feaalnnal Tennla Inatrnetnr.
NEW rORK, May 15. Opinion seems to
be general that the action of the Ardsley
Club in providing a lawn tennla profes
sional for Its members Is a step In the
right direction which should be followed
by the other clubs. In no other game Is
the teaching end neglected as It Is here.
All other sports have professional Instruc
tors or coaches, themselves taught by pro
fessionals, and new players are coming up
all the time. In tennis, horn-ever, players
have to teach themaelvea, except on oc
casions where some youngster shows re
markable aptitude for the game, and then
the experts unbend and do a little coach
ing. With the engagement of teachers of the
game the experts will have to look to their
laurels, and will not have their own way
In most of the tournaments throughout the
country 'as they have In the past. The
complaint has been general among clubs
that ther are no new playera of ability
coming up to take the places of those who
retire, and that for many years one set of
men have been called upon to defend the
cups here from foreigners, and gp to the
other side, or even to Australia, to repre
sent America. Nearly all of the ranking
players are In business, and cannot al
ways find the time to practice as they
should, and then when their services are
necessary, they have to devote more time
than they can spare to getting Into con
dition, and then comes the cry that no
youngsters are coming up tp take their
If other clubs follow the example of
Ardsley, there will soon be a new crop of
tennis players who will give the older men
a strong argument, and It will be only a
question of a year or two when there will
be dozens of promising players where there
is one today.
Approval of this plan was given today
by many tennis players, who have made
good players out of themselves by watch
ing some of the-cracks play, studying tho
way the different strokes are made, and
then trying to use them, but they say the
men who have the advantage pf having an
Instructor to give them a few suggestions,
plus what they pick up from watching the
cracks, ought to make very good playera.
A champion of a number of years said:
"It would be a great help to tho men be
ginning In the game, as it would give them
a good start, which counts a great deal,
and. Instead of falling air over the court,
it would give them an Idea how to handle
the racquet and move about the court, and
with this good fcur.datlon a rapid move
ment would certainly follow. If all the
other clubs would adopt tho same plan- It
would be a great thing."
Another player of many years, who
thinks that the Idea of having an In
structor would be a great help, said: "An
Instructor Is all right, but there ' are a
number of men who would not want to
give up their strokes and start to study
those of the teacher. The Instructor would
help a lot In the line of giving suggestions,
but In trying to teach his men to use his
way of playing would not suit a number
of men, but an Instructor wpuld help, a
beginner a great deal." . .
"A man can make a good player out of
himself, if he has an instructor to look
after him, taking his suggestions and
watching the cracks play; and, putting all
together, it would certainly be' a great
help. If all clubs had tennis Instructors
it would be a great aid to beginners," said
unuther ex-chaniplon.

Many Owners Have Tried ' to Take
This Prise Across the Pond.
NEW YORK, May 15.-One of the notable
automobile prize trophies of the world Has
found a resting place in New York. It
never left the United States, however, as
the American car was always too swift
for Its foreign competitors.
The trophy in question is that presented
by Sir Thomas R. Dewar, former -mem
ber of the British Parliament and high
sheriff of London, who Is well known
throughout the world as a man who takes
a ken Interest In all departments of
manly sports. . .
8ir Thomas Dewar was a visitor to the
Florida beach In 1905 and In that year he
gave a J,ooo trophy, to be known as the
Sir Thomas Dewar trophy, as a mile In
ternational prise, open to all cars of any
country or manufacture, provided they
should come within the then heavyweight
limitation of 2,204 pounds. The. first con
test for the trophy was held on the fa
mous Ormond-Daytona beach, now known
as the Daytona beach, Florida. '
That year England sent over .Arthur
Macdonald, a famous speed driver, with
a ninety horsepower Napier, to capture the
trophy, but he had to compete against
such notable drivers as H. L, Bowden of
Boston. E. Russell Thomas, the New York
ex-banker, with his ninety-five horsepower
Mercedes; Paul Sartort, with fe ninety
horsepower Flat; H. W. Fletcher, with an
eighty horsepower De Dietrich, and the fa
mous Louis R. Ross of Boston, who drove
a little Stanley torpedo-shaped steamer a
mile In 0:32. defeating all the big gasoline-powered
cars. Sir Thomas dubbed the
Stanley steamer, the "Tea Kettle," be
cause of Its funnel on the top of a low
bullt torpedo-shaped body, through which
the steam came In a great cloud.
The next yeur England sent over Wal
ter Clifford-Earp, with an eighty horse
power Napier, and again America tight
ened' Its hold on the trophy when Fred
Marriott drove another Stanley steamer
In the world's record time of 0:28H, which
has never been approached since. Chevro
let, with a 3o horsepower Darracq, came
the nearest to Marriott In 0:30H. and a
few minutes later Victor Demogeot, with
the" 200 horsepower Darracq, drove a
world's record for two miles In 0 MS-
Owing to the reluctance of the Internal
combustion engine manufacturers to enter
cars against what were termed "freak
racing machines." the cup was not com
peted for In 1907 and 1908.
The board of trustees at last received a
letter from the Stanley Motor Carriage
company relinquishing Its claim to the
trophy; so It was decided that, as the
rules have been changed materially alnce
the cup was donated. It should be put up
last winter In Florida and become the ab
solute property of the winner. The big
Bens racer which Hemery drove Into sec
ond place at Savannah for the - grand
prise gold cup, and which was only one
minute behind the winner In the 400-mlle
race, was sent to the Daytona beach by
the Bens company, it being entered by
Hugh M-lrt t'" famous Australian
sportsn u:i, .. r.cu.Uiaiod David L.
Bruce-Brown, the young New York mil
lionaire amateur, to drive it. Bruce
Brown easily captured the prise In 6:33.
Champion Will Meet the Cowboy at
the Auditorium.
He Rearnn by Dswslas a Broncho
Tnrka Are Still After the Seals
of the Iowa World
Frank Ootch will wrestle Charley Olson
st the Auditorium the night of May 14, and
that may be the last time Omaha fans will
see the world's champion In action, at
least until he returns from Melbourne,
Australia, where he is to meet George
H.ickenschmldt next January, for Ootch
talks of retiring after that.
This man Olson Is as big as Ootch and
he ought to make the champion work a
little. He has thrown Fred Beell, who 1
rated on a par with Farmer Burns, and
next to Ootch. Olson Is young, strong and
active. He waa a cowboy in his younger
days and. In fact, until very recently. He
came by wrestling accidentally. Tusseling
with a broncho one day, his pals observed
a powerful exhibition of strength and told
him he ought to be a wrestler. He hsd
the mustang In a corral and was trying to
saddle him. It was In tho course of this
process that he threw Mr. Mustang to the
But he will have hold of a tougher propo
sition than this broncho In Gotch. Olson
is one of the men who keeps In good trim.
Unlike John PerrelH, who lost easily ti
Gotch a few weeks ago at the ' Audi
torium, Olson has a pride In his work.
He believes that some day he will be the
successor rf Ootch as world's champion.
Manager Gillan of the Auditorium Is
making plans for high class preliminaries
for this match. He may be able to Induce
John Holden to meet Oscar Wasem. Both
these men are good, Wasem being a higher
grade professional and of longer experi
ence, but Holden thinks he can throw
Wasem, and has not thus far consented to
meet him. Wasem Is willing to make any
sort of wager that he can beat Holden.
Local fans hope Holden will agree to meet
Wasem and settle the old score.
It is also probable that two big police
men will go on In the preliminaries, and
maybe Farmer Burns' son. Raymond, and
a youth from Council Bluffs. This Is to be
a big event In the line of wrestling.
Tnrka Still After Gotch.
Ootch Is still being pursued by the Turks.
Since he beat Youetff Mahmout so" com
pletely at Chicago, Antolne Plerrl, the im
porter of Mahmout and every other big
Turk for the last fifteen years, has been
wild In his efforts to land a man to beat
Gotch, and he comes now with a line of
talk from Europe, via mall, that he has a
man who can down the American. This Is
what he said Mahmout would do, so the
American public will wait until tha last
fall to form Its Judgment.
Upon leaving Chicago with Mahmout
after Gotcb had quickly given Mahmout
his quietus in the Dexter Park pavilion
championship match, Manager Antolne
Fierrl confined his remarks to thta one:
"Wo are beaten fairly . and squarely.
Mahmount met his master. But we return
to Europe, and I expect to bring back a
Turk bigger than Tusslff. the unbeaten,
who will throw Ootch. I'll get Gotch yet If
he dares enter the ring with the wrestler I
bring over."
In a letter recently from Manager Plerrl,
who was at Strssburg on May 2, the wrest
ling promoter gives the Information that
an Asiatic fwsha has Hassan Morat in
charge, and that Hassan has beaten every
opponent who dared face him at catoh-as-catch-can,
"Hassan Is big," writes Plerr!. "It will
cost me a lot of money to get him away
from the pasha for the trip to the United
States, but Til get him and arrive with
both Mahmout and Hassan some tlmeln
September. Hansen Is afraid of no man
In the world. Ootch looks to him no more
than scores of men he has met In the
lsst year. Mehmout, honestly., looks
most a pygmy compared to Hassan.
send over tl.OnO to post as a forfeit for
Ootch to cover If he will meet Hassan."
Ootch's representative today could not
speak for the Iowa farmer. The latter,
however, said recently that he Intended to
retire next fall, after going to Australia
to wrestle George Hackenschmldt at Mel
bourne - a $12,600 plum, "win, lose or
draw.' I addition Gotch Is to get three
round-tnp tickets to Australts.
ECnow your own State
Everybody knows that Nebraska is prosperous. Many people, how
ever, even in Nebraska, do not know the source of its prosperity, except
in their own neighborhood. Neither is it always understood in the cities,
as to the cause of the general prosperity of the farmer, and the farmer may
not be -familiar with what has been most essential in bringing about the
prosperity of our towns and cities.
In the coming articles, descriptive of the diferent counties of the stat the Commercial Club and
their good roads campaign will receive attention; from what the state has been develop and the place it
holds today in the industrial world; the advantages Nebraska offers to those who may come here; what
the farmers of today have accomplished, and the possibilities for the farmer of the future; what the
Btock-breeders and stock-feeders have developed and what they are trying to develop; what the dairy
industry has to offer and how it is being received or rejected by the average farmer. The fruit industry
has added to the pleasure and profit of the home; the com grower has learned and is learning, and his
knowledge of improved methods are of immense value to himself and his neighbors. The railroads have
done much for the state and have receivd much in return from the people. Thrify towns and cities of
the state are growing, and how they are making progress will be told. The county schools, the school
teacher and county superintendent of schools are e ntitled to notice and will be touched upon.
All of these things will receive special attention in the future articles.
No one can be well posted unless they know their own state.

Sweep Swlngcers Are Bending? to
' Their Work at Cambridge.
BOSTON, Mass , May .-Wlth the mem
ories of the six-length victory over Colum
bia's eight In tha recent two-mile race on
the Charles river. Harvard's sweep swing
ers are bending to their work, hoping to
overthrow Cornell's varsity in a like man
ner. The defeat of the light blue and white
showed Harvard undergraduates that they
have'a boat every whit as powerful as the
one that trounced Tale so severely on the
Thames last summer. The work in the
Columbia race demonstrated beyond a
doubt that the crimson watermen are steel-
nerved veterans and powerful athletea,
The false start did not unnerve the Harvard
craft, and when the nervous Mornlngsiders
paddled back to the starting line the Cam
bridge men awaited the pistol shot with
supreme Indifference.
But It will be a different proposition on
May 31, when Coach Wray's men Journey
up to Ithaca for a two-mile race on Lake
Cayuga with Cornell. Coach Courtney Is
Issuing the usual fine line of "bear
stories" from the Cornell camp, but Har
vard la not to be caught napping and will
enter the contest keyed to the highest
pitch. Last year the crimson watermen
ran away from the Ithacans In a two-mile
race on the Charles, and Coach Wray Is
extremely anxious to repeat. As for
Courtney, he Is laying low, doling out tales
of hard luck, yet withal determined to
score a victory over ths crimson eight
with his red and white.
Harvard is preparing for the race In
earnest. After having rested the week fol
lowing the Columbia contest, the oarsmen
resumed practice and hard and prolonged
work has characterised every drill. The
varsity is rowing with the same smooth
recovery and powerful leg drive that waa
shown in the Columbia race and Is rarsdly
rounding Into excellent form. This year
the crew appears to be rowing with a
shorter and snappier stroke than It did in
1908. It Is a question whether It Is safe to
follow this apparent policy of developing
a two-mile stroke for preliminary contests
when the Tale race, the big event of the
season, is four miles. Wray la confident,
however, that he has a versatile boat and
that no evil results will occur from pre
paring his men so particularly for the early
season short -distance rows. In any event
It will be a row erf ul crew that will face
the Oornelllana on May a and the race bids
fair to go down In college athletic annals
as ones of the best that has been contested
between the tw.i universities.

of paid admission tfcKVts taken "In during

done for us." '

According to Mr. Slllart, the show breaks
even financially this time, and with a lot
of valuable equipment, lights and decora
tions paid for. He says that next year
entertainment of a sensational and spec
tacular character will be provided along
with the more refined and high grnde at
tractions, such as they furnished In the
way of music this year. The women will
be given more attention In the future, ac
cording to the plans, a complete electric
kitchen and dining roTn being contem
plated among other things.
City Electrician , Waldemar Mlchaelsen,
who has been a constant worker, said last
night: "We are eapecUUy gratified on ac
count of the attention he show and Omaha
are getting from the papers and magazines,
especially the big eastern electrical pub
lics ttons. The Electrical World, for In
stance, devotes five pages of pictures and
written matter to the show and the city
gets advertised from It. Dr. MUlener's
triumph will make It one of the most
widely advertised shows ever held."
"Exhibitors are more than satisfied with
the success from a sales standpoint," de
clared I. B. Zlmman, contract agent for
the Electric Light company and one of
the men who made the show a reality.
"The industrial power booth showed In
miniature to Commissioner Guild and other
Commercial club men 'what the proposed
Indu trial exposition would be like."
Before leaving for Cincinnati Saturday
night Miss Blanche Mehaffey, who sang
twice dally throughout the show, remarked,
"I like Omaha and the electrical show.
They're all right."
Everybody- Mked It.
And everybody else liked the big shpw.
In fact, a certain quartet of small but
highly curious boys liked It so much that
they broke Into the basement of the Audi
torium a day or so before the last day
and held a regular revel of Invest lgntlon
until they were caught In the act of getting
too familiar with aome of ths appliances.
So, with due credit going to tho many
boosters, large and small, everyone con
nected wtih the ahow Is well satisfied with
Its outcome for Itsel and the city and
willing to go Into the project during coming
years, the gigantic event came to a close
Saturday night, amid the nnlsy and Joyous
t' otlni of electric horns, the ringing of
bells and the applause of thousands of
people who had attended.

hugely, but It Is doubtful If all the per

principal address of the evening, choosing
for his subject "The Social Cosmos." He
showed very clearly the advances con

attractive program assisted by Miss Esther

Mr. Oberhoffer grows more and more Im
pressive, with each number he- presents,
and his work displays much careful, thor
ough rehearsal with a body of skillful
musicians, who have given themselves to
the task of weaving beautiful pictures in
tone from a pattern well laid out and pre
pared for them by the Interpretative
genius of their conductor. Mr. Oberhoffer
has daily rehearsals with the orchestra at
home, and more funds are being added
every year to build up the organization,
for the people of Minneapolis are wide
awake to their opportunities and are proud
to speak of "Our Orchestra."
Mr. Oberhoffer stated last night that the
orchestra had In sight a quarter of a mil
lion dollars for Its next five years woik.
One of the most Interesting features of
the series of concerts has been the play
