President Jordan of Leland - Stanford Gives Hie Opinion ol the Ooaoh. - The following taken "from the Palo Alto News will be ol interest to tne many friends of F.H.Yost, who coached the Kansas university football team last year, aad will go to Lelaad Stanford university this fall for similar work: The first Stanford man to tell as defi nitely of our new coach ia Dr. Jordon Dozing his recant eastern trip, aad while stopping a few days at ' the university of West Virginia. Dr. Tordon met Yost, and they had a talk together and they discussed the whole situation of 1900 at Stanford university. In a recent interview on that meeting at Maryontown, Dr. Jordon : very kindly save his impression ot our aew coach. He says Yost has a bearing and manner very much like Chamberlain; in fact resembles him in many waya. He has the same cordial spirit, the same handshake to be remembered long afterwards, and the same general air of simplicity. Yost is a southern type ot man, which fact he be trays ia his vocabulary and manner. The thiag about Yost that im pressed Dr. Jordan exceedingly was . his power to get immediately at tne neart or a subject, especially so as to the football situation. The president said that he had seldom it ever seen a man as a coach of a football team in the west more thor oughly alive to his business, more confi dent of his own power . and ability, one who makes a more lasting impression of sincerity and straightforwardness. Yet we have nothing to expect of the society man of superficial polish or veneer in our new coach. He is a man wno wins yon by his warm southern nature and manner. In speaking ot tne choice 01 Yost oter men of the "Big Four" Dr. Jordan said in substance that he was surprised when he learned that a man from a second ary college had beea chosen for coach of our team, but when he 1 . J . .... a the man and taikea witn mm be was con vinced that no mistake had been made. For he is a man with a good eye, a power tui pnysique, one wno uas conndence in himself and one whose past work justifies future hopes. LAWBBNO&VKAN8AS UNIVERSITY.

The University club ought to win the game as it has had the advantage of a number of matched games, but there is room for doubt of their success as the Lawrence club - - is a strong aggregation of players, and will put np a hard game. They are strong in team work, fair all around batters, will outmatch the Univer sity club at outfielding and have by far the advantage in pitcher aad catcher.

HE BOUGHT THE BRICK. A Confidence Game That DUaearrleeT aad the Iateaded Vletlaa Came Oat Ahead. Jeremiah Harding lives on the West side with several hundred thou sand other people, doesn't pretend to be smart, is law-abiding, but - has never been indicted for it, and yet he practically sold confidence man his own gold brick, saye the Chicago Times-Herald. The leading axiom in the gold brick business is: "Never buy; alwaya sell gold bricks. ' Jerry doesn't need any pointers in transactions where money is one of the active ingredients, for he came by them naturally, but the confidence man didn't know it. In some way the latter learned the dimensions of Mr. Harding's deposit at the bank, and after careful calculations with a range-finder thought the transfer to his own depleted hoard as good as made. Because of his failure to take Jere miah into his confidence, however, thia bricklayer slipped an eccentric, lost the cherished brick which had so often laid long-green eggs, plunged his family into grief and woe, had to move at night into a cheaper flat. forfeited hie social and business stand ing, and waa relegated to the "suck er" class.' When a buBine&s-like, although clerical-looking, middle-aged man, neatly dressed, called upon Jerry at his grocery one day recently solicit ing money for -the Society for the Propagation of Mendacious Peripatetic, Jerry warmed to him at once, promised to think it over, had him stay to the noon dinner, and trotted out the hard cider. Now, Jerry rather smelled a rat, al though his conscience hurt him for mistrusting the eloquent missionary. but It recovered from the attack when the visitor, after handing out lots of information about Cape Nome, where arctic oceans come from, said his brother had sent him several thousand dollars worth of gold dust, which he had transformed into a per-allelopiped, but, needing cash, de-aired Jeremiah, as a business man, to advise him. - "Sell the thing to a circus," aaid Jerry. - The stranger threw a pitying smile upon hie host, and then ex plained that the gold had been cast' into a brick-shaped mass, adding "There's $7,600 worth of gold in it. but I'll take $3,200 ready money, just the magnitude of Jerry's bank deposit. . It was a strange coinci dence. .. Jeremiah aaked to, see the brick, but it was down-town; he would nof care to endanger Ita safety by lug ging it around, nor would he aak Jerry to buy. Perhaps some bank was in need of It. "I can have it tested, I suppose?" inquired the groceryman. "Certainly," responded the mission ary; "well go to the government assay office and it will be tried by the a Mayer m your presence." F , . So Jeremiah agreed to meet tbe missionary ; at the bank Thursday morning, and both were on time, the atranger with a brick in his satchel large enough to- accommodate a hod-16aL Jerry caught on to thia at once. said nothing, drew $5,200 in ten $500 and two $100 bills, stuffed them carelessly into his pocket, took a chew of black tobacco, and then left the bank with the misionary. "1'm sorry, but the government as say er is out of town; shall we wait till he. gets back?" remarked - the missionary, apologetically. No, it made no difference to Jerry; any asaayer hia friend recommended would do, at which reply the missionary could have killed Jerry for not having $100,000 with him, and looked upon the groceryman aa a swindler for possessing but a paltry $5,200. The brick' was tested at a Jeweler's, and being pronounced pure la heart and) of good financial standing, Jerry, putting it In hie pocket, accompanied the missionary to a Tan Cures street hotel to complete tha traaason.

The missionary stood aside to let Jerry . enter first, but the latter pushed thr ; other ahead, and into the apartment, and merely crossing the threshold, with the open door at his back, the groceryman drew his money from his ' pocket and thrust the roll into the crook's hand. : "NlVshouted the confidence man 1 quite unclerically. "Come here, Jim." j The missionary, dropping the satch-, el, was about to reach for a revolver, when he found a glistening barrel shoved under his nose. He could see all the constellations through It, for it was apparently the size of the Yer-kes telescope. The hand of the man behind the gun didn't tremble a bit. .

Geed-lioolclnar Professors Of tea Im . reaw the Fair ' Co-ed's Faaey aad Have Larare Ctaaaee. The secrete of the fair co-eds' choice' of studies was laidTbare at a meeting of the Chicago Collegiate Alumnae association when Miss Marion Talbot, dean of women at the University of Chicago, read a paper on "Choice of Studies by Men and Women Undergraduates." Among the considerations which eater when the timid undergraduates are selecting studies from the curriculuma of coeducational institutions is the "strong personality" of the professor. Personally attractive members of the faculty find full classes, and it ia always to be feared, sadly enough, that some of the cla&swomen dwell less upon his dissertations upon literature, aciemoe or political economy than tJiey note with admiring eye the athletic figure and manly beauty with which many In-, structors are endowed. Miss Talbot, while deploring this, does not find it to be the rule. Laziness, she stated, is another consideration, andi accounts for the full classes which take up the "snap studies." 3 ' Love of science or of other special ties, however, induces many . young I women to enter on these" branches, j while others undertake them with a ' view to gaining a livelihood. : Miss Talbot presented a list of statistics showing the choice of studies of both men and women undergraduates in Chicago, Harvard and Wellesley. Summarizing, Mise Talbot declared that the college should be the place for general training, and not for technical or professional training, and she deprecated the tendency of educational institutions to furnish students a "short cut" to a training to earn a livelihood. In this tendency Mise Talbot sees the danger of a lapae of true refinement and of scholarly attainments, and that in the struggle for material success the original imten of college training, that of extending culture, will be lost. .

A Barbery wild goat escaped from the Central, park menagerie, charged Into a near-by brewery, and sent the keg-handlers and drivers flying. An angry bull charged and routed a party of Uncle Barn's engineers near Fort S locum, Willette Point. When the wild goat appeared, rampant, in the doorway pf the brewery a stout driver remarked with some surprise! "Ach, himmeL here is a book bear sign that walks, nicht?
