NJTW YORK, April I Any an nut or

eort to an amateur who plays It; whrn a
player cancels the rout or any part of It
by commercialising his goh ha ceases to
ba an amateur. The definition of an ama

cember, and while comprehensive enough.
It loses, force by not being retroactive. The
British definition Is 23 years old and so
carelessly woven that a coach and four
could ba driven through It. An attitude of
some golfers toward the ethics rf their
fame Is that of the boy at Sunday school.
"Is there any state worse than being" In
mortal sin?" ssked the teacher.
"Sure," burst out the . knowing Junior.
"It's being found out."
Another way of looking at It Is a story
of old rowing days at New Tork. Organ
ised In 1M8 and Incorporated In IMS, the
Atalanta Boat club lias flourished to this
day, but for nearly thirty years the races
and regattas were on the Hudson and
rowed In gigs. After the' opening of the
club house on the Harlem and the intro
duction of racing shell boats a member
brought one nf the old Battery professionals
to see a regatta.
"Well, what do you think of our ama
teurs now?" asked acme one after the
'It waa fine enough," said the veteran
of clinker built boats. "But these chaps
ain't amsteurs. Why, every one of them
Mttle Money Makes a Difference. .
It Is the golfers who "can row" but who
would like to make a little money on the
quiet through their skill In the game that
amateur definitions are aimed at. The ex
actions are not severe if a golfer Is willing
to pay as he goes. However, as the new
Amerlcsn definition gives a clean bill of
beslth to everybody to January 1 only,
those who may be called down for acts
committed or to be committed need sit up
and take notice.
In a game played by so many for pure
enjoyment alone It Is a pity that any in
dividual may have to be watched; yet
there are thorns In roses, canker in the
sweetest fruit and golf is more free from
half amateurs than any other athletic
recreation. All the golf courses of the
world, except the proportion owned by ln-dlvtdua'.s-vtst
pocket links by hotels or
in public parks, ere kept up by golfers who
are not professionals. They band them
selves Into clubs for convenience of man
agement. Every member who keeps his
dues end house charges psld up is an
amateur In good standing at his club and
may Join In Its competitions, team matches
or as a guest at invitation tournaments.
But should a person wish to play in the
amatsur championship or an open tourna
ment although standing well as his club
ba must have other qualifications to save

If aver a professional In any branch of
athletics a candidate may not become an

though famous in aviation and honored by
kings abroad, are debarred as golf

Golfer' Magazine of Chicago makes this
Under the new definition paid club sec
retaries, club superintendents, managers or
bookkeepers, merchants and salesmen of
golf supplies, manufacturers who do not
personally make golf clubs or other golf
articles are not profeeetonala. The super
intendent of a golf course who merely
hlrea and direct the work of the laborers
Is not a professions). A civil engineer who
surveys a golf course doen not profession
alise himself by such act. Heretofore he
did. The new definition Is. however, very
emphatlo regarding any one who sccepts
money or anv other consideration for flay
ing or teaching the game of golf. If A
bets B SO cents a hole on their match that
Is not playing for money in the sense of
an act constituting professionalism. The
purely clerical side of golf is not con
sidered as an act constituting professlonsl
Ism. The playing side when a considera
tion for the act for playing laV accepted Is
deemed professionalism, and Justly so. The
near amateur will have to be extremely
careful In the future In order to class
among the slmon pure amateurs.

lr. Wertenbacker Says: "Don't Use
. Iolsonous Depilatories,"
In treating superfluous hair It is of vital
Importance that the agent to be employed
afcould be absolutely non-poisonous, anti

When an assertion Is made by some un
reliable concern they take It as gospel

neither do they question or aak for any

British Rale on Amatenrs.
In Great Britain the definition of an
amateur Is shorter and founded on the
same basic principle regarding debarment
for accepting compensation for playing the
game. An amateur athlete In that coun
try hss been known to accept without pen
alty "appearance" money as well as trav
eling expenses, which a golfer could not do,
and also to take part In a resort tourna
ment as the guest of the hotel keeper. The
latter custom is dying out both In Oreat
Britain and the Riviera, for the hotel keep
ers have learned thst to exploit a plus
handicap man as a guest has the effect of
keeping many minus handicap players
away. The player who should receive
from five to ten strokes from the plus msn
have to meet him on even terms In every
match. As a consequence, the plus msn
not only gets free board, but also wins all
the best cups, while the minus men sre
not only out of pocket for expenses, but
alno put out of conceit in their golf so
when they learn any certain amateur of
Vast skill in cup winning Is at the resort
they Journey elsewhere. After all, one -e-sort
course In Oreat Britain or the RJvleii
Is much like another, the chief attraction
at any of them to a golfer , being to find
himself among men of his own playing
class. The British definition follows:
An smateur golfer Is a golfer who has
never made for sale golf clubs, balls, or any
other article connected with the game; who
1ms never carried clubs for hire after at
taining the age of lo years, and who lias
not carried clubs for hire at any time
within six years of the date on which the
competition begins: who has never received
any consideration for playing In a match
or for giving lessons In the game; and
who for a period of five years prior to
September 1, 188, has never received a
money prize In any open competition.
This definition' has not ' been changed
since 18S6, the year of the establishment
of the amateur championship there. Under
the strict letter of the rule should a club
in Oreat Britain put up a money prize, say
of $300, to be played for by amateurs at
an entrance fee of $5, the prize not to be
a sweepstakes, but to be awarded irrespec
tive of the entrance fees, neither the Win
ner nor any of the compeMtorajWould.be
disqualified. But to .have received a money
prise prior to September l, "l8SVwouia' dis
qualify! Public sentiment would disqualify
an amateur to play for a money prize and
also keep a club from offering one.
Revision is Needed.
A revision of the amateur definition- as
to this point would seem to be duo In Great
Britain. Such a change is imminent, and
oddly enough it Is In response to protests
made by professional golfers that it is to
be 'done. They objected In the first place
to British smateurs taking pay to lay out
a golf course. In this the trend of opinion
was against them, and it was held that
the amateur Is within his rights to improve
the technical aspect of a golf course with
out being open to the charge that he is
necessarily Infringing on the work of the
professional, for such work has only been
an adjunct of the professional's task 'and
never been the mainstay.
'The appeal to the British clubs govern
ing the amateur championship for a re
vision Is now based by the professionals
on the injury to their trade caused by the
alleged practice of members of clubs Join
ing together In a kind of syndicate to buy
golf balls at wholesale prices and to dis
tribute them at a price with which the
professionals cannot compete. The com
plaint is one of personal Interest only to the
professionals and has no sporting signifi
cance. ' There is nothing' in the American
or British definitions to debar any num
ber of amateurs entering into a trade syn
dicate. Some seasons ago the professionals
about Philadelphia in a petition asked the
golfers to buy balls and clubs from them
and not from dealers. The result waa sat
isfactory and the Issues involved appeal
to sympathy rather than to golf leglala-

None but those who have Investigated
the subject have the remotest Idea of the

statistics, however, reveal most appalltng
figures. In recent years more than
$4,000,000 worth of "opium prepared for
smoking" has been Imported annually.
Pause, reader, and consider for a moment
what this means. One single shipment of
opium that arrived at San Francisco during
the last year was valued at $631,000. . It
consisted of 810 cases, or 33.H0 pounds.
The government collected on the consign
ment a duty of $199,260. The Importer was
H. G. Playfalr of San Francisco, who is
only one of a number regularly engaged
in the Importation of the deadly drug.
Twenty years ago less than $500,000 worfh
of opium was brought Into this country
annually, and this Included not only opium
for smoking, but also every other form of
the poppy-extraot, suoh ss crude, medi

There are Chinese "Joints" and there are
"Joints" devoted exclusively to a white
clientele. Of the former It Is estimated
that there are approximately 1,000 scattered
throughout the United States. There are a
lesser number of the latter. The Chinese
opium dens are generally dark, dingy and
squalid. On each, bunk two almond-eyed
devotees of the drug may be seen "hitting
the pipe," as opium smoking is vulgarly
termed. The "Joints'' for white persons
are, on the contrary, usually very luxuri
ous. They are clean and are generally
beautifully finished. Oriental couches, dra
peries, divans, etc., being prominent. The
smokers, men and women, lie partially dis
robed on the couches as they Inhale tho
fumes from the opium pipe. -
Methods of Hitting the Pipe.
The smoking of opium is so -ery different
from tobacco smoking (although compara
tively few persons know It) that it may be
well to describe the pipe and other ap
paratus used, and the manner in which
opium is smoked. The opium "layout," as
It is called, consists of the pipe (or "yen
tahung"); the bowl of the pipe (or "yen
ow"); the lamp (or "yen dong"); the round
horn box for holding opium (or "hop toy");
the needles used for cooking the opium
over the lamp (or "yen hok "); and the
knives for cleaning out the pipe bowl (or
"yen gnow"). The opium pipe Js about two
feet long and is Invariably made of bamboo,
hollow, and about an Inch and a half thiol;.
One-third Its length there Is fastened Intn
i the pipe a howl made of 4jlay or of stone
i nis Dcv.i is covered, save for a very small
hole (the thickness of a pin) In the center
of the top.
Opium Is always smoked In a reclining
position. The smoker lights the lamp, and
on the joint of one of the needles (they
much resemble crochet needles, tapering st
one end nnd flsttened out at the other)
takes from the "hop toy" a little opium
the u lie of a pea. He holds this above tho
flame of the lamp, and It slowly "cooks."
In cooking, the opium bubbles and slxzles
slightly like burning sealing wax does. The
cooking takes all the moisture from the
opium, which before It is cooked in con
sistency snd color much resembles treachle.
While the smoker Is cooking his pill every
once In a while he "chlos" it thst Is to sy,
lie rolls It over the bowl of the pipe sgaln
and again with a twirling motion of the
fingers holding the needle, until finally the
pill assumes the shape of a little cone.
Thes the pipe bowl Is slightly heated at the
orifice, and the point of the needle Is thrust
Into It up tyhe pellet of opium. The pellet
sticks to the bowl, and the needle is with
drawn. Now the pipe Is ready to be
smoked. This, also, is a curious onratlon.
'J,e smoker, still reclining, places the end
of the pipe to his lips. and. holding the
other end with the bowl over the flame,
draws In a deep bresth. The pill of opium
sissies over the flame and Is drawn Into the
pipe In smoke, and the smoke from ths
pipe to the smoker's mouth or lungs. When
one pill is consumed ss many more are
cooked and consumed a ths smoker de
sires. The sverage opium smoker consumes
about eight of these pills at one esslo,n.

smoke Into their mouths in short puffs
and blow It out again without the smoke
going any further. The latter take a very
long Inhalation of the smoke, drawing It
deep Into the lungs and then exhaling it
through the nostrils. The latter method Is,
of course, the most harmful.

sembles a bedroom night lamp, peanut oil

the large cities of the United States have,

Small private rooms, $2.50.

"Extra" private room on the floor above
the "general" parlor" 15. (In this room you
may lay away for twenty-four hours if
you wash, with the privilege of ordering
breakfast there if warned.
A card of "dope" (or hop) signifies an
ordinary playing card on which some opium
has been smeared. It is used In many
opium Joints in p!a?e of the "hop toy."
Kasy Victims of the Dope.
Women are easy victims to tho "fascina
tions" so called of ppium smokers. They
become devotees far more easily than do
men, and many women privately Indulge
In "hop" smoking In the seclusion of their
own apartments. It Is estimated that In
New York City alone several hundred
women are habitual smokers of the drug
In the privacy of their homes.
There are many absurd ideas prevalent
about the smoking of opium. One Is that
"exquisite dreams," "di'Hijhtful visions,"
etc.. follow the use of the drug. Nothing
of the sort does follow. The smoking of
upturn brings a sense of calmness, of rest,
of tranquillity and content. That Is all.
Another fallacious nollou Is that It brings
about unconsciousness. It never dors. Still
unother erroneous Idea Is that the smoking
of the pill by a novice produces stupor or
semi-coma. It dors nothing of the sort.
The first smoke of a novice usually results
fn naust-a. Generally half a dosen pills, at
least, must be smoked to bring about sny
effect on the smoker. The effect Is pleas
ant. Being practiced, as it is. in secret, the
general public has hsd no idea of the ex
tent of opium smoking In the United Stairs.
Only some few students of the subject
have been cognisant of the sppslllng In
roads the oriental habit has made in this
country. The statistics In this article will
give some little Idea of It.
