Lewis. Heller and Holman made the big gains and 7!o1m.-mi wai fotced over for the --core, l'endlMnH kicking a dlllicult goal. Both Benedict and lZrwin sent the ball over the side lines in the two attempts at a klckoff, and the Medic were forced to kick Into Cebraska's territov. The Medic line held will and after a few advances. Nebraska wat held for downs. A repeti tion of their former line plunging was m-ide and when time was called for the first hnlf the teiimh were lighting but 1 yards from the Nebraska goal line. Heller made the most sensational play of the game nt' the start of the second hnlf. Hrwin kicked off Vt varels to Holman, who returned., and on the next lineup the Med ic captain took the ball, plunged through the line. and. without molestation, ran " yards for it touchdown. This brilliant piece of work threw the admirers of the doctors Into the wildest demonstration" of enthu siasm. With the i-core 12 to 0 against them the Nebratknny- worked hard for n touchdown Plllhbury bit the line for 10 yards.

Saturday's rame with Nebraska still eon tlnueg to be the chief topic of conversation nmong the athletic cranks of this city and tl 0. students of the tinlvi rsity, who are still telling how It happened. There is a general disposition to feel that If "Shorty" Humlll had not been comiielled to ipilt the game the result might have been differcn. This Is. of course, merely eonjerture. A checking up of the tickets shows that. Including the hojders of season tickets, over r.200 people s iw Saturday's game from tho inside, not to mention the S') or 4WI wlio watched It from the bill above the athl tic Held. This is the largest crowd that ever nsucmbled to witness an athletic event in this city. The total receipts for the g-ime were between fl.lSQ and Jl.itO. ST. MARrSAND KANSAS.

S 15 p m Perhaps the most remarkable tiling about Mr. Civile Fitch- play. "The Motn and the Flame," is tlic novel treatment of a conventional story That u play so ef reetLo .mil so suctessful has been built upon a theme so rimihir. Is another illus tration of the fact that it is not neces- ir for playwrights to Invent strikingly original plots, but thai theio Is great value In an original treatme-nt of trlle subjects Mr. Fit-h has ele parted -o iadlcil!y from cus tom iry lines in Ids conception and sketch ing of scenes and incidents as to leave the Impicsslnn that he has dl-covered a mm" of new dram Hie mileriil when, as a mat ter or Tact, he has simp y retold an old sto'y In a new and strikingly interesting way. Nothing is inoie ramiliar in our dramatis world than the allurements of the Mime and tho burning of the- moth, yet nothing could be more- refreshing than file new setting that Mr. Fitch li is provided for the candle and the- miller. Tl e play is not weighted with any partlc ularlv ns-ertive purpose It his Its lessons, but they are deductive rather than dldactlv. They arc such lei-sons as may lie drawn from everyday life, but which many people rehiso to Ieirn except by experience. The characters arc- drawn from the swell set of New York, and this m ly account for the r.aet that the personages have no p.irticu 1 ir Individuality, although tluy have the sentiments, the virtues and the we iknesst-s common to humanity or all set". Me aro let Into a w oriel where tho genuine Is oli scuiii1 bv the-aitilieial. where people's wits aro sharpened ami compunc tlons dulled by the prnccs-cs or --eemlng whit we are not. 'J hero is neces-sarlly a "erious as v ell . s a humorous side to the situation Hearts aro sometimes responsive In this worid, and there Is no greater security here than elsowherc) against the errors in placing affection. Tin- iirst act represents a company of hoclety people masquerading in chil dren's fancy costumes and being entei t lined by amateur vaudeville, and the see ond act rcpic-enls a church wedding. Until scenes give Ml. Fitch exce'lent opportu nities to Indulge in his exceptionally clever satire-. lie has written keenly and daring lv In supplying his types of the "too' witn eli ilogue, and if he lias nol made them ad irdraM. he- hns at least made them enter t lining '1 here- is no attempt to make a string of ep'grams Each smart line seems to lit precisely where It Is placed. The tejinedv thus furnished Is decide-dly snpeiior lo tin- -erious side of the plav. Tin latter show-H us a genuine, winsome, but know ing young woman defying the- calumnies heaped upon the mm she loves anil lc fi.slng to be lie ve til it lie is an unworthy "coundrel until she has an ocular demon stration of l.ls real nature. This demon stration tomes so up that she is b ireiy saved rrom a sncrilicc- or her future happi ness, n comes at the altar.
