To <lo this he betook himself up the

thinking that ho was playing the very

intending to enjo}' Bomo of the sport
with George. When they arrived there
he hud net caught a single fish?didn't
have as much as a scale, oi.dy had a boy
iu a little puddle with a brush drag,
with which he said lie would soon eiteh
enough for the crowd; for says the af
fable G.?"When [ came up here there
could not have been less than live hun

decided to assist in hauling out the
bufcb-drag, which was thought to bold
no less than half the pike in that hole
Finally it was got out, and it would uot
be esagrating one bit to say that our
expectations, so\fir as numbers were con

it known that the jumping, fluttering
things that mado tho ground lively

The members of the Orange Club left
heroin high spirits, followed by the
good wisbcB of Orangebuvg's fairest
daughters, whoso confidence in the
prowess of our young men Jian never yat
been shaken. On the train the Club
enjoyed themselves by indulging in wit
und humor, and surmises as to the proba
ble result of the game. Although con
scious that in tho Athletes tliey would
meet foes worthy of their steel, still tho
sanguine Orange boy3 never dispaired
of victory for a moment, and no thought
of defeat could find entertainment
among them. Kvcn the fair ones who
helped to make their pretty uniforms,
