night on th McCredle ground on Elev
enth street, when H. McL. Dewart will
compete with Joseph 8 warts In the
mens singles. Both men ar strong
players and an excellent game la pre
dicted. Games will follow each evening for
probably a week, after which th finals,
both double and single, will be played

ment has aroused considerable tennis
spirit here and lt is more than probable
that a permanent tennis club will be
