Mrs. Longtry enjoys tho relaxation from

nro many ladies' clubs in tbo city which

If Shakcspearo was not guilty of an an
achronism, Cleopatra was familiar with
billiards, nnd certainly tho fair half of crea
tion could find much less rational amuse
ment, for it is estimated that an averogo
player walks ono niilo whilo ploying a game of
twonty-fivo points with throo balls or thirty
four points with four bolls on a toblo 5 by
10 feet in dimension. In making; tho various
shots tho player must necessarily bring at
times each and ovory uiubcIo of his body
into piny, whilo the intricacies of tho gamo
force brain activity, nnd tho player with tbe
best brain and nervo usually wins.
" It is difficult to say nrbitrarily how many
lessons make a player," said John Decry.
" It all depends on tho player. Most pupils
at first play before and after tbo lesson until
thoy aro tired out. The lesson is usually ouo
hour, and ten constitute n course. Very few
pupils finish tho courso. simply because they
get tired of playing with tho sumo person.
Wotooch as rapidly as possiblo all the
' points' of tho gamo, tho ' side stroke,'
'draw, 'follow,' 'rail nursing,' 'masse,'
' kiss shots,' and so on. Most pcrsonB desire
only to learn to play as a social accomplish

" It's difficult to hay how much it costs to
learn, but it is safo to say that any player
who is materially better than tho average has
spent a small fortuno in becoming bo."
