Keinenibor there are four different sizes. No girl is happier than Avhen she has a beautiful doll. Collier's Weekly, one of the greatest weekly papers published in the United States, in speaking of ese dolls, said: "There is more involved than appears on tlie surface in encouraging little Negro girls to clasp in their arms pretty copies of themselves. The white race dosen't monopolize all the beauty and lovableness, and it will be a happy day when this is realized." I " V.' 'i ' ' vviT"',)!'-; i;. - '' , -J.-'" ...

Atlanta. Ga. -October The "Ti mers" of Baptist College played the second game of (lie season this after noon with the City Y. M. C. A. The "Tigers" .were greatly surprised when they found the city team so strong. In the first half the battle was hard and fierce.;; but in the last half th'e city Fooys grew weak, and the "Tigers" ran 'the score up to 27. The Marooner's goal was not even threatened at any -stage of the game. The principle fea ture of the game was the hard tackling by the Y. M. C. A. The "Tigers." as usual, played great ball. For the Y. M. C. A., Franklin and Marion were -vastly, the stars. It is always a hard job to pick A. B. C's stars. I think "Vic" Turner, the Huberts and Wade -were the stars in this game. How ever, old "Sandy" Jackson, known to many as "Kid Sandy," played great ball and because of that I make special mention of him. The "Tigers" miss Dickson their old guard who is now playing with Meharry. Of course, "Gene" Allen, a former member of the "Champs." and who is now at Howard University, will be ever remembered. Referee, Dr. R. II. Carter; Umpire, Dr. A. T). Jones. A. B. C, 27; Y. M. C. A.. 0. After a defeat by Franklin last Fri day G to 0 in which Franklin was outclassed but won. the Tigers of Pearl Hiirh met the Walden Cubs and de feated them by a srore of 5 to 0 Wednesday afternoon. Fifloen minute halves were played, and it is due to this f;vt tint the High shool did not score another touch down. I During the t'.rst half after an ex-, change of punts and several rushes Feari brought th bull to the middle of the field. Two more rushes a forr ward pass, and end run put the ba.ll inside of Walden's yard Una. Time for the half ended bere with the ball in Fearl High'a possession. During the second half by good punt- inc and line rushes, the High School brought the ball t Walden's 25 yard lino, riere Allisom got around Bass's end nnd had clear field ahead, but af ter running fifteen yards stumbled and fell. The High School then made two fforta to crush the "Walden line and ward pass from Hurt to Upshaw en abled the latter player to cross the goal for a touchdown as time for the half ended. Hurt, failed to kick goal. The Pearl School line worked in the same magnificent manner that it has in every game of the year and the back field was there with the goods all the time. The High School was especially weak in handling punts in the back field, and plunging the line with the play ers a little too high. With the faults remedied, the High School will be able to make all teams of its class hustle. ' In this game Walden was entirely on the defensive and seemed to be out classed. , ., TheMine-up follows: Tearl. Walden.

Like most of the rest of the squad Smith is in the game all the time The team as a whole is light but fast and as plucky as they make them. Aside from the handicap in weight which is regarded very slight, the boys have a few injuries.' King, the mighty left half, seems to be out of the game for the season with a bad shoulder school, had the following to say to the on the team, and to be without his Globe correspondent: help in the game is a big blow to the "It was one of the cleanest and hard- team. We are hoping, though, that he est fought games I have ever wit nessed. Both teams were keyed to the highest pitch and played their best. The teams were about evenly matched.

Nothing is being trusted to chance, for the men have had it beaten into them by ceaseless work and suggestions that fail 'Is on the side of the heaviest batallions" and that the heaviest batallion is made not by avoirdupois, not by the process of any Individual man, but by a dead ly, accuracy and absolute precision In .... . i every little aetau or tne game; Dy careful and untiring drill In the ma chine like operation of eleven men, links of the same chain and that chain is no stronger than Its weakest link. The "changing sled," "tackling dira- my" and other little devices are not snared their share of making up In elding the individual links for their Rreatest efficiency in this chain. ;Thft students wear the "smile that puzzling, while McMillan, tackle and Jackson, end, all on the right side of line, are at present reminded that they have legs by minor injuries. All will be around perhaps by the Baptist Col lege game on the 14 of November. Clarke, end and veritable adamant of last year, will be shifted from full to left half, while Thompson, one of the greatest toe managers oh' the checker board of today, 13 expected' to don his armor and do battle for Fisk at full. Warner, McKissack, and Booker Washington are bubbling over with energy and desire to mus up their togs on some big half back. In fact, the whole squad, including some rugged but unseasoned scrubs, are anxious to do service under capt. stun, ap pointed to take charge in the place of King. If no new Injuries result from prac tice, the people or Nashville can ex pect one of the hardest battles ever ushered on the field by the passing of the sun into the western sky. We have a tough proposition and we know it, because Baptist College is without doubt the strongest; team west of the mountains, and you may well search their record for clean t football. There s sure to be "something doing" on Bennet Field. "In the second half. State Normal fumbled a punt and this enabled Tus: kegee to get near their goal and with only one minute to play Tuskegee exe cuted a beautiful pass. In the next play Tuskegee carried the ball over for a touchdown. The game ended 5-0, Tuskegee having failed to kick goal. The Normal boys were highly enter tained by 'the Tuskegeans and though the city 'boys lost, it was in such a hard fought conest that they can feel honored by the fight they made." Tuskegee is to meet the strong Atlanta Baptist College team on the fourteenth of the month. i Tuskegee Defeats State Normal. Special to the Globe. Montgomery. Ala., Nov. 3. The schools in this district are as inter ested in football as ever and it would seem from some of the contests played each one is represented by a strong team. Last Saturday, October 31, the boys of the State Normal School, of this city, stacked up against the husky representatives of Tuskegee. Concerning the gam Dr. W. F. Wat kins, who will be remembered by stu dents of football lore, as the famous "Watt" of Meharry, one of the best AfP" now that Smith, the Quarters ever turned out by that The game to be played Saturday, Me harry vs. Talladega, will no doubt be a good one as both teams are strong and confident of victory. Talladega comes with a long string of scalps dangling from her belt, and is very anxious to take the coming game from Meharry. This would add pres tige to the team. Meharry, on the other hand, is compelled to take this game to hold her place in the football world a3 one of the strongest teams in the country. If all reports are true, she will have the time of her life to down the boys from Alabama. The team comes well drilled in the new game, and with as fast a set of backs as she has ever had; in short, noth ing has been left undone to make the team a good one. Meharry will have to play some good hard football to win. There seems to be plenty doing on Bennett Field. Every day Coach Giles has his boys out early carrying them through a stiff practice, and they seem to be rounding into fairly good shape. His back field Is giving him considerable trouble. He will have to develop a new man to fill the place left open by King, as it Is hardly likely he will be able to play again thU sea son. To AH .his place will be no easy Job, for he was by far the best man will soon recover, and that the public will again have a chance to see the big boy in harness. r Despite the fact that .Coach Giles has only light material on hand with which to work, he will have a won derful team. And when they play the A. B. C. boys on the"; 14th, ' they will present an aggregation that will be hard to down. While the boys are light they are also fast and, above all,N they have that old Fisk spirit that i will keep them fighting until the last. I The Globe man was out several days ' ago to look at the team In motion. While they are a bit . light they have l speed to burn, and it is safe to say J Fisk has never had ,a . faster team. Coach Giles has also given some at- tentlon to the forward pass, and it is if a common thing to; see some of thef .' boys throw the ball from1 ten to fifty! yards. . . ' i Fisk will play her first varsity game , on November 14; and until then it v,$tl be hard to get a line on the team. But there is no doubt but that she will be , strong, and that Fisk will still be in i the running. WATERPROOFING MATCHES.' Simple Method That May Be of Use to Campers. (From the Scientific American.) Perhaps some of your readers would be interested to know that I have found a simple, inexpensive way to waterproof matches. Into some melted paraffin (care be-J ing taken that it was as cool as pos- sible.) I dipped a few ordinary parlorJ matches. After withdrawing them! and allowing them to cool it was found that they scratched almost as easilyi as before being coated with the waxi Several were held under water for. six or seven hours and all of theiri lighted as easily as before immersion. When the match is scratched the par afflne Is first rubbed off and the match lights in the usual way. Matches treated as .above would I very useful on camping or canoelig trips, as they do not absorb moisture. Since more rubbing Is . required . to light them than the ordinary match; It would be practically Impossible to set them on fire by accidental dropping. failed.
