TRIED Tfl CARVE BILLIARD
BALLS FROM COW'S HORKS
Harry Cline, Who WUI Play Here With
the Champion Billing Players'
League, Born On a Farm in Lan
Harry Cline, the ex-chauipion 18:2
billiard pliyer was from his youth of
an inventive turn of mind. The first
real disappointment of his lu'e was his
failure to curve a set of billiard balls
from the horns of a cow.
Cline's father was a farmer in l*n
caster county. Pa., and Harry was o:
rural habits until he visited the billiard
room of the country hotel at Lancaster,
which his father conducted in connec
tion with his farm.
Youag Cline was at on,*e fascinated
with the game but on account of his
youth wus forbidden to p!av the game.
At that day the environments of a bil
liard room were not considered the best
! influence to throw around one of tender
years. But that was years ago and
i things have changed,
j But Harrv liked billiards and was
j determined to play the game. At first
Ihe utilised a corner of the loft of his
father's barn. There he covered a
smooth pine board with green Canton
flannel cloth, railed it with cotton-cov
ered lathes, converted an umbrella stick
into a cae and used larje marbles, suvh
I as the boys of those days called "Peb
bles. ' for the balls. It was an unique
' iuveutiou ami for a time Satisfied the
asperations of the embreyo champion,
but not for long.
Harry yearned for some real billiard
bails, just like the ones used on the
table in his father's hotel. His investi
gation led him to the knowledge of the
I fact thit the best balls were made of
J ivory, and he also learned that ivory
came from the tusks of elephants,
i Now, there were no elephants on the
i Cline farm in Lancaster county, but
; there was an old red and white cow
w 'th®, reputation of being rather meek.
If billiard balls were made from the
j tusks of elephjtits why not from the
\ horns of cowsT
At least so reasoned the young genius
ot the Clme family, and the reasoning
was accompanied by visions of his
heart "s desire. And so with the aid of a
rope and a saw and a neighbor's son
the meek and lowly member of the
Cb.ne dairy was deprived of her port
side weapon of defense.
And then the youthful Haw dis
covered that cows - horns could "never
be successfully used as billiard baits.
Harry s disappointment was as ,leer> as
his secret but deeper than both was the
mystery of the iost horn. The loss oT
this bit of headgear in no way affected
tne vaiue of the cow as a milk producer
but for years afterwards the whole
countryside spoke of the Cline's one
In time the elder Clin? withdrew his
objections to his sou taking up the
game and his exoertness soon won him
more than local fame.
Later in life he annexed the three
cushion and then in Jan
uary. 1911. at Orchestra hail. Chicago,
he won the 18:2 title from Calvin De
