Read and Learn How You May Pro-. cure it. The question of why one man succeeds and another fails, is a problem that has puzzled philosophers for centuries. One man attains riches and position, while his neighbor who started with seemingly the same, and better opportunities, exists in poverty and obscurity. No man can win success who is suffering from an irritating and nerve-racking disease and the man who has the qualities of success within him, would be quick to recognize this fact and seize the best remedy to eradicate the trouble. . A person afflicted with a serious case of hemorrhoids or piles is handicapped in the race for power and advancement. It is impossible to concentrate the mental energies when this dreadful trouble is sapping the vital forces. To show how easily this success destroying trouble can be overcome, we publish the following letter from a prominent Indiana man: "When I received the former letter and booklet on 'Piles Their Nature, Cause and Cure, I was in a critical condition. . Ulcers to the number of seven had formed on the inside of the rectum culminating in a large tumor on the outside resembling fistula. I suffered the most excruciating pain, could get no rest day or night. After reading the booklet I sent to my druggist, but he happened to be out of Pyramid Pile Cure just at that time. However, I obtained a part of a box from my brother-in-law and began their use. Five Pyramids completely cured me. I procured a box later, but have had no occasion to use them. I have been waiting to see that the cure was permanent before writing you of its success. I believe Pyramid Pile Cure to be the greatest and best pile cure on the market, and ask you to please accept of my grateful thanks for this invaluable remedr. I take great pleasure in recommending its use to any sufferer along this line. Yon may use my name if you wish for reference to anyone afflicted with this disease." J. O. LittelL Arthur, Ind. You can obtain a free sample of this wonderful remedy, also the booklet described above, by writing your name and address plainly on a postal card and mailing it to the Pyramid Drug Co., Marshall, Mich.

' Trick on Harvard and the Latter Won by the Closest of Margins Princeton Smothered Cornell 44 to oVanderbilt's Victory, . . - New York, Oct. 31. With the score 0 to O at the end of the first half Columbia's eleven was crushed beneath the irresistible attack of Yale at the Polo Grounds this afternoon and was de-, f eated by a score of 25 to 0. Endurance 1 was the quality that won for Yale. Her men from start to finish showed no let up in the magnificent attack that sent Columbia a badly beaten team from the field. In the first half Columbia held Yale to no score. That effort taxed all her power and .when the second half opened she was already beaten for lack of strength. Time after time the Columbia players were unable to rise after a play and very often they were laid out with injuries. In the second half soon after it began Yale punted to Columbia's 3-yard line, where Metzenthin caught the ball and with Shevlin and Rafferty on top of him was dragged behind Columbia's goal line for a safety. By steady line bucking Mitchell was forced .over the line and he kicked his own goal.- Shortly after Mitchell dropped a goal from the field at i the 40-yard hue, Columbia s line commenced to crumble and Kinney scored the second touchdown from which a goal i was kicked. Shevlin caught the kick-off at Yale's 15-yard line and ran the length of the field for the final tally. Mitchell kicked the final goal. Columbia. Positions. Bishop left end . . Brown left tackle..

Cambridge, Mass., Oct. 31. In an intensely exciting and decidedly sensational football game Harvard defeated the Carlisle Indians today 12 to 11. The closeness of the score was made possible by one of the most unique tricks tried ou a football field for many years. Dillon at the start of the second half received the Harvard kickoff on his 5-yard line and then hiding the ball under his Jersey behind his back ran the length of the field empty-handed for a touchdown. There is apparently no rule covering this trick so the play stood and the score was 11 to 0 in favor of the Indians as they had already scored a goal from the field in the first half. Harvard then took, a brace and pushed the ball down the field for a touchdown. The second Harvard score came a few minutes later and was also made by straight football. Marshall kicked both goals. Carlisle made desperate but unavailing efforts for another score in the darkness. The run of Dillon was the feature of the game and will undoubtedly give rise to a vast deal of discussion. The instant Ihrf' 1 ZJL I . M M M M he caught' the ball the entire Carlisle team clustered about him so that no one could see what was being done. The Harvard team threw themselves on the massed Indians just as the latter had begun to move down the field well bunched. While the Crimson playe.-a were searching for the ball Dillon came out of the crowd entirely empty-handed and had gone thirty or forty yards before any one realized that he had the ball. -o END RUNS FOR GAINS Were Successfully Worked by Princeton Which Beat Cornell 44 to 0. Princeton; N. J., Oct. 31. Princeton defeated Cornell today 44 to 0. Princeton gained at will through the center of the line and seldom failed to work end runs for substantial gains.. Cornell was helpless when she had the ball and succeeded in retaining it until the second down only During the entire game. Cornell gained her first down but five times while Princeton was held for downs twice. Princeton kicked off and when the ball was returned rushed it back by steady gains until DeVVitt failed on a drop kick from the 2o-yard line. Uornell punted out of danger. By sending Foulke arouud the end and Miller through center Princeton reached the 4-yard line and Kafer scored. Cornell's line weakened and a second score followed and runs by Kater and center plunges by Oooney and Miller. On the next kickoff, Rice started left end for forty-five yards and reached the 30-yard line. DeWitt made futile efforts to kick a goal but after Burke's long run of forty-two yards he succeeded in making a field goal from the 27-yard line. The first half ended 17 to 0. In the second half the task was still easier for Princeton. Kafer and Cooney scored in succession and DeWitt dropped a kick from the 27-yard line. Foulk made still another touchdown. The game ended, with the ball in Cornell's possession in the middle of the field. o Penn Defeats Bucknell. Philadelphia, Oct. 31. University of Pennsylvania defeated Bucknell 47 to 6 today.

The University of Tennessee clearly outclassed the University of 'Nashville on Peabody field today and won by a score of 10 to 0. Although interrupted by fierce slugging on both sides the game was highly interesting from a spectators standpoint. Biddle, the star fullback of the local team was put on the side line early in the contest for rough work. - The Tennessee team showed remarkable improvement over their previous visit to this city and Coach Fisher was very much impressed with their work. He was of the opinion that this was the best game they have played this year. Defensively and offensively they excelled the Nashville team.- Their line was like a stone-wall. At no time during the contest was Tennessee's goal in danger. Gudger and Beane for Tennessee did star work, never failing to make good gains alrhougH the entire team played well. Nashville was lamentably . weak in every department and the result was a bitter disappointment to the followers of maroon and blue The line-up was as follows: NashviWe Positions Tennessee Gulley ........left end..

MARYVILLE COLLEGE 68, SWEETWATER COLLEGE 0. A Terrible Slaughter on the Grounds of the Defeated Team. Mary ville college football team defeated the Sweetwater Military college team Saturday morning by a score of 68 to 0. The game was played on the Sweetwater grounds and although the score shows a onesided game yet it was full of remarkable playing. French for Maryville, at kickoff from the center of the field, kicked the ball across the Military college goal line six times during the game and Sweetwater showed its knowledge of tha game by falling on the ball. Only once aid Maryville fail to make the required distance while the Sweetwater military college team made their ground oniy twice. ' Time of halves 25 and 20 minutes. Score by halves 41 and 27.

C. football team of this city went to Jefferson City Saturday afternoon to play a game With the Carson-Newman College team. , The contest was played on the college grounds beginning at 4:15 o'clock and was witnessed by an enthusiastic crowd. The game ended in a score of- 11 to 0 in favor of Carson-Newman. The defeated team is newly organized and inexperienced, while the Carson-Newman College team has played a number of" games this season. An interesting feature was that the second half was played by moonlight. One touchdown was made in each half by the victors. - The jJarson-Newrnan line was too strong for the Y. M. C. A. boys, and their bucking was fierce. The interference of both teams. was good and superior practice- won. For Carson-Newman Duncan, Evans, Lawrence, Little Jeffries and Bales deserve the greatest credit. Lawrence and Evans made the touchdowns and Lawrence kicked one goal. Little Jeffries, Bales and Lawrence made several long end runs, while Duncan and Evans made fine gains through the line. Mitchell is making good at center and Little Jeffries is making a steady man at quarterback. Several new men will play in Carson-Newman's line in its next games. Tennessee Normal plays at Jefferson City Monday and Maryville will be played Saturday.. The team is improving in team work every day. The line-up of the teams was as follows: , Y. M. C. A. Positions.
