PHILADELPHIA, PA., November 24.? I
The University of Pennsylvania foot-ball
eleven to-day closed one o? tho most
successful seasons In the history of tho
Institution by defeating the Cornell eleven
by tho score of 34 to 0. Pennsylvania
ecored four touchdownB In the first halt,
und two In the second. Hurt It not boon
for penalties Inflicted on the Ked and
I31ue, Cornell wpuld never havo be?n
within striking distance of the Pennsyl?
vania goal. The Ithaca boys were power?
less on tho offense until near the close
of tlie game, when Pennsylvania had In
an nlmost entire new team and on tho I
defenso they were equally weak. Not a !
first down whs earned by Uie vlsltorB In
the opening half, and only once during !
?this period, did Cornell hold for downs. (
Pennsylvania was penalized forty-five
yards In the first half, and was set back '
forty yards In tho closing period of tho
Fumble after fumble occurred in the
Cornell back field, and on nearly evory
offense, sho would lose the-ball.
A feature of the game was tho fierce
tackling of tho Pennsylvania boys. On
nearly every acriminase, when tlie Cor?
nell team had the bull, there would be
ono of the visitor? laid' out. Stevenson,
J'onnsylvunlus quarterback, was finally

Another .Lad Severely Injured
by Same Load?Lads Were
Shooting Targets.
Fritz Herman's Gun, With Two
Boys in Its.Range, Is Acci?
dentally Discharged.
A happy Thanksgiving party of boys
shooting at a target, was plunged Into
grief late yesterday afternoon by the
fatal shooting of one and. the severe ln
'jury of another.
Emmett Cousins, son of Mr. James
Cousins, of the Nine Mllo road, is the
lad who was killed, and Dick Galdlng
was so badly shot through the arm that
the member may have to bo amputated.
The whole mischief was done by one
misdirected load. The lad who did the
shooting was Frita Herman, 'who is
overcome with grief at the accident.
The hoys were at the residence of Mr.
Willard Jesse, on the Nine Mile road,
about four miles, from Richmond. They
were practicing with shotguns and a
target, or "black" was used. Fritz's
turn had ,come. He cocked the gun,
raised It slightly as If to aim and then
for some reason lowered it and swung
the muzzle around until, without his
knowledge, it had Dick Galdlng and''
Emmett Cousins In its range.
Upon the discharge of the gun, the
load toro through the arm of young
Galdlng, and almost every shot went into
the stomach of Emmett Cousins, Ne.ther
boy was' more than a few feet away, and
as the shot wore very small?No. 10?It
was said, they went In a lump, with al?
most the solidity of a bullet.
Galdlng was taken to his home, but
Emraett's Injuries were evidently so se?
vero that it was at onco decided to bring
him to the city, where ho might receive
necessary surgical attention. Ho was
brought to the Virginia Hospital, where
Dr. Hugh M. Taylor performed an opera-,
tlon, hoping thereby to save the lad's
life. The effort was vain, Death re?
lived his sufferings about 0:30 o'clock

Dick Galdlng was talcon to his home,

can get tho blood to clrculato between
the wound and tho hand, the arm will

'.. ., Virginia.
University o? Virginia, 12; University of North Carolina, 11. Virginia
made two touchdowns and kicked both goalB; Carolina scored two touch?
downs, but missed the first goal. That", in brief, tells the story of the great
annual foot-ball game, between the .two universities.
As had been forecnst.the teams were so evenly matched that it was a,
toss-up to pick the winner. ? The crowd?well, it certainly must have
equalled 15,000 people at a conservative estimate. Such a throng never
before .witnessed a foot-ball game-in this city, and it may be many years
bofore such another gathers to witness any'sport in this city. The grand"
stand, ;the uncovered stands on three sides of the field, and all available
standing room were massed with brightly bedecked humanity, and the
?people overflowed the grounds until the game had to be several times
stopped and reinforcements agked to get them off the field. When the
?game was at its'zenith in point of interest, it seemed from the grand stand'
that alhtost every ' foot, of seating space and every one of standing room
that afforded a glimpse of the gridiron .was pre-empted by the enthusiastic
and at times deliriously excited throng.
'..,. .'"-The fortunes of the battle wavered! with such regularity that the interest
was'maintained eyery moment until-the referee^ whistle announced the'
end. .Before Virginia scored, its last ; touchdown many thought 'the, game.
. had been called,.and. that Carolina had won,?11 to 0. This was due to the
| fact that the crowd had surged upon-; the gridiron to such an extent that"
play had to be suspended for nearly ten minutes. Not.Until Virginia.began
i preparations .to'try fdr goal was it .known to many that a touchdown had;
|i been? scored,'and that ' the game was not over. Many were "leaving the
ground when Warren began sighting the ball for the try for goal that meant
Iso much to his team,.and to the thousands who had made wagers on th?<
I result. If he failed .at goal, the score was a tie, the game a drawn battle.'
I The giant Carolinians, In their blue and white,, lined up stolidly beneath '
?the goal posts to wait, and, if possible, to block the kick that meant defeat
I or drawn game. Fickle fortune had smiled on the men from Chapel Hill,
but, at the very last moment she: dallied .with the Virginians, and finally,
fell into their willing arms. Wari'?ri's'try for goal went straight toward the
posts, but too low to get.over the bar. It would have been a failure had not
an' overzealous Carolinian leaped into the air and touched the ball just
before it reached the bar,-causing it to'bound over with the point that:,
spelled victory.
j ? It was the very irony of fate that the Carolinians should have lost the
game, as the direct result of an effort to prevent a score. Had he not
touched the ball it would have gone under the bar, and the score would have
been 11 to 11.
Even after that the team got at It again, and. Virginia kicked toward
the west goal, but before/half a dozen rushes the end came, and the
Carolinians walked slowly and disconsolately toward their dressing, rooms, .
while the students from the University surged upon the field and bore off
the winners, intoxicated with the sweets of triumph. An animated wilder?
ness of fluttering orange and blue covered the park. The Carolina banners <
had all disappeared or drooped in sorrow in tho nerveless hands that held
them. It was war, and the glory went to the victors.' 'The visitors had
many loyal supporters, however, and these wore compensated in some
measure for.their bitter disappointment-by their admiration of the splendid',"
game put up by their fellows and their gallant bid for victory, which was
lost by the .narrowest possible margaln. Of course, there are many expla?
nations, and "lfs" and "ands," but the whole story is told when It Is said
that Virginia's victory was deserved,, and that Carolina certainly got all
she was entitled to.
Such a magnificent assemblage has perhaps never gathered to witness
a game on a Southern gridiron. The spectacle, the sorles of spectacles, in
this panorama of gorgeouB color, life and motion would be difficult to
surpass. From the very degree of the great white-barred oblong back on
the south to the grand stand and bleachers that bound that side, a surging"
sea of humanity swayed and ebbed, rising to the topmost tier of seats.
To the east the small stands recently re-erected, were banked with people,
and on the ground below they stood In rows extending backward from
the very goal line itself. A similar condition existed on the west side of
the field,, save that there ? were no seats thore. On the north side of the
field along the low fence that protects the gridiron from encroachment,
there was a 110-yard line of humanity banked for three or four rows deep,
and boyond them on the low stands just erected there, several thousands
were massed. Still further to the north all the remaining space was occu?
pied by carriages, talJy-hos and hacks and vehicles of overy sort. ,
At the foot of .the stand and bleachers on tho south the crowd waa
so congested that.there was no passing either way, and hardly room to turn
In one's place. The game had begun before several thousands had gotten
in view of tho field of play. Suddenly a swarm of men and women rounded-,
the west corner of the bleachers, and surged upon the field like an ever
rising tide until all the intervening space was filled and many actually
encroached upon the field of combat. Undor those conditions the officials
very properly called the game until tho field was cleared. The police force
on hand was Inadequate to the task, even with the aid of tho twenty-two
players, tho officials of the game, the coaches, uewspaper men and county
officers. Finally Mayor McCarthy ordered that an extra detail of police bo
called, and they soon arrived, headed by Captalu Kerso, resplendent in
his new decorations and gold braid; Sergeant Sowell, a squad of regular
patrolmen. With tholr assistance tho crowd was pressed back, ropes wero
stretched and tho teams ngaln lined up and play was resumed. Even aftot;
this hundreds camo, and at every opportunity tho restless and excited throng
burst Its barriers and rushed pell-mell upon tho field by hundreds. Several
times play had to be stopped to enable the field to bo cloared. The progress
of the game and Its result wore not affectod by the encroachment of tho
crowd, for tho officials Just would not play until tho field was clear. Tho
ball was picked up and carried around until the gridiron stood out clear of
The crowd was never inore llborally deeoratod, nor moro enthusiastic
than that of yesterday. Virginia probably had tho more adherents among
the thousands of men and women, but when Carollua scored or Carponter
made one of his sensational end runs tho Carolinians created such a fluttor
of bluo and white flags and banners and ribbons that "it seoiued indeed
that tho mon from "down homo" wore in tho majority. When the tide o?
battle veered, however, and Virginia scored tho light blue and white dis
appoarod almost from view, and the scene was transformed into a riot of
orango and navy blue. The tulo of victory ebbed onil flowed, and with Jt
tho human kal?idoscope changed its hues. It Was iudood a riot of color,
a gorgeous color scheme that cannot, bo adequately described ay tho ani?
mated throng cheered and yelled and danced with gloo, When Virginia's
first score was made in tho socond half such a pandomonlum and such a
forest of waving flags wore novor hoard or seen hero. The crowds sa'.tg
and yelled and cheered In unison, Individually and In discordant, confus on.
Away to tho north the strains of tho band could scarcely be heard, and
n?any know not of Its presence. Thousands of dollars must havo been
spent In flags, ribbons, canes and bits of appropriate color, and every bit
was in evidence at one tluio or another In the two hours and moro of tho
contest. *
The gamo was won on its merits by Virginia. ?But for two costly
errors?one of play and the other of judgment?Carolina would not have
scored, and certainly should not hnvo had but one touchdown. Hut that 1*
foot-ball, errors and all. Tho estimate of thp two teams mudo by Tho
Times-Dispatch yesterday proved absolutely correct. "It was state! that tho
two wore so well matched that it waa a toss-up to pick tho winner. Such
proved to bo tho case. It was also stated that Virginia's was stronger In
tho lino than Carollnn, and that Carolina had the heavier and faster backs.
This proved absolutely correct. Thousands of dollars were wagered ou th?
result at oven money. A ?ew bete were made ?a to scoioa. and vue of $500 ^
