Vulonn came, saw and conquer \1 in their baseball mutch with the Led-bridge team at Kckstorm park last night. The result of the score was ii to .'!. The crowd expected to sf>! Vulcan trim the locals even worse, and were unite satisfied. In fact, had (he locals hed a little break in (he luck in the first couple of innings it might easily have been another tale. The famous Webb was on the hill for Vulcan and he lived up to his reputation. I.othbridge garnered about two safeties off his delivery during (lie seven innings, and they came at a time when they were worth record-ng. Roger Lund pitched for Letli-ridge and he wasn't ladling out extra its ell her. Vulcan gathered six off delivery during the game. Vulcan scored two in the first. Iliger was wild and threw eight balls ii\ succession, filling the liases and forcing in a run. In (.lie third the viators added three more on a couple of ills and some boots. It tho fifth after Bond had struck otitic. Gillis pickled the first safety, a Texas leaguer over third. Lund got � life on a boot by Lapp. Lund stoliwhon the catcher's throw went, pastuecond, C.

At the end of the month ho said to tho fanner; "I'm going to quit. You promised mo a steady job nf work." "Well, huvnu't you got one?" was the astonished reply. "No," said tho mini, "there are threo or four bourn every night that I don't have anything tr; do and fool my time way sleoping." An eminent lawyer was once cross-examining a very clever woman, mother of tho plaintiff hi a broach of promise suit, nmi was completely worsted in tho encounter of wits. Be-foro sitting down, however, he turned to tho jury and said: "You saw, gentlemon, that evnn I was but n child in this woman's hands. What must my client have boon?" By this adroit stroke of advocacy he turned his discomfiture into a victory. -Boston Transcript. CLEVER said Miss "1 wish to see a bonnet, Passoo, aged 40.

This v/ill be the fifth game of the week and it is expected that a big crowd will be on deck, now that the stampede is out of the way. It is possible that Myers, a former Stavely pitcher, may be in the city and pitch for the locals. i for the Vulcans last night. Tho score by innings.
