rVO brilliant rounds con
cluded the sixth annual
St. Valentine's Golf
and one name stands out
sharp and clear in local
golf annals as the result of them, II. W.
renin of the Merion Cricket and Golf
club of Philadelphia.
In the first round Henry C. Fownes of
the Oakmont Golf club was the contes
tant for honors, the home green deciding
it one up in the Merion player's honor,
but the match of the week and the sen
sation of the tournament was Mr. Per
rin'8 defeat of Walter J. Travis, former
international and American champion,
in the semi-finals, three up and two to
Mr. Travis had the best of it at the
turn being two up, but the Pennsylvan
ian rallied coming in, rounding out a par
thirty-seven to a bad forty-two for his op
ponent, and the sixteenth green decided
it in his favor. Mr. Travis was in bad
form on the tee as is illustrated by the
fact that he drove in the pond on the
tenth, the bunker on the eleventh, and
half topped his twelfth and thirteenth
tee shots. The special feature of Mr.
Perrin's play was his spectacular ap
proach work and at the critical stage of
the game, the twelfth, thirteenth, four
teenth and fifteenth holes, he went down
in two when lying some distance from
the green. Mr Travis also suffered the
loss of no less than two holes by missing
short putts ; his strongest hold on the

The match with Mr. Fownes was
equally keen but not quite as fast, the
medal play scores thirty-six and eighty
nine. At the turn Mr. Fownes was two
up, but Mr. Perrin had evened the score
on the twelfth. He halved the thirteenth,
won the fourteenth with along putt, and
gained the lead which he maintained,
with a halved hole on the fifteenth and
sixteenth. Both played badly on the
seventeenth, halving in four, with not
much better on eighteenth, a halve in
seven, giving the match to Mr. Perrin.

MERRY OLD MAN IN THE MOON
Novel Surprises Entertaining Carolina

ERTAINLY the merriest
J of the season's more f or
I T mal dances was Saturday
A laf evening's St. Valentine's
Cotillion at The Caro
,, ina, replete with nov
elty, surprise and variety, and followed
from the opening march to the closing
number with keen interest by a company
of onlookers which occupied every
available seat in the music hall and
blocked the entrance passageway. De
lightfully informal, it was, nevertheless,
one of the dressiest affairs of the season,
many new and strikingly beautiful gowns
appearing for the first time.
The hits of the evening were several
surprises, among them a "frog who
would a wooing go," in which six noisy,
hopping young men wearing huge frog's
heads, were "fished for" by six young
women, and "my sweetheart's the man
in the moon" in which young men wear
ing moons (full and otherwise) were
claimed as partners by young women
wearing miniature moon rosettes, each
bearing a number corresponding with
one worn by the man.
The cake walk also won round after
round of applause and while the partic
ipants were a bit slow in starting, no
doubt overcome by the size and beauty
( ?) of the cake which rested in the cen
ter of the hall, once in action they de
monstrated very clearly that "cullud
people" have nothing to brag about over
"white fulks." Selected finally, by the
committee of judges (Mesdames J. D. C.
Rumsey, John Smithers and Carl Gilder
sleeve) as being the best Sir. Spen
cer Waters of New York and Miss Har
riet Horton of WiUiamsport, Mr. E. L.
Scofield, Jr., of Stamford and Miss
Priscilla Beall .of Uniontown, and Mr.
Paul Gardner of Chicago and Miss Ruby
Sewa.ll of Kansas City, were called out
to walk again, the applause of the crowd
to decide the final result which was an
nounced as "a tiethe cake to be cut !"
This, however, was not an easy task as it
proved to be only a tin pan, turned bot
tom side up and lavishly decorated ! The
frosting, however, was real and the con
testants each carried away souvenirs,
