too. decided to go in at the last moment in order
to keep his men on their mettle. The eleven
that represented the Blue was a pretty formid
able combination in some respects, especially
In view of the marked Improvement shown by
the Cadets over their game with Harvard three
weeks ago.
Yale' line hitting and aggreslvene. when
In posseaslon of th ball, was a revelation to
the many graduates who helped to frlage the
beautiful gridiron, and HoBride's punting was
also In the nature of a treat. But In tackling
and breaking through the New Haven men
were considerably below the usual standard at
thJtlmeof the year. Fumbling by the back
and offside play were also features worthy of
adverse criticism. The ends. In particular,
were alow In getting down the field on kinks
and also In bringing down runner who tried
to sail around them. Hubbell'B end was skirted
once by Waldron for fifty yards, the latter hav
ing a clear Held with the exception of McBride,
' who threw blm down In the very nick of time.
Allen and Chamberlln were also somewhat
rami In breaking up the Cadets' attack, al
though they both did finely In providing hole
and interference for their own backs.
Brown played a -superb game at left guard.
but Marshall did not get Into the plays with hi
old-tim form, displayed so prominently against
Harvard last fall. Cutten, the big minister,
who Is the best man for centre at New Haven
just now. filled the plane left vacant by Cad
walader as If he had tha experience ot
year on a 'varsity eleven. He Is the
oldest man on the team, and. though not
so tall a Cadwalader. he 1 fully a strong
and consequently can put up a powerful de
fence. Cutten. however. Is not quite aggrei
I ve enough and tailed to follow the ball to
day a he should. But the coaches hope to
smooth tha rough edges so that he will de
velop Into an Ideal map back before the com
ing struggles with Princeton and Harvard.
Of the men baok of the line. McBride. who Is
tha best full back in the country, easily carried
off the laurels. His kicking was magnificent
In fact. It was perhaps a bit too strong for his
' ends, for on a number of occasions he sent the
oval so far down the Held that it was a rather
easy matter to catch it and work it back before
gubbell and Coy could get to the catcher. Mo
rldo had a fault, though, that surprised the
onlookers. He fumbled and muffed a number
pf punts in the first half, but recovered the ball
by falling on it. His line bucking made up
for these blunders, and In this respect he
showed a wonderful improvement over last
rear's 'form. When he was not lugging the
ball through holes in the West Point line, be
was engaged in dragging his comrades
through, and he did it with so much ginger
that toward the end the left side ot the oadots'
line was badly shattered.
Yale's attack was remarkably fast. Quarter
Back Hulli van rattled off the nlguals with few
mistakes, and thereby kept up such a constant
pounding that the cadets had to give way. The
ball was passed with such precision and swift
ness that the Yale backs were able to com
pletely fool West Point as to Its des
tination. But for a couple of penal
ties for holding and off-side play, Yule
would probably have mode a larger score.
Half Backs Marvin, Oilmore and Wear wore all
fast on their feet, ran low and hit the line be
hind their interference with good judgment.
Tho Interference, by the way. was better than
what the crowd- had been led to expect, some
of th close formations ripping up the West
Point tackles and guards for big gains.
The cadets' backs played great football.
Eromer did better us quarter hack than over
before. Bomeyn, while outkicked by McBride,
did good work and also bucked the line for
fains. Waldron was easily the star for West
olnt. though, his long runs working
the crowd up to frenzy. His side partner.
Humphrey, also made soma visible gains,
chiefly at the ends and taoklea. Smith and
Baender at the ends were conspicuous for
their flying taokles and fast hustling at all
stages. They made Ilubbell and Coy look like
schoolboys in comparison. Foy played strongly
at right tackle, and Kuuis at loft guard handled
big Marshall well.
There was some fault found with tho work of
the officials, tin- umpire permitting consider
able unnecessary "monkeying" nnd rough
ing In the scrimmages. Brown missed both
goal trials from touchdowns, probably be
cause the ball was heavy from the damp
Held. There w a big turnout of not

splendidly tackled by Smith on Yale's .forty

caught by Kromer, who dodged both ends and

a qulok fall, and on the first line-up Wear
dashed between Schull and Ennls for twelve
yards. McBride. for some reason, punted here
and Kromerwas tackled by Coy on W)t Point's
ten-yard line. Of course Komeyn kicked the
ball back and McBride ran to the cadets' forty
yard line. When ho went down Yale' full baok
was laid out, the first tlnie In over a year, tha
coaehera said. Wear and Marvin made about
eight yards at tho tackles, but West Point got
the hall for holding and also received
five yards for offside work In the cen
tre of the line. It waa at this stage
that Waldron startled the crowd with aanpero
run clean around Ilubbell. He was so fast
that he also avoided Sullivan and dnehed on
with nobody ahead of him except McBride.

" Tear 'em to pieces I" cried the boys In gray,

through Ilubbell and Allen to the twenty-yard

braced and on the fourth down West

the coveted goal line. Altar wear and Marvin
had tried to gain. McBride punted out of bound

Cambridge, Oct. 2f. For the first time this
season the Harvard 'Vnnilty eleven found them
selvos facing opponents to-day with the score
5 to 0 against them in the early stages of the
game, and for a tlmo it looked as though the
Carlisle Indians might give the men in crimson
a tight pull for. victory. Tho Harvard mon.
however, made a brace and managed to make a
touchdown in the first half through a fluke
play, and another In the second half, giving
them the victory.
Tho weather conditions were about as bad as
could bo. The gray clouds that covered the
sky In tho morning began to sift rain about 3
o'clock, and from this on the drizzle gradually
Increased until in the second half It began to
pour. This, however, did not prevent a crowd
of 8.000 people from coming out to see the
Before the game began there was consider
able confidence In the stands that Carlisle
would be unable to score, and that Harvard's
weight and strength would tell heavily when
the team waa on the offense. The slippery
field, too. It waa argued, was against the red
men, as little Hudson would bo unable to drop
any of bis famous goals from the field. The
game proved otherwise, for Hudson did score
a goal from the field and Harvard's line proved
about as effective as paper against the spirited
rushes oflthe Indian backs and linemen.
When the Indian eleven came on the field in
their 'bus and jumped out at the lockor build
ing on Soldiers' Field to don their football togs
Wheelock, the big guard, hopped out with a
stiff leg. Disciplinarian Thompson sold that
hehad hurt himself and would not play In to
day's game. This necessitated Bemus Pierce
being moved from left guard to right tackle,
Frank Scott, a substitute, taking Pierce's
place. Miller and Uenesa, the half backs, were
also in bad shape. The latter lasted only the
first half, while the former stayed the game
nut only by his sameness, as tie received a
fresh injury to an already bunged-up knee
joint early in the game.
The game was especially disheartening to the
Harvard supporters. The home team's play was
from the first decidedly ragged, good plays at
intervals beliig the only point to bring encour
'ngement to Harvard. Much of the Indians'
failure to make the score against them less
was the ability pf the Harvard backs In the
punting line. Mctoxen and Hudson wore no
match for Daly and Haughton and lost ground
at the rate of fifteen or twenty yards every
time the game was tried. Cochrane also did
soma fair work, but spoiled it by missing an
easy Held goal and by kicking straight
into the Indian lino, losing the half His play
at end, however, more than made up for his
lnisuluy. In an open field he played the whole
game for his side, tackling tho Indians hard
and solidly and stopping them in their trucks.
In the second half no unfortunately wrenched
his knee, when Farley was called In and did
some very good work. Tho Harvard tackles
proved exceptionally weak, the Pierce
boys having Donald and Mills on the
string throughout the game. Most of the
Carlisle plays were directed at this
part of tho line, and it waa here that moat of
their gains were made. Donald especially de
serves a word of criticism. He was fooled out
of his position by his crafty opponent time and
tlmo again. In his desire to even up, Donald
got to scrapping with his opponent, and all his
exertions only injured his own side.
At times It looked as it there waa a driveway
through the Harvard centre, and through thla
hole t lie Indian backs camo tearing for Irre
sistible gains. Prompt nnd efficient work by
thtt rush Hue and half backs was all that kept
the Indians from making a bigger score. As
it was, Seneca, Miller and Cayou at different
times cleared every man on the Crimson eleven
except Daly, and in the oase of Cayou the
sprightly llttlo quarter back only managed to
get his man hy one leg. Mills did slightly bet
ter than' Donald, but plays were sent at him
t lino and again for gains that should have been
Mills plied up his men much better than Donald
did and some of the gains mode by tbe Indians
was due to t iio failure of tho Harvard line men
to back him up, the Carlisle backs squirming
forward for gains after the tackle had held the
men up. Mills also got down tho Held In flue
shape, and little can be said against his play
when it is considered that ho was suffering
from intermittent fever, which declares
itself every other day. Haughton replaced Mills
in the second half and did excellent work,
especially in punting and in running with the
bull, starting from the line and following in
round his interference. He also deserves
credit for paying strict attontion to play snd
letting his opponent do all the scrapping. For
this reuson he had much hotter success In
breaking up tho plays directed against him
and in nailing the runner than either of the
other i rimson tackles.
Hallo.. I'll, at and, showed great ability to
break up the interference, but seemed without
that judgment or instinct to find the runner
which lias i.een characteristic of all great end
rushers, of the centre men, Bonl did by far
the best work: his only fault wns that in his
anxiety to rush through nnd tackle behind the
line he not infrequently madeahole just where
the Iudians wanted It. On the offence Boalwas
great. Time and again he rushed into the Car
lisle line, totally unaided, like a mad bull, and
most of the time for gains. Several times,
.though, Benin . Pierce met the big Han-ant
sni mi head on, and every time the two came to
Hothcr tho white man sat down forcibly. Most
of tho attacks were directed against Redwater
und Scott, and this in no small measure ac
counts for their success. Jaffray also did ex
cellent work at centre, being consistent on de
fence, una getting considerable activity Into
his work. ,

advantage there was to be derived from the

Tha Indian galloped around the end for
small gain, and then Metoxen. on a play that
twisted when It reached the taokle. went
Into the Crimson territory for fifteen yards.
The boll was now w)l within Harvsrd
twentr-jard line, and (joltl shiver began
to thrill up and down th back lof the
Harvard supportor for fear of a goAl from
the field by Hudson. The Harvard Hue wns
playing fast and furlons. so that the Indians,
unable to make gains either at end or centre.
decided to try for a goal. On th next play
Hudson dropped back for a kick, and every
body was on tiptoe. Smith mftde n fair pass,
bnt the little Indian was overanxious, nnd ss
he made no allowance for the head wind the
ball was just turned enough to miss the goal
posts. Hall of Yale, who Is ormohlng the rod

ho thought the Indians had the Cambridge

On the kick-out Miller ran fifteen yards, and
a minute later s)iited through tackle for
fifteen yards more. Carlisle consistently ripped
up Harvard's line and ends for gains until the
Mil waa on tho twentv-flve-yard linn fairly"
and squarely In front of the goal posts. Tho
Crimson here' bold r three downs, and Hud

the ball through the goul posts. Cochrane

Carlisle could make no ground, and Miller was
called on to kick. The ball wns Harvard's in
midfield. and Cochrane returned It to the
three-yard line. Hern Millet' nnd Hudson.
who worn back to receive the hall, made
a great mistake. Instead of taking th leather
thoy let It roll on. In the hope that it would go
into touch, but they waited so long that Coch
rane had time to got down tho Held and put It
on side, enabling ilullowoll to fall on It on the
threo-yard line and practically presenting Har
vard with a touchdown. The Indians, how
ever, disputed every inch of the throe yards,
and so fiercely that it took four rushes hy Held
to get it over. Cochrane kicked the goal.
During the remaining tlmo both sides made
desperate endenvors to score. Harvard had a
great chance through Miller's fumble, which
Jaffray fell on but lost It through holding. In
theseooud half the fight stood about even.
Harvard, however, showed up strong and fast
at the finish, while the Indians, although fast
and strong, too, showed the effects of their
punishment. Dibblee snd Warren did soms
effective end running, while Boa! and Bold
used tho guards for steady gains. Dibblee
llnally carried the ball over after hi side had
worked it down to the three-yard line. Once

ever, came up strong and walked Harvard
down the field, after recovering the ball on
downs, and it was only hy the most heroic
efforts that the Indians were eventually
stopped on the fifteen-yard line. A punt by
Haughton put the ball Out of danger. At t ho
end the ball was in possession ot the red men

tory over Pennsylvania hove fallen !) percent.
Dr. Brooks, Bert Waters and Coach Forbes
were All loud In their condemnation of the
team's work. The ability of the Carlisle men
to hold their ground and to break all of Har
vard's Interference Is tho most discouraging
feature of the game. Throughout the contest
Harvard used merely simple old-fashioned
plays, while the Indians, besides operating the
Woodruff "pusn-taokl Interference," used
double passss and mass plays galore. The
Crimsons' fumbling was also very discourag

Philapklphia. Oct. 2ft The University of
Pennsylvania eleven upheld its great reputa
tion this afternoon in one of tho finest and
fastest games of football ever played on Frank
lin Field. Tho Quakers defeated the champion
team of tho Western college, tho University of
Chicago, the score being 23 to 11. It was a
magnificent game to look upon, full of long,
brilliant runs by both teams, fast play and
dazzling tricks, such as might be expected to
he sprung by such heady coaches as George
Woodruff and Stagg ot Chicago. Chi
cago's slickest trick was on the kick-off.
The full back ran as if to make a long, hard
kick, and instead dribbled It only about fifteen
yards, while be ran ahead of It and a Chicago
man behind fell on the ball. It bewildered
Pennsylvania and tbe officials as well, but the
ball was finally decided to belong to Chicago.
The trick was accomplished for the purpose of
giving Hlrsehberger an opportunity to try a
place kick for a goal. Ho tried away back on
the fifty-yard line and the ballmlssod the posts
by just two feet.
Pennsylvania sprung the delayed "fake"
pass with the most remarkable success. It
simply took tbo Chicago team off its feet, and
on each and every application of the trick
Pennsylvania made wonderful gains. One in
stance in particular Is noteworthy. Oufland
received the ball and Coombs acted us dummy
runner toget through Chicago's left end and
tackle. Two-thirds of Pcnnsr's team went
around with Coombs, and, while Chicago was
very Intent upon stopplnghlm. Outland sped
down the field seventy-three yards for a touch
down. Two Chicago men got In his way, hut
he dodged magnificently, and placed the hall
directly behind tho post. It was Pennsy's first
acore of the game, and the people went wild
with joy.
The Chicngos were as powerful In every de
partment of the game as prophesied by tho
Western orities. and that they did not defeat
Pennsylvania was simply because the Quakers
awakened tot lie situation In the second half and
played football that has never been equalled In
Philadelphia. The first half ended with tho
score favoring the Chicago team, 0 too. Chi
cago had scored in tho first nine minutes of
play, and, it might be sold, had runthnPennsyi
vanlas right oft their feet. It really looked like a
complete tbrowdown of the great Quaker eleven
and their great coach. Before the game Chicago
money was floating uround the stands in thou
sands, the followers of StAgg's team being will
ing to wager even money that they would win.
It was taken up as fast as It appeared, hut it
kept coming like lightning, and to say tho
least tho Chicago men were game to the core.
After the Westerners had crossed the Penn
sylvania goul line on a series of clever
gains around the ends, the Chicago men of
fered 5 to 3 that tbey would win. They were
confident of victory, and to look at tbo two
teams on the Held it would have been hard for
any but a true-blue believor In Oenrge Wood
ruff and his team to back anything but Chi
cago. Pennsylvania was on the run and no
mistake. The Pennsylvania leaders along tho
side lines were going through all tbo agonies
that defeat brings. Those In the stand were
offering up silent sacrifices. Oiitiaiitl'a grand
seventy-three-ynrd run across the Chicago line
made everybody fool bettor, but happiness was
again turned to despair when he missed tbe
goal by barely a foot.
Shortly after tin. hair was over and the two
teams went to their dressing rooms tho Penn
sylvania University band struck up tho " Bed
and the Blue." but neither the student body
nor the thousands on tho stands could enthuse.
H was a damp tlay as far as enthusiasm was
concerned. To make it all the more dismal,
the sky became overcast with ominous-looking
clouds. While tho Pennsylvania crowd wus wor
rying Itself to death two or three hundred Chi
cago rooters in the north stand were giving vent
to their jubilation, and were making merry,
while under tho stand wuroihe lVniisylvlauia
boys reatlng up. Woodruff gave the team a
lecture that they will not forget until their dy
ing days. He raved and ranted, and to this ef
fort Dr. J. William White added somo very im
pressive words. Just what effect nil this had
was evident when the second half began.
Pennsylvania got the kick-off ami from her
own thirty-yard line forced the ball across the
field eighty-five yards by straight line plunges
for a touchdown. Th trick was accom
plished after live mariutus' play. Pennsylvania
now showed the most magnificent spirit and
worked the mighty "guards back" till tbe
Western champions were almost dead. It now
began to ahow which was the better team.
The Chicago men could do very little with tho
Pennsylvania centre and ilio only way big
gains could be made wore around
the ends. Pennsylvania soon drooped to this,
and before the second half was ten minutes
old had the Chicago men pretty near where
she wanted thorn. It was in the second hall
that Hlrsehberger. getting on the Pennsylvania
thlrty-llve-yard line, dmpped 11 beautiful goal
from the field, bringing the Chicago score up
to 11 points. The half was almost over now.
however, and Pennsylvania had already '.'.'I
points to her credit, enough to win hy snd u
little to snore. Hare. MeCrackoti. and Outlaud
were the Pennsylvania stars, and they did
magnificent work, going through the lino time
after time. Then. too. Ha re's kicking was all
that could bo asked. It was not nearly so
brilliant t list ol HirsChbcrger, but it did the
work nnd did it well. Ho did not have a kick
blocked, while in the first half Folwell got
through thoChicug.i lineuud stopped one of the
Chicago man's low punts. It. however, did not
result 111 anything. Hlr&ahlierger. Clarke, and
Kennedy played magnificent football for Chi

Chicago scored in the first ten minutes of the
play. After two kicks bv both sides the ball

then Hare punted, llirbchbciger returning.

The ball wns worked up and down the field

Pennsylvania's thlrty-flve-yard line, Outland
made his famous seventy-three-ysrd run. from
which no goal was made. Pennsylvaiita's first

got tho ball and after two or three gains lost it
through Cnrnett's fumble on the Quakers'

Same ended without either side getting near
ie other's gonl,
Chicago is easily within the limit of the big
four nnd without doubt can take a fall ont of
one or two of the crack teams. That Is the
general opinion of all unbiased critics. Any
team that has among its members a man who
con make a field goal from the fifty yard line
needs to be looked upon with deep. considera
tion. Hcrschberger tried for n gonl from that
mark during the i.-amo nn I only missed by a

PnovtOKNrK. Oct. 2ft Brown's confident
hope of scoring against Princeton, whom, she
met for tho first time to-duy on the gridiron,
was not realized, while the Tigers made four
visits to the territory behind the brown and
whitegoal. The score was 23 to 0. The whole
contest, particularly the first half, was the
prettiest exhibition of football ever seen here.
The game was open, no one was seriously hurt,
und thore were many spectacular play. Brown
distinguished herself lor defensive play. Dur
ing tho second half, when Brown got a bit tired,
Princeton repeatedly charged her line success
fully, and won out by .sheer strength nnd the
brilliant work of her ends. The first halt was
a punting exhibition almost entirely. At this
Bates hnd slightly the better of Wheeler.
Brown got through Princeton's centre several
times, and Sheehan almost at will got through
for good tackles. It was not until near the end
of the half that Princeton began her revolving
play, which resulted In the ball being sent be
tween Brown's goal posts. Wheeler missed
the goal at a hard angle and against the wind.
Brown started the second twenty-minute
battle with n rush. Washburn shot through
for seven yurds gain. Brown regained the ball
once for off-sido play nnd Immediately bucked
the Tigers for another four yards. Wheelerof
Princeton ran through the whole Brown eleven
and made forty yards, ovep'onflng a long punt
bv Hat cs. It waa when a punt by Wheeler was
blocked and Brown got the ball on Prince
ton's twonty-yard line that the visitor's goal
was most in danger. The Tigers, however,
frot the ball on downs and soon had
t on BrowD's twenty-five yard line. They
finally secured another touchdown. The long
dispute over whether a Princeton man had a
frco catch when Hnpgood tackled him resulted
in Princeton getting a place kick. Palmer made
six yards, and line bucking soon sent Black
through fora third touchdown.
Richardson made several brilliant runs and
dodges in the second half. He once got almost
loose for n sprint down the field, and the fine
work of Princeton's ends also prevented him
from making two touchdowns. Princeton's
last touchdown, which saddened tbe Brown
campus to-night, happened because Poe was
ready when something happened. Brown
fumbled the ball, Poe grabbed it and ran forty
yards, while Brown gronningly gazed after
him. She did not lose courage, however, and
made some effective onslaughts against the
.lerseymen's heavy line. The game ended with
tho ball in the middle of the field. For Prinoe
ton. Wheeler. Poe. Palmer and Black oarried
off the honors. A cold drizzle and a biting wind
prevailed, but there were 2.500 persons pres

Ithaca. Oct. 21). Cornell went up against a
"good thing" In Oborlln this afternoon, win
ning tho game by the narrow margin of six
points. Cornell played five substitutes, but
nevertheless should have run up a larger
score. In the first half, after the ball had been
in dangerous proximity to Cornell's goal line
a number of times, punting took tho ball near
the visitors' thirty-yard line. Here Alexander
wus used effectively in line punching and
finally made a touchdown from tne fifteen-yard
line. Young kicked goal. For the
balance of the half It was an even
thing between tbe two elevens. The second
hall was even more stubbornly contested.
i iberl in's halves circled Cornell's right end re
peatedly and broke Cornell's interference so
that it was well-nigh Impossible for Cornell to
make apy material gains. Once in a while
Whiting would make a pretty dash, but It was
without interference, the interference failing
to get in the place. Alexander was the star
ground gainer of the game. Oberiln has an
exceedingly strong team. The line-up:

Williamstown, Oct. 2W. Williams defeated
Trinity to-day by the score of 2 to 0
in two twenty-five minute halves. Trinity
waa outclassed, and had not Williams
pluyed it kicking game in the first half tho
score would have been larger. In the
firbt bnlf Williams scored twice. After several
exchanges of punts Williams blocked Littell's
kick on Trinity's thirty-yard line, and the
Williams backs bad little difficulty In rushing
the ball for a touchdown. After the next
kick-off there followed ' several more ex
changes ot kicks. Finally Williams secured
the ball in the centre of the field. Draper
made a pretty run of thirty yards, and good
gains by Decamp and Branoh soon carried the
hail over the line. In the second half, soon
after play begun. Williams totk the ball in the
centre, snd a series of short gains by Branch
and Pot lee secured the third touchdown. After
more exchanging of punts tbo home team
gained the hall on their own forty-rtve-yard
Tine, from which they curried it steadily down
the field, Decamp and Potter doing good work
and Branch making one run of twenty yards.
Shortly before time wss called Trinity suc
ceeded in advancing the ball to the William
llfteeu-yard line.
Hanoveb, X. II . Oct. 20. Dartmouth met

carried the Wesleynn boys off their feet.
Weslevuu then seemed to get together,
and lust as time was called In th
first half succeeded in pushing Townsend
over tho line. With the score tl to i against
them Dartmouth went In the seeotnl half to
win; but she could not withstand the fierce
plunges of the Wesleyan backs, and was pushed
over tbo lino for threo more touchdowns. For
Wesleyun Townsend, Ituymond. and Laue did
the heat work, while for Dartmouth Boyle.

Its first game In tho East to-day by defeating the
strong Newtowne team iu a fiercely contested
game by thu score of 8 to 0. Chicago had a
considerably heavier line than Newtowne and
used her tackles and guurds with telling effect.
Most of Chicago's gains weru made through
tackle, the entire team getting into the play
mid sending the man with the ball through tor
substantial gains The ends were also worked
for largo gains, allhougb Murphy for Newtowne
put up a good defensive game and on several

than the week preceding, whether the Run wa
lmi or the wind wa fierce. By the middle of
the forenoon lo-ilay. If the skios are clenr. a
great crowd will undoubtedly be paaalng for
review on every good riding road. The habit
of eyollngln tha early morning la maintained
by many, bnt the keeper of roadhouae ay
that the " early bird" are not o numerous.
In proportion to the total number of rider, a
a few yearn ago. It I ald to be oase of hear
ing all day long stories of good Intentions that
never bear fruit. One rldef describes toanothar
in glowing terms the delight of his rid In th
early morning, and th second man lament that
he wa not along ami tells tho story of how he
has been making resolution all summer to get
up and go cycling in the early dawn, hut how a
ohain of circumstances has prevented. It is
probably within the experience of every rider
to have formed similar good Intentions and
violated them. A suggestion from one man
that sounds helpful Is for those who forget and
over-sleep or are bed lazy never to plan
to go out early alone. , but to acquire an
obligation to get up and out by arranging to
meet a companion, and after a couple of such
trips at this time of the year the desire to en
joy early rides will become so keen that the
fact of being tired or up late the night before
will not prevent th usual trip. One of .the
reasons assigned for the disproportion be
tween tha number out in the afternoon and
those who ride while the dew is fresh I that
the average ge of cyclists Is greater than It
waa. the growth of Itho snort recently having
been largely among the more eldorly and leis
urely class.
Reports from various parts yesterday showed
that macadam roads had dried out and were in
good condition, while the dirt roads were still
heavy from the effects of Wednesday's rain.
The latter were drying rapidly, however, and
with dear weather they will be in very fair
condition to-day. Some ot the points to be
noted concerning local highways that are pop
ular with wheelmen, furnished by the last re
port of the L. A. W-, are as follows: There are
some bad breaks In the asphalt of Lexington
avenue between Forty-second and Fifty
ninth streets. At Amsterdam avenue and
HUth street there Is a dangerous elevation of
the car tracks above the road surfaoe.
The riding through lOHth and 110th street,
between Hlvorslde Drive und the Boulevard 1
rather dangerous at night, owing to there
being insufficient light. Eighth avenue, be
tween Fifty-ninth and 100th streets, is now
well lighted, and there is good riding. Horn
Ingslde avenue, although somewhat obstructed
by building material. Is generally good. Fifth
avenue, below Fifty-ninth street, is torn up in
several places. St. Nicholas avenue is rough
north of 136th street, and Lenox avenue also
la unite poor. Boulevard Lafayette and Con
vent Terrace road are unfit for riding. Thirty
fourth street Is now asphalted as far west
as Ninth avenue. The roads at and around
New Roohelle. Hye. Pelham. Trovers Island,
Larchmont Hd Mount Vernon were all in good
condition. Main street In Port Chester Is being
repaired. On Long Island the country roads
have gullies in places, but usually there Is a '
hard side edge to bo followed. The rain has
done no harm to the macadam roads, and all
the popular nearby routes offer fine riding.
The new rosd system from ltoslyn through Hen,
Cliff, Olen Cove, snd Locust Valley Is nearly
completed, and most of the way is in good
shape for riding. There is considerable mud
remaining on the Jersey roads, but they are
all ridable, except for a few bad snots. On
Htaten Island the riding will be found excel
lent, as usual.
Arrangements for the jubilee bicycle parade
on Monday night have been completed, and tbe
success of the venture now rests with the
weather. The head of tho line will be on the right
hand side of Tenth street, resting on Broad
way. From there the ride will be to Fourth
street and then to Washington Bquare, In order
that all may pass under the arch. The parade
will move up Fifth avenue and be dismissed at
12th street. Elders and owners of automo
biles desiring to participate will report to the
Orand Marshal at 8:30 o'clock on Monday
night. The headqunrtcrs of the officials will bo
at the Brevoort House. The judges will be in a
reviewing stand at Fifth avenue and 12()tli
street. The Madison Wheelmen hnvo arranged
fora reception of the paraders in the Palace of
Industry at the end of the ceremonies. M. M.

A great many complaints have been made
by different persons, both cyclists and driv
ers, about the blockading of tho Boulevard it
Eightieth street by truck and wagon drivers
who pull their vehicles directly across the
street in order to let their horses drink from a
trough that Is In front of a saloon thcra, A
few days ago the street at this point was
blocked eight minutes by actual timing, and
during that Interval there was not a policeman
in sight to whom appoal oould be mode. Home
members of the Consulate, having despaired
of getting the police to give sufficient atten
tion to this locality to abate the nuisance, have
uiipronched the proprietor of the place In front
of which the trough is located and have asked
him to move It around to the Eightieth street
side. The man, however, is obdurate, because
on the next block in front of a saloon there is a
trough placed there by the H. P. C. A. The
Consulate argues that there is no need of two
troughs o near to each other and will seek to
have ono of them removed by legal procedure
and then endeavor to lnatigata some arrests
in order to make examples of the drivers who
leave their wagons stretched across the road
way. While discussing informally tbe work of the
committee nn street sprinkling appointed by
the L. A. W. Consulate nnd what it la hoped
can be accomplished, a member of Ihe commit
tee yesterday u noted a sayiug of Col. Waring,
which strikes mi neatly at the root of the trou
ble that, as the member remarked, it might
well be f rallied as a motto and hung in all tho
offices of the rltreet Commissioners. It is:
"Clean streets need no sprinklluv. exoept for
the purpose of cleaning them, and then tbe
Mirihkllng should be done by those who do Ihe
To th Kpitor or Tug Run Sir: I noticed
In tin- bicycle column of Tub Hum of Oct. 2fi an
account by a parly uuined It E. Compton of a
rid- he took to demonstrate what distance an
ordiuary eyelet could cover in a duy's ride
without apparent fatigue He states Unit he
rode a wheel geared to 102 Inches, and weigh
ing, with all on. :ih pounds 7 ouuees, over a
dlillcult road ut the rate of thirteen mile nn
hour for the first two hours and u quarter.
After thtt he rode it great deal foster, u he
elui ms that lie covered a distance of llVi miles
in In hours und 54 minutes, riding time, or ill
hours 2tt minute, elapsed time, so that he
must huve ridden at least fifteen nillus au
hour some part of the lime. This is apt to
mislead people as to what a rider can do. for It
tt.kes a lli-st -class. well-se.iMiniil rider with
special training to tlo what he says he did. I
speak from experience, us I have already done
what ho says he did, except that I had
a wheel geared to seventy-seven Inches, and
can say that I was not very fresh at tho close of
said ride. 1 should like to see him or anyone
else trying to ride on liifllcult roads with a
wheel geared lo HO inches, and weighing 'IM
pounds 7 ounce, at an average speed of 14.4
miles an hour. I uun imagine him at the enil
of bli. journey. Voura truly.
