" Ye Merry Game of Football."
"Ye Merry Game of Football from An
cient Times Till Now" is the title of an
illustrated article in the November St.
Nicholas from the pen of N. O. Mes
senger. The Greeks invented the sport,
and through the Romans it reached the
Britons. In the time of Queen Eliza
beth football was in high favor. It was
played in the city streets, on the com
mons, and in country lanes. There was
not much rule or order to the game, the
object being merely to put the ball into
the enemy's goal, by fair means or by
foul. The goals might be a mile apart,
with ditches and hedges and high
roads between. The players struggled
in earnest, and broken bones were no
rarity in the rush that followed.
This was probably the roughest and
most brutal period in football history.
The accounts of the times speak fre
q lently of accidents, and too often there
were fatal incidents in the playing of
Shrove Tuesday was football day in
those times, and then the whole popu
lace went football mad. Every one
turned out to kick the ball. There was
one grand scramble to reach it ae it was
punted down the streets, over housetops
and across commons. The merchants
barred shop windows and doors as the
merry crowds surged through the
Btraets, for scant heed was given to any
obstacle that stood in the way of the
pursuit of the ball. Sometimes two or
more crowds, in chase of the flying pig
ekin, fell foul of one's another's course,
and there was a to-do, the strongest held
the right of way, perhaps carrying off
both ballb, and causing the other crowd
to join their pursuit.
With the year 1800 the game began to
be adopted by the schools and universi
ties as the leading sport. In 1863 an
association was formed and it was made
a scientific sport. At this time the
game was played differently by differ
ent universities. Rugby permitted car
rying the ball, holding- runners, charg
ing and tackling, while Harrow ani
Winchester only allowed kicking. In
1871 the Rugby union was formed, and
rules laid down. Prior to 1875 Ameri
can universities paid little attention to
football. It was Harvard that brought
the game to the United States, and in
order to have a foeman worthy of its
steel taught it to Yale. "Old Eli" took
gracefully to the drubbing that was in
volved in learning the first lesson, which
was learned so we'I that for many yeatB
thereafter Harvard had no more victo
ries. The Rugby game has been developed
in America mainly along the lines of in
terference and tackling. ThevYankees
were quick to perceive advantages
which could be gained in this direction
and put them into play. In 18SG
Princeton introduced the "wedge,"
using it against Harvard, who in turn
took it up against Yale next year. Then
Harvard went one better and brought
out the "flying wedge," which with the
"V,"the "push" and the "plow," are
permanent features of football work.
In the perfection of football playing
into a scientific sport from the old
lough-and-tumble game of the past an
involved system of signals has come into
use. The signals are made by calling
There 6eems to be no lessening of in
terest in the sport. There may be as
many as twenty thousand spectators,
and the great game of football, which
began with the Greeks, was carried on
by the Romans, developed by the Brit
ish, and perfected by the Americans,
seems to be indeed the king of autumn
