Top it purposely if you wish prove it to yourself that you can't.
That means The PNEUMATIC lasts till you lose it.
Now Match it in play. See howr it Hies on the drive and how
true to the course. That's because the driver waked up that 800 pounds
of air, and because there were no cuts or gashes to deflect it.
Now we conic to the approach and the putt.
Notice that it's dead now all liveliness jone. That's because the light putt

Tired and Kodak Fiend Heap
ONDAY'S base ball frolic
of The Carolina young
people, "Skirts versus
Skirts," was one of the
most ludicrous and at the
same time entertaining
affairs of its character ever seen here.
Participants entered into the spirit of the
occasion with merriment and absolute
abandon, and a big company of onlookers
laughed and applauded, in turn, from the
first inning to the last.
The fun began when the "men" came
out of the hotel together, arrayed as only
men can array themselves when they don
women's clothes and try to look ridicu
lous. There was everything from the
dainty Japanese maiden to the rough and
ready golf girl in the lot, and they were
all, oh, so coy, with smile and ribbon, and
dainty lingerie and hosiery, lavishly dis
played. It was some minutes before the game
could proceed because everybody insisted
on having a good look at the strange col
lection, and kodak fiends appeared as if
springing out of the ground, but in due
season Umpire J. F. Shanley's stern voice
called "Play ball!" and scorer G. S.
Dexter called the first man to the bat.
The women took the field and the fun
began. Let the gentle reader imagine
men in skirts running bases, catching
with one hand, batting left handed and
throwing underhanded ; a clumsy, handi
capped lot. Let the gentle reader picture
fair women in white, with collars turned
in and sleeves rolled up, oi, so dainty;
thoroughly at home and enjoying the
sport, and one lias the game from first to
last. Desperate struggles, ludicrous tum
bles and no end of amusing situations
were the result, and all the while Old Sol,
low down in the wrest, beamed kindly on
the backs of the hot and tired men.
The men cracked out five runs at their
first turn at the bat, and felt well pleased,
but the women gained a lead of one with
six, at their try, making two and one in
the next two innings, to one each for the
men, winning nine to seven.
The make-up of the teams follows:
Men E. P. Challenger, Philadelphia,
catcher; A. 11. Gausler, Xew York,

llln Olney' Third Historical Talk on
Miss Elizabeth Olney delivered the third
of her historical talks at the Library,
yesterday morning, before an apprecia
tive audience, her subject being "Edward
I, the Greatest of the Plantngenets."
She said that no prince from the time of
the Norman Conquest to the present has
possessed such a well-rounded character.
Not only was he the first King of Nor
man blood to bear an English name, but
he illustrated the best traits of the typi
cal Englishman. He was a soldier of no
mean ability, a wise statesman and law
giver, a just ruler and a lover of peace.
In youth he was a knight-errant and a
crusader whose deeds revived the memory
of Piichard the Lion-hearted. In later
life he was the clear-sighted, practical
sovereign. He was a loving, obedient
son, a devoted husband and an affec
tionate father. The one blot upon his
reign was the expulsion of the Jews. His
treatment of Wallace was justifiable from
his own point of view.
Known both as "The English Justi
nian" and as "The Greatest of the Plan
tagenets," he is to be honored above all
for his life-long fidelity to the motto in
scribed on his tomb, "Pactum sma."
