The Raleigh News and Observer says
Senator Stone administered a well de
served rebuke to Theodore Eoosevelt.
The tit-mouse rebukes the eagle. The
tadpole rebukes the whale. Wonderful!
In introducing our journal to the dis
criminating public this year, we gave
promise of unraveling several mysteries
that had puzzled the world for some time.
It is now come time to deliver. It is
not our purpose to shock our readers
with too many revelations at once. So
we will defer the amazing story of nerve
and adventure which is bound up in the
secret of how the United States obtained
the code and key to the confidential dis
patches of the German government to the
amiable Count Bernsdorf, and confine
ourselves this issue to explaining exactly
why it is that Josephus Daniels remains
Secretary of the Navy.
The answer is that in spite of all his
extraordinary ladylike maneuvers, and a
penchant for economy that is at present
responsible for the crime that we are
boasting about having Destroyers in
process, of building instead of just fin
ishing the job of exterminating the
undersea pirates, he is a very successful
secretary. He has a real ordnance de
partment that has supplies the ordnance.
He has a real quartermaster department,
that has supplied the clothing and equip
ment. He has all th0 fleet we have in
commision, and doing its job to the
queen's taste. And he got busy to rec
tify the patent absurdities of our tra
ditional attiude (which incidentally used
to be his own) and has been sawing wood.
I have no doubt but that the explana
tion of this mystery will astonish a great
many of our readers. It astonishes your
editor. It almost killed a complete army
corps of critics. It is against all reason
and probability. It is miraculous. But
it is the simple and blessed truth.

You will recollect that among the three
great mysteries of the World, by uni
versal consent the most, inexplicable was
why so many subscribers and readers of
that remarkable and entertaining peri
odical, The Pinehurst OutlooTc, failed to
send their dollar for their season's sub
scription. Undoubtedly this is an ex
treme case of mass mental aberration.
For it is a matter of common observation
that no amount of persuasion can force
a single man who has ever subscribed to
the paper to relinguish it. And we have
often marvelled at the universal impulse
to sit down and make out a check for
one dollar, which invariably attacks every
recipient of the paper. In the face of
these accepted facts it is baffling to ex
plain how we happen to have so many
unpaid subscriptions on our list. Realiz
ing the acute interest the public have in
this matter we are employing a psycholo
gist of National reputation to explain
the phenomenon and expect to present a
solution that will stagger the headlines
shortly. Meantime we are able to state
with authority that the rumor that the
I. W. W. are responsible is absolutely
A Maiden' Prayer
Boys are the living emblems of noise
and danger. My greatest dread con
cerning a future existence is the possi
bility of there being boys in Heaven.
And in this life the things I dread most
are fire, burglars, runaways, mice, small
pox and boys. My sympathy with boys
is usually akin to my sympathy with
thunder storms and pirates. In passing
boys upon the street I am always forced
to hold my breath in terror, expecting
to be struck by a baseball, or bat or
stone, green apple or snow ball, accord
ing to season. Only in color and in
clothing can I recognize any difference
between boys and wild Sioux Indians. I
am in ' sympathy with law and order,
whereas, to a boy law and order are but
bars to freedom. I always have some
good reason for believing that the high
est ambition of every normal boy under
twelve years of age is to become an in
fluential outlaw. And Oh Lord, please
send me a husband, and if he dies send
me another, and if he dies send me an
other and if he dies send me another,
and if he dies send me another.
Noted Tennl Professional
Douglas L. Hilton, the tennis pro
fessional, has arrived to take charge of
the tennis courts, to conduct the tour
naments and give lessons at the Pine
hurst Country Club.
Hilton stands head and shoulders at
the head of his profession. He is not
only master of the game in its finest
points but he has an unusual knack and
capacity of imparting his skill. It is fair
to say upon his record that there is no
better coach in this country. During
the summer he is retained by the Piping
Rock Country Club of Locust Valley,
and has been expert at a great many of
the major tennis centres in the East,
including the Crescent Athletic Club,
the Essex Country and the Atlantic City
Yacht Club. He is known on the courts
from Newport to Australia.

The AdvertUer Banquet
Even without the pop of the gin fizz
and the blare of horns and rattlers, there
was still enough pop to make the Annual
Banquet of the Advertisters seem like
days of yore. Led by Col. H. H. Tread
well, newly elected President, the host
marched into the final gala of the week
And then the fun began. Lou Hamilton
known the world over, as the only man
who can make toasts at such an occasion
without smiling, presided as toastmaster.
Uncle Davis McK Lloyd said he knew no
reason why he should be elected again
as Vice President of the sociable frater
nity except that he had more vices than
anyone else. The strains of a march
came slowly through the hall, known to
everyone and everywhere as Sousa's
March, while John Philip Sousa himself
was clapped and cheered as he acknowl
edged the tribute. About this time the
music got to tangoizing and eating was
forgotten while everybody lightfooted to
the tune of "Leave it to Jane." Old
and young, weak and feeble, they went
in and out the tables like the winds of
dawn. Grotesque and unique were the
hats and fandangles that were worn dur
ing this hilarious evening. After all
had feasted to their heart's content, the
assembly moved to the ball room where
dancing was again resumed. However,
even the best of times have an ending
and it is ever thus that the orchestra
gives up to Home Sweet Home, and the
Banquet of the Advertisers came to a
Mr. and Mrs. James Barber gave a
unique and entertaining party to the
ladies of the Advertising Golf League at
the Barber Estate last Saturday. For
some time now Mr. Barber has been
laying out and perfecting a miniature
golf links winding in and out among the
shrubbery and paths of his place a kind
of glorified and elongated putting green,
with obstacles to be negotiated with a
well pitched mashie shot, and bends and
curves calling for nice and discriminat
ing slices and pulls.
Here a tournament was held by the
ladies preliminary to tea and the after
math. Mrs. Morrill negotiated the course
in the lowest score, closely followed by
Mrs. Daniels and Mrs. J. A. Moore.
Tribute to Mr. Monypeny
Our readers will be interested in a
letter recently received by Mrs. Florence
Barber - Monypeny from Lady Arthur
Paget, chairman of American-British-French-Belgian

daughter of James Barber, a leader on
the Pinehurst links and in the life of the
