' In Carl Lundquest, a Dane, John
iTiening, the "Butcher Boy," who is
Sneeting all comers' at-the -Star theater,
Brooklyn, last night found a tough
proposition. Lundquest, who is neariy
six feet and well trained, went against
Piening for the $50 which is presented
to anyone who stays fifteen minutes.
Lundquest was brought to the mat by
a firm grasp around the waist, , but at
once began a stubborn resistance. He
twisted and whirled about, breaking
hold3 with impunity. He got away
from a tight further Nelson in which
John invested all his strength. Occa
sionally Lundquest acted on the ag
gressive, but as.he was only there to
May the limit he allowed Piening to do
most of the work. At 7 minutes
Piening was still scheming for some;
; hold to pin his man down. He tried a
:full Nelson which Lundquest cleverly
avoided. In turning about Lundquest
wa9 not speedy enough and wa$ , en
snared into a hammer lock. Try as
be would Lundquest could not dislodge
the hold and was thrown. . The time
;was 9 minutes and 3 seconds. At the
-matinee William Hess, a German hail
ing from Brooklyn, was Piening' s op
ponent. Piening gained a f all. in 7
minutes. A full Nelson was the means
of Hess's undoing. To-night Piening

on Monday night, fainted during the
day and was forced to leave the track..

NEVER TRUST A HORSE.
Conclusion of a Man Who Ha Trained
and Studied the Amimala tov
j I have spent much pf a long .life in
the observationof horses. I .have
Teared them, broken them,' 7 drained
them, - ridden them, and driven them
in every form from the plow to the
four-in-hand: -The result of these
years of ..study is summed up in dn&.
-sn.tencey.-&ays a writer in. Harper's
Weekly. I believe the horse to be part
maniac and Dart idiot. Every horse at
some time in his life develops into; a
homicidal maniac. I believe any man
who trusts', himself or hig family to
the mower 'of , a horse, stronger than
himself to. be lacking in cannon sens
and wholly devoid of ordinary pru
dence. I have driven one commonplace
horse every other day for six years
over the same road, and then had him.
go crazy and try to kill himself and
me because a leaf fluttered down in
front of him. I have known scores
of horses,' apparently creatures of rou
tine, go .wild and insane . over equal
ly Tegular and recurring" phenomena.
No amount of observation can tell
when the brute-will break out. One
mare took two generations of children
to school over the same quiet road, and
then in her nineteenth year went crazy
because a rooster crowed alongside the
road. She killed two of the children.
If any man can tejl me of one good rea
son why man should trust a horse I
should be glad to know, v

New Haven, Sept 24. For twelve
minutes yesterday afternoon Yale in
dulged in the first practice half of the
season. . With the exception of the
ends Yale 'varsity team puts up a very
fair exhibition of football. Glass and
Hogan proved the strong men of the
team. The 'varsity led off with the
ball and made good gains. TEe tollege
team received the ball the second six
minutes and the very first play on the
'varsity left end made ten yards.
Moorehead finally brought down his
man, who dropped the ball, which Met
calf picked up and made a forty yard
run for a touchdown. The new men
out were Donahue, Goodwin", Gerth,
Reid, Strong, Washington and Warren.
William A.-Blount of New York was
yesterday appointed coach of the fresh
men football eleven for this fall. He
will, call out the. candidates for fho
team on Thursday. Members of the
faculty said yesterday that there was
small chances for the reinstatement of
Bloomer,, the star tackle. They stated
that his original suspension was until
Christmas and that it was not propable
that it would be lifted. Bloomer will
appear before a committee of the facul
ty this week to have his case settled.
Cambridge, Sept 24. The Harvard
football squad had two sessions of
practice on! Soldiers' Field yesterday,
but from now on morning work will
be eliminated. Good work again char

were some more added to the squad,
among them some 200 pounders. Two
five-minute line-ups were held between
squad A and squad C. The punting
was better than ever, and a number of
coaches directed the work. Marshall,
a former Dartmouth guard, weighing
215 pounds, came out He is consid
ered one of the strongest candidates
for guard. Force, a law school man,
who played on the second eleven last
year at center, also came out. Another
promising freshman made his appear
ance yesterday. Carrick he played' on
the Cambridge Manual Training school
team eleven for several years and
weighs 220. Mills, one of the fresh
men tackles last fall, and Stanley Par
ker of the '04 freshmen team, joined
the squad. .
Princeton, Sept 24. "Bill" Edwards,
the Tigers' noted old guard and , -captain,
arrived here yesterday afternoon.
He took the candidates for the time in
tow and sent them through the hardest
drill they have had yet. Early in the

they put Veterlein, the promising young
fullback from the Penri Charter school,
at quarterback. He fell in with thp
ways of the new position readily, pass
ing accurately and handling the leather
with hardly .a tumble.' There was
tackling and plenty of other rough
work, although no attempt" was made
toadvance the ball by regular stages.

by a German, "V
Herr Schuch, a German. author, has
compiled a dictionary of ,500 insulting
expressions, carefully tabulated, in
dexed and Classified. . The work, on
which Herr Schuch has spent years of
labor, is called the Schimpfworter
Lexikon and is divided into five general
heads insults f,or men, insults for
women, insults, for either sex, insults
for children and collective insults for
syndicates, groups and corporations.
Herr Schuch, with that minute discern-i
ment of the searching German, has
subdivided these classes into smaller
ones, so that wfcen onet wishes to call
his friend er' enemy a name it needs
but a shori consulta tion with the book
to find the exact epithet or phrase
which will' fit , the case. This work
would have been invaluable to Mis

and even now the teamster, may regard,

Solicitude about ways and means,
the pinch of povrty,. anxiety as' .to
bills, ability to pay debts, losses and
crosses in znatters of finance, are
more surely distressing and more, re
lentlessly wear, out the body and
soul than all other causes put to
gether, writes Margaret E. Sangster
in Ladies' Home Journal. , The deep
est grief, the most persistent heart
ache, the uttermost 'sbrTbw, always
excepting disgrace, ae -powerless to
use up ' vital energy , as . pecuniary
anxiety inevitably does. If this is to
be attributed to 0U5 American habit
of idolizing show, vrHc leads some
people to" engage in a siyle of living
lar beyond their means, so. that the
wolf is forever creeping near the sill,
or growling at the window-pane, the
remedy is, within reach. Live more
simply. Remove to another neigh
borhood. Abridge some, expenses.
Refuse to spend more than is earned.
Cling to the old , furniture,; to the
faded hangings, ' to the threadbare
rugs, but have peace of mind and be
able to "look the whole world in the
face, for; you owe' not any man.M
There are, of' course, family crise
when obligations multiply, as in pro
longed' illness "with its attendant ex
traordinary expenses,' when several
of the children: are in school and col
lege at the same ' tlmeV " and there
cannot be postponement of the cost
of their education. ' " j : , ) ;
i Ordinarily, however, the 1 rule of
the home and of the individual in love
with composure and independence
should not ; be to incur expenses
which cannot .'readily' he defrayed;
not to venture into that slough of
desponi known as debt, with even the
tips of one's toes.: The most , deeply
furrowed, pathetic and hopelessly
tired countenances on this earth are
the faces of honest and honorable
people,-men and women of integrity,
who cannot meet their financial ob
ligations. ;v -V'-' "','.. '
