Central High Meets Sioux Falls Next The Central High School foot ball team will spend this week preparing for the Sioux Falls game here next Saturday. There .is talk now of a post-season game jbetween Lincoln. High and Omaha High to definitely settle upon a state champion. This will depend somewhat upon the game between Lincoln High and Beatrice High next Saturday. If Lincoln should win this game the championship will still be unsettled. If Beatrice should prove the winner, comparative scores would favor Omaha, since it defeated Bea trice week ago, and the .Omaha players concede Beatrice a chance at turning the trick. ; , i . ; Although Omaha was outplayed in the first half of both the Lincoln and Beatrice games, it did not enter the two games in the same spirit. In the Beatrice . game Omaha looked throughout, likei winner. The team entered the Lincoln game in a nerv ous state and threw away several good chances to score in the second half, when clearly outplaying its jTW If a post-season game is arranged, it will probably be played in Omaha, and during December the weather would probably be no more disagree able tnan tnat encountered at.

Famous Haunt of the Down-and-- . Outer Run by Former Prue - Fighter. : ; As a relief to the frequent plaintive recital of political flops, so lamentable in some instances as to bring about, as in' the civil war, the separation of brother from brother, one is delighted to read of another kind. This is Hogan's "flop," the word carrying with it the thought of throw ing yourself with small preparatory measures on any place of rest that can be obtained. Ben Hogan, who estab lished it in Chicago many years ago, is dead. But the flop remains. Out casts can still find a bed at Hogan's shelter for 2 cents a night payable strictly in advance and soup to re pletion at a price a shade below cost. The fact that Hogan was a prize fighter before his conversion may have had something to do with his methods afterward. Prize fighters are not without acquaintance with battered humanity. In fact, if the blows are received in fair fight, even knockout becomes honorable. More over, men of his following deal with individuals father than with theories. Consequently when Hogan was con verted he went after men. Theology may have tost an able dissector, but the down-and-outers gained. "I learned there was more to. serving mankind than by giving hungry men words," Hogan once said: "that is the reason I started the soup mission and the flop." No one can ever know the good that. Hogan did. Somewhere, doubt less, in the line the soup -and -the "flop" made all the difference. In his "Pasha of . Many Tales" Captain. Marryat tells of the Arab merchant, about to perish in the sands of the Sahara, saved by the crust of bread his little child had thrust into his pocket on leaving home. Crises of no less moment may occur in the streets of great cities. Hogan helped un fortunates and at the same time pro tected that greatest of all their re maining possessions, self-respect. The 2 cents must be forthcoming. Even if it were "panhandle" there was merit in giving it up to Hogan, demanding in return the right to "flop" as the result of an honorable transaction carried on between man and man.

He is the uncrowned king of the tropics, the Cecil Rhodes of Central America, a demigod in the eyes of half a dozen republics. There sits daily in an unpretentious office at Battery place, New York, a silent Hercules who is transforming the American tropics from a jungle to a fruit garden, who is creating pros perity, health and peace where only poverty, "disease and revolutions for merly luxuriated, who. is busily steel rail linking Central American repub lics t one another as a necessary preliminary to their union into one powerful commonwealth and who, also, is plodding to make it possible to travel from New York, Chicago or San Francisco all the way by rail to Panama or even to Rio Janeiro. Minor C. Keith was a Brooklyn lad who, at 16, started in a men's fur nishing store . on Broadway, New York, at $3 a week, didn't care for selling collars, socks and neckties and quit in six months to become a lumber surveyor." He made $3,000 in the first year and then went into the lumber business on his own account, his father having followed that in dustry. -- Before old enough to vote he was raising cattle and hogs on a bleak, uninhabited island called Padre Isl and (as long as Long Island), near the mouth of the Rio Grande. He had looked over the country- after the civil war and decided to seftle on this forsaken territory; Only one other family lived on the island. Here young Keith trained for the battle of life, under rough, nerve trying circumstances, with two revol vers never .unhitched from his belt and with cattle thieves and other care-free gentlemen all about him when he crossed to Texas and the Mexican border to buy cattle. He rose at 4 every morning, roughed it for sixteen hours daily, often slept outside and prospered, He reared and bought cattle all over the surrounding territory to kill tor their hide and tallow. I he beef, not worth anything in Texas in those days, was fed to swine I He amassed a herd of 4,000 stock cattle and 2,000 pigs. Stock cattle were , then worth $2.50 to $3 and steers brought $1 for each vear of their are. (Todav. alast we city folk pay 35 cents a pound fo the choicest parts of such steers!) Then something happened to change the course of Keith's career. His uncle, Henry Meiggs, was the famous builder of the first railway over the Andes and of other epochal South American lines. Minor s eld est brother, Henry Meiggs Keith, had joined his uncle in Peru and had taken over a contract from his uncle to build a railroad in Costa Rica for the government. One day, in 1871, Minor received a letter from his brother asking him to come to Costa Rica. Minor's job was to run the com missariat of the railway. His brother subsequently died and the construc tion of the railway was suspended through the government. Also, to make possible the money. In order to carry out his brother's undertak ing he reconjtracted the coast line of the railway with the government. Also, to make possible, the building of the mountain section tor which the government had not the needed $6, 000,000, he made a contract with the Costa Rica government to settle their external debt which had been de faulted for thirteen years. He pro ceeded to London and after many dif ficulties arranged a settlement of the debt and all arrears of interest, and obtained $6,000,000 for the construc tion of the railway. The International Railways of South America "The Pan-American Railway" is not a mere paper rail road. Half of it is already built. Con nection has been made on the Pacific side with the National Railways of Mexico, at the Guatemala boundary. The road runs down the Guatemala coast and then cuts clear across the continent to Puerto Barrios, on the Atlantic side; this transcontinental line is now in profitable operation, the net earnings (or profits) in the first four months of this year having been $667,545. From midcontinent the line is- being built straight through the little republic of Salva dor to La Union, on the Pacific. Next It will past through Honduras and OMAHA, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1916.

The Costa Rican system will then be reached, and from Port Limon to the Panama canal will be the final link on the northern side of the "great divide." The South American extension, Mr. Keitn is confident, will follow. More than 570 miles of the Interna tional Railways are today actually operating-rand making money; And the daring project is daily creeping toward completion. "I have heard, Mr. Keith, that you hope to bring about the union of the five Central American republics Guatemala, Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. Is that your ambition?" I asked. He gazed into space. Then: , ."I believe that will come. It will be a great thing for them all. rfut only railroads can bring it about. The people of Costa Rica today are strangers to the people of Nicaragua, although their countries adjoin. There must first be commercial and social intercourse. The railroad will make that possible."

A drama of heart gripping interest. laid in Europe and extending over a period of thirty yeara or longer, has just reached its happy climax on this side ot the Atlantic tn the meeting of two half-sisters, one of whom has long been searching for the other, who never knew before that such a relative existed. The principals in this drama are Mrs. Yetta Goldman, wife of a cloth ing manufacturer, and Mrs. William Phillips, who came here four months ago and lives with her family within a block of where the Goldman t re side in Vineland, N. J. More than torty years ago a sol dier in Russia married a pretty village maiden at Danaburg. A few years later the soldier,,tindmg himseit too f oor to support a wife, divorced her. n the meantime a child was born and was named Mary. The parents of the divorced wife tools her back into their home and later she married asain. but the fact that the second husband waa not her real father was kept studiously from little Mary. The soldier recouped his fortunes and married again. Mis only aaugnter was named Yetta. Thirteen years ago she came to America and on her departure an uncle told Yetta that perhaps she might find a sister In the new land. 'Her name is Mary and she comes from Danaburg," the uncle explained as he unfolded the strange story to Yetta of her soldier father's earlier romance. ' So Yetta came to America with a new incentive to find a sister. This strange quest continued for thirteen years. Then the other day Mrs. Gold man met a new ngignour on int street.

' SIGNED B7 THOUSANDS (Correspondence of The Associated Press.) London, Oct. 31. A 'petition ' it shortly to be presented to the British government by the "Strength of Brit ain Movement" asking that the Brit ish government follow the lead of the greatest of the allies to prohibit the sale of alcohol. This remarkable ap peal has already been signed by 1,000 representatives of the brain power of the nation, including leading officeri in the army and navy, directors of mu nitions, privy councilors, prominent men in literature, art and music, fi nance and industry, university and college professors, heads of public and secondary schools, prominent scientist and medicalmen. : , The memorial claims thaWtwo grave dangers stand before the coun try, holding back the power of early victory and throwing a shadow over the vision of peace. One is the wast ing of alcohol, the other is the im periling of infant life. Among all the factors of weakness these confront us with terrible vividness and they lie within our own control. With the weakening power of alcohol removed our national effort against the enemy would' gather increased Strength; with the increased strength and more rapid supplies our losses in six cam paigns would have been substantially reduced. ' Facta Are Enumerated. The following facts are given con cerning the effect of alcohol: It hinders the army, delays muni tions, keeps thousands of men from war work daily, makes good workmen second rate. Hampers the navy, delays trans ports, places them at the mercy of submarines, slows down repairs and congests docks. .

" Russia and her prohibition is made much of in the memorial which con cludes: . "We are no temperance reformer as such. We stand for the great de sire of all-good people to atrike the mightiest blow for freedom of which Britain is capable. ' We support the demand for prohibition made to the government by its own investigatora, and by the Shipbuilders' deputation, with not a teetotaler among them, in March, 1911 Believing, in the prime minister's words, that no sacrifice ia too great when freedom and honor are at stake,' and that rich and poor alike should bear it, we ask the govern ment to suspend all drink licenses throughout the- kingdom for the period of the war. - "We believe golden moment has arrived for our oountry; that, pre pared for the sacrifice by the exam ple of the king and Lord Kitchener, the nation is ready for the natural step that France and Russia have al ready taken. The suspension of the liquor traffic during the war, the con version of the public houses into homes of refreshment will quicken up our civil and fighting populations, will MliqhtheartedVfavana" raise a new fire of resolution in our people and will give to millions the first opportunity they have ever had of breaking old habits of weakness and forming new habits of strength. "We believe that in. this, as in all other vital issues, there must be sym pathy and unity of action between the allied nations, and we appeal to the government to be bold and trust our people, to be strong and follow our allies, to be worthy of the mighty des tinies they hold in solemn trust."
