fie Champions of Eastern Indi
ana." Such Is the proud title the Rich
mond high school football team is
claiming since its victory over the
strong Rushville high school team at
Rushville yesterday by the score of
5 to 0.
The team has won honors this year
and will next year be recognized by
both Shortiidge and Manual Training
high schools of Indiauapolis, the two
schools who rather looked down on
the football team of Richmond this
3"?ar with disdain.
With no discord among the mem
bers and all working for the best in
terests of the school the team has
tarried its colors to victory, over ev
ery Indiana team it has met on the
cridiron this season. Only twice has
its colors been lowered and both of
these defeats were administered by
the strong Steele high school team of
Dayton.
Duiing the first half Richmond
could not get together and played in
apparent apathy although when their
goal line was threatened five differ
ent times during the half they stood
as a man to protect it.
In the second half Richmond play
ed a much better game although they
were not up to their usual standard.
It was in this half that the Richmond
boys worked a long forward pass
and made forty yards, but owing to
the fact that the Rushville pigskin
pushers were not up to the new rules
their referee would not permit the
gain, and the locals had to be con
tented although they were somewhat
anery at the decision. The ball was
at this time in Rushville territory and
the Richmond boys played like de
mons to score before tlie end of the
half. They worked an onside kick
wh'ch netted them thirty yards, but

Probably the mot remarkable of the '

but most of his life was spent in St. i
Petersburg. He was born in 1707 and !
died in 17S3. He was a teacher of j
great power and a most prolific writer.

Chicago, Nov. 29. Heston, of the
University of Michigan football team,
suffered a broken leg while playing
with the All-Western' Eleven against
Massillon here this afternoon. The
Massillon team won by a score of 10
to 4.
Though the All-Western players in
cluded many of the stars In the Wes
tern football firmament, the absence
of training in teamwork made the ele
ven remarkable rather as a gridiron
curiosity than as an effective fighting
machine.
The field was too soft to permit of
fast work. Massillon made the first
score on a goal drop-kicked by David
son. The All-Westerns worked hard
during the rest of the half but Massil
lon outgeneraled them and there was
no more scoring until near the middle
of the second half, when Hare, of In
diana, for the All-Westerns, kicked
goal from the 30 yard line, tieing the
Massillon team.
Hestons leg was broken in a fierce
scrimmage a few minutes later and
he was carried from the field, after
actually regaining his feet and trying
behind the new rules, called the team j to resume the game.

Richmond at this point braced and
decided that if the Rushville team
wanted to play under the old rules, it
would give it a taste of it and by a
series of short lint bucks which, in
the hands of fullback Haas, halfbacks
AllisJn and Graves, the ball was
quickly forced from the fifty yard
line to Rushville's goal line. Rush
ville at this point made a valliant ef
fort to stop Richmond's steller back
field, but was unsuccessful and half
back Graves was forced over for the
only touchdown of the game.

prevented the Cornell team from car
rying the ball over for a touchdown,
although the latter were requested to
make but three yeards and yet failed
in six tries to gain the distance and
beat Pennsylvania.
In the first half the Red and Blue
surprised her supporters by playing
the entire time in Cornell territory
( and the half ended with the ball in
Cornell's possession on their own fif
teen year line. Neither team changed
the lineup at the beginning of the sec
ond half, but Cornell showed much
better form and outplayed' the Red
and Blue eleven in every depart
ment of the game. Taking the ball at
midfield after fifteen minutes of play
in this half Cornell was able to carry
it by straight line plunging and a for
ward pass by Gibson to Pennsylva
nia's fifteen yard line.
Being on the side line Cornell was
prevented from attempting a field
goal and Jamieson tried a quarter
back forward pass, llolk-uback
caught the ball f-it fumbled, and Vara
Onman fell upon it eight yards in
front of Pennsylvania's goal posts.
Watson, who had but a few minutes
before relieved Babcock, was chosen
to carry the ball over and he took it
seven yards. With the ball on the
one yard line a score seeminely cer

but this time the Pennsylvanlas were
braced for the onslaught and they

the ball to the one yard line. Coach

j In the later years of his life he was
i totally blind. Then, and probably ear- ,
; lier, too, he carried in his memory .a i
table of the first six powers, of the j
'series of natural numbers up to a
hundred." It is related that on one oc- j
caslon two of his students attempted to j
calculate a converging series. As they '
progressed they found disagreement in i
their results. These differed by a unit j
at the fiftieth figure. The question was
referred to Euler, who decided to make J
the calculation. He did this, mentally, I
I and his result was found to be
! rect.
! It was not only In mathematics that :
Euler gave proof of a prodigious mem
ory. He was well read In general liter- j
ature and was an excellent classical '
scholar. Virgil was one of his favorite ;
writers. It is said that he knew this '
author so well that he could repeat the ;
"Aeneid" "from beginning to end with- ;
out hesitation and indicate the first ;
and last iine of every page of tlie edi
tion which he used." j
The seventeenth century furnishes
the other two instances, to which I call
especial attention. The first is that of
the Italian scholar Antonio da Marco
' Magliabechi. Magliabechi was the lit
erary prodigy of his time. - Royalty and
other distinguished personages paid
tribute to his wonderful learning. His
contemporaries have said that his
memory was so prodigious that he was ;
able to retain verbatim most of the !
contents of his "multitudinous books."
j A comparatively recent writer has
declared that Magliabechi could name
all the authors that had written upon
any 1 subject, giving the name of the
book, the words and often a page. This
Is doubtless exaggeration; but, on the
other hand, It should be remembered
that the number of books on any sub
ject were much fewer then than at the
present day. Resides thisV there are
two stories that have come down from
Magllabecbi's time to ours that give
color to its truth.. On pne occasion. a
gentleman of .Florence desired to test.
Magliabechi's memory and ascertain
for himself whether the; wonderful
stories told were truth or fiction. He
gave him a manuscript to read; then,
some days after its return, pretending
to have lost it, he asked Magliabechi to
recall it, which, it is said, he did with
remarkable' exactness.' At another timo
the grand duke of Florence asked if he
could procure a certain book for him.
Immediately came the response: "No,
sire; it is impossible. There Is but one
In the world. That Is in the grand
: seignior's library at Constantinople and
j is the seventh book , on the seventh
shelf on the right band as you go In."
The other instance In the seventeenth
century is that of the Rev. Dr. John i
Wallls. It is not, however, as a theo--;
logian that Wallis' name is enrolled in
the temple of fame, but as a mathema- '
j tician. In , mathematical history he
ranks as the greatest of Newton's Eng-M
lish precursors. He was started on his :
mathematical career by reading Ough
tred's "Clavic Mathematical . but the '
special bent of his genius came from
29. LaFayette Torricelli's writings on "The Method of
of the season Indivisibles." To this he applied the ,
Cartesian analysis and produced his ;
great work, the "Arithmetica Infinitori-
um"- "the most stimulating ma the- ;
matical work so far published in Eng
land." Here he makes the successful
attempt to solve a number of the more
to Ferrara, where he mastered theol
ogy and the different systems of phi
losophy and became proficient In Lat
in, Greek, Hebrew, Chaldee and Ara
bic. The wide range of his learning is
best illustrated in the 900 theses he
proposed as subjects of controversy at
Rome in I486. Pascal says he never
forgot anything e read. Ben Jon
son tells us that could repeat all he
had ever written and "whole books"
that he had read. The same feat, too.
is credited to Niebuhr, the historian.
It is also told of Neibuhr that in his
youth while employed In one of the
public offices of Denmark he was able
through his memory alone to complete
ly restore a book of accounts that had
been partly -destroyed. Leibnitz, like
Euler, is said to have been able to re
peat the whole of the "Aeneid."
The many stories told of Macaulay's
almost portentous memory have been
related too often to bear repetition.
Not a few of them are on seemingly
certain authority. William H. Pres
cott, who met Maeaulay about 1850,
has told us some interesting things of
his memory. I shall mention but one.
This was related to Prescott by Henry
Hallam, who said that Lord Jeffrey
had once told him "that hn vlncr trlnnnl
1 ' o -i ,
j up Maeaulay in a quotation from 'Par
adise Lost two days after Maeaulay
came to him and said, 'You will not
catch me again in the "Paradise," at
which Jeffrey opened the volume and
took him up in a great many passages
at random, in all of which he went on
correctly repeating the original. Was
it not a miraculous tour d'esprlt? Ma
eaulay does not hesitate to say now
that he thinks he could restore the first
six or seven books of the 'Paradise In
case they were lost."
There can be no doubt of the truth
of this and many of the other stories
told of Macaulay's memory. He was
a man of splendid talents. Hla knowl
edge of English history wag unsur
passed, by his contemporaries. John
William Perrln in New York Herald. !

These examples of retentive memory

that Cyrus the Great knew the names

of Sophocles, who in old age when

necessary. Ni inames derived from a

from some personal peculiarity were
tacked on to his Christian name, and
plain John became John Smith. As
