Hero In the position or tlio cards." And ho Inld out the cards as follows: sritms Moslem no. I n. Cryptogram. V Bridge problem No. 161, the flrat of the three that tho doctor propounded to his friends, the lawyer and the stock broker, presents a curious Illustration of the Importance of a single card In determining tho result of a Jiand and shows how completely tho plan of attack must bo changed1 when a card supposed to bo In ono hand Is likely to be found In another. This was the distribution of the cards as laid out by the' doctor In the first lac: CJ 4.. ...... OA 10 7 X 7 6 O10 Oft 3 I y I 10 U B J 5 OK 0 5 9 4 3 I Z I VX. 6 0 je a' There am no trumps and 7. Is In the lead. He bets ho can get six tricks out of seven against any defence open to A and U, now that they have allowed him to transpose tho Jack and ten of hearts, as the ten was originally In the dummy and II had the. Jack. Tho solution Is for 7. to lead the smaller of his two diamonds, Y win nine: A's king with tho nee and return ing the seven, so us to keep the command of tho suit over It and at the same time to forco a, discard from A, while 7, wins thorlck and gets In the lead ngnln. If A dlscurds a heart It Is clear that ho makes two hearts good for tricks In ZV hand and Z will tako those two tricks nt once. After that Y can afford to overtake 5i's queen of spades with his king nnd make tho sixth trick with his ten of diamonds. If A discards a club Instead of a heart on the second trick, Z leads tho king of hearts at once and A must hold on to the queen, or tho six will be good. In this variation, when 7. lads tho queen of spades for tho next trick, Y allows it to win. Then Z comes along with the losing heart and A gets the trick, but he Is compelled to lose two tricks In spades, ns Y has the major tenacc over him In that suit. In this variation, when A discards the club on tho return of the diamond, 7. must be very careful to lead the king of hearts first nnd to follow it with tho queen of spades: because if he leads the spade first and then the heart A will drop tho queen on the king, leaving Z hopelessly in -the lead. "Very pretty," remarked the lawyer, when the solution was shown him. "But I cannot see what difference It makes who haa the Jack and ten of hearts." "That Is the prettiest part of It." explained the doctor. "Had we seen It wo should have saved our fifty. You wlil find the Jack of hearts comes Into action at the ti.ll end of a third varia tion." As will be seen, A has a third discard, the spade. If he lets that go on the sec ond trick, Z must lead the qu.-en of pades at once and Y must overtake It with the king and make his ten of dia monds, Z discarding one of his worth less clubs. Now if A lets go a club, which seems the most natural discard, as ho must keep the winning spade while Y Is In the lead, and two hearts aro necessary to stop Z, Y must give him a spade trick. A having given up his only club, Z discards his remaining club on tlio spade trick that A win II having still command of the suit with the club Jack, Now if A leads the heart queen, Z will make two tricks with the king and six; but if A leads the smaller heart, Y holds the trick with the Jack nnd makes the seven of spades.

Hoot andG. T. Harris, "And that's the variation that needs the Jack of hearts in the dummy, eh?" Inquired the lawyer. "Exactly," agreed the doctor. "Be cause without that card wo can do him In tmo variation. Hut as my partner at once remarked, the real key to the problem was getting Z back Into tho lead with the Jack of diamonds. "An soon as the dealer heard that, ho said it did not make the slightest dif ference, and he would put the Jack of diamonds in tho dummy and give It back his Jack of hearts, dummy taking the ten. This would make everything as in tho solution I have Just shown you except that the two cards, which aro essential to the solution, are shifted." Tho stock broker laughed. "Of course!" he exclaimed, "The transposition of the Jack und ten of dia monds makes no difference. All he has to do is to win the first trick with the ace and lead back the seven, and the ten wins tho trick for Z, Jpst as well as tho Jack did." "Hut you forget," rejoined the doctor, , "that dummy no longer has the Jack of hearts, and we can beat that solution, with the variation I have Just shown you, by making A discard a spado und leading a low heart at tho end. If dummy has not the ten, Z must win Xl'a Jack." 1 "Then It cannot be done," observed the lawyer.

IMNby, Tho comparatively ni.ill number of those who got this problem, us com pared to those thai solved the problem given on January 2 may be accounted for ny ilm fuel that many people thought It could not b- done, severnl writing to say that as live pat liunOs could tie made out of any twenty-live cards, It was manifestly Imixissllile to g't twenty. six cauls thut would not pruritic the same result. Tills belli-f In the ilvo put handa In every twenty-live cards Is one of those popular fallacies whloli .seem to have taken such deep root that no amount, of contradiction will eradicate them. More than a year ago Tub Svs demonstrated In this department that there were sev eral ways of disproving the universal pievnienco or live pat hands In uny twenty-five curds. Hero Is on example out of many, which is a selection sent to Tim Scn by Florence 8. Levy: . Q . .98.6.... 4 A K . . 10 9876. 4. 2 KQ 4 3. A Q ,10 9 8 7 . .4.2 It Is clear that nothing can be done with the trey of diamonds, because there Is not enough of tho suit to make u Hush: the trey connects with no se quence of llvu cards, as theie are no lives In uny suits, und the trey cannot be any part of a full hand. But this Is simply picking out twenty-live cards from which live pat hands cannot bo made, there being no re strletlons upon tho remnlnder of the pack. The problem printed two weeks ago was much more dllllcult than this. After laying aside the ace of Mnadeu it required tho remaining tlfty-one cards to bo divided into two parts, neither of which should contain live pat hands. The solution of this problem depends 011 getting twenty-seven cards that will not yield five pat hands, so that there Bhall bo only twenty-four cards left In the other portion of the pack, from which five hands of any kind are Im possible, Tho cards selected are eight hearts, In sequence from the nine to tho deuce, and the same, thing in clubs und dia monds, to which are added tho king, queen and Jtck of spades. That makes twenty-soven cards, The trick Is In tho three high spades,' which cannot form any purt of a pat hand, nor fill out a Hush, and as thero are no tens In any suit, they cannot mnku up a straight. There may bo some variations of thin notation, but tho principle will be found the same in nil Corcet solutions from: KCIiurlos D Rluildhnin, Dr. Samuel Briekimr himI C II. O'Connor. H No word from anywhere yet on that Wulter Scott cryptogram. 1 The bridge text hooks all say to lead up to weakness and through strength. Very few players understand tho impor tance of leading through strength or the reasons for doing it, and still fewer under' stand the cards with which if' io proper to make such a lead when tho cards led through are known. Still fewer yet un derstand the combinations that spelt weakness if it is anything abovo a seven spot. Both plays, leading to and leading through, refer to one of two situations tho suits wlilch are exposed In the dummy or those in "which a concoalcd hand is inferred to bo Btrong or weak. Plays based on inference cannot bo taught until tho person has learned to draw inferences, so tlio plays based on tlio dummy's ex posed cords are the proper training ground for this twirt of bridgo tactics. The advantage of leading through a suit in which dummy is strong. If you aro on dummy's right with nothing in tho suit yourself, lies lit giving your partner a chance to play after dummy so that ho may mako tricks with car,da which are better than some of dummy's inferior cards. But this advantage cannot' exist unless dummy's cards are not in sequence This is the point that few players grasp. even after considerable practice at the game. If you are on dummy's right there is no uso leading through a suit of king queen jack, although It is unquestionably a strong suit, because Unless your partner lias the ace you cannot get a trick, ond if he plays tho ace dummy's suit is cleared and you have played the opponent's game for him, , But there is a great advantage In lead ing through a suit headed by ace and queen, especially if the declarer has not touched that suit, becauso if your partner has tho intermediate card he kills dummy's queen. If your partner has to lead Op to this suit both ace and queen make. He might hold both king and jack and never make either of them if he led tho suit. If you lead it through he might make both theso cards. When you sit on dummy's left the advantage in leading up to his weak suits lies in the declarer being forced to give up his best cards to protect himself. or your partner will get' tho trick too oheaply. If you play correctly your partner may boablo to kill several of tho declarer's good cards that would have taken tricks had the lead come the other way. The situation is precisely tho same as if you saw the ac'o and queen in the declarer's hand and the king jack in your partner's, dummy having nothine. and the mistake that the beginner usually makes is in losing tho advantage of the lead by failing to play a card'hat will Deal aummyj cut that is a lesson in Itself. Here is a good lUustration of the iimiuiur in which gooa piayera will lead through strength and up to, weakness ana win try to get the same leads re peated.

I Dummy plays the small club, as 2 has the ten, and II row Uib trick "with the queen. Although this was u blind lead on A's part, it suits n very well, and he1 wants to Ret A in to come through another of l s Btronc suits, To return the club would be to make dummy a present of two tricks und throw away tho klntt, because it would be lead ing up to htrength. To lead diamonds would be just as bad, as that U leading up siretiKin. inese are the suits in which It is A's duty to lead through, Tim heart lead Is obvlously;a bad one "while tho pobitlon ot the quoeu Is doubtful. The only correct return lead for B is the spade, whloh is leading up to weakness In V h hand, just as A will be leading up .to the weaknew in Z's hand if lie gets in and plays diamonds. But it would be wrong to lead a small spade, as that would force A to give up an honor to shut out the nine, and if A's honor happened to be tho dee, . could make all the rest or the suit by leading throue.li B's strength later. H therefore leads tlw.ten of spades, so that if the deolorer does not cover it it will hold the trick, as it beats dummy's nine. 7. passes the ten to, avoid clearing up tho suit, and then IS leads the small fipade.ua his partnermust have two htjnorB. If tho declarer had two honors ho would have coveTed the ten. 7j holds the trick, and leads a small heart, that being the suit that is longest between the two builds.
