it is likely we will tell some plain

one kind and another. In all

found on sale at our store. As

deoeud upoa hi owu Initiative for bis
line of action.
Tbere re, however, one or two points
which any back will do well to keep in
mind. It hi always a good plan to try
to force the runner to tike that direc
tion that will brin bim nearest to the
Bide line, where it may be possible ei
ther to corner him or to force him out
of bounds. There is little sense in un
dertaking to tackle a runner who has
the whole field to maneuver la when
you can reduce the field by two-thirds.
Another point to be kept in mind is
that of never running at full speed at
a runner whom it is your intention to
tackle, especially when he has an op
portunity to side step or dodge you.
This side stepping Is tbe easiest thing
Imaginable where tbe tackier bears
down on his victim ut full speed. It is
frequently illustrated when ends over
run a fullback, who by a simple side
step eludes them and makes a good
run. Instead the back should run fast
toward bis opinent until be gets with
in fifteen or twenty yards of bim. when
be should slow up and get ready to re-
KHiid to dodging, which can only be
done when the back has full coutrol of
bis body. He should exercise great
care not to be fooled by some false mo
tion on tbe part of the runner. This
false motion s usually given with tbe
upper part or tue ooay ana can oniy
be detected by keeping a close watch
on tbe hips, which will always give
away tbe real tendency of the body.
Hacks frequently loaf while going
back to their positions. This Is nil
wrong. They should le either on the
line or away back of it, with as little
time as possible wasted in getting into

If the kleker is a good one and bus
the winu at bis back they should of
course play farther back than if be is
a ioor kicker and has a stiff wind
against him. The thing to be avoided
is the danger of playing too far back.
Thi is a very common fault among
novices, who dread having the ball
kicked over their beads.

"Hunting de luxe" is the new and
fashionable pastime. You may be a
huntsman, but If you are not a "de

those who wear two suits of clothes a

In some Instances these up to date
Nimrods would go by auto to points
where deer were plentiful and leave
the machines in order to penetrate

They shot several deer, however,
without leaving the auto, bringing
down the animals as they would dash
across a road in front of the auto.
Three autos were used by the party
in question. One of the machines was
devoted to carrying a road building
equipment, consisting of block and
tackle, 400 feet of rope, four axes, a
shovel, crowbars, mattock, etc., togeth
er with a couple of extra spring. This
machine was dubbed the "wrecking

machines were four silk tents, an alu

hat "ishe provides, for I am not goln
to waste any time on food while you
are here. I want to spend every uiiu
ute enjoying you,( for we may never
be all together agaiu." So we had an
abundance of simple food and were
perfectly happy In seeing each other.
We four have never been together
again, and It is probable that we shall
never have such another opportunity,
but we look back on those two days
and feel that we have had one perfect
vlsd. The guest who Is worthy of be
ing entertained at all comes to see you
not to eat your food or to upset your
ordinary ways of life. The tendencv
is to make it all too much a matter of
nhow rather than of friendship.
It Js no wonder that our maids do
not receive the announcement of ap
proaching compauy with enthusiasm.
Why, indeed, should they? All th
truuble falls to their share and none of
'.he enjoyment. Moreover, much of the
trouble is quite unnecessary. I know
a family where all the "waiting on
table" ordinarily required of the on
maid is to remove the dishes between
the roast and the dessert, with no mor?
uniform than a clean apron over her
calico dress; but. when there is com
pany, leho!d u startling change! The
usual plain dinner of two courses is
i'ono:i by the addition of som
saiaa and coffee, and the maid, hustled
iuto some sort of black garments, has
to cook the meal and also serve it as
if she were "second girl" Instead of
"general housework." Is it any won
der that company U not considered an
unmlied blessing in that klt4jen? -
It is delightful to have our meals
nicely Berved by a well trained wait
ress, but if we are not accustomed to
o doing every day any departure from
our usual methods Is sure to prove un
satisfactory. It is largely our own
fault if we make hospitality a burden
to ourselves and others. It ought to be
the source of the fairest pleasure.
