NEW TORK. April ti.-One of the new
canons of (rolfing style -which no heretls
has yet d.tred to dispute Is that s hlch ad
vises the player to stand with his ball
more nearly in line with his right toe, as
the distance to be covered by the shot
diminishes1. Nowadays almnst every one
drives with the ball opposite a spot half
way between his heels, or even two or
three Inches tn front. But he plays his
cleek shots with the . hall rather farther
back,' and In approach play usually stands
so ' that the ball Is almost opposite his
right heel.
All this Is most orthodox. But It Is some
what less usual to Inquire why It should
be so.' However, does not the answer to
this make plain the whole problem of
stance, which Is pimply a matter of equi
librium and depends upon one simple rule:
However, you stand, you must have your
weight so distributed that your center of
gravity Is opposite the ball at the moment
of hitting it.
The reason Is not difficult to see, and,
perhaps, It may be a source of.enllght
ment as well, as a help, to. have again
brought to the notice of those golfers who
are In the habit of pulling or slicing badly
one fundamental Idea.
An ordinary golf club la constructed so
that if the ball Is to be hit squarely the
shaft must', at that moment of Impact be
at right angles to the direotlon In which
the' player wishes his ball to travel; that
Is to say, the player's hflnd must be op-
poslte the .ball. If they are not the club
face, as It comes In contact with the ball,
cannot possibly be at right angles to the
line-of flight,- apd a glancing-blow,-re
sulting In a pull or slice. Is the Inevitable
. It Is, however, easy for a golfer to prove
for himself how the natural position of the
hands. In holding any two-handed' weapon
such as a golf club, depends upon the dls
trlbutton .o the . weight of the body. Let
him clasp his hands In front of him, then
shift his weight on to his left foot and note
how promptly his arms fall', forward, like
some delicate pendulum, in accordance
with the change. Contrariwise, If he throws
his weight on. to. his right foot and at
tempts at the same time, to keep his hands
well to. the left as if he were going to play
"off his left toe," fie will realise that the
position Is one of constraint In which a
powerful stroke Is Impossible.
It Is this factor which makes It so awk
ward to play from an uneven or iasaeure
stance. The player's weight has to be dis
tributed differently frem usual, owing to
the necessity of obtaining a firm footing
and the natural position of his hands being
thus altered to play his ordinary stroke
becomes Impossible. Every one has ex
perienced the fact that where some hillock
or hollow In the ground prevents htm from
resting the same proportion of weight as
usual upon each foot, though the stance
Is otherwise thb same, he feels that he
simply cannot play the stroke according
to his accustomed method; often he Is con
strained to play In some fashion quite un
triedand with complete success. Because,
as we must know, the most Important
thing IS hot that he should stand In a par
ticular way, but. -that stance and swing
should be " suitable to each other. Golf,
like fencing and other sports In which the
stroke demands great nicety of' aim, de
mands that the poise of the body be reck
ored as of the utmost importance,
Driving with the ball well forward and
driving with It as far back as possible
have each certain advantages, but neither
is the slightest good unless the player Is
standing so that the natural position of
the hands, that position Into which they
will fall at the lowest point of the stroke,
h exactly opposite the ball. It Is hardly
. . '
' eeessary to prove that It Is when the
hands are in this natural position that the
blow attains Its greatest force.
In theory It Is quite sufficient that the
body should be properly balanced at the
moment of striking the ball. Accordingly
swaying the body Is not necessarily fatal to
a good shot. In practice, however, the
case Is rather different, because when a
player sways back with the upward swing
of his club the chances are. against him
swaying forward to exactly the right de
gree In the down stroke. In any case, by
swaying he Is Introducing a new and diffi
cult factor Into his calculations, and the
less this factor Is allowed to affeet the
conditions of the problem the better.
It Is all very well to talk about the bad
results which come from swaying or an
awkward stance, bad habits into which
many golfers have grown; what Interests
them the most Is how to avoid these pit
falls. An early visit to the club's profes
slonal and a couple of lessons ought to
show the player Just how to overcome his

GRAND RAPIDS. Mich., April 25.-Bn
tries for the early closing stakes of Grand
Rapids'1 meeting were recently announced
for the coming season, and are of great
Interest to horsemen. While the Furniture
City Driving club, which manage the
meeting, Is not In membership with the
grand circuit, yet the meeting will be the
first of tho year In which a $10,000 stake
for trotters and one of $6,000 for pacers are
The list of nominators Indicates that with
very few exceptions every big line driver
will be In Grand Rapids, such as Geers,
Murphy, McDonald, Macey, LaselL Deam,
Walter Cox, McMahan, W. J. Andrews.
Millard Sanders, L. V. Shuler, John L.
Dodge and several others, with the beet
candidates in their respective training
strings, or, In other words, the list showa
tho very beat of the year, and the trotters
and pacers which will be In the great
events from the start to the finish of the
racing year.
While there are no classes In the Grand
Rapids early closing card for green horses,
yet many horses unknown to fame are en
tered. and as a great majority of them are
products of mile track circuits and natur
ally the pick from the two-lappers. their
contest against well known big linora
makes the card doubly Interesting.
The first entry of the year also shows
that everywhere the procpeots for big en
erles In all early closing events, as well as
class races, are very bright. The fl0,0u0
stake has a total of twenty-three entries,
more than the nominations to the Detroit
classic, the M. & M. stake, which looks
right eneouraglng for the balanco of the
The entries for the faster classes, such
at the 106 pace, naturally are not many,
yet the fact that outside of the big stake
all ethers have received an average entry
of fifteen for each class. Is a sure indica
tion that racing material large In number
and fine In quality Is promised for the en
tire season. - -

Michigan Runner Recognized at Best
All Around Athlete in Amer-
- ica Today,
PHILADELPHIA, Fa... April 2S.-Horner
of Michigan, now recognised- as the great
est all around athlete In America, will be
the center of attraction in the special
events at Pennsylvania's relay races. He
seema destined to fill the shoes of Martin
Sheridan, America's all around champion.
and to say that he will probably make even
better records than the world famous Mar
tin Is about the highest praise that can be
given to Horner. The Michigan marvel
seems to be' at home either on track or
field. For instance, In the recent meet
with Cornell, Horner won .the . thirty-five
yard dash, was second In the hurdles and
won the high Jump and shot put. The latter
Is his special 'event and, barring accidents,
he is sure to make a new College record.
Horner will compete, In the shot put and
high Jump, and he will also enter either
the hurdles or the 100 yards. Though a big
man, weighing, close to ISO pounds, he has
shown great speed even or the quarter,
though. It Is hardly likely .that outdoors
he will prove so fast in this contest.
During the past winter Horner has com
peted in the following events with the fol
lowing records: Thirty-five yards dash,
4 seconds; forty yards hurdle, 6 seconds;
shot put, 46 feet TVs inches; high Jump, 6
feet 11 Inches. .. . ,
He has also run on Michigan's one-mile
relay team. Horner Is a good broad
Jumper and he has dona eleven feet in the
pole vault. Thus, with such remarkable
ability in so many different events, Horner
is expected to break all existing point rec
ords when he competes tn the all around
championship this) summer. ' '

NEW TORK, April 23 Reports ef Se
vere damage to young eotton over a wide
area In the south as a result of the storms
and frecxlng temperatures of the last two
days caused a big sdvance In the cotton
market at the opening here today. Busi
ness was more active than for days past,
snd the advance, which extended to some
30 points, or $1.60 per bale, en most of the
new crop months, reflected excited general
The market was Influenced also by cov
ering again cotton supposed to have been
shipped by the recently failed southern
firm, particularly In Liverpool, and there
was moreover some buying upon a report
compiled by a local authority showing a
prospective reduction In the acreage of
Mississippi and Louisiana.
NEW ORLEANS, April 25,-Freexlng
weather and snow in many parts ot the
south sent cotton up J1.75 on the opening
In the local future market today. The new
crop Is reported killed in many pieces.
The market opened with the new crop
months at an advance of 84 points over
Saturday's closing. The old crop months
were not affected so much, but stood at
an advance of 14 to 20 points. On the
floor were many delegations of planters
from the interior of the cotton belt. This
element bought heavily and so did the
shorts. After the call bears tried hard to
check the advance, offering great quanti
ties of eotton, but In the first half hour
of trading the advance in October was
widened to 89 points.
One of the contentions of the long side
was that planters were short of seed and
that If the cotton was killed in many
places by the cold westher, another short
crop would be In order this season.
Texas Is said to have suffered severely.

The" United States government buys
about $7,000,000 worth of coal every year for
use In the navy, in public buildings In
Washington, and other cities, and for other
purposes, about one-third of it mainly
coal used In publlo buildings on specifica
tions under which prices are fixed accord
ing to the value or quality Of the coal de
livered by the successful bidder.
A definite standard of quality for the
coal thus purchased Is specified by each
bidder, and this standard is considered in
awarding the contract. If the value of the
coal furnished Is below the standard fixed
a discount Is made from the contract price,
-if Its value is above- the standard an al
lowance la made for the. excess In value
and a proper sum is paid In addition to
the contract price.. The value is determined
by tests and analyses made by the geologi
cal survey on samples taken from the coal
furnished by the contractor.
These analyses and tests show the quality
of the coal in terms of fixed carbon, vol
atile matter, sulphur, ash, and moisture,
and especially it heating value In British
thermal units, as determined by calorimet-
rlc tests.
Until within a few years the agents of
the government. In buying coal relied upon
the integrity of the dealer and the repu
tation of the mine or district from which
the coal was obtained, and these formed
the only possible assurance that the coal
was equal In quality to the grade to be
furnished. The new method has been so
successful that It will probably be gradu
ally extended to oover a larger share of
the government's fuel supply.
A full statement of this method of buying
coal Is contained In a recent bulletin of the
United States Geological Survey (Bulletin
428), entitled "The purchase of coal by the
government under specifications, with
analyses of coal delivered for the fiscal
year 1908-09," by George S. Pope.
The bulletin Includes a satement of the
factors affecting the value of coal, a de
scription of the methods adopted for sam
pling and testing, a form of specifications
used under the new plan, a list of govern
ment contracts for ooal for the fiscal year
1909-10, and a table of analyses of coal
furnished for the fiscal year 1906-09.
The new plan has not yet been applied
to fuel purohoeed for the vessels ot the
United States navy, but does cover about
400,000 tons of coal bought for use on the
Isthmus of Panama and about 140,000 tons
used on steamers plying from New Tork
to Colon.t Washington Herald.
Announcements of the Theaters.
A more representative audience has not
attended an Omaha theater this season
than that which filled the Orpheum Mon
day night. Familiar face of society folks,
merchants and professional people made
up for the most part ths great audience
that enthused much over the noted English
singing comedienne, Vesta Victoria. It was
Indeed a fitting compliment to Miss Vic
toria. The streets surrounding the Or
pheum were lined with automobiles and
the entire atmosphere around the popular
Vaudeville theater was toned to that pitch
that evidences the presence of some dis
tinguished staf or dignitary. The sale of
seats indicates a complete sell-out for the
Bright, crisp, snappy Just as "Ginger
Girls" should be, are some of the char
acteristics of the delightful entertainment
being given twice daily at the popular
Gayety this Week. In claiming Ed Lee
Wroth as its own comedian, Omaha, has
made a wise choice, for it would be diffi
cult to select an artist who could cause
more hearty laughs than does Wroth, who
years ago sold papers on the streets of
Did you ever See a runaway train? It
you didn't, you, have no idea what an
exciting event It Is, and how full of tre
mendous possibilities. The Lyman H.
Howe travel picture series shown at the
Boyd this week glvee a most graphic Illus
tration of ths havod wrought by a runaway
train on an Austrian railroad. This Is
one ot the most remarkable films In exist
ence, but Is only one ot a series of remark
able pictures that are being shown. The
exhibition Is entertaining and educational
and should be seen by all, whether they
have traveled or not ' The theater is open
afternoon and evening each day.
Woman's Work
Activities of the Oiganlnd

dertaking ef Ooaoerm to Women.
The Omaha Woman's club has finished
Its year's work. Installed its new officers
and adjourned until next October. The
annual meeting was held Monday afternoon
and a large attendance was out. Reports
of the eight departments showed all doing
good, definite work, while the reports of
the general officers Indicate stability and
serious effort. Under the presidency of
Mrs, Edward Johnson during the last two
years the club has made a material gain
In membership - and she retiree with an
enviable record to her credit.
Mrs. R. M. Cameron, the newly elected
president, returns to the executive com
mittee, which she has served before as
recording secretary, with the confidence
of tho entire membership and Its cordial
support. With ' Mrs. C. W.- Hayes, vice
nreMldont- Mp. T. T 1telv second vice
president; Mrs. N. H. Nelson, recordlnlH
secretary; Mrs. George Bonner, correspond
ing secretary, and Mrs. K. R. Hume,
treasurer, the new executive committee Is
strong and the prospects for the year
Regarding the several proposed amend
ments to the bylaws of the General Fed
eration of Women's clubs proposed by Its
executive committee, the club will send
Its delegates to the Cincinnati meeting un
instructed with the exception of one
amendment proposing to Increase the state
federation dues to the general from 85 to
50 cents a club. On this change the local
women drew the line, feeling that It would
work a hardship to the smaller town clubs
and the state federations, which are al
ready heavily taxed to meet their obliga
tions and their demands. Mrs. George
Tllden, who has long been In touch with
the work, expressed the opinion that the
tendency of the national organisations Is
to grow extravagant - and she advocated
devoting any additional tax to the work
In the state which is much In need of It.
It was voted that the club should plant
a Boston ivy at the library building
Wednesday at 12 o'clock. The old and new
executive committees will do the planting.
The moving picture show and Its possi
bilities has attracted the attention of club
women and others Interested In social bet
terment and promises to be turned to prac
tical account In several cities before long.
Miss Jane Addams' suggestion that moving
pictures of the thrilling stories ot the Bible
be substituted for the Sunday night sermon
In many of the churchee has met with
cordial approval and the women are now
agitating that moving picture theaters bo
operated by the clubs with the present
popular 6 and 10 cent admission charged
and that the stories of the Old Testament
be substituted for the too often question
able themes so popular lh almost all cities
and towns. The question of securing the
slides and the expense of It Is of course
the serious obstacle, hut this can and will
be met as other needs have been met when
the club have decided that they must be.
It has been suggested that slides showing
Bible" stories, slides of travels and other
things that would be educational and up
lifting can be provided and sent from one
place to another Just as the majority ot
the popular moving picture show glides
are. The establishment of a few of these
theaters would create the demand for slides
and make them more easily obtainable.
This subject will come up for' discussion
In many of the state federations of clubs
this fall afid will undoubtedly lead to
definite action. , '
