BflY of rugby played in llio county. Hut
BflY. nt Hint tlmo our two high school,
Bflfl I tho Onrbon County High sohool and
BflY tho l'rtco ncmlomy, mot for tho first
B , tluio on tho gridiron nnd pronounced
B" tho gnmo of rugby to bo of nucli an
BH Inlornitlnc nature that It would be-
Bflfl co mo ono of tho tnaln sports of tho
BflV county. A few Interesting tilings
BflV concerning tho rules of tho gnmo
BflY might bo montloncd which will bo of
BBS benefit to tho public.
BBY First, tho gnmo In played between
HBflJ two tennis, of eleven men each on n
IBB' rectangular flold which In n hun
HBflf -p. drod ynrds long nnd n hundred xlx-
BBf tr feet wldo. At tho middle of ench
Bflm end of tho field I n gonl, conslst-
HBflj lnc of two uprlglitH eighteen feet
BBj nil Inchon apart nnd n crosshnr lio-
flflflf , tween them which Is ten feel from
BflV tho ground. The object of tho gnmo
Bflfl Li to enrry tho ball across the op
Bii ( poncnl's gonl line.
Bflflh To begin tho Kama, tho two cap-
HK Inlng draw to sou which end of tho
Hl field they nro to hnvo. Tho side
K losing linn tho chnnco to chooso
B-' whether they kick the ball to tho
Hj other sldo or rccclvo It. After this
B ' decided, tho two leama lino up In
Bflfl tholr respective place, nnd when
Bflflj thn roforoo blown IiIh whlstlo, tho
Bflfl Knrao begins. Tho sldo "kicking
iPflfljIf ,, oft" tho ball put It on tholr forty-
f yard? lino (forty ynrd In front of
.tholr goal), nnd then kicks off to
their oppononts. Tho opponent re
echo tho ball nnd atari to carry 11
until downed by tho idle vhloh
Ji kicked. They, of courso, carry It
HHHJ toward tholr opponent' goal. Whon
HHH "downed" with thu ball tho referee
flflflr blows his whistle nnd call "first
HHH down and ton yards to go." Note
flflfll tlint tho team In possession of thu
ball ha four chnncet to gain ton
JIB yards, nnd If they fall tho ball goes
PHBj Into tho possession of tho other
', 1 - Mldn nnd It trios four times to mnko
i fl& ' tho ten yards. If they mnko their
HHHj . ' ten yards In four or less downs,
IB they continue until they full or
B cross tho opponent's gonl line. If
HHHr thoy cross tho opponent's goal lino
flflflf It counts n touchdown or six points.
flflflj! Whon n team Is trying to mnko
BBS ton yards In four downs nnd finds
BflBjj It ciulto Impossible to mnko nearly
BBBJ ten yards In threo downs, they
BflBj) "punt" on the fourth down. That
BflflJ Is, they kick tho ball ns far ns pos
BBflj . ntbtn to the other side and then
BflBj. run down to meet their opponents
HHfljj who get tho bnll. They down tho
HHV wan carrying tho ball nnd then
HHHj; "Una up" on scrlmmngo nnd tho
BBB atiln In nosstisalon of the ball then
HHH tries four times to muku ten yards, I
BBflj Mid, so on, unlit n touchdown, nj
BBS! place kick, n safely or tlmo Is up,
BflBj calling for thu end of n first, soo-
HHH ond, third or fourth quarter. Tho
HHHj tlmo of each uunrter Is fifteen win-
BBS ules, unless otherwlsu agreed by
BHH tho captains of tho toams.
BHH Ily ft louohdowu wo mean thu
BBS tenia In possession of the ball car-
BBs rylng It over their opponent's goal
BBS llnu. This counts six points, utter
BBj which tho ball Is carried back to
BBj tho twonty-flvo-yiird llnu, from
BBJ which tho scoring team has a free
BBJ chnnco to kick thu hall between tho
BBJ two uprights nnd over tho crossbar.
BBJ This done counts one additional
BBJ lly iv placu kick wo menu kicking
Bfl tho ball from tho fluid of piny oor
Bfl tho crossbar of tho opponent's goal
Bfl ilu uny way except by n punt or u
Bfl klckofr. This ptuuo kick or goal
Bfl from the fluid counts threw points.
Bfl And by n safety wo menu forcing
BK tho team holding the bnll over Its
Bfl own gonlllne. This counts two
Bfl points. To suiumurliu tho points
Bfl u touchdown counts six points, n
BB goal from u touchdown ono point,
BBJ. ,goal from fluid (place kick) thru
Bfl points, sufoty by oppononts two
Bfl points. Concerning tho men on thu
BB team, ouch has n curtain nnd dofln-
Bfl llo placo to play, Tho dlagrnm will
BBJ IlliuUratot
the opponent's nol, doing s the
nlgimts told him- going to the right
or left, clow In, fur out, etc Thus
every man on thu team knows wlmt
Is going to happen nnd where the
bnll Is going to be enrrlml, anil s
n result, the whole eleven men run
work together ns a single unit nnd
In perfect harmony to effect their
desired plans.
Theso are only n few of the many
rules nnd points thai govern n foot
ball gnme. It Is to be hoped Ihni
Iho render will, ns n result of these
few notes, become more Interested
nnd enthused oer the gnme of foot

of nil gnmes, which whon properly
played, dovelops tho player to n
greater extent than nny other ath
