damage was done. Klippln made n forty yard run, pushing
off Mains and Sweeney, making n touch down. Moslicr kicked
goal. Seme 32 too. This ended the game us fains seoie
was concerned. I )oane played desperately from this on and
once or twice it looked as if each side was anxious for a slugg
ing match. Much ciedil is due to Captains Mains and John
ston for piompt action at the light time. When time was
called Doane had the hall in the center of the field.
Mains, the big natuied fellow that he is, took his defeat
giacefully and ate supper with the victorious team, after which
he spent an hour or two 111 pleasant conversation with the "old
gold" backers. The joyful news had been sent to Lincoln by
Manager Chandler and a huge ciowd with the band and other
noisy instiumenls assembled at the depot to welcome home
the champions. Hut the train as usual was three houis late.
When the team did finally airive it was after two o'clock A. M.
and in spite of the falling snow seven of the faithful were
still waiting, and each made himself useful by lelieviug the
stiffened wauiois of their baggage. It is probable that not
moie than one more game will be played this sc.ison by the
