Earlham Will Lose But One of
Her Basket Ball Stars
By Graduation.
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

blood, Carrol, Hedder and Swaim are

tlethwaite is throwing the hammer
around 120 consistently and is pressed
by Harrell, Lindley and Jones, who
are hovering around the century
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,

stood for the best in men's hatwear
honest materials, best workmanship, and

quality of being weather-proof i rom the
Cravenette process, which makes a

League Will Be Formed
In the Spring.
The Cty base ball league is pro
gressing nicely and will probably be
fully organized by the last of the
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.
Uhrichsville, Ohio, League Po

pearance Wednesday.
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 performed the marriage cere

Polo Aggregations in the City
League Have Secured
New Players.
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.
B. D. Game Purchases Inter

In Railraad Store.
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?

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. Ixndon Graphic.
