He has returned, and Is disappointed that ho had no golf on any of the CalEar>-courses, but wot weather prevented It. Tho annual college football season Is due to open, Saturday, September 2S. Although, as a rule, a majority of tho prominent teams may not measure up to the standard of other yearj!. because of the absence of seasoned players who have answered the call to the colors, the game will not lose any of its attractiveness, all the ability of ,the players who will come out for Instruction is expected to result in increased interest. Games with elevens representing the army training camps and naval stations are to feature some of the schedules, and negotiations are in progress. The Carlisle Indians will be missing from the gridiron this season, because the school proiierty at Carlisle, Pa., has been taken over by the war department and will bo used for con valescont soldiers.

In one particular Collins has Cobb beaten. He is more even in his play than his great opponent, and no mat Ewert Cup Is due next week-end, it is understood. Whether it will be played off on Saturday next or on the following Jlonday, Labor Day, is for the executive to say.

New York.- A veteran observer of baseball jilayers says: When the De-troits were in Chicago there were many iu the stands who wondered whether Ty Cobb or Eddie Collins was the more valuable pl.iyer to his team. All brands conceded Cobb to bo tho more brilliant of the pair. They conceded, too, that Collins often did things that were great and often spectacular, but that his work was always over-shadowed by the wonder-1 ter what happens, he preserves his ful doings of Cobb. ! equilibrium better than the Georgia ....

Collins has not been In the game so long as his great rival, Cobb. He has assistance the big fellow would proceed to beat up the caller and all others In roach. "Yes, mother," was tho cue for tho post to get ready .to receive u beating, aind when John L. said "Yes, mother," in that deep bass voice of his, the pests braced themselves so as to be able to recoivo the shock which came wlien the veteran went over tho top after them. Sheriffs, collectors ftnd others In the Sullivan companies generally resigned at the end of the first week's engagement without giving in thoir usual two weeks' notce,- and often tho pugilist had to bribe them as well as pay their doctor bill.

One day in New York he disappeared from the theatre and after a long search was found wandering tho streets in the busiest part of ihc big town and peddling newspapers with a lot of newsboys. Picked up by tho police and brought into a station it was found that he v.-as demented, and it took his family some timo to bring him back to his senses. MACLEOD (From Tho News). '! Lient. B.

Four Teams to Make Trip to Island Republic. "What's to become of all the prizefighters who used to go on the stage and star in melodrama?" a friend asked the other night. Then I remembered that for the first time in a score of years, there is not a single pugilist filling tho leading role. John L. Sullivan used to star in "Honest Hearts and Willing Hands' and crowds flocked to see him. Corbett, in a play called "Pals," made a fortune and looked awfully swell in tlie role ot a midshipman. Fitzsimmons used to star in the old play of "Box and Cox" and the "Village Blacksmith," and right on the stage Bob made and gave away horseshoes. , It is 13 years ago since Jim Jeffries took the road with "Davy Crockett," and about that time Terry McGovern was playing Spiko the Newsboy in the old "Streets of New York." Jeffries as Davy Crockett. Who that saw him will over forget when big Jim tried to play tho part of Davy Crockett, made famous by Frank Mayo? When the curtain went up on tho Cincinnati.-Plans are alreay under way for an invasion of Cuba this fail by a number ot major league baseball player;3 over tho draft age. The number of players to visit tho island depends entirely upon the speed with which Cuba drafts its new army. If the Cuban baseball players are taken Into tho service a large squad of Americans, perhaps large enough for four teams, will make the trip. Otherwise, only enough players to form one strong club to play against the islanders wiU go. Frank Bancroft, business manager of, the Cincinnati Nationals, probably will have charge of tho expedition If he does not organize an uU-star team to tour tlilfi country. The latest celebrity to take up golf lis Mary Piikto-^ Botcd firm star. opening act , Jeffries was revealed dressed up just as Mayo used to dress' the part in the olden time: You saw Davy looking up at the mountain top, one foot on the mountain path and tho other on tho stage, and then you heard him get off that famous line: "Be sure you're right and then go ahead.'' During the play Jim would tramp around the stage like a big elephant, and just before the curtain fell on the last act his stage mother would ask: "Are you still right, Davy?" "Suro, mother." "Then go ahead." Then big Jim would make a dive for the villain and the curtain would fall amid tremendous applause. Jim did not stay on the road long with his play, although he made good money out ot it. Ho quit early, and when he quit he told his friends that | he hated the stage and everything connected with it. Apart from elocution, there have been worse actors than Jeff. \ Sullivan's "Mother and Me." John L. Sullivan used to buy every play that was offered hira. One dramatic writer in New York made a fine living by just writing .plays for the Boston pugilist, not one ot which was ever produced. AU tho big fellow ever asked ot the play writers was that they put In a good part for "mother and me." In his plays the mother was always the leading lady John L. was strong for niothers and he would not toucli a play unless the mother was "It." The mother was always being surprised by the tax collector, the gas man, the butcher, the grocer, tho sherlK or some other pest, anfl when mother would call on John L. for sized crowds turn out in Washington, but tho only places whore really large crowds are found are In Cleveland and Boston.
