Handsome Quarters for This Popular Organization. STORY OF ITS GROWTH. Now Has Many Strong Players in Membership. Plans Mapped Out for This Season. The beautiful new room3 of the To peka Whist club in the new Smith building at Ninth street and Kansas avenue will be formally opened Monday evening. October 27. Just six years ago the Topeka Whist club was organized at the Copeland E. L. Copeland, President of hotel, October 15. 1SSS. The organization was the outcome of a series of games played during the winter of 1895 and '96 at the different members' homes. The original twelve players, W. J. Blacfc, Harold T. Chase. A. D. Washburn, T. K. Pounds. Wm. Connors. E. A. Tirrill, Fred Freeman. J. A. Cole, Dr. W, N. West, J. C. Fulton. E. L. Copeland and W. K. Sterne, then met at the residence of E. Li. Copeland and arranged a series of games for the winter. ISefore the season was over Governor Morrill, State Treasurer Atherton and Attorney General Dawes played with the club. The first board of directors were the following well known whist players: F. W. Freeman, Dr. W. M. West, John XV. Nowors, E. L. Copeland, C. F. Jil son. J. Weiss and A. D. Washburn. That board selected the following offi cers for the first year: E. L. Copeland, president; Edwin Knowles, vice presi dent; F. W. Freeman, treasurer, and Dr. W. N. West, secretary. Mr. Copeland has remained president of the club ever since its organization nd has worked hard to increase the membership and keep up interest in the game. Dr. West also did good service as secretary. The club is a permanent one and Its strength is recognized by all the lead ing whist clubs of the middle states. Before the Kansas City Whist club dis banded, two exchange games a year were played and Topeka was able to hold her own, improving each year in th science of the game. Recently games have been played with Louis ville and St. Marys clubs and also with teams from Ottawa. Delegates have been sent to manv of the American Whist association annual meetings to learn the progressive styles of play. The club now holds a mem bership in the Central Whist associa tion comprising the western middle states and in August, 1901, Dr. W. N. West and Oscar D. Wolf won the prize buttons offered by that association In the. pair contest held at Council Bluffs, Iowa. Copeland and West were sent to Boston in the interest of the club and, by the way, that team has been one of the strongest in the west. This year, however, they have taken on new partners. Dr. West and T. H. Penne kamp will play as a team this season and as both are fine individual players they will surely make an excellent showing In the forthcoming tourna ments. Quite a number of other play ers have also made changes for this winter and there will accordingly be a lot of new teams made up. The Topeka tournaments have been won by the following teams: 1S97 w J. Black and T. E. Bounds; 1S98 L p' Smith and John D. Mason; 1899, 'w' N AVest and E.

D. Wash burn. "SYSTEM" WHIST. There is now under discussion, and has been for years, all over the country the question of "long-suit" system and "short suit" system. Mr. Lennard Lehigh of Philadelphia, former editor of "Whi.st Opinion," has recently written an article on the subje. t. a few extracts from which are given htre.-itli. He claims he has played with some of the best players in the United States who have helped to demonstrate "the superior ity of the long-suit game" and that they have opened with a singleton whilst hold ing two long suits, and an excellent open ing it was. Others he has frequently known to lead short with a four trump holding. He quotes the veteran player, Mr. Fisher Ames, as follows, and Mr. Ames probably comes very. nearly giving the true situa tion: "The advocates of all systems aim at the establishment and bringing in of a long stiit if possible. The fact is, how ever, that all good players for years past have used short suit openings more or less, and the only real difference between the two systems (which is not a real dif ference by the way) is that one opens with a short suit less often, and the other more often, than the other. Good players will win matches whether they describe their system as the 'long-suit or the 'short-suit' system or 'no system. All the new sys tems, 'short-suit, 'common sense,' etc., are based upon the long-suit game and in fact differ only in the matter of the open ing lead. They are the same system with the slight variation of more frequent short suit or intermediate original openings.' JTJST WHAT YOXT NEED. Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets.

RELIGION AND PATRIOTISM. In the Hebrew nation religion and pa triotism were nearly akin, and so it ought to be with every nation that has the right idea of God and government. It brings a higherstandardof civilization. Rev. Dr. Woods, Baptist, San Francisco. THE STANDARD OF MEASUREMENT. It is right to measure men only by what they do under circumstances. Some grovel amid earthly things, while others turn their thoughts toward the skies. Educa tion enables us to do what others will look upon with delight. Think of education as being what God would have us be. Pro fessor Faust, Dayton, O. KEEPING PACE WITH GOD. I think I see evidence that points to the fact that we are keeping pace with God. The future is bright with hope. The forces that are most essential to the growth and prosperity of national life are character ized by energy and expansion instead of weakness and decay. A spirit of unselfish ness prevails. Rev. Dr. Swift, Methodist, Chicago. HOPE MORE THAN DESIRE. Hope is more than desire. Desire may be born of indolence. Hope is the result of calculation, of evidence, of promise. All life finds expression in aspiration. Its progress depends on hope. Where there is no- hope there can be no life.

Hope is Christian buoyancy as well as the means of salvation. It abides when faith has been finally crushed. Its minis try is always gentle and kind. It haa brought luster to many an eye dimmed with tears and gladness to hearts that have been crushed and broken. It is pos sible for one to lose faith in another and yet remain hopeful of his final destiny. Rev. George Lloyd, Congregationalist, St. Louis. MAN'S DUAL OBLIGATION. Every man, whether he will or no, a under inexorable obligation to God and man. The old preachers used to argue that we all belong to God by right of creation, by right of redemption and by right of preservation. One greater than they, St. Paul, declared1 that "we are not our own, we are bought with a price," and therefor expects us to glorify God in our bodies and in our spirits, which are God's. Rev. Dr. Alonzo Monk, Methodist, Atlanta, Ga. WHOM SHALL WE REVERENCE. Now, what man shall we reverence? The perfect man. I admire the theology of Paul, the logic of Aristotle, the precepts of Moses, the code of Napoleon, the wis dom of Plato; I thrill to the eloquence of Pericles, the courage of John, the devotion of Stephen; I marvel at the brilliancy of Newton, the erudition of Darwin; I love the music of Beethoven, the poetry of Shakespeare; I stand in awe before th sphinx and the pyramids, "Transfigura tion," the Dome of St. Peter's; I revere but one man, and that is the Man so endowed with all the virtues we love to see in men and women that it Is no empty title to call him Master, Saviour, Lord; aye, through nature to me, fhrough men to the Man Jesus Christ, through him to God. Rev. Cyrus Townsend Brady, Epis copalian, Philadelphia. Relief in Six Hours. Distressing Kidney and Bladder Dis ease relieved in six hours by "NEW GREAT SOUTH AMERICAN KIDNEY CURE."
