PIGGY CAWE TO TOWN. BAKERITES CAN PUNT Football is Reinstated in Methodist College.—Was Barred Years Ago. Exer>- ex-Baker student in Allen county read with interest the dispatch in the Kansas City paper.s this morning to the effort that football had been reinstated in tho Knlversity. The . students have \x-cn working Industriously all year to pet fontbaU airain. The game was barred from the school years ago, following a trial and ex- pal8io.n from the church of three members who wrote articles for the press ag^nst the game. Bishop Qaayle, the president of the linlver- slty, took exception to the articles and brought the thrre members before the church to prove their charges. After the trial which created interest all over the state the three men were "churched." However, the fight against th game continued and it was shortly afterward barred from the school. A di.spatch says: Lawrence, Kas.. Dec. 16.—The trustees of Baker university voted last night to recommend that football be reinstated. The fight for reinstatement was led by J. L. Brlstow and the vote was seventeen to three in favor of reinstating the game. For the last ten years Baker university has not played football. Giddy Shoat Takes In the Dazzling Sights of Chanute. The Chanute Tribune says: John Hill, who lives near the brick plant, three miles west of the city, came to town this morning to get a shoat that ran away.from home to see Chanute by gas light. Piggy weighs about 100 pounds and has always been well behaved heretofore. Yesterday, however, he must have been feeling his oats, for aleng In the evening when a heajrlly loaded wagon came by his home place he followed It and came to tonw with. It. He had always been so proper heretofore that he had been allowed his freedom of the place and left to run where.he chos. \\Tiether he asked the horses. In pig Latin, where they were going, or had Just made up his mind to take the trail, no matter where It led, no one knows. At any rate, along he came, following the team and wagon, as a coach dog follows a classy turnout When he arrived In town he seemed perfectly satisfied. He twisted his tail Into several additional kinks, pointed the tip of it toward the stars, which were beginning to show themselves by the time he arrived, and off he started at a trot. In spite of his long tramp, to indulge In riot and revelry under the cover of darkness. His owner took him home this morning, a sadder and a wiser piggy. He didn't trot along at liberty, but was tied down In a wagon which Jolted him over the road, and it Is to bf» presumed that he was real glad when he pot safe back home agnin.
