Willard may have n chance with i Johnson because of his youth, his great height and reach and weight and his natural strength. He is a i liarrl hitter, and iairiy clever. Of course his chance against Johnson de- fends upon how far the nig black- champion has gone back as a fighting man. If Johnson was in his prime no amount of .strength and willing- ness could overcome his skill and lighting ability. Willard hasn't had as much experience in the ring as lie should have, yet old-timers remem- hcr that Jeffries' was merely a novice when he beat Bfib at Coney Island and became world's champion. It is often the unexpected that happens in a big right. MONDAY Third Instalment of your friendo about this great serial.

ATHLETICS' JOIN PLAYERS'; FRATERNITY? The one absorbing topic among the ranks of diamond athletes today is whether or not the Athletics Vill eu- tei-ahe Players' Fraternity, now that hey have'been shorn of their diamond aurels. .-'When the fraternity was first'. organized two, years ago, the Mackmen steadfastly refused to join. Before the famous meeting at Cincin- nati..when uniform contracts were ob- tained, the Athletics refused a sec- ond time. A third attempt is to be made within a few days, according to reports from the east, to secure their entrance. From this angle it looks like thn Athletics might come into the fold. With world series no longer as: sured. the Mackmen may figure thut they need protection.

SENSATIONAL WAR FEATURE AT THE EMPRESS The guaranteed attraction at the F.mpress today, the Kalem five com- plete act production of the Boer war is the most complete and sensational war feature ever produced. The the- atregoers of JLethbridge remember "The Million Bid" and "The Gambl- two features of .unusual heart interest. The Boer war is a feature far superior as regards a masterpiece of awe-inspiring sensations than any photo-play yet master- piece that has no rivals in contem- porary photo-play.
