A MATTER OF JUDGMENT SERVICE STATION ? * .>.;..:.��>: &>><* � One would suppose that Jim Vaughn would have been disgusted with the Cubs after the Saturday game of the world's series. He had pitched the first game and lost, 1 to 0, and he had pitched the third game and lost, 2 to 1. His mates had given him only one run in the two games, which should have been sufficient grounds for disgust. Consequently it was a bit surprising when Big Jim spoke..the following words after being reminded^ of the weak offense of his mates: "It was my fault. Tliey gave me one run, and that one should have been enough to win for us. "Do you remember that one that Mclnnis hit in that bad inning?" he asked after a pause.' "Well, that was supposed to be a bean ball. You see, it was a bad enough mistake to let that curve get away and hit White-man in the ribs, before Mclnnis came to bat. But that probably wouldn't have beaten me. I. got the first two past Mclnnis for strikes and had all the best of it. but wanted to drive them back from the plate, so intended to shoot the next one close to his bean. My control was bad, and I got it almost over the plate, just where he likes 'em, and he hit to left field for a single. "Schang's hit followed, but it might not have done any damage if I had got Mctnnfs out of the way-., f think that one pitched ball beat me."" BIG CAVE-IN AT eiBEAU MINE Unused Mine at Frank-Fuel Administrator For Pass Is Named HARRY HOOPER OF BOSTON LATEST^ ONE TO QUIT BALLDOM Harry Hooper has played his last game as a major leaguer, he says. He announced his retirement in Boston a day or two ago as' he was about to start for his home in California. "I've been with the Red Sox for ten years," he said. "I've never played with any other professional club under the national agreement. I am getting old for big league ball, for you know ten years is a long time for a player to be steadily in big league harness. Then when the game is resumed, it may be that conditions will be such that I cannot afford to come across the continent. I am of the opinion that salaries, will be low, and by that time my business at home may have developed to such an extent that it will demand my entire attention." Hooper has always been a great favorite with Boston fans and they view his retirement with regret. LEONARD MUST JOIN U.S. ARMY Hubert (Dutch) Leonard, formerly pitcher for the Red Sox, who deserted the team early in the season to go to work in a ship yard, will not escape military service. He has been placed in claBS one by his draft board and notified that he must report for military training, In spite of the fact that he is married. Had Leonard remained with the Red Sox he would have helped them win the pennant and could have shared in the world's series purse, but he preferred to quit and build ships. Now he goes into the army just the same.

"THE HOUSE OF SERVICE" STAY IN EXECUTION Winnipeg, Sept. 26.-A hangman's delay has given Frank Sullivan and Philip Johnson, condemned to death for the murder of Constable Snowdon on April 5, five more days to live. The delay does not mean that there is any chance of reprieve, Judge Metcalfe, emphasized, Baying that little short of a miracle could save the lives of the men now. The fact that Arthur Eljis, the hangman, is unable to leave Quebec until Monday caused the stay.

Mark has installed an electric playing piano in his place of business. A cave-in of about 100 feet in diameter happened at the Gibeau mine at Frank yesterday. .It is about 300 feet from the shaft. The cave-in probably goes down to a slope that was run from the bottom of the shaft. The water in the mine is within 30 feet of the surface. In the absence of Rev. W. T. Young, Rev.

ARONS DISTRICT Irishman Shows Farmers How It's Done-Summerfallow Crops Good GERMANY'S LAST WORD Arthur Train, the novelist, put down a German newspaper at the Century Club, in New York, with an impatient grunt. "It says here," he explained,, "that it is Germany who will speak the last word in this war." Then the novelist laughed angrily and added: "Yes, Germany will speak the last word in the war, and that last word will be 'Kamsw*^1.'" - Washington Star. (From Our Own Corrosoond^nt) Barons, Sept. 26.-Good crop reports continue to come in. Mr. E. J. Irvine, who farms four sections in Black Spring Ridge, Is getting about twenty-five bushels or wheat to the acre. In the White Lake district, south-west of town, twenty-five and thirty bushel cropH are common, with eighteen bushels the lowest summer-fallow crop so far reported. The local campaign on behalf of the K. of C. for fundH for work among the soldiers was carried out under the supervision of Mr. E. J. Irvine, a member of the Order, and proved eminently successful. The town and district were canvassed in one day (Friday) and netted quite a respectable sum. Rev. Bishop, of Edmonton, secretary of the Children's Welfare League, preached here on Sunday and made a very strong appeal for more careful study of the children's cjaims on the community. Mr. Bishop,also delivered an address on the Childs''Welfare movoment, on Monday evening. An Irishman in the employment of McLean Bros., southwest of barons, this spring told his employers that he would show them how to grow potatoes and a- few samples in Popham & May's office window testify to his ability to make good, even In spite of the dry season. The potatoes weigh from lYs to 2% lbs. each and are solid throughout. Mr. McLean states that he gets about Ave of these monsters from each hill and that there do not seem to be any small potatoes in the patch. On Friday evening at eight o'cloflff, in the big hall, Boy Scouts and Camp Fire Girls from Lethbridge will give demonstrations of their skill In first aid, etc. It is tho intention to start branches of both organizations in Barons and it Is hoped that all parents who can will attend to see the benefits that their boys and girls may derive by joining.
