Hart. Editor. s M Rutherford, Business Manager. John S. Fltzglbbons. City Editor. A CURE FOR SWEARING. One of the most common tilings among the men and boys of the present day. is profanity. The six-year-old boy is just as "classic" as the veteran who emphasizes the expression of his thoughts by the use of profanity. There is to be a substitute for all this profanity and its advent and practice may make the human race better than it is under the old regime. The Indianapolis Sun has the following to say in commenting: on the new substitute: The British National association for the suppression of bad langauge is compiling a dictionary of "innocuous expletives" and will seek to' in troduce them into common use in pb.ee of swear-words. . . . i i , i , n It is said that when the work is such beauteous expressions as these: "crickev." "fudge." "my " tK Of course, these sro nr.lv n fW sm character, not of the resources, of the sounds are available for this purpose. All will admit that swearing is a bad habit. In all ages all philosoph ers have condemned profanity as useless, vulgar and foolish. Logic and eloquence alike have proved vain in combating the tendency of over wrought human nature to vent its feelings through oaths. Even the 'most inveterate user of cuss-words will freely admit that their use is silly, though in the next breath he may swear. But with this list of "my eye,:' "tush" and "wow" before us as an alternative, we are apt to change attitude and regard the good, old, round cuss-words as dignified and virtuous. This association's theory is very good. The best remedy for swear ing is the adoption of substitute words. But the association seems to have overlooked the fact that substitutes may be more silly than the original. It would be impossible to invent any form of speech that is not less vulgar than profanity. But we mn:t remember that the purpose o. speech is to express feeling, not to conceal it. And where there is vul garity of mind there is bound to be vulgarity of speech. - - : "Wow," "gee" and "crickey" sound harmless enough because they mean nothing to us. But if we should become accustomed to. their com mon use in expression of the feelings now expressed in euss-Avords they would be just as vulgar in our ears as the words they replace. After all, the most important objection to profanity applies also and with equal force to slang and every sort of handy expletive. We fall into the way of using them on all occasions, becoming careless of clean and ac curate expression, and thus lose power to speak calmly and clearly. Oaths and all their substitutes arc the paupers of speech. , . The people who live in Ossian subscribe for and read their home paper. This is very commendable on their part. They not only subscribe but they pay in advance because the publisher promises many good things. . . - In a recent issue he says: "If you pay in advance for The News you are safe from all trials and troubles. You will not have rheumatism, you will be safe from law suits. Every egg will hatch next spring-, and the chickens will -be free from lice. If you fall in the creek yon will come out with a pocket full of fish. If some fellow shakes five aces you will tie him. Your wife won't have a single freckle on her nose next summer, and next fall when she goes to see her mother in Kansas, the school ma'am will board at your house. Every horse will get killed on the railroad the day he is thirty years old. You will have more money than some people have corn fodder. We guarantee all this and more, to all new subscribers. Get in line, all who are heavy laden and we will do the rest." A SUBLIME EXPRESSION. Senator Fairbanks used the following expression in his Panama speech: "Who doubts, in the presei t condition of affairs, that the Pana ma canal will be built? It will have back of it the best pledge any vast undertaking can have, for it will have the assurance of the United States." t ; '$UP This is a climax worthy of Webster, Blaine or Garfield. The whole speech is stamped with the Senator's personality and his profound legal knowledge. It leaves no doubt as to his attitude toward the position of the pres ent administration in the Panama affair. This speech is the clear-cut, logical thought of the statesman and can scarcely be comprehended by the peanut politician. When Governor Taft reached Washington, he was escorted from the railway station to the war department by a detachment of cavalry. Some body has discovered that this is not in accord with American plainness. Governor Taft has been, in a sense, a military officer ever since he left the Judge Artman of the Boone circuit court, in his recent decision, has made himself "solid" with the Democrats. All the Democratic papers are vieing with one another to see which can speak the most complimen tarv thing about him. United States and he came home to be at. the head of the war department and it seems very fitting that he should have this mark of honor. State of Ohio, City of Toledo, Lucas County, ss. Frank J.

At last the mystery is explained, them? A professor has found out why we r In football, whether you are play enjoy watching a game of football, ing or looking on, all the higher parts It is because we are reminded of the long ages ago when our forefathers had to run here and there to dodge the wild animals of the forest. The name of the professor is G. T. W. Patrick. His ideas are published in the last number of the American Journal of Psychology. It is not likely that the crowds at the football games will be any bigger or any smaller because of what Professor Patrick says, but his theory is a new one and rather interesting. A football game, he says, is noth ing but an imitation of the most sav age life. It represents a lower state ( of human beings than prize fighting does, because it represents brute. f. ...... .. til .IV, cl.-ll I , , i It shows how the earliest savages, , , , n , . -xi . had to fight for their lives withou i , t. anv weapons of stone or iron, it pie- ,1.1 .... lilies uie wiij 11111, uirj tiuuiutu mi der a bush or behind a rock and then suddenly dashed out and grabbed a niece of meat from a wolf or from ome other savage. A game of football is really a drama of savage life, says this pro fessor. The grabbing and holding tight of the ball, the race for safety, .he fierce pursuers, the mad scrim mage, the crash of one strong body i gainst another, the limp, motionless bodies of the injured players al. these show how the first savages had o struggle for life in those cruel ages when there was very little kind ness and very little reasoning in the world. But. why are these imitations of the brutal life of savages so popular at our colleges where the students are supposed to be trained out of every thing that is savage and barbaroi, This is easily explained,. says Pri fessor Patrick. What students want is recreation. Recreation means change. And what greater change for their minds and bodies can they get than a game of football can giy Thursday. Indianapolis at Marion.

The Indians had several good chances to score, but failed to do so. They couldn't get together just right. Two of Indian apolis' goals were accidents, credited to Jessup. At the end of the first period the score stood 3 ;to 4 in favor of Rich mond, no goal was scored in the sec ond period, but each team scored one in the third. The game was full of incidents Several of the players fell a number of times, skates were broken, and Cone was knocked out by a blow in the stomach from a ball driven by Murtaugh, became unconscious and had to be carried from the floor. This occurred near the close of the third period. He was carefully looked after and was able to go home, but was very sore. His place was taken by Ilaughton. Line-up and summary: Indianapolis.

Another question that comes t your mind is this: Why do thou; iands of young women, gentle young women, go to football games ant wave ilags until their hats are croo! ed and kick the man on the lowe: seat in the 'back of the neck? The answer is, no doubt, that th. is uist what the wives and daughters . , , , , and sisters ot the savages used to dc & when the battle for food was going . , m A i n on m the forests. I hey stood in the caves or in the treetons and cheered on their men folks. Very likely they would run out now and then and take a hand in the game, when tin enemy was getting the best of it. Professor Patrick says that all our games and sports please us because they bring reminiscences of savagery We do for fun Avhat the savage did for a living. When we hunt, or fisl or camp out, for instance, we a' only doing for fun what all savage? had to do to keep themselves alive. If this theory is true, then the people who live in Chicago and Ne York in 500 years from now will 1 making money for fun and diggin ditches for recreation. The elevere? men in the country will be building skyscrapers just for the amusement of putting up a high and dangerous structure. 1 The college boys of that time, per haps, will be showing their pluck b; hammering rWl-hot holts through iron girders, and their relations anf friends will pay the snort. t'5 a ticket to se Bone.

The Al fords moved up closer to the Fairview aggregation in the City league race by defeating the Models by a score of 4 to 0 at the Coliseum last night. This makes three straigl shut-outs the Alfords have admin istered to their opponents. The game last night was the roughest amateur game that has been witnessed in this city for a long time. The Alfords went into the game determined to win, and, after the Models saw it was impossible for them to win, they played desperately to prevent a shut out. Notes. Muncie has won four out of tl last five games and it should have been five straights with anything like a fair and even break in the referee ing at-Anderson last Friday night The disputed game will be discussed 1 the meeting of the league man gers within a few days, and if ehr ges which will be preferred agains: J. Henry Moran are sustained, Mtm ;'ie will be given the game. Muncie rimes. - ., , There is considerable betting going ni in Muncie that Farrell's Five will finish 5 in the first division, and still others have the audacity to presume she will get first place. Oh, no! "Look a leedle oudt." Richmond has already spoken for that elevated po sition. Richmond plays at Muncie tonight. . Next game here is with Elwood. What Are They?
