"SHE WANTS TEA! HOW DO TOD MAKE TEA?"
I *
JOHN COLTER was a soldier with
the Lewis and Clark expedition
that in 1805 set out to explore the
Oregon Territory. The following year
he established a trading post at Big
Horn River and went south in search
of fur animals.
Somewhere on this lone journey
Colter encountered a band of hostile
Indians and wandered many miles out
of his way to save his scaip. finally
stumbling upon the beautiful Yellow
stone Park region.
In the spring of 1810 he returned
to St. Louis and looked up Capt. Clark.
Colter effervesced in his descriptions
of the Grand Canyon of the Yellow
stone, of the beautiful Tower Pails
and of Mount Washburn—scenic won
ders never before visited by white man.
Clark politely listened, but his amaz
ing story was too fantastic for the
public to accept. Colter's closest
friends branded the stories false,
believing them the product of his
imagination.
Hie name "Colter’s Hell’’ w-as given
to the district, and little was thought
of the matter for years. Then, strange
as it seems, the beauties of the section
were rediscovered by other explorers,
and Colter’s claims were justified.

Winning Contract
By THE FOUR ACES.
Duplicate Scores.
QNE of the mo6t interesting hands
for variety of results occurred
in a duplicate game at New York's
Cavendish Club recently. The “swings"
varied all the way from East and We6t
making four hearts doubled to North
and South making a grand slam in
diamonds <although they bid only six).
Duplicate.
North dealer.
Neither side vulnerable.
Final contract: Six clubs doubled.

It might be well to explain how one
East player made four hearts doubled.
South made the unfortunate selection
of the ace of clubs for his opening
lead. East, of course, trumped, and
later played the queen of clubs through
North, thereby establishing two tricks
on which he discarded his two losing
diamonds.
The best final contract for North
and South is six diamonds. With a
heart opening one North player made
seven. Dummy trumped the heart and
followed with the ace and queen of
spades. West refused to cover, and
Declarer discarded a heart. Another
spade lead dropped West's king. De
clarer trumped, then ruffed his last
heart in dummy. Declarer then over
took dummy's queen of diamonds, drew
trumps, re-entered dummy with the
ace of clubs and discarded two small
clubs on the two good spades.
The most amazing result, however,
occurred when South made a con
tract of six clubs doubled, although
his West opponent held two apparently
sure trump tricks. Declarer trumped
the opening heart lead, played the
ace of spades and followed with the
queen. West covered with the king,
Declarer trumped in dummy, trumped
another heart in his hand, cashed
three diamond tricks and then
trumped dummy's last heart. Declarer
next cashed the jack of spades, but
when he followed with another spade,
West trumped with the 10 of club6.
Declarer, who had played the entire
hand on the assumption that West
held all four trumps, now let his
opponent hold the trick. Now West
found himself on lead holding only
the queen, Jack, small of trumps, with
no possible way to win another trick.
