He was fo cnroltBK tliut he was In

time nnd he piled up so many comlt
tiuns that he never got his dhplomn
He was n star football mini On the
owiiMint of this game with Harvard
Smith came on the Held with the laces
of his canias jacket dangling loosely
around hit neck The captain spoke to
11 in ill 0 it them but Smlth snld
li let them go they wont harm
niii body
The tenuis were pretty evenly
matched 11 ml neither side scored In
the first half We made up qurmlndi
that we must score In the second half
At the end of 13 minutes we had the
bull In the center of the fleltl Jt vras
pasied back to our left halt back and
he In turn passed It To Smith who was
playing end rush Smith started for
the Hanard goal with tho ball unoer
his arm mid in Irm time than it takes
to tell It ho had dodged the entire liar
lard team and had 11 clear Held before
lm The Hnriard quarter back who
wns a star runner however was nftir
him hot foot The quarter back gained
so that he reached out one hand to
tackle Smith but he could get no huld
on the back of his enuvas Jacket Sitiith
wits approaching the goal rapidly and
It looked n Hire touchdown Just
ns he renched Harvards ten yard line
wc saw thnt tin quarterback had suc
ceeded In getting n grip on hs Jacket
and on tho the yard line Smith iias
downed ii ml in falling be dropped the
1 all The quarter back picked It up
rail carried It well up Into our terii
tory before he was downed
Then we dIcovered why Smith had
clled to make a touchdown The laces
of his Jacket which had been hanging
loosely had been blown back over hl
houldi r and tho Harvard quarter had
succeeded In getting a Rrlp on them
in Midi n fashion that when hepullei
Smith was rhrkrd to n standstill The
game closed without either side scor

We used to make it a point to hare
the giant carry the umbrella In every
town we struck whether It r 1 -d or
not lie used to turn out nm walk
with tho show and walkii llifnd
him we alWaVs had tttt hieii I ying
Hit- umbrella rolled up and tfUi j um
brella case on It these men walking
five on a side and carrying it lying
along on sticks that they held by the
ends This always used to excite in
terest because people always wondered
vhat tie men were carrying but the
sight didnt begin to excite the inter
est that was felt when they discovered
what It was and saw the giant raise it
This of course he couldnt do tn
the street on account of the trees as
a rule the giant opened the umbrells
tn the public square of the town When
we came to that the procession would
halt and tho giant would step out from
It and step AVer the fence br the orna
mental gateway or entrance or1 arch or
whateter there was there If there was
one we always stopped so that the
giant would be opposite II and then
the men would walk in with the um
brella and stand beside him They
would lift it up on the carrying piece
as high as they could and then the
giant would bend down and take It
lie would draw off the case tEat cov
ered it which was something like a
wlndsall only many times larger and
of course made tapering and roll It up
nnd put it In his pocket and that made
a wad aa big as a bale of hay but it
didnt bulge out in hlB pocket enough
ro t youd notice It And then hed
hold the Umbrella by tho handle with
one hand point up and shake it out
as anybody does an umbrella thats
been rolled up tightly before they open
It nnd then hed set out to raise It with
the other hand in the customary man
By this time of course every body In
the cr6wri around would know what tt
was and It was fun to see em look at
it and I dont wonder I never alto
gether lost Interest In it myself be
caure when the giant held It up before
opening it the umbrella was about tin
shape nnd site of a church steeple and
as 11 matter of fact it waa often blgget
than the church steeple that happened
to be on the other side of that particu
lar given Hut when he came to open
It nnd they saw the spread of It
well at one time and auothel
the show- had a great many striking
features but 1 dont think we ever had
among our own minor attiactlons II
we did I certnlnlydont recall It at thin
minute ony single feature that was
more striking than that X YSun
