Lacrosse Situation at Complete Deadlock���Royal City Men
Walk Out of B.CL. A. Meeting When Preposterous
Change of Schedule is Carried���Vancouver Papers Were
Notified of Last Saturday's Decision.
Itefiising to accept the dictates of
the Vancouver club any further, the
executive of the Westminster Lacrosse
club made a dramatic exit from a
meeting of the 0. C L. A. held in
Vancouver last evening. It was expected that a little fireworks would be
let oft" at the meeting, but very littlo
of that happened for the simple reason that the Westminster delegates
were only at the meeting a matter of
fifteen minutes.
The    climax    came    when    Lionel j a fratxl��^_

been handed vn the pasl few weeks by
the Vaucouver press."
Royal City United.
The otlier delegates all stated they
would be ashamed to come back to
the Koyal City if they had accepted
such a proposition as that last evening. Delegate Nels Nelson adding
"This has any political meeting that
has ever happened anywhere beat to
Yorke moved that the game scheduled
on July 27 in this city be held over
to September 14, and the game scheduled for the latter date be changed
over to this coming Saturday, thus
giving Vancouver a game on their
grounds. This would mean that Vancouver gets the two next game on
July 27 and August 3. Westminster
at home on August 10, while the nexl
two would also be In Vancouver. The
changing of tbe July 27 game to September 14 would give the last three
games on tbe schedule to be played
on Queens park. No wonder tbe local
delegates balked at the suggestion.
Walked Right Out.
As for Matt Barr, he appeared
greatly agi M ted at the state of affairs
and tried his utmost to get the local
delegates to stay In the meeting, but
all to no avail.

Italian Laborer Charged With
Attempted   Murder Re
serves Defence.
Prisoner Has Good  Reputation���
to Be Applied for���Witness'
Fedele Grossi, an Italian laborer
who resides on Thirteenth street, was
committed for trial at the next court
of competent jurisdiction by Police
Magistrate Edmonds yesterday mornings on a charge of attempting to
murder a compatriot, Frank Gonsales
by name, on Sunday morning.
Mr. J. P. Hampton Bole, who appeared for Unaccused, reserved defence.
John Hammlnk, a resident on Thirteenth street, who witnessed Sunday's
fracas, was the first witness. He
stated that Gonsales,was sitting on
the doorstep of hls house about 10:30
when CrosBi caine along. Grossi stopped and demanded that Gonsales pay
hiii) $1.75 which he said was owing
him. The trouble arose out ot this
and after an altercation the accused
produced a revolver and threatened to
flog hla debtor. Witness then ran
to the office of the Walsh Sash and
Door factory and telephoned for the
Escaped Shooting.
Gonsales, on the stand, asserted
that had he not grasped tbe wrist of
the accused at the time the revolver
was produced, he would have certainly been shot
the air.
Events at Meeting. .
Th�� meeting opened a tttfto after 8
o'clock with President Harry Cowan
In the chair. In his opening remarks
the chairman mentioned that this was
a Bpeclal meeting called to discuss
the causes of Westminster forfeiting
the game In Vancouver on Saturday
last, and the present crisis that now
Manager Gray, when called upon
for explanation, had very little to say
other than that the Westminster club i
had fulfilled all Its obligations In
paying the deposit money, and thus
abiding with the constitution.
Papera Ware Notified.
As tar as'this talk about tbe Vancouver morning papers not being notified was concerned. Manager Gray
produced a document signed by the
chief operator of the local exchange
which was proof that both the News-
Advertiser and the Sun had been
spoken to and told there would be no
game on Saturday.
Mr. Con Jones questioned the veracity ot the statement that .these
papers bad been notified, but a cross
examination of the representative of
the Weatmlnster Dally News appeared to leave no loophole tor Jones to
crawl Into.
' Impossible to Play.
Manager Gray also informed the
delegates that It would have been Impossible to held a team on'that date
as flve of bis regulars were not in a
position to play. George Rennle and
Tom Gifford were under suspension,
Tom Rennle andStlrumpy Spring were
. down with sickness, the latjtcr with
the measles and Jimmy Gifford lying
ln the hospital.
in their places they had McCarty
and Pat Feeney. as Sandy Gray positively refused to even consider to
play after having been out to pra^lcS
onlv two Mmes.       *
Then followed the motion by Lionel
Yorke wh'eh was seconded by Matt
Barr. Dolegat" Kell'ngton moved it

otherwise. y

, president, declared the motion carried.
That was all there was to It, the
local delegates, leaving the room.
No Game Siturday.
When ppen later in the evening,
Manager Gray gave out the following
statement: "You can take It from
me, but the Westminster team will
never appenr on Recreation park on
Saturday afternoon. We have the
monev to pay the usual deposit, and
the Vancouver delegates can change
all the remaining games on the
schedule to their own grounds, but ye
will never accept such a deal as that

A lta .Vista is nery slow and he much
doubted whether the building could
be completed by the time specified.
Inspection by a committee was invited by the architect of tho West

seen, and the report was adopted.
lt was decided to ask for tenders
for septic systems at the Inman avenue, and Armstrong avenue schools
tenders to be in at a meeting two

In order to provide the best fire

Two of the most important matters
taken up by the executive of the Progressive association at the regular
weekly meeting yesterday afternoon
were in connection witb the visit of
.he Duke of Connaught to the city
chia fall, and the visit of Colonel Sam
tiughes to the coast within the next
.wo or throe weeks.
It is felt by tbe association that u
welcome befitting the high station of
the Governor General should Ue
accorded the royal visitor when he
arrives bere. and yesterday the opinion waa expressed that it was a subject for the entire city to be Interest
ed In. After the matter had been
discussed as to the best means or
making a start iu the right direction
with the definite end in view of preparing a reception tor His Royal Highness, the secretary was instructed to
write a letter to tbe mayor requesting
him to call a general meeting of the
oltizens to talk over the matter.
In connection with the visit of the
minister of militia to the coast,
though hts Itinerary does not Include
a visit to the Royal City, It Is confidently expected that he could be Induced to come here If approached in
ihe proper manner. To this end the
matter waa left In the hands of a
special committee which will make
every effort to have the colonel pay
the city a call, and have him attend
a luncheon of the Progressive association If possible.
If the colonel could be persuaded to
c.^me here it was confidently anticipated by the members of the committee that the members of the National
Reserve and of the United Service
club would co-operate with the association and any other public bodies In
glvlug blm a rousing reception.
Mr. H. E. Rowley, of the steamship
Burin, addressed the committee and
isked for the support of the assop'a-
tlon lu buildng up n freight trade between New Westminster'and Victoria
The members of the committee were
persuaded that It wns of vital Import-
tnce to the commercial Interests ot
the city that the service given liy Mr.
Rowley's boat bo continued, b'tt pre-

��� ter was referred to the shipping coin-

Furthermore, they claim tbat tbe
Burin Is capable of ha:: JUng a 75 ton
cargo, and in the agreement with the
Victoria board "of trade, they are
supposed to place a larger boat on the
run wben the traffic demands IL
When mm yeatk��Uy Mr. ft. P.

disclaimed any connection with the
statements made at tbo meeting, at
he was not there, and. furthermore, it
was not in his line to handle the case.
He referred the representative of the
Westminster Daily News to Mr.
Arjhtar Davis, chairman of the transportation committee.
Favors Burin.
Mr. DavlB stated he wa-i entirely in
favor tof dropping the support now
given by the board of trade to the
Alaskan, as the owners of the boat
when they see a cargo awaiting them
at any other point, will leave tht.
mixed shipment* at Victoria and New
Westmlnater, and deal wijth the
straight cargoes, thus leaving the
shippers at both .points helpless until
she again arrives on iho scene.
"For the firJt two weeks." stated
Mr. Davis. "t��e Ataskan kept ur V
schedule time, but since then we havr
had to take a chance of getting our
goods through to their destination at
a time when the Alaskan ls not busy
elsewhere. I am certainly ia favor of
the board of trade supporting the
Burin, and if we are to have a regu-'
lar sailing schedule between tbe two
cities we must act and .act quickly.
I understand the Burin cjwners made
a three rdonths agreement with the
Victoria board of trade, whereby they
undertook to keep to their schedule
and as this expires at the end of this
month, tbe sooner the local merchant?
Uke up the, matter and give them
their support, the leBB danger there
will be of not having any boat on
the run altogether.
Cause of Trouble.
'-'The whole trouble," continued Mr
Davis, "occurred when the Victoria
authorities wrote the local board of
trade that they were arranging tr
have a boat on th*e run. and asked
for our co-operation. Nothing wae
done for a while, and when it became
known tbat Dodwell & Co. were ar

Alberta Is Steadily Turnln- From Hei
Old  Time  Ranrhes It Wheat.
There   is   one   Cuttle   Kim?   left   In
Alberta.    He is Pat Burns, of Oal-'flT.
the  first,  the   last  nnd  the  only   Pat
Burns.     He   has   watched  the  transi-
tion as keenly as the olil cattle mnn
���perhaps  more  keenly.    But  lie differs with  tiie old cattle mnn  in tliat
he has figured out the ultimate result, i
And he i.s not in the least pessimistic |
Pat Burns is practically tlie only old I
time rancher left who can still count-!
his steers hy the thousand.    Ho  was '
one of the  first  men  to try on'  the!
country   as   a   cattle-raising   district.!
That was back in '80. when  lie came'
west with a few head ol stock,
then   he   lias   become   wealthy,   won-
drnusly   wealthy   oven   for   the   wast,
where they.made money  111 a hurry.
He has two htttte packing plants, one
at Calgary and another at Vanentiv��r,
has a string of distributing an I retail
stores throughout British Columbia.
Mr. Burns says, and lie lias argued
to the point many times, that the
breaking up of the old time ranches
will not only benefit tlm country, bnt
will also eventually benefit the cattle
industry. And Ig) explains, it thus:
When an area previously used for
crazing becomes split up into countless sections and quarter sections, and
is used for settlement, the large herd
disappears. But smaller bunches,
kept by each individual fanner, and
fattened and looked after instead of
of the herd. The total number of
cattle may not be quite as large, hut
what remain are fed up and fat and
ready for market in the Spring, whereas oftentimes in tiie old days the loss
by drifting, by freezing, by winter
starvation was frightful.

years ago nearly four times that number croiaed the ocean to make tha lam-
ous roast beef of old England.
Some years ago it became evident
that a change must come over the
method of cattle raising. The old
ranch system demanded immense unpeopled areas, and as it is estimated
that twenty acres is required to satisfactorily feed one steer it was inevitable that settlement and hotiia-
steading in the country could not go
on without the .sacrifice of the ranges
on the part of the cattlo raisers.
Therefore, as settlers commenced to
make application for land* the Government by degrees cancelled the
grazing lease and restricted ���'eriously
the operations of the cattle rmichsrs.
In fact many of the larger ouf'ts sold
out' and quit business, swept ttsidi:
by   the  changing  conditions.
The result has been that ill the last
few years tliere have lieen very heavy
sales of-heifers and female stock, ��n(f
there are fewer cattle on the range today than there have ever been since
1890.���Canadian   Courier.

A.   H.  Savage   Landor  Had Ter.
rible Trip Over tha Andes.
Interesting particulars of an eighteen months' journey across South
America and back have just been given by Mr. A. H. 8ava?e Landor, who
has just returned to England, havintr
traveled by Araguaya. He has not
yet recovered from the effects of hards
shins endured on the expedition.
"M.v journey." he said, "included
the whole of the unexplored part of
Brazil between Rio and Mstuns in
the great central basin of the Kingu
Tapajoz and Madeira Rivers region,
whicli Brazilians themselves have always regarded a? impenetrable. After crossing Brazil I went over the
Andes through Peru to Lima, thenee
to Cuzco and Lake Titicaca to exam-'
ine  fnca ruins.
"Next I went across Bolivia and
Cbifi to A nt of ami sta. From (his
point, to Valparaiso by stAamer. and
once more across South America to
Buenos Ayrea.
"With the exception of thirty hours
in the train, all the traveling wa*
done on mure, canoe, or on foot. For
about half the distance we hnd to cut
our own tracks through the forest,
proceeded along the great campos or
b.v the prairies over vast areas of absolutely uninhabited country. The object of my journey was scientific, and
the expedition was my own venture.
"In tlie main, the chief difficulties
were due to the absence of roads and
the fact that I could obtain no help
from anyone, as all tried to dissuade
me from proceeding. 1 could get no
information, and existing maps proved to be very inaccurate. During my
journey I took careful observations,
and have prepared a map, scale one
mile to the inch. When I left Rio in
March last year. I took enough provisions to last for a year, but owing
to wastage on the part of my men
and loss these eventually gave out,
and towards the end of that part of
the expedition through the unexplored
portion of Brazil we remained for sixteen days without a morsel to eat.
"Happily there was plenty of water,
but there was no game, no fruit, no
flsh. and uo inhabitants, and neither
my men nor myself bad sufficient food
to.cover a sixpence. Our experiences
were terrible, und it was one of tha
most tragic marches I have ever
made. At this time I had with me
two carriers���my'only companions���
and they suffered even more than I
did. Both wanted to put on end tn
their'sufferings. and it was only with
difficulty that I prevented tliem lrom
committing suicide.
"For myself, although accustomed
to roughing it. I nearly died. I lost
fiftv pounds in weight."
Mr. Savage Landor Mated that he
studiad several new tribes, made vocabularies of their languages, and
some interesting geological, geographical and anthropological observations. His zigzag route over unexplored or little known country in Itra-
cil was about 5.(Mil) miles, and the lira-
silian Government are so astonished
at the succms of what they had regarded as impossible that Congress
voted a grant of $80,000 to the explorer.
Mr Sava're Landor ad led that this
was the last of his twenty-live years'
exploring. He is reserving full details' of his experiences [or his forth.
coming lecture at the Ro--il Institution of Great Britain  uexi  mouth.

To alt true Imperialists the news of
Monday's happenings and pronouncements is that old Westminster from
wbicb we take our name, must bring
both messages of cheer and of additional warning^ By "true Imperially! is to' we mean   all   who   have   at

heart tbe. binding together of the British Empire Into a closer and more
linrninnioiis wb'olc. They are to be
found in al! shades of political creeds,
all of tbem are very different to the
flag-waving frolh that the enemies of
the Empire movement would have us
iM'Jicve them to be, and, just a.-; on
Monday there'was given an exhibition of the one-mindedness of both the
great political parties of thc British
Isles on Empire defence, so it will be
found that throughout the empire
ini'ij of all thii myriad parties hold
similar vieics.
In passing it may he mentioned that
thp. peniiMMMHts expressed by -the
imihnr member for Leicester are very
different to those evidenced by tbe
J��ilior governments of the great Australasian dominions. Labor men the
empire over deplore the necessity for
the tremendous; expenditure upon war
material, but tbe opinion of the majority ia that ii is a necessary precaution for the preservation of the state
���that, more tban any other system of
SOTenunent, haa accorded them the
privileges they now enjoy, and which
ta even rtow working out more
schemes fbr''fiieir betterment.
In the speeches of the British ministers there ia"foreshadowed the be-
t,-iri.'iinpr of sjbat, Jniporial parliament of
. tbe Empire around which the dreams
of all Imperialists have centered for
smtny yettfS. in J* em also Is forecast
a speedy BMlM of the problem of
Canada's naval contribution to the defence of tiip. Empire, and her share in
directing tbe policy, not only of that
siavy. but of similar common burdens
ami responsibilities in peace or In
Tba Brlttoh race throughout its history has proved capable of meeting all
emergencies, and constructing a government to order its goings, and there
can be no d^jpbt that eventually a
truly Imperial parliament will be
evolved. That Canada should have
played so prominent a part in laying
the foundations of this movement is a
matter for congratulation to this country as a whole.
.���MeaaTxh-Jfe -%-e Jiave to wait for the
details of the naval program, which
vm think tb# future will prove to be
bm. vae ul the buttresses of the
^renter irtnitfrnre cf inter-Imperial con-
trjteutloii and representation that will
be gradually iliuilit up.
The enrae of ihe world today Is in-
The suggestion that the age of entrance into the kindergarten and Public schools be raised from flve years
to six and seven years respectively
will flnd support in many quarters.
Beginning about the fifth year, the
school period of the average child
now last3 about ten years, but the
flrst two or three of these are pretty
much barren of real intellectual development. Educationally they are cf
importance only as they surround the
child with disciplinary influences,
commence the training of tbe infantile mind in most elementary matters,
and lay to some extent a base for a
more fruitful guidance later on. It is
conceded that the premature development cf brain cells results in arrested development at a subsequent period, .when* the I powers- of comprehension and of perception should be unfolding freely. Play Is the principal
element in the formation of a child's
character about the fifth year, and the
absurdity of attempting at that time
to obtain a symmetrical development
is quite manifest.
Probably if the home conditions
were quite insanitary, the child quite
neglected, or in otherwise very unsatisfactory environment, school even
at such an early age would be preferable. Against this must bo placed
the fact that such a child is more apt
to be sub-normal, and, therefore, to
be retarded by an attempt to force Its
mind to a working equalitv with
those of normal children, or those of
greater Inherent capacity. It seems
unquestionable that, apart from those
r.n3es where the school is the happy
"leans of throwing a protecting mantle around neglected ch'Idren. little
can hs gained educationally by diverting the child's energies at such an age
from the natural lines^ of development. A healthy child of kindergarten age is more fatigued by enforced
sitting than by play of its own choosing. The fault is not, perhaps, so
much that of imposing school disci-
nline on the child, as in the seemingly irrepressible tendency -to develop
precocity to the Iwiif.
If bv the postponing for a year or
two of the beginning of school training the child makes quicker progress
because it is possessed of a more vigorous body and a readier comprehension, there would be distinct advantages in the proposed change. What
is learned in the first two or three
years of schooling is swallowed up by
the larger vision of later years. The
question is essentially one of the condition of the pupil at the public school
leaving. There seems to be valid
reason for believing that a later start
might mean, on the average, a strong
er and  earlier  finish.���Toronto  Mail.

Whitman.   Vallon gave himself up today  and  was  held  by  the  coroner's
jury without bail on a charge of complicity m the murder.   Apparently the
authorities were elated at the information obtained from Vallon although
its   nature   was   not   divulged.   All
Commissioner Dougherty would   ,say
was that Vallon "was ln the murder
car and that an important arrest was
expected shortly."
From Vallon   the  district  attorney
and Commissioner Dougherty hope to
get  the names of those "higher up"
who hired the gun men to slay Rosenthal. ��� Mr. Whitman has thrown down
the gauntlet to the police department
declaring that the ''murder smells of
police connivance."
Outside of Vallon. interest centred
in the appearance today   before   the
grand jury of  Mrs.. Rosenthal.    Her
husband had promised to tell District
Attorney    Whitman    what    lie knew
about the    alleged    partnership    between the police and New York gamb
Iers.   The district attorney now hopes
to get many'of the facts from    Mrs.
Rosenthal,  who  is believed  to have
had  intimate knowledge of her hus
band's affairs.

have been planned, which, at ten

three hundred Arms and flfteen thousand employees were affected by
these disputes, the majority of which
were not terminated before the end
of the month. The loss of time to

of 355,000 working days in June. 1911.
A feature of the month waa the unrest prevailing among workmen in the

Tomorrow  Night May  Decide Championship   of    Intermediate
Ttie intermediate championship Ia-
cro&ie g^ine to b��' played' pn Thursday
evening iSt- 6.'45 iii Queens park promises to be one of the most keenly contested competitions ever held on the
. local field this season.
Ol tbe four games to be played for
the championship the 'Sappertons
have annexed two so far, and the
West End lads have... one to their
credit. If the boys from outside the
eastern limits of the city should bap-
pen to put It ovef the boys from the
extreme western limits tbey will become the champions. Should thd
AVest Enders win out on Thursday,
however, another game will be necessary to decide the contested honors.
Both teams are confident of winning, but judging from the determined
ma: ner with which the West End
boys are preparing for the play, the
Sapperton stlckhandler3 won't have
everything their own way, The honors
at stake are the championship, the
senior amateur lockets, and the W.
J. Kerr cup.
The West Ends will lipe-up as follows: S. Mortison, goal; M. Mort!-
' son. point; W. Mortison, cover point;
J. Burr, first defence; R. McDonald,
second defence; M. Lougheed. third
defence; L. Sangster, centre; J. Alii

the final score reading 10 to 9. Captain Ryall certainly had something up
his sleeve when he gave out advance
dope about a rejuvenation of the
Bals and gave the Leafs a fright at
certain periods of the game.
Owing to the fact that several players of both nines appeared at a late
hour, the game was ended in semi-

The eyes of the baseball enthusiasts
are nOw turned to the coming game
on Friday evening when the Moose

Maple Leafs have not forgotten the
deal put over them in the last game
against tbe herd and are just aching
to get another chance. This will come

It Is to be hoped the managers of
both teams will see the necessity of
having the game start at a reasonable
hour so that It can be finished without the batters taking a chance of
striking at a phantom sphere.

This structure was orlgiually called

of its enormous size.

As a general description of the building the following pnssage of Gibbon is
said to be perfect: "The outside of Ibe

entrances, passages and stnlrcases

were as modest as his capital. Nothing of a wild-cat nature entered into
the general's scheme*, as may wp!I
be imagined, but it was not long before the financier discovered that his
genius lay not in the direction of financial operations, and soon, like Kipling's veteran, he was back to tha
army again.
As to 'Lord Kitchener's financial
ability, there was not much question
among/the stockbrokers of the City nf
London, who. on his visit to them
in-1808 to urge a subscription to his
cqllege at Khartoum, were more limn

"market" and his knowledge of good
and likely "futures." Though by no
means a stock gambler, it is said the
grant of $400,000 mnde him b.v Parliament hns been trebled owing to lucky
investments  in  "moving"   markets.
In 1902 the late Lord Salisbury declared that Kitchener possessed nil

the principle of responsible government. And *n thev were. They taught
it to the people of Upper and Lower
Canada, and won it* acceptance at the
polls. The Karl of Klsin put it int**
practice. And here is another link
connecting Lord Durham with Canadian public life, for the Karl of Elgin
was the son-in-law of the Earl of
Durham, and to the son-in-law fell ie

father-in-law  hari designed.
For other reasons besides tbat nf
being the foundation-builder nf lhe
true colonial policy, can the Earl nl
Durham be called a remarkable mnn.
His character nnd his work are the
subject of a sketch by Mr. C. P. Lucas, published in a recent issue of
The Royal Colonial Institute Journal.
Writing of the man, Mr. Lucas says
that the Karl of Durham was "made

A Wonderful Feat.
One  of  the  most'remarkable   feats
ever performed by a diver is related
by   the crew of the   British   sloop-of;
war   Shearwater.     J.   P.   Lingen,   a"
young   Kngiish    shipwright,    hoardod
up th? propeller well while the vessel
wos rolling   in  h��avy   seas, and   so
enabled her to mnke   the   voyage   to
pn*'.    The  Shearwater  wa.   cruising
off the coast of  Mexico  when,   in  a
storm, she lost her propeller.    Resort
was  immediately   hnd   to   the   sails.'
Imt  it   was  found   that  steering   was
almost   impossible,    because    the  big
arch, or well,   under   the   stwrn.  in
which   the   propeller   hnd    revolved,
made  the rudder's  work    ineffective!
The officers decided that if tliey were
to   bring the  ship  tn  port,   this  well
must   l��e   lioarded   up.    Lingen    wss
sent  down  to do  the  work.    Though
hampered  by  lh-  heavy   divi"g  suit
and  by. the weight of water,  lie  was
sble to adjust himself to the bad rolling of the ship and hnnd!" the heavy
timbers passed  to him.    H ' fastened
the boards so securely that they could
only   be   shifted   in   one   place   when

His achievements in the public life
of Great Britain were not conspicuous. "He had, it is true, taken a prominent part in shaping tlie lirst Reform
bill, and lie was a recognized leader
of the Radical Wing of the Whig Party." The only political office he ever
held in Kngland was the nominal one
of Lord Privy Seal in the Ministry of
his lather-in-law, Lord Grey; and for
two years he was Ambassador to Russia. And still, writes Mr. Lucas, "he

surrounded by a large and brilliant

subsequent occasions his staff, it is
said, was almost as showy ns thit of

A Story of a Labyrinth
It was a June evening. Tbe old
Dougbton mansion was bathed ia tbe
light ot tbe rising moou. which Hooded
tbe old fashioned garden and showed
tbe ancient maze called "tbe spider
web." In the very center of the maze,
the spot so difficult to attain, something white gleamed.
I Molly Houghton was standing tbere
picking tbe great white bride roses tbat
formed u snowy pyramid In tbe center of (lie spider web.
1 Hastened down tbe path wbicb led
to one of tbe many entrances to this
puzzling maze formed ot trimly cut
hedges of boxwood, its exact uge 1
did not know, but It was very old.
"Who Is tbat?" called Molly ueross
tbe web.

you nre. Molly. I'm coming after you."
"If   yon   can."   she   laughed   gayly.
-Stephen says he can thread the muse

"Lome on. Jack." Ue urged.
"Very well."
"And tbe victor recelvee a buncb of

"liout be too fussy over your re-
-wurd." Interrupted Sr*oHj coolly ''.Nothing Is lovelier than roses iu .lune. and
If you don't cure for lbe trophy you
needn't enter the contest."
"I'm Kind to take a rbance on anything you offer. Misa Molly.' cried Me-
itlieir nastily. "Confound this spider

"Of course'. When the clock strikes

"(loud for me!" crowed Stephen sud

I wns smearing softly to myself, for
1 was starting ugain for tbe tiftb time.
I could see Stcpheq plugging uwu.r
��heud or me.* and I knew be was Hearing the goal or desire. I felt that I
must buttle wiib blm If be carried olT
the hunch of white roses thut Molly
was plucking for the victor.
Again I started bravely forth, keep
tng i.iy eyes away from Molly, and so
1. like Siephen. passed b.v Ihe futerul
lurulug und entered one of the inner
< iivies of tbe web hearer tbe center.
"i'r.i ti spider.'.; declared Molly. "Vou
nre ties, or course. *'t*ehii|l put todeath
tlie one that <oiues;i^J��yh m.v reach."'
"Happy depth!" taurmnred Stephen
"Kouiish fly!" JeertU Molly,
'l wus silent, fiotoebow tbis race was
"t winter or life und death to me. I
Telt th.it It I reached Molly's side Brst
tlle victory might prove an opening for
me to suy something Important to ber-
to declare my love. It needed moon
light and June magic to bolster up m.v
couruge. for I was fearfully afraid or
wonueu and of Molly Dongbtou in particular.
Sgaln.   Of course the right turn would
bring one nearer to the center.
Unce wben I wns a boy Molly's
brother Tom and I bud spent u night
in tbat wretched spider's web. We
bad essayed to thread its Intricacies at
twilight und hud become lost within
Its mazes. Too |5t��ud spirited to call
for dellverence. we bud wandered
around and around until, tired oul. wo
fell asleep to awaken on the outer edge
of the web with our Indignant relatives
bending over us. Since then I bad refused to enter Its mysteries.
Tonight, however, with Molly stand- j
Ing In the center, the prospect was al-1
If Stephen Drake had not been

"Which road do yon take. Jack?" he
I looked ;at the two openings. The,
Inner .one appeared to lead to tbe goal j
and yet might traitorously land me i
without tbe web. Tbe outer one might I
lead me by devious ways to Molly.
Something drew my eyes to tbe
ground, and tbere In the narrow way
between the box rows I saw white
rose petnls scattered. They drifted
here and tbere along tbe ground like
vagrant flakes of snow, nnd they led
to tbe outer opeulng. My vein of sentiment prompted me to choose to follow
tbe rose petnls and abide by whatever
fate they dealt out to me.
I "I'll tnke the outer way." I said and
stepped punt him Into a path where
: more petnls flecked Ibe way.
' Stephen chose the Inner opening tbat
circled nearer to Molly and apparently
led directly tn ber side. My heart almost stopped beating at the sight of
Stephen drawing so close to Molly���

which almost every human being and

Following tli^ procession came
trapeze work, slnck and tight wire

looking clowns and performing ele-

The usual exhibitions of horse dancing were superb and sim'liar displays
by elephants were exceedingly good.
The human statuary displays in
which several historical scenes and
characters were portrayed in a striking manner by a group of people incited continued applause.
To a good many people the strefct
parade was a disappointment. Instead
of appearing about in o'clock as was
expected the show did not turn up
till shortly alter noon. I When it did
appear, it was easily observable that
not half of the company were present
and all of the wagons with the wild
animals were missing.
When questioned in the afternoon
as to the reason for the unfavorable
showing made by the procession, it
was stated by the management that it
was next to impossible for some of
the wagons to climb the Eighth street
hill which had to be negotiated on
the way to and from Moody square
and for this reason thev had to be
withdrawn from the parade.
