the total carcasses condemned, M.'JWi.
In the microscopic inspection of pork,
H99.534 carcasses were examined. Of
these, but 19.44S, or 1.95 per cent., weio
found to contain living trichinae. The
total cost of inspection was but a lew

shipped acioss tho Atlantic, the loss
amounted to but .SI per cent.; of .sheep.
.71 per cent., and of hors.es, 2.:j per

great Increase in the number of hmses
exported. Of these, over 29,000 weio

Phlliulolphla, Nov. 29. Before what
was ptobublv the laigest eiowd that
ever attended a Thanksgiving day foot
ball game in this city, the University
of Pennsylvania football team to-day
defeated the Cornell eleven by the
one-sided score of ! to 0. Only once
dining the intlie contest was the
Quakei goal line In d'Higer of blng
ctosseti by an Ithaca player, and din
ing most of the time the ball was in
Cornell's teirltory. Pennsylvania won
the battle by tialtrht, hind fontbill.
''he white and cai nelian men played
fleitelv at times, but no matter how
hard they tiled, old Pennsylvania could
not be halted on her match to vietoiy.
The Quakei s' main play wn their fa
mous gtiai ds back, formation, which
they woiked like a machine.
Soon after the game began, it became
.ipp.nent that the plaveis ot botn
teiins were not all In that prime con
dition which Is gimi'illv epected in
big games. Captain Staibuek, who had
Jtisl leeoveinl fiom injuiies, was
lorefd to leave the field soon aft"r
pl.i "taited. Captain Haie al1-!-!
showed igns of lack of condition and
although he did not leave his team,
he fieftuently was laid out. True, he
put up lilt' usual haid. aggiessho
g-ime. but he lulled to shine as biil
llautly as he has heietofoie. It w.t)
his last g.ime as a Pennsylvania play-
r, ami it was expected he would put
up the gi cutest loot'o.ill of his bril
liant c.u-t"i AleCiackc n, who has
shlneil both :is a star gi.aid and tull
back for lhe past four je.u-s and who
lined up for the last time to-dny on
the Oiiaku team also had to iii'it the
aiue becaii'-e of li.juilef. ho susiiilii" t
to his 1 uiif shoulder. Ni-nilv all the
sjiietutois in lhe tour cioudcd stands

or tv.o exceptions, tip. pl-ij-pis of tho
two team-, came out ol the game tint
much the wcuse- foi vveai.
The Contest Bather Slow.
The eonte-t dining most ot the time
was lather .slow and lacked spine,
lleie and thete either te.im vvouhl
make a dashing plaj only to tall back
into the same languid style of advanc
ing the ball cu defending the goal. Uf
the few brilliant plays that m.uked the
same, Potter's run of ." ynids for a
touchdown outshone all the otheis.
The fleet half back was given the ball
exactly in the center of the Held tor a
plunge through the middle of (Jom-ll's
line. Penn's big forwards opened a
hole big enough for the ptoveibl.il
horse and cart to drive through the
Ithaca line. Potter almo-it fell as hu
was pushed Into the hole, but ho kept
his teet and made a wild diish for Cor
nell's goal line. After the Cornell men
hud recovered fiom their surpil.se, lour
of them started astern chase after the
little man with the ball. Just as Pot
ter reached the live yaid ltituk one of
Cornell's big line men grasped hhn
.iiound tho waist, but Potter lnunaa'iu
tu stumble over the goal line lor what
pioved to ho Penn's last touchdown.
The gieat run was all over in almost a
Next to Potter's run was Morrison's
sprint for thirty yauls around Ponii'ii
left end. The Cornell men had lined
up for n kick, but It pioved to be a
"fake" move, and the Quaker men
were completely taken In by the mil
nouvre. This dash of Morrison's
moused much enthusiasm among tho
Cornell spectators, and for the next
live minutes pushed the Quakei. s down
tho field for a distance of forty ynids,
when the Now Yoik .statu team lost
the ball on an attempt to kick a Held
goal from the Quaker SO-yard line.
Outside of tho above mentioned in
stances, theio wns little brilliant indiv
idual playing. Put cell unci Morrison
played strong, consistent foot ball in
the face of udverslty. The other men
on the Cornell eleven did not get much
chance ns the Ithacans seldom had tho
leather long enough to glvo otheis
than fho Dacks an opportunity to ad
vance the pig skin. For the Quakers,
Hmo and McCruckou did the uent
(woik until they weto hull. Tous and
Wulliic.fi were not far behind them,
while the performances of the two
aardlners and the half backs wtne
worthy of mention. In the kicking lino

neither side had anything on the other

very little 'buttorflnger" playing, and
what there was of It was not costly.
The Quaker team had a tendency to

it was frequently penalized for this

Pennsylvania's llrst touchdown wus

losing the leather, curried It by the aid
