RED SOX Pm GOT' LOSERIES Some of Thpse Not on Regular �,^x:iSfaff Got Less Than That Amount Boston^ Sept. 13.-Members of the .Boston American league baseball team, winners of the 1918 world's series, received $20,837.35 as their share of the gate receipts 'from the world series. Manager Barrow and I er p'layers willing to give you the in- One often hears the remark made by young players, how is it so-and-so plays better golf than they do, yet he does not have any more practice- perhaps not so much as they have themselves, still he is able to return lower scores; to answer such questions is not so easy as it may appear to the average beginner. JIany times 1 have heard this expression about different players. It is easy for him to play.he Is a born golfer, t^nd I admit therg is something in the claim. Still everyone who takes up the game seriously can improve his or her play to such an extent as to get as much enjoyment as the low handicap or scratch players. We can't all be champions, you find that in every game plaj-ed. A great mistake that many beginners make when they start is that they have the idea it is so easy to play golf that tliore is nothing much in it; perhaps they have followed some good players round a course and watched them play, probably have seen these players holing out hole after hole In the regular four and five strokes, without any apparent effort, and have came to the conclusion that anybody could do the samo thing, and are surprised -just a little bit-when they try it, to find it is not so easy as it looks. Yet how soon one can learh to play fairly we!!, if they take up the game seriously, and pay attention to any advice, given to them. In the first instance try and get a set of clubs that wi)l suit you, any golfing friend will tell you what to buy, and will help you to select them if you wish him to do so. To me ;it has always appeared as if there i^-as -a certain amount ,pf Tree Masonry amongst golfers as I,have always found theni so ready and williSgrrt'o give all the assistance " they cailt to a, beginner. When you have got the clubs, get yourself accustomed to using them, and find out exactly what shots to play, and how much you can get out of each club, don't be afraid to ask a club-mate anything you want to know. You will always find the old the 14 Boston regulars were eacii given �1,108.45, while Infielder Fred Thomas, �who obtained a furlough from the Great Lakes Navy training statiork to plfiy for the Red Sox, was voted |75Q. Various sums were given to other players now in war service, the trainers, ground keepers and others. The cheque did not include ten per cent., which it had been voted to donate to charitable institutions, and the players instructed Captain Hooper to obtain the amount from the com-miBBion and distribute it among Boston war charities. auto tires OF ALL SIZES vulcanized By the Famous Haywood System RE-TRBADING & REPAIRING By Eixperienced Workmen.

"THE HOUSE OF SERVICE" formation you want, at least that has been my experience, but be sure you pay attention to aiiy advice given. If you are told to do a certain thing, even although it may seem to you o'. little consequence and not worth Jis-tenlng to, try it, probably you will be surprised at the result. It is by paying attention to the minor details that you are going to be a player. You may be told to alter your grip, or that you do not stand correctly to the ball, that your swing is not what it -should be perhaps that you are not holding the club firm enough, by taking the advice given you you may soon find out just what difference there is in playing a shot, as it should be played, from playing it In a happy-go-lucky sort of style. During the summer I was playing with a beginner-one I inay say who has figured in the prize Hat this season-on one of the teeijig grounds I told him to alter his stance and showed him how to stand to the ball. He protested strongly, said he would not be able to hit it at all, and I can't tell you,all that was to happen if he did as I to!d him, X persisted he should try it, which he finally did, played the shot, landed the ball on the green and nearly hoied out in two, he was very much surprised at the result. I was more than amused. To learn the game well takd it seriously, think of -what yon mean to do, it is a  game of concentration. You can't play good golf, and at the same time play thd fool, there is no serious harm in a little friendly chaff in a game, still don't carry it too far. Remember you are out to put that innocent little ball in the hole in the fewest number of strokes poBsible and make up your mind it, or you will have run in to double figures befpre you know what has happened. When you are ehown a shot practice it and practice hard and often until you have got it, then you will play it with confidence, don't be afraid to hit out, put flome devil into your play, and you will �oon be able to return a respectable score. Don't be like a fellow club-mate of mine in the old country of whom I heard a young lady make rather an amusing remapfc. * rt'as waiting mjr SCHOOL POPULAIION OF lABER RAPIDLY (From Our Own Correspondent) Taber, Sept. 12.-The Taber school enrollment the end of last week was 450 as compared with 320 last year. Judging from the pa^t it is likely the enrollment will go over 550 by the end of October. The increased attendance has already necessitated the engagement of a npw teacher and still the class rooms are overflowing. We understand the school board contemplates a van to bring in the children from the Johnston addition during the cold weather. This is decidedly a justifiable enterprise, as there are some 25 or 30 children, mostly little ones, in that outskirt of ihs town who have to walk two miles to school along a bleak, exposed highway. The funeral of the late Mrs. J. Win-wood was conducted Sunday afternoon at 3.30, from St. Theodore church. The service being taken by the pastor, the ReV. Mr. Taylor. The large crowd in atendance expressed the sympathy of the community in this sad fatality. The congregational social on Monday evening in Knox church passed off most successfully. The church lecture room was filled with a largo company, many of whom were .sti-aiig-ers recently arrived in town. The program was of an liitormal order designed especially, to promote movement and sociability, ^^''^i^ wore sung by Messrs. Rowley arid AVoodhouso, a reading given by Principal Gould, and a clarionet solo by Lieut. Sneddon, air. Bryan also gave a brief talk. During the refreshments a small orchestra furnished music and before the close of the program all took pa.-t in patriotic so'ngs. . Mr. Robert Anderson ably and gracefully presided during the evening.' Board of Trade Luncheon On Tuesday the Board of Trade held MEEHAN OUTPOINTS OEtSEy IN N, Y. San Francisco, Sept. 13.-Willie Meehan, New York, local pugilist, now a seaman in the navy, outpointed Jack Dempsey, claimant to the world's championship, in tiree of the four rounds of their bout at a patriotic exhibition here tonight. .^leehan almost took the count in the,second round, but rallied in the next and smothered Dempsey with blows to the body. It was one of a series of bouts given to obtain funds to purchase gymnasium equipment 'for naval training stations. Approximately ?18,000 was obtained. CALGARY OUTCLASSED a luhcheon in tlie King Georgo hotel at 12.30 noon, at which over 40 of the business men of the town atid farmers from the surrounding district sat down. The choir was occupied by Mr. W. A. Blenner-Hassett, president of the Board of Trade. The guest of hon or was Mr. G. R. Marnock, president of the Lethbridge Board of Trade, who, after the lunch had been sternly disposed of, was called upon for an address on Board of Trade work. A brief address was given by Mr. McDellan, of Purple Springs, organizer for Southern Alberta for the Knights of Columbus hut campaign, explaining the purpose of the meeting' and appealing for hearty support. Rev. P. Taylor also spoke, after which the following committee was appointed to attend to the prosecution of the canvass: Messrs. Hourigau, Pollock, Hosey, Cannon, Porteous, Grubb and Mesdames Malo, Ho'sey, Miss Stokes and Miss McDaniels. The local ministers were made ex-offlcio members of the committee. A cofaimittee from the Rotlaw district was present and had a conference with Mr. McLellan as to canvassing their part of the riding.

BEWND'S STORY (CoNTimntD VBOx Fbokt Paov) FOR CHAM Calgary. Sept. 13.-The local all-stars made a poor showing against the Moose Jaw Robin Hooda last night in the first game of the three-game series for the championship of the west when they took the lean end of an n-2 score at the hands of Hank O'Day and his merry men. The visitors had the game all the way through and after the first Inning were never in danger of taking the short etid. The Calgary boys did not piay iheir usual brand of ball, and were hopelessly outclassed in every way. turn to play, there was quite a number of ladies present at the first tee when the player mentioned played his drive; the young lady remarked lhatj man hits his ball in the same way as if ho was hitting his wife, it caused a good laugh amongst the crowd and I asked her what, she meant. Oh, she said ho hits ft, just as it he was frightened to do it, . So don't be afraid of the ball, hit it,'and hit it li^rd and true and you wijl find it will travel far and sure. Also remember to keep your eye op thc^ ball. I hope the weather will be of the best this WRek-end, so that the competition will be played without any futher postponement. ^ . cAVE HUMHL returned to Belgium through Paris, and in Paris there were ominous signs of the coming cataclysm. Dr. Beland had his home in a suburb, some seven miles from Antwerp, and on August 1 he heard serious rumors about the future, while on August 5 war was declared by Germany against Russia and Belgium. Dr. Beland immediately volunteered in Antwerp for Red Cross work, was accepted and began on the staff of the St.^Blizabeth hospital, where he remained on duty until the fall of Antwerp. The German attack upon Antwerp, which began in September, 1914, had for its Immediate cause the German defeat on the Marne. Dr. Beland, like mUny military experts, expected that Antwerp would offer at least six months' resistance, but they had not then known of Germany's 42 centimetre gun and other armaments, nor of the concrete platforms prepared long before the war. Of this latter fact Dr. Beland had positive and ample proof. The strik-inf feature of the defense of Antwerp was the artillery duel of the Germans and the British Naval Brigade. Winston Churchill had visited Antwerp and promised help. Within two days the Naval Brigade was in Antwerp, and kept up such a continuous fire that the Germans thought there were at least 50,000 of them. Work Naval Brigade. "It was an undoubted fact," said Dr. Beland, "that whatever may be said to the contrary, the British Naval brigade was the means of enabling the Belgian army to escape, and assume the position upon the Yser canal,> whore It stands undefeated until this day." Dr. Beland, after many interesting and pathetic details of the flights of Belgian refugees, told how he himself remained at his duty at St. Elizabeth's hospital until forced to leave. In 30 hours 25,000 shells fell In the city, which they destroyed, but missed entirely the Belgian headquarters. The first shell which lilt the hospital slightly wounded Dr. Beland on the head, and he returned to his suburban home. Prom the roof of his house ho saw the whole city of Antwerp in ilames, including the steeple of its famous cathedral-an unfon gettable sight. Dr. Beland secured with difficulty an fHiibilUnce, and in the midst of all this turmoil collected and treated wounded soldiers. Made a Prisoner. For three months after the fall of Antwerp, the road to Holland was open, but it was closed just before Chriatmas, 1914, by orders from the higher authorities. Dr. Beland then asked for a permit to go to Holland, and while this was at first granted, under certain restrictions, it was afterwards cancelled, and the guarantee of his immunity was proved to be but another "scrap of paper." Within two days Dr. Beland was taken to Antwerp, dealt with by an arrogant German officer, literally thrown into a room and informed that "under orders from Berlin," he must be interned. "You will, however," said the officer, "be a prisoner of honor. You will live in aii hotel." "At whose expense?" said Dr. Beland, who thought things were shaping up not too badly. "Oh, at your own," replied the officer. Answered Dr. Beland, "That is not 80 good." Within two d-ays he received a sudden order to go to Berlin, and had but a few moments to say good-bye to his wife, whom he never saw again. On June- 6, 1916, after a joui^ney absolutely without food. Dr. Beland arrived, under guard, in Berlin. Once again the ordej- was the favorite German one of "Kommen see rait," and he was taken to a -tfullding of what sort he at first had no idea. He was shown into a room where sat three men* whom he took to be Germans, but soon found to be Englishmen. "Where are we?" asked Dr. Beland. "We are In jail," was the answer. "At .least," said Dr. Beland, "we will get some food." . He learned to his dismay that nothing would be served out until the morning, and then only bread. One of the inmates, however, named Robinson, who turned out to be a jockey, shared with Dr. Beland, some bread he had saved, but to the doctor's . dismay, there was no butter. In the morning the governor made his round and his "Gute morgen," sounded always, De Beland said, like "Go to Hell." af50 Fellow Prisoners. The jail in which Dr. Beland now found himself incarcerated and where he remained for three years, were 250 prisoners of all nationalities, including neutrals, and one Canadian, the doctor himself. There were also several German prisoners, including two members of the Reichstag who had fallen into ill-favor with the government. Food was secured by Dr. Beland and his confreres by purchase in Berlin, by the prison fare supplied, an* by parcels from the Old Country. In March, 1916, rationing began In Berlin, and the prisoners were reduced to living upon the prison fare. This consisted of eight ounces of black bredd, supplied in the morning, soup at 11 a.m.. and soup again at 6 o'clock, , "Eleven o'clock soup," said Dr. Bef land, "was more respectable than that supplied at 5 o'oloc^k. "But e-verythlag ma better than hen ring soup, which was altogether 'too much.'" For two hours In advance the prlB� oners were made aware by their -senss of smell that heiTlug soup was on the menu. Getting Food From Outiide At this stage Dr. Boland put hlm� self In touch with Sir George Perley, In London, and after a delay of threa months, tluring which time he \ma constantly hungry, the first parcel arrived. That was an event Which ho never would forget, and to himself and his little group of friends it was a very real banquet. Later, the Red Cross parcels began to come In, and alter that they came with fair regu-larity. Commenting on the German officer Dr. Beland said that between the lowest rank of commissioned ofHcer and the highest rank of N.C.O., a great gulf was fixed, the N.O.O. being in servile subjection to his officer, without knowledge of what self-respect meant. During the three years thot he was confined In his cell, there wore thr'ce sounds which he would over forget. These were the two 1,'oavy turns of the key and" the pushing In of the bolt when the door was closed upon him. Many stories were told by Dr. Beland in his quaint way of the irrepressible good humor of his English friends, and, Inforentially, of his own. For instance, when an order was given that, when peeling potatoes, prisoners should throw the skins into a certain bucket, where they could be preserved and afterwards made use of-possibly in soup-one of the English prisoners offered as an excuse, "I eat mine." Another of them, in writing home to his wife, said, "We get just enough food to keep us from dying - not enough to, keep us living." At the end of Dr. Boland's first year in prison a rumor got about that ha was to ho released. A banquet was surreptitiously arranged for and held in Dr. Beland's cell. In addlWon, he got II permit, and was allowed two hours out, his first time in a year, to buy some clothing. Ho was brought back and later learned that' his .re-; lease had been vetoed by the superior authorities. His prote?t against Iho, breach of ail international law in keep-, ing him in durance was the cOiiimoD; German one of "Ess 1st Kreig!"-"It-Is war!" � � One more year passed, during.whlclt Dr. Beland Was never outside the prison walls", and on his health tailifig; he, backed by the prison physician! made strong, representations and ^yaa finally allowed three hours' comparai tiro freedom twice a week. , . .Attempt* at Escape Dr. Beland then gave details of many attempts of the. prisoners to escape. In one day 11 Britishers man-; aged to break out, only to be recaptured- after a very brief spell of free� dom.-: ; . Thie. great day came at last wlieil Dr. Beland learned . of hjs exchange, said, good-bye to-his English friends, waB.taken to the Dutch frontier; cr0aa-eU into Holland, and was "Sgaln a free man." On reaching London, the restored prisoner was graciously received by the king at Buckingham palace, an4 was treated with unforgettable kind; ness by all. Dr. Beland said in conclusion: "Twenty-three allied nations, am-ongst them being the three-most Important democracies in the world", stand together today for honor, justice and liberty, which have been traihpled on by Gennony to the Ignoiv ing' of all International law. Canada is proud of her .eons, and those of them who have made the supreme sacrifice will be enshrined in her m6tu'' ory as long as the St. Lawrence fl6w� to the seas, and will be held In honor in all coming generatloni. What Cardinal Mercler said was true: 'A man who cMes for his country Is a sainlr.'" Dr., Beland concluded -Trlthi^.'stliv ring appeal for unity of races in Canada, speaking on behalf of his. own people in Quebec, who, ho said when they realized that this was a war la protect their homes and firesides, were just as eager for the tray as any othef. ir ;.ALk KINDS Of A'UtO'-RBP^IR: 384 llthi street Cfttiitlk: Lathbridoe, Alt*: Your storage Battery Is the Heart of Your Automobile!
