If enduring, grevious lacerations to tender sensibilities can lend the proper atmosphere to this Imef history, then it should lie cor- rect and Interesting from every stand- point. To ihe the subject of a. public demonstration by being rudely hoist- ed to the shoulders of a dozen or two Tommies and followed by a mob of Jeering (not cheering) khaki-clad men merely because the tone of cer- luin write-ups ot. recent baseball games was not appreciated, is an ex- perience to foe avoided by those seek- Jng retirement and solitude. Nevertheless, notwithstanding. the fact that public mirth may be pro- voked, it is felt that it is due Che public at large that an unbiased ac- count be given of llio proceedings of (his afternoon which have so cheered uud made the hearts of the soldiers iglad. Let the worst be known at once. The Civilian baseball team f wan walloped to the fearful tune of 1 3 by the Tommies. After the splendid way the Civil- ians have been holding their own by ?wlnnins two games out of the three Which had been played, the result came as a sad surprise to their sup- (porters.

Three pitchers wero tried, Redford. Thompson and Cairncross, but all were alike to the hard swatting sold- ier boys. Nothing could stop them. They started in the first inning and continued right on through to the seventh, when perhaps the most aw- 'ul merry-go-round swatfest ever wit- nessed in Cardston took place. In this inning the soldiers made, 9 runs, giving one of their men two tallies in Ibe one inning and several of their men an opportunity to bat twice. 411 through the game the rooters for the Civilians were rather silent, while an entire squadron continually shouted and cheered as though pos- sessed. Revenge was evidently very iweet to them. The game by innings follows: Tommies.........
