Mrs. Carter's Next Play.
David Belasco has secured for Mrs.
Carter a new play which is due to the
collaboration of Eugene Morand,
Vance Thompson and Marcel Schwob.
Morand, the French dramatist, wrote
"Izeyl" for Bernhardt. and, in colla
boration with Marcel Schwob, the
"Hamlet" in which Bernhardt ap
peared in her last tour in the United
States. "Messaline," in which Calve
made her hit here last season, was his.,
and his "Griselidis," the opera for
which Mlassenet wrote his daintiest
music. was well received by some in

Hilliard Again to Act.
IRobert lHilliard hias said good-by to
\Vall street and is back on Broadway
again. HIe has quit the brokerage
business and is going on the stage,
after an absence of two years.
He has signed a contract With
Messrs. Rich & Harris to play under
their management for a term of five
years. The play they have chosen
for him to make his re-entry on the
stage is "Jim Bludsoe." a melodrama,
founded upon Mr. John Hay's poem of
that name. Mr. Hilliard will appear
in this at the Fourteenth Street thea
ter, New York, Jan. 5 next.
"Jim Bludsoe" is a radical departure
from the light comedies and society
plays in which Mr. Hilliard became
well linown, but he welcomes the
change and thinks that the character
of Jim Bludsoe is well suited to him.

Great Run and Tackle.
After the Springfield game in 1894
relations between Harvard and Yale
were suspended until 1897. In 1895,
having only one big game, that with
Pennsylvania, Harvard and Princeton
entered a two-year agreement, the 1895
game being scheduled early in Novem
ber at Princeton.
The game was played in the rain
and on the most slippery of fields. The
conditions were almost as unfavorable
as those under which the Harvard
Yale game was played at New Haven
Suter made his great run and
Brewer his tackle in this game.
Early in the first halt Harvard se
cured the ball on Princeton's 15-yard
line, having lost it on diowns, Baird,
the Princeton's fullback, lifting a high
punt straight in the air. On the stands
the Harvard men were hugging them
selves for a tolchdown seemed cer
tain, and a great shout went up when
Quarterback Borden passed the ball
to Jack Fairchild.
But it was a poor pays. The wet,
slippery ball slid away from Fairchild
just as he reached for it on his way in
to a big hole opened in the Princeton
line. The ihal rolled to one side, and
quick as a flash. Suter. the tigers'
quarterhack,. snatched it up and
started down: the field.
The Harvard goa! line was just 100
yards away. From hlie mass of scram
bling players two or three fellows in
crimson stockings: d isntangled them
selves and started in hot pur:~uit. But
Suter outstriplped then: all-all but one
Brewer was more than 15 yards be
hind Suter when the race began, but
immediately began to overhaul the lit
tle chap galloping thro;gh the mud to
ward Har'vard's goal. Alo!ng the side
lines there was tumult. Usually when
a startling play is on. one side is jubi
lant. the other silent. but at Princeton
on that rainy day and in that yellow
mud nearly 12,10m people were yelling
like mad-for football was quite for
gotten in that wild race.
Gradually Brewer cut down the dis
tance between himself and his fleeing
rival, while 5,0001 Princeton voices
screamed encouragement to Suter and
almost the same number of Harvard
men rent the air with their appeal to
The runners passed line after line,
Brewer once coming almost within
reach, but losing again. But at last,
when he had reduced the difference to
only six feet, he (love squarely at the
little fellow in orange and black and
down they came together iii a heap on
Harvard's ten-yard line.
It was the most sensational finish
over seen at a football game, and not
only Suter and Brewer, but half of the
remainder of the players, who had

Yale Overwhelms Harvard.
Yale won back its title to the Ame?,
ican football championship, which it
dropped last year to Harvard by de
feating its historic foe at New Ha
ven Nov. 12 by a score of 23 to 0.
This was one point better than that
which the Cambridge players rolled up
on Yale at Soldiers' field a year ago.
It was the most cherished ambition of
the Yale crowd to better the score
made in the crushing defeat adminis
tered last fall, and Capt. Chadwick
achieved this ambition by the mar
gin of just one point.
It was dramatic justice, judged by
Yale standards, that this year the
Yale slate should he just as clean on
the defensive side as was that of Har
vard a year ago. and that not a single
point should be scored against it.
Both teams came within an ace of
ettrig the scores ale losing the

down because it was held on downs,
and Capt. Kieruan of Harvard failing
after a magnificent try for a field goal
from the Yale thirty-fire yard line.
Yale made two of its touchdowns in
each of the thirty-five minute halves,
Capt. Chadwick and Metcalf crossing
the Harvard rush line in the first and
Kinney and Hogan in the second half.
Two Teams Divide Big Sum.
From computations made by Geo.
S. Murray, general athletic treasurer
of the Princeton Athletic Association,
and announced through the alumni
weekly. the Yale-Princeton game has
been proved the most successful finan
c.ially which has ever been played on
The net piroceed'('' were about $30,000,

Makes Slide With Football.
There was a remarkable play in the
rice'nt Amherst-Columbia game, one
which smacked of baseball rather than
football. An Amherst man was scoot
ing diagonally for the Columbia goal
line with a Columbia man at his heels
and ready to pounce on him at any
moment. Just before the runner was
in the pursuer's grasp and about to
Ibe thrown, he left his feet and slid the
.remaning five yards for the goal line,
like a man sliding for the plate. ]e
went head first with the ball under
him and his dive enabled him to elude
the Columbia man's clutch. It was a
rare play and one that bespoke qulpk'
ness of wit.
