SlX INCHES FROM GOAL, BUT LOST.
For a time it looked as though nothing could stop them. The Pennsylvania line was a sieve through which they poured, and as one chalk line after another was left in the rear a hush fell over the crowd. Nearer and nearer the line the egg-shaped, harmless-looking missile was taken. and almost before the spectators knew only one yard of ground was between their assailants and the much coveted touchdown. Right here, though, Captain Wharton and Aide de Camp Minds rallied their forces, a brief council of war was held while one of the bruised combatants was getting his armor repaired. Then the final rally was made. One, twice, thrice, the Indians bombarded their white foes. Each time the ball passed close to the goal line that only when the men were untangled from the pile could the location of the ball be determined. Each time it was less than a foot from the line, the last time just six inches.
That gave the ball to Pennsylvania, but time was up for the half, and the game was over, the final ten minutes of play being as grand, as superb an exhibition as has ever been witnessed. The hero of it all was Metoxen, a small, broad-shouldered, sturdy-built red skin who nearly put the entire forces of Pennsylvania to rout. The nervous tension on the crowd in the last two minutes was something awful, a silence such as once reigned over the spot when it was a primeval forest, fell over all.”
Great credit is due our substitutes for their good work, and taking the contest all in all it has been pronounced by prominent experts as one of the greatest games of recent years.

Although we do not advise students to go back to the discouraging conditions which exist on many of our Indian reservations,
many have done so, and the large majority of them are doing well. Many will remember Jonas Metoxen, one of Carlisle’s most
famous fullbacks in the early days. Jonas is an Oneida from Wisconsin, and now lives at Freedom, in that state. He owns one of the best homes on the reservation, is married to a Carlisle girl, has a nice family, and is a prosperous farmer.

they came had expired, and their parents demanded their return.
The hour of leaving was a sad one. The very clouds wept as the long line passed out of the gate and down the lane to the
station, while the silent tear that was hastily brushed from the eye of many a friend left behind, and the hard choke that came in the throats of those leaving, as the last “good-bye” was said, will never tind expression. These young people are launclsine out on a troubled sea. They know not the dangers that are before them, and get many are conlident. They are FULL of coufidence, which perhaps is the greatest danger of all. May their frail little boats not go Zown in the
treacherous waves tha,t delight in tossing about the barks weakly manned, and may each, through hard pulling, if need be, and straight steering, come out IU the eud a brave
captaiu in the cause of RIGHT, is tbe ardelst wish of their very best friend-the Man-op-the-band-stand.
