rrECIAL TELrGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
Sew Tors, Oct 27. There is great un
easiness felt at Princeton over the possible
return of Hefielfinger to Yale College in
time for the big game with Princeton.
"It would be just like Yale to set him in
the line a day or two before the game.
Heffelfin;er is in training with thj Chicago
team and could get into his old position in
a jiffy. The only thing we conld do to off.
set such an emergency would be to get Jesse
Ei?gs back again," said one of the Prince
"Jesse remarked while here recently that
he only quit Princeton College because Hef
felflnger left Yale. I hare no doubt that
we could get him back again in a hurry if
Hen? was to jump into the Yale line."
So far the Princeton men hare made every
endeavor to induce Riges to enter college
and take his old place on the team, but
without avail. If Hefielfinger joins Yale,
ns the Princeton men suspect, there is very
little doubt that Jesse will again jump into
a canvas jacket for Princeton.
Slay Face 1 acta. Other Again.
In case these two great guards meet on
the field again the battle between them will
he worth going a hundred leagues to see.
They have tussled rear after year for the
mastery, and while Heffelflnger is a faster
sprinter than Kiggs and possibly a better
ground gainer, Ri?gs has held him down
better than any man who has ever faced
There is some ground for the uncertain
feeling in Princeton with regard to Hefiel
finger. The ex-iale guard came Eat with
the Chicago team last week, and by this
time all the eloquence of Yale is being
brought to bear upon him. Every induce
ment will be ofiered him, just as the Prince
ton men have offered all inducements to
Kiggs. Then again, Yale is always spring
ing something in the nay of a surprise on
their opponents. If they can catch Biggs
out of condition it would be just what they
would desire. Heffelflnger can plav horse
with the ordiuarv run ot guards. It he can
withstand the blandishments of the Yale
men he will prove a wonder. Of one thing
the football public may rest assured: It
Hefielfinger plays with Yale Eiggs will
Blames It All on Princeton.
Prof. Ames attributes all of Harvard's
football tribulations with Princeton to the
press. Then the able arbiter'of Harvard's
football destinies goes on to say that Har
vard will not join a multiple league and that
Harvard will not plav Princeton unless they
can play on Thanksgiving. Then, again,
according to Prof Ames, Harvard is, afraid
oi being "scandalized" it she plays too often
an .rew xork.
The Thanksgiving Dcv game between
Yale and Princeton is a fixture, yet Prof.
Ames would have Princeton throw it over
for the sake ol playing with Harvard. The
Princeton football men when seen bva
eporter yesterday would say nothing
nore than they would like to arrange a
game with Harvard on any day but Thanks
"How would Kovember 19 suit them?"
suggested a student with a yellow and black
cap. '"Ihey play Yale on that day, but a
little thing" like 'that should not bother
them. They can throw Yale over quite
as easily as we can."
The best of good feeling prevails toward
Harvard, and in the opinion of many of the
students the breach will be healed in time
for a came next season.
"They merely have a different method of
doing things over there," said one of the
students. "We will play football with any
college on earth at any possible time outside
of Thanksgiving Day."

disagreeable feature. J. H. Lenin, Jr., had

ever, entered a foul against Lewis for cross

Mr. Lewis was called Into the Judges' stand,
but notwithstanding his claim that Ecarte

told Joe Goddara that John L. Sullivan, with
a swing on the j aw, could put him out very

laughed and said: "I can lick Sullivan
without Betting a black eye. As for him
knocking me out with his right hand, I'll
tell you what I will do: I'll put up $5! right
now, or any other time, against the same
amount, that I can, with my hands
down, let Sullivan hit me with his right
with all his force, and he'll not knock me
out. He may knock me down, but he can't

"You have beard that the Conoy Island

"I have never objected to anv nlaca whom

think the conditions nnderVbich we could

Jackson said that he had seen Mitchell,
but did not believe that the latter's talk
about fighting Corbett amounted to any
thing. As lor Jim Hall,he had no idea when
that clever boxer Intends leavinir Eno-lnnd.
Peter asked about his manager, "Parson"
Davie, and Inquired particularly for Joe

that Jackson would be in the Californian's
corner on Monday night. This is denied by
Peter, who will figure only as a spectator

York, Oct. 27. Special. Tom
AHoosler Re-Marries His First Wife After
Both Had Been Twice Divorced.
Mitchell, Ind.. Oct. 27. James Scarlett
and Mrs. Belle Gibbons Scarlett Taylor were
married yesterday near Orangeville, in
Orange county, and thereby hangs a tale.
At the head of Lost rlyer in the spring of
1878, tbe same oouplo stood under a largo
rock over-hanging the side of the valley,
while Justice Boss pronounced them man
and wife. At that time "Jim" was not
"solid" with Belle's parents, and the ar
rangements had to made by a third party.
A handkerchief on a neighbor's door was
tbe signal on the day or the wedding for
Belle to go to the place where the marriage
ceremony vias performed, she telling her
mother that she was going to the spring for
a- pail of water. "Jim" had his wife In his
homo three miles nway before tne angry
parents were notified of the romantic event.
But tbe parents cooled off nnd the happy
twain went to livo with them. In n. mw
months, altTIough they lived In peace. Jim
wanted to live away from her parents, and
ns she would not go with him they sepaiatod.
Belle got a divoroe and Jim married again,
settling on a farm nearby and doing well.
His new wife, however, was too Jealous to
live so near Belle, and persuaded Jim to go
to New Albany, where he woi keu in the car
shops nntil his wife's bad conduct made bin
leave her. Belle, in the meantime, had mar
ried again: bnt she became tired of her hus
band, arranged a visit to Illinois, and after
returning got a divorce from him and went
to live with her parents again.
Jim returned to his old home also, and the
two thus saw each other often, until they
began a second courtship, which It is said
resembled that or young lovers. James'
second wire secured a divorce from him in
tbe Floyd county courts only a few months
agt, and made his second marriage to his
first wife possible.
