TOUGHER THAN WHITE! !
As a matter of prosaic fact, these
Sard-working and well-behaved wards
of the nation have been from the start
models of disciplined and educated con
duct on the football field as welt as off,
says the correspondent of an exchange.
These lads are Intensely fond of foot
tall, and they have left In them an In
herited Indifference to hurts and a
toughness of fiber that are their
strongest qualities when added to
swiftness and agility of movement. I
have seen them play through a hard
game without one call for "time out"
because of injury, and nearly every
one who has seen them play must have
noticed the fierceness of their tackling;
and their fashion of breaking out of a
scrimmage like so many rubber balls.
Their weakness is an argument in
favor of the claim that football Is a
question of the trained mmd as much
as the powerful body. It Is mental
alertness and adaptability that the
Carlisle players find themselves lacking
when they meet the first-class teams.
To analyze and meet the unexpected

mind Jf the Indian, and he cannot
make as quick a change of mental base
as the white youth. This Is .to be ex

years, he is fashioned into the clean.

Washington seems to be producing
some curious specimen of precocious
young girls of late, says the P.-I-. A
15-year-old girl of Spokane stole the
contents of her grandfather's purse to
buy a trosseau for her coming mar

Whatcom threatened to kill herself be
cause her parents objected to her en
feagement to a boy of 16. Then she
went out Into the woods and fired two
shots Into the air to make her parents
believe she had carried out her threat
while aha walked to a neighboring
town and secured work. We shall
hear of children In the kindergarten
eloping before long. In fact, a truant

girl found her married and busy In the

If Gen. Reyes carries out his threat
there will be a general raise in the

The weather is now moat propitious
