THE ft'UKAJSTON ' TltlHUJN'E SATUKDAY MOKJNXCTGK SEPTEMBER 1 1891;
During the past week there was a
decided revival in matters social. The
homecomers from the summer resorts
set the ball in motion and it will be
kept spinning merrily during the
coming week. There are many visitors
now in the city und during the week
numerous delightful social functions
will be held in their honor, as well as
others of a more pretentious nature.
The tennis tournament of the Scranton
Lawn club, w ith which the week will
close, will bring many guests to the
city, who will be entertained in vari
ous ways. It is expected that the
coming tournament will eclipse all
previous efforts of the lawn club.
This will be the week par excellence
of the college people. They are re
turning to the city from the different
resorts of the mountains, country or
seaside, where they whiled away a
portion of their vacations, and are now
preparing to return to their studies aft

The third annual tournament of the
Scranton Lawn club will be held at
the club grounds at Piatt place Friday
and Saturday afternoon. Its success is
assured by the number and character
of the entries received. Much interest
is being displayed in this tournament
and there will be a great outpouring of
society people to witness the work of
those who enter the contests. The
prizes that will be awarded are as fol
lows: Singles, first, pair of silver
backed military brushes: second, silver
backed hat brush. Doubles, first prize,
silver backed clothes brushes. These
brushes will be engraved with the
initials of the Scranton Lawn club and

There Is a movement on foot among
Bome of the male members of the lawn
club to somewhat alter the sphere of
me lawn ciuo ana make it a more sub
stantial nart of the local social srruo-
ture. The plan In view contemplates
the purchase or lease of land along the
new nouievard upon which four or five
courts could be laid out and a club
house erected to be conducted on the
plan of a country club. Such an insti
tution would be novel and attractive
and a delightful place for informal so
cial affairs after practice in the courts,
besides providing a stopping place for

and Ohio divisions: "The executive
committee of the League of American
Wheelmen will shortly take measures
for an active campaign for highway
improvement and general state laws
preventing villages and cities irqm en
acting special ordinances restricting
the rights or wheelmen. As sucn leg
islation much be secured in the states,
I write to ask if vour division will co
operate with the natioual executive
committee in the prosecution of this
work. If so. will you advise me as
soou as possible whether your legisla
ture meetft this year and when you
elect senators and assemblymen? Also,
in which direction you deem such
work most iudicious. I am desirous
that the league take such active part
in the comiug fall campaign as will
convince representatives in the legis
latures that wheelmen are sufficiently
organized and in such strength as to
command attention to their reasouauie
demands from those who make our
laws." The scheme of Mr. Luscomb
is approved and will be acted upon at

Naturally much of the talk nowadays
is of Zimmerman. Here are two
stories, culled at random: Zimmerman
was the recipient recently of a prize
which was not mentioned in tne pro
gramme. At the termination of a race
which he won easily, and wniie on the
way to his dressing room, a young
lailv, Mile. Joiinne Virgile, tluew he
nruis around his neck und gave him a
hearty smack. The champion was
naturally startled for a moment, but
soon retrained Ills uftial self-iiosvcs'sion

the "Skceter's" behalf, with the result
that a challenge was sent and accepted

The New York Sun is not sure that
the long-distauce racing fever is to be
commended. "Any wheelman of
good physical do era and a fairly gooi
road can." It tbinks."cover a huudred
miles in one day. A 15-year-old girl
of this neighborhood, we are sorry to
say, bus receutly accomplished the
Teat, ilut to keep up this pace every
day for a week aud a half on indiffer
ent country roads shows exceptional
powers of endurance. The legs, heart
aud lungs that can stand such a strain
are entitled to much respect. But we
are afraid they would not many times
submit to the lmnosltlon without an
eftectlve protest. If most bicycle tour
ists cannot cross the continent in
month, or make phenomenal bursts of
speed, they have their compensations.
Surely no conveyance lends itself more
gracefully to varying mooaa ana in
clinations. If a well-shaded stone
wall on a breezy hilltop invites
the traveler to light bis pipe and
rest aud dream awhile, the wheel is
ever ready to stop turning. We would
not relinquish tne privilege or linger
ing by the brooksldeaof the High
lands or on the hilltops where the Mo
hawk may be seen stretching for miles
away, for all the honors won by rac
ers. The advantage of the wheel is
that it will go while we enjoy it. and
stop when we are tired; and that is the
way to get pleasure and benefit from a
bicycle tour. The man who bends ev
ery eflbit to the sole purpose of making
nigniy eltectlve piston rods or bis legs,
misses all the fun of bicycling, except
the sense of motion. The women
wheelers, on the whole,are the most
sensible, for they are not continually
forcing the pace, which is the beset
ting sin of most of their male rela
tions. On a well-planned bicy
cle route the halting place for the
Ight may usually be fixed for
some point that is worth seeing.
The wheelman who jogs comfortably
along over forty or fifty miles of road
in a day lias some energy leit to de
vote, for instance, to the beautiful
gorge of the Genesee at Rochester, or
the famous limestone formation at
Trenton Falls. He also has time to ex
press some vigorous opinions on the
subject of roads to the Intelligent farm
ers he meets, aud his remarks will be
cogent and convincing particularly if
lie Mas just struggled through two
miles of sand without a sidepath. At
the end of a day's run. It is better to
still retain some interest in human af
fairs, than merely to wish for oblivious
slumber at the nearest hotel. Our ad
vice to bicycle tourists Is to travel
neither too fast nor too far in a day, to
conrlde their luggage to the express
companies if they must curry more
than a few pounds weight, and to keep
their eyesvand minds open to every
novel and pleasing aspect or nature.
With fair conditions of travel they will
then see the country and eujoy it as
tuey never have done beiore. aud will
be glad that they live in the age that
Invented this wonderful source of
amusement and recreation."

n.ua marie Dreager, solo contralto and
Mr. Alfred Wooler. tenor, of Kim Purir
The entertainment will be one of the
most elaborate ever given at the
Frothingham and will be a society
event in many respects. The staire
will be draped especially for the occa
sion and will contain an elegaut draw
ing room setting. The ereater portion
of the audience will appear in full
dress and the occasion will be one of
brilliancy. Mme. Blauvelt is too well
known to Scranton audiences to need
other introduction thau the announce'
ment of the date of her appearance.
The fact that she will appear is suffi
cient assurance that the entertainment
will be of a high class.
Application blanks for those who
wish to join Mr. Lindsay's chorus
may be lound at roweil's. As Mr.
Lindsay's recommendations are of a
high order ho will undoubtedly re
ceive tne nearty support or all Hcran
