The local squad consisted of George McKillop, Leon and Marcus Dunswdrth, "Irish" Kane, Spackman and Percy Irwin. The boys are expecting no easy encounter with the Capitals on the latter's own floor but they are confident that, if they do not bring home the bacon, they will at least give the boys of the north a hard run for their money. On the return trip Lethbridge will play Calgary in Calgary. This will be merely an exhibition game. Whether it can be arranged that the Lethbridge boys will receive a return visit from the Edmonton team, who claim the provincial championship by reason of their defeat of Calgary, is not known as yet. The boys will appear on the Edmonton floor tonight in their brand new uniforms which they �secured yesterday just before leaving.

Sid Mercer in the New York Evening Globe thus recounts a discussion by Mike Donlin, of the good old days of baseball: "And that reminds me," Mike interrupted himself, "that Johnny Evers said something the other day when he declared that baseball had lost some of its grip on the public because'the players no longer paraded through city streets and appeared in uniform only on the field. I agree with Johnny. "!t. required considerable agility to dodge the brickbats then, but we always managed to escape with our lives. McGraw's ' old championship ! team ot 1004 and 1905 seldom got in or out of Chicago, St. Louis, Pittsburg of Philadelphia without a fight. Circus Attraer/on. . "After we won the world's championship from the Athletics in 1905, j John T. Brush made us a circus attraction. "Visiting teams always put on their uniforms at their hotel and usually rode out to the ball orchard in 'busses. Brii3h made us put on a lot of dog, but he thereby subjected us to some awful risks. He had a couple of huge yellow horse blankets made with the words 'World's Champion' in black appearing on this bright background. You could see us coming for blocks, and you could also hear us when the angry mobs chased us. Expert Brickbat Dodgers. "In each city, instead of riding in 'busses, we paraded in open carriages, four men in uniform to a carriage. We often rode through rough neighborhoods thus attired,i and we were great targets for the Irish confetti tossers. I got so I could feel a brick coming when I couldn't see it. "They haled us in Chicago. The newspapers pointed out that we were as yellow as our horse blankets. The Cubs were our deadly rivals, and when we got into our carriages after beating them on their own grounds we always looked for trouble. Once I changed my clothes at the Cub park and made my exit * in street clothes, but there was a guy waiting for me and we had a battle. He checked off our crowd going away in the carnages and found me missing, so he laid for me at the clubhouse entrance. Pittsburg Tough Town. "Pittsburg was another tough town for us. There was a deaf and dumb fan there who used to come around and see Dummy Taylor. He was an awful pest. One night he was riding on the back step of our 'bus and was knocked off by Frank Bowerman. He had Bowerman pinched and the Pittsburg papers demanded that we all be run out of town. "Another time we won a ding-dong game in Philadelphia and were returning to our hotel in those open carriages. Going down Broad Street a big ripe tomato caught Roger Bresriahun square on the mouth. You should have heard H�ger. r , "Bowerman was riding with'me in Toronto, March 29.-Vancouver Millionaires ran away from the Torontos in the fourth game of the Stanley Cup series on Thursday night when they defeated the Blue Shifts 8 to 1. .This makes the count two and two on the series, and the final game on Saturday night under the N.H.L. rules.will decide the resting place of the cup for the year. ' � .. . Comment on the Game. Toronto. March 29.-The Globe, commenting on Thursday night's Stanley Cup game, says: "It was probably the poorest exhibition of hockey thait , haa yet been provided for the fans' during the season. The roughness which marked the first game under western rules was fortunately absent; only on a few occasions did ths ill-feeling, which exists among certain players, come to the surface. Toronto attempted to check back, but with'.Taylor continually on the edge of the forward pass area, awaiting a pass from McKay, Stanley or MacDonald, the Blue Shirts were at a loss just how to handle the situation." � � ?

Exchange Telegraph Company. the back seat of a carriage. We'were stopped by the traffic and a bird sneaked up on us from behind. He reached over, removed Frank's cap with one hand, and with the other crowned him with the bottle. Frank was stunned for a moment, during which the guy gently placed the cap back on liIs dome. When Bowerman snatched it. off there was a lump on his onion as big as an egg. Frank hung  his cup on it, cussed a little, shifted his chew and apparently let it go at that. "Our exit in St. Louis was through a narrow passage between the right and centre field bleachers. There were times we took it on the run the minute the game was over, leapeil into our hacks and hit the floor while the drivers made a quick getaway. Those Kerry Patch boys were handy with bricks, too. "But now," sighed Mike, "it's too tough a life, what with a guy being compelled to sleep in upper berths, stop at European hotels, carry his own bats and .sometimes not getting a "taxi. I'm glad I wore my halo in the good old days when we risked little besides our heads. ! "And yet," sighed Old Turkey as he mitted the young journalist, "I wish my legs were as good now as (he old batting eye," ' ... Hon. J. R. Boylo thought the doctors had no schedule, that thoy simply charged according to the apparent means of their clients.

He claimed that there were no professional men who worked longer hours or rendered mote faithful service to the people than the physicians.

It was costing |800 a year to look after each boy aent.from the province no matter what the cause.

Pool Rooms. �On the vote for legal offices and prosecutions, Mrs. McKinney said the reports she had received would indicate there was no effective supervision of the pool rooms in the province. Attorney General Cross replied that if complaints of gambling or suspicion of selling liquor were made they would be sufficient to result in suspension of the license. Capt. Pearson called attention to the polluted air conditions of some pool rooms, and said that in regard to structure as well aa the character of the applicants, investigation should be made before licenses were granted.

IE (From Our Own Corrospondont) Magrath, March 27.-On Sunday evening the Knight Academy Musical society of Raymond presented to a Magrath audience the sacred cantata "The Coming ot Ruth," one of the best productions of amateur preforming ever seen or heard by Magrath people. The entertainment was full of interest from start to finish and lovers ot music enjoyed it immensely. The story was taken from the Book of Ruth in the Bible, and was acted mil so real, if one had not known the story it was not hard to follow it. The leading characters did extremely well, most of them singing difficult songs. Miss Nora Anderson as "Ruth" has a beautiful and powerful soprano voice and suited her part. As a loving daughter her work was splendid. Miss Leona Farrell as "Naomi'' ths mother, could not have been better. She looked, acted and sang her part well and is a promising young singer. Orpah, the sister-in-law of Ruth, was very pretty in her character and captivated the audience with her sweet voice and manner. This part was taken by Eva Sorensen. Miss Maiden sang extremely well in her part as "Tarnar." Lucille Allen was very sweet in her part as the child of Naomi. Mr. Myron Holmes sustained the part of "Elimeleck," a good man in Isreal. The two sons of Elimileck were Lea McBride and Wilford Mel-drum, who were both very good, and the love scene by the sons and the Moabitish women were great. .Mr. Jensen as the "Prophet" of Israel and Madge Stevenson as the "Prophetess" were also good. The singing o& the leading characters is certainly worthy of special mention, and no doubt has taken some hard work and practice. One of the prettiest scenes and best no doubt was the trio sung by Ruth, Naomi and Orpah, when the mother tried to pursuade her daughters-in-law to return to their home and they sang "Entreat me not to leave yon." A splondid chorus of girts and boys were the backbone of the cantata, carrying their choruses well, and the costumes added greatly to the reality of t.he affair. Prof. Mitchell, of the Knight Academy, who has charge of the entertainment, Is to be congratulated bn the splendid work of his students, and no doubt deserves a great amount of the credit for his untiring work. Magrath people enjoyed it immensely and invite them to come again. Surprise Party. Mrs. N. C.
