THE EEPUBLIO: SUNDAY. 3TDLY 13. 1902.
LAWN TENNIS AGAIN BECOMES A FAVORITE OUTDOOR PASTIME.
amhdkc rctbi n.
Snap-shot taken on rnc of ii-e A A court as he was
preparing to Ltiwf rd" the ball.
Last year tennis, the ancient same, was
dead; golf claimed even body's attention.
This year It is the reverse soli has lost
many adherents. There are those who say
pteS-ptas effected the change. To ping
pong it may be due. but the fact remains
that tennis is the game of the se.iron. The
tennis expert now has all the "limelight "
St- Louis, as well as other cities, has this
tennis fetor. New courts are laid out in
all sections of the city. Almost every va
cant lot has become the headquarters of a
tennis club, where, every afternoon and
Sunday morning, enthusiasts gather for the
game. The racquet Is now of more signifi
cance than the golfer's club.
It Is particularly the younger element of
the various social circles which has thus
abandoned golf for the more v lolent. fatter,
keener trnnls game. Marching over several
miles of rough ground to complete one
game of golf has lost its glamour From
mere walking and very little game the zest
has vanished, except for oluer men. whose
chief idea is to be out of door, and who
prefer moderate to violent exercU-e.
Dan Daly, in defining golf, said:
