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.

He came to America a few years back and got a job in a chop house in New York. One day while passing down Broadway he was attracted by a gymnasium-sign and, always hav- ing a love for boxing, went -into the. place and asked for a job. The man- ager was not favorably impressed with tho boy's looks and refused to put him on the salary list. A young ady stenographer. employed in the- gym, however, took a fancy to the modest little Englishman and plead- ed with the manager to give Welsh I a job teaching a class of young men. THE ENGLISH CHAMPION Ian Hague, Giant Miner Who Fight Sam Langford Is To Sam Langford, the Boston negro, is now in England, where he is to fight the champion of that country, Ian Hague, May 24. The battle is to take place before the National Sporting Club of London. Hague is a big miner and jumped into the limelight by his quick defeat of Gun- ner Jim Moir in less than a round not long ago in London. Prior to :hat contest Hague had .never ap- peared in an event of any import- ance, and it was regarded as a freak match by all but the close admirers of the man. Before the match with Moir back- ers of Hague announced that in the event of a win over, Moir they stood ready to back their man against o ther top-notchers. Hague jumped ,t the chance to meet Langford. The Englishman will have many physical Campbell Bases on .balls, off PiehjYves being practically a 1 to 2 fav- 9.

Reports that Shrubb's right leg had gone back on him since the Longboat race led most of the ex- perts to believe he would fade away after the fifteenth mile. Shrubb went out into the lead after the first i twenty yards and setting a fast pace, opened a big lead in the early stages of the race. BASES ON BALLS. Mostly bases on balls; Three straight is hard lines. Five runs on two. hits against sight hits is a strange baseball story Lethbridge has outbatted the Gas If etnas each game yet, and still they ose. It takes more than batting to win. Three m a row is a lot tp lose at he beginning. But worse starts have results in ehampiotships. It was only a few years ago that Toronto was a pennant winner after losing ine straight at the beginning. Cheer up. LACROSSE WAR NOW WAGED IN TORONTO Toronto, May is likely to be a merry war in local lacrosse circles between the Torontos and the Tecumsehs. It is reported that the Indfans have secured Art Warwick and will hold him this year for ex- hibition games only and play him next summer. It is reported that the trouble all started over the Dad Stewart case and that the officers of the Indians are prepared to go the limit now. Warwick will report at the island after his Regina trip, Charles Querrie, the Tecumseh man- ager, said this morning in regard to Bun Clarke that he did not think the statements credited to Clarke at He- gina are true. Clarke wrote transportation Vancouver, B. C., May a score of 6 to 4, New Westminster today defeated the Regina Capitals in the first match of the series for the M'into cup, played at Queen's Park, New Westminster, before a crowd that numbered people. It was a very slow exhibition that the teams put up, the challengers be- ing in very poor condition, while after the second quarter, the cham- pions were unable to maintain the hot pace which characterized, their movements during the first half of the game. They scored all of their goals in the first forty minutes, and in the concluding periods were un- Garbutt Business College Stafford Block, Lethbridge Day and Night School. I n d i vidual instruction.

They did not suc- ceed in doing this with the cham- pions, however, who held them out- side of the scoring zone all through the afternoon. Two of Retina's oals were scored on long shots, vhile others were registered by Mur- ton and Gorman after some pretty individual work. On their form today, Regina will hardly win the cup. Their defense is good, but the home did not make much of an .impression against the champions, who held them, at -a safe range. t1 On the other hand the champions were continually boring in on Re- gina's goal, and all of their goals came as a result of these persistent rushes. After half time they appear- ed tired and from then till the end of the game they did not exert them- selves very although they had a dozen shots on the goa> to Re- gina's one. Unless the visitors show-'marked improvement in their worki- in the game, it is more than likely that they will return home empty ianded. The play was very clean compared with some of the-mattes that have been played IJiAvpeen eastern and western teams, and rough playing was conspicuous by its absence. Turnbull, Warwick, Gorman and L. Turnbull were badly used up, War- wick being compelled to retire in the tal of 35 minutes, against one New Westminster man for 10 minutes. The final match will be played next Monday.
