Princeton would be much more likely to

the Yale strong man. "The sentiment Is

Hot too powerful to make the contest other

would not have much trouble In getting a
game with any one of the big four on Its
home field, but as for making a two years'
agreement conditioned on a return game,
be would bo pretty sure to fall with Har
vard and Yale. At the present time It
teems to me that Princeton Is the most
likely of any of ths big four to come west
to meet Stagg'e eleven In Chicago."
Probably the last of foot ball In the aeason
of 19(12 will be played at Boulder, Colo.,
Vew'Year'e day between the team of the
North Division High School ot Chicago and
the eleven representing the Boulder prepar
atory team. The Chicago boya have been

President Hadley of Yale, after expressing
a disinclination to give an opinion which
would- do In all parte of the country, aays
that the eastern boya need foot ball to atir
them up, while the westerners need golf to
slow them down.
President Eliot of Harvard In part re
piled : "Foot ball, therefore, seems to me
the least desirable ot college sports. I
cannot think, however, that the prohibition
of the sport would be wise, either" for (
schools or for colleges. It ought to be ao
regulated aa to reduce gradually the evils
which now attend it."
... President Angell ot Michigan thinks that
the sport la manly and proper, but should
be carefully guarded by the college authori

Interest In all branches of athletics Is
unusually great at Wisconsin university
thla year, and forma of eport heretofore
disregarded hockey, curling and water
polo bave been taken up with interest
and clubs formed to play through the sea
son and matches with other teams ar
ranged. Hand ball la reported to be the
most popular sport of the sesson and the
courts In tha university gymnasium are
crowded. A tournament haa been ar
ranged for tha post-Christmas days. Bat
ket ball la fast coming to the front aa a
university sport. At Wisconsin fully
thirty men had been trying for the team
and the prospect for a successful and vic
torious aeason ia good. The first game,
that against Sheboygan on Thanksgiving
day, waa easily won, and the team haa Im
proved greatly since that time.
Tha Impulse toward winter sporta has
been felt by the women at much at the

Masrnatee, . , .
Walt a little.
Next week will witness the most mo
mentous conference of modern times, When
the committees of the two big leagues
get together and light the peace pipe.
Several little matters will have to be more
accurately adjusted than they are before
the fragrant odor ot the kllllklnlck will
ascend over the council, but these may be
attended to with little friction. One of
these concerns the status of the several
players who jumped from the one league
to the other. It has been proposd that
each league retain Its own players, that Is,
the players It haa under contract at the
present time. Thla is agreeable to all the
magnate but Colonel John I. Rogers, who
teems to be Implacable. He has about re
signed blmse,lf to the lots of Lajole, Bern
hardt and Frater, but cornea merrily for
ward .with a claim for big Ed Delehanty,
and declines to be a party to any agreement
which does not give him the services of the
big sens tor. And, furthermore, Mr. Rog
ers says that Philadelphia needs "competi
tion" Thia latter proposition may be the
correct one, but Philadelphia people las'
summer seemed to think that John I. Rog
ers waa not the man to furnish the Com
petition. At any rata the attendance at the
parka on daya when both teams were at
home didn't Indicate it. Then,, too, Al
Reach dlda't endorse the courae of his
partner in base ball by a good deal. When
Rogera let Lajole, Fraser aad Bernhardt
get away from Philadelphia after 'winning
a lawsuit,- just because ha wouldn't' pay
tha money for, them,. he not only. ruined
Phlladelphla'a chances, but ha made Cleve
land. ' Connie Mack waa ctlrinlng enough
to secure Rube Waddell for. the Athletics,'
and tha deed waa did. Some base bail men
are inclined to think that the chatter of
Colonel Rogera just at present arises from
tha fact that ha haa aold out, or la willing
to aell out. It he Isn't ready to quit the
game, he la talking" like a sausage, for the
peace movement haa aet In tor good this
time. - '
Aa a matter of faot the American league
hat whipped the National at every turn in
the road, and la in a better position before
the public today than It ever' was. Ban
Johnson ia aure of hla entry to New York,
whether he can secure a park from, the
National or not. In all the other invaded
towna the American la firmly intrenched
and In Boston and Philadelphia at least
It commands. At Chicago tha break Is
about even. That It will prove popular In
New York is generally admitted. So tbe
rest of it ia merely a matter of detail. All
thia Is well understood by the men who
are to carry on the peace negotlatlona and
will be given due weight by thera In their
deliberations. It has been suggested by a
base ball man who knows tha altaatlon
very thoroughly that a good basis for set
tlement will be found in a division of ter
ritory that contemplates, tha withdrawal
of the competing teama from St. Louis and
Boston and the addition of Louisville and
Baltimore to tha circuits. Ha would make
up tha National circuit out of New York,
Brooklyn, Philadelphia and Baltime In the
oast, Chloago, Pittsburg, Cincinnati and
St. Loula In the weat and tha American
league to hava Boaton, New York, Phila
delphia and Washington la tha east, with
Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland and Louisville
lb tha west. This glvea two good circuits,
with competing clubt in only three tawna,
and those three plenty big enough to sup
port two good clubs each. Agreement as
to datea would make tha' support certain
and the game would be put on a solid basta
ao far aa tha big leagues are concerned.
Neither aide would lose' by relinquishing
tha positions in Boston and St. Louis, at
suggested, and both would gain by tha ad

Among the minors tbife is nothing doing.
It teems a clmh tbat the Western league
will go through next summer with tbe tame
old circuit, and the Hlckey league Isn't
likely to see any change, either, all the
talk of moving the 8t. Paul franchise to
Chicago to the contrary notwithstanding.
Of course, the outcome In St. Paul depends
on the temper of Mr. Oeorge A. Lennon.
It he wants to keep the team In the Min
nesota capital city, he can do so. Peoria
has secured new grounds, Mgtt In tha heart
of the village, where everybody can get In
and out without loss of time. Better than
that, the new park la located several feet
above the surrounding country, snd thus
Is easy to drain. Players who waded
around In the quagmires and morasses ot
the park In the IIUdoIs river bottoms last
summer will surely appreciate tbe change.
Down at St. Joseph the fans are beginning
to lose flesh over , the thought tbat they
won't win the pennant next teaeon. As If
anyone ever thought the Train Robbers
could win a pennant. Out at; Denver tha
cause tor rejoicing la real, and as soon as
the weather lets up a little the faithful
propose to have some tort of celebration.
It is all because during the week the
Joytfus announcement was made that Parke
Wilson had Jumped his contract and signed
with Seattle for tho summer of 1903. Juat

At a meeting of about forty manufac

to show that right-handedness is due to a

An Interesting experiment In night artil
lery work was mad In Germany recently.
A searchlight waa placed at a distance 'in
known to the officers in command of a field
battery, and after It waa turned on the
guns were brought into action against it.
Six 4.7-liich guns were used, the range was
obtained very - rapidly, and within five
minutes the light was broken to pieces. An
other searchlight, at a range of about 1.200
yards, was broken after a few rounds had
been fired.. , -.
There has been within two years an
enormous Increase in the bonda of corpora

slight. The New York Slock exchange
listed In iSWl J9a,0l0,100 worth of bonds, or
double the amount of the previous year.
Corporations wanting money now Issue
bond Instead, of Issuing additional stock.
An advantage of thla plan and probably
the one which leads to Its adoption, is that
the bondholder has no voice in the manage

time an incoming steamship will report
that while atill twenty miles off shore on
New - Tear's day, lit passengers could
smell tha rich odor Of whisky, hot and
cold, wafted from celebrating New Tork.
New Yorkers who are good through tha
ordinary St3 daya of the year, appear In
public In the afternoon and evening ot
December tl with bottles In their arma
and the contents ot other bottles hidden
in their bosoms.
The bottle It the New Tear'a emblem of
the big town. Unhallowed It the name ot
the liquor dealer who falls to give a
Dottle of Whisky, rum, brandy, sherry or
port to each regular customer on the 31st
day of ' December. And It must be a
quart bottle, too. The Unwritten law Is
that the stuff Inside may be" a gift horse
that burns tha mouth, but there must be
a quart of It.
One prominent liquor dealef down town
gave away $10,000 worth of liquor last
year. His best customers got a quart bot
tle of brandy that ' cost 60 cents a drink
over the bar. Froth royal New Year's lar
gesse like that, the gifts go through
varioua grades until they attain the level
of the brown bottle of Mulberry atreet,
wherein there lurks a whisky that would
eat a noticeable hole in a Sioux chief.
Business men appreciate the fact that
the fervid desire to get bottles of sotne
thlng for nothing will seise even the most
sober employe on tha last day of the year,
therefore December 11 In New York has be
come a day ot mingled revelry and work,
with the work decidedly thinned out in
Ilantlngr the Bottle rreseat.
Even the most solemn and staid old per-
tons are telxad With the spirit that makes
them visit tha nearest barroom to see If
they cannot get a bottle. They find other
solemn and staid old persons there on tho
tame errand. Each would rather die than
to confess to the other that he haa come
In the hope of deluding the owner of the
place Into the belief that he Is a rteady
customer deserving of a preaent.
So they He to each other stoutly, and
at last even go to the desperate length of
buying each other drinks. While they are
doing It their souls are torn by the sight
of bottles being handed out. Recklessly
they buy more drinks In ' the hope that
the owner will catch their eye and give
Every bottle-present hunter lmagtnea

back to work. But he won't. If he geta
ona he will hurry to the next barroom to
get another. If he doesn't get one he will
hurry to tha- aet barroom in the hope of
better luck. . ..
Tha natural excitement of getting some,
thing for nothing, added to the equally
natural- excitement of taking at least ona
drink In each place, makes the New
Yorker In tha mate a genial and discursive
person by the afternoon of "December 31.
His approach la heralded by a rich alco
holic fragrance, and a halo of whisky and
augar surrounds him.

compressed carfuls. Every time the door
opens at a station tha mighty Icent of

It is an old New Yofk fashion that New
York haa not outgrown.- It outgrows many,
but it doea not cast them oft entirely.
Alwaya somewhere in the herd of. com
munities that make New York, there are
some that can wear the fashlona that hava
become too small for the city aa a whole.
Callta on the "Table Setters."
New York, at a whole, ' haa outgrown
the good old fashion of the ancient daya
of ten . years ago, when everybody called
on everybody else, quite without tbe mere
detail of knowing anybody personally. But

themselves behind the table. Tbey have
not long to wait. Many of their callers
aro accustomed to rise early. Many others
do not happen to have been asleep at all
and And it not, only easy but delightful to
be on the spot.
The first callers are received formally.
The men enter in aingle file, pushing be
fore them tbe boldest, who hides hla con
fusion by being preternaturally Impudent
and witty. When the single file has at
last shoved Its entire ainuous length into
the room the men edge toward the walls
and furniture as men fearing the approach
of deadly enemlea from behind. Each holds
hla hat so aa to guard himself atill more
in tbat direction. .
The women bow majestically and for an
odious while nobody says anything till a
brave spirit begs leave to Introduce "my
friend." Then everybody introduces every
body else as "my friend." All tbe frtenda
are requested to have a little something;
possibly a few friends sometimes decline.
But careful examination of the callers at
night doea not disclose a condition that

Thnt time existed nlwav. without a bojrinnliiir nrins Impossible tliouifh no

hour wnsted In this klud of theorizing thought la thnt murh time wasted with
out bt-neflt or result A man can spend hla whole life alone; such lines, only to
find how Iguornnt he waa of his own Ignorance. The proper thing la to "take
time by the forelock" and "make hny while the sun shines." It la as unfair to
condemn all speclnllsta because there are frauds, as to condemn all churchea
Idealise there are hypocrites. Separate tho wheat from the ohnff and act aeu
slbly. - Hidebound Ideas are slaves of opinion, and a man waa never converted
from wrong idens who did not look back and wonder how he could have been
so honestly wrong.
rrecvndent Is not alwaya a correct guide. It mny be unlawful to drive rap
idly through a main thoroughfnre, but If a team la runnulng away '.aw wou't
regulate. Poor health renders the enjoyment of life impossible and destroya
the attractiveness of an otherwise good disposition, but It Is more difficult to
get tho poison of prejudice out of the system thnn to mre disease.
Kor a number of yeara I fought doctors who ndvertlse with all the venom
of an Inherent prejudice, and know ,thnt tny rplnlons and contempt were hon

convinced against hla prejudices. A well lighted bed room Is more comfort to
a child thnn the strongest assurances when left In a dark room. Over 25 yeara

Ethles ot Xev Year's Kisses.
Each friend, as he raises hit glass, says
hastily, "Happy New Year," and then peers
around, blushing lest he find It fame.
"Same to you," say the ladiea, and the file
prepares to sidle out. Aa they emerge
their giggle chime with the giggle of the
women. Later In the day, tbe friends be
gin, to bestow more eloquence on their
hostesses and soft scuffles are frequent,
as each friend attempts to exploit hit
prerogative of kissing them. The women
submit with toft patience. But if a man
should dream that their kindness Is an
Invitation to take liberties, he will find
himself undeceived quickly and Impress
ively. The girls draw the line just aa
sharply as It is drawn in Fifth avenue,
The difference Is only a difference In man
ner, not morals.
Often the friends combine their means
to hire a cab for the purpose of making
calls in style. The hostesses like it, for
the setters of tables keep minute and
jealous count of the number of carriage
callers that they and their rivals In the
street receive on New Year's day.
The cab hired for tha . occasion has a
capacity limited only by the number of
those .who can get Iq and on It. Often
the cabman is a friend himself and helps to
make the calls. - This makes tbe course ot
the vehicle pleasantly erratic toward the
end of the day . and occasionally It la left
to shift tor itself after the various friends
bave become oblivious. . .
. The real genuine caller expects to make
at least 100 calls and do his duty at each,
and still manage to find his way home
at night without the help of the police.
He performs hla calls as a sacred obliga
tion long after they have ceased to becomo
a keen pleasure. He Is Impelled by two
Influences. One Is that bis lady friends
expect him to call, tor a girl's social
standing is measured by the number cf
their callers, and the other reason Is that
the men keep count ot the number of calla
that they make Just as they would keep
track of any, other sporting event.
Tho caller of the far weet and east
sides haa a mighty stomach and a steady
band. The' most drunken objects to be
seen on New Year's duy In thla territory
are the very young persons who transpar
ently pretend to be much more drunk than
they are, in order to impress the ladies
with their noble wickedness..
