He rose rapidly front one post to an* other until 1882, when hd Was the gen eral superintendent of the Chicago, Mil waukee & St. Paul Road. In that year he was offered the position ot general superintendent of- the Canadian Pacific and accepted. Under his managemfin construction was pushed forward with remarkable energy, and the last spike was driven at Cfaigellachie by Sir Daniel Smith on Nov. 7, 1885, five years before the time set in the government contract.

Ie remained with the San Jose club hroughout the season of 1892,, and gain did good work, both at the bat Ind in the field. His playing attract[ the attention of many of the minor pague managers, but the offer he re- bived from the Augusta Club, of the Jouthern League, for the season of 1893 leing the most liberal, he accepted it. the Southern League championship Wson was divided into two parts that fear, the first one ending on July 5, Ind according to the averages for the Irst season Everitt took part in sixty- 0 championship games. There were *o official averages made of the sec- Ind part, and, therefore, no record can 1 given for his work during that pe- liod. In 1894 Everitt was with the Debit Club, of the Western League, tak- bg part that year in one hundred and Jweaty-nine championship; contests, Ind ranking twenty-second in a field of Ine hundred and thirty-eight batsmen \11 his games were'played on the in- |eld, being divided up between short •top and third, base.

Before the use of the cathode rays the wrist had been doctored for a sprain. The removal of the splinter was readily accomplished by a surgical operation. * * * Even O. P. Caylor is compelled to do tardy justice to Pfeffer. He said of him the other day: "There isn't any discount to 'Fred' Pfeffer's play at short stop. He is the right man there in the right place. If he would only 'saw wood' instead of beating about the bushes for supposed enemies he would accomplish more. It was a wise parrot who once said to himself, 'Polly, you talk too much.'

His services were recognized by his election to the vice presidency, and, later, by his election to the presidency of the road. The owned and leased lines of the Canadian Pacific cover 5,536 miles. Van Home has, through his official position, been prominent in Canadian politics. In consideration of his efforts to push the affairs of the great road he was knighted by Queen Victoria.

The duration of sunshine in the various countries of Europe was recently discussed at a scientific meeting in Berlin. It was shown that Spain stands at the head of the list, having on an average 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, while Italy has 2,300 hours, Germany 1,700 hours and England 1,100 hours.

He also did some llever fielding last year. At third base Be played nine'games without an error, and played an errorless game in all but pne out of fourteen. Three times he |ccepted eight chances without an er- or. On June 14, at Boston, he accept- Id all of nine chances at third base. On July 4, at Chicago, in a game with the IJincinnatis, he made a safe hit, in- |luding a home run, each of the five times he went to the bat, and in the ame game accepted all of eight chances New York's young catcher, Zearfoss, is as heavy as Clements. t Elmer Smith is doing the hardest hitting of the Pittsburg team. Shortstop Rothermel is lying quite ill in a New Orleans hospital. Denny Lyons so far has proved a bit disappointing to Pittsburghers, President Stucky thinks the Colonels will finish as good as eighth. Chicago still has 31 players on its list, which includes nine pitchers. Charley Campau has left for Seattle, where he will manage that city's team. Captain Robinson thinks well of Baltimore's Toronto acquisition, pitcher Gray. The Chicagos will have but two catchers this year—Kittredge and Donobue. Buckenberger has added a "financial agent," one Jules Guyot, to his Toronto staff, Ex-Player John F. Morrill is now writing base ball for the "Journal," of Boston. Pittsburg seems to have picked up a couple of good pitchers in Hastings and Goar. Pitcher James Conners, of the disbanded Memphis club, has signed with Pottsville. Harry Vonderhorst has gotten a move on. New bleachers are being built at Union Park, Jimmy Donnelly, who is subbing for Baltimore during McGraw's illness, is highly spoken of.

There is an axiom among mining prospectors that while knowledge of mineralogy is a first necessity for a man starting out to hunt for the precious ore, yet the richest finds are often made by the rankest tenderfoot. It is well illustrated in a recent rich find near Salt Lake City, Utah. Willard Weihe, a violin soloist in the Tabernacle, was walking in City Creek canyon, on the outskirts of the city, when he kicked aside some rock that struck him as being unusual in appearance. Out of pure curiosity he carried a piece of the rock back to, town and had it assayed. It showed $500 in gold and $40 in silver to the ton. Weihe was so much surprised he almost fainted. Then, when he recovered, he hurried back to where he found the rock, without mentioning the matter to anyone, and staked out a large number of claims for himself and friends. Now a considerable camp has sprung up, and the workings bear out the promise in Weihe's chance strike. Faithful to the last maker. The secret of prolonging life is not to abridge it. There is no tick in the silent watches of the night. If a policeman does not .preserve order he gets into a pickle. How hard the man who paints tries to bring the conversation around to artists.

This is all very *ell but opportunity is really a spiritual thing, on the immaterial side of life, and is developed like an image on a sensitized plate, rather than procured, To do faithfully what is given Us today creates this larger opportunity for a future day.—Lilian Whiting. Are you questioning what course in life you shall take? Let love tell you. Love is the only prophet, love is the only teacher. Love will answer all problems, because love is God. We are in the world like a child who plays upon the floor with a disintegrated map, which she does not know , how to put together, Here is some father lovo and here some mother love, and her some brother love and her some wife love, here some love that is wrathful -against wrong, and hero some love that is beautiful with suffering, and here some love that Is merciful and compassionate toward the sinful—love all broken up in fragments. Put them together; take your life for, this task and put them together; and when all the fragments of life are put together you will find the map is love, for life is God, and God is love.—Lyman Abbott, D.
