Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 22, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1914 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE THREE REDSKIN FOREMOST PITCHER AMERICAN LEAGUE f Meteoric -Rise of Boston in National League-Making Baseball History Ten years from now, when the Hgh spots in baseball history como It.r discussion', 1914 will reeoivo more than its share cJ attention. When- ever a parallel is wanted .for some lucky stretch by a ball team of the futuro, the admonition will bo the Boston Braves oi 1914." A study of the archives of the game fails to reveal another case whore a team was last after the Fourth of July and managed to sprint until H led the league. This goes for any major league that ever existed, including the ancient Union association as well as the National and American leagues of today. It took the Braves exactly 'ill days! after July 4, when they started their streak, to get. Uieir iirst breath of first place atmosphere. On the morn- ing of July 5 they were last in the league, and at dawn on September 3 they were in first place. Whether the Braves eventually win the National league flag or not, those 60 days will go down in the hook as a monument to 3 Stallingi: and his plucky band of Back Bay patriots.

But the Red Sox have to be dispos- ed of yet in the American league, and It appears now as if tltc Uennelt Shield game played hero, recently be- tween the .Medicine Hat Callies and the Let-hliridgc Callies in which the local team proved the winners, has been played to no purpose. Mr. Ben- nett, the donor of the shield, who resides at Edmonton, Las seen fit to haul down the shield from com- petition, and without this recogniL- cd emblem of the provincial football championship to play for, the series of games, the clubs concerned concede, are thereby nullified. The donor of the shield decided that 'the trophy bearing iris name should no longer he put up for competition because of an attack made upon 'Mm by the Calgary Albcrtan recently in connection with the trophy. Tbo at- was made by 5Ir. Mathescui, who conducts the football comment col- umn on the Algerian's sport page. He is treasurer of the Calgary Cat- lies' team, and it was in connection j with h s team that he issued his plain statements about the Bennett Shield and its dcnor. He accused Mr. Ben- nett of prejudice. It is the usual thing for the donor of a shield to accompany the trophy with medals each year, but this, Mr. Bennett IMS not done because the emblem of the provincial has always been captured by Calgariaus to Matheson in the Alber- not at any time by an Ed- monton team in the-nine years of its existence. To this Mr. Bennett took exception and straightway let it be known that no deid of gift had been made out when the shield was do- t is not wise to put too much money j nated to the Provincial Football as- on the Athletics, for the city of Bos- ton may yet sport two champions.

Florence Discovers the Countess in Jim's Arms. 4TWWW CONTINUED PROM FRONT PAGE while the French ami British troops are pursuing their favorite movement of working around the German flanks. Day by day the allied line, though stationary in the centre, seems, ac- cording to official statements, to gain a livtle ground on both wings. 1! tine report that General Von Kluck has moved his headquarters back to Mons, be true, it will be of the greatest significance as showing his recogni- tion of danger which might threaten him Srora an army marching from the west. London, Sept. dearth of official news this morning from the battle front in the western arena oi the war has raised usual crop oi rumors. These attract interest, and in the minds of some people, are im- portant from the fact that, original- ins simultaneously at widely distant points thny seem more or less to eqn- firm each other. The unsubstantiated report from Antwerp to the effect that General Kluck, the commander of the German right wing, has removed his headquarters back to Mons, completes these rumors. The latest official communication from Paris, even more laconic than usual, declares the allies are mating progress between PJieims and the Ar- gounc, although the fighting during the day time yesterday was less vio- lent. A wounded British officer, who has returned to Paris from the front, has supplemented the official news with lhe declaration that the allies on' their left have advanced seven miles. BERLIN MAKES NUMBER. OF CLAIMS Berlin, however, reports that Ger- man counter attacks about Reims have resulted in their capture oi the 'trong hill positions at Craonne, 18 mites north-west of Reims, and the occupation of the village of Bethany, 3 miles north of the French city. Ber- lin claims also a successful attack on the line of forts south of Verdun, defended by eight French army corps and as a result the troops having crossed the east border in the direc- tion of Lorraine. Berlin reports fur- ther the defeat of a sortie from the northeast of Verdun, hut declares ithere has been no important engage- ment elsewhere on the western bat- tle front. MAY EAZI3 REIMS TO THE GROUND The devoted city of Reims may, be razed to the ground, it is felt in London, not because in itself it has any strategic value, but because it happens -to he in the way of opera- tions directed against the plateau above the city where the allies un- doubtedly .will endeavor to disprove as did-Napoleon, the theory of Bluch- er, that these heights .are impreg- nable even if defended by only men. The walls and towel'of Reims ca- Ithodral, according to reports, are still standing, hut it is not believed ,they are strong enough to .endure much more bomhardment. Nowhere else along the battle line is any great effort being made to carrv a frontal attack, and.unless one side or the other executes an out- flanking movement, Reims may wit- ness the most decisive battle of the war. Belgian sorties continue from the shelter-.of the Belgians nor the Germans have brought about anj change in i their relitlvc positions, in the dis trict. VT WILL SHOCK WORLD London, Sept. M..

AS PARIS SEES THE SITUATION Paris, Sept. 22. The battle of Charleroi lasted three days and the battle ot Mons covered six days, though the retirement of the Ger- mans commenced an the third day, today is the seventh day of the bat- tle of the Aisne, the most violent .of the three, but though the limit of human endurance seems to have reached as the intensity of the strug gle has diminished i in front of Reims. At Craonne, after a brie! lull, the nehling has become fierce again, and the losses of the Germans were in- creased. Here alone, on the whole line, hand to hand fighting occurred, yesterday. Everywhere else the in- vaders left the attack to "Brurn- as the iuimCnse mottttrs which did such damage to the cathedral of Reims are known. It may well be. asked if the result of the lavish ex- penditure upon those immense pro- jectiles, is a good investment as the serious damage to the Reims cathe- dral has had only, the result of to- creasing the determination of the French to will. The significance of yesterday's official communications to he seen on consulting the maps, is that the allies hare advanced at points where the danger to the in- vaders is greatest.
