Bloodhounds on Trail
of Kidnapped Child
Tacoma, July 19.���A large force of l
men is sl ill In .search of the little
Brittain boy who disappeared from
Toll Gale, Walla. Walla county. Evidence accumulates to show that instead of being devoured hy a cougar,
���he chihl was kidnaped by a sheep
herder.
With   the   aid   of   bloodhounds   his
tracks  have  been   found   at   intervals
for a long distance through the brush
and it is evident  he has been carried j
R  part  of the way.
For  a   lime  il   was  thought   Harry
Draper  and  his  bloodhounds  had  lo-j
cated the boy on the burned district
about four and one-half miles east
of Toll Gate, and a hundred men were
seen over the mountain to be at every
foot. The trail was lost, and. darkness coming on, search had to be abandoned for the night.
The bloodhounds were put on the
trail at daybreak this morning, and
the dogs could he heard baying in
the mountains three miles away.
Many of the mountaineers believe he
lias simply wandered away into the
mountains and perished of cold and
hunger, and scout the kidnaping theory.

The boom of logs belonging to J. S.
Emerson, and lying'at Victoria, which
the government threatened to seize
because of alleged infraction of the
timber manufacture act, is now safely
on the American side of the line. The
officials of the lands and works department ordered to make the seizure
were too late in getting to work, as
the logs had been shipped from Victoria two or three hours before they
were ready to act.
"The boom, which contained about
five hundred thousand feet of logs,
waa towed out of the harbor before
the governmenl f< rces appeared I ���

the boom, and they did so. Several

Now the governmi n can do nothing,

of a place where stock are pastured
foi at least nine months every year
and yet a crop of 2!/2 (tons of timothy
or uVs of clover is raised in the short
interval. I've never seen anything
like it. T. W. Paterson, M. P. P..
for instance, took his stock off on
May 28, and today has a crop of hay
averaging at least two and a half
tons.
"This record even would be beaten
by Westham and Crescent islands.
The fertility of the soil is simply
wonderful. If the weather continues
favorable they will thresh out at least
100 tons of oats to the acre. It's a
fine country; I'd just as soon have 150
acres there as own a bank. They
can grow everything. Mangolds and
turnips are so prolific that I w iuld
not venture to give the figures; people would think I'm romancing. The

salmon have not begun to run well
yet, but on Sunday a large number
of boats went out and there was i.ie

"I saw quite a number of young
pheasants. They seem to be spreading rapidly. On Westham island I
flushed a covey of twelve young birds
in a clover patch, and shortly afterwards came across three or four
cocks, so tame that they took little

Every ounce cf BOVRIL is prepared under the most hygienic conditbns
as required by the laws of Great Britain.
In the preparation of BOVRIL absolutely nothing but the choicest lean
beef is used, our main source of supply being the Argentine Republic, where
cattle are so plentiful and the consuming population so small that the b<2st parte
of the beef can be obtained by us at a very reasonable cost.
BOVRIL is a specialty, not merely a bye-product
of a packing house like many meat extracts.

BEHIND THE SCENES,
lu former issues. The Daily News
has endeavored to give its readers as
complete a view a.s possible of lhe
difficulties surrounding the imperial
Education Hill, ami of the causes of
those difficulties. This view was from
the out.-ide. Today we present some
statements from a well informed London paper, which take us behind the
scenes a little.   Tu lay down the prln-

man.    He  helped  no  institution.    To
without any regard for harmony or
contrast.
Even as late as the middle of the
eighteenth century a dandy would
dress himself in a vivid green coat, a
waistcoat of scarlet, yellow breeches
and blue stockings.

founded is one thing; to formulate
the provisions in detail by which that
principle shall be carried out in practice is another pair of shoes entirely,
and it was here that Mr. Birrell's difficulties lay in wait for him. These
details he left to the permanent officials of the department. "Xow as to
permanent officials, we are not going
to cast any slur on their honesty or
on their capacity. But everyone
knows very well that they have served
wdth little interval, and for many
years a Tory government. They mean
to be perfectly upright, but they are
not safe advisers. Mr. Birrell chose
to depend upon them, and the result
was a hill admirable in its intentions,
but open at every point to criticism."
Again, Mr. Birrell was without efficient assistance in the House. His
cabinet colleagues had their hands
full with their own departmental
work, and as for his tinder-secretary,
who should have been a tower of
strength to a Minister with such a
measure as the education bill on his
hands, he appears to have been more
hindrance than help. Mr. Birrell is
blamed for accepting the position of
Minister of Education without a
guarantee that his under-secret ary
would be up to the mark. "Most unluckily .Mr. Thomas Lough, a man
with no qualification for the position,
was landed on Mr. Birrell. We have
oeeu told on good authority, though
we cannot guarantee our information,
that Mr. Lough, who, it seems, once
took a prominent pari in the Irish
controversy, was meant for Sir Horace Plunkett's place. When Mr.
Bryce, the Chief Secretary for Ireland,
took the reins in his hand, he informed the Prime Minister that. Sir
Horace Plunkett must continue. It
was necessary to find some place for
Mr. Lough, so Mr. Birrell was presented with him. The result, has been
deplorable, even worse than might.
have been thought at lirsi. Mr. Lough,
SO far as we know, never took the
smallest Interest iu the education controversy, He is regarded by Liberals
with positive terror, and Mr. Birrell
hardly dares to leave the House of
Commons during the discussions. He
lives in well Justified fear of Mr.
Lough's indiscretions."
A TREMENDOUS  INTJICTMENT.
We have had recently a number of
exposure.-, of the ways of high
finance, and of the consequences, upon
those who are engaged must deepl}
in it. of the strenuous pursuit of
wealth. The keen competition nf
modern days has made life for most
people a strenuous thing, and lhe wear
and worry of the struggle breed in
the mind the notion that the possession of wealth is the most desirable
of all things lhe world has to offer.
The effeel which a too exclusive devotion io dollar-getting may have upon
the dollar-chaser himself; the effect
which the possession of the dollars
may have upon the untrained and unrestrained heir into whose hands they
descend, are forgotten. Press and
pulpit in the United States arc using
the Thaw-White murder as a text
from which to enlarge upon these
points, and Uie Toronto Globe has a
sort of summary of the lessons, which
is a tremendous Indictment of the life
which looks only to the material and
the sensual.
"The case  of  Stanford  White,  Hie
present system of Sunday labor in
France. It has passed the Senate and
has been sent to tlie President for
final sanction. It is not based on
recognition of the religious character
of Sunday, but upon the necessity of
preserving the day of rest, and the
protection of the rights of those who
desire to use it for worship or for
rest or for any other purpose that
does not transgress the rights of their
neighbors.
THE  FLAGEOLET.
The "silly season" is here, and contributions to the literature appropriate to the time are in order. Victoria
borrows an old country yarn about
eggs a hundred years old; and Chilliwack comes to the front wdth a real
live four-legged chicken.    Xext!
It   Has   Always   Dren   She   Love   Flute
of   the   Apache   Indian.
The flageolet is of peculiar interest
to Americans, as from time immemorial it has been the medium through
whieh the Indian youth courted their
sweethearts at a distance when they
were so unfortunate as to be unable
to gain a personal audience.
The love or courting date of the Apache is made of a round stick of cedar
about twenty-four iuches long, split
lengthwise and hollowed to form an air
chamber. A hole is made on each shle
of this diaphragm aud a shallow air
passage cut from one hole to the other.
Above it a cap of wood is placed for
the purpose of covering tbe upper hole
and the air channel. The lip is made
of a thin sheet of lead and the whole
bound together with a slender thong.
In the tube part or body of the instrument are placed six finger boles, a
condition that points unmistakably to

THE BIRD OF DEATH.
It  la the  Only  Venomou* Member of
the Feathered Tribe.
Among all the thousands of feathered
creatures classified by the trained ornithologists but one, the rpir n'doob.'
or "bird of death," is known to be venomous. This ijueer and deadly species
of the winged and feathered tribe is a
native of the island of Papua, or New
Guinea. The bird is described as being about the size of a common tame
pigeon, of gray plumage and a tail of
extraordinary length, ending in a tip
of brilliant scarlet reii. It is a marsh
bird and is found to inhabit only the
immense stagnant pools adjoining the
lakes of the interior of the island. The
rpir has a honked beak as sharp as a
cock's spur and hollow. The venom

When the bird sets its beak in the

Japan's Pipe Ds li.
There is a bell ia Tokyo, .Japan,
which is made from tobacco pipes,
Bo says the legend Inscribed around
the outside In four languages, English,
French, German and Japanese.
The English vers: in runs as follows;
"This bell, en it In the city of T ikyo,
I Japan, Dec. 10, 1892, by Tsudn Sen, Is
made from t! \ metal of tobacco pipes
of more  the .  a  thousand  men, once
; slaves, now free men."
The story Is that In 1S92 it woman
missionary from America waged war
<iii tobacco smoking and persuaded
over a thousand men to forswear the
habit. They therefore had no further
use for their metal pipes, which were
melted down and cast in the form of
a bell, The metal resembles bronze,
and the bell has a pleasant musical
ring.

CurioiiN   Weill)   Siiperntltlon.
Small glasslike, irregular circlets of
some crystallized mineral are occasionally found In the mountains of Wales,
ami concerning these the Welsh people
have some curious superstitions. S ime
believe that they are formed In the
body of a snake as soon as be reaches
the age of 100 years, while others ds>-
clare that they are formod "of froth
and venom" when two large male
snaki's meet. Camden, the great English historian and antiquarian, says:
"It is usual for snakes to approach on
St John's eve and by joining heads together and hissing to form a kind of
bubble, which passes through the snake
and immediately hardens till it resembles a glass ring. Whoever finds one
of these rings will ever after prosper."

WOMEN  HOTEL CLERKS.       HOW  BEAST MEN ARE  MADE.
Ion   Thorn-   In   Europe   Impressed   tt
Wonsu   Trs&vels&r.
In most Europsjan hotels'ln the smaller plnci s the \ isiter Is met at tbe desk
by a woman instead pf by the perfunctory clerk so famll ar to Americans at
bome, l think this is because a v- o-
lnau can lie more successful In the art
of common, everyday robbery. One
doesn't like t i argue about the prices
with a sweet, smiling little lady, who
ses'ins to be exerting herself to an extreme degree to secure one's comf >rt
and happiness, but if one happens to
be making Short  Stops here and there ;t
ls wise to put away suavity for the
time being t i the extent tit least of an
occasional mild protestation.
When madaine smiles benignly and
tells you that the room you have chosen,
with everything included, will be 20
francs a day it is well to remember
that "everything Includes!" doesn't Include everything by any moans. There-
are a hundred and one little "extras,"
like ten. after dinner coffee, coffee and
rolls in your room iu the morning and
such like luxuries, to say nothing of
Service, which must be paid fsrr first
hand if it is to bc enjoyed at all. So
at 20 francs maslame is probably taking chances against a protest and will
be enormously pleased with herself if
none is forthcoming. It is fhe same all
up and down the scale of pries's, but I
suppose those who can afford lo go up
thi1 scale never care particularly.���
EH'anor Franklin in Leslie's Weekly.
SOURCE OF SHELLAC.
The Kass India  Insects Thai Produce
flu-  Resinous Substance.
India is tiie home of the loccus lac-
ca, the Insects that produce tlie resinous substance known ns shellac. The
females puncture the twigs of several
different kind-; of trees, among the I
the bo. the bihar nnd the buts a. an l the
twigs i ecome ia ���; usti d with a hard,
nearly transparent, reddish, resinous
subst.-nie" thai servos lhe double pur
pose of protecting the eggs and Anally
furnishing f    ���  for t! ������ ;  mng insect';.
The incrustcd i - igs are broken fr ini
tbe trees before the young 'insects es
cape ."ti 1 are thoroughly dried in tbe
sun. These dried twigs are called
"stick-lac," and from them shellac and
a dye analogous to cochineal are pre
pared. "Seed-lac" is the resinous con
civtion separated from ihe twigs,
coarsely pounded and triturated with
water in a mortar, by which nearly all
of the coloring matter is removed.
To prepare shellac the seed-lac Is put
into oblong cotton cloth bags and
warmed over a charcoal fire. When the
rosin begins lo melt the bags ate twisted, ami tlie pure, clear rosin ls allowed
to flow over fig wood planks or the
smooth stems of the banyan tree nnd
cools in the thin plates or shells which
constitute shellac.
Ture sheilas- is very valuable. It is
much harder than colophony and is
easily soluble in alcohol.
FIGHTING  FISH.
Peculiar   Animals   Thnt    Arc   Fonrui
Sinlj-  In  Siamese  Waters.
A   favorite   recreation   in   Siam   is
watching the lighting flsh, a species of
fish found in tlie waters of no other
country. The fish cannot live in unity,
and if two are placed in a bowl they
will instantly engage in a struggle "to
the death."
It is no unusual thing to see iu the
streets of Siam crowds of natives chattering and gesticulating around a bowl
containing a number of these fish,
which thi . 1 ef mi ia the same way as
more cl\ 'zed people do on race horses.
Intense excitement reigns among th"
natives as they watch the fish fighting
within the bowl.
Thess- peculiarly quarrelsome fish sire
very similar to the common pike in appearance, wiih the exception (hat they
are not in the possession of trills. Their
fins, too. are remarkably sharp, and
these they use with terrible effect upon
one another. Blood oozes from their
sides, and yet they persist in lighting
until perhaps only two are left alive,
nnd then th- survivors turn on one another until only one is left out of perhaps ti dozen placed in the tub.
Although the fighting fish are exceptionally goo-l t it. the majority of
natives esteem them only for their
fighting propensities, which affords
them amusement and excitement every
day.
London's  Last  Public  Hanirlna;,
Tlie grewsome spectacle of a public
execution in England is happily a thing
of the past. The scaffold used to be
erected in the roadway outside the
prison, and crowds would assemble to
witness the sight, the last time a man
wns hanged in public being when Michael Barrett suffered the extreme penalty in May, ISOS, in Old Bailey, outside Newgate prison, for exploding a
cask of gunpowder under the walls of
Olerkenwell prison to relsiase the Fenian prisoners Burke and Casey, a mad
act that killed several and Injured still
more.���London Graphic.

The   Bldeona nml  Cruel  Practice of

Illegal.
"A kidnaped child is flayed alive, bit

ls grafted on him. This takes a year.
At the year's end the poor creature is
shaggy, like a bear, from head to foot.
"The child's vocal chords ars- destroyed witb charcoal in an unspeakably
cruel way. He can never speak then-
after. He can only growl and moan
like a beast.
"He is imprisoned in a perfectly Mack
bole until every vestige of reason leaves
him. Nine months is usually a sufficient confinement to accomplish this.
"Finally, speech! iss, shaggy. lunatic,
the victim is sold to a traveling showman and Is exhibited throughout China
as a genuine wild man or beast man. I

HOG   MONEY.
Origin    of    the    Carious    OIil    Brass
loins of  Bermuda.
"Hog money" is the name by which
the brass money which began to be
struck iu Bermuda in 1050 came to be
known, (in one fac of it was a hog,
on tia- other a ship of that period.
These eld c ilns are .. ry rare and highly iei' I'd by coll
'I'he bisto ���/ of this device is curl 11 -
and interesting. A S; mish

way to < 'tt' i ��iiii a i argo of ho -, was
wrecked there. This -v, ������ in 1515. Later in tbe s. ne een ', wh in the I
lish discovered this land, tbey found a
country Inhabited by ho rs.
It is also interesting to note that the
English discovered it i.i the same way
as the Spauiards, An English ship
was wrecked there. Is it any wo ler
that the treacherous coast gol m
Spanish and English alike the nan ��� of
Devil's Land? Yer it is one of the
most beautiful coasts In the world, and
it has been claimed that in brilliancy
Mediterranean effects are not at all
equal to those of Bermuda.
Bermuda.is said to be the Island of
Shakespeare's "Tempest" The strange
noises which mariners beard coming
from this island, and which they did
not then know were produced by hogs,
caused them to say that it was haunted and to report weird things of It.���

Beautified utility is never too costly.
Over au i over again the cost benefits
of public improvements have been
proved, defined, established, it Is true
of public betterments of a sanitary
character; it is true of public betterments that look to commi rcial advancement; it is true of public betterments that have primarily an art value, 'ilie practical and the ornamental
betterment are alike in this���that money wisely expended for good purposes

vls: s. The work undertaken must be

purpose, Money expended for a worthless filtration plant, for example, is
money worse than wasted. Money
spent for bad art is not always considered as so completely lost as money
that might be wasted for worthless
sanitary apparatus. The statue causes
no 111 health and may be avoided by
passing down the next street, while an
Impure water supply brings death and

At the coronation of Charles I., the
kingdoms of England and Scotland
having bei n united during the reign of
his father, considerable friction took
place with regard to the order of pre-

The Shepherd's Crook.
Although most people have seen a
shepherd's crook, many do not know
the use of it. Some people think that
ull the shepherd carries it for is to use
It as a walking stick when be tramps
to and from the fold. But the crooked
end Itself serves a purpose. It enables
i. shepherd to catch refractory sheep.
If a sheep shows signs of running
fcway the crooked end has only to be
placed round his leg, and he ls a captive.���London Standard.

Nowhere outside of the pages of fiction would we expeel Buch an Incident
us the following from the per I
story of the Russian revolutionist Narodny. Narodny had jusl lumped from
a window to escape the police. "When
I scramiileii to my feet 1 disco red
myself iu Uie yard and among half a
dozen soldiers. I was without overcoat and hat a very suspicious Qgure
���aud, having neither, I could not escape even could I get by the soldiers
who surrounded nie," he said.
"I jerked a card from uiy pocket���to
this day I do not know what it was
snd handed it to oue of the soldiers.
'Here ls my card,' I said rapidly. 'I
am a member of the secret police. One
of Uiese revolutionists is tryiug to escape. I am after him. Quick! Give
me your coat aud hat"
"He automatically obeyed. I slipped
on his coat and hat and to all appearances was a soldier of the czar. I
walked past the guards*l gate of the
yard, out Into the street Before me
were thousands of soldiers. I saw my
friends being brought down from the
hall ami put into the black vans, about
whicb stood guards of Cossacks. I
marched through my friends (all of

caped with me) with the air of a soldier s��n a very important message and

BARBER  SURGEONS.
When     tlie    Kuzor    nnd    tlu-    Scalpel
Were  Linked   In   S>nt>  Trade.
More th..:i 100 years old Is the Royal
College of Surgeons, Edinburgh. At
the time II was founded the surgeons
and barbers of the city were unite*1
as oue of the fourteen Incorporated
trades of Edinburgh. On July 1, 1505,
tbey received their charter from the
town council. The charter of the barber surgeons was confirmed by James
IV., an early Stuart king of great enlightenment and accomplishment, who
took inus'li interest in the progress of '
tbe surgeons on account of tbe needs
of bis army in time of wa*.
In tlie charter leave was given to the
Incorporation to control the medical
education of the city, such as it was
ln those days; of bloodletting, to have
the sole right of practice aud to put
down quacks, They were to get every
year the body of a criminal who had
been executed to practice anatomy on,
and tbey promised ln return to do "suffrage for his soul." Of the first 158
members of the Incorporation six were
surgeons to the kings of Scotland.
As society Improved and medical science developed the gulf between tbe
Burgeons and barbers widened, aud in
1772, as the result of a process In tbe
court of session, the connection was
finally terminated. The deacon, or
president, of the incorporation of surgeons was for more than 320 years a
member of the town council of Edinburgh, ex officio, and several of the
deacons were members of the Scottish
parliament.
Ilet-n-cen   n   Ilnwk   und
Black  Dog Mink.
Silent as an owl In the bla<:fc of night,
the bawl, glided low on whist wings
across the little open space cleared by
the fallen maple, paused an almosl iiu-
perceptible instant above die unilsten-
Ing Bqulrrel, and then, wings closed,
dropped upon bim with unerring talons.
But for some Btrange reason tbe harrier seemed powerless to I.ear away
his kill; while his angry, frightened
screams drowned out the dying squeak
of the squirrel, be strove with great
rattling wing strokes to get purchase
ou the air, but could not. Over and
over again he struck downward with
his beak, apparently at the squirrel,
though of this, because of the blur of
his whipping wings, 1 could not be
sure. In a moment he half toppled
forward, and then, like a huge broken
winged partridge, he flopped about
among the tangled colls of roots, uttering meanwhile shrill screech on screech
that seemed fairly to lacerate his
throat. In but little more than it
takes to tell it a dozen kingbirds bad
gathered, and were buzzing round the
struggling barrier like gadilies round a
horse, adding their spiteful cries to llis
harsh din; now a crow appeared out
of nowhere and searched deep In his
throat for ids hoarest cry; blue jays
flashed across the clearing and bach
again In a frenzy of clamorous excite
ment; a swarm of chattering blackbirds rushed into the tree above ms
till its branches sagged and creaked
like those of a laboring tree overweighted with fruit���all in an Instant
bedlam was let loose round that old
wind wrecked maple.
Under cover of the uproar I crept
nearer and saw that a big black dog
mink, his buUdOg jaws clamped on
the upper leg of the harrier, was grim
ly fighting to pull him down from behind, while the harrier, with the speed
of terror and bate, sought desperately
to reach his assailant, with his beak.
It looked as if the mink must win, for
the harrier was perceptibly weakening
iu his vain counter attack; but a sudden lift with the harrier's long wings
half tore the mink from his bold and
swung him for one brief moment within distance of that rending beak.
Rip; a big red gash gaped open on thc
mink's writhing flank, and be let go
and tumbled back among the roots.
Up leaped the hawk, his pearly white
breast streaked and blotched with
blood from his wounded leg. Like
magic the cries of all but the kingbirds were hushed, while. Still screaming with rage and hurt, the bawl; rose
heavily skyward and marked his course
athwart the wind for the shelter of the
woods.���Harold S. Demlng In Harper's
Magazine.
February   Legends.
Why February has twenty-eight days
ia explained in the legends of the past.
One is of an old woman, who, tending
her flock, ridiculed the mouth of February because he had dealt so leniently witb her aud her sheep. Then Febru- |
ary felt insulted and made leap year
and borrowed a cold day from March j
and froze her and her flock.  There is a \
Norman   legend   which   makes   it  out
that February had originally as many
days as ihc other mouths, but February was a confirmed gambler and lost
at domino a day both to January ami
to March.   Strange to say, there is an j
old story of Egypt, wherein the god of
February plays forfeits with tbe moon
antl loses certain days.
Persian  Dramatics.
A traveler, speaking of some of the
oddities of Persian customs when viewed with occidental eyes, said.:
"Depending as we do upon Illusion
and se.nie effects in our theaters, the
presentation of a Persian piny by native performers strikes the westerner
as little short of ridiculous, the extreme
solemnity of all concerned making the
appeal to hilarity all the stronger. In
one of their favorite miracle plays the
prophet is supposed to ascend to heaven, aud this dramatic incident Is accomplished by the very simple expedient of drawing him up from the stage
and out of .sight with a block antl
tackle. The 'tackle is attached to hla
belt by an attendant In plain view of
the audience. So strong, however, is
the Imaginative power in Uie oriental
that many of the onlookers will be ob'
Berved weeping openly." ��� Harper's
Weekly.
Not Wholly  Ignorant.
Au applicant for a position In the j
public works department in a certain
city was undergoing a civil service ex- I
amimition. With a view to testing his ���
knowledge of history the examining !
officer asked him what he knew of the i
Punic wars.
"The name sounds familiar," said the
applicant, "but I can't just remember
when it was or where it happened."
"Don't you know anything about
Sciplo?"
"No, sir."
"Surely you have heard about Hannibal'.-"
"Oh, yes. I know all aboul Hannibal.
That's where Mark Twain used to
live."
The Gardener.
It is at once the joy and the despair
of a gardener that his work is nevei
done. His materials are growing,
changing, ever varying things. This Is
an endless delight to a man who lives
with liis Tardea and watches his pinna
grow up. When be makes a ��� .irden foi
another it is a different matter. Then,
after spending his best, thought and
skill, the garden must be turned over
into the hands of the Philistine, who
may, doubtless will, spoil his color effects, make gaudy what before was
rich, Introduce tawdry display where
before was a sensitive delicacy. These
are the things that try men's souls and
will continue to try them until theowm
ers of large places actpulre some degree of sympathy with and understanding of art.���Century.

Child's View of \rt.
A lover of ran' old china had n collection that was the envy of her visitors. One day a little girl came with
her mother for a call, and. being seated in the living room, wonderlngly
eyed the array or antique dishes. The
hostess was much pleased at the child's
evident admiration of her treasures aud
said. "Well, my dear, what do you

Up, and pity was in her eyes as she

and clean throughout, while the pass-
bag was swift and sure. The teams
were evenly matched, and the ints resl
was kept up right until the whistle
blew announcing the end of the game.
The Reginas were rather strongei
than their opponents, having better
combination work. During the first
quarter, the Reginas scored two goals,
while their opponents scored just one.
The second quarter saw the figures
reversed, and the game wtis a tie at
half time. During lhe third and fourth
quarters, the Reginas scored one goal
during each period, while lhe West
Ktiiieis were r.m.i.ie to add to their
score. The victory of the Reginas
was greeted with cheers by the suits, who had thoroughly enjoyed
the match. George Rennle was on the
Beld, and handed out decisions in an
