The action cf the liangor management cane as a decldul surprise to the league at Hist, for It was well knowu that Hun gor was ahead of the game Unanolally and trouble Is not generally expeoted from a Ira n that It maklDg money.Uow ever, this Instance tally Illustrates the true sporting vein if the "Down Lust ers 1 concerning which everybody who stilts liartur hears so much.

All the manager* were notified that an important league meeting was to be held at Hath on Saturday night and every manager was present with the exc3ptlon of Manager Maguire of Haugor, who tele phoned Sear At ary W«tb>r to aot for him and all be asked of the league was to have Higgins assigned to his club. This request was granted and not the slightest rumor cf dissatisfaction was hoard Iron: Haagor until after the game on Monday night with Portland when the news was spread broadcast by the prass agent of the Hang or club that the management would have nothing farther to do with polo The management must have intended to quit early in tha day and yet the Port land team was allowed to go to Horn:or at an expense of 8’5 that evening. Had the Haagor management d *sired to give up the team the other manager* might have been quietly notllled and a transfer would have been made without «uy ditlicuity, for plenty of goed finan cial baoking could have been found for the team und things would have gone along as smoothly as ever. This, how ever, was not what the Hangor people were aiming at. They wanted to kill the league and they were leaving nothing undone to accomplish this result. , Tha moment the other managers heard of the turn aff ilrs had taken they Im mediately made arrangement* with the Hangor players to come to Portland aid play on Taeaday n git just as though nothing had happened end then sent the players bask to Hangor with positive assurances that their interests would be protested A meeting of the managers was neia in Portland on Tucslay morning and at this meeting Mr Kicker of KlddeforU who has so successfully managed ama teur polo there for the past two years, was prtssnl. The managers at this time suspected treachery on U»e part cf the Kangor man agement and were taking no chances It was decided to send a repressntrtlve ol the league to Kangor to look the situ ation over. If the Kangor management bad merely quit because they had made money and did not desire to take a chance on losing any, then the league felt that affairs would he readily straightened out and the team would run along as smoothly as ever, hut if a NOT HEREDITARY In the main, consumption is not hereditary; it is infec tious.

It all depends on the gardener. So it its with coffee. No two plantations produce exactly the same berry. After quarter of a century as coffee importers, we began studying the plantations. 25 years had taught us coffee, 12 years more taught us where it was grown.

Other high grades in iifhly-colored parchment hags (moisture proof) different cculltlonof e fT sir* was found to exist then It was decided to waste no time whatever on Bantor, but to place a strong club In Blddeford. Mr. Kicker expressed his willingness to handle a professional club in Blddeford. He said that hla amateur games have drawn from five to six hundred people por nlgtt and with a profrssiotial attrac tion the attendance would Increase and he believed he could make money. All he asked was that the league should furnish bltn with a good team and this was readily agreed to. John Koberts went to Buogir on Wed nesday to look the polo situation over and he found that everything that pos sibly cculd be done had been done to kill the game there. When he attempted to make arrangesent-s for hiring the hall he found that a prohibitive prloe had been placed uuon toe hall and polo paraphernalia and ii was no use to try do business * there. Om of the men connected with the Bangor team smiling ly informed Mr. Koberts that the club had made f 150, but there was no chance for anybody else to do anything with polo In Bangor for the rest of the sfiiron. Mr. Koberts took a similar view of the else so Bangor as a polo town was wiped oil the slate by the league managers acri arrangements were at onoe set on foot to place a club in Blddeford. Macaber Hoe and Manager McKay will go to B d letord tedty to settle all details and on Saturday night the Blddeford j club will play at Bath just as though j Barg or had never been heard of In polo circles. The new Blddeford club will probably consist of Koberts and Walton rushers; Farrell, centre; Furbush or Wiley, half tack, and White, goal. Thla will make a strong and aggressive team and one that ahould make a bit with the Blddeford people. Tonight's game with Lewiston at City hall, la go'll? to he a contest worth going miles to see. Portluud and Lewiston have no troubles of their own and all the players have to think of Is winning games. Tbs greatest rivalry exists among the players, themselvis and as both team* are right on edge, a wonderful game of polo is sure to result.
