Single Women Best at GolL
It is once more demonstrated
that when it comes to the final
and supreme test of superior skill
on the golf links the single wonv
en can generally be depended
npon to outplay their married
competitors every time. It is
true that the single women great-
ly outnumbered the married ones
In the list of the contestants fur
championship this year, and it is
also true that the marled women
held on remarkably well, but
when it came to the semifinals^
between two married ladies and
two tingle ones, the latter woo
handsomely, and the final con-
test for championship honors
now lies between Miss Hecker
and Miss Wells. Whoever wins
will be a single lady, as has been
the case ever since these tourna-
ments have been played under the
auspices of the United States
Golf Association, the four chain*
pions having been Miss Hoyt,
Miss Underhill, Miss Griscom
and Miss Hecker.

with a profit of half a million in a

He has just closed out his holdings
in Bronx realty at a price he never

'iave all been lucky lately. John
F. Carroll, who, was only a district

Voloano Didn't Hurt Coffee.
' When the volcanic eruptions In
Guatemala last year covered the
coffee fincas, it was believed that
I the industry was ruined and that
Guatemala had received a blow
from which recovery would be
slow. Many planters abandoned
their ash covered plantations and
1 believed themselves ruined. But
, the activity of the volcanoes was
j followed by heavy and long con-
tinued rains, which washed away
a jgreat deal of the ashes and incor-
porated more of them with the soil.
The rain also seemed to bleach
the ashts and extract from it a
liquid fertilizer which proved of
great ljencfit to Hie coffee trees.
The result is a crop nearly as large
again as last year's. Hereafter,
when the volcanoes of Guatemala
erupt and spout ashes, the only un-
fortunate coffee planters will be
those whose fincas are outside of
| Haughty Theatrical Managers.
1 This is the time of year when
the theatrical managers are feel-
ing very haughty. No actor who
lias his own welfare at heart
would dare to call a manager by
his first name between now and
September I. There are 2000 art-
| ists in New York skirmishing for
t engasremnts for next season, and
! the stairways leading to manag-
ers' offices are being worn down
i by their shuffling feet. To meet
an actor these days who says that
•he is already engaged for the sea-
son is equivalent to gaining an ad-
mission that he has hired out for
a small salary. This is always the
I way it works. The managers
, have plenty of time to fill their
companies, and they hold out for
small prices, and the actors usual-
ly have some money left over
from last season and they are inde-
pendent. Therefore there is a
great deal of dickering before an
engagement is reached. One of
. the firsit stars to open will be lulu
' Glascr. She is to have the opera,
1 "The Madcap Princess," and the
I company is now being engaged,
j It was designed at first to go West
with this piece before the New
! York op*: ing, but the managers
have changed their plans.
Crlspi's Secret Papers.
Very unexpectedly, the Italian
courts have decreed the restoration
to the daughter of Cristi of all the
papers and correspondence of her
I father, seized by the government
'directly lifter his death. They are
jto be restored to his house 111 Na-
'ples, with seals unbroken, and are
•there to be examined in the pres.-
'ence of Senator Inghilleri, who is
trusted by the government, and by
Crispi's wife and daughter (the
Princess Linguaglopa), and those
papers belonging to the state are to
he turned over to the senator for
preservation in the state archives.
These state papers include the
whole confidential corrsspondence
between Orispi and Bismarck The
rest of the papers will be left in
the hands of Princess Linguaglossa,
and it is understood tha she will
make a book of them.
