Few people have any Idea of the
•Bormous expense entailed in putting
% college football eleven on the Held
Hid maintaining It, says tho New York
World, Those who base their esti
mates on seeing the immense crowds of
80,000 and more pouring Into the great
fields to Bee the big games imagine the
mason yields a huge profit. When
Tale plays Princeton or Harvard, the
crimson meets Pennsylvania, and Mich
igan struggles with Chicago, most of
tho spectators probably wonder what
becomes of tho Immense financial re
turns, for, eta a rule, a price as high is
charged for football seats as It costs
to go to the best of the theaters.
Considering that players give their
services, it would seem a reasonable
theory that after all expenses are paid
there should still be an enormous prof-
It. It might be but for the surprising
outlay. Football does yield a profit at
all the big colleges, but nothing like
iwnat would be imagined. It is the
money maker of the athletic family,
bat costs' the most to keep. It sup
ports Itself, rowing, hockey, lacrosse,
■wiinming and Indoor athletics and lets
baseball work for Itself.
All the children of the backbone of
college sport are expensive and eat a
largo portion of father football's in
come, especially his Neptunlc daugh
ters the Misses Crew, but the old
nan himself is the most extravagant.
The outlay has begun, and the next
few weeks will see money lavished on
the greatest of college games In a man-
Mr to stagger the credulity of those
who have not examined Into the figures
and do not realise what the sport costs
At Yale last year It cost $27,000 to
pay the running expenses, such as ho
tel bills, railroad fare, training table
and football equipment, and when to
this la added the salaries of the coaches
aad cost of improvements to the ath
letic plant It is probable that the grid-
Iron bill was as much as President
Roosevelt receives for his year's sal
ary. And Yale Is only one of a dozen
big colleges where money is poured out
Bke water. No team can have a win
ner without this outlay. The three big
winners last year were Yale, Pennsyl
vania and Michigan.
This year, in addition to having the
usual high priced coaching system,
with Byron Dlcksou in charge, th«
Quakers have the services of the high
est priced trainer in the business, Mike
Uurphy, formerly of Yale, who is ad
mittedly the greatest developer of nth
letic talent the United States has ever
Been. Murphy is to look after the base
ball and track team as well as the
gridiron stars. For this he will gel
15,000 a year, and for signing the con
tracts that took him from Yale to Pent?
lie was made a present of a house.
Yost of Michigan certainly does not
make less than $5,000 yearly out of
football. Harvard has been equally
lavish In the matter of outlay, and this
year, in the hope of having her football
fortunes retrieved, is paying the big
gest salary ever given to a coach—s7,
---000. This will go to Bill Reid, captaiu
of the crimson team that beat Yale,
Considering he will only work three
k months, It is pay at the rate of 128,000
% • year— than any professor in the
V college or even its president gets.
ff Harvard and Pennsylvania alike
bave been under extraordinary ex
penses during the last two years for
the establishment of their athletic
fields. The stadium at Cambridge ami
the structures at Franklin field, Phila
delphia, are concededly the finest of
their kind In existence, and each cost
la the neighborhood of half a million
In examining into the things foi
which money is expended the list fur
■lshed by Yale last year Is fairly
typical. This shows that railroad
tare for the season cost $3,330; hotels
and meals, $5,300; merchandise and

Harvard are especially likely to plunge !

anxious to make up for their defeat at
Ibejuinds and feet of Yale and are

i the Earl of Etchwoth. ■• An ancestor—
a cavalier and a stanch royalist—came
to America in Cromwell's time, and
Ws grandson was a noted Tory during
the Revolution. Boom yean ago I
visited London and sent my card to tbe
present earl, who invited dm to visit
Etchwoth house, the family Boat We
arrived there in time for dinner and
Fpent a part of the evening examining
the house and many heirlooms It con
tained. This finished, we sat by the
great fireplace, built centuries ago, and
my host told me stories and legends of
I wont to my room with my head full
of visions of different generations pass
ing and repasslng as In a panorama.
The house had never been changed into
a modern abode, and my only light was
•i candle. While undressing I noticed
a portrait hanging on the wall whose
white wig, high collared red coat, with
largo buttons, and ruffled shirt bosom
marked the original for the period of
George 111. I noticed him especially
for the benevolent expression of his

face, and since he bore a strong family
resemblance I did not doubt that he

Placing the candle on a table beside
the bed—the candlestick, of heavy sil
ver, had lighted people to bed 200 or
more years before—l put the extin
guisher over It, shut my eyes and went
I soon awoke with one of those in
describable sensations, the only definite
thing about which is a certainty of
some cause for wakefulness. I lighted
my candle and, lying back on my pil
low, found myself facing the picture
of the benevolent gentleman that had
attracted my attention.
I started up in astonishment. Through
this man who had lived from one to
two hundred years ago there seemed to
be looking from the background the
portrait of one in the costume of either
Charles 11, or James 11. At any rate,
he wore the curls and lace collar of
that period. What a face! Never have
I seen such malevolence combined with
■in h despair. I thought of Stevenson's
"Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr.
Hide." the good and the bad in one
body. There were the features of be
nevolence and malevolence, the one
locking through the other, though the
former seemed to have mastered the
latter. I could not bear the thought of
'■""mining under the gaze of that horri
ble face. I dared not put out the can
die, for I dreaded the darkness more
than the light; so, getting out of bed, I
placed the candle on a dresser where it
would not shine so fully on the picture.
While returning to my bed I noticed
that the features of the evil face were |
and before I lay down the good had
completely annihilated the evil.
An hour passed, during which I occa
sionally cast furtive glances at the por
trait, dreading the return of the fiend
face. But there was no return, and at
last I fell asleep. I awoke again, bow
over. In a few hours. The candle was
Bickering in the socket. Being thirsty,
I got up to get a drink of water before
the candle should go out. Turning to
K'J back to bed. I cast a glance at the
portrait. There again was the face I
1 must have started and caused a dis
turbance of the air sufficient to extin
guish the flickering candle. At any
rate it flared and went out, and I dash
mi for the bed, climbed Into it and bu
rled my head ■ under the clothes, my
heart beating like a triphammer. An
other hour of wakefulness, then slum-
or relieved mo of the dreadful feeling
that that evil face was looking at me.
In the morning ray chamber door was
thrown open, and my host entered to
announce that breakfast was waiting,
and wo had scarcely time to eat it and
roach our train to London. My first
thought was of the portrait. I looked
at It, and there, as I had seen the night
before, were the two faces in one.
"Explain that," I said, pointing.
The earl looked at it, surprised.
"I beg a thousand pardons," he said,
"for putting you in a room with that
picture. When last here I gave an
order for Its removal, but I see the
order lias not been obeyed. Did It
trouble you in the night?"
LTrorjile me? I should say it did!"
"Come, get your clothes on, and at
breakfast I'll tell you about it."
This is the story of the picture:
When the Duke of Monmouth,
Charles ll.'o natural son, returned
from the Netherlands to dispute the
throne with James 11. the Earl of Etch
woth was deep in the plot. Ills am
bltton was fired at the prospect of hav
ing been one of the principal adherents
of a king In adversity, and ho staked
all on the result. When Monmouth was
defeated at Ledgeinoor and executed
lon the was one of those whom was
eated at I^?dgeuioor and executed
earl was ono of those whom Jef
fries tried and condemned. The fall
ure of the part's plans and the result
embittered him and made a devil of
him. The night before his execution
an artist visited him In prison and,
struck by his expression, hurried to his
studio to put it on canvas. The picture
eventually passed Into the Etohwoth
family, but was kept In a garret.
Three-quarters of a century later, when
a canvas was wanted for a portrait for
the Incumbent of the title at that
time—the flower of them all— the one
that had been used in the case of the
condemned earl was brought from the
garret and turned to account. Indeed,
the dirt had obscured the painting, and
the artist did not know of its existence,
Ibo he painted over It. At the end of
I another three-quarters of a century
the picture was cleaned, with the re
• volt of bringing ont the two faces.
