��The holder is propped in a convenient inclined position for removal

��A\i;\\' mechanical i atldx' for llu- yolfcT ha.s been invented by John Ducre Cady of Moline, Illinois. ll is an ingenious, wheeled holder lor golf-slicks, which the player can easily lake o\'er the golf course withoul the assistance of a cadd\'. Iiuleed, the caddy can be entirely forgotten, unless the player loses one of his goll b.ills, when he can i.ill the cadiK' to his assist- ance and make him an odi-r to lind the lr|st ball. As is usualh- the case, accord- in'g to golfers, the cadd\' will readilv' agree to the bargain and then saunter olT, tind lin' ball, and forget to reliMMi wilii it.

��Howexcr, tile device illustrated here- with should make the player S(jme\\liat independent at least. It is made to hold the g<jlf-clubs in a convenient inclined I)osition for removal. The most ellicient caddy could not improve on this par- ticular feature. In wheeling the holder alont;, the player mereK' has to grasp ,i h.iiulle pivoted at the top and w.dk jaun- lihon. If the ground is a bit rough tln' automatic c.uld\- ina\- turn over a couple ol tiuH's but it can be e.isil\ righted.

When the player has tinislu-d hi.-, game the automatic caddy can st.uid upright and thus take up .1 mininuim of >p,ice.
