The game last year resulted In favor of Council Bluffs by 24 to IS.

Council Bluffs' touchdown was made In the first fifteen minutes , after which neither side scored although Red Oak at ono time got the ball to Council Bluffs' two-yard line. The Bluffs boys made their gains prin cipally by end nm.i. J , J. Hces of Council Bluffs acted as referee and Prlnglo of Red Oak officiated as umpire. Council Bluffs won the toss and chose the north goal. Kcd Oak kicked off toss than ten yards and secured the ball to start the play. By end runa and center play they pushed the ball to the throe-yard line , but there forfeited It on downs.

Mass. , Nov. 5.-Hnrvard won the great foot ball game on Soldiers' Held this afternoon by her superior kicking- nnd her ability to check Pennsylvania's guard-back formation nnd to turn tn ad vantage the miserable fumbllntr of the Quakers' backs. The score wns 10 to 0. It wns n hard , rlenn game , fiercely contested from start to tlnlsh. abounding in excltlnc and brilliant plays. In the irmrvelously short tlmo of llftocn seconds titter the game began Har vard had scored through Coombs' fumble on the kick-off , while In the second half a bo.iutlful goal from the Held by Burnett on a place kick ridded another five points to the score und clinched the game for the crlmsnn. Whllo Daly nnd Dlbblee were not only sure In ratchlntt Hnr ' kicks , and as a rule succeeded in mnklnp fifteen to twenty yards on the run back , Coombs , JInrrlson , MoMahnn nnd even Outland seemed abso lutely unable to cither Judge the punts or catch them cleanly when the luill was ap parently In their hands. When Harvard realized that the Pennsyl vania barks had not the faintest knowledge of handling punts , running with the ball was almost abandoned and especially In the second half. Dtbblpn nnd Daly did Home of the prettiest dodging ever seen at Cam- brldKe. Pennsylvania's tackles , Goodman and Garnett. were altogether too lively in cot- ting through and nailing Dtbblee , and the ends broke up the interference surprisingly well. This was , perhaps , the only dis couraging feature of the game from a Har vard point of view. With the exception of the last live minutes of thu first half wh < > n the plunging of Reid and lioal , and the magnificent run by Dlbblee , carried the boll tn Pennsylvania's twenty-flve-ynrd line , wtipre Haifhton. owlne to lnk of lme. Irl'd a goat from the field , the Q nkers stoid tip grandly. Their stiff rally In the last minute of play on their thlrty-ttve-yard line reminded one strongly of Yale's famous defense of her goal Inst year The crowd waft delighted with the kicking game. In Inn llrct part of the game Hiire's long , low kicks had more of n carry In them I than HaUghton'H high punts , but ns the game progressed the Pcnn ylvanlnn was fairly outpuntrd and two of his attempts were successfully bloc-ki'd , while every ono of Haughton'ti went off cinooth nnd clenn und at the end had n surprising amount ut power. It wns nt the quarter that Harvard outclassed Pennsylvania nnd showed In Daly ono of the bent quarterbacks ever seen In Cambridge. He ran the team with remarkable Judgment and was surprisingly quick In dUcernlng Pennsylvania's weak polntH. While It cannot bo nld , perhaps , that Harvard owfd her victory to Daly , It must bo acknowledged that but for the oure tackling of the stubborn little quarterback two or three of the Quakers who broke through the line would nave scored. Penn sylvania's ends were strong nnd sure , but Farley , who went In for Cochrano In the second half , waa superior to either. The line-up : Harvard. Position. Pennsylvania.

Michigan's heavy team defeated the Northwestern uni versity cloven this afternoon by a score of 6 to 6. The result was In many respects n surprise , us the game was expected to bean an easy one for Michigan. The contrary , however , proved true. Northwestern pre sented a , vastly different team from the one that lined up against Chicago and showed remarkable Improvement in every way. The men handled the ball better and got the plays oft quicker. The tackllngs were poor , especially In a broken Held. Michigan's guards nnd tackles did flno work. Stickle was used a great deal in the line bucking and almost invariably made his distance. A muss play on tackle was used a great deal and proved very effect ive. Uarrabcc , Wldcman and Caley all ran well with the ball , Caloy making the long est run for the maize anil blue forty yards. Four different times Michigan had the ball on Northwcstcrn's five-yard line , but was unable to push It over , losing the ball once for holding , while three times the purple held for downs. For Northwestern. Bothnc , Theme and Johnson , the little 138-pound back , were the stars. Johnson twice saved touchdowns by magnificent tackles , while Bothno's live- yard run after breaking through the line resulted In Northwestern's touchdown. All the scoring waa done in the first half. Ir. the second half the ball was in North- western's territory a great deal. The purple - plo players exhibited a tendency to hold the line and this may liavu coat thu game , as twice they lost tills ball on this account when within easy distance of Michigan's goal line. Left Guard Thorno of North western had ills neck badly sprained in a scrimmage in the second half and was car ried off the field. The teams lined up us follows : Northwestern. Position. Michigan.

( Special Telegram. ) The gome of foot ball this afternoon on the Tabor gridiron between Tabor college and Amity college was one of the best ever played In this placo. A largo crowd from all the towns around watched the Tabor players avenge themselves on Amity for the drubbing given them two weeks ago. Amity's line went like chaff before the on slaught of the Tabor boys , who made gains at will throughout the line. No score was mad in the first half. At the second call of time Tabor made first touchdown In six minutes and followed In rapid tfuccesnlon ivlth three more the ball being In Tabor's possession within fifteen yards of goal when tlmo was called.

B.-Yale this afternoon defeated the Chicago Athletic association's eleven at foot ball by a score of 10 to 0. The game started with the ball In Yale's hands. The team went tearing down the Held straight for the Chicago goal with terrific on-rushes until almost ov r the line , when the ball went to Clil- cag-oi on a fumble. From then on the fray was a d nperato fight over the gridiron. In the second half Yale substituted Grant for Allen at tackle , Harvey for Gllmore. Dunee for Mcliride. Blocovlch for Coy and Stlilman for Grant. Harvey and Stlllman seemed to put dash and ginger into the fagging Yale rusher ? , who were very much lighter than the heavy Chicago team. The lam ten or fifteen minutes of play was much botttr on the Yale side and cor respondingly weaker on the Chicago side. Yale rushed them down the field , as early In the game , and Harvey was sent over for the only touchdown of the game. PHINCETON AND THE CADETS TIE.

Throughout the game tha cadets gave evidence of being In better condition than their opponents , mak ing no changes Jn their lineup. Princeton played Injured men after they had ceased to be useful.

B claims the large , white rabbit killed In winter Is not u Jack rabbit , but a differ ent specie that stays white the year around. Which Is correct ? Reader of Sunday Bee. Ans. B is correct. The jack rabbit does not change its color , nor does any other rabbit In this country , as far as known to the sporting editor , except the swamp rab bit. This rabbit llvea In .tho northlands , but is sometimes seen along the Canadian border , especially In Now York. The white rabbit you refer to is probably an English Importation. It Is not a rabbit , but a large hare. If you saw it In northeastern Iowa , such is the case , for an English settlement there had a batch of hares sent to them and the animals have been breeding rapidly. OMAHA , Nov. 4.

The last of the Midway denizens to leave Omaha for some tltno have Uen moved out on the two-thirds rate by the railroads run ning to Chicago and to SI. Louif. The pas senger men feel considerably relieved and arc congratulating themselves that they have jecn able to send In a report to the Western Passenger association that the agreement on rates was maintained and that It was all done without the aid of Chairman Caldwcll. The record made by the Omaha passenger men on this business la said to bo uncqualed In the United States. With this business out of eight the pas senger men arc figuring on winter travel. It Is anticipated that travel into this city will show a marked de crease on account of the closing of the exposition , but there are other classes of travel that the passenger men are ex pecting to develop through the winter , and will bo disappointed If they do not secure considerable business from them. In dis cussing the outlook for passenger business here , General Western Agent Fred A. Nash of the Milwaukee road said to a Bee re porter : "Passenger business on the lines hero will naturally fall off some , now that the big uhow Is over , but there la going to be a good deal more travel than most pco plo anticipate. It Is true that many of the pcoplo out In the country who took the trip to the exposition will make the trip last them for some time , but , on the other hand , there arc several thousand people In Omaha , South Omaha and Council Bluffs who usually go away during the summer who have re mained right hero this season and enter tained their relatives and friends visiting the exposition. Omnhnn * AVI 11 Travel. "Now these people hero want a rest. They are tired and they want to get away. They want to travel and they want to have a chance to pay back some of the visits that their numerous sisters and cousins and aunts paid them during the exposition. A good many of these pcoplo will go south. This Is the class of travel we're looking for , and wo think It will counterbalance the de crease In travel caused by the closing of the exposition. During the summer the whole country came to visit Omaha. Now Omaha will reciprocate and go to visit all parts of the country. " Similar opinions are held by other Keen observers of the movements of travelers. The advertising agents of all the railroads are getting ready for the winter campaign nnd expect to create a lot of travel. The Union Pacific expects to take advantage of the popular Interest in Hawaii and will Issue an atractlve book on trips to that Island. Passenger business to Hawaii , to southern California and other winter resorts will bo boomed by the Burlington and the Rock Island roads. The lines runnlug to Chicago and to St. Louts are commencing to boom eastern nnd southern travel , es pecially trips to Havana , Porto Itlco and other colonial acquisitions. The steamship agents In Omaha report that the last summer has been the lightest season known In a great many years BO far as transatlantic travel Is concerned. The exposition is E.ild to have had more to do with diminishing the number of European trips from this territory than anything else. The number of persons going across the ocean this fall as well as these Inquiring about steamship rates Is said to be larger than usual at this time of year. Immigrant travel , which usually crosses the ocean In the fall and winter seasons , Is very good out of Omaha at present and promises to continue so for some ttmo to come. New Citizens for Neltranka. William M. Lowman of Grand Island writes to the passenger department of the Burlington route that the prospect for the location of a large number of settlers In that part of the state Is good. Several parties from the east and from Illinois are now making arrangements to come out to Nebraska. With this information comes an answpr to the statement that Nebraska could not rnlso wheat several seasons in succession. It ie from Israel Boyd of Roscland , Neb. , who cays : "I began raising winter wheat In 1896. That year I had twelve acres , with an average yield of twenty-two bushels per acre. In 1897 I had twenty-five acres , with an average yield of twenty-six bushela to the acre. In 1898 I had nfty acreg , with an average yield of twenty-nine and one-half bushels to the acre.

NO SERIOUS PROBLEMS ARE INVOLVED Only moment of Doubt IN CoHt DllUunlty of Arriving at Ac curate FlKiirrn rincca at $ iu.-oooooo. WASHINGTON , Nov. r . The Nicarnguan Canal commission , appointed by the presi dent under an act of congress directing n complete inquiry into the project with particular reference to Its practicability and cost , has about completed Its work and the present prospect Is that the report will be handed ! to Secretary Hay In about a month. The commission has taken a building on Fifteenth street , formerly used as the Ger man legation , and under the direction of Admiral Walker , with a force of thirty-six computers , draughtsmen , engineers , etc. , is at work on the report , the mass of technical matter which will accompaniit making In all the most elaborate presentation of the subject ever attempted. The commission Is laboring , however , to avoid prolixity and to centralization of the salient features of this great project , leaving the statistics and details to follow in supplement ! ' . This promises to give a report which will be In- tclllglblo by Its conciseness and yet suf ficiently comprehensive to meet the require ments of such a largo problem. The com mission has gone about Its work feeling that It was likely to furnish the basis for the final action of this government on the build ing of the canal. The conclusions reached by the commis sion will not bo announced until the report Is submitted. It is known , however , that on the two salient features practicability and cost the commission will report first , that the project of a canal joining the Atlantic and Pacific hy what is commonly known as the Nicaragua route la entirely feasible and practicable , presenting no en gineering problems which cannot be met ; and second , that the cost can be presented with a fair degree of mathcmatlc exactness , al lowing for excavation , construction and all other Items. The report will give this cost in figures , but the amount Is not yet known even to the commissioners , na It will depend upon tbo careful computations now "being made. The purpose Is to inako It as near mathematically exact a possible and not to glvo a mere opinion of the various com missioners. Admiral Walker hns already ex pressed the opinion before a congressional committee that the cost would be within $125,000,000 , and this Is understood to be his opinion still , nut the report will state a llguru not based on opinion , but on the care ful calculations of the many experts who are now at work on every branch of the project. One Element of Doiilit. The only element of doubt will be In es tablishing the unit of cost for certain esti mate * ! , as there may bo differences as to thin unit , depending on conditions of the Eoll , climate , etc. for Instance , whllo the com missioners may fix with exactness the total number of cubic feet of excavation required In such a vast undertaking , It Is not easy to fix on 50 cents or any other sum as the unit for reckoning the whole or any consid erable part of the work. This wlir be done as close as possible under the circumstances and the indications are that the figures as to cost will bo exceptionally conclusive In showing the utmost limit of cxpenso to which the government could be put If the building of the canal is begun. The report , It Is understood , will bo unanimous , as the commissioners are agreed on all the cost , the only difference being these natural shades of opinion as to the unit of cost on some of the branches of the work. The report win not refer to the polit ical questions Involved , but will confine Itself to the scientific and engineering prob lems. The political questions , It Is recog nized , are for the State department and for congress , and these will bo working out about the time the report Is presented. They Involve the question of concessions and rights granted by Nicaragua to the old Nica ragua Canal company , and quite recently tea a company of American capitalists ; also the question of the right of the United States to build tbo canal as a distinct government enterprise , without reference to private con cessions ; and finalfy the complications grow ing out of the disappearance of Nicaragua on November 1 as a sovereign nation , nnd Its absorption by the United States of Central America. Aa trtatcd , however , the commis sion will not deal with these political ques tions and will not make recommendations or discuss conflicting private Interests , but will confine Itself strictly to the project as an engineering enterprise. It Is known to bo the private opinion of some of the members of the commission that the government , nnd not private enterprise , IB the only means by which the canal ran be constructed. One of the most eerloui j obstacle * urued acainst the canal ue a cov eminent project has been the Crayton-Bul- wer treaty and the right of Joint occupancy and control under it claimed by Great Britain. Uut there Is a growing feeling that the sentiments developed between the two countries during the progress of the recent wnr will go far to remove this obstacle and will pave the way for a complete under standing between the countries.

The Fourth Ohio infantry , which passed through the city to day enroute from I'orto Hlco to Columbus , was paid the usual compliment of a recep tion at the White House.

With the president stood Secre tary Algcr and a number of regular and volunteer - | unteer officers. The large crowd which hart gathered about the front of the White House and the driveway from the street , kept up n. I constant handclapping as the column passed by. I After leaving the White House arm * -worn stacked In a nearby street , and the soldiers ! again 'returned ' und filing through the main : doors moved to the left and entered the cast room.

I Heal , organic heart disease Is incurable ; but not ono case In a hundred of heart trouble Is organic. I The close relation between heart Iroublo ' and poor digestion 'Is because both organs are controlled by branches of the same great nerves , the Sympathetic and 1'ncuhogantrlc In another way , also the heart Is affected by that form of poor digestion , which causes gas and fermentation from half digested food ; there Is a feeling of oppression and heaviness in the cheat caused by pressure of the distended stomach on the heart and lungs , Interfering with their action ; henc i arises palpitation and short breath. j Poor digestion alto poisons the blood , makes it thin and watery , which Irritate * and weakens thu heart. I The most sensible treatment for heart trouble Is to improve the digestion and to insure the prompt assimilation of food. This can best be done by the regular use after meals of some safe , pleasant and ef fective digestive preparation , like Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets , which may be found nt most drug titores and which contain val uable , harmless digestive elements in a pleasant , convenient form.
