Way Not to Do It is to Stand on
Football Side Lines.
Put on an overcoat. Wrap a muf
iler around your throat. Grab a
place at the rope along the side of
the field. Stamp your feet to keep
them warm. Light your cigarette
for distraction. Cough, sneeze.
Turn edgeways to the sharp winds.
Shout encouragement to the men
who are doing the work on the grid
iron. Catch pneumonia. But be care
fOl not to enter into the sport on
your own account. Remain a spec
tator. Then you will be a perfect
illustration of the way in which foot
ball assists the physical development

This is not a fact against football
as a game. It is a fact against foot
ball as an institution.
Football as a game was based on
sport and exercise. Football as an
institution is based on the desire to
win. It was the desire to win that
first put professionals on college
teams. It is the desire to win that
still involves college teams in what
President Fraunce, of Brown Univer
sity, in the World today calls "Sys
tematic prevarication" with regard
to the qualifications of their mem
bers. It is the desire to win that
causes colleges and the preparatory
schools to induce young athletics to
choose the scene of their future stu
*dies for reasons entirely apart from
mental or sucial development. Fi
nally, it is the desire to win that sur
renders football exclu'sively to the
few men in each college who stand
to play football unless he is on the
main team or the scrub team. And
the men v.io can make those teams
are already the strongest and health
iest men in the college community.
The desire to take cxercise or to
have sport. It brings into the domain
of sport and exercise the alien world
lv maxim that nothing succeeds Hkt
success. If success is not reached.

4Guests Are Harder to Entertain
.A curren writer bewails the fact
that conversation is fast becoming a
lost art. Not but what there is plen
ty of talking over golf, or of tennis,
the last game of bridge, and the long
run made by the new motor; but the
art of entertaining by conversation is
D being practically killed by the -strenua
ous mode of present day living. Men
and women talk of education, attend
lectures on abstruse subjects, and try
deep literature, but to what purpose
when so few opoprtunities are given
them for expressing their thoughts?
Even at society functions of today
:here is such a craving for novelty
andi such jack of conversation, that
the hostess frequently employs out
side talent to amuse her guests.
Nothing broadens the intellect bet
ter than an interchange of ideas and
a good, rational conversation; it
need not necessarily be a brilliant one.
In these days with many newspaper,
magazines, and books galore, as a ba
sis, why does conversation fall- so
fiat? Simply because the reading is
done so' hurriedly in order that some
thing else may not be kept waiting
that there is little or no time for ideas
to fix themselves in the brain of the
n:ader. People do no sit quietly at
home and read and converse as they
did formerly; there are too many out
side attractions. There is the theatre
or a concert hall perhaps, to attend.
In a summr a trolley ride out to some
pleasant country place, or again, a
business engagement, for in these
days business has to go on night and
day. Many houses have their pool
and billiard rooms and guests soon
find their way thither, or become en
grossed in a quiet game of cards. It
is all cielightful and all a distraction
from everyday annoyances, but it is
very unwise to drop sensible conver
sation and good breeding are nearly
allied, and in giving up one see that
the other is not forgotten.

Work for Women.
A Chicago society woman c

has set up an establishment wher
work will be one at figures designe
to produce a profit. She expresse

venture is in token of her faith.
Of course, every woman shoul
have something to do, and the on

ment could hardly suffer from lack c
mental and bodily employment, if sh
attended to her duties. It does no
follow, just because oversight of th
home may not appeal to her that sh
should learn a trade and for novelt
and amusement, enter into competi
tion with those to whom a trade i
the means of support.
If a rich woman learns how to bin
books as a diversion, there can be n
objection. There will be volumes c
her own for her to experiment or
and others doubtless could be o:
tained from friends. Or she migh
rely upon her mechanical skill as
means of winning bread if the da

To enter the field on a busines
basis would be unkind to the peopl
already there. Exactly as the woma
who desires to kill time, and have ex

mate pay, thus bringing down wage
and forcing hardship upon the rea
clerk. so this rich woman would con

7 They have preserved in Bedford,
- England, the door of the jail which
s was locked upon John Bunyan. I
looked at it long and earnestly. I
I thought of the many years which
- Bunyan must have pleaded behind it
f that that jail door might swing open
for him. Yet for twelve years the
- bolts of that door stood undrawn.
t But the delay was how effluently
a fruitful! Dreams were going on be

The reason for this is found in the
treacherous practices of former times.
When one man wished to kill another
a favorite device was to ask.him for
a pinch of snuff, and then, while the
unsuspecting victim was fumbling for
his snuffbox, the murderer had a
splendid oportunity. As this trick for
taking a man at a disadvantage be-.
came familiar it naturally grew to
be a point of good manners to make
your request when squatting on the
ground, when clearly you were in
tending no evil.
The Kaffir snuff is made from crude
-tobacco grown at every kraal, which
is powdered up and mixed with the
ash of the aloe, carefuly ground on a
quette to ask for snuff, and the donor
grants your request grudgingly, lest
he should be suspected of pressing
