Cot bo worse. We tiroko tho western hoodoo by winning" game at Colorado Springs, and we didn't Co much to Des Molnea, either; hut what we did waa good and plenty. Tapa BlU'a boys didn't propone to glide, entirely out of eight, and with Jutt a little good luck now they will be able to end In good form, even If they don't art out of lant place. It'a no disgrace to get licked If you go down fight ing. Remember what Baldwin Bald when he didn't find the North Pole or anything that looked like it. "Baffled but not beaten." That'a what happened to Omaha In tho pennaflt chkae thla year. We were baffled all right, but we'll be right up and after them next season. Rourke Isn't say. If iB a great deal (or publication, but In his quiet way be has announced thnt come Deeded (harajros will be made and the team will start next season with much better prospects than It has enjoyed recently. The Omahas certainly looked good on paper last spring, and If, they had only half made good would have been a factor In the race all summer. But disappointment came, and no one wtts more sorely hit than Papa Bill. He waa unable to better hlmaelf, and for a time vti unable to get men to take the place of seriously crippled players. Two at least of those men are entitled to more than the ordinary amount of credit for the persistency with which they have stuck to the game. Gondlng had an arm broken by a pitched ball early In the season, and went back Into the game before the In Jury waa completely healed. Thla hurt waa a serious handicap to him In batting dur ing the early games, and t some extent Interfered with his throwing. Eddie Hlckey has played for weeks with a torn tendon In hi right hand, but has gamely faced one hot drive after another when he knew that topping the ball would hurt him clear to his toes. Carter Yes a leg that would send the averngo rruin to a hospital; Genlns has Buffered for weeks from the effect of old Injuries, yet these men have stood up bravely and- faced the music for the glory of tho game and to help out the manage ment. This fidelity la something that money cannot buy. And others of the team have been as loyal, and have faced defeat with determination rather than despair, so that much of the chagrin at losing has been tost In the cheerful readiness with which the boys were willing to try again. And now for next season's team. ' Just at present the Hlckeyltea are facing little trouble of their own. In rehabili tating the Southern league, which baa few wenk members, It la proposed to In clude Louisville. It Is argued, and with owe 'force, that the home of the Colonels Is naturally with the Southern and that It would profit Mr. Tebeau much If he Yre to loave the American, association and cast his lot with the Southern league. Of course, this is purely speculative, and probably has as much foundation in fact and no more than the pretty little story sent out from Milwaukee during the week that a brewer up there Is about to buy out the present owners of the Western league franchise and. continue Jhs business at .the eld stand. This deal Is said to be con tingent on Bexton showing the prospective purchaser "the goods." If Sexton can show the goods to any one In Milwaukee be ought to be given all the money that changes hands In the deal. Another of the yarns of the week Is that Lucas Intends to give his Pacific National league another run. He says his towns are all good and his backers game, That's all that any league needs for success; but as Lucas' towns refused to patronise his teams and as hla backers laid down on him, and his players didn't get their money. It looks at this distance as If he were on a dead card. Maybe the cases are wfong, but evidence offered Is all the other way. Another of the subjects for conversation just now is the attitude of the minors con cerning the proposition of the majors for a national agreement. It appears on the sur face that Pat Powers thinks Ban Johnson wants to be a king; and one can hardly rwnu mie uuiuum vn mis topic wnnoui thinking that Pat would like to do a tittle king turn hlmsolf. Specifically, the minora object to the rdraft price; likewise to the attitude of parental authority assumed by the majors In reserving the right to disci pline the owners, managers or players of the minora Thla latter obstacle la not In superable, nor does the first appear to be. It la contended by some of the majors, James A. Hart of Chicago, for example, that the minors will be treated fairly under the draft rule, that only a minimum price and not a maximum la fixed, and that com petition will always determine the price to be paid for a star player. And that In sur rendering the "farming" privilege the majors have relinquished that which Is of mure value to them than the draft matter can possibly be to he miners. After the Powers push has exhausted Its hot air, the national agreement may be discussed calmly snd it Is not at all unlikely that It w.ll be ratified. One thing Is g.s.)lng in the extreme-no one haa objected to Oarry Herrman as the arbitrator. PRAQUE. Neb., Sept. I. To the Editor of The Bee: Please give your opin ion on the following dispute which occurred during a base ball game: A run ner was stealing third bsse and as be waa going to leap for the base the baseman stuck up lils knee and knocked the wind nut of the runner, who fell over unconscious within two feet of the baae. The baseman muffed the ball and ran out In the field to get It, came back and touched the runner, who was called safe by the umpire. The Infield pnrty protested the umpire's decision and demanded ' that the runner be called out. In order to proceed with the game the umpire changed his decision snd called the runner out. Please decide If that waa a fair deal. Shouldn't there have been called time or shouldn't the track been clear and the runner given the base Just the same because he was Interfered wlthT P. The umpire Is the sole Judge of such a play, and should give his opinion as he sees It. Under the rules of the game he has no right to change a decision once made. In fact he Is prohibited from so doing, but has ample power to punish a team for re fusing to abide by his decision. A runner deliberately blocked off the base when he would have been safe without Interference should be called safe; but It Is a very deli cate question to determine If the Interfer eace Is deliberate, and the rule most gener ally followed Is that accidents on the ball feld are unavoidable, and therefore the penalty of any misfortune should be borne uncomplainingly by the side suffering. In the Instance here cited, without the most positive and convincing proof that the third baseman Intentionally blocked off the run ner, the umpire should call the runner out and stick to his decision, whether the gam went on or not. GOSSIP FROM THE' GRIDIRON Foot Ball Caatcfcars Are Basy with Their Son a 4 s, Trylag te Pick Wlaalng Teaane. The opening days of college are still a few weeks off, but in the east and the mid dle west coma reports of practice of a few of the larger teama Northward hoi haa been their cry and there are several nun dred aspiring candidates for foot ball glory that have. Journeyed Into the far north with their coaches and trainers In the hopes of hardening muscles and strengthening lungs beyond the hopes of the most ardent of the later aspirants. Coach Williams haa taken twenty Penn ylvania men to one of New Jersey's sum' mer resorts and Is getting- them Into condi tion. The University of Illinois haa taken thirty or forty men to Spring lake, where they wtll spend two or three weeks getting Into shape. Purdue's squad baa gone Into quiet camp along the banks of the Tippe canoe river. But the great majority, of the teams of the leading colleges have given up the Idea of a two or three-weeks' trip Into some country place before the season. In fact the teama of the Big Nine have made an agreement not to begin practice more than two weeks before the opening of school and more and more of the universities are coming to the conclusion that the early training Is of little benefit and does not Justify the expense which It puts the ath letic board to. Little Is done at these foot ball camps beyond the toughening of muscles and the strenpgthenlng of the play era' wind. This the players can encompass almost as easily at home as In the camp and then only a 'few of the new men are seen In the camp and It la the old men who ret the benefit of the work, and they do not need It as much as the younger men who are not familiar with the methods of train Ing. Three or four years ago no college was considered a strong foot ball school un less It had a squad out training weeks be fore the opening of school, but this has changed, fortunately. The men that Coach Woodruff of the Unt verslty of Pennsylvania has at Beach Haven are showing up as a promising bunch of playera and they are being given a great deal of practice In punting and icon: - tm a t Aft 4 I -fm Vv.-w-- Regenerative Tublots Is the only reoog Itlii'd positive and permanent cum for Loat JJac'.lio. kI in all Its lorms all! stages. ll Is si-ienttrically prepared by the bet chemists In the worll The reputation of tii liiaiitutlon Is Bucti that all physicians know wlivii they stand sivunsor itif a rem edy, that remedy must be ent tly as repre sented.

Pennsy la badly handicapped Uila year by the loss of Dsle at quarter and Is working hard to fill the place. Reynolds, half In 1901, la being tried In the place, as Is also Zlegler, the former Penn Charter fullback.. Hurry-Up" Toet of Michigan waa with the team, on which he once played, the other day and gossiped a little about Michi gan and how he made his team. Among other things that he said was: I do not give my men over a half hour's scrimmage practice any day during the sea son, but I give them an hour's signal prac- ice. l am a great believer In signal tirao lc. because It develops splendid wlnl and endurance, and It also develops fsst play. do not use plays In series, but the quar terback gives the signals while tbe men are all tangled on the around after the game Of course. If the opposing team delays the same br feigned Injuries and calls for time my scheme of fast play is handicapped. We only beat Wisconsin Isst yea lor tnia reason, whereas we ought to have won by 60-0. By faat play I shift my method of at tack before the opposing team can catch on, and thua keep them guessing. If a man loafs in signal practice 1 soon persuade him that he la doing wrong. No. I am not a great believer In summer practice. We are going to have It this year. Din no scrimmage worn win ne none, ana the time will be spent In practicing sprint ing, starts and handling the bull. In order o have Derfert smoothness of attack I place my oackfleld men according to their speed, so thst they will sll hit the point of resistance at the same moment. How do we compare with the eastT Well, esstern men claim one way and western men claim another. Conch Slagg of Chi cago says that we could hsVe beaten Har- vara aecisiveiy last lau. Dtagg is a xaie man,, you know. Tost will be somewhat handicapped In beginning the season this fall, aa Ave of the championship eleven are gone from the ranks. All of his powers of organization and concentration will be needed for him to make a team that can equal the record of his last year's team and It la hardly likely that he can equal It. Stagg Is at work at Chicago and he pre dicts that the Midway school will have the best team In several years. The team his suffered somewhat from depictions and the material In sight Is not aa good as that of a year ago, but he refuses to talk much of his new material, so that there Is a feeling that he has some new men up his sleeve. Illinois, which meets Nebraka on Thanks giving day, is preparing material at Spring lake, with Coach George W. Woodruff In charge, and the outlook Is certainly very bright. There were eleven veterans of other years and a bunch of new men In the crowd that went to Spring lake. With sacJi men as Joe Wilson, C. A. Falrweather, Huntoon, Bronson, Diener, Kasten, Rump, Harmon, Bethel, Welley and Barter' back and a bunch of new fellows, who all tip the scales at 180 or more, there seems to be Uttle lack of material. The team has a new heavyweight In Hasselwood. who weighs a little over 250 pounds and la ab solutely green to the game. Another of Nebraska's opponents that Is of the Big Nine caliber Is Knox, and It begins ths year with all of Its old team back, but, despite this fsct and the record of the team last year, the Knox atudenta do not feel very cheerful. The new coach, Wlllard, Is an alumnus of Knox and haa a record as a quarterback on Columbia uni versity's team. But he ia a person who lacks executive ability and control and there la a fear that he will not prove a successful coach for the team. Columbia university la always one of ths teams that the Big Four In the east must reckon with and prospects at Columbia are brighter thla year than for several yean past. Twelve veterans of last year's varsity and scrub team are back for prac tice and there Is a liberal sprinkling of ne material. . The athletlo council haa rented a houae cloae to the college grounds for the team to use aa training quarters, and. with South yield In good shape, Columbia Is In good condition to take care of Its men. Coach Morley Is on the ground work Ing with tbe new men and he will begin at once to round them Into shape for the season. Both Tale and Pennsylvania play Columbia In New Tork City this falL The new foot ball rules still continue to perplex the players and every one Is busy planning the style of play that will carry through the season. As the discussion con tlnues It seems to be the general opinion that the formation play of the last two or three years Is bound to go, as It will be Impossible to teach a team two systems of play as radically different as the forma tlon play and the open running game In the short season. The open game with seven men In the line when the ball Is put In play must be learned for the sixty yards Inside and naturally the whole system of play will be fashioned after thla system on most of the teama It will mean a re version not only to the old line bucks with the backs, but also to the sensational end runs. These never proved aa sure as did the plays through the lines with a forma tlon, but the gains were large when the play succeeded. A variety of plays can be evolved In this end run by sending the tackle or the end around the end limteal of the halves or the fullback. Then there are the old crlsa-rroases and the double paas and all of the other old tricks of ths open formation. There are many who de clare that the en Is and tackles have be come so highly proficient that It Is Im possible to send the men around the end for long gains and only a season's play can answer the assertion well and properly, Another thing that Is expected to be brought Into the game again is punting. A weak team on the offensive will use the kicking game whenever It can. If It haa any one who can kick well. Then the quarterback kick will probably be brought out again and used by many of tho teims. Harry Crandall, who played halfback for several years on Nebraska's 'varsity, Is trying to secure the position of assistant coach at the university and will undoubt edly be taken on to coach the back field. Stub'a work at half waa well known while he waa on the team and he will prove a valuable conch for the team to ali John Westover In working up the particular parts of the team while Booth supei In tends the building of the composite teim. effect whlrh will do much to Increase the skill of the players of the' game. The old- time heavily loaded ball haa been relegated to obscurity and the new ball Is light and weighs but sixteen and a half pounds. With thla ball the gaining of points has become more a matter of skill and less one of mere strength than ever before and many of the stsrs of the alley will be forced to spend more time carefully prac ticing for the skill necessary to sweep down tbe pins. As It waa before, a swiftly thrown ball of nineteen or twenty pounds weight did not have to hit the headpln at all to make a strike. Its mere weight top pled over the pins. It Is not so, though, now with this lighter ball. It must be thrown accurately to secure the effect and It means more skill and less of brute strength. Locally there is a general disposition among the knights of the pin to look upon the new rule as a good one and satisfac tory In general. The most of the better players In Omaha have been using ths loaded ball, but they have all been practic ing recently with the new ball and are getting satisfactory results with the new ball, although they have not all gotten Into the swing yet with the light ball. But the most of the players are In fair practice, aa they have been playing most of the sum mer on different city tesms and around on the different alleys simply because the love of the sporUwas more than their fear of the heat and summer thirst that goea with all things athletic. HUNTERS AFTER GAME AGAIN Ret arm af the Mater Fowl aaa .Fait Sheeting Casae Close To. aether. The hunter has come bant to Ms own with the opening of the season for the shooting of duck and geese on September L The water birds are plentiful on the Ne braska streams and lakes and many of the hunters have taken advantage of the open season to get away already. For fifteen days flocks of duck and geese have been winging their way southward and they are abundant even close to Omaha. Oood bags have been brought In from near Omaha, with ten and fifteen miles, along the Mis souri river and on the nearby lakes. In the spring the water was too high for the hunters to get the ducks, but now there Is no such excuse and the bags promise to be heavy. Some of the hunters have gone out along the Platte and the Elkhorn and they send back reports of plenty of gsme and nice cool days and nights to add to the Joys of the hunting. It Is a month until tbe open season for chicken and quail, but many of the hunter have gone Into the Dakotas to hunt the birds, aa they declare that the Nebraska season Is too late for any chicken shooting and If they want them they must go to the states where the season opens In time. AMONG THE LOCAL BOWLERS Makeaa af the Uagas aad Other Matters at Preseat laser Dlseassloa. There Is still some Uttle uncertainty among local bowlers as to Just what the coming season la going to bring forth In bowling, but It la generally conceded by even the least aangulne that this winter will be more of a bowling winter than haa ever been known In the annals of the sport In Omaha before. Ths Omaha Bowling league will be In the field again with eight teams, although Ita makeup will be some what different from that of the precid Ing yeara The St. Charles and Oate City teams will be out of the league, but their places will be filed by other tt am equally aa strong. The Orphans wtil undoubtedly take the charter of the St. Cbarlea snd ths Oate City's charter will be disposed of at tbe meeting of the league thla afternoon. Next spring the stats tournament will be held In Omaha and the local league will bend all of Its efforts during ths winter season to prepare for this event In order that Omaha may be even more successful In this tournament than It was list sptlg when Lincoln bowlers were uniformly and persistently successful In their efforts.

Having faith In the value of hla pic tures, he haa sold his household goods and will go to New Tork to test the genuineness of the paintings. Tbe subjects of these sup posed masterpieces from a master hand are "Adam and Eve" and "Ecco Homo," are owned by Joseph Lehner of Iowa Falls and have been In the family for years. His first wife brought them to this country from Germany. She received them as an heir loom, part of an estate that waa divided among several relatives. Lehner's second wife sued for a divorce and sought posses sion of the pictures until someone con vinced her they were mere daubs. The hus band's faith, however, has not been shaken. and New Tork critics will be permitted to pass on the paintings and determine the value of them.

A sad romance Is brought to light by the approaching ninety-fourth birthday of Miss Mary Ann Terhune, who llres with her niece, Mrs. Harvey Green, at f5 Ward street. Orange, N. J. Miss Terhune has never been married because of a vow she took when she was 30 years old. She Is the daughter of the late Garrett Torhurfe of New Brunswick. She was engaged to be married to a young physician of that place. The day had been set, the bridal trosseau prepared and Invitations Issued for the wedding, when the physician was stricken with an Illness that soon caused his death.
