Today most players have taken a five! There was the famous match when Dr. Knight was five down and six to go, to young Tom Hooker, and pulled it out of the fire, only to lose to Tom on the 19th hole. There are the deer and does frequently seen on the course, which keep it near to nature's heart; and who will ever forget the little fox that leaped out on the third and played impishly with Captain Spof ford's ball. It is a course full of romance, and occasionally even a match has been made here, that is usually credited to heaven. t tT 1 m . m mm -l see oeiore me the swinging shield of the Duke of Norfolk, adorn ed with his coat of arms. But the genius loci of the links is not his grace, but one whose bounty exceeds the wealth of all 'the Howards, and whose personality is worth a hundred coats of arms. Without her fore thought and largesse these downs wouia not De, and m token oi our fealty and gratitude to her ladyship, I suggest that we raise all hands up, hands with the heart in it. (Enthu siastically done.) "Ths tournament has been a glor ious success, thanks to a painstaking committee, headed by Dr. Tanner, who have spared no effort to enter tain us. They have even furnished caddies to the competing team, and a bountiful lunch, where it was ob served that everything putted upon the table found its way into the hole. It is a pleasure to us all to see Cap tain Spofford on the course, whose courtesy and skill nave so long adorned it. The labor and equity of the handicap committee are beyond praise, for their problem is one from which Gabriel himself would shrink. The successes have gone to the right ones in all fairness, particularly the Eldridge cup, which has been taken out of that safety deposit vault, the Litchfield jail, and will now glisten in the sunshine of Norfolk. And as one of the opposing team, I can heartily say, 'Tis better to have played and lost, than never to have i played at all.' "And so let us go to the 19th hole. May all your drives be far and sure. May all your putts go down." T Pi-. -.? ".t'KMjt Moons. iiy t'!:w.t'!s ihnt have no moons Hiv riios-- nonrest tlii? sun, namely Tuercury nnd Venus.
