But they had the satisfaction of meeting the baseball-  lacrosse team of Vancouver at  Armstrong' and breaking even in  a six-inning game which was  characterized in spots by some  very sharp play.n  Their defeats came Labor Day.  In the morning the Okanagan  Sawmill's team beat them by a  score so one-sided it looks better  not to put in cold type. They  played ragged ball.  In the afternoon in a 10-inning  game with the team from Chase  they gave the game, away by  switching from baseball to marbles���������������������������or something between. It  was a good game���������������������������said to be the  best of the season. The game  stood 6-6 at the end of the ninth  Then with...two men out, th*.  switch came. They had a runn* r  between 2nd and 3rd and bunched to catch himV An overthrow  and the game was lost.  At Armstrong Wednesday in  the pilfeence of a strongly sym-  pathe������������������ field they met the Van-  couve-Bteani, Here they, showed  up faifly well against the Coast  Players, but lacked the., "pep"  shown by the visitors. At the  end of the sixth inning the game  was cancelled owing to darkness,  with the sOore standing 4-4.  *      MABEL LAKE NEWS  VANCOUVER WINS  .'/-  Things We Want to Know  Mr. John Pringle, formcrl of  Armslrong,c"amc in from Standard, Alia., last Friday and  spent a few days renewing acquaintances. ;  - - -' ---a  Who  thc   rancher   was  who  put in for 23 hours' work on the  tire In one day, and why hc did  not make a night of il'/  X  When the pole drive is coming down thc river, and how  much- lhc contractor _will clear  out of them. \   , "'7'-''  '-'-  /V-   J   .
