They had pitched their tent, so to speak, in the vicinity of the residence of a person whose nerves became so unstrung by the horrible noise created by the tennis ball continually striking the network ■ that he decided to put a stop to it. He had ^frequently complained of the nuisance, and the tennis club, to avoid a recurrence of the annoyance to the a^sthetie neighbor, substituted a sponge for the ordinary ball, in order that less noise might eventuate. This, however, only added fuel to the fire, for the improvised ball was accidently knocked over the fence of the irate neighbor, and was immediately seized by a pet pug dog, and swallowed by that animal just sufficiently far to occasion the exeavation of a portion of the garden plot, and the burial | of the dog.
