T M m w ftr Rock Island high school football team showed a. great reversal of form In its Saturday game at Princeton and the result was a 13 to 6 victory over the Princeton high Bchool aggrega tion. The work of the eleven was as pronouncedly good Saturday as it was poor the Saturday before and the vic tory was a merited one. All the mem bers of the team and espeHaly Whlsler and Brough won glory In the fray which was pronounced one of The (leanest and prettiest exhibitions ever Wn at Princeton. The contest opened with Rock Is land kicking off. Princeton carried the ball back to the center of the field on a succession of line smi.hheg tut there they were held for downs and Rock Island got, the ball and be gan its first offensive play. With ev--ry man on his toes, the Rock Island ers swept down the field In a steady march towards goal. Gains were short but conslstant and five times the chains were moved ahead after a first down had been declared. Finally when within striking distance of goai, WhlsUer was called on and he de iver-i-d, tarrying the ball over Princeton's line for the first touchdown of the fame. Glass kicked goal. Store 7 to 0.

There is an old saying that if yon can count 'five between the flash and the thunder you are safe. Modern science tells us that if you can see toe flash at all you are safe, because if 1c struck you you would have no time to see it. The speed of lightning is abouc 180 times that of sightl The old idea was that if you could count five the storm was a mile away, which was considered a safe distance. Sound travels at the rate of 1,142 feet a second, or about a mile in five sec- onds. In order to count seconds ac- curately many photographers start by I saying to themselves: "No one thou sand, one one thousand, two one thou sand, three one thousand," etc. This gives about the right space between each count of one, two, three, etc., if you stop at the number of seconds you want to time. With a little practice with a watch beside you this is ac curate up to half a minute or more. If you see a steam whistle blowing and note the instant it stops you can count the seconds until you lose the sound, and by allowing a fifth of a mile for each second you can Judge the distance. The same is true of guns, or an explosion, or even of hammering or any loud sounds. New York Press.

The apparently unbeatable Inde pendents added another scalp to their belt yesterday afternoon when they walloped the Moline West Ends 53 to at Island City park before the big gest crowd of the year. The Rock Is land team showed up to fine advantage, being able to get away with most of the plays they used and exhibiting de fensive ability which prevented the losers from making a single touch down. The particular stars of the day were Art Salzmann, Davenport, MacManus, Swanson, Robb, Coleman and Dooley. and the others might Just as well be mentioned, for not a man but what played good balL The Mollners, while outweighed and outplayed, put up a scrappy contest and made it interesting for the win ners during the entire first half, but in the second session, strength and weight began to tell, and it was simply a procession to goal whenever the In dependents got the ball. TWO PRETTY DROP KICKS. Moline kicked off to the Independ ents to start the game and the local team at once showed its offensive ability by carrying the ball to within striking distance of their opponents' goal. There they were held, however, and on a fourth down, with five yards to go, MacManus dropped back and booted a pretty drop kick between the posts, making the score 3 to 0. Sev' eral minutes later he duplicated the trick, making the score 6 to 0. That was all that could be made in the first quarter. ni:;i-v in the second, The real work of the team began in the second quarter. A few minutes af ter it started MacManus punted and Quarterback Anderson got the ball within a yard of his own goal line. He was tackled and hurled back and the play resulted in a safety with two points for the Independents. A few minutes later Rock Island began an ir resistible march for a touchdown and Art Salzmann went over on a fierce line pluijge with the first touchdown. Before the half was ended another was scored and the count was 20 to 0, both tries at goal having been missed. The second half was a walkaway for the Independents, who were rarely stopped after getting possession of the ball. Line plunging by Salzmann and Robb, end running by Davenport, Dooley and MacManus, and forward passes and double passes in which Roy Salzmann and Swanson at tackle and Dooley, Murphy and Behnamann at end figured, supplied thrills to the one-sided contest.

LAW NHAI.ES ARE WINNERS. A curtain raiser to the main game was played by the Lawndales and the Bijou Leaders and the former team won by a 7 to 6 score. Both teams were hindered by the crowd but they put up an interesting and very close contest nevertheless. FOES TO SUCCESS. Don't Be a Victim of Timidity, Shynets er Self Consciousness. Timidity, shyness and self conscious ness belong to the same family. We usually find all where we find any one, and they are all enemies of peace of mind, happiness and achievement. No one has ever done a great thing while his mind was centered upon himself. We most lose ourselves before we can find ourselves. Self analysis Is valu able only to learn our strength; it is fatal if it makes us dwell upon our weaknesses. Timid, shy people are morbidly self conscious. They think too much about themselves. Their thoughts are turn ed Inward; they are always anslyztng, dissecting themselves, wondering bow they appear and what people think of them. If these people could only for get themselves and think of others they would be surprised to see what freedom, ease and grace they would gain, what success In life they would achieve. Thousands of young people are held back from undertaking what they long to do and are kept from trying to make real their great life dreams because they are afraid to Jostle with tbe world. They shrink from exposing their sore spots and sensitive points which smart from the lightest touch. Their supersensltlvens makes cow ards of them. O. S. Msrdea In Success Magazine.

With the per sonal indorsement of Cardinal Farley and in accordance with the papal bull ot Pius X. fo the daughters of the faith. Miss Eliza O'B. Lu in in is, the founder of the movement, will send cut tomorrow to the' heirarchy of the United States and Canada an outline ot the plan of organization. Active cooperation upon the part of cardinals, archbishops and bishops with the laity of their respective dio ceses is asked in this concerted ef fort to bring all classes, irrespective of creed, into a national union for the eradication of immoral drama from the America stage. Cardinal Gibbons, Baltimore; Car dial O'Connell, Boston; Archbishop Riordan, San Francisco; the bishops of Newark, Sioux City, Iowa, Rich mond and Bismarck, N. D., have as sured the cardinal of New York of tl elr readiness to further the project. Cardinal Farley upon his return next week from the Pacific coast is expected to announce the personnel oC the national and local committees. "National Catholic influence,"" de clsres the official plan of organiza tion, "must be concentrated upon practical demonstration in New Y'ork, vhile foundation is being laid at the s.'ime time in every city for local sup port of reputable plays. Success in New Y'ork will be repeated in every other city; plays denounced in New York will find no audience elsewhere."' The plan of organization, as official ly outlined, provides that a national committee shall invite the formation in each city of a Catholic civic com mittee under the supervision of its bishop. The civic committee in each city shall form subcommittees in each parish. The subcommittee, each supervised by its pastor, shall cover a special field, calling social meetings for dis- i cussion among their own people and : f.ainlug the cooperation of all classes in their district. Each parish shall 1 thus have individual representation , through its civic committee in the na tional committee In New Y'ork and shall be credited with the sum of all ' financial offerings from its people. The opening of a theatre under , Catholic supervision, the clergy is likewise informed, does not indicate the immediate erection of a theatre building. Managers will find it to their financial profit to present ap- j proved plays if indorsement and sup- port are warranted. Nor is the undertaking wholly de- j pendent on financial support. It is ; advisable, however, that each city j should offer its assistance to tlTe na-, tional committee. j Cardinal Gibbons assures the card!-1 nal of New Y'ork that in trying to up-; lift the moral tone of our plays be has Lis hearty support. Among the women vitally interested ' are Mrs. Mary Anderson Navarro and ' Miss Elizabeth Marbury. Mary An derson wrote: "If a Catholic theatre could be r. ade practical it would be a beautiful thing and do great good. But where Procure plays? Would it reproduce n.ysteries? If would take a lot of money. Where is the money to bo f-.-und?" Independent of the movement Miss Marbury contemplates the production iu London this season of Miss Lum- E)is' drama, "The Dear St. Elizabeth,'' published last spring. MARRIAGE BY PROXY. This Curious Ceremcny Is a Purely Dutch Institution. Some time ago u Boer iu Pretoria was married to a girl in Amsterdam, in Holland, the ceremony constituting what the Duteb rail handscboen. or glove marriage. In ariife if the fart tli.it a ri!vfanc nf 6.000 miles lay between the bride In tha Netherlands and tbe bridegroom 3r in the Transvaar they were Just as ef fectually married under the Dutch law as if both bad been present la tbe same church. The bridegroom sent to his friend, or best man. In Amsterdam a power of attorney to represent him a9 his proxy at the ceremony and at the same time forwarded his glove, which at the proper moment, when the two were made one. was held by both the bride and the proxy. The wedding was duly registered at Amsterdam and at Pretoria, where the bridegroom filed an affidavit with the landdrost, or magistrate. This curious form of marriage Is a -purely Dutch institution, the custom having originated, it Is said. In the old times of Dutch-Batavian rule. It Is, however, a dead letter In the Trans vaal since the English took over that colony'. New York Press. i After the Deluge.
