Madera Americans.
"Ye Merry Game of Football from
Ancient Times Till Now" Is the title
of an illustrated article In St Nicholas
from the pen of N. O. Messenger. The
Greeks invented the sport, and through
the Romans It reached the Britons. In
the time of Queen Elizabeth football
waa in high favor. It was played in
the city streets, on the commons, and in
country lanes. There was not much
rule or order to the game, the object
being merely to put the ball into the
enemy's goal, by fair means or by foul.
The goals might be a mile apart, with
ditches and hedges and highroads' be
tween. The players struggled In ear
nest, and broken bones were no rarity
in the rush that followed.
This was probably the roughest and
most brutal period in football's history.
The accounts of the times speak fre
quently of accidents, and too often
there were fatal incidents in the play
ing of the game.
Shrove Tuesday was football day in
those times, and then the whole popu
lace went football mad. Every one
turned out to kick the ball. There was
one grand scramble to reach it as it
was punted down the streets, over
housetops, and across commons. The
merchants barred shop windows and
doors as the merry crowds surged
through the streets, for scant heed was
given to any obstacle that stood in the
way of the pursuit of the ball. Some
times two or more crowds. In chase of
the flying pigskin, fell foul of one an
other's course, and then there was a
to-do, and the strongest held the right
of way, perhaps carrying off both balls,
and causing the other crowd to join In
their pursuit
With the year 1800 the game began
to be adopted by English schools and
universities as the leading sport. In
1863 an association was formed, and It
was made a scientific sport At this time
the game was played differently by dif
ferent universities. Rugby permitted
carrying the ball, holding runners,
charging and tackling, while Harrow
and Winchester only allowed kicking.
In 1871 the. Rugby Union was formed,
and rules laid down. Prior to 1875
American universities had paid little
attention to football. It was Harvard
that brought the game to the United
States, and In order to have a foeman
worthy of its steel taught it to Yale.
Old Ell" took gracefully to the drub
bing that was Involved in learning the
first lesson, which was learned so well
that for many years thereafter Har
vard had no more victories.
The Rugby game has been developed
in America mainly along the lines of
Interference and tackling. The -Yankees
were quick to perceive advantages
which could be gained in this direction
and put them Into play. In 1886 Prince
ton Introduced the "wedge," using It
against Harvard, who in turn took it up
against Yale next year. Then Harvard
went one better and brought out the
"flying wedge," which, with the "V,
the "push, and the plow," are perma
nent 'features of football work. .
In the perfection of football playing
Into a scientific sport from the old
rough-and-tumble games of the past an
Involved system of signals has come
into use. The signals are made by call-
ing out numbers.
There seems to be no lessening of
interest In the sport There may be as
many as twenty thousand spectators,
and the great game of football, which
began with the Greeks, was carried on
by the Romans, developed by the Brit
ish, and perfected by the Americans.

Mystic Flsrnr e Pursued Franklin John
son Throncn litre and to Death.
In the long life of Franklin Johnson,
who died, after a week's illness of pneu
monia, at his residence, 61 West 49th
street. New York, recently, the figure
7 or a combination of 7s occurred so
surprisingly In connection with every
event of Importance that befell him
that It was only fulfilling a present!
meat he had frequently expressed when
his death occurred In his 77th year.
Mr. Johnson was born in 1825, which,
by a process of subtraction and add!
tion, easily resolves Itself Into a com'
bination of 7s. His wife was born on
the 7th of a month and their marriage
also occurred on a 7th. Their only
child, a daughter, was born on a 14th
and died on the 21st of a month, in her
14th year. . .
Previous to living at 61 West 49th
street Mr. Johnson had resided at 77
West 52d street, and finally, yesterday
was the seventh day since he was taken
with a chill, which developed Into
pneumonia and caused his death. '
At oe time Mr. Johnson feared that
he would die in his 67th year, but when
he passed that period In his life he had
the utmost confidence that he would
live until he reached his 77th vir
BeyWd that period, however, he had no
expectation of living.
Mr. Johnson was the last of one of
New York's oldest families, says the
New York Herald. His grandfather
served under Gen. Washington, and his
father was for many years one of the
best-known contractors In the city. His
mother was a cousin of Ethan Allen.
Of his ten brothers and sisters there
are no male descendants known to the
family here, and Mr. Johnson leaves no
children, his wife alone surviving him.
He had not been In active business for
many years. .
Some Explanation of Its Working- by
a Texan Abroad.
Some ten or more years ago, says
man from Texas, we had occasion In
our town to send one of our prominent
citizens to England to look after some
business of a p'rivate character
which he, with half a dozen more of us.
was Interested. He was a bit raw, as
you might say In the East, but for our
purpose he answered admirably and we
shoved him to the front and let him
loose among the effete Inhabitants of
Britain. I don't know what he didn't do
or say over there, for wet could only get
Information by hearsay, but an Ameri
can, who met him one night at a club,
told us of a conversation which he had
heard on that occasion. There. was a
general talk on, the' subject of the wild
and woolly manners of the Southwest
and the Texas ideas of justice.
We couldn't have anything like that.

an Englishman.
No, I reckon not," responded the
Texan; "It takes a special trainln' that
you folks won't ketch up to f er a good

"I should hope not," laughed the Eng
"'Tain't your fault, though," con
soled the Texan; "you can't expect to
have all the best things over here, you
It's a good thing, I know," admit
ted the Englishman, "but yet I think
the system is most defective. Judge
Lynch is not always in the right"
I don't know about that," said the
Texan, shaking his head, doubtfully.
Now," said the Englishman, conclus
ively, "are you prepared to say lhat
justice is always promptly administer
ed in this manner?"
The Texan hesitated a moment and
showed unmistakable signs of falling
to uphold his cause.
I reckon you're right. Colonel," he
said. "Sometimes the rope breaks or a
gun misses fire the first time, but you

Entomological Occurrence of More
Ordinary Interest.
An event of more than ordinary In
terest transpired In my office yesterday
noon. The large female tarantula shed
her skin for the second time since she
has been In captivity. Those familiar
with insects, spiders and related crea
tures are aware that they are Incased
by a hard, unyielding Integument In
crease of size la permissible only when
the skin is shed, and one that has been
newly formed beneath expands to the
requisite degree. This is a process con
stantly occurring in nature, and ever
excites Interest In the beholder. When
a large spider, three inches long, throws
off the old integument it is a thrilling
sight.' In the present case the taran
tula had evidently been feeling unwell
for some days, a condition frequently
preceding this process among insects.
and yesterday morning she was, found
lying- upon ber back and apparently
dead, but moved a little upon being dis
turbed. She lay thus until about 12:15
o'clock, when the rustling of her move
ments made excited attention. The old
skin was ruptured about the thorax in
such a manner that the top could be
removed entire, and through this open
ing the giant spider was literally work
ing out of her old skin. This was ac
complished by the aid of the eight legs
and the two leg-like palpi. At the end
of an hour the change had been effect
ed. The spider lay upon her back, be
side the perfect skint resting from the
severe exertion. This tarantula was
unusually large before she moulted,
and Is now of still greater size. She
came North In a bunch of bananas
about two and one-half years ago, and
until last January was the pet of Dr.
J. M. BIgelow. While under his care
one skin was shed, and is now in my
possession. An idea of the increase in
size attendant upon moulting may be
gained by comparing the dimensions of
the dorsal piece of the skin shed about
the latter part of 1896, when under the
care of Dr. BIgelow, and the on shed
yesterday. The first measured one inch
and the second measures one and one
fourth Inches. Therefore the present
dorsal piece will probably be propor
tionately larger when fully expanded.-

Bad English.
Men and women of all classes break
the rules of grammar nowadays, pre
ferring picturesque to correct speech
but the offense is most often committed
by the poor. Yet bad English is not a
necessity of poverty, for there Is not a
man or woman pr child In this 'broad
land of free schools who is compelled to
say "I knowed" or "I seen" or "I have
saw," or any one or all of dozens of the
most glaring and inexcusable outrages
of syntax. There is no more necessity
for the poor person to speak Incorrectly
than there is for the most favored of
our people. Schools and newspapers
and books are within the reach of all at
absolutely no cost save time and a little
thought . and application. It Is not
asked or expected that any person use
perfectly pure speech, for a certain lat
itude of language is permissible; -but
there is no possible excuse for such er
rors of Bpeech as prevail among the so
called lower classes, which Includes
thousands of people who have plenty of
time to talk and read. The root Of the
matter lies In the carelessness and In
difference of parents and teachers who
neglect the children in their charge at a
time when they are learning the lan
guage, not out of grammars, but out of
the mouths of their elders, and of each
other. It Is as easy to say "I knew"
or "I saw" or "those things," as It Is to
say T knowed" or "I seen" or "them
things," and why let the children use
that which Is more difficult and harsher
than that which is easier and softer?
