ond qutto bears out Sir Henry

than tho present strike. It seems now
to lie a question of how long tlio dock

money, while on the other hand tho
owners' losses must run Into enormous
sums. Thu radical newspapers of
Austrnlla and Now Zealand describe the
continuation of tho strike as midoess

The Interest In foot ball In this city
Is rapidly increasing, nnd tho sport
has becomo thoroughly established ns
the distinctive autumnal recreation of n
large part of the sport-loving public.
Last year tho game became popular, and
Ibis season It promises to be decidedly
more so. Nearly every day for the past
wrck thero has been a game that has
attracted n largo number of persons.
The great game at Capitol Park next
Friday between the University of Penn
sylvania and University of Virginia
bids fair to be quite a society event.
Already the advance shIo of seats has
bicn quite large, and the outlook for a

that the coutest Is not a mere exhibi

ami oce that 111 go on record as such,
mikiB It doubly attractive and interest
Irg. Thus far this season the Penntyl
tania has suffered but one defeat, and
that at the hands of Princeton, while
He ireinla team has won evcrv game
In which It has participated. On the
game nt Capitol Park will depend the
championship of the Middle States, and
both teams will do their utmost to win
the coveted title.
Uotli bave many excellent players In
their ranks, some of whom have
decidedly more than a mere local repu
tation. It promisee to be one of the
most lotetestlng and closely contested
games that has ever taken place In this
vicinity owing to tbe rivalry existing
between tho two. Iloth are nearly
tqually matched and Lence will be
warmly c- ntetted.
This afttrooon the Columbia Athletic
team will meti the eleven from Swarth

Interesting game will no doubt result.
Yesterday the Columbia Athletic
team xent over to Georgetown to ptay
tbe college team. The game was a
warm on, and, as both shies were
equally matched, they retorted to de
vices not down in tbe book of rules.
Fouls were plentiful and there were two
or three little scrimmages during the
progress of tbe game. Finally It broke
up In a row, the Columblas leaving the
grounds at the termination of tbe first

wife of Amatlee Qanthler, a farmer
of St. Laurent. It was thought she
bad been burned. Karly yestenhy
morning Oaulhler, acrompanlel by a
nt'lghl'or, was coming Into town with a
wagon hmd of produce when they saw
a woman ljlnir beside the road. They
ronectl her and asked her what she was
thMt there. She said she was hunting
for the road to St. Laurent ami had
traveled for many weeks, mentioning
places she had visited In lower Quebec,
0 miles from Montreal.
Oaulhler aked her lo get Into his
wagon and he would drive her to a
hotel further on As she stepped Into
the Wagon, he Hashed his lantern Into
her face ami dropped it with an exclama
tion almost of terror. The woman lie
had found waa his wlfe.who he supposed
was dead, and whom he had not seen
fcr over eighteen months. They drove
her homo at once, where it was found
that she was half starved and nearly
dead with cold. She is Incapihle of
telling n coherent story of her wander

There Is great excitement In the vil
