There In every prospect that Omaha will
bo a prominent sporting center during the
year 1S08 , the year of the Transmtsnlsslppl
Imposition. Not only are local sport promoters
meters already laying their plans for vigor
ous action , but prominent lights from abroad
are figuring on locating hero for that period.
Charles K. navies , moro familiarly known as
1'aiYion navies spent several days hero dur
ing the past week looking over the field with
the view of establishing an athletic club hereon
on a mammoth scale. Ho made a thorough
Investigation , had numerous talks with many
men who have n sportive tendency and went
away secure In the opinion that the Held
presented Is a most Inviting one.
It Is the parson's Idea to temporarily re
model nium'o hall In South Omaha , occupy
It until spring , and then erect a suitable
coliseum In this city for the stirring cam
paign that will Inevitably open up with the
Inauguration of our great exposition. It will
require , according to Mr. Divles" estimates ,
something like $1,000 tn put the South
Omaha hall In a condition suitable for his
purposes. This sum ho will cheerfully ex
pend If he receives the necessary encourage
ment , lie does not hope tn reap much prnllt
out of th'a ' preliminary enterprise , but will be
thoroughly aatlslled If he makes expcnsen
throughout the winter mouths. That will
afford ample time for the public to become
familiar with his methods , Iho character of
his entertainments and pave the way for
moro elaborate things next - ummer. The
club will bo known as the Trio City club ,
Omaha , South Omaha and Council Illuffs ,
and the Intention IH to give exhibitions In
high claps athletics of all kinds. Including
boxing , wrestling and kindred pastimes.
The horsemen are also all alive to the
prospecis for a surccmful season here next
year , and a ten-days' trotting session and an
extended running meet are as good as al
ready provided for. The Omaha Kalr and
Speed association will hold the light harness
< iifairs , wlille the thoroughbreds will be
niiiimgel by horsemen from Kansas City ,
Minneapolis and Chicago , 'ogethor with a
fair representation froun this city and the
While the outlook for a professional base

circuit Ini 1S9S. C. II. Ilarrlman of DCS
Moines Is now the owner of the Gram !
Huplds franchise , and he writes mo that It
is his Intention to put a team In here If
the sanction of the eastern contingent Is
forthcoming at the Chicago November meet
ing. I have bren urgently Invited by the
president of the Western league to be
present < it this meeting , and with Krank
Handle. Jack Ilaskell , Kuss McKclvey and
ono or two other business men. will go over
to plead Omaha's ease. From the condition
of things existing In the Western at Un
close of the season. I think there Is every
ground on which to base hope that Omaha
will be successful In Its efforts to break Into
Ano"icr possible big attraction for 1S03 Is
an extensive handicap athletic meeting In
accordance with the requirements ot the
A. A. U. of A. , and utvler the auspices of
the Young Men's Christian association.
1'hyslcal Direi tor Harnes , who Is mentioned
in'another column. Is Inteiestlni ; himself
actively in this matter and is positive that
these field d.iy trials would bo a splendid
attraction for transmlsslsslppl year. It is
his Idea to make the affair worthy of the
attendance of many of the prominent
amateur athletes , which means the students
of our big colleges from all parts of the
country. Chicago nnd St. Louis are both
paitlcularly Interested In uiiateur athletics
jiis-t now. and have both recently held cx-
traoidlniinly large and successful meetings.
Mr Han es Is Intimately acquainted with
} Ir Fi.-hlnmi. president of the central sec
tion of the A. A. U.and he Is certain c-r
the he.irty co-operation of this gentleman In
any proj' et that may bo put on its feet here
for the ruin ing ycur.
In addition to the branches of sport al
ready tour-lied upon the gun clubs of this
city and the Itluffs are talking of combining
In thn Interests of a grand free-for-all , HS
well as handicap , ten-day tournament for
Juno next ; the Omaha and Council muffs'
rowing club Is to be reorganized and the
local kernel club to 1'e revived. So , as '
Intimated In tlio outset of this article Omaha
piomlses to the nucleus for much that Is
important and Interesting In a sportsman's
way during the year of the exposition.
The new phjsicnl director of the Young
Men's Christian association has been upon
the grounds for three weeks now and all of
this time bail been spent in putting the gym
nasium In something llko ship shape. The
Kj-m locker rooms , bath room and physical
( llvector'o olllce have been thoroughly over
hauled and denned , papered and painted In
places where most needed , the old apparatus
overbuild ! and repaired nnd some now ap
paratus added. A complete outfit for scien
tific niKisurcMiients nnd strength tests has
been added to the director's oilier , as follows
lows- Grip dynamometer , back and Inln dy
namometer , Mplromcler. wall parallels meas
uring tape anil calipers.
An Indoor base ball diamond has been laid
out on the door of the gymnasium and a
complete equipment for the game purchased.
Athletics will receive especial attention at
monthly contests of the association and a
city championship will bo held during tin-
winter months. A basket ball league will
nteo bu formed nnd play for a banner. Kdti-
catlonal. eorr.-ctlve and recreative gymnastlM
will be laugh' to the different classes. The
physical examination will consist of a careful
measurement of thn bones and muscles ,
strength tests of the principal groups of
musi'Ies , lung capacity , hpjrt rate , and a
careful examination of the vital organs to
ascertain thn lltncun for work. Those exam
inations will occur at the opening and close
of the season's work nnd will give an ac
curate Idea of the benefits derived from thn
exercises taught. In fact. It begins to look
as If the local Young Men's Christian asso
ciation had at last started out on a course
that will bring It up to the rank of the beat
Institutions of this kind In the country.
Mr. names , the new ( ihysic.il director. Is a

end four years with Hose Polytechnic , leaving
the latter to assume charge of the West Side

Omaha may bu congratulhted on having ob
tained such a clean , enthusiastic young
athlete to take charge of Its work and It Is a
foregone- conclusion thut , upon the lines laid
out above , the Young Men's Christian as
sociation will take the place In athletics to
which It Is entitled.

The New York Jockey club has been upheld -
held In Its ruling off of Kllcy Orotman tor
miking n valuable present to a jockey. The
courts h/ivo / decreed finally that Gwnnan
most obey the Jockey club. It lit a groiU
victory for the organization , and makes It
a power In every respect. At the ame time
there la a henttfelt sympathy for the quiet ,
courteous , nervy young plunger who so
plucklly fought for what lu considered his
rights. Grannan made the light against the
advice of his friends , but lie felt that he
could not stay away from tne race track ,
and the fever of gambling urged him on.
If the Jockey club had lost Its case , then
every owner , trainer or Jockey ruled off
for violations of the mien could appeal to the
courts with a view of reinstatement , and
the Grannan case would establish a prece
dent which would result In demoralization
of the turf. Hules would have been value
less , and the Jockey club and the racing as
sociations would have DO power to enforce
them. The decision , however , confers upon
the Jockey club a dangerous power. It can
at will grab any Individual by the back
of the neck and deposit him outside the
gates for good. The opinion restricts the
Jockey club somewhat when It says that
Grannan was ruled off for "diHobcdlemco of
reaionablo rules and regulations. " In future
suits before the courts the case will un
doubtedly depend upon the Interpretation of
rules as to whether they are reasonable or
not. The rule under which Grannan was
ruled off was not unreasonable. Valuable
presents to Jockeys tend to demoralize the
riders , and It was right and proper that
the practice should ceaso. Grannan has
gained considerable notoriety through his
plunging proclivities. Personally he's very
rlcislng and agreeable , and he has many
friends , who at present are quietly pro
ceeding to have him reinstated. This the
Jockey club , Hushed with victory , should
generously do. It has demonstrated Its
power ami can afford to be merciful. It Is
to be hoped that Orannan will be restored
to liLi former standing on the turf.
According to the conclusive evidence of
the games , the three most successful
pitchers of the year In the National
league aie Nichols , Cornell and Huslc two
veterDro end a "kid. " Three men of more
radically varying types of ball tossera could
hardly be found In the whole league circuit.
Nichols Is a man of about 30 and of averigcj
size. His arm is almost never out of condi
tion , has never taken on glasslness and Is
as subtle today as a decade ago. Nichols
has a shrewd face , confident , self-reliant
carriage and a general air of dctcrmlnatlcin.
Ills body Is of the kfcid that never getti ted
fat. he bus the best of habits. Is a good hus
band and father and Is always In training.
Many preliminary foot ball skirmishes
have already taken place , and yet no onw
has . " . line on the leader of the season. M
fact at no time In many years has the
hon.or . been anybody's at the start of the
season as It Is today. The foot ball player
must : Indeed be a prophet who sees his own
finish now. The big four , Princeton , Yale ,
Harvard and Pennsylvania , beg'n ' the season
under new circumstances , very different
from those of last year. Take Princeton for
instance. She losctf four of her regular men
by graduation , and substitutes for these
mils1be provided. This fact will give Cap
tain Cocliran plenty to do , and , llko Jordan ,
his will be a hard road to travel. Galley.
Smith. Brokaw and Church are the men
who drop out of Princeton. The under
graduates who equal them will have to be
skilled players. Princeton will be short In
Its old-time coachers. too. for business en
gagements will prevent ono , at least , of the
very best from doing anything for the te.un
thin year. Pennsylvania Is In luck that
Woodruff will remain another season , and
no ono for an Instant doubts that he will ,
v , , bis inimitable style , nil the vacancies In
a way satisfactory to the supporters of the
red and blue. Hesldes Woodruff and \Vhar-
ton , Pennsylvania luf.es the famous half
back , Charlie Gelbort , e.ad . the strong tackle ,
I''arrar. To an outsider the loss of these
mon would probably convey the Idea that
Ponrsylvanla will not be as strong as last
year , but to a close student of the game
It is no secret that IViir-sylvanla ha.s the
host material of any of the colleges to choose
from , and tint Captain Minds' team will be
fully equal to the famous team of ' 94.
Princeton's Tigers have sprung n new trick
kick. Experimenting along that line 1 ? now
attracting attention in the oast. Ile'ctoToiv
an attempt at goal kicking from the field has
been considered a very perilous thing In i :
big game , but If this now method can be
perfected It would seem that the coveted live
points to be secured would become much
easier to make. According to thn new ylan.
I he fullback stands ntiont five yards back o'
the line , while the quarterback stands on :
of the way and over In the direction of rlsrht
end. This Is how It has been worked : Halrd
was stationed in the fullback position In the
play , whllo Captain Cocliran left his place at
light end and sat down Immediately In front
of the fulbck. ! The center rush ihen s nprel
the ball directly to Cocliran , who Immediately
oluced iho pigskin on the ground In about
the saino position as for a place kick , awl
Halrd kicked. Kicking grills In this way was
several times attempted In the game agalus !
the scrub , but every time It failed. After
the game. In the further practice of the
method , Wheeler and Halrd were both quite
successful In their ti les. The sehemo it-
apparently quite a hazardous one. there being
very little protection to the jitayer who
places the ball , but extreme efforts will be
made to perlcct the play.
Whllo Yale and Harvard are altogether ab-
oorbed In the development of foot ball elev
ens , Cornell , with a keen eye to the future , Is
already at work developing underclass oars
men foe. the future 'varsity crow of the In
stitution that has donu so much to bring up
the grand aquatic sport In this country.
Courtney , tlio veteran coach , ha already
taken thn ambitious lads who want to row In

On Friday last there was nn exciting one-
mlle race on Lake Cayuga between eight-
oared crov > o representing the classes of 1S ! > S ,
ISU'J and 1000 , respectively. At the start ' 09
took Jim lead , which It held throughout the
race. The other two boats were on a moro
oven footing during the first half of the race ,
with 'US , however , slowly pulling away from
the freshmen. At three-quarters of a mile
'I'D. ' who held the middle course , had a good
lead. The seniors spurted In the last quar
ter , but could not overtake the tlect sopho-
morcu whllo " 00 was modestly following In
the wake of the upper clars boats. At the
finish there was about a half length of open
water between ' 99 and ' 98. Hetween ' 9S and
' 00 the open water must have amounted to
nearly two lengths. The official time for
thn mile wus 5:20. :
Apropos of the recent letter I published In
thoje columns from Tommy Ilya.a of Syra-
cii.'o , N. Y. , giving his version of his recent
Interrupted fight with Kid McCoy , Sam
AiHtVi of the Police Gazette says : "It will
amuse these who saw this fiasco , as well as
those who happened to bo In touch with the
lusido history of the affair , to read what
Tommy Hyan has to say for himself In a
letter to Sandy Grlawold of The Omaha lice.
It Is Hlgiilllc.int that Mr. Grlswold published
Ityan's letter In hU extensively read col
umn without a Elngle word of comment.
Ho probably has his own views about Ryan's
chances of beating McCoy , but as the Syra-
cusan has turned tint limelight uprni him
self. Sandy Is content to let It Dicker out
without adding lustre In the shape of
rhetorical pyrotechnics that might be util
ized to advantage upon a moro worthy ob
ject. Ju.it a little bit of history. Several
hours after Hyan and McCoy left the ring
they met in Alderman Mattey'g saloon In
Syracuse After a wordy argument they
posted J500 each and agreed to meet again
on the following d-ay for the purpose of
signing articles for a fight upon the same
Identical terms as the ono which culminated
in the fiasco , llefore McCoy got a chance
to "nail" Hyan for a match , however , the
latter crawled out of It by publishing a
"card" In which ho refused to negotlatu
unless McCoy agreed to weigh In at 160
poirnds. As ho was fully cognizant of the
fact that McCoy could not do that weight
without cutting off a leg It Is obvloiu that
ho was doVig a little blutllng , and his llttlo
mlsslro to GrUwold Indicates that he hasn't
recovered from the habit. "
Now while I have every constderat'on
for Urolhcr Austin I will < M h ro lh l th. °
only reason 1 did not comment on Tom s
letter was the fact thit 1 - " ' ° l consider
any criti .8ni called for As to what I ,
think nbont the respective ability of these !
two men , Is easily told , and mauger my un-
wervlng allegiance to Hyan. If It will do
anybody any good , here goes. I have got
to pay some respect to the opinion of many
of the best Judges of pugilistic affairs In '
the country , the consensus of which Is that
Hyan Is far away and short of a good match >
for the rangy indlnnlan , and consequently ,
that must bo so. While 1 know but llttlo '
personally about McCoy. I have kept close
tab on the sayings of others In regard to h'h '
fighting capacity , and am unwillingly led
to believe that he can. lick Hyan In a fight/ /
to a finish , notwithstanding I think him a
much overrated man. He Is too long and j
wlcldy for the Syracusan , too big and
stung , too clover and too quick with both
hand and foot , and consequently belongs In
a clafs a top higher than Tom's. An/1 still
Hyan may be able to beat him , but I'll
wait until ho docs It before I will bo san-
gulno on the subject. As Hyan truly say ,
McCoy got what reputat'.on he cnjoya by
defeating him , but claims that he was only
enabled to accomplish this by catchtag him
way out of condition , and "conning" him Into
defeat at that , lie that as It may , I am
compelled to give respectful attention to
those who arc qualified to judge , and until
Hyon defeats the Kid , I shall think the
latter the best man , and I will also con
tinue to think tint McCoy la a greatly over
estimated man until ho whips some good
man In his own class , the middleweight.
Ills talk about fighting such men as KHz-
Simmons and Choynskl , however , Is the
varlcst twaddle. They are Just as far above
the Kid. aye , much farther , than he Is pre
sumed to be above Hyan , and either man
would have but an insignificant task In
I uttlng an effectual quietus to his disgust
ing rodomontade. Let him whip Dan
Creedon , there Is the 'boy ' for him to fight ,
let him lick Dan , 1 say. then ho may look
around with propriety for bigger game , ami
then wo will all take off our hats and ac
knowledge that ho Is pretty warm stuff. Do
not let It be understood , however , by what
I have said in the preceding lines that 1
am cock-sure of McCoy's superiority over
Hyan , , for 1 am not. I so as far as I do' o , .
the Judgment of those who ought to know.
Parson Oavlcs , who was here several days
last week , told me that Hyan had away th
beat of the Kid when the bobbles Inter
rupted their recent tight In the fifth round
at Syracuse. He said that whllo this was
so , he did not feel Justified In the opinion
that Hyan could best him. "That fifth
round might have been a flash In Iho pan , "
s'lld Charllo K. , "but If It was not , and
was the real stuff , Hyan can. . whip him any
day of the week. " Davles thinks McCoy's
performance In nowise Justifies the wonder
ful tales that have been told about him , still
ho thinks him a promising mau.
Joe Goddard , the heavyweight Australian ,
who Is to light Sailor Sharkey In 'Frisco on
November 20. passed through this city cn-
rcutc from New York to the coast last
Wedncsdjy afternoon. The big antipodean
Is looking finely , Just as brusque and just
as rugged as lie was the night 1 saw him
lose to Denver Kvl Smith down in New
Orleans four years ago. Ills color Is good ,
lib ejcs bright and ho says he never felt
better In his life. Ho says that he came
over hero to meet the best wo have , would
fast a week for a chance at Corbett , but
prefers Fitzslmmons. From the way he
talks ono would Imagine that he considers
the malodorous Sailor a mere sldo dish.
Goddard doesn't speak very highly of Kid
McCoy. "Why , " said he. "he didn't use the
people right over In my country ut all.
Tlioso who stuck to him In his illness were
the first to bo turned down by him after ho
got well. Those stories that you people have
been printing hero about his winnings In
South Africa are plpo dreams. Of course he
made same money , but when It conies to
running It up into four figures that 'is non
sensical. Ho claims , too , I ce , that ho chal
lenged mo In the Hand. He is a romancer.
Ho would as soon think of facing the
Urltlsh standing army as he would me. He
is actually funny and 1 must say you
Yankees ure the easiest cor.-ied people In
the world. The truth of the matter Is that
when ho was in Johannesburg I offered to
stop him in six rounds or forfeit the whole
puree. Ho said if 1 would make It four
louiida he would accept. I refused and as
soon as ho gets out of reach he begins to
al-uso me. My offer still holds good here.
I can knock him out , despite all his leg
work , In les than cichteen minutes. If 1
can't he can have my purse. "
Of course It Is generally understood that
Crucdon and MoCoy have been matched at
last in earnest , and it looks as If Provi
dence alone could prevent them from meet
ing. This Is certainly good news to the
lovers of the game. All nro anxious to
know just how good or just how bad McCoy
is and all are anxious to knw whether
Creedon really is next man to Fltzslmmons
In the middleweight class. While Creedon
has fought a great deal , boozed and dissi
pated some , he is still inthe bloom of hh
youthful strength and vigor. He Is tickled
half to death over the prospect of meet
ing 'McCoy ' and believes he has a pudding.
And so do I. While Me-Coy may bo long
and rangy and a goot sprinter and all that ,
ho must have a gooj deal more to counter
act the numerous formidable attainments of
the stocky Australian. Dan Is a real fighter.
He uses ono hand as well as 'the other , has
an unerring eye for distance and can hit
llko a trip hammer. McCoy outreaches him
several Inches , but Creedon has a way of
boring In that is marvelous and will take a
lot of punching to do a llttlo of the business
himself. I have refereed two fights In
which Creedon figured as a principal , and
I think I know n llttlo about hkt worth as
a warrior. I tell you. he's all right. He'll
whip McCoy as sure as they meet. Ho will
hammer away at those lean ribs until the
Hosier is no taller than ho Is. Hu has
annihilated greater disparity In size than
ho will bo compelled to this time.
And I can toll you another man who Is
goling to get It In the neck shortly , ami that
Is Kid Lavlgne. I think on the 29th of thl.i
month , ono week from next Friday night.
It will be on the occasion of his second
meeting'With Joe Walcott , the coloied demon
from the llarbadoes. Lavlrjso won from
the shade at Couoy Island simply from the
fact that he was on his feet whrr.i the
twentieth round was ended. The conditions
of that fight were al ! against Walcott. Ho
had to get down to 133 , and to do It ho
had to all hut cut off a teg. This time
the coon has all the best of the agreement ;
They are to weigh In at 0 o'clock In the
afternoon at 135 pounda. which will give
O'llourko's rembrandt four hours and a half
tn nourish himself on beef 'broth end other
building materials. At the lowest ho will
scale 112 when he crawls through the ropes.
And that means a horrible beating for
Lavlgne. I do not believe there Is a man
In the world , not excepting Tommy Hyan ,
who can whip that black boy at 145 pounds.
Ho Is a holy terror , with an arm as long
as a telephone polo and a rap always up
his sleeve that would put a government
mule to sleep. Lavlgne , In tils supreme
gall , or confidence , has overmatched him
self , and the negro will be a 2 to 1
favorite on tlio night of the fight. Those
doul gnnto sports out on the coast are not
to bu fooled In a llttlo matter.llko this.

of the "spoonbill" or shoveler duck , so
cordially hated by shooters In this vicinity ,
Auduhon. the great naturalist says : "The
shovelor walks prettily and I have often ad
mired hU movements In the puddles formed
by heavy dashes of rain In our southern corn
fields , where I have found It In company
with the wood duck , the mallard
and the pintail. Its Illght resembles
that of the blue-winged teal ; and In tender
ness , as well as In flavor. It rivals , as an
art'iclo of food , that beautiful bird. No
sportsman who Is a judge will ever pass a
shoveler to shoot a canvasback. " Pass a
shoveler to shoot a canvasback ! What do

you do It ? I think you would not only para

CUriTIS , Neb. , Oct. 11. To the Sporting
Editor of The Hoe : Having noticed several
communications In your valuable Sunday
edition from different parts of the state
and none from this section , so thought I
would let you know how wo are fixed out
here : Now that the time for quail shoot
ing has almost arrived , I bcllove it would
not come amiss to inform yon concerning
the shooting prospects for this bird this
fall and winter. They are most plentiful
hero , In fact , moro than has ever been
known before. The past season has been an
.Ideal ono for both quail and chicken ; no
cold rains or floods visited us to destroy
the young birds. Most all the old quail
have reared the second brood , which are
alniiHt full grown. Only a few minutes ago
I sighted a covey of perhaps a dozen or- fif
teen quail within a block of Main street.
Of com so they strayed Into town , but It
goes to show that they 'are ' plentiful and
Umo. The undergrowth Ifl quite heavy
along the creeks and In the canyons , which
will afford good protection from the sports
man's gun , and especially the cold storms
of winter , one of which. I believe , will do-
nVroy more birds than the sportsmen do
throughout the season. Chicken , though
not nearly eo plentiful as quail , are by no
moans scarce , and no one need come home
with nn empty big. I read with pleasure
the sporting page of The Sunday tte . espe
cially the "Forest and Field" column , which
would be hard to beat. Wo have excellent
train service , which enables people leaving
Omaha or the eastern part of tlio state In
the morning to arrive hero the same evenIng -
Ing , and leaving hero In the morning to ar
rive at Omaha the same evening. Hush

CLAUKSVILLK , TKX. , May 3rd , 1SD7.
I was sick four months with inflamma
tion of the bladder and other irregularities
nnd troubles and thought sure I would die.
My doctors some way did not give me any
relief. I heard of Wine of Cardui nnd sent
fora book on "Home Treatment of Female
Diseases. " After reading the book in bed
I determined to try Wine of Cardui. After
xising the Wine with Black-Draught three
days I could feel a great change. I took
five bottles altogether and believe it saved
my life. I have had perfect health ever
since , until last week. I felt some symp
toms of the old trouble then. Hut I got a
bottle of Wine of Cardui at once and be
fore I had taken half of it I was all right
again. I recommend Wine of Cardui to
everybody. I don't think there is anything
like it for "Woman's Relicl" .

When a woman's menstrual periods are accompanied by severe pains
or when the time of appearance or duration varies a day or two ,
she is in danger. There is something wrong. To go on without
giving attention to these warning signals means suffering. If long
neglected it means invalidism and untimely death. But every kind
of uterine , ovarian or kidney trouble can be cured by the use of
Wine of Cardui and Black-Draught at the proper time. These
medicines have an unparalleled record
for curing suffering women. They do their LADIES' ADVISORY DEPARTMENT.

the southern gentleman's education to shoot
with the fowling piece , and in the pursuit
of thu bird he has had the great advantage
of an experience that begem In youth
Others shoot quail ardently , handsomely , nt
times brilliantly , but few men ever attain
the quiet certainty ot one of the old-tlmo
southern field shots. In the south the sport
is usually pursued on horseback , with serv
ants to carry the game and ammunition
and to hold the horses. In the north , andl
indeed In any country where small fields
and high fences prevail , the rquall shooter
goes on foot. Dogs trained to hunt In front
o horsemen slow up and cover less ground
when the shooters dismount and follow on
foot , but the latter way of getting to one's
quail shooting Is after all desirable , as It
gives the shooter the Incomparable excrclso
of brisk walking In fresh air.
As I mentioned last Sunday , this Is the
sportsman's Idyllln season , nnd scores of
Omahans are already encamped on the dlffer-
) nt favorite shooting grounds within easy ac-
ress of the city , nnd hundreds of others are
yearning to get away. You remember just
twelve months ago the first night we stood
upon the Haccoon's legendary shores and
watched the sun go down behind the hazy
sand hills ? What a picture of glorious en-
liuntment. Who cared whether the ducks
came In or stayed out. Just then nature was
supplying every want the senses demanded.
Tints not detectable In the atmosphere kin-
lied the quiet lake's surface and not a frag
ment of drifting cloud but found on Its deli
cate texture a perfect image. Every ccond ,
almost , its appearance changed. Now It
smiles in tendercst azure , then a little breath
from the ghostly plains lighted upon Its quiet
surface and a gleam of silvery ripple flashed
ithwart. Then an impolablo oh ado turned It
Into purple , again a vague gray , then tllt-
'ing lights and darks all over , finally settling
Into softest tranquillity and divlnest hues.
How soothing to close the eves and look
back over such scenes. And the ducks , the
next morning ! Do you remember how they
Hew nnd what a bag we made ? Alas , me !
liut those were happy days.
Rimer Frank and Chat Hedlck are after
icnr up In the Wyoming mountains. There Is
an old vet up there a grizzly that Is sup-
'osed to weigh something llko 1,100 pounds
that all the stockmen , ranchers nnd hunters
lave been trying to bug all summer , but thus
Far to no avail. Elmer Frank and Ed Clarke
followed this monster for three days and
nights , hut never got a shot and finally gave
nj ) the chase. Knowing of Chat Hedlck's
prowess as a bear hunter Elmer came down
from the monntalrn last Tuesday and took
the young man back with him. and as soon
as that old gri/.zly hears that ho la In the
country ho will probably climb up on the
highest peak In the neighborhood and Jump
off and kill himself.
All my sportsmen comrades will agree with
mo when I say that tobacco never lias such
delicious flavor oo when ho lends his old
plpo In open cnmp after an exciting day'u
shoot. How the stimulating vapor soothes
the perturbed nerves , what lazy content
ment It brings , and what pleasant fancies It
procreates as you loll back , puff away and
llo.it off Into dreamland , Again , they will
agree with me when I say there Is no cook
ing that can hold a candle to that which the
camp stove affords. Ilolled , stewed , roasted ,
ijaked or broiled over Us blaze or coalu , in the
glow of Its embers or In its ashes , whatsoever
dish It may be there Is none comparable.

The news that the University of Pennsyl
vania Is considering the advisability of en
gaging a new rowing coach Is something
of a surprise to those who have thought that
the crows of thu Quaker Institution had
shown great Improvement under the Instruc
tion of Ellis Ward. To bo suro. they have
not been successful against the crews of
Cornell university , but what American crews
have ? The Pennsylvania crows have lioen
followed < by a largo streak of hard luck for
more than two yeais past , but It has not
been altogether duo to the coieh.
It Is given out in Philadelphia that Edward -
ward Haitian and Jacob Raudaur are both
under consideration as Ward's successor , and
It Is a fact that 'both ' are anxious to demon
strate 'what they can do In the dlrecthn of
turning out oarsmen to compete with the
lads from Ithaca. Hanlau has long desired
an opportunity to prove himself a hotter
traeher of oarsmanship and watermanship
than Charles K. Courtney , anil It Is likely
that now ho may liavo a chanco. If he Is
engaged by the Quakum It will bo all over
with Vale oven for second place among
