pGAME PROVES SHOCK
TO ORANGE AND BLUE
Poor Showing of University Eleven Gives South
Carolina Hope of j Victory on Lambeth
rflpecJal to The Times-Dispatch.]
Charlotteaville. Va,. October IS.?
?lbs Virginia football eleven enters
?no-morrow upon the most important
,'Wees, of home games, having contests
'-cheduled wuh the University ed
South Carolina and the Virginia Mili?
tary Institute. These two games are
eupposed to furnish a line on the
taam. Soutn Carolina comes to-mor?
row with the strongest eleven U has
had in recent years arid, after Vir?
ginia'* poor showing yesterday, ha*
Topes of victory. The students from
the Palmetto State University arc so
interested la the outcome of the con?
test that they trill receive every play
direct by wire from Laiuueth Field.
With the South Carola* contest out
of the way. Virginia will settle d^wn
'to prepare for Saturday's game witn
the Virginia Military Institute. Ltusl
. year the Lexington Cadets frightened
j Virginia *>>' scoring the first touch
' down- TU? served, to put the Orange
'and Blue team on its mettle, however,
'with the result that twenty-two points
fwerc rolled up on the visitors before
fthe final whis?e b ew. Judging from
r compare*.v.- scores this season. V. M.
i nas a on a nee to win next Saturday,
/provided the Orange and Blue puts up
-the same article of bail as ou yester?
day. The Cadets found little trouble
an pttiag tip twenty-seven points
sgainst Hampden-Sidaey, while Vlr
inia, on yesterday, was able to score
ut ten points on the Presbyterians.

Mt yesterday's game on Lambeth Field.
Jimmy Driver, a former Virginia back,
land now head ooach at South Carolina,
saw the game from the stands, while
tttji Lexington team had one of her
sjufcstitutas on hand, it is evident,
however, that they did not see much
to frighten them
! Seldom. If ever, have the football
agsowds at Lambeth Field been treated
Ho such a wretched exhibition of foot
phall as that which the Orange and
(Blue put up against Hampden-Sldney
assail 1111 iui afternoon. Lacking life,
(drive and power In the first period,
Wtrgtnia'a play grew worse as the
?gerne dragged slung, drawing from
president Alderman, who was on the
Uride Unas with Da Watts and Profes?
sors Lefevre and Doble. the remark,
?"The worst I ever saw."
i The specially weak point of Virginia
rasas in her loose back field work. In
?the first place, the backs played up
?.loo close to the line, and in nearly
(every case the man with the ball had
flltUe or no Interference. Whether
sfrom inherent weakness in the forma?
tion or failure of the Virginia backs to t
grasp their part in the plays, the ln
iterferenoe in the Virginia backfield
'e/esterday amounted to practically
nothing. Again and again the man
with the ball had to face one or two
Hampden-?idney tacklers before he
reached his own line, and In the at?
tempt to elude them he was thrown
back. Captain Todd. Gooch, Cook.
Blanc hard and Thorns showed indivi?
dual work, but the absence of Inter?
ference caused them to be thrown for
loss frequently. The Virginia ends,
too. seemed unable to get. the oppos?
ing ends out of the way. Often the
backs ran squarely Into the arms ot
either Jones or Ebel, or one of the
Hampden-Sidney hacks. who was
playing up close to the line.
Again, when Hampden-Sidney's line
was tried. It seemed that the Orange \
and Blue team lacked the punch. The
backs piled into a blind wall. Instead
of having any holes to get through,
and there were few plays with snap
enough to them to gain. -The fum?
bling was decidedly the worst seen \
here In seasons, the tackling was i
poor, the Interference nowhere and the !
defense heavywitted. A week ago no I
on would have believed that a team'.
of Hampden-Sidney's rating could'
have gained a half-dozen first downs j
against Virginia's giant forwards.
Aside from the poor showing of t're
team, the injury to Captain Todd was i
jeuj feature most regretted. The sp^edv '
Captain was Just recovering from the'
Injury he sustained lr. th. William and
Mary gam* . two--weeks ago and was
getting in prime condition for the bis
games ahead. The setback he re?
ceived yesterday will certainly keep
blm out of the game for one week, or
possibly two in fact, he will hardly
be well enough to get In the itne-?p

I before the Vanderbllt game in Kaan
While yesterday s small score was a
decided shock to I irglnla followers,
there is not the slightest feeling of
want of confidence in the team. Such
an exhibition as that given yesterday
i generally does the Havers good, and
j there is a general feeling that the
eleven, when all the cripples are back
, in the game, will yet strike a winning
! gait. Ine material on band this fall
! is the best in years, und the men are
getting the benefit of some good
coaching. Other alumni are expected
to come to the aid of the team tnis
week. Tutwiler. a star quarter back
in his day, is expected to arrive from
his home in Birmingham within the
next day or two. Others are expected
to follow before the end of the week.

game to his credit won by New York.
Opposing him will be Buck O'Brien, the
spltball pitcher. who pitched so
strongly against the Oiants in his
last time out. He had a beautiful game
to his credit then, but lacked control.
If O'Brien's control is good in to-mor?
row's game, it is doubtful, with the
winners' share of the big world series

in the grasp of the Sox, If the Boston
ians can be defeated. They will be
Imbued with such Overwhelming con?
fidence, and the Giants will be filled
with the thought of any mistakes prov?
ing disastrous, so that McGraw's men
will probably play a very conservative
game. This style of play, if too con?
servative, is liable to run into a big
Now Marquard faces a pretty serious
position to-morrow, as he will realize
that upon every ball pitched everything
depends. Of course, naturally, any
club with only one game to clinch the
world's series, no matter if the oppos?
ing club should be their equal in
strength, as the Giants and Red Sox
stand to-day, the chances all favor the
team with the most games won. which,
of course, means overwhelming con?
fidence. Then, in to-morrow's game*
my only guess is that the Boston Red
Sox should clinch the world's series
Of course, if they should fall down,
then I cannot see where the Giants
can possibly beat Wood In the next
game played. To my way of thinking,
the series will be decided surely in
the next two games.
Cady will surely catch O'Brien in
to-morrows game, making a little
change in plans, as Carrigan has al?
ways been O'Brien's man. Neither club
has any excuse to make as to the con?
dition of Its players. No man has been|
seriously injured in this series. There?
fore, these last games will be decided
upon merit alone.
There has been too much explaining
of defeats, bringing in the old argu?
ment of the Goddess of Luck, which
every "fan" who will just analyze the
game of baseball will realize is the
roost fickle to all dope. They will also
realize that these are just regular
games, where the best team is winning.
What I would like to see is a game of
such a score that some of the scribes
could not possibly figure out any ex?
cuse to make for the losing club.

ditions which he has framed.
Since the first show was held here la
1S83. at one time or another nearly
every kind of horse has b< en a popular
idol. In the first snow there were many
trotters and roadsters, because gentle?
men drove trotters on the boulevard
and at Fieetwood In those days and the
popular was supported In every well
kept stable. The second and third
I shows witnessed the growth of popu
j larity for trotters, and at the same
; time heavy draft horses had their sup
j porters. When the new garden was
? built, the present, one. the exhibits ot
J C. J. Hamblin and others made a show
j by themselves. Then the hackney
? grew In favor. Dr. W. Seward Webb,
i II. McK. TwombUy. W. D. Sloane.
j Henry Fairfax, Kbtn Jordan. Thomas
j W. Laws on and others purchaaed hack
; neyg abroad and showed them here.
? and year after year these gentlemen
! would vie with each other in their ex
i hlblts. Hamblin, Webb, Jordan. Law
' son. eacfi had his year, sweeping every?
thing before him. and from the hack?
ney developed the love for the hlgti
. ateppfrlg harness horse.
Alfred G. VanderMlt, the president
I of the National Association. Judge
? William H. Moore. Joseph W. Harri
j man. and Reginald V. Vanderbllt each
; secured fine stables of harness horses.
and they proved big attractions until
the automobile injured things in the
driving way genera'ly. Now it is
saddle horses, ponies, and hunters, and
I each of these divisions will receive
, big support from horse lovers. The
harness horse, however, Is not to be
' driven away. Instead, he is coming
; back again, and the demand for hlgh
I class horses is now greater than it
has been for a long time, and those
who are anxious to procure fine horses
are unable to do so. There are sev?
eral new ones which will be seen
at the coming show, and there are
some new hackneys, too.
It Is not certain yet what foreign
officers are coming, but there will be
English. Dutch. Belgian. Canadian and
United States officers In the interna?
tional contests, and the foreigners will
not have the easy times they have had
in former shows in these events, be?
cause the I'nlted States men have
! learned a lot and now have much bet
[ ter horses than they had In the earlier
! days of these contests.
