The interstate roller polo league has at last taken the count after a most severe punishment. lAfter a meeting of the league Sunday, President Fouse an nounced that the league had disband ed. When the National league started in New England two months ago, many of the best Interstate players were lur ed away by offers of bigger salaries. The interstate league held a meeting Saturday and decided to go out of bus iness. Youngstown, Akron and Sharon said they were ready to quit Beaver j Falls, Canton and New Castle wire making money and wanted to continue,1 but couldn't go on without the other three. The league was then disband ed. The details of the meeting were, not given out until Monday, and the news of the disruption of the league, came as a great surprise to the. play ers and fans all over the circuit. All of the players secured their money except the Akron men. The men behind the game there claimed they were financial ly, embarrassed and refused to pay last week's salary. The Cleveland Leader says the play ers are to blame. Up to six weeks ago the league was in flourishing condi tion. The desertion of Jean killed polo in Akron, while the loss of Hart and Coggshall put Youngstown to the bad. For the past three weeks Sharon, Ak ron and Youngstown have been losing on an average of $200 a week. The falling oft of attendance, coupled with the fact that the players tried to run thg league,' especially the Canton club, Drought about its downfall. Last week the Canton club positively refused to play the games with the Akron club, which were scheduled for Erie, on ac count of the six-day race In Akron. The breaking up of the league can be laid to the players. They not only refused to play the dates scheduled, but de manded salares far in advance of their worth. The fact that the interstate was at war with the National made players scarce, and caused war-time salaries to be paid. President Fouse of the Interstate says the finances are all right, and all bills have been paid. By the disruption of the interstate league many first class players will be thrown on the market and the Nation al league teams will profit thereby. Hartford fans are naturally interested In the Boston team, recently transferred from Hartford. It It understood that Hardy, the big center, Is likely to dis place Long John Wiley, at the Hub. Wiley has been playing at a disad vantage for two weeks, since his right hand was Injured by a hockey stick. He Is not now able to play anything like his usual same at center, or In any other position, being inabl to drive the ball. It would not be surprising If he was released in favor of Hardy, who Is In the same class with Fred Jean, but rot so good a rinK general as Wiley. Pawtucket has secured Woodtke, the "Flying Dutchman," for the rush line. and Pence, the "Boy Wonder," at goal, "Mary Ann" Tlbbits, the giant goal tend of the Providence team, Is likely to be displaced. Bridgeport Is after Ted Iewis, who is a rusher In the same class with Bob by Hart. Waterbury wants "Jig" Higglns. a rusher who has always made good. The story that Paul Gardner has been signed by Now Haven team is untrue. George Bone does not want to break up a winning combination and has no in tention of getting the interstate player.

Enola, the famous Pennsylvania Railroad yard on the west branch of the Susquehanna, gflt its name in a strange way. A telegraph operator who spent the lonely hours in the little watch box, with no more than half a dozen trains a day to disturb him or break the monotony, before the big yard was built, called up the Baltimore office and asked to be relief from such a lonesome place. In sending the mes sage he signed "operator in charge of the tower all alone." There was some trouble on the wire and the last word could not be understood. He was ask ed to repeat and then to spell it back ward. This he did, first "alone," then "Enola-" In this way the town, which was built to order in a little more than two years, gots its name. Philadel phia Record. HOW THE PRESIDENT WORKS. No matter how students of politics and critics of Presidents may dis agree as to the statesmanship of The odore Roosevelt, none can deny that as a machine capable of doing a large amount of work he has few equals. "How does he accomplish so much?"" Is a question frequently asked. Gen ius for work in other words, the lucuity tor applying each pound of steam where It will tell accounts for Mr. Roosevelt's ability to do a great deal more work than the average man ttf capable of, but back of his ability to work Is his ability and determina tion to take care of the physical part of him, and maintain the. highest point of efficiency. The President never "loafs," but never forgets to plan a certain amount, or hard working leisure. He rests his brain and nerves by "work wig out nis muscies. jnero is no waste of time because he returns to brain work under a full head of steam. Thousands of business and profes sional men, who do much less thnn half of the work done by President Roosevelt, haven t time" for oxer else and recreation. They do not ac complish as much because they ignore the importance of keeping In condi tion to work, nnd for the same reason their work Is oftfcn drudgery. President Roocvelt does not make tne common American mistake of thinking that steam heat is a health preserver and that cold air and damp air kill. Physically President Roosevelt is, to a certain extent, self-made. can do more work than many an who started in life with more rugged health, but who wasted his vital forces by pursuing a policy of all work and no play. Barring accidents, he will le in working condition for a much long er period than the man who stimu lates himself from his stomach Instead of through the exercising of his legs and filling his lungs with the air of out-of-doors, a tonic that is health giving in rain or shine and regardless of temperature.

NO DOUBT ABOUT THIS WEDDING A hush fell upon the audience as the sweet chime of bells were again heard, and the curtains slowly parted, revealing a pretty group under branches of fsmilax, mistletoe, and holly branches, with fairies In attend ance. In the center stood a young man of fine physique and attractive coun tenance, which was illumined with happiness and tender love for the fair white-robed maiden standing by bis side, with downcast eyes, contemplat ing the beautiful bouquet In her hands; and beneath her veil the blushes came and went.

The clear, firm response, "I do," being satisfactory, the proper questions being answered in the affirmative by his companion, the ring was produced and placed up on her finger, and the couple pro nounced husband and wife, end no one ceuld feel a doubt but that God had joined these two together.
