Introduce and make golf popular in
this country, Mrs. "Willie" Campbell
is known wherever the game is played
in America, It was not until the death
of her husband, about eighteen months
ago, that she took up golf as a profes
sion, but for two seasons now she has
been instructress on the splendid links
of Franklin Park, Mass., and has, in a
large measure, titken up the work for
merly done by her husband.
In fact, the name of Campbell will
be forever associated with Franklin
park in the minds of golf players, for
it was Willie Campbell who laid ou.t
these links, probably the finest nine
hole course in the CQuntry, and gave
the Bostonians not fortunate enough
to belong the "smart clubs" an oppor
tunity to play the game.
This was not the idea when the links

THE NEW BEVEL CUTICLE KNIFE.
Latest among the toilet accessories is
a manicure table that contains every
necessary convenience, including a
■wash bowl that has recently been de
signed by a clever New York manicur
ist. The great objections to ordinary
lalilt-s in use are the lack of running
water, and the necessity of keeping
the bottles, buffers and the several in
struments spread out upon the top.
The new table is fitted with drawers
and brackets for holding these articles
so that the top is left quite free.
Made of hardwood, neatly carved,
and polished, the table is quite orna
mental. Across the top is a thickness
of marble or glass, cut out in the cen

When the nails are being cut and pol

may be of any temparture desired,

hands to be entirely submerged.
At one end of the table is arranged

"keeper of the green." Eight years ago
Franklin Park links were not public.
The park commission taxed the play
ers, and Mr. Campbell's patrons were
largely well-known society folk of Bos

convenient during a few hours off
from business than those of the coun
Besides, the links at Franklin Park
were better than those of the Country
club at Brookline, and so it happened
that eight years ago Mr. and Mrs. Wil

Shaws and others, who have always
been prominently identified with the
Country and Myopia clubs.

WILLIE r.O.\AN ADDRESSING THE BALL UNDER MRS. CAMPBELL'S DIRECTION.
Mrs. Campbell recently, "and it seems
to me that those who come here year
after year are changing. During the
first year we had only society people,
who found the nark more convenient
than tne club links, but they were soon
driven off by others, and within a year
or two the game became so popular
there was an agitation to have the
links made public.
"There are baseball grounds, tennis
courts and playgrounds in the park,
and it was claimed that in taxing the
golf players there was discrimination
In favor of a privileged class. During
all this time I assisted my husband
giving instruction to the ladies, while
he looked after the gentleman play
So it happened that this little brown
eyed, brown-haired woman, with tan
ned face and arms, has become almost
a part of the great links at Franklin
park, where more than 200 persons
chase the golf balls over the links
every fine day. And most of these balls
are purchased from Mrs. Campbell,
who also carries on the business which
her husband- established, having as
an assistant Willie Ronan, who occu
pied a similar position with her hus
band. Willie Ronan has been associ

came to this country, about ten years
ago. Before that Willie Campbell had
won fame a_s a professional golf player

Novelties In Automobile Baskets.
Owners of automobiles are adding to
the pleasures given by their machines
by equipping them with a very prac
tical and new automobile basket. Runs
into the country are quite a fad now,
and since the weather has become
warmer hundreds of automobiles may
be daily seen spinning merrily toward
the cool, green-clad hills and river
banks, where an impromptu luncheon
is the order of the day.
Something, of course, had to be de
signed to make such picnics enjoyable,
so we have the automobile basket, fill
ing every requirement. Though there
are any number of club and road
houses where one may sit down to the
conventional noonday meal, it is far
nicer to eat one's own daintily prepar
ed sandwiches, chicken and coffee,
served al fresco.
For this purpose very compact
luncheon baskets of lacquered wicker
are made, to be strapped to the backs

opia and Country clubs, who, having
met him in Scotland, induced Mr.
Campbell to come to this country as a
professional instructor at the Myopia
and Country clubs. It was Mr. Camp
bell who laid out the course at Hamil
ton and Brookline, and taught most of
the members of both clubs the myster
ies of the game, and it was largely
through the efforts of Mr. Campbell
that golf secured such a hold on the
people of Massachusetts. Although
never taking up golf professionally,
Mrs. Campbell was constantly associ
ated with her husband in the work, and
soon became an expert at the game.
"I could live on the golf links," she
says, "and my only regret is that I
cannot play the game the year round.
When my husband was alive he was
constantly receiving offers from South
erners to " take charge of golf
courses at winter resorts, but he pre
ferred to stay here. Now that I have
been obliged to take up his work I
sometimes wish I could go where the
links would be always green.
"It is a pleasure to teach the game,
because my pupils are almost always
enthusiastic. I have yet-to find a per
son who, having gone over the links
once, is not anxious to become more
familiar with the game. It seems to
fascinate them, and I know it has a
fascination for me."

On the side of the hill is an attract
