FALL SEASON IN SPORTS

Followers of events in sporting circles
are looking -with keen enjoyment to the
approaching Fall season. "With a series
of lively football games in view, the re

Portland), bowling, billiards and handball.
Indoor games of baseball and basket-ball,

spice to the feast of amateur contests

Football at Multnomah.
"Winning football teams have been the
feature of the Multnomah Club's history.
Good material and star players they have
had in most seasons. But never have crit

the game among club members than, this
season. Old players are faithful, and the
new men at the game, young and enthusi

put his men through a course of vigorous
training. Every evening the men have
gathered on the field, in rain or in clear
weather. First they were put through a
sharp, brisk course in the rudiments
running, punting, catching the ball. In
.this all the men take part, veteran and
novice, and twenty or thirty candidates
go through these exerisos actively. After
that the elevens are formed, and separ

tackle and center bucks, begins. Each
team charges at its imaginary opponent

Plenty of Candidates.
It is too early to pick the team. Two
evenly matched elevens could be easily se
lected, that would be a credit to the club.
For every position, both in the line and
behind It, there are men of unquestioned
ability. Only careful training and coach
ing in teamwork is needed to round out
a winning team. This the team will get
from Captain Pratt, and the coach, Mc
Millan. An important announcement in football
circles was the news of the formation of
a Salem team, with well-known players
and college stars as members. Games are

Xpast week the bowling tangle over the
disposition of the Feldenhelmer perpetual

trophy was held by the defunct Oregon

it has now been placed in charge of the

ENGLISH TRACKS AND HORSES.
California. Horseman Describes Rac
ing in England.
Tom McGee, the California horseman,
who went to England with "the Corrlgan
stable, in writing of English horses and
race-track methods, recently, says:
"The reason "that many English horses
do not show their true form Is that tho
English trainers, as a general rule, have
more horses than one man can success
fully" handle. Some have from 50 to 100
horses, and, of course, it very frequently
happens that a good one Is overlooked.
American trainers are very successful
whenever they get an English horse in
their stable. Tills was shown by "Wlshard
with Royal Flush. This horse won the
Royal Hunt cup at Ascot and the Stew
ard's cup at Goodwood, which Is the first
time one horse has captured these events
In succession In the history of the English
turf. Many of the English trainers are
adopting American methods and more will
have to follow suit. "Wlshard. Hugglns
and Duke use the time test for their trials,
while the English trainers use a trial
horse, but it is astonishing- to note how
many of the English trainers are buying
stop watches. They are all at sea just
at present as to what constitutes good
time, and they frequently ask the Yankees
for information on the subject. Trainers
are all finely situated in England and the
stables are kept up in perfect style. The
Heath at Newmarket Is just a large
prairie, and horses enjoy galloping oyer
"Racing In England is surely 'the sport
of Kings, ard is conducted much better
than In America. It is a nleasure to in
spect the paddocks. You never see col
ored men in their dirty shirts leading
around horses, but neatly dressed lads In
leggins and breeches. The starter has ab
solute control over the jockeys, and the
boys pay strict attention to what he says.
One judge does the placing, and one nev
er sees any kicks or complaints in the
paper. There is plenty of money here to
run for. No purse Is less than "COO, and
ther are plenty of $1000, $2000, J500Q and
510,000. besides four $50,000 purses every
year. Expenses, however, are much high
er than in America, as they only race one
or four days at the different tracks, and
there is a lot of shipping In consequence.
It Is useless for me to comment on the
American jockeys, as you are dally post
ed on. their doings. The Relft boys are
very popular, and are coining money.
Jockeys there get more in presents than
the best jockeys earn in the United
"Mr. Corrigan likes the racing In Eng
land very much, and has made numerous
entries for next- year. He was promptly
granted a trainer's license upon applica
tion, and has been treated In princely
style by the English officials. The Corrl
pnn stable Is to be "Wintered In England.
Tho old man expects to reach California
some time In November. In tho mean
time Trainer "Walden will take up the
Corrlgan horses that are to be raced in
California this "Winter."
HAGGARD OX GOLF.
Noted Novelist Snxns TJp Game and
Advise "the Duffer."
Rider Haggard, the celebrated novelist,
in a recent article, summed up the game
of golf In this way:
"And yet even for those who will never
really master it, the game is worth the
candle. To begin with. It has startling
merit, the worst you play the more
sport you get. When the golfer tops hie
ball or trickles It into a furze bush, or
lands it In a sand bunker, it is but the
beginning of joy, for there it lies pa
tiently awaiting a renewal of his mal
treatment "His sport is only limited by the endur
ance of his muscle, or. perchance, of hls
clubs, and at the end of the round, where"
as the aqcompllBhed player will have
enjoyed but SO or 100 strokes, the duffer
can proudly point to a total of twice that
number. Moreover, he has hurt no one,
unless it be the caddie, or the feelings ot
his partner In a foursome. By the way.
the wise duffer should make a point of
playing alone, or search out an opponent
of equal Incapacity; he should not be led
Into foursomes with members of the golf
ing aristocracy, that is, if he has a proper
sense of pride, and a desire not to look
"He should, even avoid the company of
members of his own family on these oc
casions, lest It chance that they lose re
spect for a man. and a father who repeat
edly tries to hit a small ball Trtth-a
stick with the most abject results, and is
even betrayed, by his , failure into the
use of language foreign to the domestic
health. .Here Is the advice for him who
has been bitten of the mania.
"Let him select a little-frequented in
land links, and practice on them studious
ly for about 200 days a year for three
years or so, either alone or in the com
pany of others of his own kidney. By
this time, unless he Is even less gifted
than the majority of beginners, he will
probably be able to. play after a modest
and uncertain fashion. Then let him re
sort to some more fashionable" green, and,
having Invested in an entirely new set
of clubs, pose before the world as a
novice to the game, for thus he. wilL es
cape the scorn of men. But let him not
reverse the process.
"Thus he who, In his Ignorance or
flr "" ih
pride, takevs train to Wimbledon, and In
the presence of 40 or 50 masters of the
art, solemnly misses the ball three times
on the first tee, may perchance never re
cover from the shock."

just back from an extended European
trip. President Thome, who played on
all the well-known European links, looked
hale and hearty after his year's outing.
He spent several weeks In Great Britain,
visiting all tho important courses with
the exception of Sandwich, which is sim
ilar to some .of the courses he had -previously
played over at Pau, Biarritz,
Cannes, Dlnard, St. Morltz and several
other Continental links.
Speaking of the American links in com
parison with those abroad, Mr. Thome
remarked: "Although the Scotqh coufscs
have finer sod, the American clubs have
more conveniences, both as regards club
house and facilities for play. There Is a
bleakness about the foreign courses which
Is in great contrast to the generally pic
turesque links in thls-country. Where we
have to haul sand to make hazards, the
foreign courses as a rulet are provided
by nature with sand galore, making haz
ards which a player Is kept busy trying
to keep out of. Most of the courses have
a thick growth of underbrush which Is
not Inviting. After looking over all their
links I begin to think more of what we
have at home, and I would much preftr,
taking everything into consideration, to
play in the United States.
"I came home In tln-je purposely to at
tend the Western golf championship, as I
am president of the Western Golf Asso
ciation, and am naturally very glad that
the outlook for good contests is so encouraging."

400 spectators gave him a great ha ha,

he makes tackles and when the play

of Barnabas. His peculiarity was that ha
always kept himself busy, and that when
he had no -work of his own, he would do
the work of the sailors.
One day he was" busy along tho rail,
and the stuttering seaman, looking that
way, saw him lose his balance and drop
Into the lake. He ran In an excited way
to the captain, and was trying to report
the incident, but could give vent to noth
ing more Intelligible than a succession
of sputters. The master divined from tho
look on the man's face that something
was wrong, and shouted out:
"If you can't say It. d n it, slny it."
The sailor took two hitches in his trous
ers, whistled once, and droned out in ft
"Overboard Is Barnabas,
Half a mile astarn of us."

The course of true golf never did run smooth.
No use swearing: over lost balls.
No man Is a hero to his caddie.
It's a wise man that knows his own scorw.
Blessed are tha duffer, for they shall ob
Many a slip 'twist tho rim and tha cu.
X good approach saves nine putts.
A low and sen tie voice Is an excellent thing
on the putting-green.
If at first you don't hols out, putt, putt
Tho pen-cll Is mightier than the niblick.
