What would they think if they were called upon to play sis games in one day? The records of professional bail show but one instance in which six games were played in a day. This was 29 years ago, when Portland, Jle., and Manchester, N.H., were the contesting clubs. Two of the pastimes were pulled off in the morning and four in the afternoon, Manchester winning all six of them. The Pine Tree lads grew weary of their drubbing and quit when two innings of the last'game had been played, the umpire awarding the victory to Manchester. The only quadruple-header in a regular league had to be dug up from the records and took place in September 22 years ago, when St. Joseph -ncd Sioux City, both of the Western League, played three five-inning games and one seven-inning contest. The league authorities permitted only one game to stand in the record of championship contests. . There have been a number of triple-headers in baseball history. In September, 1896, Baltimore took three games from Louisville in one day, both cities then being in the NationaJ League. In September, 1S90, Brooklyn defeated the Pirates three times in 24 hours. In 1890 Saginaw took three nine-inning games from Montreal, and in tha? same year Minneapolis played three games in a day, defeating Lincoln in the morning and St. Paul twice in the afternoon. A little later Omaha bested St. Paul thrice in one day. Syracuse figured in three such baseball sprees, winning three from Toronto in September, 1896, losing a trio to Rochester on September 4, 1889, and winning three from Scran-ton on September 3, 1904. About the last of these bargain day offerings was staged at Tacoma in 1908, when the home club pnt the skids under Spokane three times in a row. Fight With Kid Lewis Was Not as Fast as People Had Expected Rain Damages Hay Crop-New School Opened in the Readymade District No ball game this afternoon. That was the word passed around this morning when Jupiter Pluv. was still lowering.- So the Calgary Intermediates will not play until Saturday, and then the two games will be staged. With fine weather then there should be a big crowd out. The boys need a big crowd too, for they have to pay the expenses of the Calgary team, amounting to some $85. So don't forget them on Saturday afternoon. Be on hand. GOLFERS CAN CORRECT THEIR Ol FAILINGS Few Link Mannerisms That Should Be Studied By-the Golfer Newark, N.J., Sept. 23- Benny Leonard, lightweight champion, had a shade the better of Ted ("Kid".)

Her keel was laid on May 15 last. The golfer has not much timo to study psychology as it is presented him in the stream of life on the "busy links. It is one of the best features of the game that it concentrates the whole attention for the time being. Fortunately one cannot mentally carry his business worries or cares with him on the round, thus when playing the faculties of one's mind get a chance of recuperation, try otherwise as one may. But while all this is so, observant players cannot help noting the doings of-brother golfers."''The mannerisms on the links are worth some study, even it for nothing' else than the correction of a player's own failings. The game, almost unconsciously, brings out what is natural, time and again penetrating what may have been acquired in the world's veneer. A prominent mannerism of the golfer is that of eternal grumbling. Everybody who has played at all has had the sad experience of going around with the chronic grumbler. From the tee he never hits a drive that pleases, though he may be consistently outdistancing his opponent. Then he seldom gets a good lie round vided. The men weighed in at three o'clock this afternoon. Lewis did not turn the scale at 141, the maximum weight on which an agreement had been reached, and Leonard weighed lSb\i pounds. Leonard did not appear to be as fast as in previous battles, but he was speedier than Lewis. Both men were cautious, which made the contest less interesting than was expected. In the first round Lewis landed a terrific straight right to Leonard's jaw, which made him assume the defensive throughout the round, in which Lewis had all the better of the fighting. Lewis bad a bruise under his right eye when he came out for the second round, and Leonard lost no time in trying to increi$$ the, ;&&age. Fast Teft. jabs achieved this result. In addition, Leonard "sent a hard left to the jaw, which Lewis countered with a hard right, high on the head. This was Leonard's round. The third round was pretty even, but in the fourth Leonard had a shade the better of his opponent. Lewis sent right ;>nd lclt to face hard in the fifth, whila Benny was jabbing constantly. Lewis finished up the round with a hard left to the body and right to the head. This was Lewis' round. Both were cautious in the sixth, with Leonard gaining as he had the advantage by offensive work. The seventh was Leonard's round, during which he dodged some havd blows, making Lewis' efforts" appear wild. Leonard opened a cut under Lewis' left eye, drawing blood. The eighth round opened with Lewis missing two rights. Benny hooked left to the jaw and following with three tantalizing left jabs, hooked a left to the face and ducked two hard swings. At, close quarters, Benny twice had the better of the fighting and dodged safely when Lewis rushed. Leonard tried to measure his man for a knock- through the green. The unreasonableness of it all to his opponent is that out, but missed by inches only when he takes his brassle to all these' bad he tried a swing for the jaw. lies.

"THE HOUSE OF SERVICE" themselves shunned in the making of matches. And no wonder! Do they ever think of the effect their everlasting grumbling is bound to have on the nerves of a companion? Their perpetual "hard luck" grates on his ear and becomes nauseus, so that he blesses his fortune when the last hole is reached. And the fatuity of it all is, the grumbling is generally innocent of any desire to be a spoil-sport. He has simply allowed the .habit to grow upon him, forgetting that optimism is the best stimulant he can have, either at the nineteenth or any other hole. Serenity of Temper. It is far better to follow up the missed drive with a determination to get a good second shot than to give way to anathema; a cupped lie becomes no easier by bemoaning fato, nor is a dissipation of profanity a good preliminary to making the best of fortune's chances when they have gone against one. And if you lo3t your temper through the green, what are your chances of holing out? The putting green, beyond any other department of the game, requires serenity of temper, otherwise the yard putts become ever so much trickier than usual. Another common mannerism is the propensity to exaggerate style. The cultivation of this is a duty imposed upon all who honestly desire to learn the game. Everyone likes to be as graceful as possible, and what is known as "style" is the handmaiden of gracefulness, as well as being one of the paths by which improvement is attained. What the player should really aim at is to make his awing aB naturally as possible, and there is no use in trying to be fantastic in addressing the ball. The same applies on the putting green: affectation and crankiness are never helpmates to good #Bfcti)>s. tag day results '"mrn our Ot�n ^orresDond^nt) Nobleford, Sept. 24.-Saturday was tug day here for the Child Welfare week and the members of the Women's Institute had the arrangements in hand. So well did they do the tagging that at the close of the day's work the total collected amounted to ?47.00, which will be forwarded to headquarters. Mrs. S. W. McNiel and her two children left on Saturday night for the east where they will spend the next twelve months. On Saturday evening a few of the young people gathered at the Prairie Farm to say farewell to John Speck who is leaving shortly for the States to join up. A very enjoyable time was spent and during the evening a wrist watch was presented to him together with the best wishes of his friends, who all hoped to see him back again soon.

Ottawa, Sept. 24.-Dealing with British aerial operations, a cablegram has been received, compiled by the minister of information under the authority of the war cabinet, by the director of public information. After five days of almost perpetual storm and rain the week's air war culminated in a remarkable burst of fighting on the British western front and over Germany itself. Notwithstanding unfavorable weather con- ditions from Tuesday to Saturday night British airmen seijied every opportunity to press home the advantages gained in recent operations. In the intervals that were fine, they took many photographs and dropped more than 20 tons of bombs on the enemy organizations behind their lines. On Sept. 15, improved weather produced very marked aerial developments and large numbers of enemy machines wore encountered on the Gorman side of the line. In two days* fighting, 32 British machines were reported missing but 72 Oerman machines wero destroyed, 27 were downed and one kite balloon downed on fire, making a total bag of 100 enemy aircraft in 48 hours. While these hep.vy battles wero proceeding. British bombing squadrons were very active, dropping more than 70 tons of bombs on military objectives behind the battleline. Raids on Rhine Region Probably there never haB been a more formidable persistent air np-aault than that the Rhine Buffered from British airmen during the past week. Between Sept. 13 and 16, 34 separate raids were made. Twelve went for the vital railway junction triangle at Metz-Soblons, four against , Courcelles junction, seven against railways at Arnivalle, Elirnnge, Saar-brucken, Kaizerslauterh, Mainz, while heavy attacks were also made on the enemy airdromes at Buhl, Boulay, Freslaty and Pagenau. Such repeated attacks In the sam* place wero necessary because of the perpetually renewed German repairs. In addition, destructive raids were alHo made on the chemical and airplane factories at Mannheim, the Daimler works at Stuttgart and dock sidings at Karlsruhe. Increased Air-Power" Shown Fifty-nine tons of bpmbB were dropped during five days wh'lch. equals more than halt the total weight of bombs dropped duriug the whole preceding month.

Besides maintaining all the usual patrols, they have attacked vigorously the naval military works atvBruges. Ostend, Stahiles, Zevecote, etc. Over ono of these places on Sept. 18, no fewer than 11 enemy machines were destroyed, seven more driven down, with only two British machines failing to return.
