Characteristic Feature of Opening Base
Bail Game of Season.
Horns Toot, Voice Hoot and 11 ay
er.t Hoot The Carolina Team to
Victory, Eight to Fire.
UCII enthusiasm, unre
stricted and uncontrolable
both on the part of the
players and onlookers?
was the characteristic
feature of the first ball
game of the season, played Thursday
afternoon, between The Carolina and
Village nines, the former team winning
8 to 5.
Horns tooted, voices rooted, and play
ers hooted, and there was hard hitting,
reckless base sliding, good, old-fashioned
kicking, and enough of the element
of uncertainty to keep interest at a high
pitch from the first inning until the last,
a perfect day contributing to the pleas
ure of all.
To be sure the teams were a bit rusty
from lack of practise, and they lacked
the snap which will come later from or
ganization, but there was the same spir
it of earnestness and friendly rivalry
which has been a feature of the past and
which gives amateur ball a special interest
and hair-lifting go.
The make-up of two excellent teams
is surely here and the series of games
which will be played through Febru
ary, March and April, are sure to be
an entertainment feature which will draw
together big crowds.
Ruggles who pitched for the winning
team, and Blake who occupied the box
for the losers, have both the right
sort of stuff in them and they divided
honors. The infield of both teams is ex
cellent and the field good; Gray, The
Carolina catcher, and Smith, the Village
short stop, both deserving special men
tion ; with Cullen of The Carolinas, and
Mulcahy of the Village team, as the talk
ing features; and an entertaining dis
postion on the part of all, to "assist" in
the umpiring.

Novel Weather Vane.
Famous trotting horses have often had
their memories perpetuated on weather
vanes, but to apply the same scheme to
sportsmen is a new wrinkle. This has just
been done at the Hands worth Golf Club,
England, where a large figure of Edward
Blackwell, runner-up to Walter J. Travis
in the British amateur championship of
1904, has been accurately reproduced.

In addition to the local games, it is
hoped that games may also be arranged

Cups for Dell Hoyn.
Mr. F. W. Kenyon has provided two
very attractive cups for a match play
golf contest between the bell boys of The
Carolina. There are two divisions of
four each, the first playing at scratch
and the second with handicaps, and
rivalry is keen in each division.
This tournament has now become an
annual event and is anticipated from
year to year by the contestants.
Opening Event in Season Tournament
Program Interests Many.
Dr. B. m. Hardy, T. HI. Greer and
Ztlrn. JLeonard Tuft Lead In
Various Divisions.
HE INTEREST manifest
ed in the first of the stated
tournaments of thelMstol
Club, shows very conclu
sively that this sport has
declined none since last
season and angurs well for the future.
Owing to unfamiliarity with the field
of entries, the committee found handi
capping practically out of the question
and the participants were made up into
three classes, A and B for the men, and
one class for the women, and the scores
in each class were close.
In class A, Dr. E. M. Hardy, of Rich
mond, and Herbert L. Jillson, of Worces
ter, fought it out to a close finish, Dr.
Hardy winning by the narrow margin of
four points with a string of three hun
dred and sixty-two.
The contest in class B, was also close
L. M. Greer, of New York, winning with
two hundred and sixty-eight, to two hun
dred and forty-three for A. A. Morris, of
Mrs. Leonard Tufts, of Boston, led the
women with one hundred and forty-six,
with Mrs. Hardy, of Richmond, second
in one hundred and fourteen, and Mrs.
Helen Leslie, of Pittsburg, third in one
hundred and thirteen.
