for want of seed. The virtue of summer fallowing was shown later oh, Originally it was ehiployed for eradicating weeds, but crops grown -vreie. so . splendid that farmers be^an'to be converted to summer mllowmg. Suminer fallowing was the foundation of farming. It not only keeps the ground right, .l^ut cpnEcryes moisture, making two years' moisture go' to-'\vatds one year's crop. Making ah cf^ fort, to get out and reach farmers,' not affected by a superabundance of moisture, to show them the effects of good and bad cultivation, how to grow alfalfa and potatoes, and to take, an . interest in summer fallow will bring more than its reward in the building up of towns and cities. EXPKliiMKNTAL FARMS Mr. Grisdale explained the system and tl.e working of the thirty Dp-miuion experimental farms. Some misapprehension existed as to the working oi these farms. Possibly some people thought that more miglit be done by thCm. The work of the farms was purely experimental. Tliey were not trying to show John Jones liow to run his farm. If ho did as they did he would be faced with financial loss. . But the experimental farms devoted tlicir labors on fiudiug Meeting of Arhatuer Baseball Teams at "Y" Friday Evening Baseball in Lethbridge this season will be in the form of a city league. That is the present outlook. The baseball promoters have practlcal'iy tabooed a district league this year and are arranging for a purely local league.

EsteSsiit crops of wheat call be produced on soil previ-ouslj' sown 'with corn, as was proved at Ihdi'an Head.' At Brandon; where the rainfall is higher than here, not only corn, Ijiit clover and timothy in rotation did away with the need ol summer fallow." Corn will help out summer fallow. No loss will be incurred if faimers can be got to follow this. Potatoes 'will take the place of corn, possibly more pirbiitably. At Ottawa ii was- demonstrated that right rotation could'double the production in 7 or 8 years, J-lere the land was not virgin isoil. In Prince Edward Island, where land was better, production, ^^'asdoi^bled in four years. Alii effort'.is being' 'made ' towards some ;cioppihg':sy^tem' that' will give the best''results here, and it was' hoped that a:,solu1>ioti would soon be found. � '' LIVESTOOK Increasing of livestoclc, said Mr. G-risdale, should engage the attention and interest,,of farmery.,Every farmer should grow, not buy, livestock. Not much was done at the experimental farm here except In the shape of whiter feeding, bUt it was hoped to have buildings' and good herds for experimenting. �' ' THE SILO The silos at taconibe, put up with corn and a mixture of peas and oats, lowered cost of producing milk by 25 to 35 per cent. Dry feeding as a contrast put up the cost, ^ilos for stock were not so important in irrigated areas, but will prove very useful in the raising of livestock.', MARKET FACILITIES The Board of Trade,.continued Mr. Urisdale, can help tiie larmers^ a great deal by facilitating � market conditions. In tlie rearing o� livestock for profit much could be done by showing the farmers the bright side. Pigs,- for instance, which reached a million and a half last year; this year did not exceed a quarter of a million. Farmers should be sliowntliat they made a mistake in bringing out pigs so suddenly. The price for pork was bound to go upwards. Unlortunately when grain prices go up the price of pork does down; But: with the promised abundance of grain pork-raising must prove profitable. STABILITY IN FARMING What was needed was stability in the increase of stock. The farmer should be helped in the matter of transportation. Facilities in this will advance ,the stability, of the livestock business. Every city dweller should do "something'in the matter of helping the farmer in- this respect. Good roads were'as essential to farmers as to city dwellers. � FARAIERS-AND BANKERS The' farmer today has not such a favorable -opinion .of ^bankers^ as he had two years ago. The speaker hoped this wouldv change. If Jarmecs are now out off in the matter.of advances it will help .retard ithe ^recovery of" good�'tlmesi -It wae' a' matter of understanding each other's problems for a tietter'relatlpnship. ' Mi.

PRESIDENT OP BOARD OF , TRADE Preliminary to Mr. Grisdale's speech,.-President Marnoch of the Board of Trade, addressed the meet: ing. He drew attention to the fact that, through the e-xer-tion of - the mombership committee of the  Board, new members to the number of. 120 had been added, and. $!)35 in. cash brought m. The farmerss membership of $1.00 had been responded to by. many. The speaker referred to the m-. terest Mr. Grisdale-had evincedm lo-r cal agricultural conditions, and also dwelt on the manner m which farming interests appealed to the -Board of Trade by reading extracts from the annual report; -I'v > MR. FAIRFIELD's'w'ORK � Speaking' of the local experimental farm, Mr. Marnooir .said that it' stands as a monument, and its energetic superintendent, Mr,j Fairfield, took good care that every farmer ih the district should be, told what was: ^ivritten on that raonu'ment.-iyir.. Fairfield had done immense good'� in spreading the gospel -,of agriculture, and had taken tor his: special preaching the cultivation of alfalb. Gora on summer fallow will be his next text. He had shown the benefit,of potato' growing, and the variety b^st suited to the district, and had given the little men instruction in growing, stacking and marketing potatoes. -DESERVES A MOTOR-CAR ., The speaker felt that Mr.. Eairfleld; deserved a motor car. at Jus-disposal for facilitating-the spread/Oi his agricultural evangel. jyU' Fairfield had not oniv confined his � attention to the economic matters of agticul-;-ture, but had also experimented' suo-cesstull}' on small fruit. - Mr. Mitch--ell's nurseries at Coaldale wore liker wise a credit. , . , .
