The play was hard owing to the
wind that was blowing, the sandy
flat was continually visited by gusts
of wind which Blew sand about in
clouds,'hampering the players on
both sides. The score was thirteen
to eleven in favour of our team.
The boys had a long wait for the
return boat'from Penticton, which
arrived about one o'clock in the
morning, nevertheless they were
awake enough to raise a' cheer as
the "Okanagan' steamed towards
the Summerland landing.'

' Mr. Pridham remarked that he thought
the deal fair and square and did not see
why a mutual agreement with regard to
sale would affect the council. His idea
was that if the land, when sold, realised
over $7,000 the money over that amount
should be divided. He understood the
council would run it for sports, and eventually the A. & T. were only getting $2,900
and one weeks use of the grounds a year.
He was unable to understand why the
sale could not be a joint agreement.
Several words were thrown about and a
general argument ensued, it being remarked that if the A. & T. still held the
grounds it was very likely not to improve,
but if the city took it over it was likely to
become a boon to the city in ten years.
Mayor DeHart suggested that it was
useless for the A. fit T. to come - forward
without first having elected a deputation
to make definite plans ,with the council
and would «_ the A. _ T. to gather that
deputation together on Saturday so as to
attend on the council the following Monday. As far aa Tie could see the present
agreement to lease a portion of the park
was a good straightforward . one and one
that would be  beneficial  to  the A. & T.
- They could have the new building' fitted
up with electric light and hold_ shows at
night," while the A. _ T. grounds. could
be leased for the races during the day.
He had noticed that the general inclination at shows was to come late and make
straight for the grand stand, several people
never visiting the exhibits at all. If a
•how -_• held in the two places people
could come during" the afternoon and see
the races, and afterwards go to a well
lighted   hall  in  the  evening  to  see  the
' exhibits.
Mr. Raymer wished to know what rental would be charged fo'r the use of the A.
& T. grounds atr the end of the twenty
years lease. He suggested one dollar | a
year. - '
Mayor DeHart  wished   to  know  what
- the city benefited by it.
Mr. Raymer said the city benefitted by
letting it out as an athletic ground.
Mr. Crowley remarked that nobody had
any right to make any agreement, except
the eight clause agreement, and the city
council turned that down.
Aid. Bailey was of the opinion that the
trustees turned that down.
Mr. Raymer thought it best for the A.
&-T. to k_-n the ground.

he entered his father s > business, and was . ....
subsequently elected'to represent South'
Lambert in Parliament. In 1656 he managed to forge a deed of gift purporting to
to be signed by his father, which conveyed
to him certain lands at Kingston. On the
strength of this document, he obtained a
mortgage of $35,000. The following year
his father died, leaving valuable property
to his other son, Richard, William appeared
with another will, supposed to be signed
later than the one Richard held, and by
this means managed to get from $1,000,000
to $1,500,000. He speedily disposed of it
to various parties living in a wildly extravagant style, and when all was blown in
calmly admitted the forgery to his brother
at the courts.      William admitted that he

Destroyer Sunk.
Almost cut in two, the destroyer'Black-
water sunk in the Channel, stern first. The
crew who remained orderly all the time
were transferred ' to the scout Forward.
The cause of the mishap can be put down
to a dense fog, the Blackwater was at the.
time cruising with the second destroyer
flotilla, and,was on^he way from Portland
to the Firth of Forth, when she met the
"Hero" of Bristol, off Dungeness. Very
little damage was done to the latter boat,
her bow only being stove in, and she was
able to carry her passengers and crew
safely to shore. /The crew of ^he BJack-
water took passage in the Forward by
way of Sheerness. . The Blackwater is a

tons and has a speed of about 25 knots/

Scalded School Children.
Stanford Place, Council,School, Hull,
Was the scene, of a general hot water bath
just lately. The teacher and seven .children being badly scalded by the , bursting
of the hot water nipes. Tbe • explosion
took place in the(infants classroom where
some „a_tty, children were- assembled.
There wasaternble report and streams
of hot water rose, almost to the ceiling.
The teacher who was near-thc-pipe-was-
knocked over and when the head mistress
rushed in she ,,was endeavoring to open 1
the door to let the children out. , Passers-
by gave a hand and the children were
quickly removed,from the premises and
scalds attended to. The only, dangerous
j&alding case is that of the teacher who
was right in the line of fire. She refused
tb leave the,room until she was sure all
the children were outside and safe.

The Bane o. Liquor Advertisements
In _e_-paper_—Misleading"
" "• Statement- and Their
Mr. Dooley' has recently given us some
exactterminology to apply to the beer and
whiskey advertisement with"'"which the
newspapers "knife the public," "for blood
money, trust money, hush money' any
money at all' just so it is money.
He calls' them "stiletto, ads,"- and says
that'if the saloon must be taxed to pay the
bills their liquor imposes' on the public,
the newspapers that help sell the liquor
through; their columns should pay their
share to the tune of about $500,000 apiece.
The term "stiletto ad" is particularly
appropriate, for like the stiletto, it stabs in
the dark the unprepared aud defenceless.
.' The newspaper that prints stiletto ad
enters into conspiracy with the offender,
for it keeps the public in the dark by
refusing; .to print the refutations science
brings to the   liquor dealer's* false claims.
The stiletto ad thrusts before the reader
the statements that beer makes rich, red
blood, and the newspaper manager will
not enable the victim to defend himself
with the knowledge that exact labaratory
experiments, such as those of Professor
Latinen, of Helsingsors, have demonstrated
that in the case of animals the equivalent of
half a teaspoonful of alcohol a day—the
proportion furnished by one-half pint of3J
per cent, beer to a man weighine 150
pounds—injures the red corpuscles and
reduces their oxygen-carrying power.
The stiletto ad tells the newspaper reader
that beer is "nch in food values." If we
bought milk that yielded but four or five
parts of true stuff in a hundred we should
not consider it very "rich." No more than
this is contained in any "pdre ' beer, and
to get that one must take a similar quantity
of alcohol, a narcotic poison. For money
the newspaper prints the hoax and" holds
back the'truth.      „ t
The stiletto ad stabs at the American
home with the plea, "Drink it(beer)at
table and   have   your wife drink it. too."

increase of drinking women and defective,
neglected children. But the newspaper
witholds the warning'this knowledge would
give, and for money lets the liquor dealer
in upon the bulwarks of the nation.
The'stiletto ad  asserts that in  countries
where most beer is intemperance is rarest.
This is quite 'untrue. Belgium has the
largest per capita consumption of beer of
any country' in Europe, In 1897, <he
Belgium prime minister, M.LeJeune, said
publicly, "With us in Belgium alcohol
produces dreadful ravages." England ranks
second in the consumption of beer, and
her drunkenness is causing universal alarm
throughout the country., .Germany stands
third in per capita consumption of alcoholic
drinks. A member of the German, Reichstag said recently that there are 11,900
p'crsons, in the hospitals suffering from
delirium tremens., i Professor Pettenkofer
the nqted Bavarian hygienist, said that the
rapid increase,.in the consumption of
alcoholic liquors had, dispelled\the hope
that an increased use of beer woyld bring
about a corresponding decrease in the
amount -f whiskey,used. The smaller
percentage.of alcohol,in beers' is counterbalanced by the greater amounts drunk,
'" It should perhaps be noted here that the
nineteenth century conception of intemper-
incCno logger'suffice* for the'tWehtieth
century. Intoxication fwas' then ''quite
generally Held"t- denote'the limit where
visible harm begins."' Neither that nor the
amount -which" without'l__xicating injures
a man's liver and heart U now taken as the
limit. The 20th,'century standard fpr in-
temperance or alcoholisrh is the quantity'
that increases a man Vsick days, reduces hit-'
money-earning ' power, and ' stamps '
mediocrity or d.geWeration upon"; his

Manitoba^ College Veterans Return-
Several changes are to take place in the
staff of the Manitoba Colleges at the close
of the present term. There will be involved by the retirement of Rev. Dr. Hart
and the Rev. Dr. Bryce who are both
Veteran professors.
The news'of the retirement of Dr. Bryce
will be-received with regret' by all who
know him, ■ he was the founder of < the
college 40 years ago, and it is owing to
advanced years that he * has sent in this
resignation; During his life at the College
hfe has published several books best known
of which are "A short history of the Canadian people" and "Manitoba, its infancy,
"growth and present conditions."

Does Milk _ Coio.    '
A strange case of animal cunning comes
from New Westminster, and solves the
mystery of the disappearance of a family's
milk supply before it was taken ^from the
cow. The animal which had failed to
give its usual milk" supply was watched
and it was found that a number of dogs
in the neighborhood had been milking her
during the day when she was in pasture.
During the operation the cow would stand
quite calm, and other dogs were standing
by taking a lpsson from those that had
already>learned. It is believed that jf the
mystery had not been solved it wou^d not
have been long before the animal was
milked completely dry each day by the

' - Canada's'Grain.Production.
A statement, has been forwarded to
Lord 'Strathcona giving Canada'• crop
production as follows. Total yield 474.-
575,855 bushels. Wheat 126,795,127 bush-
els. wheat production west of' great lakes
105,613,454, of which more than 50 per
cent, was grown in Saskatchewan. ■ It is
estimated that 14,672,254 bushels of wheat
is already held by farmers. ,   u •
by the single line was raised from a depth
of 250ft. without making a half-turn in its
ascent   No guide  rope   was  necessary.
, In the construction of this rope an inner
series , of wire strands is wound in one
direction over a core, and an outer series
of wire strands is wound in the opposite
direction about the inner series as a core.
The wires which make up each of the
individual inner strands are twisted in the
same direction as the lay of the strand,but
in the outer strands .the individual wires
are laid in opposite directions to the lay of
the strands.
The number of strands required for the
second or outer layer must,'ai course, be
greater, than the number of strands in the
inner layer. For this reason the inner layer
has the wires as well as the strands all laid
in one, direction as described thereby
giving them a tendency to untwist very
much faster than if they were twisted in the
direction opposite to the lay of the strands.
' The wires in the outer layer, being laid
in an opposite,direction  to the lay of the
■    .     .     «  < k ■ i 1 .'J     A ' '
strands, do not tend   to untwist as fast as
the inner layer.'   The. strands in the'outer
layer, howeve. counteract the tendency of
untwisting the rope aa' a whole.   When a
weight ia applied to' the end oi the   rope
the greater number strands of tKe outer
layer  has a r tendency  tountvriatin  one
direction, whereas the fewer strands of the
inner layer have a tendency to untwist very
rriuchi faster in the opposite direction, and
it is found in practice that these two actions
almost balance each other.,  -'

The Mendicant.
There  are  those   who  ascribe  tbe
word "mendicant" to the silly appell.i-
-tion put forth as a conundrum, meaning a poor wretch beyond the power of
.mending.   But something very close to
the term was in use as long ago us
when Chaucer wrote his "Canterbury
Tales."    In  the  "Sompnoure's Tale"
this occurs:
Therefore we "mendlanta,' we s'ely freres.
Bee wedded to poverte and continence. -
To  charitee,   bumblesse  and   abstinence.
The "sompnoure" of Chaucer was, of
course, a summoner, or apparitor, and
a person ot low estate, and here we
have, it is believed, _ the origin of the
word, which came into common employment later.
