There was a good crowd at the encounter, about sturdy people attending the battle. The game was opened with proper preliminaries. The ceremony did not begin until well on towards the set- ting sun. Then the Mayor in due form grasped the ball in the hand that signs the mandates at the city hall, and spat upon the ball, rubbed his paws upon his pants, and flung two balls. President Fleming, of Medicine Hat, was the receiver, and a pretty punk catcher he was, too. And all this having occurred in due order, the coast was clear and the game began. The 'first thing that attracted the Calgary fans was the way that Mir. Pete Standridge hurled the projectile.

While keeping out %he heat and glare of the sun, they admit every breeze and permit free circulation of air. They can be seen through from the inside but not from tbt outside, giving seclusion and privacy. VUDOR Porch fhtdtl are substantially made of wide linden wood slats bound to- gether with strong seine twine; and they last for years. They are stained in artistic weather-proof colors, green or brown, and come in various widths.
