Golf has more than held Its own during
ths iHot yesr. Thin has not been true to
any gratifying extent In the west, which
hit! ot the open championship, which ni
held br Lawrence Anchterlonle, and haa
now passed to Anderson; the Nstlnnnl.
which waa held by IxmiIs James, and which
haa reverted to Travla, and the intercol
legiate championship, which waa held by
Clarence Kuan, and which haa now passed
to Frank O. Relnhart. The weat retains
on championship. Mra. Bernard B. ltorne,
a Miaa Resale Anthony, won the national
rent for women. The 4nly western star
to play ably for the weat In the big na
tional event waa Bruce Bmlth, who put out
Douglas, the Ions driver, and who lasted
to the aeml-flnala.
The amateur championship of the west
waa won by Walter Enn, who won the
coveted victory ofter a thirty-seven-hole
final at Cleveland, the finals bring con
tested with hla cousin, Clarence. As show
ing the high grade of golfer In this con
test It may be stated that Jamea, Byers
.and Fredericks, three of the seml-flnallsts
In the 1902 event, were participants. An
other source of aatlafactlon to western
golfers la found In the fact that the West
ern Oolf association haa Increased In num
bers and Influence. It now boasts of
fifty-seven clubs, as against forty-flve at
the beginning of the season. 'In this con
nection the golfers in what may be termed
the middle west, or rather, the transmls
Isslppt golfers, feel especially gratified
that their prowess has been demonstrated
at the expense of the All-Chicago team,
tha Transmlaalsslppl team having defeated
the Western Oolf asaoclatlon team by 21
to- 10.
Tha Chicago golfers can not get over the
fact that they were defeated by "them
westerners," and the Chicago papers con
tinue to give considerable space to the de-
Ire on tha part of the Chicago players to
get even. In this connection one of the
hlcago papers has the following:
At present the parent organisation of golf
In the United rotates Is composed of seven
members, live from the east and two from
Chicago. Considering the wonderful growth
of the game in the south and west In recent
years It would seem only fair that these
sections of the country should be repre
sented, and for this reaaon the executive
committee would make a very popular move
by Increasing ita number from seven to
nine members, the new appnlntmenta to
be credited to the Southern Golf association
and the Transmlssisslppl association.
The latter association has become quite
a formidable factor in western goll In the
last few seasons and It la only a' few
weeks ago that a team made up from mem
bers of the clubs composing it absolutely
walked awav with a so-called representa
tive Chicago team. The fact that the local
representatives were not, ty any means,
the best golfers belonging to the local
clubs, should in no wav detract from the
victory of the Trensmlssisslpnl men, who.
beyond doubt, could have given the nest
men we could muster the hardest kind of
a tussle.
In this connection, would It not be well
to arange a return match with the Trans
mlnslKelnnl association, to be clayed, say
next June, In St. Louis, during the time
that the Worlds fair takes place? The
Incut nlsvers could leave for St. Louis Fri
day night and spend the next couple of
Oays golfing and signt-seeing ana gei uhck
In time for business Monday.
Perhaps the most 'disturbing clement In
golf In the United State during the
present year has been the discussion which
has waged pro and con relative to the
all-match-play system at the expense of
tha qualifying round to which the golfers
of tha United States had become familiar
during the short reign of the game In
this country.
Ths all-match-play system was tested In
the national and western championships
' and in ths representative tournament for
tha Ravlnoaka cup at Onwentsla. And now
tha differences of opinion which were in
evidence at the beginning of tha Heaaon
still continue to ba a sore spot. Borne of
tha golfers assert that the all-match-play
system haa been a boon to the game, while
others are opposed to the elimination of
tha qualifying round as strongly as ever.
Tha tests are not conclusive as proving
that the all-match-play system Is for the
best, and until tha question Is settled there
will not be that peace of mind among
golfers that existed before the present
controversy was gotten under way.
of the two, and It Is upon such a test as
hat that a golfer should receive hM rating
Aa showing tha diversity of opinion ex
Istlng upon this subject it may be stated
that while In the United States attempts
ara being made to abolish the qualifying
round, in England, where all-match-play
has always prevailed, authorities like
Harold Hilton favor introducing the quali
fying round. Probably the best scheme
yet to receive a trial is the choice score
system of Dr. J. O. McPherson of St.
Andrews, whereby the thirty-two men
whose "choice scores" I. ., best Individual
hole figures for two stparate rounda con'
tltutlng the qualifying score are paired
at random, for 38-holo mutch rounds.
It will alwaya remain true that the
medal ' score Is the only Just and trile
criterion of a golfer's ability. It Is equally
true that a aingle round medal score should
not be' taken an the Just criterion of
golfer's ability. It Is not the phenomenal
cores which are turned In once in a while
by any given player which should de
termlns that player's Just rank, but hU
core card for the season, or for the entire
tourney, should be deemed as the only
lust basis upon which to determine ths
golfing ability of that player. One ,layef

As the rentilt of an accident on the gnlf
links at Ann Arbor. Trof. Georse Hempl
of the faculty of the University of Michi
gan has recently submitted to an opera
tion for the removal of his right eye by
Dr. Fleming Carrow. The accident hap
pened on the golf links. Standing well
out of the line of fllht of any ball from
the tee. Prof. !!"ml was fully thirty yards
from H. O. Knbcork, who was at the tee
for the purpose of driving. Mr. Babcock
swung hrd, and his driver breaking, the
head flew so hard at Prof. Hempl that he
could not dodge and It struck him In the
eye. No blame Is attached to the golfer
whose broken stick caused the painful ac
cident. Prof. Hempl Is an eminent teacher
of philology and English lln (ill tlci. It Is
thought that the promptness of the opera
tion will result In the saving of the sight
of the left eye.
This accident and others of a similar
nature revive the matter of golf ethics
nd etiquette. There fire certain well
established things in golf which are not
Included in nor made a part of the rules
as formulated by the United States Oolf
association, which govern the various con
tests held In the United States. Among
these Is one which provides that the player
who won the last hole shall retain the
honor until he has lost a succeeding hole,
and it Is also explicitly stated that no
other player shall go even bo far as to
make a tee until the player having, the
honor has driven. Yet how often we see
the spectacle of two and three and some
times four tees being made simultaneously.
There Is another little Item which Is quite
generally disregarded, and that is that
the player whose ball Is furthest from the
hole, or whose ball Is "off," In golf par
lance, shall shoot first after the drive.
Then, too, none of the caddies are al
lowed to step on the line of put to be
made by the rltayer opposing the player
for whom he may be caddylng. And It
goes without saying that the opposing
player will not step on or across the line
of put to be made by his competitor.
And neither is a player allowed to pat
the ground behind his ball with his club, nor
remove any obstacle, unless It la within a
club's length, and he cannot even do that
If It Is some growing substance. In a match
contest of any kind it is entirely improper
to ask any player how his game is pro
gressing, or even to speak to him, unless
the player in question first accosts tha
other party.
A well-defined knowledge and observance
of the golf rules, together with other mat
ters of etiquette that are generally ob
served, would do much toward, making the
game of golf mors enjoyable and Inviting.

Glen View, at Chicago, has held the na
tional amateur championship, which was
won by Louis N. James; the national Open,
held by Lawrence Auchterlonle; the west
ern open, held by Lawrence Auchterlonle;
the western amateur, held by P. B. Hoyt,
and the western event for women, held
four times by Miss Anthony. The latter's
victory In the recent national event at
Wheaton gave the club the honor of being
the first organisation in the west to attain
this prominence.
Harry Vardon, the world's greatest
golfer. In a letter to Tom Bendelow at Chi

With the end cf the foot ball season less
than two weeks away, the foot ball
critics are now figuring on which will be
the championship team, but with all their
prognostications but little mention Is made
of the University of Nebraska team. The
record of the Cornhuskers for the last three
or four years would seem to place them In
a position where they should receive more
consideration st the hands of-the foot ball
critics. The team has lacked that spirit of
devotion on the part of Its followers, both
at Lincoln and elsewhere, which goe3 fur
toward developing the proper college spirit
which goes In to win or die, or do like the
Spartans, come back on their swords.
The members of the team have worked
hard and have perfected what Is perhaps
one of the best machines in the west Of
course the writers on the eastern papers
will pass the team up with scarcely any
notice whateven until compelled to take
cognizance of the fact that the trans-
, mlsslsslppl states can produce as good an
article of foot ball as any of the teams on
the other side of the big stream. Booth has
worked hard to get his men end the team
In good condition, and there Is now every
Indication that the Nebraska eleven Is now
the strongest this side of the Mississippi
with the possible exception of Minnesota.
Owing to delayed Justice in the recogni
tion of Nebraska's claims, every effort Is
now bending toward the game with Illinois
on Thanksgiving day. This game will be
not merely a matter of local or state In
terest, but will attract to It the attention
of foot ball enthusiasts throushout the
entire west. Since some' drastic measures
seem to be the only method by which Ne
braska can break into the "big" combine,
every muscle will be trained to win the
Thanksgiving contest with Illinois. It hi
true this will have no direct bearing upon
the championship of the middle west. As
a matter of fact Nebraska Is not figured
upon In this matter, but the fact neverthe-
css remains that If Nebraska can score a
Ignal victory In this contest It may serve
the purpose of opening the eyes of the
members of the big teams In other portions
of the west to the fact that Nebraska Is
entitled to a place In the "combine," and
that the Cornhuskers should be riven a
voice In Its transactions and be afforded an
opportunity to book games with some of
the star elevens, so that Nebraska's true
relative merits as a foot ball team may be
ascertained to the fittl and complete satlu
factlon of Its supporters and adherents.
fit Is a question whether the change In pen
alty from losing the ball to losing twenty
yards has not made players more willing to
take the chances of being penalized for
holdlrg. Certainly there has been a great
deal of holding. When a team is on Its
own thirty-yard line with the ball and
loses twenty yards for holding, the penalty
strikes the average onlooker as being pretty
severe; yet any team would prefer to lose
the dlstsnce In these circumstances than
the ball. And this revives the question as
to whether the players have Increased

The f.ict that Nebraska defeated the
Haskell Indians by a score of 17 to 0. while
Chicago could defeat them by a lees de
cisive score 17 to 11 would seem to be am
ple ground on which to base a claim for
being on a par with the University of Chi
cago, which Is looked upon as a factor In
the contest for the western championship.
As usual, however, the matter of the cham
pionship will continue to be a question of
doubt and uncertainty. Should the Univer
sity of Chicago do the unexpected and de
feat .Minnesota, then. Minnesota will again
set up its claim that while a tie game was
played by It with Michigan, that In reality
the Mlnnesotans won because they gained
more distance at straight foot ball than
did "Hurry Up" Yost's proteges.
Under these conditions it v.'ould seem to
be up to Nebraska to get in the game with
Illinois with both feet snd clear heads to
win. Then the Cornhuskers will be In a
position to bid for a voice and a place In
the athletic affairs of western colleges.
Nebraska has claimed for some time that
It had this right, and the ' supporters of
the team think that way also, but the
fact remains that the western colleges have
not seen fit to give that recognition which
the performances of the Nebraska eleven
would seem to merit. Next year it is
hoped that Nebraska may be able to book
some games with some of the star aggre
gations of the west and that these games
may be contested in Omaha, whero they
would be accorded a record breaking audi
ence. The people of Omaha are getting
hungry to see aome of the really big teams
In a genuine foot ball mlx-up. That a
good attendance would be guaranteed Is
assured because of the general discontent
evidenced here after the negotiations look
ing to the pulling off of the Nebraska-Iowa
game In this city had failed. A game with
Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois, Wisconsin or
Chicago would be an event In ths history
of the game in the state of Nebraska, and
If played in this city would be witnessed
by a larger audience than has ever byn
noted thus far In any western state out
side of Minnesota. ,The athletic authori
ties at Lincoln recognizes this fact and have
given assurances that If It be within the
realms of possibility a game will be
booked with aome of these big elevens and
that it will be pulled off In this city.
A resolution has been placed before the
authorities of Chicago university asking
that that Institution take the Initiative In
an effort to abolish the Thanksgiving day
foot ball game. Generally speaking, this
question is exciting considerable Interest
among the colleges of the west. It Is cer
tain that the advocates of the plan are
actuated by the best of motives and It Is
equally aura, that the movement will come
to naught, and will kave the same bearing
as the effort which has been made to
ha.ve the big buse ball magnates dispense
with the base txill games on Memorial day.
jyothlng new or novel is embodied in the
question, ana me original mite-worn argu
mcnts are brought Into requisition. In
deed, it Is doubtful whether anything new
or novel could be said upon a subject which
has long been a favorite with instructors
In English, who annually assign It to their
classes in theme writing Just before
Thanksgiving day. One phase of the situa
tion seems to merit consideration, because
this Incident, coming on the heels of Dr.
Harper's scheme for athletic, endowment,
Indicates clearly the peculiar attitude
which the faculty of the university has as
sumed, apparently through Ignorance of
existing conditions, toward the general pub
lic. First, comes Dr. Harper's plan, which
makes absolutely no provision for foot ball
rooters st large, and now follows a plan
whereby local enthusiasts are to be de
prived, jof their unnual "turkey day" game.
These suggestions are especially remark
able, coming as they do from the I'nlver
sity of Chicago, for If any Institution was
ever Indebted to the public for athletic
success. It is that particular university.
Other western colleges will not take
kindly to tha proposition, because they
have previously been placed on record in
this matter and a vigorous protest ha
been waged against the abolition of the
Thanksgiving game. That is the one great
day among the foot ball youth of the whol
country. And the general public, too.
interested, fur It has been educated to look
forward to these big contests with a de
gree of expectancy rivaled only, by that
experienced by the contestants themselves.

fact that his mm have reserved themselves weather signals towarn them of approachincf storms than their achincr bones and muscles. They
know from experience how the damp, easterly winds and night air increase their misery and
rob them of restful sleep. Rheumatism is alyays worse in winter. Cold and dampness are
exciting causes; they affect the circulation, stop perspiration, and the poisonous acids iu the
blood, no longer able to escape through the pores, settle uptfn the nerves and tender linings
of the joints and muscles, causing inflammation and swelling and such terrible piercing pains
that no wonder the nerves are shattered, the health under
mined, and the patient often crippled and deformed for life. SfT'? ul7 .i

xvueumausm Degins anu aeveiops m me uiooa; it is
not a disease that comes in a night or that can be rubbed
away in a day, but is a constitutional, well-grounded blood
disorder that all the liniments and plasters ever invented
cannot remove. Yet some people will go on dallying with
external remedies for-years, leaving the real cause of the
disease untouched, the blood growing weaker and thinner
and the joints and ' muscles more . useless with every
attack. This formidable disease and Dread of Winter
is due to a general sluggish condition of the entire
system and the presence of uric and other acid poisons in
the blood. It is an internal disorder, that can only be
cured by internal remedies. The aches and pains are only
symptoms which you1 may scatter or relieve for a time by
liniments or other outside applications, but they gather in
some other part of the body, shifting frbm one set of muscles
to another, and from joint to joint, and frequently strike the
delicate machinery of the heart or some other vital spot.
Rheumatism is' never permanently cured till the blood has been purified and the sluggish system
aroused to better action; and this is exactly what S. S. S. does. It thoroughly cleanses the
blood and renovates the system by neutralizing the acids and expelling from the system all
acrid matter. S. S. S. makes rich, new blood, that warms
and invigorates the body and supplies nourishment to the
weak and diseased nerves. S. S. S. acts also as a tonic, and
as the general health improves, rheumatic pains are felt less
often and gradually cease altogether. It is the thin, acid
blood that is so easily chilled by the cold and affected by
every ill-wind and change in the weather. Rheumatism and
bad blood are inseparable, you do not have one without the
other, and the surest and quickest way to get rid of Rheumatism is to restore the blood to a
normal, healthy state. S. S. S. is composed of both purifying and tonic properties, just what
is required in every case of Rheumatism, It does not contain any Potash, Alkali or other
mineral ingredient, but is guaranteed entirely vegetable.
If you have Rheumatism in any form, write us fully about it, and our physicians will
advise you without cost, and we will mail to your address our special book on Rheumatism,
containing helpful information to everyone suffering from this painful complaiut.

vent anything of a similar nature in tha
future. Secretary Karpf said he thougnt
the loaded ball will be entirely done away
with at the next session of the American
Bowling congress.
