Tlio Capital City gun club held a very suc
orssfol shoot at Lincoln Park on July fifth.
H. j. Welch of this city won thechampionship
cup offered by O'Neil and Gardner. In this
eTent thero were six tied for tho cup nnd Mr.
Welch was obliged to shoot off four time to
prove his right to tho prize. Tho shooting be
gan at nine o'clock and lasted tUl darkness put
an cud to the sport when tho club was com
pelled to call off ono largo bird ovent for which
there were many entries.
The Lincoln gen club also celebrated the day
by a school on thoir grounds west of tho via
duct. Several merchandise and money prizes
were offered and somo good shooting was done.
Mr. LaUhaw won tho prize for tho highsst

The Legislature of Pennsylvania has passed
an excellent game law which it would bo well
for this state to adopt. Tho law prohibits the
sale of game of all kinds killed in tho State
and also stops the removal or game taken witli
in the state. This, of coarse, puts an end to
tho killing of game for hotel and market trade
carried on by use of traps and other devices
which were used to catch great (inanities of
game of all kinds. But tho law also puts a
check on tho sportsman, a limit being placed
upon the bags which may bo made per diem.
One man may now kill in a day ten cocks, ten
grouse, fifteen quail and two wild turkeys; the
use of ferrets while hunting rabbits is prohib
ited and a person cannot kill moro thsn two
deer daring the season. This law has not only
been passed but is enforced and a guilty party
must either pay up or go to jail and remain
there a day for every dollar. What a blessing
such a law would be for this state. True, there
have been game laws enacted but they are very
seldom enforced and we have no law to prevent
the killing of garoo for sale in this stato and
shipment to other states.
Two very interesting games were played be
tween the University and David city teams on
Monday last. David city won tho morning
game by a score of 10 to 5 and tho university
boys returned the compliment in the afternoon
with a score of II to 9. Tuesday afternoon tho
two teams again took the field to finish tho last
of the scries of the six games which they have
been booked to play. This resulted in a victory
for the visitors by a score of 4 to 3. in the six
games the university boys have won from David

IN MEMORY OFV. MORTON SMITH
Whoever has been kind to us,
I think we'll surely know beyond
The river's brink, though here
on earth green miles
Between uc lay, beyond life's hills
Veil clasp the hands some day.
Tis not alone the faces we have seen
Shall smile on us in Paradise, I ween,
But all who held our hands
and bade us rise,
Will know us there bereft of earth's disguise.
So I believe, when I shall
pass the gate,
And greet the throng I hope
shall me await,
That stranger-friend whose
written words I hold,
Shall bid me welcome to
the streets of gold.
He wished me well.
With kindly thought he
penned sweet words of praise,
And so he was my friend.
And thus I grieve that
Death so soon should claim
One whom I knew on earth
but as a name. ISABEL RICHEY.
The Lord Chancellor.
The lord chancellor is tho only mem
ber of the British cabinet who is not
allowed to go outside of Great Britain.
This is because he must have the great
seal in his personal custody, and to take
the great seal outside of Great Britain
would almost be an act of high treason.
When Cardinal Wolssy was lord
chancellor, he took it with him on a
visit to France, and thereby hastened
his fall, in the opinion of many. The
great seal, which is a double silver die,
into which molten wax is poured when
an impression is required for a state
document, was once ueed for culinary
purposes. While Lord Chancellor
Brougham was staying, in 1 833, at
RothiemurchuB, the Scottish residence
of the the dowager Duchess of Bedford,
the ladies of the party got possession of
the great seal and hid it, much to the
lord keeper's distress of mind, for he
feared it was lost. He was blindfolded
by the ladits aad sent to search for it in
the drawing-room. At last, to his in
tense joy, he dragged it forth from a tea
chest, and then, to celebrate its recovery,
used it for making pancakes in the
kitchen. New York Tribune.
The Invention of Envelopes.
The invention of envelopes is within
the memory of middle-aged persons, and
was the result of a Brighton (England)
stationer's endeavor to make his Etoro
look attractive. He took a fancy for
ornamenting his store-windows with
high piles of paper, grdauated from the
highest to the smallest size in use. To
bring his pyramid to a point, he cut
cardboard into very minute squares.
Ladies took these cards to be small
sized note-paper, and voted it "perfectly
lovely." So great was the demand that
the stationer found it desirable to cut
paper the size so much admired. But
there was one difficulty. The little notes
were bo email that when folded there
was no space for the address, so after
some thought the idea of the envelope
pierced the stationer's brain. He had
them cut by a metal plate, and soon, so
great was the demand, he commissioned
a dozen houses to manufacture them for
him. From such small beginnings came
this important branch of stationery
business. Inventive Age.
