The Magrath bas&et ball team has exhibited grit thattew teams possess and are to be highly congratulated for their ati'ck-to-ltlveness, which a. great many teams lack. Where is there a team that would go down in defeat, time after time; before teams which have beep, in the'field for years, and come .back every time more determin-- ed,-than ever before? 1 This is a characteristic of the people of the Garden, City and there Is no doubt hut that this- persistence �will be rewarded., The juniors of Magrath have .been more fortunate than the seniors, having won every game but one, and.with a little praotlce will give*the Stirling ibuncu a lively time the next Mine. they meet.

Bert Anderson was referee and gave perfect satisfaction, and several � times'. caught Raymond foul pitcher, at his game. There are tricks in all trades and games, but the follow who knotyu to turn the tricks has a keen enough eye to catch othern at them. Juniors The.Magrath Juniors piled up one more victory on Tiw�day �� pight, winning over the Rayntdpd squad by a score of 13 to 21. Tljey set the seniors a pace that i* hard to follow.

PellaU has residence at 559 Shepjuiirnr: to ao New York capitalist name is not divulged.' The price received was stated to be approximately $75,000. To bUy the property and build the house and stable cost, $ 125,-000, Every brick was imported and Cost 15 cents eacn, the interior woodwork and many of the decorative effects were imported from various phrts of Europe. .Forborne time Sir Henry has been building a new residence on "Wells Hills,"' two miles north from Toronto Bay, and about a mile west of Yonge street, on the highest piece of ground in Toronto. The marvels of this new home would take up columns of description. He first built the stables, which are said to be unapproached in this country and to have few equals in the old world. The horses' stalls rather resemble: drawing rooms. Among the features of the house of which the masonry work is now well on towards completion, are the extraordinary thickness of the walls and the unusual space-four feet-between the ceiling of one room ' and the floor of the room above. An organ to cost $30,000 will be installed in the hoilse aml^ almost every room will -be ornamented by an ancient fire placed A collection of these made in Europe completely (ills a large room and is guarded day and night. A palace, rather than a house, is the appropriate name for this edifice. Estimates of its probable cost greatly vary. It has been variously stated that the stables cost $250,000 to $500,000.
