W ?> "NEWBERRY TEN MS <;0SSI1?
By A. Frank.
Inasmuch as a goodly number o: our
good people seem to verily delight
k themselves in the great fame of tenm
nis,?we think it might be interesting
v to the general public to know just
about "Who's who,''?and way. Truly
it delighted our hearts to see the
interest and enthusiasm that has been
shown by so many aspirants to tennis
honors,?and it is particularly gratiL
fying to see so many promising play*
ers among the youngsters. .
"CVoA TArAWAcf cViAiilH Via mon.
?' 11 Ol anu xv/x ViiJUcH \s uiva wv iaivu
P tioned one of the "old gaurds,''?who
is prone to refer to the time when his
hair was plentiful.?and his weight
light,?and his game fast and furious.
We re.er to none other than Chimerical
Douglas Weeks. Weeks has a
banck-hand stroke, on return, that is
the despair of all young players who
dare tacKie mm,?ana u inigiu De saia
that Sir Douglas uses this stroke with
telling effect against some of us older
players. Also, his "cut" is good. (We
do not refer to the cut of his hair.)
j} It has been noticed, however, by his
opponents, that, when Sir Douslas becomes
short of wind,?one of his shoes
obligingly becomes untied,?and when
this gentleman under discussion gets
unusually short Of wind,?not only
rlr\ne Vio C + rvTl tr? tip "Ms <j"hnp (hilt alsn
pauses to "wipe his specs." On the
whole, though, Weeks is one of the
"best in town, and is "k true lover of
? good, clean s.port. Even so.
P . A player who ha? shown decided
improvement, since the beginning of
Ik the season,?and who now plays a
good game, is Hilarious Herman^
Wright. ("Hi"' for short.) It is next
to impossible to slip one past him
"when in doubles, he stands guard at
the net. In fact, his reach is prodigious,
and he uses it with telling
effect. It should be mentionel, though,
that when geared in high speed, and
headed toward one side of the court,
b "Hi" finds it extremely difficult to
put on brakes and reverse himself.
And* wo en he finds that some of the
halls are irressistibly attracted by
the net,'?and some others go ''out,"?
this tall specimen utters sounds closely
resembling an infuriated male s^oat,
?all of which is very much to the delight
and entertainment of all those
present. His subtle wit is the joy of
our hearts,?and 'he is a jolly good
fellow and an enthusiast.
Bouncing Bud Bowers! We almost
grew nervous at the mere mention
of his name! (To the uninitiated, he
is known as A. Jackson, or Jack.)
Without fear of successful contradic
tion, we maKe tie simple ana uuauuined
statement that Jack is one of the
most scientific players in these parts.
In short, he uses his head, (in more
ways than one.) Bouncing Bud Bowers
and' Braying Bob Allen make a
great pair. In confidence, (and we
. hope it will never reach t:.eir ears),
' each of these redoubtable combatants
secretly believes that when in good
form he can possibly manage to win
over the other at singles. We sv.aU
leave this as a point of .honor between
them,?for far be it from us to express
an opinion on such a deep subject,?especially
since Bouncing Bud's
hair has of late become visible, even
to the unaided eye. (In this connection,
we hereby promise an interesting
x * ? ^"1 /% ^ nnrn in o

a horrible conspiracy instigated by the
fertile brain o: (Sir Douglas, and later
adopted by Sir Jackson. This will be
interesting reading. Jack is a cracking
good player and will always make
things extremely interesting to any
person desiring a fast game of tennis
fc rmitp frvn/1 of a "love"
Xext in our discourse we come to
^ Braying Bolt Allen,?a light-footed
young mountaineer, whose racket \>r.
courts is second only to tne racket
he raises in several of our more fortunate
homes and churches. R. E. is
an prtriinon to anv club and a terror
to any heart that has had the fortitude
to oppose him,?which reminds
us of an inquiry of recent date from
J his outlaw (Allen) relatives in Virginia
as to 'why he failed to stop
over on his recent vacation,?which
was to include Washington, Baltimore
and little old New York. The prevalent
opinion is that the mountains
of North Carolina toppled over on
him,'which prevented the pursuit of
(his proposed itineary,?or the Savages
in the Palmetto State either got his
scalp or his heart. Really Bob is a
volcano of tennis enthusiasm, and has
greatly improved the complexion of'
the tennis world since has recent debut
in the local play.
Next on our list we find the name
of Eugennics Panegyric Jones. Dr.
Jones is fast developing form, and has
a slow cut that is liable to bounce
in any direction, or not bounce at all,
fV?a mnvcc it?fmno wtiVh
ao tug j-"v w -"j ^?
we surmise that that particular cut
must certainly have "Quaker" blood, j
His "cross court fire" is very effective,
?as much so,??\vhen working well.?
as that tpye ot' German siege gun.
When this gentleman makes up his
ininrl fn rlplivpr n n;i 1 -a rlv r*lf-vpr
"service,"?he obligingly announces
that he is now "go;ng to brea'K tr.e
lasses jug." We must say, as a matter
of record, though,?that it sometimes
happens that instead of the good
doctor breaking the lasses jug of his
opponent,? that same opponent succeeds
in completely demolishing the
recepticle for "lasses" of Dr. Jones.
But this does not dismay the imperturable
Dr. Jones,?for he goes back
at them with a vim, vigor and vitality
that is-indeed refreshing. It is a pity
that a large number of "the older set"
do not turn out and become rejuvenated.
Excitable Ernest Anderson is a puzzle
to the tennis world. It is with the
utmost difficulty to at he can be enticed
into a game. 'We are of the opinion
that he should not so consistently
deny himself to those who are continuallv
after his tennis "scaln." But
the few times that he has allowed
himself to be seduced over to the
court.?he has demonstrated that he
can deliver the goods in the line of a
fast game. It has 'been whispered
around among the cognoscenti, that
Excitalble Ernest as well as Bouncing
Bud is quite fond of a "love" game.
Robust Richard Floyd, the very few
times he has nlaved.?has nlaved fur
iously. It is to be hoped that Dick
will play enough to get back in form,
?and he will be a foe, indeed, for any
Jurisprudence Hosanna Harms loves
a set of tennis,?if taken in moderation
"Rut hp it nnrJprfttfirvri hpfnrp
hand that there must be an intermission
between sets. Dr. Harms plays
a very good game,?and his genial
^good nature and ready repartee is
thoroughly enjoyable. And there is
net a more loyal devotee in Newberry
than Educationist Bouyant Setzler,
?iwho enjoys a good clean game,?and
who will make vou fetick to the rules.
We look for Drs. Setzler and Harm's
to develop some good material among
the boys this year. And *we must
not leave out Jovial Blissful Setzler,
?who is as yet among the dilettant,
?but who aspires to become a con
noisseur. 0: course Dr. John is well
liked by us all. Sir Flexible Winning
Chapman has a return ball that
is really an eye-opener. At least, the
writer found it so. We sincerely hope
that Frank will open his-heart and
play a bit more than he has been doing,?for
his game is fast, and hei s a

A Question for Teachers.
To those who prepare questions for
teacher candidates I would like to
submit the following historical query:
"Was the South responsible for the
Civil War?"' An intelligent Southerner
would answer negatively; another
might give an affirmative answer.
And, in this free country a private
individual may entertain any sort of
wild notions but can the State afford
to employ teachers who disseminate
political business and traduce the
menory of Robert E. Lee and that of
thp rpsf o,:~ r/he .brave men who fous:ht
in defense of our homes and firesides?

How it Started.
We all know how the war started
in Europe, but very few of us agree
in our views on the subject. Whenever
that question comes up, it starts

practically all of us, consciously or
unconsciously, are partisans and cannot
take a ifair and dispassionate view
of the outbreak. In fact, we have
seen but one such fair and dispassionate
view. Tie Sentinel, a paper
published in Mitchell county, Kansas,
States the outbreak in a way that is
absolutely non-partisan, which is a
remarkable feat, sq remarkable that
we republish what it said in full, as
"As we understand it, a Servian
socialist who was partly sane when

noble and his. noble escort. Austria,
observing the unseemly incident,
addressed herself sternly to Servia,
somewhat as follows:
"See here, kid, no rough stuff. I
propose to be a father to you. Come
into the woodshed."
"Hold on," says Russia, "don't
you dare lay a finger on the kid,
Austry: he's my krd," says he,

I!v< !*v Youth Should Work For College
Philadelphia Public Ledger.
Man is triune, and-the highest ideal
of a complete man or woman is a
healthy body, a strong, clear mind and
a pure character. The absence of
either makes life a failure and a pain.
An ideal education, then, includes phyc*

The omission of either is a great
weakness in any scheme of education.
Therefore, fortunate is the man who
has an opportunity to work with his
hands or body while he is training his
constitution as a foundation, and
weaklings must fall out. Rut with
me lnnemea or acquired pnysicai
basis the student who earns his living
and the living of some dear one
while he studies in his college course
will outclass all competitors. The history
-of our great men and women,
past and present, proves that statement.
The boys and girls who paid their
own way and learned to economize
closely and to work hard are the
most influential class in every com
munity. Many a rich man's son has
been destroyed by too much money in
the days when he needed most to be
taught to earn money and to take care
It would be a great blessing to the
nation if every student was compelled
to earn all of his expenses while in .
college or university. We would be
come a nation of mighty men. A very
rich man in Verfnont informed me that :
r.e told his oldest son that if he (the j
son) did not earn his own expenses :
during the four years of college at j
Burlington he would surely disinherit J
him. That son is now one of Ver- j
mont's foremost citizens, respected !
