CUT NO. B— THE WHIRLING PUNT.
The whirling pjnt noses its way straight Into
the air like a rifle bullet. Its whirling move
ment is due to a cut given by the instep
brought directly up under the ball. The ball
falls across the m6tep. The foot meets the
bell higher from the ground than in the sailing
punt, and more in front cf the body. It is a
difficult kick tc master, and when a duffer at
tempts it he only succeeds in giving the bell a
wobbling motion that fights the air. The other
rules fcr stepping, etc.. are the same as In the
calling punt.
Emperor Nicholas's prolonged nbF^nre, at sea
and the. consequent revival of rumors to the
effect that he Is bent upon th« abdication of
his throne naturally #rlv« rise to speculation as
to where he would sack refuge and make his
home in the even! of his abandoning Russia.
Paris Is no longer the home of "Klnps In Exile."
as It was In the days when Alphonse Dauflet
Cave that title to the mont dramatic and yet
truthful of all his novels. At the present mo
ment there Is only one ex-soverelgn whose abode
Is established In the French capital, namely, the
former Queen of Naples, who figures under a
most transparent pseudonyme as heroine in the
romance mentioned above. The atmosphere of
ancient Lutetia hap ceased to be congenial to
these victims of revolutionary movements. It is
not bo much that the government and every one
of Its members, from the President down to th*
humblest eergent-de-ville, represents a regime
that is absolutely antagonistic to monarchy, and
that the strains of "The Marseillaise," with its
threats of death to royal tyrants, are to be heard
at all hours of the day end night; but It is that
Paris has become the headquarters of revolu
tionary leaders from ell parts of the earth, and
that fallen kings and emperors are more likely
to encounter there than anywhere else in the
wide world the man responsible for their over
throw. They know, too, that many, of the revo
lutionary movements have bean financed from
Parts: not, it is true, by French bankers, but by
the foreign speculators established there who
are always ready to fish in troubled waters and
to lend themselves to more or less venturesome
and shady enterprises, both in France and
abroad.
These are among the reasons which would
render Paris the least desirable refuge for the
Cur and for his family should he leave Russia.
He must know full well, too, that he would bo
a most unwelcome guc-si, tlnce the French au
thorities would be at their WftS* end to protect
him from harm and from indignity. For there
are thousands of Russian refugees on the. banks
of the lease who look upon him as responsible
fcr their exi>, lor the sufferings of their rela
tives, and in many casts for the imprisonment
and c>ath of husbands, fathers, brothers and
even of sweethearts, wives and sisters. The
Slav is not of a forgiving nature. is prono to

expression thereto if the Emperor and his family

In olden times Rome was a favorite refuge for
rulers who had abandoned their thrones. The

"pTagram IV Illustrates a crisscross with a for
ward pass. All four of the backs stand In a row
about four yards back of the line. The ins Unt the
ball is snapped all four take one etep to the leu.
Th. fullback and left halfback stop after this step
and stoop down, co as to hide themselves, but the
right halfback and quarterback go on. The centre
rasa snaps the ball directly to th« quarterback, who
passes it to the left halfback as he goes by him;
then the fullback and the left halfback start around
to the right The left halfback, when he Is tackled
by the opposing left end. passes the ball on to the
right end, the fullback In the mean time going
ahead nnd Interfering. The right end lets the op
posing left tackle chares and helps the right tackle
to block him: then be moves out so as to be in
position to get the forward pass, keeping his eye
on the position of the opposing left end, so that he
will not be too far awr.y or too close when the for-
"FORWARD /^A^SsS.-.-.-*-
ward pass is made to him. The rest of the team
block their men as long as necessary, which i?.
however, quite a little while, and then g-o through
and lilt the second line of defence.
The beauty of this play is that when the de
fensive team sees tho ball passed directly from the
centre to the runner It will calculate that the run
must be outside of tackle, for the rules require this.
Therefore, the whole team will be apt to move over
In that direction, and the deception Is thus made
greater.
As a variation of this play the quarterback might
give the ball to the fullback as he runs by, and the
fullback dash straight ahead between right guard
and centre, with tho left halfback on his back; nr
then, again, there need be no deception, no "fake,"
no trick; the quarter can Just keep out on a round
behind the other three men interfering for him. In
this way you have three plays from this "backs-on
the-l'ne" formation.
Tn our signal system the odd numbers ko to the
right and the even to the left. Each play has a
number of Us own. When the signal giver, who
Is nearly always the quarterback, wants to call for
a certain play, he gives the signal number of the
play. in several other numbers, and the other play

Generally it is the second or third number of the

Nowadays there la no great city In the world
where people are so free not merely to entertain
but also to air the most advanced opinions.
Italy simply swarms with native and foreign
socialists and anarchists, who usually find their
way to Rome, and it was owing to their pres
ence there and the acknowledged inability of
the Italian and Russian police to keep them un
der close supervision that led the Czar and
Czarina, In the autumn of 1904 to abandon at
the very last moment their projected visit to the
court of King Victor Emmanuel and to the
Vatican, after all the arrangement* had been
made. Much the same condition of affairs
prevails in Spain, which has been the scene of
fo many anarchist outrages In recent years,
culminating In the tragedy that signalized the
wedding of the young King and Queen last June,
while as for Switzerland, swarming, like Italy,
with foreign tourism, who cross ita frontiers In
such hordes as to defy any surveillance, It has
for the last thirty years been the favorite ren

number and the signal ejhrer wanted to call for
No. 7 play. He then mlglit say 18-7-13-18-12.
I will now suggest a very grood key to use. You
will note that I started the signals at No. 7. Well,
make your key number tho first number, with this
provision, that if the signal giver use 3 any number
up to seven for the first number, then these num
bers do not moan anything.
In oth^r words, the first real signal number given
is the signal.
For instance, suppose I wanted to Rive tho No. 12
play. wJiich. If you have saved last Sunday's ar
ticle, you know means the right-half around left
end. I mlsht say 12-18-15-2 or 6-12-18-15-2, or 1-4-12-
IS-15-2.
In this way you fnni the npposlnß team complete
ly. Any simple method like this is aU that 1?
necessary.
Never have your signal key number more than
second or third number, because then you Inter
fere with fast play.
Never leave your signals lying around written on
a piece of paper.
There may be a traitor in school looking for Just
such chances.
He will take a copy and give them to your rivals,
and then bet against you.
A good signal giver must first of all learn to give
his signals evenly and smartly. He must first give
them slow and then fast, or one time yell and the
next whisper. Each number should be given like
a word of command. Sloppy signals confuse your
own side, but signals given properly should inspire
the men. The quarterback should call for a play
as if that play was the best In the world right
In that place. Jf his voice shows doubt or hesita
tion, his men will be insensibly affected by it. If t
captain commands his soldiers to charge In a scared
way. he will not get a very good charge from them.
The men and coaches should meet often In the
evenings and discuss what plays they would give
under certain conditions, and the quarterback should
never be at a loss. ■ Some men are born generals.
Good generalship will be more necessary than ever
this year. I will discuss good generalship and what
plays to give later on.*
Punting will be tremendously Important this year,
and a coach should set all his men to kicking,
hoping to pick four or five promising kickers to
develop.

The "sailing pur.t" Is going to be tremendously
valuable, because it goes low and long and can be
easily placed. If you ha\ r e a left halfback or full
back who can kick, you can use him for a quick
kick. The quick kick tends to keep the quarter
back on defence, playing way back, because no one
else lias time to go back and help him. Another
reason for Its use la that the opposing ends do not
block your ends.
Tho "whirling punt" is designed for a long, high
kick, which will be difficult to handle. It gives the
ends more tim<» to get down the field. It cannot be
used very effectively In the quick kick, so It Is used
from regular kicking formation, and several fake
kicks, which I Will give later, can be used in con
nection with It. You will And that your ends In
going down under this kick are blocked by the

ATLANTIC CITY AFFAIRS.
Many Visitors of Prominence at Sea

Atlantic City, Oct. 6 (Special).— Distinguished
men from different parts of the world have been
entertained in Atlantic City this week, and never
before has there been such an aggregation of
prominence to a short time. What -with the visit

Vienna, where he had a beautiful palace. But
it is doubtful whether Emperor Nicholas could
ever find a refuge there. He would certainly
be a most unwelcome guest. For there is in tho
Dual Empire a very large Slav population,
which, dissatisfied with Hapsburg rule, has for
years looked to Russia for encouragement in
its resistance to the Austro-Kungarian crown,
and which has always affected to regard tho
Russian Czar as its spiritual chief, to whom it
owes the same kind of allegiance as that which
devout Catholics accord to the Pope at Rome.
Moreover, the Hungarians hold Russia, and
particularly the imperial house of Romanoff.
in abhorrence since IS4S-'4D. when Emperor
Nicholas I marched a Muscovite army across the
frontier into Hungary for the purpose of assist
ing: Francis Joseph to suppress the Magyar in
surrection. The Russian troops rendered them
selves guilty of so much savagery and barbarity
on that occasion that to this day everything
Russian Is a subject of execration among all
classes of the population In Hungary. More
over, the disturbances which are looked for on
tho death of Emperor Francis Joseph, which In
view of his advanced age and impaired health
can no longer be regarded as a remote con
tingency, are not precisely calculated to render
bis dominions a peaceful and a safe refuge, least
of all for an Emperor of Russia.
Germany la out of the question, as far as
Nicholas Is concerned. No deposed sovereign
has ever yet chosen that country as an asylum,
realizing, probably, that his presence there would
be distasteful, not alone to the people, but like
wise to the rulers, since. it would serve as an
Illustration to the Socialists of the fate in store
for monarchs who turn a deaf ear to the people's

A few of the annotated of the Lord have found
refuge In England after the loss of their thrones.
King Louis Philippe died in the palace of Clare

Queen Victoria, after hl3 flight from the Tulleries

CUT NO. 7—THE SAILING PUNT.
This cut shows how the long, low "sailing*
punt is made. Stand with feet together, about
eight or nine yards back of centre. Take a
little step forward with the right foot as you
catch the ball with outstretched hands. Then
bring up the left foot sharply; nat straight
ahead, but a little to the right, so your body
will be leaning to the left as you kick. You
can get mere waight into it in this way. The
swing of the right leg should bs wide and long,
and carried well through. At the start of the
swing the leg is bent at the knee, but it is
snapped perfectly straight like the snap of a
whip whan the foot hits the ball. The isstm
is outstretched perfectly, stiffly, so as not to
have any give when it hits the ball. The in
step meets the ball just enough off the end tin
ir.ch or two) in order to give the ball ths sail
ing motion indicated by tha cut. Do not drop
the ball on the foot, but hold it below the
waist and toss it asfttty forward as you step.
Toss it well away from you ana low to trie
ground. The ball sails flat and smoothly on
the air, and in this way meets with a minimum
of resistance.
