Played for His Life.
By H. N. Crellln.
Sultan Murad was devoted to the gams
of chess. To say, without flattery, that he
was a good player Is to say that be was a
man of considerable Intellectual power.
But Sultan Murad, In bis play, bad two
railings. He liked to have an adequate
stake on the event of the game, and he
could very 111 brook defeat.
These weaknesses are always trylng.bat
In the case ot so powerful and absolute a
monarch they rendered the game one of
exceeding danger. Ta Jose pretty con
stantly meant ruin; to win loo often might
easily mean death. Under Uicbc circum
stances It became difficult for bis majesty
to rind an adversary, and au Invitation to
a contest came to nave as fatal a signifi
cance nnd to lie as mnch dreaded, and. If
possible, avoided, as the post or Grand
Vizier bad been in the reign of Eelltn the
Grim. So many had Install they possessed,
and some of their lives into the bargain,
that every high officer of state shunned
as far ns possible the dangerous hi mot
or facing bis master across a chess unard.
Naturally, -no official could with more
difficulty escape the ordeal than the Grand
Vizier himself, and. Indeed, It was owing
principally to Ibis cause tliat so many oc
cupants of this high post had Tapidly suc
ceeded one another during the rclgn of
It so uapnened that the present Grand
Tizer was as keen an enthusiast for the
game as theSultanhlmself. This had been
probably bis chief recommendation for the
ofrice; and, being a born gatnblerand uf a
constitutionally bold and reckless nature,
he was always ready to play, counting
neither Ibo cost nor Uu: hazard.
He played on -with varying fortune, but
generally losing, until he bad staked and
lost everything he possessed or could scrape
At length, ons afternoon, on the Sultan
saying to him, "Well, Grand Vizier, and
what dost thou venture on this new game?"
Ho answered ruefully: "My Padishah, ex
cept the garments in which I stand before
thee aud which are thine already, there is
of a truth no one thing I possessed that I
have not .staked and lost, and only by the
bounty ot thy majesty shall I and Fatmta,
my daughter nnd only child, find bread or
shelter, so great is the skill of your majesty
al this Infernal game."
"Come, Vizier," said Murad. "If it be so
bad with thee as that I will tell thee what
thou shalt do. "Thou shalt on thy pattstake
thy daughter, and J on my part will stake
the lovclicat odalisque In my harem, and
10,000 gold pieces to boot, and we will
play yet another game."
The Grand Vizier heard this ioposal to
stake his daughter. Jus only child, with dis
may; but be knew bis Imperial majesty too
w ell to venture a rt-fuaL
Therefore they plajed and he lost. Then
the unhappy father, la the bitterness of his
heart, said. "O.'i, Sultau, J have my head
only, and that i at thy mercy, but if thou
wllton thy part stake my daughter, whom
thou has Just won. I will wager my head
Vizier," said Murad, gravely, "Ihe stakes
are hardly even, but If thou wishest It so It
And once more -They played, and again the
Then Mured laughed and said: "Be not
nlarmed; I give thee thy last stake, for thou
hast never flinched, but hast ever played
boldly and -well. Only this understand; -we
have played our last game, and thou holdest
thy office ouly until 1 appohrt another in
After this final defeat of his courageous
and indomitable Grand Xizler Murad -was
hard pul tolt to find any suitable opponent
to face him at tlie cbess board. All men
shirked the dangerous honoT, and the un
happy "Vizier or Pacha commanded to un
dertake the perilous duty found it difficult
lo guess whether victory or defeat might
prove more perilous.
At length the Sultan bethought him ot a
plan which eemed to promise more diver
sion than could be obtained from encounter
ing these timorous and unwilling adversa
ries, lie caused it to be proclaimed that any
man might challenge his Majesty to a game
of chess, the conditions being that the chal
lenger staked his own bead against the
office of -Grand Virier.
Al the time of issuing the proclamation
there lived In Adrianopole a family consist
ing of three -persons, father, mother and
one son. The latter was a young man of
pleasing manners, a good presence and of re
markable energy and intellectual rapacity.
The news of the Sultan's offer had reached
this retired and -secluded family, and the
son, whose name was Osman, nnd who had
long been a devotedstudentof thegame.had
Jusl announced tohls father and mother his
determination to -proceed to the capital and
pul bis life on the hazard of the event.
To this both fa titer and motlicr -vehemently
nnd very naturally objected and
tried by every argument they could think
ot to dissuade him; bjttbe young man would
not be gainsaid, and at length he set out
on Ills dangerouB adventure
Whin Osman mib ushered Into the pres
ence of the Sultan, and the object of bis
coming explained, Murad Jilmself felt some
regret that so handsome and Intelligent a
yonth should risk his life In a combat ap
Butf irst, by order of tne Sultan, a sumpt
uous repast was served, and at his invitation
Osman partook of It with lnm. Then, after
a period of rest during the midday heat, the
chessmen were brought out, nnd amid a
circle oMiigh dignitaries and officials ot the
palace, the youthful stranger faced his Im
perial lord -and -essayed thetlitf icult aud, as
It appeared to all present, the foolhardy
task of checkmating him.
Only fiv e moves had liecn made, during
breathless silence, when Osman calmly pro
nounced the word "checkmate,-" and on
inspection the fact was dierly establish-!,
AB were astonished. And the Sultan
amazed and almost stupefied, was filled
"What," he cried, "beaten, nnd In five
moves, by a mere boy. "Whatlstbcmeanlng
tit this? Say, what tlemon hath liclped
thee, or by -what power of enchantment
hast thou been able to accomplish the
"Sire," cried Osman, "this opening of the
?ame is a new one. Being completely unex
pected. It had given me, for this time, the
victory, which I can never hope a gain to at
tain over so great and experienced a player
as your Majesty."
These words somewhat mollified the Sol
tan, and after having sat silent for a few
minutes, his -wrath being partly appeased,
"By whatever means It has been gained,
Incontestably It has "been won, and since
thou must have paid thy forfeit had thou
lost, Allah forbid that thou shouIdstXall to
receive the reward that I have promised."
He thereupon commanded that Osman
should Jje arrayed in Ihe gorgeous robes of
the office, and -nrmmonlng all the officers
and high dignitaries of the seraglio to
tbe-Hall ot theThrone, he presented Osman
to them as Grand Vizier. Then, as he dis
missed him. he jald.ignlficantly, "Grand
"Vizier, to-morrow we -will play agahxT
In the evening Osman sat In the official
palace of the Grand "T'lrlcr, and the Sets
Efrendl.-an old friend of blslather, b his
Invitation, sat at meat with him, ana they
discussed whatbadpassctlandwbatwnz to
"Osman," tald the JUls Effendi, "thou
plajed a bold game ai.d won it; yet I know
too well the character axA deposition of
Murad to 1 able sincerely to coi-graluialc
thee. To day thou art victorious ai-d Giard
Vizier, to-morrow thou mayest only too
probably be defeated and Slalu."
"Iteis Effendi," answered Osman, "each
must yield to fate; but formy part, I have
no Intention of playing a game ngalntt the
Sulian to morrow "
'Thou hast no I mention!" cried theRels
Effendi, in aniaziment. "Nay, bnt he has
the intention toTJoriiiuand thee to t!o i o.nnd
art thou so simple as to suppose that tbou
bast power to refuse?"
Osman, however, said calmly:
"Jfj'our Majesty willpennlt me to express
my opinion, I should say let no man knowur
this conspiracy, for t-v en the rumor of insur
rection Is apt to nnj-cttle pien's minds nnd
spread thelnfectlonof revolt, Thcplanorthe
conspirators at present Is secret; let It never
be declared; crush It in the bud. At this 1
stage a very small force wlllsurficc, even
as the beginning ot n fire, which neglected
would waste a city, may be quelched with
the contents of a bucket. L?t me, your
Majesty, take 500 Janissaries with me, pro
ceed with all speed to Adrlanople, and two
hours after my arrival the leaders of the
plot will beexecuteilandlheinovemcnt will
be at an end."
The Sultan approved this reasoning and
the adrlce given by his new Grand
Vizier, and bade hira start at once on the
mission he had proposed.
Within an Jiour the Grand VIzier,with his
escort of 500 men, left the capital: Osman,
asheparted with lilsfriend. the RelsEfiendl,
observ ed simply: "The game ot chess Is ad
journed." The Grand Vizier, on reaching Adrlan
ople, proceeded Immediately to the bouse
of the governor ot Roumalla, and had him.
executed on the spot. Having also put
to death several of his creatures and offi
cials who had been guilty of the grossest
tjranny and extortion, and also those
who bad been In any way Implicated in
the projected rising, he replaced, to the
great joy of all, bis rather In bis former
.csitlo!i of governor of RouZialia, and has
tened back to report to bis majesty that
the province was now perfectly contented
The Sultan was delighted with the
promptitude and energy of bis new Grand
Vizier. He began from this time to rely
on bis judgment and to take his advice
on every iccaslon, and for a time Osman
ruled the empire with unquestioned and
conspicuous success. Murad uften com
manded the presence or his Grand Vizier
at the chess board, but the stakes to be.
played for were always fixed within the
bounds of .reason and moderation, and,
whether the games wer" lost or won and
Osman was too prudent often to win
the terrible claws of the imperial tiger
remained sheathed in velvet.
One alternoon he took occasion on win
ning a game to address Osman as follows:
"My good Grand Vizier, I notice that in
these little friendly contests of ours you
seldom win. Now. I like not to play with
one who puts not out bis full strength."
With a mocking smile, he -continued:
-"Probably the stakes are now too trivial
to make It worth while .fur you to exert
your run powers. This must be remedied.
I on my part will stake one of my daugh
ters; you shall, Jf you win, have her to
wife, and with her a dowry of 200 purses
of gold. And you on your side must, I sup
pose, play for the stake you played for
at first, and then, you -remember, you won
In five moves, and easily enough."
"Tour Majesty," said Osman, -who saw at
nce that the temper ot the Sultan had
changed, and who entertained no doubt but
that his own lata was already determined
upon,-"whatever etakes you decree must, of
course, be accepted. Tint this time I have no
new gambit to pit against your unrivalled
and ever-victorious BklU."
The Saltan appreciated the compliment,
but it did not cause him to alter his decision.
The afternoon of the next day was fixed as
the time appointed for the playing of this
fateful game. During the interval Osman
pondered deeply on the beat course to pur
sue in the predicament in -which he now
found himself. He was la little doubt that
even though he should win this game, an
other equally momentous wouldlollow.and
that nothing could avail to keep his head
suspected, determined to get rid ot him.
Yet it wbb clear that under these drcum
Etances, to win would probably be less Im
mediately fatal than to loBe; It mlglrt for a
short time delay, if It could not avert,
the end that seemed inevitable. Therefore,
when, on the following afternoon, the
Grand Vizier faced the Sultau at the chess
board, each of these good players sat down
determined to win.lf he pCtsihly could man
They were not alone. A large number of
the great officers and high officials of the
state and the palace safwatchlng the game
which might so suddenly terminate the brief
and brilliant career of one ofthe players.
"I am hardly so country bred as to tup
pose that," said Osmau; "nevertheless,
I venture to hope I hat 1 may be able so to
order things that Murad shall not demand
a game to-morrow.'
"And how Is that to be accomplished?"
demanded the Iteis XffendL "What dark
scheme Is this thou hast in hand?"
"At present I ha vc no scheme cumpleted,"
said Osman, "but only the outline or
Idea ot the tactics "winch must beTesorted
to. My aim must be to get some aftairof

In him no other than his own father. Alter
having lieen warmly welcomed by both
Osmau and the Iteis Effendi the old man
was pressed to say how It came to pass
that he had undertaken so lung a Journey.
"My sou," he replied, "after the de
parture neither thy mother, nor, sooth to
"ay, myself, could control the anxiety and
apprehension we suffered on thine atcount.
Therefore, having sold the ring-, the last

order to provide the small lund necessary
for my Journey, I followed thee to learn
the result ot thy rash attempt. Happily
it appears that thou host won and not lost
the game, yet whether thou art not still

"That thy son 1 even nowluexlrcmc peril
of his life tlicre" tanbe no question," said
the "Eels Effendi. 'To-morrow he must
again play, unless, indeed, becan manage to
divert the Sultan's attention and alter

"Thou art Indeed rartunate," said the Rcls
Erfcnill, "lo Le In possession or that infor

When, next morning, Osman.inliLsca pacl
tyas Grand Vizier. was Uosctcd withMurad,
he hastened u Impart lo him the lmclllfcence
lie liad received concerning the projected
rising and the design of the rebels to march
upon ihe capital.
On hearing this account, Murad seized
with panic, talked of raising a large army
and at onic marching upon the disaffected
Every move was followed with the keenest
interest. The game was TougtA with great
skill and Indomitable patience by both con
testants. It lasted long, and the chances
of victory and defeat stin held an even bal
ance. It was the Grand Vizier's turn. He mred
his piece, when suddenly 11 flashed upon him
lhat the move was a mistaken one. Vir
tually it sealed his fate. Unless the Sultan
should by some extraordinary obtuseness

Mr. Warren of Texas.
Henry Warren, the proprietor of the
Azteo ranch in Texas, when asked how
many acres tils property contained, quietly
answered without a change tn his counten
ance. "One million acres." He did not
claim to have an enormous amount ot
live stock, modestly stating that he had
only 50,000 cattle on his ranch, and fox
their care employed only seventy vaqueros.
Naturally you would depict this Texan
rancher in your mind as wearing a broad
brimmed felt hat, swaggering or gait, and
loud and drawling of voice. The reality,
however, is directly opposite.

A most remarkable thing In connection
with the drought is the fact that many wens
that a few weeks ago were almost dry
have within the past few da-js filled up
to a large extent and are yielding an
abandanc supply. Branches that for weeks
have been entirely dry have within the past
day or so filled, and this before a drop of
rain had fallen. This Is regarded by many
as a most remarkable phenomenon, but
some of (he older Inhabitants claim that
they have seen such occurrences before,
particularly during a long drought, and
just before rain began to fan. They say
that as soon as they noticed the Increased
water supply In their -wells they felt sure
it would rain in a -few days, and that one
of Ihe severest dronglits felt In this neigh
borhood was practically over.
An old darty. Jiving on the farm of Mr.

heard a bubbling sound above him, as
though made by running water, and a
hody of water came rippling down, and
that the branch has been fun ever since.
