Both took a lot ot punlsh-Mivwi, but at the end neither had the advantage according to a decision of the newspaper men. Although Mandot was accredited with having the better of four round.s, wliile the others were even, the champion's in-fighting and early aggressiveness won tor hiiu the unollicial decision. Wolgast lost no time early in the fight feeling out his opponent, but went at him with hammer and tonss. He seemed to try tor a knockout in the first round. Mandot stojipcd the . ruslcs and soon began lighting the| clinmpion in his own way. Wolgast cle.irly had tiic advantage ill the in-fighting, Mandot at times appearing absolutely unable to fathom the champion's m,ichinc-Ukc jabs when at close fjuarters. Mandot played for the face and had Wolgast's nose bleeding early in the fight. Wolgast resorted principally to. body blows. The attendance was about 7,500 and the receipts $26,000. i-ETHBRIDQt MARKETS Calgary, Nov. 4.-Calgary may contribute two hockey stars to the Birt-ish Columbia hockey league this fall.

C Ridpath 316 SIXTH STREET SOUTH ft is an undisputable sign of the lack of class among our white heavier that not a single man Jack ot them has anything, to show in the way ot cleverness. Science is at a discount with these gents, who appear to rely entirely on the exciting but dangerous plan ot rushing an opponent and take a punch in order to land one. Palzer, -McCarthy, Willard-all of the ambitious hopes are built along tlvsso lines. None of them gives promise of lasting long as active participants in the modern arena. A glance over the pugilistic annala shows thai a fighter never existed 'who depended almost entirely on his ability to stand punishment and retired, without having reached the stage where incessant heatings had worn away his stamina. Tom Sharkey' was a case in point, writes George T. Pardy. Rverybady knows what a tcugh pleco of scrapping material the hardy tar�was when he began to shluo as a championship poBslbiUty. He could assimilate punishment as a sponge sucks in water, smllo and keep coming lu for more. Men broke their hands upon him. passed out the bep-and iloroest wallops thoy posBessod, and when theyr had exhausted all ammunition they had in stock the 'Sharkey battle-ship rammed them viciously-and the trouble 'was at an end. FitzBlmn'ons put a crimp In the sailor during the early part ot the lalter'B career by punching him in the stomach and sending him down for the count. Bob was declared losev on a foul by Referee Wyatt Earp, but Bubsociuont developments made it clear that Fllz had been tho victim of a Job on that occasion. But with this single exception Bhark�y proved himself worthy of the namQ ot "iron man," as Joe Choynski and matiy others found to their cost. His armor plates wore frequently dented, but never cracked until .Tim JelTTios throw his tremendous weight into the scale and buckled up two of Tom's ribs, besides mauling him in savage fashion generally. From tho erfects of the J-effriCB lia!�t Sharkey uover re- covered. The ability to absorb vital punches and storm his way to victory had departed forever, and he proved easy for Gus Ruhlln and pie for Pitz-simraons in a second meeting, when tlie lanky Cornlshman stowed him away in a couple of; rounds. Kid Cartel- will be remembered' as another determined slugger who won all his victories by dliit of bull-rushing tactics and taking an a'vvful grueling. Time and again Carter was apparently whipped to. a standstill, but at the crucial moment, wb^n groggy, bleed-lug, and almost out;' he would come through with ono terrific punch to an opponent's jaw, apd the othOr chap sat down for the full count Instead of the battered Kid. l^ut -a day finally, came when Carter's'vigorous frame weakened under the strain of repeated hammerings and he developed symptoms ot locotnotor ataxia, whic necessitated his retirement from active service. Ivid Ltivigno, who fought on inuel. the same linos as Battling Nelson, although possessing perhaps 'a shade more soienco than the Dane, also succumbed to the effect ot oft-repeated beatings, the evils of which were augmented by his convl^-iai habits, Like Bat, Lavlgne was usually outpointed by the men he. fought, but, until �t ot a man who always 'bw^ on the l�v�l and fought the good fight to tbe last gasp. Also, he accom|)Uehed tbe piIT' aole of. coming back.when defeated by Jimmy Brltt, by afterward knocking out the pride ot tho coast Ip 18 rounds; lost to Joa Cans and demon-Hi rated his superiority over tho old master by luitllng him to sleep In two Inter oncouutera. Truly a record to 1)0 prou^ of. , Born at Carronshore, near Falkirk, Caldwell was always fond of football, and in his boyhood kept goal for his school. Subsequently ho Joined Oar-ron Thistle as a custodian, and so well did he perfonn that he was prevailed upon to Join Uunipace Juniors, who were members ot the Stirlingshire league. His next move was to East Stirling, one of the Scottish second league clubs, and he rendered such e.xcellent service there that he came under the notice of Tottenham Hotspur. \ Caldwell only remained ono season with the Hotspurs, when Reading obtained his transfer, and for thi-ee years he acted as their keeper. It was with the Southern league team that he gained considerable renown. Standing six feet and weighing list. Slbs., Caldwell is physically adapted for his position, and there is no doubt that he possesses the ability for this onerous post. Meredlth'a Master That James Logan, late of the Aston Villa and the latest addition to Olaa gow Rangers defence should please tho critics, is not to be wondered at, when it is recalled that he was one of the few halfbacks agross the border who has been credited by the English knights of tho pencil with having "smothered" the Welsh internationalist, Meredith. This feat was achieved in a game between Manchester United and Aston Villa on tho grounds of the latter. Quite So Dealing with the subject which is occupying the sfirlous consideration ot all football legislator^ at the present time, namely, "should tho international federation have control of the laws of football 7" nn English writer remarks a'a follows: "It the countries of the continent desire to alter the laws of the game there is no reason why they should not please themselves. But it is .lust as well for them to know-that tho Football Association accepts the rules of the International Bo.3rd of Great Britain and th^t all recognized organizations and clubs play under these laws. All International matches have been decided under these laws A further decline of one cent Is no. tlcenblo today on tho local market grain prices. Butter and egg prices continue to advance. With tho latter very scarce at present. Elevator Prlcea No. 1 Northern........... ?n.G4 No. 2 Northern .. .. .. ...

' * * Mlllwall Aspiring Rumor hag recently associated the name of tho Jl 111 wall club with the football league - and the first division, forsooth! Probably rumor has got hold of some old history, for it is no secret in the imier circles of Lon don football that when Mlllwall, at tho end of the season 1910-11, were in Imminent danger ot relegation to tho second division ot tho Southern league-new grflund and debts and all -negotiations wore entered Into for the transfer of a certain first division club to New Cross. But the Mlllwall players secured tho necessary points to save the club and the scheme fell through. � � . � A National Hero Not even, excepting Bloomer and Meredith, no player bulks so'large in the public gaze all oyer Britain as Bobby Walker, of the Heart of Jlld-lothian F;C. Were you to ask Walker how many caps, he has he would say "Walt a minute. I'll count thefn." But he would, likely never come back to toll you. He is bucD a modest footballer. If he were not the very greatest forward Scotland ever produced, you would like biro just the same. Ho Is everybody's darling. When a Scottish team goes into England tho inhabitants stampede to see Bobby Walker "Never mind the English team; let's see Walker." they say. And they are round the hotel door before breakfast looking for him. .Vou would never hear Bobby's voice in a crowd. But he thinks-my word! You don't want his play described. Everybody knows his style-the ndnilradlo-n of countless spectators', the despair of numerous halfbacks, Jaoky Robertson, who ffhyod seven times for Scotland against England, once epitomized him. "When you are playing against Walker, you would think he has eight feet," aald Jacky, Bobby Is a revel-lor.
