And at Spalding's they say that in 1.500 dining-rooms belonging to Chicago society this "ping, pong" is reverberant several evenings a week; that Chicago's 400 calls it table tennis; and that Mrs. Potter PaJimer bought the first four sets placed on sale in the house. Since that time the factory at Springfield, Mass., has not been able to turn the paraphernalia of the game out nearly fast enough to supply the Chicago demand. It is conceded now, too, that since the advent of the dear little Pinky Panky Poo belonging to Mrs. Patrick Campbell and the inevitable importation of English " ping, pong," as the fashionable name for this parlor tennis, the fates themselves could not Ftop the march of these alliteratives. Rating Fad in England. For " parlor tennis " in Chicago is the game of "ping pong," which has driven London society frantic; which is sweeping English conservatism into garbage heaps, and which already is taking its place in current literature with all the dignity which once belonged to whist, chess, and the bank at Monte Carlo. London society has been stampeded by pjng pong. Only now and then does society literature enter its protest, as does a pessimistic contributor to the Christmas Sketch. This iconoclast says: "And inside the library Sir John brooded, and with determination. "What a confoundedly rascally game ping pong was, anyhow. Why had he not insisted on drawlne-rnnm croquet as the least of a dozen disagreeable evils? The parchment in the ping pong racquet had now become strained to concert Pitch by the heat of the dining-room, and the sound had changed from an aggravating, dull contralto to a piercing soprano which rattled on his eardrums like the reports of rifle shots. "Family festivities always struck him as peculiarly melancholy now. It made him miserable to be so happy. The only real use of these games was that they kept the younger boys from smoking cigarets and from dissipation generally. Perhaps if Clarence had been there he might have endured the racket without much suffering. To be sure Clarence used to turn the place into a bear garden, but what a merry laugh he had. How he used to " The paragraph breaks there, and only so far is ping pong considered in philosophio light. But ping pong was, is, and will be in London for a good while to come, and it is spreading in the United States generally with the rapidity of smallpox in an unvac-cinated Mexican village. " It's the ball that has made the game," said a salesman. " Table tennis in Chicago ia old, but it didn't take simply because in playing it the regular tennis ball was used. It was heavy, too big, and generally unresponsive. This ball, you see, is of white celluloid, thin as an eggshell, and as lively as a greased flea. A player hardly can touch it lightly enough to keep it in the bounds of a nine-foot table. This leaves table tennis just enough an after-dinner game to aid digestion, as the lightness of the racquets and of the ball leaves the exertions of the play less than those of dancing." Game ot Real Skill. While the rules of the game are almost Identical with those of garden tennis, the table game affords more chances for skill in handling the ball, and it admits of tricks almost without number, which add to the game's variety and interest. Volleying may be kept up until the players are in a fever of excitement, and at the same time the pitch of interest in the spectators is not a whit behind that of the principals. The game ,zmtja mwwp.-v- ww.-a.., , ... . .... . , - , , m may be played in any kind of weather, and women are its especial champions, for the reason that the game colors their cheeks and brightens their eyes without in the least ruffling them. In England the game has been played for three seasons in a limited way, but not until somebody called it " ping pong " a year ago did it succeed in carrying London society by storm. Now it is said that English army officers in south Africa play the game whenever the Boers leave them alone long enough to set up the tables. The racquets used in the game are made of rattan, stretching an oval parchment about eight inches long and five Inches wide across the canter. This parchment is as tight as a banjo head, and it is the difference in the tension of these parchements which give the " ping pong " effect. One may pay from $2.50 to $10 for net, racquets, and balls. In a $10 set one gets four racquets with cane handles and frames, the grips being of braid ed catgut, nickel mounted, and covered with the finest vellum. The net is of tan linen, nickeled posts, and leather covered, in order not to scratch furniture. A dozen balls complete the set. On the table the height of the net varies from five to seven inches. The lower the net the more difficult are the strokes to return. To warm the racquets increases their elasticity and tone, as warming a banjo head increases its resonance. The game itself is for two players, one at each end of the table, which may vary in length from seven to nine feet, being half as wide as it is long. The player who delivers the ball is the " server " and the other is the " strikerout." At the end of the first game the strikerout becomes the server, and so on, alternately. The service must be underhand and delivered from behind the ends of the table. The ball served must drop on the table be yond the net; if into the net or off the table .the striker is out there is no second In serving it is a let if the ball touch the net in passing over. If the ball in play strikes any object above or around the table before it bounds on the table service (net or posts excepted) it counts against the player. Rules Something Like Tennis. The server wins a stroke if the striker-out fails to return the service, or if he fails to return the ball in play from beyond the end of the table. The striker-out wins a stroke if the server serves a fault, fails to return the ball in play, or if he returns the ball so that it falls off the table. No volleying is allowed, but if the bail touches the table top it is in play and may be taken at half volley. On either playeT's winnings first stroke th score is called 15 for that player; on either player's winning a second stroke the seor. is called 30; on a third stroke the score is called 40; and the fourth stroke won by that player is scored " game." except as below: If both players have won three strokes the score of 40 is called deuce, and the next stroke won by either player is scored advantage to that player. Then if the same player wins the next stroke he wins the game. If he loses the next stroke the score is again called deuce, and so on. until one player wins the two strokes immediately following the score of deuce, when the game is scored for that player. The player who first wins six games wins a set. The game also may be scored by points, 20 up. The players, in this case, change the service after every five points scored after the manner of " overs " at cricket. " O, yes," sighed an elderly resident of the Lake Shore drive, when asked of the game, , " this table tennis, or ' ping-pong." or whatever you call it, is all right for the players and for those who look on, but it is h 1 to a man who is trying to read or think within sound of that monotonous ping, pong,' or ' peng, punk ' in the next room." FTER a wlmer of dances, which have been almost entirely for the younger f"T sets. Mrs. Potter Palmer's delayed I 1 New Tear's ball on Wednesday night was notable for bringing out an assemblage of society men and women such as have not been seen at a similar affair this reason.
