They are perfect in every detail. Jeffries, ac- cording to the pictures, did not re- caire such a terrible beating from the man as might ibe supposed.

LATEST NEWS LATEST RICH MELON FOR SERIES Record Crowds Expected to Witness the Series This Year What a time those Ciibs and Ath- letics -will have when the financial melon is sliced after the world's ser- ies. Judging from reports now going- the rounds this clash will cause all previous championships to pale into significance. Fan armies throughout the middle West are planning to in- vade Chicago, while the grounds at .Philadelphia couldn't 'begin to hold the crowds who sought admission to either game. To establish a new record the title contenders must play to'more than the coin attracted to the and Detroit parks last Oct- ber. Then pause a moment and con- ider the hard luck of diamond celebrities who 'batted for the same title in 18S5, the winner to receive flOOO in cold American :plunks. I .President Comis'key, of the White! for first enth when'Captain Chance's splendid machine John Bruce occupied the chair and opened the meeting by reading the telegram from M. F. Sullivan, of Sas-Eatoon, wherein, he offers to build a curling and skating rink in -Lethbridge provided a site is offered free of rent for a few years. He- then gave the terms of C. J.

CONNIE MACK THE QUIETCST MAN IN BASEBALL Cornelius McGIllicuddy is a name to ponder over anywhere, "Connie Mack" uttered in connection with dignity, and -without a smile. Should the Athletics lose he wears a look of sadness not unlike tne expression of the small boy whose yellow dog has gone astray. Can See Youngsters "Coming" Mack handles his ball players like a woman teaches children in the firmly, kindly and will] everlating patience. He can see a young man "coming" further than anj manager in baseball, and he'll stick in the face of errors and strike outs, cnce he makes his mind the young .a will develop.

If the day is fine and everything iovc- Jy, C. Mack will probably inquire how tbe new athletes are going, and if the j player hits to right or left field. He may even venture the opinion that it's a nice day, that yesterday was nice and that it will be pleasant next week if it doesn't rain. -C. Mack is the hu- man question mark, and information sponge.

Dorothy Campbell of Hamil- ton, ont., tie national cham- mlnent streets of eight cities in the American league, and be recognized by less than six persons. He never ap- pears in connection with a ball game. His methods of living are peculiar. He goes to the ballyards via street car, climbs into the grandstand, buys a score card, surveys the playing sur- face and walks lowly down to the bench. Arriving there he removes MS coats, draws a pencil from his poc- jket and makes a few marks on the ;score card. ie contest begins he sits on knees, body inclined Orward, and wigwag; with Miss Fownes of Pitts- burg. Miss Campbell won with 6 up and 5 to play. his feet, ail of which has great signi- ilcance for the toiling athletes. Arter the game he waits till the crowd leaves the park, climbs into car, and returns to the hotel. We recommend tliese cigarettes io the cultured smoker, ligfees qualify Finest ;
