MAGRATH PITCHER DELIVERED GOODS Cardston Nine Defeated 9 to 5 at Garden City Magrath, Sept. principal sporting event of the day at the fair was, ol course, the baseball be- tween MagTath ami Cardston. The game was interesting, and at times 'exciting. The score was 5-9 in favor df the Garden Citj-, and useless to say that the outcome was popular.

Competitor in French' Con- test for ?5000 Prlzs SOME GOOD FOOTBALL IN SIGHT Probable Line-Up of the Local Team in Bennet Shield Games Football fans in the city have Uielr minds on the game in Calgary theso days, where the Hillhurst and Cale- donian teams are running flunk to flank for the championship of Cal- gary. Those two teams, probably the best In the whole Dominion, came through the league with even points, and have tried three times, .before crowds of over to break the tie. In the last two games uo goals have been scored, half-an-hour overtime be- ing played m the game last Saturday. Winners Play Lethbrldge Hsre The reason that so much interest is being taken in these games, is In the fact that the winners are schedul- ed to play Lethbrldge here.on Satur- day nest in the Bennett Shield com- petition, representing: the champion- ship of Alberta, and the Overseas are naturally anxious to know which team they will have to meet. The City League has in their charge, and are in communica- tion with Taylor, secretary of the Shield competition, endeavoring to have the Calgary game decided before that date. But Calgary is looking for another big gate, and will probably try to have, their fixture with Letli- bridge postponed. While the team to represent the city ia not definitely settled, it is un- derstock that the line-up will be as follows: Simmer; Patterson and Home; Cauldwcli. Whybe and Wllletts; Bren- nan, Thompson, Parker, Tennaut and l London, Sept. an example! of King George's active interest in the "sport" of pigeon flying, concern- lug which a descriptive dispatch has been cabled comes the announcement that His Majes-ry has entered twelve pigeons for the first Grant National pigeon race from Rennes, France.

Boston has the pennant cinched and interest now centres in the struggle for second place, which the Nationals are holding but which is contested by the Athletics, world's champions. Boston's lead is so great now that there is no chance-for that team be- ing overtaken. It will probably the honor by a much larger margin than it now holds. Boston has 'won because it has the better team. It has speed and hitting power and, incidentally, a well-bal anced, hard-working pitching staff. I was this which the Athletics lacked and to which their failure to repeat their performance of .the past two years must he attributed. Mack has the stronger hitting team, perhaps, but when the pitching is weak, as it has been this year, even a clouting team cannot land on top. Griffith's team stands a splendid chance to finish second. If the team will continue to hustle it. should beat out the Athletics. Had Griffith been blessed with more batting strength he would have been nearer to Boston now, if, in fact, he was not leading the procession. There might be'a differ- ent story to tell of this race it Grif- fith had started the season with Gan- dil on first. The Nationals showed little or nothing before he joined them From that day out the winning be- gan. This season was siy weeks old when he came into the fold. Those six weeks the worst the Na- tionals experienced, so that it is easily figured that many more games would hava been won had he a mem- ber of the team right at the outset of iho campaign.

Chorus Girls Can't Marry THEATRICAL MANAGERS PROHIBITIVE CLAUSE AGREEMENTS PLACE IN McKELVIE McGUIREf Northwestern Seatlle S, Portland 1. Spokane 4, Tacoma 3. Vancouver 2, Victoria 0. Puzzled "1 am said the campaign committee's "to accept con- tributions from any man who ia con- nected with a large and profitable corporate enterprise." "That is as1 It should replied the idealist. "Yea. But don't see how we can get anywhere ir we must depend for funds on people who .haven't any money.-" London, Sept. peerage and stage department of the matrimonial market has received a severe set- back by the edict just issued by Geo. Edwards, who controls most of Eng- land's chorus girls, that they must not marry. This order is the result of the inroads made by Hymen into the ranks of the chorus girls at Ed- wardes, three musical comedy houses the Gaiety, Daly's and the Adelphl theatres. In future, all contracts 'between the manager and the singers will contain a clause providing that no girl shal released from engagements during rehearsal or the run of the piece on the score of matrimony. Edwards' chief lieutenant, Arthur Marlone, says that the marriage of chorus girls is becoming a serious question for musical comedy promot- ers. .No less than IS girls left the Adelphi during the run of "The Quak- er Girl" to marry. "It is not easy to fill the says Marlone, "and the time and money spent in rehear- sing and training girls is wasted-when they suddenly decide to marry sonic titled admirer." Hence the new clause in all agreements, penalizing matrimony. American Boston Stopped by Naps Cleveland, Sept. took two games from Boston today, there by preventing the leaders from clinch ing the pennant. Both games were close, Cleveland winning each tim< in their final turn at bat. The firs' game, a pitchers' battle between-Col lins and Gregg, went eleven innings finally being lost by Boston on sue cessive hits by Turner, Jackson am Lajoie. Carisch featured this game by making three singles, a double and a triple in five times at bat. In the second game, after Bostoi had taken the lead in the fourth inn ing, Cleveland won the-, game 01 pass to Turner, outs by Jackson Lajoie, and hits by Hendrix and Gran 63'. The game was called afteir the fifth on account of darkness. Thi scores were 4 to 3 and 3 to 2. Games Postponed All other games in the America: League were prevented on account o rain.
