GOPHERS OUT TO PUT ON THE
Beam Is in Good Condition After Sat
urday's Battle, and Sets to Work
^with a Determination that Pleases
/the Enthusiast*Work of the Heav
iest Kind Ahead of Players.
The gophers are now face to faoe, "as It
weie," with what Is looally regarded as the
atiffest game of the 1904 schedule. A week
from Saturday the sturdy badgeis will come to
Northrop field, and to beat them the gophers
have a hard line of work before them The
practice was resumed last night, and from this
ttme on Wisconsin will be In the eye and thought
Of every player of the team.
The work which Minnesota has before her is
strengthening up the defense against the oncom
tmj onslaughts of the heavy men from Madison.
At times Satmday, Vita, Brush and Dan Smith
permitted shameful gains over them. Vita is
a new player, and with Case seems to be one of
the finds of the year. At carrying the ball he
proved the whirlwind of Saturday's game, but
naturally was weaker on the defense. This
weakness can be overcome In a week of work.
Vita is a fighter from cleat to headgear. He
has the strength and speed, and only needs
coaching in the ethics of defense to make him a
Percy Biush and Dan Smith were disappoint
ing Saturday. Brush is a man who should be
physically able to repel any assault at this po
sition, but there was a listlessness to his de
fense at times that did not please his friends
He has to overcome this or he will find some of
the other fellows giving him a fight for the po
sition. Dan Smith was slow to charge, and
knows how to play a better game than he did
The remainder of the line performed well
Case proved a rock on defense and a demon at
cany lng the ball Burdlck and Marshall plajed
good ends, Mai shall cairylng the ball in spectac
ular style a time or two "Sunny" Thorpe was
weakened by an injuiy in the first half, but
gave a splendid exhibition of gameness in re
fusing to quit the line. Mose Stiathern played
circles around Borg as a center, and continued
in the game aftei receiving an injury which
wesld have sent almost any man to the side
The refutation of the stories of bad condi
tion on the pait of the gophers is complete in
the fact that everj man was out Monday ready
for practice. The team, it is true, *!s not up
to the foim which they are expected to show
when Wisconsin is the opponent It was not
thought advisable to put the team to a high
edge for the Nebiaska game They were
bandied to put them in shape to bent Nebraska.
They did so
Wisconsin will be the heaviest team of the
year at Northrop field Those who have seen
them work declare that they have a poweiful
offense, and a defense which required hard bat
tering by Michigan to wear down and over
come. Minnesota has to beat them, and will
"move mountains' to do it if necessary Theie
is nothing in Minnesota's prospects to cause
gloom To paraphrase the old Bigelow papers,
"we have the coach, we have the men we have
the money, too" The writei's early season
confidence in the success of the team is unshak
en. There is a far distance to traverse In the
practice work, and a hard road for the men on
the team, but they realize it The success of
the season depends upon the individual work of
every member of the flist team and the substi
tutes. It is a time for eveiy fellow to put in
bis best work Loitering or shirking just now
will be fatal These are the days when the
coach has counted upon putting the needed finish
to his season work, and to bring about a suc
cessful season everv man must lend every effoit
and co-operate There Is but one thing which
can prevent Minnesota from having a "glorious
finish to quote an enthusiastic contemporary,
and that is the men themselves It is up to
them to make the team and hard work alone
will fount They have the fiiendshlp and best
wishes of the 50 000 football enthusiasts of
Minneapolis and vicinity, and should do their
utmost to retain and inciease it It is the
work befoie that wins football games. It Is

Chicago, Nov. 2.In all probability the Ameri

disciplined when the various matters that per
tain to it under the national agreement come up
before the big leagues at their winter meetings
While both of the presidents are keeping silent
in regard to the Independent stand taken by the
minors at their recent New York meeting, some
or the magnates are doing considerable talking,
.and the gist of their remarks Is that if the
little clubs do not know enough to let well
enough alone they should be cast off.
decision of the minors to create a new
Class of leagues and raise the drafting prices
'will almost certainly be turned down, while the
"Skel" Roach incident is likely to be made the
occasion for a severe reprimand, if it does not
result in the abrogation of the agreement as far
as the little clubs are concerned. President
Herrmann of the Cincinnati club and president
of the national commission, has expressed him
self as disgusted with the insubordination shown
by tha little fellows, who, It is claimed, have
been the greatest beneficiaries from the baseball
The minor-league problem will come up before
the American league at its annual meeting late
this month or early in December, and the Na
tional league will make a decision at its first
meeting. The fact that the minors are not
united on the questions brought up "makes it all
the more probable that the innovations will
not be accepted.

NEVER L0S2 A GAME
Carried American Colors to Victory\ Many Times in the
Early '8os^Drop Kicking Over One Hundred
Yards Was No Unusual Feat.
IRISH FOOTBALL, TEAM THAT WORE AMERICAN COLORS.
Dr. Bevln Is on the extreme right of the middle row.
That Dr. C. J. Bevan, 333 East Six-J "we played fifteen men on a side, one
teenth street, was a strenuous athlete in
the south of Ireland back in the early
'80 's many people of Minneapolis know,
but that he played on the Irish football
team which wore the American colors
and had a drop kicker who could drop
kick over a hundred yards will be of in
terest to the entire football public.
Dr. Bevan said this morning that he
knew of several Irish and English play
ers who could do the same wonderful
kicking, and stated that he had seen
the captain of the Queen's college, Cork,
drop kick the length of the field, 110
yards, several times.
"In time." said he, "when the Amer
ican game becomes more scientific it is
probable that the same feat will be du
plicated here. The ball used was much
the same as is used here. Of course
the eollege players there often stay on
the team for five or six or even nine
years, while in this country four years
is the limit."
The Irish football team adopted the
American colors on the motion of one
of the players after they had failed for
some time to agree. The motion was
carried with a jump and after adopting
the colors the team was never beaten
while wearing them. At that time they
had no regular time set for the halves
and as the team was in perfect condi
tion, having been first trained by a mil
itary instructor, they challenged their
opponents to 2-hour contests. The foot
ball season lasted from October to the
first of March.
Over there,'' continued Dr. Bevan,
fullback, four halves, two quarters, and
eight forwards. Th.e ball was not
passed by hand but forced out of the
scrimmage by the feet, a quarterback
snatching it up and passing it to a half
back. The halfbacks carried it down
the field by passing it to each other, if
they were unable to gain they passed it
to the fullback, who tried to drop kick.
It is much the same game that is played
there and in England today.
"Among the players who composed
the team, only a few still live in Cork
or in Ireland. Among those still left
there is Tom Hungerford, who is best
known now as the husband of the
'Duchess,' some of whose books you
have probably read. James Darling is
a trooper in tne Cape Mounted Bines,
South Africa Benjamin McCullough is

There %re hints of yesterdays in the
Elizabethan exterior of Mr. Ade's
farmhouse, and in the old Dutch and
English silver that glitters on the
Grand Rapids buffets and the old ma
hogany cellerets and crystal closets in
the diningroom and there are prophe
cies of tomorrows in the ultra modern
heating and plumbing appliances that
are as new and untried as the manu
script scenarios and librettos that rustle
pleasantly in the pigeonholes of the
author's new desk in his new library.
From the Philippines, where the
"Sultan of Sulu" was begotten of ex

Mr.'Ade wrote his maiden libretto to
the music of war and conquest from
the old quarter and the newer streets

beautiful in interior decorations.
It was amid all of the inspiring new
ness, and oldness, and beauty of this
home, that Mr. Ade's challenge for
dramatic fame, "The College Widow,"
"Why don't you get married?" I de
manded, and it was then that Mr. Ade
declared himself wedded to art.
"Of course," he remarked, musingly,
"it has not always been so. There
was a time when I felt that unless a
certain sweet thing became Mrs. Ade
life weren't worth living."
A silence, soggy with sentiment, fell
on the landscape. A silence that grew
oppressive until it was broken by the
choo-choo-choo of the asthmatic "little
tugboat that spat soft coal smoke over
the scenery in mtter defiance of all sorts
of ordinances. The snorts of the stag-,
gering boat roused the author from his
dark musings, and he ran his fingers
thru his hair as real playwrights always

She was the only daughter of a proud
and wealthy farmer. Have you ever

his money farming in Indiana? No?

occasionally to treat the fair one in the
manner demanded by her beauty and
popularity at Sunday school picnics,
circuseB, and similar festal occasions.
I had just celebrated my fourteenth
birthday, and at the same time had
made a joyous reckoning that my future
father-in-law owed me $2, when the
whole romance was nipped in the bud.
The farmer offered to give my father a
young pig in offset for my wages, and
the dicker went thru, despite the bitter
blight it entailed upon two young
hearts, the fair one was sent away to
boarding school, and all was over/'
Mr. Ade, overcome by recollections,
ordered another, and I racked my brains
for a sympathetic quotation to fit the
case. "Thou, too, sail on, O ship of
state," was the only poetry I coisld
think of, and that seemed hardly ap
propriate, so I coughed softly, and
asked with all the tenderness I could
throw into my voice, what' became of

"He waxed fat, and took all the prizes

he replied. "The sweet young thing
