Nanaimo won the toss and  had the advantage of d strong  wind.: The Thistles were the  first to become dangerous and  were unlucky in not having a  score to their credit before the  game had been five minutes old.  Joe Williams banging the ball a-  gainst the goal keeper, and from  the rebound his shot met with  the same fate, with the assistance of the wind fhejjvisltors had  the best of matters but could not  get to close quarters, the defense  holding them well in hand.,  Nanaimo were the fust to  score, a cross from Waddell he  iug carried through by the wind  McMillan making no 'effort to  save thinking the ball was going  past, t,io Thistles now put some  ginger into their game, but were  unable to beat down the defense  Dargic put the Thistles on eveu  terms beat tug Shepherd with a  beauty; half time was called  without the score being add ad to.

Immense Railway Shops to be Built  by C.P.R. to Handle Work on  Western Division  Canadian Pacific Railway officials  suite that now that the contract, for  Hie Company's new Calgary shops has  been let a statement wiil soon he made  as to just what will coiis.ilitne the  new car r.pairing plant.

'lhe machinery which will be installed in the new shop?* will be of the  \ery latrsi design and lhe tool equipment will be very complete.  The Annus shops ai Montreal arc  equipped to pro-\ido for repairs to  liio Compifny's rolling t-tock on the  line:! east of Winnipeg, including some  noil locomotives, and to construcL new  cars and locomotives for the cm ire  service. These shops turn out an en-'  Ure new train cveiy day, Tho shops  at Caisary are intended by lhe C.P.R.  lo provide for the repairs to equipment on its Western lines. That they  will liave plenty of wpvk lo do is evidenced from ihe fact tliat the Canadian Pacific Hailway makes it a point  to completely oveihaul its rolling  stock at least once a year. The company does this in order that its equipment may always be in the best possible slate of efficiency. A few years  ago the Angus shops at Montreal and  the shops at Winnipeg were sufficient  for this work but the C.P.R.'s equipment has increased so greatly within  lhe la.I few years, tbat the Calgary  shops are a necessity.

Just About Leads the World in  Number.cf Miles Equipped with  Telephone -Despatching Circuits3  "Since-tlio system was installed   it  'lias worked perfectly," said a Canadian  Pacific Railway official. recently,    in  ; response to a query regarding a rumor  .that had spread that the C.P.R.' was  {not altogether satisfied with its new.  Bystem of despatching trains by'telephone.   "There was a report circulated east of Montreal," said James Kent;  manager of Telegraphs, "that-the" C.P.  R. was considering going back to the  old style of. despatching by telegraph,  but tho idea is'most, ridiculous.,Sipce  despatching by telephone was inaugurated on the C.P.R., it has been   distinctly successful and is iu every way  superior to the old/method of despatching by telegraph."  Mr. W. J. Camp, electrical engineer  of the C.P.R., was also Indignant at the  idea that the C.P.R. was not satisfied  with the new. system. All one has to  do," said Air. Camp, "to understand  how thoroughly tbe Canadian Pacific  believes in tbo telephone despatching  system, is to take cognizanco of tho  number of miles of new circuits being  installed each year by tbe Company."  This year, stated Mr. Camp, the C.P.  R.'would add between 1000 and 1200  miles of now circuits.' The appropriation for the work has'not yet been  made, but 1,000 miles is a conservative estimate of the amount of new  circuits to bo installed. Most of this  now mileage will be on Western' lines  as the main lines of tho eastern division arc now practically all using the  telephone system. The ' apparatus  will be installed on the Ottawa short  line, but the rest of the installation  will probably'take place on the,lines  west of Fort William. -  '- ,  ". When- thi3 next' year's installations  have been,made tho C.P.R. will.just  about lead the world in the number of  miles of its lines equipped with - the  telephone dispatching circuits. It has  already' 4,000 miles of circuits, which  places it second on the list of railways using this system, and makes it  easily-the'leading railway in.Canada  in this -respect.

"During lhe rain today I saw that  the kitchen roof leaked."  "I will have a man up hero tomorrow."  No roaring nnd shouting. No declaring that Mr..

As he sat with tho cat in  his lap and stroked her back and called  her fond names Mrs. Bowser was trying to figure things out. She suggest-  r<HlT,Mnyer~teirrbuO^  She hinted that' ho might go around  and see tho family doctor and ask him  what he thought of Taft's vetoes, but  lhe seed fell on barren soil.  Mr. Bowser- continued to bo good.  Ills smile didn't come off, He hugged  the cat and bade her good night as he  went to bed, and ho didn't cuss n cuss  when his collar button bothered fer  five minutes. There was n lear In Mrs.  Bowser's eye when she fell asleep. She  might wake up a widow, But she  didn't. She awoke (o happiness ond  to lhe real living, breathing Bowser,  who wns out of bed and exclaiming in  his good old hearty way:  "By the great horn spoon, but you  must have got up iu the night nnd  thrown my socks out of the window to  a trump! I've looked around formore'ii  an hour, uud I can't Iind hole or .'.air  of ihem."  "Why; you've got 'em on your feet,"  replied Mrs, Bowser us a gird smile  enmo to her face.  PONY ON THE FARM.  He's an "Anioosin' Little Feller," but  > Also Useful.  Only the farmers who own ponies  realize--how much thoso littlo animal-  do toward making farm life easier. As  n rule, the Shetlaud is too small to ba  of much use, but when It is crossed  with a larger breed the result is ������  strong, vigorous pony that not only  can furnish fun for the children, but  can do enough work to more than pay  for ita board aud care. Unltko the larger work animals, a pony cau be used  for light tasks when It Is a yearling  und thus become proQ table when very  young.  A pony requires very little feed. One  -that was pastured on n medium sized  lawu had all It could do to keep the  grass trimmed. If the animal is put  out to browse in fence corners or along  the road he will forage for himself until late In the fall nnd will require very  little feed even when shut up in bad  weather. 1 f there is no room in the  barn a rough shed will furnish shelter  ������  600D Sl'ECIUEX OF PONT.  i" A VARIEGATED MENU.

There is great danger in- overfeeding,  yet the faithful little animal should  not be starved. Ponies at times like  chopped apples or carrots and other  vegetables, aud these will help lo keer  them ia fine condition. It is seldom  necessary to feed grain to a pony.  We havo a little wagon, bought nt a  sale for almost nothing, to which the I  pony is hitched nearly  every  day  lu J  busy seasons, and -the children  ilui-  take a hand In the -work, says a writer  _lii._Countr.y__Gentlpmi._n'. They. _c_o_u_l_d  not manage tbo work horses, for these  are heavy nnd headstrong, but the  pony is fun for them. It Is u common sight to see them in the pony cart ]  going after walnuts or boards or to the  truck patch for potatoes,-corn, tomatoes or melons nnd on a thousand aud  one other errands that are known only  to farmers.  It la nlso profitable to raise a pony  colt each year, for, considering the cost  of keeping them, the little animals sell  almost ns well ns horses. A yearling  pony mare brought $00 at our sale, and  the entire cost of raising nnd keeping  hoe did not exceed $20. Though no  busy farmer wants to give his entire  time to the pony business, yet a pony  of two (o sell each year moans n neat  little sum and ono that represents very  little labor, (lentlc ponies, well broken  to the saddle and the cart, often sell  for ns much ns $U<0 (o SluO, but  they uro not yearliiigu There Is not  nn nul.mil on the I'nem which, to say  nothing of the delight.thnt It gives to  the children, will bring larger return*,  year after year and causo so littlo  trouble and expense ns n (julet, gentle  pouy mure. v  ALL\'FROM_ONE FARM!

In 'that  avude it was stated that tho library,  | then at Markham, Ont. was to" be ro-  . moved to Toronto.   The removal has  -. since taken place, and the C. F. L. B.  (now occupies quarters'at i05 Annette i  St., Toronto, Ont.      - -j  The Canadian Free Librarv for ths-  -Blind is attempting to reach and ben-  ; efit all the blind of Canada, but it is  .encountering serious obstacles in (he  ; realization of this hope from the dif-  ificulty-in securing names and addres-  ' scs of those without sight, irom the  ; necessity of .canvassing for funds to  defray tho expenses of',maintenance.  Tlie Board of Management therefore  reipiests all  readers 'bf this journal  : who aro acquainted- with .blind per-  jsons not nqw enjoying, tho benefits  ; of-the library, io send iri such names  ;and addresses to the Secretary, S. C.  ; Swift,  8  Washington  Ave..  Toronto,  - Out.   It also makes a direct appeal to  j the generous Canadian public to con-  i (ribiito"some small   portion 'of   the  (wealth with which It hasjieen blessed  (during the  past year.    All eonlrlbu-  tions should'be sont to the treasurer,  R. W. Hermon,' Ks(>., 3r-Balmuto St.,  Toronto, Ont.  It is Uie desire of the C. F. I.. B.  jo establish a priatinu; department for  the* purpose of printing Canadian  texts in embossed type for the use  of the Canadian Blind. There is at  present, no such establishment in Can-  jada. with the result that Canadian lit-  jerature is practically unavailable to.  i. our sightless citizens. ' Thirty, thousand dollars are required to secure a  "ufficielit" income "to mako tlie plan,  feasible. Less .than a'thousand'of this  amount is at present in tho treasury  of the C. F. -L. B.' The Library asks  the Canadian people to help it to realize thl.8 plan so worthy of assistance.

Thu IsUader announces a so-called b- x  ag contest to take place in oar towu uext  Saturday evening.  There is a str.mg and growing seuti:  meut iu the towa that it ii time this dis  gusting busineii. was put a slop to. We  have reoeatly had ton inahy extiibitions of  brutality under the guise of "the manly  art of suit defence," We are tuld that thu  police have tbe matter und<-r their super-  vi_..oi_.\Vhat<. fleet haa that had in the past  other thau lending official approval to  prize fights in which repeatedly ono of the  principals lias been knocked aen.ele---- in  tbe tirst ������r seeond round ? Is that b. x-  ing for points ? I am not blaming the  police for if the fight is permitted at all  the police have no chance to interfere until the brutality if committed, and then it  i������ too late.  The responsibility lies with the promoters and boeatt-ra of the fight and the auth  orittet who permit it. The Trades Licen-  .e By-Law permits boxing in a licensed  hall ; but will Mayor McLeod or the Police Commit-, mers m.iutain thut such ex.  hibitions aa we havj been having, w ith  the (.re arraugod sharing of the gate receipts between the principal B___d the Lru-  tal disabling blows which have been so fre  frequent, i_ merely boxing and does n<>t  constitute a prize fight ? Why should  Cumberland be .addled with ihe reproach  of permitting such-ast exhibition a___w_oul_L  not be tolerated in Viotoria or Vancouver,  or wicked Seattle, San Frauci 00 or New  York? Even in the proaen. instance the  priueipala are not citieena ml uuuiberlmtd,  bat outsiders who ree-on tu the city for a  protection which would not be >ocord--d  their di-tjfUutmg txhibitioa outside the  oity limits. We had.better surrender our  charter if iu lontinuance means tlie en-  oourig.meut of such demoralizing agou-  .oies as would wot be tob.ra.tsd under the  dir?nt hdnainiittratiou of. the Attorney General. 1 uudvrstand'tliat tbe by-laws aro  are now iin lor tho eon-ideration of ihe  Council for revision. The matter is easily  adjusted by omitting spurring and boxing  irom the list of exhibitions permitted in a  lioeusod hall. Inilutciwe a -pcoi.l license would be required for each boxing  sxhibition, nnd the matter coustquently  would be closely undor the supervision of  theC-uucil.  Bui iu thf present instance there are ag  grevating uirouiustiinoeB which abundantly warrant tlio iuterferonoo ot nuthority  for iti pt event i.in, Ono of the prinolpiils  of tbo projiofcud oontout is a colored mnn  aud the r_co fueling; Is running high un  both sides, Wiih the -prejudice which  has nlto&dy beeu ore������toil by the recent  Juhustuu und JefTorieo light, and especially with tho conditions in a mining cuuip,  Huch in this, umUitig it particularly desirable to avoid stirring ilio slumbering rao-  iul uDimi sities, I BUbmit *-ir, thot it is lu-  oumbout upou the authorities in the name  nf piiiioe mil publio ordir to provuut tlio  propos'id Utflit,  C1T.S5I.N.
