When some weeks ago the Frankatonites -went to Crib Point, they were de feated, but tl ey have improved since, and on this occasion they had "sweet revenge," although there was noth lsg revengeful in the game.... As a matter of fact, both sides are to be congratulated on the manliness of the game they played.
