Trus- tee Koran, in speaking Ol putting up the oW cup; said the "trophy represented the hociey cnam- plonship ol Cinada, and that the trustees had no objection how many games'tce teams wished to play for it, providing that "the games were for the hockey cbampioaship of Can- and the club holding the trophy late the proper care of it.

(By FREDDIE WELSH, Llghtvtdght Champion) The Ritchie-Cross, fight Vas the best for ten rounds I ever SAW in rsy life. and. Incidentally, the best battle I Save ever eeen either man put up. it aas'a desperate costost from the first b: 11, Md both men tool; enough hard rights oa tie jew to hsvc stopped any ordinary man. TLo champion put up championship battle and showed wonderful generalship when he was'hurt. acd that was often, lie ia the only man I seen diht Cross at his own game, exchanging rights with the dentist. of the knockdowns by Kitchie in the third round, in my opinion It was a very even an'nlr. Both clean, and often, and 1 think it was an even exchange all through. Ritchie came, near ending tho fight in the third round, when he dropped Cross -with a short, snappy right after bliciiinE tha East Slder with his left CROSS NEAR KNOCKED OUT went down in a heap and looked beaten then, but his head- work saved Mm after tho count. He blocked and recovered enough strength to come back strong the remainder ol Ae round, flehting back fiercely and blow for blow. Ritchie was cool and iiever left himself too open at any time. It was always after Cross missed punches that ho scored the, hardest punches. Cro-s hit the hardest blows, especially his left hooks; but short- arm" righU were UM best 1 ever He surprised me Ws clean.punch- Ing, and very seldom did lie rate. When covered tlie champion ripped them to the tody ana got hem far under enough to'land clean. Ritchie, not being toofcmillar with tto ales pounded the kidneys in the fifth round, and later on used bow clinches, which brought hisses. Those were the only times Ritchie ougat'loul, but they not serious enough him.

FROM STEAMER AND KILLED A DEER (Pelerboro Examiner) It is the irony of fate that while some hunters trample through the tingled UAderbrusn of ncrth- ern Woods for two weeks Without setting a sight of a deer, that one of these antlered monarchy of the forest should commit suicide bt swimming the bcw of Stony Lake steamer, yet which Is- what happened on Tues- day.
