"Let me see," said Mr. Charles De Peys
ter Thompkinson as he drew on his gloves,
"first I will lead the conversation to the
subject of co-eds, and discharge my epi
grams. Then I will inquire about her al
bum, and dash off my impromptu verse. As
I am leaving I will ask her to accompany me
to the opera house next Friday evening."
At exactly 4 p. m. the door bell of the
palatial residence of Anemone Walker on
Spareribs Avenue, rang furiously under his
firm grasp. Anemone's mother appeared,
and he handed her a card bearing the inscription,

She took the card and re-entered. For a
few moments the sound of low voices was
hoard, as if in discussion, from the back par

saying briefly, "Not at home."

The Tennis Association is just now arous
ing a good deal of interest. November is
somewhat late in the year for a tennis tour
nament, but it is understood that one has
been arranged mainly in order to keep the
players in practice for the more important
tournament next spring.
The association was first organized in
1890, with three courts and a few over thirty
mombers. During the seasons of 1890-91 and
1891-92 the championship in gentlemen's
singles was held by Miss Louise Pound, lady
champion of the state, who was for two years
a member of the association, and who twice
represented the University in intercollegiate
gentlemen's singles. G. W. Gcrwig and
D. A. Haggard were the doubles champions
in 1890, and D. A. Haggard and H. E.
Guilmotte in 1892. In 1892 D. A. Hag
gard represented the University in the inter
collegiate tournament, and Haggard and
Guilmotte were again champions in doubles.
Last year the club seemed to have deterior
ated in enthusiasm, and though there was
some desultory playing, the courts were not
kept up, and no regular tournament was
held. The deciding games for the cham
pionship of the fall of 1893 are awaited with
The association has been reorganized this
fall, and strangely and laudably enough for
a university organization, has no constitu
tion. It has now thirty-three members, and
the three courts are all in good condition and
well laid out. The members have been prac
ticing steadily for the tournament, which,
beginning Tuesday, is to last six days. In
addition to what is expected from the stu
dents, some good playing is looked for from
tho faculty, represented by ProfB. Bowen
and Owens, and that tennis enthusiast and
expert, Prof. "Ward. It is safe to predict
that tho faculty will not be entirely absent
in tho "finals." Tennis enthusiasm is stead
ily increasing in tho University, and this fall
has reached a higher pitch than over before.
Tennis is essentially a college game, and
should occupy one of the highest places in
