'.Forest Hills, X. - Sept. 1 Wil
liam M. . Johnston turned aside a
formidable aspirant for his honors
when, Ik- forceful playing," he defeat
ed R. Nrris Williams II in : thc
fourth round of the 39th All-Comers
National tennis championship" sin
' gles today. The two . stars of the
Davis cup team fought at all thc all
court type of game, Johnston mas
tering his opponent in straight sets,
t3. 6-4, 7-5. ".' ;
This was the outstanding, battle' of
the day, although in the other
matches of the round form prevailed
and William Tv'Tilden I, world's
title holder: Wallace J, Johnson, the
wizard of the chop stroke; G. Colket
Caner. Walter Wesbrook and Wat
son M. Washburn were winners.
Washburn accounted for thc defeat
"f Charles S. Garland of the Davis
.cup team, beating him, 7-5, 7-S, 7-5.
, Match Thrills Crowd.
It was the engagement of John
ston and. Williams that pleased the
crowd.4 Williams possessed no ef-
gTh to his shots. Also,
. his service was tricky, and, instead
ot the sizzling aces expected, double
faults punctured the score at th;
most critical stages. .
Thert was another outstanding
feature' of the rallies in this set. It
was seen Williams' back hand was
inclined to be" erratic. Johnston
made the most of this weakness. His
drives from deep court were all cau
tiously developed as the rallies pro
gressed. It was the same as , he

Williams Shows Weakness!,
,' The' weakness of Williams' game
uas clearly shown in the. third set.
Shooting finally for thc lines which
he paralleled with acing drives, Wilt
aims went to thevJead, 5-2, on games.
Johnston then started to wreck his
rival's game by wonderful changes
of speed and length. Twice. Will
itms was within a point of the set
and each time Johnston forced him
Jo over-drive the colirt to carry thc
points to .deuce. The final , rally was
characteristic of what Williams did,
for under pressure fro mthe Cali
fornians sie of the barrier, Will
iams drove the last ball slapping into
Tilden conquered his youthful pro
tege, Vincent Richards, in four sets.
The score vvas 6-3. 3-6, 6-3, 6-0. .

This was stated by officials- of thc

Is the First Monday in September
Copyright, 1:0, Wheeler Syndicate. Inc.
Celebrated as Labor Day? '
The iqea of having an Ameri
can, holiday, separate and distinct
from thc European celebration of
.May 1 as Labor da), originated
in Boston about 1878. but it was
not until 1882 that the first for
mal movement was made to es
tablish this as an annual institu
tion. Matfliew Maguire, secretary of
the Central Labor union in, New
York City, wrote to the various
labor organizations in -the state
with a view to setting aside one
day in the year for a, celebration
of the power of labor. The idea
was well received, and it w-as
agreed to select the first Monday
in September, the opening of thc
harvesting season, as well as the
commencement -of fall activities
in various other lines. The first
Labor day was accordingly cele
brated in the same" year 1882
and proved so successful that the
New York Central Labor, union
wrote "to' the. organizations ih
'pther states, suggesting that they
adopt the idea,' adding that the
first Monday in September had
been endorsed as the official holi
iday for labor by the American
Federation of Labor and the
Knights of Labor. In 1887 the
New York legislature made La
bor day a holiday throughout the
state, - a step which was epeedily
followed by Massachusetts and
other -states. By act of congress,'
signed by the president on June
28., 1894. the holiday was made
'official in thc -District of Colum
bia and soon spread throughout
the country. At the present Jime
the state of New Mexico is the
.only; one in which the day is not
officially recognized as a holiday.

AS TO ALIENISTS.
An eminent lirnif t declares that- the fans that throw pop bottles at base ball um
pires are not properly balanced mentally.
When fans declare: "We'll kill that umps
4 . . The ugly faced galoot!" ' ;
And leave the stand in frenzied jumps
Their threat to execute.
'And beat the wretch with club and fist
Amid teriffic noise, .
"Dear" me," 'observes the alienist, ,
They've lost their mental poise!" r
When Deacon Jones of Poplar Creek t -'
7 , Flies off his trolley wire, ,
, Lets out a loud and piercing shriek
And sets his house afire, ' i
And clampers up the town hall stairs
To shoot his brother, Dave,
, "Well, well!" the alienist declares,
"That's no way to behave!"
When William puts" a halter on
- And says that he's a cow,
And, all the fodder being gone
, He can't get breakfast now,
And that a little barley serves
To whet his appetite,
'." "Oh dear!" the alienist observes, rf 7
"He isn't acting right!" . ',
, It's fine whenanyone appears
To hav a mental twist
Or be snarled up between the ears
To call an alienist.
To such a case he always brings " ,
A world of - lcarned lore, " ''
And tells us such a lot e things
That we hare known before!

Give the Children a Chance. v
By J. J. MUNDY.
This is' the time - for travel . arid
there art -cerfain experiences which
you should permit your children to
have. to make '..them., familiar with
them. i -
It is not just to child, for in-,
stance, to let it grow ' up without
knowing anything about the inside
of a Pullman car. . .. ..
Much- embarrassment has been
caused; young men and young women
by the ignorance they have had to
display regarding sleeping cars.
.Children should be taken to large
hotels to know how to conduct them--selves
in such places.. '
And Children should be given as
much as their parents' income, will
allow, for the purpose of doing the
things necessary in associating with
persons of good breeding so that
they may know, the proper ways of
doing things, as well, as the influence
which contact with well bred persons
will give in refinement. .
It is an easy, matter for a young
person to do some little thing which
is really big in its announcement to
others that there is no experience or
environment- back of it.
Do 'yoti want your child to be so
handicapped? Of. course you don't.
Then see that your child has pro
per training along cultural lines.
