Norfolk 18 , Nellgh 0.
Norfolk high school 18 , Nellgh high
Norfolk won the first football game
under the new 1910 rules Saturday
afternoon from Nellgh by a score of
IS to 0. Both teams were a trifle tan-
Bled on the new rules , hut Norfolk ,
after the first quarter , had the ball In
Nellgh's territory all the time. Ne
llgh played hard all through the game
and during the llrst quarter they In
troduced some clevp.r plays. After
four minutes of playing In the second
quarter Fred Sellery. the last Nellgh
fullback , punted , but McWhorter , one
of Norfolk's fast ones , caught It and
made a touchdown.
In the first quarter of the second
half the ball was held hard in Nellgh's
territory , with the Nellgh players
lighting desperately and trying every
trick of the game. Kellehei's punt to
the Nellgh goal was badly fumbled by
Nollgh. with Ben Wll'e ' making a second
end touchdown for Norfolk after a
rough mix-up. Fisher made the clean
goal kick , giving Norfolk two touch'
downs and two goal kicks.
In the second down McWhorter was
hurt , but was soon In the game after
getting n short rest. Two Is'ellgh play
ers \\ere bleeding badly from the
In the last quarter Fred Sellery ,
making a center plunge , Injured his
head when Kelleher endeavored to
stop him by turning his back to him ,
Sellery leaped Into the air , striking
the ground with his head. He was |
back in the game after some delay ,
but showed signs of being painfully
hurt. The last part of the last half
was desperately fought on both sides ,
Norfolk seeming fresh and very good |
on blocking the punts , which scored I
them their touchdowns. This block
ing Neligh could not solve. Kelleher
at 4-15 : made a touchdown , with Fish
er backing him for a goal kick , mak
ing the score 18 to 0.
Nellgh was highly praised by the i
coaches of the Norfolk team , but the
rooting of the home guards for theli
champions seemed to get on the No-
Ugh players' nerves. Fred Sollery
played n good game and his Injury
probably helped Norfolk make the
last touchdown. Jenkins at quarter
back was good air through the game
while the other players till showed
peed team work , but their fumbles
and Inability to solve Norfolk's block
Ing scored for Norfolk.
Ben Wllle , captain and loft half foi
Norfolk , featured all around , while
Parish , Kelleher , Fisher and Denton
were the favorites of the fans. Su

school was timekeeper and de
clared the Norfolk boys would have a

Issued another challenge for a gamete

feel like a doughnut , " said Mrs. Char-
lie Miller to her husband , as she passed -
, ed him a plate of "sinkers" at the dinner -
Charlie Miller was eating a peach.
The Idea that he could feel like a
i doughnut struck his funny bone just
in time to start him eating and laughing -
ing at the same time. The peach
. stone slid Into his epiglottis and he
. I strangled until a physician was call-
The physician took1 Miller to his
office In an automobile and made him
cough up the peach stone by admin

an hour Miller's life was In danger.
GEORGE ADE LOST A NAME.
There'll be no Play Called "U. S. Min
ister Jackson. "
Now York , Oct. 3. It all depends
on the point of view. George Ade ,
i the humorist , feels that he has a
grievance against John B. Jackson ,
jnltcd States envoy extraordinary
ind minister plenipotentiary to Cuba.
The said John B. Jackson , etc. , etc. ,
s certain that ho Is justified In speak-
ng harshly to and of the comic opera
trust as embodied In the man from
n ( Ilium.
Anyway , the man from Morro wins ,
Because George Ado has announced
that the bright lights of some Broad
way theater will never blazon forth
the name of "United States Minister
Jackson. " The reason Is that United
States Minister Jackson objects.
When It was published that Mr. Ado
had delivered to Charles Frohman anew
now play for William II. Crane , call
ed "U. S- . Minister Jackson. " Mr.
lackson , minister to Cuba , wrote Mr.
Ade , admonishing the humorist
against the use of his name.
Feeling Just a little bit peevish
about It , . Mr. Ade said :
"I hereby take credit for rescuing
from the oblivion of Cuba to the Illus
trious glory of 'these hero United
States , ' United States Minister Jack
son. About a month ago I delivered
Mr. Frohman a now play for William
II. Crane , called 'U. S. Minister Jack
son. ' The scenes are laid in a South
tVmcrlcan republic , and Mr. Crane waste
to have been Minister Jnckson. The
newspapers no f-ooner printed the fact
than a real United States Minister
Jackson sprang Into existence. Ho Is
minister to Cuba and I have his letter
requesting me to kindly leave him In
Cuba and not put him on the stage ,
at least without consulting his par
ents. From what I have heard of
United States Minister Jackson ho has
been stealing my business Instead of
my stealing his. I think It was very
careless of him to go into the min
isterial business until I got through
playwrltlng. However , there Is noth
ing to do but let the government have
"So Mr. Crane's play , which will bo
ready for production In October , will
be called 'U. S. Minister Bedloe. ' "
Taft On the Issues.
New York , Oct. 3. President Taft
delivered what will probably be his
only public address of the present
campaign at the banquet of the na
tional republican league at the Hotel
Astor. The president's speech was
marked by an unusually conciliatory
tone toward the insurgent wing of the
party. He gave "all factions of the
party" due credit for their share in
helping to put through congress the
legislative program which the presi
dent took occasion to outline in some
The record of the past eighteen
months , he declared , was an earnest
of the desire of the party to fulfill its
platform promises am1 obligations , and
he promised that if the republican
majority In congress should be con
tinued at the coming elections , the
work thus far left undone would be
carried through to completion.
Upon the whole republican parly
the president bestowed the title of
Defines the Progressive.
Then he undertook to define just
what Is meant by "progressive. "
"A party of true progress Is not a
party of radicalism , " ho declared ,
amid cheers. "It Is not u party of
ullra-coiibervallsm , " he added , and
again was cheered.
"A progressive lepublican , " the
president went on , "is one who recog
nizes existing and concrete evils and
who Is In favor of practical and def
inite steps to eradicate them. "
Twice President Taft mentioned
Colonel Roosevelt by name In connec
tion with the campaign against cor
porate abuses and a third time by in
ference , when he referred to the New
Mr. Taft did not take an altogether
sanguine view of the benefits of the
direct primary , but he hoped that the
Idea could be turned to a useful and
permanent betterment of politics.
"But however effective these sug
gested changes may prove at first , "
he added , "I venture to say that no
great permanent good can come from
them , unless they are accompanied by
a change In the Individual voter and
his awakening to the necessity for
constant watchfulness and effort on
his part to prevent the old evils from
appearing In a new guise. "
No Politics In Commission.
President Taft announced that ho
had directed the tariff commission to
make no report of the work It has
accomplished up to this time , until
after the election. He took this step ,
ho declared , In order to lift the com
mission out of politics entirely. He
referred to his suggested future re
vision of the tariff schedule by sched
ule and declared that the Payne tariff
law is becoming generally to be recog
nized as a most creditable bill. The
president declared for n sweeping ex
tension of the clvjl service.
In outlining the future plans of his
administration the president placed
stress upon the proposed federal In
corporation law. He referred to the
Standard Oil and tobacco trust cases
pending In the United Stales supreme
court and declared that he did not
share the fears being somewhat freely
expressed that a decision adverse to
the corporations would greatly disturb
financial centers , halt geneial business
and bring on financial disaster.
The president ridiculed the asser
tion of the democrats that $300,000,000
would bo saved In national expendi
tures each year if that party were
placed In power. Ho asked for a more
definite statement of where the saving
was to bo effected and demanded to
know If It Is proposed by the demo
crats to cut off the pension list or do
away with the army and tin navy.
LET ONLY MOTHERS TEACH ?
A New York Woman Ridicules Professor
ser Holmes' Theory.
What do you know of love ?
Are you married ?
If so , how many children have you ?
From proposed questions for school
teachers by Professor Arthur Holmes
of the University of Pennslyvanla.
Now York , Sept. 23. The foregoing
questions were referred to Miss Grace
Strachan , president of the Intorbor-
ough association of women teachers.
"Did you read Professor Ball's re
marks on the suffrage agitation being
the result of hysteria ? " she Inquired.
"If Dr. Baff and the author of these
foolish remarks may be taken as Kpecl-
menu of the college professors of to
day , It Is about time wo stopped send
ing our girls to college. Consider
how silly this idea that all teachers
should bo mothers really Is. Professor
ser Holmes' remarks assume that all
mothers are good molhers , all wives
good wives and all unmarried teach
ers unfit for marriage !
"As a matter of fact , that a teach
er Is unmarried does not signify that
she would not make the best of wives.
It does not even establish that she
does not desire marriage. But It does
mean that she Is able to give her en
tire thought and care to the children
in school , with no possibility of di
vided Interests such as the care of a
family of her own might entail.
"Every successful leacher , man or
woman must have the mother spirit.
A teacher must care for the little
minds and bodies intrusted to her ex
actly as if they were her own. But
while I have many excellent teachers
under mo who are married woman , I
cannot say that they show any super
ior insight into the child mind. In
many years of teaching I never have
discovered a 'little boy slipping a love
note to a lltllo girl , ' but , " Miss
Strachan smiled broadly , "I think I
should be able to rise to the occasion
If It came about. "
"What would you do. "
. "That would depend a good deal on
the character of the note , " Miss
Strachan answered. "If It were of
the right sort I am not sure I should
Interfere In the course of true love at
all. But , you know , there Is very lit
tle of that sort of thing In the minds
of school children. It Is far more apt
to be put there by Just such people aa
"The little boys and girls In our
schools have one Idea besides their
studies. It Is to have fun not fun
according to grown up standards , but
innocent games In which boys and
girls mingle with no notion of sex
"I am the strongest kind of be
liever In co-education. Our mixed high
schools have a much better tone than
those in which the boys or girls are
segregated. Comradeship In studies
and games between boys and girls Is
the surest enemy of precocious senti
ment. In a few cases I have heard of
where there was a girls' school with
in a block or so of one given over to
boys , the children were forbidden to
speak to each other at recess. Im
mediately the wrong spirit developed.
But when children are properly dealt
with in the schools there are no prob
lems of love notes lo be met. "
SEEKS TO AUCTION CHILDREN.
Pastor Nearly Mobbed When He Puts
Offspring on the Block.
Pitlsburg , Pa. , Sept. 23. There was
near rioting at Clrcleville , Pa. , when
the Rev. Thomas G. Boord , paslor of
the Wylie Avenue Baptist church , of
Pittsburg , after advertising that he
would sell two of his live children to
the highest bidder made an effort
to auction the children off. The min
ister never got an opportunity to fin
ish the sale as 1,000 persons protested
and he was nearly mobbed.
Mailers were no beller when the
Rev. Mr. Boord appeared In his pul
pit in Pitlsburg , for he was subjecl-

village of the Rev. Mr. Boord.

that It had been but a joke on his

A German Widow Must Pay Because
Her Husband Was Killed.
Berlin , Oct. 1. Officialism and red
tape long have been made fun of In
discussing Germany , but the following
Instance Is a matter of record :
Last December 23 Doctor Koolpln , a

provincial authorities now have sent
a claim to Frau Koolpln , his widow ,
demanding $2 spout at the time of the

GIVE YOUR HAIR A REST.
A New Cure Is Belnfl Tried by New
New York , Oct. 1. Rest cure for
the hair Is being practiced by Amer
ican society women. It requires that
they give up their social engagements
for a week , but It rewards them with
lustrous , healthy hair In addition to
giving them n chance lo relax from
the strenuous rush of social calls.
Autumn Is the best time for Iho rest
curd , as the hair thins out and often
gives women much alarm. During the
cure vanity compels the women to re
main In hiding except to their most
intimate friends. Rats and hair struc
tures are discarded. The hair is per-
milled lo hang loose. There are no
curls. No hat Is worn and the sun Is
permitted to shine on the hair , giving
It a rich luster. It is brushed fre
quently and the hair Is secured In cells
rather limn In curls , bul as few plus
as possible are used lo hold Iho cells

New York. Sept. 27. Adeline Ge-

Ihe sleamer Kronprinz Wilhelm ,
brought wllh her a new husband , a
determination to make this a fare

'Is-lt , ' nor anything so dreadful it is
'I-sIl , " and I wish you would remem

Mr. Isltl himself didn't seem to care

reads as follows : "We , Iho under
signed cllizens of Iho United States ,
petlllon your honorable body lo abolish -
ish Ihe lower house of congress. As
now constituted we have n one-man
government , as Instanced by the supreme
premo courl knocking out the great
income tax measure by a changed vote
by one of Us members. Wo believe
the senate competent , endorsed by the |
president , to pass all laws sufficient to ,
govern this American republic and
would bo more efficient and would bo
passed with much loss friction. Wo
favor their election by a direct vote of
Ihe people ; lhal Iholr terms bo six
years ; to meet biennially ; salaries
same as now , to bo earned and drawn
only years of session. Seems to us as
constituted now the lower house of
congress' duty Is only to Introduce
bills ; 21,940 Introduced last session ;
salaries with perquisites amounting lo
over Ihreo million dollars annually.
This amount Is neceFsary to save as
the expense of this republic Is running
mountains high over a billion dollars
annually and still growing. Wo In
vite and urge all parties to unite with
us In accomplishing those much do-
sired reforms and trust In God , the
president and the senate to enact laws
Just to all. "
