BILLY LEDGER'S GOSSIP
THE horrors of war were brought home to
the 1st City Troop on Tuesday. You will re
call that the thermometer dropped Just 32 de
grees on that day. It was the troop's anni
versary and they had to parade In nil their
full dress regalo, Including the medieval hel
met so responsive to the brisk autumnal Winds
nnd those wonderfully Immaculate white tights.
As they turned around the corner of 13th
and Walnut streets, passing the nice, warm
and cosy home of the Philadelphia Club, It
must have been something of a Spartan test
Indeed to keep on walking. Nevertheless, the
troopers made up for their chilly stroll by a
spanking banquet at the armory that evening.
As one member expressed It to me later In
the evening, "There was a bowling flowl 'ntota
of cine Hears."
We can take Care of our enemies, but heaven
defend us from our fr)ends. The axiom was
well illustrated recently, according to a story
going the rounds of tho Racquet Club Just
now. It appears that a well-known nian-about-town
who, however, has the falling of being
somewhat careful, of his money nlbelt ho Is
more than welt supplied with the world's goods,
spent the night at his club playing bridgo and
nt the end ot the session found himself somo
(200 ahead ot the game. He was so elated over
his success that the next morning he called
his wlfo Upon the telephone to tell her of his
"Now Just what would you like to have,
dearie?" he ndded In an unwonted outburst ot
generosity. A reply was made and he said,
"Well thpy will cost about (SO. won't they; go
right ahead and get 'em."
It so happened that a friend of the couple,
a famous wag and practical Joker, was In the
adjoining booth and overheard the conversa
tion. Being an Intimate friend of both hus
band and wife, he called Madame up as soon
as he heard hubby ring off.
"Did you hear of Sam's streak of luck?" he
"Yes," was the reply, "He's such a child, he
Just phoned me to tell mo all about It!"
"It certainly was wonderful," continued the
dlBClplo of Machlavelll, "playing all night that
way. At one time do you know ho was over
"Whaaat!" came an exclamation from the
other end ot the vtlre.
"Tes, Indeed, and he quit (700 to tho good."
There was a moment of grim silence, then,
"Just wait till I get hold ot that llttlo tight
wad. He'll get what's coming to him!"
And ever Jtnce that tlim husband has been
trying to square himself "without making any
material progress," ns General Joftre telegraphs
dally in his ofUcial communique to the French
Government on tho situation at tho scat of
Although the duck shooting tills year was
not so good as usual at the opening of the
season owing to the late autumn and the
drought, the Susquehanna flats and Delaware'
marshes wore crowded with Philadelphia's lead
ing nportBtnen.- as well as with many of the
rich Pittsburgh and New York clubmen. The
average dally bag per gun was about CO birds
nnd few canvas backs were reported. Clarence
and .Yale. ,Dolan, ot the Rtttenhouse Club, as
usual, were "high" with over 100 birds on the
rlrst day. Other well-known Phlladelphlans
who were In the sink boxes at Havre do
Grace Included Philip S. P. Randolph, Lyn
ford Riddle, Alexander Van Rensselaer, Ed
ward and Robert Toland, of the Philadelphia
and Rtttenhouse Clubs, and Samuel W, Trex
ler, George Lee Thomson, Mitchell Rosengar
ten and James Speare, Jr.. of tho Racquet
Club. Tho New Tork, millionaire, Roy Ralney,
one of the best shots In the country, and .Rob
ert Watson, ,head of the Golf Association, were
also on the flats. As tho ducking Is only per
mitted on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
according to law most of these gentlemen put
In the alternate days shooting matches on the
beautiful grounds of the Philadelphia Gun Club
on the Delaware.
Robert -M Drayton and Malilon Hutchinson,
of the Rlttenhouse and Racquet Clubs, report
excellent grouse and pheasant shooting up
state and tho members of the exclusive Bora
Gun Club on tho Cohansey Creek obtained
some good bags of ducks and a few woodcock.
Tho decision to hold the Army and Navy
football game on Franklin Field oddly enough
gave a stimulus to two totally different gameB,
namely, court tennis and racquets. It has long
been the custom to hold a series of intercity
matches In these sports on the occasion of the
meeting of tho Army and Navy teams because
nearly all the athletes of the East congregated
here for that event. This year the matches
had been dropped on account of the doubt as
to whether a game yould be held, Now no less
than five visiting teams, all from Boston, will
enter the courts against the pick of Philadel
phia's racquet wlelders. All the matches are
to be at doubles, two being court tennis and
three at racquets. The Philadelphia teams
will be made up as follows: First tennis team,
Hvilllam H. T. Iluhn, who With Jay Gould
holds the doubles championship, and George H.
Brooke, former racquet champion; the 2d
tennis team will be composed of Edgar
Scott and Wilson Potter. The three racquet
teams will be picked from the following well
known players: A. J. Drexel Paul, Robert K.
Cassatt and Leo Ware, of St Loqls, who is
now living in Philadelphia and who holds the
doubles racquets championship with Dwlght
Davis, donor of the famous International ten
nis trophy, known as the Pavla Cup. Messrs.
Bromley, Thomas RIdgway, John Mobr and
Daniel Hutchinson may also figure In the
The bunt clubs of the East suffered another
blow this week when it was found that the
rapid spread of the foot and mouth disease
had 'caused the Maryland authorities to put a
stop to the meet at Farmlngton. Our own
Radnor Hunt Club fell under the can, both
the hounds and horses being placed In quar
antlne. as were those of tbe famous Green
Spring Valley Hunt, of Baltimore, and the
Hit Ridge Kennel Club. This means that no
more hunting may be done by any of these
clubs until the quarantine a lifted, nor can
the members get basic their mounts, which are
now practically interned down In Maryland.
A whole crowd of well-known Phllsdelphlana
went down to attend this meet, Including Mr.
and Mrs. Howard Wanry. Mr. and Mrs. Paul
Denekla Mills. Mr. and Mrs. Antelo Devereux.
