As a result of the laboratory test of the 1907 brand of football, in progress at Ann Arbor, in which Coach Yost himself, Dan McGugin, Willie Heston, "King" Cole, Longman, Curtis and a number of the other leading lights of the University of Michigan football, past and present have taken part, Coach Yost expressed himself as fol lows: "The football of 1906 will be a pretty game to watch and a fascinat ing one in possibilities from the play ing standpoint. To my mind, the rush ing style of game, alternated with the ne wone-side kick, will prevail. The forward pass will be a great aid to such plays as wingshifts back of the line, but, when used past the line of scrimmage, will be a mankiller. The man receiving the pass will be in poor position to protect himself, as he will' be compelled to look over his shoulder to watch the ball and will be a sure and unprotected mark for the tack ier." Yost announces that his ends will be big, heavy men, and that one of them will be Curtis, his star tackle in past years, a man who weighs over 200 pounds. This will enable him to pull Curtis back for interference which would be practically- impossi ble were the player in any other po sition. On plays where a fast man is needed, Curtis will be switched to halfback. Sporting Spiel. Boots and Boosts: Milwaukee fight promoters are pluming themselves up on the "discovery" of a new fight ref eree—McBride of Buffalo. McBride was refereeing battles when some of the present-day battle mongers of Milwaukee were in the mud-pie class and having quarrels with the house cat over the chicken bones. His work in the old Herman club at Port Erie was about the best done there and that includes a famous list of arbitrators of the glove game. Eddie is something of a battler him* self, having won one grand, glorious victory by a knockout punch delivered to Johnny Nash, in a friendly manner. Edward was showing Xash, a red-hot battle-fan, how a certain pugilist had put away his man and in demonstrat ing swung his arm a bit too vigorously. Nash stuck his face forward, anxiously, to see the new swing. He did. He went down and out and was away ten minutes. McBride's chest swelled up like a pouter pigeon's over his prowess, but he retired as a producer of the poppy-punch right then. Nash was a warm friend of Mc Bride's. but Nash thereafter did all of his arguing with "Hotspur" over the long-distance telephone. McBride is not a new one at the fight game. He is not so old but he *ras "discovered" before they started Stopping trains at Milwaukee. The drafting season in baseball started yesterday and now doth the busy magnate of the big jasper circuits get the assegai sunk into him by the crafty magnate of the huckleberry leagues. He pays high prices for "Sheol Roaring Johnson, the peerless backstop of the Morning Glory Bat busters." and lays down his cash for the services of "Battleax Brown, the .world-famous twirler who pitched the jiobit game against the Possum Trot ,Tooters on July 4." Next season Roaring Johnson and Battleax Brown will be taken south #nd showed up. The magnates will then try a little of the bunk themselves and unload' these pin-pricked balloons upon the class A leagues. The brush is being hunted with a fine tooth comb this year and the wily club owners of the crossroads teams are not doing a thing, Jasper, not a thing, to the "wise ones" of the big leagues. Up this way though, we have got so accustomed to getting the spear in the peek-a-boolng part of our bodies that we think nothing of it.

Aaaoelated Press to The E veal as Tines. Pittsburg, Pa., Sept. 6.—Rather than be the mascot of the Milvale baseball team, which was defeated by Etna on Wednesday, a large St. Bernard dog deliberately committed suicide. Ordinarily the Milvale team wins, and the dog has been used to victory. Every time the team won he is de clared to have shown signs of having been tickled nearly to pieces. But it was different Wednesday. When the dog saw how things were going in that game he took a sneak in the latter half of the ninth inning and refused to look anyone in the face. Nothing could be done to break his spell of despondency, and finally, as if to end his misery, he made a dash last evening for the Allegheny river, dived into the water and has never been seen since. The dog was owned by Arthur Gos nell, a member of the Milvale team. HflfcT FOR CHANCELLOR. Bishop Mann Nemed D. B. Holt as Snc eessor of Late Seth Newman. Special to The Eveilag Times. Fargo, N. D., Sept. 6.—A meeting of the chapter of Gethsemane cathedral was held last night. It was the last meeting which Dean Burleson will have an opportunity to attend before going to New York. The usual routine business was tran sacted at the meeting and then the bishop announced the appointment of .D. B. Holt to be chancellor of the dio cese of North Dakota. The vacancy was caused by the death of Hon. Seth Newman. 'The announcement of the appoint •ment of Rev. P. S. Arnold to be acting rector of the cathedral was also made fry the bishop. The new assistant rec tor is a graduate of an eastern col lege. MONUMENT TO PILGRIMES. Associated Press to The KvealB* Tlmea. Boston, Mass., Sept. 6.—The historic town of Plymouth is no longer to be left with the unquestioned reputation of being the place where the Pilgrims signed the compact and landed to form a settlement. The Cape Cod Pilgrim memorial association has offered five prizes of $200 each for designs for a monument to be erected at Province town. to celebrate and comme'morate the landing of the forefathers and the signing of the compact at that place. The monmnent is to be of granite, not less than 250 feet high, built upon a hill of sand formation about 90 feet above sea level. Its cost is estimated at about $80, 000. Politics Rather Warm Accord ing to U. S. Marshal Shea. Fargo, Sept. 6.—United States Mar shal Shea has returned from a visit to his Richland county farm. He reports crop conditions in that sec tion of the state fair, but disappointing to many. "On my farm the harvesting re-' suited in a yield of about seventeen bushels of wheat to the acre," said Marshal Shea. "It was expected that the yield would be fully twenty-three bushels. "The political outlook is the most interesting topic of discussion in Richland county just now. however. The people of the county have about come to the conclusion that the 'holier than thou' fellows.are danger ous. They know that their pocket books are in grave danger when one of that class comes around. "Just now in Richland county the people are especially stirred up over an expose of a printing graft in which a county official is alleged to have been implicated. I am informed on very good authority that there are likely to b? similar exposes of county officials in eleven other counties in the state. "It appears that these county offi cials have been in the habit of ac cepting trade discounts from certain printeries and putting the discount in to their own jeans, thereby robbing the county and taking the work out of the county. "The county newspapers are de serving of the support of the citizeus of the county and when these trade discount games are in progress it is the country editor who directly suf fers. I have always noticed that the country newspapers are needed in pol itics and always can be relied upon in clean politics. But the same is not true of the big job printing, con cerns and the result is that there is very apt to be exposed in the near future gigantic grafting operations in which county officials of other coun ties than Richland will be implicated." NEW TESTING PLANT At the State A. C. for Deter mining Bread Making Quali ties of Wheat. The last session of the legislature enacted a law providing for the erec tion of a testing plant at the agricul tural college and the testing of wheat to determine its milling value and bread making properties. The machine has been received and is now being installed. Senator Young was the father of the bill and it is aimed at the abuse by elevator companies of undervaluing the milling and bread making proper ties of wheat and depressing the mar ket. The nev law provides for a plant at the agricultural college to which farmers or anyone else can send their wheat and have it analized. They will then be able to meet the elevator com panies half way in making the price: Farmers are urged to send their wheat samples to President Worst from ail over the state in order that thorough tests may be made of the last year crop as well as the new crop. Senator Young recently received a let ter from President Worst and he thus interprets the law We intend to conduct an investiga tion along the linr as laid down in the act of the legislature for 1905, also to extend our investigations much farther in the development of new strains of wheat adapted for North Dakota condi tions to produce the highest grade of flour to make investigations of wheat as found in our various elevators as grown upon the demonstration farms and substations in the state, and in co operation with the farmers who are in terested in this line of work. It is quite likely also, that if the work is supported by the state so as to make it possible, there will be de veloped a course for the benefit of young men who desire to become ac quainted with the study of wheat, wheat breeding and the milling pro perties of wheat. This course would be designed specially to fit young men to take charge of elevators, and also for running flour mills. FIFTY DIFFERENT CROPS. Grown on Same Ground By Twin Falls, Idaho, Man.—Irrigation Congress. Associated Press to The Eveilic Tlaiea. Boise, Idaho, Sept. 6.—On Tuesday when the National Irrigation Congress assembled, U. S. Senator Carter of Montana again presided. Dr. El wood Meade of the government reclamation service, spoke of the "evo lution of irrigation institutions," deal ing with the steady development from absolute private ownership of small water rights into a great system of community and government owner ship. Some startling statistics were pre sented by Prof. Samuel Fortier of the university of /California, in an address dealing with the loss of Ta.ter through waste. He made the assertion that in the western states $50,000,000 were ex pended annually in securing and dis tributing water for irrigation, and that of this water thus distributed, fully ,75 per cent was wasted, causing a net loss to the people of the western states or more than $35,000,000. He expressed the opinion, however, that all of this loss could not be prevented, though he believed that fully 10 per .cent of this enormous loss could be saved. Alexander McPherson of Twin Falls, Idaho, told of experiments on a 40 acre farm at Twin Falls on which are .grown fifty different kinds of crops. #«s experiments, he said, had demon strated the correctness of Prof. Fort ier's theory of losses through exces sive irrigation. He stated that a total of 36 inches of water wa ssupplled to the farm during the year, and of this amount he estimated 77 7-10 per cent was lost. WALTHALL'S BRIGADE. Oxford, Miss., Sept. 6.—Surviving veterans of the famous command known as Walthall's Brigade met in annual reunion here today. There was little or no business to be trans acted and the affair was entirely of a social nature. The veterans were entertained at an old fashioned bar becue. THE EVENING TIKES, GRAND FORKS, N. D. DAN WILL TRY. Great Pacer to Go Against His Record Again Saturday. Dan Patch will go against his own record again Saturday at the Minne sota state fair and it is the opinion of many that the king of pacers, will succeed in clipping a. little off the mark. A record breaking crowd attended the races there yesterday and a fine bill was presented the lover of fast horses. The summary 2:30 Pace, Purse $2,500—Custer won the second, third and fourth heats. Time. 2:09%, 2:11«4, and 2:08%. Mark Onward, Karina, Vola, Thor, George Perry and Myrtle S. also started. 2:14 Trot, Purse $1,000—Lavette, won the second, fourth and fifth heats in 2:12%, 2:12% and 2:14%. Baraja won the first in 2:12%. King Enter tainer won the third in 2:11%. Rajah, Rosco, Babrook and Aslandorf also started. Three-Minute Pace for 3-Year-Olds, Purse $500—Flora Directum won in straight heats in 3:15%. U. C. A. also started. Miss International and Wilk son were distanced in the first heat. Tomorrow the feature of the track will be the 2:02 pace, with The Bron cho and Castlewood the probable start ers. Was Hard to Break. When the Broncho was foaled she was good looking and awfully lively— which was about all that could be said in her favor. When it was time to break the nag to harness there were troubles galore. The plain truth is that the filly did not want to be broken and came perilously near making good her objection and thereby losing to the turf the greatest race horse pacer ever seen, as she now has to her credit the fastest three heats ever paced in a race, displacing the mighty Star Pointer. But broken she finally was, and had speed from the start. She raced to a record of 2:15%, driven by the blacksmith, but was headstrong and unsteady. This was in 1903, the mare being then 5 years old, and the following winter Mr. Adams decided to give her a professional trainer. He picked Charlie Dean, just then beginning to be a light among western relnsmen, and sent him a letter. In the spring of 1904 the Broncho began work with the rest of Dean's horses, but it was not long until she singled herself out from the common herd and showed what she could do, says a sporting critic. One day be fore fast work was in order for any distance longer than a quarter I saw a pudgy looking little mare, driven by Jim Callahan, one of the assistant trainers, pace a mile in 2:24%, keep ing well to the outside of the track. "That," said Dan in reply to my query, "is a mare called the Broncho. She has a record of 2:15%, and I want to say right now that she is a first-class horse." Western Horse Shows. Western horse show managers have organized the strongest circuit of in door exhibitions yet arranged for the months of September and October. Seven shows are to follow one another in eight weeks, with prizes aggregat ing nearly $100,000. St. Paul will open the circuit on September 11-14, offer ing $8,000 for competition. St. Joseph follows with a show under canvas September 24-29, with $10,000 in prizes. Louisville will come next, with $15,000 for the annual exhibition, beginning on October 1 and continuing five days. Then follows St. Louis, with $12,000 in prizes for a five days show opening on October 8. From St. 'Louis 4 the horses will go on October 15, to Kan sas City, where the prizes foot up to $15,000 thence to Omaha, October 22-27, where $10,000 will be offered, and from there to Chicago for the ex hibition, at the Coliseum, beginning October 29. For this show the prizes will be about $25,000. No one can consistently wonder at the decline of public interest in pro fessional harness racing in the Grand circuit, and the crumbling away of that once great league of trotting tracks, when its stewards stand re sponsible for such lax enforcement of the rules as horsemen have observed at some of the meetings held this sea son. In the present condition of affairs on the trotting turf it is doubtful whether any judge who enforced the 1 A pretty' set of collar pins is that consisting of small flower sprays with a tiny drooping leaf which holds a pearl dew drop.

He would have a large number of meet ings. He would have a large number of drivers and owners arrayed against him, and their entries would be wit held from any meeting where it was known that he was to officiate. The professional judge not annatur ally seems to protect himself against the enmity of influential owners and drivers, and to do this he must be blind to much that goes on at the average meeting where bookmakers and pool sellers ply their trade. No where is the maxim of "talryrand." Above all, no zeal, so essential to con tinued success-as in the judges' stand on a trotting track. Track managers are in the same boat with the judges. They depend on entrance fees and the sal eof the bet ting privilege for revenue with which to pay their purses and must cater to those who contribute most to sup port their meeting or els eclose their gates. While they are, perhaps not in the majority the trotting turf is undeni ably interested by a formidable band of unscrupulous drivers and owners who are threatening the ruination of harness racing as it has not been threatened before since the Grand cir cuit and the National Trotting'asso ciation were organized. To control this band of plunderers a strong government and a united front are needed, and the trotting turf pre sents neither. The National Trotting association seldom takes the initiative in the detection and punishment of jobbery in races, but leaves to the local associations the task of enforcing the rules. Standing alone and depending for their existence on the good will of the owners and drivers, these local asso ciations are, with few exceptions, not strong enough to hew to the line, and some of them, as all horsemen know, have no desire to do so. The conse quence is that drivers pnd owners seem to do about as they please. With much promise of success the local association in the Grand circuit two or three years ago set out to form a closer union among themselves and to provide better means for enforcing the rules of their meeting. But they stopped half way and accomplished practically nothing. They appointed one judge to go through the circuit, but left two— enough to control—to be chosen at each meeting by the local association. Moreover, the choice of the circuit stewards seems to have been just as unfortunate as those of the local track managers as this year's campaign has shown. Backbone is the quality most needed in the judges' stand and. in this respect all appear to be woefully lack ing. To further safeguard the integrity of the sport the Grand circuit stewards appointed "racing stewards." whose duty it was to attend all meetings and supervise the administration of' the rules. For some reason or other these stewards have been conspicuously ab sent thus far this season. No one identified with harness rac ing doubts that the stewards of the Grand circuit stand for clean sport, but their best friends cannot deny that it would be hard to find any other in terest in the horse world so badly managed as trotting on the big mile tracks under their direction. Though no amount of pulling and jobbing can rob harness racing of its attractions for the thousands who are interested as breeders or as pleasure drivers in the development (of the American trotting horse, ahe masses of the people, who once supported it so liberally and who still support it far better than its management de serves, are beginning to turn away from a spirt which is honeycombed with fraud and governed with a hand so weak that. Incidents like the case portrayed on this page are constantly passing unchallenged. His many friends will rejoice at the good luck of "Dan" Kimball, who won the 2:30 pace at Sabetha, Kan., with Willie Hamilton by Wawan, stepping one mile in 2:24%. Willie Hamilton, one of the fastest pacers in Nebraska two years ago, was purchased by Kim ball & Robare, of Beatrice, and es pecially fitted for racing in 1905. At Tekamah, his first start, the horse reared several times, injuring his back to such an extent that he could not be started again that season.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6,1906. THIS IS MY 75th BIRTHDAY". Vlctorien Sardon. Vlctorien Sardou, who for a quarter of a century has s)ood at the head of French dramatists, was born in Paris, Sept. 6,1831. His parents were bitter ly opposed to the boy's entering the literary field. Notwithstanding ardent entreaties, Sardou was packed off to a. medical college. But the lad avoided the dissecting room and devoted him self to writing. It was while attached to Necker hospital that he published his first play, a tragedy in blank verse,, called "La Reine Alfra." The encour agement he received led him to throw up medicine and enter the literary ranks. His home allowance was cut off and the young dramatist had a hard time of it for some years. But it was: merely the darkness that comes before the dawn. The success of "Candide"' and "Pattes de Mouche" opened the doors of ail theaters to him, and from that day his reputation was made. Success followed success. Sardou's plays were translated into all tongueB and brought in large sums. Among his best known plays are Fedora, La Tosca, Cleopatra, Robespierre, and Dante. LOSEY HELD FOB TRIAL. Lisbon Man Will Have to Answer to Charge of Bobbing Postofflee. Special to The BkiIm Tiatea. Fargo, N. D., Sept. 6.—George Losey was held to the federal grand jury after a hearing before United States Commissioner Montgomery yesterday on a charge of complicity in the Lis bon postofflee robbery. The evidence against Losey was cir cumstantial but, It is claimed, much positive evidence of his guilt will be .presented to the federal grand jury when the case is investigated. The testimony against Losey at the hearing this morning was in effect that he had been seen near the postofflee on the night of the robbery and that on the day following the robbery he had been hiding. He was discovered by the sheriff in the baseball park at LlBbon and his actions Indicated that he feared discovery. He was under a pile of lumber. Commissioner Montgomery fixed LoBey's bonds at $2,000, which the ac cused was not able to furnish. Losey has long been under suspicion for different offenses. He has served a term in the Minnesota penitentiary and at present is said to be under bonds in Iowa, where he was arrested on a land fraud charge. MISSOURI MEDICS.
