he make any more than others? Take

There is a difference In mistakes.

Returns After Victory
Praise For Bandonians.
The Marshfleld high school foot
ball team reached home today from
Bandon where yesterday they defeat
ed the high school team by a score
of sixteen to nothing. All the mem
bers of the stteam and Coaches Gra
ves, Prof. HewLt and C. F. Mc
Knlght, who accompanied theni, are
loud In their praise ot the treatment
accorded them there. "They aro
clean sports and the best entertain
ers we have seen In a long time," Is
the way they put It. They were met
at Coqutlle yesterday by two Ban
don boys and escorted them down
'the river and to ( tho Galller hotel.
Last evnelng, they were entertain
ed at a play given by tho Bandon
high school under the direction of
Superintendent Ostlen. The game,
Messrs. McKrtlght" and Graves say,
was one of the snappiest they ever
Marshfleld played In good form
and Bnndon's weight and grit were
all that saved them from having a
large score run up on them. The
game was full of excitement from
start to finish and both teams de
serve great credit for their playing,
which was clean throughout and
was not marred by wrang ing' or
any signs of unsportsman-llke con
duct. Referee McKnight's decisions
were well received by ever one. Mr.
Fo of Bandon, was tho umpire.
The game was called at 3 o'clock,
Bandon kicking to Marshfleld. By
a series of line bucks and end runs,
Marshfleld scored a touchdown,
Stutsman crossing the line just three
minutes after the game had been
started. Marshfleld was unable to
score again in the first half. The
Bandon line was very strong and
Marshfleld made most of Its yardage
on trick plays, breaking away
frequently for gains of from ten to
forty yards. Bandon punted a great
deal being unable to make any gains
against the splendid defensive work
of the Marshfleld team. Only once
during the whole game did Bandon
The second half was a repetition
of the first. Marshfleld made two
touchdowns. S, Brlggs going nround
the end on trick plays for both. H.
Brlggs kicked one goal. Wieder was
hurt In this half and had to be taken
out. Clarke taking his place at half,
Goss going to end and Johnson go
ing In at guard. Bandon's punts
were good and got the Bandon boys
out of several tight holes.
