Eilcins was defeated by the roar- t<
jjanized T. M. C. A. team at the Kali: o
Grounds yesterday by a score of 21 t;
to 0. Whether the new blood in the ai
team is responsible for the phenotn- si
lira u s g o u u suuw iug i.m; viaure mime >
or the strenuous practice indulged in sj
lately is a matter of doubt to the fans. g<
At any rate the showing was there \\
good and strong. The team work, was m
a matter of surprise to every one and in
the old weakness on defenses lias
been nearly eliminated, very few pgains
being made through the line in b<
this game. Of course there is very y(
little comparison between the Mounds- ta
ville team and the Elkins bunch, yet a
fhe plays' of yesterday were gone h
through with a snap and vim that th
bodes evil for the former team, should e{
they play a return date in this city, rl]
as is the intention. The interfer- a?
ence was splendid oil nearly every oc- w
elision and in fact the whole demon- ft,
stration was better than on any su
previous game; but then it must he th
remembered that this is the third rog- e(j
ular contest that the Y. M. C. A. team re
has participated in this year and it so
is a cinch that the Elkins team is by x.i
far the easiest proposition that has th
appeared on the local grounds this 8ii
season, therefore, it is manifestly un- do
fair to attribute the victory to the ut
prowess of the former members of go

Miller has a very bad arm, and Ely for

the only members of the original an<
