Jan. 26.-The first seri- cua trouble caused by the striking em- ployes of the Chicago and Southeastern Railway company occurred here at i o'clock Monday evening, when the westbound express train was seized by the strikers and sidetracked.

Superintendent Harney holds that Professor Tansell had a right to be- etow his affections where he pleased, and intimates that the charges are the result of jealousy. As to the antichurch charge, the evidence showed the statement to have been made during the recess and the pupils were therefore compelled not to take notice of it. The school is disrupted.

Snow Causes the Low of One Life-Railway Traffic Impeded. Chicago, Jan. :.'6.-A blinding snow =torm which raged all day yesterday did considerable damage to this city, rnac.e trouble for street car companies and railways, and caused the loss of one life. Charles Munchy, a laborer, was repairing the top of the ninety-foot tower of the Iroquois Furnace company, when owing to the wind, which at times blew at the rate of sixty mile an hour, he lost his hold and fell to the ground. He was instantly killed. The suburban service on the railroads as well as tae street railways was delayed for hours. Many trains from outside points were S now-bound. and all behind schedule time South Chicago was practically isolated last evening:, as far as railway was concerned, and the towns it were in almost as .In- it csi never be quite settled. The score as duplicate whist is frequently a more w, less uncertain quantity. Between two teams only, be they pairs or fours or more on a side, of course the question is merely, •Which gets the greater number of tricks? In this case both parties play precisely the same cards under similar conditions, and the comparison is therefore easy. But suppose there are three or more teams en- £aKed in a game, so that all cannot have the same hands, then what do we mean by the "score?" To simplify the discus- «icm so far as possible I shall refer only to the "progressive" or "multitabie" game for pairs What is the "score" at this e Ttbink that whist players have falsely assumed the averaging method of scoring to be tbe only fair and logical one. It was introduced by Mitchell, the inventor of the "compass" game, in whiGh half the pairs olay constantly North and South and half East a-d West. All tbe tricss taken North and South are divided by the number of pairs in that direction; the quotient is called the North and South "average, aud the "score" of each North and South pair is computed by comparing its aggregate of tricks won with the "average. In this wav a pair receives a "plus" score if it wins "more than the average number of tricks and a "minus" score if less. Ibc East and "West scores are handled in exactly the same manner, independently of the North and South. Now I do not doubt ior a moment that Mitchell's averaging system is reasonably fair and on account of its simplicity is perhaps the best for his progressive game. But just because it seems to work all right, people ought not to assume that it Is the ideal method of scoring. As a matter of fact, it is open to the grave objection r^'Sr-th^iffpS.'Ssss: i *«* *. -pho.no*,-, ent tables, or, in brief, to bo affected by tall. eels, Terrible Has Not Been I«socd.

This in the "luck" of dupliwite whist for pairs, and it cancoc be eliminated from the game, so far as I know. If somebody will explain how it can be, ho will perform a most valuable service to whisters. The fault is certainly fatal to the pretensions of the averaging system to be tae ideal method of scoring. There is, however, in this system a Haw that has not received much attention from whist mathematicians. An example will show what I mean. ' Suppose the North and South average is 184 tricks, and the: East and West average is 128, and that the top North and South pair takes 19-i, while the top East and West pair takes 13b. Then each of these top pairs scores ten tricks "plus," and both hove the same standing. This resuls I believe to bu distinctly inequitable. The East and West hands are much weaker than the others, and the feat of beating the average ten tricks with weak hands is a proposition quite different from doing the same thing with strong ones. To equalize matters, some method of percentages ought to be used. I am HOD prepared to say just what method, but a simple one would be to take the ratio of the pair score to the average. By this plan our top North and South pair would be credited with 1.054 "per cent, ' the quotient of 194 divided by 184. T.b« East and West top would be 138 divided by 128, or 1.078 "per cent." Thus a distinction would be made, as it certainly ought to be, between equal "pluses" with unequal hands. I have had the fortune—good or bad according to the way you look at it—to invent several methods of play at duplicate whist, the most important of which is n system for pairs by which every pai.r meets every other pair. The averaging method of scoring being not easily adaptable to this game, I have recommended the simpler plan of comparing each deal score with the maximum actually made instesid Of the average. By this method the "score" of each psjr is a lot of "losses,' as compared with "masuriums." The pair with the smallest loss is tbe winner. By averaging tho losses a "plus" or "minus" score may be computed for each pair. This score :is seldom precisely tbe same as that nv.koiiecS by Mitchell's plorj, but it fairly represents, I believe, the relative standing of the pairs engaged. Still, it has been criticised, mainly on the ground of "luck." Eeally it contains no more "luck" than tbe averaging method. It only seems to, because by the averaging method the details of the score are lost eight of in tbe bunching process at'the end of the. game, whereas by the maxiimiiu method tho "fall downs" on every deal are clearly exhibited. I know there are flaws in the maximum method, but cla.irc they are no greater than the flaws in uny other method- Some clubs are tryini; to apply the averaging process to my gtuae for pairs, but with little success. It is s clumsy process as compared with the method of usajsrunuma, and it yields results not a bit more satisfactory. The real trouble is that whist players think tho scoring of pairs may be reduced to an exact science without any luck i:o it. They arc mistaken. They must take their chances and not corn plain because'they Ret "soaked" occasionally by other people's blunders. I have played under the maximum system constantly for about thrve years and J ara not a "lucky" player, but I may candidly say that 1 do not recollect a siingle instance of failing to make a good score when I played good whist or of coming out far from tbe bottom when my whist was bad. It may be that the contrast between good whist and bad, between strong players and weak, is greater undei 1 the maximum method than under the averaging method of scoring. But is this unfair? My excuse for writing this article !» not that of personal defense. It is the pointing out of the face that the element of Incfc at duplicate whist is still considerable, though much less than at old fashioned "straight. '* As my Mead Fisher ^mes is fond of de- fOaring, the chance element at duplicate whist, combined with its opportunities for the display of pore skill, is one reason for its great popularity. If there were no chance in it, the best players wonld always win, and the weaker ones wonld goon lose their Interest YOB canacit »» Neumann's Kival.

Gelet Burgess, formerly of San .'Francisco, is now making quite a stir in tbe metropolis. Burgess was the editor and founder of The Lark, a curious periodical issued in San Franciscoforabout2)-2 years. Its illustrations -were printed on india proof paper and gummed to tbe rough heavy stock on which the letter press was p'rinted. Many of the drawings were made by Ernest C. Pei.xotto, but Burgess, who wields a deft pencil as well as a clever pen, made some of them. Mr. Peisotto is also in New York just now, but the two are not working together. Mr. Burgess bas conceived a strong liking for Oliver Herford's pictures, and these two some monies ago planned to establish a periodical here to be entitled L'Enfant Terrible. It bas undoubtedly received a larger amount of free advertising in advance than any other similar venture ever projected. Both Burgess and Herford have many friends among the newspaper editors and literary critics, and upon receiving notice of the proposed publication these gentlemen almost fell over one another in their baste to compliment it aibead of publication. But for reasons which have not been widely explained L'Enfant Terrible bas not yet made its appearance and the date of its first issue seems still to be unfixed. A friend of ilr. Herford's, on meeting him the other day, inquired with some solicitude as to when publication wonld begin. The artist looked searebinglynpon his inquisitor and then said in the most solemn manner posa ble: "Well, really, I don't know that we shall get it out at all.
