One of the best compliment? ever paid to James Whitcomb Riley is the following from the pen of William Ican 11 w- clls, editor of Harper's Montlilv : "The fact is, our Horsier Poet has fonnd lodgment in people's love, which is a nuK-h safer place for any poet ilian their admiration.

Saturday would have been a perfect day for football had it not been for the high wind which blew from the south. The crowd present was larger than that at the Illinois game, and it witnessed the best natured and fastest game ever played in Nebraska. There were many carriages drawn up along the field and their fair occupants seemingly enjoyed the game very much. The Kansas team had many adherents among the crowd and the ,;Bock Chalk" was sometimes almost as strong as the university yell. The teams lined up at 3 -.15 in this order : Nebraska. Kansas. A. A. Yont, Dumm, Church left end A. Foster Howe left tackle Matteson J. G. Yont left guard Hannil Hopewell .center Coleman Jones right guard Hudleson Sinclair right tackle Mendall Oliver right end Shepard Pace quarter back. .Williamson Flippin left half Kinzie JohnBon right half Springer Mockett full back Piatt On the toss Kansas won, and took the south goal having the wind with them. Nebraska started the ball with the wedge and gained ten yards. Then Flippin knocked out eight yards more around the end. Mockett tried the left end but was downed by Dumm without much gam. In tackling him, Dumm hurt his ankle and Foster took his place. Flippin made a futile attempt to gain around the right end. Nebraska had now four yards to eain in one trial. Flippin butted the rush-line with head down but could not make it and the ball passed to Kansas. The ball was passed to Matteson, who ran like a.deer around the right end. Aided by systematic and skillful blocking he gained twenty-five yards for Kansas. Kinsey and Springer bucked the line twice each for thirteen yards. Then little Prof. Shepard made a gain of fourteen yards around the left end. In all the runs made by Shepard and Matteson the blocking of the Kansas team was excellent. Kinsey, Piatt and Springer were sent against the line and drove the ball to three yards from Nebraska's goal. At this point the ball was fumbled and twenty-two men piled up in a heap on top of it. When thev were unraveled Flippin was found at the bottom with the ball in his arms. The Nebraskans were desperate and Flippin, Johnson and Mockett hit the line like catapaults. saining about ten yards. Mockett again bucked the line Out lost tlia Dull to iiinsey. Hie Dall was passed to Kinsev who was downed six yards behind the rush line. This avousetl the Kansa3 men and on the next trial Matteson pas ed around the riht end across the goal line and secured the first touch down. Piatt kicked an easy goal. 6-0. From this time Nebraska played Kan-, sas an even game. JLbey bucket ue line with spirit. Althoup'- the ball fre-quently passed to 1-Dility to giin five yards, the Kansas men were unable to make very large ms through the line or around the cuds and Nebraska would again obtain the sphere. Kansas gained her other six points iu the first halt' in this manner : XJ.nable to gain by rushing the ball they were forced to depend on Piatt's punting. One of these puuts was stopped by a pretty jump by Oliver and resulted in a loss to Kansas". But toward tiie end of the 6rst half Piatt made a long punt with the wind; Mockett caught the ball and started to run but neglected to hold it firmly. Kinsey snatched it from him and had a clear field to the goal, obtaining a touch down which he should not have had. Piatt again kicked goal making the final score 12 to 0. In the second half the ball remained near the center of the field throughout, never passing the twenty-five yarl line on either side. It abounded in pretty tackles and good playa Had Nebraska been able to depeurl on Mockett's punting and mado use of the strong wind in the second half the score might have been tied. Foe thcNebraska learn. Flimiin nlaved his usual strong game. He is undoubt edly wie ocst man in the team, but ins blocking is not so good as it uiignt be. Oliver at riht end played an excellent game. He is a better end than full back. MocketS, made some good lackk-s, notably his tackle of Matteson on his first long run, but his punting was tkofully poor. Pace's play ws in no way inferior to Williamson's strong game. Jones in tnc rusu line na'i me oi Hamil. the hole-madcr. beli ever Flippin bucked the line at riht Kiiant he seemed lo make good jraius.

Democrats nml llryan Independent Ex-erclHO Their Lung. The thoughtful man who loooked at the total of the democratic vote in Lin coin and then listened to the noise which assailed the heavens Saturday night, would be unable to make 'em entirely agree. It was democracy's night out, and about three-fourths of the remainder of the population, with the exception of twenty-three rock-ribbed republicans who could not endure the sight, turned out to see what thev would do. There were between 600 and 800 men in line, and apparently twice that number of tin horna, along" with torches, fireworks and red fire, and there was fun for about two hours. The parade started at Eleventh and P streets and wound around a couple of squares until it struck Eleventh again, when it headed headed south. That was the last seen of it for half an hour when it re-appeared on east 0 6treet, and as it passed up between the thronged streets there was more of the same kind. It finally-stopped at Ninth and P streets, where Mr. Bryan addressed the gathering from the Hotel Lincoln balcony. It w very neat little speech, and every time the speaker paused there was a sound as of a brick block ripping apart, but it was only applause. Mr. .Bryan pressed his heartiest thanks, first to the democrats who had voted for him, and then to the independents and young re publicans, without whose aid he said he could not have been ejected, tie said that he proposed to redeem every prom ise he had made, and if his party did not stand bv the pledges the same dag ger that stabbed McKinleyism would be buried in the democratic bosom four years hence. T. J. Mahoney of Omaha also made a brief talk, and then the meeting broke up with large red shouts AN0THEB BURGLARY. Fred Brand horsfs Shoe Store Entered Saturday Jfiglit. Fred Brandhorst's shoe store at 1841 O street was entered Saturday night and goods amounting to the value of $50 taken. The burglary was discovered by Officer Jack McClelian shortly after midnight. He found the rear door unlocked and a window raised. The thieves in leaving dropped several pairs of shoes in the alley. The door was left unlocked by the clerk-s, but the burglars probably were not aware of it for they forced the window. There is no clue to the theires. AN UNFORTUNATE SCRAP. John Burlcc arid Dick TTrifrlit Qnarrci Willi Serious Result;, On Saturday evea v:u ii-vke and T'i(:'k Wright, two newspaper printers, had a sanguinary encounter on the stairway of the block at 231 South Eleventh street, which resulted rather unfortunately for "Wright. Burke was rooming in one of Wright's apartments and was on tarms of intimacy with the family. It appears that Mrs. Wright had informed her husband that Burke had insulted her and when the tno men met on the stairway W right demanded an apologv. Burke denied having insulted Airs. Wright and refused to make any apolojry, whereat Wright struck " him on the ncse. Burke knocked Wright down twice and the latter in falling broke his left ankle in two places. Mrs. Wright had Burke arrested for assault and he gave bail for his appearance tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock. THE ROPE BROKE. John H'ibliiHoa and II. S. Colyer Injured In on Accident ut the Burr Block. An accident that came near terminating fatally occurred in the alley in the rear of the Burr block about 5 :30 Satur day evening. A gaug of men were on gaged in hoisting the equipmeuts of u new steel tank to tho top of the Burr block by means of a rope and pulley. The equipments consisted of a lot of iron rods and as they were being hoisted they caught in the telephone wires. John Robinson, one of the workmen, procured a twelve loot ladder ana mounted to the top to loose the wires, while B. S. Colyer steadied the ladder. Robinson was standing on the top rung of the ladder holding onto the telephone pole when the rope from which the irou rods were suspended broke in twain and the bunch came down upon him and he was precipitated to the hard paving below. Fortunately the rods did not fall upon him or his life would have been crushed out. As it was he was rendered unconscious and pretty badly injured. His buck, shoulder and left l;nee were badly bruised, aud he was injured internally. Colyer, who was holding the ladder, was struck by the fulling mass and also "pretty seriously hurt. Robinson was removed to bis room at Tom Draper's hotel in the patrol wagon ami Colyer was tnkento his room in the Burr block. Both men are reported to be getting along nicely. U. 8. Weathar Bepon.
