Mb Won
from Simpson
Alfred Shrubb, the peerless Utile
English runner, on Saturday evening,
decisively demonstrated his superiority over Fred Simpson, the Indian
runner, who has been tented as a rival to the famous Longboat.
Shrubb and Simpson met in a
twelve-mile race in thc Armories at
Toronto, and at lhc finish Shrubb
was over half a 'mile in the lead, tajst
ing tilings so easy that his supporters claim that he could hav.e made it
a mile had he wished. The crack
English runner mrjde very creditable
time, too, covering tho distance in H
hour 0 minutes and 33 seconds.
Following his usual course, Shrubb
jumped out and took the lead at the
Crii'k of the pistol 1 and although
Simpson put on several spurts at different times during the race, he could
not overhaul thc fleet-footed Englishman. Shrubb met every spurt of the
Indian with even a faster burst of
speed, practically beating Tom Eck's
protege at his own game.
At tho conclusion of thc l'acc it was
announced that Tom Longboat had
challenged his rival redskin runner,
Simpson, for a twelve-mile race. It
is also probable that Longboat) will
meet Shrubb in the postponed fiftecn-
milq race that has been thc cause of
so much dispute ever since the Indian
refused to keep lib} engagement with
the B'.iiglishuian.

complain were made in error owing
.to a mistake :ai the name of a colliery company in a despatch. We regret very much that, reprehending
what we understood was likely to
hurt the tewn of Ladysmith, we created for the moment the impression
that it was about to sutler somewhat. We discovered tho error, however, within a day ar two and the
correction for which yo.u ask was
made of our own motion at once and
given equal prominence. You will
find it in an issue published March

Mayor Nicholson, renlifc'fig that no

of Ladysmith had no desire to. withhold from Mr. Brent whatever security ho deemed ample for the loan,
and that the by-law would be placed

was received from Toronto. This

Archbishop Magrc was once present
at a full-dress debate on the cost-
ward jr>»ition, when doubts were expressed as to thc exact meaning of
the words, "betore the table." After
a speech or two, Dr. Wngee seized a
piece of paper nnd wrote;
"As to the phrase, 'The piper that
played In fore Moses,' doubts have
arisen. Some believe ils meaning to
be that 1 ho piper played br-to-.e Mos
es—that is, af a period anterior to
his birth, Others hold that the piper played before Moses in the sense
of preocding the great law-giver when
he danced; while others teach that
I lie piper played (coram Mose), beiore
or in the presciicevof Moses, when the
son of Amrnn dined. All these arc
wrong. The phrase is to be understood as implying that thc piper
played at the north end of Moses
looking south."
The document was handed up to
ArchbiShpii Tail, who. looted grave.

"It is very gratifying to know that

"Oh,-no," answered the child in a
