This Gibbons-McFarland battle
looks like a good chance for the fan
inclined to wager to keep his money
in his pocket, with the flap buttoned
down. Too many conflicting stories
are coming out of New York.
From some experts we get the hot
tip that Gibbons is having a desperate
time getting in condition. He is said
A to be surly because things are going
badly. His speed is absent and he
can't hit for shucks. And these same
experts come along with a yarn that
Packey is in the best condition of his
life and ready to make Gibbons look
Thep up steps another expert and

fastest man he ever saw, primed
for a dizzy pace, and says McFarland
is7 worried over the outcome of the
It all depends on the paper you

Mrs. W. A. Gavin vs. Miss E. Pearce
and Miss Alexa Stirling vs. Mrs. C.
H. Vanderbeck are the semi-final
cards for the woman's national golf
tourney at Onwentsia today. Miss
Pearce is the only Chicagoan, and an
international flavor is given by Mrs.
Gavin, who comes from England.
A Miss Pearce surprised the gallery by
defeating Mrs. Barlow. Mrs. Bei
feld was ousted by Mrs. Vanderbeck
in the best -golf of the meet Mrs.
Vanderbeck had a medal card of 84.
