Our Phone 1327 wmt .m 'jut it mo A Sunday With the Scotch at Maple Hill Tom Powell, Topeka business man and sportsman, is going to try to in troduce the English-Scotch game o soccer In this section of the country. He expects to put on a soccer same in Topeka In the near future. Tom's Top-ska team, composed of descend ants cf the ir habitants of the English shirs an& the scotch gien, went up to Maple Hill last Sunday and was smeared all over a forty acre lot by eleven husky Highlanders of that vi cinity. But Powell is not discouraged. He proposes to patch up the holes in tie. fat and sleek and 40 cents a pound, ; cause it takes speed and strength and b roused on a thousand hills between Topeka and Silver Lake. And the fruit trees and cabbage plants and fat pas ture land mocked the poor, lean news paper men from the city. Of course, this mockary does cot apply to Kellam. who is portly, and to Doctor "Jimmy." who is fat. An auto trip up the Valley of the Kaw on a bright, clear, cool day is a staying power and gameness to play it- Judged front the gathering at the soccer field that afternoon. Wabaun see is one of the luckiest counties in America in the matter of the men who till her fields and conduct her busi ness. The writer looked at these men with envy and admiration. He also felt sorry for Dr. Sllverthorne. Of what use is a doctor among such men? Thev looked impervious to all the ills of the flesh except death.

Christmas. It is a great eame from a spectator's point of view, this soccer. That is. it Is when played by these earnest Scotchmen of single i-urpose. The Maple Hill came was described in the State Journal last Monday by the sport writer, bat the game is really worth further mention by another member of the staff. The sport mac never saw a soccer game before: neither had this writer. Bat then that doesn't make any difference. It is an open game. Nothing covered up. No hid den details or smothered intricacies. Then the story has a preface. The Maple Hill game mi'at have been buried in the Wabaunsee eounty peka. This is the preface, not the story of the game. Keilam is a fool ball fan from the far goal of the first field. He had heard about this soccer Now about this soccer game.

He spent the first mile of the journey apologizing for his car, its lack of speed, antiquated engine, flat-footed carburetter, delay ed transmission, etc. But it was an other ease of a New England house- Dr "Jimm v" stew-art frvtinri a fri.nii 1 as two men and he's so strong mat ne Silverthorne, also a doctor, and he 'rks harder trying to hold himself showed us the way to the grounds. ln than .he does al anything else.

They came fr-jm the rancnes over tne county, tsig men. most pacity when it is narrated that he of taem. nona or lace, earnest of man- played through the game like a de- wif anoioetzina to her table guests ner. speaking, a deep Gaelic tongue that mon and then went blithelv home to for a masterpiece of a mince pie.

Shiny. new, light, fancy cars have come and gone since Keilam run his Big Smith out of the shops and climbed the Rocky mountains- And this sr. rte car slipe along at forty per. No engine trouble, no hill trouble, no rough road trouble. The car ate 'em a l up alive. Plenty of cars along the road with the hoods raised and the owners half among the works and engine wheels. Keilam locked the door of his car s hood six months ago and has mielaid the key. We made the twenty-six miles to Maple Hill In an hour and fifteen minutes. It 1$ a Great Road. The road to Maple HilL It is one of the best roads in America. Sunday was one of the last of the ideal days of a fine fall. The upper road on the torth side of the river to Silver Lake is a good road- But the road from Silver Lake to Rossville is a grand road. It had rained a few days be-! fore the trip, but that made no differ- ence with that road. It is the Golden I Beit road east and west across the , Mississippi vallev states. The man ' who calculated its grades and esti- ; mated its levels had allowed for storms ', an flood and the ravages of the , cr.a-tging seasons. The north river road from Topeka west passes through the fairest por tions of the Valley of the Kaw. There : Is no more beautiful farm country land- I scape lying outdoors. September had j stolen the chill from a November sun, but the hare of a late fall lay on the river and part of the valley. It was . the harvest time, and gold had come to the place of the green of summer. ' The men from town gloried in the i view and stopped their machine often to look and drink the Kansas meadows ' and hnis and reaches of distance and i abundance of crops. The Kansas1 farmer in the Kaw valley is a pluto- i crat. and that is a fact. Why he should I care who is elected president or gov-i error Is past comprehension. Not even j acaesar exacting a tribute of 40 per; cent, of his substance, could keep him from becoming a hoWer of stocks and i f?H Ur'povehM institutions' IL a mind- The cornfields were fuTff?.tee Whoat a beauti ful pea green in the sunlight. The cat- there to hear. They love the soccer cattle. I have wandered off the sub- game as their fathers had loved it be- ject, I admit, but I'd rather write of fore them, and their fathers' fathers. Reid than the game. He has a face They love it because it is played out like Battling Nelson's fighting face at in the open in the sun and wind; be- its worst. His jaw is set in cement and the lines out from the edges of his eyes look like the stories of all the battles of the hundred years war. And yet to more than offset this are his eyes. Blue and Scotch and kindly and gentle. Reid and other Scotchmen of his stamp rank A No. 1 above the clouds in the Bradstreet of friendship because their breed weather gales and are staunch in battle. They are not to be confounded with the fair weather friends who are there for ornament only. It was a man like Reid that a writer of Scotch clasica had in mtnd when he said of a man, "He's not so very bonny. But he's leal to those he loves. I want to write about Jackson, too. and his feats of strength and his good nature and his skill as a soccer player, but if I do I will never tell about that game. , Remember that in soccer the play ers cannot touch the ball with their hands. They must kick it. They can use their heads or their bodies to stop the ball or push it along but the use of hands means a penalty. A goal is kicked between the goal posts and un der not over the bar. A goal counts a point. At the kicnoff the teams lined up not unlike a football match. It looked mighty fine. Some' one kicked the ball about a mile and then the 22 players came together and every one of them kicked at-the ball at onci . Made of Stern Staff. I thought that at least ten men would be laid out in the first onset. But it was not so. They were made of stern staff, these players. A kick en the knee or the shoulder or the shin they di.i not count for a fly. A man spun aronnd on his ear and Dr. "Jim my" Stewart lamented that he had not brought his medicine chest and surgical irrstmments. so he could help Dr. Silverthorne patch up this player and some seven others who had been kicked. But the man got up like a panther and chased down the field after the ball. It was a great game. Not a doubt of it. Those players kicked that ball to the four winds of heaven and the ways of the waters of the sea. They blocked it with their heads as cleverly s.s a juggler balances his properties. The forwards would "dribble" it down the' field with his feet Just ahead of pursuing players, guiding it as ten elertv tut a mother teaches a kiddie to walk. It was art. And then would the writer Judges that these were the come a mixup that makes the capture three places where the goal keeper of a fort look Bke an old lady knitting a art oc king. Topeka Players Were Game. The light Topeka forwards played a fast clever game and held their own most of the time with the heavier Maple Hilr men but in the back field where "Stonewall" Jackson and Reid and Warren played for Maple Hill there was no comparison in the play of the opposing teams. The three Maple Hill Scots guarded the goal like a bulldog watching a baby buggy Jackson stood like a tree. Reid had the displacement of a battleship. Warren covered the ground like a crop of wheat. The Topeka back field men were game, all right, but they did not have the tonnage. When the Maple Hill team came down the field toward th'e goal It was the tide coming up the firth of Solway. When the Topeka for wards, by speed and cleverness got the ball started dawn towards the Maple Hill goal and It looked like a point for sure, there would be this man Reid plowing his way through the whole team to kick the ball away: or Jack son in imitation of a sixteen cylinder seven ton auto track to kick the bail still further away. No one knows how far Jackson can kick a soccer ball. He don't knew himself. Jimmie Fyfe declares that the actual measured dis tance is a mile and three-quarters, bat Fyfe may be mistaken. Kicking a "Human" Goal. The Topeka goal keeper had more troubles in the game than a bear in a bee yard. Three times a goal was kicked on him, the ball passing by in a twisting carve like a brown streak. Then finally he caught one of these kicks and hugged the ball to his- breast in- triumph. Down on him came Stone wall Jackson and Reid and three more of the glegfoot Maple Hill clan. The goal keeper went down in a heap un der the rush ana then three eager Scots lifted three large feet at one time and kicked that unfortunate goal keeper through his own goal posts. He hang to the ball, so of coarse the count went down for a goal for Maple Hill. A Scotchman among the rooters on the sidelines' swore Joyously in the Gaelic tongue and bore witness to the blue skies above him that never dur ing 25 years devoted to close attention to the great game of soccer had he ever seen a goal kicked Just that way before. The Topeka goal keeper got up with the worst grouch this side of the Bal kan war zone. But he was game to the core. It was part of the game of his fathers. He rubbed his shoul der, -his stomach and his side. From these manifestations of interest In pain t - .T?Jjfcr'-"'"- - ' f -:- '.

In the scrimmage he was kicked three times at once and the places were hard to pick, either by eye or by the camera. But this goal keeper played out the game. He limped on one leg and one shoulder drooped a little, but he played with gameness and understand ing to the finish. . A. Famous Player Still There was a Maple Hill player, one of the forwards.. A slim, keen Scot, with a face like a hawk, hair gray as a badger and standing up like a shock. He was a bearcat to follow the ball He cculd turn on his toe like a cork scrsw and he kicked in canning fash ion from every angle known to the compass. It is said that he was a fa mous player years ago in Scotland. He is a famous player still in the eyes of one Topeka newspaper man. They finished the game at 4 o'clock. The Scotch of Maple Hill were hap py. The Topeka players, though beaten, had no cause to feel bad. The canny rooters at the ringside gava them commendation for having done well against odds. That Maple Hill team ought to compete with any class in the west. Some on took a little boy in kilties and wearing a Scotch bonnet, off a pony and then they set Tom Powell, who had refereed the match, on top of the beastie and led him off to town. Dr. "Jimmy the Official Photographer Dr. "Jimmy climbed on top of the crank to start the car. Keilam light ed the starting gear with a match and we were off for home. It was a dandy trip. Of coarse there were a few Httle disappointments, bat they did not count in the final audit of the books. Dr. "Jimmy, be It known, was the official photographer of the expedition. But he knows more about lancets and pills than he does lenses and focuses. His pictures showed tap like patches of brown on a fevered brain. That is. some of them did. Others looked as though they had been taken from a distance as far as "Stonewall Jackson can kick a soccer balL , . Keilam took a few pictures him self. Three of them turned out pretty well and are used, along with the one of Jimmy's that had : been focused right by accident. Home in the Twill zht Ke.lam is some driver of an auto mobiles He coaxed that old Smith car into believing that it had per petual youth in its tank instead of gasoline. Dr. "Jimmy took off his hat and sat on it. The wind whis tled by like two calliopes. We passed seven stylish cars with ease. We saw four others dead by the roadside and -caught fragments of the fervid con versation with which their owners ad dressed the ancestors of the men who built those engines back to the sixth generation. - Made the distance of twenty-six miles in an hour and ten minutes. And yet Keilam said his car wouldn't run. Driving a 1913 model six cylin der sixty horse car, KeUam would have arrived home in thirty minutes, barring a wreck. When there's anything doing at Maple Hill we are all going back again. Reid has promised to show ua the big Adams ranch. And be sides we want to see Jimmie Fyfe once more and get him to tell as about Bruce and John Dawson's an cestors cp among the border hills. Mrs. Brown-Smitb They must be very happily married. .
