In srit of the. -many precautions ma2e
ast fall, to the effect that football -would
ever again prove popular, that atnleLc
iport has appeared on the Held this season.
flth. all of Its former vigor, and bids fair
to fce as popular with tha general public
as before. Although football Is recognized
as primarily" a college same. It has come to
claim La Its season much the attention of
the sport-loving public that baseball dots.
Last year was perhaps the most . success
ful season from a financial standpoint
which football manage-3 throughout the
country have experienced, but owing to the
many quarrels which were the outcome of
the games played by the Eastern teams,
and the large number of casualties result
ing from the gamc3 played In all parts of
the country. It was the general opinion
that the frame had passed Its prime. Ea
. peclally In the West did the future of the
j rport seem doubtful owing. to the action of
the College Presidents Association, in
which so many restrictions were made on
m the game that it would have been prac
tically an entirely new game which the
teams would have played. The rough play
had increased to such an extent that
scarcely a game was ever played without
from two to five of the players being car-
ried from the flelJ, more or less seriously
' Injured, and the "slugging" abilities of the
members of the teams came to be reckoned
s among the good qualities.
The new lease of life which has been
granted to the game may therefore be at-
1 tribute! to the fact that new rules have
been formulated which will eliminate all
rough play from the game and therefore
reduce -the danger to life and limb. Under
new rules the play will be more open, al
lowing more opportunity for long runs, and
similar plays which increase the beauty of
the game to the spectators. There are
three sets of rules from which football
teams may chcose -thi3 season, and which
may also cause some confusion, but it will
certainly permit the game to bo played In
a manner to which even the most squeam-
. Ish faculty cannot object. The olScial foot
ball rules' for 1S35 are the same rules aa
those recommended by the rules com
mittee, consisting of Alexander Moffat,
W. A. Urooks, John, ,C Bell, Paul
J. Dashlell and Walter Camp. -These
rules have been amended by a Yala ?.nJ
Princeton alliance, and also by Harvard,
Pennsylvania and Cornell, forming three
distinct sets of rules. One of the amend
ments of the Harvard-Pennsylvanla-Cornell
leagues provides for two umpires, a referee
and a lineman. Tills increase in the num-
. ber of officers in the game will decrease
the chance for rough or unfair play, and
will eliminate all "slugging." A Yale
Princeton amendment provides that 4,ln
scrimmage not mere than one man shall
. start forward before the ball Is In play.
Hot more than three men shall group them
selves at a point behind the line of scrim
mage before the ball is in play. Seven men
or more shall be on the line of scrimmage
until th ball is in play, except that the
man playing the position of either end
rusher may drop back, provided .he does
not pass Inside the position occupied by
, the man playing adjacent tackle before th
ball is put in play." This will do away
with all the momentum mass' plays, in
which most of the serious accidents oc
curred. There aro other amendments which
wiU-twfTfc' the play to ome extent, but
Otherwise tho rules are little changed from
mose oi ia?t season. -The
situation in the East which eaVe
rise to the amendments to the rules Is nor
altogether satisfactory to football enthus
iasts. Under the present conditions there
can be no- game this s-soson between Yale
and Harvard teams, nor between Prince-
ton and Pennsylvania. Harvard was de
feated, last year by Yale in a game which
for Its "dirty" playing was unexeelled.
At the close of the game Harvard gradu
ates openly charged the Yale players with
slugging." and vther unfair playing, which
the Yale graduates resented, demanding an
apology. This was not forthcoming and the
result is a breach between the two colleger
and a match which has always excited
national interest will be prevented. Llke-
wise, the Princeton-Pennsylvania game,
in which Princeton came off second best.
The game had fcten a hard fought one,
and "slugging" indylged In by the members
of both teams . to a largo extent. As' a
result of the deserved criticism of the
game, the Princeton faculty decreed that
no more games should be played with
Pennsylvania, as the rivalry between the
teams -was too great. The Yale-Princeton
and the Harvard-Pennsylvania-Cornell
leagues are the outcome of th?s4 difter
ceces. Put frtemis of Yala and Harvard
are yet hopeful of patching up the'ir quar
rels in time for a great match game to be
arranged between them.
THE WESTERN" TEAMS.
All of the Western teams report that
prospects were never better. The team
which is to represent the University of
Michigan has trained at Omena, a Mich
igan summer resort, but Is now at.yrork;
at the university grounds. For a time" the
prospects at the University of Illinois
- were not so promising on account of an
apparent lack of material. It was reported
that there were plenty of big men in the
school, but that they all lacked nerve to
enter the garra The team is now prac
ticing hail daily. The Chicago University
team promises to exceed expectations this
season, opening the season with a defeat
of (he great Chicago Athletic Club's team.
The players at the University cf Wiscon
sin seem to he somewhat slow about get
ting into playing trim, but the managers
there state that Wisconsin will be fully
prepared to sustain the excellent reputation
which was made by her last season.
The local football enthusiasts will be fur-
wished with numerous exhibitions of the
-t, and the present Indications seem to
-na.t it win dp or the highest quality.
At least three local teams will be in the
f.eld a3 champions in their Individual
classes. A team has been organized in the
Indianapolis Light Artlller, another is com-
fosrd Of the members of the Indianapolis
ligh School, and Putler University prom
ises to thow up a team that will be able
to compete with any college team in the
West. Each of these organizations will
play a series of games in this c!ty, which
means that at lea?t one exhibition each
week, until Thanksgiving day may be wit
nessed in this city. Such teams as those
from the ChIego Athletic Cub. the Louis
vine, Cincinnati and St. Louis Athletic
Clubs, will be brought here by the Artillery
team, while representative college and high
school ' teams will come here to compete
with the teams or Uutler and the Hieh
Schoo!. Both the Artillerv and th rfnHAr-
teams will bet coached Dy Eastern foot
ball men, which means that the style of
play put up by them will be patterned
closely arter that or Kastern teams.
THE ARTILLERY TEAM.
At the rresent time the Artillery team
presents the most promising appearance.
There are several candidates for every
position on the team, and every man is
working hard to secure a place. Manager

er, and states that before the week is
finished one will be cn the ground, al
though he does not desire to make known
the name as yet. Hal Joss, formerly a
member of the University of Michigan
team. Is captain, and has been putting
the men through the preliminary work for
several weeks. The artillerymen know
what hard work means, and every
one Is expecting to go into regular
training as soon as a professional
coacher arrives to take them In charge. A
heavy team will be secured, no matter
which of the candidates are the successful
ones. Losse and Powell are trying for the
position of center, and in either -man a
solid center would be secured. Losse has
had some experience, which gives him a
little the advantage, although Powell Is a
strong and nervy player, and with the
proper coaching would be able to fill the
position. For guards, ho better than John
son and Railsback can be found. Both are
heavy weights, and will form such a sup
port for tho center that it will bo almost
impregnable." Both played on the team
last year, and the wonderful work of
"IJaby" Itailsback was the wonder of all
who witnessed him play Jo?s will rlay
one tackle, and Parker, who played a fine
game with the High School team last sea
son, will strengthen the line In the same
position. The ends of the line will be
looked after by Harry Olln and Cali a, both
quick men to get down the field, and sure
tacklers. Swan and Murbarger are candi
dates for the position of quarter back, and
play It equally well. Somerville, formerly
of Uutler, and Patterson, of Purdue, will
look after the speed work behind the line,
and two more reliable half backs could not
be found. Scott, who played full back on
the University of Illinois and later at But
ler, will occupy that position with the Ar
tillery team. He is a sure tackier and hits
the line with telling effect.
Tho. team may play several exhibition
games here with Butler In a short time.
So far games have been fixed with , the
team from the University of Chicago, in
thi city, Nov. 9. and with the Louisville
Athletic Club, at Louisville. Nov.' 16. On
either the 11th or 17th of this month they
will play the team of the Cincinnati Ath
letic Club, at Cincinnati. Other games are
being arranged with " Chicago Athletic
Club and several of the larger college
.teams. The Artillery team will play the
Thanksgiving day game here, as they have
had an option on the ball park since last
year. With what team the exhibition game
will be played has not yet been settled.
BUTLER 3 MAKEUP.
J. Marshall Flint, formerly a half back on
the Princeton; team, 'has the Butler, eleven
in charge and although-tho material-is
not tho best he feels that he can make a
winning team out of it. It will be remem
bered that when Mr. Flint took charge
of the Butler team last season it looked
as if nothing could be made of It, but ,lt
won from every team with which dVplayed
with the exception of Purdue and Would
probably have won that game had it not
been played to early In the season'. Either
Wright or Osborn will play center for
the team. Wright seems to be the more
available man wing to weight and
strength. Osborn was formerly on the De
Pauw team and will play a guard if not
center. Loots Clymer and Olive are also
candidates for the position of guard, with
Loop making the best showing for the
position. Captain Lister, a player of four
years' experience, will play his old posi
tion of tackle, for which he Is noted
throughout the State. Robin?on or Smith
will play the other tackle. Loop, Roberts
and Cunningham are trying for ends, but
none of them have the qualifications for
the position. Clark, Smith and Stevenson
are candidates for quarter. Clark has had
several years' experience and plays a
nervy game, giving him the advantage in
the race. The team is weak behind the
line. Ludlow, Lamkrn and Blount are try
ing for halves, but all are too light. Lud
low is a new man, but shows signs of
becoming-a good ground gainer under prop
er coaching. Rhinehard has no opponents
for the position of full back. He played
the same position with the High School
last year and proved to be a sure tackier
and goal kicker. The team will present a
much more encouraging appearance after
a week's work under coacher Flint a.nd
will cpen the season to-morrow at Nobles
vllle. It plays the University of
Illinois, at Champaign, Oct. 19: Wabash,
here, Oct. Vi; Miami University, here. Nov.
9. and DePauw, here, Nov. 23. Several
other games are being arranged. There is
some question as to whether the Butler
team will play the Artillery team, owing to
the fierce battle which those teams fought
on the gridiron last Thanksgiving, but
friend3 of both are attempting to arrange
-The "High School team, which holds the
lnterscholastic championship of the State,
has been slow In organizing, owing to some
petty Jealousies, but Manager Bales an
nounces that the team is now working un
der Capt. Adolph Schleicher. Jr.. and will
be ready to open the season this week. Nat
Owings, 'of last year's Butler team, and a
tackle of ability, has been engaged to
coach the team. The team is at present
composed of the following men: Smith,
center: Curtis and Jordan, new men, but
with proper qualifications for successful
players, guards; Kettenbach and Schleicher,
of last year's team, tackles; Mackintosh
and Kerr, ends; Krauss, quarter back;
Camp and Holliday, of last year's team,
half backs, and Booz. full back.
The team has arranged the following
games, with others in prospect: Franklin
High School, at Franklin, Oct. 12; Nobles

several games for Friday afternoon.
FASHIONS OF THE DAY.
Picturesque Gowns nnd Accessories
the Correct Thing.
Perhaps the most important feature of
the newly imported gownscertainly im
portant in the way of comfort is the com
plete absence of haircloth from all cos
tumes, except those tailor-built, making the
skirts so much less burdensome to bear.
The skirts are even wider than during
the season Just passed; but the fullness is
now all drawn Into the innumerable godets
at the back, and the front falls without
fold3. Tiny gores at either side. Just be
low the belt, accomplish a very snug fit
over the hips, making a good line aided to
shape by a fine whalebone to the Hare" at
the foot, the flare being within, the bind
ing, and a narrow canvas facing.. ,
The sleeves of the fail frock3'are some
what smaller, but the more In evidence
than ever, for now they ar gored and
draped and trimmed, not Infrequently each
seam being covered by a narrow line of
Jet or other passementerie.
A special feature of street gownsjs the
heightened collar, t A band of ribbon and
it must be of rich and heavy quality
about five inches in width, without folds
or. wrinkle, forms a strikingly smart stock.
At the back is a coquettish bow, and in
front the broad band covers the throat to
the very chin. At first thought you would
fancy this to be the mo3t grotesque, but,
on the contrary, it is very quaint and
House dresses go to the other extreme,
having no collars at all. A small yoke cf
hlack or white lace, about three inches
deep, I should say, 13 set in the top of the
body and fastens Just above the collar
bone, leaving all the throat bare. As the
majority of women have good enough necks.
If the collar bone can be got out cf sight,
this fashion will undoubtedly find favor, for
it Is not a bit comfortable to have one's
throat all trussed up when otherwise com
fortably gowned for the house. Moreover,
necklaces are again in fashion, and Pari
siennea are wearing ropes of Roman pearls
twisted about the throat, excellently con
cealing an ugly neck and enhancing the
beauty of a pretty one. And speaking of
pearls reminds me that I saw Mrs. Cora
Urquhart Potter wearing a very chic little
French frocks at luncheon, the other day,
which is fuch a pretty pattern of house
toilette that 1 will venture to describe it.
It was of lustrous black surah satin, with
plain, full skirt, the bodice ending Just be
low the waistband, where It fitted snuglv
all about like a middy's coat. The top of
the body had a yoke of heavy cream
guipure, and beneath this, both back and
front, black net, jetted, was gracefully
draped. The sleeves were formed of a big
satin puff r.r.d a gauntlet of jetted lace,
ending in a frill of lace, half concealing
the hand. The puffs were gored and the
seams outlined in jet. The only ornament
worn v.a3 a very beautiful pearl necklace.
One of Mrs. Potter's most fetching Marie
Antoinette gowns is of brown and blue
brocade, also illustrating a revived mode
the petticoat and redingote. The side
drapery is very buffant. with steel-ribbed
paniers sewed into the lining of the petti
coat, and the skirt Is trimmed with a row
of blue ribbon rosettes, fluttering from
waist to knee. The hat worn with this
costume is of the steeplechase shape, with
brown brim and crown, and three nodding
plumes In front, all white but the tips,
which are a sky blue, and blue rosettes.
Identical with1 those on the skirt, fasten
thee plumes te the crown.
The new hats are all huge, save the little
turblns that are tilted low down on the
brow; but th large picture hats painted
by Rembrandt and Gainsborough are the
vogue. The brims are bent In all manner
of pictureique shapes, and ombre ribbons
and plume; load the crowns.
For the , theater and opera the Marie
Antoinette hoods are worn. They are very
larg and ide so that they will not muss
the hair, and are kept in shape by a clr
clette jr narrow whalebone. Made of gray
plush or velvet and lined with bright satins
they add piquancy to a pretty face, and
never fall to ve becoming. Tne cape cf
Ihe hood falls over the shoulders, and In
mild weather m&kes a sufficient wrap.
A single jeweled pin fastens the hood to
THE G. A. R. TRIP SOUTH
ItEKIMSCEXCES AT a recent
MEETIXG OF THOMAS POST.
Recorder Shilling Tells Hovr He
Found III Jlrotlier'a Grave Capt.
There was not a large number at the
last meeting of Thomas Grand Army Post,
hut if the members had known that sev
eral comrades would be telling their experi
ences and impressions during the recent
visit to Chlckamauga and other localities
In the arena of the war, there would have
been a large attendance. It was not ex
pected; indeed, the commander was about
to close the meeting, when Recorder Shill
ing rose and said that , he desired to tell
his experience at iMurfreesboro. He began
by saying that for more than thirty years
he had desired to locate the resting place
of his brother, who was mortally wounded
at Stone River. The comrade proceeded.
In part, as follows: e
"My brother and I were members of the
same regiment, and were doing picket duty
on the morning of Dec. 31, 1SI12. We were
of McCook's command, and were stationed
on his right. This was his weakest point,
and shortly before daybreak wo were at
tacked by the rebel forces under Pat Cle
burne. My brother was fifteen or twenty
feet from me, and fell mortally wounded. I
was' unable to get to him, and was driven
back with our company. After the battle
was over I could not find him on the battle
field or amongst the wounded in the field
hospitals, and I knew he had been captured.
I heard nothing of him until after the
rebel3 evacuated Murfreesboro, when I
learned he was in a hospital in that place.
I obtained permission to nurse him, and
stayed in the hospital until his death. Be
ing unable to send his remains to the
North, I buried him in the Presbyterian
cemetery at Murfreesboro. I took the pre
caution to mark his grave with a cedar
slab. Inscribing the date of his death, his
name and the number of his. regiment. Dur
ing the last thirty-two years it has been
my great desire to know . that he was Tiot
burled In an unknown grave. When the
National Cemetery was opened I knew he
would be removed to the government offi
cials, and that if they did hot know his
name they would describe the location of
the grave from which he was taken and the
number of the new grave. I did not sup
pose the cedar slab I had placed at his
head thirty-two years ago would be pre
served, but when I went to the cemetery
and looked over the record almost the first
name I saw was hl3. I got the number of
his grave and went to it without much
trouble. On a beautiful tombstone was the
same inscription I had placad on the ceaar
Slab. The National Cemetery is in one of the
most beautiful spots I have ever sotn, and
the stones are all fine marble. Some one
inquired If I would remove my brother
North. I replied that I would not, as I
considered it a great honor for him to He
In that beautiful place, so near the soot
where he fell.
FINDING HIS BROTHER'S GRAVE.
T want to mention especially the cordial
way In which we were treated. Tho citi
zens of Murfreesboro got up a white satin
badge. It had a picture o a globe sur
mounted with the 'national flag with the
words, 'Our Country' printed on the globe.
Below, were the words, 'We are Brothers.'
Johnny and Yank.' It was too late when
wo arrive for us to try to look through
the cemetery and we went out and mingled
with the citizens. I learned there was no
Grand Army post, and Inquired if there was
aa Odd Fellows' lodge. I was Informed
that there was by a Colonel Brown, who
also told me the lodge meeting was then
in session.. X did not have a card, but
he took me to the lodge room and in
troduced me to the city marshal, a Mr.
Maney.-who afterwards introduced me.
to very one in the room. H
was a Jovial fellow and haU bantering
words fer every one. He would say:
'Yank, here is a Johnny you tried to
get,' or 'Johnny, here is a Yank you tried
to shoot. One rime he said: 'Yank, here
Is another Johnny; you shot his leg off.'
I told-him I was there hunting my broth
er's grave. He said he had opened a street
through the old Presbyterian graveyard a
short time before and that if I would call
at his otflco the next morning he might
find something on his records that would
aid me. After I left he told the -postmaster,
Mr. J. H. Chritchlow, the object of
my search. We went to the cemetery at
3 o'clock the next morning and while there
located my brother's grave. When I re
turned for breakfast I found a card Mr.
Critchlow . had left during my absence,
stating, that if I would call on him he
could tell me something that would help
me in my search. I called on him and in
formed him that I had already found my
brother's grave. He knew the number of
our regiment, the Thirty-ninth
Indiana, and took me to the store
room that had been the hospital In which
my brother died. It seemed as if they,
could not do too much for us. There was
no ill feeling in any way, shape or form.
I told them I did not care anything about
their religion or politics and that all I
cared to know was that they were for
one country and one flag. They stated
that that was their sentiment. I know
going down there did me good and I am
satisfied our going did them good. I shall
always have different feelings regarding
the men who fought on the other side."
CAPT. ARMSTRONG'S EXPERIENCE.
T will tell my exeperience at .Chlcka
mauga at a Confederate reunion," said
Capt. W. H. Armstrong. He went on to
say that with S. Sheerin, a Logansport
Judge and another Hoosier, he attended
a Confederate reunion at the Brotherton
House on the battlefield. There were two
or three thousand people there, Confeder
ate veterans, their wives, sons and daugh
ters. They came from the country in all
sorts of conveyances. It was generally a
country crowd. "We went about among
them telling them that we were the other
fellows," said Captain Armstrong. "They
were -a little distant for the most part
as if they did not quite know about us.
After a while a young man, a representa
tivetxf the Atlanta Constitution, was called
upon to make an opening address to give
the visiting ex-Confederates a welcome.
He made a rattling good speech. 'It is
not a question now,' he paid, 'whether
you were right when you fought on this
ground in 1SC3. We'll say you were right;
we'll say you and my father were beaten
because the North had the most men;
but I will say this, and I believe all of
you feel it, It was a good thing that you
were beaten. There Is room for but one
government on this continent and the one
we have Is the best.'
T cannot give you anything like his
language, but he went on largely in this
style. The ex-Confederates and their sons
stared at him, but mads no sign of dis
approval. When he closed there would
have been no applause if us four had not
begun It. We started It in good earnest
and the crowd followed. To one old man I
said:- 'I was a federal soldier and you
were a Confederate soldier.' 'How do you
know that I was in the rebel army? ho
demanded. 'Know it, why you have the
bearing of an old soldier; confess now that
you can show scars of buttle. And he
did show the scars. We talked a bit and
as I turned to go I said: 'Lot us shake,'
and we did. Thus we spent, an hour
mingling with the crowd. All were court
eous, but all were not cordial. As we
passed a seat on which were several
women, a tall and graceful girl stood up
and with a not ungracious toss of the
head. said, not for our hearing: 'I like the
old Confeds best. I did hear, and lifting
my hat, I said: 'So do I.' As we came
away, a man who had fought at Chlcka
mauga was proving that it was not a
drawn battle. These people were from
the country where the spirit of the new
South, which is found in all the cities, has
not reached. But It will come. The words
of Lincoln will come- true; our better
natures will triumph."
Commander Merrineld said that the cor
diality of the people of Louisville had so
touched his heart that he sought to ex
press his feeling in verses. He has written
a song, which can be sung to the air of
"John Brown's Body," two stanzas of which
"Shout aloud hosannah to the glory of the

"They made us promise to let them knew

Another comrade told of the good will
shown by several brothers and sons of ex
Confederates who live near the Chlcka
mauga field. "I have Northern neighbors,"
said one. "and they are the best men I
know." "I lost two brothers In the Con
federal army," said another, who was a
boy of twelve, living within a few miles of
the fieia when Chlckamauga was fought.
"While I shall never cease to revere their
devotion to the Southern cause, I believe
that it is far better for me and my children
that things are as they are. I have no ill
will toward Northern men. I tell my young
boys that they are to love the flag of the
Republic." Thus he talked as we rode along
the line marked by the monuments on that
historic field. "Best thing that could have
happened to my family," said another; "My
father had twenty negroes, and it kept us
poor and in debt to take care of them."
"I was .not able to (go to Chlckamauga

TUB FEACIIBLOAV VASE.
What Gruelle Says of It In Ills Ilook
on the Wnlters Collection.
The following article on "The Peachblow
Vase," in the W. T. Walters art collection
in this city, is reprinted from "Notes.
Critical and Biographical, by R. B. Gru
elle, Collection of W. T. Valters"-evldent-ly
an authorized .publication in which it is
chapter 13. The writer, it will be observed,
is careful not to say that the "peachbloom"
vase, of which so much was said some
years ago In the rress, is in the Walter's
collection, but It is clearly implied that it
is. There are manv peachbloom vases in
the collection, ,but "this little vase," it is
urged, has for the knowing a "message,"
and a value which would make it cheap at
$13,0CO, or any price up to "a million dol
lars," "In a specil case in the oriental gal
lery," says- the article, "will be seen a
number of fine specimens of this variety
of porcelain, but once let your eye feast
on the exquisite simplicity of this vase,"
etc. The word "this" is evidently meant
to be significant. -It is'plalnly claimed for
the Walters collection that.it possesses a
unique specimen, and the reader is led to
infer that it is the one that made so much
noise and so mysteriously disappeared a
few years ago. - - '
"Some years ago th6 world was startled
by the news that a small vase, the prop
erty of a lady of wealth, had been disposed
of at an enormous price. The Incident was
glibly commented "upon by those self-constituted
learned men who dispose of things
beautiful, born of the celestial spheres,
with the same quill with which they deal
out Intellectual beatitudes on pork or base
ball. For them this little vase will have
no message. Its proportions are entirely
too diminutive, but if all the beautiful
thoughts, oil the lovely hues in fact, if
all the beauty of the art and nature of the
land of the celestial were distilled and re
fined into some material and shaped Into
one object, that object might be the peach
bloom vase. It is the perfect flowering of
hundreds of years of oriental art, the
culmination of centuries of the most sacred
devotion to the shrine of beauty. It is a
gem that needs no setting; so frail, so per
fect, that contrast with things less aes
thetic seems almost sacrilegious.
"Its form Is pure, beautiful and self
poised. Its color, while dainty, is match
less in its depth. The bloom of the peach
conveys only a shadowj' description of its
delicate beauty. Its glaze is of great per
fection. When you gaze into its depth the
surface Is lost, and It is as if you were look
ing into some crystal-like pool of water.
Its indescribable pink is threaded with fine
veins of mossy green that are charming.
Its beauty cannot be measured by bounds
or limitations; there are no rules by which
it can be analyzed. You feel its power
coming on you like the odor of some un
seen field of wild Jessamine. Within the
limitations of Its simple form there is em
bodied something which, all the wealth of
the world cannot create. A spirit is ex-
Eressed In It that all the centuries of our
oasted civilization cannot duplicate. Go
where ycu will In any. clime. ' you may
search 'the treasures of all created beauty
for its counterpart. It is not to be found.
Then, can such a marvel be measured by
wealth? What, though It cost a million
dollars, if t ten millions could not replace
it? In a special case in the oriental gal
lery will be seen a number of fine speci
mens of this variety of porcelain, but once
let your eye feast on the exquisite sim
plicity of this vase and you have advanced
into a higher realization of beauty.
. "The first introduction of this wonderful
piece of porcelain was one of exultation, of
joy never to be forgotten.'' Eich succes
sive sitting with it brought new influences,
new sensations of delight, until its beauti
ful spirit had found an. abode where it
will linger until eternity. Its plain, simple
surface is without a touch of decoration;
vet it is t,he perfection o decorative art.
Its entire surface might 'be covered with
your hand, yet it contains a world of grace.
It is as if the spirit of beauty had found a
new birth, had been reincarnated into Its
simple form. It is said that one of the
porcelains that was held sacred by the
ancient celestials, whose blue color was
likened to the skv after a rain, became al
most extinct, and the pieces of It, being as
rare as the most precious stones, were
worn as Jewels. So who. knows but that
in the countless .generations to come the
fragments of this charming .vase may like
wise rival the precious stones of those
days?' Surely nothing could surpass its in
trinsic beauty. Those who are fortunate
enough to have felt1 its charm can con
gratulate themselves on having seen some
thing that has no counterpart on the
civilized world." ;
Consider the Thnmh.
Chicago Tribune. -
A certain class of philosophers assert that
character may be determined by the
thumb's shape. , A vain person Is said to
fold the thumb qnder If It is too long for
beauty. A grasping person has a long
thumb that -lurris. backward like & hook. A
good-natured person has a short thumb.
Thei artist's hand 4s a long, delicate one,
and the thumb In keeping. An artisan's
is short, thick and stumpy, usually with
broken nails, o that to some extent the
thumb is an index to occupation. At pres
ent it is the only one of the fingers exempt
from ring wearing except by -eccentric ac
tors, but for many centuries it was deco
rated in this manner. Kings were espe
cially given to wearing "thumb rings,"
and they were still in use at the time of
Henry IV, both for an ornament and as a
"sign manual." The" setting was usually
a Jewel cut in some distinctive design, like
a family crest, from wh'.ch is derived the
word "seal ring."
There is an old superstition concerning a
woman's thumb. If in closing the hand the
thumb folds out of the fingers she will rule
her husband. If under, she will be ruled
by him. It Is hinted that a majority cf
them fold out.
In the anatomy of the hand that of man
and monkey are almost Identical, the rad
ical difference being In the length of the
thumb. The monkey's thumb is the same
length as his other fingers. The muscular
development, 'however, is different. The
monkey's thumb has no "opposing power,"
merely the grasping power in common with
the other fingers. .
In the human hand only, on the contrary,
the thumb has "opposing power." That is.
the thumb can touch the tips of each or
any of the other fingers. But none of the
other fingers can touch the tip of any other
finger but the thumb. This opposing power
constitutes the fundamental difference be
tween the hand of man and monkey, and
may possibly be the "missing link" which
the monkeys have lost.
In grasping, the thumb Is opposed to four
Angers and exerts Just four times as much
strength. If you doubt it try to hang to a
turning pole without using the thumb. An
examination of Its muscles will show that
thy are the largest and strongest In the
hand. Injury to this member sets at rest
any dispute as -to Ps sovereignty over the
other fingers. Tie it up hi a rag and you
will be convinced.

S.OOO Samples Given Away from the
Oxygen Tobacco Cure Is Guaranteed

Ten days have passed sln:e the dis
tribution of tho five thousand samples of
Oxygen Tobacco Cure from the office of
The Sentinel closed. From day to day the
experience of those who received the sam
ples has been given to the public as they
have reported to us. Up to this time
1,200 have thus j-epor ted, and all testify
to the power of Oxygen Tobacco Cure to
cure the habit and all forms of tobacco
Not. one failure has come to our knowl
edge. We give below some of the ex
pressions used by those who have re
ported, selecting a few of the worst cases
of chewers, smokers and all the forms
in which " tobacco is used and by which
nicotine poison enters the system. One
gentleman says: T have been a great
smoker, ordinarily using twenty cigars a
day. I felt I was being injured and wanted
to quit. By the aid of Oxygen Tobacco
Cure I am now free from the habit, the
desire for it is gone and the effects on
my nervous system and stomach are fast
passing away. I am getting in better
health every day."
jA gentleman who chewed for fifty years
says: "Oxygen Tobacco Cure is a most
wonderful medlciae. I did not think I
could live a day without tobacco, though
I knew it was hurting me, but I resolved
to try, and now, after nine days' use, I
am cured. I scarcely think of tobacco.
I do not crave it at alL My health is
better, I am not so nervous, sleep well,
and have no bad t as to In my mouth when
I get up."
Another says: "I can keep my shirt
front clean now, which I could not do
while I used tobacco."
One young man Who had been a great
smoker of cigarettes says: "I am done
with the 'little white coffin nails,' as Dr.
Coblentz calls them. Oxygen Tcbacco Cure
has cured me. I do not want them."
Beware of the dealer who offers you a
substitute. There is no substitute for
Oxygen Tobacco Cure. There is none as
good. Ask your dealer for Oxygen To
bacco Cure and insist on getting it.
Don't waste time with doubtful experi
ments, but get the cure that cures.
No other was ever 'given out by samples
absolutely free, as Dr. Coblentz did this
to five thousand tobacco users in Indian
apolis. No other was ever offered to the public
in so convenient a form or at so small a
No other so thoroughly cures the dis
ease caused by tobacco.
No matter in what form tobacco was
used, whether chewed or smoked In pipe,
cigar or cigarette or Bnuffed, Oxygen To
bacco Cure will entirely cure the habit
and its effects.
