TWAT nGHR RUG,
HAVE GOLF CO UESE
Nine Hole Course to Be Built
For Use Next Season,
The Southwestern system will install
a nine-hole golf course at Cloudcroft
nest spring and will have it in readi
ness for the opening of the summer
season at the mountain resort. This
j announcement was made bj' assistant
passenger agent Garnett King, Who
added that the company would pot only
furnish the ground for the golf course
and have the links laid out, but will
maintain the course during each sum
mer season at the Croft.
A committee of golfers headed by J.
C. Wilmarth, of the Country club, will
arrange the details of the new golf
course, which will be laid out either by
D. S. Libie, the Country club golf ex
pert, or Jack Adams, the Douglas pro
fessional. The possibilities of golf at
Cloudcroft are unlimited. King says,
and the Southwestern system Is plan
ning to make the most of these possi
bilities. The course will be similar to
the old one which was used two years
ago and will be laid out through the
pine woods and over the rolling ground
surrounding the new lodge. The course
will be cared for the same as the east
ern courses, and the grass will be kept
trimmed to permit the golfers to have
the pleasure of playing over the only
grass course in the southwest.
Inquiries are being received from
the prominent golf journals of the
country for information about the golf
course above the clouds,

LOVINGTON THE CHAMPION
OF M5W MEXICO PLAINS
Defeat the Knowles Team in a Hard
Fought Game on Its Home Ground:
Cowbells Used by Rooters.
Lovington, N. CV. Sept. 15. Many
residents of the New Mexico plains
country turned out to witness the ball
game at this place, between the
Knowles and Lovington teams, for the
championship of the plains.
The Knowles team was strengthened
by players from various points in Tex

land pitcher. The local team also im

Caldwell was on the slab for Loving

It was a fart game from the start
and the ginger and snap in evidence
would have done credit to a league

Again the roundup ropers have been
at work and another cull has been cut

it was Whitey Hewitt who had the

loose on the open range with the oth

cut off from the feed trough.
Hewitt's release came Thursday
morning, making the seventh of the El
Paso club to be released during the
week. J. B. Brewster, of Fort Worth",
and Waco, of the Texas league, has
been signed to play third in place of
the boy with the cannon ball peg.
Brewster will appear In the lineup in

j TEXAS MEN HEADY
FOR NEXT SEASON
Several Texas Leaguers Go
to Faster Company ;.
Scouts Are Out.
(By Horace H. Shelton).
Pitcher Blanding and first baseman
Hohnhurst, of the San Antonio team,
have been drafted by the Cleveland
Americans. Tolegraphic notice to that
effect has been received here. Hohn
hurst Is now at his home near Cincin
nati, while Blanding is at his home
in Birmingham, Mich. Both of these
men did excellent work with the Bron
chos last season and their loss will
greatly weaken the team which was
pulling down no medals for Sandow
work at the close of the season.
Manager Leidy, of the San Antonio
team, who has been retained for next
year. i; now on a scouting trip in the
South Michigan league. From there he
will look over players in Pennsylvania
and Virginia. He has written several
classy young players who have put
their names to 1911 San Antonio con
tracts. "Dutch" Klawitter, the Texan with
Memphis in the Southern league, has
made eminently good. Although with
the tail onders he has won nearly as
many games as any picher in the
league. He went from Texas to the ma
jor league, but was sent back to the
Southern league. His showing this
season has been so good in the south
that he gets another chance in faster
company next year. In addition to be
ing a good pitcher he is a pinch hit
ter of note, an unsual thing for a
Pat Newnam. the Houston player
with the St. Louis Browns, has bucked
the traces. He has got his back up
just as he often did in Texas and which
greatly impaired his usefulness.
O'Connor would not stand for it and
the result is the Texan -has been sus
pended indefinitely and his pay stop
ped. The offense occurred in last Sun
day's games. One of the inflelders
made a wild peg to Pat and he failed
to connect with it. This angered him
and instead of making a sprint for the
ball he lazed along The result was the
man trotted around the bases home.
O'Connor fell on Pat like a ton of
brick. There was a little back talk.
The result is Pat will miss a pay en
velope or two.
