the Tin Whistles were di
vided against themselves
in two camps, composed
of two teams of nine
pr jfr t champions each, come to
fv JJra do battle from many
famous courses over the
land. Lined up under
the gory banner were E. H. Hunt,
from AVoreester, C. S. "McDonald of
Toronto, II. A. Waldron, Agawam Hunt,
II. W. Ormsbee, South Shore Field, E. C.
Shannon 2d hailing from Brockport,
.lames McNab from the home of all golf,
('. B. Hudson, North Fork, Dr. M. W.
Mnrr, Woodland, and J. M. Robinson, the
Harbor Beach expert.
Over against these in Blue array stood
('. L. Becker, the scribe, as mighty with
the putter as with the pen; Spencer
Waters of the National Club; Col. R. A.
Swigert, Palmetto; J. D. C. Rumsey, the
Brooklyn player; J. R. Goodall from
IVjlerive; F. C. Abbe, the Bethlehem
champion who was to turn the tide; Rob
ert Hunter, many times winner on the
1'inehurst links; Tom Kelley, destined to
beat bogey four up, and the Rev. T. A.
Cheatham from Pittsburgh.
Watching the returns toward evening in
the Club House had all the interest and
variety of an election night. The Reds
lrew first blood when Hunt came in one
up on Becker. This was followed by
another hard blow for the Blues by the
arrival of C. S. McDonald with three to
spare over Spencer Waters. And it looked
as though a walk over was in order when
Waldron hung Swigert 's scalp, four up,
in the Red's tepee. Rumsey stemmed the
tide, but lent little encouragement by
t icing Ormsbee.
The tide turned with the Shannon
oodall match. The Bellerive golfer
chalked up two on the empty column of
his team, leaving the score 8 2 in favor
f the Reds. And then came Abbe, "not
least but honored of them all" eleven up,
and the rest was merely good measure.
C. B. Hudson held Hunter to an even
score, but Kelley, no longer to be denied,
left the doctor six holes to the bad, and
the Rev. T. A. Cheatham filled up the
hitter cup with two more against Robin
son, leaving the score twenty-one to eight,
and the expense on the once hopeful
Red Warriors.
T. A. Kelley came in for the principle
honors of the day. He not only had the
best gross score of the contest, finishing
in 80, but he won the prize in the play
against Bogey. With a handicap of eight
he was four- up on Bogey. J. R. Goodall
and R. H. Hunt tied for second place,
both finishing in Bogey exactly.
All four champions, however, carried
chalked up as the best yet.
The scores and handicaps and results
are given herewith :
Monday brought P. W. Whittemore
and Mr. Cheatham into the limelight. It
was four ball medal play combined scores
and combined handicaps, with a gold
medal for the best net score of the. day.
The Whittemore Cheatham combination
left the field in the dim distance, and
romped home with the silver plate in 165,
which read in the light of a handicap of
eleven left them only 154, eight holes to

G. M. Howard, the Halifax player,
achieved the greatest individual triumph
in the day 's play with the lowest net card
recorded in the tournament. His score
of 73 carried away the gold medal. This
achievement was not less noteworthy than
Whittemore ?s gross score of 76 on the
number three course, which we have
the good over the second couple, C. B.
Hudson of North Fork and H. A. Wal
dron from the Agawam Hunt. These
twain had looked with longing eyes upon
the principle trophies, but could not
bridge the chasm.

A Resolute Spirit and a Better
Acquaintance With Every Man
Th Jteault of Hie lied and
Illutt Campaign of I lie
Hoard of Trade
THE Sandhill Board of
Trade is four thousand
dollars richer today than
it was a week ago, and
the community probably
richer a thousand fold.
Once the neighborhood
has become a unit in
determination to make
its own destiny and train its own citizens
and is willing not only to join the team
for the common good but to put up a fair
share of the coin from the Christmas
stocking under the hearth, its salvation
is secure.
This, our happy land, needed money.
It needed it for schools and fairs and
roads, for experts in the arts of husban
dry and to demonstrate the ultimate
blessings coming from white paint on
German siding and sycamore trees lining
the old lane and the Capitol Highway. It
needed it to pay the fare of prophets and
leaders to come here and preach to us the
doctrines of economy and agriculture and
to provide music and instill the love of
song and poetry in the hearts of the peo
ple ; to supply our children with the maxi
mum training present methods have to
provide, and to organize our industries, as
they are organized in civilized countries.
It is to the everlasting credit of the
entire section that every hamlet and cross
roads, every mechanic and millionaire,
every man jack within the circle of the
Allied towns harkens to the call.
Everyone knows how two teams were
selected under the leadership of Frank
Page and Leonard Tufts, and how these
two champions of organized efficiency
drafted at will from the population a
cohort of lieutenants and their benzine
buggies to canvas the countryside and get
the sinews of war. The intimate story of
the campaign can never be told. It is the
Btory of the devotion and progressive spirit
of a whole people. It was a great sym
posium of the ideas, ambitions and hopes
of the Sandhill Tribe. Wherever the can
vasser went he was met with the convic
tions of his neighbors upon the principles
of right country development, with sug
gestions of work to be done, and improve
ments needed, with volunteers, men on
