The Williston Tennis tournament
which started Tuesday afternoon
proved to be a very successful one and
Williston people had a chance to see
some very good tennis. The finals in
doubles was played yesterday after
noon between Dr. Blatherwick and
Dr. Rogers and Elsworth and Cor
bett of this city. The former team
won, Elsworth and Corbett taking the
first set and Blatherwick and Rogers
the next three.
The finals in singles which was
played this morning was by far the
best tennis ever seen in the city. The
match was between Dr. Blatherwick
of Van Hook, who for three years
straight, won the state championship,
and Alex Drapes of this city. Mr.
Drapes had only been on the courts
three times previous to this tourna
ment and put up some very fine tennis.
Dr. Blatherwick won the match. The
first two sets went to Drapes and the
next three to the doctor. The score
was 5-7, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4.
In the doubles there were two oth
er very good matches. Drapes and
Harding playing Blatherwick and
Rogers put up some very good tennis.
They took the first set 2-6 and lost
the next two.
The hardest double match was be
tween White and Mclntyre of Don
nybrook and Elsworth and* Corbett of
Williston. Forty eight games were
played in this match,'Corbett and Els
worth winning, 7-5, 10-12, 8-6.
The surprise of the tournament was
the tennis put up by Mr. Drapes. He
played a wonderful game considering
the amount of practice he had and
he is sure to make them all go some
next season.
Ends Tomorrow
The Canning demonstration thathas
been in session for the' past three
days will end tomorrow night. This
demonstration is in charge of the
Woman's National Council of Defence
and is being held in the building just
north of Pasonault's Studio on Main
Street. The work is being conducted
by Mrs. G. M. Holland, County Food
Chairman and Mrs. Dr. MacManus
assisted by women from the country
surrounding Williston. They have
equipment sufficient for the canning
of 200 quarts of vegetables during
an afternoon. Tomorrow afternoon
is set aside for the women of the sec
ond ward of Williston and any other
women who wish to bring vegetables
to be canned. Any kind of vegetables
will be canned and ail they ask of
the women is that they bring the
vegeables, a dish pan, parring knife,
dish towel and the cans for the vege
tables and stay and assist with the
canning of their vegetables. Any
amount may be brought and this is
a mighty fine chance and a cheap one
for the women of Williston to get
their green vegetables canned for
next winters use and also learn how
£his canning is done in the right way.
During the past few days of the dem
onstration a great deal of -fine work
has been done but more of it could
have been handled had the women
turned out.
Bring any green vegetables such
as green corn on the cob, beans, peas,
cauliflower, swiss chard, beets, etc.
These vegetables will taste mighty
fine next winter and every family
should have their supply.

dell was in charge of this work and
was assisted by the physicians of the
city and several other Www belong
ing to the local council.
Many of the children
to be all 0. K. physically wMle oth
ers were found with ailments of which
their parents were not aware of. Two
cards were filled out for each child,
one which was given to the parents
and the other sent into headquarters
at Washington. The object of this
examination was to ascertain the ail
ment of all the children of the com
munity and correct them while they
were young. The examination was
given throughout the country by the
Council of Defence free of charge
and will no doubt have a great deal
to do with the development of a strong

terman, Hagen and MacManus.
