Hup pose that In the trunk play where Y wins the fifth and sixth tricks with the kin? nml six of diamonds, 11 discards the club. Y must liolil u him losing heart to lead fir the seventh (trick, 7. having dis carded, the heart Jack on the six :t diamonds. The Importance f,f Y's holaing the heart i seven has already ben shown In the strong riefttire. but the most dangcrc.u.1 situation Is whin H leads the club after winning the second trick Mth the ace of diamonds. Y mn' not only be able to win the fifth trick with til kin of diamonds, but to hlld the lead with the even of hrarts, because If he Is left with a small heat!. 7. is Murk with a he.it". n-.ul tun spade trick.

Th- game; The Logical Place to Buy Your Piano BROOKLYN'S BEST KNOWN PIANO HOUSE After nil is suit! and done the satisfactory purchase of a Piano resolves itself into a logical proposition. If you build a house you get a reputable architect, not a jack-of-all-tradcs. If your eye-sight is failing:, you seek a reputable oculist, not a general practitioner. And so the making, the sellipir and the expert knowledge of a Piano is a special biinines.-' in itself. Buying a so-called Piano is sim ple enough, perhaps, but at the same time to buy a service that is going to be permanently help ful to you, cannot possibly be rot from those who merely mer chandise pianos of various un known makes, no-matter how honest the intention may be. Think it over, it is really worth while if you are going to buy. Isn't the Sterling Piano Co. the logical place to buy if you consider that we have been suc cessful manufacturers for over 50 years? That our Pianos and Player pianos have an established value. That the prices arc known and the same to every one. That there can be no chance of misrepresentation, no lack of knowledge about service, and that the real music giving quali ties of your purchase arc permanent. There are lots of so-called cheap Pianos for sale, but don't forget that there is no new way of mak ing them better than they are. Honestly built Pianos cost just as much to make now as they ever did.

At diamonds Y was Bet for one trick, but had simple honors. Thin cost hint 39 points, while nt othere the T-7. end lost 197, a difference of 161, which Is a large saving for Y and 7..
