GOLF DESCRIBED BY AN EXPERT t'bomas Bendelow Declares That It Is a Royal Sport. ITS HISTORY IS DWELT UPON In 1 175 the Scottish Parliament Do t !arcd Against It Because It Was Interfering with the Practice of Archery-Hapid Spread of the Game Since Its Introduction Into Tbie v Countr)Dcrription of the Local Links. wninw nrlnt an article of golf flora the pen of Thomas Bendelow, the well known expert In that game which will be of Interest to those de siring Information on that popular some. Mr. Bendelow ts a Scot, who having learned the came In his in fancy knows Its every detail. H laid out the links at the country club house and Instructed the members of the rlub in the mysteries of the game. At present Mr. Bendelow Is residing in New York. His article Is as follows: "Three or four years atro there was introduced Into America a game which looked at from every side possible to the uninitiated promised to have M hard an uphill fight for recognition us did the Knglish game of cricket ' when first Introduced into this coun u y. The game was termed golf, or more properly "gotl," the letter "1" tiling silent as In calf, and pronounced in the vernacular of the land from which it emanates 'gowff.' Contrary to all expectations, however, the game has become so popular In this country that it promises to outrank In favor the national game of base ball. "Golf has for many centuries been the national game of Scotland and is nt present the most fashionable name in England and America. No same stirs a keener enthusiasm in its votaries, and few people Who have ver really given the game a fair trial will be found to deny Its extreme fas cination. It is a manly and health ful recreation, bringing Into play as it does, a constant exercise of brain .inns and legs. It can be played fast or slow at pleasure, thus equally adapting Itself to the overflowing ex uberance of youth, the matured and tempered strength of manhood, and to the gentle decays of age. "It is uncertain at what date golf was introduced in Scotland, but in 1457 the Scotlsh parliament 'decreted and ordained that golf be utterly cry It down and nocht uslt,' It having be come a serious menace to the then more Important study and practice of archery. Again in 1491 a final and angry fulmination was issued which carried with it a tine of forty shillings, it run this: 'Foteball and golfe for bidden. Item, it is statut and or dainit that in nae place of the realme there be uslt foteball, golfe or other sik unprofitable sportls, under the pain i if fourtle shillings.' This was an edict of James IV, and it ts an evidence of the extreme fascination of the game that very shortly after James IV him self figures prominently In the old golfing records as a liberal patron of the game. GOLF CLUBS EVERYWHERE. "Today we have golf clubs nearly all over the world as an evidence of Its xreat popularity. Golf clubs of long standing exist in Bombay, Calcutta, Australia, South America, Canada, and in the United States. One can form some slight idea how the game has 'caught on' in America when it Is said that today there are over 400 clubs in existence here, and every week Is adding to the already large list, and it Is only a question of time when no doubt international matches will be held to decide the Question of supre macy. "As a proof that tt ts no mere fad one has only got to look at the amount of money expended in the construction of links for the pursuance of the game, many club's expense In that one direc tion running well Into five figures. Ardesley Casino, on the Hudson, cost over $50,000 to put It in shape for play ing, let alone cost of club house and other necessary equipments. It is all the rage. One cannot go twenty miles into the country nowadays without seeing evidences of the golf fiend In some shape or other. You find him In the street car. In the restaurant at the seashore, in the mountains, in fact everywhere. In any large city you cannot walk two blocks ere you meet him arrayed in all the splendour il the latest importation in golfing cos tume, bag with clubs slung over his shoulder, and with that 'break the record' expression on his countenance which Is so common among golferj. If you chance to have a speaking ac quaintance with him, all the worse, as it means you have to listen to nothing but Jargon about foozled drives, schlafted, brassy and Iron shots, which terms are so much Greek to the ordin ary mortal, "County clubs have likewise caught the golf fever, and today there Is not a country club of any note, which can not boast of a nine-hole or an eighteen hole golf course, and of Its large num ber of votaries. And Scranton Is In no wise behind. Today It has as sporty a nine hole course as can be found-In any part of the country, the natural loca tion of the ground being all that could be desired for Indulging In the' royal sport, abounding as It does with creoks and bunkers, and provided In addition with a fair supply of gorse and brush; .all of which constitute the main haz ards of the game, in the avoidance of which skill ts especially shown, and , without a fair provision of these no golfing links or green can be held to approach the ideal standard. "The length of the entire course is something over 2,200 yards, and the holes have , been named as follows: 1, The Vista; 2, Dead Easy; 3, Hard Luck: 4, Red Top: 6. Btralghaway: 6. The Hollow; 7. The Lottery; 8, Pine Hill: and , Bunker Hill. No two holes are the same, thus giving players a better chance of acquiring a knowledge of the game in an its fullness, and like wise enabling them to hold their end up in match play with the best of the company. "A (rent deal of enthusiasm exists If If IP CHRISTIAN, among the club members both ladies and gentlemen - turning out in large . numbers in Dleaslna costumes, fore most among whom may be mentioned Mrs. H.

A little said on how the game Is played may not be amiss here. Golf may be practiced on any good stretch of meadow land where the graes is not too rank, but the ground best suited for the purpose is a reach of undulat ing country, covered with a short crisp turf occasionally broken up by sand holes or bunkers, and provided In ad dition with a fair amount of gorse or brush. The course should not be less than 2.000 yards, and Includes nine holes, which may be placed according to the "lie" of the ground at any dis tance from 100 to S00 yards apart and placed In such position that collision between outgoing and Incoming play ers will be avoided. "These holes are 4Vi Inches In diame ter and not less than 4 Inches In depth, and usually situated In the centre of the putting green, which should be as large as possible. The location of the hole on the putting green Is generally designated with the number of the hole, which marking disc or flag requires to be taken out when players approach the green and replaced after scoring. Another factor of great importance In the game Is the teeing ground, that is ( the name given to the point from which j the player strikes the ball in playing j for each hole. It Is generally a raised dnls of earth or clay, filled Inside a frame, and laid at right angles to the Duttine green about to be played for. "The ball used for the game Is made of guttapercha, well seasoned. It U about inches in diameter ana may weigh from 26 to 28 pennywelgths. Var ious kinds of clubs are used In the game, both wood and Iron, chief of which are, the driver, brsssey, deck, lofting Iron, masshey and putter. "The game is played by two persons, or by four (two a side), plavlng alter nately. It may also be played by thre? or more persons each playing his own ball. The game commences by each party playing off a ball from the te toward the first. (The one entitled to D ay first Is usually settled by the toss of a coin, although the courtesy of starting first Is generally granted to older members of the club.) The hole Is won by the player who holes out (I. e. gets his ball Into the hole) In the fewest number of strokes, tre mode of reck oning being made by the terms odd and like, one more, two more, etc. HOW TO DRIVE THE BALL. 'After the tee shot, where the player has the privilege of setting his ball up on a little mound of sand to faciliate his better driving It, he must play his ball strictly from its place as It hap pens to be. In sand, bunker, or else where, and not touch It again until he picks It out of the first hole, prepara tory to teeing It again to drive to the second hole, and so on until he ha gone around the course. The ball must at all times be fairly hit at, and spoon ing or pushing the ball from any posi tion means the loss of the hole being played for. "A player can take his ball out of any bunker by losing two strokes, or out of any unplayable place not a bunker by losing one stroke. A game consists of IS holes, requiring the player to play around a nine hole course twice, and the player winning the greatest num ber of holes on the round wins the game or If in medal play, the one doing the course In the fewest number of strokes. "As a means of relaxation, both for body and mind there ts no game like it, and I only hope that It will become more and more popular among the class of people who have the capacity to en- Joy It." OUR GOLFERS AT WILKES-BARRE They Were Defeated in the First Gome of the Series. "A big and Jolly party of the Scranton Country club arrived in town at 1 o'clock today to see a match between their favorites and the team represen tatives of the Wyoming Country Club of this city," says Saturday's Wllkes Barre Evening Leader. "There has been a good deal of anticipation about the match and the several hundred members of both clubs and several hun dred friends of each party have been making it a personal matter of deepest interest. "The Scranton team consisting of Messrs. Brooks, Simpson, Watklns, Ful ler, Sanderson, arrived here at 9 this morning and went directly to the links of the Wllkes-Barre club for practice. They worked hard all the morning and returned to town at noon for dinner at the Westmoreland where they were en tertained by the Wilkes-Barre golfers. The main body of the Scranton sym pathizers took a special car on the Delaware and Hudson at Scranton and they were met at the Lehigh Valley station by L. B. Jones and others, rep resenting the Wllkes-Barre club. A special car on the Traction company's system was In watting at the station and the party went at once to the club grounds. The tournament was set for 1.30, but It was some minutes after that hour when the players started off the first tee. The Wyoming club players were: H. M. Harding. W. E. Woodruff, W.D. Johnson. Charles Loveland, Fred Hillman and John A. Turner. After the match tea was served at the club house by the following: Mew dames Thomas Graeme, I. P. Hand, Walter P. Gaston, L. S. Ryman, W. A.

Hill, of Lebanon, Ind., says: "My wife had Intlamatory rheumatism In every muscle and Joint her suffering was terrible and her body and face were swollen almost be yond recognition; had been in bed for six weeks ana naa eignt physicians but received no benefit until she tried the Mystic Cure for Rheumatism. It gave Immediate relief and she was able to walk about In three days. I am sure It saved her life." Sold by Carl Lorenz, druggist, Scranton, 418 Lackawanna avenue. BOXING BOUTS . AT MUSIC HALL Annual Tonrnamsnt of Excelsior Atb letlc Club Held Tbere. WILLISCHEK AND JOHN TI0HE MKT Extra Round Required Before a De cision Was GiveaCaptaia Durkin and Anthony Gordon Had a Very Lively "Friendly" SettoA Tren ton Bantam Wo from a Philadel phia AntagonitOne Bout Stopped II y the Referee. The boxing tournament at Music Hall Satuiday night under the auspices of the Excelsior Athletic club was wit nessed by not more than 250 persons. General satisfaction was expressed at the exhibition provided, and it was the opinion of many that the event was one of the most successful yet con ducted by the Excelsiors. Four boxing bouts were on the pro gramme besides two bug-punching ex hibitions. One of the bouts descended to the level of brutality before it was In operation a minute, but the referee promptly put an end to It and sent the sluggers off the stage. The other bouts were first-class. P. J. Murphy was referee; James J. Qulnnan and John T. Brown, Judges; James J. Coleman, timekeeper, and Joseph McNally, president of the Club, announcer. It was nearly 0 o'clock be fore the exercises begun. P. R. McGowan, of Providence, a heavy weight member of the club, and a muscular well built' fellow, punched the tag for ten minutes and won ap plause. Joe WUlischek, of Phllid 1 phia, the clever light weight who is always a favorite here, followed with a bag punching exhibition and dis played his quickness. TWO OLD-TIME RIVALS. Whqn Announcer McNally stated that the first bout would be between Captain P. J. Durkln and Anthony Gordon, of the Excelsiors, there was not very much enthusiasm. The spec tators took It for granted that this was to be a very tame and friendly ex hibition. But It was nothing of the sort. From beginning to end It con sisted of the hardest and hottest style of scientific boxing. There was no clinching. The men stood at arm's length and delivered and took blows with great regularity. Gordon was heavier, bigger and In better condition, but he had nothing to spare when time was called in the last round, if tne captain were In trim Gordon wou'.d have a top match. They have been ri vals for a long time, although In a friendly spirit, and when the Judges decided In favor of Gordon, the canfln very gracefully accepted the decision. The second bout was between John McKenna, of Trenton, and John Youngs, of Philadelphia, two bantam weights. McKenna had the advantage of heighth and reach and he needed both. Youngs is a terrific hitter for a little fellow. Honors were even until the third round, when the Trentonlte put on extra steam and he kept the Fhlladelphian busy dodging blows. The Judges agreed upon McKenna as the winner. before the bout McKenna made some remarks about liking to go in against Wlllischeck, but after he finished with Youngs he changed his mind, for he had his hands full In beating him and he was not anxious for any further en gagements that night. THE BOUT THAT WAS STOPPED. Billy Madison and Patsy Gibbons were the next two on the boards. This was the bout the referee stopped. Gib bons is from Pittston. He ts the one that was up against John Tight at the tournament two weeks ago Saturday night when Judge and Leonard met and were parted. Madison and Gib bons had been at it before and there was fire in each one's eyes when they entered the ring. They went at it like tigers and In a Jiffy both were rolling on the floor. The referee told them that was not the way to box and warned them to fight squarely or he would order them off. They lurid no heed to him but went at. it again as fierce as ever, and then he separated them and sent them out of the ring. They glared at each other and uttered hard names as they were retiring Into the wings of the stage, and it looked as if they might have it out rough and tumble. Just before Madison and Gibbons came together Mr. McNally announced that It would be the last bout, as there was no one to meet Joe WUlis chek. He said the club had made every effort to get a man to box Joe but thought the latter was willing to meet any man even In the 135-pound class, there was no amateur In Scran ton with heart enough to come for ward. "What's the matter with Tighe?" came in loud chorus from the. specta tors. . f TIGHE TO THE RESCUE. "I'll see If that can be arranged," said he, and after a few minutes' con sultation with Tighe and WUlischek he came back and announced that they were agreed. Accordingly the two boxers came to gether. WUlischek gave as fine an ex hibition of boxing as anyf one could wish to see. He landed on Tighe sev eral times without getting anything In return, but Tighe did not hit him once without receiving payment Immediate ly. At the end of the third round the Judges disagreed in their decision. Mr. Qulnnan thought Tighe was the win ner, and Mr. Brown decided in favor of WUlischek. An extra round was the result. In which Tighe adopted rushing tactics and by virtue of his superior strength In pushing WUlischek to the ropes he had an unequal ndvantase and Inflict ed more blows. The extra round threw the decision Into the hands of the referee alone, and he named Tighe as the winner. WUlischek won the prize In the IK pound bout by default because there was no one to meet him. FOOT BALL SATURDAY. Carlisle Indians Give Yale Boys a Lively Battle'-Pennsyivan'a Defeated by LafayetteAt Oilier Places. New York, Oct. 23. The Rluemen of Yale and the Tied men of Carlisle met on Manhattan field yesterday. It was a furious battle and when It was all over the score was 12 to 6 In favor of Yale, but It should -have been 12 to 12 and would have been, allowing that an easy gcal would be kicked, had not the referee. W. O. Hickok, the Yaleslan weight thrower, made a mistake. It was like this: Cayou got the ball on a fumble five minutes after play had started and with a beautiful run of 75 yards scored a touchdown from which a goal was kicked. Yale nerved up and by the hardest kind of playing made two touchdowns and goals. The second half bgnn witn tne Yale' pretty well winder! and the In dians looking and acting as If they had been playing marbles. The ball was carried up and down the field first by one and then the other until towards the close of the half when Jameson broke out a pile-up with the ball under his arm and covered forty yards of clear field for a touchdown. However the refereee'S whistle had blown Just as he started for Yale's conl line and he had to come back. Referee Hickok admitted his error. "I thought," said he to Captain Pierce, "that your wedge had stepped whan I blew the whistle for a cessation of play. Just as I blew It Jameson brok.e through with the ball. I am sorry but the best thing you can do is go on and play." The Indians were heavier and stronger. They had the better line. They were better trained. The effort that prac tically exhausted Yale were nothing to them. It was as easy as a game of ten nis, and if another period of twenty five minute had been played. It Is al most certain that the Redman would have won. V. Of P. Defeated by Lafayette. Philadelphia, Oct. 25. Over 13,000 peo ple saw Pennsy defeated by Lafayette on Franklin field yesterday by a score of 6 to 4. Pennsylvania outplayed the men from Easton but was lax at times and this laxity was taken advantage of by the opponents. Several times, af ter carrying the ball almost to Lafay ette's line, they would lose it on a fum ble. Finally they held the ball, and UfTenhelmer was pushed through the centre for a touchdown. The kick out was a failure, and no more scoring was done in the half. Pennsylvania's de fence was magnificent, and only once did Lafayette make the necessary five yards. The visitors fooled the Quakers on a fake pass and Barclay went around the right end to Pennsylvania's three-yard line. On the line-up Barclay went around the Quakers' left end for a touchdown, from which he easily kicked a goal. The Quakers seemed stunned by the suddenness of the thing, and for the short remaining time played like wooden men. When the game ended the ball was on Pennsylvania's twenty yard line. While Lafayette deserved her victory for taking advantage of a poor play. Pennsylvania outplayed the Eastoalans and kept the ball In their territorycar ly all the time. For Pennsylvania Gil bert played a fine game at left half back, and on the defence the whole Quaker, line was impregnable. Wood ruffs fumbles and Mlnds's poor bunt ing were costly. Lafayette was wlth otie the services of Captain Walbrldge, v. ho Is sick. Barclay playea nis usual brilliant game at left half back, and th rlnnt Rhinehart was a tower of strength In blocking, breaking through. and tackling. Hnrvar I 13, Cornell 4. Tthnca. N. Y.. Oct. 25. In a hard fought game Saturday Harvard de feated Cornell by a score or is to . There were no goals, the high wind causing the misses. Five of Harvard's points were due to a beautiful drop kick from the field by Brown. He also made the two touchdowns. The game was replete with kicks and returns the strong and encouraging this kind of play. Outside of the punting Cornell played Just as good if not better ball than Harvard. On Other Fields.
