having pounded this position unmercifully
and until Its fife had slackened visibly,
the Japanese delivered their assault. They
met with a stubborn resistance. They were
exposed to the fire of machine guns and
rifles, and they made frantic effort to
reach (he creel of the slope. They leaped
over trenches and embankments nnd tore
down the entanglements In their path un
til at length they entered the fort. The
Russian troops there refused to desert their
position even In. the face of superior num

CHANGEIN RIFLE ASSOCIATION
Individual Memberships Art to Es Barred
WILL BECOME A LEAGUE OF CLUBS
Plan Proposed Which Is Likely to
Have Important Bearing; on Fa
tare Shooting; Practice and
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Sept. - 25 8peclal.) In
the opinion of military experts the action
recently taken by the National Rifle asso
ciation of America at Its annual meeting
at Hen Girt. N. J., looking toward the
abolishment of annual membership in the
association and confining the membership
to clubs or other organisations, will have
a most important bearing upon the fu
ture of rifle practice in this country.
Heretofore the National Rifle association
has been composed of life members, an
nual members and affiliated clubs. It Is
now proposed to make It strictly a central
or governing body for the shooting clubs
of the country, both civilian and mHltary,
and to confine Its membership to repre
sentatives of these organisations rather
than to Individuals. The association rec
ommended to the board of directors that
suitable, action should be taken to effect
this change and there Is no doubt the rec
ommendation will be adopted. In treat
ing on this subject In his annual rejiort,
Lieutenant Albert S. Jones, the secretary
of the association, pointed out that al
though only five years have elapsed since
tho reorganisation of the National Rifle as
sociation there arc affiliated with It fifty
active shooting organizations representing
nearly every section of the country and
every class of shooting. Within the last
year eighteen organisations, eleven of them
military, Ave civilian and two state or
ganizations, affiliated with the National as
sociation. Combine Two Meets.
Another action by the association cannot
fall to receive favorable comment from
all those Interested in rifle shooting, and
that was the adoption of a resolution sug
gesting to the board of directors the ad
visability of holding the national meet
ing of tht association at the same time
and place with the contest for the national
trophy. It was never Intended that the
contest for the national trophy should be
separated from the National Rifle associa
tion, and the act of congress creating the
trophy provided that It should be shot for
under rules r.nd regulations of the national
board, which is largely made up of trus
tees of the National Rifle association. This
year, however, the national match got side
tracked lnlo a strictly army competition,
contrary to the wishes of the national
board, which brought the national trophy'
Inio existence. By uniting these two con
tests the number of prizes will be greatly
Increased, as will the attendance, for It
la Impossible for many of the expert marks
men to take four or six weeks away from
their business in the fall of the yer te
devote to these contests, as would be neo
esaary were they held separately.
The announcement was made at the an
nual meeting of several additional prizes
which will be offered next year for long
distance shooting as well as In the revolver
In his annual report, Lieutenant Jones
suggested that ail affiliated military or
ganizations hold a competition for the
National Rifle association medal previous
to the fall meeting, at the organizations'
expense, the winner as the official repre
sentative of that organization fn the presi
dent's match for the individual" military
championship of the United States. Many
foreign countries have a plan similar to
this, the; difference being that the prelimi
nary shoots are held by countries or can
tonments. Such an arrangement would
stimulate a great deal of friendly rivalry
with the organizations for the honor of
being sent to the big shoots.
Children Learn About Microbes.
The prevalence of typhoid fever In the
District of Columbia has resulted In the
Boird of Commissioners directing prin
cipals of all the schools In Washington to
have the water used for drinking purposes
boiled. As a result of this order the-e have
been any , number of funny incidents at
tending upon the use of boiled water. In the
schools. A smali boy at the Polk building
caused consternation among his playmates
on the opening day of school by pulling
from his Inside pocket a white glass half
pint flask, containing what appeared from
Its color to be whisky, and when the
teacher was not looking took a big swig of
"Aw, I'm goln' to tell the teacher on ye,"
shouted a frowsy-topped urchin; ' "yer
drlnkln' red llcker, yer Is."
"Na, this ain't llcker," retorted he of
the flnsk, "It's cold tea. Me mother la
'frald I'll get germs In me If I drink b'lled
water, an' she fixed thlar here tea fer me,
Some of the children have queer concep
tions of the reasons for boiling water. One
of the scholars at an uptown school, a
little girl of about 10 years, said:
'The river water la full of ml-cro-hees
that flowed Into It from a town In Mary
land where they've gJt typhoid fever.
These ml-cr-bees are active animals and
swim about In the water. If they get Intra
your body thry enter your blood and cause
disease. By putting the wster on the Are
you boll the little anlrrmls to death, just as
I have seen pa boll rraba."
A smsll boy gave this as his version of
"The heat kills all animal life In the
water, especially tha germs that carry
typhoid fever along with them."
A colored scholar explained that the
Potomac water was rooked "to make d
mud sink ter da bottom, sa aa de efar
water esn be drawn off for drinking " Btltl
another evrlorej lad tried to explain thai
microbes were eels In sa embryonic etjte.

SHERWOOD WIXS FROM CHRISTIE
Local Man Pals Ip Fine Game
Against St. Lonla track.
A Christie, professional golfer at the
Omaha Field club, was defeated In his
match with W. C. Sherwood professional
nt the Country club at St. Louis, In one
of the most exciting golf contests that
has ever taken place on the Field club
links, the scores being all even nt the end
of the first eighteen holes nnd 2 up and
1 to play In favor of Sherwood nt the
thlrty-siTih hole. The game was for a
bet of 2X a side.
The game was opened bv Sherwood at
10 a. m. under the most adverse climatic
conditions on account of the heavy mist
whlc. prevailed nnd which made tho land
scape one whltey blur, a fact which greatv
handicapped the plnyera. From the outset
Christies remarknhle work on the long
green drew applause ag.aln and again from
a large number of speVtntors who were
present to witness the match In spite of
the unpleasant weather. But Sherwood did
better than Christie on the putting gr.vn.
Going out Sherwood was I up on Christie
at the ninth hole, the scores by medal
play being Sherwood 41, Christie 41. But
once at work on the Inside nine, Christie
was a mighty different being. At tie
fifteenth hole he was 3 dhwn to Sherwood,
but by the finest exhibition of golf thnt
Omaha has seen, mnnnred to make It all
even with Sherwood at the eighteenth hole.
He took the last three holes in succession.
The scores by medal piny for the lnsld
nine holes were Christie 35. Sherwood 87.
The hoijey for this course Is forty-one.
A larger crowd than ever attended for
the afternoon's play and this was hut a
repetition of the morning's play, excepting
that Christie did not do as well as In
the first elphteen holes. On the long green
he was perfect, but lost around on the
putting green. As In the first nine holes.
Sherwood did tho outside nine In 41 and
Christie In 44 Rr match play Sherwood
was 3 up on Christie.
Coming In Christie broke the club record,
rtoinp the course In 8"i: Sherwood did It In
3rl. The total scores for the thlrtv-slx
holes, reckonlna bv medal play, was Sher
wood 165 and Christie 16. By match piny
Sherwood won, 3 up and 1 to play, on
Though Christie waa defeated, public
opinion gave him the credit of having nut
un a better gnme than did Sherwood. On
of the local man's weaknesses seemed to
lie In the lnrge crowd, for like mnnv other
golfers, he it npt to get rattled In his stroke
If someone behind him moves or talks.
BRIGHT PROSPECTS AT CRETE
Foot Dnll Squad la Showing Up Well
CRETE, Neb., Sept. 25. (Special. )-The
prospects for a winning foot hail team
were never brighter at Doane. Eight mem
bers of last year'a team, four second team
men, who were good enough to get Into

very promising new men form a squad
out of which Coach Fuhrer expects to de

"Ds are at present playing In the fol
lowing positions: Specs, center; Grsyblel,
right guard; Hall, right end; Fuhrer, right
half; Day, left tackle; Tldball, left end;
Brownell, left half. Dowse, a last year's
acruh, will no doubt make good at left
guard, while Wlldhaher, a last year's sub
stitute for that position, Is playing right
tackle. Johnson, a new man, is making a
good showing at fullback, while Wendland
of last year's team and Bates of the scrubs
are working hard for the quarterback posi
tion. Spencer, who played several games
on the 'varsity Isst year, has been out
for practice but one night, but with faith
ful work will make the team. J. Brown
ell, Dickinson, Euhanks and Taylor are
new men who are making nerca tne com
petition for places on the 'vsrslty.
The team will be very little heavier than
that of last year, but Is expected to sur
pass It In speed. The opening game of
the season will be played on the home
grounds with the Coiner team, next Sat-
