The News : Thursday evening was
the occasion of the Anniversary club
meeting nt the homo of C. S. Snyder

Of Mrs. D. Q. Nicholson and Mrs. W.

the opportunity of n shower In honor

ushered Into the dining room where
all was a profusion of beauty , the
prevailing colors being pink nnd
green. Over the table hung n largo
bell decorated with pink and green
cut flowers and loaves and a dozen
tiny bells suspended from the largo

ilowers interwoven with vines. At
each plate was a very pretty place
card bearing the picture of a bride
with the names of each guest written
thereon. Soon all wore engaged in
partaking of a splendid dinner , after

OPENS WITH A FAIRY TALE.
Monday Night Begun New Theater's
Now York , Oct. 1. The Now The
ater opened Its second season Mon )
day evening with a production of
Maeterlinck's "The Blue Bird , " styled | .
"A Fairy Play About Children for
' Grown Ups. " Seventy-five players ,
two-thirds of them children , partici '
pated in the poetic spectacle.
The story deals chiolly with Tyltyl
and Mytyl , the son and the daughter ' I
of a poor woodchopper , who are tuck
ed in their beds Christmas Eve to
await a morrow which Santa Glaus
will not bless.
After the parents go to bed the
children go to the window and are
watching the holiday festivities In
their rich neighbor's homo , when >
Fairy Berylune , a wltchllko old wo .
man , enters and demands that the :
children provide her with "grass that
sing" or a "bird that Is blue. " She
is particularly anxious to obtain the
latter , as Its capture will bring hap-
piness to mankind and health to a
sickly small girl of her acquaintance.
Tyltyl and Mytyl express thulr will-
ngness to hunt for the bird , nnd the
fairy sots upon the head of Tyltyl n
magic cap , In the center of which Is
i svondetful diamond. With the tuni
ng of this diamond the souls of Flro ,
Water , Milk , Bread , the Cat , the Dog
and oven the trees come forth and
speak ; the past nnd future unfold
themselves , and many wonderful and
entrancing transformations take place.
After n scries of marvelous adven
tures the two children return to the
cottage and awake In the morning to
llnd that their turtle dove In n cage
by the window Is blue , and has been
all the time. They willingly give It ,
but although the sick child recovers
the bird thereafter escapes.
Gladys Hulctto Is appearing as
Tyltyl and Irene Brown as Mytyl.

MRS. POTTER PALMER ON BOARD.
Chicago Woman , Object of Bomb , Re
cently Came Over on Mauretanla.
Mrs. Potter Palmer and her house
hold , who wcro thrown Into a panic
in Chicago yesterday after discover
ing that a crank had set n bomb un
der her homo , returned to America
from England on the steamer Mnuro-
tanln only n few weeks ago. C. R.
Allen of Dnrnnt , Okln. , who visited In
Norfolk this week , was a passenger
on the same boat. In Mrs. Palmer's
party wore seventeen persons , includ
ing her daughter , her son-in-law , their
children nnd a number of servants.
Besides Mrs. Palmer , there wore oth
er notables on the steamer , including
Paul Morton and Mnmlo Adams , the
The Mauretanln , according to Mr.
Allen , is n veritable palace on the
soa. It is known as "the millionaire's"
boat. Some of the suites sell for
? 1,500 for the four days' trip. The
ship carries 2,500 passengers , besides
the crew of 800 nnd it requires 7,500
tons of coal to run the ship a day.
Twenty-eight trainloads of coal are
required to stock the steamer with
fuel for Its quick run. The speed
maintained thirty miles an hour , eras
as much as the speed of an ordinary
train is the cause of the burning up
of so much fuel.
Mr. Allen was returning from a
month's visit with his brothers and
sisters in England. One brother from
India , chief engineer of that province
and acting governor during the ab
sence of Lord Curzon , and another
brother from Rio de Janeiro , Brazil ,
wore at lipme in England for the fam
But for all the fact that ho enjoyed
his visit , Mr. Allen was glad to get
back to America. He likes America
and American ways better than those
of the mother country.
Wages of the laboring class in Eng
land are not what they are in Ameri

$50 a year , her nursemaid $40 a year ,

The English think Roosevelt is the
greatest living man. Mr. Allen says ,
nnd they agree with him In his Guild
Hall speech censuring the Egyptian
department of the government. The
English likewise have great respect
for President Taft and believe that
his administration will be a successful

WHEN HE DOES THAT-
Then You'll Know That He Is a Mc-m- [
ber of the Esperanto Club.
If you should happori to see a per
son take his lint off with his left
nhand , place It over his right shoulder
ta'and extend the right hand to another
and shake , you will know that he is
n member of the Esperanto associn-
tion. This is the International Es- '
peranto way of greeting ,
Dr. and Mrs. J. H. Mnckay have
been studying this language for sev
eral months and the doctor declares
ho Is able to read and understand the
language fairly well. F. A. Beeler , al-
though not a student of the now lan
guage , became interested in it in n
passing way in Now York City , where
he met Dr. Ludwlg Zamenhoff of Moscow -
cow , Russia , the father of the Espor-
nnto , language. Dr. Zamenhoff , who
is | the most noted eye specialist of RUB *
sla , has been endeavoring to bring
this language before the world for
twenty years , says Mr. Beoler , nnd
2.000 delegates from nearly every
country in the world attended the
sixth international Esperanto con-
gress nt Washington on August 14 ,
last. Mr. Beelor stopped at the same
hotel with Mr , Zamenhoff In New
York , nnd talked with the doctor and
a largo number of other delegates to
the congress , among whom was the
representative of King Alfonso of
Spain nnd representatives of other
rulers. To Mr. Beelor the doctor de
clared that anyone acquainted with
the continental languages can acquire
the new language In about one month.
During the Esperanto congress In
Washington the delegates spoke no
other language but Esperanto. A
baseball game was played In which
the umpire gave his decisions In Es-1
peranto ; services were held In church'sit

THE HOBBLE'S STAY BRIEF.
Paris , Oct. 1 , The leading estab
lishments finally have declared what
styles will bo for the next six months ,
nnd the sartorial tension is removed.
The public breathes once more now
that It Is safe In the thought that the
very tight skirt la no more.
The best skirts now measure one
yard more In circumference than those
of six months ago. That Is to say , In
English measurement hems measure
two and a half yards. The cut Is not
widely varied , for the straight up and
down air Is preserved. The effect at
some angles is the same as the skirt
of last spring.
It Is when the wearer steps out that
the difference Is appreciated.
The short , or walking length , robe
is with ut , still. Ono or two houses
have attempted to bring back the
trained skirt , but they have not suc
The bolt line 1ms moved again , nnd
this time It has pushed up two or
three Inches. This is particularly the
case with afternoon and evening
clothes. Even for tailor-mades , however -
over , the line of the waist Is not where
nature put it , being always on the up
lift. The dresses nil have a direc-
There is no change in sleeves , unless -
less it bo that they are a fraction loss '
full. For tailor made sleeves are so
long that they almost extend to the
knuckles. For less severe wear the
sleeves are elbow lengths or extended
half way between elbow and wrist.
Rough faced goods nro employed to
the exclusion of almost anything else.
Even the satin in many instances has
a twilled or rumpled air. This is the
case with the now material known as

Buttons ! Buttons ! Buttons of every
description. And they are beautiful.
The enameled ones that go on tailor-
mades are , like so many of the silks
ami velvets , changeable In effect. Yet
their coloring is such that It harmon
Izcs with no matter what they are put
on. Velvets and silks and coarse lain
ages all employ buttons. They look
like mother of pearl dyed. It Is novel
to see such buttons on satins , but it is
lovely the way they set off the coquet
ry of satin , for , as n matter of note
this season , satin has become quite

wining 2 and aVlentlne 2. So I claim
Ainsworth has a just right to accept
Valentine's challenge and did so on
the 12th day of September , of which :
I send a copy of the acceptance , as j
Valentine made the assertion that
they would play Ainsworth for $100
n game , and Ainsworth accepted their
challenge on September 12 , which Val
entine received on the same date.
In answer to the reasons why ,
Alnsworth did nut play Valentine on
September 8 , it was for this reason :
That at that date Ainsworth's catch-
er had a bad hand and our pitcher ,
"a"could not get away to play , and two
of our players were out of town , so
we could not play with only five men , ,
and the management notified Valen -
tine to this effect two days before. I
And not doing as Valentino did with ;
us for the games they were to play
here at the fair which were dated with
them on August 14 , nnd also acknowl |
edged by Mr. Fisher that lie would
play then with us as late as Septem
ber 23 by phone on that date. Mr.
Fisher says we are going to disband ,
but wo will get players enough to play j
them the games then. He wals till the '

BAN ON SOCIETY GAMBLERS.
The Fall Sport at Hot Springs , Va. (
Stopped by Authorities.
Hot Springs , Vn. , Oct. 3. Dismay
has struck the millionaire colony hero
because of a gambling scandal similar

Old Formations Into Discard.
Chicago , Oct. 1. Walter tl. Ecker-
sail writes , concerning the new foot
ball formations :
The radical changes In the football
lulus governing play during the sea
son which opened olllclally today will
In all probability have a serious effect
on the attacks which have character-
1/ed the style of ground gaining plays
in the past.
The rules have been changed to
such an extent that formations which
were considered to be the strongest in
a team's category of offense now must
bo discarded and others which never
were considered of much value must
be worked up and perfected to the
ground gaining strength of the old for
Under the old regime when an of
fensive team needed one or two yards
on a third down to make the necessary
distance the full back generally was
( ailed upon to make a buck on or oIT
the tackles , and with the half backs
and quarter allowed to push or pull
him the chances were he would make
a first down.
Coaches Depend on Tackle Play.
The coaches depended mostly on the
concentration of this attack to make
the needed distance , and If the tackle
and end on the attacking side of the
line did their work , the play was good
for the required distance , except pos-
slbly when a team was inside of its
opponent's ten yard line. The sec
ondary defense then was pulled up
closely behind the line and often re
pulsed the attack.
Many games have been lost through
the foolhardy selection of plays by
the quarter back or the player calling
the signals , sending a player around
the end or some other formation where
the chances were against his making
the required distance for a first down.
On plays of this kind ami when dis
tance Is needed , concentration of at-
j' tack ' Is the keynote of success nnd
the quarter always should be careful
to ' give his teammates plenty of time
to get set for the piny and also should
bo sure that every member of the
team lias the correct interpretation of
Hard Work for Linemen.
With the push and pull of the man
with the ball eliminated more work
than ' ever is going to fall on the ghoul
dors of the linemen. The success of
every play against an opposing line
from tackle to tackle and a number
which nro directed just outside of the
tackles will depend on the linemen
for their success or failure. In other
words , the forwards must be taught
to meet the charge on their opponents
and buck them in whatever direction
the play is sent.
In other years a lineman could hold
his position nnd when the concen
trated attack of three or tour of ills
teammates hit him , the impetus was
sure to gain some ground , but this
season It Is certain the Impetus of
one man , starting from a position not
over five yards back of the line of
scrimmage , cannot gain much against
a teammate who Is charged by his op
The success of line plunges this
year is sure to center on the forwards
getting the charge on their opponents
nnd If the quarter back or the player
running a team finds that it is impos
sible to gain ground by this system asof
attack , he Immediately should llnd
other means of attack with more >
ground gaining results.
Strong Point of Eleven ,
As far as offensive play Is concern-
* d , the bulk of attack this season Is
sure to center on and off the tackles.r
If a i team Is fortunate enough to have
two good tackles , equally strong In
, offensive and defensive play , such an
eleven Is well fortified and reasonablj
| PUI of success.
, Ill I addition such a team must have
a heady I center , ono who understands
tin signals and the functions which
ho Is to perform on every play. In
other years the pivot man was sup
posed to bo prollclent In passing the
bal to the quarter when the latter
wa dlrctly behind him. He also wnil
supposed to bo accurate In his passing
to the kicker whether the latter was
punting or trying for n goal from the
This season , with the man who llrst
receives the ball from the center al
lowed to run anywhere through the
line , the passing of the pivot and his
understanding of the signals now Is
essential to the success of the play.
The center will be compelled to pass
the ball to the quarter in his regular
position , to one of the backs who
might bo stationed off to ono side or
some other angle , nnd to some player
who may bo placed ton or fifteen
yards back to make a forward pass.
In addition there Is sure to bo n lot
of short , hard passing In which n bad
toss will mean the failure of the play.
Quarter Back is Real Pivot ,
Already a great deal has been said
about the quarter back and what posi
tion he now will take on the offense ,
but the player who occupies this posi
tion is going to be of Just as much
importance under the new code , if
not more so , than ho was under the
The only qualification which the
quarter now must have which was not
so necessary under the old game la
weight. It Is the opinion of a number
of coaches that the quarter back tills
season will bo used as a shifting Inter-
ferer. In other words , lie will bo
placed against a smashing half back
In a position whore ho can turn the
runner out or In , according to the di
rection of the play.
Others are of the opinion he will bo
on a line with the three backs in a
position where he can either interfere
or run with the ball , while others be
lieve he will be sent to ono side of the
Held or the other to draw one of the
defensive players out with him , and
then a play will be sent off the weak
ened defensive side. )
No matter in what position ho is
used , his Importance to a team will
not be lessoned one lota , and If any
thing his judgment in the selection of
plays and the opportunities which he
now will have of inspiring his team
mates to greater efforts will bo of
more Importance than ever.
Runner Must be Cornered.
On the defense the quarter back will
be called upon to perform the same
functions as he did under the old
legime. If anything , these duties will
be of more importance because of the
barring of the flying tackle and the ,
liberty of allowing an opposing team
to run for twenty yards after the
scrimmage line has been passed on a
If the quarter Is played as a defen
sive full back ho will have to be dead
ly In his tackling. He will have to
be more careful to corner a njnner be
tween himself and the side line , and
\ vlcihe \ is sure there is no chance
of the man with the ball getting away ,
then he can make his charge with
enough speed to break a straight-arm
and bring his man to the ground with
out a flying tackle.
The bulk of attack will be on and
off the tackles and this attack Is sure
to be featured by hard , smashing
drives in which the half back is check
ed as soon as possible and the man
with the ball dashes in or outside ,
whichever is the best way.
Twenty-round Go Is Booked.
After an entire day of discussion ,
Interested parties and promoters of
'Kid" West of Omaha and Jack
( Twin ) Sullivan of O'Neill completed
arrangements nnd signed up articles
for a boxing contest between these
two lighters. Eacli side puts up $200
as a side bet , which Is forfeited should
either of the fighters fail to appear at
the ringside at 9 o'clock Thursday
night , Octbber 20 , the date set for the
battle. The gate receipts are to be
divided 60 percent for the winner and
10 for the loser.
Sullivan , who Is said to weigh over
170 pounds , wUl forfeit his ? 200 de
posit unless he can lower his weight
to 1G2 pounds or less. Kid West , who
now weighs about 148 pounds , will
probably weigh about HO ponnds
when he enters the ring.
A feature of the evening's contest
will be the appearance of George Ford ,
Patsey Magner or James Dougherty ,
who are to be asked to leferee the
bout. According to the articles sign
ed by Kid West , his supporters and
the promoters of Jack Sullivan have
agreed to make the fight twenty
rounds. The ten round proposition
was not favorable to Young Denney
and other supporters of West , who
believe the fight fans would rather
witness a battle of longer duration.
Arthur Ryan nnd Jake McKlnney
are Sullivan promoters and declared
that at least seventy-five light fans
from O'Neill nlono will como to Nor
folk to see the bout.
Young Denney has declnieu no win

fighters so desire ho will go him n
