all. The following is the score by
Beavers-il 3 0 10—1.
Baby Giants—f, 1 0 0 »—7.

The "sharper wind" predicted for
Alsace-Lorraine as a result of the
Viceroys has already begun to blow.
One of the first indications was the
recent order forbidding army recruits
from the Reichsland to be mustered
into regiments of their home provinces. Another is the following para -

(specially upon the return of ex-

in the French .-olors are worn in a

advisable to direct attention to the
fact that under article 6 of the decree

Repeated incidents in the conquered
provinces show how widespread the
anti-German fooling is among difler -
ont classes. The most recent incident
is reported from Suarburg, where tho
pastor of the state church refused to
have tho church belli rung in honor
of a visit of the Viceroy, Dr. von
Dallwitz. The mnyor intervened, calling nttention to nn ordinance requiring thc hells to he rung on such occasions. Tho pastor still refused. The

The pulilic has grown so accustum-
cd to the marvels of the wireless that
only the most extraordinary achievement arouses more than a languid interest. Little hy little the range of
the. mysterious waves is widening until its effectiveness is almost weird
and supernatural.
In a recent test to determine the
reliability and promptness of wire
rial wireless communication between
Northern Alaska and Washington thc
army wireless station at Nome transmitted a long cipher despatch to the
station at North Head where it was
put on a wire connected with the
army and navj departments at Washington. The message required but a
few minutes for transmission from
Nome, tlie most western outpost of
Alaska, to the American seat of government, thousands of miles distant.
The process was then reversed nnd a
long answer was sent back to Nome
in as short a time.

persons travelling hy rail who took
tickets after 7 p.m. on the night of

The marine and naval department?
at Ottawa are engaged on a big pro-
gram of work this summer trying to
make H'ldson May and straits safe for
aav gation, Three wireless stations
ia tbe straits and at the entrance
tothe bay are being located so as
to give a continuous line of communication .'rom Port Nelson and Port
Churchill to the Atlantic. The actual construction of the stations, however, will not be begun until next
year. Tbe charting 'if tbe lluds.u
straits is being done by the steanet
Acadia while other government ves •
sels are taking soundings and map -
I Ing the harbors nf Port Nelson, for

the N'ottuway river. The government steamei Minto which left Halifax yesterday for Hudson Hay, car -

commenced this year on either side ol
tl ntrance to  Port   Nelson,    while
another will be built upon a newly
chartered shoal some miles out in
the hay. The chartering being done
at the mouth of the Nottaway river
is preparatory to the construction of
the proposed railway from the southeast to the National Transcontinental in connection with the alternative
route from Port Nelson across tho
northern end of James Bay and
thence by rail to Montreal. The government plans to build the southern
half of tins line from the National
Transcontinental nnd an nppropria -
tion of 81,000,000 was passed last session for preliminary surveys. The
Olerque syndicate has originally planned to mild the whole line, but ac -
cording to present plans the govern -
I ment Itself will shoulder the cost ol
the portion between Montreal and the
National  Transcontinental.
ThoiHunds of cattle have died in

means to secure a foothold in fighting the ravages of tbis most serious
cattle disease, The exact number ot
cattle which have been lost could not
be  ascertained   by   lhe department.
