Edward B. Cox, formerly of this city,
but who has been living in Courtenay
for several months.
The Northern Seed Company is one
of Valley City's largest business en
terprises, and has grown in a few
years from a small beginning to a
place where it has secured recognition
in every city in the .Northwest. As an
advertisement for the city, it has been
worth as much as any establishment
ever located here, with the possible
exception of the State Normal school,
and every season literally millions of
packets of seed are sSTpped out bear
ing the name of The Northern Seed
company of Valley 'City.
Mr. Cox the new manager, brings to
the company a long business exper
ience whose success insures a conser
vative management and steady growth.

Emphasosing the need of knowledge
of household science in order to get
the most happiness out of life, Mrs.
Guedlen of Ft. Wayne, Ind., member of
one of 'the leading committees of the
National Federation of Women's clubs,
addressed the teachers at the State
Normal school today.
Mrs. Gulden placed particular stress
upon getting the real knowledge that
would be beneficial throughout life in
place of the superficilitie* that are
so often dwelt upon in the larger col
leges and universities. She declared
.that too much influence was exerted
by dress and style in the great
schools and advised the attending of
the smaller educational Institutions.
Mrs. Gulden is enroute from the
San Francisco convention to her home
and is stopping at a number of places
on the way. She was accompanied by
Mrs. Frank White who has been at the
convention as one of the speakers and
leaders in the national federation, hav

First No-Hit Game in
Base Bail This Season
Toledo, Ohio, Aug. 5.—'After the ter
rific walloping the Millers handed the
Mudhens Thursday the Toledo fans
"were prepared to see a sweet revenge
perpetrated yesterday at Swayne field.
But, Oswold, such was not the case.
Instead of a victory the Hens were
made the victims of that one great
a no-hit game. During the nine long
innings of Toledo attempts to get to
the Millers' most recent and brilliant
recruit from the ranks of Spavindom,
but twenty-seven (Hens were allowed
to take their regular time at bat. One
pass was issued by the spitball artist,
but his support evened up the thing by
pulling off a neat double play.
Only one other no-hit game has been
registered by a pitcher in any of the
big leagues this season. George Mul
lin, the old 'Detroit standby, was the
other gent who pulled off the famous
game with St. lLouis, when as a cele
bration of his birthday, he tossed a
no-hit shutout.
iLelivelt faltered but once in his
stunt of passing the Hens along in
one-two-three order. In the first in
ning he passed the first man up. From
that time on he never was anything
but complete master of the situation
iHis record came mainly through use
of the spitter. With his damp delivery
working like a dream, he showed won
dertftil control, cutting the corners and
slipping them over without the slight
est difficulty.
No-Hit Contestants
Are Rare Things
Lelivelt's performance against To
ledo yesterday was the first no-hit
game pitched in the American associa
tion since Aug. 30, 1910, On that day
Schardt of Milwaukee turned the
trick against the Indianapolis club.
There were three no-hit contests in
the association last year. Laroy of
iSt. Paul did the job against Indianap
olis in July and Robinson of Toledo
shut out Kansas City without a blow
In June.
No-Hit games appear to be getting
more uncommon each year. To date
not one has been recorded in the (Na
tional league this year. George Mul
lin of Detroit boasts the only one in
the American this season. On July 4
he did the stunt against the St. Louis

Winnipeg, IMan., Aug. 5.— If the
officials of the Central International
Baseball league do not change their
tactics toward the Winnipeg baseball
club there promises to be some inter
esting developments which may result
in the disruption of the organization
in the course of a week or so. Accord
ing to Manager James Brown the
league is endeavoring to hold up the
local club in regard to the playing of
the civic holiday games here on Aug.
1'2 by knocking the proposals of the
club at every turn.
Superior and Winnipeg clubs have
agreed to switch their series schedul
ed for Superior to Winnipeg, but the
league is butting in and will not allow
it, and says that Grand Forks must
play here on the holiday and go as far
as to say that the date should be pool
ed, owing to it being a holiday. This
on the fact of it is regarded as an in
justice, as it is only a civic affair and
not a dominion holiday, so that the
local club is entitled to the whole re

Chicago, Aug. 7.—Theodore Roose
velt made his "confession of faith"
to the national Progressive conven
tion. The former president struck out
boldly into new ground, advocating
measures which he said frankly would
be denounced as either socialism or
anarchy. The delegates listened to his
speech with the understanding that
they must either adopt a platform sub
stantially in consonance with his
views or look elsewhere for a nomina
tion for the presidency.
"The two old parties," he said, "are
husks, with no real soul within either,
divided on artificial lines, boss ridden
and privilege controlled, each a jum
ble of incongruous elements, and
neither daring to speak out wisely and
fearlessly what should be said on the
vital issues of the day."
As opposed to this incongruity and
Insincerity of action he asserted that
the national Progressive platform will
be "a contract with the people," with
definite and concrete provisions to be
carried out if the people ratify the
contract on election day as exactly
and honestly "as if it were actually
enforceable under the law."
Roosevelt Creed In Brief.
The real danger to privilege comes
from the new party and from the new
party alone.
We should provide for:
Presidential primaries.
The election of United States sena
tors by popular vote.
Corrupt practices acts.
The recall of judicial decisions on
constitutional limitations.
Our aim is to control business—not
to strangle it.
I believe in a protective tariff, but 1
believe in it as a principle, approached
from the standpoint of the interests of
the whole people and not as a bundle
of preferences to be given to favored
We believe there exists an impera
tive need for prompt legislation for the
improvement of our national currency
There can be no greater issue than
that of conservation in this country.
The Panama canal must be fortified.
We do not impugn the courts, but
emancipate them from standing in
the way of social justice. The people
must keep in their own hands the
right of interpreting their own con
stitution when tljeir public servants
