of them were killed by force of lie
cesslty, because the Moros used many
of them as shields in the hand lo-
liand lighting.
Major General Wood declared that
many of the women were in male at-
tire and their sex could not be distinguished,    Anotb'-r confusing muse

A story Is told of the late Dr. Peddle,
a Scotch minister, to whom his congregation hod presented n pulpit robe. He
had never worn a robe, and. after acknowledging the gift, be said be would
wait In the vestry flre minutes nfter

"From Romans to Hebrews," answered the old lad} "Well. Janet," said
her minister; "I have read from Ho-

the ancient "dew ponds," the construe  '

these  ponds   wnJ  to  furnish   drinking
water for cattle.    An exposed position,
where   nprlngs   were   absent,   was   se-

was  formed   nnd  covered  over  with
.straw   or   some   other   nonconducting

Uie meantime, if the Edinburgh Review
has correctly conceived the tenchinga
of seismology, the Inhabitants of earth
may console themselves for tlie havoc
wrought through earthquakes by reflecting thnt they demonstrate the vitality of our planet. In that distant

germ up to sentient beings nnd down
again to the hardiest lingering plant

in the Edinburgh Rev lew continues to
develop his line of thought:
"Earthquakes are a sign of planetary

crumble and rivers carry sediment, so
long as the nrenl distribution of loads
fluctuates and strains evoke forces adequate for their catastrophic relief.
"Our globe I.s by Its elasticity kept
habitable. The separation of sea from
dry land is thus and not othcmisn
maintained. The alternations of elevation and subsldance manifest the con

Easter Sunday cannot happen earlier
than March '-"- or later than April 25,
but between these two dates It has a
range of thirty-five days. At the time
of the council of Nice, rj2n A. D., II
was agreed by the representatives present that from that time f irward Easter
should fall on the first Sunday after
the full moon occurring on or next
after March 21, or. In other words, "on
the Srst Sunday after the first full
moon after the sun crosses the line."
Since the above arrangement was
adopted by the great ecclesiastical
council referred to Easter has fallen
on March -2 ami on every date between that and April '-���"'. but It Is only
after long Intervals of time that ll occurs on Its extreme dates. In 1880
Easter fell on April 25, its latest possible date, an event which will not
again occur until the spring of 1043,
The last time Easter fell on its earliest
date was in 1S1S. This will not happen
again until after this century.

lu.. Btring uf fairy labs from Us
Nev. Westminster correspondent to
me effect iba! lacrosse in British Columbia is becoming professionalised,
and  that   the  New   Westminster  lean:'.
is among the leaders in the movement. The reason advanced by ibis
remarkable correspond.jv fur proles-
Btonalism   in lacrosse   is   that    the
Western   boys  are  after  I be  scalps nf
the Eastern champions, ami that the
only way 10 accomplish anything uf
this kind  is to Import  ihe players.
To prove lhe utter absurdity of Ibis
BtateDWBt tt -will be well lo refer in
the   following     list   of   players     who
journeyed east in 1900, when they
won U games straight running from
the eastern crucks. The list includes
the following'. Hub Cheyno, Fred
Lynch. Alex Tutnbull. Harry Latham,
"BarlOW" Qalbraltb, Tummy and Billy
Oiffoib, C. II. and Stanbx Peele.
Wells Gray, Charlie Sin 11. George
Oddy and H. Ryall. of ibis number
all but Oddy, Bnell, Cheyne, and
Stanley Peele played lasi Beason,
and will probably play again this
year. H. Ryall has retired from the
$rwn*o, and is now the secretary of
the club.
Now as to substitutes tor these retiring     players     the     following     men
might   be  mentioned  as  having played at least one season'.   Sandy Cray.
George   Rennie.   lSryson,   and   FVcnie.
This number fills thp vacancies caused by tlie retirement ot the old players,   and   all   of   ihe   substitutes   are
boys    who  have    grown  up    in  the
lown.    In the past    ten  years    these
men have    represented    the lacrosse
clement   in  New  Westminster, and  in
lhe face of these facts the wise correspondent  of the P. I. makes the glaring misstatement that only two years
ago  New 'Westminster  imported  two
eastern experts, under   whose    management  the er.'ire learn was placed.
The lacrosse  players ami   supporters
of  New Westminster    would  like    to
ask this would-be sporting   authority
just   who   those   eastern   experts   are,
and where they came from. Here in
New ���Westminster ihe Statements    of
this particular  writer for the  American   papers,   are  not   taken   seriously,
but it  is annoying tn have such statu-
moots scattered abroad    through tbe
columns of the American dailies when
there is not the least  possible shadow
of  truth    in   tin'    spuriing    writings
emanating from the distorted mind of
the local correspondent.
Nelson is another town whose team
has fallen under the ban of professionalism according In the imaginative bruin of this spuriing correspondent. The Nelson buys have now,
und always have had a particularly
strong team, and b is only necessary
to refer to a few old timers who have
played the game In ihe little mountain city for years, to prove the utter
foolishness of the statements contained in the Seattle paper. Such
men as Joe Thompson, Al. and Charlie Jeffs, Dudley Blackwood. Jack
Fox, Jimmy Hawkins, Barney Archibald, and a host of younger players
who have grown up in The town, are
among the list of boys who have com-
1 oued the Nelson fe'arii for yean.
Some of these players like a few uf
our own have retired, or will do su
this yeai', inn in every Instance they
hive been and will be replaced witli
locai nt.    The  .Nelson  team is  by
far tbe most  sclentitic team In the interior, and  it   is only
