New Plays Score Victory for
Carlisle After Many
Makes Three Goals In Four Touch
downs and Dashes Through the
Whole Harvard Line Only
One Rally hy Harvard.
CAMBRID6K, Mass.. Nov. P. The
memory of previous defeats was forgot
ten today In the victory of the Carlisle
Indians over Harvard by a score of 23
to 13. For versatility of plays, the Indian
team lias not bf-en equaled on Soldiers'
Field since the rew rules went into ef
fect. Forward plays, delayed kicks and
cross passes followed each other In rapid
succession until the Harvard players be
came bewildered and seemed utterly un
able to stop the march of the Indians
toward their goal.
The visitors scored twice in the first
half and twice In the second, and the
four times on brilliant roughing. The
Harvard points were made on two touch
downs and a goal from placement by
Captain Parker. Each of the touchdowns
was made on fumbles by the Indians di
rectly in front of their own goal line, so
that It was comparatively easy for the
crimson players to push the ball over to
a score. One of the Harvard goals from
touchdown was missed, but little Mount
Pleasant, the Indian quarterback, kicked
three out of four attempts.
Mt. Pleasant's Splendid Dash.
Mount Pleasant ran with speed, ana
his selection of plays was well varied.
His most brilliant effort was his dash of
75 yards through the end of the Harvard
eleven for a touchdown shortly after the
beginning of the second half. The play
wnn nne nf the most sensational seen on
Soldiers' Field for many years. The In-'
dians' quarter caught a Harvard punt
on his own 35-yard line and dashed
straight for the assembling players. It
seemed a hazardous play, out he proved
too slippery for the crimson men anil
went through the greater portion of the
Harvard eleven like a greased pig, and"
then shaking himself clear, he eluded
Ncwhall, who stood between him and
the goo.1, and then dashed for the line.
Score on Forward March.
The other three Indian touchdowns
were made through their success In
carrying off the forward march.
Through a fumble by Carlisle on their
own 7-yard line, two Crimson rushes
were made. Here brilliant plays fol
lowed for the next few minutes on the
part of Carlisle, but there was a futile
attempt on the goal. Finally the In
dians secured the ball on Crimson's 40
yard line and rushed it to the 25-yard
lino on a delayed pass. Another for
ward pass sent It to the 10-yard line,
and after two plunges In the center.
Mount Pleasant again signaled for the
new play and the hall was 'tossed di
rectly to the goal line, far out of reach
of any Harvard player, none of whom
was anticipating such a play. Cap
tain Parker's goal from the field came
soon afterward and brought the score
up to 12 to 10 at the end of the first
Harvard's Only Rally.
In the second half, after Mount Pleas
ant's sensational dush for a touchdown,
soon came the only Harvard rally In the
game. From Carlisle's five-yard line.
Harvard rushed the Indians steadily
back 25 yards, where a forward pass
was attempted and muffed by ,a Carlisle
player. Harvard recovered the ball on
the Indians' five-yard line and rushed it
across In three plays. After this the In
dians' goal was never in danger. This
was followed by another Carlisle forward
run. The Line-up:

WEST POINT. N. Y.. Nov. 9. Cornell
and West Point met for their initial battle
n the gridiron here today and the Itha
cans routed the Army by a score of 14
to 10. Cornell had the ball at the end of
the first half, with a score of 6 to 4, but
the soldiers changed this early In the sec
ond period of the game, when Philoon got
through for a touchdown and Beavers
kicked the goal.
This placed the Army ahead. 10 to 6, but
during the remainder of the game the
Ithacan team outplayed the local men,

goal scored against them, tried at the last
minute for a safety, which finished the
The weather conditions were excellent,
and there was as large a gathering at
the game as that which witnessed the
Yale contest last month.
Cornell won the toss and chose the
south' goal. Beavers kicked off for
West Point to Cornell's 15-yard line.
Hy a series of forward passes Cornell
carried the ball down the field until
Watson for Cornell made the first
touchdown and Waldes kicked goal.
The ball was kept in the air a good
deal by exchanging punts, and was on
the Army's 30-yard line at the end of
the first half.
On a forward pass, O'Rourke reached
the Army's 10-yard line. Walders went
through for four yards more and in an
other plunge got the ball within a foot of
the Army goal line. Cornell then was
penalized 15 yards for holding. Gardner
fried a drop kick but failed. After the
kick out Cornell punted to Gory, who
muffed on the Army's eight-yard line.
Walders went through for six yards. The
Army braced, and got the ball on downs.
It was punted out and Cornell lost 15
yards on a penalty. Beavers, for West
Point, made a drop kick and scored a

Philoon blocked Walders' kick and went
over the line for a touchdown. Beavers

SEATTLE, Wash.. Nov. 9. (Specials
Seattle High School redeemed Itself for
Its defeat in Spokane last Saturday at
the expense of Portland today. The final
score stood 23 to 0 In favor of the local
lads. Had the game gone longer the
score might have been larger. The sec
ond half was but 15 minutes long, instead
of the regular 25, as It was getting dark.
Latourette gave some brilliant flashes of
speed in running back punts and his work
was the feature for Portland.
The Portland boys were not husky
enough for Seattle and were frequently
laid out. Coyle reeled off plays in a
hurry and the big fellows swept Portland
off its feet. Coyle Interrupted a forward
pass by Portland and ran 20 yards. Only
a few plays more and the ball was taken
over five minutes after the kick-off. Two
forward passes netted Seattle 60 yards
and then Jay Smith sprinted for another

to 11.
The game today was by far the classi

battle. Over 12,000 people witnessed the

Fejiton s wonderful work was easily the
sensational feature of the day. His kick

played a magnificent game at wing, his

Marines Must Eat Canned Vegeta
bles During Long Voyage.
ington, Nov. 9. Canned potatoes are
the latest novelty to be added to the
Naval bill of fare. It has been custom
ary heretofore to use fresh potatoes on
board of American warships, but the
long cruise of the battleship fleet to
the Pacific presents a problem never
before laid before the culinary artists
of the Navy, and the difficulty is over
come by the purchase of canned pota
toes to take the place of the fresh
article. '
The Navy Department has authorized
the purchase of 100.000 pounds of
tinned potatoes, the first of this class
of provisions to be purchased for the
Navy. The canned vegetables have
been the subject of test by the Army
Commissaries in the Philippines and in
Alaska, and the reports of them are
most satisfactory. The difficulty has
been In getting the canners to put up
potatoes and other vegetables In this
form, for which there has hitherto
been little demand.
It is considered by the Navy Depart
ment that the increased cost of the
tinned potatoes will not amount to as
much as the loss In the fresh vegeta
bles, of which 500,000 pounds will be
carried for the ships destined for the
cruise to the Pacific Coast. The fresh
vegetables and the canned vegetables
which are to be bought for that occa
sion will not suffice to furnish the ships
with potatoes during the entire cruise,
and additional arrangements will have
to be made for supplying potatoes and
other vegetables during the voyage.
The potato will not keep at sea more
than eight weeks, and in that time the
loss may be kept down only by great

Gardner's House Full of Pictures.
Frank L. Gardner's house, built along
the fortifications of Paris at La Muette,
on Avenue Raphael, and to the west of
the Pnssy district, is famous among
Parisians as well as his own countrymen
It Is filled with art objects, which he ha3
gathered from many sources, at an ex
penditure, say those who should know,
of little. If any, less than a round two
millions of dollars, not francs.
Gardner started life In Philadelphia.
As a theatrical agent or manager he
went to Australia. There he deserted ths
business end of histrionics, went in for
gjld mining, struck it rich and amassed
a fortune; how large may be conjectured
only, but Parisians and his countrymen
here put It at from 50 millions to one and
a half times that great sum dollais
again, rot francs. For some time after
coming here he remained president of the
Golden Horseshoe Mining Company, and
at one time was Interested in the manu
facture of automobiles. He relinquished
his mining presidency some time ago,
however, has given up automobile mak
ing, and Is now a man of leisure. He
had lived here 20 years and knows every
body who is In the swim.
Gardner" art collection really is worth
while, although, of course, it contains
some things probably that are not of the
first water: He owns one of the five au
thenticated detached paintings by Michael
Ai gelo. He hHS a "life-size"-portrait of
Philip II.. by Titian, and Raphael s cele
brated Venus and Cupid, besides a lot of
statuary, ivory carvings and other fine
things. A baptismal font made for Na
poleon III Is also in Gardner's possession
and, with fine American lack of rever
ence for imperial relics, he has turned
it into a bird cage. He likewise owns a
music box which was presented to that
son of the first Napoleon who was made
King of Rome and called l'Aiglon, anil
who lives again on the stage sometimes,
In the person of Sarah Bernhardt i.-r
Maude Adams, as the case may be.
Gardner's greatest joy perhaps is the
Venus and Cupid by Raphael, for which
he paid $75,000. It was originally In the
collection of a certain Prince Borghese,
an Italian of the same family as the
Prince of that name who recently outdis
tanced all competitors in an automobilo
trip from Pekln to Paris. Gardner had a
great time getting the picture to Paris,
owing to the Italian government's rule
that no great objects of art should Lo
taken out of Italy.
The canvas, which is about 36 by 48
Inches In size, was, and still Is, Inclosed
under-glass In an elaborate gilt frame.
In order to make Its removal easier the
purchaser had a part of this frame re
moved and then hired a clever Italian
artist to paint another picture on the

"It's an 111 wind that blows nobody
good." The present financial flurry
has cc-rtainly given a number of Port

for a long time to come. Prices are
down, there is no question about that.
Of course, everyone must realize that
present iinanclal conditions are but
temporary. It is just a sort of "thun

a little shower In which a few high
financiers may get wet and a sort of
general scurry on the part of every
body to get under cover; "but, never
fear, there is too murn wheat, timber,
gold, too many apples and too gener

ties on the Pacific Coast, and particu

beautiful picture, but the "Child" has
wings, while the "Madonna's" face has
not a trace of a Madonna in Its expres
sion and no halo encircles the head. Mr.
Gardner has been offered by a London
collector $165,000, more than twice the
price he paid, for the canvas.
The Gardner collection Includes several
fine Rembrandts, besides the works of
other noted old and new masters. His
religious and ecclesiastical pictures are
unusually good. He Is fond of the auto
mobile and Is often seen at the races.
Some years ago he owned a string of
horses, but he disposed of them long ago.
The Famous Hoff Clianteau. .
Located about 35 miles southwest of
Paris, the Chateau du Breau, now occu
pied by Mr. and Mrs. John Jacob Hoff. is
one of the most famous American houses
in all France. Mr; Hoff Is a Standard OH
man, of religious temperament and a
prominent supporter - of the American
Presbyterian Ohurch, on the Rue de
Berri, of which the Rev. Chauncey Good
rich Is pastor. It is the second largest
and most prosperous Protestant church
In the French capital, the American Epis
copal Church, on the Avenue de l'Alma,
of which the Rev. Dr. J. B. Morgan Is the
rector, being first.
Mrs. Hoff was Grace Whitney, of De
troit, the daughter of a lumber king, and
she is counted the richest American
woman in her own right now living In
Paris. It is understood here that her In
heritance, on her father's death, includ
ed a fund that produces $25,000 a year,
which, by the terms of the will, she Is to
devote to philanthropic purposes. At all
events, her charities have made her fa
mous, alike in Paris and the cities of the
states, and the Hostel for American Art
Students on the Boulevard St. Michel, In
the Latin Quarter, the Young Woman's
Chrlstlai Association in the Rue Ue Tu
rin and the tea room In the Rue Cambon
are as famous as their founder.
The Chateau du Breau is near the Ablls
station on the Orleans railroad, and not
far from Rambouillet, but Mr. Hoff, who
is at hl. office in Paris daily, except
when he lakes his "holidays." comes to
town In one of the half-dozen autos
which' the Hoff establishment boasts.
The chateau was built in the time of
King Henry IV, the old moat and draw
bridge still exists, and the grounds cover
60 or 60 acres at the least.
At one time it was known as the' "Cha
teau du Breau sans Nappe," because of
the big stone table in the grounds of the
place, from which Henry IV Is said some
times to have dined al fresco occasionally
without having any one take the trouble
to lay the cloth. The legend may or may
not be true; the stone dining table still
stands In one of the many gardens of the
Du Breau grounds, and is the object of
much curiosity and comment.
Much of the estate is covered with fine
old trees, growing thickly as In a forest
In some parts, but In others intersected
with well-kept walks and drives, while
near the great house there are broad
lawns, elaborate gardens and "plashing"
fountains, the whole forming one of the
finest private parks in France.
Tuck's Villa at Malmalson
Edward Tuck, another rich American
resident of Paris, has a villa adjoining
the famous Chateau Malmaison, where
the Empress Josephine died, and has
bought all the land nearby that he could
get. He Is a brother of Judge Manna
duke Tuck, of Egyptian achievements
and fame, and of such wide sympathies
and friendships that he has both John
.Plerpont Morgan and William Jennings
Bryan as his guests when they are In
Paris, although I have not heard that he
ever had them at his house together.
He has finished and furnished his place
in fine style; so fine. Indeed, that some
enthusiastic visitor has described It as
"hardly less splendid than a royal pal
ace." Tuck Is a man of great wealth and
a devoted automoblllst. He has len
made a knight of the Legion of Honor
for his charities, and he Is a prominent
member of the American Episcopal
Sail de Jonge, whose house is on the
Avenue d'lena, has been a Parisian resi
dent for about 15 years, and although his
name looks about as foreign as It pos
sibly can. Is a sure-enough American,
who will be remembered by some old
time New Yorkers as a broker of other
days, with the Vanderbllts among his
steadiest and most profitable customers.
He is tall, wears side whiskers, and la
supposed to have barrels of money, much
of which he has spent on pictures and
other beautiful things, the possession nt
which has made his house known as a
real treasury of art.

the famous Chateau Sans Souci. located
at Bellevue.afewmllps to the southwest of
Paris, near Saint Cloud. It Is a place
of much historical Interest, and near
by there are remains of an under
ground passage that used to connect
the house with one of the several royal
chateaus In the neighborhood. The
Marquis d'Oyley looks to be 60 or 65,
but very well preserved. He Is tall
and very straight, perhaps because of
his life-long devotion to fencing.
Swordsmanship appears to have been a
hobby with him; it was his Intention to
make his son, the late Alester Evans,
the finest swordsman in ail France.
Such a decision would not seem very
important one way or another In the
United States, but In France It made
the Marquis and his son almost per
sonages, especially as the most ex
pensive fencing teachers were h)red for
the younger man, who early showed,
that ultimately he might realize his
father's ambitions.
Early In the 20s. however, young
Evans killed himself for a Peruvian
beauty with whom he had been infat
uated for some time, and from whom
his parents had tried to separate him,
but in vain. The death of young Evans
made plenty of stir, alike In the landed
American colony and out of It. It was
hinted freely that possibly his death
was not suicide, but nothing came of
the hints. He had threatened several
times to kill himself, and once had sent
premature news of his suicide to his
father and mother, so when he was
really dead they did not believe the
message they received about it.
Alfred -Clark, well known in the
commercial section of the colony for
some years, has done so well that he

Mr. Clark hopes his art collection will

The two most famous American
owned houses In Paris, of course, are
the Gould - Castellane palace, at the
corner of the Avenue Malakoff and the
Avenue Bois de Boulogne, and the
house built in the Place des Etats Unls
by Julian Story as a residence for him
self and his songbird wife. The Amer
ican Ambassador has occupied the lat
ter house for some time; It belongs to
Story and not to Eames, and now that
they have been divorced she is not
likely ever to live In it again.
Since the divorce between the Count
Castellane and Anna Gould she has
occupied the replica of the Grand Tri

President Corey, of the steel trust, for
some time after his marriage with Ma

few miles from Paris. Nobody in Paris
knows whether he means to occupy It
again and nobody cares much whether
he does or not. His arrival at this
metropolis of pleasure attracted scant
attention, as perhaps he hoped It would

little of an Impression even upon the
American colony that most of Its mem
bers have forgotten where the chateau
is located, even.
