Exude from the Northwestern
TO THE GOPHERS
We are convalescent now,
Verily, jou showed us how,
We are much obliged to you
For the way jour football crew
Ground our badgers In the goo,
We had hoped for better things,
But you spoiled our reckonings,
We supposed that you would boast
Of two touchdowns at the most,
But you did us a la Tost,
We are back on native soil,
Baok to studj and to toll,
But we never shall forget
How yon made our plungers bet
Some of them are walking yet,
Dear, beloved slater state,
We ha journeyed back by freight
And the only song we sing
Is a song of sorrowing.
Aren't you the horrid thing,
William Kirk In Milwaukee Sentinel.
Today winds up the work of Minnesota for the
came with Northwestern at Marshall field, Chi
cago, Saturday It 18" the last "polishing up"
the gopher machine will get. Tonight the teum
leaves for Chicago, and tomorrow wll lonly bring
light work for the players.
The natural conclusion, following Saturday's
-fjame, would be that the gophers would have
jetn easy time with the Chicago Methodists. Early
*n the season, McCornack's men were taken into
'camp by Stagg's warriors In shameful style.
r*rbeir play against Illinois has developed that
FMcCornack was far from having his men in
ehape when they met Chicago. The team, like
[(Minnesota, has Just come into form, and as a
presult what has been regarded as an easy game
has suddenly reverted Into what looks to be one
'f the hardest games of the year.
So far as weight is concerned, Minnesota will
ijave some advantage. To offset this, McCornack
bas been training for speed and spirit, and if
ft* 'pi ess dispatches aire to be believed has suc
seeded in getting what he sought. He is quoted
as saying that he is satisfied with the condition
of his team, and expresses a belief that his
jnen will get the charge on the "slow gophers.'
I Is evident that McCornack did not see the
game of Saturday. The gophers are not slow,
and if the Methodists have the reported speed
It will he one of the finest games ever seen.
There has been no resting by Minnesota this
weekno overconfldence Early week rumors as
to the improvement bf Northwestern, and Satur
day's scores, set the Minnesota governors to
looking rather wise. Following this the team
has been worked to maintain their form and
ffl Northwestern's Coaching.
Northwestern will be fairly "licked Into shape"
nraby Saturday. McCornack is superintending the
""coaching and Is being assisted by Jennings and
I Connor Jennings is looking after the back
field and Connor is handling the line. "Reddy"
Connor, the old Harvard man, Is well known
thrnout the east as one of the fiercest players
TV ho ever wore the moleskin, and if he does
not instill some of his fight into the Methodists
It will be because the Manchester man has for
gotten his old tricks. Connor is as tricky as
*v "they make 'em," and it will be strange If
eome of the gophers do not run np against the
results of his coaching He played on the Har
vard team in the old days, and has since spent
much time in coaching college and preparatory
school teams. Jennings plavs a milder game and
coaches a milder sort of offense and defense than
does Connor, but he, too, is a master of the
*:ame, and the Methodists are getting the advan
of this training.
,^*Fhe opinions of the three coaches who are
*ndling Chicago are given as follows*
"Fast* Whv, you never saw a teaman your
life that was faster than our men will be when"
*thev strike Minnesota.'McCornack.
"That team is in the pink of condition, and It
will not take many finishing touches to round
'them off "Coach Jci nings
we don't get the Jump on that Minnesota
I'll miss my guess."Coach Connor,
i All of this points to a fight of simon-pure pro
I The work of Northwestern on defense is said
to be something remarkable. This week they
Jiave withstood the battling and battering of the
^crub, and on Wednesday night the scrub could
pick up but four yards in fifteen attempts. Of
course, the Northwestern scrub Is not the equal
or the Minnesota team, but a team which can
hold Its scrub generally puts up a stiff oppo
sition to an invading team. Northwestern will
have thp advantage of plavlng on Its own field,
and, while this is of debatable quality, it Is one
of the beliefs of the game and must be admitted.
the Chicago team is said to he
doing all sorts of things to the., scrub. Mlnne*
sola, however, is not a scrub team, and the beau
tiful work of the trio-coached team may encoun
ter something of a brick in a hat when they
tart the "Ilossy doings" against the gophers.
An Indian Quarter.
Another point over which the Chicago coaches
re congratulating themselves is the great
generalship of their Indian quarter. Minnesota
has something of a quarterback in "SIg" Harris,
nnd. leaving the finish of the game entirely out
jf it, the writer will wager dollars to dough
nuts that Harris plays circles around the Indian,
nd in field generalship makes him look like an
Amateur. It is going to be a good, stiff fight,
without question, but when it comes to putting
Northwestern men, In their positions! above Min
nesota Individuals, the airship is beginning to
leak, especially in the case of Harris
It Is doubtful if the game is attracting as
much attention from the general public in Chi
cago as it is in Minneapolis. Here the fever is
mounting high. On the streets the common
salutation is- "Going to Chicago?" and the
general response. "Betcher life"' The traffic
Will be heavy and the gophers will not be with
our moral and yellsome support when they trot
out on Marshall field Saturday.
Join the crowd. Today it's "On to^Obicagoi"

who feel weak and discouraged, will
receive both mental and bodily vigor

McCornack Thinks the Purple's
Speed Will Overcome the
New York Sun Special Service.
Chicago, Nov. 17 Northwestern's 1904 foot
ball team will hold the last scrimmage on Shep
pard field late today. Not only will this be
the last scrimmage of the season, but it will
probably be the last scrimmage any purple team
will ever hold on Sheppard field, as Northwes
tern is to have a new athletic field, which will
rival any field in the west for size and the com
pleteness of its appointments.
The new playground will be constructed on
land a half mile north and a quarter
of a mile west of the present field.
The site of the new field has been donated by the
university, and the money for improving it is
being raised by subscription.
The Northwestern coach considers his chance
of downing Minnesota by no means a hopeless
one. He realizes that Minnesota has an ad
vantage in weight, but he says Williams' men
are decidedly slow this year. He hopes North
western's speed will be more than a match for

MITCHELL VS. BROOKINGS
Interest Growing in Thanksgiving Meet

Special to The Journal.
Mitchell, S. D., Nov. 17.The championship
of the football season will be determined in
the game Thanksgiving Day between Mitchell
and the Brookings agricultural college. Mitch
ell having defeated Yankton fti the game Mon
day, puts her in close touch with the champion
ship, and the game they have played so far
this season makes it appear very much that the
banner will float over Dakota Wesleyan uni
versity. Mitchell and Brookings stand on about
a par in the games they have played with other
teams, altho Mitchell defeated Brookings on its
home grounds several weeks ago, each, however,
making a touchdown, and Mitchell kicking goal
where Brookings failed. The game Thanks
giving Day will doubtless be the hardest game
in years, and it will be fiercely contested turn
out. The Mitchell team is making great prep
arations for the game, and expects to win Jt.

Referring to your puzzle of the 15th, I
would say, as It takes four games to win, A.
has won two, or one-half the game, being 24c
Charles won one. or one-fourth the game, being
12c. making 36c in all, so there Is 12c to divide,
now has two-thirds of the 36c, and two-thirds
of 12c8cor 32c in all, so A gets 32c,
16c48c. N. Russell.

I have seen the ad in the paper about a
Two boys were playing a match of craps for the championship of the street
and a side puree of 48 cents, when Casey, the cop, interfered, and broke up the
game. It was a match of seven games, and as Harry had won two games and
Billy but one, it was decided to declare the match off and to divide the purse in
proportion to their chances of winning. You see Harry has to win but two more
games, while Billy would have to get three, so who can tell how the 48 cents
should be divided? Casey gave a decision which did not satisfy either of the
lads, so they want your opinion.
To the first ten persons sending in the correct answer will be given a copy
of Mr. Loyd's marvelous book of Chinese Tangrams, containing 700 puzzles and
much pertaining to the mysteries of mathematics, oriental art and philosophy,
which will interest every member of the family.

As I saw your puzzle in the paper last night
I thought I would try and answer it. Tho I
know nothing at all about the game of craps, I
will try my best. I got for an answer that
Harry will receive 27 3-7 cents and Billy 20 4-7
cents. Yours respectfully, Hulda Berger,
20 Langford Park Place, St. Anthony Park, St.
Paul. In three games of craps played, Harry has ad
vantage two to one In his favor. The four un
played games chances of winning are equal.
Therefore, chances being equal, Billy gets two.
of the games and Harry two. That leaves the
48 cents to be divided four to three in Harry's
favor, or 27 3-7 cents to Harry and 20 4-7 cents
to Billy. George A. Emerson.
Commercial Hotel, City.
I think Harry should have 30 cents and Billy
18 cents. Warren Hopwood,
1909 Portland Avenue.
Since the chances for Billy and Harry to win
the game of craps are as 2 to 3. I arrive at the
conclusion that Harry ought to receive 28 4-5
cents, while Billy ought to receive 19 1-5 cents.
But as there cannot be any fractions in cents.
Harry would naturally receive 29 cents, while
Billy would receive 19 cents.
