Don't Let Your Clothes Wear You Out 0ROGHESS I An eminent authority says, "Ill-fitting, badly made clothes not only make one look old and decrepit, but actually cause premature decay. Think of a man being welded in bad fitting clothes for two- thirds of his life." Willie Keelex admits, that he is not as fast as, formerly. The great little man may be replaced by young blood before the season is a month old. When peering over the silver lining just remember that the April down- pours make the .dear .littltf double- headers flourish. If Eddie Phelps conies back in any thing like his old-time form Bresna- han will have a worthy alternate and the" Cardinals will be strong behind the bat. Since learning that the Washing- ton players ,were afflicted with stage fright owing to the presence of Pre- sident Taft, every American League owner has wired a special invitation to Bill to attend every game. Columbus has purchased Outfield- er Clarke from the Cleveland Amer- ican League Baseball Club. i Badly-made clothes will break a man's health, just as surely as bad habits will. In fact, wearing poorly made, ill-fitting clothes is a bad, habit that influences mind and body alike. Wearing "Progress Brand" Clothing is a habit of good business sense, of good economy and is conducive to good health. "Progress Brand" Clothing keeps a man young, because they fit perfectly, and are always easy and comfortable.

Dick Padden, as graceful an infield er as ever pulled on spiked has been sent to.Little Rock by St. Paul, which had him on the reserve list. Dick has been playing baseball a long time but ho is still able to teach the youngsters a lot about the game. Chadbourne. who is playing a graat game fox Indianapolis, was with the Boston Americans a couple of sea-j sons ago. He couldn't hit a lick and was a shine fielder then, but a year or two in the eastern-league taught him baseball, and now, if he contin- ues his good clip, he will be good for j the big leagues next season. Thatj means another piece of easy money for Watty. The report that Johnny Kling would i report to the Cubs is denied at the j club's President Mur-j phy says he has heard nothing of the i matter, CITY FOOTBALL LEAGUE The executive of the Lethbridge City Football League met at the office of the Western Plumbing Co. at 8 p.m. last night. All the delegates were present. In order to make the work easier the work of the secretary was divid- ed. F. R. F. McEitrick is cor- responding secretary and treasurer, and S. W. Tuckwell to be recording secretary. The official league forms were gi- ven out to the respective delegates for the signing on of the respective players for the league matches. A special meeting of the executive At the same time the local rivalry j will be keen in the contests for the two trophies. The first game for the Buchanan trophy is between the Ca- ledonians and the S. 0. E. on May 18th to 'be followed on May 20th by a game between the Maple Leafs and the A. 0. F. When the players choose which club they will serve there will some interesting surprises in store. SHRUBB IS EXPECTED TO WIN Longboat and Shrubb are. matched to run fifteen miles at Montreal to- morrow, in a race managed by the Montreal Star, and the proceeds will be given to the .Children's Memorial HospitaL It was not believed that the Indian could be- persuaded to get on a race with the Englishman for the latter's favorite distance, but Longboat is. there and says he is fit. Pat Powers, the Eastern league president, who has the Indian under contract, consents to let him run, but insists on his share of the receipts, ON BISLEY TEAM There oj.-e two British Columbia -rir flemen, one from Alberta and two from Winnipeg, in ihis year's Bisley team.
