He was pounded.for ten safe hits, but they were all singles. He struck out nine meni nnd let but one single man walk.' It will..bevseeu from this that he was onr.the .job, and twirled a tight game.

Neither of tttynss have been done, and at yes'ter'day's meeting of the council some enquiries weie made as to why the) had not been carried out. If'then came-'out that neither the. scales nor the chute had arrived, although they had'oSfen ordeied from Winnipeg some four months ago The city storekeeper will ;ba, asked to huirj 'them along-especiallj the sqales which will bo needed, within a couple of.months when the start to bring in their loads of produce .The" of govern- ment which is to be .inaugurated when the new charter is granted by. tbe provincial legislature, is almost as slo'w in the scales are in coming The city solicitor will :be asked to the -necessary papers to be presented to the legis- lature at -as early a date ns possible in order that the necessary, advertle ing may be done in time.

In..-regard to the former the association wilt be flnsneied that the matter of bettor nitration is now under consideration by'the: city en- gineer.
