THE FOOTBALL TIME IS HERE.
The melancholy days have come,
The saddest of the year,
When little Willie wanders homo

And mud upon bis clothes.

The llsblng pole III Willie's hand
No longer can be found;
No more with marbles, kites or topi

No more ut "tip" or "one old cat"
Does Willie deign to play.
Hut fares he forth In baggy pants
And sweater soiled nnd turn.
And though his hair ho two feet long,
He scorns to have It shorn.
And ever and anon, behold.
As YVIIllo swaggers 'round,
He madly hulls his tender form
Head foremost to the ground.
Though battered be his fair young map
And lame his little, gimp.
Ho proudly bears his doughty scars
And glories In his limp.

King tossed It lo the spot where the

there the ball almost seemed to hang

In tho"e days mot centers passed the
ball back by rolling It along the ground
on Its shorter axis The quarters gave
the signal by pinching the center's leg.
Now cintirs are usually built pretty
solidly, nnd It took n pritty severe
pinch at times to net the ball from
them. That accounted for some oftba
plays that went wrong, the backs start

cause the center bad not felt the quar
