FA.iitS TWO. PROSPECTS ARE BRIGHT FOR TEAM Earlham Will Lose But One of Her Basket Ball Stars By Graduation. OTHER SCHOOL ATHLETICS. AS SOON AS THE PRESENT BAS KET BALL SEASON IS CLOSED, BASEBALL AND TRACK- WORK WILL OCCUPY ATTENTION. With Earlham college just closing v,hat ia doubtless the best season of basket ball ia its history, it may be haid that the prospects are exceeding ly bright for next year's work la this line, as Capt. Chambers is tho only player who will graduate this.-spring. This leaves Hotchkiss and White, forwards; Genn, Overman and Lind ley, centers and Wilson, Hancock and Newsome, guards, among the men who have played on tho varsity this jear. Besides tbo above there remain Swaim, Harrell, Conrad and Walthall, of the Reserves. The Reserves have made the varsity hustle to keep ahead and have frequently beaten them in practice games. Earlham's record this year has been a good one, as the following scores will show, the Quaker score being giv en first. The only game not Included is that of Friday night of this week with St. Mary's college at Dayton, O.: aiiami, 36-25; DePauw, 11-24; Witten berg, 6:i-l.'i; Butler, 29-21; Rose Poly, S;5-48; State Normal, SS-2I; De Pauw, 2S-22; Purdue (Big Nine rules) 15-29; total 233-206. But oiie more game remains on the schedule Rose Poly at Richmond on the night of March 6th. This game should be a spirited contest. Rose Poly has not lost a game to any sec ondary college in Indiana this year, but if Earlham wins on March 6, the title will lie between the Engineers and the Quakers. Will Call Track Candidates. As soon as basket ball is over Capt. White will call the track candidates together and regular systematic train lag will start. At the present time everything looks favorable for a look in at the I. C. A. I championship. White, Conrad, Roberts, Tnieblood, Francis and Naney are all clearing the bar around five feet and chafing at Coach Vail's restraining hand for he won't allow them to try for height un til more perfect in form and hardened up. In the pole vault, Hancock, Roberts, Conrad. Walthall, Chappell, True blood, Carrol, Hedder and Swaim are gradually rounding Into shape). This- tlethwaite is throwing the hammer around 120 consistently and is pressed by Harrell, Lindley and Jones, who are hovering around the century mark. Pennington and Guyer are already doing about forty and find that they must work to keep ahead of Walthall, White, Genn, Wann, Thistlethwaite and Overman. . The dashes will be well looked after by Elliott, Conrad, Wann, Francis, Hawkins and Roberts. James Sullivan Was One of Richmond's Best Known Citizens. A LONG TIME RESIDENT.

The Cty base ball league is pro gressing nicely and will probably be fully organized by the last of the month. Several teams have signified their intention of taking the field and pros pects for good amateur sport seems assured. The Kibbey Athletic club and the Iioosier Drill Co., are ready to take the field at nearly any time. The Starr Piano company, Pogue-Miller and East Haven will probably cast their lot with the organization, and a eixth team will be represented. A meeting of the managers will be held some time next week and the league perfected. The league will be Com posed strictly of amateurs, of which their is a large number. A schedule of aboil t twenty games has been ar ranged. The teams will be pretty evenly matched and a good chase for the pennant is expected. EXPECT GREAT GAME Uhrichsville, Ohio, League Po lo Team, to Make Its Ap pearance Wednesday. OLD STARS TO BE HERE. Wednesday the Uhrichsville, O. polo team of the Ohio league will be the attraction at the Coliseum. The Buck eye pellet pushers will bring a fast bunch along and the locals will have to hump to win. "Sox" Quigley, who played on the locals the tirst part of the season will be on the rush line with "Pop" Roberts, formerly of the Elwood Western league team. "Spot" Hadly, an ex-Quaker, will play center. Ball, a Muncie player, will form the second defense, and Maay will guard the cage. The locals will use their regular lineup. The Kibbeys and Greeks are sched uled to play the curtain raiser and a large crowd of enthusiastic fans is ex pected to attend. Richmond's tasto of good polo, when Marion, O., played here, still lingers and fans are enthusiastic over j the appearance of Uhrichsville. Beecher's Weeding Fees. When Collis P. Huntington was mar ried for the second time Henry Ward Beecher performed the marriage cere mony. Huntington's first wife had been dead less than a year, and he de sired the second marriage kept secret until his return from Europe. He gave Mr. Beecher a marriage fee of $1,500. When Huntington returned some months later he wpnt through a pub lic ceremony, and Beecher again offici ated. He gave Beecher another fee of $ 1.500.

The promoters of the City I'olo league have decided to continue the schedule, making a series of ten games for each club. Several changes have been made in the various line-ups and all teams seem fctronger than before. The Kibbeys, now leading the percent age column will continue with their present lineup. The Crescents will be weakened by the loss of Norman, their strongest defense man and the Greeks and Beallviews will have prac tically their former aggregations. The Empires have secured Lancaster, the I crack Koal guardian of the Krones, j and will bid high for a first division ' berth. The Krones have rejuvenated ' and seem greatly strengthened on the rush line by the landing of Sharp of Beallvlew. With Meyers and Sharp on the rush line, Kettler at the center, I Swain, half, and Ryan in front of the ! cage, the tailors should finish well up. The report to the effect that Beall ; view and the Krones will be dropped from tho league seems to have no foundation whatever. A BUSINESS CHANGE B. D. Game Purchases Inter est of Partner E. E. Brown In Railraad Store. TO CONTINUE AS MANAGER. An important change in department store affairs takes place today when 15. D. Game, who for the past six years has been( connected with the Kail Road Store, and who has been president and general manager since the store was incorporated, has pur chased the interest of his partner, E. E. Brown. Mr. Brown, who will re tire and sever his connection with the store in a short time, has given out no Information as to his plans for tho future. Mr. Game will continue as general manager. Assisting Mr. Game will be Will Klopp, who has been identified with the Itail Road Store for nearly eight years. Mr. Klopp has purchased stock iu the store and in addition to adver tising, he will take charge of the dry goods and basement departments. An English custom of not so long ago was to haug smugglers on gibbets ar ranged along the coasts and then tar the bodies that they might be preserved a long while as a warning to other cul prits. As late as 1822 three men thus varnished could have been seen hang ing before Dover castle. Sometimes the process was extended to robbers, assassins, incendiaries and other crimi nals. John Painter, who fired the dock yard at Portsmouth, was first hanged and then tarred in 177G. From time to time he was given a fresh coat of var nish and thus was made to last nearly fourteen years. The weird custom did not stop smuggling or other crime, but no doubt it worked some influence ns a preventive. "Touching: Wood." Can any reader explain the origin of touching wood after boasting of one's exemption from ill fortune? a species of absit omen practised in Shropshire and Cheshire and probably in many other parts of England. The procedure is of this kind. "I'm thankful to say I never broke a bone or even bad a bad sprain in my life well, I'd better touch wood," and a chair or table or anything near that Is wooden is touch ed. Can the custom come from some lingering memory of the veneration at- i tached to relics of the true cross? London Notes and Queries. Tonrhtnar a Button. Wife I've just been reading an ar ticle on electricity, John, and it ap pears that before long we shall be able to get pretty well everything we want by just touching a button. IIus- i band You'd never be able to get any thing that way. Wife Why not, John? Husband Because nothing on earth would ever make you touch a button. Look at my shirt!

All plants are provided with Cowers. though sometimes these are so small , and so bidden as to escape notice. The bleedjng heart, according to an eastern legend, originated in the drops of blood which fell from Christ's side at , the crucifixion. . Every flower that has s perfume at all secretes a volatile oil, the evapora- i tion of wh!rt constitutes the peculiar j odor characteristic of the blossom. j The smallest flower known to the ' botanist is said to be that of the yeast plant. It is microscopic in size and is said to be only one-hundredth of a mil limeter In diameter.

A Turkish Story. The Turk, as a rule, is not energetic. but he Is capable of sudden bursts of activity. A writer in Cassell's Family Magazine gives an illustration: 1 lie was going home late one night in Constantinople wheu a man ran by him, pursued by four zaptiehs. Direct ly they caught the man they belabored him vigorously with the butt ends of their guns. The Englishman inter- ( fere.l. ' ' "If he is a thief, why not take hira : to prison and let him be tried properly? , Dou't half kill the man without a fla1 " I "O effendi," said the spokesman of the party, "we don't mind his being a thief. We're only hitting him because of the trouble he gave us to run after him." And that is an offense which the average Turk never forgives. The Catlike Fox. The fox is an excellent mouser. lie will lie and watch for a field mouse in the long grass like a cat, pounce upon it, kill it with a bite and lay it oa one side until he has caught another and another, when, picking them all up, as many as be can carry in his mouth, he will canter away with them to serve them out to the cubs. This fact was confirmed by witnesses iu Scotland who were examined by a committee of the board of agriculture when taking evidence on the occasion of the plague of field voles on the lowland sheep farms in 1803.
