That tho now men are not showing up In

FOOTBALL AT WKSLYEN.
Tho outlook for a fjotball team at
Weslcyun university this year, Is much
hotter than It has been In any provlous
year. But this Is not saying much. A
scmblanco of u team Is ippoarlng ut
pructlco each night, und It will not bo
surprising If a good urllclo of football
results beforo tho season doses. Tho
team will avorago rathor light, tho heav-
lest man weighing but 1S3 pounds, and
others running us low as 135. Tho team
will go to Tabor la., tomorrow to play
tho Tabor collogo toam. Tho only other
gamos jollnltoly arranged aro with Ne
braska stato university Octobor 31, and
possibly Doano a weok from that date.
Tho dally practice la hold from 4 to 0.30
each evening, and tho boys aro coming
out In a very encouraging way.
A class football league will bo formed
for tho purpose of having a schedule of
regular games during tho season. Tho
officers of tho leaguo will comprise tho
managers of each of tho class diss
teams, which will composo the member

OTIS SKINNKH AT Til 13 LANSING.
Was Hamlet really mad or was his mad
ness only feigned? This Is a question that
lias long been in dlsputo with tho students
of Shakespeare. On tho ono bund it bus
been hold that tho madness was real, that
tho news of his father's murder and tho
murrlugo of his mother to his uncle af
fected his mind to that extent that the
mind of tho prlnco really hecamo affected
by that dread disease which the learned
physician now calls "melancholia in an
acuto form, superinduced by a severe
shock to tho nervous system," a form of
mania which seem, even In theso enlight
ened days, almost Impossible of cure, nnd
that his deeds und actions were but the
ravings and doings of a diseased mind.
On tho other hand It has been held by
somo of tho closest students In both this
country and In England, that the mildness
of tho prlnco was but assumed In ordor
thut tho murder of the father and the
outrugo tlono his memory ny his wldow'H
murriage to his brother might bo tho
moro easily avenged by the son. It Is to
this view that Otis Skinner leans. Tho
Hamlet which he presents Is mad, mad
as the proverbial hatter, but all through
tho personation there runs that gleam of
good hard senso which conies not from
a disordered brain, or tho cunning of tho
maniac, but rather fiom tho thinking
brain of tho man who has suffered and Is
playing a part for his own best reasons
and Is assuming a madness to accomplish
his purpose and doing It so well that those
who aro neniest and dearest to him aro
deceived. Thoro Is no passage in tho play
which gives ono the right to declnro that
tho prince Is mad. Tho traditions of tho
stngo for many years simply declared him
to bo a mad prlnco. It Ib only a hundred
years since Shylock was played as a com
edy part and his pleadlUK for law and Jus
tlco were greeted by tho audience with
It was only after long and caroful study
that Mr. Sklnnor decided to discard tho
traditions of tho stngo, and tho result
has been most pleasing, for whorovor ho
has presented this trngeOy ho has boon
greeted with not only tho plaudits of tho
public, but with unstinted pralso from
those captious gentlomon of tho pross who
mako and u.imako tho actor tho critics.
Tho coming ongagement of this actor
and his company, which Is said to ho ono
of tho largest and strongest In tho coun
try, at tho Lansing theatre on Wednes
day evening, October, 14, will be ono of
tho most Interesting events of tho present
season, and will appeal especially to all
lovers of tho great master and tho stu
dents of tho Shakospeareana.

03 "ANY OLD THING."
A feeling of porno lias como over tho
bustling llfo of tho university. Holllcd
mo near to tlio henrt of tho business part
of u metropolitan city, tho spirit of a col
logo llfo h.is boon hard to realize. Yot
In tho last few days a great chango him
been noticed. With nil Its hiistlo tho
disturbance from Iho city bus progressed
unnoticed. Now howovor It Is tho only
inonnco to all otherwise poucof"l col
lege existence. Botno kind and Christian
-Y. M. C. A. buy no doubt-rhurictci'
has performed a divd that will always
stand forth on tlio pages of history (If
he over lets his Identity bo known.) for
ever and a day, I speak of tho man wo
man or child, or whoever elso It might
havo been, who hns been so kind to tho
community us to placo In Inoeuous des
uetude that everlasting bell that used
to clang ut all times of tho day at tho
corner of Tenth and U streets,
Ho was un ordinary looking Individual,
it might be that ho was addtctod at
times to smoking clgurotles, nnd ho was
not iinllko a man who talkod politics oc
casionally. But pooplo stnri'd and "rub
bored" at him as ho pushed. They
seemed to regard him as a monstrosity.
It began to worry him llnully, and ono
tiny ho took occasion to ask n friend why
ho was tho object of so much attention.
"Whyl" his friend replied In astonish
meiit, "You aro not wearing any kind of
Ills knickerbockers aro ptirplo cloth
With yellow run down each soam,
Ills sweater Is Borgoous uudor his ooat
With stripes of scarlet ami cream.
Ills stockings up' ehi'cketed with blue
And turned at tho top with care,
A golf cap of orange blotched with black
Surmounts his crysunthemuni hair.
And doubtless you think him a poster
Built on a Bcardsloy scheme,

PROF. SWEZEY'S VISITOR.
"Is yo' Profissor Swoy.ey?" uslted a veil,
erablo old coloied gentleman, walking In
to tho room as the class In astronomy
was beginning work Tuesday ifttornoon.
"Yes," said tho professor and asked
him his business.
Tho old man said ho wanted to talk
astronomy with him. Ho wus asked to
bo seated until thu clnss wus dismissed,
which lie did.
When tho professor ngnln asked him
what wus wanted, tho old mnii Introduced
"I am do man who dlscobored do now
planet!" said ho.
This immediately staggered tho pro
fessor, but ho qulokly recovered hlmsolf,
and asked how It had been done. In re
ply to this tho visitor said that ho had
been carried up to heaven and had soon
It that way. Ho wanted to borrow the
university telescope, and llnd tho planot.
Ho was somowl.nt disappointed when ho
learned that tho Instrument was so small
but nevertheless, ho Is coming up ns soon
as It Is mounted, and will search tho
heavens for his newly found planet.
A Schemo Tl.nt Failed "Good grac
ious," ho cried, "was that a roostor 1
hoard crowing thon7" "Yes," sho said,
"but don't hurry away. Tho pooplo
around bore won't bo up for an hour
yot." Noxt day ho learned that her
father had an educated roostor that
crowed every night at 10:30 o'clock, and,
of course, tho nintoh Is off. Cleveland
"I don't understand why It Is," said
tho mild young man, "that football play-

"Wore you over at a social function
whero refreshments wore served7"
asked Miss Cayonna. "Of course."
