CRITICAL CHECK Kit MOVES
One Phase of he Panama Canal's
Operation Suggested by a
Question of Navigation.
Bridge problem No. 253, by A. 1. Stras
burger, wns designed to brine to the
attention of the beginner tlio Impor
tance of unblocking tactics early In the
piny, so us to provide for situations that
might arise Liter. - Unfortunately, the
cracks discovered that this unblocking
was not absolutely necessary for the so
lution of thu problem, although It looked
very pretty. Hero Is the distribution:
O X ft 4

0 10 7 3 2
There are no trumps and 55 Is in the
lead. Y and 7. want live tricks against
The solution Q-'idontly depends on fore
lu discards froi B In such a manner that
Z shall discard after him, nnd udapt him
aelf to the situation. The solution is
Cor Z to lvd a small diamond, which A
may win with the uce or pass. The au
thor's solution Is for Y to play one of
his hlaher diamonds In either case, so
as to unblock. If A plays the aco Y
gives HQ thu nueen. Now if A leads a
mall spade Y wins and returns It, 11
lettlrw go a heart. 7. u heart und a club.
This puts A In with the spade ten. If
lie leads a diamond Y wins with the king
and leads tho queen of clubs, forcing the
discard from 11, which enables . to keep
two winning diamonds; or two hearts,
and diamond for reentry. If A leads
a, clutt Instead of a diamond, the discard
Is forced from li at once, because Y wins
the ell, and after ho leads the king
of diamonds, H Is left with two hearts
and one diamond, or two diamonds and
If A leads n high club after winning
the first ttlck with the ace of diamonds.
Y lets hltu hold the trick. Another club
and the spade queen forces H to give up
a heart or make three diamonds good
In Z's hand. If H blanks tho ace of
hearts Y puts him in. forcing him to lead
diamonds up to Y's king, and tho return
of the four enables 7. to make the ten of
If A passes the first diamond trick,'
playing tho Jack, the author's idea is for
Y to win with tie queen und lead the
queen of spades and then the king of
diamonds. A can make his spade trick
at once, or he can lead a high club. If
the club. Y passes It, and lets him ltad!
again, anil these two tricks force the
discards from 11.
While the unblocking play In the dia
mond suit was intended to bo one of the
keys to the solution, Y and Z can win the
required number of tricks without It.
Suppose A lakes tho tlrst trick with the
ace and Y plays small. Whatever A leads,
Y wins and proctcds to make three more
tricks at once, with the two top diamonds
and the two black queens.
Hy that time both 11 and . will be down
to three lnuits apiece, or two hearts nnd
ji diamond. Whichever It Is, all that II
can make Is two heutts, as he must Ien
lilmself with a losing card in one or other
of the red suits. If A pasee.s the Urt-t
diamond trick, Y can win with the queen
and return a small diamond, Instead of
the spade queen or the high diamond.
Now the same plays come about as be
fore, Y winning whatever A leads, to as
always to give '. the discards after II.
The following solved the pioblem ac
cording to the composer's Idea:

Those who tried to get It by starting
with n club overlooked A's Immediate lead
of a club, If left with thu trick, which ho
must be, or he makes three clubs. Now
y must lead u diamond some time or
other, and A Is In with the clubs.

Problem No. 253, by II. n. Lyman,
presents one of those positions which nra
so Instructive to the beginner through
directing his attention to the importance
of moves that must be made with a view
to providing for a situation that will not
arise until much later In the play.

The importance of white's second move,

by letting black make a weak defence.

nnd Its problems, nnd Is wondering lf
the thing will work, the following little
problem In, canal navigation may prove
botti Instructive nnd Interesting.
During tho dry spell last summer old
Joe Winders, who tends the big lock on
the Gownnus Canal, was untitled that a
licet of some llfty-odd empties would bo
locked through In the course if n week
nnd he became alarmed at tho scarcity
of water, so he wrote to the engineer
When tho engineer cntno up nnd sat
down to tlguro It our, old Jon explained
to him that If empties took much mora
water to lock their) through than full
boats would, he thought they would run
out of water, lis there was only Just
enough for the full boats now.
This led the engineer to set down these
figures: The lock Is 24 feet wide and
80 feet long. It Is IS feet deep and the
lower level of tho cnnal Is 7 feet, so tho
lift Is 11 feet, The regulation canal
boats are flat bottomed, 13 feet wide and
40 long and draw 14 Inches empty but
fp feet whin loaded. The deck Is 1 1 feet
by 48 nnd Is 6 feet above the bottom,
the sides and ends being Inclined but
How much more water In cubic feet
will It tako to lock fifty of these boats
through the canal empty than It would
take to lock them through when they were
MARKER SET BY JEFF DAVIS.
M-raterr of Post nt Junction
Three Mates K t plallieil.
Sioux Falls, S. I)., Dec. B.- After In
vestigations, cun'tlntlcd nt Intervals for a
period extending over several ".cars by Dr.
W. Ucrmain and Joe Klrhy of this city, an
Iron post situate-! in the middle of a
road cast and south of the illngo of
Itowcna, east of Sioux Falls, has been
Identified as a mark set by Jefferson
Davis, later President of the Southern
Confederacy, to designate the Junction
points of Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa.
At the time of placing the historic post
In Its present position Jefferson Kavls
was tho head of the Fedenil aimy In
the Northwest and was stationed at a
military post situated on the piesent site
of I'ralrle dil Chlen. Wk This was sev
eral years before the commencement of
the civil war. Davis was dincted by the
War Department to establish the bound
aries of Wisconsin. Minnesota, lnw.i and
Dakota Tcirltory. The post was driven
Into position In 1S59 and has remained
there ever since, the i!o eminent never
tlndlug It necessary to change tho bound
ary, so accurate was the work
In his report to the War Department
concerning tho survey Jefferson Davis
wrote that within a radius of loo miles
of the point where he set the post wa
ttle richest soli in the world. Tim pie
dlctlon doubtless looked like a wild one
at the time, but the excellence of his
Judgment has ben fully proved dining
thu years which have rolled by slme he
penned his picdletlon, for the terrltoiy
referred to by him now each car adds
millions of dollats to the wealth of the
nation In the annual production of new
wealth In the form of crops of all kinds,
live stock and other IndustrUs.
John Towers, one of the eatllet settlers
In the region near Sioux Falls, states
that ho remembers sc. Ing the jiost as far
back; as li65, but never knew until the
present time that It was placed there by
Jefferson Davis. No white man of that
tlmo knew anything concerning the Iron
post, and it Is considered somewhat re
markable that the Sioux Indians, who
then roamed the prairies of Dakota, did
not steal It for Its value as old iron.
Dr. (iermaln had the mystery as to the
post In his mind for Unity .vuais lie
commenced years ago to trace Its h.s
tory. l'verr rally settler was questioned
and no pone'blo clue was left uninves
tigated. F.Win thu Sioux Indians who In
the early ilA made their homo In this
part of the territory wire quest. oned. but
they knew nothing as to wh'.i or by
whom the poat had been placed tn its
present location. Joe VIrbjr, who s a

,fi tho mystery of the post.
Hecently the attention of Dr. ieni,.ni
and Mr. Klrhy was directed to the old?
and musty records in the War Depart
ment at Washington, and after nn i x
haustlve research the ongin of the post
was discovered from the reports made
by Jefferson Davis to the War Depart
ment at the national capital, the old re
ports yet being in a good state of preser
vation. Thus the ni.vstciy of moro than
half n century was solved.

The Whist Club has Included In Us
latest cdltlun of the laws for nuctlon
bridge nn entirely separate coda for
playing threo hand. This variation of the
standard gamo would probably be much
tnoro generally played If Ita principles
were better understood.
Most persons Imagine that three hnnd
aactlon is nothing but a makeshift when
thne pluvcis mo imablu tn find a fourth
to make up a jubber, but such Is far
frsm being the case. Three hand nuctlon
Is considered by some persons so much
superior to tho ordinary game thrit thev
Merer It, even when they huvo a foui-tii
man to make up the table.
The ' game should not be confounded
with tho trench game of mort, In whlcli
tl.-ic are four players, )U, onlv ,,.,.,.
tako part In the play or share In the
stukis. in mort tlieie is a legulir
rotation of partners with and against

to the highest bidder, who plavs alone

The Wldst Club has d.rMed that after
the lowest cut has m.nln hl choice of
seats and cards the. next lowest shall
tike his seat to the left. Thla Is i,n
nipiovemeiit on the French custom, which
Is to seat the stronger player of the
opposition on the light. .s there might
! considerable difference of opinion as
to which was the stioriirer of i ,.i,.
and no one has the right to dee.de It. t tic
new law is a decided Improvement.
. mii ii.ino are qeail as usual, the
hand dealt tu the vacant sat opposite tho
dealer being called the dummy for the
tlmo being, until It Is decided who shall
Play It. The Irregularities are governed
by the same laws as those given for the
deal In the onllnary game.
The dealer makes the first declaration
and each player to the left then bids In
turn, but entirely on his own account,
basing his expectation of assistance on
whit ho will tlnd In the ilummv. This Is
not always as much a matt,er" of specu
lation as one might Imagine, the bidding
of thu others being often a guldo as to
what dummy's cards must be.
Take this case: The dealer starts with
two clubs, sfcoml plajcr says two hearts.
The third player holds four clubs to the
king, four hearts to the nee. four ilia
moiids to the king queen, and bids two
royals, although he has only tho nine of
p.ides In his hand. The spadis must bo
n the dummy nnd dummy must bu short
,ii clubs .or hearts.
There nro no partnerships In tho bid
ding, so that no declaration bv one plaver
Is ev.r supported by another. It Is 'an
