Burns it was ar mied mat stage fright had robbed Squires of his dash and fighting intelli gence, and that he might do immeas jirahly better on a second trial. lie didn't improve when sent iigitinst Jack (Twin) Sullivan and Jim Flynn in turn. Now the sports are saying 'it will be the same with Lang. It would be only a waste of time trying him out further.' "This is rather rough on Lang, but 2 the kind of reasoning that might hare been looked for. For Lang's sake it is to be hoped he will be given other thanees to show his mettle. "Writing, of Lang, Squires brings memories of the old. time Australian heavyweights who came to this coun try, and impresses us with the fact that the land of the kangaraoo is not devel oping high class ringmen at present. It certainly is not sending forth any wbrld-beaters. "The question is often asked who of ' all th Australian, heavies did the best work in the United States. The palm, beyond a doubt, must be awarded to Bob Fitzsimnions, but at the same time U is well to remember that he had more opportunities of showing his worth than any of the others. "Bob came to us a middleweight and stayed with us. ' ' fTe worked forward gradually to the front ranks of his profession. He figured in some sensational encounters, and provided both the ring-going and fight-reading publie with more genuine entertainment than any ringman who flourished eoteniporary with him. "Peter Jackson was only with us for a brief season and he was probably a little past his prime as a" ring athlete when he first; came. He whipped George Godfrey. Patsey Cardiff and Joe iMc Auliffe, without turning a hair, and ho would have made things interesting for John L. Sullivan if Sullivan had given him a ehance. Peter was too fond of London to remain long in this country, and London, proved his undoing. "Frank Slavin was a typical Austra lian bruiser, and Joe Goddard was an other. Slavin did most of his fighting in Ergland and Australia. He made brief visits to New York when in his prime, and gave samples of his prowess in short bouts there. "He was never much good after the gruelling he engaged in with Peter Jackson in England, and when he came to this country later, to follow the fighting game his stamina was impair ed and he fell an easy victim to the third-rate man. "Goddard was a human bulldog and anything but a brilliant performer. He aa poison to an opponent who was inferior to him in animal eourge. "One of the cleverest of the Austra lian contingent was Jim Hall, but he did not make much headway on this side. Jim created a furore the night ne wag first tried out at the old Cali fornia Club in San Francisco. His op ponent was Alex. Oreggains, who was one of the best boxers among the coast heavyweights at the time. "Hall made Greggains look like a dunce. He sparred on the crescendo principle warming up with each round, and by the time the th'.rd round was over Greggains was completely bewil dered. The club members were as tounded at the tall Australian's clever ness and great things were predicted w Jim. ' Somehow he failed to make good." Some Timely Football Advice By John B. roster. Merely because the rules in football have been changed, do not sit dejected ly in a corner and insist that football can not be played and no good ?ome out of the rules because thev revolution ize some of the theories which h-ve been held as to the sport. Football will be played and a game will be evolved from the present rules which sooner or later will find its ad vocates and admirers as previojs changes in the fall sport have found their advocates and admirers. The coaches and players who go to sleep over the new game or those who stubbornly refuse to accept its changes will be hardest hit at the end of the season, and negligence on their part in taking advantage of all that is offered to them in 1910 may set their teams back to great disadvantage in 1911. After working through the rules care fully it would appear that the game which must first be tried under the new code w-ill have to deal largely with at tempts to circle the ends and plunge through the lines for sharp gains. Some have confused the rule in regard to as sisting the man who is carrying the ball and imagine that it will curtail line work. t On the contrary, the game is exaetly as it always was in that respect, ex cept that the runner must not be as sisted by being grabbed, as it were, by his own teammates. Openings may be made for him to get through the line. Interference may be employed to assist him in getting around the line, but the other players must keep their "hands off '' his body. So far as the actual fact of advancing the ball is concern ed, the runner must act upon his own individuality. In the early part of the season it is the expectation that more running plays will be employed by coaches than has been customary in three or four sea sons. Seven men on the scrimmage line may mean a strong primary defense, but it must not be forgotten that the attack can scatter and still be more effective than it was in former days, because the ball can be snapped direct ly back from center to any one of the backs. The first coach to develop a first-class center, who is proficient in snapping back the ball as well at an angle as in a straight line, and who is equally good in holding his own in defense, will pave the way for a sys tem of attack which shall be as diver sified as there are men in the back field, increased four fold by reason of the changes which may be effected by al ternating the plays. Teach every player on the eleven the cardinal principles of blocking runners by the use of the body. Teach systems whereby the man running with the ball may not only be attended Wr'ith good interference. The backs who are lleet and agile and who can dodge well are apt to make trouble in the new game. Unquestionably there will be a great use of the forward pass, because it has been almost placed on a par with punt ing the. ball. The forward pass will be discussed in the next article and some thing of its value estimated. MACK DIRECTS TEAM By TWIST OF CARD No One .Gets Wise to Signals of American Champion's Manager. JACK JOHNSON'S BELT MAY COST $50,000 NEW YORK, September 24.-" The Jack Johnson diamond subscription fund belt" is the alphabetical proces sion used to designate and describe a trophy and bit of wearing apparel. ' It is to be given to the present heavy weight champion when a committee composed of Baron Wilkins, D. E. Tobias and Henry C. Parker of this city have amassed a sufficient subscrip tion from those of Jack Johnson's race who desire to contribute. The design of the proposed belt makes it a gorgeous, sumptuous and costly edifice. In fact, its proposed worth in coin of the republic is said j to exceed $23,000, with the possibility j of a $.)0,000 achievement. A firm of I jewelers in Baltimore has received an order for the building of the belt. When the money for the purpose has been gathered it is planned that the city making the largest share of the fund will stage the presentation banquet. According to descriptions the belt has some of the qualities of a patent household utensil. You can make it do 'most anything except "play dead." In its construction over 2000 penny weights of gold will be used, if esti mates are accurate. It will be four feet long, twelve inches wide and made of solid gold. Its center piece of key stone, is to be an eagle of diamonds with platinum settings. The bird is to grip a diamond of 4 carats, which can be used as a "ring, stud or pin." combination mountings going with the belt. Even the entire twinkling bird may be removed and worn as a "brooch, pendant or la valliere. " On either side of the center piece are to be miniatures of the fighter himself, one showing him in fighting clothes and the other in' a dress suit. The shield of the United States is also to appear, and so is a revolving globe showing all the countries of the earth. One can spin that globe. Last, but far from least, the cham pion's cello is to rise unabashed in mute gold. A hasty inspection of the design would also disclose wishbones, four-leaf clovers, punching bags, horse shoes, boxing gloves, ad libitum. It is gravely announced that the design is copyrighted. In the meantime Jimmy Britt is said to be arranging a series of bouts for Johnson in England, and it is expected that the champion, will acquire much easy money there, in Paris and later in Australia. . ...

McKay Olay of Penn sylvania having resigned and Theodore S. King of California having been elect ed in his place. The new captain played a tine game in left tackle last season, and is also one of the best oarsmen in the academy. Clay is likely to continue as a member of the squad. CHICAGO, September 24. Did you ever watch Connie Mack, manager of the Athletics, idling with a score card! says Bill Daily. Well, you probably will if you attend t he world 's series. For Connie and his score card aro bound to be features. You know a score card is all that Connie uses in direct ing his team. That is, when the team is on the field. Of course if the Athletics are at bat and he wants to switch to a pinch hitter the men are where he can tell them. But Connie is not one of the managers who don a uniform and get on the coaching line. Not-be. He .purchases a 5-eent score card, gets in a corner of the bench and from there directs the play. What are his signals? I don't know. No one knows save the nienubers of his team, for if any one else possessed the information the signals would be valueless and would be changed. But you may bet they are simple. And any time- that he carelessly strokes his cheek with that card the -chances are that he is informing the man at the plate that a bunt would be the thing. And so on down the list of signals that, every team :pQ????egs ; The? f6oifed Murphy. They tell an excellent story of Presi dent -Murphy of the Cubs. ""When the Athletics were through here the Cub president had an idea that he would like to look over the men who were then figured to participate in the world's series. Murphy also had heard this story of the horrible execution that Connie and his score card haa been doing all summer long. The West Side magnate was sitting in John T. Brush's automobile and since it faced the Athletic players' bench, why the two could watch Connie Mack without exciting his attention. Murphy saw Connie Mack carelessly stroke his right cheek with the score card. Almost instantly Harry Davis left first base and consulted with the manager. "We have that signal down," began Murphy to Brush. There were Sox runners on second and first. Then thev saw Connie Mack tdt his .straw hat slightly with the end of the program. "Wonder what that was for?'' queried the Chicago magnate of the New York owner. "Must have been signaling the pitcher," was the reply. Just then the Sox batter cut loose a fast line drive at Eddie Collins. The second -baseman grabbed it on the run, stepped over and touched second base and completed a double play. A ell. we caught that one all right," laughed Murphy. "Yes," answered Brush. "Any time that Connie tilts his hat with his score THESE SPORTS PASSED The Fiji Times of September 2S says: Suva sports were treated to an ex hibition of scientific boxing on Monday night by several world's champion who are en route per R. M. S. Zealandia to Australia. The men were Billv Srtl (middleweight champion of the Which was about as near the truth I world)' J'"1' Clabby, Ray Bronson, as anv one ever came in guessing the and "Cyclone" Johnny Thompson. The signals of Connie Mack Never Changes Expression. The Athletic leader is a wonder, though. One day he was sitting on the bench and Bender was coaching at third ( three latter are lightweight champions of America and the party are under the care of Mr. T. S. Andrews, sporting edi tor of The Evening Wisconsin. During the evening each in turn boxed Fijians, with his face turned to the manager 's ! and, needless to state, were far too su coop. After watching the Indian for a perior for their colored opponents, while the impression prevailed that j Papke shows exceptionally able style, Bender was out there- taking the signals of the manager and then relaving t-hera to the man at the plate. The leader of the Athletics certainly has a ipoker face. You may watch him from the time the game begins until it is over and you will never see a change of expression. Tn the world's series he may become a 'bit enthusiastic or a bit excited if things are going his way and he may display a bit of anger ,if the tide is going against the Ath letics. But he never has so far. Usually he sits at one corner of the players' bench, idling with that score card, directing the play of his team with never the change of an expression, RANELAGH POLO TEAM : BEATS ALL-AMERICAN MONTREAL, September 24. The Ranolagh polo. team four defeated the All-Canadian team Friday by a seore of 12 goals to 3 on the field here. The famous English players were at their best. The twin Grenells combined for a dashing game, and. helned out with the long hits and off riding of the Earl of Roeksavage, the trio kept the All Canadians out of scoring distance most of the time. and should beat all before him in Aus tralia. The rest of the party will no doubt find at least several good men to oppose them in the Commonwealth. The boxers are under engagement to Mr. Hugh Mcintosh. Mr. Corbett, sport ing editor of The Referee, refereed the bouts. ii .. . .r raiser PHILADELPHIA, September 23 Ramsdell, the intercollegiate sprinting champion, was a welcome addition to the Pennsylvania football squad at Franklin field Thursday1 afternoon, par ticularly as there is a scarcity -of good backfieid candidates.

E. B. Butler, who won the' single sculls at the Middle States Regatta in Philadelphia, is going to the English Henley next year. Joe Wright stated that the of ficers of the club had made this final. Hurler's showing this year has been verv classy, and he is considered by manv to be as good as any man in America. Butler's work this year at the Canadian Henley was some of the best sculling that has been seen on that course for a long time, and he has been improving in his work right along. He wanted to go to the Middle States Re fatra n purpose to show that the beat iW he got at Washington was a fluke, and he proved it, which shows the stuff he is made of. Butler will go early to the old coun try and it is the intention to send a trainer along with him. Butler is strong and well built for a sculler, lie has tremendous speed in his boat and mentis verv neat'.v. This year he was prett vsiek about two weeks before the Canadian Henley, and this set him back in his trair.insi.W he showed his class liv beating Smith of Boston, who was ,-oni.lered ery dangerous, and had been training for three months to win this een'. Lumbago la a Form of Muscular Rheu matism and Is Readily Cured by the Treatment Which Is Conquering Rheumatism Everywhere. Although luuihaw occurs in almost any walk of life it is ehiedy a diseaseot work ing men among whom it numlers thou sands of victims. As its attacks recur frequently and arc very painful, this dis ease means the loss of much time and money as well as the enuuranee of much surlering. No victim of this disease needs to be told that it docs not yield to the treatment usually prest-i iU'd. The trouble being in the blood, Jinimt-nts and exter nal applications of any kind simpjy allay the pain lor a brief time and the patient soon sulU-rs a badly as lefore. Lumbago is sudden in its attack and is so intensely painful that the sufferer is Oiten unable to move, even to turn in U-d or t rise from a chair. The correct treatment is the same as for muscular rheumatism and the ease with which tl .s painiul disease may be overcome when it is properly treated is illustrated by the ease of Mr. T. P.
