Had Ilughey Jennings suspected
that Schaefer could bo made into a

Cunningham Big Disappointment.
Bill Cunningham has earned for him
self the reputation of being the great
est disappointment in the history of
the American league. Cunny's work
last fall was of such a high order that
it was generally conceded McAleer had
picked up a youngster who was sure
to be a star. lie hit and fielded well
and left little to bo desired in his play
ing. That was last fall, but this seasnn
it is different. Cunningham's record
would probably show that he has
struck out moro often than any other
player in the circuit, not oven barring
the pitchers. Ho seems absolutely un
ablo to connect with" tho ball, and yet
ho has a good position at the plate
nnd does not pull away an inch. Cun
ningham's batting suggests that there
is some fault with his eyes, for he
seems to hit at tho ball either boforo
it reaches him or long after it has
passed him. Tho failure of Cunning
ham to play up to his last year's stand
ard has been a severe blow to tho
team. Of that there is no doubt. Ilad
he held up his end numerous switches
in the infield would not have been nec
essary, and a team which is always
changed about seldom plays steady

Arrangements havo been made by tho
State university of California for a
series of two intercollegiate Rugby
games with the university of Nevada
next fall. Ouo of tho games will be
played at Reno Oct. 7 nnd tho return
match on the local gridiron Oct. 23.
Games will also probably bo arranged
during tho fall season with the Vic
toria nud Vancouver teams, provided
a series of matches can bo arranged

No Freshmen Athletes ot Weeleyan.
The Wesleyan (Conn.) university fac
ulty has voted that, beginning m tho
fall of 1012. no freshman will be nl
lowed to participate in intercollegiate
athletics of any kind. This order, a
radical one for a small college, will bar
tho freshmen effectually from football

I THE TAMING
OF A SE
A Case In Which Shake
speare's Method Failed.
"I'm afraid," said my friend, Peter
Bliss, "that tho girl I'm going to mar
ry la n shrew."
"You are Pete, and Bho Is Katherlnc.
Why not try Petruchlo's plan?"
"Who was Petruchlo?"
"A character in Shakespeare's play
of tho 'Taming of the Shrew.' Ho
pretended to be fiercer than his wife,
Katherlnc, and' in this way brought
her under subjection."
"That's not n bad iden."
Tho next time 1 suw PeterBliss was
at the club. His wife was lu tho
country, nnd he was living a bach
clor's life. I wont up to him and of
fered my hand, which he took coolly.
"What's tho matter, old man?"
"What did you put me on to that
Petruchlo business for?"
"Didn't it work?"
"Oh, yes, it worked, but in a differ
ent way from tho play."
"We had been married u week," ho
said, "and returned from our wedding
trip. 1 got down that play you told
mo about nnd read It. The first thing
that Petruchlo did to show his spunk
was to complain nt dinner that the
meat was not properly cooked and
send it nway. I suppose this was to
starve his wife into subjection. Well,
I concluded to try the same scheme.
At our first meal 1 flourished tho carv
ing knife nud cried out that the meat
was burned and not fit to eat.
" 'Bridget.' I yelled, 'take away this
meat, and tho next time you roast a
piece of beef In this house don't cook
It all day!'
"With this I got up from the table
aHd went out, slamming the door.
''I didn't go home till late, because
I wanted to give Kate time to think
over what a terrible fellow I was and
make up her mind to smooth mo down
gently. When 1 went up stairs I
found that she had gone off Into the
guest room to sleep, leaving mo our
bedroom to rave lu as much ns I liked.
Although I was disappointed that she
had not secelved me humbly after the
outbreak and endeavored to pacify
me. It was plain that she was afraid
of me, nnd this was so much to the
good. I didn't sleep very well and the
next morning went down to breakfast
fooling much In need of a good cup of
coffee. Entering the dining room, I
was surprised to see no cloth ou the
tnjj'le. What I did see wns a note
from Kate saying that as the servant
had departed bag and baggage tho day
before there would bo no meals served
In tho house for the present. She
(Kate) had gone to her mother's for
breakfast and 1 could get mine where
"Tho result of the first move was not
quite satisfactory. I didn't seem to
havo terrified my wife, and I had been
the means of losing a very good serv
ant. Tho truth is that I didn't have
the heart to go any further. Never
theless, after I had got a miserable cup
of coffee at a restaurant (I didn't dare
to como hero for fear of having to
answer questions), I went back home
and, sitting at my wife's writing desk,
wrote her a note directing her to re
turn to tho house, find a servant and
behavo herself. I sent It by a messen
ger, directing that the answer be
brought to me at tho office. I was
nfrald I wouldn't get an answer, but
I did. My wife Informed mo that ns
I had been tho cause of the servant
leaving she would expect mo to secure
another, when she would go home tit
"There was nothing to do but hunt
the Intelligence offices, question girls
and engage one. I went through a lot
of them, selected the best of tho lot
nnd hired her. but she never appeared.
Then I went through the terrible work
a second time, with tho same result
Tho third girl I engaged appeared, but
while wnltlng for mo to get home tho
servnnt next door told her what a
frightful temper I had, and she told
mo when I camo she had decided that
she did not want to stay.
"Meanwhllo I had not sent a word
to my wife, hoping that ray silence
would trouble her. I resolved now to
write her that she was. leaving work
to mo that really belonged to her and
that It was her duty to come homo nud
attend to tho servant matter herself. I
was surprised to receive a very kind
uoto in reply, saying that 1 was quite
right. She was the proper person to
engage a girl and she would gladly do
so provided tho girl was not to bo
treated as tho last one had been.
"What I had to do in order to return
to comfort was to make u simple prom
ise not to make an ass of myself
again nnd nil would bo well, but this
was surrender, and I assumed that it
meant living under subjection for tho
rest of my life, nowever. It was tho
only thing to do, and when I did it I
apologized handsomely, adding that I
had mado tho experiment of living
without her, but had found she was
not only necessary to run the house,
but it was desolate without her,
"I got no reply to tho note, but when
I went homo nt dinner time my wife
met mo at the door, threw her arms
about mo nnd mado mo happy as a
king. Tho Bervnnt I had abused was
cooking n dinner, and tho house was
In perfect order. Kate has since given
mo my way all I have wanted.
"It's my opinion about women," add
ed Peter, "that to have your own way
with them you've first got to make a
complete surrender. Then you can do
what vou like,"
