The last number of the Electrical World contains an article on safety from electricity by Prof, Blake, This article is an abstract of the annual address delivered by him before the Association of Fire Underwriters of Missouri, Kan foot ball team returned from its western trip, and though the success was not as emphatic as Jwas desired or even ex pected.yet it was shown that, football is not confined to the institutions of learning in the east and that the wild and woolly west, considering the short period that the game has been played by western collegians, is producing foot bail players and foot ball teams to rival those found in the great eastern institutions.

It is, indeed, a wonder to what extent the game is being played in the west and it is more of a wonder to see the proficii ency of the greater number of the west" em college elevens. The varsity team played six games in the short period of ten days and thoroughly demonstrated the fact that so many games in that limited time, considering the amount of traveling necessary to be done, is too much work for any college team, It was also shown that Lincoiu and Omaha are out of the territory of eastern teams, for the simple reason that but few persons are able to stand tho effects of the alkaline water which necessity compels one to use unless water is carried lor the trip for most of the Illinois boys were sickened at both of the above named cities by the water used. Out of the six gamefjplayeu.the'varsity men secured four victories, the scores in the six games being: At St. Louis, Mo Illinois 22, Washington at Lincoln, Nebraska Illinois at Baldwin-Kan Illinois 2(5, Baker 10; at Lawrence, Kansas 20, Illinois at Kansas City, Illinois 42, Athletic club 0. The total number of points scored by the 'varsity team was 114 against a total of 42 made by the opposing teams.

The game won by Nebraska at Lin-'cclu was virtually won by Flippan. a colored half-back, who makes phenomenal rushes through the opposing" line. Flippan is of heoric build, tipping the beam at 105. and the stroig rush line of the Illinois team was unable to wit hstand his heavy onslaughts. Those who have seen and played against McCiung, Lake aud other famous line half-backs are emphatically of the opinion that Flip-pan is the equal or superior or any line half-back on tho eastern fields.

The Illinois boys were surprised to find such a game as was played against them by the University of Kansts at Lawrence. Kansas posseses an extra heavy team, which is well-balanced, and, on account of the coaching of Shepard, an ex-end-rusher of Cornell, put up a game remarkable for team work and rapid maneuvering. It is the opinion of most of the Illinois team that the Kansas eleven is the superior of the famous Purdue team, which is at present posing as the champion eleven of the west. Chicago News-Record. The Phi Psis have cornered the Iowa foot ball team, having five regular players and two substitutes; and the Independents have a corner on the Missouri team, prohibiting fraternity men from entering the team The Independent corner is more successful than the Phi Psi coiner, howeyer, for the Missourians defeated the Iowa boys by a ficore of 24 to 0.
