THE ORIGIN OF GOLF
Some fonti mother« spare the rod
and spoil the «lipper.
After all, patience ia nbout the
i highest form of politness.
The loan or w. man who lisa bacoiue
I user sated Ui golf must need» huow
soinsthjug of its urigiu over in Scot
land, lu his book. '“Vhe Art of Golf.”
-dr W. G. Simpson tells the followirg
1 pretty story as to h<>w the game hwd
‘‘A shepherd loading his sheep
would often ohanca iip*>u a round'peb-
hle, and. having his ervok in his ha: d.
would strike it away: for it is a» inevi
table that u wan with a stick in his
band should aim a blow at any louse
object lying in Lis path as that be
should breathe. Over pastures green
this led to nothing; hut iviee upon a
time a certain shepherd, feediug his
sheep on a links, perhaps that it St.
Andrews, rolie,! one of these stones
into a rabbit scrape
'• 'Mary," quoth he, ‘I could not do
that if 1 tried,’ a thought which nerved
him to the attempt. But a man can
not long persevere alone in uny ardu
ous undertaking, go Mr. Shepherd
hailed another, who was hard by, to
witness the endeavor. 'That is ruse.*
said the friend, and. trying, failed. i
They now searched the grass for the
rouudest stones, aud bmiitg deepened
the rabbit scra[*e. so that the Manes
might not jump out of it. they set
themselves to practice putting.
•‘The stronger but less skillful shep
herd, Hailing hintself worsted at. the
amusement, protested that it was a
fairer test of skill to play for the hole
from a considerable distance. With
this arranged, 'he game was fouml to
be much more varied and interesting
The sheep having meanwhile strayed,
the shepherds bad to go after them.
•'This proving an exceedingly Irk
some interruption, tliev bit upon the I
ingenious device of nailing a circular 1
couree of holes, which enabled then»
to p’av nnd herd at the same Time.
These holes be.nr now many and far
apart, it became nevesiary to mark I
their whereabouts which was easily
done bv mean» of a tag of wool from n
slicep attached to a stuck s primitive
kind <>f dag still used < n many greens,
aiinoat in its original form.
these early daya the essentiAls of the
game have altered but little.”
