After the good work ?>f the earlier drilla thia week auch a alump wa> the laal thing to be expected. When Dr. Bharpe flnally ordered the aquad tn the Clubbaoae after it had been held for downa on the freabman l-yard Itae, he refueed to commenl on the practlce, ex.ept to say that it waa "poor." Early in the afternoon the 'varsity and ib llned up for tne laat ^crimmage of the week. and this svheme of tblnga continued lor at.uut half an hour. when Dr. Bharpe called f->r th.- freabman team and put theiri in place of the BCnib aggre Kation. This unexpected move on the part ?>f the coach had Ita effeot. and had the "varslty reallsed the shift when the euba croased their llne for a touchdown. Hlll, fullhach; R. B.

MAY BE, GREAT CHAMPION Van Cortlandt Link8 Buzzing" with Oossip Over Un identifted Invader. A prlek in the bubhle of myatery that has been surrounding the movements ef a golfer who has been frequentlng the public llnks at Van Cortlandt Park th* last day or two was made yesterday, when a man a.yuainied with manv of the proaalnent forelgn golfers abroad said he raoogntaai \v. h. Horna, of chert** Kngland. This partlcular visitor, who waara a mask of black grease palnt. and a false mustache, wlll say nothlng, and . ommuflleates with the wide. wlde world tluough a couple of companlons, who have deelated the stranger to be a great player lntetit OO breaklng re.ords. Hcrne Ifl one of the longest drlvers In the game, either here or ln other countrles. but hls Bbllity la other departments of the game has been nothlng remarkable. At any rate, two prumlnent profeHsional golfera have d?clared themaelves ready ? t.i tackle the. stranger for dollars or mar bles, pmtlcularly the former, in amounta' up to and InclUdlng |l,<Xw. One of these is Alec gmlth, of Wykagyl. former' ? th-i holder of I oth the national and metropolt tan open titlen. Smlth stlpulates that the conteal ls to be a home-and-homo affalr, whkh means that half of the ma'chf would be played at Wykagyl and the re- J malnder at some course near by of thej itrangar's seiectton. , lt was ln the course of a four-ba.il match at W>kagyl yesterday, ln which a! A. Cunnlngham, an Englewood amateur,/ and Smlth were playlng agalnst Jaclr' Hobena. the Knglewood professlonal an&j former metropolltan open champlon, and I George Austln, another of the New Jor-J sey organlzatlon, that the myaterloua on*. was dlscussed. Smlth qulckly made! known hls wlllingness to meet the Ir.-I vader, and there were thoee ln the party' who expresses the destre to back Hobeaaj agalnst the man with the palntel face. , These facts were made known to tha men who are looktag after the lnterestsl of the stranger, but eomewhat contrarr to the announcement that thelr man would play for large stakea and bet all] klnds of money that he could break thal record of any course over which he played, these men stated that the invader) mlght not engage ln any mat- hes whKej here, nor did they appear keen for anyi of the Smlth or Hobena game. It waa also reported that the vlsl'.nr had trled to arrange a eerlr-s of matehes with John J. McDermott, of Atlantic t'u \ tiie present holder of the Americati ^p*n title. and that McDermott had gtvea Bt i slve answera, which ls not at all hke tha champlon. The mysterious player has given little opportunlty for an observer to get a !me on hla abllity, for he rarely takes the ? trouble to hole out on the green. After his drive, which is generally long. he makes an approach shot, and aometlmai take.s a putt, but If the ball doe? not happen to run down he plcks up and procoeda to the next tee. Ir,.-:dc-nta]!' . it la said on good authorlty that the st-an ger has not come any where near eaualllilg the 06 made by Klmer W. Loving ?*??>? this course recently, let alone estA'.'.i-diing a new record. which would BBBnt to indt cate that records are not as aaatly brokaa I as at flrst nupposed from tbe tone of the vlsltor's back.:.
