Most bi' the lenders of last season will be "in the hunt" again this year, while :i host of promising yomig "cracks" will keep thorn hustling- to maintain tin; honors w<m 011 earlier Since then, tho same objection h» been repeatedly raised by Englishmen who fear tho climate hero. As American players who have played in Enfr- land complain of their heavy courts and have never been able to appear at their best when abroad, the question of international supremacy at the sport is still a disputed on 3. Shaw, who was unable to win the championship from Slocum. At that time Moors complained of tho extreme heat of our climate and it was thought that this fact handicapped him considerably. Of last year's leading ten players, all but two will probably bo in active competition this season. Fred II. Hovey, of Boston, who has floured so prominently in the championship events for many years, graduated from the Harvard law school last spring and has settled down to business and docs not expect to play much tennis this season. Ho tells me that he will defend tho national championship at doubles which he holds with Clarence Ilobart, but will not pla3' in tho big championship event at Newport. lie will also defend the Longwood challenge trophy that he has held for two voars. Ho fields of glory. To fill the cup of the, tennis enthusiast the announcement is made upon reliable authority that scv- ' may also play at West New toil in the era! of the most famous of the Kng-- ' invitation event but these will proba- lisli exports at the ga-inu will be present and play for the American championship (it Newport next August. I am informed by a well-known tennis player, who is in a posit ion to know, that there is a strong- probability of i ho will show his usual brilliancy when our seeing one or both of the famous i he docs play. Some of them whisper llenshaw brothers, whose names have ' that as the Newport date draws nearer, become known all over 'the world for ; lie may find the temptation to enter their skill at the frame, and G. \V. Hill- j too great, and if in good form he may bly be all of his public mutches. As he has just started in law, it is doubtful if he finds his time so taken up that ho cannot practice a great deal in off hours, so his friends expect that JAPANEBI yard will try this year for the tit.le Wrenn holds. All throe of the Englishmen named spent a large part of last winter at Cannes in the south of Prance, where they played tennis regularly almost every day. It was there that the scheme to visit this country next summer was planned. Several American players of note also visited Cannes last winter and met the celebrated English experts. Richard Stevens and Deane Miller both played try for the honors which have- I always seemed for him to be "so near ! and yet so far." If lie should play • again in the singles at Newport he will be one of the hardest men in the list to beat, and one of the greatest barriers between tho English visitors and tho American championship. Edward L. Hall, of Ne\v York, while he did not appear to great advantage last season, should still be counted as one of tho firstrdass players, and his is- some while thero, while E. L. Hall and Marion E. Wright visited the crmrts without taking part in the games at all. Stevens, who is one of the first ten players in America, played against both Ernest Kcnshaw and Hillyard while he was there, and the results of these games arc of particular interest on account of the possible visit of these men to onr courts. Stevens is an expert "base line" play er but cannot volley well'. He is also strongly prejudiced against any but grass courts and had to play on clay at Cannes. Ho was in poor form, too, for he had played littlo or none since fall, and did not have much practice there before meeting the Englishmen. Rcnshaw gave him odds of half thirty and was beaten. He tried again allowing Stevens only fifteen, but again tho American player was the victor. Hillyard played one set even with Stevens and won it by 0-4. This was all the tennis Stevens played against tho foreigners, but he saw them play many other times. He is, therefore, in ,an excellent position to judge of their play as compared with that of our American experts. In speaking to me on this subject last week, ho said: "I think that Hillyard and Ernest Renshaw are about as good as any men we have on this side, but no better. If they entered at Newport, either might win tho championship, yet I do not think that either of then) would stand a better chance for it than four or five of our best men. I do not think the Englishmen could endure our climate, and if we happened to have a hot week at Newport, a five sot match would be more than they could stand." The only previous visit of first-class English players to our tournaments •was in 1889 when E. G, Moors, at that time ranked as a little poorer than tho best English players, played at Newport for the American championship. He won three matches from middle class men, and then met Campbell in tho semi-final round. Campbell beat him after a rather close match of five •ett, and waf afterward beaten by probable absence from competition this year will leave another gap in the ranks of the old-time experts. Hall spent a large part of last winter in Morocco with Marion 11. Wright and visited Cannes for a short time just after Stevens had left there, but did not play any tennis. It is probable that Wright and Hall will spend tho spring- and early part of the summer in England and may play in some of the British tournaments. It is also possible that they may return to this country in time to play in Newport, and perhaps in some of the earlier tournaments. Clarence Ilobart, too lias gone into business and will not have as much times for tennis this year as he has given to it during the last few seasons. He tells mo, however, that he will spend his vacation in playing the game and hopes to get into good enough form to make a strong showing in the championship event. He will get most of his practice after business hours at the courts of the New Vork Tennis club, which arc next door to his home. William A. Lamed, the crack Columbia college player, has joined the New York Tennis club this spring and will practice a good deal with Ilobart. With Stevens, Campbell, V. G. Hall, C. E. Sands and other New York experts of less repute to practice against, Ilo- bart should not lack for practice and will doubtless be In excellent shape when the supreme test arrives in August, lie will also play some at the St. George Cricket club, in Hoboken, for practice Just before tournaments, on grass courts, as those of the New York Tennis club are of earth. Robert D. Wrenn, of Chicago, who won the championship last year, will undoubtedly be seen opuin this season. How much he will play, though, is still a matter of supposition. That he will defend his championship title at Nowport goes without saying, and somo tournament practice is of course necessary to get into good form for the challenge match, lie will probably play at West Newton in the invitation event, and may be seen in one or two of the other New England tournaments, including Narraganaett Pier and perhaps the Long-wood tour* naraeni J.

After all the discussions caused b; the advanced woman, it is interesting by way of contrast, to turn to the coun try where woman's lifelong and chie duty is obedience and submission. writer describes the Japanese woman as really charming, not as a responsi ble woman, but as a feminine curio As a wife she is of so little account tha from the most devoted husband she ex pects but a few favors. AH the women are born with a natural courtesy. Even the humblest have slender, delicatt hands, and arrange everything with surprising daintiness. A Japanese lady's visiting dress of ten costs two hundred dollars, not includ ing her hairpins, which are always c most important item. As the fashion never changes, both dress and pins art handed down from mother to daugh ter. In each city the women wear a color peculiar to themselves. In Tokic it IK blue, in Kyoto slate gray, and so on. Chamberlain says: "It is Jittli wonder that the woman of the uppc: class is adopting European dress which is by uo means so general as i: supposed. It shows that, to a certaii extent, she hr.s shaken off the yoke o inferiority under which she has In. bored. For to-day in Japan the great est duchess in the land is only her l"is band's drudge. He treats her more re spec:tfully when in European dress The same woman ha,s been observed to walk into the room after her Imsbam when dressed a la Japanaise, but be fore him when a la Europcenne." According to the "Seven Kcasons for Divorce," a Japanese \vomau cam divorced for talking too much, whicl disturbs the peace of her kinsmen, o: brings trouble on her household.

She has no change in fashions to discuss, no shopping- to while away her time, no Easter bonnet to look forward to, as she never wears bonnets: her only ornaments are tortoiseshel hairpins, her best parasols are made of paper, her kimono must be of quiet, soft-colored crepe. Truly, she Ims H hard time, this little Japanese woman, It is customary for a woman to blacken her tooth when she becomes a bride, to keep away'other admirers and show her entire subm<ssion to her husband. The present pretty empress as a wife has. however, set the example of wearing white teeth. It is said that a Japanese crowd is the sweetest in,the world. They never •use soap; the figured Japanese silks and cottons will not stand it. Their substitute for ironing- is primitive. While the material is very wet they spread it smooth on boards and stand them against the houses to dry. The Japanese are devoled mothers and excellent nurses, but the poor little baby never knows the comfort of a mother's lap, for she uses her knees to sit upon, and holds her baby standing to her breast when nursing it. She always carries it on her back. Drunkenness is unknown among even the lowest women, but a pipe is her constant companion. She even takes it to bed with her, while her lit tie hibaehi (charcoal box), well filled with hot ashes, is close beside her for convenience sake. Her housekeeping gives her but little trouble, for in the lower classes rice, varied with tea, pickled vegetables, sauces, and fish, comprise the three meala All who spend any time in the country are completely fascinated by these sweet-tempered, gentle, and dainty women, always- easily pleased, and as light hearted as children.
