were forced to land at Stokes Bay,
leaving the yacht at tho beach.
One of four burglars who were waiting for the right moment to break in
to three houses in the nelghbrohood
saw the yacht, and decided to "borrow" her. With their booty the four
met on the bc��eh in the small hourc
of the next morning, put. to Rea and

When the real owners of the Snarl
returned to Stokes Bay they found
only a disconcerted watchman, whi

get  afloat  with  their plunder.
Four days later the Snark wa-
found at Hyde, where the claims ol
"ier owners were ridiculed hy another
boatman, who, says Major Stephen'
in telling the story in the "Yacht

"Gentlemen they were! four of 'em

that they had won eighteen prizes
with her this season, and that he had

Opposite Cook's, on the Place de

agreed, and got into a taxicab with
the man. After showing him Eeveral
points of interest the guide proposed
to show him the Apache quarter, and
drove with him to a house in a slum.
He does not know where it was.
The guide took him into a room on
he flret floor furnished with a few
chairs, a table and a cupboard-nothing euse. The $200 guide opened the
cupboard and offered Mr. Huntly a
drink which he accepted.
As soon as he hid emptied his
glass he flel asleep and knows noth-

woke up late iu the afternoon in a

to London, his last visit being on tin
occasion ot King Bdward's funeral,
wlnn he met Colonel Theodore lloopc-
velt and became exceedingly friendly
with the ex-president, whom he impressed as one of the most democratic characters among the European
sovereigns   assembled   here.
He remained as a guest at Bucking
ham palace for several days and with
his brother, King Frederick of Denmark, walked about the streets entirely unattended and unrecognized. Sev-1
' eral times they joined the crowds gathered in front of the palace lo cheer
the new Kngiish king, tlieir Identity

j men with whom they rubbed elbows.

crowned heads of Kurope, King George
of   Greece   and   liis   Danish   brother,
.King Frederick, who was overtaken
by a fatal illness while strolling in
the Btreets of Hamburg alone, were
among the most unostentatious. He
had many friends among diplomats of
tbe various nations and Borne of his
warmest friendships were with un-l

Pete Rvcrett, another Mexican
fighter, was fairly good when things
went his way, but was a quitter from
Qttlttarivllle, One good punch would
make Pete lie down and cry his heart
i ut. Hivers hail never attempted to
keep tho Peoria distilleries working
overtime, and he lias never shown a
yellow streak. In his recent battle
with Knockout Brown he took a thorough drubbing before he was able to
put over the sockdologer that ended
the  mill.
The Mexican's flrat professional
bout was with Max Weber at Los Angeles, early ln 1808, and he won hy a
knockout. Ho first tasted defeat In
October, 1911, wh"n ho was knocked
out by Johnny Kllbane at Vernon.
LaBt year he was defeated by Ad Wcl
gast and Joe Mandot, but whipped
Mandct In a return engagement.
Joe says Mandot is the best man he
has ever mixed with, hut be also has
great respect for the prowess of
Knockout Brown, and considers
Webster a hard man lo beat Rivers
declares that he whipped Wolgast last
July. Joe's father was long a pro

brother was something ot a boxer.

By defeating Burnaby lart evening
at the rink the Y.MC.A. hockey crew
completed their schedule for the season having but one defeat chalked
against them so that a play-off with
tlie Heavers, providing the latter win
their  remaining  two games  will  be
necessary tO decide the ownership of
the Mcltae trophy.
The Hurnaliy-Y game was the lasl
on the program of the double header
and what part of the crowd stayed to
see the finish were well rewarded with
some excellent hockey.
The  surluibanites  took  the lead   in
the first period which they retained
until late in the last 20 minutes,
Iteid for the Y boys coming through
with two goals that placed the game
on Ice for the association men.
The  feature  of  the  game   was  the
playing   of   Yorke   lor   llurnaby,   who
although   but   a   youngster   displayed
remarkable  speed   and  stickhandling.
Moose Milside.
The Fraeer Mills-Moose game war
of a listless character, the lumber-
jacks running up a rcore of eight
while llie Moose obtained two and it
waa easily Been from the outlet which
way the tide was flowing.
The game was a clean one, not a
single man being sent to the bench.
A dispute over the officials delayed
the opining somewhat, the Mills objecting to Eddie McCarthy being the
udge Ot piny. The trouble blew over
by the lacrosse player leaving the
Frenchmen to choose their own official, McCarthy coming back in the
seoond i ncounter when he and Charlie
Tobin handled the game to perfection.

Shrove Tuesday, commonly known
is Pancake Day, as everyone knows
s closely asoclaled with the familiar
edible, but why people Bhould indulge
n the luxury of eating pancakes on ��
specified day in the year Is often not
lulte clear in the minds of them that

which Is a ccntlnuation of an ancient
church custom, was observed in early
times as the last day of feasting be

of Lent, commencing on Ash Wednes
day, the day after.
The Pancake Bill.
On Shrove Tuesday a penitential
confess-on was ordered by the church
and. although the eating of pancakes
rmed a conspicuous part < f the
day's proceedlngB, Iho faithful in pre
Reformation times were summoned

curious customs still survive In connection   with   Shrove  Tuesday. I In

are granted a holiday on Shrove

You should now, while in
health, make definite arrangements regarding the disposition
of your estate at your death.
It ia neither kind nor Rood
judgment to make a relative or
friend of executor.
Both, just like yourself, are
now concerned In building up an
estate for themselves. They
have not the time to give your
estate, and It is doubtful if they
have the necessary experience
There Ib a great deal of difference between the knowledge
necessary to build up an estate
and Ihat necessary to conserve
It, and you require an executor
with the fullest knowledge of
the latter.
Anyway you would not go to
a lawyer for advice If you were
ill. You go to a doctor whose
whole life Ib given up to the
cure of a disease. For the
