CHRISTMAS MARKETS The Btall Supplied With Best the Country Affords. BRLIANT ARRAY OF EVERGREENS Rare Vegetables Alongside Articles of Every-Day Consumption. THE POULTRY SUPPLY Having completed the Christmas shopping, the good housewives of Washington are now turning their attention to the Christmas dinner. There is a charm and a pardonable pride in the preparation of the meal, and no matter how humble the purse, an extra effort is made to have the Christmas dinner the big household event of the year. King Turkey will reign in even greater splendor than he did -at Thanksgiving, and with him appears the plum pudding, one of the dearest memories of our epicurean forefathers.

This has been superseded in many families by the fruit cake. Chrixtmans Greens. but even now many larders boast the rich and toothsome ensemble of fruit and flour. Washington enjoys the reputation of havIng the best markets of the world. With the rich truch farmers of Maryland and Virginia, almost within the boundaries of the -Ity; with the Inexhaustiable Potomac, with its fish and oysters, kissing its very shores, the city stands geographically In a position to cummand the best the country affords In Attrax-tive Garb.

Re-sle4ndent In a dress of evergreen and boright the- markets of the city are mo st attractivo during the holiday season. Thoy become, indeed, the Me(cca for the shoppe-rs in se-arch of the substantial things in life, and Is this true Crowds of WVashington society quwens visit the mnarkets fach day. OutFi.le the big miarkets; country people have pre--mpited the- public space, and sidewalks utmually bare and uninviting are now bright and pretty with pine. The old colored "squatters" who contribute so much to the picturesqueness of the marts, and who live In the adjacent suburbs, have enlarged their stands, and the small stock of herbs and mushrooms and persimmons has given way to wreaths of holly embellished with red berries and countless yards of running pine woven Into garlands. The Christmas season is waited for by these pour people with more than common Interest.

The receipts from the sale of the evergreens which the woods supply means much to them. It means a new dress, warm underelothing (or a pair of shoes. And so weeks before Christmas the entire family turns out and strips the woods of the holly and pine. The evenIngs are spent In making wreaths or weavIng the crow-foot pine Into garlands. By this time the stock Is complete and many a home will be made brighter by the evergreens they supply.

At the Cente.r market It looks as if some green bit of woodland had been transferred to that vicinity. Approaching from 9th street, the evergreens are encountered at An Expert.n Raligs saue wer hav cmpetey iden hefece ot side wit daity weats ofholl andpin gedo hrksts is Grwneen ttes butyeven no' manytlarers o' a uderi itand too'thsme andal frui and cents," criesgodesenatof tHm repth of hravgrn paing etmak ofte rwold ires ofthe rcmttruohfrmbut oaeuf erandce, pirginiut after thin othe too: hiyar tho." eha ibl otmc with itt ishand, owsesth ksing its every ghres th yandh in poa itin ta commnd those bat then country afs.efnigadfiutfu hog inwdo baktfactes Gtarb.erngit embssofeersAnwhtaapygeenucky mot dureaging the hoses Thay. bconmen, idthe forryh shmall-shar eo of therl' gos.btnta Huk.trws Indulgeingtoncoint. sid te bie mrkt ctry hukpers have caughmte the ergree fever, and sihewrelect muh batieo the rsunesd of the matsty ecoredtisftnds. tnds.

Look over there in the 9th street wing at that wealth of seasonable and unseasonable dainties. Yes, those are real strawberries, and those big Hamburg grapes are fresh cut.

They cost $1.50 a pound, but the wealthy enjoy them. How tempting those hothouse cucumbers look, with the bright red tomatoes grown under glass beside them! What a salad they would makel Then there are new potatoes, just like the ones we got along there in May from the eastern shore. Hello! What's that? It looks for all the world like a water lily. "That is book choy. Twenty-five cents a bunch," says the polite clerk.

You want to know more about that, if you are interested in edibles. He tells you it is Chinese cabbage, but grown in this country, and that it is real good-better and daintier than the boiling partner of corn beef. It comes from Florida. a Yankee truck farmer having imported the seed from the land of the dragon. What a wealth of beauty the florists offer.

Their stands are resplendent with carnations and roses and wreaths of more pretentious design. All flowers are a little higher in price than they were before the holidays, but this is to be expected. You pass down the aisles flanked with stands, all heavy under a profusion of choice vegetables and fruits. Several great black bears, hanging among a drove of deer, attract your eye, and you unconsciously draw near. Whether or not you are a nimrod makes little difference.

All men are interested in the hunt and women love the game. Hung so compactly you cannot recognize the stand are wild ducks from the Potomac river. There are the toothsome canvas-back, king of them all, and his neac relative, the red-head, prince imperial of the royal duck family; mallard, the wary denizens of the 44. A Busy Corner. creeks and marshes; whistlers, widgeon teal, and that game little fellow, the ruddy, all awaiting the touch of that gentle hand which transforms them into edible morsels.

Although the display is large it does not -mean by any means the supply Is great. The mild winter thus far has been bad for ducks, and excellent prices prevail, with a strong demand. Canvasbacks are $5 a pair, red heads. $2 cheaper. Mallards bring $1.50 a pair and they are fine.

Teal are 7. cents a pair and whistlers bring the same price. Ruddy ducks, the diminutive canvasback, are $1 a pair and very scarce. What do they do with the bears? Eat them, of course. Bear steak is said to be fine eating.

It sells for 25 cents a pound. You can get a roast for 20 cents a pound. Only the hams are used, although bear grease sells readily. Venison is plentiful and has hung just long enough. A good steak sells, by the slice, at 80 cents a pound.

A dish of this calls for a little currant jelly. The Toothsome Quail. Nearby quail at $3 a dozen find a ready market. They are in better condition now than at any time this season. Pheasants are scarce and bring $1 each.

There is quite a supply of genuine English birds, although they came from Maryland, where an enterprising dealer keeps an aviary for their propagation. These are worth $3 a pair. Wild turkeys from Virginia command 15 cents a pound. The season for wild turkeys and pheasants is over the day after Ohristmas. The ever-necessary turkey is more in evidence this year than ever before.

The market is completely stocked and the price has been forced down to 12 cents a pound. are plentiful. The broilers are 15 cents and the old birds cernts, Spring roosters command 15 cents and Philadelphia caipons are 18 cents. Puddle ducks are 15 cents and eggs are 30 cents a dozen. Any story of our markets without a mention of the fish would be incomplete.

Potomac fish are known the country over. The dealers are receiving fish from the lower river. Rockish are more scarce and command the best prices.

Two games are appended showing the strong and brilliant play of Mr. A. W. Fox, a recent addition to the ranks of the local chess club. Mr.

Fox has recently returned from a five years' sojourn abroad, and in a few days will go back to complete an educational course. After June he will be permanently located In this city, where his father, Mr. J. W. Fox, resides.

Mr. Fox has the habits of a first-class chess player. Rapid play, the bane of the game, is unknown to him. The most plausible-looking move is not made without premeditation. His genius for the game Is shown in the examples given.

Mr. F. B. Walker of this city, with whom he played, is, as is well known, no tyro in such matters, and if the other fellow doesn't "get the drop on him" soon he is very likely to be doing the same thing himself. Ray Lopes.

Mr. Fox stated that be would have answered Q--Kt4 and was of the opinion that Black must answer It by KR--t, the bishop gttinR a tchu gae and threatens both QiB, to which Black could not reply ELxQ on account of impending mate, and also threatens PiP, whIch wins the bishop.

There are a number of other variations all tending to the me point.

(b) Forming a very neat ending. If RtxKt, IL mates, if QxKt, QJxQ, RxQ, and still the rook mates. This game was pla.yed at Heidelburg by Mr. Fox against one of the local players. Notwithstanding black's poor development, the game Is noteworthy from the remarkable and brilliant manner in which white forced the win.

A stunner, and uncommonly bright play.

He must take, as it is mate next move. (d) He ogers the third piece, but Black resigns. "Phrady" in the Brooklyn Eagle says in regard to the long-delayed seventh American chess congress, "It is not so long ago that a good deal was said and written concerning a seventh American chess congress and quite a few strong pleas were made that some one might undertake the project. The time has been passing fast, but nothing of the kind has been attempted, despite the clamor throughout the country. And now we are almost on the eve of another great European gathering, and America must needs play the part of an onlooker again.

Verily, It is enough to jar the sensibilities of a man with patriotic tendencies. Here is France, where they do not play one-tenth as much chess as we do, holding a second big tournament, within a year, whtHe Columbia sits idly by with folded hands. In the transatlantic republic (France) the playing of chess, to judge by the scanty amount of literature devoted to it, Is confined largely to the inner sanctuaries and the 'players are, comparatively, but little in the public eye. Over here the reverse is the case. There are clubs and associations without number, matches and tournaments galore, and countless correspondence games.

Moreover, publicity without stint is accorded to the doings of the game's devotees who are energetic enough to be up and at it. We can take credit foi- having promoted three different kind's of cable matches, something to be proud of, It Is true, but we atop here, and have allowed a decade to slip by without having iqvited the World's great experts to visit us in a body.

America's apathy in this direction is not at all edifying, and one cannot blame the chess patriot if, perchance, his soul be troubled.

The third member of the District's contingent in the correspondence match East vs. West is Dr. E. R. Lewis.

One point of management to the directors of this big match was, how are the players to be matched? After quite an amount of discussion over the table and through the papers, it was agreed to match the players as nearly as possible by their known playing strength. One of the defects of this plan will be to bring some of the best players out of the finish with lost games and some of the worst players with won games. Mr. Walker of this city is paired with Harry F. Lee of Chicago, Dr.

E. R. Lewis. Washington, against James Tarbell. Alton, and C.

W. Seaman, Washington, against B. L. Reece, Yazoo City, Miss. The appended very interesting game was recently played in London to give a test to the invention of Prof.

Rice, known as the Rice gambit. This opening was discussed in The Star about two years since, on the occasion of a visit of the professor to this city. Several games were contested by him using this opening against local players, with great success. Rice Gambit. Lasker.

White stands to lose the Queen, R-4 being thratened, yet the two passed pawns are more than sufficient to counterbalance the loss of the queen, and Black can no more save the game. 8AENGERBUND BOWLERS BEATEN. CoumbiaS, Won Two Ganmes by Not Paticiularly Good Work. The Columbia Bowling Club defeated the Saengerbund team two out of three games at the Columbia alleys last night. The games were not particularly well bowled, though the Columbias crossed the 800 notch once in the series.

The Saengers were a rather sleepy lot and did not play at all like the two-time champions that they are. Possibly the most interesting feature of the contest wasn the work of the rooters, which wasn loud and long. Both teams had good shouters on hand, and while the Columbias got most of the cheering, the visiting five was well applauded. -McKinley was again entered on the Colum8bia five, and, after warming up in the first game, he played two excellent scores and materially aided in the victories of the side. -Scanlon was somewhat off form and had one bad game, though he later made up for It.

Mason continued the good work which he has done in the last two matches participated in by the Columbias and he has apnarently got safely away from the bad streak that wasn with him earlier in the season. None of the Saengers maintained a good average, though there were a number of good Individual game. on the team's score. Laue was again very much too ill to take part In the games, but his presence was demanded on account of the absence of Jorss, and the veteran got in tw games after the firt. Romaker dropped away off in the second game and he was less than In his other games with the Saengers.

An effort has been made to have the grounds of the new Washington base ball club located at Anacostia. Gentlemen interested in the Moore tract of eighteen acres, fronting on Nichols avenue, in Anacostla, have been the movers in the project. Mr. F.

C. Stevens of the Washington and Electric Company was interviewed as to street car facilities, and promised to look after that phase in the event of the grounds being secured the purpose named. Real estate men and others then called upon Manager James Manning to d.ucuss the plan. but they were given to under. stand that he had secured two options on1 pIeces of land In the northeast section of the city for his ball park.

It is said the Moore tract may be opened by a syndicate as an amateur athletic park. One of the available sites for base ball grounds inspected by Manager Manning during his recent visit to Washington was the square bounded by North Capitol and 1st northeast and and atr.eets, used asg dcircus grounds. He expressed his approval Df the location, which Is accessible either Ellrectly or by transfer by all the L.nes of the Washington Traction and Electric Company. The grounds are about 000 feet square and are ample for the purposes of a ball park. Christina.

Sale of Groceries. A great Christmas sale of groceries I 13 i progress at Johnston's popular place, Noa 729 and 781 7th street, and the stock comprises a full line of nuts, fruits, sweets and delicacies and standard table supplies of every description. The prices, as customary at Johnston's, are extremely reasonable. H. quotes eggs, so necessary for cakes, ostards, to ay nothing of Christmas nlog, at 22kcents a dosen, while the quoted market price is 28 cents.

Other stated things, as well as luxuries, are being disposed of at similar bargain prices, conssjuently the crowds at Johnston's are not surprising. Sarah Harrity today pleaded guilty in thle Police Court of the larceny of 160 from leA A. Schaffer, and Judge Kimbanl held bese for the action of the grand jury.
