" THE PROFESSOR'S
:: FOOTBALL STORY :
Kf Howard C. Warren.
(ma R iw Tan Horn itrarwl. HeprHated by
TIIE day of the great football frame
ira approaching, and all KrntrinK
ton wai wrought up to fever prlcli. On
the campui, at the eating cluht, audio
the town the talk waa of but oik
thing. "How are the nion to-day?"
"la Trovert' lrgny better?" "Will In
be able to piay7" "Any iign of over
training?" "Do you know what
trlcka they arc working up?" And at
on generally, be It obterred, in the
orm of quettlom for at thla tt-aaoa
of the yrnr the "Intlile" ia very accre
tive, and oiitahlc g""lp voric in de
tail almost with the nuinber of upeuk
era. In the abarnce of definite knowl
edge the niiiprniie waa lerrlllc. A pir.
it of nrrvoua unrrit pervaded the mil
Teraity, and, torlott work waa well
nigh Impoatlbl. Moreover, thla aplrll
affected not only the atudrnt body, but
many faculty t-irrleasa well, lnttruct
ora and younger profeaeoara were un
der lit away, perlutpt quite much at
any undc r-i'lnniru.
At "The Cloittcr," whrra four of u,
tralnrra of youth, live in contented
bachelorhood, the electric tension of
the atmosphere waa obvloua. Otir
conversation at meul and after wai
always alio lit football; lecture were
prepared without the uiuiil care and
thought; and 1 frur we all aprnt much
time In reading the athletic coliimni
of the dally papert which ought right
ly to hare been devoted to original re
search. "I don't know why It ia, fellow,"
mid Mil for. I, out day at dinner; ""1
dn't care a rap about the aiunller
ganife; I don't take intereat enough in
the in, even, to go down to the flcld
when they arc played In Kensington.
Hot when it cornea to the big onn, I
get to nervoiia it break me all up; 1
can't work and can't tleep for think
ing about them. The atraln I fearful."
1'ruf. M It ford hat a highly strung
temperament, but we all felt that Ilia
particular worda applied to our own
cane, too. Hut thla particular year
Mitford had an uddrd tourer of anxiety
in connection with the game, (iulld,
the great half-back, whom everyone
Iooked to to aecure the needed touch
down, waa conditioned In Mltfnrd't
eubjert, nnd thnt condition miiKl be re
niovrd before he could piny in the
championship game. Mitford hail Kent
liiin notice after notice, with no effect,
nd he knew the atinlent might t
lempt to take advantage of the focul
tie' sympathy with their cause, nnd
get around the condition In tome way.
Now Mitford win a moil contclrntlous
man, and he had tworn by all that waa
holy thut (iuild mimt pant li.ix exam
inntiun regulurly if he were to play in
the game; and yet hit heart waa with
the tram, and he knew braidet thr un
popularity he nuial expert to Incur, If
anything he did should contribute to
the defeat of Kriwington lu the great
evvnt of the year.
"What lout Guild, Mlt?" we asked
3il in one day at Utile. Mit looked up
with an expression of disgust, nnd
what he aaid In reply ia beat rr-pra-aented
by dashes and atterltka. After
that the eubjert waa dropped, nn fnr
aa we were concerned. Hut certain
thing became plainer a the dnya
paued by and the date of the game
drew nenr. It was evident that the
I'embroke team were improving won
derfully, and would give our men a
trememlou fight. And It waa nlho
evident thut our men relied on tiuild,
practically, to win the game for them,
lie wa t'liniiiploii kicker, and run
ner, and 1 ii-k li r, ull In one.
"If 1 1 it i lil i knockrd out during the
game we nr.- loat," .aid tome one at
the Cloittcr once. We all agreed with
the apriikrr in our inmoM hearts, but
a Mit waa prrarnt wp expressed no
opinion, and th lubject wan deftly
It waa th arcotul day before the
Tame, and the teain were to leave for
I'embroke the next morning. Our
anxiety could Lot longer lie sup
fretted. That nervousness and
rether. The worry an J cures of business or
home, overwork, Idss of sleep, improper
food all tend to irritate the temper,
derange the digestion, weaken the nerves
and undermine the health. This tearing
" vn of the life forces must be stopped.
The ebbing tide of health must be
checked, and new energy, new life, new
ambition infused into the whole system.
To do this Quickly and thoroughly use
Bffo Miles' NeffvSaae.,
It tfts directly on the nervous system, uuiets the irritation,
restores the wasted tissues as
Soli hy aS droggists on a guarantee.
"Ha Guild pUaed off tbat 6ondl
tion yet?" I ventured to eak Mit in
the course of the day.
"Oh, go bury younrelf," he n
swered, and my fear were corn-
firmed. With carte blanche from the
fuculty a to time, Guild had put off
lila examination till the laat minute,
and a fnilure now would be irremedi
able. That evening we were to have
a party of guet to dinner Mit'
frienda, they were and the talk could
be of nothing but the gam. About
Ave o'clock the doorbell rang, end a
party of atudenta appeared. Mlt waa
out after hi guetvt, and it fell to ma
to receive the men.
'We have corn to aee about Mr,
Guild' examination with Prof. Mit
ford," aaid the apokeaman. They were
all anxioua and nervous, but I though!
1 detected a certain note of defiance
in the speaker' voice. I oonaulted
with my chums, and at lost we found
the examination paper which Mit
had prepared for the occaaion. The
honor ayatem it in vogue at Kensing
ton, to they were allowed to take the
paper to Guild's room.
While we were at dinner 1h bell
Tang at leaat a down times. The
maid returned each time with the an
nouncement! "Some atudenta to aee
Mr. Mitford." She hud told them, of
course, that Mr. Mitford waa at din
ner, and they had left. It waa a dif
ferent pnrty each time, come to in
quire whether Guild had patmed. And
all thla time Guild waa in hi room,
presumably acrllililing nwny for dear
life. During the evening the bell-ringing
kept up, and Mitford each time re
flated to aee the caller. Our gucal.
who were out-of-town pe. ole, and, of
courae, deeply intereated In the game,
had been told of the clrcumMance,
and pliiinly showed signs of curiolly.
"Why, you almply must pnn him,
Mr. Mitford," Mild-the bewitching Mr.
Alton, the chaperon of the pnrty. in
her moat enticing voice. "Just sup
pose we should lose the game on that
"Madam," said Milford, putting nn
a dignity which is unusual with him at
home, whatever he be in the rlimsronm
"Madam. If he gels M) percent. I shall
part him;" and the fnir visitor sow at
once that she had tried toenrry her
tyranny beyond its proper domain.
At length our guests departed, nnd
Mit went with them to escort I hem to
the Inn. Boon lifter they hiul gone, a
student came around with Guild's pa
per. He wanted to remain nnd hear
the result, but we told him thnt 1'ruf.
Mitford was out and might not be back
till late. He left In a state of obvious
perturbation. At for us, words cannot
describe our anxiety. We talked nnd
talked, and walked rcttlcsnly about the
room and waited; but Mitford still
failed to appear. At last we went up
stain. Though I seldom rend In bed.
that night I thought I might profit by
a few hours, which would not in any
cste be claimed by Morpheus. Hut
what I read mode no Impression on inc
whatever. My thought were on the
gnme, and Guild, and Mitford.
Finally the outer door rattled, and
Mitford't step wai beard in the Intl.
"Mit," shouted Jim, "the paper's on
the desk in your study!"
"You mustn't come tip till you've
read It," chimed in George from his
"Klght!" I added, Involuntarily, and
kicked myself immediately afterwnrd
for doing ao,
A loud "hmm" was lilt only answer,
as he ttnlked Into hit study.
'fhere wnt silence above nnd belnw
for about half an hour. And 1 know
now that Mit spent most of thnt time
with Ilia eyes closed and his face In his
hands, in agony. He hiid rend the pn
per, and given liberal credit for nil Unit
was In II, and the figures siimuiri! up to
a total of exactly 45. Should he naive
bis scruples and let the mnii through?
If he did not, what would be his future
In Kensington? lie snw the sudden
end of hit popularity the game hurt
and hit fault! The conflict wnt long
"No, I must do It, whatever the ron
tequencet," he muttered at Inst, nnd
turned to write the fatal number on
the pnper. The room seemed suddenly
dnrk and cold. As he turned the pagca.
suddenly bis eye fell on a sheet of pa-H-r
on the floor which he hud over
looked, it was the answer to another
questionand It was right!
He Jumped up like a Hash. Our enrs
had been straining tocnlch some sound
below, He rushed into the hall ami
shouted triumphantly :
"lla's pnssed; he's passedl"
"Yca-a," wns Ihe yell of three voices
from above, and the agony wns over.
Two days Inter Guild made a 40 yard
run through the entire Pembroke team
for a touch-down, and kicked thegonl
himself. And thnt run gate Kensing

A I'rtlty Jsiissrst Story.
One of the prettiest of nil Ihe stories
relating to mirrors is that w hirh conic
from th far cnt. In this a nuin
brings at a gift to his wife u mirror of
silvered bronre. Then she, having mi h
nothing of tha kind before. i.kK in the
Innocence of her henrt whose was the
pretty face smiling bnck at her. Ami
when, laughing, he tells her it is none
other Ihnu her own. she wonders still
more, but is ashamed to nvk further
questions. Hut when at Inst hertiihe
comes to die she cnlls tier little daugh
ter and i. lo r ihe treasure she has
long kept bi.'.iicn away as a sacred
thing, telling her: "After 1 am dead
you must look in this mirror iiiornli."
and i euiii, nnd you will see me. !o
not grieve." So when the mother is
dead the girl, who much resembles her,
looks In the mirror day by day, think
ing she there talks face to face w ith the
dead woman, and never guessing it is
but her own shadow she sees. And it
is added, by the old Japanese narrator,
that when the girl's father learned the
meaning of this sir.uige conduct of
hers, "he thinking it to be a very pit
eout thing, his eyes grew dark with
tears "- Tr T'mes
