Currier started the game as the other defense man, and did well, although he is still rather awkward In handling himself. Tyler was the star of the game. The way he carried the puck through the whole Tech team was a revelation, oven to those who had seen him play earlier this year at Hanover. Holmes looks like a fixture at right wing; but Smith, a new man on the team this year, will have to come fast to hold bis position against Bevcroft and Cousens, two Arlington boys. As was to be expected, the Green showed little team work in the Tech game last Tuesday night, it being the first time th4 they have played together. In spots, however, there was good passing. No announcements are yet forthcoming relative to the make-up of tlfts 1916 football schedule: Graduate Manager Horace G. Pender is still hard at work in signing up games and spent laat week In New York in conferences with Western representatives. The only fixture on the schedule made known to date is the Pennsylvania game, which will be played at Philadelphia Nov 18. Bates lias been dropped from the schedule this vear, and several other shakeups in last year's list will probably be noted when the new schedule is announced.

By T. H. MLRSAHE. George Duffy Lewis, the hero of the last post-series for the baseball championship of the world, is a native son of California, and at the close of the season was soon on his way to his parents' home on the Pacific Coast. On my arrival at San Francisco, Oct S, I learned that Duffy Lewis was a heudliner -at a theatre in Oakland, having made a good impression Hie week before at one of the show houses of San Francisco. With the keen interest that Mr Lewis would naturally be taking in his new ! field, 7 felt that I would have consider- j able trouble In getting an audience yvith j the new footlight favorite. Imagine my agreeable surprise the iet morning, while taking breakfast, to hear my I topic of conversation on the way back. "There is the house." enthusiastically cried Mr fSeyvis as he frot a glimpse of the 'new- white building through the trees, and in a few moments we halted in front of the Duffy Lewis new bungalow, by all odds the beauty place of the town, both Inside and out. Inspecting the New House. It was the first time that Duffy had return from my theatrical engagejoenls the middle of January, and with good roads I can drive to San Francisco in a couple of hours, do my business an 1 return the same day." Unlike most bfttl players. Duffy Lewis cares nothing for hunting or fishing. Hugh Chalmers, a great baseball f;,n from Detroit, has persuaded the Boston player that he should have a new car, and the garage on the Lewis property is now awaitinir the arrival of the new seen the place finished and furnished, ; automobile. Both Mr and Mrs Lewis and I was only too pleased to follow the have taken lessons In running an auto- ii. unite anu are anxious to try out me enthusiastic IeWis family into every corner of their iMeal home. The hous-a was up-to-date in every way, arranged under the direction of Mrs Lewis, who had the rugs sent from Boston and the other fixtures from .San Francisco. "Pretty nice, eh?" was the comment thai lewis constantly made as we went through the house.

There is an inclosed ball ground at Boyes Springs and several Pacific Coast League teams do their Spring training at this place. Last year Lewis remained there for two weeks before going to the Arkansas training grounds, and was In the pink of condition when he arrived, it was the result of his visit to the Springs last Winter that caused Lewis to choose Boyes Hot Springs for bungalow life. CLIFF DWELLING BEANS. Kansas Man Raises Crop From Seed Hundreds of Years Old. R. L. Munson of Wetmore, Kan, has Just finished harvesting a small bean crop from seed supposed to be hundreds of years old. Last Si ring Clarence Sullivan of Flagstaff, Ari, sent his brother, J. R. Sullivan, several beans which were found in a leather bag .ored away in one of the caves of the cliff dwellers. Sullivan gave two of the beans to Munson. who planted them as an experiment. One of the seeds germinated and bore three large pods of extra large beans. Hardly Satisfactory. Agent to actor) Then we'll consider that settled. A( tor But er What about the contract?

After returning to California this Fall, Lewis found himsell very popular once more with old friends. The BOStqn star was appealed to for small loans, and evidently not in vain, for 1 heard him ask Mrs Lewis to give him ikc-heck for 300. He had promised a yoyng man a loan f that amount for a few weeks' and would receive $50 for the favor. "Yts, but what security will you get for life trcney?" asked Mrs Lewis. "I don't need security. 1 know the young fellow Is food, and jvill pay up on time," pleaded Mr Lewis. "I am not in the banking business and refuse to consider loans without substantial securities," was , the filial answer. After making an appointment to meet at Sausalito Ferry the next Sunday morning at ?:lfi, the Boston Red Sox star was held up a dozen times by admirers as he passed through the corrl-dool the hotel to take a taxi for Oakland, where he Was booked to show that at'tarnAm. i fmmd th.-U. Duffy Lewis was a uni versal favorite in California, where he was brought out as a Dan pia er aim later was induced to come to Boston by john I. Taylor. He was on time early Sunday morning lor a .'.0-minute sail across San Fran-Cisco Bav. Passing in view of the buildings of the Panama Exposition, the Golden Gatto and many interesting islands, occupied by Government institutions, tbey were most interestingly described to me by one who had lived nearly all of his life on the shores of this one of the most beautiful bays in the world. , The Valley of the Moon. I found the boat crowded with hunters and their dogs, bound for the low marshy land a third of the way to Boyes Hot Springs. Game was plenty, as I realized when on the train returning the same evening, where the tired-looking hunters were. loaded down with wildduoks and other game birds. The ride to the new mime of Mr Lew's is anvthing but impressive for two-thirds ot the distance; after that it grows picturesque, with beautiful mouhtain ranges protecting a vallsy celebrated for its numerous hot springs, and well named by Jack Lon-doti "The Valley of he Moon." This writer is living at his bungalow a few miles up the valley from the home of Duffy Eewts. After a two-hour ride we reached our destination and found Mrs Lewis at the . . i .-..a on-aDinir rtur arrival with n twO-hrse team. After allowing my j several building lots at a fine profit; or. special photographer from San Francisco to take a snapshot, we were soon on our way to Sonoma, two miles away. to attend mass. Handing Over the Cash. To show his appreciation of his financial secretary, Duff' Lewis hands over his week's salary of $500 while sitting un the arm of a comfortable chair. The artist caught the happy pair after counting the money, Mrs Lewis forcing a smile from the ball player by remark ing, "1 certainly love my Dufry, and the nice large bills hel has handed over, like a good dear boy." The artist wanted one picture of the Lewis family and myself, taken' in one corner of the extremely pleasant living room, with Mrs Lewis a rose between two thorns, as it were. i After passing an hour admiring tne but.galow from the inside as well as out, we went for a chicken dinner to th one hotel in the place still open. In the Summer season there are several good-sized hotels open In the valley. Col Martin Brady, a veteran sportsman, knownNn his day from Boston to San Francisco, settled down here seven years ago and is the manager of a clubhouse. It was mostly through his influence that Lewis came to Boyes Springs, Capt Brady was a warm admirer of the ball player, before he went to the Boston club. The captain tried the Hot Springs and was delighted to find the waters a cure for a bad case of rheumatism, so he has fixed on Boyes Springs for a perms nent home and is now delighted to know that he will have his young friend Lewis for a neighbor. Capt Brady is forced to go about on crutches, and seeing Duffy Lewis coming to make a call managed to meet him at the door The greeting was surely on the level. "Welcome home, old man." "Thanks, captain, you are looking fine:" Then the two leading citizens of Boyes Hot Springs, Calif, held hands and smiled while their pictures were being taken. , roads to Frisco. Pays Better Thah Baseball. Duffy Lewis figures his earnings for the season at close to $15,000; added to his regular salary of $5500, he received nearly $4000 from the post series rake-eff, and will receive $5500 for his work on the stage this Winter. "1 want two or three more years in the big league," said Lewis, "when I hope to settle down In some sort of business in" San Francisco, for I want none of the life of a rancher. The State road will soon pass by my house, and with a fine auto I can reach the White Way at Frisco without much trouble." Lewis also figures that Boyes Hot Springs will some day see more business, and he will be on hand to take advantage of any opening. With the pretty little home and a Japanese servant, Duffy Lewis can already eee a bank roll big enough to pay the bills for several years to come. As the sun went down behind the Western mountains early in the afternoon a long shadow came creeping across the vallev, while to the east the verdant mountain range was lit up like a line of Christmas trees. Duffv Lewis was actually romantic under "the influence cf the scenery. He drew mv attention to the picture as wo rode about town behind a pair of lively horses with Mrs Lewis handling the .ribbons. . . One of the Lewis neighbors was the well-known actor, Lander Stevens-something of a baseball fan. He told how the people at Boyes Springs received the news from the Dost senes, inning by inning, and the grand Jubilee after "each Boston victory and alter learning of the work that Duffy Lewis did in the series. How doubly proud they were of their fellow-citizen. Hero in His Home Town. It was plain to see that Duffy Lewis was considered only as a big league player at his home town, until this Fall, when he proved to be the real hero of the biggest show on earth and one of the really modest young men connected with the game. m He has not been affected by the leap to general favor. 1 heard Lewis mention baseball but once during my visit, when he said, "I see that Hie boss (meaning Pres Joe J. Lannin) wants to sell out." Mrs Lewis adding. "Mr Lannin must have Jjeen well pleased with the work of the boys this season. Then the subject drifted to the easy money that Duffy was receiving for a turn on the stae, where he tells how the Bed Sox planned for the post series, with people asking familiar iiuestions from the audience. I Lewis gives prompt answers tnat are astonishing. The exact number of pea pie at each game, the batting averages of the players, etc, with Duffy Lewis leading; having a good word for all the players of both teams that took part in the series. - ' He refers to the big series of 1912, when he was a member of the Red Sox. Lewis made a point of the fact that the long circuit that Air Lewis had been booked for. 'J here were several - neighbors at the depot, who expressed their desire to see Duffy soot) back home again, and there was no one in the party any more anxious to get back to that beautiful bungalow than Duffy himself. For when on the train he remarked: "I hato to have to go away from home, but I. can't turn down $500 a week. Think of it. I will receive as much for my 10 weeks on the stage as I received from my saven months' work last season, barring the money I picked up in the Post Series." I asked Duffy which he preferred, I lning ball or appearing as a head-liner in the variety show. He remarked, "While I love to play ball, the big money for very little work is a great attraction, but I wouldn't be getting this outside money hut for the fact that I was lucky enough to be connected with me ball team that won the Champion-ship of the World, and this may never happen to me during my lifetime. "I have enjoyed my baseball career very much, as most of it has been as a member of the Boston Red Sox, with a team in the race every year: and when I get so I can't play major league ball I intend, to retire frdSi the game altogether."

" F. Butler of Lowell. As we stepped off the ferrv at San Brancisco there were waiting the father and mother of Mr Lewis, who were anxious to see him before he left early that evening for L.os Angeles. I had met the elder Lewis on mv trip to California with i he Red Pox in l&jL and was ar, ably surprised to have Mrs Lewk say that she was very ulad to see me as she hAd heard Duffy say so many nice thirfgs about me. Aft.' a pleasant chat of a few mo-mertts Duffy went off with his parents, while I accepted the invitation of one pf Lewis's old college chums to ride to ray hotel in his automobile. I spent a most interesting day in a velley where the majestic eucalyptus trees along the roadsides waved their plumes as If trying to allure the Stranger from the East into the land of sunshine and flowers; yet I was more than, ever in love with the Eat, and that night was quite bus; packing up mv effects for a very early start the next morning. Ideal in Work and Play. Later in the week I met Duffy Lewis at Los Angeles, where he was playing as heaollner at one of the leading theatres, as well as writing a daily baseball screed for a local paper. He was to appear the next week at San Diego, from where he was booked for Salt Lake City, Seattle, Portland and other cities in that region of the Northwest.

As a matter ot fact the Prince had landed in France when this notice waa published and was on his way to taifce up his duties at general headquarters, so that he now has been on active service for a year, relieved only by some few "leaves," on one of which he brought home the, Commander-in-Chief's dispatches. The Prince was gazetted a second lieutenant in the 1st Battalion of the Grenadier Guards, the senior Infantry unit in the Empire, on Aug 12, a week after the war began. ' He entered on his duties with the utmost zest and enthusiasm. The Prince's work with the Otlicers' Training Corps at Oxford helped him quickly to btcom. an efficient subaltern, and it was a bitter disappointment to him that ."when his battalion went to France he was not allowed to accompany it.
