Not Wholly a Failure.
The impression gained credence
from the failure of the Juvenile serenaders
to locate their would-be victims
on Friday evening that they therefore
wholly escaped the older ones lying i
In wait this, however, waB not the
case, since the active participants report
to us tbat they succeeded In locating
them tbe first pop, and that so
soon as they arrived on this side of the
river. Tbe unwary groom was taken
in charge by his assailants and escorted
by them to the Monongahela

he that old Tom was as tired of the

LOST THE GAME.
Disastrous Beginning of the Season
for the Varsity Boys.
West Virginia's football season
started oil yesterday In a disastrous
manner with Ohio university. This
was the second team met* last year,
and we defeated It at that time by
28 to 0. Yesterday the Ohio boys
took West Virginia Into camp by a
score of 9 to 6. The. Buckeye team
averaged about ICO pou'nns stripped,
ajid West Virginia no piore. As regards
weight and time of training,
both teams had an equal advantage.
The Ohio team was much bigger,
faster, and better than last year. Un
tier the coaching of McFarlanffl who
played at one time on West Virginia's
team, the Ohio hoys have been
drilled into a good team. West Virginia
on the contrary, is probably
somewhat weaker than when we met
this team last year.
Naturally, the defeat does not tend
to make the rooters any too cheerful,
but there are those who point
to the fact that West Virginia last
year started In with an inglorious defeat
anil at the end of the year was
the strongest In her history. The
coach, captain, and team are not discouraged,
but they are sobered by
