hot tip on Critic, which opened at 20 to

smaller Drlce. Critic tried hard enough,
but. Ed G. had too much speed.

Sanderson of Ogden quit a president of
the league and "Dad'1 Glmlin refused to
bring his team to Salt Lake to play any
more ball,, partly because he doesn't want

tonight," said Miller Huggtns of the St.
LouIr Cardinals, waving away tho wcll

sure that, all your blamed birds would be
killed. Instead of only half of them, and
that there would be a painful disease
attack all tho rest of the. roosters In the
world. I'd go. but as it is nothing doing.
Why am I so sore at fighting roost
ers? For good reasons. A rooster ruined
inc financially some time ago, and I shall
never overcome my hatred for the whole
family of chickens. I have eaten as mam
as I could to prove my enmity, and I
hope to eat a great many more before
