him had failed, touching the ball down
between the goal posts. Pace kicked goal
with neatness and despatch and Waterman
thought Doano had had enough for one day
and called time. This deprived Mr. Fuller
who, according to the newspapers, never
misses goal, of a chance to show his "skill"
(the quality in which the whole team has
been advertised as excelling) and left the
Nebraska 28, Doane 0.
President Perry of Doane was seen on the
field during the game.
Mains, Williams and Fisher appeared to
be Doano's reliable men.
Pace allowed his injuries to wait till the
half was over. He has a confirmed habit of
playing in n crippled condition with more
vigor than ordinary.
Mains is well known to Nebraska men by
reason of his long service in the Doane
ranks. Ho is deservedly popular, being as
good a fellow as he is player.
Tont surprised his best friends. His
runs around the end were the object of more
applause than any other plays of the game,
unless perhaps Shue's brilliant tackle.
Shue, Pace and Oury have the genuine
foot-ball hair. With Johnston's pad over
his ear, Dern's nose piece, Flippin's chaffing
and Hopewell's general aggressiveness, the
team makes a formidable impression on the

There is a great deal of sham about the
World's Fair part of Chicago. The model
hotel may have a stone front, as the man
who grabs your baggage at the station as
sures you, but it isn't well to inquire too
particularly what is back of that, nor to rap
on the walls, nor to examine the frescos
closely. You will discover strange substi
tutes for things.
It isn't wise to grow inquisitive over what
is brought you to eat at a World's Fair cafe,
or you may not eat at all. It would ,take
very little to convince you that the cakes
they brought you for breakfast were made of
ground sawdust, and tliPt the maple syrup
was better if left unanalyzed.
And then the Fair itself, with its sham
marble and sham gold, its wax men and
models that perplexed Uncle Jeremiah so.
And if you stamp on the grass close beside
one of the big buildings you feel that the
very ground is sham.
And the funny thing about it is that you
soon get so you don't care whether a thing
is real or not in Chicago.
Chicago is very proud of herself. She is
proud of her money, proud of her energy,
pioud of her sky-scrapers and elevated roads,
but above all she is proud of her one great
tradition. She glories in the remembrance
of the great fire. Instead of sitting down
and shuddering over the thoughts of that ter
rible ninth of October twenty-two years ago,
Chicago has a gala day, and hoists her flags,
and goes out en masse to the Fair grounds
and fills every nook and corner of them, and
shouts and yells tfye whole day long in honor
of herself. Chicago has forgotten all the
horror of the great fire, and seems to rejoice
over it. She has nothing but honor and ap
plause for Mrs. O'Leary's cow. Surely no
other beast that ever kicked a lantern over is
so celebrated. Now I don't suppose that
cow was different from other cows, but she
may liavo had in her some pure Chicago
push. Yet I almost believe that if it were
