Sickinger (Slougfcfoot , .Mike), of. Sweet Grass, came to an abrupt end after two minutes' fighting in the third round when "Sloughfoot" claimed a foul, and refused to continue the battle. Dr. Merritt was called into the ring. but. on examination, declared there was no visible evidence that he had been struck low, so the fight was awarded to the Alberta man by Referee Frank Hart. But while the fray lasted it was a good one and both tore in from the. tap of the gong. Sickinger drew first blood from Foley in the first round, landing several blows to the face and soon had his opponent's nose and mouth bleeding. 5 While this was taking place, Jud was getting his work in on the body, landing a number 'of stiff punches which took Mike's wind down several pounds. As this was Sfckinger's first .bout, he did remarkably well against a irian of many years' experience, and with a little more training to get his wind in better shape it is though! that he will give Foley a hard battle, and besides the fans would like to see a return match between the two lads: 1/ The preliminary bout between Young Leffingwell and Jimmie Rocke brought a great deal of applause when the referee called it a the end of five rounds. Those who have seen Young Leffingwell in action at other limes, claim he baa improved considerably in the fighting Though the seniors have called baseball off for the season the intermediates who have been playing regularly all summer have decided to wind the schedule up in a blaze-of glory and on Wednesday afternoon of this week they will play two games with the Calgary Intermediates for the championship of Southern Alberta. The games will be in the nature of a doubleheader starting at 2.30, and a big half-holiday crowd Is expected to be on hand for the performance. Prendergast, the Taber southpaw will be on the slab for one game, and Wade Ri�V path will serve the offerings in the other. On Saturday the Taber Intermediates invaded the city and played the local intermediates, winning by 5'2 In a good game. Prendergast pitched for the .visitors and it was his good slab work that was responsible for the visitor*' win. Old Country Football Scores Pemberton. first-; Adomai, 121.

Sept. 21.- Boxing will be a part, and parcel of the curriculum of the San Francisco high schools if President George E. Gallagher of the board of education and Superintendent Roncovieri have their way. A resolution is ready for the board to have the physical instructors teach boxing. And there's not likely to be any opposition. "Put me down as in favor." said Superintendent Roncovieri. "I feel that boxing ought to be taught in every high school, and perhaps we can start lower down. I hope they put that through in a hurry.'' High school teachers already interviewed have expressed themselves in favdr of the move, and it is likely steps will be taken at once. > > ? ? > ; > > ? > > > > led yesterday to get in training fight the Hun for Uncle Sam. to URGES CARE IN SKINNING ANIMALS FOR THEIR HIDES Chicago-To relieve the heavy demand /or leather, the department of agriculture is urging that slaughtered and dead animals on the farm be skinned with the greatest care, so hides will not be cut and scored in such a way  as to make them useless.

(Special to the Herald) Cardston, Sept. 20.-Cardston residents missed a rare treat Wednesday evening when the Raley people came out in force for the organization meeting of the K. of C. for the "Canadian Army Huts" fund. The hand bills were only put out the day before anjt few people here are at all acquainted with the organization or know of its work for the soldier boys over there. Mr. H. J. Flock of Raley is the only member of the organization in these parts. The meeting 1 was held in the court house, .with Martin: Woolf, M.P. P. in the chair, and Mr. H. J. Flock also tipon the rostrum. The preliminary musical program was one of the best listened to in Cardston for many a long year. The opening number was a piano solo by Mr. H. S. Flock of California, who captivated his audience with "The Turkish March" of Beethoven. Mr. Birkett, who is a returned soldier now teaching at Raley, gave with good effect a vocal solo "The Admiral's Broom." Another vocal solo was very pleasingly given by Mr, Harry Wicksom, 'Until." Mr. Woolf expressed his sympathy with the movement and regretted the absence of many leading citizens due to other appointments, and the fact that most of us were ignorant as to this organization, its objects and past good record. He introduced the organizer, Mr. McLeiian of Lethbridge, who informed those present of the-official recognition of this Canadian Army Huts fund by the military and civil-authorities, of their good work for the past three years, and their objecj fives in the present drive in Canada- $500,000 for this country and ?30,000 j for Alberta. There was no overlap-i ping of this organization, of the Y.M. I C.A. or the Salvation Army, j Mr. H. S. Flock then gave another i piano, solo, "Military Polonaise," by \ F. Scherman, which brought forth prolonged applause. "Glorious Devon," a vocal solo/ was well rendered by Mr. Birkett. By invitation of the chairman, Mr. Quinn of Lethbridge spoke briefly of the ready response elsewhere to the needs of this organization and explained that the K. of C. were really only acting as the collecting" agency, turning over every cent received with no remuneration to any officer for his services in this cause. Mr. L. H. Jelliff made the speech of the evening. He first alluded to the musical performers being all from Raley and the pleasure he believed they had given the audience. He referred to Mr. Birkett who had returned physically put out of the fight by his wounds but full of patriotic fire as is evidenced in his songs-he knew the aid given by. the army huts to the boys ori the firing line. Our financial aid was as nothing compared with the doings of these soldiers who had risked all for freedom, King and country. He alluded to the fact that in this greatest world war all lines of creeds were obliterated and as long as our funds went to succor thosje fighting it made no difference who expended them. We knew ail these organizations did their best for the boys. Mr. Wicksem sang "A May Morning" with artistic fervor, and Mr. H. J. Flock explained the shortness of | the time for advertising the Meeting, | congratulated those who had render-program, proposing a vote of thanks to all who participated. Carried unanimously. Upon Mr. McLel-lan's suggestion that Mr. Woolf, M.P. P. took charge of the campaign here, the chairman explained that this district was under promise to" raise ten thousand^dollars for the Red Cross by lug "God Save the King." Personals. Cardston has added two new citizens to its list of professional men this week. Dr. Macdonald. recently of Raymond and previously of Blairmore, will practice in Card3ton and district, and has located his office and rooms in the Central block of H. D. Folsom. He will be joined. by his fjtnily soon, his arrival having been delayed by the illness of his father-in-law in Saskatoon, and his wife is still at the last named point. Another medical man who has seen two years of service overseas has arrived this week in the person of Dr. \V. S. Pickup who Is taking over the Cardston Pharmacy. He will be assisted by his sister, Miss Pickup, who had spent some time in Cardston previously and is welcomed by. many friends here. Mr. C. W. Pickup is removing to Edmonton to complete his studies.- Dr. Pickup before going overseas was located at Fort William. We are pleased to welcome such able citizens and we feel sure they will be good aids in the upbuilding of our community life. While gaining membeis in the medical profession we are losing in the legal. Mr. W. S. Johnston, barrister, has sold out his business to Mr. Seth H. Nelson who was admitted to the bar this last spring. and who was with Mr. Johnston for several years as a student at law. Mr. Nelson's office has been removed to the old stand of Mr. Johnston who is leaving Cardston permanently. 'After thirteen years of most careful hospital work during which time she has had only one previous holiday, Mrs. Van Haarlem of Lethbridge, has been visiting Cardston, the guest of Br. and Mrs. V. V. Christie. Her great fidelity to her profession would not permit her to remain Jong but j she expressed her enjoyment of the ' verdant landscape, the glorious mountains so near, and Cardston with its court house, tabernacle, school and temple, not to mention her kindly and -cultured host aricT hostess. Many citizens of Cardston district would be glad to welcome Mrs. Van Haarlem to their homes should she find it possible to visit us again. Miss Benham is also a guest of Dr. and Mrs. Christie, and is likewise enjoying Cardston and vicinity and is spending a longer time here than Mrs. Van Haarlam, who claims her as one of the greatly valued members of her hospital staff.- Mr. and Mrs. M. A. Coombs, Mrs. Atttena Williams and daughter Loila, and Mrs.- J- Hunt went by motor to Calgary on Friday to visit the young people attending the Provincial Normal school. Mr. and Mrs. CoombB have a son and daughter, Mrs. Williams a son and Mrs. Hunt a daughter in attendance. They purpose returning via High River and Frankburg where Mr. Coombs' oldest son and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Coombs, are teach- the good weather continues Mr. and Mrs. ilomer. Woolf, Mr. and Mrs. N. W. Tanner nnd Mrs. Lydla J. Brown expect to visit Calgary, as they also have candidates at the Normal school. Mrs. Zena C. Brown, wife, of Major IT. B. Brown, is visiting friends at Ma-grathfor a few days this week. Her anxiety was. greatly relieved -recently when advices came that the hoys were all safely over and had been duly entrained for their respective destinations. Major H. B. Brown of Cardston left in charge of one of the largest drafts going over from Alberta-some fifteen hundred men. They were quarantined for n time at Camp Petawawa with mumps and measles, and finally got as far as Halifax, took- ship (and then were delayed for a week or two because of the subs playing h�Toc off, the coast. Major Brown's first letter^ failed to reach here, and as no word ' came until his -second letter arrived, all his people were very anxious, It-is likely that the first letter went down with the ship, as Meut. B, H. May has been advised this week that his trunk containing his military uniforms, souvenirs gathered, fa two years in France and many personal belongings had gone down to the bottom of the blue. This means a loss of |2S0, besides many moraentos that can never he replaced. .We can all be thankful that the boys are safely over, as very many of the 20 and 22 classes from this district went with this draft. ' ! Fuel Situation. The fuel situation is not too had, at this point. The U.F.A. have shipped in cars of coal all summer for the farmers and the local dealers have also urged people to stock up. During the summer over a thousand tons have been placed by Mr. C. S. Mussel! of. the Alberta Pacific Elevator for his ' company and the^e are 300 tons, on hand. Dowdle & Sons report quite an amount sold this suhrmerV as do Brown & Bates, but these dealers can not get all the Gait coal they' could handle, as only about four, cars a. month arrived lately.. The Ellison Milling Company, operating the Cardston Milling Co.'s plant, report 25 to 50 per cent, more coal sold this summer than ordinarily, so that people are heeding the warning and have laid up quite a supply o� fuel.for the winter needs.( Red Cross Party. The K. of C. tit rough Mr. H; J. Flock and Mr. L. H. Jelliff of Raley arc coming out to aid the Red Cross of Cardston on Friday, the 27th, when a dancing party will be given in the school gymnasium; and a fine program of music as well.
