Manager Jones Makes a Correction—J. P. Ross
Made the Longest Goal on Record
in the World.
In the Auburn-Vanderbllt football game
at Nashville last Saturday Connell, one of
the Vanderbilt players, kicked the ball
from the thirty yard line, which the
Nashville American claims was the long
est ever made In the south. It seems that
the American has not kept up with rec
ords in that line made in the past. Man
ager Sid B. Jones of the Birmingham
Athletic football team, having his atten
tion called to the article, addressed the
following letter to the American:
Birmingham, Nov. 11.
The Nashville American, Nashville,
Dear Sirs: I notice in your issue of
Sunday, November 10, In report of the
Auburn-Vanderbllt game, played In
Nashville Saturday, reference Is made to
Connell’s great drop kick for a goal from
the thirty-yard line, which was the sec

only two that have ever been made In the
In a game between the Birmingham
'Athletic cluo and University of Alabama
on the Birmingham Athletic club grounds
Dt Birmingham, Ala., November 12, 1892,
J. P. Ross, playing full back for us, made
a goal from the sixty-flve-yard line, win
ning the game by a score of 5 to 4. This
kick was not assisted by the wind In the
least,'and Is the longest on record In the
Yale, I think It was. some time after
wards In a game with Princeton, made a
goal from the fifty-yard line and claimed
the world's record for it, but a college
paper published at Vanderbilt or Sewanee
(I have forgotten which now) backed up
Boss' kick. The New York papers and
a great many of the principal papers In
the United States contained an account
of It at the time. Yours truly,
Manager Foot Ball Team.

chrysanthemums. The parlor was aglow
with these yellow and white blossoms,
and smilax. The mantel was banked with
them and tables held vases of these beau
tiful flowers. The library was adorned
with pink chrysanthemums and dark
green foliage: the stair case was lovely
in yellow chrysanthemums, and the din
ing room was decorated with the same
blossoms in white and yellow. On tables,
mantel and In every available place their
spicy fragrance whispered stories of far
away Japan. The table in the dining
room held handsome candelabra, ex
quisite embroideries and cut glass vases
filled with great bunches of yellow chry
santhemums. The punch room was gay
with ruddy, autumn leaves and Japanese
lanterns. There were delicious refresh
ments served during the evening, and
nothing was wanting to make the en
tertainment one of the most charming
receptions of this or any other season.
There was music throughout the evening.
Mrs. Crulkshank wore a beautiful and
' very becoming gown of violet velvet and

low or wrinkled face,
dull eyes and hollow
cheeks, together with
low spirits, follow the derangements, irreg
ularities and weaknesses peculiar to the
sex. All women require a tonic and nervine
at some period of their lives. Whether suf
fering from nervousness, dizziness, faint
ness, displacement of womanly organs, ca
tarrhal inflammation of the lining mem
branes, bearing-down sensations, or general
debility, Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription
reaches the origin of the trouble and cor
rects it. It’s a medicine which was discov
ered and used by an eminent physician for
many years in all cases of ,T female com
plaint,” and those painful disorders that
afflict womankind. If women are over
worked, run-down, tired or sleepless, if
they are irritable, morbid and suffer from
back-ache, they should turn to the right
means for a permanent cure. Dr. Pierce’s
Favorite Prescription fits just such cases,
for it regulates and strengthens the special
functions, builds up and invigorates the en
tire female system.
