THE OMAHA DAILY BEE : SUNDAY. OCTOBER 10 , 18'KS. "BILL-HEADED" PARKER. IIK WAS A HI-UO TO THE VERY LAST. lly Albert Hrltt. Copyrighted by the 8. S. McClure Co. , UJS. When George Parker made his first ap pearance on the foot ball field at Clevedon college about two weeks after the term be gan , he came unheralded and unknown. The foot ball enthusiasts had been busy for days discussing the merits and quallfi-i cations of the various new men who had ] coino up for the first time that year and were trying for positions on the team. Hood foot ball material was scarce at Clove- don , and the captain and the coach wcro at their wits' end to construct a winning team with the candidates who bad thus far ap peared. The very day that Parker made his Initial appearance they had held , a short council In the directors' office at the gym- tinilum before going on the field for the aft ernoon practice , nnd tbo outlook , as they viewed It at that time , was gloomy Indeed. Candidates for positions behind the line wcro many and some of them gave promise of developing Into good players , but tbo linemen , especially the tackles , left much to bo desired at the close of their conversa tion. tion.Shaw Shaw , Hie coach , expressed himself very forcibly as to the qualification of at least one of the players. "I tell you , Arnold , we must get some llfo Into that line , or the best backs In the world won't win games for us. Now , -there's Brlco at IcfUtackle. He's big and strong enough to stop a freight train , but ho plays as though ho were deaden on hla foot , it wo only had some man to go la against him on the scrub eleven and wake him up and give him a bit of a scare he might amount to something , but as It Is ho'n about as lively as an Ice wagon. " All this was too obvious to elicit any thing more than a very gloomy acquies cence from the captain , nnd the two men tramped out through the gymnasium to the practice field , and here they found Parker for the first time among the crowd of youths passing and kicking the ball. He was of medium height , rather light but firmly built , resembling the other young men around him In general appearance , except for a rather uqusual squareness of jaw and levelness of gaze. Ho came to Clevedon from an obscure llt- tln academy In a distant state , where he had prepared for college. The captain of the scrub cloven had noticed him lu chapel In the morning and afccrwnrd had hunted him out and having learned by dint of card questioning that bo had played foot ball and * at least knew the rudiments of the game , had asked him to come out to the field In the nfocrnoon and bavo a try at itho second cloven. The second , or scrub eleven , bo It known , Is composed of the candidates who are de nied a place on Bho 'varsity and who yet , for the sake of the sport and In the hope that ono day promotion may find them out , are willing to work on without glory or reward unless they find them In the hnrci practice game played dally with the 'varsity. From the ranks of the scrubs come the substitutes for the 'varsity and n goad player In the former may well dare hope to bo chc.sen for the "varsity tbo next year. It Is , as one may see , a sort of apprenticeship or training school through which ono must pass before he reaches the 'varsltty. n. It had been the bane of the scrub cap tain's llfo hitherto that he had not been able to find any man In his miscellaneous lot who was able to play a hard enough game ngalnst Brlce , the 'varsity left tackle , cltl.or to cause that ! gentleman any particular Us- convenience or to satisfy the demands ol Shaw. They had all made the mistake o ( "bucking" straight Into him nnd being tea a man Inferior In weight and muscle to Brlce , who was a glanB In size , If not In Intellect , the result may bo Imagined. Thus It happened that In sheer desperation I'urker was chosen on this , his first night out , to go In against Brlce and If possible frighten him Into Improving his playing. As the two men looked each other ovet for a moment before the ball was put In play Brlco thought ! to himself , rather con temptuously , that he would have nti trouble with this stripling , but after Parker had broken through two or three times on plays around his end and downed the man with the ball , he began to realize that he had a very unusual sort of a scrub to deal with and that 1C would require eomelhlcR very different from his ordinary style ol practice game to keep this fellow occupied , After he awoke to this fact Parker's Jot be came rather harder nnd he was forced to content himself with un occasional tackle be hind the Interference when the runner -vaa slow or the ball was poorly passed. But the climax came Just before the close of the fifteen minutes' practice. The 'vars ity had carried the ball down the field di rectly in front of and about twenty ynrdE from the scrubs' goal. Parker had become Bomowhat used to thovarslty _ | play by thlt time , and when he sovrtbo fullback drof back and the halfbacks move out from and back of their regular positions he knew thai * goal from the field wus to bo tried. Here v.is his last chance to outwit the now full ) awakened Brlce. Instead of moving out as he might hnvc been expected to do In order to get a clearci field and open the line , ho moved In close and made a feint as though Intending to dive between tackTe and guard , which was Jusi the sort of a play It was the delight ol Brlcc's heart to stop. Ho was practical ! ) immovable , and woe to the unlucky morta who attempted to "go through" him. Notlv Ing , however , was farther from Parkcr'i mind than the attempting of such a feat Instead , as the ball wan suappcd , he whcelei out quickly , caught Drice's arm in his our and. whirling upon him as on n pivot , threw that worthy fiat on his back and rushed a tie fullback just In time to block a well- directed try for goal. The men on the side-liner cheered hiatlls for the plucky scrub tackle and the coucl gladdened his heart with a few words o commendation , while the discomfited Brlci hnd a bad fho minutes explaining to tin captain how It all happened. After that Parker's play was careful ) : natched by both Shaw and Arnold , and Brlci was warned that unless he looked shari and worked hard ho might yet lose the posl Uon which ho had begun to look upon a peculiarly his own. Under this stimulus h Improved wonderfully and the hopes of th rooters rose again as they saw the line gro\ stronger and faster day by day. The great game of the season for which nl V * the others were but a preparation , was th ODO with Hanover college , and was to b played this year at Clevedon. For three years the yellow and blue of Hanover had waved triumphant and their team was re- Dorted to bo In better condition than ever. At last the great day arrived and tlo morning train brought with It the Hanover team and n great crowd of stude'.ils already boasting of the victory that was sure to be theirs. Odds were offered freely , but the Clevedon boys , mindful of. the lessons of former defeats , were slow to bet , and much Hanover money went begging. Tbo day was an Ideal one for foot boll , crisp nnd coo)1 ) , with that suspicion of frost In the air that puts every pliycr on his incttlo and makes every nerve tingle with euro human Joy of living. On such a day even a disordered liver loses Its aacondaney over the mind , and the blood , HCCR through the veins In an exhilarating flood. In spite of the lateness of the season , the : lo u clipped turf wan green and soft as velvet , and the field , lined on cither sldo with bleachers filled with gaily dressed , ribbon-bedecked crowds was an Inspiring sight. Hvcry one In the Uttta town , without regard to age , sex or present condition of servitude , had turned out to witness what proved to be n battle royal. Hanover , with their usual good fortune. a low , iwlft kick that sent It straight at one of the big Hanover guards. Taken by surprise , Instead of holding It , ho let the ball bound back from Ills broad chest straight toward Parker , who was rushing down the field. As the ball bounded toward him , remembering the Injunction of the , coach never to try to pick up a boll unless he had a clear field before him , he threw himself full length at the coveted oval and gathered It In his arms. At the same moment tbo unlucky guard rushing from the other direction to repair his error , stumbled over the prostrate form and , whether It was Intentional or acci dental , no ono ever know , struck poor Par ker full In the face with the too of his heavy hlioe , tutting a deep gash above his left eye. To the Clevedon supporters on the sldo lines It seemed as though nn evil fate was pursuing them. There was no one to take Parker's place , and how could ho ( play with n deep cut In his head nnd the blood streaming down his face ? But they failed to recognize the spirit of the boy , and when the coach tried to lead htm from the field ho flatly refused to bo taken away. "Let mo stay the game out , " ho pleaded , and then , as a shrewd afterthought , ho added : "Who'll you put In ray place , anyway ? " The force of this argument struck the coach and , pleased with the boy's grit , he had no alternative but to yield , and back Into his place went Parker , with his bloody face and a handkerchief bound round his head. If ho had played hard before he played tike a demon now , but the team was going down bill fast. The men had lost heart , and with ever-increasing swiftness the Hanover - over wedge ground its way down the field frankly , "no don't do that In the regular school , you know ; only In the Sunday- school. " "Momma , I caught a soldier ! " This Is tvhat a llttlo girl said the other day as she dragged ono of the returned boys In blue Into a fashionable- residence on Capitol hill , relates the Denver Times. "Why , Dorothy ! " exclaimed the flustratcd mother , "arn't you ashamed to be so rude ? " nnd then she turned hr attention from the llttlo one and began to apologize to the bronzed veteran of Santiago. "You needn't apologize , mum , " said the soldier , "I was Just going down the street here when I met the little girl and she grabbed hold of mj hand and said I had to go with her. She is so near llko my own llttlo girl down in my homo lu Xow Mexico that I could not help but baby her a little. " "I just done It 'cause sister and me had n bet mammo. Sis Is old enough to have fel lows and I ain't , but I bet her the gum that I would catch a soldier before she did , and I did got him , too. " This pleased the boy In blue and , planting a kiss on the llttlo check , ho lifted his hat to the mother and walked away. Ho was one of the Hough Riders and was on his way home to New Mexico. r.ossir AIIOCT NOTISU PEOPLE. Gladstone had a wonderful memory , and , llko many men so gifted , -was rather testy with these who wcro not. At a dinner on one occasion ho asked Lord Oranvllle If bis lordship had taken part In a certain di vision In- the House of Commons. Lord Qranvlllo said too did not remember , where upon Gladstone said In an amazed tone : HE WHIRLED HIS HUSKY OPPONENT HALF HOUND AND RUSHED AT THE FULL-BACK LIKE A TIQER. won the toss and chose the north goal , with the wind at their backs. Burrows , the Clevedon fullback , swung his too Into the pigskin and sent It whirling well down Into the enemy's country , with the ends close after It. and the battle was on. Hanover sent their backs around the Clevedon ends for a few short gains and then lost the ball on n fumble. Clevedon herd It for a few clays and lost It , and so the battle raged. Back and forth , In the center of the field , they fought. Occasionally a long kick by the fullback would drive the ball down the field , and ono goal or the other would bo temporarily endangered , but soon the ball would be carried back to the center and the struggle would be begun again. The teams , were so evenly matched that neither n-as able to gain more than a temporary advan tage over the other , and the first half closed without either having scored. For the first live minutes of the second half It was the same story over again , but after ono of Hanover's fierce rushes 'nto the line a figure was seen stretched on the ground , and a thrill of apprehension tan along the side linen. "Who Is It ? " Is he Hanover or Clevedon ? " "What subs have we ? " were some of the questions anxiously asked. ' , To the dismay of the Clevedon contingent. It was discovered In a moment that It waa Brlco , the big left tackle , whoso lame ankle had finally succumbed to a severe wrench. For him to continue longer In the game was out of the question , but who was there to take his place ? The only man wh6 had practiced In that position was Parker , and when the "rooters" saw him strip of his sweater and trot across the field obedient to the captain's summons their hearts sank within them. What chance would such a green stripling as he have against such a heavy experienced player as the Hanover tackle , but the captain remembered Parker's play against Brlco and held bis place. IV. The first play demonstrated that whatever else ho might be Parker was no coward. Whenever there was a rush through his side of the line he was generally found at the bottom of the heap when the mass of men untangled Itself. But the fierce , determined , bulldog game that Hanover was playing was beginning to tell and slowly the ball was being carried nearer the coveted Clovedou soal. Fifty yards , forty-five , forty , until the ball lay on the 20-yard line , and heie the advance stopped. Three times theJIanovcr backs drove headlong Into the Clevedon line , only to bo held and thrown'back again. It waa the old guard r.t Waterloo over again. One inoro play and the ball must go to Clovedou. But the goal was straight ahead and only SO yards away , nnd aVell- dlrrcted drop kick would put Hanover flvo points to the good. The fullback dropped back and every ono know what was coining. Every man waa crouching low in the line with his muscles tense and every sense alert watching the ball and the man oposlte him. Back went the ball to the fullback and after It the Clevedon quarter-back , dodging quickly through n hole between center nnd guard , but just too late. The ball barely cleared Ms fingertips as It sailed up Into the air and straight between the goal posts. A clean kick and the Hanover blachers roared and waved their approval. Parker. In the rush of the moment , was conscious of nothing but a mad desire to tear his way through the line and reach the fullback , but , struggle as he would , the man opposite him blocked him bard nnd low and his effort was futile. On the Clevedon eldo of the field there wag a gloomy silence that was almost tangible. Only seven mlnutco to ploy and the score 5 to 0 cgalnst them. Burrows put the ball In play again with Stt THAT IS ON It charms with its flavor , delights with its taste and conquers with its purity and high quality. VAL.BLATZ BREWING Co. MILWAUKEE. U.S.A.

Ever since Thursday they have been departing , for there Is to be another congress In Chicago the coming week. It would eecm that ouo meeting after another would wear thcso energetic creatures out , but their zeal evidently supports them In .ho fatiguing work. Of those remaining In town Mrs. Sarah S. i'latt of Denver , vlco president of the Gcn- ral Federation of Women's cluba , and the iresldent of the Woman's club of Denver , Is ono of the moat practical and caru&ct workers. In speaking of the advantage ut ho women's congresses , Mrs. I'latt said that they enabled women from nil parts of the ountry to exchange Ideas , compare their methods of work and broaden their views on 11 the Important questions of the day. Mrs. ? latt Is Irrevocably in favor of the untlin- ted club. While conceding that the old , small clubs , literary and social , were of un doubted benefit In awakening Interest In the lub. their period of usefulness has now massed. With the great problems that con- tout all thinking people , all lines of social barriers should bo abolished and the society woman eliould work shoulder to shoulder with the laboring woman. The Woman's club of Denver Is ono of the argcst In the country , having 1,000 members and an "extension" membership of 330. This branch of the club Includes the women In remote districts who would othcrwlso bo dc- irlvcd of the advantages of a club. The main lub has eight departments , the homo , the education , the art and literature , the phil anthropic , the scientific and philosophical , the city Improvement , to which mcu are eli gible , the music and the reform. The homo department consists of a schoo of domestic science , in which girls ant women are taught the rudiments of cooklns and housekeeping , and the duties and tin difference In these duties of mistress ant maid ; and five kindergartens for the pool children with a reading room for th ( scholars. The educational department concerns It' self with the bettering of the public school ! and the school commissioners , the study o the labor problems and runs a noon schoo for newspaper boys and other urchins , will the co-operation of the school authorities By the efforts of the art nnd literary de partment many pictures have been put litho the schoolhouses and their walls have beci decorated. IMiiRrcc Ciitrileii "Work. The phllanthroplcal branch has devotei Itself chiefly to the Plngree garden work Last year in Denver seventy-five famllle wcro cared for at a total cost of $250 , am their crops brought $2,500. In Philadelphia where the work is carried on by men hlrei by the city , forty-five families were helpei at a total cost of $2,500. Of course th Denver women gave their time , but th result points a moral. The work Is kept u during the winter by teaching the wome sewing and the like. Last year three faml lies were made Independent and took u land In the country. The departments of science and phlloso phy are mainly devoted to study , but the have -charge of the traveling library of th state. The work of the reform division Is don In looking after the state institutions , sug gestlng Improvements , and trying to get th best officials for Important positions. Sanitary work , local option laws and gen eral Improvements come under the provlnc of the city department of the club. Though the musical branch Is largely fo pleasure , It has Instituted many free con certs In different parts of the city. By th working of this club the scope of women' cluba is well illustrated. In speaking of the suffrage question Mrs Platt said that a woman's right to vote wa demanded by justice and that the fanclei evils accruing from woman's voting wer merely Imaginary. Yet undoubtedly 1 would bo better for women to learn parlin mentary laws and study before she voted If chairs of business training wcro Intro duced in all women's colleges their benefi would bo enormous , for , while many womei may never need to use the knowledge thu gained , It Is always well to be prepared Suffrage has not made the Colorado womei unwomanly , but more womanly , for a clea stream of water cannot bo turned into muddy one without leaving Its mark. In Mrs. Plait's opinion there Is no "nei woman , " but a now man , who has come t regard woman as his peer nnd helpmate 1 solving the problems of the world and I elevating Its morals.
