CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 25.—
Harvard 'varsity eight were beaten
out by the crack Huston Athletic as
sociation crew in an exciting two
mile race on the Charles river this
afternoon. On the last half the
Harvard men made a brilliant spurt,
hitting up the stroke from thirty-six
to forty, and all but overhauled the
B. A. A. Harvard's stroke, though
the crew was practically the same
that rowed against Yale last June,
was very heavy at the catch, with
little length or drive, while the B.
A. A. rowed in splendid form, with
a long, steady stroke. The crews
were: Harvard — Ballard, stroke;
Jennings, No. 7; Stevenson, No. 6;

TWENTY-FOUR TO FOUR.
St. Paul High "Got the Four**** in
Central high school, 24; St. Paul
high school, 4.
It was a goodly throng of rooters
that flooded Athletic park in Minneap
olis yesterday afternoon to see the
meeting of the crack high school
elevens of the Twin Cities.
St. Paul made a poorer showing
than usual, though they occasionally
did some good work when they had
the ball, but their defense was weak,
and the Minneapolis backs found holes
in the line for long gains. Good tack
ling was done for both teams, Rebeth,
Shepley and Stowell distinguishing
themselves for Minneapolis and Stout
and Campbell for St. Paul.
St. Paul had the kick-off, and Hemp-
Stead caught the ball on the ten-yard
line and gained slightly. Parlln's
smashes through the line carried the
ball through to St. Paul's forty-yard
line, where Minneapolis lost it on a
fumble, but regained it almost Im
mediately on the fourth down, and
Parlin broke through from the middle
of the field for a touchdown, after
seven minutes of play. Hempstead
St. Paul kicked off and Stowell got
it. (Minneapolis failed to gain, and
Hempstead kicked. O. Burleigh fum
bled the catch and Stowell fell on the
ball. Parlin went through the line sev
eral times in succession. The ball was
pushed over for another touchdown,
and goal was kicked. St. Paul kicked
off, and soon got the ball on a fumble. .
Burleigh and Wheeler made long runs
around the end. Minneapolis got it
on an off side play, but got it again on
a kick and advanced it to the ten-yard
line, when time was called on the first
half. Score, 12 to 0 in Minneapolis' fa
Minneapolis kicked off and Wheeler
made a long gain. Burleigh broke
through, but was finely tackled by Re
beth, and St. Paul lost it on the spot
on downs. Woodworth, aided by Ed
dy, made a long run around the right
end, but St. Paul got it on downs.
Minneapolis got it on a fumble. Par
lin and Hempstead buckled the line,
till Hempstead's gory locks showed
through a Chinese puzzle of legs on
the ten-yard line. Parlin was then
pushed through for a touchdown, and
Hempstead kicked a difficult goal. St
Paul kicked off, and got the ball on a
fumble, then began working like fiends
for a touchdown. Eddy and Daven
port were hurt, but kept going. Wheel
er finally broke through from the ten
yard line for a touchdown, but Bren
nen failed on goal.
Minneapolis kicked off and St. Paul
made slow gains. Burleigh kicked,
but Rebeth blocked the ball, which
bounded back, and Parlin beat out the
twenty-two in a hot race for the ball.
Here Woodworth broke through and
crossed the line. He dropped the ball,
but Parlin and Waiste fell on it- and
scored. Woodworth kicked goal, and
time was called before the ball could
again be put in play.
The line up was as follows:

Scheme to Form an Association
With St. Paul in It.
Special to the Globe.
WINNIPEG. Man., Oct. 25.-Local
cricketers now have three important
propositions under consideration, and
it is believed all will be carried out.
The first is to get on a match with the
Australians during their tour of Great
Britain and the States; the next is a
by the local team, and the last and
most important of all Is the formation
of a Northwestern international crick
et association, including Winnipeg, St.
" Paul and Chicago clubs. It is proposed
that a week's tournament will be held
next summer at either St. Paul or
Chicago. Wlnnipeggers are making
that one- of the events of their tour.
Winnipeg will be the scene of the tour
nament every third season. It is
pointed out that Chicago, St Paul
and Winnipeg cricketers have hereto
fore been systematically Ignored In
the arrangement of international
cricket matches. Indeed Toronto and
Philadelphia have * furnished almost
their full quota of players. The pro
posed Northwest association will be
more truly representative of national
elements. It Is understood Chicago
and St. Paul cricketers have received
the proposal most favorably

A DARK HORSE FROM IOWA.
Fred Gilbert Wins the Dupont
BALTIMORE, Md.. Oct. 25.— Fred
Gilbert, a dark horse in the race, who
hails from Spirit Lake, lowa, won the
Dupont cup, the wing championship of
the world, and a fat purse in the pigeon
shooting tournament which came to
an end here this afternoon." It is said
that Gilbert never entered a tourna
ment before in his life, but he shot like
a veteran, thus repeating the perform
ance of John G. Messner, of Pittsburg,
who won the grand American handicap
of 1895, although it was his first tourna
ment. McAlester, the well-known
wing shot, who formerly lived In Phil
adelphia, but now lives in Baltimore,
was Gilbert's most dangerous competi
tor, as no others than these two killed
twenty-five straight birds.
When the shooters left off last night
twelve of them had killed eleven
straight birds each, and as many more
had bagged ten. This morning it was
announced that only those who had
killed ten birds would shoot, unless It
happened that all missed three birds,
when the tail enders might try it again.
When each man had shot at his
twentieth bird, but four were in the
race for first money. These were Gil
bert, Coe, "Hayward" (McAlester), and
Brewer. Coe fell down on his twenty
second. Brewer hung on until his
twenty-fifth bird was released, and
banged at it with both barrels as it
sailed quietly off to the right quarter
of the field. It was such an easy one
that the crowd was disposed to guy the
captain a little for missing it, and when
he grew angry they laughed at him.
This left no one in • for first money
save "Hayward" and the smooth-faced
young man from lowa. Hayward
missed the second bird of the five that
were to decide the championship. Gil
bert went right ahead with his good
shooting, killing the five straight in
magnificent shape and landing the
trophy, the championship and the
money, amid vigorous applause. The
trophy Is a handsome silver cup on a
stand of onyx, the whole valued at
$650. "Hayward" got second money,
Wagner got third prize, and fourth
money went to Coe.

Today's Football Game Between
St. Paul and Duluth Teams.
This morning bright and early the
football men representing the Duluth

pleasure by lovers of the game.
The Duluth men", who met defeat on
the first occasion, will come down de

count for anything, the Cliff Dwellers
will score. The home men will have
an unusually strong lot of men on
the field and plenty of support in the
way of enthusiasm from the crowd that
is sure to witness the struggle.

TOO MUCH OF A STRAIN.
Traveling on a Lightning Express
Has Its Disadvantages
New York Sun.
"I cannot understand why anyone
should care to travel on a railroad
train at a greater rate of speed than
sixty miles an hour," said a Western
business man yesterday in talking
about the wonderful record made by
a New York Central train on Wednes
day. "I make a trip to New York
three or four times a year, and while I
have as much dislike to slow traveling
as anybody, I always make the jour
ney on a train scheduled to run on a
speed considerably less than a mile a
minute. It takes me a few hours long
er to cover the distance than it would
upon one of the flyers, but there Is a
feeling of greater comfort and a sense
of security that is lacking on the
Lightning limited. I have made sev
eral trips upon the fast trains, and my
experience has always been the same.
From the time the train starts until it
reaches its destination every passenger
seems to be under a nervous strain. At
every principal station watches are
pulled out and the time table is con
sulted to see if the train is making
schedule time. If the train comes to a
stop on account of some obstruction
on the road, or slackens its speed at
any point, the passengers display an ir
rltlblllty that 18 almost childish. I have
seen staid business men sitting near the
car window with watches in hand, not
ing the time between mile posts, and
in a state of high nervous tension,
wondering whether the engineer will
be able to make up the five minutes
lost on the last section of the road be
fore the next station is reached. I re
member on one occasion when coming
East on the limited being awakened
during the night just as the train
stopped at a station. I glanced out of
the window, and reading the signboard
on the platform of the station, con
sulted my watch and found that the
train was nearly six minutes late. For
some reason there was a delay in get
ting under way again, and in the mean
time I had worked myself into such a
restless condition of mind that when
the train finally started I found that
further sleep was impossible. It was
only when we reached the next station
with a minute to spare that I was able
to resume my. sleep. That was the last
time I ever traveled on a flyer over

"An excellent and never failing cure

it, says the New York Sun. I have yet

body has as yet discovered or formu
lated a reason why such a process
should bring such certain relief. Phy

the reflex action of the body brings
about a reflex action of the brain, and
I thus drives away the pain that when
adduced by nervousness, is the result
of too much going forward.

GREAT OAKS FROM ACORNS
And Great Inventions Grow From
The Railway Age.
It is Interesting to notice how small
and insignificant have been the causes
that in some instances have lead to
the Invention of devices of great use on
railways as well as In other lines of
Industry. I am led to make this re
mark by the thought that the Sams
coupler, a simple device that i- at
tracting some attention among railway
men at this time, started from a chip. j
The Inventor of the Sams Is not a
railroader by any means. He was
what is known lii the precincts he used
to haunt as a "mule peeler." That is
to say, he was a driver of a mule team.
He was engaged in this business when
he hit upon the idea embodied in the
coupler now bearing his name. He
was loading heavy mine timbers at
Aspen, Col., and in the course of the
work it was necessary to couple the
cars he was loading. The couplers In
use there were of the old link and pin
type. He found the link always needed
to be supported either by a man going
between the cars and holding It in po
sition while the coupling was made or
by some other artificial means. As he
personally was not in love with the
idea of exposing his fingers to the fre
quent opportunities for mutilation in
cident to this process, he hit upon the
plan of putting a chip under the link to
hold it in the proper position for coup
ling. This done, he could stand at a
comfortable distance and let the Im
pact of the cars do its work. The plac
ing of this chip every time was an. in
convenience that he sought to get over.
The present style of the Sams coupler
Is the ultimate result. The principal
feature in it is the projections on the
sides of the coupling pin which ■ Seat
. themselves on the upper side of the
link when it is in position and hold* it
inclined slightly upward to enter- the
mouth of the opposing bar. To use his
own words, Mr. Sams "never railroad
ed a day In his life" but he Invented a
car coupler just the same. ! :; j

Farmers in Splendid Shape in
Special to the Globe. **
ADA, Minn., Oct 25.-Reports printed
| in Duluth and elsewhere that the wheat
j crop in this section was in danger of
rum because of lack of threshing equip
ments are almost wholly untrue. It is
true, that there Is still considerable
| grain in stack, but, with another week
of fine weather, almost every straw of
- wheat in Norman county will be
threshed. The situation, however,
has resulted largely from good luck!
The crop was really about the heaviest
■ ever known here, and with ordinary
■ September and October weather not
. much more than half of it could have
been put through the threshers before
the setting in of winter. The weather
- has been the evenest ever known, and
there have scarcely been five days on
which threshing could not be done.
The result is that the grain Is nearly all
threshed, half of it is marketed and the
farmers have almost completed : their
fall plowing. : .i -..;>-.- ;-->;.>, t
Special to the Globe.
M'INTOSH, Minn., Oct. This por
tion of Polk county has harvested and
threshed the largest crop of wheat In
four years. Owing to the heaviest of
the straw the work of putting the grain
through the machines was very slow,
but thanks to the finest fall weather in
ten years there have been no delays of
consequence, and the wheat Is, with
trifling exceptions, in elevator, gran
ary and bag. The only drawback to
our farmers has been the low price of
wheat, but the yield has been so large,
often going from thirty-five to thirty
eight bushels to the acre, that there is
little cause for complaint Evidences
are already plentiful that Polk county
will gain heavily in population this fall

Remarkable Case of a Nebraska
Woman Who Loves the Bever
A remarkable case of delirium tre
mens from the use of strong coffee is
interesting the physicians of Wayne,
Neb., and vicinity, says the Chicago
Record. Mrs. H. M. Hanshaw, the pa
tient, is between 45 and 50 and is the
wife of a farmer living a short distance j
from town. For many years she has I
been addicted to the use of very strong
coffee in excessive quantities, fre
quently taking as many as a dozen \
cups at a meal. Her nervous system I
has suffered seriously as a result, and j
on several occasions she lias attempt-* '
ed to break off the habit, but without !
success. A few days ago she resolved '<
to make a last desperate effort, and for
a time managed to get along without
touching the seductive beverage. At
the end of the second day, however,
her nerves were in a state of almost
complete collapse, and in a .few hours
later an attack of what closely resem
bled delirium tremens set in. The phy-
I sician called was at first deceived by
the symptoms, but when the nature of
the case was explained to him he said
the disease was undoubtedly caused
by the sudden breaking off of the
habit. Mrs. Hanshaw's recovery is
probable, but her physicians say she
could hardly survive another attack.
They pronounce the case cne of the
most remarkable they have ever seen.

my partner came after me along the
shore. I was fifty feet out in the
stream, struggling, anl '..here wasn't
any more sign of salvation for me
than if I had been in mid-ocean.
"Down I kept going, whirled and
turned upside down and fired around

tied together, and just as I was about
to let go and be smashed on the rocks

saved me," added the Westerner, "for

They Will Be in Vogue Along
With the Revival of Louis XVI.
: If we have pretended a little wisdom
and moderation about our shoes of
late, we are promptly to give all that
up, for a characteristic of the period
of fashion Is about to reproduce its ex
treme fancifulness of footgear, and the
high heels and bebowed and rosetted
insteps of the court of Louis XVI. are,
of course, to be accepted with the rest
of its frivolities. Satin shoes with high
curved heels and tiny pointed toes will
be worn to match the gown selected,
and just on or below the instep, so lift
ed into prominence, will rest an enor
mous rosette, making the foot seem,
indeed,- only a little peeping toe below
the mountain of instep.
The fancy for red heels will be re
vived, and the long-accepted low shoe
or Oxford will have no place for dres
sy purposes. Instead, the slipper, cut
high at the sides and with loose, high
rounded tongue-piece in front to lie
over the instep will be worn, and the
old-fashioned buckles lately "waisted"
on belts, will come back to their proper
places on the bows and rosettes of the
slipper. The little slipper, cut low, and
fitting without ornament and like a
glove, will positively have to be put
away for a change of fashion. For
all-of our slippers now will seem bulky,
slenderness of ankle will thus be em
phasized and arch of foot accentuated.

these points will have things all their
