Amongst the Leader's many intelligent subscribers, the Leader Ib proud to
mt a young Irishman of intellectual
,. oclivilieB.    Like   thousands  of  hit
eels ir'A' countrymen this  young  lelluw
grieved mucli more sorely over John
-Dillon's extraordinary unreadiness and
willessncis than over the rudeness of
hi. retort upon Mr. Chambeilain'e cutting re mark.   Tbe Leader's young Hibernian Iriend cursed vehemently (in
the native Erse, of coarse, the queen of
languages for poetry and passion) when
he read ol how John Dillon had shown
the dulucss ol wit worthy of a Saxon,
When be ihould have let the world
haghlng at his opponent witb a rapier
thrust luch as   O'Connell or Parnell
[could have given,   And lie has handed
to this paper lor publication tbe following verbatim report of a driam he had
in which Ireland's reputation for wit
and ready satire is  amply sustained.
"I fell Bsleep, iike Mill, on the moan-
tain ot Bagdad," he writes, "sorrow and
shame for Dillon's stupidity and Ireland's name,  weighing me down like
lead, when suddenly I fonnd myself in a
scene of grandeur and great activity.
The hum of many volcei came to me,
wae tested at a sloping deek in a gallery
overlooking a great hall, sumptuously
appointed,  Gloriously the light streamed through tbe mullioned wiudows and
lit up with heavenly raidance the ei-
quiiite carvings in oak and stone, and
casta sainlly aureole around many a
bald head in the august convocation oi
grave personages Ecatcd in Ihe stall! and
benchel below.    It wai tbe   Britiih
Home of Common!, and I wai chief reporter for tb. London Dally Will, and
'special' for the Sligo and Ualway Annl-
bilator.   Shorthand li no name for mv
mechanical transference ol those speak-
sn' thoughts and words to my notebook.   Evening wote on and crimson
•nd purple splendours filled tbe chamber like a dream ot heavenly glory.   A
tall, tmootb-ibaven  man,   wearing a
monocle, bii nose tip-tilted, wonderfully like Pitt's; a mouth like a iword
■lash In the face, and eyes as bird ai •
raven'! rote, to ipeik,
"'Joe. first penon,' growled the old
grey chief reporter behind me to his
corpi of itenographers, 'two minute
gun; you liiet Smith.' And tff they
went, and le went and I.
"A line speech, bedad, but au un-
merciiul gait. Ah I he's coming to the
Beer war! Now for fun I Irish interiup
lions and inteijeoliona coma like popping shot! from a distant battery and
Chamberlain's temper wai rising. Hear

"Terrific uproar; hooti, cheers and
counter chccii. Mild demonstration ol

"Mr. Julin Dillon—Crrtafnly, that is
per led ly true; I lave been making a
special study ot the Rt. Hon. gentleman
for lome years.
"Renewed uproar, wild and long continued cheering, by the Irish, in which
the whole opposition pined, The hon.
member for Northampton (Mr. Henry
Libouchere) shouted: 'Bravo, eir, bravo I
Mr. Chamberlain turned very white,
fumbled nervootly with his papers ind
appeared lo be much confused. Upon
lilence belrg restored.
"Rt. Hon. Mr. Chamberlain—Doei

"Mr. Dillon.in a'deliberate tone-The
Rt, Hon. member's aclioni ipeik louder
than my words.
"An indescribable scene followed thli
remark, and Mr. Chamberlain nt down
—collapsed would be a better word. It
was impossible to teBtore order amongst
tbe Irish membeii, who frantically
oheered and applauded Mr, Dillon. Mr,
Speaker ruled that Mr, Dillon withdraw
his injurioui remark.
"Mr. Dlllon-1 will do so if the Rt.
Hon, member withdraw his equally In-
jurious expression. Both gentlemen
retracted snd neologised smld cheers."
Mr, Gilinoui'a bill to amend tbe

John Oldcrshnw and his wife, Margaret, lived on the bank of the Mississippi
river. They had everythlug they desired except children. Margaret after
waiting years for the advent of a little
one fell Into one of those perversions of
the maternal Instinct, tlie lavishing of
her affection on n ilunili brute.

not present even brushed Its teeth.
"What do you want to mnke s child
ef a dog for?" John would ask snappishly.
"I love Spotty deirly," Margaret
would reply.
One morning John overheard his wife
talking to tbe dog: "Spotty, dear, I
want you to go nud bring me a baby.
You'll bud It louiewhere—tn the wood
perhaps. It wlll he ln a silk handkerchief, tied at the comers. There will
be a bit of paper pinned to tbe handkerchief, giving the baby's name and telling why Its mother left It In tbe wood,
poor woman!"
"That's a likely thing to happen,"
muttered John.
"Take the handkerchief In your
teeth," Margaret went on, "where th.
tour corners are tied together .nd
bring the child to me."
John went to Memphis to a foundling
asylum and applied for a baby to

-Womnu's Life.
The First "Strnd" Sent lo London
Conld Find No Purchaser.
Italian violins have not always held
the supremacy they now enjoy. It was
not indeed till the beginning of the
nineteenth century tbat they came into
rogue to any extent outside their native land. Previously Jacob Stelner
(1021-83) was tbe favorite maker, and
his high model bad been almost exclusively copied by his fellow Germans
and the different makers In France nnd
England. When tho elder Corvette,
who had been a merchant before enter-
lug the musical profession, came to
Loudon, In 1738, he brought witb hint
somo Instruments by Stradivari. Tbe
result of this endeavor to Introduce
Italian work Into England fills one with
pathetic wonder. It ls almost beyond
belief. As he could not get as much as
t"5 ($25) for a violoncello he was obliged
to send the Instrument hack to Italy
for a bad speculation. Five pounds for
a "Strnd," nnd not a single purchaser
to he found!
This incident in Itself furnishes sufficient testimony to the slavish following
of the great German maker and the
strong prejudice of the violinists ot
that period in favor of tho high model.
It Is Indeed tbo players who are most
to blame for the Blow adoption of tbe
flat model, for tbo creator must make
what is necessitated by tbe" demand;
but tho eighteenth century fiddlers, at
Buy rate In England, France and Germany, seem for tbe most part to have
been content that their violins should
possess a small sweet tone, never residing tbe lack of power and sonority.—

Tumi Mel, n Chineso writer, "by which

Ben slugs, whlcb are not first rate, is a
dish of bamboo shoots.
"The chicken, the pig, the fish and
the duck—these are tbe four heroes ot
tho table. Sea slugs and birds' nest
have no characteristic flavors of tbeir
own. They are but usurpers In tbe
house. I once dined witb a friend who
gave ns birds' nests In bowls like vats,
holding each about four ounces of tbe
pin In boiled article. The otber guests
npplnuded vigorously, but I smiled and

He Understood.
Anton Rubinstein, tbe Russian composer, In his autobiography tells of the
confusion which overcame a certain
architect of his acquaintance who bad
a habit of interlarding all bis remarks
with the phrase, "Vou understand."
On one occasion bo was explaining
certain architectural matters to the
emperor, and, according to custom,
made free use of his favorite expression.

Nicholas at last Irritably. "Of coarse I

Tbii wis a well played match ol Association football on the bunker grounds
Satnrday night, in presence ol a large
and enthusiastic crowd of spectators,
in fine weather; aud resulted in a win
lor tbe Ruahen by one goal to nil. The
teams were as follows:
Rushers:—J. Dunbar, goal; 0. Hewlett and T. O'Connell, backs; J. Eno, C.
McMillan and Ed. Leahy, half backs;
Joe Sanderson, centre; J. McMillan and
B. McMillan, right wing; A. Kerr and
S. Oonlin, lelt wing,
Roveist—J. Mauuell, goal; Campbell
and Burns, backs; W, Mauuell, B, eraser and Fraser, half backs; A. Morrison,
centre; H. Munuell and S. Kerr, right
wing; J.Blair and A. Sanderson, left
Referee, Mr. Fullerton; Linesmen,
Mr, Slacey and Mr. White.
Spirited play was witnessed from tbe
kick-oil', both sides working well together, bnt without result! in scoring
until a few minutes before closing the
first half, wben C. McMillan sent in a
baiutlful long-range, straight kick
which pnt the ball clean through tbe
centre of the goal, The second half was
marked by good strong play, the Rusher! making every effort to add to their
success, but without avail. The Hovers"
deserve great praise for their determined
work in trying to equalize. Another
match is talked of for one night this
week probably Saturday.
The following are the team! which
took part in tbe big international con-
test at Ibrox Park on April 5th:
Scotland:—Doig, Sunderland, goal;
N. Smith, Drummond,Glaigow Rangen,
backs; Aitken, Newcastle United, Rail-
beck, Liverpool, Robertson, Glasgow
Rangen, half backs; Templeton, Aston
Villa, and Walker, Heart of Mid-Lothian, right wing; Brown, Tottenham
Hotspur, centre; Campbell, Celtic, and
A, Smith, Glasgow Rangen, left wing
England:—George, Alton Villa, goal
Ccompton, Blackburn Roven, Molyneux,
Southampton, backs; Wilkes, Alton
Villi, Formin, Notts Forest, and lioul-
ker, Blackburn, half backs; Hogg,
Sunderland, and Bloomer, Derby County, right wing; Heats Wolverhampton
Wanderers, centre; Settle,Everton, and
Oox, Livarpcol, lelt wing I rwards,

In reporting the election ol officer! of
tbe Ladyimith baseball club an error
wai made. J. Mottran is secretary-
treaiurer, and W, Manuel captain ol the
second nine. The club expect to hive
the moit prosperous season in their history thli summer.
II there are iu Lidyimlth any oars
men who wonld like to take np again
the practice oi single sculling, or arrange lor pain or lours, and ;;et to work
at once, a line addressed to "Oanman,1
Ladyimith post office, will probably
bring tbem lome interesting information. The contention is that Ladyemith
with a courie which Is without a peer In
the province, should have at least
dozen good oaremen—tingle icullen.
"Oanman" can inloim any meeting
■cullen which may be held as a remit
ol thil notice where outrigger! suitable
for practice snd racing may be had "for
along." First cost is usually a draw
back in tbe formation of a sculling club,
but in tbii cue the difficulty ii reduced
to the irreducible minimum.
Good iport li still being enjoyed in
the w.ten near Lidyimlth by the ang-
ieri. One or two good catches were
made last week, the average weight be
ing well up to the local standard, Oo
Sunday quite a number took advantage
ol tbe line weather to try their look,
Tj.morrow evening nl 7:30 a meeting
ol all interested in Canada's national
game will bs held in tbe Leader office,
with tbe intention oi forming a lscro.se
club. It li hoped that everybody in any
way intereited in Ihe iport will be
prennt, and that potion wlll be taken at
once to put a couple uf good teami in
tlie field (or practice thli summer.
