Certainly it would seem as if no out door sport for women is so becoming as wheeling. The dress, in the first place, gives her a natty appearance, and there is nothing like this exercise for making and keeping the roses in her cheeks.

"I called all bets off because I believe the action of McVey was paid for by somebody who had bet on Sharkey, and I did not propose to decide public money on a palpable fake.

People were out of work and starving. Money, food and clothes were donated fruDi nearby towns, cities, by individuals and societies. The trustees of the New Castle com mons have evidently forgotten that iiairowing experience and instead of making an extra effort to get manufac tures, they want a measly little stun of $30 a year for a lease of t he now useless ground which would be of no benifit to the town and its working people.
