A Bear Story.
Greencastle, Ind., October 15.-
De Pauw closed its hard practice for
he week yesterday for the Earlham
bame today. Coach McFadden is ex-
peedingly anxious for the team to
nake a good showing in this game.
?oble is now playing at center,
lolmes has been shifted from half to
Quarter and Douglass from full back
o half. Hall, the big full back who
was injured in the "Wabash game,
will probably not enter the game to
day, and this will weaken the team.
Smith drew a fractured rib in yes
terday's practice and will not be able
to join the squad for about two
weeks. "With the hospital list full,
De Pauw's chances for winning from
Earlha mare not flattering.

Makes . Specialty of Collecting Junk
With His Hoofs.
Weber & nolzapfel, junk dealers,
manage to get about every thing in
their line in and about the city but
one of their dray horses, a relic of by
gone days, is their most industrious
junk collector. His specialty is er
tra long bolts and railroad spikes.
He brings something of this variety
in daily but to make him deliver the
goods a surgical operation is neces
sary. He has the bad habit of col
lecting the above mentioned ostrich
feed in his hoofs. Yesterday morning
the old boy ran a three inch spoke in
one of his fore hoofs, which he ac
cepted with the indifference of long
practice. The driver secured a hatch
et, crowbar, chisel and monkey
wrench and with the aid of these tools
soon had the bit of iron out of the
hoof and into the wagon.

that. Quakers and all are silent
