of Ontario, for example, tlko those
of our neighboring town of Vale
will not tako too seriously tho ro-

should be blamed; or pitied; for
thoy aro to bo pitied who cannot
play a gamo fairly and bo good losers
when fairly defeated. It Is no dis
grace to loso a ball gamo; but It
Is disgraceful to so loso control of
one's temper as to becomo childish.
