II.���������In a      p,������m-r  which  was at  times     very brilliant.  Ckirriscn      yestrrJay   tiyhtcnod   1>'ni,  grip on   the championship of      Vam  couvcr island  by defeating- the Lady  smith team hy the score of 5-3.    Although the    field was    hi far     from  ,    good condition, tofcrth teams    showed  good   footib,ll,  but allowance      mus  be made.for Ladysmith     from     the  fact that;'they am used     lo    phiy-  ing    rn ' a       hard   groundp-ii'i   ���������with  out cleats,  they were unable to hold  their  feet.     This   was easily      s"������"i-  on 'more than  one  occasion  ������    when  ' .their  forwards  missed'several      iiiiL*  opportunities-  to score  hy slippimg.  The game,  although  at  times; very  rou fa,  was not as  gkiod football as  expected,     both  on     account- of the  grouhds and  also from  the fact thai  rather too much  rough play   was al  lowed.  Although the game was won H' U-'2  Garrison tbe score^ does not indicate  tke play, as the Ladysmith players  had far more of forward play than  their     opjipnpnlLs, /and the play wo������  largely in the Garrison territory  The Ladysmith .forward line came  down with thc reputation of being  the finest comljinaition of forwards  that has ever played iu'B. C, and  at times they lived unto their repu  taiion, but at other times .they held  on to,'the. |rtll I; fax.too Jnf||; With  a hack division' rquul in strength to  their forwards thc .visitors need have  .. no fear of aiiy team in British Columbia. The back division was rather weak aiitf to tlicrii is largely  ihie the fact that they were defeated.  It is true that; for the greater p������rt  o tho siecond half the L&dysmifch  team were without the services of  their right back who was compelled  to retire from injuries receiVfed at  thc hands of Hazel wood. This was  a hard bjow, for with the score  against them the visitors were only  commencing to show their style of  play and to 'te to play a man  short for .the rest of the game was  too great A handicap and try' as  they would they could not overcome  the lead of the Garrison" WHth the  retirement of Scott, O'Conhell made  a much better showing than he had  done previously, hut it was of no  avail, as the game liad already been  lost.'..'-..  One very bad -habit that was particularly noticeable in the visitors  was tiie fact that tiie players would  claim afoul and would stop and  wait for the whistle, and to this  cause they lost more than one goal.  The' Garrison were not in as good  jfhrm as     they '-have been in, and   thc  ~gamc, was won for the Garrison in  the fust minute of the play, when  from the kiclvoff Mathews secured  and carried down the field, he again  secured after O'Conneil hnd missed  his kick and shot nicely, scoring in  about thirty seconds. This was a  bad beginning, but the visitors stuck  to their work, but they were unable  to prevent the Garrison from scoring  another in the first half, after tho  game had been resumed in the second half,  the Garrison tallied anotih-  at any time during the game, they  vere forced to play ��������� man short* by  Scott being put out of busiius'j.  After this the Garrison had much  ' b-j-leiter of the frame and scored  twice before time was called.-,  The story of thc game is as follows: " - -  The hall w������s Kicked off by Provins,  who sent it to Constable.

The game was refereed by F. Richardson, who acted in the place of S.  Robinson,     who   was   unable to act,  it was the same game they had played against Victoria. This was  quickly seen when Ladysmith forwards gave as pretty an exhibition  of football as could be desired and  scored Iheir firstgoal, and followed  tliis by adding a second in a very  short time. It was then the visitors experienced the hard luck, with  oic efforts have failed   to release thc  seven     imprisoned  underground   men  in  the  burning- portion  of  the Tam-  arao   mine.      Several   members        of  the  rescue' party    sent  in  yesterday  were driven   back   by   gases.    Mining1  aptain   Malms,   was 'in   charge      of  one    party.

From apretty kick by Byrne thc  ball was sent down to the Lady-  goal and .'after Scott had missed the  ball was centered by Hazlewood and  Constable scored.:  The Ladysmith players did not let  up for a moment, and continuing;  Graham hud a fine .opening, which he  missed by slipping. _..,,.,  ' Halftime was called with .the score  standing 2-0 aga nst. the Ladysmith  nlayers.  On changing ends the Ladysmith  team appeared to awaken to tin fact  that they must score if they intended  to win, and they commenced some of  the "work for which their team is famous, and were rewarded by scoring  a goal after a fine piece of work,  Graham1 doing the necessary.

MOSEBY  Mr. Josep'n, Martin, K.C., was actually invited out into the . back  yard of the court house this morn  ing to be one of the principals in  a. bare-knuckle encounter to a finish  says  the Province.  The  invitation was   issued  by    Mr.  W.   C.

About 1.80 the procession' left the  residence i of Mr. and Mrs. William  Joseph, Roberts street, for the  Church of England, the City Band  going > a few yards ahead playing appropriate music. Upon arrival at  the Church yard' the coffin was met  by thc rector., Rev. R. J. Bowen,  andheing conducted  into the building  the beautiful service for the burial  of tiie dead /was commenced. The  eh inch was ��������� packed and more than  half the ino-uriiers were compelled \&  leniain outside. ~  The rendering of the hyinn, "Days  and Moments quickly flying," opened  the service. Thc singing was(b������au-  lifully lead by members of the Welsh  choir, who had places in the chancel,  Mrs. Bowen presiding at the organ  After the reading of the lesson Ithe,  rector gave a touching address. -Although he did     not personally knowl  friends       left     behind    to      moiun  his loss.

Then  the hymn,  "Sun of My  Soul," having been sung, he who, although so far from  home was grieved  for ' by    so many friends whom lu>  had     made during his brief residence  in     Ladysmith,     was carried on his  last, journey.     At the graveside the  remainder     of the service was read,  and after the last prayer was uttered  by      the     officiating clergyman, the  Welsh choir     as a last beautiful tribute to the memory. of the deceased,  sang   that grand old  hymn,     "Lead  Kindly Light.".      The crowds stood  bareheaded as verse after verse of the  anthem   was     rendered  most sympathetically    by~ the choir, lead by tiie  rich" voice of Mrs. '.Trehcarn.

The article referred  to is as follows:  A  cutious  pamphlet on  thc subject  of  "Retrogression-of Memory,  '   or  Thinking Backwards,"  has  been  published  by  the Colonial  Rochas, a former  director  of the Polytechnic  (the  French ..Woolwich)',  who is  endeavoring to prove the truth  of  the theory  of reincarnafon.

Colonel Rochas  caused  inquiries to  be'   made,    and found that a man of  that name had lived, in the'village tho  woman mentioned as far back as 1-812  After    three-quarters  of an hour's  further questioning the woman'   replied in the deep  voice of a       man  called Carterot.

When  the extreme  western  border  of Dakota was colonized there iwas a  lively squabble about what the   new  country should he called.   There were  four commissioners whose duty it was .  to decide on the name,  and  at   thc  board meetings the >vote  for the name  of the county  was always two    and  two, and  public feeling began to run  high.    John Winn  suggested  that the  four ��������� commissioners  should   take  500  white chips each and play a game of  poker  to decide,   the chips  to  represent $5   each.    This   was  agreed to,  and   the  game  commenced   with   thc  entire population on hand.    For two  hours little gain was made, and -ihen  a jack pot     came around,   for which  seventy-three hands were dealt.before  it was opened.    Finally   Commissioner  Edwards opened,it for ?100.   He held  three kings, Judd La Moure held     a  ; zig-zag and the others dropped out.  Edwards drew' one card. Ln Moure  dealt himself five cards, and  the bct-  1 ting commenced.
