LOUIS CYR, WHOSE DEATH OCCURRED IN MONTREAL, PERFORMED MANY EXTRAORDINARY FEATS IN WEIGHT LIFTING The dentil of Louis Cyr, which occurred in Montreal, marked the passing of world's champion strong man who was for years one of the best known flsuvos in (lie world of athletics. Death came utter an illness from which hi- had suffered more or less for tho past 12 years. Louis Cyr was one of the strongest men the has ever known and in Ms prime was a magnificent specimen of a physically well-developed man. Mt, was born at at. Cyrien, Quebec. 49 years ago. lie started his career as a man in 1SS2. In Richard K. Fox. the noted sporting man of New York, took him under his management ami exhibited him in al! the European capitals slid in Lomirai the Canadian aihlete met the world's most renowned strong men. He e.-'.sily defeated thoui in fells of strength and established an record by lifting with his shoulders a platform bear- in- a weight of pounds. Iu ISSS he bent his own record in Uoston by lii'iins a platform carrving IS men. weishius iu all 4.300 pounds. He subse- quenth- gave, exhibitions of His marvelous strength in all tho leading cities ami towns of Canada and the Suites. lie could all the principal smuts of the average strong man with a large number others could accomplish. Cyr was for a short time employed on tho jlontreal police force before becoming a professional athlete. His srent strensih was tirst revealed to him while in that position and in encounters with several rough characters and tougbs in that city he first realized what au exceplional power ho possessed. Any ordinary man he could just pick up and shake like a terrier would a The bad men of Montreal soon learned to give him a wide berth. He could handle with ease and raise above his shoulder, dumb-bells that few athletes iu the world could lift off the ground and that, no ordinary man could stir. He was a man of tine mlflligon.ce. well educated-and spolte French and English with fluency. He was a most genial and kindly man socially and made hosts of friends everywhere he went, being a man of splendid moral character and in every respect a model athlete of which Can- adians were justly proud. He was beloved by his family and relatives and the idol of his French compatriots. HE'S AFTER TAYLOR Former Well-Known Grappling Artist Looking for Match A. M. Olson, once a well-knowa wrestler in this vicinity, is anxious to try conclusions with Jack Taylor. Olson Is a powerful and heavy man, and when follow- ing the game more ardently than at present, he was good enough to go against the best of Uie grap- plers. He thinks he can get back into shape and defeat Taylor. His weight is now in the vicin- ity of 240 pounds. Some beef. CHURCH BOYS INDOOR BASEBALL CHALLENGE HOCKEY MEETING THIS EVENING There will be a meeting of the Lethbridge 'Hockey League this evening in the store of T. C. Rldpath, Sixth street. The question of a rink will be the main topic, and all clubs of the league are particularly re- quested to have a representa- tive on hand. The Knox Bible class here- by issue a challenge to the St. Andre'w's Church boys to a game of indoor baseball at the Y. M. C. A., on Tuesday even- ing at 8.30. INDOOR BASEBALL MAKES HIT AT "Y" Indoor baseball holds sway at the Y. M. C. A. just now, and it is making a big bit with the members. Every- body is getting into the game. It is no juvenile pastime, by any means, and the oldest members are taking a lot of fun out of it. The diamond is perfectly marked out, du-e to the ex- ertions of Physical Instructor Gilmore, who is pushing the game ahead, and making it one of the head-liners of "gym." sports. The gymnasium isjiot over spacious for indoor baseball, but that, apparently, is no drawback, judging by the keen zest with which the players enter into the game. GLASGOW OVERWHELMED London, Nov.

NAPOLEAN LAJOIE PAYS ELOQUENT TRIBUTE TO "SMOKY JOE" WOOD Napoleon Lajoie, who has faced fill kinds of pitchers since he made his bow in major league company back in 1S9G. says tliat Joe Wood of the Boston Red Sox never 1ms been equalled. Lajoie, one of the biggesi batsmen in the American league this year, when asked the other day to tell just why the Red Sox twirler is in a class by himself, replied: He's everything development, stamina, iron nerve ami brains, also natural pitching skill. Wood excels in knowing how to pitch to different batsmen. His hef.dwork Is one of the reasons why lie is at the head of the class. Mo believes in mixing 'em up, which in my opinion is the most effective'method employed to deceive hitlers. Look over the records, and you'll find tliat the most successful pitchers in any kind of company have learned the knack of mixing the East with the slow ones without altering their delivery. "Wood looks like the swiftest pitcher "I've ever faced. He seems to have more speed than Amos Rusie, Rube Wuildell, Rube JMarquard, Walter Johnson and others I could name. Yet he de- velops this wonderful speed with an easy overhand motion which enables him to keep his balance and control the course of the ball. It is not exaggerating it a bit when 1 say that at times I have been unable to see Wood's fast ball as it sped over the plate. "With the same overhand motion Wood can pitch a tantalizing slow kind that looks as if it never would reach the plate. Then he can a wide curve ball, delivered with the same motion, which is a bird. Wood didn't have this curve last year, but it suddenly came to him when the Red Sox were training in the south last spring. He's perfected it since so that it's about the quickest breaking ball I've ever tried to hit. Wood has all the American league batsmen tabbed. overlooks a fault." Princeton and Yale Tie Princeton, N.J., Nov. ami Yale met in their annual football game on University field today, and played each other to a six to six tie. j So evenly were tho teams matched, that neither had the jiowor to rush the ball to a touchdown. Each team put up a stonewall defence, and all i the scoring was on goals from the field and a gout from place-meut. The result of the struggle was imsat- isfacrory to both sides, and especial- i ly to tho thousands of Princeton rooters, who saw the game slip from their hands in the last few minutes of play. Harvard Saves for Yale Cambridge, Mass., Nov. vtird, using only a part of its offen- sive tactics, defeated Dartmouth to- day by a score of 3 to 0. -Harvard i played, a conservative game, its prifl- clpal batteries of attack'hemg kept to be used, against Yale in the annual game at New Haven next Saturday.. AMERICAN BEAT ENGLISHMAN Paris, Nov. Smith, an Am- rican middleweight fighter, defeated Harry Mansfield, an Englishman, here tonight. "CHARLEY'S AUNT" DEAD London, Nov. Sydney Pcnley, of "Charley's Aunt" and "Pri- vate Secretary" fame, one of the best- known'comedians on the British stage is dead, aged sixty-o-ne. A FALLING STAR Carlisle Indians Beaten Philadelphia, Pa., Nov. Play- ing a fast game from the 'beginning, the Uniyersity of Pennsylvania's foot- ball team gained a victory over the Carlisle Indians this afternoon by the score of 34 to 26.
