Thero was quite a difference of opinion as to

Quite a number of persons were Inclined to
make hasty and unjust comparisons between
the time taken to post the scores at Put-In-Bay
and In Boston. The seventh congress beat all
records In this respect, but while due credit
must be given to the Indefatigable P. J. Tor
mey for his excellent management. It must not
be forgotten that he bad no such difficulties to
contend with as those which confronted the
committee In Boston. The most intricate score
that was handled at Put-In-Bay was the sched
ule for fours on the Howell system, the new
system of averaging by fractions being then
unknown. At Boston they had the fractions,
they had the matches, they had Safford's
complicated comparisons of the!? and B and
Eland W hands In groups, they hod to get the
averages on every band In the match games
and then to go over each individual score and
maksouttho loss and gain on every deal. At
Put-In-Bay all .the events were run off In one
heat, while in Boston all but the first of the
open events were divided into two or three sec
tions, and some of them into five, the scores for
each of which had to be made up separately.
While there were no reversed deals at the
congress, then seem to have bean several re
versed scores, and It is very evldont that the
Committee on Laws will have tn mako some
Very strict regulations tor tliu manner in which
such trrors shall be treated in the future. The
printed laws of the congress stated that when
ever an error had been mode in recording the
core, and it was discovered before tho match
was awarded by the Tournament Committee,
the error should be corrected by the umpire or
by the commltteo. "it possible, and consistent
with justlco to all parties to do so."
This is a very loose kind of a law, because It
does not specify who Is to do the discovering
cor how ho Is to know It la an error, neither
does It specify the exact formula by which the
Tournament Committee shall award the match.

There .ware some very curious and Interest
ing deals played at the eighth congress, and
Tbs bvn representative is indebted to several
Sromtnent players for a collection of forty-elx;
eals which It would be hard to surpass as ex
amples of how wh st should and should not be
Played. Ono of the most remarkable things
that ever happened at a whist table was ln one
of the morning games in tha .parlor, when Mrs.
Joseph II. Ilawley of Washington and E. T.
Baker of Brooklyn were partners. This is how
tho story goes: Baker led off with tho singleton
ten of hearts, diamonds being trumps. (Second
hand, with ace and two small, passed it: so did
third hand. The fourth hand held six hearts
to the K Q J. the A Q ot clubs, four
trumps to the K J. and one small
spade. He thought that It ho passed this
heart .Baker would K Jump to the trumps
under the impression that his partner had the
whole heart suit, so he let the 10 win I Instead
of going to trumps. Baker led a low spade.
Beeond hand, holding A Q J 10 and one small.
A Q 8 0 and 3 of trumps, aeo and one heart,
but no clubs, covered with tho 10. Mrs. Ilaw
ley won with the king. and. wondering why
Baker did not go on with the hearts or lead
trumps, she led the singleton 10 of trumps to
him. Second hand passed. Baker passed, and
the fourth hand, finding tho trumps coming up
to, him so nicely, with the whole spade suit
SoIIdJet tho 10 win I . Having no moro trumps.
In. Hawloy returned tho heart, which Baker
ruffed, and so thoy got tour trtoks out of a hand
In which It lslmpossiblo to got a trick it the
adversaries will only take tho tricks that corns
to them and lead trumps.
Another very funny thing, showing the ab
surdity of these conventions to deceive partner
In one thing In order to Inform him -of some
thing else, was In the match for the Brooklyn
trophy. Whelan of Baltimore, holding four
trumps to the K 10, opens the 7 of spades from
A J 7 4: an irregular lead to show four
trumps which ho does .not know what to do
with. Taylor of Now York, sitting second hand,
plays small. Harvey McCay, holding KQ 10 H.
and' two others third hand, reads the T for a
fourth-best, and makes. an cloven-rule finesse,
so that Elwell gets the trick with tho 0. After
a moment's reflection he returns the .1, and
Taylortrumps ltt Two tricks clear loss, just
for tho sakoof a conventional play.
One of tho most remarkable hands at tho
congress was probablyNo. 2 ln tho opn pairs
on Friday afternoon. Three men each have a
different suit ot six or seven cards, and each of
these men has a chance to make each of these
suits, at ono table It being a question as to
whether the player in the lead shnll go on ana
make his own suit or let his partner make all
his. The 4 of hearts Is turned and the play
went as follows, when E. J. Faborand Mrs. i
II. Johnson et New Tork were A and B re

Trick 0. If Z leads a low club, he loses a clear
trick. Be has no business to touch tho club
suit at all. because It Is doubly defective ln be

will save two tricks, because A's trump wilt

Z ruffs and runs with his club ace. he can make
Hsreis how the diamond suit was brought In

against Fuller and Wlghtman ot Providence.
As will be seen from the play the return ota

olubs Instead ot all t's diamonds, so that it was
possible to make any of theso three suits, the
spades, the clubs, or the diamonds.

A B mats six tricks onlr.
Triok 6. With tho spade suit established and
Z's club suit stopped. B very proporly comes
through with the trump, and Z false-cards the
ten. It being of equal value with the elrht,
. Trick 0. This is apparently a costly mistake,
but as a matter ot fact it lose only one trick
and Is a very natural continuation undor tho
Circumstances, because It look as if it would
catch Z's lost trump. If A does not return tho
trump he must go on with th spades, which
will force Z. Z will then lead the diamond to
hla partner, who will return tho club in order
to give Z the flnesso and put him into tho load
again. This will force A's last trump, giving
A B five tricks only, because B will havo to
lead tho diamonds to Y at the end. This was
the line of Dlay that Y expected, as will be seen
from his koeplng tint clubs and discarding the
diamonds until ho saw that one lead of clubs
would be all that was necessary.
Trick 7. Dr. Cole played this part of the hand
with excellent judgment. Y ts evidently keep
ing a club, and has been careful to discard tho
three so that Z might mark him with the
deuce, z knows that his partner would not
keep a club to lead to him unless hs was oar
tain ot getting ln to lead it.
In the following position, hearts are trumps,

Ths rremln4nt Schools Already ILooklng
Xorwartt to th Football Season.
The football management of Do La Salle In
stitute has been hunting around lately for soma
plan by whloh regular attendance at practice
can bo assured', Tho non-nttendanceot a great
many of the phyora at practice last season ao
counted for thp poor showing mado. Tho man
agement has adopted n achemu ea'culatedto
accomplish the desired end. At every practice
thoro will be a roll call, and the presence or
absonce ot oaeh candidate will bo recorded.
Before tho picking of n team the captain will
consult the roll book, and will be governed In a
measuro by this In his selection of a team.
A sohool Is very opt to undergo a complete
ohsngo in Its personnel about once In every
four rears, when most of tho older boys gradu
ate and the youngor ones take tholr place,
Columbia Grammar School will find itself ln
just such a position this year, and consequently
Its share ln intorsoholastlc athletics will ba
rather modest. One of the features at the
school will be gymnastics, and I'rof . Whewell.
tho physical Instructor, will sparo no tlmoto
get up a crock team. It is not at all unlikely
that tho muah-talked-ot-contest between Co
lumbia Grammar School and Trinity School
will take place. This should prove ono ot the
most interesting events la scholastic proceed
ings, as the wlnhlngsuhoolwillbo at once chal
lenged by He La Ballo Institute. This fact is
known bv both schools, and ench will bo mora
than anxious to carry oft the honors.
Trinity (School's football team lor "08 should
be an excellent one in every sense of tho word.
Only two players were lost by graduation,
O'llourke aud Browne. Under these conditions,
with tho eleven practically Intact and bettered
by the experience of one or more seasons on
the soholastlo gridiron, It seems that but little
ot the usual time will bo needed In developing
team work. Consequently Coaoh Soxlus will
derate the principal part of the training season
to signal work and the finer parts of the gams
so often neglected till the season is well ad
vanced. In speaking ot tho success of tho
team. Soxlus said:
"I am more than satisfied that when the
team is complete it will bo a strong one. Tho
team last year was on excellent ono. and I can't
understand the poor showing made in the final
gome. Tho boys were by no means over
worked, but the knocking out ot some of the
stars 1q tho. early part of the game may have
discouraged the rest, and they went to pieces.
That is all past now. but I will Bay that wo ex
pect to win the bannor this yoar, and nothing
will bs left undone to do so.
TEver since the New York Intersoholastio As
sociation has been organized there has boon
talk going on among tho boys about a dark
horse in the raco. This season the dark horse
Is looked upon as Columbia Institute. The
students of this school have never taken any
prominent part In athletics, and have devoted
much of their time to military exorcises and
cyoling. This year, however, the boys Intend
to figure , In every line ot sport. Dr. Edwin
" I am ploased to ear that Columbia Institute
has e very prospect of a strong athletlo repre
sentation for tho coming season. It is quite
early to mako any prodlctlous as yet, but the
large numborof stocky lads that havo entered
and the interest thoy show In football give
promise of a winning team. Wo have always
been strong supporters of tho Interscholastlo
Association, but we did not take any active
part ln the games last year nor did we hold any
" The feeling at tho school has always been
to pay clow attention to our military drills,
and this and the collego examinations allow
very little time for athletics. The wheeling
clnb at the school drew away many of our
avallablu athletes from the playgrounds and
necessary team practice. I myself was some
what responsible for this lack of enthusiasm.
It has of late been the tendency in many pri
vate schools to encourage an undue attention
to athletics. Students have been permitted to
feel that It reflects more honor to bent a foot
ball team than to construe a book ot Virgil.
"It Is a matter ot public scandal that health
ful. Invigorating exorcise has thus degenerated
to a sort ot semi-professlonallsm among school
boys. In somo coses the heads of educational
establishments havo condescended to accept on
nominal terms, or even to lure away from other
schools, young men whose special value lay in
their animal strength and energy.
" E. P. Pearson, one ot our leading instructors
snd a man ot national reputation in track and
field athletics, will have special charge ot our
football, baseball and track team, and there is
no reason why we should not take a largo
share of the interscholastlo honors."

metropolitan Branches Planning for tho

From present indications more than usual
Interest will bo manifested by the young ath
letes of the T. M. 0. A. ot this district in the
many events to be decided in the near future.
Preparations for the fall and winter gymna
sium exhibitions In all the branches are being
made, and it can bo taken for granted that they
will outclass any held in previous years. Bas
ketball and bowling will also be special fea
tures with the young Christians during tho
winter. A meeting of the Y. M. C. A. Bowling
League will be held shortly and arrangements
for tho intercity toumnment will be made
Officers will be eleotwd and a committee ap
pointed to draw up tho constitution and by

A call has been Issued to all tho metropolitan
brnnohes to have delegates present at a meet
ing to be held on Aug. 15 for the purpose of re
organizing the Y. M. 0. A. District Basketball
League Tho idea of again holding this tour
nament has been received with delight by the
players as well as the followers of tho game,
owing to the lntoi est it caused. No league was
orgnnlzod last year, because of the restriction
placed by tho Metropolitan Commltteo ot the
Y. 51. 0. A, on the game, and as a result the
usual interest was lacking and several of the
branches lost somo ot their star players, who
joined athletic clubs supporting basketball
teams. Indications point to an eight-club
league this year. Including the following
branches: Twenty-third street, Harlem, Ger
man, raytcrn District. Bedford, Twenty-sixth
want, and Central.

Susan Bibb, an old colored woman, winged its
Sight from earth to heaven, and those who
new her do not doubt she Is now with the

was. of course, classed as a negro, but whiter
than the snow was her heart, flhs was one
of the last ot that rapidly disappearing race,
the old-time Southern mammy," and as
such was loved and respected by every
white person who knew her For moro
than seventy years " Aunt". Susan had lived
with and served faithfully and well the family
ot ber old master tho Mitchells, the Bibbs, and
the Greens nursing and administering to the
sick, tending the children, and serving the
well. Having .served out her fourseoro and
three rears, nAunt",Suean laid down the bur
den of life, surrounded by white friends, and

Bull. rings of Texas Troops Sent to Guard
the Louisiana Coast.
Hsw Obleaxs. Jury 20. The New Orleans
papers report the first repulse to the American
volunteers, and that. too. on American soil, at
the railroad station known as Bltrolets. just on
the border line ot Louisiana and Mississippi.
where Lake Pontchartraln empties into Mlssls
slppl Sound. Part of the Third Texas Regiment,
stationed there to cruard the coast ao&inst Span
ish invasion, suddenly put ln its appearance at
New Orleans the other day and declared that It
could stand the place no longer, and had been
compelled to retreat before the most savasa
and bloodthirsty enemy American troops have
yet encountered the rare Lake Bonrae blind
mosciulto. The New Orleans papers poked a
sreat deal ot tun at the soldiers, who, as Tex
ans, were supposed to be able to stand any
thing; but those who lauahed knew little of
the fury of the "mauncouln."
At tho beginning of the war a Defence Com
mittee was organized in New Orleans, and con
sisted of leading business men. It was thon
feared that the Spanish might make a dash for
some American soaport, and as -Now Orleans
was particularly exposed the committee under
took to stir up the Secretaries ot War and the
Navy. One otthe dangerpoints was the Blgo
lets. Vessels ot sixteen feet draught can antor
Lake Pontchartraln by that ohannel and ap
proach within three miles ot the city, near
enough to bombard it. There are no defences
ot any kind, old Fort Pike haing been aban
doned and dismantled some years ago. The
Secretary of War was ' accordingly asked
to station troops there that would, at
least, mako some defence If the enemy
should attempt to enter tho lake. The
situation changed in a very short time
thereafter. 'It Mas evident that the Spaniards
did not propose to mako any dash on.our coast,
and the Committee ot Defence adjourned sin
die. About a month after its dissolution the
petition for a garrison at Blaolcts reached
the office ot tho Secretary ot War, and lu
tho latter part ot this month a detach
ment ot the Third Texas Volunteers was
ordered lo the little fishing village, or
rather Htatlon for thoro aro only three or
four hous there between Lake Pontchar
traln and ilorgue. Tho companies were very
cnthujlastio as thoy passed through New
Orleans, because they wore at least getting
nearer the enemy than the rest of tho regiment.
In less than a weok they came back, worn and
emaciated as though they had been through
the entire Santiago campaign, and had lout a
very considerable amount ot blood.
"No ono can Imagine what agonies wo suf
fered," ouo of mera said. " It seems strungo to
complain of so small a matter, butlife was un
endurable, persecuted as we were right and
lett by thoso Mends of inosqult jcs."

Opposite It are tho Ht. lternard marshes, cover
ing some -'.(MX) square tulles, an Ideal breeding
place for tn llttlo peats; but tho Toxuna were
particularly unfortunate as they struck a very
rare visitor in that section ths blind mcwaulto.
The latter is larger than the ordinary Insect
(even the b.R ones); it Is yellow rather than
gray or black, uud pulpy; it makes no warning
cry or buzz, but settles on its viqtlm. and keeps
bucking blood until It is killed. There Is
no ngutlug or tanning or driving It off.
It Is easy to kill, leaving a dot of blood behind
about theslzo of adlme ; but when on o has been
killing them all day. pounding and slapping
himself until ho is red with blood, tho process
becomes oxhaustlng, and he la Anally so worn
out that heceascstoughtand lets the mosquito
suck him as dry as a ain.iHro would and it la
not impossible that the lnentor of the vampire
was a man who had met a blind mosquito.
'Ihmbrundof the Insect is rare on the Lou
isiana or Mississippi coast een at ltigolots. and
puts in its appcuruueo not more than onco In
ten years. Its coming is due to a stoady and
violont wind trom the fit, Bernard and than
deleur swatnra and tho climate and tide con
ditions, winch hatch out largo quantities of the
insects. The stories told by the natlie ot
the scenes occurring during n blind mosquito
raid seemed too like Munchausen to bo be
lieved by any one who has not seen the planuo,
for thoy declare that In places whore the mo
qultoea aro driven by tho iviud against houses
or fonces tho cround.ls mo covered by their
corpses as to conceal the gross.
The Texas troops, not knowing what thoy
were being sent against and Imagining that nt
the worst they would moroly tight Spaniards,
went unprovided with mosquito netting and
suffered accordingly, and their sufff rings wore
so Intense that thoy were at once relieved from
duty at the itlgoleta and allowed to rejoin their
regiment. They can comfort themselves with
ths knowledge that thoy are not tho first troops
to be thus repulsed, for some years ago the
Mississippi State militia tried to hold a camp
at a point not ery far distant from rllgolets,
where tho mosquitoes aro far less savage, and
were compelled to abandon it.

From (As St. Louii Globe-Democrat
OuTRXis, Oklahoma. July 21. For a week '
the Pawnee and Otoellndlanslhave been visltlno i
the Osage tribe on their reservation ln the I
northeastern corner ot tho territory, and a
grand green-corn dance and dog feast haa been .,
tn progress. The great feature ot the encamp
ment, however, was an" old-time Indian wed. ,
ding, celebrated according to Osage uses and '
customs, probably the most novel, brilliant, ex- '
citing and entertaining wedding ceremony that
it haa ever been tho lot ot man to witness. The i
contracting parties were Paul Bed Eagle and ' 1
Ida Strikeaxe. full-blood members ot the Osage
tribe, who aro the rlonest people on the face ot ,
the earth, every member ot the tribe being 1
worth $25,000 in cash, ln addition to hundreds ifl
ot acres of fine land, and the ceremony rspre- II
sented all the pomp, splendor and dtcnltr char- fl
acteristJo of. the tribe. fl
As is the custom, a contract was recently t
made between the friends and paronta of the I
bride and the friends and rarenta ot thogroom. B
calling for so many horses for tho baud ot the S
brido. in this case the stipulation called I
for forty ot tho llnest ponies in the tribal
reservation. Ml this occurs ithout the knowl
edge or consent of the two to be wedded, and
not until then eddlng day did tbo bride know
who the groom was to bo, or tho crroom know
what maiden ot tho tribe as to bo his bride.
Four o'clock ln the afternoon was the hour J
for tho ceremonv, and at the uppolntfd time l
