MRS. L. J. CHANDLER, Cor. Main and Inman Sts., Cambridgeport.Important Notice to Sportsmen.The rapid growth of amateur sport in this country and its wholesome influence have created a demand for an exponent in sympathy with the requirements of those interested in its welfare. Appreciating the need of such interpretation, Messrs. Harper and Brothers have decided to establish a department in Harper's Weekly, entitled "Amateur Sport," to begin with the current number. The department will be in no sense of the word reportorial, but, following the high standard of Harper publications, will endeavor to keep sportsmen in touch with current questions, furnish them with unbiassed and expert criticism, and the best literature obtainable in their particular field. Mr. Caspar W. Whitney, late editor of The Week's Sport, will have charge of the department.
There is no writer on athletic matters who has a better or a wider clientele than Mr. Whitney among the amateur sportsmen of the college, athletic clubs, and the better element of sportsmen generally. His experience, his training, and his associations have all tended to make him thoroughly competent, and his weekly comments and criticisms will be sure to command attention. "What Whitney says" has so often helped the perplexed captain of a team, or settled the final standing of a doubtful amateur, that what he will have to say in the Weekly will carry weight with it, and will be looked for with keen interest.
