The Gerne of Chess.
Chess's said to^have been invented by, a
Brahmin, for the purpose of reforming an
I n chun King; but ins?meted by those who
had g'one before bim, he wa? sensible lna>
lesson would not prove of any service
until the prince-should make ; the applica?
tion of it to himself, sud not think it waa
done by'another. With this view hs. ,
invented the game of chess, where the
king, though the mest considerable of all
the pieces, is impotent to attack, as well as
to defend himself against* bis enemies, with-*'
out the assistance of subjects and soldiers.
The game became famous; the king would
learn it; the Brahmin was pitched upon to.
teach it to him, and under the pretence of
explaining to bim the mles cf^ tho .game,
aud showing bim the^ekill required to make
use of the other pieces for the king's
defence, be made him perceive truths which
be had hitherto refused to bear. He mada
an application bimseif of the Brahmin's,
lessons, and cow, convinced tbat in the peo?
ple's love' of their king consisted all of .
his strength, be altered "bis conduct, and by
that prevented th? misfortunes that threat?
ened him. .
The Brahmin was left to the choice of his
reward, and be desired that the number of
grains of corn which the number of squares
on the chess board should produce m i ?ht
be given bim, one for the fit st, four for lue.,
second, six for the third, and so on
doubling always to the.sixty-fourth. But
when the calculation was made, it was
found that the king bad engaged himself in
a grant, for the performance of wjiick
neither all his treasures .nor bia vast do?
minions were sufficient? The Brahmin
lsid hold of this opportunity lo convince
bim oi what importance it was for kings to
be dh their gu Bid against those who are
always about them.
F;om India the game parsed into Persia,
where it received ibe ?ame of ecket tengi,.
pr game of the king or ahab-. The piece
now called the queen was the visier, which
was akerwaida corrupted to yjerge, virga,
and abet wards to lauy or queen. This
piece, at fust, could move only as the
pawns. The French gallantry, it is said,
extended the prerogatives oi the lady, and
made ber tb? mott considerable piece Ju
the game, "The bi>bt<p iii Irdia WHS an ele?
