terestlnK reminiscences Friday con

Insane at the tlmu ho made his will.
When Mr. Smith was under treatment
at Dr. Horry's it wns suspected that he
was not right In mind. Dr. Horry said
Prldny that Mr. Smith labored under
the delusion that he. wns being persecuted
and that Dr. Horry was the only person
who could protect hint. On one occa

and presented It to Dr. Horry as a token
of his legard, and ho also gavo Dr.
Ht.rry a nolo to glvu to the probate Judgi,
ordering tho latter to sell all tho properly

other possessions In connection with tin-
case. This i heck and note 'vetu produced

Dr. Herry, divw threo wills and attached

pressing Interest at tho present time were

Vermont spoko nt noon upon "Moham

Ktnorson discussed "An UHal Social
State" at 7:30 p, m.
Prof. f). II. Perkins's discussion of Mo
hammedanism showed that the religion
should not be Judged by Its fruits, as re
fleeted In Armenian massacres and other
atrocities. He showed by reading of se
lections from the Koran, as well as from
various noted writers on tho Mohnmme
dan faith, that thn principles of that re
ligion nro In many ways admirable, hav
ing some points of reseniblanc to the
Christian religion. The fundamental prin
ciples of Mohammedanism are six In
number, the first of which Is belief In one
!nd, nil wise and all powerful, and mer
ciful, Mohammedans also believe In an
gels, prophets, the Hook, immortality and
the Judgment, nnd In predestination bor
dering In many Instances upon fatalism.
The Mohammedan religion represents a
mixturo of Christianity, the Jewish faith
and heathenism, and white It lias some
weaknesses, It unquestionably resulted In

so far ns sports go, and tho athletic com
mltteo, at a meeting on Saturday, ap
pointed George L. Winter, well known
In baseball circles, to furnish the knowl
edge of the game which Is calculated to
lead Vermont through another successful
season, Tho malerlnl for the team Is snld
to be excellent and n good schedule la
already a certainty.
Winter, besides being a good baseball
man, Is well qualified to coach tho team,
as he has not only played ball with a
number of players but Is well acquainted
with Vermont Ideals and the customs nnd
habits of the university. He watched the
team work out last year nnd knows what
every man who held down a position dur
ing that season can do nnd, what Is more,
his knowledge of baseball Is respected
by every man who plnyed last year.
Inter s baseball career begnn when
he pitched for the Mlllcrsvllle State
normnl school In Pennsylvania. He later
went to Gettysburg College and pitched
nnd played outfield, alternating with
Eddie Plank, now of big league fame.
From college ho went Immediately to the
Boston Americans nnd was with them
for more than eight years, during which
time he won a reputation for his Inside
knowledge of baseball. From Boston he
went to Detroit and wns with that team
when It won the American Leag'
pennant. Following his big league career
of 10 years he went to Montreal and from
there was transferred to Toronto. For the
past few years he has been playing man
ager nnd captain of the St. Johns team,
nnd while with this aggregation has had
Winkler and other Vermont men under
him. Under his leadership, the team which
was far down the ladder in the league
rose rapidly and finished well.
The outlook, so far ns material goes,
Is good for the reason that most of the
stars of last year will be eligible to play
tills spring, ilrolm and Winkler nre
back for the box artists, and Mayforth
will no doubt again ofllclato behind the
bat. "Jake" Flaherte will captain the
team and everybody who knows him be
lieves that he will make good. In addi
tion to these, there are Dutton, Herry,
Maiden. Swett nnd others who can be
depended on. Halsteln cannot play for
the reason that he signed up with pro
fessionals, going to Chicago, and Dowd
Is debarred for the same reason, as ho

tho kicker Is out. If his kick Is caught on
tho fly he Is out, which holds good If the
ball la kicked along the ground and pass

The catcher can run along the first or

ground kicks the ball may be passed by
as many of the fielders as necessary. A
fielder may kick a ground ball to first
Instead of passing It, If he deslrefi. The

The ball must be tlolded to the base

not leave the base iui Is on until tho ball
has been kicked. Double plays may bo
made as In baseball. The man who was

One or two officials mny be used, but
they must be oft the playing field.
Since Professor Henscoter has been
teaching In high schools he has seen
many students receive Injuries while
playing football. What ho wishes to have
done away with, is the contact which
always occurs In football, when players
come together In head-on collisions. He
does not believe the football rules com
mittee can change football and mako It
safe for secondary school pupils, as tho
personal contact Is the most fundamental
point In the game.
Another thins ho is In favor of, is
athletics for high school girls. Ha
thinks that If the boys did a little more
studying and a little less athletics, and.
If the girls did a lltte more athctlts and
le.s studying, tho high schools would be
greatly benefited. Union football can be
played by girls. The Wilkes-Harre girls
have played It and have found it good
sport and excellent exercise.
Some of the athletic associations of high
schools near Wllkes-Barre have already
asked Professor Heneoter for directions
for playing the new game. They are

Prof, Emerson was sanguine thai tho
time would come when an Ideal state of

When that time cntno a shoo dealer, for

a livelihood, but ho would make the moat

powerfully dominates thn present age.
That age would come not through the
fabrication of government, as one would
sit down und formulate n constitution, but
It would be a process of evolution, the
outward manifestation of the nobler
spirit within us In short, the ideal social
