tectives and the polioi of many citie-i
havo looked for nin- years, after be
ing aiTcstcil here, on a charge of for

iissutance of a J. liufu-s Wallin'.-ford,
"They can't heat me," and smilingly
lidded: "They call it torgery, but i
have the right to sign my partner's
name and ct the money."
This man with n Walliugfoid liku
farcer is W. J. Williams, lie has been
taken to i'hiladelphia for trial. St.
Paul, Berkeley, Minneapolis, l.Htbttli
smd I'.rooklyn also tried to get, Will
iams when liny heard ho had been
arrt-strd. When the detective looked
over Williams, be had that Wallin-,-ford-like
appearance he looked nni
acted like a prosperous business man.
Detect iv o Chief Jackson I bought, he
had a lough job on hand, but Will
iams, looking him in the eye, said:
"Let's get down to brass tacks. .No
use asking a long string of qm :-tiuii,-.
1 am the man you want, and 1 am
willing to go without reiiuisiliou pa

mo as such.''
lie declined to sleep with the other
prisoners, and paid for the privilege,
of .sleeping in a detective's room and
for the guard who watched while bo
slept.
Williams, according to the i barges,
is a one-game man. This snipe, is
.aid by the detectives to have Iceii
about as follows: Williams would
adveitire in a newspaper for a part
ner with ?Tuu capital, lie would re
ceive many replies, and upon landing
a "partner," would propose, starting a
lood product plant. He claimed in
have the formula for a substitutu foi
Ihe white of an egg. According to
Williams, he all but started ega
tat lories in about 2U cities. The de
tectives say that, after forming a
partnership, Williams would draw all
the partner's money from tho bank
ami disappear. Williams seemed to
! think thia a perfectly safe operation.
Williams was caught when an old
fienison citizen "tell" for ihe egg food
proposition and arranged to come
hero and put up fijuii. The cltizeu
vent to his banker to get the money.
Hot the banker had read in a bankers'
journal of a similar egg proposition.
There were the initials "W. J."
Williams had preserved the initials,
which he says are his own, in ever,
case. The banker wanted his cus
tomer, Matthew Sehwuliu.
A trap vvns prepared. ScUvvalm
liolilied Williams to meet him here
Hiie ufu-rnooii. Instead of Suhwalm,
however, four detucUvca inert Will
iaius, ami arrested him.
Williams is I", but would pass lor

office he was faultlessly dressed, J II.-
trousers were creased and he was
clean shaven. '
Specific charges against hint in
volve alleged swindling lo the amount
of several thousand dollars. In Berk
eley he Is chatged with having raised
a ?l check to ?fm) and with having
cached a iu check at. a, bank there
on a lumber company that had never
existed. Uut detectives fay Iho "eg,,
plant" was his favorite "game," and
in his suit case was a lot of letter'-,
from "partners." The police here say
it. Is an egg deal for which he iitu-:.
it and tilal In Phib'ih'lpiiia, where he
is said lo have pit $7mi from a bank

pliere. if both eyes are kept on He
bait, one of them invariably fPos up
with it to the green. Uy following our
rule however, tin? eyes pull awav
'rom each other, thus proven' tng you
rom satisfying your curiosity about
the ultimate destination of the. ball.
This curiosity hy tho wav, is v. b;-1
ruins the game of a large majority.
Always play with a worsu pmyer
than j ourself--if you can find one.
I lie rule of playing w ith a better one
is all wrong. Coif is the only game
"here one never feds any resentment
towards oue's opponent, and onlv svin
pat by or anger for one's self. I;y play
ing with a worse player, therefore,
ono is excited to sympathize vvt'L hi:,i
Yo sympathize is to emulate a poor
r player than yourself, you necessar
ily take more strokes, which means
more practice, and in the long run,
tho more practice you get the heller
; our game will be.
When you are learning, bow to play
hc game that is to say, in the fir. t
ten years or so always be accom
panied by two caddies instead of one.
One. of these should be employed to
loam the distant fields nnd penetrate
tho deep jungles on your right aud
left, searching (in vain) for lost ball.-.
The other should remain lonstnntly
al. your side, soothing you by bis
gentle presence, handing you the
v rom: clubs and holding himself as a
target for whatever terms of eudcat
n cnt you vvit-h to bestow upon bun
during moments of religious exalta
tion. The expense, of course, you will
i.ut mind. Nobody who wishes to think
be may in time play a good jjame of
gclf cares to hang about th expense.
