been made for a largo crowd to accompany

ROLLA IS WORKING
HARD FOR GAMES
AT ST. LOWS.
Columbia. Mo., Oct. 20. Missouri has
played tho third gamo of the season. In
Fpito of the manifest weakness exhibited
la the gnmc with th Warrensburg normals,
which was, however, the most satisfactory
contest of tho season, her supporters aro
mora enthusiastic than ever. Too often
have thry seen a Missouri team go in like
a lion and come out lilce a limb, and tho
Flow but sure movement the result of
Coach Murphy's earnest work with ma
terial, the greater part of it green and un

It wan evinced in the Warrensburg game
that it Is not the policy of Coach Murphy
to run up high scores in tho minor games,
which aro practically practice games, but to
work out new men. Every man gets his
chance, and If the coach finds he has any
thing in him he Is given a further trial.
He plays no favorites. If a first-team man
shows poor form he Is taken out, and is a
first-team man no longer. Tho results of
this policy are that he now has two com
plete sots of backs, four ends anl plenty
of line substitutes. Ono set of backs is
composed of Anderson, Hogan and Anson,
the latter playing at full. The others,
which Is possibly a shado stronger, la com
posed of Williams, Cooper and Thurman,

SPEED ON SUNDAY.
Dakota's Son Showed fine
Speed in Coursing Match
at De flodiamont Park.
Coursing was very pleasantly Inaugurat
ed In St. Louis on last Sunday. Tho day
was fine, the sport gcod for an opening
day. the arrangements pleasing, tho hares
good and ever escaping, which Is most lin
portant. It cannot be said that tho class of aged
dos.s wa3 very high. Jim Morley's Melll
tus. t!.o stake winner, ran smartly. Whllo
he dlsplajed little of the cleerne?s of his
dam. Melita. for the first tlmo In his life
he did ghe a glimpse of the speed his sire,
Dakota, should have transmitted to him.
Last year Mellitua was a clever, if some
what slow, puppy. He worktd elate, llko
his dam. but showed none of her speed and
less of his sire's great ability to get up
and go. Last Sunday he forgot his clever
ness and hhowid soma feign of his fast
sire. His wlldr.ess at times reminded ono
of Dakota, who when out of form, was a
very wild wcrker Indeed. The little fawn
dog's Improvement In speed and his ten
dency to run wild which was new pleased
Ids owner a lot, for It Indicated that ho
might some day possess part of the won
derful speed of hl3 sire. Ho has already
dlsplajed admirable cleverness. If ho
should In the future comblno tho speed of
his daddy with tho cleverness of hla mam
my ho might bo quite a dog.
Being an Irishman tho writer can say
that tho best dot; in the stake was a bitch.
This was DIuna Le Dlable. Glory Qua) to
beat her after an undecided heat. Tho
second course was a close thing. Both
times Diana led to the hare. Tho owner
of Glory Quaylo did not think his bitch
beat Diana In the second course. Judge
Brown said she did. Doubtless he was
right. Anyhow Glory Qualn was lucky to
do It, for the other bitch had the foot, tho
strength and tho cleverness, too. Tho
hare favored her opponent. Diana Is a
sturdy, smart little thing by Caliph, out of
Little Fairy. She was much abused by
being run out of condition last season and
showed a slight disposition to lay back on
Sunc"iy, though she was In pretty fair con
dition. Glory Quayle was also lucky to get the
nag over jii mas. 11 was a poor trial.
To a. very short slip Glory led on the In
side, turned, came round with the hare,
which at ence nwerved. apparently of Its
own volition. Gil Bias then made a meri
torious kill. It seemed a case of two and
two In points. Judge Brown gave It to
Glory, probably on the apparent wrench
after tho turn. Gil Bias was not at her
best by any means.
Mr. Curran's Van Natta ran an Improved
bitch over last season. She boat Mr. Doyle's
Fortuna in the early part of the course.
Later Fortuna came strong with her usual
go-bys, but Natta got In a very good kill,
saving herself in the nick of time.
She was afterwards beaten by Mellltus In
tho semifinal. She ran with pretty stle,
but seems to lack staying power.
Van Nye nlso ran in Improved form over
last year. Linda Is plainly dishonest and
will not nlve her nominator a run for hla
money. Royal Hill has had enough run
ning in small parks. Mellltus cannot stand
any too much of It.
Glory Quayle Is still weak in her stride
She does not gather properly and vigorous
ly She has latent speed and cleverness,
but a loin-weakness seems to operate
against her. Less sprinting and more
walking In training may give her more
strength and power.
Miss Adeline, foxy daughter of a foxy
sire, looked more like a greyhound, and
acted less like one. than any dog there. On
ths whole, bar Mellltus. Gil Bias and Diana

"You saw him fight McCoy." I sug;e;ted.
"Did you think at that time that the light

"It Was a rnkp," Snys Jeffries.
"Humph!" he exclaimed. "I didn't say
anything then, but I came mighty near ex
pressing myself at tho ringside. During
tho first two rounds I thought that they re
ally meant tight, but when I saw McCoy
purposely swinging a foot above Corbett s

Pastimo Park is not large enough for
coursing. But 't tho escape was where It
was last seavon a fairly good trial of run
up speed might bo secured. As things stand
now the coursing is no test of anything but
luck. With a hop. step and Jump from
chute to escape, and knowing the ground,
the hares will have no trouble getting home
before a trial can be secured unless tho
dogs are slipped on top of them. An In
stance of this was tho trial Iwtween Mel
lltus and Van Nye In the final course on
Sunday last. The slip was not any too
long. Mellltus led by three lengths on a
strong Inside. Van Nye ran true to line of
hare. Mellltus did not. fir they were run
ning In a semicircle. The hare got down
without a point being scored. Mr. Brown
surprised everv on when ho called It a
trial. If the plan of escape Is not changed
there will be many recurrences of unsatis
factory trials. The park Is small enough In
all sense, but to make It smaller by half Is
what the architect of tha scheme ol escape
has made lt-
