“WHY DONT YOU WAIT AND GET MARRIED IN JUNE? I
ALWAYS DO."
-
piRST published translation of the
Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam into
! English was that of Edward FitzGer
ald, which left the presses on Febru
ary 15. 1859. Copies were advertised
for sale at 1 shilling each, but English
readers evidently did not care for the
Persian gems.
Today copies of the small first edi
tion of FitzGerald are priceless: one
sold at auction recently for $2,500.
First Typewriter.
To Christopher Latham Sholes, Mil
waukee. Wis., newspaper editor and
collector of customs, goes credit for
inventing the world's first typewriter.
! Sholes had already made a device
' for numbering papers, and he con
i ceived the idea that a machine to print
copy would greatly speed the efficiency ;
| of offices. I
Sholes made his first machine from i
an old telegraph key with the letter
“W" filed on one end of it, which
struck upward onto a glass plate.
In June. 1868, Sholes patented his
complete device. A manufacturer was
interested in putting the typewriters
on the market and in 1874 400 were
sold.

The first three rounds of bidding
at both tables were the same. How
ever. at table number one on the fourth
round East bid seven diamonds, which
was doubled and set four tricks. At
table number two East passed in the
vain hope that the six-spade contract
would be set. As a matter of fact,
his hopes would have been realized if
the declarer, Charles Lockridge, had
not exercised great care.
The opening lead was the three of
diamonds. Declarer ruffed in dummy,
played the ace of clubs, ruffed a club,
returned to dummy by ruffing a second
diamond, ruffed another low club in
his hand, and drew trumps, ending
in dummy. He cashed the king of
clubs, on which he discarded the heart
deuce, and now played the four of
hearts from dummy, intending to duck.
In an effort to keep his partner from
being thrown In the lead, East went
up with the nine, but this did no good,
since declarer simply played the
queen. West won with the king, and
now, since the diamond lead would
allow declarer to ruff in dummy and
discard his one remaining heart, West
returned the five of hearts, whereupon
dummy's six forced East’s Jack, and
the contract was made.
