NEW RULES
A SUCCESS
The Spokane Chronicle contains
the following editorial:
The college student iran now afford
to devote a lair porl ion ol his time
to studies. Tlie football season is
over. Tho great college game has
survived another year against the
cries ol those ,who would kick It of]
theftolltue campus. It shows strong-,
er this season than at the end ol
last, and, the cries against the brutality of tho giUne are not nearly us
loud as a year ago.
Thia must be construed to mean
that the new game has met wiUi lavor. It must have removed many of
the brutal points ol the contest, or
the cries against It would he heard
again. It is pleasing to Kioto that
the American game ot foothill is
likely, to stay, principally heeauso it
is truly American, and then again
because there are so many good
points to tlie contest.
Hut there Is more to It Mian the
mere survival of thermic. It demonstrates that thc rules committee
could have changed the rules long
ago, Hut that its'members (ailed to

provide (or the salety ol the players

in humanity which compelled the

started a discussion which was fast
and iuterest»K ior some time:
To The Muyor and Ulileiiiicn:
Gentleman:—I wish to call your attention to Uio dire necessity of improving that part of Builon-Vowcll

Yours truly,
HARRY    KAY.
Upon Ihe conclusion of Ihe reading
of the above. Aid.. Patterson started
the bull rolling by staling that he
thought the road mentioned hy sir.
Kay needed repairs much worse than
High street, where a gnng of men
are al present working. He tli.ufciiiil
it would be a great deal bettor to
fix plaet'.s like the one iiieirlioned in
the letter than to attempt lo improve a street which was already
|i.rss.i|jfV for teams. It would he a
great deal ()'Mer for the poople ri
this were done.
Aid. fron was on his feet belore
the previous speakfl had lesunnnl Iris
chair, and replied rather forcibly t.i
Aid. Patterson's remarks, He could
not see why there was so much kick
nig about iepalrlng High Street. As
everyone knew tlie street in its present condition was ,inipassnjt,li' lor a
team. II one attempted lo go down
it, it was,necessary for the driver
to lock but li wheels, .nisi tire horses
were nearly standing on Iheit heads

caso ii was mipoas^btlc todo Ihis,
and the next hcsl thing todo, In Ins
opinion, was lo repair the centra ol
Ihc city. Not only was lli|?li street,
benelKtlng by the work, but the Esplanade was also iH'mg gravelled
the gravel from High Street being
duni|icd there, and levelling iln. latter up.

history of the city there has been
scarcely any money spent on Iheso
streets wltb the exception of Roberts street, and I think it is about

Acl ing Mayor Cumpboll hroku
into the discussion ior thc first time
remarking that it was his opinion |
thnt Gttitiurc street should receive
attention. It was a nice littlu
street, and hd direct to thc station.
II certainly needed grading badly,
and should lie attended to. Last
year High strrset hu,l received attention.
Yes, the    attention we    gave it ,
ourselves," replied Aid. lieu, "what
work    was    done was done by   the
ones living, on High street,.    We got
t aud did it ourselves."
Milonnan Patterson referred  luck
to the letter     which had   been   the j
origin ol tire    discussion, und moved
that it <» referred to thc street com- j
mittee and thc request attended to.
Alderman    Uren expressed himself
as perfectly agreeable that the work
be done, providing there was money
enough un  hand to do it.    HoweverV |
he again   voiced his views rcgurding

town    in preference to other streets

Mere Aid. Tha expressed his views
Ile thought there was a great deal
ol "kicking" by thc people becausa
ihis work was being done on streets
which, while perhaps not boulevards
were still passable and could get along until next year as Uley wcro, or
until such a time as streets which
aro at present imp.issajhilc ior pedes-
in.iiis arc put into Bonio kind of

BRIEF HISTORY-OF
GAME OF BASKETBALL.
Uaskel ball, invented by Dr. James Wtalsmith, vice athletic director
ol the Y.M.C.A. ol Denver, und first
played by thc training school team
ol the Springfield (Mass.) Y.M.C.A.
in 1891, has long since passed the
stage in which it was met with
.jc-ers and laughter, and !ws successfully filled the'invtoitofs Idea'in
working out the sport—that of fill
ing up the gap which came between
the lootball season and tlic spring
baseball season, and now strands as
one ol the recognized sports, played
alike by the Y.M.C.A.'8 universities
schools and athletic chilis, and can
lie said to[l*c the best winter sport
now in existence.
Thc game has undergone radii.I
oluuirries and only ftiitikiiiieiit.il piin-
ciples of the game played luy the
Spr riisratreld learn remain. The contest, as it wns at first ulaycd, required nine men on one side—three
centres, three forwards and three
backs-end these rules were kept in
force lor the first lour years the
game was in existence, when the
number of players on each side was
cut to seven, dropping one tot ward
and one guard, nnd two years later
in IRII7, the loam was cut to Sivo
men, two forwards, one center and
two guards, the "feeding" center Hieing omitted.
The game, as it  was played even
' 'Peruna I can recommend as a very good medicine. It is an excellent strengthening tonic, Md ft
Is also an efficacious cure for the almost unhrersal
complaint of catarrh. "—Gonxalo De Quesada.
Mr. Will A. Hoflmon, Haguratowu,
IU., writes:
"I gladly give my testimonial wltb
tbe thousands of others who have been
cured by tho use of Peruna..
••/ had catarrh ot the head and
throat. I took cold easily and wit
diss)-headed.
••I was all rundown and hardly able
to work at all when I began using
Peruna. .     .   .
"But, now, after using It about six
months I am well end strong."
There U no remedy in (be world
which has proven so popular for catarrh
as reruns., It has been rued for more
than thirty years and cored thousands
of cisei as proven by our testimonials.

It. Is in surveying the pictures up-

that tlie historian finds much of interest connected with the life and
manners of a country. Not only do
tlicy represent great men of certain
periods, but ovate that are prominent in national annals.
This is fjartilcularly truo of Fiance,
where cards were horn and. where
tlicy have heen mado, pictorially, to
preserve much of thc history ol the

While there Is nothing authentic
about it, the story generally believed regarding the origin of cards is
that they wore devised n(||.it the latter part ol thc fourteenth century

of cards us being made lor the Duke

Is related that at Marseilles, when
a man, angered over .gaming losses,

A J1UNOKY SALMON.
I bad Ihc fallowing story from a
Montreal gentleman and I lielieve it
to be alnolutcly authentic, says a
writer In Country Gentleman. He
w.is Ashing Ifor salmon in one ol the
streams tliat run Into the Oull ol
St. Lawrence. His friend, who know
the river well, pointed to a spot on
the op;iosite bank where "a salmon
ought to lie." and then crossed tlle
stream a little higher up, with a desire to li.ivu a peep over the oilge ol
the bunk to verily .his belief.
As he made his way through somo
hushes on thc other side it would
seem that a oast wound around his
hatigot loosoned. He approached.the
spot iiiiil, lying prone, cautiously
peered over if' edge ol the hunk. In
so doing n dy on the loose cast ot
the hat gonlly touched the water,
when immediately a salmon united it
with a rush up stream, carrying
hook and hat.
