AVHY IS IT that the fellow who says he plays golf just for the exercise, grouses so much about -.uissing the red line car? WHY IS IT that just after you have told friend Wife you are too tired to work in the garden, that someone calls to take you to the golf course? WHY IS IT that you always go? WHY IS IT "SHE" can't understand-that her silence would certainly be golden-to you? WHY IS IT that the v.inners of the handicaps have a sneaking idea that wlien the handicap committee are finished with them the ouf.ook will be real cloudy? WHY IS IT that deep down in your heart you're tickled whon your opponent niiises his drive, or fails to sink that short putt? WHY 13 IT that you always miss your drive when a crowd in an auto has pulled opposite the tee. to see how "they" play that fool game of golf? WHY IS IT that vou always can make that record ^ore when you have gone around alono? WHY-IS IT you can see on their blasted faces not a darn one of them believes you? \s'HY IS IT that when you have done a certain hole in bogey for the first time and are feeling pretty cocky, that some guy will tell you he does it in one less than the Colonel often? WHY IS IT that for a while you actually hate that man? Vv'HY IS IT that'someone is always taking the joy out of life that-away? WHY IS IT that the chap who loses his ball is always about fifty yards in front of where you finally find it tcr !:;ni? WHY IS IT we cannot have a practice putting, green near the club house to do stunts, while we are waiting for tl;at tardy partner? WHY IS i'l' that you growl about tlie course when you have turned in a poor'score? WHY IS IT that just after you have caauaily remarked that you al'.vays do the seventh hole in four, that you drive into the lake, miss two putts and have to chalk up about nine? WHY IS IT that Mr. Visitor can always tell you about his low scores on his home links, YET he chews up that brand new ball of yours by topping it every second shot? WHY IS IT that if you get one corking good drive or sink an exteme-ly long putt in an otherwise rotten score, that you decide to live for a while longer anyway? WHY IS IT we do not all pay our dues RIGHT NOW-the treasiirer and the greens committee would then havo a chance to take a little joy out of life? .NOTE. The sporting editor has do cided to give a prize of three golf balls for the most correct answers turned in for the above column. WHY IS IT he didn't say that thoy would be the three balls his pup chewed up during housecleaaing time? Now York. -There isn't a better judge of pitchers in baseball than CJncIe Wllbort Robinson. The genial manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers, who was the greatest catijher of Ills day a.s a player, knows the fllngers better than Dave Harum knew horses. Tils success with the Dodgers iu 1916 was duo In no small way to the manner in which he handled the sharp-shooteTs during the race tor the flag, and ho deserved most of the credit tor bringins the pennant to Brooklyn. Started With Haverhill. . Born near Hudson, Mass.. Robby started hia baseball career on the sand lots, and his first professional engagement was with Haverhill. AmonE the pitchers on the Haverhill club was John K. Tener, now president of the National league^ Tener and Robinson formed one of the bust batteries ever gotten together in New England, and it was broken up when Tener went to Chicago and Robinson .to Baltimore where his long-standing palship with John Mc-Graw was begun. Chum of McGraw. Robby and ISIcGraw are the greatest pals of to-day. In fact Hobby has a host of pals in baseball, and it is extremely doubtful that he has an epomy anywhere. Fat, nearly 50, always smiling and always cheerful L'ncle Robby has a good word and q friendly smile for everybody. He makes pals out of his players to a certain extent, and his methods of handling them keep the atmosphere cheerful on the Dodger bench. As a student of baseball Robby has always been a plugger. .\ak him this or that about any player in the big leagues he has seen in one ball game and he'll spill enough owl stuit to astonish you. As first lieutenant under AIcGraw, Robby won his reputation for developing young hurl-ers, and ho could have been with the Giants to-day had he wanted to stick. Players Hard to Get. In fairness to Robby it muy be said that as manager of the Dodgers his success win be measurably with the expenditures of the club for talent. If he should be given his choice of players there are few who doubt that he could assemble another pennant winner pretty pronto. But that'3 tho trouble-players are scarce when you need them. Robby believes that Ills 1918 Dodgers are going lo cut a figure in tho pennant race. It was largely his wish that several veterans were disposed of and new blood Injected into the team. He'll get as much work out of a ball club as anybody in the business. BASEBALL FEVER INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE Saturday Games. .Syracuse 5, Jersey City 0.

W'e understantl that another game will be played soon, and the Leans are after blood this time, and we would bo glad to see fans, from all over the province to witness this last match of the world's scries (Alberta section) date of which will be published in all the large cities of the west. Players Coming The Vulcan Baseball team is getting under way, and wo hear that the players will be arriving in the next few days. We notice that Shorty Grey Is getting himself into trim for the coming season, and he is now going lo bod a little earlier. Some of the players are to bo seen limbering up, and we are all ready for the word "go." We take this report to offer all tans a hearty welcome to this town, and we can assure them that the class of ball that will be served this year will bo of the very best, and so far as tho hotel accommodation is concerned the Imperial Hotel is the last word in efficient and up-to-date service. . Put yourselves in the hands of H. W. Noel, the proprietor, and you will enjoy Hie visit to Vulcan, tho best small town iu tho south. Good Crops. The grain Is certainly looking good around here and we are all looking for another bumper year. It has looked like rain these last few days and we hope it will not forget tho south, although it is not sorely needed yet except in spots. Land still continues to move and several deals have been put through tliese last, few days. Wednesday of this week a sale took place at the farm of C, E. Dovey of Ensign, and the results wore very good. Wo understand that the amount realized was over ?S00O.OO This man sold his land at $75.00 per acre and altogether we think that this is a strong illustration of the Vulcan district as to its producing qualities. The acreage is very largo here and about 9.1 per cent, of the crop is in, although some of the farmers are still seeding oats. Buy Dwellings. Several new houses have been erected and we notice that several of the farmers arc getting town dwellings, thus showing that the future of this town looks good to them. Our builder, I''. W. Mercer, Is kept.busy in the building line. The nev/ law governing pool halls is affecting several of our men and the hotel and clijb ha;ils are making alterations to conform to tho now ruling. It will cost the rospoetivo owners, 'Messrs. Noel of tho hotel, and McCutcheon quite a small for-i tune to do this, and it appears that If they did not feel Vllsposed to make the alterations they would have to stop selling soft drinks, etc., and thus practically make a present of their trade to tho local Chinamen, which is not very encouraging. We understand that ' Edgar Kehr, who was operated on for appendicitis last week, is progressing very favorably and wo hope it will not bo long ore he is with'us again. Several more of our young fellows left this week under tho military act. .Messrs. Lawrence, -Marcellus, Carson, Douglas and HolllHtor being from the town unt( (lulte a number from the country. , Roy Coleman, at one time our village blacksmith, paid us a visit this week and it was with pleasure that wo welcomed him. He is now a member of the Flying Corps In Toronto. Leslie Baskus, i^t one time the proprietor of the Ohib Billiard hall in this town, was here on a visit and we understand that he Is now a married man. That is why he appeared so modest and quiet. A Banquet. A banquet was given at the Imperial hotel by the members of tho Vulcan .Motor company, and 5. very pleasant time was had. These affairs are very good from the standpoint ol harmony and It helps to bring the i.'m-ployer and employeo more in touch with one another and at the same tUnn bring satisfaction to the shareholders through (he binding link of harmony, H, C. Jones returned from the east where he was called owing to the sudden death of his father. Wo offer him our sympathies in this time, especially/as during his absence Mr. II. v.. Jones has been notified that he Is liable for the call to the colors!" LONG DRIVES, CALIFORNIA Golfer.� accustomed to the dry- sun-baited, flint-like courses in Southern California, where a coyote has nothing on a golf ball in the matter of legs, smile at tho eastern accounts of long drives. The difference between these sections In toe distances show tho difficulty of establishing world's records in driving. Mike Brady, tho Massachusetts open champion, after a winter at Brentwood, near Los Angeles, laijghs when they talk of record drives down ii) Boston, whore he now is. Drives in Southern California are not measured by 300 or 400 yards, but by the 500. Edward Martin, tho California profcs-slonal, drove last winter to tho odg^' of tho green on a hole measuring .1G0 yards. Brady had a put for 2 on the Uth hole at Brentwood, the hole measuring 470 yards. He overdrove the first green, 42G yards, as did his assistant. Few professionals can out-drive Brady whon he Is mooting the ball right, but in the early days of his stay in California he was outdistanced frequently. Ho was driving a high ball, with u long carry, so that his ball often landed yards and yards ahead of ah opponent. But a half-topped drive would run interminably on the hard ground and finish ahead of his muuh better played tee shot. These cxperieucoR remind the writer of tho remark made last May on tho tee of the home )iole at the Presidio links at San Francisco, tho army officers' course. The hole is over 500 yards with a slight slope from tee to groen. To a military looking goiter on the ten it was said: "You have a nice lonij hole hero." "Looks so now," was the reply, "but wait till July. Then it'll be only u drive and a putt." JOE RIVERS IS NOT dead '\ (From Our Own drrPSDonclent) Vulcan, May 9th The baseball fever Is with us, and some of the would-be ball players got together on Monday to show some of the pros, a wrinkle or two in this manly sport. ' A challenge was thrown out by our worthy iiicturo show manager, M. P. Butler, that he could get a team composed of all fat men that would whip anything in Vulcan. Tho challenge was taken up by our drug clerk , P. C. Robson, and thus teams representing tho Fat and Lean fought a duel on the Vulcan diamond that would have made tho heart of John J. McGraw long to bo ublo to ijrodune the dough sutficionl to buy some of the talent In this district. To .May it was thrilling la not enough, as it was simply wonderful to see some of tho athletic stunts that wore pulled off, and triple plays were a foaturo'ot tho ovonlng. That world-known batsman, Arty Spoonei-, who by ,tho way carries on busluoBB In tho Black season an .a Genes' Furnisher In Vulcan, was In the IjoHt of trim, and ho sent two bojiU-jUul b�}vuy over the C.P.U. track, Mexican Lightweight Had Satisfaction of Reading Own Obituary. Now York.-Like Mark Twain, Joe Rlvors will have (he satisfaction of having read hia own obituary. Tho report was recently circiilated In this city that the one-time contender for the lightweight champlouRhip had gone down with tho TuBcaula, The casualty list issued included a certain Private .lose Ybarra, from Laredo, Tex., and just because Rivers' real name was Ybarra it was taken tor gronlod that tho lightweight hud founil a watery grave. However, perusal of a recent issue of tho Boxing and Sporting Gazette brings to light this paragraph. "Sar Diego, March 23.-Joe Rivers, former contender for the lightweight championship, lost a decision in (our rounds hero tonight to "Chief" Aber-nathy, an Indian aohMcr in the 21st Infantry." Since the Tuscania was torpedoed ifonio weeks before Rivera fought in San Dlogo, wo think It safe to say that tho Ybarra who went down was noS tho Ybarra who is Joe Rivers the box. or.
