to witness the concluding cffoits that
are  to  decide  the  hard  lought   Held,
buch being the character ot the game,
it is1 bcmewhat surprising that it ic-
manied so long confined to Scotland,
it is  certainly a game  that  Kriglish-
men   would   enjoy   were     it     better
known amongst them;  but it is only
in re-cent years that it has been seen
south of the Tweed.    If i am correctly informed, almost the first man  to
introduce  it   to   Kngland    -'.'as-     .Mr.
f'Anson   (of  I'hng  Bonny and  Jilair
Athol   fame;,  who,  when   he  settled
at Maltoii, took a few pairs of stones
with   hirn,  and,  as  occasion  offered,
indulged in the practice of thi* game
with  some  of  his slud  grooms v/ho
had seen it in Scotland.    Since then
a regular club has been started there,
and I was glad to notice    from   last
week's  "Bell"  that  thc  veteran,  Mr.
I'Anson,  was   still   able   to   take   his
part,  and  carry  out  his  broom  as  a
victorious   skip.     From   Malton   the
game has radiated, ancl there arc now
clubs in  many of thc leading York-
none   bcltci      1   have   played'with   a
pan   of  these  for. sixteen  yeais,  and
thcyjaie now as-good as cvci.    Thc
beautiful  Aboidecn  gianite  has  been
called  mlo use,,and  m   Ihe manufac-
tiue of these a special polish has been
used ..that, combined with the cliarac-
tei  of{ the stone llsclf,  renders  them
invaluable   for   wel   ice;   indeed   they
appear to swim, tin ough  it, but they
aic'not so well adapted for hard, tinkling ice, being too easily moved, and
lequiiuig an cxtia  fine twist lo play
them.    A  green  marble  comes  from
Cncf,  which  is  veiy'dense,  but,  like
the Abcideen stone, it is not so good
foi  a fine d iy     In addition to these,
.eveiy   district   pioduces   a   whim   01
gianite that has'been tried, but none
of  them  have   the'  widespread  popu-
'lanty  of    these  I  have    mentioned.
Stones are usually now made with a
double   bottom,   having   a   steel   pin
through the ccnlic, on which, by the
aid'of  a  screw   the  handle  is  Fixed.
The u<*e of thc double bottom is to
give the player the choice oF a broad
��� >r  narrow  sin Face,   the   broad   being
laken on a day when Ihe ice is keen,
and   the  narrow  when   theie  is  dan-
gci  of snow, water or any other impediment.    My  e-cpciiencc,  however,
i*  decidedly averse to  changing bottoms,  a  4   1-2  inch,  with   the  centre
just the veiy least concave, so as to
pi event it running on the whole surface, being   a bottom  useful    in  all
slates  of the  ice,  and  not so  apt to
cause   thc   player   to  lose  confidence
if, having staited with his broad bottom, he finds a change in the weather
taxes his    strength  in    putting    the
stones  up     If the bioad bottom  be
taken, and  lhe  player is in  the habit
of  twisting   (of   which   more   hereafter),  Ihe  stone  makes  far too  great
a  curve  in  its   progress   to   the  tee,
and is, moveover, very liable to catch
any dirt, hairs, or    broom    that may
be lying unseen  on the ice.    A few
years ago, in the club to which I belong,   most    extensive     experiments
were carried on with a view not only
to find   the best kind  of stone, but
also the style and size of bottom for
it, the result    being in favor of the
Burnocks, with  a  bottom such as I
have described.
Having noticed  the stones,  I will
next proceed to describe
holes, which pi events ice forming mi
it." and gives-a'fiim and sure footing.
Being made'of sheet iion it icsts

Investigation' Shows' Necessity,
of Isolation Ward.-i1,.,
In consequence oi complaints made
leg.uding tlie death of a child of Mr.
I.ljsaght, of Bcaveimouth, who had
li'-cn Kiiiscd admittance to. the hospital, the boniii requested JUr.'�� Fng.in
to hold nn investigation, and he did
so on Tuesday. The case .was diph-
theiia, and being one of the -most
dangctous' of contagious diseases the
hospital authorities could not admit
it. The child "us taken tothe hotel
but when the natuic of the illness
tt.is known it cuuld'not be permitted
to lemain theie'and was placed in a
tent As a lesult of this neglected
condition the child died. '-
The result'of the investigation was
that Di Pagan admitted an 'isolation
hospital, w Inch the hospital authorities have been agitating for Uevelstoke
foi some*' time, was an absolute necessity and he would recommend the
government tocoopeuite with the city
in pioviding it without delay'.'      ���
It was also pointed out I that' owing
to the way in which the-government
Iind shirked its duty in the tieatment
of isolation cases fiom outsider'points
hitlieuo and attempted ' to put the
cost oil the city, it had become neces-

"JIv mother has been a snffeier for
many years from rheumatism," says
W. JI.iHowaid of Husband. Pennsylvania. "At times she was unable to
move at all, while at rail times walking wasjuiinful. I piesented her with
a bottle of Cliambei Iain's Pain Balm
and after a few applications she decided it was the most wonderful pain
lelicver she had ever tried, in fact, she
is'never without it now and is at nil
times able to ,walk. -' An occasional
application ofPain Balm keeps away
the pain 'that she was formerly
troubled with." For' sale by

Portcrville, Oilifoinia. Them is no
doubt ,'iiiout it- being the best. No
other will cine a cold so quickly. No
other is so suit a pirventive of pneumonia. So other is so plf-'i-'ant and
safe to take. These arc good reasons
why it should be prcfoncd to any
other. The fact is that few people
are satisfied wilh any other after having once used this remedy. For sale
