All ot the football coaches in Wash

weather In which to give their charge
more work. The past three weeks, dur
ing which the teams have been endeav
oring to get Into condition, have been
productive of little real football weath
er and without exception the men In
charge of the varlo'us squads are com
plaining. Georgetown has played two games,
and In neither contest has the team
been able to show anything like Its
usual vigor and dash. The' warm sun
has made It Impossible to do much more
-n through the games In a per
functory manner, with the coaches dis
trusted at the physical condition of the
team, which slow development Is laid
directly ut the door of the weather.
In the rtrst week's practice lain

the field was slippery and the players
were unable to do themselves Justice.

the same wall goes up. The late after
noons have been fairly cool, but the
teams for the most part have been un
able to get the men Into the proper con
dition and spirit to take up the game
with any degree of seriousness.
Coaches are hoping the snappy weath
er will soon come along wherein they
can get their men Into the proper con
dition where they will be willing- to
drive along at top speed. One of the
Georgetown coaches expressed himself
ai being unwilling to keep his men at
top speed during the hot pftrlod, as It

The calling of a meeting of the Na

world's series seems to foretell trouble
for Horace Fogql. tho windy president
of tho Phillies. He has stirred up a

Carl Cashlon made good jesterday at
Hartford, Conn., as an actor. He Im
personated Walter Johnson for five In
nings, giving but four hits, walking
now, and fanning seven In true John
sonian style. His speed was John
soncsque, and the Nutmeggers conclud
ed that he was worth the price of ad
mission. They recognised him from tho
start as the great "Kansas Cyclone."
Women entering tourney.
It Is gratifying In the extreme to see
so many women entering the District
tourney In the singles and mixed dou
bles this year. Last season In one of
tho tournaments the women's singles
failed to materialise because of the fact
that there were too few vntrlea, Miss
Eva Baker Is the title holder of the
District and looks to be the winner
again this year, bb the other players
are not as experienced.

Virginia Is beginning to get a taste
of tho hard luck which has been our.
Bultjp Georgetown these first weeks of
practice, ooverai gooa men are out with
Injuries at present, which necessitates
shifts In the line-up. In addition to this
the coaching staff has been depleted by
sickness or business obligations, al
though Jtlse Warren returns to his
"Tol" Pendleton. Princeton's football
captain, Is being played at the quarter
position again, and the change seems
to be permanent. Pendleton Is one of
the best quarterbacks In tho country at
present, and should be the natural and
logical choice for the big honor this
fall If he plays up to the standard of
Service elevens quiet.
Little Is heard of the Army and Navy
teams these days, although both teams
are hard at work developing new
elevens. The service elevens get started
later than the other teams In the coun
try, and at present little Is heard of
their progress. West Point has Its
usual hard schedule this fall, whllo
Navy has fewer hard games than are
generally found In former years.

If outside influences were responsible for chronic ulcers, then external
applications and simple cleanliness would be a curative treatment. But
the trouble is always in the blood which has become unhealthy and dis
eased, and keeps the sore open by continually discharging into'it im
purities and infectious matter. Salves, washes, lotions, etc., may causo

Percy Haughton Hopes His
Charges Will Score Heav
ily Against Eli.
Percy Haughton, Harvard leader, now
finishing out the fifth year of his con
tract at Cambridge, Is anxious to see
his eleven roll up a big score on Tale
this year. He has some old defeats to
squaro with tho Ells.
The scarcity of Crimson touchdowns
against the Blue Is one of the remark
able things of football.
During the four years that Haughton
has coached Harvard, the Crimson has
not succeded In scoring one touchdown
against Talc. Two of the games were
tied, 04; one game, 1908, Harvard won
on Kennard's field goal, and the other
went to Talc.
doing back a few years, the record
of Tale skill In defending the goal line
from Its most noted foe Is still more
notable. In twelve years Harvard has
only thrice been able to score on, Tale,
and In every year from 1899, except two,
the men from aCmbridge nave left the
field without having tallied a point,
Haughton, entering pn his last year,
wants to atone for this stinginess of
touchdowns by hurling an avalanche of
them on the enemy, and he believes
that the ew rules will aid him In his
plans, far. In the Judgment of most ex
