Even with the limited  sealing capacity, there is more than  $CO,000-nct profit in the sale of  scat.?, and that amount is divided,  equally between the two teams, a  custom which was established by  Yale after the strained relations between the- two colleges were amicably adjusted. .   ,,  Harvard and Yale each received a j  net profit of more than $31,000 ; from  the fcame a Cambridge two years  ago.-.', The seating capacity at that  time was 38,000, and for each seat  there were $2 in the haads of the  treasurer of the Athletic Association:  The heavy expenses that year deducted considerably from the gross'  receipts. At Yale a year ago the re- \  ceipts, after all the preliminary, expenses' were paid, amounted to more,  than $56,000..

Tt depends whether you  are located in the valleys ofthe  mountains, or high up the mountains  or on the plams. or on ihe is-ands or  mi :: c r-os 1, as to. the temper 1-  l"i": ;,o'i come in contact With.  "���������Vancouver     Island, in the Pacific'  Ocean,   occupies  somewhat  the  same  position  in reialipn   to the  American  Continent that Great Bnilain. in the  Atlantic,     does t0 Europe; lying between nearly     the same parallels  of  larfatude. The temperatures conespor.^  very closely ^.w-IIil   ilii-se     found  in  parts of     England;  the" summers are  iq-uite as    long, and severe frost-vciy  seldom occurs. " Crossing the straits  of Georgia t0 the mainland and coiir n  s dering  the   country     south  of the  Canadian Pacific Railway we are still  in latitudes corresponding to',tlie southern      ban of   - England.     We here  find a warm     summer, and a wmtoc  J increasing in  severity  as  we  ascend  thc Fraser valley and reach the higher levels.        To the eastward of the  Coast    Range in     the Yaic and West  Kootenay districts the climate is dis-'  tinctiy     different; the    summers are  warmer .md     tlie winters are colder,  and the rainfall  rather scant;  bright  dry weather is'the rule.   The cold  of  winter is. however, scarcely ever   severe;* and the hottest days of summen  are rendered     pleasant from the facti  that   the air :s     dry and the mghti  are cool.  '' '  At   the census of 1901, the popular  tion  was  only 178,657 .'souls,   including 18.000 Chinese and Japanese, andt  twenty-five thousand Indians, eo that  it will %p     seen that the white popu-      '  lation of     135,000  is aitogethennsig-,  m'/icant in    comparison with the '-ter-.   ,  r tory to     tie developed.     Less than  one   per cent of ths     aceragehas yet  been developed as farms or lots.   The  area  of     improved     land was given '  as but 57,881 acres. v     ,  Mining hasi had from tlie first a  mqst conspicuous part in the indus.  tries of^ this- province.

It will     thus be seen thati there is   ,  no limit     to     the possibilities of this     "  province, and    especially the building  up of North     Vancouver, when popu-     -  lation arrives to develop it.

Base ]  ball, too,  is self-supporting,-but the  majority  of the other sports      are  continually, drawing on the  treasury  from one end of  the season to      the;  other,  and giving in  return  osly     a.  small amount   which   those   directly  interested see fit to subscribe.    Rowing     is one of  the heaviest  burdens  financially on the larger college.  The $  best coaches must be secured,   shells j|  built, a training  table provided,  sa\d  maay other requisites must be -taken, i  care of. ������  With more than 40 members of the  college in  the  football  squad,       the  cost of providing coaches, whose aggregate  expense  for      football alone  to  the Athletic  Association  is more  than $10,000, is only one of Iho pnany'  items which must be deducted  from  the annual receipts.   Thc services of  medical  directors,   the  corps   of rutr  bers  to rub down the  players    after  each practice and regular n-amc,  the  expenses of a training- table, and the  cost   of  all  material,   including  football suits, balls, etc., must be payed  for.    While the   output   has  been exceedingly large in years gone by, the  Graduate Committee  of  the Athletic  Association  has   urged   the  greatest  economy.    The members of the committee do not want to lie too close,  in making    expenditures' when they)'  are  necessary,  but they  want  to secure only what is hecessary.  The  athletic   association of       any  large university must almost be      a  financial   institution  in   itself,    especially  where almost  $200,000  is   annually  taken  in  and  expended.    Men ���������  who  have had some experience       in  business  affairs  must necessarily  aid  the younger students, as there is always'danger of having/money squandered where there is so much money  coming- in   and  going   out all       the  time.
