The dealers are still worrying the life out of E. I. Horsman, 80 William street, about "Tiddledy Wink Tennis,", although it must be said he preserves a wonderfully comfortable appearance and smiling countenance for a man who thinks of "Tiddledy Winks" all day and dreams about it all night.  He declares, however, that he believes people will go right on buying the game regardless of the close of the holiday season, and he thinks there will be no rest for him until every man, woman and child in the United States has one, and he is afraid that by that time Europe will have heard of it, and he will have fresh troubles trying to understand what they want.  However, he does not look as though he would mind a babel of tongues very much if "TIddledy Winks" was involved.
