Nebraska failed to complete five forward passes, compared with 'sevf-n failure* by Denver. The penalties exacted by the officials were even, each eleven losing thirty yards. Darden of Denver was ruled off the lield for tough play. How the Game Was .Played. Owen Frank kicked off against the wind and sent the oval spinning: fifty yards. Crowley returned the ball "twenty yards and the battle was on. A forward pass by Walker cost Denver a yard and a smash at the line__ netted no round. Denver was" - forced to punt and Walker booted the ball fifty yards. Jerry Warner caught the pigskin and pulled off an electrifying return of forty y-ircls. The Cornhuskers promptly uncorked an attack which the Denverites could not stay. Owen Frank reeled off five yards on a smash off tackle and Warner broke through the line for the same distance. Rathbone's center smash netted eight yards and Captain Temple, on a tackle-around play, plunged a-full sixteen yards before being downed. This smash put the ball on Denver's one-yard line and Rathbone was given the ball for the final charge. The Nebraska fullback fumbled, but in the scramble for the oval Left Guard Harmon clutched it safety and the Cornhuskers had scored their first touchdown-in four minutes of play. O. Frank kicked out and E. Frank heeled the catch m front of tho posts. O. Frank kicked the goal. ' Score: Nebraska, 6; Denver, 0. Hammili's kickoff went over tho Nebraska goal for a touchback, but the Cornhuskers declined to kick out and put the ball in play on the twen- "ty-five-yard line. Warner promptly ' broke through for seven yards on a jfake punt formation and E. Frank ' followed with a dash around end for "six yards. O. Frank tore off six yards and Rathbone -was good for eight A double pass went wrong and Nebraska lost a yard. The Cornhuskers were penalized fifteen yards at this juncture and O. Frank punted forty yards, Hammill making no return. Denver's first play was a two-yard line smash by Koonsman, but Walker's forward pass, on the succeeding play, was intercepted by O. Frank and" the Cornhuskers had regained the ball. A forward pass, O. Frank to Chauner, was fumbled by the latter, but Chauner regained possession and the play was good for a gain of eighteen yards. Two charges by Temple netted eight yards, when Nebraska was penalized fifteen yards. O. Frank negotiated an onside kick and Hammill fumbled, Lofgren clutching tho ball on Denver's three-yaid line. Rathbone bucked the line for two yards tind O. Frank went over on the next play for the touchdown. 0. Frank's kick hit tho goal posts and Chuuucr muffed and it was D. TJ.s ball on the thirty-five yard line. Crowley lost two yards and Walkers inability to make more than three forced namS'll to .punt.

Captain Temple pouncing on the oval in midfield and legaining possession for Nebraska. O. Frank was held for no gain and a lor- ward .pass was intercepted by Walker, who downed the ball on D. U.'s fifty- yard line. Denver then turned loose an attack which, for a time, had the Cornhuskers guessing. Walker hiked along for live yards, Hammill for eight, Crow"ley for seven and then again for another seven. Hammi'l was good for three yards, but Crowley was stopped on his next smash and only went a yard. A forward pass was called Into action, but Harmon intercepted and the Cornhuskers took the ball on their twenty-three yard line. Owen Frank faked a punt on the first down and sprinted twenty-two yards before brought down, right end for Large, of Denver. Warner broke around-vthe end for five yards, but O. Frank fumbled the next pass, recovering the ball. The balance of the play in the third quarter was virtually in midfield, neither eleven being able to make consistent gains. On the first play in the final quarter Hammill hit the line for a yard. Walker faked a kick and converted it into a center buck, but a half yard was all he could negotiate. A forward pass was intercepted by Nebraska, but a muff enabled Herbert to grab the ball. The play was called back on a penalty and the Denverites were set back fifteen yards. WalKer punted thirty five yards to Warner, w h o made a fair catch. Shonka Makes a Touchdown. "With the ball in their possession, the Cornhuskeis uncorked a steady march for the Denver goal.

CHICAGO, Oct. 22.---Nineteen thousand delirious enthusiasts, driven almost insane by a. ninth inning tie and a tenth inning victory, saw the Chicago Nationals "come back" today and capture the fourth game of the world's series from the Philadelphia Americans, 4 to 3. The combat was one to live in history. There was not a moment in it ^\hen a. properly interested partisan could draw a calm, full breath. It was anybody's game until the finish, when a double, an out and a single put the winning run across the plate. Up to Chicago's half of the ninth the score stood 3 to 2 in favor of the visitors. It looked as if the latter would perform the record-breaking feat of capturing four straight games in a world series and take the pennant home with them. A number of Philadelphia visitors went so far as to make sleeping car reservations for tonight from a special agent in the grandstand. As certain reserved events berths, -turned out Chicago to of Makes a Prompt Return. Hammffl's kickoff went forty-five yards to E. Frank, who lugged it back eighteen yards before being downed. Warner wriggled through tho lino for three yards and on the next play O Frank, faking a punt, sprinted fourteen yards around left end 1 efore being tackled by Crowley. Big Shonka and Captain Temple each annexed nine jards of distance, while Kath- bone bucked through for three, but the next two charges netted no gams and O. Frank executed an onside kick for twenty-five yards. Hammill once more fumbled and Harmon was equal to the occasion by grubbing the ball. This put the Cornhuskers on Denver's twenty-three yard line, when timti ·was called for the first auarter. When play was resumed, B. Frank charged ahead for four yards, but the next play was a fumble and Denver recovered the ball on the fourteen- yard line. Walker fell back to punt, but the pass was bad from center and Walker was dowi ad in his tracks. Walker then fell back behind -the goal line and punted thirty yards, Nebraska making no return. Shonka and Temple each tore off live yards, and Rathbone pierced the line for four ,yards. O. Frank was held without a gam, but Warner slipped through for throo completely. yards. O. Frank followed with a superb forward pass to Chauner, but the Cornhuskers' left end took the ball while standing across the goal line and the play went into the record as a touchback, instead of a touchdown. Denver brought the ball out to the twenty-five yard line and put it in play, rather than to kick. Crowley reeled off fifteen yards around L.of- gren on the first down and Walker followed with an eight-yard gain on a fake punt, which he converted into a center buck down the sideline. Crowley broke through for five yards and Koonsman bucked for two. A double pass netted Crowley six yards and he was good for eight yards on the next play. A fake end run, in which Walker charged the line, was blocked for no gain, after which Crowley sprinted to tho right on a wide end run. He cleared the end in fine style, but was laid low by Owen. Frank in the most thrilling tackle seen in years on Nebraska field. Crowley's dash netted" him only three yards. The Nebraska defense stiffened and Hammill fell back for a try at a drop kick for goal from the thirty-five yard- line. His kick went low and was blocked by a swarm of Cornhuskers, who tore through the Denver line like it were a sieve. In the scramble for the ball, a Denver man secured possession. Koonsman bucked for two yards, when they Denverites unfolded a spread -formation. The play was a forward pass, but it' netted Walker only two yards. The Koehlerites then tried another forward pass, but Owen Frank Intercepted and it was Nebraska's ball. Frank promptly punted booting the leather thirty-five yards. Denver made no return. Crowley lost five yards on Captain Temple's fine tackle. Denver faked another punt and Koonsman pierced the line for a two- yard gain. Walker next Assayed a forward pass, but the oval hit the ground and it was Nebraska's ball on the fifty-yard line. E. Frank and Temple tore off eight yards in two downs, when time was called for the end of the first half. Score: Nebraska, 11: Denver, 0. The Second Quarter. On resuming play, Hammill's kickoft went fifty yards, E. Frank lugging it back twenty yards. The Cornhuskers charged ahead fifteen yards in five smashes, when O. Frank punted forty yards, Hammill making no return. Crowley took tho hall on the first play and tore around left end for twenty- three yards. He threatened to break loose for a long sprint, but was tackled form the rear by Collins. Crowley came back with a seven-yard smash, but Koonsman lost a yard on the" next play. A forward pass fell short and it was Nebraska's ball on downs. · \ -Owen.-Frank then hurled a pass to Chauner for a twenty-yard gain, but the day. Hammill kicked off fif'ty- th e yards to Nebraska's goal and Minor lugged it back twenty. Faking a punt on the first down, 0. Frank uncovered a long pass to Chauner, who had gone into hiding near the sideline and had a clear field after nabbing the pass. Shonka and Minor sped down the field to form the interference and Walker was blocked off so effectually that Chauner sprinted across the Denver goal. This play netted the Cornhuskers ninety yards and their Fourth touchdown. Frank missed goal. Score: Nebraska; 21: Denver, 0. Chauner's long dash sapped D. TJ.'s store of ginger and in less than five fleeting' minutes the Cornhuskers had charged from midfield to tho Denver goal, Shonka tearing off the smash which yielded the fifth tauchdown O. Frank Kicked the goal and Nebraska's total had amounted to twenty-seven paints. Two minutes later and the final whistle tvas Bounded, the ball being in Denver's possession near the middle of the. field. . Cole Pleased With Showing. Coach Cole was pleased with the showing of the Cornhuskers, but he feels that there are still a good many ragged edges which must be fixed up before Nebraska will be in / proper shape for Kansas two weeks Ijence. "The boys play with vim", said the Nebraska coach, "yet the offensive was more ragged than it should be. The defensive was satisfactory. Denver had a bunch of shrewd tricks, but Tour boys managed to smother them Philadelphia, were not occupied -v\hen the train pulled out. Schulte Man of the Moment. Frank Schulte stepped to the plate in the last of the ninth. On his eye and arm largely depended the issue of whether the Americans would have the championship tonight or whether the Nationals might have to come from behind and win four straight after three defeats. There was a prayerful silence--then something happened. The debonrialre right fielder smote the sphere and it did not stop rolling till it bumped against the right field fence and the batsman had become a. potential base-runner on the second sack. Chief Bender merely smiled and the smile broadened to a grin when Hofman sacrificed Ihe runner to third. But the crowd was fairly crazy Crowley played tho whole game for Denver. We've got lots of work to do yet, though, before we will be Jn shape to meet Kansas." Coach Koehler, of the Denver squad, felt that his men had not played up to standard. He said: "We lost to a better team. But my men played rotten ball They put up a game lar inferior to that which they played against Marquette. Had Greene been at his regular place at center, we would have made a better showing. Our defense was poor, and the ball was fumbled too frequently. I do not think, however that Nebraska's team is as good as it was a year ago, but that is merely my own opinion." Nebraska, i'7. Denver, 0.

The roar of cheers was ear-splitting when Captain Chanco came to bat. The first ball pitched nipped him on the finger, but the umpire said he had walked into it.and It served him right, or words to that effect. The "peerless leader" hopped about, snapping the injured member for o. moment and then resumed hia position, glaring in the direction of the still grinning Bender. He stepped Into another one, but the result was different. With every muscle in his angry system tense he caught the ball on the seam and slammed it to the farthest corner of the lea for three bases. Tho gloom which had hung like a pall since Monday floated away and in the sky of the fanatics was hope and promise unbounded. Quakers Still Confident. The devoted band of Philadelphia "rooters" remained passive and confident. The habit ol being on the winning side had not deserted them. They acclaimed tho Indian hurler when Zimmerman and Steinfeldt wont out, leaving Chance, with what would have been the winning run, stranded on third. The game might have ended in this stanza, but for a sensational catch by Baker. Steinfeldt poked a foul into a left field box and although the occupants thereof -were far from helpiul the last fielding third baseman of the Philadelphia^ leaned leaned over among the seats and snared the ball. But that is only one of the many "ifs" in which the game abounded. The Philaclelphians came to bat in their half of the tenth with unabated confidence. Archer smothered a foul, however, and Baker, tho first man up, was disposed "of- Captain Davis rose to the occasion with a clean double to right, and the local crowd felt something in its tin oat. "Home Run" Murphy was up, but his best was a sharp grounder which Tinker fumbled for one breathless moment and threw Davis out at third. Barry- ended the rally by striking out. There were two out when the winning run came m. Tinker "popped" out, but Archer interpolated a double, which was followed by Brown's out at first.

Puts Cole in for the Final. Chance answered the call of the west side constituency by sending "Kmc" Cole into the pitching 'box. Archei was nainei to catch because Kling's battins average of .OS for tho series, it was thought, could not be lowered by Archer or anybody else.

The runner attempted to stretch the hit into a triple and was thrown out at third. Sheckard to Steinfeldt. One run. CUBS--Archer fanned.

Bender had given two bases on balls and struck out two men and Cole had issued one pass and fanned one man. Both teams were playing real baseball and the exhibition was In striking contrast to Thursday's free for all scramble. Fourth I n n i n g . ATHLETICS--Up to this time the game was easily the best of the series. Lord stepped up and fanned. Collins' speed enabled him to beat out an m- lleld hit to Zimmerman by the bat of an eye.

Baker hit to left center and reached third on the play with Collins crossing the plate, but the umpire under the ground rules called it a two-bagger and sent Collins back to third and Baker to second. Davis fanned, the captain reaching for the third one, which went out a yard outside the plate.

Barry fanned. Two runs. CUBS--Schulte started the Cubs' half and singled to left Hoffman drove a safe one to right, putting Schulte on third.

STORIES OF OLD NEW YORK Bit of American History Recalled in Court Decision. NEW YORK, Oct. 22.-- A bit of old American history was recalled in the ·nemorable decision which Justice ilackmar in the supreme court of Suffolk county, handed down the oth- 2r day, confirming the purchase of ndian field, at Montauk Point, L. I., ay Arthur W. Benson from the Tndi- ins in 1879 and settling- a dispute be- ween the Indians and Mr. Benson and ais heirs and executors which has asted nearly twenty years. The Mon- .auk Indians had lived on the land "or nearly 250 years, but their once powerful tribe had dwindled to a few 'amilies, when Mr. Benson bought the and from them. At the time of the surchase the land \vas not worth T.uch, but it became very valuable ivhen the Long- Island railroad was sxtended to Montauk Point. When the Indians found that their former property had become valuable, they tried to abrogate the sale and regain possession of the land by legal pro- ;ess, claiming tribal rights to the ground. They were ruled out of court, lowever, as they no longer had any tribal organization and therefore no standing in court In 1906 the legis- ature was induced to pass an act per- nitting the few surviving Montaucl? Indians to reorganize as a tribe, so as :o be able to sue as a tribe. But even :his did not avail them much, as the court decided that there 'is no longer a. tribe of Montauk Indians and the sale of their land to Benson, and his heirs must be recognized as a^ legal and lawful act. A mean trick was played upon a policeman in Brooklyn the other day, which shows either one of two things, the extent to which a man's meanness may go under certain favorable conditions, or the peculiar ideas some persons have as to what constitutes a good joke. The victim of the trick or joke, a faithful policeman, was sent to Coney Island during the anti-vica campaign this summer, to /collect evidence against the dives existing in Conev and against the lawless elements infesting that famous resort. He was instructed to visit disreputable dens and grog shops, to associate with lewd women and criminals of all kinds and to make a record of the conditions he found. He did his work well, according- to instructions, and after his task was completed he turned in an expense account, specific in every detail. Through the stupidity or meanness of one of his superior officers this telltale expense account fell into the hands of the policeman's wife. The result may easily be imagined. Upon the complaint of the aggrieved policeman an investigation has been ordered to find and properjy punish tha fiend who caused the trouble. _ The squirrels in Central Park, the delight of the children and even ot grown persons who found pleasure in watching- the graceful antics of these tame little animals, are becoming extinct- In former years the squirrels multiplied so rapidly that it became necessary from time to time to cap- Central park. Many of the automobil-^ ists find a peculiar pleasure in rannmg over the little animals, who never show fear of horses or automobiles and every day scores of the squirrels are killed in this brutal way. An appeal has been made by the park authorities to put an end to this cruel and brutal sport of the auto fiends, who seem to consider this "sport" as practice for the killing of human beings. George Wright, "the literary burglar of Westchester," a man of many aliases and. for many, .years known to the police as one of the most -daring housebreakers in this part of the country, has been sentenced to twenty-ona years in Smg Sing. It was one of his peculiarities to leave behind him in every house or apartment Jie. had "robbed, some written token cT iiis visit. Some of his notes were humorous, others merely impudent. In most cases Wright left polite notes, thanking the owners for the plunder he had _ taken and promising to return tor " more. TO SEEK HUSBAND IX A\»ES. BOSTON, Mass., Oct. 22 --Mrs. Harriet C.
