The marvelous success of IIERriCIDE has
caused others to put preparations on the mar

them are dangerous. There is but one prepara

Falling Hair and Baldness.
Dandruff is the cause of falling hair, thin
hair, brittle hair, lusterless hair and, finally,
baldness. "Destroy the cause, you remove the

and grow luxuriantly. Herpicide is also one
of the most -delightful dressings. Allays itch

For Success With
Before starting treatment with HERPICIDE,
the hair and scalp should be washed thoroughly,
and regularly about once in ten days there
after. The best' soap for that purpose is HERPI
CIDE SOAP (aseptic tar.) There is not one
case reported where persistent and proper use
of HERPICIDE has not cured dandruff, stopped
falling hair and thickened thin hair.

Omaha Players Await Toraal Opening of
Season on Links.

Field Haa Extended Grounds
and Balldlaa-a oa
Amnio Scale,
Next month will bring with It the regular
opening of the gelf season, so It la now
but two weeks or lesa till this loved aport
.will be 03 In all lta fervor and fanaticism.
As usual, tbe new reign of "King Kaddy"
will be ushered in with elaborate tune
tions, for 11 la a feature of golf that It
la used aa a vehicle for more social cele
orations than any sport known. In Omaha
all due reverence will be paid thta trad I
tlon, and both tbe Country club and the
Field club are planning opening affairs well
. calculated to start tbe season's play on
lta way with an impetus of Interest and
conviviality that will help out more than
little In tiding the devotees over tbe
totter portion of the season.
May. I is the time set for the Country
Club opening, and It will be an affair of
many ramifications. To those who are la
the game for the golf Itself the most In
terestlng feature of opening day will be
the completion of the many improvements
on the links. Last year the club had a
good course, but there waa very little be
Idea the ministrations of nature Itself to
make It so. This season, however. Country
club habitues will have tbe pleasure of
feeling a share la the possession of aa
completely equipped and aa modern
course as the most fastidious rould desire.
Of course tbe most important thing In
the way of Improvements' Is the piping,
This is a big task, entailing the expend!
ture of several thousands of dollars, and
when the golfer contemplates tbe fact that

Work on thla is now well toward com
pletion. The course at present presents
the aspect of a battlefield on which a Lilli
putian enemy has been advancing by the
ilg-zag trench method. Ditches traverse
tbe links In all directions, leading to the
different greens and almost all of the pip
ing la now down and ready for use. Some
delay has been caused recently because
the workmen ran out of pipe and have had
to wait until more could be procured.
This system of water works la being
very carefully and cleverly laid, and no
place In the course do the trenches crose
live playing ground except in a few apota
where it is absolutely essential to do this
In order to tap the greens. Ail the ap
proach pipe la laid in dead ground, either
where a ball should never light. If prop
erly driven, or between the playing lines
of the course.
Players who grew really efficient last year
and conceived the notion that the Country
club course was growing a little too easy
for them will be rejoiced thla season to
see tbe Improvement that have been estab
lished in tbe way of new bunkera and other
bastards. These are many per cent more
difficult than what was seen on the course
laat season and no one can complain that
a trip around the eighteen hole this year
will be too much of a cinch to be good fun,
A few of tbe more expert golfers visited
the links one day this week to have a view
of tbe Improvements and they were
astounded at the enormous mounds of earth
that loomfcd up between certain of the
holes. Wtere last year was a small trench
with a three-foot wall of dirt behind It
there now looma a barricade that will take
a boy all day to climb. Those playera who
laid away their lofters last season because
there was ne real use for them can get
them out again now, for their mid-Irons
will no longer serve the purpose. It will
take a stick with a real steep dip to fat
to put a ball over one of those bunkers
from a lie that Is within tbe ten-yard limit
of it.
The course will be all ready by May 3
and tournaments In twosomes and four
somes for men and for women, as well aa
a few mixed affairs, will keep the golfers
busy all day long. As usual, the morning
will be given over to tbe women and In
the afternoon tbe men and tbe mixed
couples will do their little stunts. Then at
nlgbt will come tbe dance, the first one
of the season. Thus will Country clubbers
beguile tbe hours of their opening day.
Not until three weeks later, on May 23,
will the Field club give lta Initial soiree
for 1902. Ttal is because the extensive
remodeling of the club bouse and the erection
of tbe new buildings planned cannot be com
pleted until shortly before that time. Ever
since the frost left the ground vork has
been hustled on the buildings and the
directors are sow satisfied thst all will be
well within a month at the eutslde.
Improvements and changes In last year's
club house are now finished. The wing
which was used far bowling has been
stripped of Its alleys and converted Into a
huge locker room with accommodatlona for
all the possible membership of the club.
This Is a vast improvement .ever the
cramped locker service of last year. The
new building, meanwhile. Is fast taking
oa the semblance of what It Is Intended
to be a dancing pavtlten and all-around
summer loafing place. It la rising Just
west of the club house and the cootract
for Its erection promises its completion lu
every particular by May 15. vIn the base
ment will be four bowling alleys; also
ample accommodations for raddles and pla
boys. Oa the first floor Is tbe large danc
ing area and to one end la a little sitting
room with a huge fireplace.
The fencing of tbe grounds la bow com
pleted, pickets being substituted for the
wire where the fence borders the tennis
courts and base ball grounds. Last year's
golf course has been enclosed and Is now
guarded with "keep off" signs while the
seeding gets a start. Meanwhile golfers are
using the new tract of forty acres to the
west, nine holes being laid out there.
About June 1, or a little later, the two
tracts will be combined Into one elghteen
hole course, which will be the only golf
ground of standard length in Omaha. In
structor Sherwood expects to have more be
ginners than be can handle this season.
The Field club opening will be very
elaborate. Everything In the way of sum
mer Joy Is planned, song, dancing and
women, golf, base ball and bowling, or
chestral music, paeans of praise generally
to the spirit of the springtime.

Now that the season of the Omaha Bowl
ing league is concluded the rollers are
cogitating on what to do next, and a con
siderable variance of opinion haa been un
earthed by the general discussion. Some
players are in favor of more contests, tour
naments and matches of different descrip
tions; others flatly oppose any continua
tion of formal play. Tbe proposition of
holding a one-man tourney and the other
of having a series of match games between
two teams, to be known aa the Americans
and the Germans, have been the Immediate
causes of the argument.
Those who urge more bowling asy that
for the real enthusiasts It Is an all-the-year-round
game, anyway, and that there
is no danger of those who are devoted
to the sport growing tired of It. Mean
while, they say. tbe ones who do not feel
so keen after it can drop out for the sum
mer if they wish, and they will come back
again next fall, while the "fans" will be
there all the time. Just as hot after the
alley game as ever, and anxious for the
beginning of another winter of general
On the other hand. It Is said that there
is a time for bowling, as for all things, and
If the devoteea of the sport in Omaha are
wise they will drop It flat now that the
season has ended. ,
"It Is for the best Interests of the game
to let It die here this summer," said one
well known crack. "If we keep up thla
tension all aummer, with repeated and
contlnuoua tournaments and contests, it
will kill the interest In bowling In Omaha,
and next fall will And us la deplorably
weak standing compared to what we have
been. You see, the seaaon baa been some
thing fierce here all w-rnter, and I do not
believe the game Is sufficiently estsblished
even her to stand murh more without a
reat. As a matter of fact. It I creed the
local alleys I would close tbem up tight
during July and August at least. It would
pay, for the boys would start in again
with moro than redoubled vigor when cool
weather came."
A sentiment such as tbls, which has pre
vatled quite generally, has militated some
what against the one-man tournament
scheme and has caused a delay in the ar
rangementa for it. The situation Is now
such thst the idea may be dropped entirely,
though that ta not yet certain. Dad Hunt
ington, who is chiefly Interested In lta
launching, says that the tourney may be
started off thla week. His Idea Is to have
sixteen entries and to play each man
twenty games of ten frames each. By
using four alleys each night and playing
two nights a week the tourney could be
bowled off la four weeks. Although nearly
a doteo of the most prominent bowlera la
thelty have signified their willingness to
participate, no entry list has yet been com
pleted or closed. It seems certain, how
ever, that if the affair Is started It will ba
a fast and keen tournament, for the men
who would go in are "high rollers," one
and all, from the arbor vita standpoint.
Meanwhile the series of games between
the German and American teams is prac
tically decided upon, and this should prove
as interesting a match as was ever rolled
In Omaha. On the German team are found
such men as Al Krug, Beselln, Zarp, Rolls
and Weber, all top-liners, while the Ameri
cana comprise Individual Champion Emery,
Denman, Bmead, Clarkson and Hunt When
such pastmasters as these meet in a
bowling contest there will be aomo lively
alley work, and It .would not be surprising
if a handful of local records were laid
away during the course of the tourney, both
short and long distance and Individual and
The Idea Is to have nine games of ten
frames each, divided Into three series of
three each. Three are to be played on
Clark'a alleys, three on Lents ft Williams
alleys and the team which lead at that
point of the tourney will have the privilege
of choosing the location for the final round
of three games.
It Is expected that this tournament will
begin this week or next week at the latest
Should it prove a auccess others may fol

now circulating in the bowling atmosphere,

Promise of Last Year Redeemed by

nit of tbe Game.
If earllness signifies eagerness, then the
lawn tennis season in Omaha for 1902
promises to be the keenest since the palmy
days of the game In the early '90s. Here
it is. still April, with the weather rang
ing from a simoon to a symphony, and the
temperature varying from that of Indian
summer on one day to that of chill spring
on the next, and yet several tennis nets
were stretched last week on different
courts, and the familiar cries of "deuce,"
"vantage out" and "thirty love" were
heard in several different neighborhoods
during the late afternoons and the early
evenings of the pleasanter days.
This would seem to Indicate that the
regeneration of tennis, begun laat year,
waa to prove a reality, not a mere state
ment, a permanent renewal of Interest, not
a temporary fluttering of fickle athlette
fancy la that direction. In 1901, when,
after the game had lain aa good aa dead
for live or six years, a sentiment toward
Its re-establishment In popular favor
seemed to be arising. It was difficult to
persuade many people that thla waa actu
ally the case. They were unable to under
stand how a aport of this nature could
revive when once dropped, and they were
loath to accept any of the signs that such
waa to be the fact aa having any real
meaning of that kind.
But tbe game' came out with the begin
ning of tbe spring season and waxed with
the growing warmth of the weather. One
by one the predictions that such and such
a number of courts were to be rebuilt and
others ia other placea newly located were
verified by the deed, and by the time June
he'd come around the athletes realised that
they were In the midst of a fairly ener
getic summer of tennis playing. From a
city of no courts Omaha had sprung la
one season to a place dotted with acorea
of them.
This waa Intensely pleasing to the tennis
enthusiasts, for whom no slow-going golf
nor arduous base ball could ever replace
the swiftest and keenest game of them all,
Their sole anxiety was that the reaalma
tlon might prove only temporary, a mere
final rally before the death rattle. It w
realised that one year could not tell the
tale, that It remained for 1902 to decide
whether or not tennis waa to stay. They
realized also that 1901 would yield a vast
Influence in determining the Judgment which
1902 would give In the matter.
So every nerve was bent by tennis play.
era to keep things hot All aummer long
tennis was played and played, tournaments
were contested, everything possible waa
done to keep the game a live Issue. From
the first of the season to the last there
was no abatement. The reward has come,
So many new recruits were enlisted by
thos methods that they, with the old ones,
promise aa army of tennis devotees this
seaaon, and with such backing the game's
success Is almost assured already in Omaha.

About the first courts to get la operation
this spring were the Shrlner piny grounds
at Twenty-sixth and Harney streets. Tlay
on them haa been going on for a week. Not
all three of the courts are in use yet, but
the two to the went have already felt the
rubber footstep. The six grand clay courts
at the Omaha Field club will be better than
ever this season, not because of any Im
provement In surfacing or grade, for that
would be well nigh Impossible, but because
more room has been given at the north end
of the row. Last year the high bank which
marked that boundary was a little too close
to the back court lines for comfort. Things
were crowdsd when the play was In the
back court, especially In returning vicious
serves from tbe other side, to handle
which It is necessary to play considerably
behind the extreme back line. Then, sgaln,
an opponent in the south court, with a
tendency to lobbing or playing the back
line a great deal, could make It very un
pleasant for the man in the north end, for
every ball which he sent well back meant
cramping in order to play it back across
the net In good style. Now, however, the
courts are to be moved bodily several yards
further south, giving almost enough room
between the back lines and the bank to put
In another court.
One feature that will bring tennis out
earlier thla year is the fact that most of
the courts are In fair condition to start
with. Even a lazy man will have no excuse
for not beginning early. Last season it wa
ainerent, for that summer marked the first
stab at the game in years and the old
courts were In such bad shape from long
disuse that fixing them up was as hard
work as making new ones. When they
were Anally ready, however, they were In
such good condition and were kept In such
good condition that this spring finds them
needing but very little work besides lining.
In fact, the early players who have been
out the past week went on the courts with
out having them touched by knife or drag.
