When Gink bought the charter
for the Roughtown Amusement park
he immediately renovated the works,
putting in three exiots for every en
trance. The object of the Roughtown
Amusement company was to estab

He took money from every team
and often gave two decisions for
the price of one.
He was very generous that way.
The Glutt was Gink's closest
enemy. He hired a team of Conan
Doyle't spook athletes to defeat
his home outfit. It was a bitter
blow to Roughtown when an empty
Pullman clattered in and 11 of
Conan's playmates clambered cut.
They clattered noiselessly up
Herpicide boulevard, following a
horrible roar of silent music by the
spook band. When they took the
field all you could see of them was
little puddles of dust When the
Captain Spook ran the bases. Gink
would throw the ball after a cloud
of dust skidding around the lines,
but there was nothing to tag.

American to Play
for Tennis Title
London. May IS. Walter Kin
sella of New York met George F,
Covey of England, world's profes
sional court tennis champion, at the
Prince's club here today for the title.
The championship will be decided in
the best of 13 sets; four to be played
today, four on Wednesday, and the
remainder, if the match is yet un
decided, on Saturday.
Many tennis fans consider Kin
sella's American service, which they
have had an opportunity to see in ex
hibition matches during the-last few
seasons, will prove superior to that
used by Covey. '
