J. D. Foot Makes New Record for the
Famous Eleventh Hole.
Sitting: on Slippery Cabin Hoof lie
Play llotli Hall and Mole Trap,
Slaking- Hole in Six.
I D. FOOT of live, N. Y., holds
unique record for the eleventh
hole, made famous by the "Tin Whis
In driving from the tee Mr. Foot
pulled the ball so that it fell between
the buildings, loeated at the right of the
putting green. In playing out the ball
struck a shed, caromed to the roof of a
cabin near by, rolled down and finally
caught in a mole trap.
Now, Mr. Foot was not only playing a
match, but his score was excellent and
in consequence, there was nothing for
him to do but climb to the roof of the
building and play the ball where it lay.
With the assistance of a caddy he
reached the roof, but he found the
shingles so slippery that he could not
secure a footing, so he sat down, ad
dressed the ball from this somewhat
ludicrous position, made a desperate
"swipe," and sent ball, mole trap and
all, flying towards the fair green. An
other shot laid the bull on the putting
green and two more put it down in six!
Much regret is expressed by those who
witnessed the proceeding that a snap
shot was not secured.

Famoui Golfer to Take Part in Eng--liali
Walter J. Travis, the amateur cham
pion, will sail for England soon to take
part in the amateur championship of
Great Britain, to be played at Sandwich
during the week of May 30, and probably
in the open championship fixed for the
same links on Wednesday and Thursday,
June 8 and 9. It will be the first time
that the holder of the American amateur
championship will play in the amateur
championship of Great Britain. The
lists will also include E. M. Jiyers, runner-up
for the last two years -in this
country, and F. Oden Ilorstmann, of
Charles B. Macdonald, the American
amateur champion of 1895, in speaking
at the United States Golf Association
meeting on Thursday night, pronounced
Travis four strokes better at thirty-six
holes than any other amateur in this
country. In view of this eminence in
the game, should Travis be not aflected
by the change of climate and the long
trip, the players here believe that he will
render a good account of himself at
When Cow Swallow the Hall Play
Justice Harlan of the Supreme Court,
is a devotee of golf. Recently on the
links of the Chevy Chase Club, he was
playing with a friend from Baltimore. It
appears that when Mr. Harlan's friend
drove from the third teeing ground, he
sliced the ball badly and sent it away to
one side. It stopped in front of a graz
ing cow which had wandered upon the
the links. When the Baltimorean came
up he was just in time to see the ball
disappearing into the bovine mouth.
And, when Mr. Harlan had made his
stroke, the friend, with many sounding
thwacks of his club, drove the beast to
the third hole. There he made her dis
gorge the ball and, neatly holing it, an
nounced that he had made the hole in
two strokes. Mr. Harlan calmly finished
the hole in seven and churned the hole.
"But I made it in two," protested the
Baltimorean, with a broad smile.
"Pardon me," replied Mr. Harlan,
blithely, "but you made it in thirty-
three. You hit that cow thirty-one
times, for I counted every stroke."
The Baltimore man conceded the hole.
