E. I. Horsman, 80 William street, is wearing a 7x9 smile these days, notwithstanding he has set the whole world by the ears with his "Tiddledy Winks" tennis, and dealers are fairly tumbling over each other in their haste to get orders in early.  Mr. Horsman thinks that the "Tiddledy Winks" games have made the best hit of any he has ever brought out.  At any rate, he has had to roll up his sleeves and help get out orders.  He cannot manufacture the games fast enough, however, to keep up, and has adopted the plan of sending a dozen to dealers who order a gross, and one single game to him who orders a dozen, and filling the hiatus with liberal promises.  He is increasing his facilities for manufacturing, and hopes soon to be able to fill all orders promptly.
