By shutting out the Keds yesterday the premier hurler for the Phillies hung up his thirteenth shutout victory for this season and es tablished a new record for the league in shutout games for a single season. Alexander allowed seven hits, but his control was almost perfect. He did not give a base on balls, nor did he hit a man. The previous' best record for shut out games in the National, according to all available records at the league j headquarters, was J2, held jointly by Alexander and Christy Mathewson. Alexander equaled Mathewson !s stunt last season when he pitched his team to victory 12 times without allowing a run. Mathewson pitched his way to 12 white wash wins in 1908. Records showing shutout games for seasons do not go back farther than to 1901 but it is probable Alexander and Mathewson held the record until I yesterday for prior to the birth of tho American league shutout games were rare. Wfllsh In Great Form. Colorado Springs, Colo., Aug. 19. With both men on the ground and actual training well under way, fight fans today centered their attention on the conditioning program of Light weight. Champion Freddie Welsh and his challenger, Charley White, for their scheduled 20-round decision bout here Labor Day. Welsh astonished even his friends when he stepped on scales be fore leaving Denver last night nnd weighed in at 129 1-2 pounds. Many of his friends believed the champion took a long chance of weakening him self in pulling his weight down to that notch. Freddie declared he did it simply to show what he could do in the way of reducing. From now on his efforts will bo devoted to building up to the 140 pound mark and from that will gradually scale' down to the 135 pound stipulated weight. Challenger Charley White, as a pre paratory hike, showed the Colorado guardsmen now mobilijsed nt fl olden, a stunt yesterday. Charley paid n visit to the camp and after nu impromptu reception and a trial of the new army guns, set out for an endurance march, accompanied by hundreds of militia men. The guardsmen were' pretty well fagged out by the time Charley finished this new kind of workout. Daring Drivers Ready For Great Speed Event Speedway Park, Maywood, 111., Aug. 19. Daring drivers in speedy mounts, having a qualification record of bet ter than 100 miles an hour in trial spins lined up at the tape on the 2 mile wood oval here this afternoon and waited tor the official signal to dns'n away on the Speedwny (Irand Piix Cup race of six laps, for $10,000 in prizes. The (irand Prix takes the place of the Klgin road race which for many yenrs was one of the big sporting ev ents in automobile circles. Copying after the running of horse races, the event here today is divided into six "heats." Five heats of twen ty miles each are to be run, the win ner of each heat qualifying as nn en trant in the final 50 mile prize award ing event. It was a process of elimi nation, those winning in the first five heats being the entrants in the final spin. Because of the way the race was to be run, fans predicted that records for the distances would bo smashed. Keen rivalry between drivers entered added to the gennral interest of the big crowd that assembled here early. The race Is being staged under the rules of the American Automobile association.

LOJU S LAST CHANCE Kotula to Pitch for Camas His Actions Speak Louder Than Ris Words The medicine-n.nkera are busy in the camp of the Lojus today, for the last lingering chance "for the team to win the llllti pennant is hanging like n pink cloud on a far horizon, and there is need Tor big medicine-making. When Camas comes to town tomor row they will be accompanied by a pitcher whose picturesque name is Ko tula. Kotula is a deaf mute. Local history dating back only as far as the 14th of last May relates that this same Kotula pitched one side of a game which continued for 14 innings. It would not have been ended yet perhaps had Kotula not become weary of twist ing and untwisting his pitching wing in an endeavor to break the 2 to 2 tie in favor of Woodland. But he became weary, and having be come so he walked up to the plate when his turn came to do so and bntted the pill into the creek which adorns the far side of the ball park. Two ruuners were on the bases when he gave thi-a sign of his weariness, and they scored and he scored, aud that was how Salem lost to Woodland. In this game he struck out 19. Tomorrow will witness his first appearance here since that much remembered day. Cole will pitch for the locals. Of the three games he has pitched here tliis season he has lost but one. In the recent Chautauqua series nt Oregon City playing with Cnnby, he lost but one game out of four. The balance of the Loju line-up will differ from that of last. Sunday only in the absence of Kennedy, whose place at first buse will be taken by Keene. "Chief" Houser will conduct the re ceiving exercises for the battery, "Fris co" Kdwards will play at second, O'Brien at third, Miller at short, nnd that justly celebrated trio, Keinhnrt, Origgs and Adams, will cover the out field.

Spring wheat growers through both the Dakotas and Minnesota will confer here today on a p'an to combine nnd demand that what they consider legitimate prices for their grain. O. 8. Morris, of the editorial depart ment of the Non Partisan Leader, Far go, will be one of the speakers. The Leader is the organ of the Farmers' party that recently swept North Dako ta in a political primary victory. "Kach raiser of spring wheat will get a chonce to tell of the cost of pro duction of spring wheat," said Norris today. "We shall then add a reason able profit and arrive at a reasonable price per bushel. When that price isn't paid, farmers will be equipped to store the wheat a sufficient length of time to command the proper price. Discrimina tion must bo stopped. A Slow Process. "Look here, Mary," suid tho hus band angrily. "I shall be lute at the office again! It is half past 8, and not a sign of breakfast yet!" So the lady of the house sought the kitchen, with the idea of repri manding the new maid for being late in the morning. "It mustn't happen again," she said firmly. "I suppose you overslept yourself f" "You see, It's this way, ma'am," said the girl, in regretful tones, "I'm a slow sleeper and it takes me a long while to get a good night V test." Goggles Writes About Gossips and Gossipy Stories About the City Dear Annie: So Ben Oillignn'B sister-in-law who lives at Chehnlis wrote home to Ben's wife that the Northwest had been having a business depression, did she? Well, well! Also she wrote that she wns told that Salem and other Willamette valley towns were almost dead, did she? Dear, dear! Now you take it from me, Annie, Ben's sister-in-law is off her trolley. There has been a depression nil right, but that is an "almost dead" story Say, listen to me: You've noticed the enjoyment that a good many of the two-legged animals called men or women, according to the kind of gar ments they wear, take in somebody else's long drawn out and painful ill ness nnd in agonizing deaths. You remember the remark made by old lady Carter when dim Bruson 's wife took a turn for the better after six weeks of suffering. Old lady Carter said, "O, isn't that too bad.'' She was a dear old lady too. But she had set her heart on a funeral, and Jim's wife's re covery plumb disgusted her. Well, the some principle applies in the case of towns, I rccken. Times harden up a bit, like candy from too much boiling, and a little story about slow business goes out from a town, and pretty soon it gets to be a big story. Every time it comes to a person who is cursed with the powers of imag ination a lot of trimmings are added to it. Reports have been in circulation tliut more than a thousand houses in Salem are vacant. The snine story has been told of Portland, with the figures en larged to a frightful degree. And of Seattle nnd Tnconia nnd Spokane. As to Salem the report is grossly exag gerated, and 1 have an idea it is like wise exaggerated , ns to the other principal, cities mentioned also. There are exactly 450 vacant bouses in Salem, a whole lot of which are shacks and tumbledown relics of an earlier day. This figure is absolutely correct. You may fire it with perfect confidence nt the first susurratiiig ped dler of swollen stories you meet. Maybe T told you once what is the mutter with Salem. Over stimulation, you know, (lot ah end of the country from which it draws its life blood and all that sort of thing. Every town in the west has had much the same ex perience nt one time or nnother. Them are however exceptions to the march of progress in Salem. The Southern Pacific passenger depot is one of them. The cemeteries are an other. Folks here don't tuke the ceme tery proposition so seriously ns they do in some parts. Burial is the merest sort of an incident. A great number of the corpses here and throughout the valley are not yet buried. They are walking mound distributing sepulchral protests against taxes nnd occasionally dropping a rust-eaten monkey wrench into the cogs of the machine which is earning the Willamette valley to its glorious destiny. Salem is famous for its sea breeze. The sea breeze is not appreciated by the (dder inhabitants. They have come to take il ns a matter of course, and they hick and growl, when they feel like kicking ami growling, right in its very teeth; but the newcomer considers it in the light of the mildly miraculous. jit is cert ii i nl v nn nil right little old I wind all right, Annie. Laden with the i taiM' of the sea, it conies across ninun- tains nnd pine forests and fruit orchards and fields of grain and clover, taking on betimes qualities from each. A wonderful wind, never given to violence, and fnithfiil as the days themselves. And, speaking of breezes, there is a number of them walking about town everv day whom it would do your henTt good to meet. Not all the citi zenship of Snlein is made up from those who worship at the shrine of n god they cnll conservatism, but which is in reality niossbnckism.

FATIMA C dl Sensible Cigarette "The Censor Is Not The Damn Fool You TakeJKm to Be" By Hal O' Flaherty, (United Press Stuff Correspondent.) London, Aug. L (By Mini) "The censor is not the damn, fool you take ! him to be." - The above line was penned by a i Tlvitittll PDiwnr nnnn n lntKir frt nn officer at the front to his wife, in i which an ingenious code was discov ered, It meant to disclose to the anx ious wife just where her husband was fighting, but it was spoiled by the censor nnd an order was issued by the war office prohibiting such practices. Before the officer who wrote the code letter, left for the front, he se cured two maps showing the entire British fighting line. The maps were identical. One he left with his wife and the other he took with him. Thereafter, each time he wrote a let ter, he placed the stationery on his map, stuck a pin through it directly over I'd ris, another directly over Brus sels, and a .third tit the point where he was stationed. Vpnn receiving the letter, his wife would superimpose it on her map, adjusting the extreme pin holes over Paris nnd Brussels, nnd her husbands whereabouts would lie indi cated by the middle hole. u Ins is but one of a score of codes and secret signals discovered by the j trnry to the general belief, this act censors recently.

Each map was laid out in blocks nn inch square; each square could be identified by combina tions of letters indicating each line of squares from left to right. Down the left hand side was another row of let ters. In writing home, the officer would say: "(live my regards to L. A. Smith." Being a fictitious name, the wife would know it ns a key to her secret code.

CANADIAN HARVESTS Lust year t'liiiadn's soil production wns the greatest in the history of tho country. This yenr the crops will not be so large. In Ontario and (Quebec they will probably full below the av erage, in the prairie and maritime provisions they will from present indl cntions, be good. If, on the whole, the harvest yield shull fall cousidei iildy short, of lust year's, its value, ow ing to n higher range of prices, is likely to be greater. One crop ot im mense importance to Canada, in viw of its relation to the empire and to imperial interests at this time, Is h.iy. The yield in this particular will, pei iinps, exceed that of any previous year. So iibundaiitly have tho grasses grown in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick that observant travelers through thovc provinces recently, have murvcled o. r the opportunities they afford for stork raising. Everywhere, on countryside and roadside, clover, timothy mid h o' gnriun hnve carpeted the land, 'fin' early rains and dry weather later have made it possible to grow and to harvest record liny crops throughout all enstciu Canada. The reports from Manitoba, Sn katchewan and Alberta are generally encouraging. British Columbia will have, it is thought, an average griiu crop. Better facilities for trnusportnw the products of the western side of the Dominion than iiuve existed in the past, and a general determination to prevent waste, will, it is believed, more than compensate for shortage in some localities and in certain crop-).
