8 Engineers Win the District Title from the T HE sentiment expressed in a Cravat When you analyze it, doesn't a Scarf, a carefully selected Scarf, really best convey your good wishes? The true mission of a gift is the thought it concretely expresses, and in the choice of Neckwear both your taste and your regard are reflected. Perkins Neckwear offers the most elo quent bearer of your compliments. It's like saying the right thing because it is original in design and shape and genuine in quality. While our range of prices parallels those elsewhere, better silks are the rule with us. We are not customers of the open market But our colorings and patterns are, woven expressly for us; and our shapes are designed to our specific order. You'll choose from the richest, the newest, the reaDy best here 50c to $5.00 This week, until Christmas, we shall be open evenings. Perkins . . F at Fourteenth King's Horse the Favorite For Big 1915 English Derby Friar Marcus Considered Best Two-year-old of This Year. Waldorf Astor Second. Yew Yo:k. Dec. 20. Racing on th1 Eng Hafa courses under the auspices of the Jockey t'lub has ended for the season. The King's stables furnished the year's best colt. Friar Marcus, which is re- garded as the mo. t promising candidate r a . a ,. . ., for next year s Derby. Friar Marcus ' vent through the season undefeated. d'sfinction enjoyed by no other juvenile of note. The iist of winning" owners is headed, for the second time In succession, by J. B. Joel, whose dozen winners captured an average of two races each, worth tn the aggregate about $15.000. as against 900,000 taken by his majesty. King George IV. who ranks sixth in the list. Three- fouiths of the King's total was won by Friar Marcus. Among the first twenty names of winning owners there is not a man of moderate means. Waldorf As tor. with only three winners, won more than $80,000, giving him second place. W. M. Singer won 40.000. H. B. Duryea 132. OU0. Mr. Fairie $3,000. and H. P. Whit ney $17,000. Among the trainers "Alec" Taylor was the most successful, horses from his Manton stables winning $160,000 In the list of winning jockeys the Irish rider, Steve Donoghue, stands easily first, with vja victories out of 680 mounts. This is his first time in top place, which has been monopolised for seven years by Frank Wootton and Danny Maher, both now retired. It is Interesting to note that Waldorf Astor. H. B. Duryea, and H. P. Whit ney are prominent in the list; of winning owners. Mr. Astor being second should be encouraging to those interested in turf affairs here, as some day he may turn his attention in this direction. Mr. Duryea's winnings were due to the victory of his horse. Durbar n, in the classical Derby. Mr. Duryea is here at the present time, and there is every rea son to believe he will race some horses here the approaching season, especially if the European war continues. H. P. Whitney has many horses here, both home bred and imported, and there is every reason to think be will have a formidable stable ready as soon as rac ing begins in the spring. Albert Simons has a number of Mr. Whitney's horses at Norfolk. They are known as the sec ond string, while James Howe Is educat ing the better class at Brookdale Farm. WILL SHOW CHICKENS.

Those two strong football elevens we have been hearing so much .lbout lately, and that were to stand fa-je to face to I their annual clash a week ago, were i Identified yesterday. They were the En I gineers and the Vigilants and the score at this writing is 7 to 0 in favor of the ! former. However, that score represents about me least mruiing inciaem ni a wonirci- ful battle in Andrews Park yesterday I when Coach Carrouths team from the ; Washington Barracka won over the champions of the lndepe.id?nt foottll world.

End running was simply out of the question, as waa the kicking and forward passing game. Only a few open plays were attempted by the Vigilants. while not once did the j Engineers resort to the open gam'- It waa lust a terrific tussle In mud ankle deep, between two apparently evenly matched teams slong the old fashion lines. Iriinril on Reenlte. Not detracting a single lcta from the well deserved victory of the Bridge Builders, the result of yesterday's con flict should not be taken as a criteron as to the comparative strength of 'he tno elevens. Naturally there comes as an aftermath, of this great struggle ro ju. aiicrmsui, , i inn a" ""' ": independent football honors, an sreu- ment beyond all forces to decide that of what would have been the result if the ned had been dry and faat.

This combine tlon started with a rush and made live successive first downs, which placed the ball on the 15-yard line At thia point a golden opportunity was lost when a trick play failed. Although defeated, the Vlgllanta were not disgraced. They yielded nothing to their vanquishers In the spirit of their efforts. The entire team fought with dignity and desperation and their colors were never a moment spattered with the yellow of quitters. But If the Vigilants are given laurels, the highest tribute must be paid the Engineers. The running story reveals the fact that they gained more ground and probably showed more real foothai: ability than they had been given credit I rn. nrlnr ro VMt.m.v'i haul. Adding to what little satisfaction that couia oe gainerea in rrom tne Dattle on a muddy field, waa the work of the omclals who, passed many examinations to obtain the honor. Bryan.
