Big Swede Led the Way At McKELViE McGUIRE -Sole Aaents for OF ENGLAND CHURCH PARADE Yesterday evening the Sons of England held their annual church parade, about forty members of the order meeting at the Oddfellows' hall and marching- in a procession along Dufferin street to Enox church, where the Union Jack, which had headed the procession, was draped over the pulpit. The front seats had been re- served for the guests of the evening, and the rest of the church was com- fortably filled by the large congrega- tion. The choir sang a beautiful an- them adapted from Longfellow's Psalm of Life. The pastor took as his subject the cross of St. George. After welcom- ing the S.O.B. of the con- gregation the pastor referred to the Union Jack as the emblem, of the British Empire and to St. George as the. patron saint of the English. He ;told the story of St; George and the Dragon and spoke of the martyrdom .of the original George, a Roman sol- dier who died in 303 as a martyr to the cause of Christianity, thus slay- ing the dragon of paganism. "The visturs of George were the virtues appealing to the English race. They are the virtues of Christ as well. Courage was the chief one. Much of thft vast British Empire has come to us unsought, and it is good courage to say 'What we have we will hold.' But moral courage to do what is right is also important. We need courage to say no and to figHt against our animal passions. Christ was most courageous with the shad- ow of the cross ever before him. "The second virtue is self-sacrifice. There is a difference between a sol- dier and" a hangman though both kill. The soldier -is honored because lie risks his own life. Too many peo- ple are looking after 'No. 1' and are playing the popular game of 'beggar my neighbor.' There is more in life than selfishness. England would, not have been a Christian land today if Skin Diseases. A diseased or disfigured skin will alwayi leave its stamp" on the-mind of the incU vidnal. Many people suffering from dis- figuring skiii diseases avoid society and low all pride in their personal appearanca When the skin breaks out in eruptions and. tores it is due entirely to an impure condition of the blood. In all such Burdock Blood Bitten will purify the blood and drive all the impurities out of the system. EASE Mrs. J. J. Magee, it .were not for men like George. "The S-O.E. is a patriotic organ- ization and the church parade is held every year to commemorate the birth of the beloved Queen Victoria. Christ was too patriotic to start a worldly kingdom what the people needed was the deliverance .from their sins. A soldier is often "called to fight for his country and to lay down his life. We ought to live for Christ. We need both courage and self sacrifice. We should show, patri- otism by leading true and honest lives. The dragon was a i'abled mon- ster but there are now- many actual, more dangerous dragons such as im- pure desires and selfishness. We need the power of Christ in our struggles against the" dragons of today. "So we can ask for nothing better for every -Son of England and for all of us, whatever our nationality than King Arthur's ideal of knighthood be fulfilled in us. "To break the heathen and to up-' hold the Christ, To ride abroad redressing human wrongs, To speak no slander, no, nor listen to it. To honor his own word as if his God's, To lead sweet lives in purest char- ity, _ and if any great ever enters our lives may it be fitted "Not only to keep down the base in man, But teach high thoughts and amiable words, And courtliness and the desire of fame, And love of truth and all that makes a man." 6 12 11 ..9 5 2 8 8 13 11 KETCHELL WILL WIN No man is better qualified to ex- press an opinion as to the result of the 20-round fight between Johnson and Ketchel on Oct. 12, at Colma, than Jack O'Brien, who declares Ketchel will wrest the. championship from the negro, giving several im- portant reasons. "In the first place Ketchel is the. hardest hitter in the world said O'Brien. "He is the 'greatest puncher I have ever met, and that means that he excels Fitz- simmons in. this respect. "In the second place, Johnson, in my opinion, cannot take severe pun- ishment, either in the stomach or on the neck or jaw. He is an awkward man. I will admit he knows much about the art of self defence, but Jr., Kinmount, }when made him back up with body writes: "Intheupring of 1906 I was troubled with a Rash that broke out all over mo.

He can't hit while in motion. Johnson is not in Kctchel's class when it comes to hitting and gameness, two qualifications that make real .cham- pions invincible. "Of course we all know that Kctoh- el fights so openly that he is com- paratively easy to hit, but Ketchel is much faster on his feet than Johnson, and is vastly more aggres-J sive.

The champion's time was 2 hours, 48 minutes and 11 1-3 seconds, more than eight minutes slower than Henri St. Yves' time in the New York Marathon. St. Yves led until the fifteenth mile was passed, w.hen he was forced to drop out because of a blistered foot- was lifty seconds ahead Svanberg. It looked as if had tripped the Frenchman, but Yves explained after he had limped off the track, that lie could not have run any further anyway. Johnny Hayes finished second, and Fred Ap- pleby. the Englishman, third. Tom Longboat, the Canadian In- dian, dropped out of the race after the fourteenth mile. He explained that he felt the effects of an old sun- stroke and did not dare to run any ntcrs. The others who finished in order were Matt Maloney, fourth Simp- son, fifth and Alex Thibeau, the Chicago amateur who turned profes- sional for this race, was last. _ Some sprinting exhibitions were given during different stages of the event Longboat in the eighth mile passed St. Yves, and Svanberg. Hayes took up third place. Then little change until the 14th mile, when Svanberg was 50 seconds 'be- hind. The crowd went wild'with ex- citement when St. Yves dropped out, cheering him as he tied a big cloth to his foot and limped away. At the nineteenth mile Hayes sprinted on the soft ground and gained a lap, but could not keep up the pace. Svanberg evidently had no doubt of LONGBOAT AND POWERS AT PEACE The following members of the Cale- donian Football club requested to be at the hall at 6.30 tonight Boss, Carr, Crawford, Leitch, W.

San Francisco, Cal., May tling Kelson knocked out Dick Hy- of California, this afternoon in the 23rd round of a scheduled 45- round bout. The contest was one of the most vicious ever seen in a local ring. The fight was fairly even till the 14th round, after which Nu- son took the lead. Hyland was knocked out by a left hook to the stomach after he had been floored several times in the two preceding rounds. v Both men weighed in within the agreed limit, 135 pounds. Willus Britt acted! as director gen- eral in Kelson's corner. The ring was entered at 2-55 by the men. Betting was stationary at 10 to 4. Hyland won the toss and took the southwest corner with .back to sun. Time called 3.11 p.m. In round 7 .the crowd groaned when Kelson hit a bit low. Hyland landed two rights on..Nelson's kidneys. Nel- son wrestled his man .around the ring and the crowd hissed. Kelson landed hard left on his eye, wrestl- ing him against the ropes, and was cautioned. In round 12 the best blow was a staggering right to jaw by Kelson. Round 13 was one of the best 01 the fight. Kelson peppered Hyland's face, forcing him against the ropes. Hyland fought back fiercely, rocked Kelson's head with a left chop and shot a right to face. Kelson swung left to chin and Hyland looked ser- ious. A left to body caused Hyland to clinch, but" he quickly recovered and landed two terrific rights and a left to Kelson's head. In round 17- both men came up wily. They exchanged hard rights and lefts to jaw. Kelson "uppercut twice. Hyland then rushed and pep- pered Nelson; s face, forcing him against the ropes. In a rally the crowd came to its feet as Hyland sent Kelson against-the ropes twice with swings to the jaw. In round 21 the men fought fierce- ly at close range, during which Hy- land was sent to his haunches, came up and fought Kelson to a stand- still. Then Kelson sent his man to the floor with a fearful right to the jaw. Hyland was down nine secoiius and rose glassy eyed. After that he tottered aroxmd the ring dazed as Kelson waded in with merciless pre- cision. Round looked much dis- tressed. Kelson caught him on the jaw tind a moment later two rights sank into Hyland's stomach. He showed gameness but went to the floor. The round ended with the lo- cal lad almost out. Round rushed Hyland to the ropes and to the centre. Hy- land's knees wavered. It required no effort for Kelson to send him down. Suddenly Nelson hooked his left with all his power to the pit of the sto- mach and the dropped.
