Tuesday at 3-.30 o'clock In tho aftornoon, when tho heavy traffic from four converging rolnts had got into nn Incxtrlcablo tangle at Ilydo Park corner, the carriages of a wedding party returning from church became mixed up with a struggling, Jammod mass of vehicles of ovcry description, drivers shouting nud womon screaming nnd orylng In tho Inky gloom.

Tho rent of the house as fS.COO, but she only paid one quarter's rent. Sir Frederick Miller recovered $2,100 from the agents for damage done to his furniture during her tenancy. The evidence showed that the woman had tolerably good connections, but was unable to be of benefit to Amoiicnns who hunker after the smart sovlcty.

Thero were private dynamos in tho offices, employing sixty department managers and accountants, and a private telephone evchango connecting tho multitudinous departments with ono another, with tho city and with nil Kurope. Whllo tho visitors wero admiring American Ingenuity, Trlme Minister Wal-deck Rousseau telephoned to his brother-in-law In Londonfrom the manager's desk.

The French visitors expressed unbounded admiration. Thn circus will remain In Paris five mouths, running special excursions from tho suburbs direct Into the building.

Seeing that no man Is selected for the "varsity crewn without undergoing a vigorous physlrat examination, the per centage of athletes who die young, tbelr constitutions having been weakened by arduous training. Is unduly high. A vigorous correspondence has been proceeding In the London press lately on tho comparative politeness of different races tow aril their women, In which It Is alleged that tho treatment of womon In America by men In the street cars came In for rough criticism, and It Is claimed that sis a whole civility toward the weaker sex Is more general In Kngland than nnywhero else.

The rtocord-Herald tomorrow will say: In his mcfcengo to congress President Roosovelt will Incorporate certain radical recommendations regarding tho Interstate Commerce commission nnd will probnbly urgo the passage of remedial legislation which will pluro tho commission In a position to be n power for good In the traffic world.

Tho essential facts secured by the Investigation which closed today nre: That railroads east and west cut export rates con-stnntly and do not publish their export rates; that a condition eclats In tho Central Freight association which morally prove that thn roads cantbound from Chicago are pooling on grain and praln products; that the rut rates In exports ar duo largely to tho competition ot water routes which nro not under thn supervision of n commission; that tho bulk of grain for domostic uso moved ns export grain, thereby being granted a cut rate, that a substantial discrepancy exists between the rates on grain and flour and that hay Is a classification higher than kindred products.

TIGERS DIDN'T SCORE Nebraeka'e Goal Line Oat of Reioh ef Hinosri'a Kaihet. STRANGERS GET AN AWFUL TROUNCING 'Vanity Wallepi the Gneita to the Tine ef FiftyOae to Nethiai;. DRAIN EASILY THE STAR OF THE DAY Nebraska Qiartarback Makes Several Bialtj Pkenemenal Plaja. TOO ONESIDED TO BE Of INTEREST Mlasourlnii Outcliimcit In Ctriy lie-imrtmeiit h Hie .Veliruakn ienni, , M'lilch Pin; llluh-tiaos Knot llatl. .elirnka (tl. Missouri O. Itefore an nsremblago of o.OOO people th Cnrnhuskcrs of Nebraska defeated the Missouri Tigers by a score of SI lo 0 at th Young Men's Christian Association pari yesterday afternoon. Though confronted bj opponents who weighed exactly tho same per man. 170 pounds, the Nobrasknns by tholr fast playing and experience) wern enabled to outclass completely tho Mis-sourlans. Rnlph Drain, iiuarterbnck, was far and nway the star of the came. His work wat phenomenal. Twico ho made runs foi touchdowns ot more than fifty jards nil' many other long gains wero credited to him. Ho Is cnslly tho best dodger that ever played on the Nebraska team, as he proved by going through tho whole Held of opponents tlmn nud again yesterday. It Is not usual for quarterbacks to carry thi ball, but Coach Ilooth has developed n little delayed pass trick that enables Droln t( use his speed and quickness to advantage. He tnkes the ball from the center, a usual nnd pretends to pnss It to one of the bucks However, the back merely runs up snd touches thu pigskin as Drain holds It Ir. Ills hands nud thnt mnkrs It legal for the little quarter to run with It. Meanwhlu tho opponents nro waiting for the back am' Drain darts out around tho other nnd. Thli trick has been good for gains nil this ye:u nnd yesterday the qunrter mado oue run of sixty yards for a touchdown by means ot It. This was by all moans the most phenomenal and exulting play of tho tiny. Drain had dodged nnd eluded every opponent, save one, but that man, tho Mlssoui" fullback. Hall, seemed certain to capture him. Dralu skirted along on n slant for the goal lino nnd when Hall, who weighs 175 poiii.du, mado his dive, the little back caught him squarely In the fact: with his outstretched hand on the straight-Arm Interference nnd threw him yards nwny, speeding then on toward the goal. Hick Somo us Well. Rut two touchdowns were, not the extent of Drain's work. Nebraska ronton wero thrilled as they hnvo not liecn In years when ho dropped bark In the second halt ami kicked n goal Horn field on the twcnty-llvo yard line. This Is the fit hl time Nebraska has mniln a Held goal slncn when llonedlct did tho work. Thou on kicking goals fiom touchdown Drnln missed but two out of right. So summed up, his work represents a large sham of the whole gume, nnd In engineering the tram work hs quarterback h'j headwork wna perfect. On tho defense, too, Drain lived up to every word that Phil King, the Wisconsin conch, snld nbout him after seeing him play at Minneapolis. King Is known as the "Silent Man," but after wutchluc Drain' work In tackling the Gophers tlmn nftei time safely when ho was thn only ohMad between 200 pounds of beef and thn goal, ho opened up nnd snld to Coach Rootle "I havo never Keen nny quarterback In nny gnmn back up his team ns well ns that llttlo fellow did today." This is Drnln's Inst enr of piny. lie weighs only 115 pounds. Aul .Much I'nnt llnll. From stiirt to finish tho game was nni of "follow thn lender" us much iis foot bnll The strangers were bowled over like sc mnny tenpins, and wherever tho Nebraskant wished to go thorn scorned to be room foi thum to get tbert. Thn men from Mlssour' wero game, but hnlpless, and by thn tint' tho two long halven of thlrty-flvo mlnut'i woro ended they hud been "shown" to the heart's content of thn most rapacious scarlet and cream rooter of them nil. Absolutely no doubt ns to the result wm entertained from thn tme. when, only foul minute after tho southerners Imd kick' t tho ball off for tho first time, Loft Tackle Kingsbury of the Nebraska tenm rnrrled It over the line for thn first touchdown. From thn on tho scores camo thick nni fast. Twenty-two to nothing was tho tall j nt the nnd of thn first half, nnd spectutori hegan to think thnt P. would not go much higher, for In thn second hnlf Nehrask vould kick off to Missouri, giving tho Tlgeri tho ball. However, that made no difference, Ani! the Cornhuskers more than douhled theli score In tho last half, making twenty-nln! polntB more. It was Just as easy for them to takPytho ball away (rom their opponent on dowlis or to compel thn Mlssnurlans lo kick as It was to run It down the Held for another touchdown after they secured pen-session, Willi! (lie fill in r Mums, A resume of the. actual technicalities of tho game Illustrates how completely thu Tigers wero snowed under nnd also shows that tho tesult was absolutely on tho morlts ot tho game and thnt no tlukes assisted Nebraska to her phenomenal scoie. On tho other hand, the only sllpu that did occur aided Mhsourl rather than Nehiaskn. In the first place, Nebraska rnrrled 'hn pigskin altogether 516 ynrds, besides kicking It a great many more. In contrast io this Missouri advanced thn bnll but nineteen ynrds duiins the entire gamo by carr -log It and, nlso did some kicking. Marked as thnt comparison there 'i another still more annihilating. Only oiho did thn Tigers mako thn necessary dlitaii' n on three downs to retain tho ball, II vo yards. Nover once did Nebraskn fall to do so, Necr once woro the Cornhuskers com polled to relinquish the hull to tholr antagonists because nf Inability to adwinro It. So, although thero was much kicking done, especially toward tho' end of thn game, Nebraska wm never compelled in boot the ball nnd Missouri wns always forced to such tactics, Such .contrasts show how completely the Tigers wero outelamed, ynt drspltn all th' thn game was a fierce one and intensely Intel estlnc, for the boya from Mlisourl are tull of i rue sporting blood u:id fought
