v Stop and consider one moment. With so many cheap
- wheels on the market why is it that the output of Oolumbias
is constantly increasing? The. answer is obvious. Oolum
bias are worth the money $100. They are the cheapest in
the long run. Buy a cheap wheel and you will have the
same experience as all who have tried them. You will find
it's "cheapness dearly bought." We might prate about the
good points of a Columbia ad libitum, but it were wasted
words, for any one can talk. The Columbia is judged by its
acts. Ride one once, you will ride one always.

widespread attention among the devotees
of tbo racquet and net Beginning "with
Monday, May 24, the "week -was one
continuous round of triumphs, and the
new tennis 6tar can scarcely be more
pleased over his success than are
many of his friends hcreandelsewhere. His

last Tuesday's contests, mark him as
one of the strongest players behind
the net, and his work speaks well not
only for bis splendid plajing, but for
Ms remarkable exhibition of endurance.
His net work and volleying -were special
features of Ms playing.
After winning the Southern champion
ship here on Monday, May 24, at the
Bachelors' courts from J. Parnily Paret,
bv the score of 1-6; 6-3; 6-4; 6-3, he
traveled all niglit, and the next day i p
peared on the courts of the New Engl md
Lawn Club, at New Haven, ready to play
for the championship of thp New England
States' and bow well he acquitted him
self was told from day to day. If the
work of this rising youug player was re
markable in the Southern championship
ecries, his playing at New Haven was
little short of brilliant.
On Tuesday, May 25, tbef Irst day on the
New Haven courts, he easily defeated
Thomas by a score ef 6-4; 6-2. On Wcdnes
day be met anddefeated the mighty Sheldon,
Tale's crack player, the score standing
3-6; 6-3; 6-2. Shortly after this match
on the same afternoon, he defeated Bil

The double victory in one day was en
thusiastically applauded by the large
crowd of expert players and spectators
- -With the defeat of Sheldon, the popular
all-round athlete of Yale, it was generally
believed that the championship would be
won by the Georgetown man.
On Thursday Parker, another crack,
preferring not to enter the lists with the
new star, defaulted to him. On tlie same
day he continued his line of victory, and
with Eeach, he handily won the pre
liminaries in the doubles, winning from
Stoddard and Trowbridge, Yale, by a
score of 6-2; 6-4. On Triday he won the
semi-finals from H. H. Hackett, of Yale.
"With all these strong playersout of the way

doubt, and on Tuesday last be defeated
Hooker, of Yale, in the finals In three
straight sets by the score of 6-4; 6-1;
6-4, and won the champloiibhip of the
New England States.

binglea, and with G. B. Do Long held the
like title m doubles. His stjle of plajing
was not known in the Eatt until 1S95.
Last jcai he came within a point of win

and went direct to the scene of the tourney
and without auy rest took hand in the con
test, and even with such a handicap, lie
came near winning out Last fall he won
the District championship and cup from
John C. Davldran, one of the strongest and
headiest plajers this city has ever pro
duced. The score was 6-0; 6-0; 5-7;
6-4. Unfortunately the District tourney

has added to his popularity. On his return

at the 'Varsity will be completed with this
term. He has at various times won local
tourneys here and at the Slope, and, in addi
tion to being the champion of the South and
of the District and of the 'Varsity, he is
champion of Africa. The latter he w.m
several years ago while Journeying through
the Dark Continent. Several Englishmen he
met at Cairo bantered him to play for the
championship, and as no native showed a
previous title to the honor, Drlscoll took
them up and a tourney was arranged, and
behandlly won thefinals and the champion
ship, which was conceded to him, which he
still holds, no one having come forward to
challenge hi in to defend it.

'Throop, on the 50-yard mark, came
out first in Us heat, and finish
ed first in thp final from the same mark.
He rode wliat is known as a 'head race,'
rode with judgment worthy of a scratch

rode with more judgment than Halstead

that h e could have won his heat if lie had
used better judgment. JTbe trouble with
Wilson and Halstead was that, they were

The spectators objected, because the
scratch men did not qualify, ami blamed
the handlcapper because the limit was too
large; but still, on July 4 last, the mile

On last Sunday morning the boys visited
Washington Barracks for the purpose of
witnessing guard mount, after which they
iturned to the armory and discussed the
weather prior to starting on the day's run.
Owing to threatening conditions, it was de
cided to go to River View insteadof Ashton,
as originally Intended. The roads were in
fair condition, and the run was made In
about two hours. The day was spent In
bowling, rifle practice, shooting the chute,
etc., and after dinner the homeward run
wn started. This homeward run will prob
ably result In a change of name for one
of the most constant of the company and
club members. For a number of years
this member has been known as "Strength,"
"Weakness", "Vim," "Tired" and vari
ous other names to indicate a supposed
abhorrence for anything resembling physi
Oae of theconditions under which "Weak
ness" consented to go on the run was that
the pace would be "held down." On the
homeward trip "Weakness" set out to make
the pace, and the way he put it up was a
caution! Through woods, over fallen trees
and into and through a btream forty feet
wide, which might have been forty feet
deep for all be knew to the contrary.
The boys begged him to stop and rest, but
he evidently nursed deep thoughts of
vengeance, and he paid not the slightest
attention to their appeals Finally, with
a superhuman effort, he attempted to take
a hurdle cf barbed wire, but came to grief.
He succeeded in getting his wheel over,
but his own momentum was stopped by an
unusually long barb, and he hung sus
pended in midair. With fiendish delight,
his companions taunted and Jeered him for
some time before going to his rescue, and
this was only consummated after a solemn
promise had been exacted from the victim

necessary to take the electric cars to Fred

carrying the wheels, and not only did the
conductor take the wheels, but he showed
