OLDEN TIME FOOTBALL.
In the year 1583 a Puritan, named
Philip Stobbes, published a book in
which ho describes football as then
played In a manner which Is to us both
quaint and amusing, but which shows
tho gamo In its practices and conse
quences to have been unchanged by
the passing of over 300 years. Master
Stubbes thus dl&courseth:
"Now who Is so grossly blind that
seeth not that these aforesaid exercises
not only doe withdraw us from godli
ness and virtue, but also hallo and
allure uo to wickedness and sin? For
as concerning football playing I pro
test unto you that it may rather bo
called frier dllo kind of fygtho than a
play or recreation a bloody and
murthorlng practice than a folowly
sport or pastime. For dooth not every
ono lyo in walght for his advorsarlo,
seeking to ovorthrowo him and picko
him on his noso, though It bo uppon
hard stonos, in ditch or dale, in valley
or hill, or whatever place soever it be
heo careth riot, so heo have him downe;
and ho that can servo tho most of this
fashion ho is counted the only fellow,
and who but ho? So that by
this moans sometimes their nocks aro
broken, someUmes. their backs, some
times their legs, sometimes their arms,
sometimes their noses gush out with
blood, sometimes thoir eyes start out,
and sometimes hurto in ono placo,
sometimes in another. But whosoever
scapoth away tho best gooth not scot
free, but is either forewounded,
craised, or bruised, so as he dyoth of it
or else scapoth very hardlio; and no
marvaile, for they have the sleights to
meet ono betwixt two, to dash him
against the hart with their elbows, to
hit him under the short ribs with tholr
griped fists and with their knees to
catch Mm on tho hip and pick him on
his neck, with a hundred such murth
orlng devices." K, U. Weekly.
