SPORT IS WORTH WATCHING
National Ball Game of the Basque
Mountaineers That Calls for All
Sorts of Resourceful Work.
However modest as a geographical
unit may be the Basque mountaineers
of the Pyrenees, there remains to
their credit a national ball game that
will yield nothing to the finest sport
ing efforts of the Anglo-Saxon people,
whether in the matter of pure recrea
tion or of spectacular Interest. The
tourbillon-Uke movement with which
the player, the pelotari, swings round
to catapult the ball with backhanded
fling to the great wall eighty yards
away Is no less graceful than the
sweeping hurl of the discobolus, while
the vigorous contest under the lee of
the wall, where the Mil Is shot from
the "chistera," the curved wickerwork
glove, with marvelous rapidity, affords
an unlimited display of resourceful
tactics. The referee, bright-colored
beret on head, sings the srore In set
refrain and the applause thunders
from the crowd as Chlqutto, or Mel
chior, or some other national hero of
this "pelote basque" game earns his
meed of praise.
Fountains in Li.Don.
A delightful feature that nttracts the
attention In Lisbon, the capital of Por-.

of Neptune, or obelisks of marble ;
there are a sculptured Venus and
Adonis, and again, as on the Largo do
Cnrtno, an original erection In the form
of a temple, and elsewhere simply the
hollowed shell and a faucet with
chained cup. Some of them are beau
tiful, all are Interesting by reason of
the picturesque groups which collect
around then» to draw and fetch water.
The women, says an exchange, have as
free and graceful a carriage In bal

I The pnces quoted by eastern
fur dealers for coyote skins range
from $28 for big choice ones down
to $1.50. Their fur is at its best
now and will be so till February.
The animal is difficult to ensnare
in a trap but by experience trap

1 By nature the coyote is savage
and crue l and will kill anything
it is able to kill simply for the
love of killing. It delights to
punish its prey by slightly wound
ing it so it will suffer. Therefore
anyone who wears coyote für
should not think they have
caused the brute any suffering,
There is no punishment fit for

They Look Good.
It is really refreshing to see the
nifty young soldiers again in their
natty togs. Is there any neater
uniform in the world than that of
Uncle Sam's. It should be the
proudest moment of a yjung
man's life to slip inside of these
garments. They make any man
look dressy and neat. No won
der the French girls want Yankee
husbands. To be sure they look
good since we have been accus
tomed to seeing older men or else
younger boys, too young yet to
acquire one of Uncle Sam's uni
forms. The cream of the country
was called to the colors and what
was left were seemingly the culls,
but among even those the uni
forms were becoming and there
were also many of them aching
to get inside of them.
