Thus stood  the score at the  fclusion of the first Association foot-  jball game in the B.C. cup competi-  i-*tion     yesterday afternoon.   As the  above score would indicate, the visitors were altogether outclassed by  the home boys, Ladysinith won and  deserved so to do, for in nearly every respect her players were decidedly     superior to those of* Nanaimo,  who     seemed to lack strength, and  staying powers, and whose combina-  |tion was most ragged.  The    play of tho, Ladysmith    men  yesterday was at times exceedingly  pretty and clever, which only tends  to show what can  be accomplished  by,continual practice.   In the match  a week ago,  the combination of  the  men was  very  poor,   whereas  [yesterday, it was in many stages of  'the game almost     perfect.

They  'arrived here Friday on  the steamer  G.eorty,      of the  Austrian   American  line  sailing  from   Trieste   two weeks  ago;   All were residents of Zimtom-  era, in Kief, and they left large families  behind  when   thev  were imprisoned into the Russian Army.  Unexpectedly,  one    morning,  more  than  two months  ago  a body of Cossacks swooped down upon their town  and   at  sabre      points   forced  1,200  men to leave  their  homes and start  for the front.   Two of the men, El-  yias and Moses  Wilenisky,   brothers,  were among the wealthiest men   of  the town, and said that all their pro  perty was confiscated and  their families left in destitution.  They    were  formerly paint  manufacturers,     and  as_ the brothers were  taken      from  their desks  more  than 150 of   their  employees  were  driven  along     with  them.'  Six of them escaped,  and are  among the party which arrived here.  One  of thc  brothers  said  13,000 rubles was taken from his safe by the  Cossacks.  "Time was not given  us  to     say  goqjLbj'e to our families,"  said'Moses- Wilcntsky.     In\other  years   all  men  who had served  for three years  in   the army  or   had   large   families,  were exempt from  the military service'. . The brothers   said   that  after  they had-been taken out cf town   ty  the Cossacks ��������� they were put  in      a  train and started for St. Peters-burg.  Although closely   guarded,      many  :uniped tlnough the car windows, sev  oral  of whom  were  killed.    Several  got  away*  at  railroad  stations,   and  others were shot  as  they fled.   Out  of 1,200, about 200  escaped,  and   of  this     number sixty reached  Trieste  and  obtained   passage" for  America.

There was a fort  twenty miles   from 'Montreal,   where  the  Iroquios  had  made several';    attacks but failed to take "i't..'  On this farm a family, by the name  of Vercherer lhcd. In thc year i(j(J2  it happened that Monsieur de' Ver-  chercrs made a visit to Quebec and  Madame .-de Verchcres made a visit to  Montreal.��������������������������� They left the home in  charge of their daughter, Madeleine  Verchcres, who was fourteen years of  age.."-;  .���������.'���������'���������-;:   .-"-   ��������� *  ...  Of course these -people had  a palisade fort  on part of  their property.  This  had  a palisade  fence  around   it  and at each  cornsr a bastion,* where  soldiers  were stationed    and in  the  centre a big block house,  where ,  a,ll  the    ammunition  was  kept.   Around  this  were four or the houses where  the people lived.   Madeleine had     no  playmates, so she asked the Fontaine  family to come over and spend      the  'day-   She went down  to the ri\er to  see if her  visitors were coming,   Inn  'while she was there; she heard shots  fired.      She-    sent a servant  lo  see  what caused the noise, lie ca-; c bock  running,'and   told  Madeleine  lhe  Iroquios      were coming.    She  screamed  aloud     "Aux . Armes!   aux  amies:"  They all ran  to the block house   for  safety.  .'They only, had,,'two soldieis,  I.a   I'.ontc aiid   Gachet.    When   Madeleine .went  into.'the block hous3    she  found these two soldiers with alight  ed match, .ready to blow up the place  as" soon as the Iroquios would enter.  She called them cowards and took the  match     from  them  and  put  it  out.  Madeleine had     two brothers,  Louis  and   Alexander,  whom  she  stationed  at    the gate     with'two more  men.  However, she got The cannon  to go  off.    This   made  the   Iroquios   think  that' there "was a big .crowd of people  in the palisade.   She managed to get  the Fontaine family up in safely.  One of the prisoners got away, fled  to Montreal, and told the people.  They.immediately..sent a good soldier  to them.  This seige lasted one week and    at  last  the  Iroquios   withdrew,   taking  with them about twenty prisoners.  When thc mother and   father came  home they gave much praise to their  daughter  Madeleine who had  fought  so bravely.  TICKET   OFFICE  and  Yates  St*;.,  Cor.   Government  Victoria, B.
