It'is not  often that a Canadian village of any  si/.c is found but that there are football, lacrosse, baseball or other team  jeady and anxious to do their neighboring town.    It     helps to  develop  young men and does them good mentally as     wcll- as physically.      The  young man who is enthusiastic about  sports "-for the pui'2 love of sports  is  generally a    pretty well balanced fellow and a favorite in the community.  There is, perhaps, too much tendency to     merge    the uiuatenr into the  ��������� semi-professional' s ranks,  for  as  the  term    professional' i.s   (al'*~-n  and   intended,     itis     not easy for a lot of  speedy    amateurs to keep away from  challenges   and'defys' in Which money  is a prominent factor.  There.is,     in some of     the   cities  the    Dominion,     and Vancouver and  Westminster   arc examples, too 'much  (bitterness    in thc rivalry with whit h  games      are      played.   The  national  game,     _*trosse,--has been, owing  to  the-    bitter spirit prevailing between  those two cities,     played'very'.little  for the     past two   years, and never  will, it is.now'feared, again reach its  old position,    in this province at any  ra.te, for both Vancouver .and Victoria are now putting in the field teams  of professional  base-bail  players, and-  neither city     can, well do more than  support   the one game.   So lovs.rs of  the good game lacrosse may about as  well    make up     their minds that at  least     for a   term of years base-ball  will be the   game.   Lacrosse, may revive again, but it is hardly likely the  inspiriting sight will again be seen of  the Westminster    and Vancouver veterans crossing sticks, as they have so  often . done, ��������� before thousands of people.���������  THE     HEROINE OF  CASTLE  DANGEROUS.  Written by Jeannie Michie, Age 12,  Division 2.  . In early days the settlers of Canada had hard times, for the Iroquois  were always roaming about the forest trying in some way to kill them.  Monsieure Verchcres was a commander of a very large fort a few miles  below Montreal. It happened one  ���������day that the seignor and his wife had  gone away on a visit, and Madeline,  a little girl of about fourteen years  of a&e was left in charge of her father's fort.  Madeline, having no playmates and  feeling lonely, asked the Fontaine  family to come and visit her...While  she was going to meet them she  heard the sound of a gun and as'*ed  the servant'������������������ to go and see what it  was. He came hack running and told  her to run for the Iroquois were com  ing. She ran to the gates and clos-  of them crying as she ran, Aux Arme  Aux Annex! She went over to the  block house, where she found the two  soldiers La Bontc and 'Cachet hiding  behind Lhc barrels with matches lit  ready to blow everything up  as the Irocjluois entered. The brave  little 'girl asked them what they were  going to do and they told. her. She  called them cowards, forcing them  into the fort, telling them they were  to help, 'lhe Indians, no.t knowing  how few were inthe fort,'kept away  for some time. Madeline then ordered that a cannon should he litcd  in order to make lhe enemies believe  Lite fort as strongly held. In the afternoon Madeline saw ,i boat coming up the river with the Kontaine  f.uiiily. Kearing they would Ic killed  she asked 1 be two soldiers, la Bonte  and Galchef. to go down to the river  to fell them what had happened, bill  as neither of them would venture  out Madeline bravely* determined lo  down to the landing place hers:>lf and  managed to get them up to the  foot in safely Night came down cold  and stormy, and'the savaf.es were  heard prowling around t.he fort.  There was no sleep or rest for anv-  one. When daylight came it brought,  fresh courage to Madeline. The siege  was kept- up for a week. At Inst the  Iroquois, fearing they could not take  the fort, withdrew. When her father  and mother, returned and found what  had happened Madeline received much  praise for being so  brave.
