the well known expert In that game
which will be of Interest to those de
siring Information on that popular

having learned the came In his in
fancy knows Its every detail. H laid
out the links at the country club house
and Instructed the members of the
rlub in the mysteries of the game. At
present Mr. Bendelow Is residing in
New York. His article Is as follows:
"Three or four years atro there was
introduced Into America a game which
looked at from every side possible to
the uninitiated promised to have M
hard an uphill fight for recognition
us did the Knglish game of cricket
' when first Introduced into this coun
u y. The game was termed golf, or
more properly "gotl," the letter "1"
tiling silent as In calf, and pronounced
in the vernacular of the land from
which it emanates 'gowff.' Contrary to
all expectations, however, the game
has become so popular In this country
that it promises to outrank In favor
the national game of base ball.
"Golf has for many centuries been
the national game of Scotland and
is nt present the most fashionable
name in England and America. No
same stirs a keener enthusiasm in its
votaries, and few people Who have
ver really given the game a fair trial
will be found to deny Its extreme fas
cination. It is a manly and health
ful recreation, bringing Into play as
it does, a constant exercise of brain
.inns and legs. It can be played fast
or slow at pleasure, thus equally
adapting Itself to the overflowing ex
uberance of youth, the matured and
tempered strength of manhood, and
to the gentle decays of age.
"It is uncertain at what date golf
was introduced in Scotland, but in 1457
the Scotlsh parliament 'decreted and
ordained that golf be utterly cry It
down and nocht uslt,' It having be
come a serious menace to the then
more Important study and practice of
archery. Again in 1491 a final and
angry fulmination was issued which
carried with it a tine of forty shillings,
it run this: 'Foteball and golfe for
bidden. Item, it is statut and or
dainit that in nae place of the realme
there be uslt foteball, golfe or other
sik unprofitable sportls, under the pain
i if fourtle shillings.' This was an edict
of James IV, and it ts an evidence of
the extreme fascination of the game
that very shortly after James IV him
self figures prominently In the old
golfing records as a liberal patron of
GOLF CLUBS EVERYWHERE.
"Today we have golf clubs nearly
all over the world as an evidence of Its
xreat popularity. Golf clubs of long
standing exist in Bombay, Calcutta,
Australia, South America, Canada, and
in the United States. One can form
some slight idea how the game has
'caught on' in America when it Is said
that today there are over 400 clubs
in existence here, and every week Is
adding to the already large list, and
it Is only a question of time when no
doubt international matches will be
held to decide the Question of supre
macy. "As a proof that tt ts no mere fad
one has only got to look at the amount
of money expended in the construction
of links for the pursuance of the game,
many club's expense In that one direc
tion running well Into five figures.
Ardesley Casino, on the Hudson, cost
over $50,000 to put It in shape for play
ing, let alone cost of club house and
other necessary equipments. It is all
the rage. One cannot go twenty miles
into the country nowadays without
seeing evidences of the golf fiend In
some shape or other. You find him In
the street car. In the restaurant at
the seashore, in the mountains, in fact
everywhere. In any large city you
cannot walk two blocks ere you meet
him arrayed in all the splendour il
the latest importation in golfing cos
tume, bag with clubs slung over his
shoulder, and with that 'break the
record' expression on his countenance
which Is so common among golferj.
If you chance to have a speaking ac
quaintance with him, all the worse, as
it means you have to listen to nothing
but Jargon about foozled drives,
schlafted, brassy and Iron shots, which
terms are so much Greek to the ordin
"County clubs have likewise caught
the golf fever, and today there Is not a
country club of any note, which can
not boast of a nine-hole or an eighteen
hole golf course, and of Its large num
ber of votaries. And Scranton Is In no
wise behind. Today It has as sporty a
nine hole course as can be found-In any
part of the country, the natural loca
tion of the ground being all that could
be desired for Indulging In the' royal
sport, abounding as It does with creoks
and bunkers, and provided In addition
with a fair supply of gorse and brush;
.all of which constitute the main haz
ards of the game, in the avoidance of
which skill ts especially shown, and
, without a fair provision of these no
golfing links or green can be held to
approach the ideal standard.
"The length of the entire course is
something over 2,200 yards, and the
holes have , been named as follows:
1, The Vista; 2, Dead Easy; 3, Hard
Luck: 4, Red Top: 6. Btralghaway: 6.
The Hollow; 7. The Lottery; 8, Pine
Hill: and , Bunker Hill. No two holes
are the same, thus giving players a
better chance of acquiring a knowledge
of the game in an its fullness, and like
wise enabling them to hold their end
up in match play with the best of the

DESCRIPTION OF THE GAME.
A little said on how the game Is
played may not be amiss here. Golf
may be practiced on any good stretch
of meadow land where the graes is not
too rank, but the ground best suited
for the purpose is a reach of undulat
ing country, covered with a short crisp
turf occasionally broken up by sand
holes or bunkers, and provided In ad
dition with a fair amount of gorse or
brush. The course should not be less
than 2.000 yards, and Includes nine
holes, which may be placed according
to the "lie" of the ground at any dis
tance from 100 to S00 yards apart and
placed In such position that collision
between outgoing and Incoming play
ers will be avoided.
"These holes are 4Vi Inches In diame
ter and not less than 4 Inches In depth,
and usually situated In the centre of
the putting green, which should be as
large as possible. The location of the
hole on the putting green Is generally
designated with the number of the hole,
which marking disc or flag requires to
be taken out when players approach
the green and replaced after scoring.
Another factor of great importance In
the game Is the teeing ground, that is (
the name given to the point from which j
the player strikes the ball in playing j
for each hole. It Is generally a raised
dnls of earth or clay, filled Inside a
frame, and laid at right angles to the
Duttine green about to be played for.
"The ball used for the game Is made
of guttapercha, well seasoned. It U
about inches in diameter ana may
weigh from 26 to 28 pennywelgths. Var
ious kinds of clubs are used In the
game, both wood and Iron, chief of
which are, the driver, brsssey, deck,
lofting Iron, masshey and putter.
"The game is played by two persons,
or by four (two a side), plavlng alter
nately. It may also be played by thre?
or more persons each playing his own
ball. The game commences by each
party playing off a ball from the te
toward the first. (The one entitled to
D ay first Is usually settled by the toss
of a coin, although the courtesy of
starting first Is generally granted to
older members of the club.) The hole
Is won by the player who holes out (I. e.
gets his ball Into the hole) In the fewest
number of strokes, tre mode of reck
oning being made by the terms odd and
like, one more, two more, etc.
HOW TO DRIVE THE BALL.
'After the tee shot, where the player
has the privilege of setting his ball up
on a little mound of sand to faciliate
his better driving It, he must play his
ball strictly from its place as It hap
pens to be. In sand, bunker, or else
where, and not touch It again until he
picks It out of the first hole, prepara
tory to teeing It again to drive to the
second hole, and so on until he ha
gone around the course. The ball must
at all times be fairly hit at, and spoon
ing or pushing the ball from any posi
tion means the loss of the hole being
"A player can take his ball out of any
bunker by losing two strokes, or out of
any unplayable place not a bunker by
losing one stroke. A game consists of
IS holes, requiring the player to play
around a nine hole course twice, and
the player winning the greatest num
ber of holes on the round wins the
game or If in medal play, the one doing
the course In the fewest number of
"As a means of relaxation, both for
body and mind there ts no game like it,
and I only hope that It will become
more and more popular among the class
of people who have the capacity to en-

They Were Defeated in the First
Gome of the Series.
"A big and Jolly party of the Scranton
Country club arrived in town at 1
o'clock today to see a match between
their favorites and the team represen
tatives of the Wyoming Country Club
of this city," says Saturday's Wllkes
Barre Evening Leader. "There has
been a good deal of anticipation about
the match and the several hundred
members of both clubs and several hun
dred friends of each party have been
making it a personal matter of deepest
"The Scranton team consisting of
Messrs. Brooks, Simpson, Watklns, Ful
ler, Sanderson, arrived here at 9 this
morning and went directly to the links
of the Wllkes-Barre club for practice.
They worked hard all the morning and
returned to town at noon for dinner at
the Westmoreland where they were en
tertained by the Wilkes-Barre golfers.
The main body of the Scranton sym
pathizers took a special car on the
Delaware and Hudson at Scranton and
they were met at the Lehigh Valley
station by L. B. Jones and others, rep
resenting the Wllkes-Barre club. A
special car on the Traction company's
system was In watting at the station
and the party went at once to the club
grounds. The tournament was set for
1.30, but It was some minutes after that
hour when the players started off the

The boxing tournament at Music Hall
Satuiday night under the auspices of
the Excelsior Athletic club was wit
nessed by not more than 250 persons.
General satisfaction was expressed at
the exhibition provided, and it was
the opinion of many that the event was
one of the most successful yet con
ducted by the Excelsiors.
Four boxing bouts were on the pro
gramme besides two bug-punching ex
hibitions. One of the bouts descended
to the level of brutality before it was
In operation a minute, but the referee
promptly put an end to It and sent the
sluggers off the stage. The other bouts
P. J. Murphy was referee; James J.
Qulnnan and John T. Brown, Judges;
James J. Coleman, timekeeper, and
Joseph McNally, president of the Club,
announcer. It was nearly 0 o'clock be
fore the exercises begun.
P. R. McGowan, of Providence, a
heavy weight member of the club, and
a muscular well built' fellow, punched
the tag for ten minutes and won ap
plause. Joe WUlischek, of Phllid 1
phia, the clever light weight who is
always a favorite here, followed with
a bag punching exhibition and dis
played his quickness.
TWO OLD-TIME RIVALS.
Whqn Announcer McNally stated
that the first bout would be between
Captain P. J. Durkln and Anthony
Gordon, of the Excelsiors, there was
not very much enthusiasm. The spec
tators took It for granted that this was
to be a very tame and friendly ex
hibition. But It was nothing of the
sort. From beginning to end It con
sisted of the hardest and hottest style
of scientific boxing. There was no
clinching. The men stood at arm's
length and delivered and took blows
with great regularity. Gordon was
heavier, bigger and In better condition,
but he had nothing to spare when time
was called in the last round, if tne
captain were In trim Gordon wou'.d
have a top match. They have been ri
vals for a long time, although In a
friendly spirit, and when the Judges
decided In favor of Gordon, the canfln
very gracefully accepted the decision.
The second bout was between John
McKenna, of Trenton, and John
Youngs, of Philadelphia, two bantam
weights. McKenna had the advantage
of heighth and reach and he needed
both. Youngs is a terrific hitter for a
little fellow. Honors were even until
the third round, when the Trentonlte
put on extra steam and he kept the
Fhlladelphian busy dodging blows. The
Judges agreed upon McKenna as the
before the bout McKenna made some
remarks about liking to go in against
Wlllischeck, but after he finished with
Youngs he changed his mind, for he
had his hands full In beating him and
he was not anxious for any further en
gagements that night.
THE BOUT THAT WAS STOPPED.
Billy Madison and Patsy Gibbons
were the next two on the boards. This
was the bout the referee stopped. Gib
bons is from Pittston. He ts the one
that was up against John Tight at the
tournament two weeks ago Saturday
night when Judge and Leonard met
and were parted. Madison and Gib
bons had been at it before and there
was fire in each one's eyes when they
entered the ring.
They went at it like tigers and In a
Jiffy both were rolling on the floor.
The referee told them that was not
the way to box and warned them to
fight squarely or he would order them
off. They lurid no heed to him but
went at. it again as fierce as ever,
and then he separated them and sent
them out of the ring. They glared
at each other and uttered hard names
as they were retiring Into the wings
of the stage, and it looked as if they
might have it out rough and tumble.
Just before Madison and Gibbons
came together Mr. McNally announced
that It would be the last bout, as
there was no one to meet Joe WUlis
chek. He said the club had made
every effort to get a man to box Joe
but thought the latter was willing to
meet any man even In the 135-pound
class, there was no amateur In Scran
ton with heart enough to come for
ward. "What's the matter with Tighe?"
came in loud chorus from the. specta
tors. . f
TIGHE TO THE RESCUE.
"I'll see If that can be arranged,"
said he, and after a few minutes' con
sultation with Tighe and WUlischek
he came back and announced that
they were agreed.
Accordingly the two boxers came to
gether. WUlischek gave as fine an ex
hibition of boxing as anyf one could
wish to see. He landed on Tighe sev
eral times without getting anything In
return, but Tighe did not hit him once
without receiving payment Immediate
ly. At the end of the third round the
Judges disagreed in their decision. Mr.
Qulnnan thought Tighe was the win
ner, and Mr. Brown decided in favor
An extra round was the result. In
which Tighe adopted rushing tactics

was no one to meet him.
FOOT BALL SATURDAY.
Carlisle Indians Give Yale Boys a Lively
Battle'-Pennsyivan'a Defeated by
LafayetteAt Oilier Places.
New York, Oct. 23. The Rluemen of
Yale and the Tied men of Carlisle met on
Manhattan field yesterday. It was a
furious battle and when It was all over
the score was 12 to 6 In favor of Yale,
but It should -have been 12 to 12 and
would have been, allowing that an easy
gcal would be kicked, had not the
referee. W. O. Hickok, the Yaleslan
weight thrower, made a mistake. It
was like this: Cayou got the ball on a
fumble five minutes after play had
started and with a beautiful run of
75 yards scored a touchdown from
which a goal was kicked. Yale nerved
up and by the hardest kind of playing
made two touchdowns and goals.
The second half bgnn witn tne
Yale' pretty well winder! and the In
dians looking and acting as If they
had been playing marbles. The ball
was carried up and down the field first
by one and then the other until towards
the close of the half when Jameson
broke out a pile-up with the ball under
his arm and covered forty yards of
clear field for a touchdown. However
the refereee'S whistle had blown Just
as he started for Yale's conl line and
he had to come back. Referee Hickok
admitted his error.
"I thought," said he to Captain Pierce,
"that your wedge had stepped whan I
blew the whistle for a cessation of play.
Just as I blew It Jameson brok.e through
with the ball. I am sorry but the best
thing you can do is go on and play."
The Indians were heavier and stronger.
They had the better line. They were
better trained. The effort that prac
tically exhausted Yale were nothing to
them. It was as easy as a game of ten
nis, and if another period of twenty
five minute had been played. It Is al
most certain that the Redman would
V. Of P. Defeated by Lafayette.
Philadelphia, Oct. 25. Over 13,000 peo
ple saw Pennsy defeated by Lafayette
on Franklin field yesterday by a score
of 6 to 4. Pennsylvania outplayed the
men from Easton but was lax at times
and this laxity was taken advantage
of by the opponents. Several times, af
ter carrying the ball almost to Lafay
ette's line, they would lose it on a fum
ble. Finally they held the ball, and
UfTenhelmer was pushed through the
centre for a touchdown. The kick out
was a failure, and no more scoring was
done in the half. Pennsylvania's de
fence was magnificent, and only once
did Lafayette make the necessary five
The visitors fooled the Quakers on a
fake pass and Barclay went around the
right end to Pennsylvania's three-yard
line. On the line-up Barclay went
around the Quakers' left end for a
touchdown, from which he easily kicked
a goal. The Quakers seemed stunned
by the suddenness of the thing, and for
the short remaining time played like
wooden men. When the game ended
the ball was on Pennsylvania's twenty
While Lafayette deserved her victory
for taking advantage of a poor play.
Pennsylvania outplayed the Eastoalans
and kept the ball In their territorycar
ly all the time. For Pennsylvania Gil
bert played a fine game at left half
back, and on the defence the whole
Quaker, line was impregnable. Wood
ruffs fumbles and Mlnds's poor bunt
ing were costly. Lafayette was wlth

play. Outside of the punting Cornell
