Tennis history is benif; made and there

as far in the tennis art as May

May, more than any other of the
Buttons, is a net player of no mean
M.l ay, and although she enjoys par
ticularly to stand In nind the back line
and pass her opponent with that long
swinging stroke for which she is noted,
nt times she will come toward the
speedier section of tht> court and bang
the fast ones with the best of them.
In some points, perhaps, the Hotch
klss style of play Is different from the
Sutton variety. As :> whole, however,
the two girls play the .same same, the
latter using more of a reverse tUvist
and top to her strokes, while .Miss
tlkiss relies In the tight places on
a cut stroke. The point of greatest
.similarity between tlie two players is
in their angle shots, both excelling at
this department of the game and us
ing the play frequently, in the mat
ter of speed neither has the advantage.
The piece de resistance is scheduled to i
begin at 3 o'clock.
Mt. Washington tennis already has

Mrs. Holmes' Story Thrills Two
Audiences at the Grand—The
Week's Playbills
"Lena P.iv< re" is one of the old-fash
ion, -j melodramas which retain a
I strong- hold upon the affections of
! playgoers. The presentation of the
dramatization of Mrs. Holmes' inter
esting novel, given by the King com
pany at the Grand opera house yester
day, was such as to make that hoH
firmer In every respect. The story of
the deserted girl, her trials and her
triumphs will never grow older, for It
j in one filled with human interest from
j first to last. In the end Lena Rivera
comes into her own. She is acknowl
: c Iged by her father, who Is more or
Ii ss of a coward, for financial reasons.
I The mystery of her birth and her life
i is cleared up and she gains back the
I love of the man she was intended from
the first to marry.
There are dozens of situations which
thrill rind lines which make laughter
peal forth or tears b( irt. "Lena Riv
ers," old as it is and impossible i:i con
struction from a modern standpoint, Is
still worth while, and will be enjoyi i
to the fullest by those who like deep
dyed villains, women who are devoid
of -womanly sympathy, spotless hero
ines, low comedians, etc., etc., as the
dramatis persi nae of a story.
Mr. Kind's stage effects are particu
larly worthy. His first act, a scene in
a barnyard, and the last Bettlngr, show
Ing the exterior of a country place, ar
natural and beautiful.
Players concerned in the present
tion of "Lena Rivers" do excellei
work. Myrtle Vane's oharnetorizntio
of Lena Rivi rs is charming. Mis
V im looks sweetly Ingenue and make
the character appealing in every re
Bpect. Charli i King as Harry Qrahai
is fair. Godfrey Mathews as th
sweetheart, Durward Tjeiinnnt, is natu
ml and effective. Auda Due and Grac
Rauworth as the human Icicles .1" well
In their parts. Frank Bonner, Edmund
Murphy and J. F. McDonald each are
pleasing 1.

'Maud' Resents Efforts to Save
Carnations and Demolishes
Popcorn Stand
A long-eared mule with an appetite
for flowers of the carnation variety
and a side kick for popcorn stands
put two small business places in South
Broadway out of commission yester
day and caused its master, Jacob Gold
stein, to be arrested on v charge of
disturbing the peace.
Goldstein, who buys old clothes, had
only owned the mule twenty-four
hours when it landed him in jail. He
secured her in trade for an old horse.
yesterday he took "Maud" down
Broadway for a llnal tryout. She
stepped high and wasn't afraid of au
tomobiles. Proud of his trade Gold
left his animal at the. curbstone
while he went in search of a friend.
"Maud" spied a flower stand bedecked
in red and white carnations. With an
eye to the beautiful and during the
absence of the proprietor she made a
meal ol the carnations. Busy Broad
way paused in wonder.
Pedro Espanoza, the proprietor of a
nearby popcorn emporium on wheels,
was the fust to resent her intrusion
on his neighbor's st'.ek in trade.
"Maud" resented the way he went
about it. She wheeled suddenly
around and planted a vicious kick with
her hind hoof on Espanoza's little pop
corn wagon and it popped, corn and
all, into the street. While newsboys
were scrambling fur the plunder the
crowd howled and Espanoza tore his
hair. Goldstein arrived and was ar
rested. A fat policeman drovo )
jail behind "Maud." At police head
quarters Goldstein offered to
his indebtedness to th< flower ami pop
corn vendurs by sacrificing "Maud."
Both Espanoza and v little Greek, who
owned the Bowers, refused to be paci
fied and will appear in the police court
today to enforce a cash settlement.
Frank Elisado Locked Up in City

the Show
Frank Elisado, a 14-year-old Mexi
can buy, with a bit of pepper, broke
up a moving picture show in South
.Main street yesterday and Is in jail
charged With disturbing the peace.
The boy entered tho theater at a
time when it was crowded to capacity.
Then litttle Elisado, with no thought
of the consequences, lot go with the
pepper. An old man in the front row
sneezed. A young woman in the or
chestra followed him with a soft
"ker chew." Then an Irishman Kuf
fawed In tho center of the house and
Elisado's fun began. From every part
pf tho house came sneezes bis and
■null and gradually the audi
ence dwindled until only tho orchestra
and the management .spoke between
sneezes. In the meantime suspicion
centered on the Mexican youth. ]lln
paper lia^ floured aa evidence. Jle
was collared and delivered into the
Custody of a big policeman who
sneezed at the evidence. The boy was
lodged in tho detention ward of the
county Jail.

Another pace In this Issue shows
that a vote total of 255,827 is leading
fi the $3380 ICnox tourabout—second
capital prize in The Herald's $25,000
voting contest.
At first glance two hundred and a
half thousand votes might seem a
rather "sizey" total, but when the real
hustler stops to do a bit of figuring
it dwindles down to proportions that
are anything but imposing.
Just a few days ago it was an
nounced that an extra club bonus of
500 votes would be given until 10
o'clock Saturday night, Juno 4. These
500 extra votes with the regular vote
of 170 per dollar give every dollar
in club amounts a voting power of
liT'i votes.
It is just as easy securing clubs as
it is to secure and turn In subscrip
tions or classified coupon book certifi
cates singly. A subscription club is ten
n"w subscriptions and a classified club
five voting certificates for classified
coupon books. When ten now subscrip
tions or classified certiflcatps are
turned in at one time the amounts
covering them in "club" amounts and
f.OO extra votes are allowed on each
dollar in the club.
The great benefits enjoyed by turn-
Ing subscirptions and classified coupon
certificates can best be seen by the
following examples:
A club of ten new yearly subscriptions
I will give you 8500 regular votes on the
I club of ten. THE EXTRA CLUB
I will be 500 on each dollar, anil 25.000 on
' the club of new yearly subscriptions,
innking a total vote on the club of
I 33,500 votes.
A club of ton new six months' sub
scriptions will give you 4(580 regular
votes on the club of ten. THE EX
IOD ONLY will be 500 votes on each
dollar, or 13,750 club votes on the club
of ten new six months' subscriptions,
making a total vote on the club of
18,430 votes.
A club of ten new three months' sub
scriptions will give you 2550 regular
votes on the club of ten. THE EX
IOD only will be 7500 club votes on
the club of ten new three months' sud
tcrlptiom, making a total vote on the
club of 10,050 votes.
A club of five classified £.dvertlslng
coupon books will give you 3000 regu
lar votes on the club of five. THE EX
ONLY Will be 10,000 club votes on the
club of five classified advertising: books,
making a total vote on the club of
13,000 votes.
Anyone wishing to take advantage
of the extra-olub-vote offer must act
quickly as the offer will end at 10
p. m. June 4. With such small totals
leading for rich prizes there is every
reason for a real hustler insuring suc
cess during the remaining days of the
special offer. It's your one oppor
tunity—it's entirely up to you to
grasp it.
