Out-of-door athletics are to be fos

never before ami a number oT; new
(fames win dp taken up Hint promise
to add greatly to the interest of
members. In the first plaee lawn
tennis is to be niude a feature. The

the season ami the forming of a ten

smp is iimiieu 10 iwentv an l seven
teen have already enrolled, 'the dues
are "... cents at the start and 5 cent?
a week thereafter. This is finding
much favor with the business men.
An Out-of-door gymnasium will 1m
installed on the llhikeslcy lot west
f the rear part or the association
numiing. i ins is over nil) teet long
and 4t feet wide. There has leen a
si roil"1 desire to have a gymnasium of
this sort for some time past, but- the
lot has been too low. The excava

son erectcil altoiit it lias irourht it
up to a suitable elevation. The
"round will be levelled ami a high
wire netting fence built on the south
and unenclosed portion of. the west

include indoor baseball, basketball.
handball, ouoils and others. The fa
cilities for handball courts are espec
ially line and there is room tor n
louble court," following out the itlea
under which the game was originally
invented. With double courts the
ball is hounded from one court to
the other without striking the
ground. The players Ihus slaml with
their Iwicks together. I'lectric tights

Another diversion that has found
favor in past seasons, but which has
been limited on account of lack of
certain facilities, is that' of runs
awheel. In other seasons!! has been
difficult to find places where supper
could le secured at the far end of
Ihe run. This trouble has Wen obvi
ated,, it. seems, several places having
been discovered since last. year. A
