Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 17, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER, 17, One Fm Under JSrain Wagon- Another Was (n Atito Smash The Sport Page mmiau Has Made and Lost Fortunes in Promoting Big Athletic i. Events Jack Curley. oiice a boxer, and the man who put Jess Willard in. the running, Is a well edupated and well-ipeakingr feUow. The pressmen laufihed long ago when Jack talked about ma^chlns Jim Krnn, the Pueblo fireman, to tight ck Johnson. They laughed, too, when Jack got �wa}- with all that money in the Hack-Bnschmldt-Gotch wrestling match in Chicago. In the wrestling match Jack made a tortnne, but in the fight be was a big loser. When Curley matched Flynn to tight Johnson he was roasted all along the aine. He had made a t>ar-tel of pioney out of a wrestling match, knd he saw no reason whi he should not clean up another big stake hy brlBglng off another battle in which Jack Johnson, theh a Waiing star, wonid shine as one of the principals. In this Curley was greriously disappointed. He lost all the money he had made at Chicago on the Johnson-nynn battle. He had promised Flynn a chonk, win or lose, but after the battle, finding himself hroke SERVICE STATION HENRYJ.DENN Proprietor All Makes of Batterisa Charged and Repaired - S11 7th Street 8.

The question was put with Uie intention bl haTing Curley reply that he would sell the automobile. Instead of doing that Curley said: "Yes; 1 hare the automobile. It's mine now, but It's yours if you care to jump In and ride away with it." Flynn boarded the automobile and took possesadon of it It was a tine machine and valued at $5,000. Curley never whined over his losses, but took his medicine like a man. In no time he had other fighters on his staff, and it was his' hustling that put the Johnson-WiUard battle over at Havana and that put him on his feet again. Jim Jeffries, too, came of fine stock, and his father being a clergyman in Ohlp, Jim received a fine education in his early youth. _ The father told of how Jim, being endowed by nature with a sturdy disposition was always ready for anything. He ia Jait excellent shot and would take chances that some men would hot dream of. He has had many adventures, and one which is worth reputing happened while he was In training for his last fight with Cor-bett.

There was a certain golfer who was noted ;for his Variety of excnses for tailure to play as well as he thought he ahonU. A tiiipnd of his, with whom he - often - played, after heating him one dyy, received this explanation: "Jdjt look at this, no wonder I couiaft't play this afternoon, I've bnttohed my waistcoat up to the wrong button.. I wondered why I did not follow through propfrly.' "No . wonder;, indeed," came back th� other dryly. "I know how you feel.-Yesterday I simply could not giBt my stance comfortable anyhow, and when I came in, what do you sup-pose I found. Well. I'll tell yon; I had put a right hand shoelace in my l�ft shoe.'' . eAWL GOOD FOR ALL SOLDIERS Practice With Ball Improves Skill in Tossing Hand Grenades at the Enemy The great good that the American national game of baseball Is dofng for the allied soldiers Is shown by a recent' dispatch received at the French embassy at Wa'shingtoh from France. Arlie Latham, former big league coach, who has been in �higland some time coaching the Yankee fighters in their baseball and athletic games, always bblieved that the Americans would excel as hand grenade throwers because of their knowledge of baseball. Latham's prediction is borne out by the following despatch: "Johnny Erers, who has just returned to Paris after spending 10 days teaching men in the French array to play baseball, told .a Havas contributor that there is in the French army and among the young classes that will he called in the nexi two years a sufficient amount of baseball islantant of qnalitly. The old baseball champion confessed that he was surprised to see the aptitude sho>vn by the French for the game. "Mr. Evrs considers that the baseball pracUce will improve launching of grenades. One ballplayer who had never touched a grenade threw one of these projectiles to a range of 59 metres where a very ekilled soldier had been abl? to throw one to a range of only 53 meters." FRED FULTON CHANGES HIS JOB Minneiotan Did Not Like the Threshing Game. AUTO TIRES . OP ALL SIZES VULCANIZED By the Famous Haywood System RE-TREADING A REPAIRING By EJxperienced Workmen.

Opp. Elllaon Mllla mm Just Received A SHIPMENT OF MARVEL JUNIOR VULCi|kNIZERS AND PATCHES BUOU MOTOR PAKLORS, LTD. Fred Pulton, who -was beaten by Jack Dempsey recently at Harrison, N. J., In the record time'oT 18 seconds, did not last long as a pilot of the threshing machine outfit which his manager, Mike Collins, installed him with a few weeka a'go. After the disaster in the east his manager decided that it wonld proh-i ably be a good idea to take Frederick into the farming country and give him some good fresh air and plenty of exercise. Accordingly when he secured the threshing mf^chine oufit he had Fred stacking the straw pile. It must have been pretty hard work because Mike switched him to engineer, but this is the way Mike tells it: "^Ve .have been getting along great with the threshing outfit; in fact, doing much better than I ever expected and making some of the old timers look foolish, for we had a brand new outfit and up-to-date. W^e are sure rolling off Ihe grafn for the farmers, however, and as a result of good, hard work I am in fine condition and hard as Iron. "Fulton worked hard at first and I had him on every job around the machine tor three or four days. It was evidently too much like real work and Frederick finally decided that he would go back home for a day or two. "He went all right, but failed to return, and I guess he 4s working in the flour mill at Minneapolis. At any rat� he is not here and the chances are he Kvill ni^t return. "If there are any boxers lying around loose or idle, I can give them some real workouts. Will have no iipie to bother about boxing for another two months, but after that I Intend getting busy at Minneapolis and may stage some big shows."

The contest board of the association disqualified and permanently suspended Barney Old'Held foircompetlng in an unsanctioned track meet at Springfield, 111. Earl Cooper was disqualified and temporarily suspended for a similar offence. Ai Cotey and Tom Allen also were disqualified and indefinitely Husp�ad� but they are scattered. -'^U the farmers expect to get seed back, however. BARONS Barons, Sept. IG.-Threshing is now progressing here. Crops are running up as high as 20 and 25 on summerfal-low, ivlth* a few over that mark. The average over the district on summer-fallow will be about 15. ALBION RIDGE Albion Ridge, Sept. 16.-Threshing progresses rapidly. The Kellar outfit has-threshed the.cropij for six farmers this week, crops running from 500 bushels to 1860. No one is going to live on the interest of his money this year. BOW ISLAND , Bow Island, Sept. It!.-Threshing is just about completed In this district There are no startling yields. In fact, .some of the farmers are somewhat disappointed in the yield on their good land. Nothing threshed yet has yielded more than ten bushels. RAYMOND Raymond, Sept, 1,6.-Threshers in this district report rthpt the grain is all of the number 'one grade and is turning out well over the 20 bus. mark. That of J. J. Mangin's is averaging 22 lbs. for his 1,000 acres. FOREMOST Foremost, Sept. 14.-Threshmg Is the Order of the day with mostly small gasoline rigs at work. The results ar^ not up to the expectations of some otthe farmers, while others are getting more than was expected. The average yield of wheat is about four bushels per acre of the ground 'CUt. The sample, however is good. MACLEOD Macleod, Sept. 16.-Threshing is now going strong, another ten days' fine weather will almost complete It for this year. Elevators are busy re-, celvlng the best grain they have bad since they hare been In business here. The largest percentage is No. 1, very little of any other kind. IN THE PROVINCE Edmonton, Sept. 16.-Reports received by the department of agrltjul-ture during the past week Indicate threshing general throughout the southern portion of the province, with returns quite equal to expectations. Sample good. Centi-al iportlon oi[ the province reports 76% of harvest com-pleted-^threshlng started at different points. Weather in general has been favorable during the week for harvest operations, with frost at a few points sufficient to injure late grains somewhat but little damage on the whole can result as most grains were too for advanced to suffer. Peace River district reports splendid weather and good progress in harvest operations. Crop estimate same as last week. istrict News (From Our Own ' CorrespondiEnt) Albion Ridge, Sept. IB.-Allan Lie Barre arrived home Saturday afternoon from Oalt Hoapltal, Lethbridge, convalescent. He expects soon to be able to resume light work. The price per bushel for threshing is 18 cents. The price per bushel for the farmer is the same ^s last year, while wages, twine and living are higher. The returns for years like this must be counted and an average taken. The city man is apt to view the farmer's years like one's relatives-consider only the successful ones. A phone message was received at the post office this morning for Mr. A. LeBarre, telling of his son Oscar LeBarre being wounded in Fi-ance. No details were obtainable. ,We trust, however, that the wounds are not serious. LABOR Labor has been scarce In many places but conditions somewhat Improved latter part of week. We expect now that sufficient men will arrive from points in the United States, >with-in the next two or three days, to fill all demands. BULGARIANS ON THE WESTERN FRONT NOW Amsterdam, Sept. 17.-Bulgarian rogimenta have arrived at Mauberge to-co-operate with the German troops on the western front, according to the Echo Beige. BOSTON GOLFER IS REAL "BUG" BOW ISLAND (From the Review.) C. H. Bell has resigned as J.P. The town council may acqujl^e the old school building for an isolation hospital. ' ' �< The U.F.A. here has contracted fpr 500 tons of hay at-fl5.10 a ton, laid down in Bow Island. The vote taken on afonday as to whether *the school districts compres-ing Bow Island and Courtland Hill should adopt consolidation was not a large one, and would Incline one to Imagine that the Interest of the ratepayers *as not very keen. The vote taken in the I.O.O.F. hall in town resulted In 52 votes for and four against consolidation. Courtland Hill recorded an even break of 6-6, but the casting vote of the chairman broke the deadlock and converted the vote into a negative. We understand, however, that the aggregate vote counts, and if this is so then the consolidation. of I this district only awaits the pleasure of the minister to become an accomplished fact. There is undoubtedly much opposition to the consolidation of this school district, both in town and in the district of Courtland Hill, but the vote recorded would not indicate this. Whether the committee having the matter in hand will feel justified |n pressing for consolidation under the circumstances is largely a matter for themselves to decide. John Slaby, previously a farmer ot Qfassy Lake and now 'a member of -iffls Majesty's forces, was charged on Saturday, August 31st, ' before Police Magistrate Brown with occasioning bodily harm to-John H. Flynn on August 19fh. The prosecution was represented by Mr. McArthur, of Conyr beare. Church & McArthur, barristers, ot Leth'bridge, while the defence was ably put forward by, Francis O. Mc-Kenna, barrister, of ^Bow Island. About six witnesses Were' examined for the prosecution and four for the defence; Some idea of the amount of evidence taken may be gathered from the fact that the case laited about four hours and there were 50 pages of shorthand. After summing up the evidence, the police magistrate gave judgment against the plaintiff and dismissed the complaint, there being no evidence to substantiate a charge of such a serious nature as that introduced. Knocks Worsted Balis Around Lot to Keep in Trim. New York.-There's a story, told of a golf I'iend down the Boston dlia-trlct by the name of Charles H. Simons. He is the general New England, manager for Swift & Company, and, naturally, war conSitiona prevailing In the beet line, he doesn't find much time to actually play. Bat he loves It just the same, and de-r-.ided to keep his hand In. He doesn't tear losing his present grip and.distance and direction, hut he tioati fear losing the knack of "keeping his aye o.n the ball." Therefore he had his wife make him a lot of little knitted worsted balls of the proper size, and if one goes out to his home any evening after dinner Simons will be found, knocking the.'ie little worsted golf balls around bis lawn; just to keep his eye trained for the real thing later on.
