Professor  Blank asked   J.  P.  ?.Ior-  gan,   tilic     janitor,   to  get a cat    "r  him,   as  he w'ished   to   illustrate    his  lecture  on '-"Respiration,"  by experi-  ments upon the  animal-   Mr.   /Iorgan  succeeded in. getting one with   ihe aid  of'some  small "boys.    When   his   .^tu-  dents   had . assembled,   the   prof.'>sor  put   the  cat   into   the   glas:;   re-.oiiVr  of-the air pump and began   to pump  out  the  air.    Before  tbo  piston  had  time   to  move more   than  once       or  twice,  live cat began to feel   very uncomfortable,  and  discovering   .he  ap  erture  thro'-'gh  which the air    /as escaping,   put her foot on  it ?tnd thus  corked  the  pipe and stopped  the removal     of the air.     Several  suVe-  quenti.'-attempts'lb carry  on   thc    experiments   were'", alike   ineffectual,   for  as  soon  as  the glass cover was  put  over her and she felt the rcmo.'.il of  the air,   the cat would   put her feet  over .the pipe and keep them  .jre-wed  there.  The      students,   struck  by  thc  re- ���������  markable intelligence shown by     thc  cat;  asked the professor  to liberate  llie  animal,  and  loudly  cheered  li2t  self-possession,     when the cat, after  cooly  cleanir^ herself and     .coining  In r roitk*;! fur,' jumped down aiid rubbed   itself     against the legs of   the  students   sitting  on  the  front   --each.  .She   is   now   permanently  annexed  to  the college and an object  of  interest  to   all   visitors.

G-rah^m,  George  II,  Johnson  'aikl Joseph Hardy, who were appointed on   Friday   evening  last   at       a  meeting of the United' Aline Workers,  and Manager Stockett.   On Saturday  morning  a   long  conference  resulted.  None of the  parties t gave .'out the re-  sults  of  the interview,  but it     was  evident     from remarks dropped that  at  least     some  headway  was  being  made.    Secretary  AIcLcan   stall.I    in  the afternoon of  Saturday   that    he  hoped-a settlement might be reached  before very long.  Statement of some  things      that   it   is alleged   occurred  would  indicate  that  Manager  Stockett agreed to change very materially  the rule     that  has  prevailed  about  dockage  for  waste or rock iu a carload.  i    It is  further stated that' no headway was made in reference to recog-:  n it ion of  the union,  Manager Stockett     claiming  that he had absolute  instructions   from  his  company   relative to this.  Opinion  is divided  as to  thc result  of      the  ballot  which  will   be taken  this week   on  a proposition to settle  tJie  matter.     There are undoubtedly  many   who  are  very  anxious to  get  to work.    There are others  who hold,  strongly  to  the opinion that no settlement is insight.    Thc ballot will,,  it'-ip supposed,. he  secret,   and   if  so,  every man can exercise his  will either  way without criticism.  c    '  ���������.ff"--j!->\:i  -' ,M  ���������*&i-.T ���������',...y .THE DAILY LEDGfR  published   every day except Sunday  BY ���������     THE       DAILY       LEDGER  COMPANY.

English critics^of lawn tennis attribute the great success of Miss Sutton to her magnificent forehand doe,  which is one of the highest essentials in the woman's game. Bur ir is  stated (hat 'if Miss Lottie Dodd, the  fowner English champion, had been  at the olhci side 'of the net, Miss  Sutton's best winnMig stioke would  lu\e gone for  nothing.  Although English women have advanced in the scientific points oi (he  game, still they have many ('.Acts,  and until these arc remedied the best  of them could he defeated ah.ays by  a playei like Miss Sutton. In speaking ol Miss SuUon's- woik, the Field  says:  "Thc tiimnphant procession oi  Miss Sutton, who defeated all our  players without the loss of a set,  Ihu holdci of the championship "ii-  cludcd, needs no explanation whai-  e\cr. All things remaining o.piai, the  same thing would occur again and  'again. -It is purely a question of  stioke. Like the foiehaiid stroke of  Miss Dodd, that of Miss Sutton is  foimed on correct lines wilh the intended Highi of the ball, and is  brought smartly and high upwaid at  the1 finish Hy (his means top spin is  communicated to thc ball, which  keeps low.  On    thc     othei  side of the net  we  saw,  as, a   rule,     a   player who had  not grasped  this first piincipi-.l  of   a  diiect  stioke  with top spin.  Instead,  the  ball     was struck with a racket  that ciossed   the  intended   hue       of  flight much below the centre     Tnc,  the    ine itahle     result  being  a ball  that was  retaided  in  its   (lkbl,   and  which losc  abruptly  fiom   the ground  an easy ictuin to the opponent being  thereby  picsonled.  "Willi Miss Dodd on the opposite  side of the net the majoiity of those  wffiimg stiokcs would not have l.eon  * possible,'for the ball when propelled  by the lackctt of Miss Dodd would  rise a few inches fiom the ground instead   of feet."

Editoi   Ledger,   Sir,���������Please allow  me to call the attenticn of the rate-  jiiycrs     of tins city    to some of the  actions of     oui city council.    About  two 'weeks ago' they  called  for ten-  deis for painting tne  fnc hall. Now,  Sir,  they did  not  mention  any  special conditions  to be complied with, '  but asked for  figures  for  the work.  Theie     were  three  tenders sent in,^  mine being the lowest hy $7.50,  but  I was not given the. ccntract.    How  long  will this  kind  of thing be allowed to     go on without a protest?  Last year the council called for tenders for some ditchfug on 3rd Avcn-  , ue.' Some rate-payers put in tenders  for the  woik.    I think'the price was  27 cents pei  yard,  but they did not  get the  woik.   The  work  was' given  to a man who  boarded at a Robeits  sticct hotel at 50 cents per yard, although  he did  not  own' one dollar's  j worth     of property  in town.    Now,  ( Sir,  if, it   is absolutely ^necessary for  a man     to    hoard at, or  spend his  time at any  particular ��������� hotel in order     to get city work,  trie council  should    have     so stated  when they  called for tenders.
