'Moose" Johnson is under the weather.
The big defense athlete was injured se

The Uncle Sams returned home with
an 8-to-4 defeat charged to them at the
hands of the Metropolitans. Three more
games are on the schedule for the Port
landers and two of them must be vic

ship of the circuit. A win tonight will
make the 1915-16 race, so that there
will be no chance for the Oregonians
to obtain less than a tie at the end of
the regular season.
Victoria always has been noted for
giving the Portlanders a hard run for
their money each night. That the Aris
tocrats are in line to put up a great
match tonight can be taken from the
7-to-6 victory of the Vancouver world's
champions last Friday night. It took
11 minutes of overtime to set down the
tailenders and then it was when but
six of the losers were on tho ice.
Victoria will be the attraction in the
Portland Ice Hippodrome next Friday
night. Manager Savage has made ex
tensive preparations for a large attend
ance. Tho Uncle Sams will return to
Portland early tomorrow morning, ac
cording to present arrangements.

superbly tailored. But when you hear
that this man has been out of a job

that there's more to this than appears
It is just this: . HE BOUGHT HIS

it after he had paid a small fraction of

When, the other day, he found just
the opening he'd been looking for, ho
knew he couldn't be really "fit" to
