Scries of Baseball Matches.
John Bull vs. Oom Paul, on South
African grounds.
First match opened near Ladysmith
with Frenchy at tho bat and be scored
heavily, running up the score in magnificent style. Baseman Koch mado
a hums run for his side.
The next mutch, was also at Ladysmith, White to bat. The Boers threw
some nasty balls, but White batted
tbem hard, although he was held down
to the home plate. The Paulites in
their turn failed to score. With Jack
Tar in the pitcher's box, ho sent in
soma nasty enrves which at times
completely fooled old Whiskers. Jt
was a long game, but after an up-hill
fight White finally scored tlie winning
John Bull next put Buller to handle
the team, but after a couple of hard
games at the Tugela grounds in which
the Paulites butted Bulla- all over
the Held, John realized that both
Buller and Baseman Methuen wero not
In the Paulites class and reorganized
hti team with Bobs as pitcher and
Kitchener as catcher. This battery
completely fooled tho men with the
whiskers, complaint being made that
tbis battery did not play tha game as
Paul wanted, the result behi-; that old
Whickers- men were badly handicapped.
In the game at Paardeberg grounds
old Cronje waa hit all over the field,
and the way that Baseman Canuck
scored was a caution. They soon got
onto old Cronje's curves and home
runs were made as they pleased. When
Cronje went to bat he was brought in
on a hot drop by Pitcher Bobs, having
(ailed to score, The next matches were
simply a walk-over for John's new
battery,, and they soon played tho
Paulites down to the Pretoria grounds
without having been stopped.
John's juniors played a long game
at Mafeking with Powell in tbe pitch'
er's box, and the way he fooled the
boys with the whiskers was a treat,
while his method of stealing bases was
greatly admired. It is safo to say

The Football Team tor Field.
The football team to represent the
Golden club at Field on Monday will
probably leave somtime on Sunday for
the scene cf action. The team is a
strollg one and will undoubtedly give
a good account of itself nc mutter who
runs up against it, The boyn have
heen doing somo hard work on the
practico ground, although laboring
under a disadvantage owing to the ex-
iremely bad state ofthe field, which
is very lumpy in places and is mostly
under water, causing a shift from bad
to worse, where the ditches on either
aide of tho field givo hut very little
room for good playing. At. any raw
every player will work to win at the
tournament, tvhother the odds happen
to bo against him or not.
So far as known tbo team will Hue
up nt, follows: ���
Back���Wils-jn and Smith.
Half-back���Alexander, T. King and
Forward���Bookhout, Sinclair, Fullis

Spare men���Inches, Grady, Stalker,

northern section of the Orange River
Colony, where Gen. DoWet is causing

of rhe pride of Canada was stationed.
Thoy were attacked by usuporiornum-
ber of the enemy, and th* brave riders
of the plains (for they wero from tho
Northwest) were compelled to tako to
iheir horsos, sufforing severely. Three
troopers were killed and two troopers
and Lieut. Ingl's wounded, whilo two
others wero made prisoners. Tlie Boors
pursued the party to within rifle-shot
of their catap, when Trooper Waldy of
Calgary, not earing to be shot or cop
turod without making a good fight for
it, boldly jumped from his horso and
killed two Boers, while a third was
shot from enmp. Their friends dared
not attempt to remove tin bodies, so
the Canadians buried ihem.
for acceptable idess.

On motion to go iuto supply, Mr.
Richardson moved tlut clause 16 of the
contra* t between Her Majesty aud tho
Canadian Pacific railway company ratified by the parliament of Cauada on the
ISth of February, 1S8J, provides aa
'The Canadian Paoiflo railway bad
all stations sud station grounds, woik-
shops, buildings, yards and other property, rolling stook and appurtenances
required and use for the construction
and working thereof and tbe capital
stock ot the company shall be forever
free form taxation by the Dominion or
by any province hereinafter established
or by any municipal corporation therein, aud the lands ot the company in the
Northwest Territories until thsy ate
ei'ber sold or oocupijrf, shall also be
free Irom snoh taxation for 30 yean af*
ler tbe grant thereof from the crown.
"That in answer to an interpellation
in parliament on the 13th day of February, 1900, ub to tbe date of the termination of said period of exemption
from taxation, it was stated on behalf
of the government thut this is a matter
of legal opinion, which, if disputed;
oan only Le Eettled by judicial decision
"That the progress in the Moth west
ia enormously handicapped by lhe exemption ttom taxution of so vast a
quantity of laud as has been set apart
for the company and would be seriously paralysed should the tax exemption
be indefinitely o.ntiuned.
"That it appears from the debates
whioh ooourred when tho said contract
was before parliament and from the
wording of tbe aot itself, that the exemption was intended to oover a period
of not more than 30 years from the date
of the passing of said act, aod that it
was eo understood by the railway com-
piny, wbicb, on the conclusion ot the
bargain, raised f.'S.Ou 0,000 ou the security of the said laud grant.
"That for the foregoing reasons, iu
the opinion of this house, the lands
covered by tbe C.P.R. company will
become sobjeot to taxation ou Feb. 16,
1901,a and tbat all snob lands should
be patented ii tbe s.iid railway company on thai date, so tbat tbey may become subject to taxation as soon as the
exemption contemplated by parliament
at the passiug of the act has expired."
Sir Wilfrid Laurier suggested a reference of the question to the courts by
municipalities, but said he o.ulii not
accept the wording of tbe r Bolutiou as
presented. *
Sir Ofaar.'es Tupper held thtt the proposal was absolutely impracticable.
Mr. Oliver seconded and supported
the resolution. Mr. Rutherford sympathized with the resolution but he
would change that part whioh said that

ance of two-eight moon Is aoooinpanied
by a ahange of dynuty, and tbia doubt-

In every five yean tbis doubling of the
month is ssid to oocur twice. These

asked her chura Kate whether she regarded a girl bound by her promise to
"I suppose it is aocording to the point
of view. If it transpires that the
yonng man is utterly unworthy, I
presume it is right to drop him. If
convinced that he would not prove
compatible, it might be justifiable to
let him down as lightly as possible.
But I'm not up on the law and
rather inclined to think that moral
obligations are not considered particularly binding in this connection. Have
you a special case to present?"
"In strict confidence, yes. I promised
to marry Jack Dasher. I'm not certain that 1 ever loved him, but that
pernickety Miss Dubly was after him
and I just wanted to show her that
there are others. Of course she had
the nerve to fling her head right at him,
but I did what Jack called a fine piece
of interference and she was left."
"X infer from your slang that you
gratified your pique by cutting Miss
Dubly out and that you uro now ar-
ranging to throw Jack over."
"Precisely, mydear."
"It is heartless and unprincipled.
She is a noble girl and he is one of our
manliest young men."

have done what you can to wreck his
happiness.   Poor fellow!"
"Oh, that's the wny tho wind sets.
Well, I'll toll you just as plainly that
I've changed my mind. You needn't
worry your little head about consoling

I had paced the close cut sward at
least a dosen times. Tbe snn was already turning his fiery eye toward the
West It was not my lady's way to be
unpunctual, and, seeing the nature of
her business, I had not looked for delay.
Each time I passed the lilac bush 1
paused, fancying I heard the scrunch of
her tiny shoes ever the loose gravel path
that led down from tbe house. And
again and again was I disappointed. The
hour grew near.
I fumbled In my bosom for her letter,
to make a certainty of the matter. I
muttered over the words to myself; but I
bad no' need to hesitate upon them, for
my lady's fingers conld grasp tbe pen
with a lucidity of expression and a comfortable style that In tbe broad noontide
was as good as, nay, better than, any
clerk's.   It ran:
Your rtqunt Is s itrinf* eet, fetr friend, but

I had told ber 4 o'clock so that I might
enjoy a full hour's speech with ber myself and make quite clear tbe nature of
tbe thing���tbat Beauclerc, my friend, was
an honest and an amiable man and actuated by no unworthy motive in thus leaving me, master of his choice In regard to
a wife. I bad felt diffidence in the business at first, but when I bethought me of
poor little Audrey���so lonely and so comfortless up at tbe big house���my heart
bad swelled with a monstrous pity, and I
bad undertaken tbe commission at a
Beauclerc bad reasoned with me thus���
tbat I (being a poorer man and consequently more honest than be) should
know better of a fitting helpmate for his
declining years. "One must have a woman about the house, friend John," he
bad concluded, "at tbe last. 'Tis 111 going out of the world leaving behind no
one tb fight over your fortune or carry on
the name, and 1 will be a docile old
beast In'harness dn you but find me a
gentle and patient lady. Nay, marring*
Is all a lottery: I wuuld bave you choose
for me, so that I can have the small consolation of not blaming myself overmuch
should the venture prove a fitilnre. Dip
your band In Dame Fortune's lucky bag
and draw a prise, friend John, for me."
So I had mentally decided upon Audrey,
though I could bave wished to hare
been "dipping" for myself. But I wanted to make life brighter���not worse���for
my lady and so banished the thought as
best I could. But the pricking was tbere
I glanced at tbe sundial. It was nigh
on to G. Beauclerc might come at any
moment. It was certainly nim*t prorbk-
Ing. I dug my heels veugefully Into the
turf and bad ventured "just like a woman I" betwixt my set teeth when of a
sudden I beard a quick, impatient step,
god my tryst was at an end. "How
I stopped. It waa not Audrey after
all, but a stranger. I bowed stiffly und
began an apology.
"Sir," said the fair unknown, cutting
me rery short, "do I address a friend of
George Beauclerc?"
"Madame," replied I, with my best
bow, "It is my good fortune to name that
gentleman op tbe list of my acquaintances."
"Perhaps | should! have ssld the
friend,'" continued sho, with a heightening color. I noticed her looks more narrowly new that we stood side by side in
the shade of the lilac. She was older
thau my lady, and there was a line
'twiit her white brows that told of a
history, yet sbe was of a trim build and
very- beautiful still. Meanwhile sbe
eyed me with diffidence. "1 scarce know
how to make my errand clear to you,
sir," she went on presently, "bnt you
have, If rumor lies not, a delicate commission of yonr friend Beauclerc npon
your bands?"
I bowed again.
"We were formerly acquainted," she
said and paused. "But, like most friendships, ours had an end. Sir, corniot you
guess what I am at so mnch trouble to
make clear? Has George nerer even
mentioned to yon so little as my name?"
"Madnme," said I, "If so be yon are the
lady through whom my friend Beauclerc
so nearly lost bis life, I will be candid
with yon. In stating the nature of the
commission with wbich I have the honor
of being Intrusted, my friend expressed
one condition���that the lady who wonld
consent to bis proposals should not be of
the same name as���yourself."
"But If it were all a mistake?" she
cried. "If I could prove that It was a
mistake? Sir, credit me with a little
truth. Tbat letter arranging the assignation wbich so nearly terminated bis
life wns never penned by me. It was
long after I bad foolishly steeled my
heart against Dim and had utterly lost hia
Mtppm that tbp truth reached me-that
fleorge Beauejerp, so fet from being th-s.

Here a woman faithless than misdoubt
that fine thing honor!" t
Her words came all tn a rush; ber
voice wns so piteous that I could not hut
feci for and believe ber. "The proof,
madame?" I asked weakly,
"Is here!" Sht flourished a paper before me, addressed to Beauclerc. "The
true writer of that abominable letter
avows himself at lastl Yes, It was a
gross forgery, sir! See for yourself!"
She flung It to me Imperiously and triumphant.
I read the letter, and my beart sank
for Audrey. Here tn truth waa the woman that should mate with Beauclerc,
tt so hap he wert willing, and this I was
fain to think be would be now that��tht
truth was clear. I handed back the paper with a sigh, yet my heart was ligVjf
than I would have Imagined.
"Madame," said I at last, "yonr case
Is now my own. Yonder comes Beauclerc. Go you to meet him. Tbere is
my brief. Tell bim from me I dare swear
tbat you will do bis business more thoroughly than I." I gave her my card, with
a bow. Across the back I had scribbled
while I spoke, "The bearer, dear friend.
Is my choice." In a moment I and Saint
Lilac were once more alone.
But I trembled when I thought ot
Audrey. What wonld she say? Had I
not deliberately brought her on a fool's
errand? I stood mightily perplexed, my
ebln In my hand, half hoping that my
lady would not come, after all, now that
she was so late. Perchance I might get
to her home. I could explain then with
a better grace, although my knees knocked together at tbe prowpect of the Interview. "Zounds," I half muttered, "what
a pother I am In, to be snn!"
" TIs a bad sign you should talk with
yourself," suddenly came a voice from
behind the lilac. "Either you must be so
conceited as to deem no other worthy of
your speech or else your wits must be
woo) gathering."
It was Audrey. I knew her dear tones
at the first word. Strangely enough, now
that I was embarked on what bid fair to
be a perilous time, my spirits revived.
"You offer me a meager choice," I said,
rallying. "I will tell you why you find
me here so out of conceit with tbe
"You may spare yourself the trouble,
friend John," said she, coming Into view.
"I have been under tbe shelter of our
patron's wing"���sht bowed to the Mao���
"all through your strange Interview."
"Then you bave heard ?"I gasped.
"Every word," replied my lady, nodding ber little bead. I bad not dared to
raise my eyes, but I conld tell from thu
tone of ber voice tbat her golden cutis
were shaking at me. "You are a PSUgbty
man," she said severely.
I stealthily raised my glance, first taking In her little shoes, then slowly up
that dainty form till I reached her soft
blue eyes.
''Yon have made a great fool of me,"
she went op.
"My dear," said I, gaining a little
courage, "listen bow much greater fool
you have made of me. I love you with
all my heart and soul! Not till I was so
near .to losing you altogether did I know
bow dear you were. My scheming on

Somehow I found her gt my side���her

Startling Facts of a
Dr. Chase's Ointment.
Mr, B. Nicholson, Manor House, Winnipeg, Man., states:
"For several months I had been troubled with -eczema
on my Mrs, and (or weeks I doctored with a prominent
Winnipeg physician, but to no avail. I was induced by a
fellow sufferer tn try Dr. Chase's Ointment, and am happy
to say that the first application gave instant relief. Before
using all of the first box I was completely cured and have
had no return of this troublesome disease."   ***
Itching skin diseases of any kind are promptly and
effectively cured by Dr. Chase's Ointment, the standard
pf the world. Few remedies are so heartily endorsed by
hosts of grateful cured ones. Sixty cents a box at all
dealers, or Edmanson. Bates & Co., Toronto. -ft

to see whose It stood. A solid vote of
the legislature was recorded against tbe
selection of Joseph Martin as premier,
yet Governor Mclnues refused to obey
tbl. aud oalliid npon bim to form au
administration aod afterwards dissolved
tbe legislature to perm t Mr. Martin
appealing to tbe provinoe. The result
was tbat Mr. Martin met wltn an overwhelming defeat and now 83 of those
who were ele. ted out of a house ot 88
members have passed a resolution asking for the dismissal of tbe lieutenant,
governor. What ia peouliar about this
is that three ministers whom Molnnes
has jnst sworn iu and whose bounded
duty ought to have been in thst case
wben they did accept offlce to bare defended tbeir governor, bave instead
signed a resolution demanding his removal. These ministers are Dnnsrauir,
Eberts md Tomer. Tbe result wu
that at yesterdays' cabinet meeting lt
wu decided to ask Molnnes to resign.
If be does not then he will be dismissed
from offloe.

tbe two day's sessions. It was deoided
to support the new Dunsmuir government during tbe next session in pusiug
estimates and any necessary legislation
of a non-partisan character. Then there
is to be a reconstruction of tbe cabinet
so u to meet the views of all parts of
the province, the present p'eisounel not
being considered favorably by many of
the members.

Mrs. Egerton has been much struck
by tbe scenery along the line of the

the company rendered across tho continent, and she determined to let the

both. For thia purpose she availed
herself ot a fimcy ball at Covent
Garden Io appear Iti a cos tamo which
took first prizo for originality, and
whiob illustrated Canadian scenery
and the C. P. R. in a highly striking
manner. The lady's hat was trimmed
in a manner to show the C P.R. trains
in motion; her capo set forth Lake
Ontario, Lake Superior and the Rocky
Mountains, while the front of her
drees showed a train running at full
speed through the wonderful ravines
in the Northwest In the lady's hand
was a banner n-bich contained the
conts of arras of tho several provinces
constituting the Dominion. The tout
ensemble, as the London press remarked at the time, was wonderfully striking and imprepfUTO and gave at a
glance an idea of a country of which
Londoners, previous to the jubilee,
knew little. Mrs. Egerton, as Mr.
Baker, tbe C. F. R. agent in London,
pointed out, did all thin off " her own
bat," and solely with the patriotic
view of making Canada known. The
lady is coining out again, probably
this summer, when sho will make an
extended tour of the coiyitry. Photographs of Mrs. Egerton in-her unique
costume are nt the general offices of
the C. P. R.-Montreal Witness.
