Whon everyone had become chilled
through mid tho ammunition was ox
hiiiiHtod wo nmdo a count of tho flHh.
There were fourloon In nil, averaging
over ol on inches In length. Some woro
bucIuis uiul Homo woro trout. When
wo got buck to cam i 'hat night, tired
but willxiW'd, there was a feast lit for
the gods, and tho supper dishes stnyed
unwashed until morning.
After a week's work at 12aglo Crag,
Prof. Harbour sent half ot tho party
twelve lnlli-s west to a now location In
Middle AVar Uonnol canon. Vhls place
was roportod to be full . rloh mate
rial, dlrferlug slightly from tho form
of corkscrew with which we woro al
ready familiar. The tent was pitched In
a clearing In tho midst of a thicket of
birch trees. A stream ran within a
few rods of the lent. King, who was
always a great man for a bath, built
a brush dam on the edge of tho cloarlng.
The water was nearly as cold as leo
and a bath on a chilly morning was ex
hilarating, If not Intoxicating, to Judge
frmu the yells emitted by the bather.
The corkscrews were on tho rldgo
some jGO feet above our camp. It seem
ed disheartening to look up tho al
most perpendicular cliff and think It
had to be climbed. It was a long and
tedious ascent. Wo took It In three
stages, at each ono of which breath was
a much sought article. And then after
yo had nmdo It and became rested
work was Impossible, on account of the
We spent a few days at work on
the ridge ami then tho rest of the party
Joined us. Next day wo moved our
camp to tho top of the rldgo to bo
nearer our work. .From there we could
look out east along tho whole Pine
rldgo. Tho bad lands were at tho north
aud( to tho west appeared Laramie
.peak and Haw Hide Hutto with the
Hookies In tho distance.
Tho ridge above Wur-Uonnot canon
was once tho scene of much industry,
Hero the Sioux had their arrow point
manufactory. Along tho rldgo they
shot tho eagles, the feathers of which
they used In making war bonnets. Kv
ery now and then wo found tho piles
of Hint chips whore the squaws sat and
made arrows for their bucks. Occas
ionally wo found a perfect arrow.
On ono of tho most prominent buttcs
near our camp was onco tho scene of a
battlo between tho Sioux and Crows.
Jllslory or tradition does not tell who
won that light.
It Is said that one of tho bands was
entirely exterminated, and tho bodies
left for the coyote and tho buzzard. The
Held Is covered to this tlay with frag
ments of human hones and arrow
After a stay of a fortnight we llnlsh
ed or rather drew our work to u close In
the Dneinondellx bods. Wo broke camp,
packed our wagons, and started across
the JIat creek basin to a little town
Called Adele, at the foot of tho Pino
ridge. Adele was some sixty miles
away, and wo inadu tho distance n a
dihe of a day and u half. We spent
tin- next day In the llttlo bad lands,
which are within two mllos of town,
and on tho Fourth of July wo started
for Hot Spilngs by rail.
Tin-re v.m mot our driver with teams
and saddlo horses, and at once started
for the big bad lands.
The water, although plentiful, Is
muddy, so muddy that tho only moans
of distinguishing It from mlro Is by
putting a stick In it, If tho stick stands
up it Is mud, If It falls down It Is wator.
The only thing that makos llfo bearable
in the bail lands is the abundance of
fossils and the thought of getting out
We spent two weoks in that region
getting out a good deal of material.
The most Important of our discoveries
this year were thoso of a protocorns, a
deer-like animal with six horns, and
two saber-toothed lions, ono smnll and
one large, both of which aro now spe
cies. There Is but ono protocoras skull
In exlstenco and that Is at Princeton.
It Is not In as good preservation as the
ono wo obtained.
AVhllo In tho bad lands we were vis
ited by an Indian half-breed. By In
dian cunning ho succeeded In hobbling
ono of our horses over the hill and out
of sight of our camp. Afterward by
mistake -being so accuHtomod to thlov
lng that he lost his precaution ho rode
the same horse into our camp, A llttlo
persuasion at tho ond of a Winchester
decided tho point of ownership. The
hoi so remained with us.
Cuator, S. 1)., was reached after a
couple of days, and from there wo "Ki
lted "Wind cave. From there wo drove
to Doadwood and bnck, and then the
party olosod. Wo shipped over a ear
load of material, which was mndo up of
some seventy largo boxes.

UNDKU IMFFICHI3NT HUI.KS.
Two sets ot rules for football have
boon adopted this year, ono by Yalo
and Princeton, and the othor by Har
vard, U. of P. and Cornell.
Yalo and Princeton allow only one
man to start and only three men to
group before tho ball Is put in play.
This change will do away with all mass
or momentum plays. Harvard makes
no change from last year's rules gov
erning momentum plays. Princeton will
play under tho now rules, and Harvard,
U. of 1. and Cornell will bo governed
by last year's rules with regard to mass
Several othor amendments have been
made by the Yalo-Prlnceton Associa
tion and Harvard, U. of P. and Cor
nell. Tho now fair-catch rule govern
ing Yule and Princeton does not re
quire that the man Intending to make
tho fair catch shall hold up his hands.
Ho Is required to make a mark with his
hoel, and must not advance beyond
that mark. As amended by Harvard,
IT. of P. and Cornell, tho player does
not rnlso his hand, and after having
caught tho ball ho cannot run with It,
but may pass It to one of his own
side, who can run with It or kick It,
otherwise It must bo put In play at the
spot whore the catch was made.
Utile 14, as amended by Harvard. U.
of 1'. and Cornell, reads: There shall
bo two umpires, a referee and a lines
man, who shall be nominated by tho
captains and confirmed by tho faculty.
Athletic committees of the respective
universities, Yale and Princeton, will
have one umpire, a referee, a linesman
and an assistant linesman. Any olliclal
may disqualify a player under the rules,
subject to the approval of the umpire,
who may appeal to both the referees
and the linesmen for testimony icgnrd
lng cases of unnecessary roughness
and unfair tactics. Among the duties
or the ollllelnls, Harvard, U. of P. and
Cornell require tho referee to give tes
timony in all cases of fouls or viola
tions of tho rules seen by him, to eith
er of the umpires, who shall accept
such testimony as conclusive, and forth
with Impose tho penalty for the of
fense committed. The kick-off rule Is
amended by Yalo and Princeton so
that if either side forfeit the ball twice
by kicking It into touch, It shall go
down as first down at the center of the
Hold to opponents. Aftor a fair catch,
according to tho Yalo rule, the ball
may be put In play by any player of
the side having made tho fair catch.
Tho olt-sldo rush Is amended by Yale
and Princeton to read: A player Is
put ott sldo If, during a sorlmmnKo he
gets In front of the ball, or If the ball
has been last touched by one of his own
sldo bohind him. No player can, how
ever, bo cnlled off side In his own goal.
No player when off sldo shall touch
tho ball except on fumble In scrimmage,
nor with his hands or arms Interrupt or
obstruct an opponent until again on
Kule 1!B ,as ainonded by Harvard, U.
of P. and Cornell, loads: No playor shall
lay his huuds upon or by the use of his
hands or nrms Interfere with an oppo
nent bofoie the bull is put In play. Af
tor the ball Is put In play the players
of the side that has possession of the
ball can obstruct the opponents with
tho body only, except the player who
runs with the ball. Hut tho players of
the side which has not the ball can
use hands and arms to push tho oppo
nents out of tho wny In breaking

Why Is It that tho girls who look tho

ever become general that .when two

HI3WAH13 THIS DOG!
Four well-known university boys,
"musical geniuses," went out serenad
ing In Kut.t Lincoln one night early In
tho week. Toward tho last their voices
began to show signs of wear and at the
last house their one song had lost all
tho beauty It originally possessed. The
next morning the fair maid who lived
at that house, told one of the boys con
ildentlnlly that her father had bought
a dog because there were a lot of hood
lums howling around their house the
night before. The '"hoodlums" have
not serenaded since.
The regudar annual meeting of the
athletic association was held In the

Sandy Grlswold, tho well-known
sporting editor of tho Omaha Hoe in
writing upon tho opening of the present
football season, among other things
says: "Nor Is It tho players alono who
let their hair grow. At all the univer
sities there are always some who could
not be Inducod under any consideration
to enter tho arena, yet who like to
promenade around with long hair and a
sweater, In order that thoy may bo
recognized as part of the push. Some
oven go so far as to purchase a Bwoat
er similar to that glvon to the team, in
order that they may fool some of tho
folks at homo into believing that they
wore "some poaches" while at ;col
logo. This practice should be frowned
upon and the athlete who wins his
sweater on tho college athletic field
should be allowed to wear his souvenir
without being Imitated by would-bo
sports." All of which Is applicable to
Manager Sheldon Bays that If any one
has suits which thoy aro not going to
uso, that thoy could bo used to a vory
great advantago by men who aro quite
anxious to play, but who can't raise
a suit. Bring them around and thoy
will be returned to you.

It Is often the ense that photograph
ers have on hand more or less gelatine
emulsion thnt has become unfit for use.
The silver In this Is valuable and they
would like to know how to recover it.
The following process, given by an ex
pert, will be found both simple and
effectual: Dissolve tho emulsion In
warm water; let It slowly heat until
perfectly fluid; add a small quantity of
hydrochloric acid and boll briskly for
three minutes. The silver Is precipita
ted and remains at the bottom of tho
vessel, while the liquid at the top may
bo poured off. Tho sediment should bo
carefully removed nnd placed In a bot
tle with a tight-llttlng cork. It Is well to
have at hand some simple and Inex
pensive compound for obscuring parts
of negatives. Lnmpblnck added to as
phaltum varnish until tho mixture Is
perfectly opaque will nnswer this re
quirement ndmlrubly. The lampblack
should be of the finest quality and
the compound must bo kept in glass
Motalaisrtlgla, or fourth-toe disease,
has been tho subject of much sclentlflo
discussion of late. The Ledger was ono
of tho first papers to call attention to
this disease. Many patients have been
operated on, the operation consisting
of the removal of a portion of the bono
of the too which had bocomo Inflamed.
A new form of treatment Is that of bo
shaping tho shoo that tho weight will
not come directly upon the ball of tho
foot but slightly back of tho ball and
this Is secured by making tho nnklo and
Instep close fitting and tho too and ball
very broad and easy. Ono physician
advises that a depression bo made in
the solo of tho shoo Just beneath tho
fourth toe, so that there shall ho no
pressure from nny direction. This works
well In some cases but In others tho
surgical remedy Is tho only successful
