Foot ball has had many a hard knock
during the last season, but from all Indica
tions bids fair to continue to be the king of
nil amateur sports. Many Improvements
In the rules have been suggested and the
probabilities are that decided changes will
be made before the next season rolls around.
Walter Camp, the head advisor of the Yale
team and dean of foot ball, has mads the
announcement that the ten-yard rule will
be adopted by the enstern colleges. He Is
probably In a position to know. This rule
will probably work more to the advantage
of the open game In foot ball than any
which has yet been suggested. The game
has been growing more oicn from year to
year. In 1S92 the players were wont to bo
Injured by the flying wedge. This was
played In different complex formations at
the opening of play. The defensive side
would line up In the middle of the field, and
the side which had won the toss would
start ten or fifteen yards back In the form
of a V and charge at full speed. When the
crash came the man with the ball would
be thrown forward as far as possible. A.
W. Jefferis of this city received a severe
Injury In stopping this rush while playing
on the Michigan team. Albion was the op
ponent and as the players charged down the
Held It was Jefferis' business to throw him
self under the mass to stop It. He was
kicked In the spine and was unable to so
much as smile for several weeks. Harvard
worked this system to perfection and mado
many formations of the flying wedge so
that for two or three years the team was
ns victorious as was Pennsylvania when
that team Introduced the guards back in
terference, a game which was very success
ful until the opposing teams learned a de
fense which would stop it.
After the flying wedge was done away
with new rules were Introduced which kept
nIx and scen men on the front line of of
fense, so that these heavy formations wero
done away with. This rule was circum
vented by the captains calling back the
heavy men to make the plunges Into the
line and it is still the better team whl.-h
can get the heaviest men to make line
plunges. The new rule Is Intended to mitke
a more open play and to do this faster men
will be required and so many heavy men
will not be needed on a team. There Is ni
foolishness about the game of foot bull as
it has been played. It is a case of win,
win fair If possible, but win. list season
public Indignation was worked up over the
rame of foot ball and the makers of the
rules changed a word here nnd a phrase
there and the general public was told thnt
there was to be a great improvement, but
the Improvement was not there except In
canes of teams which wished to play the
ocn game In spite of the leniency of the
rules. Chicago was a notable example of
the exponents of the open game, and al
though Btagg had the players to resist the
plunges of the heavy Michigan team, they
were also schooled In the open game. The
deaths from foot ball this year were nine
teen In number, about the samo as last
year, and Is not so large when It Is con
nidered that over 100,000 players annually in
dulge In the pnstlme. The fatality end of
the game Is not considered so bad as the
brutality and the cheating by ringing in of
professional rlayers to make a team which
can win. President Eliot of Harvard did
not come out as strong as some, as be
thinks well of the game as a whole, but be
lieves the rules should bo modi Hod.
California universities have announced
their Intention of making their own rules
for the government of the game and break
ing away from the rules which are fixed by
the general rules committee, composed of
1 -epmu-ntatlves of all of the principal east
ern schools, with representation from the
Hlg Nine. This Is to bo regretted, for this
Ik hut one country and the laws of a great
umateur game should be the same In all
sections. Otherwise an Interchange of
sanies Is impossible. The rules committee
will undoubtedly do the right thing in the
matter and some radical changes may be
expected. Many say that they can see noth
ing to the game when it Is merely a scries
of line plunges between two giant elevens,
but rules will surely be made which will
make the game open, giving a better cTiance
to the spectators and to the players to
show their Individual merit. In the old
kicking gamo Snake Ames was a name
long talked about, and this player gained
his fame simply because he understood a
few tricks which old players understand
oncoming the open game. Ames would
stop 'way back, ostensibly to punt and
when the opposing players would charge at
full tilt, It was a simple matter to dodge
and side-step these churging players nnd
that left him few to dodge on his run down
the field. The 0-cent ruin adopted by the
Hlg Nine conferencn will have a great in

fluence In the money rcatters of a foot boll
team and will have a tendency to make the
game less professional la appearance. Leae
expensive training tables will be main
tained aed many other advantages cf the
game will be done away with because cf
the lack of funds. The object, of course,
was to give the Mg t'nm le.s money which
might possibly be. used injudiciously in se

A league of "socker foot ball teams was
organised last May, consisting of Columbia,
Harvard and Havtrford as charter mem
bers. It Is now understood that both Cor
nell and Princeton, together with Pennsyl
vania, have applied for admission Into the
In'e.c lle-,late Assort ition To t Fall league.
Association foot ball has been growing at
Trinceton Into great favor among the un
dergraduates and a squad of thirty players
have been practicing dally. Some had hoped
that this sorkcr game would supplant the
American game in the colleges, but If it
docs It will be because the rules committee
fails to recognize the cry fur reform and
this does not seem likely to occur. The
ten-yard rule has been working well during
the last year In Canada. Another rule sug
gested Is that no tackling be permitted be
low the belt. Another change suggested
Is that four officials handle the game in
stead of two, it being argued that four
men would be much more art to sea any
violations of the rules. An Important
change suggested by a western college is
that the officials of the game be appointed
by the league Instead of being chosen by
the opposing teams. Borne maintain that
slight changes will not save the game,
that all rules should be thrown aside and
an entirely new set adopted. Another rule
which might have a tendency to make a
player think twice before ho became too
rough Is that his team shall lose two
points, or rather that tho opponents shall
count two points if ha Is disqualified from
the iinic
So hot has become the chase after honors
on the bowling alleys of Omaha that the
city U rapidly gaining a reputation outside
as the home of some of the best amateurs
I In tho west. This Is proved by the fact
that tho champion Uuntners of Chicago are
to be In Omaha fur match games on Lecem
ber 31 and January 1. Not only are young
men interesied, but many middle-aged and
elderly men are also finding pleasurable
recreation on the alleys; and women, too,
are getting Into tho bowling habit in such
numbers that special prizes for their bene
fit have been a feature of several of tho
alleys for a good while. Advocates of
bowling us a form of sport, no less than
as a sensible kind of exercise, grow en
thusiastic in praise of tho game. They
recall that it has developed through many
generations, gaining always in attractive
ness and yet not catering to the patronage
of any rough or undesirable element of the
population. It Is beyond question that as
a game which gives chance for valuable
yet not exhausting physical exercise, bowl
ing Is steadily gaining in favor. It is not
uncommon to see .men lulling- the bails
single-handed with as much vim as if
money were to bo won or lost by their
scores. As a rule, these men are ironi
otlices or business houses where they are
busy all day In sedentary occupations. They
Hud relaxation und pleasure in an hour s
work with the finger balls. On any of the
prominent alleys of tho city may be seen
late in tho afternoon small groups of men
who are as regular in their practice with
the balls and pins as the gymnasium track
man or the boxing or billiard enthusiast.
At the Field club during tho summer the
bowling alley was a favorite place for many
of the women, und for tho daughters of
members who are still attending school.
In this game all could Join with vim, taking
their turn on the alleys and afterward
resting while some companion tried her
In Omaha, a In other cities, more money
is being invested in bowling alleys every
year. Some of these are quite costly as
well as handsome In their appointments,
and every new Improvement is added as
fast as it has proved its merit. Only tho
best to be had is good enough now, and
a first class spread of alleys, gutters and
runways is a dazzling sight, especially
when a number of games are in progress
at once. Tho woodwork is polished to a
dazzling degree und with myriad lights
shining and lighting up every cranny in
tho hall, with bulls thundering down the
glistening boards, pins falling and crashing
together, rlayers exulting or explaining
their poor shots, merriment abounding and
everybody enjoying tho sport, a modern
bowling alley is one of tho pleasajitett
nights to bo witnessed in the whole realm
of sport. With several leagues operating
in Omaha, the interest is ou the increase
and the participants take almost as much
Interest in team and Individual scores and
standing as do the base ball fans. In the
local leagues are bowleis capable of making
up a team umply proficient to compete
with the best In the land.
Omaha women have a gymnasium of thcii
own us well as the men, and they put It to
good use. Tho Young Women's Christian
association is fortunate in having the serv
ices of Miss lleth Wallace as physical di
rector, a young woman with plenty of ex
perience which sho secured at the Cniver
city of Nebraska and na Instructor ut IViune
and Wesleyan. Since her coming the en
rollment In the regular gymnasium class
has Increased until at the piesent time it
numbers 1'3 young women. These .are all
enthusiastic in their work under their ex
eellent leader and great benefits are already
apparent In the carrlago of the girls who
are taking this exercise. Mies Wallace was
seen just before time for a claas and was
more than enthusiastic over her work. Sho
said: "Our classes are gradually building
up, although In a large city like this the
older girls are a little backward about con
tinuing their work in the gymnasium under
a new Instructor. For this reason nearly
all of our girls are new at the work. We
expect to have a basket bull team and here
again the enforced inllux of so much new
material will keep us butkward in the mat
ter of games. Nearly all of the girls who
will play on the team will be new at tho
game and for thut reason we are a little
timid about arranging a hard schedule
Then, again, basket bull is so fascinating it
Interferes with the regular classes, and for
that reason 1 have been a little slow In
starting It this fall. After the holidays we
hull start the game to going with more
vim than at present and will soon be able to
arrange games with any comers. Wo will
probably play Hellevue, but the State uni
versity has no scnedule ariantied up to dale
and we don't know whether we will play
that team or not. Our quarters are neces
sarily crowded here, but when we are in
the new building we will then have the
shower baths and locker rooms and every
thing handy, and then the cU.-av will ail
be larger and mere Interest fahcn by a
larger number of the girls. We had planned
to give some gymnastic exercises for the
New Year's reception, but the piogram has
not been made out, so we do not know what
we will do. Our new gymnasium will be
perfectly equipped and will be as fine as
any gymnasium for girls In the west."

Tri gcinrff matters of Interest to start

association nt Pelmonko's on January 13
and the international tournament at the
Mexico Country club, which begins on the
same day and lasts for two weeks. The
heights di fended by Santa Ana and stormed
by General Taylor are grif bunkers now.
and the tournament Is apt to be a notable
success. The affair had Its start last year,
when Will Smith won the Mexicon cham
pionship, nnd he hag stayed there ever since
to teach golf. As a matter of fact, the Eng
llsh and American colonies In the city of
Mexico support the game, for save a few
enfranchised natives, the Mexicans prefer
bull fights and cock fights to placid golf.

Is to attend the tournament, also Aleck
Smith, Steward Gardner, Bernard Nlcholla
and probably George Low. Walter J. Travis
has not as yet won a cup In Mexico, and
he will hardly resist the temptation to play,
while George B. Adams, John Moller, Jr.,
C. L. Tappin and Arden M. Robbins In
fact, nearly all the golfers who annually
pack their grips for winter trips, are likely
to Include Mexico in their Itinerary. The
first contest will be for the open cham

with to the winner and J100 to the sec
ond. There will be a team match for ama
teurs, four-ball competition open to pairs,
professional and amateur, and the amateur
championship of Mexico, which will begin
with a thlrty-slx-hole medal play round.
Tho entries close on January IB.
Since the gift of a trophy to the Inter
collegiate Golf association, the Vnlted
States Golf association committee has been
urged to give similar trophies to the New
England Golf association and the embryo
Western Intercollegiate. The Intercollegiate
has the honor of seniority, and with a little
enterprise It might widen Its scope to make
the tournament of really national conse
quence. Tho college hoys should take In
the New England league, at least, say many
graduates, for with the teams from Brown,
Williams, Amherst, Massachusetts Tech
nology and others ns rivals, the interest in
the annnual team championship would not
rest In merely whether Harvard or Tale Is
to win. Princeton, Pennsylvania, Columbia
and Cornell should hold out the hand of
welcome to tho New England colleges, If
only for the selfish reason to get opponents
they could beat.
Will Anderson, four times open champion
of the I'nlted States, has accepted an offer
from tho Onwentsia club near Chicago. The
champion will receive the highest salary
yet paid to a professional In this country.
Anderson, who has been connected with the
Ampawamls Oolf club of Rye, N. V., for
the last two years, will succeed Fred Mc
Kenzie at Onwentsia, the latter having
decided to return to Scotland. Anderson
first came to this country when a boy of
1fi. his first green being at Watch Hill,
R. I. It was in the open championship cf
1X97 at Wheaton that Anderson Fpran
Into prominenco by finishing second a
stroke behind Joe Lloyd. The following
year at Baltimore Anderson finished third,
and fifth in W at Myopia after a tie
with Alex Smith, finished fifth the next
year at Garden city, ana then won in
succession at Baltusrol, Glenvlew and My
opia. Ho has also won the western open
tltlo twice in 2P9 at Cleveland three years
ago, going on record as one or tne most
remarkable performances ever recorded by
an op?n champion in either this country
or Great Britain. Anderson was born lit
Edinburgh, Scotland, and did most of his
playing when a boy at North Berwick,
where his father was green keeper for
eighteen years.
rrof. John L. Tipton of Simpson college
at Indianola, la., suggested at a meeting
of representatives of eleven colleges of
the northwest recently that basket ball
replace foot ball and tho game be played
outdoors. The general opinion of the
educators was that foot ball must bo
changed radically or abolished, though few
believe abolition will be possible.
In speaking of tho foot ball situation
President Langdon C. Stewardson of no
bait college, Geneva, N. Y.f says he be
lieves the large institutions should take
the lead, as the smaller colleges are com
pelled by force of circumstances to play
as the authorities decldu or abolish the
game. 1 To abolish the game at the present
time, he thinks, would be both inadvisable
and premature. He recommends the aboli
tion of the professional coach and pleads
for a new heart, the heart of a true
Ducky Holmes is getting along very well
with his tiasn ball proposition down at
Lincoln. He has leased the park regard
less of any arrangement with the Univer
sity of Nebraska, and Is going ahead to
get his team together. Papa Bill Rourke
will help him out to the extent of giving
him Jack Thomas and Frank Martin, Tills
will make a splendid Infield for Lincoln,
for with Thomas on first, Martin at sec
ond, Ciulllin, of last season's St. Joe team,
at short, and Holmes at third, the corners
will be taken care of by ubout as fatit a
bunch us the Western haa ever had.
Itourkc tried very hard to make a trade
for Qulllin. but Holmes knows a good
thing himself, and declined to let go. If
Holmes can get us good an outfield as that,
he will surely have Uncolu in the race.
The big magnates have done at least
one good thing, and that Is the concession
to the minors on the drafting proposition.
It has been determined that only one man
may be drafted, and that the price to be
paid shall be O.OOo. This means that more
care will be exercised in making selections,
and that the riddling of minor league teams
each fall will be at an end. The present
draft system has worked an Injustice to
player and owner alike. Take the present
condition of the New York American team,
for example. When Griffith starts south for
his training next spring, he will take with
him seventeen pitchers, six catchers, nine
inflelders and six outfielders. If each of
tho big league teams had put together
a string like that, where would tho little
fellows be?
The change is a victory for the Class A
teams, who made the fight last spring.
All the lion Johnson batteries were turned
on them, and Griffith, StaJlings, Tebeau
and others who mode the fight were called
all marner of names, but they refused to
lay down. Now that victory has been
achieved, watch Kavanaugh and Powers
and one or two others who went over
to the big fellows and fought their own
interests come slipping around for their
share of the glory and the advantage
that has come to minor league bail.
Papa BUI Rourke is sitting around his
new headquarters these days, quietly
i smiling In anticipation of next summer's
work. He plans to show some of the wise
ones a new trick. Among the things he
has up his sleeve is the new third base
man. It a a hard thing to get one to take
Bill Schipke'a place, but Rourke says he
has him. "He's another Rill Rradley. I
tell you." and Rouil.e gazed fondly on the
( face of the youngster, as it shone forth
j from a photograph. "Just wait till that
boy gets Into action." Eddie Quick, who
was sitting around with the boss, spoke
of Pill Schipke. and Rourke paid him this
tribute: "In the two seasons he played
with the Omaha team I never saw Bchlpke

shirk a ball, and I never saw him moke
but one error of Judgment. One day on
the home grounds, during his first season,
he made a dive for the bag instead of for
the ball, and it wert for a hit. Bill saw
his blunder too late to retrieve It, and he
looked as foolish as any ball player I ever
saw on the diamond. If he gets off right
with Cleveland he'll make the patrons alt
up and take notice."

smooth, and one sees the work of the gla
cier overywhere. Indeed, bedrock is close
to the surface.
Some of the miners tell me that this part
of the world Is the oldest formation known
and that rocks which are found far down in
other parts of the continent here lie at the
surface. One well known man who Is some
thing of an authority on the minerals of
this part of the world believes that this Is
why the cobalt and nickel He at the sur
face. The nickel ho supposes to be the core
of the world, saying that if one could get at
the heart of old mother earth be would find
that it is mado of nickel steel.
Kuoriuons Mineral Deposits.
I doubt whether the southern part of New
Ontario will ever bo worth much for farm
ing, although the land between the rocks is
said to be rich. Tho whole country, how
ever, is filled with minerals. This is espe
cially so about Iake Superior and Georgian
bay, und above these no one knows how far
northward. I have met a number of ex
plorers who have crossed the country from
here to Hudson's bay. They say there are
evidences of gold, silver, copper and iron
all along the way. There are Immense beds
nt gypsum near James bay and also signs
of petroleum and gas.
These explorers, however, have only gone
along the streams over two or three known
trails, so that the region is unknown and
unprospected. The Canadian geological sur
vey bus made hoi no explorations and re
ported thereon, but no one has any Idea
what the country really contains. So far
two of the best mineral regions have been
discovered through railroad cuts. The new
cobalt silver mines, which may possibly
yield JoO.000,000 or mora within tho next few
years, were discovered by the Temiskamlng
railroad builders In excavating the roadbed
about Cobalt lake, and the nickel mines
here, which are now supplying more than
half the nickel of the world, were stumbled
upon by tho Canadian Pacific railway while
grading its trdxks twenty-five years ago.
Prospecting; In Canada.
Prospecting heru is not like the business
as carried on in the Rocky mountains.
There one can go around toting his pick on
horseback or donkeyback and chip the rocks
with his hammer. Here the country is
wooded, and there is so much muskeg that
It is impossible to make one's way through,
except upon fool. The prospector carries
his blanket, provisions and tools on bis
back, holding them there by a wide strap
about his forehead. He has often to un
cover the soil; and, in the cobalt region,
make trenches here und there, stripping the
earth from each likely spot to see if the rich
silver veins will not show out In the rock.
One indication of cobalt silver Is known as
cobalt bloom. This is a beautiful pink,
which the cobalt in the rock takes on when
exposed to the weather. Where there Is
much of it it looks for all the world Just
like the rogue which our society belles put
on their cheeks in a vain attempt to imi
tate nature.
in prospecting for nickel the men keep
their eyes open for what the Germans call
Iron hat (elsen hut). This a red coating
of iron rust covering the hillside or the
rocks, which Indicates that the mineral,
which may He below, contains nickel and
The Crelghton mine, which I described In
another letter, was found in a swamp. The
nickel cropped out on the edge and was
followed under the water. The swamp was
then drained, and the largt-sl or bed of
nickel ever known was discovered. There
are other swamps about here which may
be standing on nickel. Indeed, the nickel
deposits of this countr seem almost in
exhaustable. It is estimated that there are
more than halt a million tons In alght and

Lake Superior Copper Basin.
Indeed, the most wonderful metal basin
In tho world Is that which contains Lake
Superior. This lake is the largest body of
fresh water on earth. It Is almost as big
as the state of Indiana, and in soma places
It is about 1,000 feet deep. This vast body
of water seems to lie in a basin ef valuable
ores. There Is copper all around It, and
iron mines on both aides of it which are
of enormous extent. The greater part of
the Iron used by the Steel trust comes from
Lake Superior, and Indeed it Is aafe to
say that most of the trucks over which
our railroads go are composed of Lake Su
perior ore.
I will iot speak of the vast bodies of
ore on the United Statea side Those on the
Canadian aide are known to be of vast
volume. Canada has ranges of iron moun
tains which are said to be a continuation of
the Minnesota mines, which now lead the
world aa iron producers. The Lake Su
perior company is shipping ere from some
of these mines, and ia using aome from
the Helen mines in connection with other
ores to make the steel rails for Canada' b
new railroads. In addition there are other
ranges of iron farther north, which are said
to be of great value.
It la the same with copper. There is a
belt of that metal running 400 miles along
Lake Superior and the Georgian bay and
extending northward to the height of land.
It is estimated to cover an area half as
great as Ohio, and there is no considerable
portion anywhere .in. It . In which copper
bearing rocks are not found. One square

Bruce mines and other properties, yielded
