a rejection of the ultimatum, for it

New Westminster Lacrosse Team Has
a  Snap With the Vancouver
Saturday's lacrosse match between
the Vancouver and New Westminster
teams resulted In an easy yictorj lor
the home team after an indifferent exhibition of the naiional game. The
New Westminster team played a good
game and easily outclassed the visiting team. From the commencement
of the game it was easily seen that
the Vancouvers had no chance of winning, and it merely resolved itself
into a question of how many goals
would be scored by the New Westminster players. The Vancouver supporters were present in small numbers, and were not enthusiastic even
at the few critical moments when
their learn seemed to have a chance
of making an attempt to score.
Tho score of nine goals to one Indicates pretty well tho respec Ive
meii - of the teams, though i: Is safe
to sa;, ihat if the Vancouvei.-��� ha I
not had a star goalkeeper between
lhe flags 'he score would have tallied
at least three times a- lit-li a- .1 did.
Gibbons was a wonder in goal, a.i.l
i'or everj goal that tallie I again il him
he Btopped several dangerous -
At one stage of the game the shots
a*, the goal averaged about one per
minute, very tew of them going wide
of the poles.
Play started at 3:15 before a good
sized crowd, considering that the result was a foregone conclusion. For
lhe first few minutes passing was
poor, several members of both teams
being offenders in this respect. Three
minutes after the faceoff W. Turnbull
made the first try of the match, but
shot wide. The ball then got to the
other end of the field, and Wilson
made a brave attempt to score, but
Sandy Gray was ready and the ball
went over the net.
The first goal was scored by Wintemute after some quick passing.
Hardly was the ball in play before
Len Turnbull tried to score, but Gibbons saved. Feeney had better luck
a minute later, and goal number two
was tallied against Vancouver. The
game progressed easily, and when
quarter time was called New
Westminster had four goals to their
credit, while Vancouver was still
waiting for the first one to be scored
in their favor.
During the second quarter two more
goals were scored by New Westminster, while Vancouver looked on helplessly. When time was called the
Vancouvers were clos.'ly attacking
home goal. Not one man was sent to
the fence until the third quarter, when
Henry was given three minutes for
rough checking. Wilson joined him
ihere a couple of minutes later. The
Vancouvers forced the game for a
while in ihis quarter, and Godfrey
manage'd to secure a goal after having made severa Ineffectual shots.
���Dodd was slightly hurt in a mixtip,
and the game was stopped; just as
the ball was again in play the gong
sounded.   Score, 7 to 1.
Two more goals were added to New
Westminster's score during the last
quarter, Wintemute and Ronnie each
scoring one. Wintemute anil Springer
started a little scrap behind the Vancouver goal, but were separted before
either had sustained any damage.
Both were retired for the balance of
thi- game by the referee, who also
sent Godfrey and McConaghy to the
fence for using their sticks too freely
on their opponents.

The greatest natural wonder in Java,
if not in tbe entire world, Is the ,;.: I I
celebrated  "Gheko Kamdka Guink
or "Home of the Hot Devils."  know.:
to  the  world  as   the   Island  of   i'i:   .
This geological singularity is  really  a
hike of boiling mini situated at aboul
the center of the plains of Grobogana
and  ls called tin  island   because   tbe
great emerald sea of vegetation which
surrounds it gives it that appearance.
The "island" i.s about two miles in circumference, and is situated at a ili<-
tance   of   almost  exactly   fifty   miles
from   Solo.    Near  the  center  of   this
geological  freak imnmn.se columns of
soft, hot mud may be seen continually
rising and  falling like great timbers
thrust through the boiling substratum
by giant hands and the again quickly
j withdrawn.    Besides  the  phenomenon
: of the boiling mud columns there are
scores of gigantic bubbles of hot slime

lake which constantly belched a pure
stream of cold water, but this has long

now a seething mass of bubbling mud
and slime.
1 How to Put Them on nnd Take Them
Off   Properly.
There is nothing which more completely changes the effect of a pair of
eyeglasses than the habit of crowding
them on the nose witb oue baud. Tbe
best efforts at fitting and adjusting are
all brought to naught by a person who
has acquired that habit.
The proper way to take off glasses
is to take hold of the bridge and lift
off gently without dragging or pulling
out of shape. To take off spectacles
take bold of the right temple witb the
right hand uud lift it off the ear. Then
turn the bead to the right ami the left
temple will fall off easily.
Tbe average wearer of glasses when
be is cleaning them takes bold of the
bridge. The consequence ls that he
gradually works the bridge out of
shape, and every rub be gives tbe leus
gives a twist to the bridge, and In
course of time the bridge or the leus
breaks when he least experts it. There
are probably more glass, s broken iu
this way than any other.
The correct way to clean them is to
take hold of one of the eye pieces
where the glass Is screwed on the outer
edge and clean the lens, and then reverse the glasses, take it by the other
end piece and repeat tbe process on
that leus.
She  Didn't   Sleep   Well.
A woman who lives in an Inland
town, while going to a convention in a
distant city, spent one night of the
journey on hoard a steamboat. It was
the lirst time she had ever traveled hy
water. She reached her journey's end
extremely fatigued. To a friend who
remarked it she replied:
"Yes, I'm tired to death. I don't
know that I care to travel by water
again. I read tbe card in my stateroom about how to put the life preserver on, and I thought I understood
it, but I guess I didn't. Somehow I
couldn't go to sleep with the thing on."

to give it away, and by preference
to someone who would monopolize it.
In taxation, too, there is a very wide
difference in method. There is no
personal property tax and there is
no tax on improvements. There are
two land taxes. Both are levied on
the value of the land, irrespective of
improvements. Holders of small
places get an exemption under the
ordinary hind tax, so that many of
them have practically no tax beyond
the rental of 4 per cent, on the value
of their holdings. The extra land tax
touches no one whose holding is under

park  by  making holes in the ground.;
The   blame   is. placet   on   schoolboys
who go out there and practice, and not. I
ou the baseball club.   These holes are
dangerous   to   lacrosse   players,  three
of them having already sprained their |
ankles  there this season.    Last year
several of the  players  injured theiu-
salves by stepping Into similar holes.
A man was engaged on Saturday to
fill in all these holes before the lacrosse match was called.
The music supplied by the City

by those present. Certain of the players had objected to the presence of

one-sided game as Saturday's exhibition the intermission would have
seemed tediously long without music.

The wonderful force of vibration is
recognised In all its power by few
architects and builders. It would
amusf them if they were told that the
most solidly built nf their walls would
be injured ly the continuous scraping
of a bow across a violin, cf course it
would take years ef playing to loosen
masonry nnd render iron brittle, but
then, are facts on record which show
that such a result has occurred. On a
first class battleship a man may feel
the vibrations ef a violin though he
may not be able t<. hear lhe music. It
is tlie regularity nf tho vibrations
which tells. The player is not affected
by ihem. for he is a flexible object and
can give way to motion.
Every one knows that n squad of
soldiers or any body of marching men
break step In crossing a bridge, no
matter what Its size and strength may
be. for none could withstand the vibrations of this concerted action. Even
tlie tread of a dog may make a bridge
shake because of the regularity of the
vibration, so that on many of the big
Suspension bridges dogs are not allowed unless carried In the arms of
their owners
A good illustration of the power of
vibration can be foil ad In the Sireen-
wich observatory. It stands on the top
of a hill on whose slopes hundriils of
children play on fine evenings. Their
favorite play is to join hands nt the
top nnd slash headlong to the bottom,
where they fall in a heap. This starts
the vibration of the hill to such.an extent that Uie scientists of the observatory are unable to carry on their observations, whieh depend upon the motionless Btate nf 11 tray ef mercury.
The solid hill is in such n stntejof tremor that tlie vibrations continue till
long past midnight, when the tfhildren
who have caused it have been] asleep
for hours.
A slill more wonderful illustration of
vibration is in the human throat. Sixty vibrations per second is the least
number by means of which a sound
can be produced. This Is a sound never used in speaking, but ls found In
men's voices in an extremely low register. Tlie highest sound produced by
tlie human voice���that ls, E in altissimo
���is caused by 1,024 vibrations per ssx;-
ond. This, too. is exceptional, being
only obtainable in the highly cultivated
female or boy voices.
It is simply the vocal chords which
vibrate, not the throat. In the lower
notes the whole length and thickness
of the vocal chords are used, the thin
edges being employed for the highest
ones. Thus in speaking for a minute
or two there is sufficient vibration en-
gs'iidered in the throat, were its walls
of a solid nature instead of soft and
flexible, to shatter and destroy it. Every minute we speak the vocal chords
vibrate from 20.000 to 40.000 times.���

Women'*   Love   of   I'srly   Men.
The illustrious men In history who
were distinguished as much for the
fascination which tbey exercised over
the fair sex as for their talents and
ability were, as a rule, plain and Insignificant in appearance. Julius Caesar was a very ill favored man, and
yet when n mere stripling, before his
fume in Home, girls of his own age
sighed for him and mature women
longed for his love. Among tlie men of
later times who were renowned in like
manner were Sir Philip Sidney, plain
almost to ugliness; Paul Scarron, the
comic poet, a cripple: Voltaire, unmistakably ugly, and Rousseau, whose
manners were awkward as his face
was plain, while John Wilkes, who had
the power in subjugate any woman
who spoke to him for even five minutes, was admitted by liis own showing to be the ugliest man in England
in his time.

That a launch Is a matter of mathematics, as well a- of great skill and
labor, Is --hown by the tact that the
man of science who has tin- matter in

or if it shouhl taue an .iniSs"ual length
of time to knock out the keel blocks,
or If any one of half a dozen things
should cause serious delay, the scien-
title man knows just bow long be can
wait and Just how far the limit of
safety extends.
There is always one supreme moment in a launch, and it is at a time
that escapes the average spectator. It
is when lhe vessel gets fairly well into
tbe water. This is when au important
factor known as the "moment of buoyancy" comes Into play. If you can
imagine a vessel sliding down an Incline Without any waler into whicb to
drop, you can see that the vessel would
tip down Buddei . al the end which
has lefl the waj - ind would rise al the
end -iill on the i'i- hue. But really In
successful launches the stern ol
vessel is gradually lifted up by the
water, and this throws the weighl
. ..n that pai l of the ship still resl
lng  on   the  ways.    The   force ol
water ia c Ml"'1 the "momei i of buoy

ship   to  drop   i..  the   bottom  of  the
stream    is   i   lied    the    "moment

very much greater, tor If it were it
would throw too much weight forward
ou the pari of tbe ship still on the
ways and mighl break them down or
injur., the plates or keel of the ship.
When tii" English battleship Ramillies
was launched, this did really happen,
aud so great was the strain near tbe
bow that parts of the cradle were actually pushed right into the hottom of
tbe vessel. It is this danger of disaster
that causes the scientific launcher to
make the most careful calculations as
to the conditions surrounding tbe ship
at every foot of her journey Into the

No backer ls deterred by the knowledge that the odds offered are mathematically unfair. His faith In the correctness of bis judgment is a setoff
against tbe restriction of his winnings.
Argument never prevented a man
from risking a sovereign on a "good
thing." Some twenty years ago I
wrote in a journal Mow defunct an
elaborate refutation of the notion that
money can be made by systematic
gambling. I gave an analysis of every
knowu ".system" and proved to tbe
satisfaetion of every mathematically
trained intellect that systems were absurd. Tbe paper���rather a serious organ���was in consequence bought largely by betting people, and hundreds
tested the systems I had exposed. A
compositor in the offce of the paper
actunlly made some $350 or $400 by
following one of the systems and gave

Tb onlj cure for gambling is a persistent run of ill luck, resulting In entire lo88 of capital. Even ihen the
doctrine of chances suggests that "the

Throwing  Mud.
Unless words without meaning are
used a person's vocabulary must be
bounded by his knowledge. Many
years ago I was teaching a class of
poor children in the school connected
with the Church of St. Paul's, Covent
Garden. One day I exhibited a picture
of a bayfleld with men carting hay.
I asked the children what tlie men
were throwing up into the cart. Tbey
answered, without a moment's hesitation, "Mud!" It then occurred to me
for the first time that these children
bad never seen a hayfleld or the carting of hay, but the scavenger's cart,
carting mud, they were quite familiar
with, aud hence they spoke within their
knowledge.���Loudon Notes and Queries.
The Word "Tar,"
Why is the word "tar" a synonym
for "sailor?" Some dictionaries say
that the allusion ls to the seaman's
tarry bauds and clothes -the "savour
of tar" of Stephano's song in "The
Tempest." liurus uses "tiirrylireeks"
as equivalent to "sailor." But it is regarded as much more probable that
"tar" is short for "tarpaulin," since
Clarendon and other writers colloquially use "tarpaulin" to signify a seaman.
Of course, this ultimately gets hack to
tar. a tarpaulin being u tarred "palling." or covering (the same word as
What   Happena  When   Two   or More
Peera Want to Speak at Once.
There ia no rule against a dozen
I peers, or the entire peerage for that
matter, rising and addressing the lord
! chancellor at the same time. The lord
chancellor has no power to select the
peer who shall speak. A lord chancellor's leg may be pulled, we imagine,
but his eye can never be caught. For
all he can do two p��*srs wishing to address the house and rrfuslng to give
way one to the other could stay on
their feet until one of tu<>ui dropped
from exhaustion.
This is no exaggeration. Within living memory two peers engaged in an
', adveuture whieh at first threatened to
develop into a tiring down contest after the manner of Goldsmith's dancers.
It happened in 1884 ou a warm July
day and was very entertaining while
i it lasted.
The  two  were  Earl  Granville and
Lord   Cairns.     Both   rose   simultane-
! ously  to speak.   The two peers stood
: fucing  each  other  at  tbe table,   uud
I each tried to speak, while their partl-
I suns   kept  shouting   "Granville!"   and
I "Cairns!" in an aristocratic manner,   it
I must have sounded a little like a cup
tie.  Lorsl Selhorne sat on the woolsack
helpless.   The scene might have lasted
until   either   Enrl   Granville   cr   Lord
Cairns   had   fallen   fainting   had  not
Lord    Beauchamp    earned    immortal
fame hy  creating a  precedent  in the
house of lords.   He moved, in a tone of
auger, that Lord Cairns be heard, and
Lord Cork, in a similar tone,  moved
that Lord Granville be heard.
A vote was taken, and Lord Granville won by a majority of one in a
house of fifty-three excited peers. So
if lhe lord chancellor nt any time finds
himself confronted by two noble but
obstinate orators there is a precedent
to fall back upon which may he found
useful.���London News.

Death Rather Than Arrest.
Paterson. X. J., duly 15.���To avoid
the disgrace of arrest on the charge
of defalcation, Albert O'Brien, tax collector of the Borough of Toiowa, shot
himself last night while officers were
approaching his house to apprehend
The    Hlarher   Their   Carte   the    Mor��

"In India,'' Writes Sidney Low, "religion, with what seems a malign ingenuity, has occupied itself in heaping
complications round the two essential
functions of eating and marrying. The
Hindoo cannot take his food without
elaborate precautions against pollution,
and the higher IN caste is the mere
burdensome these rules are. There are
some inferior eiistes in the south wh I
are  not   supposed   to   approach   even
within   speaking  distance  of   the  elect.
A regular table has been drawn up of
what may he called the degrees of pollution, so that, while some of these low
persons can pollute a man of a higher
caste only hy actually touching him,
it N held that blacksmiths, masons, j
Carpenters nnd leather workers can
pollute at a distance of twenty-four '_
feet, toddy drawers at thirty-six feet
and cultivators at forty-eight feet,
while the pariahs, who eat beef, have
a pollution range of no less than twenty-one yards and twelve inches.
"The more sacred a Hindoo is the
more he is worried by his code of tnhle
etiquette. The very high caste Brahman ought to strip off all his clothes
and, if possible, sit on the floor when
he consumes his footl. He should not
ent anything whicli has been touched
by an inferior or a non-Hindoo or
drink water out of any vessel similarly
defiled. As the scale sleseends the restrictions relax until at last we get
down to the man of no standing what-
ever, the sweeper, who is so wanting
lu retinement that he can openly stroke
a puppy dog. and Anally we reach lbe
outcast who can eat any kind of ins-at
whenever be can get it and will even
drink out of a cup whicb has touehsnl
other lips.
"Luckily for the modern Hindoo
these burdensome prohibitions and in-
junctions are subject to certain con-
venlent legal fictions. Sweet meats, it
appears, are not food and may be taken by anybody anywhere. Not long
ago the Brahman pundits nt Benares
decided thnt soda water is uot water
within the meaning of the act. so to
spealc. and thnt ice does not count."���

In addressing a newly married couple
at a weslding reception it is usual to
congratulate tbe groom and to wish
the bride great happiness.
It is not looked upon as good form
to announce a meal by tbe ringing of

a railroad station, but is now seldom
used in private houses.

elegance, comfort, safety und speed
of this vessel require only to be proved
to meet the approbation of the public,

everything in his power to merit public

The forage grass known to the farm
ers of tbe United States ns timothy is
so called because first introduced and
extensively cultivated in this country
by one Timothy Hanson, a farmer of
Maryland. This species of grass is
well known lu England and all over
western continental Europe, where it
is grown extensively by most farmers
between the Mediterranean and tin-
North sens. The botanical name of this
grass is I'hleum pratense. Timothy is
known in tlie Britisli isles as cut's tall
grass nnd iii several of our eastern
states as herd, or herd's, grass, it was
grown in large quantities in Marylan '

of it had ever been seen in England,
