CrAftD THE CUB
^wUr REPORTER Heaver. Experience in Playing for World's Title and Crack Pitching Staff Should Give Boston Best of the Argument Fuller ton Predicts Ruth Will Be Premier By "GILL" While the Phillies were losing a double bill to the Boston Braves in the National league yesterday the Brooklyn Dodgers won their game with the New York team, thereby clinching the flag in the National lea gue and the honor to contend for the World's championship for the fourth time in the history of organized base ball in the city of Brooklyn. Should Brooklyn, lose their two remaining games with the Giants and the Phil lies win the games they still have to play Manager Robinson's club would Btill retain their hold at the top of [the percentage column. The contenders for the highest base ball honor this year will be the Brook lyn team, representing the National league, and the Boston club, represent ing the American league, winner of the world's championship in 1915. The race jp both circuits has been the closest for the past few years and the fans have been kept on edge throughout the past month. Fans in every section of the United States will await the outcome of the coming series with unusual interest. Baseball bugs in Bismarck and vicin ity will be no exception to this rule and already the maniacs have been doping out the relative strength of the two teams. The concensus of opinion seems to point to the fact that the Boston club will have the best of the argument. One reason for this statement is due to the fact that the Red Sox have had a deal of experience playing in a series for the world's title whereas the Dodgers have not contended for the pennant for several seasons. Without a doubt pitching will be the leading factor in the series and will no doubt decide just who will cop the bunting. The pitching staff ~t the Red Sox is at present in the st of condition.

Cedar Rapids, Iowa V&ULLLIKE, OSED'td Logons HI EDGE Oil DODGERS III THE 111 SERIES artists have been overworked. George Foster, who won two games from the Phillies last year, has been laid up with a sore arm for some time and it is a question as to whether or not he will be able to mount the rubber in any of the contests. Passing up Foster eastern critics assert that nevertheless Carrigan's crew still has the best of the argu ment. Hughie Fullerton is of the opin ion that Carrigan will start Ruth in the opener Saturday and also pre dicts that Ruth will be the star heaver in the series. "Dutch" Leonard will be another good bet for the Sox while Shore will be on the job as usual. The latter is one of the coolest twirl ers under fire and fans from the home of the Baked Bean are looking for great things from this bird. Mays is another man who can be used in a pinch and critics claim that he will be an ideal hurler to send in in a pinch. The Brooklyn corps has been a puz zle all season. Pfeffer and Dell, the wonder workers of the early stages of th§ race, have recently exhibited symptoms of slipping, their decline being due to heavy work thrust upon them. &mith pitched good ball earlier in the race, then wobbled and in the last stretch Robinson was forced to rely chiefly on Marquard and Cheney. Cheney is an iron man and one of 1 he most effective spitball pitchers in the National league. Cheney, Marquard, Pfeffer and Smith will bear the brunt of the series' hurling, with Coombs a pos sible starter. FARGO ELEVENS WILL BE IN ACTION SOON Fargo, N. D., Oct. 3.—All three Far go football teams will be in action this week, Fargo college playing Jamestown college here Friday the North Dakota Aggies playing the Wahpeton School of Science Saturday in this city, and the Fargo High school meeting the Casselton High school at Casselton on the same day. The Aggies went into their practice work today on a tougher basis. Coach Davis anticipating giving his men some real work this week. Fargo college escaped without in juries in the game against the Uni versity of North Dakota. Neither the Moorhead High school, Moorhead Normal school or Concor dia college, play this week. AIN'T NATURE WONDERFUL? By GENE AHERN. "Babe" Ruth, the Boston Red Sox pitcher, has never been asked to write beauty secrets for a woman's magazine. The only things that keep Ernie Shore, the aviator pitcher, from be coming a bass drummer are his knees. All the Red Sox players knock wood for good luck. As the Braves' park, where the world series is to be played, isn't constructed of that ma terial. it'll be kinda tough for them unless there are some wrestlers pres ent. The bird who chirps "The game ain't over until the last man is out," makes us think of the great, proverb not from Ben Franklin. "Breakfast ain't over until the egg is off the chin." Some of the streets in Bahston are so narrow a fellow can't fall over, and sii are the doors leading into the .sporting editor's rooms for fans who want free tickets. zr feoOGHrr It) Wgptf?

McGraw of the New York National league club, left the playing field in the fifth in* ning of today's game between Brook lyn and New York and retired to the clubhouse. Manager McGraw did not appear on the field after that inning. that although he did not believe any of the players tried deliberately to favor Brooklyn, they had refused to obey orders and itad disregarded sig nals. "When Perrltt wound up with a man on first base, allowing the run ner to steal second, I lost my patience and left the bench/' declared the New York leader. "I have worked too hard this year to stand around and watch playing like that, and I re fused to be connected with it." French, living near Kensal, Stuts man county, rushed into the struc ture and was badly burned about the hands and chest. The barn, with sev eral stacks of hay, was destroyed. 'Mrs. T. Ekeland, wife of Rev. T. Ekeland of Kioshan, South Hohan, Chine, where both were stationed as missionaries, is dead, according to word which has just reached Mrs. E. P. Olson of Medina, sister of Mrs. Ekeland. Death was due to tubercu losis. Ten more days will see threshing in the vicinity of the James River valley completed. Early ripening of grain this year and the fact that little of the wheat crop was cut, gave the farmers an opportunity to get into their fields earlier than usual and get their fall plowing well ad vanced. A bitter fight is on in this Fifth Judicial district, between Judge J. A. Coffey of Jamestown and Atorney A. P. Paulson of Valley City, for the district judgeship. It will be the only interesting fight in this part of the state during the fall campaign. Owing to the office being non-parti san, Attorney Paulson has a right on the ballot at the general election.
