AVING ENTERED into an engage-, meht with the director of Covent Garden for a series of concerts, Prof. Desgoftes set about preparing the ground with his accustomed skill, making use of all the great London newspapers for this purpose. He started, a week after the conclusion of the engagement, with the two young artistes, attended by «aia- lia's old governess. They chose a Sunday evening, that the "hole ftunlly might be able to accompany them to the railway station. . Guillaume was even more melancholy than usual, his gloomy face contrasting sharply with the happy faces of the lUrpose. The next Sunday they found them selves alone in the drawing room—h leaning in melancholy attitude on th piano, she practicing for the next evening. She stopped suddenly and said, "What are you thinking of, Guillaume ?' "I am listening to you." "Oh, not at all." "Yes, indeed! ••uo not look so sad," whispered l«iata- lia as the train was about to start, and Guillaume was obliged to say good-by, "I'll write every day."

She stopped suddenly, for Gulllaume was blushing violently, and then she resumed hurriedly, nervously. "All jesting aside, as I have said. icse long Sundays must weary you Inexpressibly. A young man requires some better amusement than listening to a cantatrlce practice interminable scales." „ "How mistaken you are, Tiomane, he answered, gently; "do you not know that there Is no place so dear to me, _, „,»,„„« T am sn hat>ny. as in iu i;iiuij^,**e ~——— — to Tiomane, in her most teas- deplores our belle canta- trice ?"

The rehearsals began at once, as the first concert was to be given on the eighth day after their arrival. The tickets were sold at fabulous prices.

His percentage in batting was .370, and in field- ilng was .976. . He finished the season 'with the Los Angeles club. In 1890 he Iwas connected with the Dubuque team, iof the Illinois and Iowa League, and 'ranked seventh in the official batting 'averages, with a percentage of .307, 'while ho had a fielding average of .902. ;in 1891 he joined the Joliet team, also 'of the Illinois and Iowa League, taking jpart that year in ninety-five championship games, and again ranked seventh 'in the official batting averages of that ileague, with a percentage of .304 and •stood second in the official fielding aver- 'ages of that organization as"a first base•man, with a percentage of .985. He be- 'jgan the season of 1892 with the Jollct iteam, and led the first basemen of that ileague in fielding, with a percentage of 1 987. He also had a batting average of •282 when he was transferred to the Chicago club, of the major league, Where he finished the season, taking Ipart with the latter in ninety-seven 'championship games, in sixty-three of iwhich he played In the outfield and the 'other sixteen at second base. He has remained with the Chlcagos ever since. In 1893 he took part in eighty-one cham- 'pionship games, in fifty-four of which he played first base, twenty at second base and the remainder in the outfield. tin 1894 he took part in eighty-nine 'championship games, which was the greatest number in any season since he 'Joined the Chlcagos; in the majority he played at first base, the remainder be- ine played in various other positions, 'principally the outfield. He had a bat- 'tlng average of .310, according to the official averages of the major league.

They have seen many available districts, but prefer a location for i which they are applying in Alberta, 1 It is very unlikely that their request ! will be granted, and the promoters of f the scheme will probably turn their at- 1 tention now to the western states. Gen, Booth met the governor-general and members of his cabinet in Ottawa last winter and propounded bis scheme, which, he was subsequently given to understand, did not commend itself favorable to the government. The latter is willing to accord its usual homestead grants of free land to individual settlers from the army farm in England, but will not recognize toe pater* i nal coaraater of the directors of the enterprise to the extent demanded py the general, wno contemplated a grant from the government to Uie Salvation or to himself as its bead, of a JJKSSKSSiKftW** ™C>.X'£ C « Western league this year, the ~ Press oBered this trophy, ««* schedule meeting In St. Pai r P p^d lt a w 'r»c oI to sssMs^Jffl^ 5 ^ Free Press. • , - CAPT.
