The whistle had hardly blown before the Sons' in trouble. A corner got pant him, and ihortly after it wan kicked off, McMurtrie sent in a warm one which Coles cleared with little to gpure. A little luck .for the. Collies would given them the load right there but the old bird, luck, was not perching on the shoulders of either team last night.

When about fifteen minutes, half had passed uneventfully fay, White took a chance and poked a long one from centre.

However, the passing breeze was of little conse- quence, and nothing came of a warning from his nibs, the urapa. Coles was called en to stop BO me hot.ones during the last ten min- utes. He did it too, and there was no luck about it this time. Cole's play: ed a plucky1-game all through, and gave a better exhibition of goal teml- ng than has beon seen in some of the championship matches in Lethbrldge. -And there la to it Each team left the field with one point to Us credit.

Pincher Creek will be Mncleod's opponent for the Initial fixture. On 'Saturday the second event takes place at Taber when the Lethbrldge nine face'the champions of last year and the Brewery Cup holders. But the meagre accounts have drifted in as to the calibre the teams but the little that has been learned bespeaks of amateur baseball of the highest ortler. Lethbridge will take the fastest line-up of men to Saturday that has ever represented the town In amateur ball games. Harry Pulley will be behind the bat receiving the rapid fire of the "Quaker Oats Kid Slick Meyers, who had the pleasure of taking the Taber champ's measure twice last season. On first sack a new light ta local baseball will he seen in Dines, the Spokane city leaguer; he has all the qualifications of the sea- soned ball player and is a hitter trom away back. The heavy combination :hat has been picked for the other infield positions promises to hold the tort against any kjnd of an attack. On second base will be seen the batjtle- scarred warrior.
