The Football Boom Continues
to Grow and Spread.
The Crackerjacks at Agricultural
Park Cause Comment.
A Baseball Oame at Athletic Park That
iteiuinriail the Fans of Other
Mays— Oosslp of the
Sporti bave "looked up" during tbe
weak just past. The arrival of Harry
Walton, wbo will coach the Athletic
club's football team, started the
kickers to talking, and it's nothing un
less it's football with them now.
Just as soon as the weather permits
Walton is going to get the boys down to
"oases," and the club extends an invi
tation to all football players in the city,
wbatber members of tbe club or not, to
come out to Athletic park and kick end
kick and kick.
The dispatch to the Hkrald stating
that the Chicago university eleven con
templated a trip to tbe coast and a visit
to Los Angeles, helped to awaken the
old enthusiasm, and on top of tbis a
letter from tbe manager of the Texas
university-eleven asking if games could
be arranged with the Athletic club's
team here, made things in the football
world fairly seethe.
The Athletic club's eleven expects to
make a good showing against the Stan
ford team on Christmas and the Ber
keley's on New Year's day. All the
material of tbe club will be inspected
carefully by Walton and tbe very best
of it picked out for the team, and then
when the team is selected it will get a
careful training until all its eleven mem
bers are cabable of the best tbere ia in
Tbe horsemen of the city are elated
over tbe arrival of three carloads of
world-beaters and craokerjacka. Tbey
bave expeoted that the mouth would be
a dull season with them until tbe an
nouncement came that Monroe (Salis
bury and "Pa" Hamlin had decided to
bring their strings to California.
Tbe fact ia there isn't much to attract
horsemen to Los Angeles except the
very favorable winter climate, but tbe
horses are here now and before they go
again we shall see some of the finest
races ever had in California, out at
Agricultural park.
Tbe bieyclistt are not dead nor even
sleeping, but tbe past week has seen no
very great events with tbe wheelmen.
It it said that Tom McAleer will shortly
make an attempt to lower tbe 100-mile
coast record, with fair chances of doing
that very thing. A race between Mo
Aleer and Fay Stephenson would be a
good event and wonld decide a contested
point among tbe wheel ists.
'ihe Sunday meets of tbe Training
league are interetting events and will in
time attract larger crowds, as the ad
mission is free and a great deal of good
sport is to be seen. But what tbe boys
want more tban anything else is the
very training they get at these meetings
and hence tbey are destined to become
more popular aa time goes on.
Tbe baseball boys are enthusiastic
over the second game and expect to in
crease the attendance at tbe Sunday
games right along. Such games as were
witnessed yesterday when tbe Wilsons
dsfeated tbe Stara in 12 innings by a
score of 4to 3, will greatly help to re
popularize the game in this city.
A great deal of talk is being indulged
in now by tbe sports anent tbe building
of a grand athletio park in this oity
where facilities wonld be afforded for
every legitimate sport. The plan, as
roughly outlined now, would be to have
a park containing a straightaway and
a circular mile track for horses,
a half and a quarter mile bicycle track,
a baseball and football field, facilities
for all kinds of field sports of hand and
foot, training quarters and lodgings, and
eating bouses for tbe accommodation of
all tbe people which auoh an institution
wonld attract. The idea is to make Los
Angeles a Mecca for professional sports
of all legitimate kind, where tbey might
spend each winter in training and par*
ticipation in events of all kinds. The
possibilities of a thing of this kind are
almost limitless.
Rom* Baseball of th* Professional
Tb* Los Angeles league played its two
weekly gameß at Athletic park ye ster
day afternoon before a Urge and enthus
iastic audience. The crowd wonld
bave been larger bad not tbe threaten-
Ing weather kept them away.
But those who stayed away misted
the game of the season in the game be
tween the Wilsons and the Stars, who
pleved a 12 inning game, with the score
4t03 in lavor oi the Wilsons in the
twelfth inning.
It was one of tbe most interesting
games that was ever played in Los An
geles, either by professionals or nuy
The Stars played the best game all
around end should have won tbe game
in tenth inning, bad tbe players run
bases c little better, but both olubs
were worked up to the very pitch of
excitement and some of the players got
rattled, consequently the Wilsons took
advantage of this and won out after 12
hard fought innings.
The game started with both clubs be
ing shut out tbe first two innings. The
Stars managed to score two in tbeir hall
ol the third inning, end the Wilsons got
two in the first half of tbe fourth, which
tied tbe score, and remainod so until
the sixth wbon s two»bagger by Whal

tbe Wilsons. V
The Stars got another in tbe seventh

ficed bim to second and Rogers bring

Vas ielt on base. Then through tbe
terfect fielding of both clubs, neither

Vhlsous managed to score another by

Tver bringing him in with a timely bit.

' In traveling with a person I like one o
two things. He mast have entire respon
slbillty, or I mask Two Is one too many
to run a show..
' I confess - that in traveling I prefer to
run the show myself, and as a nsual thing
I do It exceedingly well, although tbe oth
er follow flOTnettmea will not admit as
ranch, actuated, as I hold, by envy at my
own marvelous grasp of detail.
! .From these introductory remarks you
will undorsterul with what reluctance ]
make the following humiliating confes
slon: .r. ~' T •'- "
' There were two of us, and I waa run
ning the show. • Wo wore at. The Haguo
and were going that night by the Harwich
boat to Loudiiu. Friends strongly advised
us to take an, ezpreee that went through
The Hague to tbo Hook of' Holland, and
there get comfortably settled on the boat.
The express i-aksa only a few minutes
and does - net .■•.top between the capital of
Holland arrt the book thereof. It woe, of
course, the sensible chins to do, but aa I
said, I was running tho show, nnd I
thought I had. a better plan.
"No," said I; "wo will goto Rotter
dam, drive down to tko Harwich boot
from tho station, leave our baggage on
board, find when sho leaves, then tako a
carringo, drive through Rotterdam and see
tho city."
So wo left end reached tho Beurs sta
tion a littlo before 8 o'clock in tho after
noon. I did not know what timo tho Har
wich boat loft Rotterdam, but I know sho
left tho hook at 10:80, and I supposed sho
would leave Rotterdam anywhere between
8 and 0. This would give ub time to sco
tho city and have a good dinner at ono of
the hotels.
On coming out of the Beurs station
there was not a carriago to be scon. Wo
walked along through that city for half un
hour without seeing a single cab plying
for hire. Rotterdam resembles Vonlco in
many respects' but tn none so much as the
luck of publio carriages. Finally wo took
a street car that wont down to tho wharf.
A man who told us what kind of strcel
car to take asked ua if wo intended to go
by the Harwich boat. I answered that wo
"Oh," he said, "I am sure tho Harwich,
boat has gono by this time!"
But that seemed to rai impossible, nnd
sure onough ivhon W3 got off the street car
at the termln;u 1 ';»w ibej flno steamship
Berlin at the jrhurf, and. I could not help
roinarking lo nay companion:
•'lf onoprtSc' tfit.- nt'ton to what everybody
said, one woqJc havo no fun nt all."
"Yes," W£s l,ho roply, "but I notice
they arc unloading this boat, and I think
that if she is going to sail tonight they
would ho putting things on rather than
taking them off."
It struck mo that thoro was some good
old common senso in this remark, und
thero was just a tone of apprehension in
my voice as X bailed a man on deck and
shouted, "When does this boat leave?"
The onswerwosstupefying, "Tomorrow
nigh*:, sir."
"Good gracious!" I cried. "Where is
the hoot that leaves tonight?"
"She left for tho Hook of Hollnnd about
half an hour ago, sir."
"Are there no trains for the Hook of
Holland?" I shouted.
"I think thero are several," he answer
ed. "You csn 2nd oat at tbo Ctintral sta
tion." •* " "•
Now, too Central station «vas at !aa*t
two miles tank end Is oalled fch» Central
because it la cafrtrely outside the town.
"Well," I stun to my comrade, "there
seems to be xi&&lng for it but to go book
to the Con*ia) station, leave our 1 things
there, get dinner and then go down to the
hook. There is certain to be a good hotel
in front of the station; tbere always Is In
European cities."
So we got on the street oar and went
jingling baok through the city.
After awhile I said to the conductor,
"Let mo know when wo oorue to the Cen
tral station, will you?"
Ho answered, "Why did you not tell
me, when you paid your fare, that you
were going to the Central station? Then
I could have given you tickets that would
have taken you through. As It Is, you will
have to get out at: tbe next street corner
and pay your fare.an another ear.."
I was acquiring information rapidly,
but still I was no* pleased.
The other cax.Jook us to the station. I
went to the tloßs* office to make inquiries
about tho Hook.of JSoliand.
. "Oh, you wan* the boat express,"* eeid
the clerk, "that 'leaves at 9 o'clock from
the Beurs station, two miles from here."
. "Is there no other train that goes before
that from this station?"
"Yes, there Is one at 6V30, another at
0:15 and one at 7:51."
"They all reach the hook before the boat
express, I supposef"
[ "Oh, oextadnlyl"
I* 4 'Very well. I will -take twa tickets
pow," end I got thorn.
! "Is there, a good hotel near the the sta
I "There-Is a'buffet In'the station, bnt
If yon want a good dinner you will hay*
to go to one of thejbst olasshotels for it."
"And where.aroitheytv
'""'Down in ;the«enJer : of the town and
at the steamboat landtags."
i "Good heavens!" I exclaimed,,"ls there
pot a hotel nearer than that'"
| "No; thiSjis.thejresident portion of tho
city." •" -tv W
i So I learned. that < Rotterdam differs in
yUlsTespoot tram almost every other city
In Europe. They bavertable d'hoto.ln Rot
rrdatn at tbe somewhat unusual hour of
80, and .by the time we got down town
It was 6. -Soere concluded to go to a res
taurant and' order ..what we wanted. By
this time tbe-person who was with me had
lost all confidence In my knowing any
thing whatever about foreign travel.
The guidebook said that the best cafe
Was in the Arcade, and we mode a tqr for
that Hut the street car conductor put as
on the wrong- trook, and we ultimately
got into a restaurant) that waa exceedingly
second class.
My partner began to be afraid that tbe
111 luck that was following us would ex
tend to Aba wain service, and that we
woult* t»>"t altogether, and so re
fused to search eny longer for the Grande
Xtmayf trite any person who does not
Xa&>t tttf iiaTCWiifoff sfrfrßmsraWirt
tiling to do would have nccn to taxe Citt
boat express at 9 o'clock, which went right
through to the steamer without stopping.
It was just becauso tbis was obviously tho
right thing to do that I did not wish to do
it, and for this reason: Tho boat express
dumps down at tho Hook of Holland somo
hundreds of persons who probably have
not telegraphed for berths. Now, I hod
not telegraphod for a berth, and so I was
anxious to got down to tho boat before the
crowd arrived.
Wo reached tho Central station In good
timo for tho 7:01, tho last train but one
which would reach tho Hook of Holland
from Kottcrdam before tho boat express.
I was so nervous about things by tbis
timo that I thought it right to make a
few inquirios on tho platform. There was
a largo crowd on tbo platform, so I collar
ed a man in uniform and said:
. "From what part of tho platform doea
the train for tho hook loavcf"
"Thero la no train for tho hook,'* lie
answered. •
*'Oh, nonsense!" I replied, >f*l have got
my tlokota for it—tho 7:51."
"The goes to Amsterdam, 1 " replied
tho man.
Here was n fine state of things. I rushed
back to the ticket office.
"Look here," I said, "the fellow on the
platform says that tho 7:61 does not go to
the hook at all."
"Well, yeu tell bim that It does," an
swered the ticket man.
"Are yon oertain it doesf *.
*'Of course I am."
This seemed reassuring, so I went back
and again collared tho man on the plat
form. . .
"The tloket clerk," I said,*"lnsists that
this train does go through to the hook.
Aro you sure there is not a carriage on
that goes that way?"'
"I tell you the whole train," answered
the man, "goes to Amsterdam. It stops
at Schiedam and The Hague and does not
go anywhere near tho Hook of Holland."
Ho was so positive about this thnt.my
faith in tho clerk was once more shaken,
and I rushed back to him.
"You will excuse my bothering yon
again, but this man says that tho wbolo
train goes through to Amsterdam, stop
ping at Schiedam and Tho Hague, and
does not go near tho Hook of Holland.
Now, what have you to say to that?"
"Of course it does not go near the Hook
of Holland. You get off at Schiedam.
Across tho platform you will find another
train that goes to the hook."
"Oh, I see," I replied, much relieved,
"but I think you might have told mo that
My comrade, who had been making in
quiries, having lost all faith in mo, now
approached ond said hurriedly: "Thoy
say this Is the Amsterdam train that is
coming In."
"Oh, that !c ill right," I answered air
ily, waving my hand to intimate that I
know all nbont ts, 'Wo get on this train
and go to Schiijusm. There wo chango
cars and got to tho hook. Don't you both
er. Leave it all to me."
By this time tho long train enmo tear
ing in. The platform man saw U9 board
tho Amsterdam train. He came up to
tho carriage door und snid:
"This won't get you to tho hook, you
I answered in an off hand manner: "You
nro talking through your hat. i'ou don't
understand the running of this line. Wo
get out at Schfedarn and take tho hook
train thero."
By this timo tho train was moving on.
"Very well," ho snid ua ho closed tho
door; "you try it."
This remark did not tend to relievo my
anxiety, and my comrade would not have
been surprised if the train had landed us
in New Tort. We got off at Schiedam,
nnd there, sure enough, on tho other sldo
of tbo platform, was a train waiting. It
was n little troar, with second and third
class carriages in it, fashioned somewhat
oftcr tho American plan.
The Amsterdam express rolled on to
ward Tho Hague, and wo took our seats
on tbo local train.
"I wish I was sure," snid my compan
ion, "that tbis train was going to tho
Hook of Holland."
'■There is nowhere elso for it to go," I
answered loftily. "This lino runs right
along tho river down to tho hook, 60 there
cannot be aDy mistake."
Tho conductor came through and looked
no my tlokots with a mournful expression.
Ifo shook his head colcrnnly as ono who
would say N. G.
"Wh.it Is the roattor?" I asked.
"This train oalygojsns far as Maas
slrds." "
)' a nd ?jow far IS tbat from the hook?"
•'About eight or ten miles," he replied.
"Tho hook Is the next station."
I had o wild Idea of hiring a carriage at
Maasalut* and driving the rest of tho way.
But T realized that tf I conld not get a
oarriago la Hoiierdam I was not likely to
get one In a small village down tho river.
Tn due timo ws resohed fvlaassrals. I had
still another train np my sleeve, which
loft Rotterdam about SO minutes after tho
train wo were on. I bad nut counted on
that train because some nights it got down
before the boat express and some nights
after. However, itwta now our only hope.
When we were turned'off at Maassluis,
there was half an hour to wait. I sought
out a man at this station.
"There is another train for the hook to
night?" I said.
"Two of them," he answered —"the
boat express and the local, but neither of
them stops at this station."
This was the last straw. I broke out
into language that was painful and free.
My last ace was taken by a trump. A
man wbo hoard me talking came up and
asked mo what was ths matter, and I told
bim the situation.
"Oh, you're all right still,'* he said.
"The boat express won't stop, of course,
but if you oak the station master he will
flag the local train, but if the boat express
passes first there will be no use in taking
the other train, for the steamer leaves a
few minutes after the express comes in."
I may state that my hard luck relented
In time, and the.looal train oame first.
Thus we got a stateroom and the boat five
minutes before tbe express came in.—De

"Depend qpcci it, children," said the
benignant old gentleman who was ad
dressing the -Sunday school, "we wero
fashioned by t* wiser power than our
selves. Thero was no mistake made in
putting us together. If our hands were
placed where our feet are and our feet

along? It would be exceedingly awk
ward, children, exceedingly awkward.
I stretch my hand out this way. I move
my fingers like this. Now, what is this

ft Comee From the lfr&rt of tho Flower
Usually, Sometimes Frosa the £.crtvee.
The various delightful or disagreeablo
odors of tho plant family usually reside
in the flower itself, though in some
species the seat is in tho leaves and stem
or even In tho root. In either case tho
odor is due to the prosenco of volatile
essential oils, usually of a resinous na
ture. Tho number of these oils is un
known, and tbeir nature ia so complex
that oven a slight variation in the tem
peratnro or in the quantity of light
falling upon them is sufficient to cause
a rearrangement of thoir component el
ements, resulting, so far as the smell is
concerned at least, iv an entirely differ
ent compound.
Prophylio ether, wbioh is an exam
ple of these unstable compounds, can,
by a slightly different arrangement of
ita elements, be made to yield either tho
odor of pineapples or that of decaying
fish. The reason, therefore, why each
species and kind of a plnnt has a differ
ent odor is the ease with which one per
fume may be transformed into another.
Sufficient cause for such transition is
often found in tho modo of life of each
variety of plant and the alfT/jreiw in
thoir chemical constitution.
Whatever in any way affects the life
« growth of a plant rapidly shows its
effeot upon the flower and its perfume.
The nature of the soil and its humidi
ty, the variation of temperature or the
intensity of the sunlight will sooner or
later transform the entire nature of a
plant, for, as has been fully shown
above, one plant, in order to produce
exactly the same perfume as another,
must not only bo of the same species,
but live in the same elements, earth,
air, etc. It must also absorb a similar
amount of light and breathe the same,
which would, of course, necessitate
leaves similar in size, color and shape.

Slumber Begim at tile Feet, and the Senses
llccouie Dormant One After Another.
"Order is'heaven's first law," and
tho old truth is manifested even in tho
process of going to sleep. When a man
drops off to sleep, his body does not do
so all at once, so to Somo senses
become dormaut before others and al
ways in tho same order. As ho becomes
drowsy tho eyes close, and the sonso of
soeing is at rest. It is quickly followed
by the disappearance of the sense of
taste. He next loses tho senso of smell,
and then after a short interval the tym
panum becomes insensible to sound, or
rather tho nerves which run to tho brain
from it fail to arouse any sense of hear-
Tho last sentso to loave is thnt of
touch, and in somo hypersensitive peo
ple it is hardly over dormant. Even in
thoir case, however, thero is no discrim
inating power or sense of what touched
them. This sense is also tho first to re
turn upon awakening. Then hearing fol
lows suit, after that taste, and then the
eye becomes able to flash impressions
back to tho brain. Tho senso of snieil,
oddly enough, though it is by no moans
tho lirst to go, is tho last to como back.
Tho same gradual loss of power is ob
served in the muscles and sinews na
well as in the senses. Slumber liegins
at tho feet and slowly spreads up tho
limbs and trunk until it reaches tho
brain, when unconsciousness is complete
aud tho whole body is tit rest. This is
why sleep is impossible when the feet
aro cold.—Now York World.
