FIFTEENTH ANNIVERSARY OF
FIRST PUSHBAIilj GAME
"This'' date, ' thV . 'twenty-seventh of
November, is" ' associated yrtth -three
notable events in the! history of .the
modern ptage-7-th ;.flrst appearance
of Edwin Fori-est In 1820; , the debut
of Hary Anderson In 1875V and the
Hirth "of" Fanny Kenble ln 1809. For
rest, one of the "greatest tragedians,
was a native, of Philadelphia, and
was only fourteen'' when he-appeared
In the role of Young Nerval in Home's
tragedy, "Douglas." This -was his
first real stage appearance, although
even before that he had been oast for
a minor female partln a performance
at the South Street Theatre in Phila
delphia. France Anne, better known
as Fanny-Kemble, was a niece of the
celebrated Mrs. Siddons, and Was
born in London. .. She made her first
appearance: in 1829, playing Juliet to
the, . Romeo of her father, Charles
Kemble. Mary Anderson was- born in
Sacramento, Cal., but was reared, in
Louisville, and made her first public
appearance as Juliet at a trial mat
inee at -the Louisville Theatre on Nov,
27, 1876. Her stepfather, Dr. Hamil

Pushball contests wilWbe a feature
of, the Thanksgiving Dayporting pro
grams in several cities of the . United
States and in - many of the army can
tonments next Thursday. This young
est of sports has become Increasingly
popular and is now played in England
and Canada, .as -well as in Uncle Sam's
Land, where it originated. New Eng
land was the scene of the first push
ball contest, and it is said that the
first pushball was . made . in Newton,
Mass., in 18.94. v
The first real football contest was
played in New York fifteen years ago
tomorrow, Nov. 28, 1902. . The regu
lation pushball was not procurable for
this contest, and a- canvass ball filled
with hay was- used. The pushball of
the regular type is the largest and
costliest ball used In any game. , It is
six feet in diameter, and a good one
costs in the neighborhood of $300.
Even at that apparently excessive
price, it is said that there is no big
profit for the makers. 'English cow
hide leather, is used for the outside
covering, and the score of strips neces
sary are sewed hy hand. .
Each of the strips is about ten feet
long and half a dozen- hides- are re
quired to get thfr leather for' one ball,
and it takes an expert workman two
weeks to sew the material - together.
The most expensive rubber has to be
used for the bladder. The rubber Is
cut Into strips' and cemented together ;
in the shape of a glabe, exactly fitting
the leather covering when Inflated.
The' cover will last for many years, '.
but the bladder has to be renewed,
at a cost of $158, every two-or three
years. ' - " '
Pushball is played both 'indoors and
oh a field similar to. a football grid
tron " A goal ' occupies each end of
the field, and it is-the endeavor of the
opposing -'.teams to ' pushrthe ;ball
through the enemy's goal. ; Although
originating oh this side of the Atlan
tic, pushball is more popular In Eng
land than in America. The Britishers
have Introduced an Innovation where
by the players are on horseback.

WHY DONT WE MAKE
The present conflict la the greatest
tfrar thaf va been known In all his
tory. : It' la also,. In many respects,
the most horrible." It Is especially, so
because! of the presence of women In
the firing line and, - the half-baked
public , sentiment that seems to ap
prove, of, and applaud, their -fighting-.
The one great and. unquestionable
reason why women. should not be sol
diers is .the -very fact that, they are
-women. Nothing can" alter the great.
eternal principle -that their sex should
absolve. -;them " from military service.
But, one may ask. Is it any worse to
kill a., woman.- than," a man? Perhaps
your reason win. prompt you to -sayi
at first, that a man'? .life is as prec
ious as' a .woman's.- And. yet, deep
down Jn your soul you know that there
is something infinitely more horrible
and shocking in the Jdea of slaughter r
lng women. This very principle is a
part of the ethics of civilization.,,: .The
unwritten law. of . the se.,.ia"fv:omen

If you have imagination you. can much
more easily conceive, of your willing
ness to kill a man than of -your capa
bility of taking . woman's life. Iq-the
press reports of murder cases, why do
they, seem more shocking when wo
men are the victims?
It . is merely because they are wo
men. : If Is because ingrained in our
very sou-.s. apar-s rronv all customs and
conventions, there is a deeply rooted
appreciation of the fact, that there is
something, more sacred and more pre-,
clous in the life of a woman than in
that of a man. And this something is
found, in motherhood, whether .it be
possible or tirospective motherhood or
the realization of. motherhood- - It is
because of an instinctive realization of
what-motherhood means,' a recogni
tion, .of her greater value, and impor
tance, in. the scheme of life, that the
fundamentals of chivalry have, been
developed. . - ....
