Plan for Sewer System.
The mayor and council of Rockville
and the advisory committee of seven
held a special meeting last evening to
egin preliminary arrangements for the
onstruction of a sewerage system, for
which purpose the legislature recently
. nacted a law authorizing a bohri issue 1
of .."o.?*n.
It was pointed out that the recent ;
legislature passed a law placing the con- i
-?truction of sewerage and water sys
tems under the control of the state board
?.?t' health, in view of which it was
thought best to appoint a committee to ;
take the matter up with the board of!.
health. Mayor Offutt named as mem- r
hers of the committee Robert B. Peter."!
Dr. Ernest L. Bullard and himself, it;
was decided to take no further action ?
at?l the committee is ready to report. !
The Jlrst move will be to employ an
engineer to make survej*s and prepare '
plans and specifications. The mayor
and council and the advisory committee I
have arranged to meet each Friday ?
evening until the work is under way. f

R?n Mulford, jr.. of Cincinnati, chair
man of the Chalmers trophy commission,
lias announced the names of the news
paper men who will serre on this com
mission for the season of 1814. The
Chalmers trophy commission is a jury of
newspaper men, who annually select the
player in both the National and American
leagues, who has been of most value to
his club during the league pennant race,
and to the two men selected by this com
mission Hugh Chalmers of Detroit pre
sents the Chalmers trophy?which each
season consists of two automobiles.
The Chalmers trophy commission for
1914 is as follows: I. E. Sanborn, Chicago
Tribune: Tim Murnane. Boston Globe
Abe lager, Brooklyn Eagle: Jack Ryder
Cincinnati Enquirer: H. G. Salsinger,
Detroit News: Grantland Rice. New York
Mail: Ralph S. Davis. Pittsburgh T?ress
J. C Isaminger. Philadelphia North
American: Sidney C. Keener. St. Louis
Times: J. Ed Grlllo. Washington Star, and
Henry P. Edwards, Cleveland Plain
The present season will be the fifth
consecutive year during which the
Chalmers trophy has been awarded In
major league base ball. Mr. Chalmers
original offer to the national commis
sion in presenting this trophy was that
he would give automobiles to the most
worth while players in the major leagues
for Ave. years. Since this Is the last
season included in the acceptance of the
trophy by the national commission, 1914 !
may terminate the trophy commission
and the awards. I

As was stated exclusively in The Star
last Sunday, the Chevy Chase Club has
decided to continue its plan of ranking
the various pla\*ers in the club, not only
for handicap purposes, but also as one
way of keeping up interest in the net
game during the "off" season. By this
plan the players arc all divided into
clashes, those in the lower classes chal
lenging {.hose in the upper for their po
sitions. Only those in class A arc rated
individually, the .others icing merely
grouped. Tf a player* in a lower clasp
defeats a player in the class just ahead
of his. they exchange positions. T? ose
In class A. who are rated individually,
also change around the same way. but
the last man in this class is the or.lv
one subject to a challenge from a man
in class R The committee has decided j
to start th*' players off this year in the ;
same positions that they occupied when!
the 1iu:t one closed, and so the present
standing is as follow-':

The annual meeting ??f the Bachelors
Uwn Tennis Club will he held tomorrow
night, at which time new officers w ill he !
elected and plans for the ensuing year <
made. The deal for another lease on
the old courts, which has been pending j
for so long, has been closed and the j
Bachelors will use the court in Wood ley ;
Park for another season. The courts ;
are rapidly being gotten in shape and it j
is expected that some of them will be j
ready for use in a few days.
The Chevy Chase Club's tennis team
will meet th^University of Virginia ten
nis team in an interclub match at an
early date.
Harold K. Doyle, who with his brother
"Connie" has won most of the doubles
events in this section of the country for
the last few years, is practicing daily
and expects to enter both the Chevy
Chase and the middle Atlantic champion
ship tournaments. He expects to com
pete in both singles ar.d doubles, but in
the absence of "Brother Connie" it is
not known who he will pair up with in
the latter class. It is possible that
"Freddie" Colston of Baltimore will
come here and compete in the singles
and pair with him in the doubles.
The "Northwest Tennis League. ' com
posed of teams of the smaller tennis
clubs in the District, will hold a meet
ing at an early date and reorganize for
the coming season. Last year the
league was composed of the Argyles
of Saul's Addition, the Inglesi'des of
Ingleside Terrace, the Cleveland Parks S
of Cleveland Park and the Holmeadd of
ICtb and Monroe streets, captained by
J. A. Chamberlain. Charles K. Finkle.
Richmond F. Bingham and Louis 1.
Doyle, respectively. Two other clubs
will possibly be admitted this year?
the Albemarles of 17th and T streets
and the Ontarios of Ontario road. The
last-named club is on the doubtful list,
as it has just lost its courts, and un
less it gets new ones it will combine
with the Tngiesides, who finished last
In 1913, and who need strengthening.
The plan is for the clubs to play
matches alternate Saturday afternoons
between May 15 and July 15, each club
play every other club once at home
and once on its opponent's courts. Last
year a match consisted of three singles i
and four doubles, but it is quite likely
that this season only doubles will be
played, as this will allow more play
ers to get into the game. In case no
other clubs are admitted, the league
will run as a four-club circuit with
the same clubs as last year. A definite
decision will be reached at the meet
ing which will be held within the next
two weeks.
Announcement will be out in a few
days of the Middle Atlantic States cham
pionship tournament, which will be held
on the Columbia Country Club courts
May 30 and following days. Because of
the absence of "Connie" Doyle, there will
be but one challenge round, Miss Eva
Baker and C. T. Chapman defending
their title in the mixed doubles. "Connie"
holds the title in the singles, while he
and Paul J. Treanor are the doubles
champions. His absence, while deeply
regretted, will give some of the other
players in the District an excellent chance
to prove their worth. R. F. James of
Saratoga Springs, N. Y., and Harold E.
Doyle each have two legs on the trophy,
and a win for either this year will make
it become their permanent property. ? It
is not known at this time whether James
will be here for the event or not.
The tennis committee at Clftvy Chase
has announced that the winner of the
Navy cup In this year's closed tourna
ment will have to play through the tour
nament in 1915, and cannot stand out as
has been the practice in the past. This
cup, donated to the club by former Sec
retary of the Navy Newberry, has been
in competition seven times, and, in ad
dition to this year's winner, has been
won by Ralph W. Hills, E. P. Gros
venor. J. Upshur Moorhead, Lee Mc
Clung. J. Upshur Moorhead and Spencer
Gordon in the orde:- named. This plan of
making the champion play through the
events was adopted by the National
Lawn Tennis Association last year, and
a? trophies are won and new ones put
up for competition is gradually being
adopted by tournaments throughout the
The "Old Dominion" open invitation
tournament will be held this year on the
courts of the Country Club of Virginia
beginning June 1, and many local play
ers expect to enter it.
It looks very much as if the Chevy
Chase Club's team has picked up a "dia
mond in the rough" in J. Ballard Moore,
the youngster who won this year's closed
tournament. Any one who heats such
men as Ralph W. 1 fills. Cuthbert Brown
and Upshur Moorbead is more than an
ordinary player. Moore, who is a com
parative you!i?*ter, has been playing the
game only a short time and his jump to
the fore was certainly a quick one, as he
did trot show anything at all in his last
tournament?the District championship
one which was played on the Bachelors'
courts last fall. He has been playing a
great deal with "Connie" Doyle since, and
this is probably largely responsible for
his improved game. If he-improves as
much next year as he has this, he un
doubtedly ill rank with the best in the
District in a short time.
The tournament Jfrr the southern cham
pionship will be held May 2T?. to ."O this
year under the auspices of the New < >r
ieans Lawn Tennis Club. Tri the men's
singles a new cup will be put up for com
petition. as in*. Thornton of Atlanta won
it for the third time last year. The;
Doyles have won the doubles cup twice. '
but will be unable to compete in next j
month's event because of the absence of
C. B. Doyle. The winners of the dou
bles are entitled to "nter the western
doubles championship and will go to Chi
cago for this tournament at the expense
of "the New Orleans Club.

CHAItLOTTE^VlLLK. Va.. April 2."?.
At a meeting of the General Athletic |
Association. "Of the Cniversity of A ir- ;
ginia this afternoon the following stu
dents were elected to serve on the board
for the year 1914-15: G. F. Thornhill.
John Cronly, Preston Lane and M. S.
Thornhill is manager of this year's
base ball team and ? one of the most
popular men in college.
Cronly is captain of the Virginia track
team and one of the best hurdlers in
the country, while Fitchett is the other
member, having taken an active part in
athletics. He has been a member of the
base ball teem for the past four years.
Buck Mayer and flardy Todd of the
foot ball team were the only other can
didates nominated, and the vote for the
fourth member was close.
The new members will go into office
May 0 but have not as yet announced
their policy for the future. There was
a decided lack of interest in the elec
tion, in comparison with past years,
probably due to the fact that the mem
bers were not elected to offices as here
tofore. but only to the board, the officers
to be appointed by the board itself.

R. F. D. No. 1. Pocahontas, Tenn.?
"I took something resembling ringworm
and t-houg&t it would soon get well but it
just kept spreading until it
began to look serious. It
first appeared on my face a*
a small spot itching and burn
ing and it gradually spread
until it got over my face and
head. Wherever it went it
would leave the skin with
-white scales. I w^s compelled
ta scratch and that irritated
the skin. My hair fell out gradually and
looked dead. I was disfigured very much
and I certainly got tired of people asking me
what was the matter with my face. 1 lost
a good many nights' sleep. The disease
got so far along it didn't look like ringworm.
This frightened me. They said it was bar
ber's itch.
was advised to use which
would stop It, but on the outside of the
ring it would soon appear again leaving the
sldn rough and scaly. I was given treat
ment but it did not do any good. Then I
began using Cuticura Soap and Ointment,
washing with the Cuticura Soap then ap
plying th? Cuticura Ointment three and four
times a day and at night. In a little less
than two weeks I was cured of that skin
trouble." (Signed) W. H. Nail, June 3,1913.

The only fly in the ointment was j

she was slow, clumsy and her waiting

faults, she insisted on keeping her

Mv. Cyril Maude tells the following j
story about his old friend W. S. Penlev.
Penley was stopping at - country
house tn .Brittany, and the morning
after his arrival, finding no looking
glass in his room, rang the bell.
"Apportez-moi un eheval." he said to
the maid who answered it.
The maid, choking with laughter, ran
down to her master.
"Monsieur." she cried, "your friend
who arrived last night is mad. He has
