Ev>er\j Card a /Message.
Sir William Pole, the great whist philoso
pher, says:
The player Is bound to bear constantly Id mind
that every rard he plays conveys a message to bis
partneras distinctly as If it were written In a letter;
and that if he makes this message untrue by care
lessness or uunecegsarily violating the ordinary
rules of play, even in so small a particular as the
tbrowlnic away of useless cards, be imperils the
joint interests and renders'the great instrument, of
action (the combination of the bunds) of uncertain
eff*ct. Th« necessity of regularity and caw in
the play Is curiously illustrated by the character
of truthfulness generally ascribed 10 It. The
player who violates this regularity, by playing a
card different from that which, as a matter of
routine, 1113 partner would expect him to play, is
said to play '•false," and the card ho played is
called a "false card." • Clay says to »uch a person:
"You have told me. as plainly as wh st language
can speak, such and such a fact deduclble from
your play. In no other-position of life would you
tell me that which is untrue; wny do you so here?"
He adds: . •,■-,:- ..-.- ..»,.,.,- >*■ i,v...-v..•;--,-,. •.
••The best whist-player is he who plays tße game
In (be simplest ■ way, and I who always . bears in
mind toe great maxim, that It is of more import
ance to give information to his partner than 10
deceive his adversary, r ■ ,
"lvalue that player , the most who never de
ceives me, and whose unvarying certainty enables
me, as It were, to play his cards with almost the
same knowledge 01 them as I bave of my own."

WHIST
Trick 1. Souths hand is of little value un
less he can bring in tbe club suit. He is liable
to lose one trick by leading low instead of
ace, but tbe command of the suit may be of
great va'ue to him.
Trick 3. North can read the entire club suit.
| Neither adversary has called, since West has
j opened up with a plain suit and East has fol
i lowed with the deuce. AH the clubs under
! the six, therefore, are in Souths hand; and,
I since he would not have led low from X, J,
10 and so many small cards, bis three cards
above tha six are A, J, 10. The X is, ac
cordingly, bare in the hands of one of the ad
versaries.
North therefore leads trumps to make the
clubs if possible. As the J is turned South
plays 10, and returns Q in the next trick.
West plays the 9 for the purpose of mis
leading South into the idea that the final com
mand of trumps is with East, and if possible
dissuading him from returning the lead.
Trick 7. North, having exhausted the
trumps, returns the C. 9, and South reaps the
reward of tbe patience and foresight exhibited
by his original low lead.
And the overplay shows a loss of six tricks.

Table 2. South at this table opens with the
conventional lead of ace.
Trick 2. The fall in the first trick does not
show which band is out, and South can do
nothing except to con ti nuc his suit. Be leads
fourth best of those remaining although this
is of little consequence.
Trick 4. North can read five clubs remain-
Ing in Souths hand, leaving but five cards to
be divided between the three other suits. It
isnotsnft) for him to return hearts as the ad
versaries are in full control, and he cannot
tell whether South is out of the suit or not;
there is nothing whatever for him to lead
trumps for, and he is driven to open bis nu
merically long but utterly wealc suit of
diamonds.
TrlcK 5. East perhaps had better lead trumps
i at this point as the heart suit Is with his part
ner, and he has a fair control of diamonds. He
; has reason : to believe, however, that North is
strong , in trumps, and i dislikes to lead ut> to
him. ; , He prefers to retain the tenace Jin dia
monds and so leads to his partner's previously
established suit.

double purpose of informing his partner with
certainty tbat the clubs are all with him and
inviting him to carry on the cross ruff. North
accordingly out-trumps the turn card and re
turns nearrt to force South.
Trick 8. North again trumps high in order
to make the queen if it is in Soutli's hand by
forcing with the diamond.
Trick 10. West trumps with his best trump
in order to shut out any small trump iv
Norths hand and prevent the forcing of his
partner's Jack. The fall of the trey shows him
the desirability of continuing with trumps in
the eleventh trick. The remaining tricks of
course fall to East.
Had East at trick 5 led a trump he would
have saved a trick and made a gain of six over
the play at the other table.
Editorial Comments. — At the Trist Club
rooms last Wednesday afternoon our whist
editor explained why the fourth best should
be led from ace and four or five others not in
cluding king or queen, Jack. We also stated
all whist-playefs of the first rank indorsed
this play. The above is a practical example o[
a low-card- lead from eight in suit. This deal
came in play in President Barney's whist
club in Providence, R. 1., a short time ago.
TRIST DUPLICATE WHIST CLUB.
Last Tuesday evening the first twenty-four
of the forty-eight deals played in the Rideout
trovhy match between the Vallejos and Oak
lands was put into play. The average scores
made North and South at eight tables were
150. Vallejo North ana Bouth made on the
same deals 153 and Oakland's 144. At the
Trist Club in one of the bands North opened
with ace spades, followed by jack — East
dropped the ten and West the eight, South
playing the king. South with four trumps and
one spade declined to lead a trump and came
with a small diamond. After the deal was
played a discussion arose in the "whist
morgue " The North player made this state
ment, which is correct, that there was no ex
cuse for not leading trumps, from his holding
ho should always do so, and even fr om three
with an established suit in partner's hand.
"Exceptions" were taken. Our advice to all
whist «tudents is never fail to lead a trump at
that stage of the game, from four or three and
oftentimes less.

I Tchama street. The occasion was one of mirth,
I merriment and sonp, at the close of which the
1 guests were regaled with a dainty supper.
Those present were : Mrs. Adolph Fine, Mrs.
R. G. Hesketh, the Misses Mamia and Nellie
Hesketh, Master Willie Hesketh, Chris Wil
liams, A. Krause, R. G. Hesieth, T. Deany,
George Hesketh, T. H. Mathies, Professor
Adolph Fine.
Last Thursday evening Mr. and Mrs. A. P.
Davies tendered a reception to the former asso
ciates of Mr. Davies, who, after a period of fif
teen years' service in tbe general office of the
Royal Insurance Company, has severed his
connection and become the junior member of
. the firm of Helbing & Davies. During the re
past a handsome silver tea service wan pre
sented to Mr. and Mrs. Davies by the employes
J of the office in a brief speech by J. O. Thomas
i and Mr. and Mrs. Davies both responded with
j neat and well-turned replies. Rolla V. Watt,
I together with other members of the staff,
I added felicitous remarks to the occasion.
On Wednesday evening, September 30, a sur
prise party was tendered to Miss Mamie Ed
monds by a number of her young friends at
her residence, 1610 Baker street.
Arrangements were made for Miss Edmonds
to spend the day away from home, and advan
tage was taken of her absence to decorate the
house.
In the handsome parlors autumn flowers
were used for decorative purposes. Bright
nasturtiums and clusters of golden marigolds
were arrayed tastefully with a delicate net
work of greenery.
Palms were, arrayed throughout the recep
tion hall, where a string orchestra discoursed
many popular and catchy airs.
Amid such inviting and pleasant surround
ings the hours passed very pleasantly In
dancing, games, vocal and instrumental music.
brary Association will give a progressive whis
or euchre reception and party in their room
in the Mercantile Library building on Wednes
day evening, October 21. No one that re
ceives an invitation should stay away. It is
given for the benefit oi the library.
We note that the erstwhile chess cham
pion (?) Mr. Thompson has seen fit to withdraw
from the tournament at present going on at
the Mechanics' Institute. The only known
reason for this "move" was the fact that in
his first game with a young "green" player he
was at least not gstting the best of the play.
We are confident no whist-player would act as
unsportsmanlike in a similar case.
William Mill Butler, auther of "Whist In a
Nutshell," is about to issue a new edition, and
has invited our whist editor to assist in its re-
Vision. It would be a most excellent idea to
wait until after the seventh congress. The
laws will be revised, and the same should ap
pear in every whistbook.
R. F. Foster, whist editor of the New York
Sun, writes us that the Rocheste* (N. Y.j Post-
Express has started a whist column. In a
postscript Mr. Foster advises us not to read
"Boardman's Winning Whist," as it is full of
short-suit heresy. If Mr. Foster will read the
Sunday Call's whist articles he will see there
the position we take as regards "short-suit ism."
