Iowa Varsity Finds
Consolation in the
Defeat of Missouri
IOWA CITY, la.. Oct. KI.-(Hpeclal)-Local
followers of foot ball who took
oonel'lerable interest In the Missouri val
ley situation at the ttmn Iowa withdrew
from that body, are making much In
tireatlng comparisons of that organisa
tion and tha hlg Kjght In the light of the
recent game played with Mlnneaota by
Iowa and Nebraaka. Nebraska ha thla
year appeared to be far and away the
ftrongcat team In the Missouri Valley
conference, aa It defeat of Mlaaouii,
which had held Ames to a low count the
week before, by a score ot SI to 0, ehow.
Yet the Cornhuaker wet routed, 21 to
1, by Mlnneaota at Minneapolis, while
Iowa, on It howing so far thla year, one
ot the weakest member of tha Big Eight,
held tha Uopher to a practically Identical
core, 24 to t. and had tha ball within
lha Minnesota five-yard lln on five dif
ferent occasion. The comparison be
tween Mlnneaota and Nebranka Is, of
course, direct; but the llawkeye follow
er are using the Iowa showing a g
mean of comparing ita team with Amos.
On tha showing against Minnesota, Iowa
ta at least aa strong as Nebraska; while
Nebraska overwhelmed Missouri, and
Ames had hard work defeating the
Timers, I to 1 While thl mean of com
paring the teams la uncertain and gen
erally amount to I'Ule, It l being ued
her with considerable satisfaction be
cause of the comments which have been
heard over tha state to tha effect that
the Aggies are much stronger than Iowa
at thla atage. As a matter of fact, Iowa
students have unlimited confidence In the
ability of their team to win from Ames
on any and all occasions, and are looking
upon the contest with the farmer aa the
one sure victory on the schedule, al
though they also expect to win from
Purdue and Northwestern.

ASSOCIATION FOOT BALL
PLAYED AT MILLER PARK
The crowd at Miller park on Saturday
afternoon enjoyed a very lively game of
foot ball. The first match ot the aoasoii
was played between the Omaha Athleilci,
and a Swedish team from KlmwooU patk.
lha Swedmh team was outclassed In
every point ot the game. Their playing
bhowed a lack of training, especially in
aiming at combination. With a goon
coach this team would prove a very
formidable foe, ae they are a bunch ot
fine built young men. The strung fea
ture ot the Athletics was the forward
Una, Bailey, Moflutr and Walden break

the ball to the neta. But great credit
must be given the young bout. Hairy

drafting clerk In the coast and geodetlo
survey office has confessed that he
quite unintentionally enriched geography
with thla musical monosyllable, "No
one," he says, "was more surprised than
I when I saw the name on the map. It
happened tn this way:
"When the rush to Alaaka took place
on the discovery of rich gold deposits on
the Klondike In the early 'BOs the gov
ernment found It necessary to make more
complete maps of that then little known
country. Purveying parties were rushed
to the field, and as fast as their notea
una plots were sent back to Washington
they were turned over to this office to
make the official maps. There were
many panics In the field, and the maps
wero being continually called for by the
sold seekers. Hence for some months our
office was rushed night and day.
"Now It fell to my lot to draft a map
of the Alaskan coast that runs southeast
from Bering strait. This map wa to be
made from the field note and plot sent
by the surveying party In that district.
Such notes and plots always contain the
names and prominent mountain, capes,
inieta and the like.
"In making the tracing of the coast
dun-it from Bering strait I came serous a
headland for which neither notes nor
plota furnish a name. Accordingly I made
a pencil note at ihe point, putting the
word 'namer with an interrogation point
after it. thinking that the chief, when hu
edited the map. would put In the name,
if It had cue, or think up one If It hadn't.
In the hurry of the wurk, and due also
to the fact. I presume, that I had writ
ten the letter 'a' In the word 'name' very
much like o,' the matter was passed by
the revisers and my map was sent to the
engravers in that shape.
"A few weeks afterward I wa aston
ished on looking ever a stack ot maps
Just engraved from my original to sse
this particular headline designated
thereon as "Cape Nome." When, ahortly
afterward, gold waa discovered In th vi
cinity and a camp eatablirhcd there, the
town took the name of the cape, and Is
called 'Nome' to this day."

The rush of Booklover' contestants for
coupons and catalogues swamped the
girls ln charge of the sale of these arti
cles yesterday. It was thought that the
first contest had set a record for the dis
posal of these coupons and books that
would, not soon be enualed. but the nres-
ent one will break all previous marks..
Hundreds called at the business office
of The Bee yesterday and bought coupons.
t-very mail contained many letters In
fuest of coupons. The mall was so"
heavy, indeed, that some of tha letter
received yesterday will, hot answered
until late tonight.
All contestants should remember that
they have plenty of time in which to
answer the puzzles and to send In their
solutions. The contest does not close
until November y.
The rules governing the contest should
be read before questions are mailed.
Every set must be flat and all must
have sufficient postage, or els thv win

Qaestlons Comlna; Up.
One questioner yesterday wa In doubt
a to whether separate coupons should
be used in giving more than one answer
to each puzzle. The rules state that
coupons are preferred by the contest
board, but that their use is not obliga
tory. The use of uniform coupons makes
the work of the Judges easlr.
Coupons may be had at the business of

HOW TO CURE
Contagions Blood Poison is a viru
lent germ, and like most other bacte
rial organisms is very diffcult to kill
or destroy within the system. It
would therefore be useless to endeavor
to cure the disease with some strong1
medicine intended to destroy the dis
eased blood cells and virus. The
proper way the only way is to
REMOVE the germs and poisons from
the blood by purifying the circulation.
Thousands have cured themselves of
this powerful disease by the use of
S. S. S., the greatest of all vegetable
blood purifiers. This Is a medicine
of unquestioned ability in the treat
ment of Contagious Blood Poisou.
For more than forty year it has been
prepared and sold as a cure for this
trouble, and not only its efficacy, but
the fact that it does not contain a par
ticle of mineral, or other harmful
drug, should be an inducement to any
Contagious. Blood Poison sufferer to
begin its use. S. S. S. goes right
down into the circulation, and re
moves every trace of the destructive
virus. It heals all sores, stops falling
hair, and by cleansing and enriching
the blood, soon clears' the body of
every symptom. 3. S. S. cures to
stay cured; there is no future breaking
out of the disease. Home Treatment
book and any medical advice free.
S. S. S. is sold at drug stores.
