forward pass. Frank Long a lean
appeared on the field in an elaborate
pair of calico bloomers. Carl Reeds
played a splendid game throughout

There is ti grand old story told about
the supreme devotion displayed by the
women of Carthage. When their city
was besieged by the Romans, ropes
were needed; but, as there was no tlax
to make them in the city, the women,
headed by their heroic queen, came to
the rescue. They one and aU cut off
their glorious tresses and made ropes
out of their hair.

with a fountain pen the handle of
which was formed by the shell of a
dumdum bullet. One day the represent-
ative of a foreign power, excited by
the heat of the discussion in the inter-
ests of eternal peace, said to him
"My lord, it isn't right for you to use
